John 7:38 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "He that believeth on me," (ho pisteuon eis eme) "The one who trusts in me," for satisfaction of his thirst, Isa 55:1-3.

2) "As the scripture hath said," (kathos ei pen he grapse) "Just as the scripture has said," as the scriptures have directed, Pro 1:20-31; Pro 3:5-6; Isa 45:18; Isa 45:22; Isa 55:6-7; Psa 145:18-19.

3) "Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." (ptamoi ek tes koilias autou hreusousin hudatos zontos) ''Out of and away from his belly will flow rivers of living water," out of the center of His affections of life, from His spiritual nature, after one has believed. The spirit that is given in the new birth will work forever, flow forever, for He is once received to abide in the believer forever, Joh 3:6; Joh 6:63; Joh 14:16-17; Joh 4:13; Rom 5:5.

From that little church group in the upper room, when they had been empowered, (Act 1:8; Act 1:15; Act 2:1-4) there flowed rivers of living water, to cause the thirst of 3,000 souls to be quenched on Pentecost, as Peter preached the Word.
