Water’s quality for adapting as per the current surrounding temperature is very familiar to us.
70% of our Human Body gets equipped by water is what Science says, so that quality of water is somewhere there in us as well.
But with the same water we get Baptized by the Holy Spirit which gives us the privilege of being in water supernatural power to conquer our guilt, shame, fear, anger, anxiety and discouragement.
According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biology Chemistry 158.
Brain + Heart =73 %
Lungs = 83 %
Skin = 64 %
Muscles + Kidney = 79 %
Bones = 31 %
Genesis 1: 6-7 – God Divided the waters from waters.
Genesis 1: 20(a part) and 21(a part) – Living moving creatures that hath life were created Abundantly under water.
Further in Exodus 14: 21 – Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord opened up a path.
This shows the Authority to Give Life from Water.
Now, let’s turn to Genesis 7: 12 – And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
Genesis 7: 21 – And all flesh died.
Here we see God’s Authority on Water for Destruction.
God’s Plan to use Water to teach Lesson to Jonah and make him Realize and Repent
Jonah 1: 12, 17 – Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
And God forgave Jonah and bought him out.
But when we must enter in God’s Kingdom? How is water helpful
It reminds us John 3: 5 – Jesus answered, “ Very Truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.
Also, Jesus Himself got Baptized, we see in Mathew 3: 13- 17
Mathew 3 : 15 – Jesus replied, “ Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.
Jesus wanted to show us that He became a Human being and being Human being we can only enter God’s Kingdom by getting Baptized with water and the Holy Spirit.
Now, let’s ponder on Miracles of Jesus:
The First Miracle
John 2: 1 – 11 – Water turned into Wine.
John 15 : 1-5 verses.
1 – I AM the true vine, and my father is the husbandman.
2 – Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away ; and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
And this shows that same water which was used for Destruction was turned to wine i.e our Lord Jesus Christ to save us.
Claiming the stormy sea
Mathew 8 : 23- 27
We should calm the storm in us it may be Boiling Anger, Fear, Anxiety to shut down and look unto God
Walking on Water
John 6: 16 – 21
Ruling over our thoughts which may drain us beneath and discourage us like jealousy, comparing with others, Unforgiveness etc. aligning them according to God’s word.
Healing a man born Blind
John 9 : 1- 41
Here, Jesus used His saliva and spread the mud on the blind mans eyes, and told him to wash it in the pool of Siloam, this shows Inner healing by faith which is only achieved with help of believing on God’s power and his commands.
Catching a fish with Coin in its mouth
Mathew 17 : 27
Jesus made use of the Fish in Water when he had to pay the Tax, and Peter also obeyed God’s command without asking any question that how a fish would have a coin this shows complete trust on God’s word to obey him faithfully and being useful vessel in his Kingdom.
Giving one glass of water
Mathew 10 : 42
Whoever gives one glass of cold water, Jesus said that he shall in no wise loss his reward.
As we see, when we are able to give a glass of water to someone, is when we are equipped with sufficient water in us, So when we counsel others through the word of God we should be self sufficient first and then share the word of God to be rewarded.
Jesus asks water to Samaritan Woman
John 4: 7
When Jesus asks Samaritan Woman, who was so frustrated from her life, here Jesus made use of water to communicate as a Friend in Proverbs 27: 19 – 21 refers a friend is mirror reflecting one’s soul.
- Revelation 22: 1- 2
Shows how wonderfully water is present in Heaven also which you and I one day will see when Lord returns to take us.
