Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 16:4-7
16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
16:5 And I heard the angel of the waters saying: "You are righteous, O Lord, The One who is and who was and who is to be, Because You have judged these things.
16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due."
16:7 And I heard another from the altar saying, "Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments."

The third bowl of God's wrath is poured out on the rivers and springs of water, and they become blood.

The spiritual meaning according to the Bible refers to the language of the love of God to reveal the secret of the heavenly kingdom.

Mark 4:10-12
4:10 But when He was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the parable.
4:11 And He said to them, "To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables,
4:12 "so that 'Seeing they may see and not perceive, And hearing they may hear and not understand; Lest they should turn, And their sins be forgiven them.'"

If we have the conscience or the ground of heart that is good, we will be able to enter and see the heart of God to understand His heart which is full of love. We can understand the revelation of God's Word.

If the conscience is not good or one is hard-hearted, he will hear the Word only as the parable. He cannot understand the Word. He cannot catch the language of God's love.

Philemon 1:10-12
1:10 I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten while in my chains,
1:11 who once was unprofitable to you, but now is profitable to you and to me.
1:12 I am sending him back. You therefore receive him, that is, my own heart,

For example, Onesimus once was unprofitable and evil as well as he did not have a good conscience. Nevertheless, he could understand the love of God and His Word after Paul brought him to see the heart of God, so he became his own heart. He also became God's own heart to love and be loved by Him.

Exodus 33:23
33:23 "Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen."

God let Moses to see His back, so he could write the first five books of the Bible that began from the book of Genesis that had happened far before Moses was born.

Revelation 1:13-16
1:13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band.
1:14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire;
1:15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;
1:16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

God let John the Apostle to see His face, so he could write the five last books of the Bible which ends in the book of Revelation which happens on the last age, far away after he passed away (something which has not happened yet, but will happen for sure).

God lets the church on the last days to see His heart and enter it to feel His great love. We can understand that the true Word refers to the language of God's love to us.

There are two targets of the third bowl of God's wrath as follows:

  1. The rivers or the active flows of water. It refers to all activities of men in the world.
  2. The springs of water. It refers to the source of life of men.

Thus, the activities and source of life of men in the world are threatened by the wrath of God or under the covering of His third wrath. The beginning is in the economy crisis.

Romans 1:16-17
1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
1:17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."

The Gospel of God's Word refers to the true source of life from heaven which now is belittled by men, including Christians and God's servants. Nevertheless, it never turns into blood or it never dies because the Gospel or God's Word refers to God's power that is able to revive us spiritually and physically. The righteous live by faith from hearing the Word in the anointing of Holy Spirit.

Romans 10:17
10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Nevertheless, not all people willingly hear the Word.

Romans 10:16,18-21
10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our report?"
10:18 But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: "Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world."
10:19 But I say, did Israel not know? First Moses says: "I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation, I will move you to anger by a foolish nation."
10:20 But Isaiah is very bold and says: "I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me."
10:21 But to Israel he says: "All day long I have stretched out My hands To a disobedient and contrary people."

Although hearing the Word or Gospel because it had been preached up to the ends of the world, the Israelites did not know. They disobeyed, resisted, and left God, so His mercy came to the Gentiles to receive His Word or enter and live in the faith until causing the jealousy to the Israelites.

John 8:30-36
8:30 As He spoke these words, many believed in Him.
8:31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
8:32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
8:33 They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can you say, 'You will be made free'?"
8:34 Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.
8:35 "And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.
8:36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

The Israelites were arrogant and felt great and righteous when hearing the Word which was able to set free from the slavery of sins.

Habakkuk 2:4-5
2:4 "Behold the proud, His soul is not uprightin him; But the just shall live by his faith.
2:5 "Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, He is a proud man, And he does not stay at home. Because he enlarges his desire as hell, And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied, He gathers to himself all nations And heaps up for himself all peoples.

It is the same as not having the straight sincere heart, but dishonesty. Such people feel great, but never get the satisfaction. They do not have life, but the covering of God's wrath.

John 4:6-10, 13-14
4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
4:7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink."
4:8 For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
4:9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
4:13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,
4:14 "but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."

[verse 16] The sixth hour refers to the hottest time. When the greatest crisis happens, the Gentiles must open the heart for hearing the words of Jesus "Give Me a drink."It means that we must satisfy God's heart. It is the solution for getting the living water of Holy Spirit that makes us satisfied until the crisis ends. The source of crisis or problems in the world is the heart which is not satisfied.

John 4:16-18
4:16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
4:17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'
4:18 "for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly."

The process of giving drink to Jesus is through confessing sins to God and others by the encouragement of the Word which points at the sins of bitterness, uncleanness, and evil. As a result, the blood of Jesus sanctifies us from sins and we get the flow of the water of Holy Spirit.

John 4:28-30,39
4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men,
4:29 "Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?"
4:30 Then they went out of the city and came to Him.
4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever did."

The functions of Holy Spirit are as follows:

  1. Giving the true satisfaction, so the Gentiles can leave the old waterpot, namely the old life or the dry and dead spirituality. It has been filled by the power of Holy Spirit, so we can always give thanks. We can testify, so other people can also believe Jesus and do not get the judgment, but salvation and blessings of God
    John 4:40-42
    4:40 So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.
    4:41 And many more believed because of His own word.
    4:42 Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."

    Believing because of the testimony of others refers to the second hand. It needs to be increased to be the first hand, namely believing because of hearing the Word.

  2. Holy Spirit is able to guarantee our life.
    In the time of crisis, the righteous live by faith, trust, and entrust life to God for facing the matter of water's becoming blood. The sources in the world cannot guarantee our life.

    Ezekiel 47:8-10
    47:8 Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed.
    47:9 "And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.
    47:10 "It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many.

    Holy Spirit is able to preserve our life physically in the midst of difficulties or crises in the world up to the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years. Holy Spirit is able to give us life spiritually, so we can live in righteousness and holiness in the midst of the darkness of the world.

    [verse 10] We can be faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line.

  3. Holy Spirit encourages us to pray and worship God always.
    John 4:14
    4:14 "but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."

    We get the renewal of life from the fleshly men to the spiritual ones like Jesus is, namely we become honest.

    John 4:16-17
    4:16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
    4:17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'

    We become the house of prayer. Our prayer is answered by God. The physical miracle will also happen. Impossible things can be made possible.

    For example, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego could live in the fire which had been heated seven times more than the usual. Daniel could live in the den of lions. It was impossible to live, but Holy Spirit was able to erase the impossibility.

God blesses you.
