God’s promised deliverance of Israel comes about through faith in the One they have pierced. This is true for Jew and Gentile. On the Day of the Lord Jesus, God opened up a fountain for cleansing. This age is His Day!
“On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.”
This passage has so many pointers to Jesus, and this is such a wonderful one!
Jesus layers over this passage, where He speaks of living water in John chapter 4, “… But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
He is the living water, alive and pure, which wells up in us to eternal life (John 4).
His blood cleanses us from sin and uncleanness (1 John 1:7).
This is the good news. That Jesus saves us FROM our sin TO eternal life.
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
- Lord Above,
Thank You that Jesus is a cleansing fountain, the living water – Thank You that He saves us from our sin and to eternal life.
