It was late July. Rivers in Yosemite National Park were still swollen and treacherous from a winter of record snowfall. Three tourists ignored protective barriers and warning signs to wade out into the swirling waters at the top of Vernal Falls for a photo shoot. The view was beautiful. Until one of them slipped on a rock, losing his footing, falling into the rushing waters. One reached out to grab him, then another. In seconds, all three were engulfed in the foaming waters rushing to the precipice.
Other visitors to the scene gasped in disbelief as the three disappeared over the crest of the falls.
Yes, there were fences and warning signs but no one standing guard with an automatic weapon to prevent the adventurous from going out into the water.
What an apt description of the times in which we are living! God has established the barriers and the warning signs, but well, most of us think that we know better the temptation is just too great to resist.
We are living during the time of God's final judgment of planet Earth. As the rivers of our moral world, swollen and muddy from six thousand years of sin, rush wildly toward the precipice of eternal ruin, we too seem to be mesmerized by the tantalizing sound of the swirling waters and can't seem to resist. Fortunately, as most of the viewers of the beautiful Vernal Falls respected the protective barriers, so God has a people even now who recognize the true original beauty of the river and choose to relish in that beauty for all eternity.
This book is all about recognizing those protective barriers, to avoid the tempting pitfalls the devil has so cunningly placed to ensnare and drag us into the swirling dark rivers to hell and destruction.
