“Great Mighty River”
I have been in a process the past couple years with the Lord as He has been preparing me to launch out in writing what He’s been giving me to share prophetically with the Body of Christ. This is the launching of my 1st Blog Article, “Giant Mighty River”. I’m still in the process of setting up a platform. Please feel free to share with others as led by the Lord God.
I had the privilege of being an invited guest this past Saturday to a small private group of anointed women to hear a friend speak. That night the Lord woke me several times throughout the night with several of these women on my mind. I am a night owl, but that night the Lord put me to sleep early and woke me early Sunday morning.
As I sought the Lord in those early hours, this is what He had not just for these women, but for as He said, “For My front runners on the front-lines.” I heard the Father say, “Listen”. As I stopped to listen in the spirit, I heard the sound of rushing and crashing water. He said, “Four Mighty Rivers”, and I could see the rivers flowing from heaven and converging into one Giant River at the point of a waterfall.
A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers.
Genesis 2:10 | ESV
Four rivers are described at the beginning of creation before the fall. Four is significant throughout scripture as in the “four corners of the earth”. In Ezekiel 47 we now see one river flowing from under the temple, the Living Water, that is the healing and restoration to creation through Jesus.
1 Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. 5 Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. 7 When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. 8 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. 9 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. 12 Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.” Ezekiel 47:1, 5, 7-9, 12 | NKJV
These four Mighty Rivers that converged into one Giant River flowing from heaven is a prophetic picture of His restoration for the entire earth. Creation started in perfection with one river flowing out of Eden that then divided into four rivers to water the garden upon the earth. The Lord is revealing four Mighty Rivers converging into one Giant Mighty River, which is a picture of creation being brought back into perfection through Jesus, the Living Water. This Giant Mighty River is too deep to be crossed; the four have become one.
Holy Spirit prompted me to take note of the boulders at the base of the waterfall. I saw heavenly beings swinging axes and chipping away at the boulders. The water was crushing the boulders and they seem to fold in on them themselves as they are crushed.
The Lord continued, “The boulders of life crush and oppress. But, My water crushes the oppressor. Throw off every weight and burden and surrender to My Mighty River that flows through you. Watch as I crush every boulder of oppression. The Mighty Hand of the Lord your God, My Mighty Hand moves on your behalf.”
May he vindicate the afflicted of the people, save the children of the needy and crush the oppressor. Let them fear You while the sun endures, and as long as the moon, throughout all generations. May he come down like rain upon the mown grass, like showers that water the earth. In his days may the righteous flourish, and abundance of peace till the moon is no more. May he also rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. Psalm 72:4 | NASB
The Lord continued speaking, “You are royalty planted beside My Great River.” I saw His royal people clothed in bright and colorful garments like royalty of old. In Him they are the fruitful trees with healing leaves.
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3| NASB
The Lord continued, “Guard your hearts, for from it flows My Living Water.” The Lord is releasing the Spirit of Wisdom and the Spirit of Counsel upon you.
Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth. “Do not forsake her, and she will guard you; Love her, and she will watch over you. “The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get understanding. “Prize her, and she will exalt you; She will honor you if you embrace her. “She will place on your head a garland of grace; She will present you with a crown of beauty.” My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body. Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:5-9, 20-23 | NASB
And the Lord finished by saying, “Drink deeply of Me and all riches, glory, and majesty will be upon you. Let your light shine for My Glory’s sake.”
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, And You are exalted as head over all. 1 Chronicles 29:11 | NKJV
For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it; For how should My name be profaned? And I will not give My glory to another. Isaiah 48:11 | NKJV
The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God. Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, “Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save
you.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert; the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water; in the haunt of jackals, where they lie down, the grass shall become reeds and rushes. Isaiah 35:1-7 | ESV
In summary, the Lord said, “The boulders of life crush and oppress. But, My water crushes the oppressor. Throw off every weight and burden and surrender to My Mighty River that flows through you. Watch as I crush every boulder of oppression. The Mighty Hand of the Lord your God, My Mighty Hand moves on your behalf. You are royalty planted beside My Great River. Guard your hearts, for from it flows My Living Water. Drink deeply of Me and all riches, glory, and majesty will be upon you. Let your light shine for My Glory’s sake.” You are called to be carriers of His Living Water to a thirsty world. Let His waters break forth.
