So the man told God he didn't need WATER
to live. "I live just fine in the desert without your WATER
I don't want or like the WATER
God heard the man and saw he did not drink the WATER
. God still provided the man with his coffee, his cola, his juice, his fruit and many more things that included water
. Still, the man did not drink of the WATER
that God had provided.
As the man grew old he saw his coffee, his cola, his fruit and many more things that included water
dry up. Yet the man did not drink of the WATER
that God had asked him to....he did not want it.
Because the man did not drink of God's WATER
, after death, he continued to live in the desert, the desert God did not take away from him...there he thirsted continuously for eternity...as he had never drank of the WATER
God had asked him to.
John 4:14 (New International Version)
14 but whoever drinks the WATER
I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of WATER
