All the rivers flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full. To the place where the rivers flow, there they flow again. Ecclesiastes 1:7.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Forgiveness flows continually. It was obtained legally once for all on the cross but it is an eternal redemption that is ever new and ever renewing in each heart, ever flowing, never ending, grace on top of grace. It is there for all from the beginning but it washes anew in the early and latter rain for each generation.
There is from Me a continuous cycle of love, forgiveness, blessing, and favor, all found in Jesus from the foundation of the world and never to cease throughout eternity. All there already but always new.
Let Me show you in the water cycle I have put in the earth.
You may think every drop of rain falling from the sky, or each glass of water you drink, is brand new, but it has always been there, and is a part of the wonderful water cycle I put into the earth. You have to understand that, just like the life I prepared for you in advance I put everything you need for your life and godliness in the earth when I made it in the six days of creation. When all was completed I took My rest and everything that was made was there ready for all generations to use and find. It comes from the elements and the combinations thereof, the seed that reproduces and replenishes, and from the cycles and recycles I put in the earth.
That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one might say, “See this, it is new”? Already it has existed for ages which were before us. Ecclesiastes 1:9-10.
Today let us look at water. Water is essential for life on earth. You cannot live without it, both physically and spiritually, for there is physical water and there is spiritual water, just as there is physical food and there is spiritual food.
You are not just an earthly body, you are a spirit being with a soul who is living in the earthly vehicle of a body. When you are raised up on the Last Day you will receive the spiritual in place of the physical, that is the heavenly body. And it will happen in the twinkling of an eye as you are caught up in the clouds by the Sun (Son) of Righteousness. Think about this as you consider the water cycle I put in the earth.
So let us look today at the water cycle, first physical then spiritual. At its most basic, the water cycle is how water continuously moves from the ground to the atmosphere and back again. As it moves through this cycle, it changes forms. Water naturally exists in three states on earth – solid, liquid, and gas. And I use all three as I will. Remember the parting of the Red Sea? That was a matter of moving and packing molecules of water to congeal into a solid or flow as a liquid. And that is how you can speak to a mountain and get it to flow into the sea.
Most of the total global water is in the ocean, about ninety-six percent, and there is a reason for that since I planned for there to be billions of people on the earth who all need water. So let us start with the ocean because that is where I started creation as My Spirit hovered over the waters and I made the atmosphere (raqia (רָקִיעַ), the dome that surrounds the earth so you can breathe and live, in which the clouds form and the winds blow, where you see blue sky—the first of the three heavens) and then the dry land.
When I made the sun, I put the sun at just the right distance, and I keep it there in its proper place and the earth in its proper orbit at the distance I commanded, so that energy from the sun causes water on the surface of the sea to evaporate into water vapor, which is a gas, so you do not see it. This invisible vapor rises into the atmosphere, where the air is colder, and condenses into clouds. Think about your spirit and soul going up as you leave your earthly body behind to be clothed in your heavenly body.
Air currents move these clouds all around the earth. I send angels out to the four winds. When the droplets of water are big enough they fall as rain, falling upon the ocean or upon the land as precipitation, and, if upon the land, they then run off into a lake or river where you can draw water for many uses and even harness the flow for power, where life grows like fish and other creatures that make water their home and the water not consumed flows back to the ocean where the process starts again. If the droplets fall as snow, the snow will fall to the ground, and eventually melt back into a liquid and run off into a lake or river, which flows back into the ocean, where it starts the process again.
So you see the same water is made salty, cleansed and renews in the ocean, until drawn up again into the atmosphere to condense into clouds and again shower the earth with blessings that fill the lakes and rivers, water the crops, give drink and water is also used to work for you in many industrial and home uses, from as simple as washing dishes and clothes to making electrical power, and then return again to the sea to be made anew but ever the same. There is nothing that needs to be added for you, it is all there to be added to you. My supply was made never to run dry.
Every place on earth has a connection to the ocean through a river, whether underground or a huge flowing river moving tons of water great distances, like the Amazon river, visiting many places to give life. Even the highest mountains, such as the one you call Mount Everest, is connected to the sea by flowing water. All are connected to the source of the water and without water, as in the driest desert, you cannot survive. Think about the source of living water. If you are not connected to Me by My Spirit, Jesus said you were like a dry and withered branch only good as fuel for the fire.
