DRINK MORE WATER
“He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.” Joel 2:23
Rain is the water of life. Water, is the very essence of ALL creation. The body, the earth, all living things, have been proven to be made mostly out of water.
Allow me introduce you to Masaru Emoto,
Masaru Emoto (born July 22, 1943) is a Japanese author and entrepreneur, known for his studies that if human speech or thoughts are directed at water droplets before they are frozen, images of the resulting water crystals will be “beautiful” or “ugly” depending upon whether the words or thoughts spoken were positive or negative. Emoto has documented that these results can be achieved through prayer, music or even by attaching written words to a container of water.
Since 1999 Emoto has published several volumes of a work entitled Messages from Water, which contain photographs of water crystals next to essays and “words of intent.”
Emoto’s water crystal experiments, consist of exposing water in glasses to different words, pictures, or music, and then freezing and examining the aesthetics of the resulting crystals with microscopic photography. He has studied, and found that negative words will result in the water crystals being ugly, misshapen and cruel. When the water is spoken to with praise and kindness, the crystals result in beautiful formations. Dr. Emoto has realized through his 20 years of studying water and photographing it, when you speak to water- it responds.
RAIN, RAIN, RAIN
Our Pastor said something very interesting and powerful a few months ago. He brought up this scripture, “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through dry places seeking rest and does not find it. ” Matt 12:43 He went on to state, that when he has studied demonic activity, he has found that the activity is the greatest near bodies of water, and as the scripture indicates, they can find no ‘rest’ in dry places. Why is this so? It is in my understanding that water promotes travel, and travel… well travel spreads the Word.
Whether we travel on it, drink it to survive, bathe in it, or grow our crops by it, we cannot live without it.
I believe that today’s message is one to encourage us all the be refreshed! To DRINK, DRINK, DRINK, to receive the rain that the Lord has provided for us! Here is Joel 2:23 in The Message Version,
“Children of Zion, celebrate! Be glad in your God. He’s giving you a teacher to train you how to live right. Teaching, like rain out of heaven, showers of WORDS to refresh and nourish your soul, just as he used to do. And plenty of food for your body—silos full of grain, casks of wine and barrels of olive oil.”
Those of us who are dried out, are not a threat to the enemy, because the enemy has already won! What use is a pitcher to a thirsty man, least it have water in it? How much good are we as Christian’s to the sick, afflicted, poor, and unsaved man, if we have no Word to pour into him? When we are dried out, we are like that pitcher… EMPTY!
Oh my dear friends. You don’t need to bring upon yourself desertion in order to avoid the enemy, what you need is MORE WATER! While the enemy searches out the spiritually fed to overcome, he CANNOT overcome those who KNOW they have the power within to cast him down!
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Cor. 10:15
Anything that comes at you, (imaginations) that try and exalt themselves against the knowledge (what you know of God), needs to be cast down. We can only know what these things are by reading His Word. As we read His Word we become refreshed. Our body has scientifically been proven to be anywhere between 55-75% water!
Dr. Emoto has proven through his studies that water, will even respond to thought and the written word!
So what are you thinking, what are you reading? How is the nearly 75% of you being affected? Are you thinking, reading, and listening to things that will build up your Faith? Do you feel the pressure of the enemy… daily? If so… JOB WELL DONE! Keep at the work of resisting, because after all, if you are wiling to stand forever you won’t have to stand for long!
If you feel dried out, at the end, and in pain and suffering… could it possibly be that the last kind word you spoke, or was spoken to… is just a distant memory?
CHRIST IS THE WATER WE ARE TO DRINK
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:12
A prayer for today,
“Father God, I pray today, that Your people would be refreshed! That their desire for You, would be to drink, drink, drink! That they would feel the IMMEDIATE and pleasing sensation of water in their souls, filing them, and that their spirits would begin rejoicing in the same way a child does in a bath! Oh Lord! That they would be giddy from the MUCH NEEDED RAIN OF THEIR SPIRITS! And that you would fill them sooo full, that ANY dart of the enemy would DROWN in their abundance of water! Fill them OH Lord! And show them that the ‘secret’ to remaining filled, is to put Your Word.. YOUR Son, into their hearts and minds.” In Your Sons name- AMEN!”
“Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.” John 2:8-10
May the Lord Bless you today and continue to QUENCH your soul!
