God's Whistleblower

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,
but instead expose them.
Ephesians 5:11 (ESV)

These men are like irrational animals, creatures of instinct,
born to be captured and destroyed.
They blaspheme in matters they do not understand,
and like such creatures, they too will be destroyed.
2 Peter 2:12 (BSB)

“The prophets are prophesying lies in My name,” replied the LORD.
“I did not send them or appoint them or speak to them.
They are prophesying to you a false vision, a worthless divination,
the futility and delusion of their own minds."
Jeremiah 14:14 (BSB)

With deceit in his heart he devises evil;
he continually sows discord.
Therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly;
in an instant he will be shattered beyond recovery.
Proverbs 6:14-15 (BSB)

“Woe to the rebellious children,” says the LORD,
“Who take counsel, but not of Me,
And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit,
That they may add sin to sin."
Isaiah 30:1 (NKJV)

And I heard the altar reply:
“Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are Your judgments.”
Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun,
and it was given power to scorch the people with fire.
And the people were scorched by intense heat,
and they cursed the name of God,
who had authority over these plagues;
yet they did not repent and give Him glory.
Apocalypse 16:7-9 (BSB)

There is no darkness or deep shadow
where the workers of iniquity can hide.
Job 34:22 (BSB)
What sorrow awaits those who
try to hide their plans from the LORD,
who do their evil deeds in the dark!
“The LORD can’t see us,” they say.
“He doesn’t know what’s going on!”
Isaiah 29:15 (NLT)
