The Woman at the Well ==>>

John 4:1-45 The Voice (VOICE)

4 The picture was becoming clear to the Pharisees that Jesus had gained a following much larger than that of John the Baptist, the wandering prophet. Now He could see that the Pharisees were beginning to plot against Him. 2 This was because His disciples were busy ritually cleansing many new disciples through baptism,[a] 3 He chose to leave Judea where most Pharisees lived and return to a safer location in Galilee. 4This was a trip that would take them through Samaria.

For Jews in Israel, Samaria is a place to be avoided. Before Solomon's death 1,000 years earlier, the regions of Samaria and Judea were part of a united Israel. After the rebellion that divided the kingdom, Samaria became a hotbed of idol worship. The northern kings made alliances that corrupted the people by introducing foreign customs and strange gods. They even had the nerve to build a temple to the True God on Mt. Gerizim to rival the one in Jerusalem. By the time the twelve are traveling with Jesus, it has long been evident that the Samaritans have lost their way. By marrying outsiders, they have polluted the land. Israel's Jews consider them to be half-breeds – mongrels – and the Jews know to watch out for them or else be bitten by temptation.

5-8 In a small Samaritan town known as Sychar, Jesus and His entourage stopped to rest at the historic well that Jacob gave his son Joseph. It was about noon when Jesus found a spot to sit close to the well while the disciples ventured off to find provisions. From His vantage, He watched as a Samaritan woman approached to draw some water. Unexpectedly He spoke to her. 
Jesus: Would you draw water, and give Me a drink?

Woman: 9 I cannot believe that You, a Jew, would associate with me, a Samaritan woman; much less ask me to give You a drink.

Jews, you see, have no dealings with Samaritans. 
Also, a man never approaches a woman like this in public. Jesus is breaking accepted social barriers with this confrontation.

Jesus: 10 You don't know the gift of God or who is asking you for a drink of this water from Jacob's well. Because if you did, you would have asked Him for something greater; and He would have given you the living water.

Woman: 11 Sir, You sit by this deep well a thirsty man without a bucket in sight. Where does this living water come from? 12 Are You claiming superiority to our father Jacob who labored long and hard to dig and maintain this well so that he could share clean water with his sons, grandchildren, and cattle?

Jesus: 13 Drink this water, and your thirst is quenched only for a moment. You must return to this well again and again. 14I offer water that will become a wellspring within you that gives life throughout eternity. You will never be thirsty again.

Woman: 15 Please, Sir, give me some of this water, so I'll never be thirsty and never again have to make the trip to this well.

Jesus: 16 Then bring your husband to Me.

Woman: 17-18 I do not have a husband. 
Jesus: Technically you are telling the truth. But you have had five husbands and are currently living with a man you are not married to.

Woman: 19 Sir, it is obvious to me that You are a prophet. 20Our fathers worshiped here on this mountain, but Your people say that Jerusalem is the only place for all to worship. Which is it?

Jesus: 21-24 Woman, I tell you that neither is so. Believe this: a new day is coming – in fact, it's already here – when the importance will not be placed on the time and place of worship but on the truthful hearts of worshipers. You worship what you don't know while we worship what we do know, for God's salvation is coming through the Jews. The Father is spirit, and He is seeking followers whose worship is sourced in truth and deeply spiritual as well. Regardless of whether you are in Jerusalem or on this mountain, if you do not seek the Father, then you do not worship.

Woman: 25 These mysteries will be made clear by He who is promised, the Anointed One.

Jesus: 26 The Anointed is speaking to you. I am the One you have been looking for.

27 The disciples returned to Him and gathered around Him in amazement that He would openly break their customs by speaking to this woman, but none of them would ask Him what He was looking for or why He was speaking with her. 28The woman went back to the town, leaving her water pot behind. She stopped men and women on the streets and told them about what had happened.

Woman: 29 I met a stranger who knew everything about me. Come and see for yourselves; can He be the Anointed One?

30 A crowd came out of the city and approached Jesus. 31During all of this, the disciples were urging Jesus to eat the food they gathered.

Jesus: 32 I have food to eat that you know nothing about.

