Six Things the Lord Hates
Posted September 22, 2005
Proverbs 6:16-19 states, "These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: v.16
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, v.17
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, v.18
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." v.19
You notice in studying these verses of scripture, that the Lord hates even the person involved in these actions.
Isaiah 11:1-4 says, "And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: v.1
In verse 1 Isaiah refers to Jesus as the Branch.
And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; v.2
Verse 2 he tells us that the seven spirits of God (the Holy Spirit) are upon Jesus.
And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: v.3
Isaiah said here in verse 3 that he should not judge by the sight of his eyes nor reprove by the hearing of his ears.
But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. v.4
And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins." v.5
Acts 5:1-11 says, "But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, v.1
And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet. v.2
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? v.3
Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. v.4
And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. v.5
And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. v.6
And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. v.7
And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. v.8
Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. v.9
Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. v.10
And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things." v.11
In Acts 5, the Apostle Jesus, in the heart of the Apostle Peter, demonstrates his hate against a tongue lying (one of the seven things that God hates) to the Holy Ghost.
