River of Revival

Praise the Lord!

Yesterday's meeting was awesome! God is steadily adding to our number and He is speaking to us about the River of Revival. He is showing us that the Source of the River of Revival flows from His presence; that the River of Revival is the Holy Spirit and that the Destination of the River is the world.

Looking at Revelation 22:1-5 and Ezekiel 47:1-12, we were given a spiritual picture with which the Lord revealed a spiritual principle (Hebrews 9:1-8) to us concerning how He desires His spiritual people (John 7:37-39; 1 Cor. 6:19) to live to bring revival.

We are excited because people's lives are being visibly changed as they experience and encounter the Lord of Life as we meet together and pray for one another. People are experiencing newness of life both spiritually and physically (just last Friday a sister was healed completely from severe leg pain!) As we spend time at the Source, pressing in further in our worship of God and as we seek to understand, know and experience the River, we know that the Destination will be affected for His glory!

God is on the move and it is time for the whole Church to jump into the River so that we do things His way and not ours! Then, we will see immeasurably more than all we can possibly ask or imagine, according to HIS POWER that is at work in us! (Ephesians 3:20, emphasis mine)

Quote of the week:

"We are changing from being a spiritually dry, consuming Church that relies on the ministry of others to find their destiny, to becoming a living, breathing army of people who are productive and anointed." Graham Cooke
