I Thirst December 1

I Thirst December 1

John 4:7

There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

An appointed time, do you think that Jesus just happened to get here at this exact moment by coincidence? No, it was commissioned by God, and the timing was through the Holy Spirit.

Notice Jesus didn't say, 'Good Afternoon, could you possibly spare some water?' There's a reason why he said give me drink. Let's look at another verse a couple of chapters ahead in:

John 6:63

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Jesus spoke these words, about himself he said, the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

When I first read this, I was at verse 4:7 and skipped to verse 6:63. After I read this, I thought everything Jesus said was words from the spirit. I decided that I would continue my reading, but that I would read Jesus's words from the spirit side, and flipped back to:

John 4:7

Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

I paused and gave deep thought; what was the spirit saying? What would the Holy Spirit thirst for? How could He thirst? Then the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "I Thirst for Righteousness!"

Wow! Righteousness is the reconciliation of man with God. The Holy Spirit wants you justified with God through Jesus! But we see this statement again in,

John 19:28

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

The last words Jesus spoke before His death on the cross: I Thirst.

It was code for I want humankind to be righteous with God. Selah

And how did humankind respond? They shoved a sponge with vinegar in His mouth.

He is: Jehovah-Tzidkenu

The Lord our Righteousness
