Living Water

A waterfall in Yardimli, Azerbaijan.

He’s an overcomer. She’s an overcomer. I’m an overcomer. Wouldn’t you like to be an overcomer, too? Drink living water. Be an overcomer!

Today and yesterday reading the first four chapters in the book of Revelation, over and over we are told what will happen to those who are overcomers. He who overcomes will:

…eat from the tree of life in the Paradise of God.

…wear the crown of life.

…not be hurt by the second death.

…receive some of the hidden manna.

…receive a white stone with a new name written on it.

…receive authority over the nations…and receive the morning star.

…be clothed in white garments.

…not have his name erased from the book of Life.

…have his name confessed before the Father and His angels.

…be a pillar in God’s temple.

…have the name of God written on him.

…sit down on the throne with Jesus.

And, in Revelation 21:7 it says: “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.” (NKJV)

In 1 John 5:3-5, 11, 12–“3Forthis is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; andHis commandments are not burdensome. 4For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. 5Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?11And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. (NASB)

John 4:10Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water14but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
