Push, Separate, Gush Forth and become Fruitful

I’m pretty excited about this blog post because it comes after not much sleep, tons of things weighing on my mind and yet His Word brings revelation. This morning I am reading about a river in Eden and then I am seeing a prophecy before my eyes– 4 rivers splitting and coming from one river. Now  in studying Hebrew we learn a lot by what the names of people mean but also places and strangely enough RIVERS!

“And a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it divided and became four riverheads. The name of the first is PISHON, it is the one surrounding the entire land of Ḥawilah, WHERE THERE IS GOLD. And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium is there, and the shoham stone.   And the name of the second river is GIHON, it is the one surrounding the entire land of Kush. And the name of the third river is HIDDEQEL, it is the one which goes toward the east of Ashshur. And the fourth river is the EUPHRATES. GENESIS 2:10-14 KJV.

Pishon is a word that means “PUSH” or “spring about”. This river more than likely was a spring and then formed a delta… The next river was called the Gihon, which comes from the word gia which means TO BURST FORTH! I want to repeat that, “BURST FORTH”. World book and other sources refer to it as GUSHING!

Now we come to the third river, the Hiddeqel or the modern name Tigres. This river is very interesting and is derived from the verb “meaning to PRICK, to STING, to SPLIT, to SEPARATE. Other words to describe the meaning of this river are “Swift, sharp, rapid.

Last and as the old adage goes, not least, comes the river that we all need prophetically the most, The Euphrates. According to Abarim publications, PARAT means FRUITFUL!

“The Euphrates is the single most dominant river of the Bible, even more, DOMINANT than the Nile…In the book of Genesis, it is called Parat.  The name the Euphrates means The Good Parat; Bountiful. Jones’ Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names translates with Fruitfulness.

DID YOU CATCH THAT? BOUNTIFUL AND FRUITFULNESS.

Now we have to begin with the first river and then put all these definitions together and see what they form? First, we had the Pishon, THE PUSH… This journey from flesh to spirit, this journey from a dry thirsty land takes effort, a push, and a spring that will BURST FORTH and separate. There is GOLD there in that place of birthing and salvation. The Euphrates MEANS TO SPLIT and SEPARATE. We must separate ourselves from the flesh and the world.

“Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. WATER WILL GUSH FORTH IN THE WILDERNESS and streams in the desert.” Isaiah 35:6 NIV. You say when Bonnie? When will this blessing happen? Well, first we must read the verses before and after. “Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution, he will come to save you.” Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped.” Isaiah 35:3-5 NIV.

Yes, we must strengthen our prayer life and intimacy and TRUST YAHWEH, for he will come! THE NEXT VERSE MADE ME SO EXCITED! Isaiah 35:8-10 say this, “And a highway will be there; it will be called THE WAY OF HOLINESS. The UNCLEAN will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor will any ferocious beast get up on it; they will not be found there. But ONLY THE REDEEMED WILL WALK THERE and the RANSOMED of the LORD will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.” NIV.

By the way, that word Ransomed means to obtain THE RELEASE OF A (PRISONER) by making a payment demanded. Thank you, Jesus/Yeshua!

“The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.” Isaiah 51:3 NIV.

One of my friends had me thinking about water yesterday. She said that while having bible study a young man asked her WHAT LIVING WATER WAS. Do you remember the woman at the well who had a zillion husbands (actually five) and the man she was living with wasn’t her husband?  She walked miles to lug heavy pitchers of water back to her home from the community well. Jesus/Yeshua said this, “But whosoever drinks 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.” John 4:14 AKJV.

“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, OUT OF HIS BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER.” John 7:38 KJV.

If you have ever tasted this water you never forget it. It’s a refreshing that I have experienced even in a time of great sickness, homelessness, and trials. You see when you are living and walking in the spirit nothing can upset you. Nothing bothers you because this joy, this spring of water gushing forth splits and separates you from all the world.

The world melts away. The debt, the job, the relationships that are strained, the loss, the weariness all melts away in the river.

The woman at the well began to get religious with Yeshua/Jesus. She began to tell him about how to worship and where to worship and who has the best doctrine and denominational teachings. She says, “Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”  John 4:20 NIV. Yeah, after he calls her out on having five husbands she tells him that she can see he is a prophet but she and her people worshipped on the mountain. Did you hear what she said? She said her and her people worshipped! Yes indeed, she knew about worship and what the correct form OF WORSHIP WAS. She insisted that she knew the right mountain to do it on (SARCASM). Yeshua sets her straight.

He say’s to her, “You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, FOR SALVATION IS FROM THE JEWS. But the hour is coming, and is now here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. John 4:22-23 ESV. I’ve heard many Christians voice their concern about the Jews making it since they don’t believe Jesus/Yeshua has come yet. However, in the scripture above Jesus/Yeshua himself stated, “Salvation is from the Jews.”

How would you like it if Yeshua/Jesus looked at you and said, “You Pentecostal’s worship what you do not know or you Baptist or you Catholics? Ouch.

The Father isn’t seeking just any kind of worshipper, but one who has the truth. Salvation comes from the Jews. When Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread begin in April, become like HIS people. Get rid of the holidays and incorporate the days Jesus/ Yeshua and His disciples and apostles were still keeping in the New Testament over 30 years after He had ascended.  Paul said, “Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” 1st Corinthians 5:8 NASB.

GET RID OF THE YEAST and watch HIS sky, HIS timeline, HIS clock, drink His water, LIVING WATER THAT GUSHES FORTH…PUSH, PRAY, STRENGTHEN FEEBLE HANDS THAT HANG DOWN AND THE FEEBLE KNEES…Christianity must rethink being a religion without Jewishness… We must split from being on our own mountain we created to worship on. Like this dry THIRSTY woman at the well, we must come down from our prideful hills. Do Gentiles get their own olive tree? Or are they grafted into the natural branches… PUSH, GUSH FORTH, SEPARATE from the world AND BECOME FRUITFUL!

  1. Bonnie: This is probably one of the top two-three pieces you have written since I have known you. Its message is timely, and powerfully stated. To draw the comparison between the woman at the well and Christianity is an inspiration, a true Word from God, I have no doubt. That woman’s ancestors were the children of Ishmael. They had a form of truth without the substance of it. Is that not what our Christianity far and wide has mostly become? Many of us have ‘a form godliness without the power thereof.’ Oh, for more eyes to see what has been written and ears to hear this life and death message of choice! That the people who call upon YHVH and his Son Yaweh would tear their hearts instead of their garments!

    • I don’t remember how I found this blog but I was blessed by it. There is so much inspiration and wisdom in it; a great way to start reflecting in preparation for Holy Week. Thank you very much and may God bless you abundantly.

  2. I just read this a month late. You are a wonderful writer in the spirit. I feel you squeezing out
    the word, and dripping it on the thirsty. It reaches us as a strong concentrate that nourishes us
    but needs to digest slowly or it will be passed out too fast. Thank you for being faithful. I hope you are physically feeling a lot better.

  3. Thank you all for the feed back. It can get weary writing blogs. Praying over blogs and getting no response… I believe the Lord wants us to be separate from the world and Marion what you wrote touched my soul…love you lady!
