I want to send you an invitation for 2014.
“Come. Let the thirsty one come, anyone who wants to; let him come and drink the Water of Life without charge.”
The invitation is to come to “A river of pure Water of Life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and the Lamb. On each side of the river grew Trees of Life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month; the leaves are to be used for the healing of the nations. Rev v 1-2 and v 16.
No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. (Revelation 22:3 NLT)
The river speaks of the Holy Spirit. God the Father sent the Holy Spirit after Jesus rose from the dead. The Holy Spirit is symbolised by the river that flows from heaven to earth. If one seeks to drink from this river one’s life will never be the same.
Isaiah 55 says “Come to the waters and you who have no money, come buy and eat.
Seek The Lord while he may be found, call on him while he is near.”
Jesus said “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. (John 15:4, 7, 8 NKJV)
I started to put this word into practice sincerely twenty four years ago. Abide means to obey, follow or agree to. I wanted to bear fruit. I began to read the Word of God for fifteen minutes each day and meditated on it. I wanted to know more of the truth. Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life”in John 14 v 6
I prayed for fifteen minutes as well. I prayed in my own language but also in the language the Holy Spirit gave me. The fruit grew.
The Holy Spirit gave me the power to have my children, to rear them, to be healed of cancer and continue to live.
2 Timothy 1 v 7 says God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind.
How precious is your constant love, O God. All humanity takes refuge in the shadow of your wings. You feed them with blessings from your own table and let them drink from your rivers of delight.
