Enough sprinkles, enough drips, drops. I WANT RAIN!!!
Bring the deluge of God’s Presence!!!
Jesus was teaching in the temple, exhorting his followers and saying, “I will be with you “a little while longer, and I go to Him who sent Me,” in John 7:33-39.
The crowd grew concerned and began to question, where is He going that we won’t be able to find him!
Then the next thing Jesus says took place during one of the Jewish Feast. He stood in the middle of crowd and exclaimed,
“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.”
If anyone is thirsty, let him go to Jesus and drink!
If anyone is deading, wilting, suffering from the empty wells of this world. The lack of satisfaction and fulfillment the world, money, greed, lust and pride of life.
“For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life…” – 1 John 2:6
If anyone ANYONE feels robbed of peace, happiness and joy, meaning and significance. If ANYONE feels burdened with guilt and shame of a life of bad choices, wrong company, and a sins that weigh you down, sins that hold you hostage, like an shackles about ones arms and feet!!
You’ve lost love, you’ve lost joy, you haven’t experienced true peace in ages and your future looks hopeless:
Jesus is saying, “Come to ME and DRINK.”
God told the people of Judah,
“Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” -Isaiah 1:18
No matter what you’ve done, or how dark, dirty and stained you are, Jesus will make you clean, refreshed and BRAND NEW!!
“So if the Son -Jesus- sets you free, you are truly free!” –John 8:36NLT
All we have to do “confess our sins –to Him, and He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Confess your sins, your wrongdoings to God, believe Jesus died and rose from the dead for our atonement, and YOU ARE SAVED! THAT’S ALL!! -Romans10:9
Watch Jesus and his Spirit-the Holy Spirit- give you indescribable peace. As you feed on His scriptures, you will find God’s love, God’s power filling up every area of your life until all of YOUR THIRST is QUENCHED. To God Be the Glory!
But there is icing as well.
Jesus went on to say,
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:33-39)
Living water that is fresh and clean, but also satisfying to the soul. Because this water is LIVING it satisfies forever! It is an endless spring of life that carry on into eternity. “…that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16. And Jesus went on in to say in John 7, that this river of living water is referring to the baptism of the Holy Ghost (John 7:39 If you haven’t received the infilling and baptism of the Holy Spirit, get it! For it will empower you to live the “abundant life” by Christ Jesus. (John10:10)
When Jesus said out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. Yes it is a continual stream.
His Holy Spirit will comfort our hearts daily. -John 14:26
His presence will strengthen our joy. -Ps. 16:11
His joy will be our strength. -Neh. 8:18
His love will encourage our souls. -John 3:16-17
When Jesus said, he who believes in me out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. Know that God love can not be contained. It is uncontainable, immeasurable, and extends above the heavens (Ps. 108:4). Only Jesus can satisfy a thirsty soul and only His Spirit can yield the continual flow of this limitless, unending and satisfying WATER!
Why not try Jesus.
I receive Jesus as Lord of my life. I confess my sins. I believe that
he died and rose again, and now I am born again,
brand new! (John 3:3) May the well of your Spirit continue
to flow out of my life into the lives of others. In Jesus’ name.
