WHAT GOD CALLS WICKEDNESS, ABOMINATION AND CONFUSION

By SOUGHTOUT EMEKA MATTHEW

 

INTRODUCTION:

By the law of first mentioned, abomination and confusion means perverting the law of nature and that of God. So, confusion is not just a state of mind; but it is a practice.

Abomination is equally an abnormal practice(s) and also, it is an abuse of divine purpose(s).

Coming to wickedness, it is abnormal practices. By the law of first mentioned, it is a product of evil imaginations of the thoughts of men’s heart.

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5

LISTS OF  WICKED, ABOMINABLE AND CONFUSED PRACTICES

 To mention but few of these practices God called wickedness, abomination and confusion are:

  1. HOMOSEXUALITY:

This is called sodomy or having sexual relationship with same sex. God called it abomination.

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22

  1. BESTIALITY:

This is having sex with animals. God forbids this kind of acts. He calls it confusion.

“Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.” Leviticus 18:23

Man should not seek for sexual satisfaction from animals. This is because; sex is not meant to be practice between human and animals.

Going by the law of reproduction, all creatures should produce after its kind. You can imagine what human can give birth to by conceiving for an animal, vice versa.

What our beautiful and well-thought creator made should mate and reproduce after their kind.

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.” Genesis 1:11-12, 21 & 24

“Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.” Genesis 6:20

“They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.” Genesis 7:14

“And the vulture, and the kite after his kind; Every raven after his kind; And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind. …. the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind.” Leviticus 11:14-16, 19, 22 & 29

  1. INCEST:

It is confusion to have sexual relationship with someone you share blood relationship with. In fact, this kind of practice attracts a death sentence on the practitioners.

God hates this kind of practice. He doesn’t want His people to be involved in it.

“And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.” Leviticus 20:12

  1. ADULTERY and FORNICATION:

Adultery is sexual relationship between a married person and another married person or unmarried person, while fornication is sexual relationship between an unmarried individual with another unmarried opposite sex or with a married person. Both are termed as great wickedness.

“And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.” Genesis 39:7-10

OTHER KIND OF WICKEDNESS

“Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.” Leviticus 18:17

  1. PROSTITUTION:

This is having sex intercourse for money.

  1. IDOLATRY and ENTICEMENT TO WORSHIP PERVERSION:

It is worship perversion. It break the first commandment which is “You shall not have any other God beside me”.

“If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.” Deuteronomy 13:6-11

If God is not the author of confusion, He is not equally the author of wickedness and abomination.

“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” 1 Corinthians 14:33

“As saith the proverb of the ancients, Wickedness proceedeth from the wicked…” 1 Samuel 24:13

WHAT GOD WOULD THAT THOSE WHO PRACTICES ACTS OF WICKEDNESS, ABOMINATION AND CONFUSION SHOULD DO

  1. REPENT:

Repentance is about having godly orientation about your sinful practices and changing to a new and right way of practicing them.

The scripture below reveal what God need now and why sinners need to repent from their sins and turn unto Him:

“The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.” Acts 17:30-31

2. LOVE THE RIGHT KIND OF LIVE AND HATE THE WRONG KIND OF LIFE:

If you hate wickedness and loves righteousness, God will mark you out for distinction.

It is written:

“Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” Psalm 45:7

3. DROP YOUR OLD LIFE AND LIVE THE RIGHT KIND OF LIFE:

Your life cannot change by living same old life. You must have to drop it and live a right kind of life.

It is written:

“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” Proverbs 28:13

“let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:7

4. CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS:

Man is a creature of thoughts. Before the fall of man because of sin, man’s thoughts had been in line with God’s. It was after then that we possessed thoughts contrary to God’s thoughts.

The scripture confirmed:

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.” Isaiah 55:8

Your thoughts determine your way of life. Your way of life cannot change until your thoughts are changed. God wants your way of life changed and this is only made possible by the changing your thoughts.

To have your thoughts change, this is achievable by reasoning with the word of God or by meditating on the word of God.

“Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.” Romans 12:2

Won’t you let God change you with a new way of thinking?
