The Seductress’ Trap

Please Read Ecclesiastes 7:26 Proverbs 22:14

Be afraid, be very afraid of falling into the seductress’ trap. She is more bitter than death. Only the man who pleases God will escape her. Willful sinners on the other hand are doomed. She has assisted many to the grave, and to hell. Only a fool will not take such a threat seriously.

The mouth of an adulteress is a deep pit the Bible says. Her speech is smooth as butter. So slippery-smooth that the gullible fall for her trap without even knowing it. Flattery is one of her main tools. (Proverbs 29:5) The man who is under God’s wrath is easy prey. He doesn’t stand a chance. But how blessed is the man who pleases God. The Lord protects him from her. He receives help where he is weak in his flesh. God rescues him from her bonds. Those who please God are truly blessed because they are the only ones who will escape her.

God warns to stay far away from her, and not to go near the door of her house. To disregard this is to play with fire. And we will get burned. (Proverbs 6:27-32) Not listening to God means losing our dignity, our money, and other assets to her. All of our hard work will be spent on her and her house. And she cares nothing for you at all. Her heart is hard as stone. Living promiscuously leaves you empty. In the twilight years of your life you will groan God says. You will feel like a used up rag that’s been shredded into many pieces. That’s not the way to spend your final days on earth.

Today cheating on one’s mate is glorified. Men and women both brag about having another’s partner. But the bad joke is really on them. Satan and his demons have tricked adulterers into believing they are winning at being wicked. And all the while they are destroying their souls. (Proverbs 6:32) What a price to pay. God says at Hebrews 13:4 marriage should be honored by all, and that He will judge adulterers and all the sexually immoral. Those who choose to live this way know the consequences. (Romans 1:32) No one will be able to tell God, “I didn’t know.”

THERE IS HOPE

Please Read Proverbs 28:13 1 John 1:9 James 5:16

Thank God sexual immorality is not the unforgivable sin. All have sinned (one way or another) and fall short of God’s glory. (Romans 3:23) If we are willing to confess and renounce our sins we will find mercy from God. We should also confess our sins to one another, and pray for each other so that we may be healed. We shouldn’t let embarrassment stop us from confessing our sins to each other. Remember, all of us have and still do sin one way or another. The important thing is that we follow God’s instructions to be healed. He is the only one that can free us from the bondage of the wayward woman/man or any sin. Also remember, only those who please God can escape the seductress’ trap. So please God by confessing and repenting from sexual sin.