Disciples (to one another): 33 Is it possible someone else has brought Him food while we were away?

Jesus: 34 I receive My nourishment by serving the will of the Father who sent Me and completing His work. 35 You have heard others say, "Be patient; we have four more months to wait until the crops are ready for the harvest." I say, take a closer look and you will see that the fields are ripe and ready for the harvest. 36 The harvester is collecting his pay, harvesting fruit ripe for eternal life. So even now, he and the sower are celebrating their fortune. 37 The saying may be old, but it is true: "One person sows, and another reaps." 38 I sent you to harvest where you have not labored; someone else took the time to plant and cultivate, and you feast on the fruit of their labor.

39 Meanwhile, because one woman shared with her neighbors how Jesus exposed her past and present, the village of Sychar was transformed – many Samaritans heard and believed. 40The Samaritans approached Jesus and repeatedly invited Him to stay with them, so He lingered there for two days on their account. 41 With the words that came from His mouth, there were many more believing Samaritans. 42 They began their faith journey because of the testimony of the woman beside the well; but when they heard for themselves, they were convinced the One they were hearing was and is God's Anointed, the Liberating King, sent to rescue the entire world.

43-45 After two days of teaching and conversation, Jesus proceeded to Galilee where His countrymen received Him with familiar smiles. After all, they witnessed His miracle at the feast in Jerusalem; but Jesus understood and often quoted the maxim: "No one honors a hometown prophet."

Don't Let Your Past Rob You ==>> Philippians 3:13-14

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Are you living a life of regrets thinking, "If only…"? "If only I had that college education…If only I had married the right girl…If only I had taken up the other job…If only I had not made that stupid mistake…"

Is your past robbing you of the joy of today? Then forget your past!

You might say, "But Pastor Prince, you do not know what I have done in the past!"

Consider Paul. If the devil had anything to bring against Paul, it would be reminders of how he had persecuted the early church and caused the deaths of many, including Stephen, the first Christian martyr.

Paul had done horrendous things that were hard for him to forget. But he had such a revelation of God's awesome forgiveness that he could say, "forgetting those things which are behind…I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus".

Beloved, God has forgiven you of all your sins. He has completely forgiven you and declared, "Your sins and lawless deeds, I will remember no more." (Hebrews 10:17)

Like Paul, you can forget your past, the wrongs you have done and the hurts you have caused others or been through yourself. God can take the tears of yesterday and transform them into the miracles of tomorrow. He can restore to you in all abundance what you have lost. He can cause all things, even the painful events of your past, to work together for your good. (Romans 8:28)

God's Word says, "The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard." (Isaiah 58:8) His glory will cover your past. Wherever you go, His glory covers your past. It is no longer the same past that you know of because His glory has descended on it. Your past is past. It has been wiped out. It is gone! So don't let your past rob you of today's joy any longer!

Proverbs 8 The Voice (VOICE)

