Pride (Review)


Pride *The Lord hates…haughty eyes (proverbs 6:16-17)

*God is opposed to the proud… (James 4:6)

*everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord…he will not go unpunished (Proverbs 16:5)

*…the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world (1John 2:16)

*pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before stumbling (Proverbs 16:18)

Uzziah (2Chronicles 26)

*when he became strong his heart was so proud that he acted corruptly

*he was unfaithful to God *he entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of the incense

*when the priests opposed him because only the priest are consecrated to burn the incense…Uzziah became enraged. *leprosy broke out on his forehead….the Lord had smitten him *was a leper to the day of his death

*he was cut off from the house of the Lord

*Jotham his son was over the king’s house judging the people of Israel.

Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 32)

*gave no return for the benefit he received because his heart was proud

*therefore wrath came on him and on Judah and Jerusalem

*Hezekiah humbled the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem

*so the wrath of the Lord did not come on them in the days of Hezekiah
