Now “there cometh a woman of Samaria (samaritan, gentile) to draw water: and Jesus saith unto her, Give Me to drink ? . . . Then saith the woman of Samaria unto Him, How is it that Thou, being a Jew (from Judea, the tribe of Judah), askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans . . .
Jesus (Yehushua) answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the Gift of God, and Who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee Living Water . . . !” John 4:7-10
“Therefore with joy shall ye draw Water out of the wells of Salvation. And in that day shall ye say . . . !” Isaiah 12:1-4
To the Jew first and also to the Greek
. . . ‘For we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a Stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness . . . for it is written, Cursed of God (ref: Deuteronomy 21:23) is every one that hangeth on a tree . . . but He being found in fashion as a man (in the likeness of sinful flesh), humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross . . . for He hath made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him . . . And Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law . . . for the wages of sin is death . . . being made a curse (accursed) for us . . . !
I Corinthians 1:23, Galatians 3:13, Philippians 2:8, II Corinthians 5:21 & Romans 6:23
For the preaching of the cross (the atonement made by Christ upon Calvary) is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are Saved (delivered, set free, healed) it is the power of God . . . unto Salvation (deliverance, freedom, liberty, healing and restoration) . . . For behold, I lay in Zion for a Foundation, a Stone, a tried Stone, a precious Corner Stone, a Sure Foundation: and he that believeth shall not make haste (stumble) . . . Unto you therefore which believe He is Precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the Stone which the builders disallowed, the Same is become the Head (First, Chief) of the corner . . .
I Corinthians 1:18, Romans 1:16, Isaiah 28:16, I Peter 2:7-8
A Stone of stumbling, and a Rock of offense, even to them which stumble at the Word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed . . .But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the Wisdom of God . . . A Light to lighten the Gentiles, and the Glory of Thy people Israel . . . Who of (by) God is made unto us Wisdom, and Righteousness, and Sanctification, and Redemption . . . that Thou mayest be My Salvation (H3444- Yesh-oo-aw’) unto the ends of the earth . . . And the Gentiles shall come to Thy Light, and kings to the brightness of Thy rising ! I Corinthians 1:24,30 Luke 2:32, Isaiah 49:6 & 60:3
Unto you first (the Hebrew people) God, having raised up His Son Jesus, hath sent Him to Bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities . . . And we declare unto you the Glad Tidings, how that the Promise which was made unto the fathers, God hath fulfilled (filled full) the same unto us their children, in that He hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second Psalm, Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten thee !
Acts 3:26, & 13:32-33
Being born (begotten) again . . . of the Word of Truth (verity, verily so)! . . . which effectually worketh also in you that believe ! . . . not of corruptible seed, but of Incorruptible . . . which Seed is Christ (the Anointed) . . . by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever ! I Peter 1:23, James 1:18, I Thessalonians 2:13 & Galatians 3:16
. . . Today, if ye will hear His Voice, harden not your heart . . . as in the day of temptation (trial) in the wilderness . . . For thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time* have I heard thee, and in the day of Salvation (H3444) have I helped (succoured) thee . . . Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, Now is the day of Salvation ! . . .
Psalm 95:7-11, Hebrews 3:7-19, Isaiah 49:8 & II Corinthians 6:2
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord (Adoni – Sovereign King) Jesus Christ, Who according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a Living Hope . . . which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both Sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil (that Rest which has been promised unto all that believe, from the foundation of the world) . . . by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead . . . buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through faith in the operation (work and power) of God, Who hath raised Him from the dead ! . . .
I Peter 1:3, Hebrews 6:19, Colossians 2:12
For God, Who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us . . . Even when we were dead in sins, hath He quickened us together with Christ (for by Grace* ye are saved), and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus ! . . . for heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool . . . .
Ephesians 2:4-6, Isaiah 66:1
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened. . . and raised to walk in newness of Life . . . by the Spirit . . . For this Man after He had offered One Sacrifice (death) for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of GOD ! . . . and by One Offering (bloodless oblation) He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified . . . that God might be Just, and the Justifier of him (all them) that believeth in Jesus ! I Peter 3:18, Romans 6:4, 3:26 & Hebrews 10:12-14
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear (well beloved) children; And walk in self-sacrificing love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself (in exchange) for us as an Offering and Sacrifice to GOD for
a sweetsmelling Savour . . . Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular . . . For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish . . .
Ephesians 5:1-2, I Corinthians 12:27 & II Corin. 2:15
I beseech ye therefore brethren . . . partakers of the heavenly calling . . . by the mercies of GOD, that ye present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable unto GOD . . . for ye are all the children of GOD by faith in Christ Jesus . . . In Whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him ! . . .
Romans 12:1, Hebrews 3:1, Galatians 3:26 & Ephesians 3:12
And being found in Him, not having my own righteousness (filthy rags), which is by the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the Righteousness which is of GOD by faith !’
