The Bible was written for the past, the present and the future, and when discussing “NO GOOD MEN” it will be seen that the Leaders in false religion are the main persons under discussion. Although they “blind” their congregation members, it is quite apparent that the members are satisfied, as they are being taught what they want to hear. Remember, the people who appear to be so kind and loving and also honouring Jehovah God are likened to “white-washed walls” because they are false in their religious beliefs. It is imperative that all religions must be measured against what the Bible teaches.




2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 & 6

5 KEEP TESTING WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH, KEEP PROVING WHAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE. OR DO YOU NOT RECOGNISE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN UNION WITH YOU? UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to persevere in doing Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability! They must ENSURE that they are in Jehovah God’s ONE and ONLY TRUE FAITH!)

All remarks in Italics are also pertinent to the other subjects that have been or will be discussed, and also relevant to the Scripture that is being given now and those given later.

November 8th, 2010 | Author: Douglas | Edit

This post on NO GOOD MEN is filled to the brim with the people that were considered to be Jehovah God’s people and their “shepherds” that were supposed to be the people that taught their “sheep” Jehovah God’s laws and desires.

It must be especially noted how Jehovah God is going to totally annihilate the false religious leaders, and how many of them there were and still are today.

Even if a person desires to be taught false teachings, that person might be persuaded to change and be saved, but as for the false religious leaders, they will be shown no sympathy.

The three groups mostly under discussion are the many false religious leaders, the billions of people that desire to hear the false doctrines and the very few that desire to become acceptable to Jehovah God.

Let us have a look at what I meant about the false religious leaders I mentioned earlier:

Matthew 6:1 -8, & 16 states: 1 “Take good care not to practice YOUR righteousness in front of men in order to be observed by them; otherwise YOU will have no reward with YOUR Father who is in the heavens. 2 Hence when you go making gifts of mercy, do not blow a trumpet ahead of you, just as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be glorified by men. Truly I say to YOU, They are having their reward in full. 3 But you, when making gifts of mercy, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, 4 that your gifts of mercy may be in secret; then your Father who is looking on in secret will repay you. 5 “Also, when YOU pray, YOU must not be as the hypocrites; because they like to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the broad ways to be visible to men. Truly I say to YOU, They are having their reward in full. 6 You, however, when you pray, go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you. 7 But when praying, do not say the same things over and over again, just as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words. 8 So, do not make yourselves like them, for God YOUR Father knows what things YOU are needing before ever YOU ask him. AND 16 “When YOU are fasting, stop becoming sad-faced like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Truly I say to YOU, They are having their reward in full.

Matthew 23:25 – 38 states: 25 “Woe to YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because YOU cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of plunder and immoderateness. 26 Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup and of the dish, that the outside of it also may become clean. 27 “Woe to YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because YOU resemble whitewashed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleanness. 28 In that way YOU also, outwardly indeed, appear righteous to men, but inside YOU are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. 29 “Woe to YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because YOU build the graves of the prophets and decorate the memorial tombs of the righteous ones, 30 and YOU say, ‘If we were in the days of our forefathers, we would not be sharers with them in the blood of the prophets.’ 31 Therefore YOU are bearing witness against yourselves that YOU are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Well, then, fill up the measure of YOUR forefathers. 33 “Serpents, offspring of vipers, how are YOU to flee from the judgment of Ge•hen′na? 34 For this reason, here I am sending forth to YOU prophets and wise men and public instructors. Some of them YOU will kill and impale, and some of them YOU will scourge in YOUR synagogues and persecute from city to city; 35 that there may come upon YOU all the righteous blood spilled on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zech•a•ri′ah son of Bar•a•chi′ah, whom YOU murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Truly I say to YOU, All these things will come upon this generation. 37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her,—how often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings! But YOU people did not want it. 38 Look! YOUR house is abandoned to YOU. 39 For I say to YOU, YOU will by no means see me from henceforth until YOU say, ‘Blessed is he that comes in Jehovah’s name!’”

Matthew 23: 27 speaks the following words: “YOU resemble whitewashed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleanness.” These words mean that due to their false teachings the religious leaders in the past have caused billions of people to eternally lose their lives, and also many with “innocent blood” also to have lost their lives temporarily. They are still doing so today and will do so until the advent of Armageddon.

The “uncleanness” spoken about covers quite a number of aspects. There are for instance the marrying of same-sex partners, the acceptance of “gay” preachers and members, the advocating of the equality of males and females, the acceptance of female preachers, etc. as well as the preaching of all the false doctrines mentioned in my post, Healthy or Controversial Interaction: 001 – How do I feel about Christianity.

