The Flowing River!
As believers we need to be in touch with the Living God on a daily basis. We will not make it in this life unless we dwell in Psalm 91′s Secret Place of the Most High. Jesus wants to “know” us intimately. The Holy Spirit has been poured out so that Jesus would be real to us believers; more than a doctrine, belief system or a denomination. We need to contact God daily and hear from Him.
The Flowing River is an Old Testament pattern for doing just that. Many people have discovered the marvelous glory of intimacy with God through this teaching. Whatever your affliction, Jesus’ finished work on the Cross is sufficient. Our problem is believing that. When we enter His presence, we can believe it all! (Larry Chkoreff; The Flowing River)
“There will I meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony (Exodus 25:22).
A quote from Watchman Nee from his book A Table in the Wilderness. ”What is the basis of our communion with God? It is His glory. At the mercy seat with its shadowing cherubim we have fellowship with-God, and they are “cherubim of glory.” It is in the place where God’s glory is manifested, with its implied judgment upon man, that we find mercy there and they’re alone. Cannot God, being God, show mercy where he will? No, he can only show mercy where his moral glory is also maintained. He does not divorce the mercy seat from the cherubim.
It is the shed blood that makes communion possible for sinful man. Because of it God can show mercy without violating his glory; he can commune with man without denying himself. Thus the blood of Christ is essential to fellowship, absolutely essential. Nevertheless it is not the basis of fellowship. When I commune with blood at his mercy seat it is not on the precious blood I gaze, but on the glory. The veil is taken away, and with unveiled face we all behold the glory of God.”
God help us to enter into your presence today!