8 Isn't Lady Wisdom calling? Listen; don't you hear the voice of understanding crying out? 2 She's taken her stand at the highest place in the city, at the crossroads where everyone can see her. 3 There, and at the gates, at the entrance to the city, right in front of the city doors she cries out: 
Lady Wisdom: O people! I am calling to you; I have a message for all humanity. 5 You gullible people, acquire insight. You naive ones, cultivate a heart that truly understands. 6 Listen, for I am about to tell you of unparalleled excellence and beauty; what I am about to say will set things right. 7 I will only speak the truth; I despise evil, so it will not pass through my lips. Everything I say promotes justice; not one word is crooked, and nothing is distorted. 9 Each and every word is straight talk to perceptive people, upright and honest to knowledge-seekers. 10 Accept my correction as being more valuable than your prized possession, authentic knowledge more valuable than pure gold. 
11 You see, no gem is more precious than Lady Wisdom- your most extravagant desire doesn't come close to her. 
12 Lady Wisdom: I make my home with prudence; I obtain knowledge and sound judgment. 13 If you respect the Eternal, you will grow to despise evil. I despise wretched, vile talk and ways of pride and arrogance. 14 Good counsel is mine, and also true wisdom. I am understanding, and strength belongs to me. 15 It's because of me that kings wield power and authorities decree what is right. 16 It's because of me that leaders and their agents govern and all judge according to what is right. 17 I love those who love me; those who search hard for me will find me. 18 Riches and honor are the benefit of following me; so are lasting wealth and justice. 19 My reward is better than gold, even the purest gold; and my profit is greater than the highest quality silver. 20 I follow the way of right living. Follow me along the path to find justice; 21 I'm ready to meet those who love me, bestow true riches upon them, and fill up their lives until their treasuries overflow. 22 The Eternal created me; it happened when His work was beginning, one of His first acts long ago. 23 Before time He established me, before the earth saw its first sunrise. 24 I was born before the deep existed, before any springs poured out their water, 25 Before the mountains were placed on their foundations, before the hills rolled across the land- yes, before all this, I was brought forth. 26When the earth was yet unformed and the fields were not yet nestled beneath the wind- even before the first dust of the earth- 27 When He created the heavens, I was there. When He drew a circle in the deep, dividing the oceans and the sky, I was there. 28 I was there when He established the sky. I was there when the springs in the deep were fortified; 29 I witnessed Him lay down the shore as a boundary and put limits on the water And determine the foundations of the earth. 30 All this time I was close beside Him, a master craftsman. Every day I was His delightful companion, celebrating every minute in His presence, 31 Elated by the world He was making and all its fine creatures; I was especially pleased with humanity. 
32 So now listen to me, my children: those who live by my ways will find true happiness. 33 Pay attention to my guidance, dare to be wise, and don't disregard my teachings. 34 The one who listens to me, who carefully seeks me in everyday things and delays action until my way is apparent, that one will find true happiness. 35 For when he recognizes and follows me, he finds a peaceful and satisfying life and receives favor from the Eternal. 36 But heed my warning: the one who goes against me will only hurt himself, for all who despise me are playing with fire and courting death.

God's Word Breaks curses!!! ==>>

Numbers 22-24 The Voice (VOICE)

22 But they didn’t remain there. The Israelites traveled on to the Moabite plains, where they set up camp, just across the Jordan River,east of Jericho. 2 The Moabite Balak (Zippor’s son) knew about the Israelites’ victory over the Amorites and what they had done there.3 Actually, everyone in Moab was terrified of the Israelites. And Moab hated the Israelites, because there were so many of them!

Now we overhear this very unusual dialogue between the Moabite leader Balak and the respected prophet Balaam. While Balaam is not an Israelite, he has a healthy respect for the God of the Israelites. No matter how Balak tempts Balaam to curse the people of the Lord, God continues speaking to Balaam and frustrating Balak’s plans. Eventually it comes down to a not-so-dumb donkey instructing the great prophet. Both Balaam and Balak learn that God is not one to be toyed with. He can frustrate the plans of even the greatest kings and prophets.

Interestingly, a discovery was made in Jordan of an inscription containing prophecies of Balaam. He specialized in animal divination, slaughtering animals for his prophetic purposes. So Balaam was used to hearing God “speak” through animals, if not always so directly.

Moabites (to elders in the neighboring Midianite community): 4 Thisvoracious horde, these Israelites, will wipe us out without so much as a second thought. They’ll devour us and move through our land as a herd of hungry cows mows a field.

Balak (Zippor’s son), you’ll remember, was then the king of Moab. 5 In the face of this threat, he sent messengers to the famous prophetBalaam (Beor’s son), who lived in a town that belonged to his country on the Euphrates River called Pethor. Balak wanted the prophet to come to Moab.

Since the victories over Sihon and Og, the Israelites have gained a reputation of taking over. Their size and strength frighten the local inhabitants.

Moab’s Message (to Balaam): There is a group of people who came from Egypt and who have settled right near me. They cover the land with their numbers. 6 Come quickly, and curse them for me. There’s no other hope that I have of defeating so many of them and driving the rest away. They’re too strong. But I know that whomever you bless is blessed, and whomever you curse is cursed.

7 So the messengers went—elders, actually, from both Moab and Midian—with money in hand, to pay the prophet to come back with them and curse the Israelites. They gave him Balak’s message.

