Come Ye to the Waters
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Isaiah 55:1
thirst (thûrst)n.1.a. A sensation of dryness in the mouth and throat related to a need or desire to drink.b. The desire to drink.2. An insistent desire; a craving: a thirst for knowledge.intr.v. thirst·ed, thirst·ing, thirsts1. To feel a need to drink.2. To have a strong craving; yearn.
When I think of thirst, real thirst, I think of someone in the desert crying for water and seeing mirages. I have been very thirsty for God before. We have to be careful in our quest of thirst that we don't imagine a mirage. A mirage could be false teaching or false doctrine. I have witnessed to people in the past and then they go join a false doctrine. It just makes me think of the verse- And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 2:11 And I can tell that it is a very strong delusion.
I love the verse in Isaiah how it says that we could come buy wine and milk without money. If you notice that many of the false doctrines always seem to ask for money. It just a though I had. God's water also satisfies.
....but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. John 4:14