The Bible describes “No Good Men” in detail, and it is an eye-opener to realise what humans are capable of doing. The Bible is not here busy with human weaknesses, but with the blatant disregard of Biblically acceptable ways of living their lives. Just by taking note of the condition that our world is in today, we then see that the majority of humans by far, are not even slightly interested in the caring for our literal earth, or even their fellow humans.

It should be interesting to note in the Scriptures below how many refer to the so-called shepherds that were supposed to be doing Jehovah God’s work, but were lining their pockets out of sheer greed and lust for power, and also all the doctrines that they introduced and are still doing today. False religion has the world in the condition it is today.

Can a person imagine what a totally heathen nation must think of “God’s People” when they take cognisance of how the “Christian Countries” look, act and behave morally and physically.

All humans are born in sin! The Bible states that humans have a tendency to seek fleshly desires above spiritual concerns. The main objective is to practise the art of denouncing the desires of the flesh, which is by no means an easy task.

YOUR main measurement will be, to examine the Bible, and the Scriptures below, and see how YOU fare as to what “NO-GOOD-MEN” do!

Let us have a look at a few Scriptures from the Bible:

Judges 19:22 – 24

22 While they were making their hearts feel good, look! the men of the city, mere good-for-nothing men, surrounded the house, shoving one another against the door; and they kept saying to the old man, the owner of the house: “Bring out the man that came into your house, that we may have intercourse with him. 23 At that the owner of the house went on out to them and said to them: “No, my brothers, do not do anything wrong, please, since this man has come into my house. Do not commit this disgraceful folly. 24 Here are my virgin daughter and his concubine. Let me bring them out, please, and YOU rape them and do to them what is good in YOUR eyes. But to this man YOU must not do this disgraceful, foolish thing.” (Here again we see that the normal people, members of the church, did what they “saw” was to be “good”. If they had been taught the Word of Jehovah God PROPERLY, they would have been too afraid to consider such “disgust” as “good”. Just as with our world of today, when all evil is openly practised, the absence of the “preachers” or even the silence of their preaching in the churches on the following Sundays, is quite deafening! Quite frequently topics such as the glory surrounding mediums and many other anti-Biblical articles are emphasised in family magazines. That humans evolved from apes is accepted as fact. The Bible states that the earth was a waste mass covered with water, and according to most religions, their calculations all agree that if Adam was alive today that he would be between 6000 and 7000 years old. I am in total agreement. As I stated, often it is seen in family magazines that in earlier times men dragged women around by their long, dirty and unkempt hair. Surely the “preachers” should have taken the perpetrators of these devilish articles to task! From all this we see that the “preachers” failed to teach their “members” properly, and it suited the “members” as they felt free to think that men raping men “was good”!)

2 Samuel 22:5

For deadly breaking waves encircled me; There were flash floods of good-for-nothing [men] that kept terrifying me. (In the Bible the word “sea” is often used to indicate evil people, and thus from the above Scripture it can be accepted that the “waves” were quite a number of evil people, and the “flash floods” an extremely large crowd of unruly men constituting great danger. Today it is quite general to see on television the masses that are violently rioting! This also occurs worldwide! The FINAL occurrence of these destructive masses will be with the advent of Armageddon when Jehovah God has the evil masses destroy each other, while He protects His own children. “ “ARMAGEDDON” for billions, “SALVATION” for millions!)

2 Chronicles 13:1,7

1 In the eighteenth year of King Jer·o·bo’am it was that A·bi’jah began to reign over Judah. 7. And idle men, good- for-nothing fellows, kept collecting themselves together by him. Finally they proved superior to Re.ho.bo’am the son of Sol’o·mon, when Re·ho·bo’am himself happened to be young and fainthearted, and he did not hold his own against them.

Psalm 5:5

No boasters may take their stand in front of your eyes. You do hate all those practicing what is hurtful; (It is a fact: Jehovah God does also HATE! And what He hates we should also hate!)

Psalm 10:4

The wicked one according to his superciliousness makes no search; All his ideas are: “There is no God“. (If a person should be asked if he believed that there is a God, his expression would most probably portray anger, disgust, disbelief or shock, OR a combination of all the expressions, but when you observe how he lives his life, is he telling the same story?)

Proverbs 1:28

At that time they will keep calling me, but I shall not answer; they will keep looking for me, but they will not find me, (We as humans do not want to be first-aid kits, so why should Jehovah God be prepared to serve that purpose? Billions of people quickly call on “God” when tragedy is about to strike or actually occurs!)

Proverbs 1:31 & 32

31 So they will eat from the fruitage of their way, and they will be glutted with their own counsels. 32. For the renegading of the inexperienced ones is what will kill them, and the easygoingness of the stupid is what will destroy them. (The first group in Verse 31 appear to me to be those that “believe” what they themselves want to “believe”, or what they have falsely been taught. The group in Verse 32 appear to me to be those that just “accept” Jesus, and/or just “believe”!)

