Proverbs 3:33, The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
Son, this word shows us the heart of God toward the wicked and toward the righteous.
Those whose heart is away from God, those who are froward and have an intimacy with envy have a curse pronounced upon them.
The curse of the Lord is a curse of separation.
Those who refuse to flee to the Lord in close communion, those who appear to be close to the Lord yet are far from him will be separated from him forever.
That is the curse of God
Isaiah preached of people who were under the curse of God in:
Isaiah 29:13-16, Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, (This is Christian America today) but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of
men: (learned by repetition without any thought to the meaning) Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous (this is not marvellous in a good sense, it means distinguishing) work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom
of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. Woe unto them that seek tee hi4w! deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: (Shall the potter be considered of no more account than the clay?) for shall the work say of him that made it, He
made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
Jesus spoke of the same wicked people when in Matthew he said:
..... Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
These folk justified not honoring their father and mother because they were spending all that they had on service to the Lord, or so they said!
They say: What you would have gained from me, everything I have that would have been of use to you is a gift to God and has already been given to God.
Therefore I am no longer under any obligation to you, father and mother.
This is the tradition that came from a wicked heart.
A heart that is far from God, a heart the is under the curse of God.
For a heart that is far from God, in spite of a mouth that proclaims closeness, is under the curse of God.
What a strong word is this word curse.
For it means separation of that which is an abomination, a disgusting thing, a detestable thing.
It indicates intense loathing and passionate fury
It is from the word execrate.
This word is a word that describes that which by every means must be separated from.
This curse is expressed in the Book of the Revelation concerning the church of the Laodiceans when God described this church in a way that he could not stand them to be in his presence.
Revelation 3:15,16, I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
This is the curse of the Lord, to be spit out as a disgusting, a despised thing, a thing loathed, an abomination to the Lord.
The reason that they were lukewarm was because the were froward, pretending to be close to the Lord but there heart was far from h1m.
A hot outward appearance diluted by a cold heart makes for a lukewarm cursed thing.
A thing to be spewed out of the mouth of God.
Yes son, The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
Psalm 37:22, For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
Thank God that separation takes place, for without separation of that which is an abomination to the Lord there would be no heaven.
The earth to inherit would be of no value.
But God blesses the habitation of the just.
