Series: Let the River Flow

Slide 1: Series: Let the river flow!

• The Introduction to this series: I received the idea for this message during my spiritual retreat at IHOP – it just hit me during my prayer time and listening to the group sing about Healing Waters!

• I honestly feel in my heart that Christian Hills Church is to become a place which flows with God’s healing waters!

Slide 2: Video Clip: From Blue Fish Tv called “Water”

• The symbolism of water.

Slide 3: The Biblical symbolism of “Water”

• The Bible uses the symbolism of water repeatedly to make the point about spiritual life giving water which comes only from Jesus and Father God.

• This healing water is designed by God to bring life and healing to the nations and to the people of the world.

• This symbolism is attached to water which is representative of the Holy Spirit.

Slide 4: John 7:37-39 “Jesus has it!”

• 37…Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” 39By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive…

John 7:37-44: 37On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.

• To drink this water you must go to Jesus!

• 38Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

• Those who believe in Jesus go to Him and he hands them living water, this water enters them and then begins to flow out from within to others around them.

• 39By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

40On hearing his words, some of the people said, “Surely this man is the Prophet.”

• This symbolism of water is a direct link to the Holy Spirit and His empowerment spoken about in Acts chapter 2. The Spirit is a flowing river of life bringing healing and everlasting life to those who drink of it.

John 4:10: 10Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

• Once again to receive this life giving water requires you to ask Jesus for it.

• To get the water of life we have to go to Jesus – because he has it, he possess it, he creates it, and He wants to give it to you and remember it is attached to the Holy Spirit – this water is a symbolism of the Holy Spirit!

Slide 5: Revelation 21:6 “It cost nothing”

• 6He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.”

• We all know how much we have to pay for good water today, good water costs. Jesus is offering us the purest and the most enriched water because it has healing and life altering properties.

• Yet it cost us nothing!
