For Wednesday evening services, the Lord has lead me to do a Bible study for practical Bible verses in Luke. Please come back to these Bible lessons in order to review them and learn them. Whenever we have learned the meaning of Bible verses and think about them throughout each day, we will be in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Not only that, but when we are in a situation in our daily lives and are tempted to sin, we can think back to what we have learned from the Bible and say to ourselves, "The Bible says to not do what I am tempted to say, think, do, and/or desire right now, so I am going to refuse to give in to this temptation." This is what Romans 12:2 means, and it says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." This is also the pattern that Jesus used when the devil tempted Him to sin in Matthew 4:1-11.
My copy and paste feature doesn't keep the words that are supposed to be italicized, so instead of me doing it manually, refer to a Bible to see which words are italicized.
But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
(A Christian would follow the previous verse, but someone who isn't really a Christian (even if they trust Jesus' death on the cross and His shed blood to erase their sins) would be stubborn and refuse to stop sinning on purpose. As a result, God's anger continues to build until He no longer gives them chances to become Christians.
Romans 1:24-32 further explains this, "Wherefore God also gave them up (These people had refused to turn from their sins and receive Christ as their Savior so many times, that God lost His patience and quit giving them opportunities to receive salvation. A similar verse is Proverbs 29:1, “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.” Someone can refuse or put off their decision to become a Christian a certain number of times, and their heart can become too hard to receive salvation. Each time they say no to Christ, their heart becomes harder.) to uncleanness (thinking about and loving dirty and perverted things, and thinking something perverted about regular, everyday things) through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up (See note at the beginning of this paragraph (Romans 1:24).) unto vile affections (women having sex with women and men having sex with men): for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly (Clearly after reading this, practicing homosexuality is sinful.), and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge (They refused to listen to God.), God gave them over to a reprobate mind (This is referring to people who have said no to the Holy Spirit urging them to repent of their ways and get saved a certain number of times, and as a result, their hearts have become too hard. This means they are unable to become a Christian.), to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness (not obeying the commands in the Bible), fornication (having sex before marriage), wickedness (causing or likely to cause harm or trouble), covetousness (wanting something that someone else has), maliciousness (causing harm to someone for no reason); full of envy (frequently carrying a grudge due to having a strong desire for something someone else has), murder, debate (arguing), deceit (misleading someone to get them to believe what is false or getting them not to believe what is true), malignity (having extreme hatred toward someone); whisperers (those who secretly tell lies in order to hurt people’s reputations), Backbiters (those who say evil things about others who aren’t around to hear at the time), haters of God (those who dislike, boldly challenge, or disagree with God over and over in their minds), despiteful (those who hate their enemies so much that it leads to violence against them), proud (people who think they are excellent in many ways. For example, they may think that their mind, body, possessions, accomplishments, job, country, and church are much better than others.), boasters (those who brag about how excellent they, their possessions, or accomplishments are in order to impress others), inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding (those who don't agree with the truths in the Bible), covenantbreakers (people who break their contracts or agreements), without natural affection (those who don’t love others), implacable (those who hate others and never stop their hatred), unmerciful (those who cruelly punish others and never spares or forgives them): Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them (If you enjoy when people sin in such ways, you are just as guilty as them.)."
