“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”
The Revelation of Jesus Christ given through John Chapter 21 verse 27
“and nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed will ever enter it, nor anyone who practices abominations [detestable, morally repugnant things] and lying, but only those [will be admitted] whose names have been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”
REVELATION 21:27 AMP

: extreme disgust and hatred
From the Holy Bible; What God calls an abomination:
16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth(creates) wicked imaginations(plans), feet that be swift in running to mischief(evil), A false witness that speaketh lies[even half-truths], and he that soweth discord(spreads rumors) among brethren.
32 For the froward(devious)(inclined or willing disobedience and opposition) is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.
20 They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the Lord: but such as are upright in their way are his delight.
22 Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.
5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not
1 A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.
10 Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the Lord.
23 Divers weights are an abomination unto the Lord; and a false balance is not good.
*In the past time there was no Standard form of measuring the weight of something, so people would use Stones/Large rocks to tell the weight of something such as; meat, produce, or anything so by weight. Some people following evil business practices would use one stone to weigh something when buying it and then a different stone to weigh what they are selling.
We can imagine that rarely were two stone the exact same weight and all merchants had their own stones, so people were likely being fooled on a regular basis regarding the weight of something they are buying. The Lord teaches us to use the same stone we use to measure how much something is when we buy it, should be the same stone we use when selling it.
The key for us today is not to cheat people in business. We must do what is fair and equal.
“ And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;”
The Word of God is amazing and shows how people can exploit the smallest things to deceive people for their own advantage.
Without the Word of God in this world evil deeds such as this would likely abound without limit.
Thank God for teaching is what is right and what is wrong.
His Word is our compass and if we follow it, we will always be right.
15 He that justifieth the wicked(evil or morally wrong person), and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord.
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
22 Thou shalt not lie(intimately/sexually) with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
17 There shall be no whore(prostitute) of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite(prostitute) of the sons of Israel. 18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore(wages of a woman prostitute), or the price of a dog(wages of a man prostitute), into the house of the Lord thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the Lord thy God.
Marry Divorce then Marry Again to same person
When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. 3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;
4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
Wearing the Garment of the Opposite Sex
5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.
Precious metals of idols worshipers
25 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therin: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.
Keeping the Practices of Nations with False gods
9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire(as a sacrifice), or that useth divination(seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means/fortune telling) , or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch(engages in witchcraft). 11 Or a charmer(person who cast spells), or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer(person who is a medium, spiritist, or consults with the dead). 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.
Creating Graven or Molten Images
14 And the Levites shall speak, and say unto all the men of Israel with a loud voice, 15 Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen.
