All my life I have cherished this thought as applying to the initial act of salvation, and have rejoiced in what I saw as an insight into the gift of Yahshua. Unexpectedly my heart exploded with a fresh understanding! It is the wells of salvation – plural! In those wells are all the joys of Yahweh’s grace and provision, all the ‘add-on’ benefits of being His redeemed child. I realised that deriving peace and tranquillity from the Sabbath, as I do every week, is the outcome of drawing water from one of those wells.
As we look with expectancy to the blessing of Yahweh in the forthcoming Feast of Tabernacles we are, once more, preparing to draw deeply from the wells of salvation. Writing to the Corinthians and quoting from Isaiah, the apostle Paul said, ““Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which [Yahweh] hath prepared for them that love Him.” [1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV] I believe that the Feasts of Yahweh are part of this divine preparation. When He spoke to His prophet, Moses, Yahweh unfolded a picture of His entire plan of redemption, revealing all that would come to pass right to the end of time. This message He locked into the outworking of His annual Feasts, and His chosen people have faithfully kept what was entrusted to them.
In our generation we are privileged to understand that large chunks of the visual prophecy have been fulfilled. We live in thrilling times, the time of the ‘seventh month’! Let us go jubilantly into Succoth and joyfully ‘draw water’ from these deep, beautiful, bubbling wells of salvation.
