Welcome to worship and the word with pastor Robert last time we started a new series called more than words, where Pastor Robert dives into how you can read the Bible experience the miracles within it. Discover the answers you need and refresh your hunger today. Pastor Robert is sharing a message about how the word of God is like waterfront parcels. This message is great so let's join Pastor this week in the title is water weight. We saw how that the Bible is our prayer.
It is nourishment. Thus, I want to show you how it's water now just use an analogy brand represents food and we know it's the word of God.
So this is our our nourishment. How long could you go without food. Most experts say 40 to 80 dates. How long could you go without water. Most experts say difficult physical conditioning 714 Somerset 741 text but somewhere in that range 7 to 21 days. If the Bible is food and water.
How long spiritually. Could you go without this book. Now I know that our spirits are saving sealed same by the blood sealed by the spirit. But I think we have a lot of malnourished Christians. I don't think they're eating the bread and drinking their water daily like they should be.
I want to pick up on where we were two weeks ago about bread from heaven.
He said God gave them bread from heaven, but the true bread is Jesus, and we know Jesus is Lord, I want to want to show you how God ties bread and water together meaning the word of God.
All right, so Psalm 105 verse 40 says the people asked Annie Brockway all and satisfied them with the bread of heaven, but then he says verse 41, he opened the rock and water gushed out. Now there were there was literal Brad Manna but it represents something spiritual.
Is it possible that the rock represents something in the spiritual as a matter fact, there was a little rough. There was a Little Rock there was literal Brad.
There was literal water want to water came out of a rock but actually says that this rock followed them know if you remember seeing rock following anybody but that was scary as much as a bush burning but didn't burn up. There things that you think all day you will understand is our God supernatural God, but I just want you know this book is a spiritual book. This book is a spiritual book listening carefully or you'll never understand Bob Ricky by a spiritual being two spiritual beings because I'm offering Scripture later the natural mind can understand.
They can only be spiritually discerned.
So there are so many spiritual meanings in this book, spiritual means that both you ever get in and you see the spiritual meanings you will will put this thing that I promise this series you know my goal for this series is to get you reading this book and come on let's just face it Christians sooner or later have to read this book okay but I will make it exciting for you because it is exciting. It's not a history book of thought, a literature, but it's an autobiography for you.got a self gave us this book I was reading so we die that you open the rock and water gushed out. Now we have a New Testament Scripture saying the Rockette is a spiritual meaning and water as a spiritual and I'm not reading the Scripture, but the one right before but I'm going give you, says that even Brad has spiritually evolutionary. This first Corinthians 10 verse four says and they all drank that same what kind of drink spiritual drink, but they like little walk. He says it's a spiritual group. Watch for they drank of that what spiritual rock that followed the end that rock was Christ. By the way, the cloud that went before them by day in the fire by night was the Holy Spirit the cloud and the fire three family times plowing far represent the spirit that rock was Christ so water represents the word on the show a lot more Scripture on but let me tell you what is going on again in the world and in your life everyday. It's a war of words. It's a war of words and whose word are you going to believe because God is telling you what actually happened and what's true and Satan is saying that God really say that you really think that's true but you think got sold out on you so war works, showing a one-word song about three points but we just say this so you gonna get three words in your mind that begin with the same letter. Satan wants to banish us. He wants to flood us. First of all, flood us to flood us with his words. Family stress from the word of God and God wants to fill us with his word. So signals the flood and famished and God wants to feel so here is point number one. Satan tries to flood us. Satan is trying to flood us with words right so Revelation 12 if you're there. Just watch how easy this is to know who it's talking about.
I know there's some verses Revelation hard to understand but there are many that are very easy to understand. This is when the easy ones. Verse nine so the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the devil and Satan is not really hard to figure out who is talking about is it the devil save you Dragon serpent.
Okay, who deceives the whole world. He was Casper angels were cast out with Mark so the serpent is the devil everyone agree with that.
We just read it. Serpent called the devil and Satan went way because when I sure I want a gray-black serving as the devil right okay I watch what the serpent does and I want to bring in one other type of shadow for you and that's the woman. The woman represents the church watch what he does verse 50. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. Okay listening what comes out of your mouth words say he spews water words out of his mouth. After the church because you to be carried away ever in a menacing ever had a flood of words come against you and I will make it you're gonna die early people your family directly you have this disease in your family do not like you are not the night and I got like 50 you might not like it till the end of the storm just off flood you married the wrong person. You're in the wrong marriage you're in the wrong job. God doesn't like you.
