God's Whistleblower

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

From one man He made every nation of men,
that they should inhabit the whole earth;
and He determined their appointed times
and the boundaries of their lands.
God intended that they would seek Him
and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him,
though He is not far from each one of us.
‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’
As some of your own poets have said,
‘We are His offspring.’
Acts 17:26-28 (BSB)

Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers.
How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness?
How can light live with darkness?
What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil?
How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
2 Corinthians 6:14-15 (NLT)

Look how far you have fallen!
Turn back to me and do the works you did at first.
If you don’t repent,
I will come and remove your lampstand
from its place among the churches.
Apocalypse 2:5 (NLT)

“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)
