Living Water

I've really enjoyed God as living water as revealed in the book of Isaiah. According to John 4:14b, this actually covers the entire Bible. Below are some of the outline points from two messages that really explain the depth and riches of this matter.

Points from the Crystallization-study of Isaiah:
Message Two - The Revelation of the Lord Jehovah, the Eternal God

The Lord Jehovah has become the divine water. In the book of Isaiah God considers that He is our salvation as living water. To be our salvation, the Triune God was processed to become the life-giving Spirit as the living water, the water of life.

In totality, what Christ is and has accomplished is just the divine water, which is the consummated Spirit as the consummation of the Triune God for us to drink and enjoy.

Message Eight - Drawing Water with Rejoicing from the Springs of Salvation

God's intention in His economy is to be the fountain, the source, of living waters to dispense Himself into HIs chosen people for their satisfaction and enjoyment.

We need to know the difference between the words fountain and springs. The fountain is the source, the springs are the issue of the source, and the river is the flow.

The Triune God, while unfathomably profound, is also very simple. The Father is the hidden source, the Son is the spring, and the Spirit is the flow. What God wants from us, in order to fulfill His eternal purpose, is simply that we drink Him as this water. One of the best ways to do this is by calling on the name of the Lord.
