Spring Up – Spring Up O Well!

April 27, 2020

This is cool! Look at the invitation below – it’s to ALL who are thirsty – both believers and non-believers. I never noticed the invitation to believers before, it’s to keep coming to “drink”. It makes sense tho — if the “rivers of living water” are to keep flowing from those who believe=> they have to keep drinking! Also look how “bearing fruit(Revelation 22)” is related to this need to keep drinking!

Thirsty? Come with joy to drink the water of life.
=> Be refreshed, strengthened and equipped with His joy to send out the invitation to ALL those who are thirsty!

John 7:37-39 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, *let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” 39 But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
*Or let him keep coming to Me and let him keep drinking

Revelation 22:1-2,17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
1 Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. …
… 17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

Songs of Joy

Isaiah 55:11-13So will My word be which goes out of My mouth;
It will not return to Me void (useless, without result),
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
12 “For you will go out [from exile] with joy
And be led forth [by the Lord Himself] with peace;
The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
13 “Instead of the thorn bush the cypress tree will grow,
And instead of the nettle the myrtle tree will grow;
And it will be a memorial to the Lord,
For an everlasting sign [of His mercy] which will not be cut off.”

With songs of joy
Be led forth in peace
In mercy and grace

Isaiah 61:1-3 AMPC … The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,
3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

Come and Drink!

November 12, 2014

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

The Spirit and the Bride say

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.

Healing in the Song of the Lamb

January 23, 2013

Revelation 14:1-5 Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they kept themselves pure. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.

Healing in the Song of the Lamb

There is healing in the Song of the Lamb
Healing in the Song of the Lamb

From the throne by His hand it flows
From the throne where He stands it flows
Healing in the Song of the Lamb.

Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow!
From the throne healing flows

Follow the Lamb wherever He goes
Living water flows wherever He goes
From the throne it flows
Healing flows!

Dip your heart in the stream of life! Ez47:1-12;Rev22:1-5
There is healing in the Song of the Lamb
Let it flow!

Revelation 5:6     And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. 

Revelation 22:1-2     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 its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 

Revelation 7:17     For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; He will lead them to springs of living water.

Healing Leaves

May 16, 2011

Revelation 22:1-2 … 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 its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

Ezekiel 47:12Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.

Open your leaves
Be anointed with fresh oil -Ps 92:10
The leaves are for the healing of the nations. -Rev 22:1-2;Ez 47:12

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the
uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. -Ps 2:8

As the trees stand
By the river of the water of life which flows from the throne
They are nourished by God.
The living water is absorbed by the roots of the trees -Jer 17:8;Ps 1:3
The roots pass the living water along
Thru the trunk to the leaves
The leaves take the water and transform it into life{photosynthesis}.
The water mixes with the warmth of the sun
To provide food and nourishment for the tree and the world.
The leaves provide food for the tree and the world.
The leaves also provide oxygen necessary for life.
The leavesprovide healing for the nations.The leaves are key for the transformation of living water into nourishment and healing.

The leaves on the trees are like hands holding forth the word of life{fruit that remains}!
