THE GIFT OF GOD-LIVING WATER

INTRODUCTION: ZACHARIAH (THE LORD REMEMBERS), A MINOR PROPHET AND PRIEST WROTE AROUND 520 B.C. HE WAS AMONG THOSE WHO RETURNED TO JUDAH AFTER THE BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY. HE ENCOURAGED THE JEWS TO OBEY GOD AND NOT SIN. MUCH OF HIS CONTENT REFLECTS MESSIANIC PREDICTIONS OF CHRIST.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: ZECHARIAH 14:8 (NKJV) AND IN THAT DAY IT SHALL BE THAT LIVING WATERS SHALL FLOW FROM JERUSALEM, HALF OF THEM TOWARD THE EASTERN SEA AND HALF OF THEM TOWARD THE WESTERN SEA; IN BOTH SUMMER AND WINTER IT SHALL OCCUR.

THIS PROPHETIC UTTERANCE SPEAKS FUTURISTICALLY TO THE ADVENT OF JESUS CHRIST. PONDER CHRIST’S ENCOUNTER WITH A SAMARITAN WOMAN AT JACOB’S WELL. JOHN 4:10 (THE BOOK-A PARAPHRASE) IF YOU ONLY KNEW THE GIFT GOD HAS FOR YOU AND WHO I AM, YOU WOULD ASK ME, AND I WOULD GIVE YOU LIVING WATER. CHRIST DECLARED TO HER HE WAS THE SOURCE OF LIVING WATER SPOKEN OF BY ZECHARIAH.

READ JOHN 7: 37-38. THIS ALLUDES TO VARIOUS PASSAGES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT REGARDING LIVING WATER. THE SOURCE OF LIVING WATER, CHRIST, WILL BE SUFFICIENT FOR ALL WHO PARTAKE. THE LIVING WATER IS UNIVERSALLY ABUNDANT IF YOU COME TO THE SOURCE, JESUS CHRIST.

REVELATION 22:17 (NKJV) AND THE SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE SAY, COME! AND LET HIM WHO HEARS SAY, COME! AND LET HIM WHO THIRST COME. WHOEVER DESIRES LET HIM TAKE THE WATER OF LIFE FREELY. CHRIST’S CALL IS UNIVERSAL.

APPLICATION: PSALMS 36:9 (NKJV) FOR WITH YOU IS THE FOUNTAIN OF LIFE; IN YOUR LIGHT, WE SEE LIGHT.
