When it comes to spiritual things, it is very important to avoid man’s words, man’s ideas, man’s agenda, anything that is man based. The only thing man knows, that is true, is what comes from God. All are allowed their opinion, but an opinion is not a fact of truth. We need to prove all things. On this site, I sometimes express an opinion, but my purpose is to point you to the source of truth, to the fountain of living waters.

 they have forsaken me [Christ] the fountain of living waters Jeremiah 2:13

And, right here we have another Bible word spiritually defined. The word is “fountain.” Next time you are reading in your Bible (this only works correctly in the KJV) and find the word “fountain,” you can plug in this definition and see if it makes good sense. Here is one example.

the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew. Deuteronomy 33:28

I believe most will agree that Christ is the fountain of Jacob; this not being a physical fountain. Here are more that work well with this spiritual meaning plugged in.

    For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. Psalm 36:9
    O Lord, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters. Jeremiah 17:13
    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim. Joel 3:18
    In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. Zech. 13:1
    And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. Rev. 21:6

So Christ is defined as a fountain; he is also defined as a rock. I’m sure you will remember this one.

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Psalm 95:1

Now that you have a handle on the definition of rock, try it out on these verses. I have included one that just will not work. I am sure you will notice it. But this is how God intended for us to learn his word, by using the Bible to define itself; it is the hidden mystery, by which, whosoever will, may grow in grace and understand the mystery of godliness.

Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. Deut. 32:18
    For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. Deut. 32:31
    There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. 1 Samuel 2:2
    And Abner said again to Asahel, Turn thee aside from following me: wherefore should I smite thee to the ground? how then should I hold up my face to Joab thy brother? 2 Samuel 2:22
    The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God. 2 Samuel 23:3
    I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? Psalm 42:9
    And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer. Psalm 78:35
    O Lord, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return. Jeremiah 5:3
    And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1 Cor. 10:4

And to return the full circle….

Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters. Psalms 114:8

God Bless your Study
