WATER of LIFE

 

Revelation 22:1

King James Version

22 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, 

clear as crystal,

For all who thirst for the WORD of GOD, for peace, for healing, find comfort in these verses, which the Holy Spirit of God led me to.

I shall not want.

he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness 

for his name's sake.

IGNORANCE is NOT bliss

 

The CALL to REPENT:

Acts 17:30

King James Version

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; 

but now commandeth all men every where to repent:


Knowing the truth about God, is heaven.

Being kept in sin, is hell.

Jesus is our Savior.

That's really the truth of things.


When times are good, we forget God.

When times are bad, we remember God.

And yet, God is lovingly consistent.

The world offers you sin.

God offers you love.

The world thrives on your ignorance.

God delights in your knowledge of His Son, JESUS.


The world will make sure you don't seek God.

Thus, the many distractions.

Haven't you noticed it yet?

But once those distractions have lost their attraction, you will look for something more meaningful.

Once you wake up, you will begin to question the ways of the world.

You will begin to doubt its intentions.

You will begin to see that things don't add up.

Something is always veiled.

And that's the one that propels you to seek truth.

Even as you initially don't know it's God you're seeking.


God is TRUTH.

The world kept us in darkness.

But God sent His Son to be the LIGHT for our souls.

John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying

I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.


The Lord has already lived it out for us.

He knows what being human is.

The man who knew no sin, bore our sins or us.

His blood saved us from the power of death.

And death thrives in sin.

We cannot continue to be ignorant.

We can only be saved, through Jesus.

He is the WORD of GOD.


How many people really know Christ?

Not all Christians are precise about the Lord.

Neither are they faithful.

You only have to look at how they're living, and you'll know the world is still too much in them.


All who seek Jesus, were given by the Father.

John 6:39

King James Version

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.


And Jesus prayed to the Father, to bring God's Spirit, upon our souls.

John 14:16

King James Version

16 And I will pray the Father, 

and he shall give you another Comforter, 

that he may abide with you for ever;


Anyone who brings you to prayer, knows Jesus.

Anyone who leads you to the Bible, is a worthy friend.

Anyone who teaches you about the simplicity of Jesus, is a person worth listening to.

But anyone who glorifies self, is ignorant.

Jesus didn't even glorify Himself.

He glorified the Father.

John 17:4

King James Version

4 I have glorified thee on the earth: 

I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.


That's why ignorance is not bliss.

What you don't know can hurt you.

You cannot shut out the truth of God.

Jesus commanded we be born again, so we can understand the ways of God.

He also commanded we repent.

And believe the gospel.

For the kingdom of God, is at hand.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


The world wallows in ignorance of God's laws.

Many are indifferent.

Many are hardhearted, and hardheaded.

Which one are you?

Would you be ready, when God decides it's time for Jesus to have His faithful meet Him up in the air -- at any moment?

As followers of Jesus, we have much to do, for the world is asleep.

We want our brothers and sisters awakened in CHRIST.

We cannot bear that anyone be lost.

We cannot bear that anyone suffer, in continuing ignorance.

And it's all so simple.

All we have to do, is believe in the LORD JESUS CHRIST, that He is the SON of GOD.

Acts 16:31

King James Version

31 And they said, 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and thou shalt be saved, 

and thy house.


There is no time to waste.

This is not the time to be ignorant.

It's time to wake up now.

It's time to walk in the Spirit.

FOUNTAIN of LIVING WATERS

 

John 4:11

King James Version

11 The woman saith unto him, 

Sir, 

thou hast nothing to draw with, 

and the well is deep: 

from whence then hast thou 

that living water?


Prophet Jeremiah confirmed it twice.

GOD is the FOUNTAIN of LIVING WATERS.

Jeremiah 2:13

King James Version

13 For my people have committed two evils; 

they have forsaken me 

the fountain of living waters

and hewed them out cisterns, 

broken cisterns, 

that can hold no water.


Jeremiah 17:13

King James Version

13 O Lord, 

the hope of Israel, 

all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, 

and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, 

because they have forsaken the Lord, 

the fountain of living waters.


No wonder, JESUS told the woman at the well, when He asked her for a drink:

John 4:9-10

King James Version

9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, 

How is it that thou, being a Jew, 

askest drink of me

which am a woman of Samaria

for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, 

If thou knewest the gift of God, 

and who it is that saith to thee, 

Give me to drink; 

thou wouldest have asked of him, 

and he would have given thee living water.


Of course, Scripture is replete with verses on God's healing, and saving power.

Psalm 36:8-9

King James Version

8 They shall be abundantly satisfied 

with the fatness of thy house; 

and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

9 For with thee is the fountain of life

in thy light shall we see light.


Psalm 46:3-5

King James Version

3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, 

though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. 

Selah.

4 There is a river, 

the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, 

the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5 God is in the midst of her

she shall not be moved: 

God shall help her

and that right early.


Psalm 65:9-10

King James Version

9 Thou visitest the earth, 

and waterest it: 

thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, 

which is full of water

thou preparest them corn, 

when thou hast so provided for it.

10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: 

thou settlest the furrows thereof: 

thou makest it soft with showers: 

thou blessest the springing thereof.


