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.
Gal 6:7-8; Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Hosea 8:7; They sow to the wind and reap the whirlwind...
2Cor 13:11; For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.
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.
God's grace imputations to believers are so HUGE that they are incomparable to the adversity and suffering that they endure during their life in the devil's world. Rom 8:18; NET
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 falsely accused and convicted of alleged criminality 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 into the last part of verse 2. 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 22:22-29;NET This is God's answer to #metoo.
This is also one of the reasons why Jesus did not answer the evil civil deep state who brought the woman they had framed for adultery in an attempt to trick Him, John 8:3-11; because according to the Mosaic Law both the man and the woman would have to be put to death.
"Bloodshed follows bloodshed refers to chronic unrestrained violence and criminality that no one stops. This means that verse two refers to the consequences of the indictment from God's case in the first verse.
God's indictment against them is no doctrine, no integrity love, and no knowledge of God. Hosea 4:1;
Under the principle of as goes the believer in the nation so goes the nation under the "pivot" or "salt of the earth" principle God's case is against believers in the nation who have rejected His Word and replaced it with demon doctrines.
In the ancient world salt was used as a preservative, and when salt is used as a preservative the food didn't spoil. Because of this God's Word refers to doctrinal believers as the salt of the land.
This means that if we persistently study doctrine and advance to the high ground of the supergrace life then there is blessing by association that preserves the freedom and prosperity of the nation. Deut 7:9;
People may or may not agree with you regarding the importance of Bible doctrine but when Bible doctrine is resident in your soul and you stand your ground it means that people, even unbelievers, are going to have to function on the basis of doctrinal principles when they deal with you.
This is why the deep state and the progressives hate our president.
Believers who hold their ground with doctrine preserve the nation by slowing down the decomposition of the nation. 2Thes 2:3-7; tells us that this principle extends to the entire world.
