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!

On the Subject of Long Hair for Men
There's been plenty of debate and misconceptions regarding the meaning behind "long hair" in 1 Corinthians 11:14. What is long? What is too long? If Nature is to teach the obvious why is it not clear? We find out.
Obnoxious Liar Believes Himself Holy
From: Lee To: Victor Hafichuk and Paul Cohen Sent: Sunday, January 10, 2016 5:13 PM Subject: The Path of Truth - feedback Dear Mr Hafichuk/Cohen, My name is Lee. I am a son of God, born of the Holy Spirit. (I might have called myself a 'Christian' but that would have very little meaning since there seem to be a lot of them around.) Today I came across your website for the first time, and found it interesting. I have now read/scanned a large number of your articles. I wanted to share a few thoughts, and let me say straight off that I do not want or need a reply. Firstly, it must be said that we seem to have much in common. Like you, I denounce 'church religion', pagan festivals, Sunday Christianity, 'once saved always saved', 'eternal torment', Calvinism, and so on. We also seem to share the view that most of the so-called 'church' is false, and I was glad to read many of the names and ministries you rightly reject. For example, you denounce the GotQuestions website. I had once thought they were a sound ministry, but a few years ago, I wrote to them asking a question and received an answer from a woman who presumed to teach me! I was quite startled. After asking further questions, it transpired that many of their articles are in fact written by women (and only checked by men)! I warned them that not only they were directly disobeying the Lord, but by allowing women to teach their ministry would inevitably fall foul of Satan's deceptions. But they didn't se...
