Rivers of Living Water

“Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” But this He said in reference to the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:37-39 NASB (in the KJV, verse 38 reads “out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”)

“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, 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.” John 14:15-17 NKJV

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant…

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”

1 Corinthians 12:1: 7-11 NKJV

For there is a river that flows from the very presence of God–right out of God Himself.  And that river brings joy and healing and blessing.  And that river flows continually, throughout eternity, flowing.  And that river now flows even in the spirit and the heart of the believer–that out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water.  Will you yield to the Spirit of God and let that river flow today?  Let that river flow today out of your belly–rivers of life, rivers of healing, and overflow of the life of God, and full of joy, and full of victory, and full of blessing, out of your innermost being, rivers of the Holy Spirit shall flow, and flood your life with the goodness of God.  Yield to the Holy Spirit and let those rivers flow today.  And stir up yourself and the gift of God that’s on the inside of you; and the Spirit of God shall bring a fresh anointing, and fresh oil, and fresh revelation, and fresh joy and new strength and new life shall flow out of your belly–continually flowing day after day after day so that you will be filled…full of joy, full of the Holy Ghost.  Be filled and filled again, and that joy shall flow and shall be a demonstration of the very triumph and victory that is yours.  So yield to the Holy Ghost today and yield to the Spirit of God and that river shall flow, and rivers shall flow, and there shall be an overflow of the blessing of the Lord…more than you can contain–more than you can contain, so yield to the Holy Ghost…open your mouth wide and drink from the presence of the Lord and be filled today.  Hallelujah!

…the anointing of the Holy Spirit…the fresh anointing and fresh oil…that anointing shall destroy every yoke.  It shall be explosive in energy and shall ignite the gift of God on the inside of you.  So now the anointing and a fresh oil and a greater measure of anointing shall come upon you for this time and for this season.  It comes from the very presence of the Lord and the Spirit of God dwelling on the inside of you and fresh oil. And your vision shall increase, and your vision shall be clear, and the things and the dreams of the Spirit of God shall come to pass, even while you’re yielded to the oil of joy…the anointing, the oil of joy shall fill your heart; and it shall cause you to break out of a small place and bring you out into a larger place.  So yield to the Holy Ghost and yield to the anointing.  It’s the anointing that does the work.  It’s the anointing that does the work, so allow the anointing to do a new work in your spirit, in your soul, and in your body, for such a time as this.  And the anointing shall increase, and your latter days shall be greater than your former days.  Thank you, Lord.

then Mark Hankins continued:

Fresh anointing, do you want it?  Yes… Drink from the presence of the Lord…filling us, strengthening us…fresh oil…fresh anointing, the supernatural life and the power… resurrection power, explosive power…filling our soul, filling our life.  Thank you, Lord, for the Holy Ghost.

Thank you, Lord, for the Holy Ghost…  Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah… Thank you, Lord, for the Holy Ghost.  He’s our helper, our strengthener, our intercessor…He’s the Greater One that lives on the inside of us.  The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead…lives in us, dwells in us.  Thank you, Lord, for rivers, rivers…we let those rivers flow.  We let those rivers flow…the very life and the Spirit of God.  We thank you for that today.  In the name of Jesus, Hallelujah!

(Then, followed Mark’s message, “Turn Up Your Joy”)
