How Many Times is “Water” Mentioned in the Bible and How Significant Is It? by Valerie Brown Cheers

I have run the references to water (or subordinates of it) in scripture and think of 722. The criticalness of water in scripture is an enormous inquiry, and one that will consume up more room than I have here. Maybe I can issue you only a couple of considerations that will wet your appetite for further study.

The principal notice of water in scripture is found in Genesis 1:2 what’s more, the last specify is found in Revelation 22:17.   In the middle of those two books water streams directly through the pages of scripture. This ought to instruct us that there is an incredible otherworldly centrality to it.

Water speaks of physical (or natural) conception

In Genesis 1:20

We read of the first mention of life, and this life originates from water, “…Let the waters yield inexhaustibly the moving animal that hath life…”. This thought is again rehashed in the New Testament in John 3 when Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews is making inquiries of Jesus. In verse 5 we read, “With the exception of a man be conceived of water and of the Spirit, he can’t go into the kingdom of God.” Notice here, the water conception (physical) precedes the Spirit conception (profound). We see the truth of this when a lady is in the process of childbirth and the child is going to be conceived. We hold up for the ‘waters to break’ which encompass the infant until conception. We can’t be profoundly re-conceived until we have first been characteristically been naturally conceived.

Water addresses us of the expression or word of God

In Ephesians 5:26, concerning the congregation we read, “That he may bless and rinse it with the washing of water by the saying.” The Psalmist in Psalm 119:9 composes “Fortitude should a young man rinse his direction? by taking notice thereto as indicated by thy word.” Reading the Bible has a purifying impact on the peruser. Christians would do well to sit and read, mull over and ruminate together on the expression of God.

In the Tabernacle in the Old Testament, we read in Exodus 30:18 that Moses was to make a laver of metal and place water in it. This was to be arranged between the Tabernacle and the sacrificial stone. The clerics were to wash their hands and feet in this when they went into the Tabernacle “that they bite the dust or die not”. They needed to be purified. The Lord was letting them know that they always expected to have their feet cleaned. We see a picture of this in John 13. The Lord Jesus washes the pupils feet. They were at that point washed, yet required their feet washing.

Consider the expressions of verses 9-10 “Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet just, additionally my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not spare to wash his feet, yet is clean every whit: and ye are clean, yet not all.”

Note that Lord (v14) then tells the followers that they should likewise to wash every others feet, “On the off chance that I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye additionally should wash each other’s feet.” I can’t help thinking that this is a future direction, as right now their feet were clean. Doubtlessly, profoundly talking, we wash every others feet through perusing the expression of God. That is the reason the Lord said in John 15:3

“Presently ye are clean through the saying which I have identified with you.” In the Christian life, we all need to be filtered from the foulness of this world, we all need our feet cleaned.

Water identifies with us of the cleansing of the Christian

This is truly connected to the past thought, however the accompanying verses are intriguing to contemplate on. Concerning the country of Israel in a future day, the accompanying words are recorded in Ezekiel 36:25

Ezekiel 36:25
At that point will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye might be clean: from all your griminess, and from all your godlike objects, will I scrub you.

This is a guarantee from God for a period when Israel comes back to Him (see versus 24-38). Notwithstanding, there is additionally plainly an application here for the heathen who comes to Christ when we contrast this verse and Hebrews 10:22

Hebrews 10:22

Give us a chance to draw close with a genuine heart in full affirmation of confidence, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil soul, and our bodies washed with unadulterated or pure water.

Water addresses us of profound and/or spiritual life

In Genesis 2 we read of the ideal states of the greenery or garden enclosure of Eden. This patio nursery was watered by a waterway (v10). Without water, the greenhouse would have passed on, as plants, creatures and people can’t make due without water. I can’t help thinking that this waterway is a wonderful picture of the life that Christ provides for His kids through the Spirit of God. Consider the accompanying verses that talk about this:

Exodus (which means mass migration) 17:6

Behold, I will remain before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt destroy the rock, and there might come water out of it, that the individuals may drink. What’s more, Moses do as such in seeing the older folks of Israel.

