Water Is Thicker Than Blood!

While He was still talking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak with Him. Then one said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.” But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in Heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” (Matt 12:46-50)

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Therefore, by their fruits you shall know them! Not every one that says unto Me: Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that do the will of My Father, which is in Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name? And in Your name have cast out devils? And in Your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them: I never knew you; depart from Me, you that work iniquity! Therefore, whosoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that hears these sayings of Mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it. (Matt 7:18-27)

Then said the woman of Samaria unto Him: How is it that you, being a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Yeshua answered and said unto her: If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that said to you, Give Me to drink! You would have asked of Him, and He would have given you living water! The woman said unto Him: Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. From where then have you that living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children and his cattle? Yeshua answered and said unto her: Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again, 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 4:9-14)

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Yeshua stood and cried, saying: If any man thirst, let him come unto Me and drink. He that believes on Me, as the scripture has said, “out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”. But this He spoke of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Yeshua was not yet glorified. (John 7:37-39)

Yeshua looked round about, and said unto His disciples: How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! And the disciples were astonished at His words. But Yeshua answered again, and said unto them: Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves: Who then can be saved? And Yeshua looking upon them said: With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible. Then Peter began to say unto Him: Lo, we have left all, and have followed You. And Yeshua answered and said: Verily I say unto you; there is no man that has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My sake, and the gospel’s: But he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions, and in the world to come eternal life. But many that are first shall be last, and the last first. (Mark 10:28-31)

A certain ruler asked Him, saying: Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? And Yeshua said unto him: Why do you call me good? None is good, save One; that is, God. You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery. Do not kill. Do not steal. Do not bear false witness. Honor your father and your mother. And he said: All these have I kept from my youth up! Now, when Yeshua heard these things, He said unto him: Yet you lack one thing; sell all that you have and distribute unto the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven. Then come and follow Me! But when he heard this, he was very sorrowful, for he was very rich. And when Yeshua saw that he was very sorrowful, He said: How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God! And they that heard it said: Who then can be saved? And He said: The things, which are impossible with men, are possible with God! Then Peter said: Lo, we have left all, and followed You. And He said unto them: Verily I say unto you; there is no man that has left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come, life everlasting. (Luke 18:18-30)
