In times like these when many are yielding to temptations, we have a solid assurance from God's word that Jesus is able to keep us from falling. If we cooperate with Him, the Lord will do all that is required to present us faultless before the presence of His glory. He is always there to help us overcome every temptation the devil brings our way.
Many are being deceived to take pleasure in committing secret sin, not knowing that those who have gone before them are already in the depths of hell. Be not deceived, even your evil thoughts are loud enough in the ears of the Lord and they are punishable by Him except you repent. Be warned and endeavour to live your life before the Lord rather than before men.
Godly wisdom is better than strength and weapons of war. The great king that went against the little city in verse 14 of Ecclesiastes chapter 9, was defeated by the wisdom of a poor wise citizen of that besieged city. With godly wisdom you can defeat the enemy and accomplish great things for your community. They are wise that keep the word of the Lord; although their strength may be little, no man can shut the open door the Lord has set before them.
One of the reasons why we read, study and meditate on the word of God, is to arm ourselves for victory in the face of temptation. Every time Jesus was tempted either directly or indirectly by the devil, he overcame by speaking the written word. Learn to hide the Word of God in your heart, that you may have what to say in the hour of temptation. You must deliberately make out time to read and meditate on the word of God.
Small or big, every sin leads to destruction and death. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The wages of sin is death. In His wisdom, the just and righteous God has determined to punish every sinner in hell fire, except they repent. The type of sin committed does not really matter; lying and murder will attract the same judgment - eternal destruction. Therefore, to escape the judgment of God, you must abstain from all appearance of evil.
