Why should you die? Turn and live!

Posted by appolus on August 30, 2022

Isa 55:1  Ho, every one that thirsts, come you to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 

What a glorious promise that begins with a “Ho.” In old England it would have been heard in the market place as  “here ye, here ye.” In the Americas it would have begun “Take notice!!!” Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters! The qualification? Thirst. There are those who simply know that there is more to this world. There have always been those who find no particular pleasure in the things of this world. They are the few, although God would have that all men thirst. And so, for those who do thirst He says “come, come to the waters,” and find true abundance. God then wonders aloud and asks some questions of those who do not thirst. “Why do you spend money for what is not bread?” And why do you spend your wages on that which does not satisfy? In an age of the “American dream,” we can surely relate. Does the larger house satisfy your soul? Does the latest car fulfill you? Does your many holidays bring you peace? You spend all of your resources on these things, are you satisfied?

And for the many who have no particular sense of their need, who seem to be quite unperturbed by any issues of the soul, then for them there is no remedy. And so for the few, those who are like the deer who panteth after the waterbrooks and therefore their souls longeth after God, they will find what they are looking for. They will find the waters of life, they will partake of the heavenly wine and their souls will be enlarged by bread from heaven. For those of you who eat and drink and have tasted of the good things of God, you shall delight yourself in abundance. Your peace will be overflowing in a world gone mad. You will have an abundance of joy even when you are surrounding by the mournful wails of a society in decline. Your soul shall live even although you are surrounded by souls that are dying. And even as they die you will continue to hold out these promises of God to them. Say to them brothers and sisters what the Lord said in Ezekiel 18:31-32…… Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die……..For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!”
