“Whosoever will”, that’s how God puts it, anyone who wants know Him personally and live in His blessing is welcome: whosoever, anyone, anywhere, regardless of sex, race, or national origin. It is written in Revelation 22:17,   And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.   There’s just not a clearer way to say it, is there?
    ‘Whosoever will”, that means even Satan himself can’t keep you from having a relationship with God, even though he will do everything in his power to keep you from doing so.  And the invitation is not just to you, but everyone YOU invite, in fact, even someone overhearing you invite someone else is free to come along, and “he who heareth” is also free to invite whosoever they want.  Wow!  That could end up being a lot of people!  Well, that’s the whole idea, because there is an endless supply of the “water of life” available, more than enough for every person on the face of the earth.
    Most people have noticed what I’d call a “hole in their life”, and they spend most of their life trying to fill it with money and material things, knowing there is something missing, but not quite sure what it is.  They will often drift from relationship to relationship, but never being satisfied, having a longing or thirsting in their heart that never goes away. Sound familiar?
    Guess what?  God created that “thirst” on purpose, so He alone could satisfy it.  That’s right, God created a place inside of you that only He can fill, a place where you could invite Him to fellowship with you personally, one-on-one, forever.  And when the trials of life come, and they always do, you can go to Him and He will always be there to help.  And the best part is, you don’t have far to go to find Him when you need Him, for He dwells in that place in you that He created for Himself.  I’m trying to make this simple so you will understand.
    The apostle Paul summed it up like this in Romans 10:8-13:
Rom 10:8  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Rom 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Rom 10:12  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Rom 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    There it is again, that “whosoever”: includes YOU if you call upon the name of the Lord, and the water of life will flow freely unto you, meaning you will never be athirst again, no matter what situation you may face in life.
    Paul faced many, many trials and tribulations, yet he always knew he was never alone, for we have the promise of the Holy Spirit that He will neither leave or forsake us.  Knowing we have the Greater One living inside us gives us not only courage to face any obstacle, but we can do so with great peace, for in Him there is no defeat.  Why is that?  Because God has never lost a battle in all eternity, and He isn’t about to start with your situation.
   The “water of life” is just that: it isn’t the “water of death”.  And it isn’t just “life”, but rather, “life more abundantly”.  Now THAT’S living!  The Lord Jesus said in John 10:10, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.   Have you given much thought to that lately?  God doesn’t want you to just “survive”, but to have “life more abundantly”, and that includes having life more abundantly in the midst of trials and tribulations!  That means, when the world around you is living in famine, you can be living on a continual feast, for the “water of life” flowing from God to you means you are like a well-watered garden, full of beauty in the midst of the desert.
   Far too many people think if they come to God they have to give up a lot of stuff.  Well, in a way that’s true.  When I asked the Lord Jesus to save me and be my Lord and Savior, I gave up all my sins to Him, and He took them away.  Where did He take them?  Don’t know, don’t care.  All I know is that I don’t have them anymore, praise God!  All the guilt and condemnation left with them.  Oh yes, I almost forgot…I also gave up all my sickness and diseases, you see, that’s part of what the water of life washes away.  King David wrote in Psalms 103:1-13:
Psa 103:1  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Psa 103:2  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Psa 103:3  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Psa 103:4  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Psa 103:5  Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psa 103:6  The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
Psa 103:7  He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
Psa 103:8  The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
Psa 103:9  He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
Psa 103:10  He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
Psa 103:11  For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
Psa 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Psa 103:13  Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
    You see, the “water of life” so freely given to “whosoever will” doesn’t take away your freedom, but rather gives you freedom.  How would you like to be free from sin, free from sickness, free from worry and anxiety, free from addictions?  How would you like to know your every need will be met, no matter how great it is?  It is possible to do so, and right now.  All you have to be is a “whosoever will”.  Of course, as I said earlier, the devil will try to talk you out of it. He wants your life to be full of sin, sickness, poverty, worry, confusion, lies, sadness, broken relationships, and all that other junk that he is the author of.  But today, right now, you can be free, for Satan cannot stop the “whosoever will” who wants the Lord to rescue them.
How about you, are you “WHOSOEVER WILL”?  Then come get your water of life!
