“…. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; …” (Galatians 6:7-8 KJV).
A hypocrite/cheater is “ANYBODY” who behaves in a
dishonest way, on any level (financially, emotionally, spiritually, or physically) in order to gain some selfish advantage. “…Lying lips are abomination to the Lord…” (Proverbs 12:22 KJV).
A hypocrite/cheater gains this dishonest advantage by deliberately deceiving, tricking, misleading, being sexual unfaithful, swindling, defrauding, and eluding others. “…Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey …to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain…” (Ezekiel 22:27 KJV).
Hypocrites/cheaters will cheat you out of your material possessions, your emotional health, your spiritual wealth, and your physical well-being if possible. “…he (she) that soweth to his(her) flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption…” (Galatians 6:8 KJV).
This blog will focus on how people are cheated out of their emotional health by hypocrites/cheaters. “…Do not steal. “Do not deceive or cheat one another…” (Leviticus 19:11 NLT).
If someone can cheat you out of your emotional health, then your material, spiritual, and physical goods will follow. Woe to the HYPOCRITE or CHEATER who does this. “..What sorrow awaits you who lie awake at night, thinking up evil plans. You rise at dawn and hurry to carry them out, simply because you have the power to do so. When you want a piece of land, you find a way to seize it. When you want someone’s house, you take it by fraud and violence. You cheat a man of his property, stealing his family’s inheritance. But this is what the Lord says: “I will reward your evil with evil; you won’t be able to pull your neck out of the noose. You will no longer walk around proudly, for it will be a terrible time…” (Micah 2:1-3 NLT).
A hypocrite/cheater can be so good at being phony or cheating and taking advantage of people that some people will never know or won’t ever realize they’ve been tricked or cheated until it’s too late. “…This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come . For men shall be lovers of their own selves, … unholy,… false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,… men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. …. evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived…”(2 Timothy 3:1-13 KJV). “…Ye shall know them by their fruits…” (Matthew 7:16 KJV).
Why do hyopcrites/cheaters get away with this? “…Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily …the HEART of the sons of men is fully set in them… to do evil….” (Ecclesiastes 8:11 KJV).
Hypocrites/cheaters ARE NOT listening to God. “…But my people would not listen to me. They kept doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts. They went backward instead of forward” (Jeremiah 7:24 NLT). “...But the people replied, “Don’t waste your breath. We will continue to live as we want to, stubbornly following our own evil desires…” (JEREMIAH 18:12 NLT).
The hypocrite/cheater, like a false prophet, can become a harmful and misleading attachment. “…Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves…” (Matthew 7:15 KJV). “…Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many….” (Matthew 24:11 NASB).
Others won’t know until they have spent their good, youthful years, given away or linked most of their material possessions to the hypocrite/cheater, or invested much of their livelihood to them, or risked their physical health for them, or lost sight of their spiritual journey and their Creator.
“…Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.” Remember him before the light of the sun, moon, and stars is dim to your old eyes, and rain clouds continually darken your sky. Remember him before your legs—the guards of your house—start to tremble; and before your shoulders—the strong men—stoop. Remember him before your teeth—your few remaining servants—stop grinding; and before your eyes—the women looking through the windows—see dimly. Remember him before the door to life’s opportunities is closed and the sound of work fades. Now you rise at the first chirping of the birds, but then all their sounds will grow faint. Remember him before you become fearful of falling and worry about danger in the streets; before your hair turns white like an almond tree in bloom, and you drag along without energy like a dying grasshopper, and the caperberry no longer inspires sexual desire. Remember him before you near the grave, your everlasting home, when the mourners will weep at your funeral. Yes, remember your Creator now while you are young, before the silver cord of life snaps and the golden bowl is broken. Don’t wait until the water jar is smashed at the spring and the pulley is broken at the well. For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it…” (Ecclesiastes 12:1-7 NLT).
A hpopcrite/cheater slowly, but surely kills, steals and destroys the other person while making themselves an indispensable stronghold (entrenchment, domination, fortified place, etc.“…The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” (John 10:10 KJV).
The hypocrite/cheater is sufficiently benefitted at the other person’s expense. “…They …serve ….their OWN belly…” (Romans 16:18 KJV).
A hypocrite/cheater will break ALL the ethical, moral, spiritual, or unwritten rules of conduct in their relationship with others if it gets them what they want. “..You rise at dawn and hurry to carry them out (cheating plots), simply because you have the power to do so. When you want a piece of land, you find a way to seize it. When you want someone’s house, you take it by fraud and violence. You cheat a man of his property, stealing his family’s inheritance. …” (Micah 2:1-3 NLT).
