THESIS: Brief Perspective …
FOR IN THE LAST DAYS THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD WILL INCREASE Daniel 12
Wading Deeper Into The River of God by Mark Virkler : THESIS Paper by Manni-Johns: The book, Wading Deeper Into The River of God, looks at knowing God by His Holy Spirit from an external perspective to an internal one; a biblical flow experience based on the abandonment of oneself to the Holy Spirit. Since my salvation in, 1984, I had a different experience then everyone I knew; including the author of this book. The book is extremely accurate in describing how to become intimate with God; as Adam was in the cool of the day before the Fall. For 21st century mankind, the book is essential to living out the 6 doctrines of biblical text; providing the power of the Holy Spirits coming. As examined by Mark Virkler’s personal experience in Wading Deeper into the River of God; human reasoning, analytic mind games and just plain pursuing erroneous tradition have disabled, disallowed and impaired most from entering deeper waters. Jesus told Peter come to me, Peter impaired by head response, fisherman reasoning instincts and a severe lack of knowledge led him to take his eyes off the Lord, the Spirit response and place them on the issue, the water. This was corrected in Peter, when after crucifixion Peter, studied starting with the book of Daniel as instructed, by Christ Jesus, in Matthew 24:15 referenced to Daniel, Joel, Amos, Hosea, Zechariah, etc.; Peter understood he was looking at apocalyptic future prophecy, since immediate prophecy had just fulfilled. When Peter encountered the next prophetic event in Acts 2, he was prepared, capable and obediently able to accurately state; “this is that, spoken by the prophet Joel”. With multitudes of biblical examples demonstrating the earthly actions of Christ, the learned experience of Peter and the evangelizing efforts of Paul, who was sent to the lands of the Gentiles, at the time the Old Testament Middle East; that the Times of the Gentiles could be prophetically be fulfilled. Christ spoke and demonstrated what the Father said to Him, instantly. Wading Deeper into the River of God outlines why we are not doing the same and how, why and when we can correct our biblical behavior; so many things would be different. Matthew 24 shows Christ at the 2nd Temple, Acts 2 shows repetition of Feast celebrations after Christ had been crucified; today there is no (Christian) justification for never having seen the inside of a Synagogue, participated in a Passover Seder, studied during the 50 days of Shavuot as Peter did or for that matter, Sabbath which Isaiah 66 carefully explains all mankind will attend; why do we not even know what is inside the places Christ would frequent or which biblical geographic places the Nazarene frequented with His Disciples; why have we not visited His homeland, Israel. The Virkler book re-adjusts, the reader, from (I) think; to I hear my Father say, being guided only and continually by the Holy Spirit. Wading Deeper into the River of God, describes how to take self out of the decision process, to readjust man to the proper biblical perspective …it is not I who live but Christ in me. Nearly everything written in the Virkler book was new to my understanding of how extremely traditional others were raised up in the things of God. I can now clearly see why so many who have started with such passionate callings only to be shipwrecked by moving their success away from God, back to tradition. The Hebrew Bibles explicit word is to hear; “Hear Oh Israel…The Lord Our God, the Lord is One” Deuteronomy 6:4-9; meaning it is another god and another seed which prays before murdering. Jesus, the Seed of the Woman supplemented, Jeremiah’s New Covenant with the power received once the Holy Spirit came, Acts 2, the power included the ability to hear the Holy Spirit speak life to the Spirit of man; being available to man for advice, guidance and comfort. How sad to find man relying on his natural mind reasoning, rather then the Holy Spirit. Some time ago I spoke with one pastor, at a Florida conference, he was in tears as he carefully explained, if he taught the Hebrewheritage Curriculum on the book of Daniel as it is laid out in a linear manner in scripture, it would cause a church split; he was a known; well respected Messianic pastor. He could not release his own reasoning that yoked his success to the people rather than to God; the tears (in the middle of the hotel lobby) were his wrangling with being confronted with choice (most pastors have endured a lot to get where they are, their gift is light but reasoning is flawed by the issue of the water being deep); the voice of the Holy Spirit vs. wrecking the church he just built and stabilized. The Bible has always been a storyline, man has chosen to look at it in every manner other than a consecutive storyline, with a goal and a purpose; which begins after the Fall with the words of Genesis 3:15, “your seed, her Seed; the storyline has a middle, we are living the Biblical history and a finale, post Armageddon, Eternity; many will