Need strength? Draw upon the Living Water

Image source: The Chosen, woman at the well scene

“Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water,” (John 4:10).

We are living in evil times, and life in general can be exhausting. More than ever, I find myself praying and standing on the Word of God where He promises to be our Living Water.

Through reading the Word and allowing the Holy Spirit to speak to me as I do, I believe that “Well” must be drawn upon BY FAITH and by praying in the Spirit (tongues, prayer language whichever you prefer to call it).

I’m deeply moved by the woman at the well and her encounter with Jesus, her awaited Savior. Truly, He has been Living Water that has kept me in a world filled with trouble and tribulation (and my encounters with not so nice human beings).

Let’s get to the best part of my posts, the Word who is Jesus (John 1:1)…

Romans 8:11 says, “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”

Need to draw upon this well? By faith, thank Him right now for the Living Water that dwells in you to flow to every cell and fiber of your being to give strength to your mortal body.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh. So beautiful, Lord, Your Holy Spirit is that Well of Living Water You’ve gifted Your sons and daughter with.

Don’t know if you’re a son or daughter of God the Father? Check out this post.

Isaiah 58:11 says, “The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul [mind, will, emotions, conscience] in drought, and strengthen your bones [your physical body all the way through]; You shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”

[My emphasis in brackets] Isaiah, the prophet prophesying of the Living Water that was to come and has come and is available to those who believe.

“And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes,” (Ezekiel 47:9).

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water,” (John 7:38)

This Living Water IN us can bring healing TO us and our mortal bodies and to those around us. Only believe!

And check out this treasure…

“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you COMPLETELY; and may your WHOLE spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

Wow, Lord! Because of the Living Water of Your Holy Spirit, we can be COMPLETELY sanctified – our whole body, soul, and spirit. Your Living Water indeed can touch and heal our physical bodies (Romans 8:11, etc.)

How awesome is God! His Holy Spirit is the best Teacher ever, bringing the Word together FOR US as we diligently seek Him in His Word and in prayer.

And guess what, child of God? His Living Water isn’t intended to strengthen you alone. You are called by God to bring His Living Water to others around you.

Because of this post the Lord reminded me of another beautiful one He gave me called, “Carriers Of The Kingdom of God (Boy Do His Children Complicate What He Made Simple)”

Here’s a short excerpt from it…

“As carriers of the Kingdom of God wherever we go, His rivers of living water also go. And what did He say happens when the kingdom of God, inside us, is near? People are healed and set free.

And wherever we, “the rivers,” go and do what we are called to do, there will be a “great multitude of fish.” Those we’ve caught for the kingdom of God.”

Faith, Holy Spirit, Spirit led

Faith is a SUBTANTIAL substance and so very precious to God

source: another blog about Jesus

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” (Hebrews 11:1).

In the recent past when meditating on Hebrews 11:1, I heard the Lord say, “Faith is a substance,” and I said, “Wow! Lord,” and He showed me how when true faith is released it can be seen as having a SUBSTANCE because of its foundation or what it stands on: His Word (which is SUBSTANTIAL).

So powerful, Lord! I love You, so much!

But I didn’t make this other absolutely beautiful and amazing revelatory connection by His Spirit until last night when I once again read and pondered Hebrews 11:1.

I pray you also see this post as a message on how much God loves you, child of God. Oh so much! How much He treasures you and cares about everything concerning you (which is why any lies that cause His children to be prayerless and believe it’s pointless to pray REALLY grieve me like in this post).

This is a beautiful and amazing revelation, the Lord showed me last night…

Our Abba Father can SEE our faith when it’s released.

Let me say it again because it’s so powerful, but for you…

God can see YOUR faith when you release it. In the spirit realm, He can see your faith mix with His Word and your prayers.

Your faith is a tangible and precious thing in God’s kingdom.

Oh Papa God, how You break me with Your beauty in the very best ways of course.

This is the verse He brought to my remembrance as He was showing me the additional way our faith is a substance…

“Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints,” (Revelations 5:8).

So precious to God that in the spirit realm our prayers take on the form of fragrant and beloved incense which He stores in golden bowls in heaven.

I can’t even, Lord. You can SEE our faith. *weeping*

I’ve never seen a Hebrews 11:1 – Revelations 5:8 connection before regarding the magnitude of our faith to God – how powerful, precious, and important our faith is to Him and of course our prayers.

His Word makes it clear faith is extremely important to Him, but this word opened it up for me on a whole other level. How tangible and real faith is in the kingdom of God and why He has SO much to say about faith. Glory to You, alone!

Honestly, faith is how His kingdom runs lest anyone boast.

“Let my prayer be set before You as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice,” (Psalm 141:2). Very prophetic words David penned by inspiration.

Here are some verses about faith for life and health to you. To renew your mind with His Word, the truth…

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith,” (Romans 1:17).

