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.
(John 4:23)

In the study of the presentation on "True Worship" on this website, it was said, "According to the Word of the LORD, the reason many receive not the everlasting gospel of God is because, they having eyes to see, they see not, and they having ears to hear, they hear not, neither do they understand. For 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." The question is...

"Why are the churches not receiving The Things
GOD wants to reveal by HIS Word?"

In seeking an answer to the question above, as to why our churches are not receiving The Things GOD wants to reveal to us by HIS Word, we understand that it is because they have forsaken The LORD and HIS Word to follow after error. And HE will not bless a rebellious heart, by pouring out The Latter Rain to those, who forsake HIM to follow after error, to serve and swear by strange gods, which are no gods. For Jesus has revealed to those, who follow Him that it is given to us to know The Mystery of The Kingdom of GOD, but unto those, who are without, who forsake Him, all The Things He did were done in parables that they having not eyes to see, they might see, and not perceive The Truth; and hearing they may hear with their ears, and not understand The Truth, because they know not The Truth, and neither do they execute judgment to seek after The Truth, lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins of a rebellious heart should be forgiven them.

Through Jeremiah, The Word of The LORD said, "Hath a nation changed [their] gods, which [are] yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for [that which] doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD. 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. [Is] Israel a servant? [is] he a homeborn [slave]? why is he spoiled?" (Jeremiah 2:11-14)

If we have been converted in our hearts, to turn from a rebellious heart to fear The LORD and to exalt HIM by HIS Word, then HE has said HE will pardon, and we shall be forgiven of our sins. It is in having a converted heart that the true worshippers of GOD will worship The Father in Spirit and in Truth that HE might pour out to us both The Former and The Latter Rain by HIS Word, Who is The Fountain of Living Waters. To illustrate to us how this is done, it is written and poured out to us of HIS Word through His servant John, who said, "He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee. And he must needs go through Samaria. Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about the sixth hour" (John 4:3-6). For those, who have eyes to see, notice that Jesus, Who is The Fountain of Living Waters was sitting on a fountain, or a cisterns, which held only natural water.

Like the woman at The Living Well, John with The Word of reconciliation in his heart; he was given a vision of an angel with a message to be presented to every person dwelling on the earth. He testified and said, "...I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters" (Revelation 14:6,7)." And from this message, we know that it is an important message to be given to every person on the earth. However, as it was stated in the study on the presentation of "True Worship" on this website....

"The gospel is good news. It is news that is everlasting, i.e., it has always been and will always be good news for those who dwell on the earth. However, unless the people on earth can receive the everlasting good news of God, they cannot glorify HIM, neither can they worship HIM. Yet, John testified that he saw in a vision an angel fly in the midst of heaven with a message to be preached with a loud voice to every nation, kindred, tongue and people, saying, "fear God, and give glory to HIM; for the hour of HIS Judgment is come, and worship Him that made heaven and earth, and the sea and the fountains of waters". In this message, there is found good news. But no one on earth can receive this good news; neither can they understand why it is good news, because they cannot hear it. Even though the message is being repeated today, to almost every nation, kindred, tongue and people, it is still not being heard by even those who are presenting it, because they do not yet understand the message."

The hour is come to understand the message.

The everlasting gospel to be preached
with a loud voice for every person to hear.
(1). To Fear GOD
(2). Give glory to HIM
(3). For the hour of HIS Judgment is come
(4). Worship Him that made heaven, and
      earth and the sea, and the fountains of
      waters
Is GOD'S Voice being heard by HIS Word
through those, who drink of HIS Word?
(1). To say let us fear the LORD our GOD
(2). To give Glory to GOD by HIS Word
(3). To execute Judgment to seek Truth
(4). To worship in Spirit and in Truth
      Him that made heaven, and earth and
      the sea, and the fountains of waters?

We have looked at these points drawn from The Living Water, Who
springs up in those, who draw and drink from Him--The Living Well.

GOD'S Word has revealed to us why His people are without The Power of both The Former and The Latter Rain. For they are without understanding, because they are rebellious in heart, and they are bent on backsliding from HIM. For there is found among them wicked men with evil hearts of unbelief, who set snares to trap and catch men as birds. "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love [to have it] so..." (Jeremiah 5:31). They have "set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face." "They are all estranged from me through their idols." Through His servant Isaiah, The Word of The LORD said, "Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near [me] with their mouth, with their lips do honour me, but have their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men" (Isaiah 29:13). "Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season..." (Jeremiah 5:24).

GOD'S Word has revealed to us why His people do not give HIM Glory, because they do not understand and know HIM, as The LORD, WHO exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth. For HE "looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God"(Psalms 14:2). They have forsaken HIM, and sworn by them that are no gods. The Word said, "my people have changed their glory for [that which] doth not profit...they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, [and] hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water" (Jeremiah 2:11, 13).

