This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with (in) the water only, but with (in) the water and with (in) the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify:
the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
1 John 5:6- 8 NASB
This is quite interesting and may put a new light on just what Jesus did for mankind.
WATER – Now a man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer and deposit them outside the camp in a clean place, and the congregation of the sons of Israel shall keep it as water to remove impurity;it is purification from sin.
Numbers 19:9 NASB
BLOOD/WATER – For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Hebrews 9:13-14 NASB
But one of the soldiers pierced His (Jesus) side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
John 19:34 NASB
Praise to You, Lord Jesus for Your perfect, unblemished sacrifice to Your Father by which we are reconciled to serve the living God! And thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit who testifies to this truth because He is the truth. Always present are You God – Father, Son, Holy Spirit – when Jesus was baptized – “After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.” Ever present today for believers – “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.”
How awesome it is to know, worship and love You God. Praise to God, three in One!! Amen.
John 15:26/Matthew 3:16-17/John 16:13-15 NASB
