Open up the Fountains: Immersion!
“But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”—John 4:14 Often we view warfare and intercession as decrees and declarations. And, while I do believe that the Lord is calling us to proclaim His Word over this season, proclamations do not take the place of repentance. As we read the list of events that took place during Tisha B’Av season (see Part 2), we can see that the Church is not innocent when it comes to the history of Tisha B’Av and the Jewish people. And in honor of the memory of all the horrific events that took place during this season, including the crusades and pogroms, the Lord is calling us to not only remember, but also to repent. Remembrance and repentance hinders a repeat of negative history between the Church and Israel.
Repentance Opens the Doors of Restoration!
Repentance opens doors for us to be restored. Through House of David Ministries in Fairland, Oklahoma, the Lord has called us to open-up a fountain, a literal pool to cleanse His temples. This is a place of repentance; a place of refreshing and empowerment; and a place of deliverance and restoration. At Curt Landry Ministries we immerse for numerous reasons: we immerse as a symbol of complete dedication, for spiritual renewal, and as an outward expression of a step of faith for healing and cleansing. Just as the mikvah is an important part of Jewish culture the Immersion pool at House of David has become an important part of our culture as One New Man Believers as thousands upon thousands have come to be immersed and spiritually filled. “In that day a fountain shall be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness. ‘It shall be in that day,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to depart from the land.’”—Zechariah 13:1-2 In this season I believe that God is asking us to allow ourselves to be immersed; thereby, allowing Yeshua to open up an inner fountain within us. Cleansing us from the idolatry that leads us astray and destroys our temples. This is a unique way for us to recognize Tisha B’Av as modern day Believers and not loose site of this important part of history. “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”—2 Chronicles 7:14
