Ezekiel 47:3-5 – 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. 4 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. 5 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.
There are four dimensions in the Spirit referred to in this verse. If we ever really want to experience the supernatural in our lives like we should, we are going to have to go deeper in the Spirit. The river, in this passage, represents the Holy Spirit.
1st Dimension – Ankle Deep Experience – Here is where you find people who are just church-goers. They got saved and that’s the furthest they went. Their faith is still at the same level it was in the beginning.
2nd Dimension – Knee Deep Experience – This is prayer totally depended upon the Lord. You may ask, what’s the problem here? Well, Jesus never did a miracle without a human. If you want to experience supernatural miracles, it is going to take you and Jesus to make it happen.
3rd Dimension – Loin Experience – Here is a portrayal of the miracle working power of God. It represents the manner in which the Holy Spirit works on the earth.
4th Dimension – The River That You Cannot Pass Over – The river is over your head, where you have to swim in faith and flow in the supernatural. In the river is where we all need to be; where we get lost in the Spirit and completely soaked in the Holy Ghost.
It’s time for you to get in deeper than you can handle. Some people play around in the water, just kicking it around. Afraid to go any deeper because they don’t want to lose control.
Jumping in the river is an act of faith. Now is the time, for you to jump in the river, where the fish are alive and the provisions are bigger than you can talk about. Where it’s full of joy and full of life. You are going to jump in the river and tell the Lord, “If YOU don’t get me out, I won’t make it. Lord, if YOU don’t catch me, I’ll drown.”
Anytime you are dealing with anything, just say, “I’ll be right back, I’m going to jump in the river and when I get back, you better not be here!” Jump in the river, where the supernatural is! Jump in, where the miracles are! Jump in, where if it hasn’t been made, God is going to make it for you! Jump in the river, into the place where satan can’t go! Jump in the river, where Jesus went and came out victorious!