It matters nothing to hypocrites/cheaters that what they want is obtained through deceit or dishonesty. “…Don’t do as the wicked do, and don’t follow the path of evildoers. Don’t even think about it don’t go that way. Turn away and keep moving. For evil people can’t sleep until they’ve done their evil deed for the day. They can’t rest until they’ve caused someone to stumble. They eat the food of wickedness and drink the wine of violence!” (Proverbs 4:14-17 NLT).
A hypocrite/cheater is commonly linked to infidelity. Infidelity, however, also refers to cheating, betrayal, disloyalty, thieving (stealing), robbing, or unfaithfulness. “…if you fail to keep your word, then you will have sinned against the Lord, and you may be sure that your sin will find you out…” (Numbers 32:23 NLT). “…You have also heard … ‘You must not break your vows; you must carry out the vows you make to the Lord…” (Matthew 5:33 NLT). “… to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin…” (James 4:17 KJV). “….Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, YE HAVE DONE IT TO ME…” (Matthew 25:40 KJV).
A hypocrite/cheater doesn’t cheat ALL the time, but will rely on cheating when necessary to gain or sustain his or her dishonest advantage. After all, they are a HYPOCRITE and CHEATER. “…They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots. Their actions are never good. They make no attempt to turn from evil…” (Psalms 36:4 NLT).
A HYPOCRITE IS FAKE and A CHEATER CHEATS. They are basically phony and they will CHEAT you out of respect, honor, dignity, true love, the truth, the ability to trust, and the innate right to dwell safely or peacefully in God’s world.
A hypocrite/cheater is ALWAYS dishonest. There is NOT a “little” dishonesty; dishonest “IS” dishonest. “…Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much…” (Luke 16:10 KJV).
“…Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments “You shall not steal (cheat, rob),” … and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor…” (Romans 13:8-10 KJV).
“….But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people…” (Ephesians 5:3 KJV).
“…You know the commandments …. ‘you shall not steal (cheat, rob), …you shall not defraud (fake out)…” (Mark 10:19 KJV).
“…The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery …selfish ambition, dissensions …and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God…” (Galatians 5:19-21 KJV).
“…Their actions are never good. …” (Psalms 36:4 NLT). “…Ye shall know them by their fruits…” (Matthew 7:16 KJV).
Hypocrites/cheaters have unique fruit or traits that distinguish them from other people. Identifying a hypocrite/cheater can be a preventive from getting involved with one. “…Ye shall know them by their fruits…” (Matthew 7:16 KJV).
Let's look at some of the traits that are the most damaging and destructive to others:
Hypocrites/cheaters are emotional thieves and robbers
Hypocrites/cheaters are master manipulators.
Hypocrites/cheaters are liars or compulsive liars.
Hypocrites/cheaters are selfish, greedy, and make a practice of exploiting people.
Hypocrites/cheaters are never satisfied.
Hypocrites/cheaters are jealous thinking people are being dishonest like they are.
Hypocrites/cheaters don’t have all the traits mentioned above, if any, or maybe none so obvious, but they are ALL thieves and robbers. “…Their actions are never good. …” (Psalms 36:4 NLT).
Hypocrites/cheaters are thieves and robbers because they secretly and wrongfully steal or rob the emotional property of another person through dishonesty, lies, manipulation, phoniness, seduction, or exploitation. “…They …serve ….their OWN belly…” (Romans 16:18 KJV).
A hypocrite/cheater is a thief, just like the devil, because he or she secretly steals the emotional health of another person. “…The thief (hypocrite/cheater) cometh not, but for to steal (take, rob, fake out, cheat, etc;), and to kill, and to destroy…” (John 10:10 KJV).
A hypocrite/cheater is a robber, just like the devil because he or she threatens to rob the emotional health of another person through deathly conduct and destructive behaviors. “…The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill (the other person’s emotional health), and to destroy (the other person’s spiritual health)…” (John 10:10 KJV).
Hypocrites/cheaters are not always obvious to their victims, but are often blatant to others on the outside looking in. What is a HYPOCRITE/CHEATER?
A HYPOCRITE is FAKE and a CHEATER CHEATS in one way or another. A hypocrite/cheater is “ANYBODY” who behaves in fake or dishonest ways, on any level (financially, emotionally, spiritually, or physically) in order to gain some selfish advantage. “…They …serve ….their OWN belly…” (Romans 16:18 KJV). AND ARE “…like wolves ravening the prey …to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain…” (Ezekiel 22:27 KJV).
A hypocrite/cheater gains his or her dishonest advantage by deliberately and intentionally deceiving, tricking, misleading, being sexual unfaithful, swindling, defrauding, and eluding others. “…Like wolves ravening the prey …to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain…” (Ezekiel 22:27 KJV).
A HYPOCRITE is a FAKE and a CHEATER CHEATS……
