ESCAPED??

ESCAPED??

Featured in the June, 2009 Issue of the Ashburn Baptist News

The most notorious Nazi, Adolph Eichmann, murdered 6 million Jews in Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Romania, Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania.

When the Allies captured Nazi Germany, numerous war criminals were apprehended, but Eichmann escaped.

Assorted rumors had Eichmann killed in action or alive in West Germany, England, Kuwait, the US or even Israel.

Adolph Eichmann was a slick operator changing his name and moving about with forged papers. He created for himself a new identity five times in five years. His SS tattoo had been removed. Sowing disinformation about himself, he escaped through an underground network and disappeared.

Fifteen years later, May 11, 1960, 8:05 pm, he is seized in Buenos Aires,

Argentina, by undercover Mossad operatives. He’s then flown over 9,000 miles in an El Al plane to stand trial in a Jewish court.

If the brilliant, clever Eichmann could not escape Mossad, do you think you can escape God?

The Scripture is clear: “Be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).

Where will you flee? God is everywhere. Where will you hide? He knows everything. What will be your disguise? He will see through it.

The Psalmist said, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there. If I make my bed in the depths, You are there” (Psalm 139:7, 8).

God has His standard; the Law, which we all have broken.

God also has His salvation, which is so costly that none could earn it, but it is provided as a gift even as the Bible says in
Romans 6:23, “The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Jesus said, “Whoever comes to Me, I will never drive away” (John 6:37).
