There are no coincidences with the God of all creation. The God of scripture controls all things, He is ether sovereign ruler over everything that is, or you cannot call him GOD! So it is of no coincidence, that water is used as a vital picture in God’s word. Water plays a very important part in all living things. Even our own survival depends on water! Have you ever thought about how everything that seems to be living, dies in a drought! Plant life, animal life, even human life withers away when there is no water. The human body can go an average of 21 days without the consumption of nutrients found in food, contrast that with this point, the human body can on only go without water, for about 3 to 4 days. Throughout scripture, water is used as a picture of God’s word going out into the world, a picture of God’s gospel being preached, a picture of the story of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED.
The text says, “If thou knewest”, that’s the question. Do you know who it is that speaks through his written word? Do you know this one who is the incarnate God? Do you know this one who paid the price of sin for all of whom the father hath given him? Do you know this one who sits on his throne, ruling over all that is? Do you know this one, who comes to his elect, when they are dead in trespasses sin, raising them from spiritual deadness? Do you know this one who is rich in mercy? Do you know this one who quickens (gives life) to his people? Do you know this one who is the author, and finisher, of your faith?
IF SO? THEN YOU HAVE TASTED THE WATERS OF LIFE IT SELF!
CHRIST JESUS THE LORD
Our Lord asked Peter, who do you say that I am? Peter answered, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. CHRIST answered, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
