So they impaled Haman on the pole he had set up for Mordecai. Then the king’s fury subsided. Esther 7:10
Telling lies often will appear to be acceptable, with no cost. People are telling lies on a regular basis and do not seem to have any problems. False reports about people are being spread on a daily basis, to the point, it is difficult to know what is the truth.
Watching the news, one will see many reports of what someone supposedly said or did. There will be reports on both sides of the story, saying the person did it or did not do it.
Haman had spread a false report to the king that the Israelites were out to destroy him and his nation. The king had believed him for a time, and allowed for the destruction of the Israelites.
This plot was discovered and uncovered. This destruction would also destroy the king’s wife–Esther. So the king was against Haman. His lies were uncovered and it cost him his life.
Being deceptive is an easy thing to do and most people will not be able to recognize it. Yet, God is watching and sees all deception and lies being told. He may allow it to happen, but there will be a price to be paid in the end.
There will always come a time when a lie is uncovered for what it was. This may occur in this life, or it may occur when standing before the judgement seat of God in heaven. Telling a lie is a sin and the cost of it is death.
Although one may have lied, Jesus has paid the price for that lie. He paid the price of death for the sin and is willing to forgive when repentance occurs. However, if there is no repentance, the individual will have to pay the price of death.
Lies and any other sin comes with the price of death. The world may not see it, but God does.
You may have done a sin against God at some point. It may appear as though no one has seen it. Know that God has seen it and there will be a price to be paid, whether it is a lie or some other sin. Repent of the sin, while there is still time before the final judgement occurs.
Do not try to pay the price yourself. Allow God to cleanse you of sin and restore you.
I pray today that you will repent of all sin; that you will turn from all sin towards God; that you will live your life for God; and that you know the forgiveness Jesus offers you.