Proverbs 9:7-9

7 He that is correcting the ridiculer is taking to himself dishonour, and he that is giving a reproof to someone wicked – a defect in him. 8 Do not reprove a ridiculer, that he may not hate you. Give a reproof to a wise person and he will love you. 9 Give to a wise person and he will become still wiser. Impart knowledge to someone righteous and he will increase in learning. (These Scriptures seem to indicate that a person has the right to judge, but this is not so! The way people react is an indication of what they think or intend to do. When the discussion of the Bible is concerned, then the words “you may not judge” are so easily used. When the Bible is not being discussed and I approach a man and just ask him to assist me, and he intends to strike me for no reason at all, then I can consider him to be an abusive and evil man. It will not then be considered that I am “judging” him. We have been “given” the faculties of discernment and intuition and thus “sense” that persons are either “willing hearers” or “unwilling hearers”, and can thus adjust accordingly, without malice, resentment or contempt.)



Proverbs 12:15

The way of the foolish one is right in his own eyes, but the one listening to counsel is wise.

Proverbs 14:12

There exists a way that is upright before a man, but the ways of death are the end of it afterward.

Proverbs 14:17

He that is quick to anger will commit foolishness, but the man of thinking abilities is hated.

Proverbs 14:18

The inexperienced ones will certainly take possession of foolishness, but the shrewd ones will bear knowledge as a headdress.

Proverbs 16:25

There exists a way that is upright before a man, but the ways of death are the end of it afterward.

Proverbs 17:24

Wisdom is before the face of the understanding one, but the eyes of the stupid one are at the extremity of the earth.

Proverbs 18:1

One isolating himself will seek [his own] selfish longing; against all practical wisdom he will break forth.

Proverbs 18:5

The showing of partiality to the wicked one is not good, nor the turning aside of the righteous one in judgement. (I cannot pass this Scripture, as it is so true, without spelling out the destruction that the “partiality of the wicked one” causes. Constitutional and democratic rights demand that the murderer has “ALL” his rights protected, irrespective of the cost to the lives of others as well as the financial costs. The “murdered” do not exist anymore, so neither do “their” rights! Old age, cancer and many other diseases and afflictions are mostly attempted to be avoided, but often occur however hard the precautions were attempted. Medical assistance, over and above the accepted norm, is non-existent. AIDS, alcoholism, drug addiction and other diseases, which normally are considered to be self-inflicted, receive billions of dollars, in assisting to lengthen their lives and alleviate their pain. Jehovah God knows what He is stating in the Bible. The “filthy” rich, powerful and influential persons need the self-inflicted actions to further their ambitions, wealth and power. The BIG “money-spinners” are false religion, drugs, weapons, prostitution, the legal defence of perpetrators of illegal or evil deeds, the drugs sold under the “guise” of medicine, etc.! Can you believe that a medical doctor, that has taken an oath to view life as sacred and preserve it at all costs, can prescribe a medicine to cure a cancer but that eventually induces a heart attack?)

Proverbs 18:13

When anyone is replying to a matter before he hears [it], that is foolishness on his part and a humiliation.

Proverbs 18:21

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and he that is loving it will eat its fruitage.

Proverbs 19:25

The ridiculer you should strike, that the inexperienced one may become shrewd; and there should be a reproving of the understanding one, that he may discern knowledge. (I believe the people that decide on constitutional and democratic rights have totally misunderstood this Scripture!)

Proverbs 19:29

Judgments have been firmly established for ridiculers, and strokes for the back of stupid ones.

Proverbs 20:4

Because of winter the lazy one will not plough; he will be begging in reaping time, but there will be nothing.

Proverbs 20:20

As for anyone calling down evil upon his father and his mother, his lamp will be extinguished at the approach of darkness.

Proverbs 21:2

Every way of a man is upright in his own eyes, but Jehovah is making an estimate of hearts.

Proverbs 21:9

Better is it to dwell upon a corner of a roof than with a contentious wife, although in a house in common.

Proverbs 21:11

By the laying of a fine on the ridiculer the inexperienced becomes wise; and by one’s giving insight to a wise person he gets knowledge.

Proverbs 21:19

Better is it to dwell in a wilderness land than with a contentious wife along with vexation.

Proverbs 22:10

Drive away the ridiculer, that contention may go out and that legal contest and dishonour may cease.

Proverbs 24:9

The loose conduct of foolishness is sin, and a ridiculer is something detestable to mankind.

Proverbs 25:24

Better is it to dwell upon a corner of a roof than with a contentious wife, although in a house in common.

