A firm warning

Hebrews 10.31

26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:26-31

I know, I know, I know! In the world’s eyes and even some believers, I am suppose to skip over the verses above. Surely, a God of love would not say such things. There is only one problem, He did. And just as He is not a man that He should lie in regards to my finances, my marriage, my health, my need; He is not a man that He should lie about the due wage for sin. The wage of sin is death, separation from God and hell.

I know, I know, I know! You get to make your own choice! You do, you do, you do! But know, God is not a man that He should lie. It is a dreadful thing for a man who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, who has insulted the Spirit of Grace, to fall into the hands of the living God.

We are privileged to make our choice, but not to determine the consequences of our choice. God has already told us the consequence. I plead with you, choose wisely!

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
