Unrepentant Sin Always Brings Ruin
Isaiah 3:8-11 (KJB) For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory. 9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. 10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. 11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.
The people were brazen about their sin, choosing to openly defy the commandments of God. Their rebellion and opposition against God brought ruin to their lives. There is a direct correlation between sin and destruction recorded over and over again in the Bible.
The reward of the wicked has always been destruction, while the reward of godliness is perpetual sweet fellowship with God. The city of Sodom proudly masqueraded flagrant sin and was rightly rewarded for this abomination by fire and destruction. Nobody can wage a spiritual war against God and expect to come out on top.
The just reward for unrepentant sin has always been God’s unrelenting eternal wrath.
The just reward for a repentant heart and obedience to His will is eternal life and blessings from God.
