TEXT: John 4:5-30
5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus 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.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
Key Verse: “If a man therefore purges himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work” 2 Timothy 2: 21
God had ordained women to fulfil His purpose in the end time revival of the Lord. Women have a role, a purpose, a divine responsibility in the house of God. And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. Helpmeet means a suitable helper. It means someone to work with man to accomplish God’s purpose.
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.” Joel 2: 28-29. Let not the woman be silent in the end time revival. All flesh includes the woman. He says, “sons and daughters shall prophesy.” Prophesying generally, not only in revelations.
Prophecy means divine utterance. That means God is using our voice as His voice. It means speaking on behalf of God. God is speaking by us. God is just using our voice to edify the church. It can come by revelation. When the Pastor comes to teach the word of God he is prophesying. When a word of wisdom comes to instruct on what to do, it is prophecy because it is divine utterance. The woman has a place in the end time move of God because God is going to use her voice and pour His spirit upon her.
Get ready woman of God. He will use you if you purge yourself of the properties of the world and of their ungodly attires, “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.” God is looking for a vessel in this end time revival. He is not looking for just any vessel but for a vessel that is purged and ready for use according to the standard of His word.
Thought for the day: Get ready for the outpouring of the Spirit of God.
Song for the day: Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.....
Bible reading for the day: 1 Samuel 10-12; Luke 13:22-35
