Notice that this does not say “transgression” (6588) (28:2) traps a righteous man. The proclamation is to “evil” (7451b) men.
What does that mean in practical terms? Today the message I am getting is that when the righteous sin they recognize it as sin, repent of that sin and confess it to God. The result? Let’s look at a verse you should all know.
(1 John 1:9 KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.How do the evil respond? In denial. Read the next verse in I John:
(1 John 1:10 KJV) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.They are trapped in their sins and the denial keeps them there.
So? Do a little check. Only you and God can read your fine print. He is waiting to see which direction you choose to go.
