«I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your Idols I will cleanse you
EZEKIEL 36:25, ESV W
While in South America, I was able to travel to one of the most amazing waterfalls in the world—Iguacu Falls. The falls are located on the border between Brazil and Argentina. Once you get there, there are several different hiking trails, each offering a great view of the waterfalls. There are even some boardwalks that take you right out to the edge of where the water is falling. If you really want to get a close-up look at the falls, you can take a jet boat to the place where the falls are crashing down at the bottom. After getting our tickets for the boat, we were handed a package and soon discovered it was a rain poncho. Apparently, we were going to get wet!
Soon, the jet boat took off and sped toward the base of the waterfalls. As we neared the falls, we noticed an increase of mist in the air. As we got closer, it became more like a solid sprinkling. Moments later it felt like a heavy rain. The boat pushed even closer to the base of the falls, and the rain became more like a storm with raindrops pelting us hard. Finally, the boat reached as far as it could go, only feet away from where the waterfalls were crashing into the pool below. We were only there for a few intense moments, but we experienced hurricane-type conditions. We were getting pounded, and even though we wore ponchos, by the time we reached land again we discovered that all our clothes were completely soaked anyway. One thing is for sure though, we felt clean afterward!
Everyone uses water to get clean, but GOD uses water in the BIBLE as an example of how HE can clean us from impurities. We are born sinners to this world, but GOD offers us a way to be cleaned when we repent and ask GOD for forgiveness. Ask GOD to give you a clean heart today.
