Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.
And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb
For His Glory!
In the last MEM we looked at the Prophet that was to be like Moses…
Listen to ‘This Prophet’ to come…
Deut 18:15"The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him.
The Israelites did not want to hear from YHVH (the LORD) for fear of dying…
Deut 18:16This is according to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, 'Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, lest I die.' 17 And the LORD said to me, 'They have spoken well. 18 I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you [Moses], and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
We see that Yeshua (Jesus) is that Prophet…
Acts 3:20and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. 22 "Moses said, 'The Lord God shall raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; to Him you shall give heed in everything He says to you.
But our tendency is not to listen
Jeremiah 29:19because they have not listened to My words,' declares the LORD, 'which I sent to them again and again by My servants the prophets; but you did not listen,' declares the LORD.
Seven times we are admonished in Revelation 2 and 3…
Rev 2:7'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches…' (2:11, 17, 29; 3:6, 13, 22)
How can we know? How can we hear?
Read all Yeshua (Jesus) said about the Helper, The Holy Spirit, The Spirit of Truth
John 14:26"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. (we need to read to know what He said)
John 15:26 "When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness of Me,
John 16:7 "But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.
John 16:13 "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, [mark]He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. [/mark] 14 He shall glorify Me; for He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it to you. 15 "All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said, that He takes of Mine, and will disclose it to you.
If we have the Spirit of truth, we have been forgiven and set free by His grace ...
Acts 2:37Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brethren, what shall we do?" 38 And Peter said to them, "Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 [mark]For the promise is for you and your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself." [/mark]
Listen to The Prophet
Rev 2:7'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches…'
You can make a difference - Amen
Proverbs on Hearing and Listening
Proverbs 1:5A wise man will hear and increase in learning…
Proverbs 20:12The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made both of them.

Proverbs 19:27Cease listening, my son, to discipline, And you will stray from the words of knowledge.

Be a Delight - Listen to YHVH
"If God be our guide He will be our guard."

Always remember those Who serve.
In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less,
A 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and
sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in Front of him.
"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.
"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and Studied the coins in it.
"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.
By now more people were waiting for a table and the Waitress was growing impatient.
"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.
The little boy again counted his coins. "I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on The table and walked away.
The boy finished the ice Cream, paid the cashier and left.
When the waitress Came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the Table.
There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, Were two nickels and five pennies.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

Lead by the Spirit
Are you led by the Spirit? How would you know? One approach is a logical deduction from scripture. If you know you are a son of God, you can make this claim by inference. That is not the same as knowing it by first-hand experience. How do you know this as a practical matter? Do you have thoughts that come to you during the day, popping into your mind from out of the blue? All these common figures of speech suggest that not all of your thoughts originate with you. Yeshua (Jesus) can speak in limitless ways, but this is a primary one you should be attentive to. If these are good ideas and you act in response to them, you will be able to see in hindsight you are led by the Spirit.