You may be thinking that the ocean has salt water and rain is not salty. The answer is that the rain does indeed come from the ocean. But as the seawater evaporates under the hot sun, and moves up into the atmosphere as water vapor, it leaves its salts and dirt behind. It’s just like distilling water by boiling it, capturing the steam and condensing it again as a liquid.
But understand, though that is what happens with most of the water, that is just one path water can take through the water cycle. Instead of snow melting and running off into a river, it can become part of a glacier and stay there for a long, long time. Or rain can seep into the ground and become groundwater, where it’s taken up by plants. It can then transpirate to gas directly through the leaves and return to the atmosphere. Or, instead of being taken up by the plant, the groundwater can work its way up to a lake, river, spring, or even the ocean. So even plants are involved in the water cycle.
As you can see, the water cycle can be a very complicated process to you who study it, but to Me it is simple. Nothing is too hard for Me and nothing is impossible for Me, and at the word spoken in faith in line with My Word you can move things and rearrange molecules and atoms in the earth. You can change substances, like water to wine by adding carbon and hydrogen atoms, which are plentiful in the earth and its atmosphere. I have set up all things in the earth to work together for your good and supply you with all you need just when you need it.
But today those who study these things are putting fear in people saying the water may not be enough with dwindling supplies and more people using up water for various uses. But please never worry about running out of water. Take note there is more since the beginning than just the ocean. If you recall when I made the atmosphere (raqia (רָקִיעַ), which is an extended surface, expanse, firmament) it was a division of the waters below (the ocean) and the waters above (what you call outer space).
Then God said, “Let there be an expanse (raqia) in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. God called the expanse the sky. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. Genesis 1:6-7.
I am speaking here of the dome of the atmosphere. Do you remember at the flood of Noah what happened?
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened. Genesis 7:11.
And when the flood was over?
Also the fountains of the deep and the floodgates of the sky were closed, and the rain from the sky was restrained. Genesis 8:2.
It is all there, you will never run out of water. Wherever Abraham, and later Isaac and Jacob, dug for wells, they found water.
Man is studying what I do through earth’s ecosystems, but they are complex and not completely understood by him for they also must be spiritually discerned, and there are reserves they have not found for the silver and the gold are Mine waiting for the final shaking to make the latter days of My church on earth more glorious than the first. Without knowing the Maker of all it is hard to understand by just limiting yourself to the things made and not seeing beyond them to the source. I AM Yahweh Yireh, the LORD who looks ahead and provides. All you will ever need is already made and waiting for you to take it by faith. My mercies are new every morning. They are there, and if you ask you receive, if you seek you find, and if you knock I will open them to you.
He has made everything appropriate and beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, without which man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. Ecclesiastes 3:11.
Those who study the ocean have concluded that a drop of water may spend as much as 3,000 years in the ocean before evaporating into the air, while a drop of water spends an average of just nine days in the atmosphere before falling back to earth. A thousand years are as a day to Me and a day as a thousand years, but I the third day I raise you up to be with Me forever.
Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD; His going forth is prepared as the shachar (dawn); and He shall come unto us as the geshem (early rain, which is the winter rain), and as the malkosh (the latter rain, which is the spring rain) unto the earth. Hosea 6:3.
And as for your life now in these days of the latter rain—do not just stay in the ocean, let Me lead you out to lead you back in, draw you out to draw you back in.
So Jesus said to them again, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:7-10.
Think of the waves of the ocean, they go out and pull back in. Jesus called His disciples to be with Him and then He sent them out to preach, teach and heal to bring others back into Him with them, to draw others into the joy of being in Me. For out of you who are filled with My Spirit rivers of living water shall flow and all rivers return to the source from which the came, the sea.
It will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters go there and the others become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes. Ezekiel 47:9.
So too you are resting in the sea of My grace and the secret place of My love, deep beneath the storms above on the surface of the sea, but let Me draw you up with Me in the cloud of glory and then rain you down to reign on earth and make the dry land wet with showers of blessing and with rivers of life flowing out of you, and then flow back into Me on the current of the river of life and be refreshed and restored, made salty again, until I draw you back up to send you out to shower the earth with blessings. And you will be blessed as well for those who generously water others will themselves be watered.
The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered. Proverbs 11:25.
I love you. I have given you living water that is a fountain within you leaping up to eternal life and when you draw it up with joy and drink deeply of the abundance of My house, that river of delights becomes the rivers of the nine gifts of My Spirit flowing out of you to give the water of life to a world dying of thirst. Be like Rebekah at the well and be willing to draw it up for everyone who is thirsty.
