SAME PENALTY …Please read this!
Romans 1:32, “Who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
There is penalty for every sin committed, but then you may not commit any sin after you are saved and still face the same penalty with those who are committing the sin. You wonder how come? It comes to pass when you approve or support those who are committing the sin.
The Bible lists several sinful people in Romans 1:29-31 “being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful.”
Now, the Bible truth is that, it is not only these sinful people that will eventually go to hell, but all those who support, approve and like their sinful practices.
Satan is trapping so many ignorant Christians today, even though they are not committing sinful acts, but they are supporting, liking those who are doing the sinful acts, and so they are under condemnation of the same judgment.
After you are saved, you don’t take alcoholic drinks again, but as long you still give money to people to drink it, you are under the same condemnation. You don’t drink but you sell alcoholic drinks and advertise the drink, you are under the same judgment with those who drink. You do not drink alcohol but you wear the T-shirt of the alcoholic companies, meaning you are promoting their sinful products, and then you are under the same judgment with those who drink alcohol.
When you use the T-shirt, Pen, Key-Holder, Bag or any product that promotes beer, cigarette, and other sinful products, you are under the same judgment with those who use the sinful products. If you are not drinking beer or smoking but you are working at company where such product are produced or promoted, then you are under the same God’s judgment with those who are using the sinful products.
You don’t wear sinful dress, but you do sow for people to wear it, you sell ungodly dress for people, then you are under the same judgment with people who wear the ungodly dress.
WORLDLY MOVIES AND MUSIC
Many Christians are ignorantly trapped with the webs of worldly support. After your claimed salvation, and you still watch worldly movies, it means you approve their lifestyles and what they are doing, and you are under same judgment of God. How can a child of God uses his money to buy Hollywood, Nollywood or Bollywood movies? How come you are selling and marketing sinful movies and music and you think you will be justified by God? How can a regenerated child of God spends her time to watch worldly movies or big brother naija and other wordly, immoral stuffs? When you do so, it means you approve what they are doing and supporting them with your money and time, and you are still part of the world and will eventually receive same judgment.
If you are a child of God and you still play and listen to worldly music, then you are under the delusion of the devil. Do you know the type of music you listen to, the type of music you put on your caller tune and ringing tone of your phone can determine your eternity? If you are a fan of worldly stars, then it means you approve their lifestyle and you will receive same penalty of God’s judgment with them.
SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWERS
Check the personalities, people and the products you like on your social media profile, if you like any of those secular or worldly singers, artists, etc. it means you approve them and you are going to receive same judgment with them at the end. The Bible says, “that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” You don’t need to practice sinful thing before you receive the penalty of that sin, but as long you support, aid or abet, like or approve those who practice it. You may not be among the people who are committing sinful act, who are living ungodly life, but if you are one of their fans or followers on facebook, Twitter or other social media, then you are equal with them before God.
Watching worldly movies, worldly TV shows and other programs that will not glorify God are some of the end time means Satan is trapping so many Christians to hell. So we will be surprised if rapture sounds and many devoted Christians and ministers miss the rapture, just because of these little foes of worldly delight and support. When the love of God really fills your heart, you will hate worldly movies, music, dress and comedy with passion, you will seriously pray for the salvation of those celebrities, and never be part of them.
The question is that, will you allow Satan to trap and implicate you down with your approval and like of sinful things and people after you have escaped the sinful habits? You need to repent and ask God to forgive you of those worldly things and people. If you are working at company where sinful products like alcohol or cigarette is produced, you will repent and resign without delay. If you have any of those worldly materials, movies or music in your property, you destroy them; if you have any on your phone, you delete them and be free from God’s judgment.
Do not be stupid to partake in another man’s sin; do not be ignorant to partake in God’s judgment of a sin you do not commit, just because you approve those who commit it. Be wise and watchful.
1 Timothy 5:22, “Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure.”
