The wicked will be stubble and burnt up.
Malachi 4:1 For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
Nahum 1:10-11: 10 For while they be folded together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry. 11 There is one come out of you that imagined evil against the LORD, a wicked counselor. 12 Thus says the LORD; though they are quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through.
Isaiah 47:13-15 13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save you from these things that shall come upon you.
14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.
15 Thus shall they be unto you with whom you have labored, even your merchants, from your youth: they shall wander everyone to his quarter; none shall save you.
Jeremiah 13:22-25 22 And if you say in your heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of your iniquity are your skirts discovered, and your heels made bare.
23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then may you also do good, that are accustomed to doing evil.
24 Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passes away by the wind of the wilderness.
25 This is your lot, the portion of your measures from me, says the LORD; because you have forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.
Believers MUST deal with these scriptures. Don’t make the fatal mistake of thinking these are just ‘Old Testament’ scriptures and therefore no good today. Let’s not forget Jesus himself validated them. (Luke 16:31)
Some churches say ‘Well, we don’t get our doctrine strictly from the Bible; we have the authority to write and make our own doctrines apart from the Bible. No you do not! God’s word alone is valid; not some man’s.
Again it comes down to the big question: who are you going to believe and trust that his word is accurate and authoritative, God or man?
