Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap destruction...
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
God will now bring judgment to His body that a remnant might be purged, purified and refined. The end of the age is at hand.
For Yahweh of hosts will have a day of reckoning against everyone who is proud and lofty, and against everyone who is lifted up, that he may be abased.
Behold, the Lord, the GOD of hosts, will lop off the boughs with a terrible crash; Those also who are tall in stature will be cut down, and those who are lofty will be abased.
"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless,
how will it be made salty again? It is good for nothing anymore,
except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”
"Therefore, salt is good; but if even salt has become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned? It is useless either for the soil or for the manure pile; it is thrown out.
He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