Proverbs 26:5

Answer someone stupid according to his foolishness, that he may not become someone wise in his own eyes.

Proverbs 27:12

The shrewd one that has seen the calamity has concealed himself; the inexperienced that have passed along have suffered the penalty.

Proverbs 27:15 & 16

15 A leaking roof that drives one away in the day of a steady rain and a contentious wife are comparable. 16 Anyone sheltering her has sheltered the wind, and oil is what his right hand encounters.

Proverbs 29:21

If one is pampering one’s servant from youth on, in his later life he will even become a thankless one.

Proverbs 30:23

23 under a hated woman when she is taken possession of as a wife, and a maidservant when she dispossesses her mistress.

Ecclesiastes 4:5

The stupid one is folding his hands and is eating his own flesh.

Ecclesiastes 7:5

Better is it to hear the rebuke of someone wise than to be the man hearing the song of the stupid ones.

Ecclesiastes 7:9

Do not hurry yourself in your spirit to become offended, for the taking of offence is what rests in the bosom of the stupid ones.

Ecclesiastes 7:29

See! This only I have found, that the [true] God made mankind upright, but they themselves have sought out many plans.” (One of the main reasons that I firmly believe that Jehovah God does not physically intervene in this present world that we live in. Humans cause ALL their troubles ALL on their own!)

Ecclesiastes 8:9

All this I have seen, and there was an applying of my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, [during] the time that man has dominated man to his injury.

Isaiah 5:13

Therefore my people will have to go into exile for lack of knowledge; and their glory will be famished men, and their crowd will be parched with thirst.

Isaiah 5:20

Woe to those who are saying that good is bad and bad is good, those who are putting darkness for light and light for darkness, those who are putting bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (In these times it has become frequent that people tend to do what the Bible here warns about. “God made me this or that way” is what is often said by “gays” and other people that live against accepted Bible norms, and many billions seem to agree with them. I would terminate my membership to any church that married “gays”, etc.)

Isaiah 5:21

Woe to those wise in their own eyes and discreet even in front of their own faces!

Isaiah 6:9

And he went on to say: “Go, and you must say to this people, ‘Hear again and again, O men, but do not understand; and see again and again, but do not get any knowledge.’ (There are people that will not or do not want to accept accurate Bible knowledge, irrespective how many times they hear it.)

Isaiah 6:10

Make the heart of this people unreceptive, and make their very ears unresponsive, and paste their very eyes together, that they may not see with their eyes and with their ears they may not hear, and that their own heart may not understand and that they may not actually turn back and get healing for themselves.” (Jehovah God could always read every person’s mind, and since Jesus returned to Heaven, he was given that gift too. So, there are people that will not respond to what the Bible states and are basically never going to be acceptable enough to Jehovah God.)

Isaiah 9:16

And those who are leading this people on prove to be the ones causing [them] to wander; and those of them who are being led on, the ones who are being confused. (It is so sad that false religious leaders lead so many billions to eternal destruction, even though most of them do not want to abide by Jehovah God’s desires. There is the possibility that a few might change if they heard the truth, that is why Jehovah God is delaying Armageddon, but even many of those are having eternal life taken away from them by the false preachers.)

Isaiah 9:17

That is why Jehovah will not rejoice even over their young men, and upon their fatherless boys and upon their widows he will have no mercy; because all of them are apostates and evildoers and every mouth is speaking senselessness. In view of all this his anger has not turned back, but his hand is stretched out still.

Isaiah 9:19

In the fury of Jehovah of armies the land has been set afire, and the people will become as food for the fire. No one will show compassion even on his brother. (Here a hell-fire is not being advocated as fire in the Bible mostly indicates eternal destruction.)

Isaiah 10:1 & 2

1 Woe to those who are enacting harmful regulations and those who, constantly writing, have written out sheer trouble, 2 in order to push away the lowly ones from a legal case and to wrest away justice from the afflicted ones of my people, for the widows to become their spoil, and that they may plunder even the fatherless boys!

Isaiah 10:33

Look! The [true] Lord, Jehovah of armies, is lopping off boughs with a terrible crash; and those tall in growth are being cut down, and the high ones themselves become low. (It is important to remember that certain words or phrases are not to be taken literally. Here trees are indicative of people, “boughs” are descendants or children, “tall” trees are people in high positions and “high” trees are those in overall authority.)

Isaiah 11:4

And with righteousness he must judge the lowly ones, and with uprightness he must give reproof in behalf of the meek ones of the earth. And he must strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the spirit of his lips he will put the wicked one to death.

Isaiah 19:2

“And I will goad Egyptians against Egyptians, and they will certainly war each one against his brother, and each one against his companion, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.

