|Isaiah 65:2 |
2 I have spread out my hands all day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts;1
1 I have spread out my hands all day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts; To be reunited with God, to be in his presence, your mind has to be destroyed by the Spirit of God because the carnal mind is enmity against God. Rom 8:6-7. Our thoughts are an abomination to God. Pro 15:26. All men have been in rebellion against God since Adam fell in the garden. Until your mind is destroyed and renewed back into the image of God in holiness and righteousness, you are in rebellion.
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man [forsake] his thoughts:...
For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:7-9. (All men who still sin are slaves to sin. John 8:34. Slaves to sin are wicked. Sin is wickedness. Sin is iniquity. Sin is lawlessness. All men who still sin are wicked.)
The LORD knows the thoughts of man, and that they are vanity. Psalm 94:11.
