Found Out and Fractured in Twain #19

Wednesday, January 27, 2021

“But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23 KJV).

Doubtless, we never want to sensationalize or exaggerate. However, the fact remains, some dark days are ahead for the United States and the rest of the world. What can we Bible-believing Christians do?

Keep reading Romans chapter 1, paying attention to its final verses: “[28] And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; [29] Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, [30] Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, [31] Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: [32] Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

Wow! Dear friends, there is our society—in all its “glory!” Despite our innumerable technological advancements, we are still just as evil and savage as our ancestors were 2,000 years ago when Romans was written. In the names of “progress,” “tolerance,” and “inclusion,” we have normalized sin. It is all the more appalling to realize we did it while possessing a completed Bible for the last 20 centuries. During the past 400 years—since the Pilgrims landed on these shores with a Geneva Bible—we Americans have outright ignored the Scriptures. How foolish we were if we thought we would get away with it! No matter the dispensation, the fact remains, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17). Sin has a payday someday… whether minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, or millennia later. That applies to individuals, families, nations, and the whole world.

As human “civilization” deteriorates with each passing day, is not the reality of sin’s consequences becoming increasingly apparent? Having consistently excused sin, we have made ourselves vulnerable to a whole lot of problems we never dreamed our sin would use to fracture us in twain once it found us out….
