“Who Are the Wicked?”
I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before their eyes. In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin. The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful; they fail to act wisely or do good. Even on their beds they plot evil; they commit themselves to a sinful course and do not reject what is wrong. Psalm 36:1-4
The Psalmist, David, received a message from God, in his heart. This message was concerning the TRUE NATURE of a WICKED person. First, David says that: “There is NO FEAR, (the word “fear” here means “dread”), of God before their eyes. In other words they SAY or DO whatever is in their HEART, without regard for the precepts of the ALMIGHTY GOD.
Having NO FEAR or DREAD of God, the WICKED person lives in sin or practices it continually. They FLATTER themselves, soothing their own guilty conscience, in order to HIDE their iniquities, because if they saw their lifestyle from God’s point of view, they would absolutely HATE it.
And because of their WICKED, UNGODLY ways, their life has become WORTHLESS. Their words are WICKED and DECEITFUL; they FAIL to act WISELY or to do GOOD. And they REFUSE to REJECT EVIL. They even PLOT EVIL DEEDS, while on their bed going to sleep. They REJECT any SPIRITUAL DEALINGS, especially concerning their SALVATION, through the LORD JESUS CHRIST. They are CONTENT with living in their SINFUL, WICKED WAYS, headed to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE. Are you one of the WICKED?
You are, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God. In order to become a TRUE BELIEVER in CHRIST, one, who has an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and being able to ESCAPE HELL, you MUST BE WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be CHANGED from being WICKED to being RIGHTEOUS before God, and ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
