The consequences of the carnal …


Genesis 19:30-38 records the account of how Lot’s daughters who got Lot drunk and lay with him, in order to preserve the seed of their father. Although at that time, there was not a legal precedent that condemned Lot’s daughters for their act, the consequences of this carnal act was that each of the daughters birthed a son. The first daughter gave birth to Moab who became the father of the Moabites and the second daughter give birth to Benammi, who became the father of the Ammonites – both nations who became enemies of the children of Abraham (the Jewish nation) for many years to come.

The existence of whether a law exists or not does not preclude the fact that carnal (fleshly) acts will have consequences.

Points to ponder:
Remember, there are consequences to the things we do in our carnal state of mind. Are you walking by the Spirit of God or by your carnal nature?

Genesis 19:30-38 (KJV)  
30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:|
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
37 And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

One thought on “The consequences of the carnal …

  1. I don’t believe there is a such thing as a carnal christian. `Or Christians doing things by their carnal nature. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. All things become new.” Old things pass away. The carnal man. All things become new. A new mind. A new spirit. It doesn’t say slowly old things pass away and become new. Being born again mean you are a new person. Not the person you use to be.
