The Fountain of Living Waters

The Living Well sitting on a natural well.

In the introduction On the previous page, it was said that "...many prophets and righteous men of the past have desired to see the things that were now being revealed in the fullness of time, but they saw them not, because the time of revelation was not yet full. But now the fullness of time had come and the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven were now being revealed to men, but they having eyes to see and ears to hear were not ready to receive these things." But all, who turn to The LORD with a converted heart to exalt The LORD by HIS Word, they will have eyes to see and ears to hear HIS Word of Truth, Who will pour out to us both The Former and The Latter Rain of The Living Waters of The Word of GOD. For The Word said through Isaiah, "Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it" (Isaiah 55:6-11).

The converted heart that have turned to follow The Will of The LORD and HIS Word, he will forsake and turn from his rebellious ways, and his unrighteous thoughts to return to The LORD, and to his God, and He will abundantly pardon. For HIS Thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are our ways HIS ways. To illustrate to us one of the ways of HIS Word, Who does HIS Will, The LORD spoke of the rain that comes down, and the snow from heaven that waters the earth, to make the earth bring forth and bud, that the earth might give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater. This illustration reveals how GOD'S Word goes forth from HIM to accomplish HIS Will, to prosper in the hearts of those, to whom GOD sent HIS Word. He The Word of GOD Waters the thirsty heart with The Water of Life, to make the soul bring forth and bud, or to be born again, and to give seed to The SOWER, or to become a child of GOD. He--The Word of GOD also feeds the child of GOD with The Living Bread. It is for this purpose that The Word of GOD came down from heaven to be planted in the hearts of all, who will receive Him, "...to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" (John 1:12, 13).

As The Fountain of Living Waters sat upon the well of natural waters, "There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 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. 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. 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? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 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. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

"The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am [he]. And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her? The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city, and came unto him" (John 4:7-30).

From The Testimony of The Word through His servant John, there is much to be drawn from and received in our converted hearts of The Water of Life from The Fountain of Living Waters. To be a true worshipper of GOD, we need to have eyes that can see The Truth GOD is revealing to us by HIS Living Word. We need to have Judgment to perceive The Truth GOD has revealed to us by The Fountain of HIS Living Word. For if we are full of our unrighteous thoughts, to follow our ways, we will never come to The Truth of GOD'S Word to know GOD'S Way and HIS Thoughts. For Jesus said to the woman, "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" (John 4:10).

Like the children of Israel, who were led out of Egypt by GOD working HIS Will by HIS Word through Moses, we also are being led out of darkness by GOD, WHO works HIS Will by HIS Word in and through those, who receive and follow HIS Word to do HIS Will. For Paul said, "...brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as [were] some of them...." (1 Corinthians 10:1-7).

We can become idolaters like some of the children of Israel in the wilderness, if we do not know who we are to worship. For many of them became idolaters and were overcome in the wilderness, to lust after evil things. For True worship is knowing The Truth and worshipping The True GOD, and not the false gods, which are no gods.

Do we know The Gift of GOD to us?
Do we know Who is speaking to us?

Through His servant John, The Water of Life poured out to us The Living Waters of Life, and John spoke of Him, Whom he knew and said, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:16-18). According to John's witness, The Gift of GOD is HIS Only Begotten Son, Who is Eternal Life to all, who will believe on Him.

Through His servant Paul, The Water of Life poured forth from Him and said, "(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also [is] the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, [which is] by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as [it was] by one that sinned, [so is] the gift: for the judgment [was] by one to condemnation, but the free gift [is] of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one [judgment came] upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [the free gift came] upon all men unto justification of life." (Romans 5:13-18). According to Paul's witness, The Gift of GOD is The Free Gift by one man, Jesus Christ, Who is GOD'S Gift of Grace upon all men unto justification of life.

Through His servant Paul, The Water of Life also poured forth from Him and The Father and said, "...If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? [It is] God that justifieth. Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us" (Romans 8:31-34). According to Paul's witness, if GOD delivered up HIS Son for us all, and HE is for us, how shall HE not with Him also freely give us all things? In other words, GOD works by and with HIS Word of Life, to fill us with HIS Gift of Life by HIS Word of Life, Who comes down to us like Rain, both The Former and The Latter Rain.

As an illustration to us of the cleansing Power of GOD'S Word, John the Baptist illustrated this cleansing by saying, "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and [with] fire: Whose fan [is] in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire" (Matthew 3:11, 12). As John the Baptist used water to baptize those, who came to him, he spoke of Him, Who would come after him, Who would baptize not with water, but with The Holy Ghost, or with The ONE, WHO is with Him, to freely give us all things.

