John 7:39

On the last day of the Jewish Festival of Tabernacles, Jesus cried out to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, 'if anyone is thirsty, come to Me and drink, and from his innermost being will flow rivers of living water'.

Jesus is the incarnate God. He is the Word of God, made in human flesh.. and Jesus spoke only those things, which He heard from His Father in heaven.
