STUDY FOR FEAST OF UN-LEAVENED BREAD
WICKEDNESS DESCRIBED: MANY WILL BE SHOCKED AT HOW MUCH THE LORD TALKS ABOUT WICKEDNESS; GOD BEING LOVE, WHY SO MUCH ABOUT WICKEDNESS? WELL GOD IS LOVE, BUT TO ENTER HIS KINGDOM A PERSON MUST COME TO REPENTANCE - AND THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT GOD CLASSIFIES AS SIN OR WICKEDNESS, AND REPENT OF WICKEDNESS. HENCE IT IS ONLY PROPER THAT TRUE LOVE FROM GOD MEANS HE MUST GIVE SOME EMPHASIS TO WICKEDNESS.
FROM NAVE'S TOPICAL BIBLE

Gen. 18:20. And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous.

Deut. 9:13. The Lord spake unto me, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people. 24. Ye have been rebellious against the Lord from the day that I knew you.
Deut. 32:10. He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. 32. Their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter. 33. Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
1 Sam. 24:13. As saith the proverb of the ancients, Wickedness proceedeth from the wicked: but mine hand shall not be upon thee.
Kin. 21:20. And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the Lord.
Chr. 28:10. And now ye purpose to keep under the children of Judah and Jerusalem for bondmen and bondwomen unto you: but are there not with you, even with you, sins against the Lord your God? 22. In the time of his distress did he trespass yet more against the Lord: this is that king Ahaz.
Ezra 9:11. Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.
Job 14:4. Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.
Job 15:16. How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water? 20. The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor. 21. A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. 22. He beheveth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword. 23. He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. 24. Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. 25. For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty. 26. He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers: 27. Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks. 28. And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps. 29. He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth. 30. He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away. 31. Let' not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompense. 32. It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green. 33.

Job 22:5. Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities infinite?
Job 24:2. Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof. 3. They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge. 4. They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together. 5. Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them, and' for their children. 6. They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked. 7. They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold. 8. They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter. 9. They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor. 10. They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry. 11. Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst. 12. Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them. 13. They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof. 14. The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief. 15. The eye also, of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face. 16. In the dark they dig through houses, to which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light. 17. For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death. 18. He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards. 19. Drought and heat consume, the snow waters; so doth the grave those which have sinned. 20. The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree. 21. He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow. 22. He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life. 23. Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways. 24. They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.
Psa. 5:9. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
Psa. .7:14. Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. 15. He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. 16. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
Psa. 10:4. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek, after God: God is not in all his thoughts. 5. His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. 6. He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. 7. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. 8. He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. 9. He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. 10. He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones. 11. He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
Psa. 36:1. The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. 2. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful. 3. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good. 4. He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
Psa, 37:12, The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
Psa. 49:20. Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
Psa. 50:17. Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 18. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 19. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
Psa. 52:1. Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually. 2. Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. 3. Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. 4. Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou, deceitful tongue.
Psa. 53:1. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. 2. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. 3. Everyone of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 4. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God. 5. There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.
Psa. 58:3. The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. 4. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear. 5. Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
Psa. 59:6. They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city. 7. Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
Psa. 64:3. Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words: 4. That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. 5. They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them? 6. They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
Psa. 73:4. For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. 5. They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men. 6. Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment. 7. Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish. 8. They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily. 9. They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth. 10. Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. 11. And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? 12. Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
Psa. 94:3. Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph? 4. How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? 5. They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict thine heritage. 6. They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless. 7. Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it. 8. Understand, ye brutish among the people, and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
Psa. 119:155. Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.
Psa. 119: Horror has taken hold of me, because of the wicked that forsake thy law.

Prov. 2:12. To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; 13. Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness. 14. Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked. 15. Whose ways are crooked, and they are froward in their paths. 16. To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; 17. Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. 18. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. 19. None that go to her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.
Prov. 4:16. They sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
Prov. 6:12. A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth. 13. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers. 14.

Isa. 1:4. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. 5. Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. 6. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.
Isa. 3:9. The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not.
SO ARE OUR NATIONS TODAY WHO HAVE GONE SO FAR THAT TO SAY ANYTHING AGAINST THE "GAY LIFE-STYLE" IS BEING A BIGOT, EVEN HATEFUL, AND INTOLERANT - Keith Hunt
Isa. 5:11. Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink: that continue until night, till wine inflame them! 12. And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. 18. Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope. 19. That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it. 20. Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. 21. Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight. 22. Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink. 23. Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him. 24. Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust, because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. 25. Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

Isa. 30:1. Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin. 9. This is a rebellious people; lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord. 10. Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy, deceits. 11. Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
SUCH IS EVER MORE HAPPENING IN OUR NATIONS MONTH BY MONTH, YEAR BY YEAR - Keith Hunt
Isa. 32:6. For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. 7. The instruments also of the churl are evil; he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

Isa. 59:2. But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. 3. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity: your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. 4. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. 5. They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. 6. Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. 7. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. 8. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
OH HOW THIS DESCRIBES OUR NATIONS TODAY - Keith Hunt
Isa. 63:19. We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name.
Jer. 2:22. For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord God. 23. How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? see thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done: thou art a swift dromedary traversing her ways. 24. A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her. 25. Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.
Jer. 3:5. Behold, thou hast spoken and done evil things as thou couldest.

