Invitation to the Thirsty #1

For those of you who do not yet know the Father, I wish to share a message He gave to man 700 years B.C. You can find it in chapter 55 of the book of Isaiah in the Bible. Here is the first part:

“Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me;
hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David” (Isaiah 55:1-3).

This is not speaking of physical thirst or physical hunger. It is talking about another kind of emptiness that can be satisfied and is free for the receiving. The end result is “your soul shall live.”