Isaiah 26:14

They are dead; they will not live. Impotent in death, they will not rise up. Therefore you have turned your attention that you might annihilate them and destroy all mention of them.

Isaiah 29:13

And Jehovah says: “For the reason that this people have come near with their mouth, and they have glorified me merely with their lips, and they have removed their heart itself far away from me, and their fear toward me becomes men’s commandment that is being taught, (Who is it that is “teaching commandments of men” if it is not the false religious leaders? Also, to say “ I am a Christian” means “lip talk” if the faith is without works!)

Isaiah 29:21

21 those bringing a man into sin by [his] word, and those who lay bait even for the one reproving in the gate, and those who push aside the righteous one with empty arguments. (The fact that I have this website is not being considered lightly by me. The fact that I do it for free does not absolve me of the responsibility of giving TRUE Bible facts and interpretations. If I have an ulterior motive that “tickles” my ears, then I am going to be definitely destroyed without the slightest mercy being given. I must pray for guidance so as to ensure that I do not write what “I” wish! This Scripture is very applicable to me as “empty arguments” may not occur.)

Isaiah 30:9

For it is a rebellious people, untruthful sons, sons who have been unwilling to hear the law of Jehovah;

Isaiah 30:10

10 who have said to the ones seeing, ‘YOU must not see,’ and to the ones having visions, ‘YOU must not envision for us any straightforward things. Speak to us smooth things; envision deceptive things. (There are people that want to hear the deceptive interpretations!)

Isaiah 30:11

Turn aside from the way; deviate from the path. Cause the Holy One of Israel to cease just on account of us.” (There are people that want to hear the deceptive interpretations!)

Isaiah 30:20

And Jehovah will certainly give YOU people bread in the form of distress and water in the form of  oppression; yet your Grand Instructor will no longer hide himself, and your eyes must become [eyes] seeing your Grand Instructor.

Isaiah 41:22

“Produce and tell to us the things that are going to happen. The first things-what they were – do tell, that we may apply our heart and know the future of them. Or cause us to hear even the things that are coming. (There are also those that desire to have accurate knowledge.)

Isaiah 41:24

Look! YOU are something non-existent, and YOUR achievement is nothing. A detestable thing is anyone that chooses YOU.

Isaiah 44:5

This one will say: “I belong to Jehovah.” And that one will call [himself] by the name of Jacob, and another will write upon his hand: “Belonging to Jehovah.” And by the name of Israel one will betitle [himself].’ (Here we see that many will actually believe that they are doing Jehovah God’s will, but due to their own desires they are not.)

Isaiah 51:7

“Listen to me, YOU the ones knowing righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law. Do not be afraid of the reproach of mortal men, and do not be struck with terror just because of their abusive words. (Jehovah God knows that He does not physically intervene in our world of today and that many of His true children will die, be killed or murdered, suffer all kinds of abusive treatment, etc., but He knows that eventually anything that they suffer here will be more than worthwhile for them eventually if they persevere.)

Isaiah 54:1

“Cry out joyfully, you barren woman that did not give birth! Become cheerful with a joyful outcry and cry shrilly, you that had no childbirth pains, for the sons of the desolated one are more numerous than the sons of the woman with a husbandly owner,” Jehovah has said. (Here Jehovah God is suggesting that people should rather avoid having children due to the fact that Satan the Devil is so dangerous. Not only can the children suffer or be misled and suffer eternal death eventually, but the parents might be subjected to the desire to divide their loyalty between their Creator and their children. This will place an extreme burden on the parents.)

Isaiah 57:20

“But the wicked are like the sea that is being tossed, when it is unable to calm down, the waters of which keep tossing up seaweed and mire. (Here the wicked are again likened to the sea. They have the vague desire to want to please their Creator if and when time allows, and when there is not a conflict of interests. This makes for them to go one step towards their Creator and then one or two steps away on a continuous basis. Also, when there is a conflict of interests, especially financial interests, then the “seaweed and mire” are conjured up. By example: “We have to bend the rules here, or the firm will go bankrupt eventually, and so many will then become unemployed. We do not want that do we?” etc.)

Isaiah 57:21

There is no peace,” my God has said, “for the wicked ones.” (When a fairly decent person just tells a little “white” lie, which I have unequivocally stated on my website as equivalent to a blatant and evil lie, then their conscience does not allow them to feel happy with themselves at all. That is why people that do not truly and properly live according to Jehovah God’s desires will have no peace, peace of mind, that is!)

Isaiah 63:18

For a little while your holy people had possession. Our own adversaries have stamped down your sanctuary. (Only for a “little while” during Biblical times did the religious leaders live according to Jehovah God’s commandments, and since then, until now, they have vastly deviated.)

