The Prayers of the Wicked

pray

A  great deal has been written by the worldly concerning their “prayers to God” or “their prayers.”

Many worldly pieces which claim to be about prayers to the Almighty are REALLY attacks on such prayer and those who do it.

Some world pieces on prayer claim to be “how-to” guides by the worldly.

Still other worldly pieces use prayer–a holy communication between God and those who love and fear Him–as a way to promote some action or event of the world.

BUT, does it even do any good for those who stand apart from God’s grace and mercy to pray to Him–particularly when such men get scared or anxious?

The answer is found in God’s Word and the answer is VERY clear: NO.

NO, God does not even HEAR the prayer of the wicked.

NO, God does not even enjoy the prayers of the wicked.

NO, God considers such attempts to contact Him as ABOMINATIONS.

“He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.”
–Proverbs 28:9

“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me”
–Psalm 66:18

Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.”
–John 9:31

“For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?”
–Job 27:8-9

IN FACT, God’s Word is VERY CLEAR that there is a HUGE gulf between the prayers of the wicked and the prayers of those who fear the LORD.

“The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.”
–Proverbs 15:8

IN FACT, God will NOT even acknowledge those public displays if they are done by a non-believer.

“When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.”
–Jeremiah 14:12

One tip-off that the prayers offered to God are falling upon deaf ears is when the one doing the praying is asking for some WORLDLY blessing. This happens a LOT at political events where those present are looking for worldly power to solve their problems–but just to be on the safe side (or for the sake of appearances)–they offer up prayers for their cause.

To all those readers who are saying to themselves “I’m not wicked!  I try to do good all of the time!”  

God’s Word ALSO repeatedly refers to the wicked as “foolish.”

So basically: IF one is not really interested in following God’s commandments, God is not really interested in hearing your prayers.

DOES the reader ever wonder why his prayers to God go unanswered?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS: What Happens to the Earth?

arrow up arrow down

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
–1CORINTHIANS 2:14

Time once again to revisit the topic of the so-called “Biblical contradictions.”

And this time, rather than read about the so-called “contradictions in the Bible,” the topic was brought up in a conversation!

The topic?

What happens to the earth? Does it get destroyed or does it last forever?

After answering the question(s) and later thinking, “Gee, that might make an interesting article,” it was discovered that this very question was already covered almost TWO YEARS AGO at ETPR.

After re-reading what was written earlier, it was decided that what was written then on the topic was fairly comprehensive and correct.

SO, it was further decided to reprint it.

From Biblical Contradictions?

3- Ecclesiastes 1:4 vs. 2PETER 3:10

… the earth abideth for ever.
–Ecclesiastes 1:4

“and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
–2PETER 3:10

RECONCILIATION: The earth will abide forever–though the old earth will pass away after the return of Jesus Christ and God will create a new earth.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”
–Revelation 21:1,5

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
–Isaiah 65:17

“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
–2PETER 3:13

“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”
–Revelation 20:11

“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. and they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.”
–Isaiah 66:22-24

“Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.”
–Isaiah 55:6

SO, for the short answer (given to that inquiring mind on the day his questions were raised):

The earth we are living in presently shall be TOTALLY DESTROYED (by God, in God’s time, NOT by man in man’s timing).  BUT a brand NEW EARTH will be created in its place.  God will dwell on this newly-created earth with those men who were born again spiritually and eternally saved.

NOT just the earth will be re-fashioned: the heavens above the earth will also be remade.  Which makes sense.  The present earth has known sin.  The present heavens ALSO knew sin (when Lucifer rebelled – Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 14).

SO, God will create a heaven and earth that are perfect in every way and have NOT known transgression.

God’s Word is PERFECTLY CLEAR on the subject.

The earth WILL abide forever.

“One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.”
–Ecclesiastes 1:4

“Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”
–Psalm 104:5

HOWEVER, the earth WILL undergo some changes.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”
–Revelation 21:1,5

MORE: Biblical Contradictions?

