The Tide of the Spirit

The Tide of the Spirit

“In my vision, the man brought me back to the entrance of the Temple. Behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward. “(Ezekiel 47:1) INDEED, “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.”(Ps. 46:4)

The question is not whether the tide of the Spirit will flow on in our generation, but whether you and I will be caught up into that tide. We have a glorious heritage from the past, but we also have the solemn responsibility of passing it on. If we fail to fill our role in God’s purpose for this present time, He will seek out others to do so. The fruit of the past has been possible because men of God stayed in the main stream of His purpose.

Now it is we who have the privilege of offering ourselves to Him that He may speed a little further on His course. If He can drive a way for Himself through our lives, then that will be our greatest glory. If not, He will still go on, but will have to turn in some other direction, and we shall have the tragic experience of being by-passed. It is not merely the proclamation of God’s truth that is needed today; it is the release in human lives of the risen Christ to whom that truth points. This happens only as we ourselves are caught up in the Spirit’s on-flowing tide. Whoever is thirsty, let him come, and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Rev. 22:17)

I receive the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of my understanding being enlightened. And I am not conformed to this world but am transformed by the renewing of my mind. My mind is renewed by the Word of God. (Eph. 1:17,18; Rom. 12:2)
Praise God!