“This is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith,” (1 John 5:4).

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him,” (Hebrews 11:6). IMPOSSIBLE! That one word says so much regarding His kingdom laws and ways regarding faith.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,” (Ephesians 2:8).

“And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven,” (James 5:15).

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord,” (James 1:5-7).

On the surface verse 7 of James 1:5-7 may seem harsh, but I believe He purposely set up His kingdom laws this way – to run on faith – so no one could boast in their works but in Jesus instead who finished the work of the Father.

Answers to prayer are not earned but all by grace through faith. What a Good Father!

And His Word is the provision He made available for all His children to have great mountain moving faith and to crush unbelief:

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,” (Romans 10:17).

Child of God, your faith is a SUBSTANTIAL and precious substance to God. I pray this post inspires your prayer life for every prayer is precious to God. He cares about everything concerning you.

End Times Church, Faith, Healing

I HATE everything about you!

Of course, I’m talking about SIN. Why? First, because God hates sin, and we are to hate what God hates.

“You who love the Lord, hate evil!
He preserves the souls of His saints;
He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked,” (Psalm 97:10).

“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way
And the perverse mouth I hate,” (Proverbs 8:13).

Second, the original sin was THE door that opened and unleashed every form of death and destruction into the earth – sickness (physical and spiritual infirmities), murder, sins against children and the unborn, corruption and decay, evil, hatred, a way for the devil and demons to work and operate in the earth, etc.

He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For THIS purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might DESTROY the works of the devil,” (1 John 3:8).

An important aside on this second point is needed. I get DEEPLY grieved when I hear people saying their sickness is a blessing or God made them or their child sick. Lie from the pit of hell!!!

This is a religious mindset (like that of the Pharisees that Jesus constantly rebuked) which wrongly conveys that God requires them to serve some sort of penance of sickness because their righteousness in Him is somehow not enough.

Lord Jesus, that Your people RUN AS FAST AS THEY CAN from churches teaching them these lies about sickness. Sickness You willingly offered Yourself up for and paid for in full FOR them.

And some sickness is literally caused by demons. Commons sense: Sickness. Is. Not. A. Blessing.

Hold me back, Lord! Hold me back! Help me keep it kind. We don’t praise and glorify sickness. We glorify Jesus who ransomed His body FOR us to heal us from it.

We’ve already shined the truth of His Word about this in the verses above. The Word is clear: Sickness entered the world because of SIN, ALL sin is of the devil, and Jesus came to DESTROY the works of the devil.

We can then validly say using 1 John 3:8 once again, “For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy sickness because it’s a work of the devil.”

His Word makes the author of sickness and the Author of healing clear:

“The thief [the devil] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly,” (John 10:10).

Back to hating the heck out of sin and everything that came into the earth because of it…

I was praying this prayer and talking to the Lord and found myself FUMING at the devil and the evil works which abound more than ever. Then, I got a strong sense in my spirit about how ANGRY the Lord is about the enemy using these COVID vaccines to steal, kill, and destroy people – people He considers to be His image bearers. Though, those who’ve taken them are seen as foolish by Him, He’s more angry at the devil about it than anyone.

Next, He reminded me of a book I read months ago, Vessels of Fire & Glory by Mario Murillo. I could literally see the page flash in my mind, and I knew exactly where to search and find it by His Spirit. Glory to God!

This is what He wanted to me see and talk with Him about some more…

Excerpt from Vessels of Fire & Glory by Mario Murillo

I’m so humbled and in tears over this word I writing for you now in obedience to the Lord because lately, the Holy Spirit has been ministering to me on this subject SO strongly.

One April 23, 2021, I posted, I’m going up fighting, Lord, after the Lord had been mistering it to my heart. We are NOT to give up on the sick, lost, etc. just because Jesus is coming soon! Messages like those are not of God, not of His heart, love, character, mercy, and compassion, and not in line with “Occupy until I come,” (Luke 19:13).

The Lord is calling you to offer yourself up as a living sacrifice – okay that power of God (manifest glory) just hit me when I typed that – so that You are overcome with His love and compassion for the sick and those captive by satan in sin, etc. So that you also have a holy rage for the works of the devil just as Jesus does.

That like Him, you burn to see those works destroyed in people’s lives and bodies for the saving and setting free of the lost and those bound by infirmities (physical and spiritual).

I believe He’s raising up an army of believers who’ll take Him for His Word in simple, childlike faith, who love like Him AND hate, even utterly despise sin and every work of the devil in the earth, and who burn with His mercy, love, and compassion towards the sick, prematurely dying, and captive (by sin, sickness, drugs, additions, demons), etc.

P.S. Not hate and destroy people of course, but the WORKS of the devil through ministering the truth of His Word to others and spiritual warfare (prayer).
