In His Word Friday - October 21, 2011



Only those who sin will be put to death. Children won’t suffer for the sins of their parents, and parents won’t suffer for the sins of their children. Good people will be rewarded for what they do, and evil people will be punished for what they do. 
Supposewicked people stop sinning and start obeying my laws and doing right. They won’t be put to death. All their sins will be forgiven, and they will live because they did right.  I, the Lord God, don’t like to see wicked people die. I enjoy seeing them turn from their sins and live.  
But when good people start sinning and doing disgusting things, will they live? No! All their good deeds will be forgotten, and they will be put to death because of their sins. 
Youpeople of Israel accuse me of being unfair! But listen—I’m not unfair; you are! If good people start doing evil, they must be put to death, because they have sinned. And if wicked people start doing right, they will save themselves from punishment. They will think about what they’ve done and stop sinning, and so they won’t be put to death. But you still say that I am unfair. You are the ones who have done wrong and are unfair!
I will judge each of you for what you've done. So stop sinning, or else you will certainly be punished.  Give up your evil ways and start thinking pure thoughts. And be faithful to me! Do you really want to be put to death for your sins? I, the Lord God, don't want to see that happen to anyone. So stop sinning and live! (Ezekiel18:20-32 CEV)[Emphasis added]

  1. Hello Rebecca,

    Thanks for sharing HIS Word. I do believe that GOD will judge each of US for what WE HAVE DONE.

    I pray God to give me the words, the the knowledge of his wisdom so that I walk before his step and extend God's comfort to everyone around me.

    Much blessings

    Grac

  2. Love this Rebecca!! I am so happy that our sins are forgiven, that once we turn from those evil things and repent, they are not counted against us! I pray I will not go back there again!

    Thanks for joining in!!

  3. I totally agree with this. Some Christians actually don't believe this way. I love Charles Stanley (watch him every week), but he preaches once saved, always saved, can't lose your salvation. I guess I don't really know for sure, but my interpretation of the scriptures is that you don't want to be caught in that lukewarm place! This is why I stand for my prodigal. It has nothing to do with missing my mate...my burden is for his soul.
    Hope you are well. I've been out of blogging for a couple weeks due to birthday festivities and family visiting.
