Deceitful Sin and the Hardening of the heart
Deceitful Sin is not something we do much about in America. Afterall, we are politically correct, it is not sin. If we can legislate it, then it is okay; even with God. We are also smooth, rich, and in need of nothing. We are also religious and here we are the paramount experts on being religious while also being Deceived by this thing we call Deceitful Sin
by the Watchman Dana G Smith
Hebrews 3:13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;
15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
Spring will soon arrive. It is always great to see green, the mark of life, growing around and sprouting up after a winter in our part of the country. We know snow, cold, chill, freezing temps, and the hardness of that time of year. The Canadian Geese are in the river and are noisy. They too, seemed to be happy that the seasons are changing. It won’t be long before the small ones will be arriving and you will see a gaggle of them in the water and on the shore.
The birds, squirrels, deer, antelope, and even most people seem to be quite happy that this time has arrived. For the most part, the troubles of the world and this nation are a faraway land somewhere. People here tend to get lost in their everyday lives and trust their government to bring home the policies and governance the nation needs. This has been going on for decades now and the policies that we have been ignoring are being laid at our doorstep. We finally are realizing that the congress and government left to itself is trouble. Our forefathers warned us and we gave no heed. As well, our lack of holiness, purity, and godlessness has brought to America the wrath of God. Howbeit, many still are blind and deaf to that fact.
