 Voice from Horizon: The Overflowing Experience In God

“Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar. Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looked eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 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. Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over:  for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over. And said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.”

     Ezekiel 47 vs 1- 6

We are going to go into the stages or the steps that we see from verse 3 to verse 6. Those steps are very critical and important in what the lord will be doing with us. I believe strongly that we are in a time and season of revival. When God has prophesied that he will be sending to us both the latter and the former rain in the same season and I believe so strongly we are in that season. I perceive so strongly in my spirit that we are in the season of revival. A season where we need to tap into the frequency of God to understand what God is doing in this season. To understand what God is set to do and the movement, the tide that is coming with the wind.

And that is why this scripture is very important for us to understand in this season and it talks about the water. It talks about water flowing from the right side of the temple. Remember that Jesus Christ our lord, after the father had given to him authority and power. The bible says that the place of glory of Jesus is at the right side of the father and the bible talks about the fact that all authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus by the father and Jesus is now sitting at the right side of the throne of the father and in this scripture, the bible makes us to understand that, that water was running out on the right side so it is talking about the source of that water. The source of that water is not man. It is not a man-made water. It is not a flow that a man can control. It is a flow that a man can control, it is a flow that is divine. It is a flow that is from the head of the church, Christ himself.  

Ezekiel was narrating an experience and in that experience he said in verse 3 “And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits….” Until that man measured a thousand cubits, Ezekiel could not experience the water. When Jesus wanted to ascend to heaven, he said I will not leave you as orphans but the Holy spirit, I will send to you. He will lead you in all truth. He will give what is mine, he will give it to you. So, after Jesus has ascended into heaven; The holy spirit; it is he that leads us into all truth, it is he that is the journey in Christ. And the journey was what Ezekiel talked about.

“And this man went out and he measured a thousand cubits and he, this man brought me through the waters. I want us to understand this critically, no spiritual experience can be man orchestrated. You cannot produce a spiritual experience on your own. It has to be God bringing you through, it has to be God measuring for you the thousand cubits. What is God saying to us about measuring a thousand cubits. He is saying to us that when he measures, every experience we go through is a product of our walk with him. Every experience that you actually go through as a believer is a spiritual experience that he takes you through himself and it’s a journey. It doesn’t just happen to you. It has to be a product of your walk with him. No experience just drops on you.

It has to be a product of your walk with him. Are you walking with the lord? Do you have a functional relationship with the Holy spirit because that is when he can measure a thousand cubits with you. You have to walk with God to a point that he leads you through the waters. You cannot go through the waters on your own. He takes you through the waters and he brings you through the water in stages.

Let’s look at this scripture critically, he said; he measured one thousand cubits and he brought me through the waters that the water came up to my ankles. At that point, Ezekiel has just been introduced into the water, he now has a spiritual experience, he now has an experience of God. He has now walked with the Holy spirit to a point that the Holy spirit now takes him through an experience but that experience is called an ankle experience. The waters came to his ankle; that is how much of the experience he is having. The knowledge he is having is just at the ankle. My brothers and my sisters, when you start your work with God, all that you know about God is at your feet. Remember, your ankle is just a little above your feet; It’s at your feet; It is just about your movements. It’s when you move to God that you know God; when you stay around that you know God; that might be your own experience. That might be your own first experience, the ankle experience.

But there is more, in verse 4, he said “Again”, Note the word “again” the first one thousand cubits was not enough to take him from the ankle to another level. The one thousand cubits relationship could only offer him an ankle experience but guess what? Again, he measured another thousand. When he measured another one thousand, see what he said; “and he brought me through the waters” These waters were not repeated for fun but for function. Again, he measured a thousand; you must go further, you must go deeper in God until you experience a deeper experience. You must go deeper. There is a call for deeper. There is another one thousand God is measuring for you. There is another one thousand beyond where you are. You must go deeper.

God is calling us deeper, deep calleth unto deep. The relationship we have with God is deep and he is calling you to the depth of himself. You must go deeper. And then, he said “he measured the one thousand again and brought me through the waters” that was another experience. Now he has gone two thousand with him. The first one thousand and another one thousand. And he said and he brought me through,” the water came up to my waist. Now I’m going deeper. Remember, it was a point of ankle; that was all the depth that I had because I was at one thousand. When he called me deeper and he measured another one thousand and I followed him, I obeyed him and I decided to stick with him. He brought me through in the same water but a deeper depth. This time, my waist; from my waist down I’m in the water, I’m soaked in the water. That’s the kind of experience you have with God when you go deeper, when you choose to go deeper and you will have another spiritual experience that is called the waist experience.

In verse 5, he said again, again two thousand is not enough. There is another place beyond the two thousand, the place that the two thousand cannot get me. There is an experience that the two thousand cannot get me. There is a call that he is making for my deeper commitment, my deeper relationship, for my deeper walk with him that my two thousand cubits cannot get me.

Our God is calling you deeper again and you say, God, I have sacrificed so much for you. I have been following you but remember God is not a shallow God, He is deep.

For you to walk with him, you must understand the depth. No wonder Apostle Paul was talking about the heights of God; what can separate us from the love of Christ, he was talking about the heights, the depths of love. There is so much in him. Remember two thousand cubits cannot get you to the next experience, you must go deeper. An experience where you are overwhelmed in the water, no dryness. The deep where God is taking us to. A place of the overflow.
