Fountain of life in scriptures; Illustrated by Gloria Poole of Missouri

I , Gloria Poole, have seen several fountains in my travels and probably most people have. They are endlessly amusing and refreshing. I tried to draw and paint an example of a fountain, and it is not to say that it resembles those in scripture. Most likely, it doesn't. But hopefully it illustrates well enough the cascading cool water flowing to the earth. I think of the allegory JESUS spoke when He referred to Himself as the Fountain of Living Waters, and that is was intended to create in a population of a hot, arid climate, a desire to know THE LIVING GOD, Who said He was The Fountain of Living Waters.

Here is the sketch I drew and painted this morning to illustrate this.


Some of the Scriptures about fountains in the King James Holy Bible :

"For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall we see light." Psalms 36:9

"Let thy fountain be blessed and rejoice with the wife of thy youth." from Proverbs 5:18 [which I think refers to a man's sperm as a fountain; and says to marry young].

"The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death." Proverbs 13:14

"The fear of THE LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. "Proverbs 14:27.

"For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me The Fountain of Living Waters and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns which can hold no water. " Jeremiah 2: 13

"O LORD, The Hope of Israel, all that forsake Thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken THE LORD, The Fountain of Living Waters. " Jeremiah 17:13

"And HE said unto me, 'it is done. I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life, freely."Revelation 21:6
