“When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.”
Sin brings with it many wicked things.
It affects everything around it and condemns those who possess it.
Sin brings contempt.
“Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.”
Sin brings reproach.
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
Sin brings shame.
“When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.”
Sin brings death.
“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
There are many other things which sin brings to those who are wearing the whole armour of God. The Truth of the Scriptures enables us to fight the battle against sin and the temptations of the devil. We must choose to stand with the armour of God as our defense, and the Sword of the Word as our only weapon.
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
No matter what sin brings, the Lord is able to give the victory when we trust in Him.
