William Cowper wrote of fountain filled with blood; Jesus spoke of fountains of living water while Zechariah wrote about a fountain being opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of the city of Jerusalem. When Nehemiah came to the Fountain gate of the city there was so much rubble he couldn’t get past. He had to turn back.
This Gate got its name from the fact that it was the main access to the Gihon Spring, Jerusalem’s source of water. This fountain represented the life source of God Himself. It was very significant and the amount of rubble near it suggests it was the centre of attack by the Babylonians. Satan will do all he can to stop you from coming to the fountain of Living Water, come on Sunday to find out why he does.
