THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR ACTIONS! by Earl Sutton

 

In 1996 a grain ship, “Bright Field,” was heading down the Mississippi River near New Orleans, when it lost control, veered toward the shore and crashed into a riverside shopping mall. The impact demolished parts of the wharf and injured 116 people. According to the Coast Guard investigation, the ship’s owner and crew had failed to repair long-standing engine problems. This is a clear example of not doing what you should do and receiving the consequences of bad decisions.

            The Devil deceived Eve into thinking that there would be no consequences for eating the forbidden fruit (Gen. 3:1-7). God said, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, ye shall not eat of it lest ye die” (v.3) The Devil said, “Ye shall not surely die.” (v.4) Eve dilly-dallied with the temptation and contemplated the possibilities that the Devil had suggested and threw away all restrain and ate the fruit!  Why?  The Devil deceived her into thinking that there would be no consequences for sin.

            The Devil continues to lie to us today and tells our society that a little sin won’t hurt, a little indulgence is not a problem, a little transgression will never hurt anybody! The Devil tells us that we are only human and go ahead and enjoy sin. The Bible says, “The way of the transgressor is hard.” ( Prov. 13:15)

            Our society believes that it can live in disobedience to God’s will by practicing homosexuality and never suffer the consequences. The scriptures teach that there will be consequences for our actions. “Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth unto his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth unto the spirit shall of the spirit reap eternal life.” (Gal. 6:7-8) This basic principle applies to the physical world and spiritual realm as well. The word, “mocked” is a Greek word (mukterizete:) which means to turn one’s nose up at God. The point is that if a person sows to the flesh (homosexuality and sinful living) and turns up his nose at God, he shall go the way of all flesh, -- die and face the judgment of God where there will be consequences. (reap destruction – Gal. 6:8)

The scriptures emphasize the consequences of sin in other verses. Ezekiel said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (Ez. 18:4) Paul said, “The wages of sin is death.” (Rom. 6:23)  Over and over, again and again, the Bible under all circumstances, emphasizes that we reap what we sow and that sin is always followed by consequences.

            There is rebellion in the hearts and in the behavior of many people in our society today. In view of the fact that sin will always have consequences, what can we predict for the future? According to the basic law of sowing and reaping, the answer can best be given in the words of the prophet Hosea, “They sow the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind.” (Hos. 8:7) There is one time of sowing (while alive), and there will be two times of reaping. We reap in this life and also reap beyond this life in the hereafter. Sin brings forth its consequences both here and hereafter.

            People may do things without realizing the consequences of their actions, but one day there is going to be an accounting! (Rev. 21:8)                                                                                                                                                                                           

THE EPITOME OF PURE EVIL by Earl Sutton

 

Rehoboam, son of Solomon and rightful successor to his father’s throne, demonstrated his utter unworthiness and incapacity to reign over his people by his stupid and foolish decision to increase the burden of the people rather than provide relief for them (I Kings 12:1-20). As a result, ten of the twelve tribes rebelled; and Jeroboam became their spokesman and later was crowned their king.

          Jeroboam was the epitome of pure evil and one of the most wicked kings of all times. Twenty-three (23) times, he was said to have caused Israel to sin. The first thing he did in his evil reign was to change the place of worship. The Law of Moses required every male Israelite to go to Jerusalem three times a year, on the occasion of the great feasts (Deut. 12:11). To keep them away from Jerusalem, he made two calves of gold and put one in Bethel and one in Dan.

          The second thing he did in his evil reign was to substitute the house of worship from the Temple to houses of high places to conduct idolatrous rites that he had instituted. The third thing which he did in his evil reign was to change the priesthood and allow his authorized non-priests to serve. The Bible says, “After this thing, Jeroboam returned not from his evil way” (I Kings 13:33). Again and again, we are reminded in the history of the kings of Israel that they followed in the steps of Jeroboam and his purely evil plans and kept adding sin to sin!

          Today, we clearly see the left radical party keep adding sin to sin and are the epitome of pure evil. The globalists and left-wing party working together are attempting to white-wash God and religion from American history. They are using our biased mainstream media, which they own to manufacture a consensus to transition our country from American values to their immoral values and agendas. This includes trying to change our national identity with acts of persecution pointed at our deep-rooted spiritual beliefs.

          We must defend the truth of God’s word and stand up against the evils of abortion, homosexuality, normalizing pedophilia and transgenderism. Planned Parenthood, radical feminists movement (pro-abortion), LGBT, ideology of Islam are eroding our Constitution to destabilize our government, and open borders to destroy national sovereignty.

          Transgenderism is an attempt to overthrow the moral order in our society that exists between male and female. The bottom line is the destruction of gender distinctions which will inevitably dissolve the family. If the pure evil transgender distinction is enacted into law, it will cause the traditional marriage between a man and woman to be obsolete.

          We are in a battle to save this country. The forces of evil (radical left, deep state) are fighting against the forces of good (Christians and anyone who supports moral purity, honesty and freedoms). The time to protect the infringement of our religious freedom is now, because for far too long our religious leaders have given a free pass to evil and evil doing in our society.

          There is a moral difference between the radical left and the conservative right. Those on the left keep adding sin after sin. Those on the right try to follow the moral high road and abide by the principles of God’s word.
