Two great evils!

Posted by appolus on September 23, 2019

For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water(Jer 2:13)

Two great evils the people of God have committed. They have rejected God the fountain of living waters. In that fountain lies abundant life. A never ending source of life giving water. Mercy and grace and forgiveness flows from the source,life itself flows from God Himself. Only by drinking from this fountain can we fulfill our lives in Him. We cannot reject Him and expect to be the recipients of His wisdom and His favor and His life that comes with knowing Him and following Him in obedience. And the people cry out “how have we forsaken Him, how have we rejected Him?.” When you fail to follow His Words and His commands. When you rely upon the works of your own hand and reject the leading and the guiding of the Holy Spirit. So what do a people do who have rejected the life that flows from the fountain of living waters? They hew out for themselves cisterns that they find out cannot hold any water and the hewing of it is a great evil according to God.

As a former Bricklayer, I had an old craftsman when I was an apprentice. He would tell me that when he served his time as a boy, he spent a whole year hewing stone. For those who do not know, hewing stone means to take a block of stone and shape it by hammer and chisel. An arduous and very time consuming task. Blisters and calluses would have been the order of the day, work your fingers to the bone. So we see here in this verse from Jeremiah, that rather than worship God as He had called them to, and drink from the fountain of living water, a never ending wellspring of love and mercy and grace, in short abundant life, they chose to reject God in favor of their own will, and hew out water supplies from rock. It did not work of course, it could hold no water.

Today we see much of Christendom desperately trying to hold water by the work of their own hand. They refuse to worship God as He has called them to, so therefore they must also reject the fountain of living water. Can you hear the hammers and chisels banging away as each new program is brought forward? Will living waters be found in a program? Will it be found in the midst of our routines? Traditions and programs created over centuries. The traditions are the hammer and the programs are the chisels and the blocks of stones are our religious buildings. What it creates never holds any water nor can it ever, it is broken, fundamentally broken. Until and unless Christendom returns to the fountain of living water, it will languish and die in the water-less wilderness it has created for itself.

    Yes Brother, we have chosen flesh over spirit. In Galatians 3 Paul says “Who has bewtiched you foolish Galatians? What began in the Spirit are you now perfecting in the flesh?” Yes – that is the Laodecia of these last days. Rich with no need of anything except these man made vessels. However, the Lord Jesus will soon rent the veil covering our eyes and cause us to see our blind, poor state and we will ask of Him to buy gold refined by fire. He will refine His children and His Church will be the display vessel Ephesians 3:10 declares to all the rulers and principalities. The great shaking in Hebrews is coming! Peter’s prediction of judgment in the House of the Lord first! The judgment will expose the bone (essence of man) Hebrews 12:6. We need to remember the disciples all were martyred – not because they shrunk back and returned to fishing but because they loved not their lives even unto death! Nothing except death could shut them up from anointed preaching! And nothing will stop the Lord’s anointing for this final harvest!!!
    That is coming Brother Frank!!! Very very soon!!! Isreal is back in the land 71 years. The supersign of the Lord’s return – first IN HIS BODY!
