Daniel 7:24 (Amplified Bible)

B. GOD will wipe them by means of their own wickedness
"and will wipe them out by means of their own wickedness;"
The LORD have already answered our prayers in the Person of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, those who accepted the Lordship and Savior abilities of the LORD JESUS CHRIST are saved in this world and in the next world (New Heavens and New Earth) to come, but those who rejected their flattering lips and tongues have already been cut off. Take a look at how the unbeliever speaks, all nonsense, all-self, none of GOD. It's how GOD cuts off them from us. We, believers, when we talk are already understood by another believer, and yet to be understood by unbelievers, that's why if you are a believer and you have a company of unbelievers, share the WORD to them, if they are not saved until this time, it's an amazement to me, because in the first place, how come you "understand" each other's communicaiton.
Psalms 12:2-3 (Amplified Bible)
12:2 To his neighbor each one speaks words without use or worth or truth; with flattering lips and double heart [deceitfully] they speak.
12:3 May the Lord cut off all flattering lips and the tongues that speak proud boasting,
Proverbs 14:32 (Amplified Bible)
14:32 The wicked is overthrown through his wrongdoing and calamity, but the [consistently] righteous has hope and confidence even in death.

18:24 But if the righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? None of his righteous deeds which he has done shall be remembered. In his trespass that he has trespassed and in his sin that he has sinned, in them shall he die.
