"Our Spiritual ROCK"
Our Source of Living Water
|The LORD said to Moses,|
"Strike the Rock,
and the water will come gushing out"
Footnotes from Blue Letter Bible state that
"This rock, which is a vast block of red granite,
15 feet long, 10 broad, and 12 high,
lies in the wilderness of Rephidim, to the west of Mount Horeb, a part of Sinai.
There are abundant traces of this wonderful miracle remaining at this day.
This rock has been visited, drawn, and described...
...holes and channels appear in the stone,
which could only have been formed by the bursting out and running of water."
|The story in Exodus 17 is an interesting one|
when the LORD gave water to thirsty Israelites,
but what I find even more interesting is what that ROCK represents.
The Apostle Paul makes that clear in 1 Corinthians 10 when he writes,
"they drank from the Spiritual Rock that traveled with them,
and that ROCK was CHRIST."
Jesus Himself made the statement,
"He who believes in Me,
as the Scripture has said,
out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."
He spoke this concerning the Spirit,
whom those believing in Him would receive.
I've read those verses many times,
but it really sunk in today when I realized that
the HOLY SPIRIT is the LIVING WATER
given to us from Jesus Christ, our Spiritual Rock!
I am so thankful for this Gift of Living Water!
Thanks for your visit!
Hope to see you again soon on Joy4Today when I find another topic
that I just can't keep to myself and have to share!
