Forgiven Sin Has Consequences

English – Chinese

“And therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife. So says the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against you out of your own house, and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor. And he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun. For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel and before the sun.

And David said to Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said to David, the Lord also has put away your sin; you shall not die. Only, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, this child born to you shall surely die” (2 Samuel 12:10-14 MKJV).

In His Perfect Wisdom, the Lord has seen to it that we reap the consequences of our evil choices. As we have indulged in sin, so sin is left to indulge in us until the debt is met to God’s Specifications and Holy Satisfaction.

The lawless gospel allows for no such thing. While God has paid the price for our waywardness and forgives those who return from Adam to trust Him, He nevertheless determines that we must suffer consequences. Salvation Opportunity and Inevitability are certainly free, but that freedom will cost us everything, beginning with repentance.
There is no magic wand or “Sugar Daddy” to deliver us from the reaping of our sowing. “Be not deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” It is Law.

The lawless gospel so readily believed in the world is a hidden, powerful snare that takes many unwary, yet heartily willing travelers captive on the wide highway of self-delusion.

What to do? Lean on the Savior of all men Who commands that all men should be saved. Jesus is the Answer, is the Answer, is the Answer. Always. Everywhere. In everything. “There’s no other name given among men under Heaven to be saved.” Jesus Christ is He.

Instant, easy redemption works no faith; it works no patience; it works no responsibility or effective fidelity. It only gives an unreasonable facsimile of deliverance and soon leads to disillusionment. It is the Empty Promise of the Usurper whose mission and purpose are to steal, to kill, and to destroy. That promise comes beautifully gift-wrapped with excitement and pleasant feelings. It’s like a great-tasting drink with secret lethal poison.

Be willing to suffer the consequences of your sin. Be willing to wait for the Lord’s chosen time and way of deliverance from all bondage. Thank Him and praise Him for your bondage, your suffering, your helplessness on the one hand, and on the other, for His Promise and Execution of Your Salvation.

Be assured that as you keep on looking to the Lord and Him Alone, your needs will be met, and when all is done, you’ll be perfectly free, clean, pure, and full of unspeakable joy. The Will of the Lord will be accomplished in you.

Lord, You are Gracious and Wonderful, so Patient, Understanding, Wise, and Merciful. You DO love us with all YOUR Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. You can’t expect less from us toward You, seeing You are forming us in Your Image. When You’re done, we will be like You. Your Will be done, Father. Amen!

The Tyranny of Pride
Why are we not offended at insults and evils done to us? It is because God has removed the power and burden of pride in us. He has crucified our egos, which are a hindrance to any man or woman who desires to be free and live life to the fullest.
The Solution for the Russian/Ukrainian War
English - French - Chinese On February 27 or 28, 2022, the solution for the Russian/Ukrainian war came to me. What a surprise! What could that be? Negotiations? Peace talks and treaties? Compromises? Trading resources and rights? Ukraine’s surrender? No, none of the above. Is it prayer? Is it turning to God? Yes, and no, not directly. I don’t understand. Well, the answer sounds so banal, so bizarre, yet so obviously true. Nor can this answer apply to any other adversarial situation like Jews and Muslims in the Middle East, Left and Right, or China and Taiwan and Hong Kong, India and Pakistan. This answer is… wait for it – to love one another. Russians and Ukrainians, you are brothers. You are of one blood. Don’t you know? Let there be no divisions between you. Love and forgive one another. Begin, set yourselves to do good to one another, to look to your brother’s good as your own. Would you help someone you cared for who is in need, like your immediate family? That’s what each of you must do for each other now. You must begin to love one another. Set yourselves individually to do good, no matter what has happened in your history to this present day. It begins with one person, then goes on to the next, and the next. Let the love, the fire of goodwill and action spread, beginning with the smallest of thoughts and acts. Start to displace acts and attitudes of hatred, self-pity, resentment, bitterness, anger, fear, and vengeance with care, consideration, forgiveness, pa...
