Stagnant water can be brackish, polluted and make us sick. If an obstacle blocks the flow, the fresh, pure water is unable to flow from the Source. The key to keep flowing with new, living water is to keep connected to the Source!
How do you connect with the Source? How do you know if you are rightly related to the absolute Source of all life? You use a guide who has been there, conquered it all, and has experienced the darkest depths as well as the furthest reaches of the height, breadth, and length without breaking connection with the Source. Only Jesus has come from the Source and returned to be one with the Source while remaining consciously connected and unwavering. Only Christ Jesus has been able to live a perfect life, conquer all temptations of the world, and overcome evil, death, and the devil. He is the only one who has died, resurrected and ascended back to perfect oneness with God, and sent their Spirit back to incarnate all believers.
The way to connect to the Source of the river of the water of Life is through Jesus, the visible manifestation of the invisible God. No one can see God, but all can potentially see Jesus. The ascended Christ can be experienced, felt, touched, heard, smelled, tasted and seen. The river can be felt; the sweetness can be experienced. The light can be seen; the Love can be experienced. Those connected to the Source through the visible presence of God can flow with the river of Spirit, blessing all who they encounter.
“May the God of peace himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound” 1 Thess 5:23
Believe Jesus; receive the river of living water from the Source; flow like a fountain; be transformed and transfigured; and become an outlet for the Source to touch the world and her inhabitants. Receive the Holy Spirit which gives you all the fullness of God and let it flow out of your heart to bless the world. The river of living water is the river of the Spirit of the ascended Christ and his Source who are one.
Come to Jesus and drink of the Spirit of the glorified Christ. The ascended Jesus is alive and active in all those who believe what he said and receive his Spirit. Stay rightly related to the Source and all you touch will be blessed with the river of living water. Receive of God’s fullness, however small the visible measure of our lives, and out of us will flow the river to bless the uttermost parts of the earth (Oswald Chambers). God is in charge of the outflow. We are in charge of receiving and not blocking the inflow from the Source!
Never put your attention or focus on the obstacles or difficulties. The obstacle is nothing to the river; just keep in touch with the Source and the river will get around the obstacle! The key is to keep right at the Source; believe; receive; flow, and be identified with Jesus! If we are not flowing, we are to blame, never God. All is given and complete; our job is to connect and receive! Be rightly related to the visible Christ Jesus and you will be rightly related to the invisible Source!
Remove all things that hinder your belief in what Jesus taught. Come and see as Jesus sees. Holy Spirit opens our spiritual senses to hear as Jesus heard his Father, love as Christ loves and open our mouths to be filled with the Spirit to speak the Words of healing, restoration and power. Only the Holy Spirit can open our perception to see who Jesus is. Our nature has to transfigured to be poured out; our perception changed to become a blessing to others.
Deliberately give yourself body, soul and spirit to be transformed, transfigured and changed to be perfectly one with God. “I am His and He is carrying out His enterprise through me” (Oswald Chambers). See the higher perspective and the deeper meaning of things through Jesus’ eyes. Receive power to transform into CJ’s nature. Flow with his Spirit, being filled with all the fullness of God.
Jesus proclaimed, “If any one thirst, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the scriptures has said, ‘Out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.’ Now this he said about the Spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive; for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified” John 7:37-39