We have already seen above that it is The LORD, WHO sent HIS Word like Rain and Snow from heaven to accomplish and prosper in us, to do HIS Will; for HE said by HIS Word through Isaiah, saying, "...as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it" (Isaiah 55:10, 11). And We know from the study of The Word that it is by The Word that GOD created all things. And it is through Isaiah that The LORD revealed to us the words HE spoke to HIS Son when HE said to Him, "...I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou [art] my people" (Isaiah 51:16). According to Isaiah's witness, it is made clear that The LORD speaks by HIS Word to HIS people and reveals to them that they are HIS people.

It is by HIS Word that The LORD speaks to us, and reveals to us that we are HIS people, and when HIS Word became flesh, Jesus confirmed that The Father speaks to us through Him. For John testified of Him, Who said, "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works" (John 14:10). Through Paul, The Word of GOD also accomplished HIS Will by him and said, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds" (Hebrews 1:1,2).

It is important that we know Who is speaking to us, because it is revealed by The Word to Paul that, "...all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him" (2 Corinthians 5:18-21).

If HIS people don't know HIM, then they cannot properly minister HIS Word of reconciliation, and neither can we be ambassadors for Christ to reconciled men to someone we don't know.

Through His servant Isaiah, The Word of LORD poured forth The Rain from The Father and said, "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for [that which is] not bread? and your labour for [that which] satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye [that which is] good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, [even] the sure mercies of David. Behold, I have given him [for] a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. Behold, thou shalt call a nation [that] thou knowest not, and nations [that] knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee. Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:" (Isaiah 55:1-6).

According to The Word of The LORD through His servant Isaiah, what we need to draw Water from HIS Deep Well is a thirsty soul, to come to The Waters and buy without money and without price. We can come and buy wine, milk and bread that will satisfy our souls. We must hearken diligently unto HIM to eat That, Which is Good to delight our souls. We must incline our ears to hear, and come unto HIM that our souls might live, and HE will make an everlasting covenant with us, the sure mercies of David. For HIS Word is HIS Everlasting covenant with us. Notice that The LORD has given HIS Word, a Witness to the people, a Leader and Commander to the people. When we keep His Commandments, we are keeping GOD'S Everlasting covenant with our souls. When men break His Commandments, they are breaking The Everlasting covenant between their thirsty souls and The LORD, WHO gives to all HIS Bread of Life, and The Water of Life to satisfy their souls. By turning away from GOD and HIS Word, men are laboring for that, which cannot satisfy their souls, because everything else is shallow.

For through His servant Paul, it was said of The Word of The LORD that "...it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ" (1 Corinthians 2:9-16).

Through His servant Paul, The Fountain of Living Waters has poured forth and revealed that no man knows The Deep things of GOD, but The Spirit of GOD, Which is in GOD. It is The Spirit of GOD, Who searches the deep things of God. For without Him, we cannot know, or draw from HIS WELL the things that GOD has prepared for those, who love HIM. Yet, The Fountain of Living Waters has poured forth to us His Spirit by His servant Paul, who said, "...we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual."

To confirm that no man knows The Things of GOD, but The Spirit, Who is of GOD, Jesus has poured out to us The Waters of Life through His servant Luke and said, "All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and [he] to whom the Son will reveal [him]" (Luke 10:22). If The Father is The Only ONE, WHO has knowledge of HIS Son, and The Son is The Only One, Who has knowledge of The Father, and the disciples to whom Jesus revealed The Father, then the word he as supplied by the translators of The Scriptures is pointing, not to a particular person, but to a plural meaning of the word he, meaning "whosoever". For Jesus said through His servant John, saying, "Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you" (John 15:14-16).

He--The Fountain of Living Waters, is The Well by Whom we receive Knowledge of The Father. He was not speaking only to John when He revealed The Things of The Father to him, but to those, whom He ordained, to bring forth fruit by being connected to Him, as The Vine that is connected to The Father, WHO is The SOURCE of all Things, to provide to them all their needs. The word "he" can be singular, or plural, just as the word "ye", or "you" can be directed to a particular person, or to more than one person. Jesus said to them, "whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you"

Do the enticing words of man's wisdom make men great in the eyes of GOD and man? Through His servant Jeremiah, The Fountain of Living Waters poured forth to us The Thoughts of The LORD. He revealed of HIM and said, "Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise [man] glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty [man] glory in his might, let not the rich [man] glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I [am] the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these [things] I delight, saith the LORD" (Jeremiah 9:23, 24). If we have drawn from The Fountain of Living Waters, then we shall give glory to Him, Who exercises The lovingkindness, The Judgment, and Righteousness of The Father in the earth, that we might have Knowledge of HIM, to bring delight and glory unto HIM, WHO sent HIS Word. For Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am [he]. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me" (John 13:16-20).

When we receive those, whom He has sent, then we receive Him, Who sent them.
And if we receive Him, Who sent them, then we have received also HIM, WHO sent Him.