DOES the reader believe the words of the Bible because they are the Words of God?

OR, does the reader believe that the Bible is “just a book of stories?”

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
-—1 Corinthians 1:18-19

Three Questions for the End Times Reader

Two interesting questions

THREE questions for the reader to ponder when he might have a spare moment or two.

Some info which might possibly help the reader arrive at an answer is ALSO provided.

1 – IS IT A WISE THING TO DO TO ALWAYS BE SHARING SOMETHING WITH THOSE ONE KNOWS?

“Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.”
–Proverbs 17:28

2- IS IT STILL MONEY IF YOU CANNOT SPEND IT?

MONEY” is something that is decided to have value that men can exchange for goods or services.

MONEY is whatever is decided by a people to have VALUE. There have been a great many different things considered to have value (and therefore, used as money) by different groups of men at different times and places.

Some men have decided that pieces of paper have value.

Some men have decided that colorful shells have value.

Some men have decided that pretty flowers have value.

Some men have decided that lists of numbers held by officials in buildings called “banks” have value.

Still others have decided that rare or scarce minerals or stones have value (diamonds, gold, silver, rubies, etc.).

BUT, since man decided these things have value, man can ALSO decide at some point, they have little value.

This is one HUGE drawback to earthly treasure.

“Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.”
–James 5:2-3

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
–Matthew 6:19-21

Money ONLY has value BECAUSE it can be spent (exchanged for needed goods and services).

IF money cannot be spent, it is not very desirable money.

Money that has many restrictions on its use is not really money.  It is like the SCRIPT issued as payment to miners by mining companies.

Such currency is more a method of control than a unit of value.

During the end times, Satan will use money (buying and selling) to control the people of the earth.

During the end times, Satan will use money to persuade those who dwell on the earth to worship Satan and his beasts.

THIS is where money is headed during the end times.

3- AFTER A THOUSAND YEARS OF PERFECT RULE BY JESUS CHRIST AND A THOUSAND YEARS OF EARTHLY PERFECTION WITHOUT THE TEMPTATIONS OFFERED BY SATAN, MAN IS EXPOSED TO THE DEVIL’S WILES FOR A SHORT SEASON AND, ONCE MORE, MANY FALL PREY TO SATAN’S WHISPERS. WHAT DOES THE DEVIL USE TO TEMPT THOSE USED TO EARTHLY PERFECTION?

“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”
–Revelation 20:1-3,7-9

What Does Satan Use to Tempt Man?

Did the reader spend any time presently thinking of a possible answer to one or more of the above questions?

?

“Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.”
–Proverbs 17:28

2- IS IT STILL MONEY IF YOU CANNOT SPEND IT?

MONEY” is something that is decided to have value that men can exchange for goods or services.

–James 5:2-3

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
–Matthew 6:19-21

Money ONLY has value BECAUSE it can be spent (exchanged for needed goods and services).

IF money cannot be spent, it is not very desirable money.

Money that has many restrictions on its use is not really money.  It is like the SCRIPT issued as payment to miners by mining companies.

Such currency is more a method of control than a unit of value.

During the end times, Satan will use money (buying and selling) to control the people of the earth.

During the end times, Satan will use money to persuade those who dwell on the earth to worship Satan and his beasts.

THIS is where money is headed during the end times.

3- AFTER A THOUSAND YEARS OF PERFECT RULE BY JESUS CHRIST AND A THOUSAND YEARS OF EARTHLY PERFECTION WITHOUT THE TEMPTATIONS OFFERED BY SATAN, MAN IS EXPOSED TO THE DEVIL’S WILES FOR A SHORT SEASON AND, ONCE MORE, MANY FALL PREY TO SATAN’S WHISPERS. WHAT DOES THE DEVIL USE TO TEMPT THOSE USED TO EARTHLY PERFECTION?

“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”
–Revelation 20:1-3,7-9

What Does Satan Use to Tempt Man?

DID the reader spend any time presently thinking of a possible answer to one or more of the above questions?

WHY or WHY NOT?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
