They Drank From the River and Died in the Wilderness

They Drank From the River and Died in the Wilderness

David Ravenhill

$21.99

Paperback
140 pages

- Publisher We are living in a land not our own. We are looking for a city, whose Builder and Maker is God. Along the way, there will be rivers from which to drink. These "rivers" will renew, refresh, and restore vision and purpose. But the "river" will not ultimately satisfy the inner longing of your soul. The "river" along the way must not be mistaken for the City of God we all seek. We must go on, not being content with the provision of the "river," no matter how exciting its rushing power and glory may be.

- Publisher One of my great concerns with regard to this present outpouring is the increasing tendency to build upon "sand" rather than upon the rock of God's Word. How readily we grasp at loose grains of truth rather than the whole rock! As a teacher, I am concerned that we are producing a generation of believers hooked on experiences rather than exposition. We get more excited over some feelings than we do over God's Word. People flock to see some demonstration of God's power, but they run from any desire to know the person of God Himself. We now give more emphasis to praise than we do to prayer, and possessions have replaced passion and purity. Success is no longer measured by character, but by charisma. Gifting has replaced godliness. Put on a gospel concert, and you can fill most auditoriums. Call people to pray, and you can fit them into the smallest room of the church.