Tithing does it work as a whole. They just come against you. Here's what if I love you ever heard this maybe on the only one you think I'm weird I know but never never hear your crazy I know what you think. Sometimes I know this is what he says to prove you're talking to yourself I know I know actually outdone yourself. He's talking God's getting back for your sin. There's a good flood from Emily never heard that one that's punishing you for your sin I told you this before, please hear me theologically. God can never punish you for your sin if you've accepted Jesus because he already punished Jesus Punishing people for the same deal God for the waters and come up to my neck ICP deep Meyer were there is no stating I've come in the D waters where the floods overflow me verse 14 and 15 deliver me out of the mire letting Nazi. Let me be delivered from those who hate me, that's his enemies out of the deep waters. Let not the floodwater overflow me know. Let the deep swallow me up but not the it with drugs and spell itself shut his mouth on me and if you don't think the floods are in the world, the words of the enemy. Watch this verse and try to explain some other way. Psalm 93 verse three the floods have lifted up the Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice say they can talk floods represent the words of the enemy. The floods lift up their waves watch verse 411 but the Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the city says the floods have lifted up their voice and they said yeah but his voice is louder than their voice said I can talk the floods lift up their voice, the floods or try to give the correct tell you when you start seeing the seven Scripture so many things come alive.
Okay, now God can talk.
Satan can talk. We got another problem.
You can talk when asked if this like as your mouth ever got you in trouble. I'll take that as a yes I'm telling you deep waters, floods, I represent represent words right. We need to know. But the word of God is a fountain which word gets words water of life. Jesus: floods, deep waters present in these words watch want. Your words are water also you drown yourself watch my shortly. Proverbs 18 for the words of a man's mouth are deep waters you talk yourself in the following words of a man's mouth are debauched. Proverbs 1821 death and life are in the power of the top okay I study.
I thought about that for a long time death ally from Dr. Deming I could speak, someone could die nine speak someone else to live.
No, here's what it makes God speak what speaks words of life.
Satan speaks words of death, and I have the power to agree with one of I can agree with the one who speaks life over me or I can agree with the one who speaks death over me and now death and life are in the power my time and there's only one thing that can defeat the floods and let me read it. Isaiah 5919. When the enemy comes in like a flood the spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against this is the same three times that we know and probably other times with three times we have recorded Satan came in like a flood. Jesus and fasted 40 days he told internal rocks in the bread that's a pretty good temptation if you need for four days three times listen so important three times Jesus quoted Scripture to overcome to picture it is written, it is written is written have a question for you.
If the son of God uses the Bible to overcome temptation how much more do you need to use the Bible to overcome temptation, the son of God himself when he gets tempted says anything coming from and against this temptation, not with my own intellect, or my own thought is "the Bible it is written, it is written, it is written in the tempter left so number one say trust a flood of tears. Number two. Satan tries to famished us. He tries to famished us from money doesn't want us to hear the word of God because that's what will deliver such little safest Amos 811 watch, bread and water watch.
We hold the days are coming, says the Lord God that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread. I was the message three weeks ago nor thirst for water that's the message they watch but of theory, words of the Lord. A spiritual famine seat again. All through the Bible.
There are two conversations going on is a natural one, and spiritual. Most people are missing spiritual is almost in the family and not a natural family almost instant spiritual famine. By the way he had noticed instead of hearing the words of the Lord. It did not say a famine of the words of the Lord when explained to their plenty of words of God. The problem is us hearing the matter fact, when you think about it. If this book really can do what the Bible says akin to Joshua. One night the person meditates on to be successful in everything he does everything you notice someone manning meditates on or don't be like a tree planned by the water, whose leaves don't whether and who and what ever he does prospers. What ever he does prospers. I don't don't don't get the hyper prosperity definition that you get a bunch of money and drive certain card had no change all at the snow in the Hebrew word prosperous two definitions.
