Is there a point ...? if here is I am missing it.

Hey brother Jim_Alaska.  Of course there is a point in sharing the material as cited in OP.

In studying I found a really neat statement in John 4:26, and got to see the many times that Jesus referred to Himself in this way.  What appealed to me the most in John 4:26, is that the Samaritan woman represents (1 Cor. 15:46) in anti-type, Laodicea (Revelation 3:16).

Thank you for asking.

There is no indication in either John 4 nor in Revelation 3 of any type or anti-type.

Any chance you could show the basis for your statement?

Sure brother DaveW.  Would you mind if I ask you some questions to think about, and in that way you may reach the same conclusion on your own?

Ummm - no need for you to ask me questions - this is a fairly simple matter for you to show...…..

You are the one making the assertions, any answers to questions that I can give you will have no affect on your reasoning.

It is after all YOUR REASONING that I am seeking......

I will ask anyway, even as Jesus asked those who came to him for answers.  Jesus wanted them to have the answers.

In Revelation 3:16, the scripture uses the word "lukewarm"How does one get "lukewarm"?

In John 4:7 Jesus meets a "woman of Samaria"What is a "Samaritan"?

Now for some helpful hints as you think upon the questions asked:

In Revelation 17:15, "waters" are identified as "peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues", and this is seen through the rest of scripture as well (for instance:  Isaiah 17:12; Psalms 1:1-2 (along with Jude 1:13), 77:19).

In scripture a "woman" (represents a 'city' or religious body, whether true (Rev. 12) or false (Rev 17)), see Jeremiah 3:14,20, 6:2; Ephesians 5:32; Revelation 17:18; Hosea 1:2, 2:2 and so on (Isaiah 54:5, 61:10, 62:5; 2 Corinthians 11:1; Ephesians 5:23-32; Song of Solomon 4:9,10,12, 5:1,2; Revelation 19:7, 21:2,3,9).

Jesus finds (comes across) this woman outside of the city, thus in a wilderness area by a well.

Jesus, being Israel, is Israel's (Overcomer's) Well, but asks the "woman"

Joh 4:7  There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

What was Jesus asking for?  The same thing He desired on the Cross:

Joh_19:28  After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

What was it?  Natural water?  No.  Jesus was asking for living Faith:

Mat_25:35  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Mat_25:42  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

Again, "water" is also symbolic of "faith":

Joh_6:35  And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Did Jesus get His hunger & thirst quenched with the woman at the well?

Joh 4:32  But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

Joh 4:39  And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
Joh 4:40  So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
Joh 4:41  And many more believed because of his own word;

drawing long straws, and refusing to answer plainly.

Why don't you give some reason to trust you?

All you have done so far is posted at least some false teaching, some very vague assertions that are apparently not backed up by the Scriptures you post, refuse to answer a number of very reasonable questions, and refuse to give your affiliations, and flood the forum  with so much information that it is impossible to follow it all.

GIVE US A REASON TO TRUST YOU, because so far you give us no reason at all.

You give us reason by your method, your reluctance, and your plainly false statements (in a few cases), to doubt you.

Give us some reason to trust you......

Um, that's actually kind of rude, EvangAlived.  Someone asks you a question, you agree to answer, and then refuse to actually answer?  Be honest and stop playing games.

Remember, I stated that scripture is my final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

Mar_11:29  And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.

Jesus is my example with those of hard hearts.

While ye are of your father ...

Okay, I'm letting this through moderation so it can be Warned about. As per the rules, No swearing or derogatory terms are permitted. Calling someone 'of the devil' (especially a presumed fellow believer) is not permitted.  And as per standard practice, when a thread degrades to this extent, it gets closed. And hey, you might want to be nicer to me. Apparently I'm the only mod letting your posts through right now. 😄
