IT IS GOD’S DESIRE FOR THIS GENERATION.
Greeting in the name of Yashua, our Lord and Savior,
I am not sure just how to begin…..my spirit, for lack of better words, feels hearing
rumblings from the heavenly realm….concerning WHO LIVES IN US. I was I am not
sure just how to begin…..my spirit, for lack of better words, feels having a hard
time getting started writing; so many thoughts bombarding my mind. Than while
dancing, in worship, I heard the LORD say, ‘Begin with a prelude’. So that is what
you are receiving this week.
WHO IS LIVING IN ME
What Is My Purpose?
While in worship I was asking the Holy Spirit to help me pull what He was giving me
together for a message and the words, ‘Begin with a prelude’, rang in my ears and
the scripture Ezekiel 47:6-9. I believe there are children of God all over this world
who are seeking, who are thirsty for more wisdom, more knowledge and more
understanding of Who He Is in us; but first I want to pray:
Holy Spirit I ask You to speak to every heart that reads this message that all will
pray as they read and receive the revelation in a greater way; as to Who it is that
lives in each one; and the power and authority we as Your children have because
Satan will try to deafen the ears of Your people but I ask that You take the veil from
their minds, unplug their ears, remove the scales from their eyes that they may see
deeper into the knowledge of the Spirit of God; as He reveals more and more truth.
Amen and amen and amen.
Ezekiel 47:6-9: (Emphasis may by added within the scripture for clarity or expansion
of text by me)
He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” then he brought me and
returned me to the bank of the river. When I returned there, along the bank of the
river, were very many trees on one side and the other. Then he said to me: “This
water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the
sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living
thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great
multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and
everything will live wherever the river goes.
There is so much in these verses for us to see, so let us begin dissecting them:
Let’s start, I will be paraphrasing, ‘he brought me and returned me to the bank of
the river. As with John, an angel led Ezekiel around explaining his visions. First he
brought and returned him to the bank of the River (Beginning, Christ, power
source); where it all started. He took him to the place where he began reminding
him by saying, ‘Son of man, have you seen this? (Do you remember?)
Do you remember when Jesus/Yashua brought you out of darkness into His
marvelous light? (Selah) Stop here and reflect upon that time. The Holy Spirit is not
saying go back to the beginning and start over, no, no , no we know too much for
that, but what He is saying is remember what it felt like, remember how invincible
you felt, the power you felt; it moved you/ compelled you to proclaim the Christ ‘in’
you; Nothing, I mean nothing, could stop you.
Next he returned and saw, ‘along the bank of the river, were very many trees on
one side and the other’; he remembered the peace, the joy, the powerful presence
of his God; which took away any and all fears and replaced it with holy boldness,
power and authority.
This water flows toward the eastern region (Israel, His chosen nation first) goes
down into the valley (reaches the Gentles) and enters the sea (the world). When it
reaches the sea, its waters are healed. I do not see any stuttering here…….
everywhere the River (Christ) went, everything the River touched was healed;
Let us continue: And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the
rivers go, will live. This says ‘every living thing that moves’, that does not mean
just some but everything that moves when the ‘rivers’ (notice the word river is
now rivers) touch it, it will live. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
Do you see it? When we touch Jesus/Yashua (the River), when we go to the power
source, we become the ‘rivers’ that take the Word to the nations. We are the living
epistles (the rivers) flowing throughout the lands with the electrifying/powerful
word of the Living God.
Next it says: There will be a very great multitude of fish, (many souls
saved/redeemed) why? Because these ‘waters’ go there. We are Christ’s epistles,
His mouthpiece saying, “yes we will go into all the world preaching and teaching
Christ, the hope of glory.” Continuing: For they will be healed, and everything will
live wherever the river goes. Wherever God’s people preach/teach souls will be
redeemed, healed and live because we returned to the ‘power source’…the
River….realizing who this is ‘in’ us…….the CHRIST of Calvary.
Now I know some of you are relating this to Revelation 22:1, which says:
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from
the throne of God and of the Lamb.
This will even cause us to see more clearly what the Spirit is telling us today.
The Greek word ‘pure’ in this verse is katharos; Stong’s Exhausted Concordance
#2513. It means: Without blemish, clean, undefiled, pure. The word describes
physical, ceremonial and ethical purity. So in Revelation 22 it tells me that
Jesus/Yashua ‘is’ this ‘River of Life.’
But let us look a little further and see how much deeper the Spirit wants us to go
today; to see……Who it is that is living ‘in’ us, who this Living Water is: John 7:37-38
….”If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the
Scripture has said, ‘out of his heart will flow rivers of living waters’.” Another Bible
translation says, From his ‘innermost being’ will flow rivers of living water’. And
still another one says it this way: ‘out of his belly’ shall flow rivers of living water.’
However we say it, it is ‘living water’, ‘life giving’ water flowing, from us to a
hungry, starving, lost world.
We see in Ezekiel and Revelation that Jesus/Yashua is like a river; a pure, living
Now in John 14: 17 & 20 it says:
“the Spirit (Holy Spirit of God, third person of the Godhead) of truth, (Jesus/Yashua
is the Way, Truth and Life – John 14:6) whom the world cannot receive, because it
neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will
be ‘in’ you….At that day you will know that I am ‘in’ My Father and you ‘in’ Me, and I
Are we seeing the picture? Because of ‘the Promise’ of the Father, Christ having
all authority and power in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18) we also have this
same power and authority to put satan under our feet, tread over serpents (Luke
10:19); and are commanded to go preach and teach (Matthew 28:19-20) the
unsearchable riches of CHRIST (Ephesians 3:8). Acts 1:4-5 says:
“And being assembled together with them, He (Jesus/Yashua) commanded them
not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for ‘the Promise’ of the Father, ‘which,”
He said, ‘you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall
be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
In my Bible the word ‘Promise’ has been capitalized…..that must mean something
special. So let us step in a little further.
‘The Promise’ from the Father is the Holy Spirit ‘in’ us. What are we seeing here?
We know that carnal does not understand the spiritual and we must see this
spiritually so we can receive what the Spirit is telling us for strength and
understanding of Who It Is That Lives Within Us.
We know that the Godhead is three in One. There is one Godhead in three parts:
Father God, Jesus/Yashua His Son and the Holy Spirit. We can only understand and
receive this knowledge through the Spirit, according to the scriptures;
I Corinthians 2:14:
But the natural/carnal man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they
are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually
As Christians we say, ‘I know who lives in me, its Jesus/Yashua…..but I ask you
during a storm, when something unexpected happens, a crisis comes what is your
first reaction? Selah (Stop/think/reflect/meditate)
If we understand that ‘the Promise’ of the Holy Spirit dwelling ‘within’ us is our
access to the Father and the Son ‘immediately’ and ‘continuously’……He is CHRIST
IN US the hope of glory. And if we understand the ‘mystery’ of the ages than we
begin to understand the Holy Spirit in us is the power and authority of the Father
and Christ our Redeemer.
The mystery (secret of hidden truth) which has been hidden from ages and from
generations, but ‘now’ has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to
make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:
which is Christ in You, the hope of glory.
The Holy Spirit has given us a lot to absorb today. We will continue next week with
much more glorious revelations. I’m not saying we have not known these things,
but the Holy Spirit is saying we need to ‘go back/return’ to the River bank and
remember……we are electrified/powerful people in Christ.