Balaam (to the messengers): 8 It’s been a long trip for you. Spend the night, and I’ll give you the prophecy the Eternal tells me.

So the Moabite and Midianite elders stayed overnight with Balaam. 9 But God came in the night to Balaam and questioned him.

Eternal One (to Balaam): Who are these people staying with you?

Balaam: 10 Messengers. Balak, the king of Moab and Zippor’s son, sent them to ask me for help on their behalf. 11 He says that a certain people, coming from Egypt, seem to be taking over the land. He wants me to curse those people for him so he can fight them and make the survivors leave.

Eternal One: 12 Don’t do it. The people whom Balak wants you to curse are already blessed.

13 So first thing in the morning, Balaam confronted Balak’s elders with the news.

Balaam: You’ll have to go back to your land without me. The Eternal has prohibited me from returning with you.

14 The Moabite contingent returned and told Balak that Balaam wouldn’t come. 15 But Balak wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. He sent another, bigger contingent of even more highly esteemed men to solicit Balaam’s help.

Balak’s Second Message (to Balaam): 16 Don’t let anything stop you from coming to Moab; 17 there’s a lot in it for you—whatever you desire—and I’ll make sure you are treated with the greatest honors. Just, please, come and curse these people for me!

Balaam (to Balak’s messengers): 18 Even if Balak gave me everything he has, riches of silver and gold in his house, I simply couldn’t do it. It is impossible for me to say anything less or greater than what the Eternal One, my God, directs me to say. 19 But, listen, why don’t you spend the night, and I’ll let you know whatever else the Eternal might tell me in the meantime.

20 Again, God came to Balaam in the night and spoke with him.

Eternal One (to Balaam): If these men have indeed come to get you, go ahead. Go with them, but do only what I tell you to do.

21 So when morning came, Balaam got his donkey ready. He set out with the Moabite elders. 22 Nevertheless, God was angry that Balaam was going. He sent His own messenger as an adversary to stand in Balaam’s way, blocking the prophet’s path. Now Balaam was riding on his donkey, and he had two servants too. 23 But it was the donkey who saw the Eternal’s messenger standing in the road with a sword in his hand, drawn and ready. The donkey went off the road and into the field, and Balaam, not seeing the messenger as his donkey had, hit the beast to drive it back onto the road; 24 but then the messenger of the Eternal stood in the narrow walkway separating two vineyards, and there was a wall on either side. 25 Spooked by the Eternal’s messenger, the donkey pressed herself against one of the walls, trapping Balaam’s foot. Balaam hit her again. 26 The Eternal’s messenger got ahead of them again and faced them in a narrow spot where they had no way to avoid him. 27 This time, the donkey, seeing the Eternal’s messenger, just lay down, Balaam still sitting on top. Balaam was furious, and he beat the beast with a rod.28 But the Eternal One gave the donkey the ability to speak.

Donkey (to Balaam): What have I done to you that you would hit me three times?

Balaam: 29 You’ve made me look stupid! If I’d had a sword, I’d have killed you by now!

Donkey: 30 Aren’t I the very same donkey you’ve always ridden? Have I ever been disloyal or hurt you?

Balaam: No.

31 At that point, the Eternal opened the eyes of Balaam to see His messenger standing in the road, sword drawn. Balaam bowed low to the ground, lying with his face in the dirt.

Eternal One’s Messenger: 32 Why were you so hard on your donkey, beating her these three times? I came here as an adversary against you because I do not approve of the direction you’re taking, in more ways than one.[a] 33 Your donkey did the right thing. She saw me and turned away all three times. This donkey saved your life. Perhaps I would have killed you on the spot and let her live.

Balaam (to the messenger): 34 I confess I was wrong, but I didn’t know you were there, trying to block my way. Now, please, if you don’t want me to go any farther, then let me go back home.

Eternal One’s Messenger: 35 No, go ahead with this Moabite escort, but only say what I tell you to say.

So Balaam traveled on with Balak’s men.

36 When they neared the very edge of Moabite territory, Balak (who’d heard they were on their way) met Balaam at Moab’s city on the Arnon.

Balak (to Balaam): 37 Didn’t you understand it was I who requested you again and again? Why didn’t you come? Am I not able to give you honor?

