'A man soweth that shall he also reap' You know, I have a lot of respect for preachers, especially pastors. However, there is some that have my sympathy more than my respect and that is those that tells the people "all you've got to do is sign your name on the book, pay your tithes, be baptized and show up at church. The rest of it will take care of itself." Or, there's those others that tells the people, "Once you have repented, that automatically puts you into the Kingdom of Heaven so you can go on and steal, cheat and lie and all the list goes on and still, when you die, you'll go on to Heaven." That's contrary to the teaching of the word of God. The Bible says he that endureth to the end, the same shall be sowed. It also says as a tree falls, so shall it be. There's that other strange little scripture that says it would have been better for them not to have known the way from after they have known it to depart from it. But ,it has happened to them according to the true Proverb. Wonder why Balaam made the state- ment if he could just only die the death of the saints. The scripture also teaches if the righteous scarcely be saved, where will the sinner and ungod- ly appear. Friends, we have entered into a spiritual war zone. And I believe that 2014 will start separating the wheat from the chaff. We need to get a strong hold and hold on. And remember, the Bible said this, a man soweth that shall he also reap. "Do we fear God and depart from sin?"
