No Pity on Angels or Men

God did not have pity on the angels that sinned. He had them tied up and thrown into the dark pits of hell until the time of judgment.  And during Noah's time, God did not have pity on the ungodly people of the world. He destroyed them with a flood, though he did save eight people, including Noah, who preached the truth.  God punished the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and this is a warning to anyone else who wants to sin.

2 Peter 2: 4 - 6

Did you know that the first sin did not happen in the Garden of Eden?  That was where the first man and woman sinned, but disobeying God did not begin with Adam and Eve.  

The Bible does not tell us the story of the “First Sin.” Angels sinned before Adam and Eve joined in the rebellion.  God’s Word does tell us the story of the remedy for sin in the human race.  Jesus Christ bled and died on the Cross so that men and women could escape the penalty of their sins and become one with Christ forever!

These verses from 2 Peter say that God does not have pity on angels or people who sin.  If you ask for God’s pity because of your sin, you will not get it!  If you ask for His Mercy and Grace because of the Blood of Jesus you will be transformed into the very image of God’s Son and live with Him forever!

Your problem with sin is not a matter of self control.  After Adam and Eve sinned every human being was born with a nature that loves to sin, and they do it.  You can’t fix sin by the determination of  your will.  The sin problem can only be eliminated by the Blood of Jesus Christ.

“Lord Jesus, praise You now and forever for giving Your Blood to cover my sin.  Thank You Jesus for Your Mercy and Grace and Your love for me.  Amen.”
