Water of Gall
Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD.( Jeremiah 8:14 ) KJV
Water is the physical medium in which cause and effect are linked. Water is the essence of free will. God gave us free will and we used it. We are now living through the consequences.