say Lord, Lord and to many He will say I never knew you. Other will be told enter in… I came across Daniel 9 long before …Wading Deeper, it served to confirm understanding the Bible is left, right brain and yielded to the Holy Spirit; Bible is both historic and scientific, intelligently traceable by declaration and definition, to show us things which must come to pass. Revelation 1:1, Daniel 2:28 …a God in Heaven that reveals mysteries; to the fulfillment of the prophecies; presented in biblical storyline timeline to be tracked in the same prophetic manner given; to arrive at the truth of what the Bible is all about; in other words it is an anthology on the thoughts, plans and purposes of the Creator. It is the Angel Gabriel standing by Daniel relaying prophetic information from the Book of Truth. The intelligent tracking is found explicitly in the prophetic books of Daniel and Revelation, with commentary and reference works supporting in other books …Daniel stated I understood by the, BOOKS! The books providing great minute detail of prophetic events, as the events are revealed. Peter used the prophetic storyline to speak in Acts 2, we are to use it to speak on the books related to End Time Messianic events of Isaiah 63; the returning Conquerer. We too should, as events occur, be equipped to say, this is that; it is part of our power enabled by the Holy Spirit. As I came across the works of Mark and Patti Virkler; I found also Evelyn Klumpenhouwer’s, Talking With Jesus; adding further to my already 24/7 Holy Spirit yielding, leading and obeying; more confirmation came from Write The Vision by L. Ralph, based on the text of Hababbuk 2:14, 3:1-19; it was the best ever to have counselors (by their books) who knew what I was talking about. The present book, Wading Deeper Into The River of God, represents an articulation given to the Virkler’s, even as one hid their Holy Spirit lifestyle from the other and one walked and talked for many years moving toward his in the cool of the day flow experience, in order to instruct others (the Global Community) in spontaneous flow. God used Mark to articulate by example the meaning of,” draw closer to God”, and He shall by His Spirit draw closer to you, a step by step experience, delivered to Mark, to deliver to mankind. How Great is that. The Bible says God will have a Garden experience on earth; we want and will have the ultimate Garden experience walking in the cool of the day with both the, Father and the Son. It is “spontaneous thought”; spontaneous speech; clear direction; words biblically aligned with the Creator, which will make the Bride of Christ clean. Wading Deeper Into The River of God is linear in format, verse by verse, [Mark’s] personal storyline, “flowed out”, to mankind, therefore, effective in delivering the expected result of drawing men closer to God, Abraham’s son Joseph like many of us were endowed as a child with flow, interpreting dreams and seeing visions at home, as well as, in Egypt (foreign lands); like Mark Virkler in whom Father taught the method he lived through to teach others the unique experience to capture left, right and third brain activity, tactile, that all men may arrive at the same place as declared of Joseph …”in as much as thou art a man in whom is the Spirit of God.” Genesis 41:39; Daniel 5:11 We must repent! We admit as Daniel for not knowing; we have to read and meditate on Wading Deeper In The River Of God; adding Evelyn Klumpenhouwer’s; Talking With Jesus, as the companion book as initially presented by the Virkler ministry. Without Wading through the river of God; unfortunately; many are left all over the globe without the full operation of the Holy Spirit in their lives; this amounts to the negative aspect of II Timothy 2:15; lacking the content of the Virkler book the results become evident, no Holy Spirit no power; not operating in the Holy Spirit 24/7 can lead to … the workman being ashamed; operating outside of the Holy Spirit, the Word cannot be rightly divided; since the Holy Spirit is not allowed to prepare the Christian for such a time as this; Terrorism is upon us; the prime recognizable prophetic event of the Latter Days. Now is when, “Wading Deeper into the River of God” … is required. The End Times biblical storyline drama will play-out with or without the Christian in his correct biblical posture of knowing this is that spoken by the prophet|s. The End Times Wicked Systems is upon us in the 21st century, the same amount of time Gabriel stated it took him to get to Daniel, to show Daniel what was written in the Book of Truth, and us. We must remember Jesus only said what he heard His Father say, His Father said, tell my disciples, Matthew 24:15 … Wading Deeper into the River of God is the starting point for wading deeper. My response includes a note about the picture I use as my MSN e-mail account profile. The picture is a view of myself in the front of a wide vista view of Bethlehem in the background. We have lost Bethlehem to Islam on our watch, simply because we have not used the Power left to us in the form of the Holy Spirit and his gifts.
