Water is by far the most important element of life. All things on this earth from the birds in the sky, to the fish in the ocean, to the animals and human beings on the ground, and even plants require water in order to survive. Water brings relief in times of diasters, or it can cause diasters. It has the power to cleanse and purify. Water brings forth life, but without it there is no life. We can say that water is the source of life.
But it says in Romans 1:20 - (For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.) Through the things God created we can see about God's divine nature. Thinking about how important physical water is, we can see how important is the spiritual water God wants to give us.
(John 4:13 - Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.") 2000 years ago Jesus said that he gave living water, water that leads to eternal life. In order to recieve the gift of eternal life we must recieve this water. But after Christ death a spiritual famine soon started. (Amos 8:11 -"The days are coming," declares the Sovereign LORD, "when I will send a famine through the land-not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD. Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it. "In that day the lovely young women and strong young men will faint because of thirst.) God said that the days are coming when there will be a famine, but not a physical famine of food and water but a spiritual famine of hearing the words of the Lord. This is important to us because God also said that the words he has spoken are spirit and they are life (John 6:63). After Christ died the words of eternal life that Jesus gave to us were changed (Daniel 7:25) and hence brought forth this spiritual famine.
But in the last days we are able to hear the words of the Lord again (Micah 4:1 - In the last days the mountain of the LORD's temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.) In the last days the word of the Lord can be heard again, but it is coming from Jerusalem. In Revelations which is about the last days Jerusalem is coming down out of heaven (Rev. 21:9). Then what is this Jerusalem that is in heaven coming down in the last days speaking the words of the Lord?
(Galations 4:26 - But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our Mother.) Through our Mother we are able to hear the words of the Lord again and we are able to recieve the water of life once again saving us from this spiritual famine. (Zechariah 14:8 - On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter.) All thanks and praise to our Heavenly Mother who has saved us in these last days!
