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!

Disregard Voices Saying God Rejects You

From: Alexander To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, August 29, 2016 12:51 PM Subject: How to tell if Jesus restores you Paul and Victor, My name is Alex. I just turned 25 last week. I live in Chicago. Growing up I went to a large non-denominational church in the suburbs. Big light show, positive message, preaching "basic salvation" of accept Jesus into your heart. You probably know the type. Anyways I went to this church growing up, got baptized at 10 (mostly to be able to eat the crackers with the adults in service) and went to church camp and some short mission trips in Jr. High and High School. Didn't have much in the way of a relationship with God or Jesus. The Holy Spirit was an abstract concept to me, and not a real person. I believed in the sense that I really didn't have a good reason not to, because everyone around me, my family and friends and church community believed. So I didn't have srong convictions about it. Didn't really pray or read the bible. Pretty much jumped into trouble as soon as I could in high school by drinking and smoking and chasing girls, and was mean to my sisters and my parents since puberty and a jerk to a lot of my peer group - basically I never really ever tried to obey Jesus's commands. But I had enough of a fear of Hell not to totally blaspheme. As I got later into high school, ages 16-17, I was starting to doubt the whole thing. Stuck somewhere between not really willing to believe it with my whole heart and soul but no...
