Quote of the Week: John 19:34, note 1

January 21, 2014

John 19:34—“But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.”

Note 1 on blood and water: “Two substances came out of the Lord’s pierced side: blood and water. Blood is for redemption, to deal with sins (1:29; Heb. 9:22) for the purchasing of the church (Acts 20:28). Water is for imparting life, to deal with death (12:24; 3:14-15) for the producing of the church (Eph. 5:29-30). The Lord’s death, on the negative side, takes away our sins, and on the positive side, imparts life into us. Hence, it has two aspects: the redemptive aspect and the life-imparting aspect. The redemptive aspect is for the life-imparting aspect…” [You can go here to read the rest of this wonderful note.]”

  • IF ONLY YOU KNEW WHAT I DID, IF YOU HEARD MY THOUGHTS, IF YOU SAW WHAT I WANTED TO DO TO MYSELF, IF ONLY YOU KNEW WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT GOD AT ONE POINT. BUT COME TO FIND OUT I WAS WRONG, COME TO FIND OUT GOD DO LOVE ME MORE THEN I KNOW, COME TO FIND OUT I WAS THE ONE THAT WAS RUNNING AWAY WHEN ALL THE TIME HE WAS PULLING ME. I WAS THE BAD GUY WHEN GOD WAS THE PLOICE. I WAS RUNNING AWAY AND HE WAS RUNNING BEHIND ME. AND FOR THAT I KNOW WHO I AM, I KNOW NOW THAT I AM A SON OF A KING. AND I CAN’T GO BACK. IN FACT I’M SCARED TO GO BACK. I WANT TO LIVE, BREATH, EAT, SMELL, SO GOOD THAT WHEN PEOPLE LOOK AT ME THEY SEE PASS THRU ME AND SEE NOTHING BUT GOD IN ME. I’M SO BLESS, I’M SO HAPPY THAT GOD HAS GIVING ME A SECOND CHANGE TO PROVE MYSELF TO HIM.

    TO ANYONE THAT IS READING THIS:
    NO MATTER WHAT YOU’RE GOING THRU, NO MATTER HOW BAD THE ISUSSE IS GOD IS ONLY DOING IT FOR ONE REASON AND THAT’S TO GET THE GLORY. BE BLESS LOVE YOU ALL.
