~~ Pits without water ~~
Jeremiah 14King James Version (KJV)
14 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah concerning the dearth.
2 Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.
3 And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters: they came to the pits, and found no water; they returned with their vessels empty; they were ashamed and confounded, and covered their heads.
4 Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the plowmen were ashamed, they covered their heads.
5 Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it, because there was no grass.
6 And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass.
7 O Lord, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name’s sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee.
8 O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?
9 Why shouldest thou be as a man astonied, as a mighty man that cannot save? yet thou, O Lord, art in the midst of us, and we are called by thy name; leave us not.
10 Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.
11 Then said the Lord unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.
12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
Today as I watched the flying creatures attempting to find necter on my artificial flowers, I was reminded of this scripture which God revealed to me many years ago.
The nobles sent their little ones to the waters; they came to the pits and found no water. Water in Scripture is connected with finding salvation. We must get to the water, be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; Acts 2. The water of his spirit and word must be given into our souls, via the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
The pits are the churches. When the churches are dry and have no moving of the Spirit of God and do not baptize rightly for the remission of sins, the people who come there seeking salvation, cannot find it. Their pit is dry.
The little ones, (humans), return with their vessels EMPTY. They leave just as empty as they came. Singing is not going to fill a soul with the water of life. Even preaching is not going to do the job. The Holy Ghost must be moving to fill that empty soul. Little children go to church, hoping to find something for their soul. They are sent out to play and therefore have no access to the Savior or the water of life. The pit is dry for them, so their vessel is never filled.
Thus they are ashamed and confused. They are told to fake it. They are told just believe and you have it. But they leave as empty as they came. They are confused and find no place in God. They then covered their heads, a sure sign of rejection. (tell the woman to cover her head for she cannot speak = OT law or bondage)
The ground is chat for there was no rain. This is showing a church or single person, so without the moving of the Spirit and blessing of God that the ground of their life is so dried up it is like the earth which has had no rain in a long time. The plowmen, or those supposed to be teaching the Word, were ashamed, so they covered their heads; again showing they are rejected and have nothing to say.
Verse 5, even when a babe is born, it is forsaken because there is no spiritual food in this place for it.
Verse 8, is speaking to Jesus… Savior, why should you be as a stranger in the land, as a wayfaring man that has turned aside. This is what the dead, dry churches do to Jesus. They have a make-believe ‘jesus’; but the True Jesus is a stranger to them. He is not in their midst for they will not allow that.
Verse 9, why should Jesus be as a man astounded, as a mighty man that CANNOT SAVE? See, when a church denies the one and only means of salvation, as taught in the book of Acts, that church is giving out that Jesus cannot save. There is no other means of obtaining salvation. So they are denying salvation to the littles ones who come to their pits.
Verse 10… The Lord does not accept this people. He will visit their sins. God told the prophet not to pray for this people for their good. He said when they fast I will not hear their cry or accept anything from them. It is time for them to be consumed. The dead, dry churches or pits, have brought the wrath of God into their midst. He is now finished with waiting for them to repent. Judgment has struck. God is tired of the little ones being turned away and given no water of life.
They are as the humming birds, the bees, and other insects, which seek food on my artificial flowers. They see the beauty, the color and it deceives them into thinking these flowers are alive and can feed them. These churches are artificial drinking fountains. They are dry pits. They deceive those who come to their pits into thinking they are going to feed their hungry souls; but they have no food so the people leave hungry and just as empty as when they came. God is angry for this to continue and is fixing to bring judgment on these dead churches, having a form of Godliness, but denying the POWER thereof. To deny the power of God is the worst of sins.
