The water is an essential factor for our physical life as above article. This is the same condition for our spiritual life. As man would die because of the 10% lack of water, so our spiritual life will not be guaranteed without the water of life. Then, where is the source of the water of life?…
Bible leads us to there…
In the Bible, the water of life refers to the truth of life through which we can have eternal life (Amos 8:11.) Only God has authority to give us the water of life. It was Jehovah who was the spring of living water in the age of the Father.
O LORD, the hope of Israel, all who forsake you will be put to shame. Those who turn away from you will be written in the dust because they have forsaken the LORD, the spring of living water. (Jeremiah 17:13)
However, Jesus was the source of the water of life in the age of the Son.
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” (John 4:10)
Then, who is the spring of the living water in this last age of the Holy Spirit?
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Revelation 22:17)
In the age of the Father and in the age of the Son, there was only one God who was the source of the water of life respectively. But in the age of the Holy Spirit, two Gods — the Spirit and the bride — give us the water of life. The Holy Father, the Holy Son and the Holy Spirit are God in the Trinity. Who is the bride? Some claim that the bride is ‘the saints.’ But only God can give us the water of life.
He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son. (Revelation 21:6-7)
It is our God who gives to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. Therefore, it’s a false claim that the bride is the saints. Then, who is the bride who gives us the water of life in the last days.
One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. (Revelation 21:9-10)
It’s written that the bride or the wife of the Lamb, who gives us the water of life, was Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven. Heavenly Mother has not appeared out of the blue, suddenly, all at once. The Bible testifies to God the Father and God the Mother from the first Chapter.
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:26-27)
Male and female were created in the image of God, which proves that God the Father and God the Mother exist in God’s image. And in the last page of the Bible, it’s prophesied that the Spirit and the bride will give us the water of life. Obviously, the water of life cannot be found in the churches that do not know the Spirit and the bride in this age when the Spirit and the bride give us the water of life. The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) believes in God the Father and God the Mother who have come as the Spirit and the bride according to the prophecies of the Bible, and preaches the truth of eternal life or the water of life.
