Many thanks for joining the class once again. Welcome to the Elapino platform. We move very quickly to the 4th level of depth. We have started a sub series even inside our main series that says come, drink – John 7:37

Ezekiel 47:2-5 shows us that there are depths in the river, there are depths in God. Romans 11:33 confirms that.

O the depths of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of God.

There are depths in God and we are not all at the same level. That’s why some people are classified as Men of God. Not really in the title, but in the depths they have attained with God. You don’t start and get there the same day. You have to stay there and move consistently further and deeper into that ocean until it overflows you. That’s our topic for today. That overwhelming and overflow level. The level where you’re already swimming in the water

That’s the exact level of depth that God is always inviting us to. Let’s read Ezekiel 47:5 to see the fourth level. Remember that the first level is the ankle or feet level, which is interpreted with Ephesians 6:15, talking about you sharing the joy of salvation.

The second level is the knee level,found in Ezekiel 47:4a and this was interpreted by philippians 2:10 – At the name of Jesus , Evey know must bow. Talks about surrender…

Then we got to the third level, the LOINS level. And explaining that with Ephesians 6;14,

[14]Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Now, we’re at the 4th level of depth. It’s the level where you’re now swimming in God’s grace. You are already excited with the joy of your salvation, your feet have been prepared for the gospel of peace, and you are already completely surrendered at the second level and at the third level, truth has taken over you. You have also leant to speak the truth of God’s word to Every situation. For example when, when the world says you’re poor, you say no, I’m rich, because 2 Corinthians 8:19 says so.

Now, that’s not all, let’s go to the 4th level, where you’re now swimming in the river, as we see in Ezekiel 47:5.

Ezekiel 47:5
[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.

May we get to this level where we’re always swimming in God’s presence, in His instruction, swimming in the Holy Ghost at all times in Jesus Name. That’s the level I want to be Lord. That’s the place of rest. It’s a place where there’s no worry. Hallelujah. That’s the 4th level of depth we’re going in this river. That’s the level He is inviting us to. The level where you swim in his overflow.

But wait a minute, before the water moved from the third level – the waist level – to where it now overwhelms you, you know that from the waist upwards is about half of the body length. From the waist upwards, before you get overwhelmed with the water, the water gets to your hand and also to your chest, before it then gets to your head.

In your hand is the shield of faith. Hallelujah, according to Ephesians 6:16. You know we’re comparing Ezekiel 47:2-6 with Ephesians 6:12-16.

In Ephesians 6:16, he says:

[16]Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

You know you grip the shield of faith with your hand. And I’m saying that from the waist, before you get to the head where the water overwhelms you, it must have passed your hand. It’s important that faith is in your hand. Faith is your biggest tool of defence. Bible says in that same Ephesians 6:12:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The devil will not want you to get to that level. And so, he wages war, in any form. At work, in your family, your children, addictions, so you have to resist these temptations. The Bible says watch and pray that you may not fall into temptations.

Ephesians 6:12 again says

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The instrument of defence you need against these is the shield of faith. There will be darts thrown at you in this race. As you approach to swim in the overwhelming water, the river we’ve been talking about, that River is not just there without opposition. To drink and swim, you will meet opposition, but you’ve been equipped with faith.

Check out again, John 7:37 which says if any man thirsts, let him come unto me and drink. Then in verse 38, he immediately says: ‘He that believes in me”, Hallelujah, that’s talking about faith, the shield of faith in your hand. Meaning you need to be equipped with faith to be able to drink. Our Lord Jesus knows that the devil will want to stop us from coming to drink and moving further into the river until it overflows and overwhelms us, so, He quickly reminded us in John 7:38 that we need faith, he that believeth in me. So, faith is involved, faith is needed.

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench the fiery darts if the wicked.

There will be fiery darts thrown at you. The arrows come in the form of worry, sometimes despair, fear, anger, anxiety. So Faith is what you need. Faith is a whole series, but here, I’m saying that you need faith. Before the water moves from your waist to overflow you, it must have reached your hands and on your hand is the shield of faith. Faith is your biggest weapon of defence in these last days.

But that’s not all. We move up again and the water gets to your chest level. Once again, the Bible addresses that. We’re moving back and forth in Ephesians 6:12-16. Now, in Ephesians 6:14b, Bible says

Having on the breastplate of righteousness.

The breastplate of righteousness is the shield on your chest. You have a shield of faith in your hand. But you also have something like a bulletproof on your chest.

So, you need righteousness. The Bible says righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to a people. Righteousness is required if you must swim in God’s overflow. But your righteousness needs the righteousness of God to stand. Righteousness is important if you must reach this overwhelming flow and overflowing depth. So, it’s an all encompassing journey. It’s like a summary of our race in Christ.

Once again remember what the Bible says in Romans 11:33

[33]O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Lord, we thank you for this level that you’re taking us to. We want to grow in wisdom, we want to grow in knowledge, we know you’ve given us everything that pertains to life and Godliness through the knowledge of you who have called us to glory and virtue.

Indeed there are depths,may we all go deeper in God in Jesus Name. Amen.

Of course, we cannot end the class without having you come to Jesus if you haven’t. I know you want this depth, but you must start the journey today. Say Lord Jesus, I step my feet into this river. The river of grace, truth, faith, prayer, righteousness. Lord I come to you, I wash my hands and heart in your blood and in your water. I repent of my sins and I forsake them. I accept you as my Lord and saviour. Save me Lord, write my name in your book of Life. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Once again I congratulate you. Welcome to God’s kingdom.

Until next time when we meet again by God’s grace, bye for now. Amen
