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!
"She's the very Tree of Life to those who embrace her. Hold her tight-and be blessed!"

When Adam & Eve sinned they were expelled from Paradise so they wouldn't eat from the Tree of Life & live forever in their sin. Then He placed a huge fiery revolving sword and stationed a angel to guard the entrance. The good news is through the victory of Yeshua at the cross and the resurrection, the angel and the sword have been removed and we are free to eat from the Tree of Life! In the spirit of wisdom and understanding we grasp that to embrace her(wisdom), there is a cleaving to that opens our heart to understand that He(Yeshua) IS the source of all wisdom. When we cleave to Him we are embracing the Tree of Life, getting back what was lost! We are the Bride, the overcomers who remember their first love, the living flames of love who
