Christ says;"From the believers heart flows rivers of living water."

A true believer has living water flowing from their heart.

Do you have rivers of living water flowing from your heart? Obviously it is a metaphorical saying but there are verses in the bible that tell us what that river should be.

If one does not understand then it is certain they do not believe.

Here are some verses to think about.

The Lord says; "my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living water, and dug out cisterns for themselves, cracked cisterns that can hold no water.

"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".

"Then the Lord, my God, shall come, and all his holy ones with him.
On that day there shall no longer be cold or frost.
There shall be one continuous day, known to the Lord, not day and night, for in the evening time there shall be light.
On that day, living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea, and half to the western sea, and it shall be so in summer and in winter.
The Lord shall become king over the whole earth; on that day the Lord shall be the only one, and his name the only one."

Christ says; "If only you recognized Gods gift, and who it is that is saying to you, "Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water."

First of all, isn't there caution because Isn't the heart a deceptive place according to Jeremiah 17 v 9; 10 v 23 ?
True, a heart of stone can become a heart of flesh - Ezekiel 11 v 19; 36 v 26
and that is because living water must have Jesus as its source.- John 4 vs 11,14
So, drink up my friend.

Actually, genuine worshipers shall worship the Lord in spirit and in truth.

Whatever the heart is full of that is what your mouth will speak.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.

The Lord is near to everyone who calls upon Him, who call upon Him in truth.

The KEY to having a witness of living waters coming out of your belly through the spirit is praying for OTHERS in the Spirit and through a travailing anointing for cleansing by Jesus blood .....Which can come the gifts of Holy Spirit and gifts of Prayer of deliverance of spirits ......... Other areas is when you go to a healing meeting and prayer has gone up and living water blessing is every where in the meeting ........... Then there is the river of God vision in Ezekiel 47 which God blesses the people in the mission field who go in prayer and become a unselfish ministers , which many mission have witnessed are the farther from the local home church the power to bless grows beyond the imagination , where many people can be healed and cleansed in their expectations of faith to the Lord .......... In this vision the man measures a distance away the river grows , then measure and distance away then the River of God goes over his knees ..........Then a measure away the River of God grows over the loins , then a measure away father , and it is over the mans head and he can swim in the river , then the river goes into the desert areas and will bring healing water that every thing that lives.........
