Numbers 32:23 says, “Behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out.”
Galatians 6:7-9 says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Dr. Huxtable (Bill Cosby) has been found out and he is reaping what he has sown. A word to the wise, including Judge Kavanaugh, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Hybels, President Trump, and others: When you are accused of something, the best thing to do is to admit that you are a sinner and that you are capable of doing evil things. Perhaps you did not do the specific thing you are being accused of, but it is good for you to admit that you are capable of doing similar evil. Saying things like Judge Kavanaugh said in his interview on Monday, such as, ‘I was a virgin all thought high school and college; and I’m not capable of doing such acts,’ and talking about how ‘good and kind’ you are is asinine and makes you sound and look like you’re lying. I personally would like to see Kavanaugh become a Supreme
Court Justice, but he is not Jesus. All of us can at least admit we are capable of sin.
In Numbers 32, the children of Israel are admonished to keep their promise of obedience to the Lord as they prepare to enter the Promised Land. If they don’t the Lord promises them in verse 23, “But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the LORD, and be sure your sin will find you out.” Warren Wiersbe said, “Moses repeated their promise and added a word of warning: If they didn’t keep their promise, they would be sinning against the Lord, and their sin would catch up with them! The phrase ‘Be sure your sin will find you out’ is often used in evangelistic appeals, and it can have that application, but the original intent was to admonish God’s people.”
We all need to understand that it is important to confess our sins now because they will catch up and be revealed in the future.
