In the art parable " FLEE, Be Not Deceived" consider the imagery in the light of eternity.
Do not waste the gift of this life on temporary pleasure with a reward of death.
For the wages of sin are death.
Death is the separation from God, your Creator.
So where will you allow your weary road to take you?
Will you enter into the belly of despair or will you choose the path of Life where you will find joy everlasting?
All whoredom leads to death in one form or another.
Most lust and whoremongering appears as bright and shiny until your eyes adjust to the gloom.
Be not deceived.
When the Lord showed me this image, I thought of Isaiah 5:13-14.
Isaiah 5:13-14 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge:
and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst,
Therefore hell hath enlarged herself and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
* From the Old Testament and the New Testament*
Matthew 7: 13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Ephesians 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Proverbs 12:28 In the way of righteousness is life and in its pathway there is no death.
Deuteronomy 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?
Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers. nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
Consider all of Matthew 13 and the parables that Jesus told us.
God is not mocked.
No matter what you sow..
Life unto life. or death unto death.
There will be a time of harvest.
Will you be wheat or a tare?
What have you decided?
Do you think the Lord delays and does not see?
You have been planted on this earth to bring forth much good fruit.
Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
If you have given the LORD your heart through confessing Him as your Savior, you have received the Spirit of truth, the Comforter from God.
Read John 14:15-18: John 15:26; John 16:13.
Our fleshly nature within the natural man is lustful. As a child of God we have been given the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of God to overcome the works of the flesh: adultery, fornication, uncleaness, lasciv iousness (means unbridled lust, excess, shamelessness, wantoness, insolence..)
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations,wrath, seditions, heresies,
Envyings,murders,drunkeness, revellings, and such like:
of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in the past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21)
God loves you.
Depart from iniquity.
FLEE from that which entices you or binds you to Hell.
FLEE from the wrath to come. Matthew 3:7 and Luke 3:7
