Living Water …
Rev 22:17 (KJV) And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
In the physical realm, man cannot survive without water; in the spiritual world, man cannot survive without Jesus, who is “the water of life.” One must “come” to Him for life or perish. The verse imposes no limit on how often the believer may drink of Him, so drink often, child of God! To “come … take the water of life” is a metaphor for faith, and faith is putting dependence upon Christ. Notice it is the “Spirit and the bride that say, Come.” Are you part of the bride of Christ? Are you co-laboring with Him in the great Invitation?
Bro. P. and I held a 3-day revival meeting at Smith Women’s Probation Detention Center, in Claxton, GA this month. On the first night, when we arrived, there were some 30 chairs put out for the ladies. When the meeting started, there were 109 lady inmates that showed up! The next night, there were 120 inmates in the service, and on the final night, they ran out of chairs, and 20 or so ladies had to sit on the floor. Every night the altar was jam packed, and the presence of God was palpable. In all, 96 ladies got right with the Lord, confessing sins, and dedicating themselves to Christ for service.
Linda and I were part of the Mississippi Blitz at Central MS Correction Facility, in Pearl, MS this month. In all, there were 16 Rock of Ages missionaries and volunteers. We conducted 8 services over 4 nights with 505 inmates attending. We did 10.5 hours of visitation in the dormitories and in lock-down areas. There were a total of 55 men and women who made profession of faith in Christ during the revival. Many of these signed up for the 71 course PBI (Prisoner’s Bible Institute) program through Rock of Ages Ministries. This is part of our discipleship ministry for inmates. It is designed to help them grow in grace following their conversion to Christ. Linda was so blessed to be in this revival. She was able to speak to L. on death row on the final day. L. has been on death row for over 12 years. Someone led her to Christ 2 years ago. She faithfully reads her Bible, has a close relationship with the Lord, and demonstrates a sweet spirit. Please pray for dying grace for her.
