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)                                                                                                                                                                                           

PLAGUE OF PEDOPHILIA by Earl Sutton

 

Pedophilia is considered a sexual deviation, a condition in which a person’s sexual gratification depends on engaging in sexual behavior with children that is atypical and extreme.

            An estimated 20% of American children have been sexually molested, making pedophilia a common sexual perversion. Across the globe, traffickers buy and sell children, exploiting them for sex and forced labor.

            Statistics from ICMEC (International Center for Missing and Exploited Children) estimate that 8 million children are reported missing each year around the world. According to the latest U.S. Department of Justice research, 800,000 – 1,000,000 children will go missing in the United States alone. This is a rate of over 2,000 missing children each day or one child in every 92 seconds in the USA. This, clearly, is an epidemic of staggering proportions, and we can no longer shrink or pretend that this ugly problem does not exist!

            There is mounting evidence of organized pedophilia and child-trafficking networks throughout the world that implicate high-level government leaders, media executives, bankers, corporate officials, law enforcement, judges, church leaders and charitable institutions.

            The big question is how do we bring these criminals to justice if the criminals themselves control our information and judicial systems. For the sake of our children and their children, we need to accept the fact that where there is smoke, and lots of it, there is fire. We have a moral responsibility to take the time to discern the scope of the problem we are being confronted with.

            To the majority of the public, this kind of information is so horrendous that it is beyond the capacity of many people to believe this could be true. There is certainly reason to believe that many of the       8 million children who disappear each year are falling victim to a coordinated pedophile network.

            At the present time, our society is controlled by a satanic ruling class (globalists). They have the motives, the power and the means to traffic children around the globe, under the guises of “upstanding citizens,” “peace keepers,” and “Good Samaritans,” with the necessary influence to suppress the truth through corruption of our justice system and news media.

            As history has begun to prove with Facebook, information and awareness is on our side. Our government, under new moral leadership, can oust these satanic predators from the institutional veils they hide behind.  So, on behalf of the world’s children and parents alike, we ask God’s help in stopping this terrible crime through our new president. (Washington politicians, both Democrat and Republican, are reportedly involved in this pedophilia epidemic. The FBI said after viewing contents of Anthony Weiner’s laptop, “There is enough evidence for the entire government to be brought down.”)

            This problem of pedophilia is a plague in our modern society, and those who have been victimized as children certainly understand the trauma that accompanies this sin. Jesus said, “And if your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out . . ..If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off” (Matt. 5:29-30).  Jesus is trying to teach us to see the severity of sin! He wants us to see that giving up part of this life is better than losing our eternal life. The application for us in today’s society is that we must stop accepting the excuses of perpetrators of crimes and take steps to confront and dismantle it! “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evilis for good men and women to do nothing” (Edmund Burke).
