The Spirit and the Bride say "Come"

Have you ever thought of how important water is? Without water this world would not be what it is today, without water we nor any living creature could have life. Water is the source of life. But that is just a copy and a shadow of the spiritual, for God said 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 what God created (physically) we can understand and realize about God's divine nature (spiritually) and get an insight into God's administration for our salvation. Thinking of this fact then why did God make water the source of life here on this earth, and if through the physical we can see the spiritual, how important is the water that God gives 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." The water that God gives us (spiritually) gives us eternal life. 2000 years ago Jesus came to this earth for this very purpose, to give us the water of life (eternal life). But even though this was God's plan for salvation many people did not come to Jesus to receive the life that he wanted to give. John 5:39 - You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life. Even though all the scriptures testified about Jesus and his coming to give eternal life through many prophecies, the people of that time had there own fixed concept about God and did not come to Jesus to receive the water of life (eternal life).
We need to pay careful attention to this and learn from the mistakes of the people from that time because all the scriptures also testify that in the last days we have to come to the Spirit and the Bride to receive the water of life as well. Revelations 22:17 -
The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. In the last days the Spirit and the Bride are giving the water of life (eternal life). But 2000 years ago when Christ did this very same thing what happened? They refused to come. Jesus spoke about it in the parable of the wedding banquet. Matthew 22:1 - Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. Jesus compared the kingdom of heaven to a wedding banquet, but what do you need to have a wedding? You need a Bride! That's why in Revelations which is prophecy about the last days, the Spirit and the Bride are giving eternal life, but Jesus says in the parable that many refuse to come. I hope the whole world one day realizes about our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother and "Come" to them to have eternal life.
