During the "Feast of Tabernacles" as described in the Gospel of John chapter seven verse thirty seven, my thoughts focused on Holy Spirit and what was really going on at this feast. In the last day of the feast, the most important day,(which was the eighth day and Sabbath by the way)Why was this so important for us to see? Holy Spirit impressed in me that when man's feasting is over there is still thirst. Yeshua comes at the last day of the feast to satisfy the thirst of those who seek God. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can quench the spiritual thirst of men by giving them His living water! Yeshua stood and shouted into the crowds gathering, "All you thirsty ones, come to me! Come to me and drink! (v 38) Believe in me, so that rivers of living water will burst from you; flowing from your innermost being, just like the Scripture says!" (From Ezekiel 47:1 and from Revelation 22:1) Rivers of living water will flow from his throne within and where a drink becomes a river! Verse 39 says "And He prophesied this about the Spirit, which those who believed in Him were about to take, for the Spirit was not yet poured out, because Yeshua was not yet unveiled in His full Splendor." Now get this...this splendor included the splendor of the cross, the splendor of His resurrection, and the glory of His ascension into heaven! Just as water poured from the rock that was struck by Moses, so from His pierced side living water poured out to heal, save, and bring life to all who believes. Holy Spirit was poured out of Christ and into us at Pentecost! WOW... What a Savior, What a King!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
