To know about the divine stream and to speak of it is not adequate; we must consider before the Lord very soberly: am I in the reality of this divine stream in my daily experience?
This book considers how we may be in that reality, drawing practical lessons from how the divine stream is pictured in two different portions of the word. First, it looks at the divine stream in the very beginning, in the garden of Eden, and how it divided into four different branches (Gen. 2:10-14). Second, it considers the stream as it flowed out from the built-up dwelling place of God in Ezekiel 47.
From the Preface:
At the beginning and end of the divine revelation God shows us a river. He further reveals throughout the Scriptures that He reaches and works with humanity as a divine flow. What does the Bible tell us about this stream of God? As those who desire to serve and know Him in His economy today, where and how can we experience this flowing God?
The messages in this book focus upon these two questions. They were given during a conference in January 2003 in Toledo, Ohio, to those serving the churches in the Great Lakes area. The spoken words bore witness of the divine stream to those present. What a wonderful blessing they became to those who heard! They are presented here in printed form to all who desire to know God in His operation today.
Those who love God long to be kept in the sphere of His blessing and operation and to see His work on the earth progress. It is with this longing in view that this book is presented to God’s children.
