Ask him now how he likes his bargain!

(Thomas Watson, “Doctrine of Repentance”)

“The deceitfulness of sin” Hebrews 3:13

Sin is a mere cheat. While it pretends to please us, it beguiles us!

Sin does as Jael did. First she brought the milk and butter to Sisera–then she pounded the tent peg through his head! Judges 5:26

Sin first courts–and then kills!

It is first a fox–and then a lion!

Whoever sin betrays–it kills!

Those locusts in Revelation are fit emblems of sin:
“They had gold crowns on their heads . . .
They had tails that stung like scorpions, with power to torture people.” Revelation 9:7-10

Judas pleased himself with the thirty pieces of silver–but they proved deceitful riches. Ask him now how he likes his bargain!

  1. Hi Tishrei,

    Boy! … This post sure “hits the nail on the head”….. People want to forget about the dangers they are courting, when they imagine they are enjoying their sin….. But, they are always fooling themselves.

    Thank you for posting this.


  2. Hi Tishrei, Yes, how true! Thanks for your post. And enjoy your weekend. Jan