Isaiah 65:11

“But YOU men are those leaving Jehovah, those forgetting my holy mountain, those setting in order a table for the god of Good Luck and those filling up mixed wine for the god of Destiny. (Gambling or hoping to gain anything not earned by means of luck, as well as the belief in FATALISM are here denounced by the Bible.)

Isaiah 66:16

For as fire Jehovah himself will for a fact take up the controversy, yes, with his sword, against all flesh; and the slain of Jehovah will certainly become many. (Billions of us humans now living are here being spoken of.)

Isaiah 66:3

“The one slaughtering the bull is as one striking down a man. The one sacrificing the sheep is as one breaking the neck of a dog. The one offering up a gift – the blood of a pig! The one presenting a memorial of frankincense is as one saying a blessing with uncanny words. They are also the ones that have chosen their own ways, and in their disgusting things their very soul has taken a delight.

Isaiah 66:4

I myself, in turn, shall choose ways of ill-treating them; and the things frightful to them I shall bring upon them; for the reason that I called, but there was no one answering; I spoke, but there were none that listened; and they kept on doing what was bad in my eyes, and the thing in which I took no delight they chose.” (This Scripture sure sounds frightening, but in our world of today, could be easily misinterpreted. If a man’s whole family is brutally murdered today it might not be considered by him as being near as bad as him losing the financial empire he built up. Materialism often far outweighs human love and compassion, and Jehovah God knows that. He also knows that human life in general has no real significance to billions of people, not taking their own lives into consideration though.)

Jeremiah 2:26

“As with the shame of a thief when he is found out, so those of the house of Israel have felt shame, they, their kings, their princes and their priests and their prophets. . .

Jeremiah 2:26-27

They are saying to a tree, ‘You are my father,’ and to a stone, ‘You yourself brought me to birth.’ But to me they have turned the back of the neck and not the face. And in the time of their calamity they will say, ‘Do rise up and save us! . . . (If you ask most people if they know of idols or objects that are designed to obtain or attract human reverence then they will most probably not be able to think of any. Do they not then see all the physical objects that adorn the premises and insides of their places of religion, OR DON’T  THEY WANT TO!)

Jeremiah 3:21

On the beaten paths there has been heard a sound, the weeping, the entreaties of the sons of Israel. For they have twisted their way; they have forgotten Jehovah their God. . .

Jeremiah 5:31

The prophets themselves actually prophesy in falsehood; and as for the priests, they go subduing according to their powers. And my own people have loved [it] that way; and what will YOU men do in the finale of it?” . . . (Jehovah God is NOT lying here as He CANNOT LIE! So, when He says that there are false religious leaders and people that WANT to hear their lies, then He is speaking the truth.

Jeremiah 6:13 – 15

13 “For from the least one of them even to the greatest one of them, every one is making for himself  unjust gain; and from the prophet even to the priest, each one is acting falsely. . . 14 And they try to heal the breakdown of my people lightly, saying, ‘There is peace! There is peace!’ when there is no peace . . . 15 Did they feel shame because it was something detestable that they had done? For one thing, they positively do not feel any shame; for another thing, they have not come to know even how to feel humiliated. Therefore they will fall among those who are falling; in the time that I must hold an accounting with them they will stumble,” Jehovah has said.

Jeremiah 8:10 – 12

8 Therefore I shall give their wives to other men, their fields to those taking possession; for, from the least one even to the greatest one, each one is making unjust gain; from the prophet even to the priest, each one is acting falsely . . . 11 And they try to heal the breakdown of the daughter of my people lightly, saying: “There is peace!” when there is no peace. . . 12 Did they feel shame because they had done even what was detestable? For one thing, they positively could not feel ashamed; for another thing, they did not know even how to feel humiliated.

Jeremiah 12:1 & 2

You are righteous, O Jehovah, when I make my complaint to you, indeed when I speak even about matters of judgment with you. Why is it that the way of wicked ones is what has succeeded, that all those who are committing treachery are the unworried ones? 2 You have planted them; they have also taken root. They keep going ahead; they have also produced fruit. You are near in their mouth, but far away from their kidneys . . .

Jeremiah 23:2

Jeremiah 23:16 – 19

16 This is what Jehovah of armies has said: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are prophesying to YOU people. They are making YOU become vain. The vision of their own heart is what they speak — not from the mouth of Jehovah. . . 17 They are saying again and again to those who are disrespectful of me, ‘Jehovah has spoken: “Peace is what YOU people will come to have.”’ And [to] every one walking in the stubbornness of his heart they have said, ‘No calamity will come upon YOU people. . . 18 For who has stood in the intimate group of Jehovah that he might see and hear his word? Who has given attention to his word that he might hear it?  19 Look! The windstorm of Jehovah, rage itself, will certainly go forth, even a whirling tempest. Upon the head of the wicked ones it will whirl itself . . .

