The Weekly Word: “Rivers of Living Water”
Published Wednesday, April 6th, 2011 by Pastor Timothy Stahlman in Family Church of the Southern Tier
Rev. Timothy Stahlman, Contributing Writer

JAMESTOWN, NY — The Chautauqua Star is excited to welcome another contributing writer to our community section, Rev. Tim Stahlman of Family Church of the Southern Tier. You can find his column, ‘The Weekly Word,' in print every week, or here on StarNewsDaily.com.

This week, Family Church of the Southern Tier and Pastor Tim Stahlman announced the release of their first book titled “Rivers of Living Water.” The book is available at www.thenewfamilychurch.com and Amazon.com. Ministries and home groups can call the church at 487-1712 for discounted rates. The book will make a great study resource for individuals and Bible groups. Proceeds will be given to charity. The following in an excerpt from “Rivers of Living Water.”

“Many times God’s people are allowing the Holy Spirit to be recklessly diverted from their lives. People get so busy that they no longer go to church, read their Bible, and pray. They plant themselves in front of trashy media programs and movies that literally divert the anointing of God right out of their lives. This is why so many Christians are defeated in life, sick, tired, and broken down. They have recklessly allowed the world to divert the necessary resources of the Holy Spirit. This explains why much of the 21st century American Church has lost her zeal for the things of God. Their low water level has given them a spiritual fever. Unlike a natural fever, this spiritual fever runs cold.

Life becomes barren without the waters of the Holy Spirit. The circumstances of life bring us to the point of overheating when we run low on the power of God’s Spirit. Things that were once a joy now threaten to burn us out and wear us down to the point of exhaustion. People are putting forth great effort without replenishing themselves with the rain from Heaven. They are just one dry season away from a major crisis. No! It doesn’t need to be that way. The Living Rivers of God’s Holy Spirit have more than enough to see us through every dry place in life.

Unless we wake up to the fact that we are being distracted away from the supernatural life of God, we will dry up. Our schedules and hobbies can try to steal this precious resource. So many denominations today have all but erased the Holy Ghost from the teaching in their pulpits. As a pastor, I have noticed that many believers coming out of denominational backgrounds are not even aware of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. When they hear me teach on it from my pulpit they are shocked. It seems so strange to their ears that they believe that I am presenting some strange doctrine. Some denominations have tried to replace the Holy Spirit with social programs and by doing so they have doomed their own future. If we fail to stay replenished with the Holy Spirit, then we will be crippled in our ability to breathe life into this lost and dying world. The Holy Spirit is God’s provision for staying well watered. Listen: The truth of God’s Word on the Baptism of the Spirit is essential to every area of your life. This is not something that should be lightly esteemed.”
