    37 ... Jesus stood and cried, saying, If 'any man thirst', let him come unto me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

    JOHN 7:18 he that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory but he that seeketh his glory that sent him the same is true and --NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IS IN HIM-- 2 CORINTHIANS 3:9 for if the ministration of condemnation be glory much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory --3:11-- for if that which is done away was glorious much more that which remaineth is glorious

    Jesus' task was an uphill climb! And even after irrefutable proof did they doubt, even to this day. Today, Christians give lip service to him but follow thoroughly ungodly men for expediency, who are thoroughly ungodly themselves. They claim to love but they only fawn after the false prophet. Not naming names but the hypocrisy here in America is ripe and they(christians)carry on in lock step.oi
