First By Water, Then By Fire

''First By Water, Then By Fire''

Written By Daryl Stout

1) First by water, then by fire, two methods that God used.
In judgments and baptisms, that The Lord did choose.
Physically and spiritually, these methods there employed.
With new things created, from old things destroyed.

2) In time after Creation, when Adam and Eve fell.
Sin so filled mankind on Earth, in Satan's evil spell.
God was so grieved by the sin, A Flood would be there sparked.
With Noah's family, animals, all saved within the Ark.

3) In the future, at end of Millenium Of Peace.
Rebellion fills Earth one last time, as Satan is released.
All the unsaved ever born, join him in sins desires.
But, God destroys the forces there, by His Righteous Fire.

4) Pharoah's army drowned in waters of the Red Sea there.
God's People now in Exodus, were from that army spared.
The Lord was with His People, as a Cloud and Pillared Fire.
He gave His Ten Commandments there to show what was required.

5) A battle on Mount Carmel there, on who to give the nod.
The One who answered there by fire, would there be deemed ''God''.
Elijah's prayer, The Lord answered, with Fire from the sky.
And, all of Baal's followers, on that day, did die.

6) When John The Baptist saw The Lord, with call to repent.
He said ''Behold, The Lamb Of God, there from Heaven sent''.
''I baptize with water, for repentant, pure desires''.
''He'll baptize you with the Spirit, and God's Holy Fire''.

7) The rich man and the beggar, a story from God's Word.
Not a parable, but truth, in words said and heard.
In torment flame, the rich man, called for cooling water drops.
From paradise, Abraham said ''torment wouldn't stop''.

8) As water cools the fiery flames, while here upon the Earth.
It spiritually cools the Lake Of Fire, to those who have New Birth.
Not going through the motions, but on Christ, you do believe.
Trust and serve Him every day, God's Gift, there receive.

9) The water of baptism, won't save you, as some claim.
It's a testimony, that you called on Jesus' Name.
Dead to sin, and raised in Christ, forsaking sins desires.
You asked Christ to save your soul, from The Lake Of Fire.

10) Water, it won't wash away, every trace of sin.
Only by The Blood Of Christ, can you be cleansed, within.
If you reject Christ Jesus, the One Thing That God Requires...
Your sin there judged eternally, in The Lake Of Fire.
