Concerning God's Waves"
June 26, 2006
On June 26, 2006, I was sitting on a secluded beach on the island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands, and
seeking the Lord.I was pondering the
crashing of the waves on the shore and thinking of how they demonstrate, in a
very small way, His great power (Psalm 93:4), when He spoke the following to
"Don't look for waves
to crash to show My power.Remember, I
am greater and more mighty than the crashing waves.The most effective waves will land silently
and will be completely absorbed."
Since I am a geologist, this was
intriguing to me.It is not normal for
waves to be totally absorbed by the shore.In the natural world, the waves crash on the shore and then return to
the sea.From Geology I know that all rocks
or even loose material, such as sand, have a characteristic called porosity
which is the pore space between the grains that make up the rock.Rocks can therefore "absorb" or
contain liquids to a certain degree.If
you fill up a glass with sand, even though the glass appears full you can still
add water to it.All other factors being
equal, the greater the porosity, the more liquid a given rock can hold.
As I considered spiritually what
Jesus had spoken to me, I realized that we need to be a people with a great
capacity to contain the flowing waves of God as they wash over us.Otherwise, they will pass us by, returning to
the sea without accomplishing their purpose.We could be immersed momentarily, but with no lasting result.I believe this is how in a single location
(such as a church service) some can be overcome with the Spirit while others
experience virtually nothing of God.It's a play on words in English, but I believe that as we become more
"hole-ly", as we literally make more space for God in our lives, then
He will likewise fill that space with more of Himself.
Then the Lord gave me more of the spiritual
application:"The waves build on each other.They roll along sometimes imperceptibly.But as they near the shore, they begin to roll over the previous wave
that is now retreating and it creates a crash.My waves [in the church and the Kingdom] are orderly as they cross My ocean.But chaos comes as they run into the previous wave.If the ground would receive them in full,
there would be no interference with the following wave.
So it is with the movements in My church.You must encourage my body to fully absorb
each move or wave of My Spirit when it comes.Only then will the next wave be able to arrive with minimal chaos and
While full absorption is not
possible in the physical realm, in the spiritual realm it is.One method would be as I described above
where the porosity increases to such an extent as to be able to contain the
entire volume of the wave.Another would
be through a sea level rise as described by Hope Reeder (Elijahlist word #5152,
April 4, 2007).
"My waves are surely coming.They are timed perfectly since the foundation of the world.Each arrives in sequence as I have
planned.Likewise, all who are living on
My shore will receive each wave.However, just as in the physical world where a single wave affects
different locations along the coastline at different times, so it is in the
Spirit.Some will receive the waves
sooner than others.The waves may seem a
surprise to the first who receive them.These places [people and churches] must learn to walk by faith as they do not know what is coming.Those that receive the waves later have the
advantage of seeing the wave's characteristics before it arrives at their
location.However, often these reject
the wave as not of My Spirit.They too
must learn to walk by faith in Me and not by sight.
Some in my Body need to stay in one place and help those around them
receive each wave.Others need to run
ahead of a particular wave to help prepare many to receive it.But you must run in My timing: too
slow and the warning is useless and a waste of your time; too fast and people
will be discouraged when the wave does not arrive in their timeframe."
So, I say:"Be encouraged Body of Christ!"The next wave is coming to you, no matter
where you are!Learn all you can from
your last wave; receive it fully.Then
you will be prepared to receive the next one, and the next one, and the next
I have included the following
summary of verses about waves and the sea for further meditation:
1.It is the Lord who made the sea.
95:3-5"For the LORD is a great God, and a great King
above all gods.In his hand are the
depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands
formed the dry land."
20:11"For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in
them, and rested the seventh day..."
2.Of course, since He created the sea, then He
is greater than the sea!
93:4"Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the
sea, the LORD on high is mighty!"
14:23-25"And after he[Jesus] had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by
himself to pray.When evening came, he
was there alone, but the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten
by the waves, for the wind was against them.And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the
3.God's ocean and His waves are orderly.It is the wicked nations, or the enemies of
God that are described as chaotic waves or floods.
93:3"The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their roaring."
65:5-8a"By awesome deeds you answer us
with righteousness, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the
earth and of the farthest seas;the one
who by his strength established the mountains, being girded with might;who stills the roaring of the seas, the
roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples,so that those who dwell at the ends of the
earth are in awe at your signs."
4.God may stir up the waves in judgment to
serve His purposes.
31:35 "Thus says the LORD, who gives the sun for
light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,
who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar- the LORD of hosts is his name:"
51:42"The sea has come up on Babylon;
she is covered with its tumultuous waves."
5.Or He may calm the waves if they are not from
89:8-9"O LORD God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O LORD, with your
faithfulness all around you?You rule
the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them."
4:39"And he[Jesus] awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Peace!
Be still!"And the wind ceased, and
there was a great calm."
6.Our relationship to God's waves:we should allow all that God has for us to
"go over" or cover us and be willing to absorb the things He brings:
42:7"Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and
your waves have gone over me."
we don't do this, we will be immature, unstable and tossed around:
4:11-14"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and
teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the
body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the
knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature
of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and
fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning,
by craftiness in deceitful schemes."
we can trust God to bring us through any storm and into His rest.
107:29-30"He made the storm be still, and the waves of
the sea were hushed.Then they were glad
that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven."
