“Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”
Hell enlarges itself in order to accommodate the many that are going there.
What a sobering thought that hell is never full.
We must be busy about the Lord’s business, faithfully warning people of the destruction that awaits them if they choose to reject the free Gift of salvation in Jesus Christ.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Just as hell is never satisfied with its number of residents, our eyes are never satisfied. They are always craving more of the pleasures of this world.
1 John 2:15-16
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
Destruction begins by looking in the wrong places.
Adam and Eve were not satisfied within the perfect Garden of Eden. There was only one tree that they were forbidden to eat of and that temptation was enough for them to fall into sin.
“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”
Solomon was a man of Wisdom before he allowed his eyesight to lead him astray. His demise began when his eyes desired the things of this world.
“And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labour: and this was my portion of all my labour. Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.”
We must continually seek Wisdom from the Word of God in order to avoid finding ourselves regretting the vanity of our fleshly desires.
