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)                                                                                                                                                                                           

EMPTY DECEPTION by Earl Sutton

 

The Colossians are an example of believers who were in danger of buying into an empty deception. The Apostle Paul warned that they were being presented with religious philosophies that looked good on the surface, but when examined, they were found to be hallow and empty of truth. “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit” (Col. 2:8).       

          The Colossian Christians were in danger of being carried into captivity by the false philosophy of Gnosticism, so they would become slaves to spiritual darkness. The basic characteristic of this philosophy was it was after the teaching of men, not the word of God. This vain philosophy taught one had to believe in Christ and obey the gospel but added this philosophy that they needed something more than Christ in order to be saved. Paul denied this and taught all that one needs to be saved is Jesus Christ (Rom. 1:16).

         America is also in danger of buying into an empty deception concerning who controls this country. The truth behind the real political power in America is not what it appears to be. Our entire democratic system is not what it appears to be. One of the ruling elite, the Rothschild Family is one of the wealthiest families on earth with assets of at least $500 trillion. They, along with other ruling elite, control the globalist movement pushing a one world government with their front man, George Soros.

         These ruling elite control our central bank in the United States (Federal Reserve) and have control of every bank in the world except Cuba, Iran and North Korea. They control the deep state and have total control and ownership of our mainstream media. They have controlled almost every president for at least one hundred years. President John F. Kennedy was elected by the ruling elite, because his father, Joseph P. Kennedy, was one of them. JFK and brother Bobby learned how deep their tentacles reached and planned to get rid of the Federal Reserve. They both lost their lives as a result of turning on the ruling elite.

          They have an unlimited amount of money and power. They can manipulate any country and its leaders including the USA. They control the top layers of the CIA, FBI, big banks, major corporations, many long-term members of Congress, and high-level judges (including the Supreme Court).

          They are now working overtime to erode our Constitution and destabilize our government for their own corrupt purposes of a one world government. They are trying to divide America using race, gender, religion, social class, and education.

          You might think that they would choose to remain in the shadows running their criminal activities of drug trafficking, gun trafficking, human trafficking and human organ trafficking. Their goal is a plan to eliminate all threats to their survival, which includes closed borders. Their ultimate goal is the one world government, under their control through the United Nations. They are dismantling cultures, borders, and national identity under the guise of social justice by creating a false narrative of racism, colonialization and capitalism to destabilize and corrupt our society. When we don’t accept this, they call us intolerant and other names to shame us into silence.

          The deep state joined with the Muslim Brotherhood and was able to get Obama elected president. During his term, with Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, our military secrets and classified information were leaked to our enemies.

          We, as the Apostle Paul said, are in danger of being carried into captivity by a false system becoming slaves to darkness. Let us ask God’s help to support our President and get us out of this corruption and deception (Ezekiel 22:25).
