Fresh Water or Sea Water

The fresh waters of the Word carry the life of God Himself upon them and impart His life in the same way.

“Does a fountain send forth [simultaneously] from the same opening fresh water and bitter? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine figs? Neither can a salt spring furnish fresh water.” James 3:11-12

When I used to read these passages above, I used to think that the use of profanity was the bitter or salt waters that it was talking about, but while profanity is definitely not good, that’s not what is being addressed by this passage at all.

Last night I kept hearing the Holy Spirit echoing through my mind and heart, “DANIEL, MY PEOPLE SOUND TOO MUCH LIKE THE WORLD! THEIR WELLS ARE FILLED WITH SEAWATER INSTEAD OF FRESH WATER!”

The moment I Awakened this morning I began to inquire what He meant by that, and what I received was what I’m going to write below:

The two different kinds of Water Represent two different kinds of communication. The Fresh Water is the Pure Waters of the Word Himself:

“Let us all come forward and draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance and absolute conviction engendered by faith, HAVING OUR HEARTS SPRINKLED AND PURIFIED FROM A GUILTY (evil) CONSCIENCE AND OUR BODIES CLEANSED WITH PURE WATER.” Hebrews 10:22

The Pure Waters from the Holy Spirit are brought forth as if they came straight from the mouth of the Lord and into the hearts of the listeners. The Fresh Waters of the Word carry the life of God Himself upon them and impart His Life in the Same Way.

The Sea Waters are undrinkable and Proceed from the Sea of the World itself. Anyone who’s ever tried to drink seawater knows, that if you drink enough of it, it will cause nausea and vomiting. This Sea Water carries death upon its waves, so that everyone who hears it, hears only death, destruction, and fear. 

The kind of speech which comes forth from the Salty Waters of the Seas of the world, cannot build up or edify its listeners, only drain them of the Life of God which comes forth from only the Word Himself!

Right now the Waters coming from many Christians are filled with the Sea Water, as they have allowed the waters of the world to contaminate their wells! The influence of the Sea itself, (the sea representing groups of people), has caused many to bring forth waters that are undrinkable and even bitter.

Don’t allow the Bitter Waters and Salt Waters of the world around you to contaminate the waters of Life upon the inside of you! FILL THE WELL OF YOUR INNERSPRING WITH THE FRESH WATERS OF GOD’S LIFE AND HIS POWER WHICH COME FORTH FROM THE WORD, so that when the world hears you they only hear and experience the Words of Life, instead of the death permeating the atmosphere! 

You are A Message from the Lord today, but what Is your Message Saying?
