Psa 14:1; The person who says there is no God is a fool.
Psa 111:10; Wisdom begins with respect for God
2Thes 2:15; Fellow believers, stand your ground and keep on holding on to the traditions which you were taught....
James 1:20; Man's anger (emotion) does not perform God's righteousness.
2Cor 13:8; For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.
Psa 14:2; The Lord looks down from heaven to see if there is anyone who understands and seeks God
Isa 66:2; ... God looks to the humble contrite person who respects His Word.
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.
We are in the study of the winner believer who respects and lives by God's Word of truth and we are noting the consequences of persistent chronic negative volition toward God's Word.
Because of the continuous daily degeneration and assault from satan's lies and deception in the devil's world against God's Word without continuous daily renovation of our thinking it is impossible to stay on track with God's Word.
This means that if we are not actively learning God's Word of truth on a daily basis we are by default passively rejecting it.
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 unrighteousness and injustice everywhere. Criminals are not prosecuted but instead the innocent are falsely accused, framed and then convicted of alleged criminality Isa 5:20-23;
The inversion of thought is so perverse and pervasive that the criminals can actually make the case that having righteous standards based on divine establishment truth and God's Word is actually unrighteous and unjust.
The demonic deception is so complete that what is good is considered to be bad and what is bad is considered to be good. This is the duplication of the exact same false accusation that satan and the fallen angels make against God.
Their accusation against God is that He is unrighteous and unjust because he has condemned them to the eternal lake of fire. Matt 25:41b;
We see from this that God is permitting humanity to duplicate the same kind of thinking that satan used to incite the angelic rebellion against God.
This becomes the venue for the testing of human volition as testimony for or against God and His Word in the trial of satan's appeal which is why God created humanity. Matt 24:24; NET
God's judicial case against injustice from demonic viewpoint 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 the inversion of their thought.
Since God's Word is immutable these same principles apply to every other nation including the USA at the present time.
Last time we noted the phrase "The nation mourns." in Hosea 4:3; The qal imperfect of "abal" means to mourn the loss of loved ones.
It is a Hebrew idiom that refers to universal lamentation that comes from the loss of loved ones from unrestrained criminality and defeat in warfare.
Lawless people govern the nation. Today in the USA we have lawless government employees in positions of authority who refuse to comply with the divine establishment principles cited in the constitution that they took an oath to defend and protect.
In addition all too often the court system that also swore to protect and defend the constitution instead rules against it and even goes so far as to redefine evil as good and good as evil and even establish sin and evil as "civil law". Rom 1:25-2:11;
Jesus and His disciples faced this same problem. Even though innocent, Jesus and all of the disciples were considered by the lawless civil government in Judea to be criminals to the point where the lawless civil authorities pursued them, imprisoned them, and killed them.
In nations with negative volition to divine establishment people who stand for God's Word of truth inevitably end up hiding and then fleeing to avoid being chased down, incarcerated and killed. 2Tim 3:12-13; 2Cor 4:7-11;
