JOHN 7:37 2010 HAITIAN EARTHQUAKE SURVIVOR Evans Monsignac is THE LONGEST-EVER EARTHQUAKE SURVIVOR THE LONGEST WITHOUTWATER SURVIVOR

2010 HAITIAN EARTHQUAKE STATISTICS: SURVIVOR 27 YEARS OLD 27 DAYS TRAPPED WITHOUT FOOD WITHOUT WATER

27 KILOGRAMS OF WEIGHT LOST (60 LBS) WHEN DISCOVERED, HE WEIGHED ONLY 88 LBS (40 KILOGRAMS) I WAS RESIGNED TO DEATH, BUT GOD GAVE ME LIFE. EVANS MONSIGNAC THE FACT THAT IM ALIVE TODAY ISNT

BECAUSE OF ME; ITS BECAUSE OF THE GRACE OF GOD. ITS A MIRACLE; I CANT EXPLAIN IT. NOW I KNOW I JUST LIVE LIFE TO THE BEST I CAN EACH DAY. EVANS MONSIGNAC IN TIME OF CRISIS WE ARE ALL THIRSTY WHEN OUR LIVES ARE

FALLING APART. WE ARE THIRSTY FOR A SPIRITUAL NEED THAT SUSTAINS US WHEN ALL HOPE HAS BEEN BURIED. WE DONT NEED TO BE THE LONGEST-EVER WITHOUT LIVING WATER SURVIVORS. GOD PROVIDES LIVING WATER THAT HELPS US LIVE BEYOND THE FEAR OF DEATH ON THE LAST AND GREATEST DAY OF THE FEAST,

JESUS STOOD AND SAID IN A LOUD VOICE, IF ANYBODY IS THIRSTY, LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK. WHOEVER BELIEVES IN ME, AS THE SCRIPTURE HAS SAID, STREAMS OF LIVING WATER WILL FLOW FROM WITHIN HIM. BY THIS HE MEANT THE SPIRIT, WHOM THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN HIM WERE LATER TO RECEIVE.

JOHN 7:37-39 FEAST OF TABERNACLES ALL JEWS JOURNEYED TO JERUSALEM AND BUILT GREEN BOOTHS MADE WITH TREE BRANCHES: IN THE COURTS OF THE TEMPLE. IN THE CITY STREETS AND HOUSETOPS. IN THE SURROUNDING HILLS AND VALLEYS.

FEAST OF TABERNACLES 1. THE FEAST WAS A TIME OF GRATITUDE FOR: GODS CARE AND PROTECTION DURING THE EXODUS AND IN THE WILDERNESS. GODS BLESSING AND HARVEST IN ISRAEL, EVEN WHEN NOT AS ABUNDANT AS OTHER YEARS. FEAST OF TABERNACLES

2. THE FEAST WAS A UNIVERSAL GATHERING OF THE PEOPLE OF GOD: FROM ALL THE CORNERS OF PALESTINE. FROM ALL THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD. FEAST OF TABERNACLES 3. THE FEAST WAS A SYMBOL OF

THE TEMPORAL CHARACTER OF THEIR LIFE: IN THE EGYPT AND IN THE WILDERNESS. IN THE PROMISED LAND, BECAUSE THEY WERE STILL ON THE JOURNEY TO HEAVEN. FEAST OF TABERNACLES 4. THE FEAST WAS A HOLIDAY FILLED WITH PEACE, JOY, AND BEAUTY. PEOPLE FELT FORGIVEN AND AT PEACE

FOLLOWING THE DAY OF ATONEMENT. PEOPLE REJOICED AND RESTED AFTER THE HARVEST. PEOPLE ENJOYED THEIR RELATIONSHIPS WITH EACH OTHER AND WITH THE LORD. PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCE GODS FORGIVENESS AND GRACE MANIFEST INNER HARMONY OF SOUL WITH THE

LORD. FEAST OF TABERNACLES 5. THE FEAST WAS A REMINDER THAT THE LORD IS: THE SOURCE OF SALVATION. THE SOURCE OF LIVING WATER. DAILY CEREMONY DURING

THE FEAST PRIESTS SOUNDED THE SILVER TRUMPETS. PEOPLE SHOUTED FROM THEIR BOOTHS. PRIEST FILLED ONE FLAGON DIPPED IN THE WATERS OF THE KEDRON, AND ANOTHER FLAGON WITH WINE. PRIEST ASCENDED THE STEPS OF THE TEMPLE, KEEPING TIME WITH THE MUSIC WITH SLOW MEASURED TREAD, CHANTING, OUR FEET SHALL STAND WITHIN THY GATES, O JESUSALEM (PSALM 122:2), AND BORE THE FLAGONS TO THE ALTAR.

