THE RIVER OF LIFE (THE HOLY SPIRIT)

Oct 10, 2023

From Genesis to revelation, God sent His Spirit upon a man every time He wanted to do anything because the Holy Spirit is the instrument of the Triune God responsible for bringing about any change, growth or transformation you want to see in your life.

The Lord is telling us to re-dig all those wells that have been filled with the Philistines; the Philistines mean the worldly things that have clogged the outflow of the Holy Spirit.

Genesis 2:10 Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads.

That river gave and sustained life in the Garden of Eden. It is time for you to allow the Holy Spirit to dig out those things that stand as a hindrance to Him so that pure water will flow to water your family and nations.

Psalms 46:4 [There is] a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy [place] of the tabernacle of the Most High.

Please get rid of everything that blocks the flow of the Spirit in your life, for He is the river responsible for sustainability of everything in your life. Otherwise, Christianity will be reduced to mere sets of regulations and religion with no life.

2 Timothy 3:5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

The form is the structure and the life is the Holy Spirit. You can have the structure without life; it was until God breathed into Adam that the structure got life (Genesis 2:7).

The Spirit that gives life but the flesh profits nothing. This brings us back to one truth, the flow of the river of life (John 6:63).

The reason why your life; business, prayer life, home, family has become arid or a wilderness is because the flow of the river has been cut off.

Isaiah 41:18 I will open rivers in desolate heights, And fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, And the dry land springs of water.

Life is sustained by the water of the spirit. Therefore, when you see death and wilderness with or around you, it is because men have prevented the river from flowing there. Dig out everything that is blocking the flow of the river so that life can flow again. Then, you will see growth in your family, business, etcetera.

As believers, everything we do is tied to that river. That is why even after Jesus gave the disciples the great commission of preaching the gospel, He told them not to leave Jerusalem until they were dressed with the river(Holy Spirit).

It is the Holy Spirit that takes the things that God has spoken and brings them to reality in our lives.

Jesus patiently waited for the Holy Spirit for thirty years and the day He came on Him, it took Jesus only three years to accomplish His mission (Luke 4:1).

Whenever you experience difficulty and flexing of carnal power, know you are performing without the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

As long as you are a child of God, your performance, effectiveness and victory in this life is dependent on your fellowship and relationship with the Holy Spirit.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
