Hello, John and Doves,

 

In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

John 7:37   NIV

 

This evening—Wednesday, 15 October 2014—begins Shmini Atzeret, the eighth and greatest day of the celebration of Sukkot, the Festival of Booths, otherwise known as Tabernacles.

 

Shemini Atzeret (שְׁמִינִי עֲצֶֽרֶת – "Eighth [day of] Assembly"; Sefardic/Israeli pron. shəmini atzčret; Ashkenazic pron. shmini-atsčres) is a Jewish holiday.

 

As such, we see that through scripture, the LORD is making an offer to mankind to believe in Him.

 

It is written,

            For the choir director: A psalm of the descendants of Korah. As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God.

Psalm 42:1  NLT

 

Again, it is written,

            13Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. 14But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”

John 4:13-14  NLT

 

~Blessings,

Mike
