I heard, “I AM turning your desert into POOLS, Heavenly Portals into My Presence. Dive into the Deep things of God!”
And I saw in a vision a Believer stepping into what looked like a “puddle” of beautiful blue water. It was not a natural pool, but it was supernatural.
And I heard it was a HEAVENLY PORTAL. That as you go through your day, and as you think upon Jesus and the things of God, times of refreshing shall come that will transport you by the Spirit of God into His Presence.
The Kingdom of Heaven is always at Hand, but only when we take our mind off of worldly things, and look to Jesus. We have 24/7 access to the Heavenly Places of the Holy Spirit because He lives in us.
And the The Holy Spirit impressed upon me it was like the pools in the Bible that were natural, yet when Jesus approached them they became supernatural places of healing.
The people got transported from the natural visible things of the world to the invisible supernatural realms of Glory. And they were refreshed and healed, mind, body and soul. And Father reminded me of the Old Testament verses that speak of POOLS of water in the wilderness.
They speak not only of the natural but the deeper things of God. Here is one example: Psalm 107:35
“He turns a desert into POOLS of water and a dry land into flowing SPRINGS.”
Gives a whole new meaning to these verses, amen?
“Beloved. Step into the Pools of Living Water. As I sent an Angel to stir the waters of the Pool of Bethesda, (House of Grace) so I AM stirring the Living Waters within you, My Child.
Deep is calling unto deep. The poor and needy seek water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst.
I, The LORD, will answer you; I, Yahweh, will not forsake you. I will open rivers on the barren heights, and fountains in the middle of the valleys.
I will turn the desert into a pool of water, and the dry land into a flowing spring. I AM He who leads you beside the Still Waters.
I AM the Lamb in the center of the Throne, your Shepherd who leads you to springs of Living Water where your God will wipe away every tear from your eyes.
You were not made to wander through the desert, but to enter the Deep things of your God, not only in the future but now in this life.
Hear the Spirit calling, My Child. Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the Waters of Life and step in.
Your LORD will always guide you; I will satisfy you in a sun-scorched land and strengthen your frame. And you will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
Here, the lame leap like deer and the mute tongue shouts for joy. Even the hardest of places shall be turned into fountains.
For Waters are gushing forth in the wilderness, and Streams in the desert. It is My Way, Beloved, Deep is calling unto deep.
Come, Beloved, Step into the Portals of Living Water; Step into My Fountain of Life, by the Spirit.
Come to the House of Grace by the New and Living Way. Come, Beloved, feast on the abundance of My House, and I shall give you drink from My River of Delights.
I AM the Fountain of Life; in My Light you shall see Light. Dive into the Deep things of your God!”
“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul longs after You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, the living God. When shall I come and appear in God’s presence?” Psalm 42:1-2.
“Deep calls to deep in the roar of Your waterfalls; all Your breakers and waves have rolled over me.” Psalm 42:7.
“The LORD will always guide you; He will satisfy you in a sun-scorched land and strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58:11.
“until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high. Then the desert will be an orchard, and the orchard will seem like a forest.” Isaiah 32:15.
“Then the lame will leap like a deer and the mute tongue will shout for joy. For waters will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. The parched ground will become a POOL, the thirsty land springs of water. In the haunt where jackals once lay, there will be grass and reeds and papyrus. And there will be a highway called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not travel it — only those who walk in the Way — and fools will not stray onto it.…” Isaiah 35:6-8.
“The poor and needy seek water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. I, The LORD, will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. I will open rivers on the barren heights, and fountains in the middle of the valleys. I will turn the desert into a pool of water, and the dry land into flowing spring,” Isaiah 41:17-18.
…Psalm 104:10 He sends forth springs in the valleys; they flow between the mountains.
…Psalm 105:41 He opened a rock, and water gushed out; it flowed like a river in the desert.
…Psalm 114:8 who turned the rock into a pool, the flint into a fountain of water!
…John 7:38 Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said: ‘Streams of living water will flow from within him.’” 39He was speaking about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. For the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.…
“Repent (Change your mind and turn around) therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, 20 that TIMES OF REFRESHING may come from the presence of The LORD, and that He may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus.” …Acts 3:19.
“and said to him, “Go, wash in the POOL of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing.” John 9:7.
“Your neck is like a tower of ivory, Your eyes like the POOLS in Heshbon (meaning “to think”) By the gate of Bath-rabbim; (in the gates of the “daughter of many”)” Song of Solomon 7:4.
“Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, (house of GRACE, mercy) having FIVE porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.” John 5:2-8.
