Jesus said that His followers are cleaned by the word of God so they can bear more fruit. He also said that those who have a clean heart will see God. So in order to have a clean heart one must be cleaned by the word of God.

Jesus also said that from the believers heart will flow rivers of living water. He said to love God with all your heart. To love God keep His word. He said that whatever your heart is full of that is what your mouth will speak.

So there it is. The heart is full of the word of God which is living water as scripture states.

So don't you think Jesus actually taught that the word of God cleans those who spread it?


IE;

"I am the true vine and my Father is the vine grower. He prunes away every branch in me that bears no fruit but trims clean the fruitful ones to increase their yield.Yet you are cleaned by the word I have spoken to you."

"Blessed are the clean of heart, they will see God."

"From the believers heart shall flow rivers of living water."

"Anyone who drinks the water I give him shall never become thirsty the water I give him shall be like a well inside him springing up to provide eternal life."

Jeremiah 17:13 NRS

13 "O hope of Israel! O Lord! All who forsake you shall be put to shame; those who turn away from you shall be recorded in the underworld, for they have forsaken the fountain of living water, the Lord.
"

"I shall change and purify the lips of the people so they shall all call upon the name of the Lord to serve Him with one accord."

Worship God alone, Him alone shall you serve."

"Genuine worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth.

Explain spirit and truth please. Quoting bible verses is not explaining what spirit and truth is.

As Jesus said "(Father)Your word is truth."

And;

"The words I spoke to you are spirit and life."


So it is God's word which is written in scripture that is spirit, truth and life.

"No one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and spirit."

God is spirit. God is His word.

"Let your heart hold fast to my word, keep my commands so you will live."


Whoever has heard from the Father and learned from Him comes to me.

I hope one say that you get to know the one the scriptures testify of, it is above and beyond knowing bible verses, and trying to stick them on yourself like they're a band aid.

Protection, band aid?

"I am the Lord your God, the One who stirs up the sea till its waves roar, the Lord of Hosts. I have put my words into your mouth and shielded you with the shadow of my hand."

If I am a,parrot then Jesus was a parrot. It's good to be a parrot and servant of the Most High.

Anyone who rejects me and does not accept my word he already has his judge, namely the words I have spoken that's what will condemn him on the last day.

Save water; and shower with a friend!