Jeremiah 26:8  & 9

8 So it came about that when Jeremiah had completed speaking all that Jehovah had commanded [him] to speak to all the people, then the priests and the prophets and all the people laid hold of him, saying: “You will positively die . . . 9 Why is it that you have prophesied in the name of Jehovah, saying, ‘Like that in Shi´loh is how this house will become, and this very city will be devastated so as to be without an inhabitant’?” And all the people kept congregating themselves about Jeremiah in the house of Jehovah. . .

Outright slanderers have proved to be in you, for the purpose of shedding blood; and on the mountains they have eaten in you. Loose conduct they have carried on in the midst of you.

Ezekiel 26:16 – 18

16 And down from their thrones all the chieftains of the sea will certainly come and remove their sleeveless coats, and they will strip off their own embroidered garments.

And the islands that are in the sea must be disturbed owing to your going out.”’ (Again must be mentioned that the word “sea” is indicative of all the wicked people and the “islands” indicative of people that are trying to do the will of Jehovah God.)

Ezekiel 26:21

‘Sudden terrors are what I shall make you, and you will not be; and you will be sought for, but you will no more be found to time indefinite,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.” (Here our Creator states that they “will no more be found to time indefinite”, in other words they will not be in Heaven, not on earth nor in Hell. They will just not exist anymore, but will be particles of dust scattered throughout the world, and possibly becoming “mere green grass”.)

Habakkuk 2:19

Ephesians 4:14

14 in order that we should no longer be babes, tossed about as by waves and carried hither and thither by every wind of teaching by means of the trickery of men, by means of cunning in contriving error.

2 Thessalonians 3:12 – 14

12 To such persons we give the order and exhortation in [the] Lord Jesus Christ that by working with quietness they should eat food they themselves earn. 13.

16 All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work

2 Timothy 4:2 – 4

2 preach the word, be at it urgently in favourable season, in troublesome season, reprove, reprimand, exhort, with all long-suffering and [art of] teaching. 3. For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories.

Titus 1:9 – 11

9 holding firmly to the faithful word as respects his [art of] teaching, that he may be able both to exhort by the teaching that is healthful and to reprove those who contradict. 10.

It is necessary to shut the mouths of these, as these very men keep on subverting entire households by teaching things they ought not for the sake of dishonest gain.

4 For it is impossible as regards those who have once for all been enlightened, and who have tasted the heavenly free gift, and who have become partakers of holy spirit, 5 and who tasted the fine word of God and powers of the coming system of things, 6 but who have fallen away, to revive them again to repentance, because they impale the Son of God afresh for themselves and expose him to public shame. 7. For example, the ground that drinks in the rain which often comes upon it, and that then brings forth vegetation suitable to those for whom it is also cultivated, receives in return a blessing from God.

Hebrews 7:26

For such a high priest as this was suitable for us, loyal, guileless, undefiled, separated from the sinners, and become higher than the heavens.

6 for whom Jehovah loves he disciplines; in fact, he scourges every one whom he receives as a son.”

Hebrews 12:8 – 11

 8 But if YOU are without the discipline of which all have become partakers, YOU are really illegitimate children, and not sons. 9. Furthermore, we used to have fathers who were of our flesh to discipline us, and we used to give them respect. Shall we not much more subject ourselves to the Father of our spiritual life and live? 10. For they for a few days used to discipline us according to what seemed good to them, but he does so for our profit that we may partake of his holiness. 11. True, no discipline seems for the present to be joyous, but grievous; yet afterward to those who have been trained by it it yields peaceable fruit, namely, righteousness.

Hebrews 12:15

carefully watching that no one may be deprived of the undeserved kindness of God; that no poisonous root may spring up and cause trouble and that many may not be defiled by it;

James 1:5 & 6

5 So, if any one of YOU is lacking in wisdom, let him keep on asking God, for he gives generously to all and without reproaching; and it will be given him. 6. But let him keep on asking in faith, not doubting at all, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven by the wind and blown about.

James 3:5 & 6

5 So, too, the tongue is a little member and yet makes great brags. Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire! 6. Well, the tongue is a fire. The tongue is constituted a world of unrighteousness among our members, for it spots up all the body and sets the wheel of natural life aflame and it is set aflame by Ge·hen´na.

James 3:8 – 10

8 But the tongue, not one of mankind can get it tamed. An unruly injurious thing, it is full of death-dealing poison. 9. With it we bless Jehovah, even [the] Father, and yet with it we curse men who have come into existence “in the likeness of God.” 10. Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing. It is not proper, my brothers, for these things to go on occurring this way.