GOD'S Word has revealed to us HIS Judgment through His servant Jeremiah. For HE said by HIS Word to him, saying, "Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be [any] that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth" (Jeremiah 5:1). Yet, through His servant John, The Word of The LORD is revealed to us as The Judgment of GOD, to lead us all into The Knowledge of The Truth. For The Word said of The Father through John, saying, "For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life" (John 5:22-24).

GOD'S Word has revealed to us how HE has made not only the heavens and the earth, but by HIS Word, HE has made those, who believe on HIS Word to be, not a broken cistern that can hold no water, but to be of Him The Fountain of Living Waters. For The Living Well has said, "...If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet [given]; because that Jesus was not yet glorified)" (John 7:37-39). And Jesus was not yet glorified, because many of His Own people did not believe in Him that He might be glorified in them. But for those, who believed and received of Him, He prayed to The Father and said, "...I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 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 17:8-10). He is The Fountain of Living Waters that flows out from The Father to the hearts of those, who will receive Him through those, who believe on Him; that The Father might speak HIS Word of Truth to many hearts, which are thirsty for HIS Word of Truth in and through those, who believe on HIS Word.

It is in understanding The Truth that we give Glory to GOD in sending to us HIS Son--The Word--The Fountain of Living Waters. For The Spring of The Fountain of Living Waters flowed through John, and he said, "We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. [And] we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen" (1 John 5:18-21).

As it was said through John, Jesus has brought to their hearts an understanding of The Truth, and through them, The Fountain of Living Waters has flowed to us that we also might come to know The Truth and abide in The Truth. But there are many statements that are misunderstood and made to support error, because men do not know The Truth. And because they read the words with their eyes, they do not see with the eye of faith, to understand The Truth of GOD, and receive the message of GOD'S Word to their hearts. By not having eyes to see, or the eye of faith to guide them, they become blind, to lead the blind to follow error, to give not Glory to GOD, or to HIS Word, Whom HE has sent as The Rain to prosper in them. It is therefore important that we understand What Jesus taught His disciples that every person in the world might be blessed of GOD to prosper and to worship HIM in Spirit and in Truth, to fulfill the third angel's message, according to Revelation 14. But to do this we must understand the message. For some have walked away so far from GOD into darkness that they would have to receive this message to their hearts again and again, to understand how far they have departed and walked away from GOD and HIS Word.

Jesus knows how many dwellings there are in His Father's Tabernacle, because He is The One, Who builds The True Tabernacle of The Living GOD. It is He, Who prepares our hearts to receive The Father, WHO sent Him to prosper in us. In The same way, He has sent His messengers before Him, and works through them to prepare the people to receive Him before seeing His face. He said to His disciples, "...whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:4-6). Jesus has revealed to His disciples that He was going to The Father. He made it clear that no man can come to The Father, but by Him. This answer that is given to His disciples is The foundation that establishes The True worshippers that shall worship The Father in Spirit and in Truth, which will lead to The Father. If Christ is The Only Way that man can come to The Father, then any teaching that proclaims other ways to come to GOD, the presenters of this teaching are building on a false foundation, and are not building on The Truth of GOD'S Word. For Jesus is The Only One, Who can lead us to The Father, because "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [him]" (John 1:18).

Although Christ is The Only Door to The Father, He however has many doors, gates and posts through which men might come to receive knowledge of Him. But it is through Him and Him alone that we come to receive Knowledge of The Father. For it is through the witness of these doors throughout the Scriptures that we come to know The Word of GOD as The Only Begotten Son of GOD. Their witness is not viewed as hearsay, because many of The Old Testament prophets of The Scriptures would tell us that The Word of The LORD came to them, revealing to them directly what The LORD had revealed through Him to their hearts. And in The New Testament, The Word presented to us His Testimony and witness through those, who walked with Him, and had seen Him and talked with Him during His ministry on the earth. The witnesses of The Word were not the SOURCE of The Testimony to our hearts. They were not the second witness to receive The Word, Who came to them with The Words from The Father. Yet, it was through them that The Word spoke to the hearts of the people, to reveal GOD'S Will to men. They were the third messengers in line to receive the message given of GOD by HIS Word through them to His church. When we receive The Word of GOD, we become third in line to be His messengers, to give the message from GOD'S Word through our lips to the world. Christ speaks through us, as The Father speaks through Him, to give and reveal HIS Will to the hearts of men.

