The evil of sin.

“All who, without commission from God, dare to execute private revenge, and who, from ambition, covetousness, or resentment, wage war and desolate kingdoms, must one day answer for it. But if God, instead of sending an earthquake, a pestilence, or a famine, be pleased to authorize and command any people to avenge his cause, such a commission surely is just and right. The Israelites could show such a commission, though no persons now can do so. Their wars were begun and carried on expressly by Divine direction, and they were enabled to conquer by miracles. Unless it can be proved that the wicked Canaanites did not deserve their doom, objectors only prove their dislike to God, and their love to his enemies. Man makes light of the evil of sin, but God abhors it. This explains the terrible executions of the nations which had filled the measure of their sins.” Matthew Henry 

Numbers 33:51 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan,52 then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their molded images, and demolish all their thigh places;53 you shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land and dwell in it, for I have given you the land to possess.54 And you shall divide the land by lot as an inheritance among your families; to the larger you shall give a larger inheritance, and to the smaller you shall give a smaller inheritance; there everyone’s inheritance shall be whatever falls to him by lot. You shall inherit according to the tribes of your fathers.55 But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those whom you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.

Not a “young maiden.”

Isaiah 7:14 can only mean a virgin. If it was merely referring to a “young maiden,” as some maintain, it would not have been a miraculous “sign” from God. Every day, thousands of young maidens conceive; only once has it happened to a virgin. This messianic prophecy was fulfilled in Luke 1:31–35; Matt. 1:18–23.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

Skin color.

“When the families scattered from Babel, they each took different combinations of genes with them. In such small populations, trivial differences (such as skin color) can arise quickly in only a few generations. Even evolutionists admit this is true. But different shades of skin and slightly different genetic traits are trivial and do not constitute different ‘races.’” Carl Kerby, Answers in Genesis 

Acts 17:26 And He has made from one tblood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and tthe boundaries of their dwellings

The verdict is “guilty.”

Incorporating the Law into the gospel presentation does many things. It primarily brings the knowledge of sin (see Rom. 7:7), showing the sinner that he is a criminal and that God is his Judge. The Law (in the hand of the Holy Spirit) stops his mouth of justification and leaves him guilty before God (see Rom. 3:19,20). It reveals that he deserves nothing but judgment for his crimes. Like a faithful prosecutor, the Law of God points its accusing finger, and so the sinner’s stirred conscience bears witness and likewise points its finger at the criminal (see Rom. 2:15). The verdict is “guilty,” and the condemnation is just. I do my best to put him in the courtroom on the Day of Judgment, with the hope that he will understand the mercy that God offers him in Christ.

Jeremiah 50:7 All who found them have devoured them; And their adversaries said, ‘We have not offended, Because they have sinned against the Lord, the habitation of justice, The Lord, tthe hope of their fathers.’

Against our age.

“The man whose little sermon is ‘repent’ sets himself against his age, and will for the time being be battered mercilessly by the age whose moral tone he challenges. There is but one end for such a man—‘off with his head! You had better not try to preach repentance until you have pledged your head to heaven.” Joseph Parker 

Matthew 14:10 So he sent and had John beheaded in prison.

God lavishes his goodness…

It is good to point out, when witnessing, that God lavishes His goodness on the ungodly. He gives them eyes to see His creation, ears to enjoy good music, and taste buds to enjoy the wonderful array of food that His has created. He has given them life itself, yet they live in rebellion to His will and use His holy name as a cuss word to express disgust. This reveals the sin of ingratitude, and therefore a failure to obey the First Commandment.

Hosea 2:8 For she did not know That I gave her grain, new wine, and oil, And multiplied her silver and gold— Which they prepared for Baal.9 “Therefore I will return and take away My grain in its time And My new wine in its season, And will take back My wool and My linen, Given to cover her nakedness.

I’ll fight to the very end!

“While women weep, as they do now, I’ll fight; while children go hungry as they do now, I’ll fight; while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I’ll fight; while there is a drunkard left, while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight; I’ll fight to the very end!” William Booth
