The woman’s immediate response to the request for a drink from Jacob’s well was: “How is it that You, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Since truth is all-encompassing, there is always a place for it to be practiced -- there is literally no place or experience that is exempted from its presence -- and therefore, there is always the demand to live in its light. Yet when we drill down to the heart of this matter, the issue is not divorce or remarriage or shacking up that Master was trying to get at. Prior to my recent examination of this story and it’s tremendous implications to our individual and collective walks in Messiah, I saw this story as simply our Master revealing Himself to a Gentile woman and an example of how our Faith must overcome racism in the world through the Gospel message. I’m the one you’re referencing. Now we know that when we read this verse what is being said is that a person must worship the Most High rationally and truthfully. 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And I can attest that this sort of worship of men comes along so subtly at first that most of us don’t even realize that we have fallen into man/teacher worship. or, “Why do You speak with her?” (John 4:27). But since I’m here in Samaria speaking to you, let’s just get this one sticking point out of the way.

To begin with, the woman was a Samaritan, which put her at a particularly challenging disadvantage. 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. Consider that deep in the heart of Hebrew history, the installation of kings, prophets, and high priests were accomplished by the anointing of oil on the head that ran down on the body. I now see from the story of the Samaritan Woman, a a classic reminder and lesson of how the flesh, religion and culture, all work in concert to enslave us and keep us from ever having a true and substantive relationship with the Creator of the Universe. Paul seized upon this event from an amazing spiritual perspective–such that the event had tremendous prophetic significance to all of us. The writer of Psalm 119: 142 wrote: “Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law (i.e., thy Torah) is the truth.” (KJV). Let’s reflect upon the topic of worshiping Abba in Spirit and in Truth as it relates to our Hebrew Roots Faith. This belief requires Faith which scriptures describes as: 11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Whether all of her husbands died or she had been divorced from each of them five times, or a combination of both death and divorce, is not readily apparent here. I have been wondering why the word "wine" is never used in scripture in relation to the supper (but used freely elsewhere) but always fruit of the vine and cup. The oil symbolized the Holy Spirit of God which accompanied the anointing, and empowered the anointed one with the necessary capacity to fulfill his newly bestowed role.

(Ezekiel 11; 36; Jeremiah 31) Worship is going to transition from that of rote-mechanical adherence to a set of ordinances, regulations and statutes; away from a physical location on this planet; over to the individual worshiper. True worship must be “in spirit,” that is, … Until next time fellow Saints in Training.

In Hebrew thinking, what a man trusts and follows determines what a man does. Master told us: “We who hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6). If that “living water”–that Spirit–that Master spoke to the woman at the well is actually dwelling within us, then we stand to never thirst again. And to be clear the Messiah did acknowledge commandments let’s look at what he said to a rich man: 18 He saith unto him, Which? This is the time of your visitation my dear. This is why the scriptures say to study to show yourself approved unto god, and rightly divide the word of truth, without shame (2 Timothy 2:15). Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness. This would show a lack of understanding because the scriptures do not say this, because there is a dietary law that is still in place (Leviticus 11).
