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)                                                                                                                                                                                           

POWER WICKED VS POWER GOD by Earl Sutton

 

The same dysfunctional draft dodgers that spat on our troops in the 60’s and 70’s are today’s left-wing radicals that teaches and influences our children to carry on their dysfunctional agenda. Approximately 60% of our university professors in the USA are controlled by the left-wing, radical party. We have been dumbed down by our public education system and college universities controlled by radical leftists.

          We have been indoctrinated by the corporate-owned, mass media controlled by the elite globalists pushing a one world government. We have been socially engineered by Hollywood, pop culture music, and TV programming to accept trash as artistic entertainment.

           We have been drugged, brainwashed and robbed by Big Pharmaceutical and the American healthcare racket with the goal to keep us sick and on their unhealthy products. We have been tricked into thinking the USA is a democracy, not knowing it is a corporation  exercising control for corrupt and selfish purposes for its elite members of Congress.

           It is truly a government under oligarchy control. The Bible confirms this control, “The whole world is lying in the POWER (doo-nam-is, force) OF THE WICKED” (I John 5:19). Certainly, the whole world lieth in the evil one which means that all those who are opposed to God and work against Him are under the dominion of the Devil.

         How is our nation under the power of Satan? It means that Satan has brought corruption and deterioration to the world by his agents. Our society is literally deteriorating and will eventually be destroyed.

         It means that Satan has affected the governments and societies of the world. He has corrupted the hearts and minds, laws and rules of man by his agents. Therefore, Christians must respect and be loyal to God’s word and reject and stand against the evils of abortion, homosexuality, LGBT activism, ideology of Islam (which has the goal of destroying our religious freedom and Constitution). Christians must not love any organization or party more than they love God’s word.

           It means that Satan has injected and infected society with lust, evil, pride, and rebellion against God. The world today is full of sinful people -- people who are evil and full of lust and pride. The world today is also full of people who are in rebellion against God, such as LGBT, globalists, left-wing radicals, liberals, who are truly Satan’s agents.

          The word, “world,” (kos’-mos) means the present condition of human affairs. It is not the material universe in which we live, but the race of wicked men and Satan’s agents about us. These, because they have abandoned themselves to a life of sin, have as their goal to destroy all moral purity in the Bible.

          The children of God will not walk in darkness but in the light of God’s word. This is in sharp contrast to the walk of the children of the evil one with his agents who are of the world. They walk in darkness, and their general attitude is one of selfish pleasure with the end results of death and doom!

          By knowing that the world is in opposition to God, that it lies under the power of the wicked one, we know we must separate ourselves from the worldliness of the world and live for God. “If sinners (Devil’s agents) entice thee, consent thou not.” (Prov. 1:10)
