HEARDThere is a river.  The answer is no. 


QUICKENED MEMORY:  The Lord reminded me that a few days ago I heard an almost audible voice say, “WHY?”  It was a profound question that really impacted me.  I understood it was some how related to a question I had about why the Lord passes some people by.


Today, as I was praying about this, I turned to the following:



“In vision I saw a large number of pools, all beautifully tiled and filled with the water of God.  All of them, save one, were whole and without any cracks or breaks at all.  This one, was completely different from the rest: it had a large, crooked, jagged break or rent which looked like an open crack running almost all the way through it.  In spite of this jagged crack, this broken pool was completely filled with the water of God, fresh, beautiful and filled with light and life.  Through the crack, these waters continually poured out; nevertheless, from some unseen source they were continually being renewed and did not diminish at all.


The water of God also filled all the other pools which had no cracks or breaks in them, but because it had not flowed out, it had become stagnant and spoiled, and was no longer attractive.  No more living water had flowed into these unbroken pools.


Afterwards, I saw a large multitude of people come to drink at the place where the water poured forth from the broken pool, but they could not reach it.  Even though these waters greatly attracted them and they desired to partake of this water flowing in light and life, they could not receive one single drop because this water poured forth in abundance as if directed to another place.  It flowed directly to another people as if intended for them, and they were given all they desired to drink.

Matt 13:53-58 NKJV

Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. 54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, "Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?" 57 So they were offended at Him.  But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."  58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.




They started going through this reasoning, and they were offended at Him and that offense shut down their capacity to receive from Him.  There is something in the minds of men that can shut down that atmosphere.  This is the Son of God, the Spirit of God is upon Him without measure, unlimited!




Matt 10:40-41 NKJV

"He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.  41 He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward . And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.


Luke 4:23-27 NKJV

He said to them, "You will surely say this proverb to Me, 'Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country.'"  24 Then He said, "Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country.  25 But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land;  26 but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.  27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian." 


Mark 6:4-6 NKJV

 But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house."  5 Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.  6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.


“He took the prophet (Elijah) away from his home because the familiarity of the prophet made them incapable of receiving the prophet’s reward.  There was a lot of hungry people inside the nation, but He sent Elijah outside the nation because God wanted to give it to someone.  Why did he have to go outside?  Because if you honor a prophet in the name of a prophet, that’s what gives you access to their reward.


It’s the person next to you that the Spirit of God rests upon so powerfully that, it is sometimes hard to draw upon the grace that rests upon their life.  We have been called by the Lord to recognize one another after the Spirit.  The spirit of discernment is not just discerning the demonic realm.  It is recognizing the Spirit of God on the spirit of a man.  It is recognizing the quality and character of a man. 


Do you know what it is to give honor?  It is to recognize the glory that rests upon another.  To recognize a friend of God.   Someone God has visited, has empowered.  It’s not that I know people by their blemishes, their faults and failures, their history, their quirks, idiosyncrasies.  It’s the fact that I have been put into the position that if I do not honor the person for the Spirit of God that rests upon them, I can not benefit from what they bring to the table


A culture of honor values who a person is, without stumbling over who they are not.  Many people have cried out for God to do something in your life and He sent it to you.  But He sent it to you in a frail, blemished vessel.  And with the inability to recognize the Spirit of God upon another person that’s been within arm’s reach, but you are starving and famine so to speak.  And there is a feast within arm’s reach.  It is a culture of honor that recognize the Spirit of God on another person that helps us to learn how to humble ourselves, even to someone much younger in the Lord than we are, so that they might impart something into us and prayer for us. 


Learning how to value people, the gifts that they are given, and the Spirit of God that rests upon them is one of the absolute keys for creating an atmosphere where miracles become normal...”  {END Excerpt Quotes from Bill Johnson}