Balaam (to Balak): 38 Well, I’m here now. But do you think I can say whatever I please? I can only say what God tells me to say. God puts the words in my mouth.

39 Nevertheless the two went off together. Balak led Balaam to Kiriath-huzoth in Moab. 40 Later on, Balak had some oxen and sheep sacrificed, which he made sure Balaam received (along with the officials who accompanied him).

41 The next day, Balak led Balaam up to a high place of Baal worship, an altar dedicated to pagan lords.[b] Looking down from there, they could see a section of the Israelite camp.

23 Balaam (to Balak): This is what I need from you. Build seven altars here, and then get seven bulls and seven rams ready to sacrifice.

2 Balak did just as Balaam had asked him to do. Then together they offered a bull and a ram on each of the seven altars.

Balaam (to Balak): 3 You stay here, close to these burnt offerings. I’m going to go a little ways away, in case the Eternal wants to meet justwith me. Whatever He lets me know, I’ll be sure to pass on to you.

So Balaam went over to an exposed area on the heights, 4 and God met Balaam there.

Balaam (to the Lord): I made seven altars and set an offering of a bull and a ram on each one.

Eternal One (giving Balaam the right words to say): 5 Go back to Balak and recite what I’ve told you.

6 So Balaam walked back down and over to where Balak stood waiting next to the burnt offerings, along with the officials of Moab. 7 Balaam recited His words.

Balaam: The king of Moab got me to come here, all the way frommy home in Aram.
        Balak summoned me from the eastern mountains.
    “Come, curse Jacob for me!”
        “Come, denounce Israel!”
8     But I ask you, how can I curse any whom God has not cursed
        or denounce whomever the Eternal has not denounced?
9     Here on the heights, from the rocky places where I stand,
        I can see them; from these hills I observe them below.
    And what do I see but a unique and solitary people
        who do not have a place among the nations.
10     Who can count the dust of Jacob
        or even a fourth of their number?
    It’s impossible to count even one quarter of Israel.
        Let me die as one who has done what is right.
    Let my end be like his!

Balak (to Balaam): 11 What are you doing to me? I brought you all the way out here to curse these people—my enemies—yet what have you done? You’ve blessed them!

Balaam: 12 But don’t you agree that I have to be very careful to make sure I say only and exactly what the Eternal has given me to say?

Balak: 13 Well, come over here. Admittedly, from the place where I’m bringing you, you can only see a small part of that whole congregation. But I am commanding you: from this new place, curse them!

14 So Balak brought Balaam to the fields of Zophim, on the top of Pisgah’s peakAs before, he built there seven altars on which he sacrificed seven bulls and seven rams.

Pisgah dominates the Abarim Mountains and is thus used as a lookout to warn of possible attack.

Balaam (to Balak): 15 You stand here, by the altars with their burnt offerings, while I go just over there to talk with the Eternal One.

16 And once again, the Eternal met Balaam and gave him the words to say.

Eternal One: Go back to Balak, and recite what I’ve told you.

17 So Balaam returned to where Balak stood waiting next to the burnt offerings along with the Moabite officials.

Balak (to Balaam): What did the Eternal say?

18 And Balaam recited His words.

Balaam: Listen up, Balak, and attend to these words:
        Hear, son of Zippor, what God has to say to you.
19     God is not a man—He doesn’t lie.
        God isn’t the son of a man to want to take back what He’s said,
    Or say something and not follow through,
        or speak and not act on it.

20     Look here, I received a word of blessing,
        and He has spoken a blessing.
        I cannot take it back.
21     There is no vision of wrongdoing by Jacob;
        God has seen no trouble for Israel.
    The Eternal One abides among them;
        and the shout of a king is among them.
22     God, who leads them out of Egypt,
        His splendor is like the wild bull:
23     There is no divination against Jacob
        or enchantment against Israel.
    Soon, people will say of Jacob and Israel,
        “Look at what God has accomplished!”
24     Look at this people rise up like a lion,
        like a lion who gets up and does not lie down
        until it devours its prey,
        even drinking the blood of the slain.

