The Changing Church Part 5
The sea looked calm, but gray and ominous. There was a feeling of rising, pent up anger just waiting to surface. Something was about to happen—to explode—as the Holy Spirit seemed to brood over the waters as He did in the beginning: “. . . and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2, KJV).

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. (Psalms 46:4)
What can the psalmist be saying in this 46th chapter of the Psalms? Perhaps, he saw a similar vision — much more enhanced and infinitely inspired. It is interesting, in the light of the fourth vision given to me, to reflect on the river versus the stream. Why doesn’t the river cause gladness as the streams do?
