Published by: McDougal Publishing P. Dedication To my mother: REV. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. Psalm And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees.
Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. Ezekiel In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.

The theology of the Spirit may be beyond some, but we can all understand the river. God wants us to understand the moving of His Spirit and the sometimes very strange way in which He is operating in this last day and hour, and when we can see the moving of the Spirit of God as a great flowing river, we can better understand how to step into it, and how to learn to flow with its currents.
If we can understand this great river, we can understand the flow of the Spirit of God, for the river is the Holy Spirit, and the flow of the river is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that we are experiencing in this day. In the great river of God we can find everything we need to accomplish His work in these last days. Nothing of what He has called us to is impossible when we submit our will to the will of His great river.
This is the time of harvest, and we are about to reap the greatest harvest the world has ever known. We will do it because of the greatness of the river, not because of any greatness of our own. The fire and the wind and every other aspect of the glory that was revealed to John and Ezekiel and other prophets can be found in the realm of the river.
Let us jump in and enjoy all the benefits that await us. Some are coming to the river because of a pressing personal need, often because they need a healing miracle or a financial miracle. Others are coming because they have a need in their ministry. Never were more demands made on those of us who are involved in ministry, and the burdens placed upon us are often very heavy to bear. Many come simply because of their great thirst for God.
Whatever brings us to the river, if we can all get into it, every need will be supplied. Ruth Ward Heflin Ashland, Virginia. The River Is Here Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?
This people have I formed for myself; they shall show forth my praise. For many years the church has prayed and anxiously awaited another wave of heavenly glory that would lift us out of spiritual lethargy and envelop Well, the wait is over. God is moving by His Spirit all over the world, and all we have to do is step into the revival. The river is here.
Something wonderful is happening. We are conscious of standing in the waters of a heavenly stream. Some of us have taken only small steps away from the shoreline, but many of us are finding ourselves in deeper and deeper water without having to put forth any effort whatsoever. The river is carrying us out. It is no longer difficult for us to move from the ankle-deep water into the knee-deep water and from the knee-deep water into the loin-deep water.
What we are experiencing is so wonderful that sometimes it seems more like a dream than reality. They feel very strange as the Lord possesses them to use for His glory. I sometimes seem to be looking down or looking on as I see what God is doing with my life and for the people. These are wonderful days to be alive. God is doing new things, and I like that.
I have. I am determined to keep reaching into the eternal realm of the Spirit of God, I insist on stepping into new liberty, I refuse to take a single step backward, and I continue to claim new territory in God. God is doing things differently than we could have anticipated. He is sending revival in His own way and is calling for a people who will accept revival on His terms. Some who have been waiting for revival for years have wanted to have it in their own way. People are coming to our campmeetings from all.
Many of those who have attended conferences in recent years have never been in a major conference which had no airconditioning. Still, in spite of the rather basic conditions of the camp, people are willing to come because they are so hungry, and they have heard that the river is with us.
Now, they no longer do that. God does the work. Now people come because they want to be in the atmosphere of the glory. If the glory of God is present, nothing else matters. We have not been able to predict exactly how God would bring revival to any specific area.
Revival is in the river, and the river is here. The same Spirit that moved upon the face of the waters in the book of Genesis and the same Spirit that descended upon the one hundred and twenty believers on the Day of Pentecost in Jerusalem is ready to bring forth revival in your town and in your church and in your household if you will just let Him do it.
Let it flow. As young Pentecostal ministers, we were taught that before we went out to minister to someone seriously ill, we had to spend time in prayer and get ourselves spiritually built up. This is an emergency situation. I called you to be an open channel so that My life could flow out through you. God was letting me know that the river was present and that it would do its work. The woman was instantly healed.
She had not been able to get out of bed for many weeks, but now she got up and walked with me all the way down the corridor to where I had to get the elevator to go back down. You can be an empty riverbed. Just let the river of God flow through you. Let the rhythms of the river begin to come into your spirit.
Let God give you a greater sensitivity to His Spirit, and, as the river begins to flow, allow yourself to be carried away by it. Stop clinging to the shoreline. I know we are afraid of the unknown, but there is no reason to fear God. Let Him carry you away from the realm of your natural thinking. Let Him carry you away into the depths of the river. These waters will carry you to the place of miracles and signs and wonders.
Relax in the waters.
