Stop Trying To Blend in With Your Sin

Good Morning! ” STOP TRYING TO BLEND IN WITH YOUR SIN!” Proverbs 28:13 He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. This morning I was thinking of the enemy’s strategy to keep people bound in sin. The plan of the enemy has always been to cover who God loves with what God hates separating the two by sin!! Since the beginning of man the enemy has used a military strategy of “DIVIDE AND CONQUER” If he can succeed at dividing you from a God that loves you and move you to isolation, in isolation he can destroy you! I want to draw your attention to Adam and Eve when they sinned in the beginning by eating of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil!!! Genesis 3:7-9 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” Notice Adam and Eve immediately attempted to cover up their sin. Covering up your sin will get you nowhere but further bound in that sin and further away from God!!! They attempted to use the leaves off of the tree to cover up their nakedness to hide their sin from God!!! They tried to use the natural leaves of this world to fix a spiritual problem!!!! There is nothing in this world that can cover your sin, no lie, no secret, no council, no amount of time!!! Only the applied blood of Jesus can wash man’s sin away! Not only did Adam and Eve cover themselves with leaves they took it a step further and HID IN THE TREES!!! I read that and it occurred to me that the color of the leaves on the them as they hid in the trees would create camouflage as they blended in with this World!!!!!!! They put on leaves and hid in the trees!! The strategy of hell is to lead you to sin, cover you with the World and then try to blend you into atmospheres and convince you that God will not notice your sin!!! A blending process of the enemy has occurred in your life when no matter what atmosphere you go into after you sin you still know how to say the right Christian things to keep the attention off your sin. You blend with the World and you blend in with the believers as you attempt to pretend that you are not in sin! Some people are so far in sin they seek to overcompensate for their lack of Holiness by saying the right things that make them appear Holy! Some people bound in sin even speak stronger against sin to get the attention off of their sin!!! Here is the reality!! Adam and Eve could not hide their sin from God no matter how good they tried to blend in and neither can you!!!!!!!!!! God asked the question ADAM WHERE ARE YOU!!?? Not because God did not know where Adam was but because Adam lost sight of where Adam was!! The loving God of the universe is always calling His people to come out of sin! And when Adam was willing to come out from blending in with the trees, a healing process could happen! The Lord killed an animal and covered him with the skin which is a picture of how only the blood of Jesus will cleanse mankind!! God is calling anyone that is bound in sin this morning to come out from running, hiding, and blending to a place of surrender!!! The blood of Jesus is enough to set your free!! Do not attempt to hide your sin from God it will only kill you!!! The love of God is ready to embrace you this morning!!!! Confessing and forsaking your sin opens the door to God’s mercy!! God bless!! I pray you have an amazing week in Jesus!!!!:)
