We are lied to all the time in real life.. about many things too.

No Sin is not cheap, there is a big price next  to pay for it.. 

The apostle Paul declared in Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” There has always been consequence to sin from the moment Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden (Genesis 2,3).

No Man should ever  think that he can escape the eye of God even if some time has passed..

God has the sin of adultery listed as one of His special 10 commandments – “Thou shall not commit adultery.”

And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord Your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me … You shall not commit adultery …” (Exodus 20:1-14)

.

All sex intercourse outside of marriage, which is defined as an act solely  between a man and a women, including polygamy is immoral because it is stealing that which does not belong to you.. and expect the devil and his followers to falsely disagree here too. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/08/19/adultery/

.

The mouth of an immoral woman is a deep pit; he who is abhorred of the Lord will fall there.” (Proverbs 22:14)  
“My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe My ways. For a harlot is a deep pit, and a seductress is a narrow well. She also lies in wait as for a victim, and increases the unfaithful among men.” (Proverbs 23:26)  
“Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, do not stray into her paths; for she has cast down many wounded, and all who were slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, descending to the chambers of death.” (Proverbs 7:25)  
“For the commandment is a lamp, and the law is light; reproofs of instruction are the way of life, to keep you from the evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a seductress, do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids. For by means of a harlot a man is reduced to a crust of bread; and an adulteress will prey upon his precious life. Can a man take fire to his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one walk on hot coals, and his feet not be seared? So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife; whoever touches her shall not be innocent … Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; he who does so destroys his own soul.” (Proverbs 6:23, 32)
 
“Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but the fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4)  
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9)  
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19)
 
“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.” (James 1:13)
 
“Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul …” (1 Peter 2:11)  
“Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body … Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6:13)
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. Luke 12:5
 
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
 
Revelation 22: 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
 
King David lusted after Bathsheba. He had many wives and concubines, but in the season when kings go off to war, he neglected his duties. Lounging around the palace, he was tempted by the sight of Bathsheba and fell. He impregnated her, and tried to conceal the adultery by bringing her husband back from the wars to sleep with her. Uriah would not lie with his wife because he would not live in pleasure while his comrades in battle were in the field, suffering and in danger.  David arranged for Uriah’s death in battle. Nathan the prophet confronted David, and David’s reaction was not to attack the prophet, but to repent. He repented sincerely and profoundly; his psalms of repentance are still often said today. But God still punished him. David’s infant son, conceived in adultery, died, despite David’s praying in sackcloth and ashes. Even after he forgives us, God still sends us temporal punishment to insure we are not so easily tempted to sin the next time.. .  even to show us that our sins have consequences, for ourselves and for others.
 
 David had sinned, and he falsely even thought that he had  build an effective cover-up plan. He only overlooked one very large detail: you can’t hide your heart from God.
 
 7 Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the LORD God of Israel: “I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. 8 I gave you your master’s house and your master’s wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more! 9 Why have you despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon. 10 Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.’   2 Samuel 12:7-10 NKJV 
 

These were the consequences of David’s sin:

The sword would not depart from David’s family. God would raise up adversity against David from within his family.

God would allow a neighbor (David’s son, Absalom) to have sex with David’s wives in public, since he had taken Uriah’s wife Bathsheba secretly (2 Samuel 12:11-12).

The child that Bathsheba bore by David would die (2 Samuel 12:14).

 

How Did These General Predictions Work Out?

  1.-David’s son by Bathsheba dies. II Samuel 12:15-18A

 2.-Incest and rape within the family. II Samuel 13:1-19

  3.-Premeditated murder within the family. II Samuel 13:20-29

 4.-David’s son flees. II Samuel 13:30-39

  5.-Arsen within the kings household. II Samuel 14:28-33

  6.-Disloyalty and insurrection of David’s throne by his own son. II Samuel 15:1-13

 7.-David needs to flee his own home. II Samuel 15:14

 8.-David himself is cursed and attacked. II Samuel 16:5-13

 9.-Immorality in public by David’s son. II Samuel 16:20-22

 10.-Battle of King David’s forces against his son Absalom’s forces. II Samuel 18:1-8

Day 14- 11.-David’s son is killed. II Samuel 18:9-15

The punishment outlined by Nathan (II Samuel 12:7-15) was immediate at least in the lifetime of David. The sad part of David’s sin was that he would forever be marked as the man who took Uriah’s wife. When the account of Abijam’s reign in Judah is given in the book of 1 Kings it says: “Because David did what was right in the sight of the LORD, and had not turned aside from anything that He commanded him all the days of his life, except in the case of Uriah the Hittite” (I Kings 15:5). The consequence of sin remained.If these consequences seem overwhelming we need only ne reminded of the many  modern day  consequences.

