2.       Water

Water is the second witness in earth.

Water, water, is everywhere.

We will begin in the book of Job, chapter thirty-eight, verse thirty.  We read:

“The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?” [Job 38:30-33]

The face of the deep is frozen.

Beyond, and higher than the clouds, [the first heaven] and beyond our solar system [the sun, the moon and the planets], are the star constellations, which is the second heaven].   

To the north, and beyond, and higher than these star constellations, and beyond the expanse of the universe, we leave the domain of time to pass into eternity, and thus, we come to the third heaven

2 Corinthians 12:2:I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.”

We must now cross the waters of the frozen deep.   Frozen deep?

Job 38:30:The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.” 

These waters form a sea of glass with the appearance much like as unto crystal.    This is the frozen deep.

Revelation 4:6:And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.”

And above this crystal sea is a THRONE.

Psalm 48:2: “Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.”

Our interest will be now focused on what is below the throne that is in the third heaven.  Below the third heaven is the frozen deep

This frozen deep is the source for all the waters in the universe.  It is the fountain for all the waters involved in the creation in all that was created.  We see the deep in the first book of Moses called Genesis in the first chapter:

Genesis 1:2 “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

What is water?

Water is a substance that is clear, colorless, odorless, and a tasteless liquid, H2O, and is essential for life.   The freezing point is 0°C (32°F); the boiling point is 100°C (212°F); and the specific gravity at (4°C) is 1.0000; and its weight per gallon is (15°C) 8.338 pounds (3.782 kilograms).

Water is a universal solvent.

Water is called the “universal solvent” because it is capable of dissolving more substances than any other liquid on the planet. This is very important to every living thing on this earth. It means that wherever water goes, either through the air, the ground, or through our bodies, it takes along valuable chemicals, minerals, and nutrients.

Water sprinkled cleansed or purified the Levitical priests for service:

Cleanse them!  Wash their clothes!  Make them ever so clean!

Numbers 8:7: “And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.”

In the Mosaic Law there was provision for a water of purification.

Numbers 19:9: “And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel for a water of separation: it is a purification for sin.”

The face of the waters:

Notice where the water came from in the flood in Noah’s day.  It came from the fountains of the great deep.  The LORD used WATER in the judgment of all that lived on the earth in the great Noachian Flood.

Proverbs 8:28: “When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:”

The world-wide flood occurred when the fountains of the great deep were broken up, as is seen in the book of Moses called Genesis:

Genesis 7:11: “In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.”

Upon the noise of God’s waterspouts, the deep [the flood] covered this earth.

Psalm 104:6: “Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.”

Genesis 8:2: “The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;”

Again we find the location of the deep is below the third heaven.

Genesis 49:25: Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:”

Deuteronomy 33:13: “And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath,”

Again, we find the original state of the deep is frozen.

Job 38:30: “The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.”

The water of the frozen deep can be transformed and found in three states, as a solid, as a liquid or as a gas.

Water can be boiled and can exist in a gaseous state: Job 41:31:

“He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.”

Water can even exist as a hoar frost as found in the books of Exodus and of Job [Exodus 16:14, Job 41:32]:

“He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.”

The deep also refers to the oceans and the seas of this earth, and to the rivers, too.  The frozen deep of the second heaven calls to the deep upon the earth at a signal [at the noise] of the waterspouts, and as the fountains do from the deep above. 

Deep calleth unto deep [as if it were a person].

Here it is in the Psalms:

Psalm 42:7: “Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.”

The Deep is calling!

Now, who is the One that controls the great deep? 

Answer: The waters of the great deep are controlled by God as shown in these three verses:

·         Amos 7:4: “Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and, behold, the Lord GOD called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.”

·         Ezekiel 26:19: “For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee;”

·         Isaiah 51:10: Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?”

Now, the Deep can be heard as a voice.  This Deep can be heard in the book of Habakkuk the prophet:

Habakkuk 3:10: “The mountains saw thee, and they trembled: the overflowing of the water passed by: the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high.”

Also, there is this telling reference to the Mediterranean Sea as being the deep, wherein the floods compassed the prophet Jonah:

Jonah 2:3: “For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.”

The LORD covered with the deep Pharaoh [who is a type of the Devil]:

Ezekiel 31:15: “Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.”

The LORD manipulates the deep as when HE led Israel through the deep in the exodus from Egypt:

Isaiah 63:13: “That led them through the deep, as an horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble?”

Even the Apostle Paul had spent time in the deep:

2 Corinthians 11:25: “Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;”

Note: The devils did not want to be banished to the deep in the Gospel according to Luke:

Luke 8:31: “And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.”

Furthermore, there are areas in the Sea of Galilee that can be called the deep:

Luke 5:4: “Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.”

And something else, the deep can also refer to the rivers of this earth.  For this, look in the book of Isaiah, the prophet:

Isaiah 44:27: “That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers:”

Hell is also, referred as the deep.  This can be seen in the epistle to the Romans:

Romans 10:7: “Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)”

All these references to the deep are sourced from the frozen deep [which is the crystal sea] which is below the throne of God in the third heaven.

What can we learn here?  We can learn that, the mightiness of the LORD God is revealed by HIS wonders in the deep:

Psalm 107:24: “These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.”

1 John 5:8:

“And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

The third witness is the Blood:
