Living Water

I was reading a book recently on the subject of health. Specifically, it was about the effects that holistic salt and pure water has on our bodies. But what struck me even more were some of the results of the testing they did on unprocessed water.

They spoke in the book about "living water." This water was qualified as "living" because it hadn't been processed in any way and still contained it's natural vibrations and it's molecules were still composed in a very strong structure, so as to be of the most benefit to our bodies. This water has the ability to give us energy in and of itself because it's own energy has not been stripped away by processing or so-called purification. In addition, this water is said to hydrate our bodies and satisfy our thirst much better.

This is all interesting, but it got me to thinking about the Messiah as our "living water." How often do we try to fill our lives with bits and pieces of Messiah, a "processed" form of Him through what religions say He is, instead of the real thing? That's like trying to fully satisfy our thirst with water that has had all the naturally occurring energy removed. It is a temporary fix because it has no lasting effect. Messiah, as our "living water," quenches our thirst permanently, but we must accept the whole of Him. This means we accept His loving nature, but also His judgments. When we are found to have sin in our lives, we must put it far from us. He is a God of love, but He is also a just God. Only when we allow Him to permeate EVERY aspect of our lives can He fully sanctify us. We accept the Father and the Spirit, the WHOLE being of our Creator God.

There was one other thing that really struck me in this book about water. Did you know that water has a memory? If you freeze a water drop into a crystal, it forms into a snowflake. If you allow that same water drop to thaw and then refreeze it, it will form into the EXACT same snowflake. That in itself is an amazing fact, but this is even more amazing. That same water molecule can be destroyed or repaired simply through words being spoken to it. Really. One scientist studied the effect our words have on water. When negative words were spoken to that same molecule, the molecule broke down and mutated. Then, when he spoke positive words to the water molecule, even if it had been greatly damaged, it could repair itself (in some cases fully). Considering that the majority of our bodies are made up of water, imagine the effect our words have on a body containing many water molecules that are either being built up or torn down. Physical proof that the Scriptures speak truth!

Jesus truly is our "Living Water." He can repair even the most broken down pieces of our lives. I just found this fascinating; it's symbolic on so many levels and really brought a deeper understanding of some Scriptures to light.

"Yeshua answered her, "If you knew God's gift, that is, who it is saying to you, 'Give me a drink of water,' then you would have asked him; and he would have given you living water." She said to him, "Sir, you don't have a bucket, and the well is deep; so where do you get this 'living water'? You aren't greater than our father Ya..akov, are you? He gave us this well and drank from it, and so did his sons and his cattle." Yeshua answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I will give him will never be thirsty again! On the contrary, the water I give him will become a spring of water inside him, welling up into eternal life!" --John 4:10-14

"Whoever puts his trust in me, as the Scripture says, rivers of living water will flow from his inmost being!" --John 7:38