James 3:17

But the wisdom from above is first of all chaste, then peaceable, reasonable, ready to obey, full of mercy and good fruits, not making partial distinctions, not hypocritical.

James 4:1 – 3

1 From what source are there wars and from what source are there fights among YOU? Are they not from this source, namely, from YOUR cravings for sensual pleasure that carry on a conflict in YOUR members? 2. YOU desire, and yet YOU do not have. YOU go on murdering and coveting, and yet YOU are not able to obtain. YOU go on fighting and waging war. YOU do not have because of YOUR not asking. 3. YOU do ask, and yet YOU do not receive, because YOU are asking for a wrong purpose, that YOU may expend [it] upon YOUR cravings for sensual pleasure.

James 5:14 – 16

14 Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15. And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him. 16. Therefore openly confess YOUR sins to one another and pray for one another, that YOU may get healed. A righteous man’s supplication, when it is at work, has much force.

2 Peter 1:9

For if these things are not present in anyone, he is blind, shutting his eyes [to the light], and has become forgetful of his cleansing from his sins of long ago.

2 Peter 2:19

While they are promising them freedom, they themselves are existing as slaves of corruption. For whoever is overcome by another is enslaved by this one.

2 Peter 3:4 & 5

4 and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.” 5. For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice, that there were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God;

2 Peter 3:8 & 9

8 However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9. Jehovah is not slow respecting His promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.

2 Peter 3:15 & 16

15 Furthermore, consider the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul according to the wisdom given him also wrote YOU, 16 speaking about these things as he does also in all [his] letters. In them, however, are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unsteady are twisting, as [they do] also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.

1 John 1:8

If we make the statement: “We have no sin,” we are misleading ourselves and the truth is not in us.

1 John 1:10

If we make the statement: “We have not sinned,” we are making him a liar, and his word is not in us.

1 John 2:4

He that says: “I have come to know him,” and yet is not observing his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in this [person].

1 John 2:15 – 17

15 Do not be loving either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; 16 because everything in the world—the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the showy display of one’s means of life—does not originate with the Father, but originates with the world. 17. Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but he that does the will of God remains forever. 18. Young children, it is the last hour, and, just as YOU have heard that antichrist is coming, even now there have come to be many antichrists; from which fact we gain the knowledge that it is the last hour.

1 John 4:20

If anyone makes the statement: “I love God,” and yet is hating his brother, he is a liar. For he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot be loving God, whom he has not seen.

Jude 4

My reason is that certain men have slipped in who have long ago been appointed by the Scriptures to this judgment, ungodly men, turning the undeserved kindness of our God into an excuse for loose conduct and proving false to our only Owner and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Jude 7

So too Sod´om and Go·mor´rah and the cities about them, after they in the same manner as the foregoing ones had committed fornication excessively and gone out after flesh for unnatural use, are placed before [us] as a [warning] example by undergoing the judicial punishment of everlasting fire.

Revelation 2:2

‘I know your deeds, and your labour and endurance, and that you cannot bear bad men, and that you put those to the test who say they are apostles, but they are not, and you found them liars.

Revelation 2:23

And her children I will kill with deadly plague, so that all the congregations will know that I am he who searches the kidneys and hearts, and I will give to YOU individually according to YOUR deeds.

Revelation 9:4

And they were told to harm no vegetation of the earth nor any green thing nor any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

Revelation 9:20 & 21

20 But the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, so that they should not worship the demons and the idols of gold and silver and copper and stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 and they did not repent of their murders nor of their spiritistic practices nor of their fornication nor of their thefts.

Revelation 14:12 & 13

12 Here is where it means endurance for the holy ones, those who observe the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” 13. And I heard a voice out of heaven say: “Write: Happy are the dead who die in union with [the] Lord from this time onward. Yes, says the spirit, let them rest from their labours, for the things they did go right with them.” (The people that repented from their sinful ways and did Jehovah God’s will are here being spoken of.)

Revelation 17:5 & 6

5 And upon her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the harlots and of the disgusting things of the earth.” 6. And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the holy ones and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. Well, on catching sight of her I wondered with great wonderment.

Revelation 17:8

The wild beast that you saw was, but is not, and yet is about to ascend out of the abyss, and it is to go off into destruction. And when they see how the wild beast was, but is not, and yet will be present, those who dwell on the earth will wonder admiringly, but their names have not been written upon the scroll of life from the founding of the world.

Revelation 19:19 & 20

19 And I saw the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage the war with the one seated on the horse and with his army 20. And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false prophet that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beast and those who render worship to its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulphur.
