Are you Beerlahairoi?


The name that Hagar, the runaway slave girl of Sarai, gives to the well (between Kadesh and Bered), where she meets the Lord, is Beerlahairoi, meaning the well of the Living One who sees me.

Note, how Hagar describes the Lord. She describes him as the Living One. She also goes on to state that the eyes of the Living One is on her.

Points to ponder:
The Lord is not only Living, for from everlasting to everlasting (Psalms 90:2), he is, but also his eyes are fixed on you and me. He sees us. Out of a well flows water. Out of the the one who believes in the Lord, Living Water  shall flow from him/her (John 7:38-39). When we believe in Jesus,  out of us shall flow the Holy Spirit (Living Water) of God. Can those who look at us say, we are “Beerlahairoi”? meaning that we are the well of the Living One who sees us?

Genesis 16:14 (KJV)
14 Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.

Psalm 1 :: By rivers of water, fruitful and unwithering


The Bible teaches us that “The blessed man is like a tree planted by the rivers of water, who brings forth his fruit in his season, and his leaves does not wither and in whatsoever he does, he prospers.” (Psalm 1:3).

A tree that is planted by the rivers of water implies that the tree has perpetually proximity to water, which is a primary source of its life. Jesus said, I am the resurrection and THE LIFE (John 11:25) and his Holy Spirit is the living water that flows out of those who have believed and received Jesus Christ (John 4:13-14). A blessed man, is one who is perpetually in proximity to Jesus Christ, the author and personification of life.

Not only is he watered by the Holy Spirit of God, the blessed man is also fruitful in his mission of reconciling God to man. Just as a mango tree will bear only mango fruit and not any other kind of fruit, the fruit of a believing blessed person and can only be another believer who will also be blessed. Unlike the fig tree that was worthless to the owner of the vineyard, but fit only to be cut down for being fruitless (Luke 13:6-9), the man who is fruitful brings joy to the owner of the vineyard, producing many others who believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ; much fruit in thirty, sixty and hundredfold.

Additionally, just as leaves are a source of medicine that brings healing (Revelation 22:12; Ezekiel 47:12), the blessed man is unwithering in his mission of bringing healing to the nations; healing from the sickness of sin and the power of death, by pointing others to Jesus Christ, the master physician and healer of all mankind.

Psalm 1:3 (KJV)
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