As The Only Door and Way to The Father, Jesus stood before His disciples, to open to them The Door to The Spiritual Sanctuary of those, who will hear and receive The Father by their faith in Him. In order for us to enter this Spiritual Sanctuary, to be partakers with Christ and those, who received GOD'S Word, to worship The Father in Spirit and in Truth, to follow HIS Word as The Only Way to HIM, WHO sent Him, Jesus said to them, "If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him" (John 14:7).

We cannot know The Father without receiving and knowing HIS Son, Whom HE has sent to prosper in us to do HIS Will. As GOD sent Levi with the message of HIS Word to speak through his lips to the priest, who had departed from The Way, HE sent HIS Son--The Word of The LORD, to take the form of flesh, and to not only speak to men HIS Thoughts, but to Represent HIM before men in the form of flesh. As we look to Jesus Christ, we not only receive through Him The Father's Words, and see HIS Glory of Mercy, Love and Grace in Christ, but as we behold Him daily, and receive HIS Word in our hearts, we can by His Power in us become more and more like Him, to reveal HIM and HIS Word in us and through us to the hearts of men. It is only by faith that the disciples could see The Father and hear HIM speak to them through and by HIS Word in the form of flesh as we are. To His disciples, Jesus said, "from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him"

As The Door of The Spiritual Sanctuary was opened to the disciples to see and hear The Father through The Son, they were to understand that from that opening to their understanding, they were to see and hear The Father speaking to them through HIS Word. For HE--The Father was there with them in The Tabernacle--The Dwelling Place of HIS Son.

As it was said of The Father by HIS Word through His servant David, that "The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God" (Psalms 14:2). He also said through him, "God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were [any] that did understand, that did seek God" (Psalms 53:2). With David's understanding of The LORD and HIS Word, he said, "I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. Thy way, O God, [is] in the sanctuary: who [is so] great a God as [our] God? Thou [art] the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people" (Psalms 77:12-14). By coming to earth to dwell among the members of His Sanctuary, Christ Testified to the woman, who came to The Living Well, and He said of The Father; "...God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24).

It is in The Sanctuary and dwelling Place of HIS Word that The LORD has reveal by HIS Word The Things that many find hard to understand. And for many The Things of GOD are a Mystery to their understanding, because they stand outside of The Sanctuary that reveals The Things of GOD. Yet it was through the heart of His servant Luke, who testified that The LORD was speaking by HIS Word when "...he turned him unto [his] disciples, and said privately, Blessed [are] the eyes which see the things that ye see: For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard [them]" (Luke 10:21-24). And through Paul The Word also Testified of GOD and said, "...to us [there is but] one God, the Father, of whom [are] all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom [are] all things, and we by him. Howbeit [there is] not in every man that knowledge..." (1 Corinthians 8:6, 7).

The Father has declared to The Sanctuary members of Christ that they are blessed, because of What they have seen and heard of HIM through HIS Word. But for many, who stand outside of The Sanctuary of Christ, The Things of GOD remain a Mystery to them, because they do not spend time with GOD, to receive HIS Word in The Sanctuary of their hearts, to learn of HIS Way and of HIS Word of Truth. But John testified of Christ and said, "He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure [unto him]. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:31-36).

As The Father has Testified of HIS Son, and has given to Him all things, and of The Fullness of HIS Spirit, John, who received The Truth of GOD from Christ, he testified of Him, Who prayed to The Father, WHO sent Him to reveal The Truth to men. In His prayer, Jesus said, "...Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 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 17:1-10).

As Paul said, not every man have The True Knowledge of The ONE GOD and The One Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus has declared in His prayer to The Father that He has Manifested The Father's NAME to those, whom HE The Father has given Him, or to those, who have received Him. John, who received Him and The True Knowledge of The Father and The Son; he was blessed of GOD to receive a vision of those, who had This Knowledge of GOD'S NAME written in their foreheads. He said, "...I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty [and] four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, [being] the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God" (Revelation 14:1-5).

Notice that in John's vision of The Lamb with the hundred and forty and four thousand, who followed The Lamb wherever He goes, they sang a song that no one could sing but they. The song has much to do with The Father's Name written in their foreheads. For A VOICE was heard from heaven. But That VOICE was as The Voice of Many Waters. And The Voice of Many Waters was as the voice of a great thunder. John said he heard The Voice of harpers harping with their harps. And according to the song, which David sang, he said, "Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm" (Psalms 98:5). The harpers are the hundred and forty and four thousand; all singing the Same Song from The ONE Voice through many waters. They sung as it were a new song before the throne. The Song appeared to be a new song, because only they had learned the song, which is written in their foreheads, and has much to do with The Father's NAME, Which Christ has revealed to those, Who received Him, as The Fountain of Living Waters, Who is glorified in those, who received Him and believe in Him.

As one who believe in The Living Well, John sang His song and said, "...we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen" (1 John 5:19-21).
