"You have sinned against the Lord, and be sure your sin will find you out." (Numbers 32:23)
Do you believe that your sins can be hidden forever ?
Sin and its judgement are real. No human being can dodge and escape from it. We reap what we sow, and sins can't be undone, only forgiven. "I will arise and go to my Father, I have sinned against heaven, and against you, and am no longer worthy to be called your child." "My child, your sins are forgiven." Always remember that your sins will come to light one day or the other. Your face, your body, your children, your conscience will speak who you are and what you are. Finally, you have to stand for judgement in the court of Justice. So before you think, say, and act anything, double check that it is in accordance with the eternal love and word of God. Even at the risk of your life, resist the temptation to sin. If we do sin, be ready to face the consequences of it.
Bernhard Frank, a 99 year old Nazi Elite SS, who had signed the "Start Order" that commenced the genocide of Europe's Jewish population, has been under cover over six decades. After years of research and undercover work by Mark Gould, a Jewish relative of one of the victims of Genocide, confronted The SS Colonel Frank last Thursday. At a video-taped meeting in Frankfurt, he listed his alleged crime against humanity and presented a copy of the law suit newly filed in a US Federal Court in the District of Columbia. It is the first time that a heir of those murdered by Nazi atrocities have brought civil suit against one of the perpetrators of the Holocaust.
The way of the sinner is hard. The soul that sinned shall die., "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap" (Galatians 6:7).
