Come and Drink!

From: Trees Planted by the Water

Trees planted by streams-Grow&bear fruit even in old age-Signs of the Lord’s Faithfulness

==>Because they DRINK from-Jesus-the Living Word-Fountain of Life –Ps1:1-3;Jere17:8-9;Ps92:13-15

 

After pondering the above trees, the Lord gave me a song and some more very encouraging scripture – hopefully you’ll be encouraged too!

Psalm 36:7-9 NASB
7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
8 They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
9 For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.

Revelation 22:17 AMP
17 The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost.

Come and drink
Come and drink
From the fountain of life

Come and drink
Come and drink
From the river of delight

Come and drink
Come and drink
From Jesus the living word

The Spirit and the Bride say
Come

The Spirit and the Bride say
Drink

Won’t you come
Won’t you drink
Won’t you answer the call?

This prompted me to look up the cross references to Revelation 22:17 – the call to drink. I found the below scriptures. It was as if the Lord said the answer to His call to drink, is to first surrender to Jesus as Lord and then receive and accept the blessing. The blessing is to continually DRINK and follow Jesus, the Lambs, lead.

Isaiah 55:1 AMP
1 Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing].

Revelation 7:17 AMP
17 For the Lamb Who is in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and He will guide them to the springs of the waters of life; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

This next verse really spoke to and encouraged me …

Revelation 21:6 AMP
6 And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.
