Even the Waters Respond

And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the deep. (Genesis 1:2)
The Hebrew word for “hovering,” means to flutter, to move, even to brood over, as a hen broods over her eggs to hatch them, or over her chicks to warm and develop them. The Holy Spirit was brooding over the face of the deep, or as the King James Version has it, the “face of the waters.” Adam Clarke, in his Bible commentary, said that it signifies the communicating of a vital, prolific principle to the water. Something was being imparted and instilled which has very much to do with life, for water is vital for life.

Water covers about three quarters of the face of the earth, but on the very first day, it covered the world completely. When the Spirit of God moved over the face of the waters, it was imparting something to the whole earth.

Water is an excellent conductor of energy, and ultimately, energy is information — mind stuff. Dr. Masaru Emoto, author of the New York Times Bestseller, The Hidden Messages of Water, has conducted some very interesting experiments on the capacity of water to conduct information. He has taken water samples from many sources throughout the world, frozen droplets from them and photographed the resultant crystals. What he has discovered is nothing short of amazing.

Samples of tap water from various cities around the world generally do not form water crystals very well because they are not very pure; but water drawn from various freshwater sources produces some beautiful crystals. Perhaps that in itself is not very surprising, but what Dr. Emoto did next is: he exposed the water to various kinds of music and then measured the results. Water exposed to music by Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin produced distinct and well-formed crystals; water exposed to heavy-metal rock music produced fragmented, malformed crystals.

Next, Dr. Emoto exposed the water to various types of words. But these were not spoken words; rather, they were written words taped to bottles of water. Again, the results were amazing: When the water was exposed to words of gratitude, “Thank you,” in various languages, it produced beautiful, well-formed crystals. But when it was exposed to the word “Fool,” the results were very similar to the water exposed to the heavy-metal rock music: no crystals formed. It doesn’t make sense for water to be able to “read” words, but it does appear to somehow be able to sense and respond to human intention and emotion expressed with words. Other words, both positive and negative in nature, produced corresponding results.

Water samples were also exposed to various photographs, and the crystals that formed seemed to respond accordingly. This should probably come as no surprise, seeing how the water responded to music — light waves and sound waves are all part of the same electromagnetic spectrum.

There were also some interesting experiments involving before and after images of water samples from natural sources that had been prayed over. Before prayer was offered, the water samples produced poorly-formed crystals or no crystals at all. After prayer, the water samples produce beautiful, well-formed crystals. (You can also view photographs of many of these water droplet crystals here.)

In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, and the water enveloped the whole planet, the Holy Spirit brooded and imparted. The Bible also says that God framed the world by His words (Hebrews 11:3). Man, who was created in the image and likeness of God, and into whom God puffed His own breath, was given the charge to subdue the earth, that is, to bring it into divine order (Genesis 1:26-29). Should it come as a surprise, then, to find that water, which is so much a part of our existence, readily responds to human words and spirit?
