These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
– 2 Peter 2:17, KJV
The Biblical author likens false teachers to wells without water.
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
What is a well without water? It’s a dry hole.
What else is it good for, other than a pitfall – a trap – by which others might ensnare you with their perverted teachings?
Some people believe they can hide in these dry wells and withstand the troubles of the world, the challenges of life, but there is danger in this approach.
The well without water is devoid of sustenance. You cannot nourish yourself or your Tribe from a dry hole.
Instead, you should look for Manna from Heaven. In the Bible, it says that no one under Moses’s leadership lacked for sustenance, so long as they were obedient to the Lord.
We can learn a lot from Moses.
Moses was as much a military leader as he was a spiritual one, as well as a community manager. He had the responsibility to teach his followers both in the temporal and spiritual things.
Taking control starts with YOU doing the right things and the smart things. Do not rely on these wells without water – they promise something easy, a respite from worldly strife, but we know that you must fight for your freedom.