Isaiah 12:2-3

See, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be apprehensive: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my quality and my tune; he likewise is turned into my salvation. Along these lines with happiness might ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 55:1

HO, each one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no cash; come ye, purchase, and eat; yea, come, purchase wine and milk without cash and without cost.

Jeremiah 2:13

For my kin or people have conferred two wrongs; they have neglected me the wellspring of living waters, and cut them out reservoirs, broken storages, that can hold no water.

John 4:14

Yet whosoever drinketh of the water that I might issue him should never thirst; however the water that I should issue him might be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

John 7:38-39

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his tummy might stream streams of living water. (However this spake he of the Spirit, which they that accept on him ought to get: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given: in light of the fact that that Jesus was not yet celebrated.)

This water is the everlasting life that we appreciate now in Christ. That is the reason the scripture says in 1 John 5:12

“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” Without water there can’t be life: Without the Lord Jesus Christ there can’t be unceasing life. It’s fascinating to me that the best territory of water on the planet today is the ocean. The ocean in scripture is an intriguing subject, and one we can’t go into here. Nonetheless, I would urge you to take a gander at the references and you will see that the ocean regularly identifies with us of anxiety and tribulation (See Matthew 14:22-33, Mark 6:47-52, John 6:15-21 ).

Note, in these sections, the oceans were quieted by the Lord Jesus. When we finish these contemplations, we read those beautiful words in Revelation 21:1.

Revelation (Disclosure) 21:1

Furthermore, I saw another paradise and another earth: for the first paradise and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more ocean.”

No more ocean in Heaven, no more restlesness, no more tribulation, all cooled by the Lord Jesus Christ for eternity. Nonetheless, however there will be no more ocean in Heaven, there will be water, interminable water that streams until the end of time.

No more ocean in Heaven, no more restlesness, no more tribulation, all smoothed by the Lord Jesus Christ until the end of time. On the other hand, although there will be no more ocean in Heaven, there will be water, endless water that streams for eternity.

Revelation 22:1-2

Furthermore, he shewed me an immaculate waterway of water of life, totally obvious, undertaking out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Amidst the road of it, and on either side of the stream, was there the tree of life, which uncovered twelve way of organic products, and yielded her natural product consistently: and the leaves of the tree were for the mending of the countries.

There may be other profound sorts for water that I haven’t considered, yet the above are the ones that spring to brain. I’ll abandon you with the last reference to water in the Bible found in Revelation 22:17

Revelation 21:17

Also, the Spirit and the bride say, Come. What’s more, given him a chance to that heareth say, Come. Also, give him a chance to that is athirst come. Furthermore, whosoever will, give him a chance to take the water of life freely.

Hunza Water and Toxins

Structured water also has a decreased surface tension. Why is this important? Surface of normal water will measure at nearly twice that of “living” water of the Hunza valley. Municipal water will commonly measure 75 dyne surface tension. Surface tension is the force needed to “break” the surface of a body of water. This can be demonstrated by watching water as you begin to stick your finger into the water. Watch how the water “bends” before giving way to the insertion of your finger. Now, “living” water only has an average surface tension of 45 dyne. This lowered surface tension is the result of a highly-ordered structure of water and the presence of nano-colloidal minerals found in Hunza water. The importance of this lowered surface tension is revealed in the body’s ability to eliminate toxins. When the body loses its ability eliminate toxins, free radical scavenging occurs eventually leading to degenerative diseases. For more information on structured water, visit the Learning Center for Structured Water.

The Hunza Water Conditioner is designed to reduce the toxins commonly found in your water supply while reducing the surface tension of the water. The result is a softer, sweeter water that is pleasant to drink. Energy levels increase and a general sense of well-being results. Most importantly, the water necessary for toxin elimination and good health are generated by the Hunza Water Ionizer.
