And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2 Timothy 3:15 & 16

Thy word is true from the beginning:
and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
Psalm 119:160

Water: The Source Of Life Or Agent Of Death


Christians often have trouble taking the words of the living God literally. For a long time, false teachers who take the allegorical or spiritual approach to interpreting the Holy Bible have bombarded Christians with many false teachings. In consequence, they have to unlearn many falsehoods before they are capable of receiving spiritual truths from the Holy Scriptures. While there is nothing wrong with teaching the devotional aspects of the Scriptures so that a Christian would know how to live in accordance with God’s words on the practical aspects of his walk with the Lord, the Scriptures however, are primarily meant to teach doctrines so that a child of God would not misapply what is not meant for him and know how to rightly divide the word of truth and be led to the desired end of Ephesians 4:13: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

One very common misinterpretation and misapplication of Scripture is the verse found in Ephesians 3:18: May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; for this verse is almost always without fail fused together with the next verse, Ephesians 3:19: And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. The error of many here is to take verse 18 and force it to apply to verse 19 making the comprehension of the length and breadth and depth and height to be that of the love of Christ.

It is really past finding out why so many English educated Christians have such a comprehension problem with simple English! Perhaps, many of such Christians have read shallow devotional books written by Christians who have no interest in rightly dividing the word of truth, and they simply swallow such unscriptural teaching without ever seriously reading and considering these two verses in their proper contexts. It is so clear in verse 19 that a Christian ought to know the love of Christ that passeth knowledge whose objective is to be filled with the fullness of Christ. To make the criteria of knowing the love of Christ be subject to the multidimensional facets found in verse 18, it is doubtful that any Christian would be able to be filled with Christ let alone the fullness of Christ.

In verse 18, it is the apostle Paul’s desire that Christians may be able to comprehend with all saints the literal breadth, literal length, literal depth and literal height of what God has installed for us. This verse is definitely not dealing with some abstract measurement of the love of Christ because no one could possibly with pen and ink describe the love of God from above in an entire and a complete sense like the hymn writer wrote, “would drain the ocean dry!”

So once this unscriptural approach is taken, the child of God is shut out of so many spiritual truths and he becomes permanently crippled and unable to comprehend with all saints the physical literal dimensions of God’s wonderful and marvelous creation that the Lord would want the child of God to know by studying His holy words.

This book has to do with the physical literal universe in which the God of Creation would want to reveal to the child of God from His inspired and infallible words. It concerns the study of water with respect to the deep, its judgment, space travel and the final condition of water in eternity. The Holy Bible is more than just a book that contains some spiritual principles and the gospel message. The Holy Bible is a supernatural Book! It is both a history book and a scientific book. When scientific facts are revealed from within its pages, they are sure and exact and do not need any proofs to substantiate its claims. Fallen men can always carry out experiments to catch up with biblical science and confirm the veracity of God’s Holy words.

According to Job, we are told that, Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth. (Job 12:15) Just base on this verse alone, we know that water in the hands of Creator God can bring about much harm and damage to fulfill the divine purpose of destruction instead of sustaining life. It is the desire of the author to show the reader from the words of the living God how water could be a source of life as well as an agent of death while bearing in mind what the Lord Jesus Christ tells us, But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. (John 4:14)