For those, who can discern The Truth, The question to answer is this,
Who's Spirit have we received?

Speaking to us of The Water of Life, Who came to him from The Father above, Ezekiel testified to us of The LORD, WHO spoke to him by HIS Word, and said to him, "Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them? Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols; That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn [yourselves] from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations. For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the LORD will answer him by myself" (Ezekiel 14:3-7).

Notice that GOD, by HIS Living Word through the witnesses, whom He was sent, has revealed to us of The Deep Things no man have seen, or heard of HIM, but HE has revealed to us The Rain of HIS SPIRIT. Yet, many have set up their idols in their hearts as a stumbling block of their iniquity, to separate their hearts in turning away from The LORD, and going against HIS Word. The Word of The LORD has already revealed to us that His people were bent on backsliding from HIM, to have an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God to turn to the gods of their unrighteous thoughts, which are no gods. It is only the empty and thirsty vessels that are able to draw Living Water from The Living Well to them, to give The Water of Life to those vessels, who are also empty and thirsty. But those, who are full of self, they cannot receive The Water of Life from The Living Well, because they are as broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

Through His witness Timothy, who was sent in Christ Name, The LORD has revealed by HIS Word and said, "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth" (2 Timothy 3:1-7).

If men today are not giving The Glory to The LORD, WHO sent HIS Word as Rain, to accomplish HIS Will in us, to prosper in our hearts to know HIM, WHO sent HIS Word to reveal The Deep things HE has prepared for all, who love HIM, then they that eat of His Bread with Him have lifted up their heels against Him, by not worshipping The True GOD, but are giving HIS Glory to the false gods, which are no gods. For they are ever learning, but are not coming to The Knowledge of The Truth of GOD and HIS Word, Whom HE has sent in us. And if they have not received The Truth of HIS Word, then they have not received The ONE WHO sent HIS Word to them as The Rain, to reveal HIS Will. By denying The Power of GOD'S Word, they are like vessels that can hold no water, to thirst again, because they can never be filled to overflowing. But, as Jesus said to the woman, "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. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw" (John 4:14, 15).

Notice that The Water of Life does not change to a different source. If Jesus is The Fountain of Living Waters, Who flows as a Spring of Water in and through those, who have received Him, and He is The Water of Life from The Father, WHO sent Him as The Rain to those, who thirst after Righteousness, then He is The One in us, Who flows as a Spring of Living Water to those, who will received Him through us. He is The Well, Who springs up in us unto Everlasting Life. It is His Righteousness that works in us to do The Will of The Father to HIS Glory. But this is not what many, who receive and believe not HIS Word, are proclaiming in the world today. They are not giving GOD the Glory, because they believe not in HIS Word. It is to this hour that Jesus has revealed to the woman that "the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father" To the woman He said, "Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship."

The World is filled with many, who claim to worship GOD. They claim to have received HIS Word of Life, Who revealed to men The Truth, yet through His servant Matthew, The Water of Life has revealed that "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men. And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" (Matthew 15:8-14).

Through the vessel of HIS Word, The LORD has revealed by HIS Word through Malachi, and said, "...I [am] the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept [them]. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts...." (Malachi 3:6, 7) If GOD was displeased with Israel for not keeping in the heart HIS Covenant of Life, to be a blessing of GOD to all nations, then why would leading men of our day teach the people to follow a teaching, which GOD could never give backing by HIS Word? For GOD does not change, because HE is PERFECT, Yet, many are worshipping The LORD in vain, and teaching for doctrines the commandments of men, who are seen as being blind leaders leading the blind into a ditch, when GOD has given to them HIS Word. And if they are not being planted by The LORD, and are Watered by HIS Word, then The Word of The LORD has revealed that The LORD will root them up. For The Word of The LORD has revealed HIS Way through His servant Isaiah, saying, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them" (Isaiah 8:20).

Through His vessel John, Who was planted by The LORD in HIS Word; The Word of Life has revealed Deep things of GOD by him, and He has said, "I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing" (John 15:1-5). If the leaders of the people are leading people to follow into not keeping The Covenant of Life, as GOD has given it in HIS Word, then they are leading the people to abide not in The Vine of Life in Christ, that He might not abide in them. But as it was said, "...they be blind leaders of the blind..." Yet, GOD has revealed by HIS Word, and said, "Return unto me, and I will return unto you...", HE also said, "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon."

