Are you finding yourself thirsty beyond measure when it comes to life? Do you sense that there has to be more to this life than you have been led so far to discover?
Are you on a quest for such and just seem to keep coming back to where you started only to still stand empty-handed?
If so then perhaps you need to look beyond what you perceive to be limitations that you are perhaps holding on to? The call of God always lies beyond the other side of your perceived limitations.
God does not withold anything from you or I. He gave us His all when He Gave us His only begotten son, Jesus; “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence. (2Peter 1:3)
Yes, He calls us to “excellence” in and through Christ Jesus. The full potential to walk after His likeness rests within, if you have received His righteousness in place of your own. In that instance, His Spirit dwells within, therefore as He lives there, we have His Presence enveloping us, the fullness of that which fills all in all.
Jesus is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything. At the center of all this, Christ rules the body, the ecclesia, created to be in His likeness. The body, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the body. The ecclesia is Christ’s body, in which he speaks and acts, by which he fills everything with his presence. (THE FULLNESS (EXPRESSION) OF HIM WHO FILLS ALL IN ALL.)
He makes all things new. Therefore if any man be “in Christ” He is “a new creation”. Old things pass or give way to the new.
“And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.”
“These words are trustworthy and true”. He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. the Alpha and the Omega. That encompasses and covers it all and everything in between.
“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.
And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.”
“And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.”
And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.”
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.” (Revelation 22:1-21)
So if you are one who is athirst that I described at the beginning of this post, then thirst no more; come to the water that God has promised. You need not wait another moment. “These are the true words of God.” I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. “These words are trustworthy and true”.
Let me close with this; my testimony is that I have discovered that there is no human relationship or anything found in this life that can quench that “unsatiable thirst”. Anything or anyone short of Jesus will leave one remaining dry and in a constant and endless search for all eternity. All other relationships are to be formed from this primal one.
He will meet you right where you are. All you have to do is ask and invite Him; but you must ask. Believe Him. And when He meets you, then have you met the fulness of all in all, truly. There is nothing missing. He exceeds your wildest imagination and this is my testimony and I stake my life on it. Only believe His record, for with man things are impossible but with God “ALL” things are possible to they who will believe. Receive and life will never be the same.
