Deer Stepping Into a Noose

He took his purse filled with money and will not be home till full moon.”
With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk.
All at once he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer stepping into a noose
till an arrow pierces his liver, like a bird darting into a snare, little knowing it will cost him his life.
Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say.
Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths.
Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng.
Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.
Proverbs 7:20-27

Like an ox going to the slaughter…deer stepping into a noose…it will cost him his life.

“Sin will take you further than you want to go, will cost you more than you want to pay, and keep you there longer than you want to stay.”

Perhaps you’re reading this and understand completely the verses above. You were caught like a deer stepping into a noose. Or perhaps you were on the other end, the woman’s end. You played that game and used your sex appeal to lure men into your den, so to speak.

If you don’t know it by now, there is forgiveness in Jesus Christ. What does that mean exactly? It means that “if you that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” (Romans 10:8-10).

Those sins of the past can be erased. The guilt can be swept away. But you need to take that first step (confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved). It’s the most difficult step you may ever make but you’ll wonder why it took you so long after you made it. Even now there are men and women reading this who are praying for you and a few others like you. If you’ve made that important first step, write me. We’ll get you in contact with other like minded people in your area who will help you.

Don’t worry, I’m not preaching any church or any denomination. The fact is, though, that there are Believers from all kinds of churches and denominations who would love to hear of your news, and would love to help you “grow” in your faith.
