“Riverfront Property” Connecting in Audio!

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Hi Friends,                               

Here’s a chance to listen to “The Primer” to, Riverfront Property: Connecting at the River of Life.

Keep on the lookout. I am freshly updating the book in audio and will be posting sections here!

LISTEN HERE!  

 

THE PRIMER

This book is motivated by the conviction that history is about to be hijacked by Heaven. For the past two thousand years followers of Yeshua (Jesus) have been praying, “May Your kingdom come on our planet just as it prevails in the highest Heaven.” A colossal answer is bulging above us and about to splash forth with the Return of the King!

Anticipation stimulates preparation. What grander project can there be than preparing a landing strip for our Monarch? I pray Riverfront Property will stimulate those longing for His coming – those preparing the way.

It’s heartening to see little signs and wonders demonstrating this venture is birthed from His heart.  Our daughter Claire had a dream where I was working in a huge library. I was studying about water and was preparing to make a presentation. I told Claire in the dream she too should study about water.  On another occasion a young prophetic friend told me, “God has given you ‘a roar’ like rushing water.”  One woman said Pam and I are like deep wells with fresh, clean water. No one knew I had been working on this project.

You are about to discover two distinct “rivers of Life”.  One refers to a future, tangible watercourse flowing out of a city you find on a map, Jerusalem. You will be able to travel to this river, dangle your feet in it and swim there.  Fruit trees will drink from the river. You may walk the shore munching their delectable produce!

“The river of life” is used in another sense, as an inner spiritual river – the Holy Spirit given those embracing Yeshua. This spiritual river transports us into joy and purpose and glory! You will realize dynamic transformation and empowerment through its gentle stillness, and mighty surging!

It is not enough to enjoy this river alone. Many live in Death Valley, shriveled by dehydration. Our lives cannot be complete until we learn how to be conduits and imparters of the river’s dynamism. There is satisfaction for ourselves, and blessing for others, as we communicate this river.

Wherever this river flows things will live! Its resurrection life is welcome news to millions! We are everlastingly grateful to The River Master. This book is ultimately about knowing and walking with Him by the riverfront. He is the guide for both the outer, tangible river and the inner, spiritual river. As you read on and comprehend this river you may find it a complement when someone says, “You’re all wet!”

The one thing this book lacks is the dynamic interaction possible in the Riverfront Property Seminar. Learning about the two rivers of life and how to navigate those streams comes much easier when in good company. If you can’t make a conference I suggest you read Riverfront Property with a group of friends who know, or long to know, the liquid realities of, “Christ in you.”

For those who must read the last chapter first to find the conclusion let’s save some page flipping. When they ask, “What was the book about? What did you learn?” you may answer, “Follow the Lamb and He will lead you to the Waters of Life.”

 

 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;

He will lead them to springs of living water.

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Rev 7:17)

      GREAT REVIEWS!

“Steve Johnson is one of the most remarkable people I have ever met.  From the first time I met him I was drawn to the River of God so evident in him.  I am not surprised that his book is remarkable as well.  Steve writes from his own personal experience with the River Master and from the overflow of God presence flowing through him.  After reading the book and experiencing the seminar I am even more hungry for the ever-increasing flow of God’s presence in my life and in the city where I pastor.”  –  Chuck Farina. Pastor of New Hope Church Abilene, Texas

“It’s the best thing I can remember seeing of its kind, which is a combination of thematic Bible study and Christian energy drink. Steve’s explanation of what the Bible says about rivers, water, and spiritual life is as good as it gets.”  –  Dr. Jeff Treder

“Riverfront Property makes me thirsty. The love of God and the river of life flow in these pages. Get a fresh drink here! Now I want to run through a rain shower, stand under a waterfall, and soak in the ocean. Come Holy Spirit, pour out on us!”   – Harold R. Eberle, President of Worldcast Ministry

A Train! A Train! A Train!

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

LISTEN HERE 

The lights flashed, the big polls would fold down and the bells would ding! A train was coming! We would jump up and down on the back seat (before seatbelts) shouting, “A train, a train, a train!” Count the cars. Look at the shapes, and letters on the side. What’s inside those cars? Where is it going? We were full of awe and wonder! What happened to that magical delight?

Adulthood sucks out of us the capacity for astonishment. The downgrade attitudes of “Been there, done that, seen that,” demonically pillage us of the capacity for amazement. The evil spirits whisper, “The train is boring.” Demons may even shout, “This train is an offense to the god of hurry!”

“The thief comes to kill, steal and destroy” the entrancement we find in steam coming off the soup, water ripples in the bathtub and curtains wrinkling in the breeze.

Wonder is the springboard into worship. We live in stark poverty without it. Who will save us and restore the wonder? The answer comes from Isaiah 11:6: “… a little child will lead them.”

Only a child can rescue us! Jesus, of course, was never plundered of His wonderment. Even as an adult He was able to be fascinated by the birds and flowering grass. He warned adults we would be hopelessly lost without child-likeness.

The prescription is to find a child to teach us the amazing world of flashlights in dark bedrooms, the enchanting fragrances of spices in the cupboard and the way a spider weaves a web. These are things every adult should learn! With remedial help from qualified children we can recover wonderment.

Look! A train, a train, a train!

COME YE THANKFUL PEOPLE, COME

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

“Please” and “Thank you” are powerful words, too often under-appreciated and underused. These words shape nations and steer the course of history. A happier, healthier world may be enjoyed when we use those two words with sincere hearts.

The account of that first thanksgiving is staggering! Remember, a year after their arrival in the new world half of the pilgrims were dead from malnutrition, cold and sickness. Instead of calling for a shake-your-fist-at-God protest rally they called for thanksgiving!