Through the testimony of His witness Jeremiah, The LORD has revealed HIS Word as The Fountain of Living Waters. HE has also revealed through him that HIS Word comes down to us as The Rain, both The Former and The Latter Rain. Through His servant John, The LORD has revealed by HIS Word that HIS Word is like a Well of Water springing up into Everlasting Life in those, who drink of The Same Spiritual drink received by HIS Word. The question to the leaders who lead His people away from The Water of Life, to thirst again and again without being full to overflowing; Will they repent and return to The LORD, to lead others to abide in and be planted by HIS Word? or are they willing to continue building a temple without The Corner Stone and Foundation of HIS Word abiding in them? For it is revealed by Peter and John of GOD'S Gift of Life, saying, "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, [even] by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:10-12).

The LORD has sent HIS Word through all these witnesses, and by the way of The Rain, The Fountain of Living Waters, The Well Spring unto Eternal Life in those, who received Him, to turn the hearts of men from there unrighteous thoughts and return to HIM, WHO can save by HIS Word. Jesus has testified to us through His servant John and said, "...I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him" (John 14:6,7). We cannot change GOD'S Word to follow man's ways, for there is no other way of Salvation, but The Narrow Way through GOD'S Word. The broad road can accommodate every way and ways known to man, but they will all lead to destruction, because they abide not in GOD'S Word. If men preach and teach that there is another way to GOD, or GOD speaks to men by a third Divine Being, then that preaching, or teaching denies The Power of GOD to work HIS Will by HIS Word as Rain to those, whom HE has sent by HIS Word. And if men by their false teachings deny The Power of GOD'S Word to work in and through them, then GOD'S Word cannot be in them as a Well of Water springing up in them unto Everlasting Life. As The LORD said by HIS Word through Jeremiah, "Your iniquities have turned away these [things], and your sins have withholden good [things] from you."

It is this teaching that have cause men to worship a false god in their hearts, to turn His people to worship gods, which are no gods, to sin against The True GOD, WHO blesses His people by HIS Word of Power in them, to worship HIM in Spirit and in Truth, for HE seeks such to worship HIM. We worship GOD by following HIS Word, Whom HE has sent to draw us back from error to worship The Only True GOD by Him, Whom HE has sent. For GOD'S Word will not return unto HIM void. As Jesus said, "no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Paul testified of The Power of GOD'S Word, Who work in and through him to The Glory of GOD The Father. He said, "...my speech and my preaching [was] not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory" (1 Corinthians 2:4-7).

Notice that Paul did not say he spoke The Wisdom among them that are perfect. No, he said we speak, because there was more than just his voice speaking to those, who will build their faith in The Power of GOD. He testified of The Power of GOD being demonstrated in and through him. For he said, "we have received....the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God" (1 Corinthians 2:12). That Spirit that he speaks of is The Mind of Christ, Who is as a Well of Life, and a Fountain of Living Waters to those, who will drink from His Will. For The Father speaks by Him, and He speaks to us through those, whom He has sent in His Name. As a demonstration of His Power to work The Father's Will in and through those, who have received Him, Jesus sent out seventy of His disciples to glorify His Name. He said to them, "He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven" (Luke 10:16-20). When Paul said "we", he was speaking of The Word, or The Mind of Christ, and Christ speaks to us by The Father, WHO sent Him to do HIS Will in us.

As Jesus was sitting on the physical well, and speaking to the woman at the well, although He was there with the woman alone, yet, He said "we know what we worship". Later after feeding the woman with The Water of Life and The Bread from heaven, He said to His disciples, "...I have meat to eat that ye know not of" (John 4:32). With the understanding of our connection to The Father through HIS Living Word, and HIS works done in us by HIS Word, Paul testified of HIS Word and said, "Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses [was faithful] in all his house. For this [man] was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. For every house is builded by some [man]; but he that built all things [is] God. And Moses verily [was] faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if wehold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

"Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in [their] heart; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end" (Hebrews 3:1-14).

By being filled with The Water of Life, and with The Well Spring of Water springing up in her heart unto everlasting life, the woman left her water pot and went her way into the city, and with The Word of reconciliation in her heart, she said to the men, "Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city, and came unto him" (John 4:29, 30). As an ambassador for Christ, the woman was led to proclaim Him as The Christ to the men there in the city, which caused them to come out of the city to be drawn unto Him. His Word of Power working in and through her, did not come back void. Through her testimony, The Word of GOD demonstrated The Power of GOD to draw the men of the city to hear Him for themselves. By coming to Him, they were then able to draw from The Fountain of Living Waters and be filled. Are you hearing HIS Voice to draw from Him The Water of Life, to be a demonstration of HIS Power in you? I pray that you also might hear HIS Voice that you might bear fruit unto His Glory. For Jesus said in His prayer to The Father, "I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them" (John 17:9, 10). We are not to look to some other man, or woman to do the work GOD has called us to do by The Power of HIS Word in us unto His Glory. As it was said through Paul, "...we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory" (1 Corinthians 2:7). I pray that we will all do our part, by allowing GOD to work by HIS Word of Power in us to HIS Glory. Amen.