Balak (to Balaam): 25 Don’t curse them, but don’t bless them either!

Balaam: 26 Haven’t you been listening? Whatever the Eternal tells me, I must do.

Balak: 27 I think we should try a different spot. Come on and maybe God will be happy to let you curse them for me from over there.

28 So off they went againThis time, Balak took the prophet to the top of Peor, from where they could look down over the whole broad spread of Jeshimon, which some call simply “the wasteland.”

Balaam (to Balak): 29-30 You know what to do: get the seven altars ready and burn the offerings, just as you did before.

And so Balak did—he built seven altars, on each of which were sacrificed a bull and a ram.

24 Meanwhile, it was obvious to Balaam that the Eternal One was quite happy to bless Israel, so he didn’t go through the trouble of looking for omens of God’s intent. Instead, Balaam contemplated the wildernessstretched out before him. 2 Seeing the Israelites camping there, in their orderly arrangement by tribes, he was suddenly overcome by God’s Spirit. 3 He recited God’s words.

Balaam: This is an oracle of Balaam (Beor’s son),
        a man whose eyes have been opened,
4     Whose ears hear God-given words,
        and whose eyes see visions from the God of the Mountains.[c]
    I fall down with eyes opened.
5     “O, the lovely tents of Jacob,
        even the dwelling places of Israel.
6     Like date trees spread out as a garden along the river,
        as aloe trees planted by the Eternal,
    Like cedar trees along the waters.
7     I can see overflowing water, its seed in many waters
        and its king lifted higher than Agag,[d]
        even its kingdom lifted up.
8     God leads them from Egypt like the splendor of a wild bull.
        He will devour the nations, even his adversaries,
    And he will crush their bones and strike them through with his arrows.
9     He lies low and crouches down as a lion or lioness.
        Who would dare rouse him?
    Blessed are those who bless you and cursed those who curse you.”

Balak and his men have been engaged in preparing the altars and making the sacrifices; he doesn’t like the sound of this at all.

10 He was absolutely furious with Balaam, smacking his hands together with anger.

Balak (confronting Balaam): I can’t believe this! I brought you all this way and asked you to curse my enemies, but instead you actually blessed them. And you did that not just once, mind you, or twice, but three times. 11 Now get out of here! Get out of my sight—go back to that miserable place you call home. Yeah, sure, I said I’d greatly honor you, but the Eternal has withheld the honor that I had planned for you.

Balaam (to Balak): 12 Remember the first time that you sent messengers to get me? Even then I told them 13 I don’t care how much silver and gold you have or what all you’d give to me; I cannot alter what God would have me say. Whatever the Eternal One puts into my mouth is what will come out, whether good or evil words. 14 So, yes, I’m heading home. But before I go, I will tell you what those people will do to your nation when your time is up.

15 He recited God’s words.

Balaam: This is an oracle of Balaam (Beor’s son),
        a man whose eye has been opened,
16     Whose ears hear God-given words,
        who understands the very thoughts of the Most High God,
    And whose eyes see visions from the God of the Mountains.
        I fall down with eyes opened.

17     I see him, but at a later time, I’ll recognize him, even though he is far away.
        A star will come out of Jacob,[e]
    A scepter shall rise out of Israel.
        It will break Moab and tear down the people of Seth.[f]
18     Edom will be its possession, even Seir will belong to its enemies,
        but Israel will have power.
19     One from Jacob will rule,
        and he’ll destroy whatever remains of the city.

20 Then Balaam turned toward the land of the Amalekites and spoke his prophecy.

Balaam: Amalek was first among the nations,
        but its end is destruction.

21 Then Balaam turned toward the land of the Kenites and spoke his prophecy.

Balaam: Your dwelling is lasting,
        and your nest is set on a rock;
22     Yet Kain will be burned up.
        “Until when?” When Asshur takes you away as captives.

23 Balaam took up his answers:

Balaam: I ask, “Woe, for who will remain alive when God does this?[g]
        Who will survive?”
24     Ships will come from Kittim[h] and will afflict Asshur and Eber,
        who is also set for destruction.

25 Then Balaam went his way to his country, and Balak went his waytoward his country.