David’s incontinence had consequences far beyond his lifetime. His children inherited his character flaws. Amnon raped his half-sister, and for this was killed by his brother Absalom. Because of David’s weakness of character, he could not discipline Absalom, and Absalom rebelled. Solomon shared his father’s lack of sexual restraint and introduced idolatry into Israel by his foreign wives. Israel was punished for this idolatry by the division of the kingdom, by the disappearance of the Northern Kingdom, and by the Babylonian Exile. The compilers of the Pentateuch saw the same flaws at work at the beginning of human history, when Adam followed his wife into disobedience rather than obeying the law of the Most High

   Because God is holy, He cannot accept what is evil into His presence and fellowship. Thus, ALL MEN are under one verdict.Sin brings curses! You cannot sin deliberately without reaping the consequences of your actions.he had to live with the curse he had brought upon his family and his nation also by his actions. We do not live in a vacuum – our sins always have an impact on the lives of others.  Exodus 32:33 Romans 5:12  Romans 6:23A

A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. ‘Be gracious to me, Elohim, according to Your loving-kindness, according to the multitude of Your tender mercies; blot out my transgressions.
‘Wash me completely from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
‘For I know my transgressions; and my sin is ever before me.
‘Against You, You only, I have sinned, and done evil in Your eyes’ that You might be justified in Your speaking and be clear when You judge.
‘Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.
‘Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts; and in the hidden parts You teach me wisdom.
‘Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
‘Cause me to hear joy and gladness; the bones You have crushed will rejoice.
‘Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
‘Create in me a clean heart, Elohim; and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
‘Do not cast me out from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
‘Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
‘I will teach transgressors Your ways; and sinners will turn back to You.
‘Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, Elohim, Elohay of my salvation; my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
‘Adonai, open my lips and my mouth shall declare Your praise.
‘For you do not desire sacrifice, or I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering.
‘The sacrifices of Elohim are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, Elohim, You will not despise.
Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem.
‘Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole offering; then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.’ ” Psalm 51:1-19
 
Next King David endured with understanding the chastisement he received for the sins he committed with Bathsheba and against her husband Uriah the Hittite; and he repented and turned back to God with his whole heart. Next also  three of his sons continued transgressing the Word of God too , which sadly cost them their lives AND BROUGHT GREAT PAIN TO KING DAVID TOO.
Psalms 19:
7    The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8    The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9    The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10    More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11    Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12    Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13    Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14    Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Luke 2:39-52

[39] When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. [40] And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

[41] Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. [42] When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the custom. [43] After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it. [44] Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends. [45] When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him. [46] After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. [47] Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. [48] When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

[49] “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” [50] But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

[51] Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. [52] And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

It is really sad that desperate, oppressed sheep want to believe anything without checking directly with God, Jesus,  the Holy Spirit first. 1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Revelation 16
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The devil wants us to be ostriches, to take his false abuses and to falsely shut up.. but no way,, we all still do have a right to speak and to be heard.

But  we serve God and not ourselves, we are only God’s  servants.. doing that which he God  has commanded us to do

Matthew 10
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

Revelation 7
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

2 Peter 2
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Luke 7
22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

and he Jesus was prophetically telling us to tell the Baptists that Jesus still heals today too ehh

Matthew 21
6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

Mark 13
34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Luke 17
9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.

Acts 1
4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

Acts 10
42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

Acts 13
47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

Matthew 23
23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Matthew 25
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Luke 17
10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.

Matthew 5
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Philippians 4
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

 

Hebrews 6

10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;

James 5

11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

1 John 1

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

2 John 1

8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
