Let the river flow. For the holy spirit to flow we have to create a favorable atmosphere. The river only flows when there are no obstacles or barriers. Barriers to the flow of the holy spirit: 1) Attitude, 2) Ignorance (1 Corinthians 1:12), 3) Fear of the manifestation and 4) Despise -
too much rationality and spiritual background. For the holy spirit to manifest we have to create a conducive atmosphere, through: 1) Obedience, 2) Faith, 3) Prayer and 4) Unity.
Let the river flow calls for the manifestation of the holy spirit. Holy spirit will manifest in two ways: In us (Galatians 5:22) and Through us (1 Corinthians 12:1). When the holy spirit manifests in us our character is transformed to be Christ-like and through us
through spiritual gifts to bless others. The holy spirit can manifest in different ways, in each one of us, for the common good and for God to be glorified. Hence we have to aspire for the manifestation of the holy spirit.
Let the river flow refers to the flow of the holy spirit. The gift of the church is the holy spirit and the gift of the world is Jesus Christ. The weakness of the church is that we are attracted to the works of the holy spirit rather than the person of the holy spirit. Those that believe in Jesus Christ must receive the holy spirit. When one is born again the next step is the baptism of the holy spirit. Baptism in the holy spirit will awaken your spirit (Acts 19: 2). Speaking in tongues signifies baptism of the holy spirit. Speaking in tongues connects us to the spiritual dimension.
To enter and experiment new things from God you are to be thirsty for the Holy Spirit. When you are thirsty you do not remain indifferent for transformation requires thirst. When you have a great desire you become innovative. To live in the prophetic: 1. Be conscious of the person of the Holy Spirit. 2. Be available to the Holy Spirit. For the Holy Spirit will seek and use those that are available.