One is a person has a bargaining and you get behind that person and help that person carried the burden of the heel and the other is you actually take the burden off the person and carry it forward for him. But that's what when God prospers you take your burden carries it for you. That's that's pregnant Whatever he does prospers, marriage, family, children, health, finances, career. If you meditate on the book day and night, whatever you do will prosper if we believe that it would change our habits. We been meditating on this book a whole lot more so is that almost another's famine of bread and water little run water for spiritual bread and spiritual water. That's the word of God. The words of the Lord mark for verse 14. The sower sows the word. This is Jesus explain the parable of the soul in the state and these are the ones by the wayside, where the word is so watch when they hear all about hearing the word when they hear, Satan comes in a week what I've been saying all week and within 24 hours away and immediately and takes away the word that was sewn in their hearts melt this scripture right here. I could never figure out one thing. Here's what it said. Satan comes and takes away the word that was sewn in their hearts that Jesus talk here so I can figure out the Satan can take the word out of my heart that scared me. Thy word have I hid in my heart so that I might not sin get you so I got Jesus saying the site, you can take the word on my heart. So how can think the word are so this week I'm studying and praying to him. The Scripture lesson Lord you know it's been years and I've never understood that Scripture and it was like okay and gave it just like that.
So how can Satan take the word out your heart okay. Remember, God speaks and Satan speaks and we can speak and we could. We either agree all of our words either agree with God's order Satan's words that but when you speak just from where you speak from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. So God sows the word someone speaks the word preachers Lord teaches the word you read the word and the word is sown in your heart. Satan what he does is immediately tries to get you to speak something in opposition of the word you just heard and out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
And when you speak it out. It leaves your heart. That's the problem.
So when God speaks something to me I have to immediately hide it in my heart. I asked meditate on it. I have to memorize it. I have to hold onto it. After pondering like Mary did when the angel came to, I have to hold onto that word hold fast to the word you receive. So sacred trust of lettuce any trust to famished us and here's .3 Jesus wants to fill us and wants to fill us with the word of God first Corinthians to a quote as well ago, but it's worth reading verse 13 these things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the spirit of God: surprise you and people you don't know price argue against Bible they do not receive the things got their food stamp, nor can he know this record for no means understand he can't even understand them because are spiritually discerned. So, two conversations, natural and spiritual people who read the Bible just naturalize remember and understand your freedom, spiritual once it's a spiritual book written by spiritual being spiritual beings, so I'm sure you conversation watch the natural and the spiritual conversation happening right this is the woman at the well John for verse seven alumnus Mary Kay McGraw water. Jesus said to her, give me a drink for his disciples gone away the city to buy food. Then the woman of Samaria said to him, how is it that you being a Jew, ask a drink for me, a Samaritan woman or Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
By the way 2000 years ago. That's racism right there and racism was older, but there's racism right there.
Verse 10 Jesus answered and said to her listlessness.
Can you imagine Jesus things if you knew the gift of God that left this and who it is who says to you, give me a drink. You wouldn't ask him and he would've given you living water you can you imagine Jesus that he says if you just knew your talk you were talking to you just name that I created the whole universe, and I hold it in the palm of my display. I measure the universe. Verse by the span of my you will know how big universe is it's it's it's this big right there.over some negatives in the second. If you just know there was talk but I just love that guy so there's the spiritual conversation right east him. Spiritual water go right back to the natural conversation will only send this to him sir, you have nothing to draw with in the well is in other words, logic says. Science says the well is deep in your nothing wrong with you and I like this where did you get that living water. Watch this. Are you greater than our father Jacob. The yeah yes who gave us as well and gray fermenting self as well as the Sons of livestock Jesus answering said, there never drinks this water. This natural water will thirst again but whoever drinks of the spiritual water water that I give will never thirst. But the water that I will give him will become a fountain of living water spraying up into everlasting life. BC the natural spiritual see, don't let anybody talk you out of that this Bible is the word of God because if there natural minded if they haven't come to Christ. Yet if they're not reading this book will spiritualize. This is what this is. How foolish that argument when you don't have anything to draw with how young at the water up and Jesus since I'm not talking natural, spiritual, or will you follow me phenomenal so he says it will become a fountain on the inside of you. Satan wants to flood us but Jesus wants to put a fountain inside. By the way, here's what's great fountain washes from inside out. We always try to take care of the outward things in our lives. Instead of reading the word to get in the fountain let the fountain washes that this book will wash says in Ephesians 5 I just have to read it under such Assets. I sent three husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and maybe sober that he might sanctify Jillian's for plans with the washing of water by the word okay so our spirits are cleansed by the blood of our souls are planes by the word you know where the warriors it's in your mind will and emotions. You have a problem with all to use.
I just can overcome these thoughts of pride or greed or bitterness or anger lost where it is because you're not washing with the word you say another way, not taking a bath you read this book every day of Clinton's sanctifying Flinders wanted to take a moment to think about with Pastor Richard today and listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to you if you want to connect with us or check out some of past Roberts at the messages.
