Integrity requires loyalty and courage.

How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


5:14-15 Do what is good and run from evil–that you may live! Then the LORD God Almighty will truly be your helper, just as you have claimed he is. Hate evil and love what is good; remodel your courts into true halls of justice. Perhaps even yet the LORD God Almighty will have mercy on his people who remain.

:23-24 Away with your hymns of praise! They are only noise to my ears. I will not listen to your music, no matter how lovely it is. Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice, a river of righteous living that will never run dry.


13:9-11 But when these things begin to happen, watch out! You will be handed over to the courts and beaten in the synagogues. You will be accused before governors and kings of being my followers. This will be your opportunity to tell them about me. And the Good News must first be preached to every nation. But when you are arrested and stand trial, don’t worry about what to say in your defense. Just say what God tells you to. Then it is not you who will be speaking, but the Holy Spirit.

:31-37 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain forever. However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. And since you don’t know when they will happen, stay alert and keep watch. The coming of the Son of Man can be compared with that of a man who left home to go on a trip. He gave each of his employees instructions about the work they were to do, and he told the gatekeeper to watch for his return. So keep a sharp lookout! For you do not know when the homeowner will return–at evening, midnight, early dawn, or late daybreak. Don’t let him find you sleeping when he arrives without warning. What I say to you I say to everyone: Watch for his return! Jesus Words

OT Flash Points

I hate your show and pretense!

NT Flash Points

These “holy” structures will be completely demolished
When you are accused, that is your opportunity to tell about Me
Don’t worry about what to say
Just listen to God
He will tell you what to say
Note: Stark contrast to betrayal – resting, listening, speaking


Woe to:
1. the betrayer of Jesus
2. the tempter of His children
The nature of religion will always crucify the Savior