THIS IS SPEAKING TO ISRAEL AND JUDAH - Keith Hunt
Jer. 5:4. Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God. 5. I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the Lord, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds. 26. For among my people are found wicked men; they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. 27. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. 28. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
AGAIN TO OUR NATIONS TODAY - Keith Hunt
Jer. 6:7. As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds. 15.

Jer. 9:3. They bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the Lord. 4. Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. 5. And they will deceive everyone his neighbour and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. 6. Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the Lord.
THROUGH THE DECEIT OF THE CARNAL MIND OUR NATIONS MOVE MORE INTO WICKEDNESS - Keith Hunt
Jer. 11:8. Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: 15. What hath my beloved to do in mine house, seeing she hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest.

Jer. 30:12. For thus saith the Lord, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous. 13. There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. 14. All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased. 15. Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee.
WE AS NATIONS HAVE GONE PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN - Keith Hunt

OUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT AS WE GET OLD IN OUR WICKEDNESS - Keith Hunt
Hos. 9:10. I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the first-ripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baal-peor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.
Hos. 13:12. The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. 23. And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves. 25. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature. 27. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. 29. Being filled with all unrighteousnes, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers. 30. Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents. 31. Without understanding, cove-nantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32. Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them, that do them.
Rom. 2:8. Contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness.
Rom. 3:10. As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. 11. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth [practices] good, no, not one. 13. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14. Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness. 15. Their feet are swift to shed blood.16. Destruction and misery are in their ways. 17. And the way of peace have they not known. 18. There is no fear of God before their eyes.
Rom. 8:5. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh. 7. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Rom. 9:8. They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God.
Eph. 2:1. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins. 2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. 3. Among whom also we all had our conversation [conduct] in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and we're by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 12. At that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from, the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having, no hope, and without God in the world.
Eph. 4:17. Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind. 18. Having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart. 19. Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
Eph. 5:11. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.12. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Phil. 2:15. A crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.
Col. 1:21. Alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works.
1 Thess. 5:7. They that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
2 Thess. 1:8. Them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Tim. 1:9. Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10. For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves
with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.
2 Tim. 3:2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. 3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good. 4. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts. 7. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth, men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was. 10. But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose; faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11. Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
Tit. 1:15. Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 16. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
Tit. 3:3. For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
2 Pet. 2:10, But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities [when the dignities are good - Keith Hunt]. 12. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13. And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the daytime. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you. 14. Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 15. Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness. 16. But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbade the madness of the prophet. 17. These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought inbondage.
1 John 3:8. He that committeth [practices] sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 10. In this the children of God are manifest and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth [practices] not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 14. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15. Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
Jude 12. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear; clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots. 13. Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Rev. 3:17. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. 18. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
I THINK YOU SHOULD NOW SEE THAT SIN, WICKEDNESS, EVIL, CORRUPTION OF MIND AND BODY; ANYTHING THAT GOD TERMS AS "WICKEDNESS" IS CONTRARY TO THE HOLY RIGHTEOUSNESS OF A PERFECT HOLY GOD. AS YOU COMPARE RIGHTEOUSNESS WITH WICKEDNESS IN GOD'S WORD, YOU CAN SEE WHY BEING MADE AT ONE WITH GOD, BEING RECONCILED TO GOD, BEING FORGIVEN OF SINS THROUGH THE SACRIFICE OF CHRIST, COMING UNDER THE GRACE OF GOD, MEANS WE MUST HAVE A REPENTANT HEART AND MIND. HENCE ALL THE VERSES IN THE BIBLE ON REPENTANCE, ON A CHANGE OF ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLY LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS OF GOD. AS THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID, A PUTTING AWAY OF THE OLD MAN, AND A PUTTING ON OF THE NEW MAN THROUGH CHRIST. IT MEANS AN ATTITUDE OF MIND THAT IS WILLING TO KNOW THE WILL OF GOD, HAVING THE MIND OF CHRIST IN US, SO THEN DOING AS JESUS SAID, "MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD." IT MEANS WE MEDITATE AND OBEY THE STUDIES ALREADY GIVEN CONCERNING THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AS GIVEN BY JESUS AND PAUL AND OTHER APOSTLES. IT MEANS WE LOVE THE TRUTH [JESUS SAID GOD'S WORD IS TRUTH - JOHN 17:17]; IT MEANS WE SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES [AS JESUS SAID TO DO]; IT MEANS WE PROVE ALL THINGS AND HOLD FAST TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD [AS PAUL WAS INSPIRED TO TELL US]; IT MEANS AS PETER TOLD US, "GROW IN GRACE AND KNOWLEDGE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST." IT MEANS AS PAUL TOLD US, "LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU WHICH WAS IN CHRIST JESUS." IT MEANS AS JESUS TAUGHT, "BLESSED ARE THEY WHO HUNGER AND THIRST AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS, FOR THEY SHALL BE FILLED."
ALL OF THIS IS WHAT WE THINK ABOUT, MEDITATE ABOUT, STUDY ABOUT, HAVE AN ATTITUDE ABOUT ALL THE TIME, BUT ESPECIALLY DURING THE PASSOVER AND FEAST OF UN-LEAVENED BREAD.
