The revelation

I've learned something awesome and I wanted to share it with you. We all know the story where Jesus speaks with a Samaritan woman at the Jacob's well. It's interesting how many mysteries there are in that passage. I've never thought of it like that. Let's see. The first interesting thing is that Jesus sat down at the Jacob's well. This well which represents all our corruption, all of the mixture, all the clever I-want-to-be-better-than-everybody-else...the old well. This well was closed by Jesus, because as He came, He SAT down. A Well sitting on a well. He really is a well. He closed a stream and opened up a living stream. Suddenly a woman came with a container and wanted to draw water. Jesus said to her: “Please give me a drink.”, but He spoke in mystery, going deeper, wanting to touch her heart not just have water. He was trying to bring her to think in a different realm, but she kept thinking about all the differences between him and her, where they worship, how they worship, Jerusalem, the mountain, questioning how He can give her living water...she was totally mixed up. 


The other thing: How many husbands did this woman have? Five! The thing behind it: we have five senses and it's like we're married to them. They stick to us and we're living with one husband that isn't. The number six is the number of man. This means we are living in a worldly human body. Jesus appears as the seventh man in this woman's life. The seventh husband- this would be the perfect Husband, if she asked. As He spoke to her, He revealed her something that touched her personally and she dropped her water-pot and became a water-pot herself carrying the living water and leaving the other water where it was. These fifteen minutes with Jesus revealing Himself to her have converted a city, because she ran into the city and there was something anointed about her confession: “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did!” I think what she wanted to say was: “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did, but loved me through it!” Information about her say that this woman's name was Photini. As we see, she was deleted from Church history. Why? Because she was a woman. You can do a research on her if you want and have time for it. Photini was recorded in history as one of the most powerful, anointed woman apostle ever to walk the earth. She walked with Peter, James and John. Her name was always linked to those three. She led city after city to Jesus and she even led Nero's brother to Jesus Christ, when she was in prison. 

Fifteen minutes with Jesus and you can change the world.

This concludes my short post! I just wanted to share this revelation with you! We should search for the mysteries in God's Words, which is full of life! I think it's something amazing! If we stick to our living-well we will never be thirsty again, that means we will never thirst for the earthly things, but be satisfied with Him, like letting Jesus close our Jacob's well and sit on it by ruling it ^_^

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
