Have the con men of this world tricked you into placing your faith in an eternally raw spiritual deal?
Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel. (Proverbs 20:17 KJV)
There are many con men and women operating in this world finagling their way into one sweet worldly deal after another benefiting themselves while leaving fools hanging on for dear life at the end of a raw deal. The truth is these spiritually raw deals have a wage of death attached for those who follow after the scheming of the god of this world.
God does not make deals or reason with mankind. God has nothing to do with deceitfulness or craftiness. God has set a holy and perfect standard which has never changed since the beginning of time. God is not fooled by the sweetness of man’s deception, empty promises, and will exact a wage for all lack of faith in His work leading to both physical and spiritual death. God eternally rewards men and women who by faith conduct their lives according to His standard while they journey in this world.
Satan’s dark spiritual warriors gamble away any possibility of eternal life through choosing an evil association with of the god of this world as well as trying to pull other unsuspecting men into this vortex of death. Physical death will cause a permanent eternal division between God and the god of this world. The dark warriors of the god of this world will face both physical and spiritual death for their lack of faith in the eternal things of God.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 KJV)
The devil is always at work orchestrating his crafty dark schemes on this earth. Often it may seem as if he and his dark cohorts are winning the spiritual battles but God always has the upper hand and the final victory rests in His work upon the cross. The dark army of the god of this world will face the rewards of their dark fruit making what was once sweet for them upon this earth become sour and agonizing in the eternal realm; the wages of living in sin upon this earth. These dark warriors will be given a one way pass to the agonizing fires of Hell without the presence of God forevermore.
God’s warriors will be rewarded on this earth according to God’s will but will have abundant rewards in the eternal realm to come as we share in honoring and glorifying Him forevermore in the brilliance of His light around the heavenly throne.
