Are you a wellspring or a ‘Mikvah’?

Allow me to ask you a question: Are you a wellspring (a fountain) or a ‘mikvah’ (a cistern)?

Leviticus 11:36 tells us: “Nevertheless a wellspring or a cistern, in which there is plenty of water, shall be clean”. However this is not a perfect translation.
The Hebrew word for ‘clean’ is ‘lenakot’, but the Hebrew word used here for “clean” is “tahor” which actually means “pure”.
So Leviticus 11:36 should read: “Nevertheless a wellspring or a cistern, in which there is plenty of water, shall be pure”.

Rabbinical teaching tells us that a wellspring purifies regardless of the amount of the water it contains, whether the water flows or is stationary. A ‘mikvah’ purifies only when stationary, and it must contain approximately 87.5 gallons (331.2235 litres) of water.
You may ask what the relevance of this is.

G-d’s Divine Nature

In Exodus 34:6-7 we receive a revelation of G-d’s Divine nature: “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin”

The Hebrew of the above scripture is: “ADONAI, ADONAI, EL rachum ve’channun, erech apayim, ve’rav chesed v’emet; no’tzer chesed lo’a’lo’afim, no’seh a’von va’phesha v’chata’a ve’nakeh”

The Jewish Church

The first about fifty to one hundred thousand Christians were mostly Jewish! This may seem like an astonishing statement, however, Acts 1:15 tells us that the 120 men and women, waiting in the Upper Room, who included the apostles, were all Jewish. In fact, it is safe to say that the first 3120 Christians were all Jewish. Allow me to explain this.
