Can I get a message to the inside,
the place you try and hide
as though you died to the reality
of eternality, your personality
you’ve had all along… shoreline you abide?
The message would be this…
this ain’t no place for bliss,
don’t miss out on the real deal…
it’s not just what you feel that’s
in touch with the muchness you would miss.
Long for eternity, yearn for unity
to gain true serenity, the Almighty
to know your name, it’s His game…
His rules… His goals or you
drag your soul on shoals of infernality.
Long not (not long) for here…
this is the message ‘Oh so clear,’
the sensations are but feelings
far and nearer to death than
desire leads you… away from God’s fear.
God alone holds death’s one key,
this the key to set you free..
don’t bet against Him to be an
idiot in harm’s way with nothing left
to say, like,”I didn’t know you died for me.”
The lie most people choose to accept in this life is ‘this is all there is to life,’ and would miss out on the real truth to life itself- this is not all there is.
13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
13 O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Grace in Christ is compared to water from a fountain, it being cooling and refreshing, cleansing and making fruitful: to living water, because it quickens dead sinners, revives drooping saints, supports and maintains spiritual life, and issues in eternal life, and is ever-flowing. To forsake this Fountain is the first evil; this is done when the people of God neglect his word and ordinances. Is Israel a servant? No, they are the seed of Abraham. Notwithstanding all their advantages, Israel had become like the wild vine that bears poisonous fruit. Men are often as much under the power of their unbridled desires and their sinful lusts, as the brute beasts. But the Lord here warns them not to weary themselves in pursuits which could only bring distress and misery. The nation had not been wrought upon by the judgements of God, but sought to justify themselves. Here is the language of presumptuous sinners. The Jews had long thrown off serious thoughts of God. How many days of our lives pass without suitable remembrance of him!
Have we failed to understand what God will do to His own people, when they are disobedient, and not think it will be worse against those ‘not willing’ to obey Him or listen to what love He has shown us all? We will either be with Him… or without Him (separated) and apart from Him- forever.

Eternal Life. A dominant theme of the New Testament, though not without Old Testament grounding, is eternal (or everlasting) life. Eternal life is therefore one of the unifying themes of the New Testament. It is a term that describes the salvation that God bestows on those who trust and serve him. It denotes not only the length of time that God’s favor extends to his people but also the quality of existence that they may enjoy as they worship and serve him.
Second Death is the concept of what will happen to the unbeliever… seen here, and involves “the person feeling the punishment”- forever.
