Greetings my fellow servants in the matchless name of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is with much joy that we here at Flip the Scripts render God’s heart and mind through the blessed ministry of the Holy Spirit of teaching without walls.

This month’s topic: The Wells of Salvation is an inspired discourse filled with encouragement and hope as well as many incentives to draw closer to the Lord and to press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  I am excited about this Jesus how about you. Let us begin.

Please be advised: The contents of some scriptures will be pulled out of its original context to be made applicable to our subject, thoughts and insights.”

ISAIAH 12:3: Therefore, with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. KJV

Someone in their thinking right now may be saying, “I didn’t know that there are wells in salvation.” Let us reply to your thinking. Matthew 6:33a quotes Jesus as saying; “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness:”   Let’s elaborate for a bit. 

Jesus admonishes us to seek first the kingdom of God. The “But” in verse 33 indicates that something was said prior to the admonishment. Jesus was addressing the concerns of the natural life’s resources of food, clothing, shelter and finances. He was encouraging us to not burden ourselves as children of God with worries for provisions for this life.  Jesus assuredly advised that our father in heaven would supply provisions for us even as he daily supplies for the animal kingdom that doesn’t work jobs, that doesn’t toil and labor to be fed. He stated factually that even as the lilies of the fields are so beautifully arrayed toiling not so shall we– his children be clothed.

Well Pastor/Teacher if what you just said is true then why do we need to seek the Kingdom of God?

I am thrilled that you asked.  The kingdom of God is not food and raiment or clothing. The kingdom of God is God. There are two definitions we will render and a few passages of scriptures supporting our statement. One amazing definitions of Kingdom that we found is: the spiritual reign or authority of God. So then…. reading verse 33a using the definition it would sound pretty much like this: Seek ye first the spiritual reign of God. The word and means in addition to. So then verse 33a would read: Seek ye first the spiritual reign of God in addition to his righteousness. God is sovereign which means he possesses supreme and or ultimate power therefore wherever God is…. his kingdom is.