Do you see what faith and character are required to give thanks? Picture yourself with half of your family gone or having buried half of your community. Those people were true God fearers, focusing not on their entitlements but on the merciful God.

To give thanks when all is well is something we teach our children. To give thanks when all is less than well is something only the mature can stomach. The Bible teaches us to give thanks even in persecution, in hardship and trial. When I see people actually doing this I am stupefied with admiration.

Sadly most holidays have been neutered of their potency. We set off fireworks but forget the meaning of independence. We share presents but forget the Advent. We barbecue and play a round of golf, but don’t remember those who have fallen. In the case of Thanksgiving we eat to gluttony but forget, those two powerful words.

Lord, help us recover lost and stolen meaning and be people of gratitude!

Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day all offenses purge away,
Giving angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast;
But the fruitful ears to store in His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come, bring Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified, in Thy garner to abide;
Come, with all Thine angels come, raise the glorious harvest home.

BATHROBES

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Photo may be subject to copyright

 T or F:     The disciples walked about in bathrobes because they were too lazy to change into street cloths.
 
T or F:     John the Baptist was a wild, crass hillbilly of a man.
 
T or F:     Many people in America wear paints with holes across the knees because they are of the poorer class and must work on their hands and knees for a living.
  
JOHN’S STATUS
 
John was born with a silver spoon. 
You remember his father Zechariah was a priest who served in the magnificent temple.
John was born into the priestly line. That speaks volumes!
The priest were the social standard makers, religious litmus test takers, and the civil/legal judges of the day.
John was born into an elite class with the highest social rank.
He was better educated than 95 percent of the nation.
In terms of religious recognition John was born at the crest of the hill.
Economically he was probably in the upper class, for priests had financial benefits others did not.
 
The truth is that John had it all – status, education, and most likely wealth.
 
JOHN’S REPUDIATION
 
Like his father, John’s birthright was to serve at the temple.
There was one problem. John came to despise the corruption in the “organized religion” of the day.
He saw most of the priests and religious leaders as slime balls, hypocrites, widow robbers, and false teachers leading a nation away from God into dead ritual.
John repudiated the abuses of the priestly class and abandoned the option of being among the elites.  
He walked away from the magnificence of the temple service, the intelligentsia with their heady theological conversations, social commentary, the arrogance, hypocrisy and duplicity.
He would not tolerate the degradation he saw there.
John was so disgusted he turned his back on it all.
He traded in the priestly garments and dressed in leathers.
He no longer ate from the temple cafeteria but scavenged for food in the wilderness.
 
Israel had found God in the wilderness. God could be found there again!
 
JOHN’S SPIRITUALITY
 
John’s father was not just a priest. He stood out as a godly priest who had met the angel Gabriel in the temple.
John had been raised with that story – that impartation!
If ever a child had a sense of destiny and calling!
 
Johns young spirit had been seeded with, “And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High…“
 
JOHN’S MESSAGE
 
John was not as harsh as he was convicted, convicted to the reality the nation was lost and in desperate straits.
It needed a radical turn-around.
 
John’s strident message came from revelation of a great alarm, and the alarm needed to be sounded!
He warned of a fire torching and an axe hacking.
He did not want his people to experience those things – because he had the heart of a priest!
He would rally the people back to God, and to the mercies received in repentance.
 
There was something else – a message of Messianic Weight!
It was not just, “Repent or you will be burned and hacked” but, “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand!”
 
Something monumental was about to take place.
God was about to act. He would not be distant but present!
All should be aware, because when the King takes decisive action heads will roll.
And comfort will come for the oppressed!
That stirred the nation and hundreds of thousands of people made the trek to the wilderness for they saw that John had the heart of a priest, but the voice of a prophet!
In those multitudes there was the fear of God, and anticipation of an amazing disruptive future!
 
John radically changed his associations, his cloths, his diet, his mailing address, and of course, his message!
 
Things change when men and women are gripped with the kingdom!

The Virtues of Conservation and Liberality

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

 

The words “conservative” and “liberal” represent two wonderful virtues.

We see the wisdom of the conservative in Proverbs 21:20; “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil”.

We see the blessings of liberality in Proverbs 11:2; “A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”

The conservationist wants to save and preserve things. That’s definitely a virtue, assuming we are trying to preserve the right things. A liberal is a generous soul who is always sharing with others. That is a fine virtue as well, assuming that we are sharing things of value.

The problem is when either the conservationist or the generous are corrupted. It is nasty when the “conservative” steals to themselves constitutional authority meant to be shared. It is ugly when the “liberal” steals resources to solicit favors.

I see the beavers as blending the best of conservation and liberality. Beaver dams create rich ecosystems. The waters are both saved up as well as passed on. The beavers must have gotten their cue from the Creator who in Christ abundantly saves and generously gives.

We pray for genuine conservatives and liberals to appreciate one another and work meaningfully together! All we ask is that the water not be polluted by self-serving pretenders.

Looking and Crossing the Street

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I’VE DECIDED NOT TO TEACH MY CHILDREN TO LOOK FOR CARS WHEN CROSSING THE STREET.

When they grow up they can decide for themselves whether looking for cars is the right thing for them.

Children should be released to grow naturally, to experiment with life and make their own decisions.

Creating alarm about cars killing people is gruesome and distressing.

It may lead to a sense of paranoia about cars.

We want our children to grow up unafraid of cars and realize they are wonderful transportation devices and distinguishing status symbols.

When they grow up they can make decisions on their own regarding what they believe about looking before crossing the street.

After all, we decide not to tell our children about God for the same reasons.
