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)                                                                                                                                                                                           

AMERICA, WAKE UP! by Earl Sutton

 

We are only one election away from open borders, Socialism, gun confiscation, total full-term murder of babies, Sharia Law and a Godless nation. The party of the left has adopted as their agenda everything that God condemns, they affirm. Everything that God punishes, they exalt. This includes lies, deceit, killing babies, sexual perversions, and anti-American values.

          The Bible says that the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all unrighteousness including those who hinder the truth and work unrighteousness (Rom.1:18-31). The Gentiles knew the truth, for God had made it known to them; but they did not glorify Him as God and their foolish hearts became dark. Just like the party of the left, they became vain in their imaginations. Their reasoning power was used to rationalize their actions, and their thinking became senseless and void of direction. They rationalized that they were wise, but they became fools. The smarter they thought they were, the dumber they became.

          Instead of worshipping God and giving Him the honor due, they chose to worship as they pleased. The left now supports the Satanic Temple and a statue of a goat-headed, winged creature called Baphomet. These worshippers see Lucifer as their independence and turning away from the true God of the Bible as their enlightenment.

          One of their rituals is spirit cooking. They terrorize a child and extract its blood. They believe this blood (with the adrenaline) provides energies for themselves.

          These worshippers of Satan are determined to bring in a one world government and destroy true Christianity. The bottom line is that God gave the Gentiles up and did not seek to restrain them. Just like the party of the left, they left their natural affections. Their sexual pleasure, which was intended for man and woman in the marriage relationship, became sodomy.

          Since they rejected God, He gave them up to a depraved mind to do those things that are vicious  -- “to do those things which are not fitting” (V. 28). The things not fitting included homosexuality, injustice, destructive behavior, greedy, deep-seated hate, selfishness, murder, quarrelsome with anger, dishonest, extreme evil, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, braggers, inventors of evil things, senseless, faithless, heartless toward family, pitiless, cruel and ruthless. “Who knowing the ordinance of God, that they that practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also consent with them that practice them” (V.32) They not only did these things, but they rejoiced when others did them!

          My friend our next election is a struggle for the very survival of our nation and religious freedom. This election will determine if we are a free nation or whether we only have an illusion of democracy controlled by a handful of ruling elites.

          Just as Elijah addressed these words to the people of Israel, who had allowed themselves to be influenced by a false party (Baal), they apply to voters today. So many people today are influenced by mainstream media, owned by globalists, “How long halt ye between two opinions?” (I Kings 18:21)

          Many Christians, in our society, are limping between two sides  -  one to keep silent and the other to speak out. We need the total mobilization of all Christians in our nation to raise up, wake up, and to speak out! We can no longer sit on the sidelines and give in to the sin of tolerance which accepts anything and everything that society is doing.

          The true picture of America’s moral condition is paralleled by Paul’s description of the Gentile world  -- Wake up and vote Biblical values!
