TURN AWAY FROM SIN (by benaiah juma) (September 27, 2017) (150).
2Ti_2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
Sin can be defined as an act of breaking God’s laws of righteousness. God has set for us laws that he expects us to follow. These laws are not to harm us but they are to ensure our safety and ensure that the years of our lives are prolonged. Imagine if God allowed us to be sexually immoral, wicked, blasphemous, idolaters, seducers, rapists and so forth what would the world look like? We would be living like animals. The world today is destroyed because of sin, but the grace of God is abundant because there is a remnant that is left that keeps the commandments of God and tries to make the world a better place to live in.
Sin originated from the devil and his demons passed to the woman and finally to the man in the Garden of Eden and finally to all the inhabitants of the earth. Pride is the mother of all sins which originated from Lucifer who desired to be like the most High God. After Adam and Eve rebelled against God, we fell from the grace of God and death and hell was our portion until the Lord Jesus Christ came onto the earth died for us on the cross and broke the power of death with resurrection; everyone who believes in Him is not condemned but anyone who continues to live in sin and rejects the gift of salvation that was offered on the cross by our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ; the wrath of God abides on that person.
Sin destroys a person’s heart and conscience. Sin hardens a person’s heart. That is why you find people who habitually sin do not feel any conviction. Saints may mourn and cry for their abominations but the sinners enjoy and take pleasure in unrighteousness because their faces and hearts have been hardened by sin. Demonic spirits will not be content when you give in to a particular sin, they will keep pushing you until you are consumed by darkness; you will end up becoming a demon in the flesh if you are not careful. There are a lot of people who claim that sin is fun for a season; I am here to tell you that sin is not fun for a season. Sin has severe consequences to the lives of believers and unbelievers.
The following are some of the consequences of engaging in sin.
Sin creates a wedge between God and man;
God hates sin, God destroys unrepentant sinners. Remember what happened during the days of Noah when the world was destroyed by floods because of their disobedience; remember the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where God rained fire and brimstone because of their sins. The word of God tells sinners to cleanse themselves from iniquity and God will hear their prayer. Sin creates a barrier between God and man. When you are living in sin, you make yourself an enemy of God. If you have to maintain a relationship with the Almighty God; you have to live according to his will and depart from iniquity.
Sin destroys marriages and relationships;
when married people commit adultery, the marriage might end in divorce or in severe cases a partner may lose his or her life. Sin causes relationships that existed for a long time to come to an end because of betrayal of trust and many other things.
Sin is a killer;
A lot of people have contracted incurable diseases because of engaging in fornication and whoring around with whores. Sin is a killer, when sin is finished it brings forth death. When unrepentant sinners die; they descend into the heart of the earth and they await the great white throne of judgment there. There is a final abode for the murderers, seducers, whores, whoremongers, adulterers, fornicators, gamblers and all sinners in general and it is the lake of fire and brimstone. The Lord Jesus Christ said that his people are lost out of ignorance; if people understood that the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord they would repent and make it right with God as soon as possible.
God loves those who have a repentant and contrite heart. It is never too late unless a person is dead. Now when you can repent and turn away from your sins; get ready to repent and make it right with the God of the bible. If you are a homosexual; stop being a homosexual, if you are a lesbian stop being a lesbian, if you are a prostitute stop being a prostitute, repent and surrender your life to Jesus Christ before time runs out. Be blessed in Jesus name.
