water from the temple

Ezekiel 47:1-2 (JDV)

Ezekiel 47:1 Then he brought me back to the entrance of the house and I noticed water flowing from under the threshold of the house toward the east, for the house faced east. The water was coming down from under the south side of the threshold of the house, south of the altar.
Ezekiel 47:2 Next he brought me out by way of the north gate and led me around the outside to the outer gate that faced east; I noticed the water was trickling from the south side.

water from the temple

Water trickles out of the temple, but as it flows, it gets deeper. That water brings life and health to all it touches, salts the earth, and produces much fish, and abundant fruit. Every image of this vision is used by New Testament authors to describe the destiny that awaits the righteous. The fact that the water comes from the temple implies that all of these new earth realities flow from the presence of God. The sea represents the nations, the target of the flow. Jesus said that water will flow from the heart of believers (John 7:38). Life, abundance, and healing begin today. Its full realization will be at the coming of Christ.

LORD, may your life, love, and healing flow through us, to the nations.
