“The River of Revelation”
John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.
Gen. 2:11-14 PISON, GIHON, HIDDEKEL (TIGRIS), EUPHRATES

Matt 16:15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”17 And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.
REVELATION THAT COMES FROM GOD CHANGES YOUR IDENTITY!
2 KINDS OF KNOWLEDGE; SENSE KNOWLEDGE & REVELATION KNOWLEDGE.
John 20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples were saying to him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” 26 After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.”28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”
THIS MEANS THAT THE OPERATION BY WHICH HE CONVINCES PEOPLE IS UNDENIABLE IF YOU LISTEN TO IT.
1 Cor 14:2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.
1 Cor 2:7 But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory;
Col 2:3 “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Prov 2:7 Say’s he stores up sound wisdom for the upright.
GOD PUTS HIS TREASURES OUT THERE WHERE YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE SOME HUMILITY TO FIND THEM.
7 But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;
WILLIAM B. “MAN DOES NOT DISCOVER GOD. GOD REVEALS HIMSELF”
9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”
10 For to us God revealed, (Unveild) them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
ANYTHING YOU GET FROM GOD COMES BY REVELATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,
13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words (Language).
Praying in the Holy Spirit is a “revelation language”.
THE HIDDEN THINGS WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT WE NOT ONLY HAVE TO RECEIVE THEM BUT WE HAVE TO SPEAK THEM IN ORDER FOR THEM TO COME ABOUT
John 14:16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Carpenter’s helper), that He may be with you forever; 17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
John 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.
