Giving a Drink for Good Health

“Give, and it shall be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put in your bosom.  For with the same measure that you give, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38

Much of what I am going to share with you of how good and loving our God is came to my understanding after the fact of God blessing me because of my simple obedience to respond to His having me give someone a drink of water in His name.  He did not tell me that He would bless me if I did such and such.  The above verse out of Luke 6 had been given to me by my church when I was young but I did not look at it and expect God to pay me back in abundance in my giving.

Praise God that He is faithful to keep track of what we do and it is His joy and delight to bless us for our willingness to give anything in His  name.  Of course the more faith we personally have the more we will enjoy seeing our loving God look after us from head to toe.  This head to toe statement is truly what I  want to share with you.  All of us want to feel better from head to toe and the good news is that Jesus paid it all with His blood so that we can be blessed from top to bottom.

Ruby and I were living in a small Jewish town up in the hills of Samaria.  We had built a miniature golf and deli in Ariel and it was a real joy to endeavor to share the love of Jesus with the folks.  We had raised 4 children and they had given us 20 grandchildren so we loved to work with young people.  Our mini golf had two schools near by and the kids would come into the deli after school to get some of our goodies but always they wanted a drink of water.  We literally poured  out thousands of cups of water over the 7 years we lived in the land.  The Lord had quickened the following verse to us one day.

“For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”  Mark 9:41

The following testimonies of God rewarding me for a few cups of water given in His name is awesome.  One year we had come home for a few months during the winter months and when it was time for us to return to Israel I found myself with a greatly swollen right knee.  I managed to get on the plane to fly to Ariel and my knee was worse when we landed in Tel Aviv.  The Holy Spirit told me that I needed to fast some just drinking the water in Israel.  By God’s grace and mercy I did and limped around the mini golf working  with the local folks and one of the things we did each day was  pouring cups of water out to the kids.  In fourteen days the pain and swelling was all gone and has never returned over the years.  Glory!

Ruby and I both were so blessed while we lived in Israel.  The only doctor we saw was a dentist who worked on our teeth a little bit.  We were both in our mid 60’s when we built the mini golf and the local citizens were constantly telling us that they were amazed to see us function the way we did.  We gave thanks each day to the Lord for His love and good health he gave us.  The older I get the more I see that we need to give Him thanks for rewarding us for the deeds we do in His name.  What I have to share with you will produce great blessings for you based on scripture that He has made  alive to us as we endeavored to obey Him on a daily basis.

As we  prepared to come back home the Lord told me that He wanted us to bring out a bottle of water to the world and tell them that He loves them.  I found myself one day in Jericho in a water plant owned and operated  by Coca Cola and the manager was telling me the water they bottled is the water that I should take out to the world.  He was an Arab Muslim telling me about Jesus drinking from the spring they bottle.  Wow!   It is the same spring that Elisha healed that is recorded in Kings.

“Then the men of the city said to Elisha, ‘Please notice, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees; but the water is bad, and the ground barren.’  And he said, ‘Bring me a new bowl, and put salt in it (the sign of God’s purifying power).’  So they brought it to him.  Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, ‘Thus says the Lord: I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’  So the water remains healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke.”  2 Kings 2:19-22

So, by God’s grace we have been importing this water since 2008.  Naturally I wanted to hear the plan that God has for distributing the water and His primary purpose for bringing out this awesome water to the world.  The Lord spoke to me that if I would fast for awhile and drink this water He would show me what He wanted done.  Yes, it takes a double portion of His  grace and mercy for any of us to fast.  After 10 days I called an old friend here in Waco who taught at Baylor University for 38 years and has written over 30 books on the blood and nutrition.

Dr. Richard (Dick) Couey is professor emeritus of health sciences at Baylor.  His areas of specialty are human physiology, human anatomy, biochemistry, sports medicine, and nutrition.  He is a former member of the President Commission of Physical Fitness and sports, and served as exercise physiology consultant for the U.S. Olympic team.  He has spoken in more than three hundred churches throughout the U.S. and internationally on “Why Christians Should Care For Their Temple (body).”

Dick had been given some of my water by one of my son’s and when I called him he told me that he had been wanting to talk with me about the water.  Over the years Dick has examined hundreds of people by taking a drop of blood and putting it under his high powered microscope.  He was really surprised when he looked at  my blood and told me that he had never seen any blood any better than mine.  I was 74 at the time and over the next few years he says the same thing each time he looks at my blood.

Dick has done a lot of research on our water and tested it several times.  He feels that it is probably the best water in the world.  This spring is just a few  miles from the Dead Sea which is the lowest spot on the earth.  Doctors in Europe send some of their patients to Israel and have them soak in the Dead Sea so their body will absorb some of the 72 minerals in the Dead Sea.  Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies.

A local doctor who teaches at Baylor was telling me recently that he and his wife and children have been drinking our water for four years now and for the past three years none of them have had to go to a doctor for any kind of treatment.   His wife gives a lot of our water away each month and I believe the Lord is rewarding them for giving a drink of water out to the world.  Yes, give and it shall be given!

Somehow I pulled the Meniscus in my left knee and the pain was awful.  I ended up with two MD’s giving me x-ray’s and an MRI and advising me that they could do an orthopedic surgery on my knee and most possibly causing it to not be as painful after a period of time.  When I left the office I felt a strong impression from the Lord that if I would believe Him and trust the water that He has blessed my knee would be okay.  I began to visualize the water going into the trillion blood cells of my body and going to the meniscus as a lubricant and healer.  I then  did what the people did in soaking in the Dead Sea.  I  was amazed as I put this water on my knee and watch my skin absorb the water.  Within a week all of the pain had left and it has not come back.  Glory!

Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:34 that if we give people things they need which include a drink of water we will be blessed of the Father, and we will inherit the kingdom prepared for us from the foundation of the world.  He actually tells us in verse 40 that when we do these things we are giving them to Him.  Can you imagine how the Samaritan woman felt in realizing she had given her Savior a drink of water.  We can join the ranks of believers by sharing a drink of water along with being blessed by the water for our own bodies.

You can become a distributor of His water by just giving a few bottles out to your family and friends.  Water is a non controversial item that all people  drink.  I have never had anyone turn down a bottle of water over the years.  The following verses out of Isaiah 58 are awesome.

“Is this not  the fast that I have chosen:  To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?  Is it not to share your bread (and water) with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; When you see the naked, that you cover Him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh?

Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go forth before you;  the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.  Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;  You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am’.”  Isaiah 58:6-9

Again, one of the great rewards for us today from the Lord is to cause our bodies to respond to His love that He brought forth in His resurrection life.  He carried all of our sins and sickness to the cross and came forth in a newness of life.  One of His great desires is for us to go forth with streams of living water flowing out of us out to the world.  It is His desire to send us forth to the world in the same way that the Father sent Him.
