Psalm 11:5 KJV “The Lord trieth the righteous: but THE WICKED and him that loveth violence HIS SOUL HATETH.”
You and I have been told, “God hates the sin not the sinner.” That is a lie from the Devil. The verse above makes it very clear just how deeply God hates wicked people; “HIS SOUL HATETH,” them the Bible says. That’s deep! God hates the wicked with His innermost being; His soul!
Again God’s hatred is not just for the sin but also for the willful sinner. No wonder those who deliberately keep on sinning have no forgiveness:
Hebrews 10:26-27 NLT “Dear friends, IF WE DELIBERATELY CONTINUE SINNING after we have received knowledge of the truth, THERE IS NO LONGER ANY SACRIFICE that will cover these sins.  There is only THE TERRIBLE EXPECTATION OF GOD’S JUDGMENT and the raging fire that will consume his enemies.”
Notice in the passage above if we continue sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, we’re done. Jesus’ sacrifice doesn’t cover these kinds of sins or the sinner. The only thing we can expect is God’s fiery Judgment. Because we are God’s enemies. And you’re listening to these fake preachers that are telling everyone, “God loves everybody?” “He’s not angry with you because of your sins?” When God Himself says, ‘I HATE THE WICKED? AND THOSE WHO LOVE VIOLENCE?’ Hmmmmmm.
“PEACE, PEACE,” WHEN THERE IS NONE
Jeremiah 6:14 NIV “They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace.”
God told Jeremiah (His true prophet) that the priest and prophets were lying to people by telling them sweet religious phrases like, “Peace, peace,” when there was no peace. The nation was steeped in sin. The worse sins! These fake prophets were hurting the people by dressing up their wound instead of exposing it. They treated the people’s sins against the Lord like they were not serious. The Israelites were doing everything from murder, to adultery, to witchcraft, making their own children pass through the fire as human sacrifices to the false god Baal! They literally burned their children alive to a false deity as a burnt offering! (Jeremiah 19:5) And all these false priest and prophets had to say to the people were nice words of blessings and peace? 😣😤
The same goes on today. Instead of saying, “Peace, peace,” they say things like “Blessed, blessed.” “You’re blessed.” “I’m blessed.” “I’m blessed and highly favored.” “Praise the Lord.” “He’s my Jehovah Jireh.” “The Lord’s favor is with you,” “My God from Zion.” etcetera, you get the point. All of these sweet sounding cliches and blessings people heap on themselves and others are masking serious problems. The same ones Israel had. People believe the more holy they act the more they can hide their sins. And these fake preachers, false apostles, fake prophets and prophetesses are dressing up the wounds of the people like it’s not serious.
Jehu was not that kind of guy. He didn’t play with God or with unrepentant sinners. Listen to how he responded when he was addressed with this fake, “Peace, peace,” mess:
2 Kings 9:22 KJV “And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?”
Jehu didn’t play the fake religion game. He didn’t lavish on people phony praise and cliches. He rebuked and exposed evil. He knew there could be no fake peace with unrepentant sinners who were practicing witchcraft. May we follow his example.
Romans 16:17-18 NIV “I urge you, brothers and sisters, to WATCH OUT for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. KEEP AWAY FROM THEM.  For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. BY SMOOTH TALK and FLATTERY they DECEIVE THE MINDS OF NAIVE PEOPLE.”
