It is no big secret that the wicked hate those who love righteousness, but since God is a just and loving God He is not slack in His word of what wickedness is to Him. (Psalm 11:4-7). The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men. The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
Scripture speaks strongly of what iniquity and wickedness means to the one who created us, and we will all be held accountable for our actions one day. All things we do in this life we are given should be in honour of the Lord, therefore there is no room to act upon wickedness knowing full well it is against the one we serve! The eyes of the Lord are upon the ways of man, but the wicked destroys himself by his evil choices. (Proverbs 5:21-23) For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings. His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins. He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray…..(Proverbs 10:27-32).
Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
