VIDEO Be Not Deceived

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Galatians 6:7

One doesn’t have to look far in modern media to find examples of God, and especially Jesus Christ, being made light of; in some cases, mocked. While some would say, “It’s all in good fun; no harm, no foul,” is that a risk worth taking? God does not seem to take mocking lightly. As the writer to the Hebrews wrote, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).

King Belshazzar, the successor to Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon, learned that the hard way. At a drunken feast, he mocked God by having the sacred vessels from the temple in Jerusalem, which Nebuchadnezzar had confiscated decades earlier, brought into the feast to be used in profane ways. But in the midst of their mockery of God, a heavenly hand appeared and wrote words of judgment on the wall. The words prophesied the end of Babylon, a destiny that occurred that very night when Babylon was invaded by the Medes and Belshazzar was slain (Daniel 5:30-31).

There is a universal principle at work in human affairs: “God is not mocked” are words to live by, today and always, for we will reap what we sow.

God is not deceived by externals. C. S. Lewis
