“THE MEANING OF WICKEDNESS” CONCLUSION!

Review Saturday’s lesson.

Some of the character traits of wickedness include:

A. Abominable– Revelation 21:8, But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

B. Destructive– Isaiah 59:7, “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.

C. Boastful– Psalm 10:4, The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.”

D. Blinded– 2 Corinthians 4:4, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

E. Covetous– Romans 1:29, “Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,”

F. Blasphemes– Luke 22:65, “And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.”

G. Deceitful– Roman 3:13, Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:”

III. The Application 

I found that Jeremiah faced a wicked and rebellious people in 2:19, Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts.”

He reprimands them for Idolatry and wickedness in verse 7, And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.”
