|Time Of Christ: Eternity Without Water
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
Eternity without water is an eternity without the power of God to deliver you from torment. Jesus used parables to illustrate a point. One can only imagine what a day without God around would be like in our world. No storms would be stopped or natureís fury, the fires in California would rage to other states with no hope of stopping it. The hope of brighter day would only end with more storms and devastation, as nature fury grew angry without hearing the voice of the Lord. In hell God does not quench the fires even for a minute. Hell is place of continual torment. One thought bullying in the school was bad, or the battle in war, it a continual nightmare that has no end.
The rich man found himself in a place of torment without hope. The life he lived was one without compassion for others. Caring not for the needs of others. He would not listen to the word of God about caring for others but only cared about his own wealth and all the luxuries and things he could buy for himself. He then had compassion for his family, but it was to late for he was in place where he could do nothing but beg Abraham for a drop of water and deliverance for his family. He did not want his family in the place of torment. He desire not to have them suffer has he was. He knew he deserved what he got, but yet he still asked for a drink of water to quench his thirst. Abraham told him was impossible to give him a drink, because of the great gulf between heaven and hell. He begged that they would send someone that been raise back to life, and Abraham said even his brotherís would not believe.
The word of God is for today and not for hell. The word of God is to be heard on this side of eternity to bring about repentance and belief in God. Jesus died and rose again. Jesus is living water the quenches the fire of hell from being a part of your eternal life. If you follow Godís word and believe you will never taste the fire and smoke of hell that dry out the mouth leaving one thirsty and in torment for eternity. To believe in Jesus and to obey is to full fill the requirement of salvation if you love and have compassion for others not outwardly alone, but inwardly in your heart. To follow Christ is to turn away from sin. When the believer gets to heaven Jesus will dry all their eyes and feed and give them water of healing, thirst, and deliverance.
Dear Heavenly Father thank you the gift of your Son, who one day will wipe away all our tears if we are believer. Let us not look back and return to sin, but enable each believer to walk humbly before you, by your spirit. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
