Streams of Living Water

When I accepted Jesus and was baptized I receive the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. I now have the perception that the Spirit is somewhat confined in my body, but ministering to me and through me. It’s not really registered with me that the Spirit has such a free-flowing character; one that is not based on my decision to measure and pour out the Spirit. On the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles Jesus stood up and spoke in the temple courts and said, “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified” (John 7:38-39 NIV).

Gail;

-----“There are three witnesses, the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has borne witness to his Son. He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself.” (I John 5:8-10) Jesus Christ came by the water and the blood (vs. 6.) It’s all a bit mysterious. There’s a lot of water and blood in the birthing thing. The spirit is there, too. And, of course, the Spirit is always everywhere. Then again, Jesus came in the flesh. This was a big deal to John, “By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already.” (I John 4:2-3) Then, Jesus was baptized in water, after which the Spirit descended upon Him. So there again we see Him coming by blood (a flesh necessity,) water, and Spirit. Or, does it mean that by His blood spilt at Calvary we are given access to the Father through baptism in water, after which the Holy Spirit dwells within us? And why can this testimony of God not be in all three? We are a people who love a good 3-in-1 deal.
-----So. Let’s top it with a fourth. Let’s look at it really metaphorically. There are three witnesses. One is water -inanimate matter. One is blood -animate matter. The third is the Spirit -not at all material. Water is essential to life. Life is in the blood, “…the life of every creature is the blood of it.” (Lev 17:14.) This is why the pretext of abortion, the “viable tissue mass” fraud, is a lie before God; before the forming baby even has a brain it already has its OWN blood, that is, its own life. Blood is mostly water with such a highly patterned arrangement of other chemicals that it forms functioning cells. You can take the exact quantity of other chemicals composing blood and blend them into a properly proportionate amount of water for making blood, but you will only have made slurry, kind of a thin mud. For life does not require just the presence of all necessary molecules in the water. It requires them all arranged and working together for mutual benefit. Such pattern is one aspect of spirit: meaning. The proper arrangement and action of all the molecules together means life. Isn’t God cool!?!
-----Moreover, all the blood of the world bears witness. All mankind, the entire amassment of these bloody creatures together have been and are completing His-story. The more one studies history, the more one sees God’s hand in it -the purpose of it. And not only mankind’s blood, but all blood testifies. In order for any bloody critter to survive, it must kill and eat something else. In order for us to survive death, Christ must be killed and eaten. Then the pattern which makes all things perpetuate in good and benefit for all, Spirit, can begin happening. But, what about the testimony of the water? Where’s that?

-----Even the inanimate shouts forth the story of Christ! “The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” (Ps 19:1-4a) “Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made.” (Rom 1:20) “Can you lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or can you guide the Bear with its children? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule on the earth?” (Job 38:32-33) Many are surprised, sometimes perplexed, and even somewhat dismayed to learn that “Mazzaroth” is the Hebrew term for Zodiac.
-----The Mazzaroth was not developed for astrology. It was given to man by God as a sign of Christ’s saving work. Like Satan twists all the rest of God’s righteousness into his own lies, he has twisted the message of God’s stars, which God named, into his own demonic purposes. But that has only happened in pin-head minds. Out there in the realm of real reality, the Mazzaroth is still the Mazzaroth: the Gospel. And minds willing to reason with facts and information towards the framework of God’s Word can clearly see the Gospel in the stars.
-----We are not entering the age of Aquarius for whatever fool concept the astrologer can vomit forth. We are entering the age of Aquarius because the kingdom of earth is very close to becoming “…the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign for ever and ever.” (Rev 11:15b) Who cares what the Tarot card says. The stars say Christ pours the stream of living water into the mouth His fish. And very soon all His fish will live in that stream of water doing good to one another always and only in an organized pattern of mutual benefit just like the chemicals in the water of blood do. And we all shall live in joy and peace and righteousness (Rom 14:17) in His Spirit on earth for a thousand years to finally finish the story His-story is speaking forth to all creatures God made everywhere, anywhere, whenever. Then this garbage can creation will be dumped into the fires of Gahanna, and He will create a new, perfect heaven and earth for our eternal bliss. Isn’t God cool!?!