Isaiah 12:2-3

King James Version

2 Behold, 

God is my salvation

I will trust, 

and not be afraid: 

for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song

he also is become my salvation.

3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water 

out of the wells of salvation.


Isaiah 44:3

King James Version

3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, 

and floods upon the dry ground: 

I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, 

and my blessing upon thine offspring:


Joel 3:18

King James Version

18 And it shall come to pass in that day

that the mountains shall drop down new wine, 

and the hills shall flow with milk, 

and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, 

and a fountain shall come forth 

out of the house of the Lord, 

and shall water the valley of Shittim.


Amos 5:24

King James Version

24 But let judgment run down as waters, 

and righteousness as a mighty stream.


Zechariah 13:1

King James Version

13 In that day 

there shall be a fountain opened 

to the house of David 

and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem 

for sin and for uncleanness.


Zechariah 14:6-9

King James Version

6 And it shall come to pass in that day, 

that the light shall not be clear, 

nor dark:

7 But it shall be one day 

which shall be known to the Lord

not day, 

nor night: 

but it shall come to pass, 

that at evening time it shall be light.

8 And it shall be in that day, 

that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem

half of them toward the former sea, 

and half of them toward the hinder sea: 

in summer and in winter shall it be.

9 And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: 

in that day shall there be one Lord, 

and his name one.


John 3:5

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.


John 4:14

King James Version

14 But whosoever drinketh of the water 

that I shall give him 

shall never thirst; 

but the water that I shall give him 

shall be in him a well of water 

springing up into everlasting life.


John 7:38-39

King James Version

38 He that believeth on me, 

as the scripture hath said, 

out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

which they that believe on him should receive

for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; 

because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: 

and that Rock was Christ.

16 They shall hunger no more, 

neither thirst any more

neither shall the sun light on them, 

nor any heat.

shall feed them, 

and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters

and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.


Revelation 21:6

King James Version

6 And he said unto me, 

It is done. 

I am Alpha and Omega, 

the beginning and the end. 

I will give unto him that is athirst 

of the fountain of the water of life freely.


Revelation 22:1

King James Version

22 And he shewed me a pure river 

of water of life, 

clear as crystal, 

proceeding out of the throne of God 

and of the Lamb.


No wonder, the LORD can breathe life into a valley of dry bones.

BUILDING a HOME for GOD

 

1 Kings 6:1

King James Version

6 And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year 

after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, 

in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, 

in the month Zif, which is the second month, 

that he began to build the house of the Lord.


I'm a simple person.

I'm just focused on God.

As such, the home I built for Him in my heart is predictably simple.

This home I built for God -- through the guidance of the Holy Spirit -- consists of 30 stones.

Those stones are my 30 blogs.

The one you're on now, is the 31st stone -- my 31st blog.

That is the corner stone -- JESUS.

Psalm 118:22

King James Version

22 The stone which the builders refused 

is become the head stone of the corner.


JESUS is the head stone of my home, which is offered for GOD's GLORY.

Thus, my home is strong, sure, and steady.

This is now my go-to blog, which links all 30 other blogs.

If you were to read Ed F. Vallowe's "Keys to Scripture Numerics", you'll find what the corresponding numbers stand for:

30 = THE BLOOD OF CHRIST -- DEDICATION

That, I have.

I am dedicated to the Word of God.


31 = OFFSPRING

Amazingly so, for this 31st blog is the offspring, after 30 other blogs.

Jesus is the SON of God -- His offspring.


All those previous blogs were foundation, the stones HOLY SPIRIT and I used to build my knowledge on GOD.

I had no idea we were building, a stone at a time.

Until now.

Each stone (blog), was carefully selected, lovingly nurtured, perfectly fitted together.

ALL the stones came from Spirit.

They didn't know the touch of earth.

Everything was built, in SPIRIT.

1 Kings 6:7

King James Version

7 And the house, 

when it was in building, 

was built of stone made ready 

before it was brought thither: 

so that there was neither hammer nor axe 

nor any tool of iron heard in the house

while it was in building.


Because I'm born again, it's the only way to build a home for JESUS.

Holy Spirit and I laid down the 30 stones.

JESUS laid down the 31st stone, to complete our construction.

He blessed my home, with His presence.

Now, my home is complete.

The LORD can reside in my home now.

In fact, my home, is His.

Matthew 21:42

King James Version

42 Jesus saith unto them, 

Did ye never read in the scriptures, 

The stone which the builders rejected, 

the same is become the head of the corner: 

this is the Lord's doing, 

and it is marvellous in our eyes?


And our foundation is built upon a rock.

Luke 6:48

King James Version

48 He is like a man which built an house, 

and digged deep, 

and laid the foundation on a rock

and when the flood arose, 

the stream beat vehemently upon that house, 

and could not shake it: 

for it was founded upon a rock.


And that ROCK is CHRIST.

1 Corinthians 10:4

King James Version

4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: 

for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: 

and that Rock was Christ.


Now, the Lord and I can sup together, in my simple, but beautiful home.

Built purposely for the LORD.

Strong, as the will of heaven.

John 14:23

King James Version

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

If a man love me, 

he will keep my words: 

and my Father will love him, 

and we will come unto him, 

and make our abode with him.
