I believe that God is about to send send the River of God to the people in North America. In 1983, Bob Jones had a dream that in 10 years the river would flow again. On January 20, 1994; the river did start to flow in a small church in Canada. It changed the world.
I was sitting working of the book about prayer and I saw on Facebook a worship video. It is Rick Pino singing about the River of God. I love Rick’s stuff and he is a model for prophetic worship.
It got me thinking about the river 🙂
River of God has a source: YOU!
Since the day of Pentecost, the river of God has not flowed to the people of God but from them. This is the picture we get in Ezekiel 47 at least. Yes, you have to first have it, but then you have to release it!
Then he brought me back to the door of the house. And I saw water flowing from under the doorway toward the east, for the house looked toward the east. The water was flowing from under the right side of the house, from south of the altar. He brought me out through the north gate and led me around on the outside to the east gate. And I saw water coming from the south side. –Ezekiel
The river did start in the Church but if you notice, it did not stay in the Church; it went to the world. The reason that the River of God gets dammed up more times that we care to admit is we don’t open the doors to let the river out.
If you don’t open the floodgates, you will drown in the River of God that was meant to transform you and the community around you.
The River will deliver Moses
I It was the river that saved Moses from being killed and instead gave him royal authority. Literally. If it was not for him being pushed down the river in a basket; it would have dead within days.
In the same way, many people are completely dead spiritually and the venue for their miracles and life afresh is the river of God. It is just a river of job but also a one of deliverance.
What many do not realize, like Moses, is their deliverance is not for them; it is through them. Moses was not delivered just for him own good; he was delivered for the people of God.
Healing is in the River of God
These waters go out toward the east country and down into the Arabah, then flow into the Dead sea. When they flow into the sea, the waters there become clean again. Every living thing that gathers where the river goes will live. There will be very many fish, because these waters go there and make the salt water clean. So everything will live where the river goes. Fishermen will stand beside it. They will have places to spread their nets from Engedi to Eneglaim. The fish will be of many kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea. But its wet places and pools will not be good for animal life. They will be left for salt. All kinds of fruit trees will grow on both sides of the river. Their leaves will not dry up, and they will never stop giving fruit. They will give fruit every month because their water flows from the holy place. Their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.” –Angel of the Lord
The prophetic word that everything lives in the river is powerful. Your dream lives in the river. Your family’s salvation lives in the river. Your son’s deliverance from crack lives in the river. Whatever you need is found there.
Without it, most people will take their addiction, dead dreams, and salvation of people they care about to the graveyard; the final resting place of most dreams and ideas.
What the people need is to let the River of God flow to them, in them and through them!
Here is an old song from the renewal in the 1990’s about the River…. Let the River flow.
