John 3:19-21;NET The basis for judging is that the light (the source of truth) has come into the world but people loved the darkness (the source of the lie) rather than the light, because their deeds were evil.
v20 For everyone who does evil deeds hates the light and does not come to the light, so that their deeds will not be exposed. But the one who practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God.
Heb 4:12; God's Word is alive and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword and it pierces between the soul and the spirit and judges the thoughts and intents of the stream of consciousness.
James 1:20; Man's anger (emotion) does not perform God's righteousness.
Hosea 8:7; They sow to the wind and reap the whirlwind...
Hosea 4:6;b Because you have rejected God's law God will reject your children.
We are presently in a study of the doctrine of the winners whose children are never rejected Deut 7:9; James 4:6-8a; those who live in the world but are not of the world John 17:16; those whom the world does not deserve Heb 11:38;
Winners are the unknown, unsung heroes of history who testify of the veracity of God's perfect integrity in the spiritual darkness, deception, propaganda, lies, deceit and death of the devil's world during human history where God is invisibly conducting the criminal prosecution of satan and the fallen angels by empirically demonstrating that their false allegations are lies. Rev 12:9-11;
Winners are those who are the targets of God's grace imputations because they have capacity from believing the faith aka the doctrine that is comprised of God's word of truth with the result that they become the ones who God sustains to press His doctrinal advance in the spiritual deception and death that engulfs the devil's world.
God demonstrates His unfailing integrity love for every person who is enslaved by the deception of satan's cosmic systems and makes provision for each one to be freed. 1Tim 2:4; Rom 5:8; 2Cor 5:21; Gal 5:1;
We have seen that it is the winner's doctrinal viewpoint that creates capacity for God's grace imputation. When the believer's viewpoint is based on God's Word of truth, truth becomes the target for the imputation of God's grace that is the exclusive basis for freedom, prosperity and happiness.
At this point in our study we are noting that the consequence of the rejection of God's Word of truth is inversion of thought that creates unrighteousness and injustice. This occurs because the natural person does not understand God 1Cor 2:14;
This means that without continuous daily renovation of our thinking from God's Word of there is continuous daily degeneration of our thinking from satan's lies and deception. This means that if we are not actively pursuing truth we are passively rejecting truth.
Rejection of the truth is reason why demon viewpoint thinking has overthrown divine establishment viewpoint thinking in our nation with the result that there is massive unrighteousness and injustice everywhere, criminals are not being prosecuted and instead the innocent are accused of being criminals. Isa 5:20-23; NET note 51
God's judicial case against this injustice is described in Hosea 4:1-6; that was written in 721BC regarding the northern kingdom of Israel because of their rejection of truth resulted in inversion of thought. Since God's Word is immutable these same principles apply to every other nation including the USA.
Last time we made it through verse 1 and left off in Hosea 4:2; where we saw that " swearing and deception" refer to perjury, disinformation, deception and propaganda. The Hebrew word "alah" translated swearing refers to making an oath so it refers to lying under oath in a court of law aka perjury.
"killing and stealing" Killing refers to homicide. The Hebrew word translated "killing" is the qal active participle of "ratsach" that refers to the crime of murder not the legitimate function of the military in the destruction of the nation's enemies.
"Killing and stealing" is criminal activity and the two of them together describe the degeneration of a nation whose people have no morals because they have rejected all standards of thinking from doctrine so they are functioning on the basis of the unrestrained lust patterns of their OSN and their emotions.
When the people of a nation reject Bible doctrine they automatically reject the moral standards that God's Word reveals with the result that the nation begins to self destruct because the cultural integrity that had previously united the nation is under assault and being destroyed. Rom 1:21-32 NET
Hosea 4:2c; NIV" and committing adultery they break all bounds and bloodshed follows bloodshed", this isn't simply talking about adultery, it is talking about sexual assault and rape.
"Bounds" is a reference to moral restraints so it means that "they break all moral restraints to commit adultery." this is a situation where people are assaulted and forced against their volition as in Gen 19:4-5; Net note 10 and Deut 22:25-27; NET