DAILY CEREMONY DURING THE FEAST TWO SILVER BASINS WERE POSITIONED NEXT TO THE ALTAR WITH A PRIEST STANDING AT EACH ONE. THE FLAGON OF WATER WAS POURED INTO ONE BASIN AND THE FLAGON OF WINE WAS POURED INTO THE OTHER BASIN. THE CONTENTS OF BOTH BASINS FLOWED INTO A PIPE WHICH COMMUNICATED WITH THE KEDRON, AND WAS CONDUCTED TO THE DEAD SEA.

DAILY CEREMONY DURING THE FEAST THIS DISPLAY OF CONSECRATED FLOWING WATER AND WINE REPRESENTS THE FOUNTAIN THAT GUSHED FROM THE ROCK IN THE DESERT FOR ALL WHO WERE THIRSTY. REPRESENTS THE FLOWING OF THE MESSIAHS BLOOD FOR THE

SALVATION OF ALL WHO ARE THIRSTY. IT WAS ON THE LAST DAY OF THIS HOLIDAY THAT JESUS SAID THESE WORDS: IF ANYBODY IS THIRSTY, LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK. WHOEVER BELIEVES IN ME, AS THE SCRIPTURE HAS SAID, STREAMS OF LIVING WATER WILL FLOW FROM WITHIN HIM (JOHN, 7:37-38). WE READ IN THE BOOK DESIRE OF AGES THAT THESE WORDS MADE A DEEP IMPRESSION ON THOSE WHO HEARD THEM:

MANY OF THOSE WHO HEARD JESUS WERE MOURNERS OVER DISAPPOINTED HOPES, MANY WERE NOURISHING A SECRET GRIEF, MANY WERE SEEKING TO SATISFY THEIR RESTLESS LONGING WITH THE THINGS OF THE WORLD AND PRAISE OF MEN; BUT WHEN ALL WAS GAINED, THEY FOUND THAT THEY HAD TOILED ONLY TO REACH A BROKEN CISTERN, FROM WHICH THEY COULD NOT QUENCH THEIR THIRST. JESUS KNEW THE WANTS OF THE SOUL.

POMP, RICHES, AND HONOR CANNOT SATISFY THE HEART (P. 454). PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO THE HEAVENLY FEAST OF TABERNACLES: WILL PRACTICE THE PRINCIPLE OF GRATITUDE. WILL RIGHTLY UNDERSTAND AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE UNIVERSAL

CHARACTER OF GODS KINGDOM. PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO THE HEAVENLY FEAST OF TABERNACLES: WILL UNDERSTAND THE TEMPORAL CHARACTER OF OUR LIFE HERE. WILL PRACTICE THE PRINCIPLES OF PEACE, JOY, AND BEAUTY. WILL BECOME THEMSELVES

STREAMS OF LIVING WATER. MIXING THE FLOWING WINE AND WATER FLOWING WINE REPRESENTS FLOWING WATER REPRESENTS

SALVATION REGENERATION DEATH OF JESUS NEW LIFE SHED BLOOD

QUENCHED THIRST SYMBOL OF THE SYMBOL OF THE POWER OF SACRIFICE OF THE SAVIOR HOLY SPIRIT DRINKING DAILY FROM THE LIVING WATER WE WILL BE ABLE TO OFFER LIVING WATER TO

THE DEAD SEA OF OUR WORLD IF WE DIE DAILY IN CHRIST AND RISE AGAIN DAILY IN CHRIST FROM WHAT SPRINGS DO I DRINK? BROKEN CISTERNS SEWAGE WATER LIVING WATER THE WORLD IS DYING TODAY FROM

THIRSTINESS, AND NOTHING CAN SATISFY THE LONGING OF HEARTS EXCEPT THE LIVING WATERS THAT CAN REGENERATE THE SOUL. THE POOR AND NEEDY SEARCH FOR WATER, BUT THERE IS NONE; THEIR TONGUES ARE PARCHED WITH THIRST. BUT I THE LORD WILL ANSWER THEM;

I, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, WILL NOT FORSAKE THEM. ISAIAH 41:17 I WILL MAKE RIVERS FLOW ON BARREN HEIGHTS, AND SPRINGS WITHIN THE VALLEYS. I WILL TURN DESERT INTO POOLS OF WATER, AND THE PARCHED GROUND INTO SPRINGS. ISAIAH 41:18
