Do you know where is the source of water of life? [WMSCOG]
Water of life is an essential spiritual element that provides life to all humankind
suffering from spiritual thirst. Water is an essential substance for all living things on Earth,
including plants, to sustain life. Although the human body varies according to age,
it is usually made up of 50-80% water. If our body loses 1-2% of its water we feel extremely thirsty.
A deficiency of 5-10% can lead to a coma and a loss of 12% can result in death.
It is not an exaggeration to say that water is life itself.
This logic also applies to our souls. The life of a soul also needs the water of life.
If there is no water of life, our souls cannot help but die due to severe thirst.
What does the Bible say about the water of life?
The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord,
“when I will send a famine through the land—
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.
People will stagger from sea to sea
and wander from north to east,
searching for the word of the Lord,
but they will not find it.
the lovely young women and strong young men
will faint because of thirst.
The water of life that our souls need is none other than the Word of God.
The prophet Amos prophesies that in this age, all souls will feel extremely thirsty
because they are unable to obtain the water of life, which is the truth of God.
Where can we receive the water of life that is directly related to our salvation?
God is the source of the water of life.However in each age God appeared in a different form
and with a different name and gave the water of life.
In the age of the Father, the prophet Jeremiah who spoke on behalf of God;
His will and regulations for forty years, revealed that the source of the water of life is Jehovah.
Lord, you are the hope of Israel;
all who forsake you will be put to shame.
Those who turn away from you will be written in the dust
because they have forsaken the Lord,
the spring of living water.
Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed;
save me and I will be saved,
for you are the one I praise.
He explained that leaving Jehovah God would be written in the dust.
In other words, it means there is no salvation. The reason the forefathers of faith,
in the Age of the Father, such as Moses, David, and Solomon were able to receive salvation was
because they praised and obeyed God Jehovah, who is the source of the water of life,
and obeyed His words.
How about the age of the son?
The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman.
How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink,
you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep.
Where can you get this living water?
Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself,
as did also his sons and his livestock?”
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water
I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
This is a conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan woman 2000 years ago.
The water that leads to eternal life, in which a person will never be thirsty, was given by Jesus,
the Savior in the Age of the Son. It means that Jesus is the source of the water of life.
During Jesus’ three-year public ministry, Jesus taught the Jews the truth ofl life that leads
to eternal life (Matthew 28:20).
The apostles of the Early Church not only listened to the words of Jesus and kept them
but also preached to the Gentiles. It was because the words of Jesus were the only way
to save souls who were dying of spiritual thirst.
Now is the age of the Holy Spirit. In this age which we live in, it is important to know
who the source of the water of life is. The apostle John saw the Savior who gives the water of life
in the age of the Holy Spirit through a revelation.
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!”
Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift
of the water of life.
In this day and age humankind is struggling from spiritual thirst and the only way for them
to be saved is to drink the water of life given by the Spirit and the Bride.
Who are the Spirit and the Bride who give the water of life?
The Spirit is God of the Trinity, and indicates Christ, that is God the Father,
who comes to the earth in the age of the Holy Spirit.
Then, who is the ‘Bride’ who gives the water of life together with God the Father, who is the Spirit?
A person cannot receive the water of life without knowing the One who gives the water of life,
so a person needs to definitely know who the Bride is. The apostle John saw the Bride of the Spirit
coming down out of Heaven through a revelation.
One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came
and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”
And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high,
and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.
The Apostle John said that the Bride of the Lamb, God the Father, was the city Jerusalem,
which came down from Heaven. This is not referring to the ruined Temple in Israel, Palestine.
Then who is the Heavenly Jerusalem, the bride, who gives the water of life?
But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
The apostle Paul testified that Heavenly Jerusalem is ‘our mother.’
The word ‘our’ in this verse are the ‘saints who are to receive salvation.’
Therefore, the Bride, who gives the water of life is God our Mother.
The fact that the Spirit and the Bride give the water of life together means that
in order to receive the water of life to maintain the life of our souls in this age,
we must go to God the Mother together with God the Father.
In the Old Testament times, the prophet Zechariah prophesied that living water will flow out
from Jerusalem to the whole world in all seasons (Zechariah 14:8). That is, in the last days,
it tells us that God the Mother, who is the reality of the New Jerusalem,
will grant the water of life.
The prophet Ezekiel prophesied that the water of life given by God the Mother
would flow to the whole world, and all nations would be healed, and the peoples
from all nations would return to the truth (Ezekiel 47:1-7).
Next, is the introduction of the great effects of the water of life.
The prophet Ezekiel explained that wherever the water of life flows all creatures that were dying
will live and the sea will become fresh (Ezekiel 47:8-12).
In the Bible, the sea refers to the world (Revelation 17:15).
In other words, it represents that humankind throughout the world, who were dying from
spiritual famine and drought, will live through God’s water of life.
Also, Ezekiel prophesied that there is a tree of life that bears fruit every month by the river
where the water of life flows, and that the leaves of the tree is medicine for the healing of humankind
that is dying. This is exactly in line with the prophecy in the book of Revelation.
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the
city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding i
ts fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.down
the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life,
bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree
are for the healing of the nations.
The source of the water of life means God the Mother, who is the Heavenly Jerusalem
as God and the throne of the Lamb (Jeremiah 3:17).
The Old and New Testaments of the Bible consistently testify about Jerusalem,
God the Mother, who gives the water of life.
According to this prophecy, God the Mother has come into the world and is crying out,
“Come to receive the water of life.” Only those who respond to this cry will have their souls refreshed.
In addition, they will be able to receive true happiness and comfort from Mother (Isaiah 66:13).
