3 For I will pour out water on the thirsty land And streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring And My blessing on your descendants; And My blessing on your descendants;4 And they will spring up among the grass like poplars by streams of water.’
The Romans constructed aqueducts throughout their empire, to bring water from outside sources, into cities & towns. To supply water to public baths, latrines, fountains & private households, it also supported farms & gardens. Even the rulers of Roman knew it had to give it’s people water to survive, even if it helped to collect taxes from them. The Bible says the Lord will make dry places, like deserts, flowing with water. But the Sahara has existed many years & is still dry, so what does it mean? Jesus says in Matthew 5, Blessed are those who hunger & thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.;
Jesus also says in John 4, whoever drinks of the water He gives, will never thirst & the water gives eternal life;
John 4:13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
I believe in Jesus but I get thirst & my doctor says I need at least 8 cups of water a day. The water Jesus gives peace of mind & the urge to search for the meaning of life is satisfied. I live to serve the Lord & nothing else matters. Scripture says I will drown but not die in the everlasting water that Jesus provides. Everlasting life is to those who want this drink of water. Jesus is the best lifeguard, He never lets you go. God bless you, the Lord Jesus loves you & so do I. Sam H.
