from foul to fresh

Ezekiel 47:6b-12 (JDV)

Then he led me back to the bank of the river.
Ezekiel 47:7 When I had returned, I noticed a very large number of trees along both sides of the riverbank.
Ezekiel 47:8 He said to me, “This water flows out to the eastern region and goes down to the Arabah. When it enters the sea, the sea of foul water, the water of the sea becomes fresh.
Ezekiel 47:9 Every kind of living throat that swarms will live wherever the river flows, and there will be a huge number of fish because this water goes there. Since the water will become fresh, there will be life everywhere the river goes.
Ezekiel 47:10 Fishermen will stand beside it from En-gedi to En-eglaim. These will become places where nets are spread out to dry. Their fish will consist of many different kinds, like the fish of the Mediterranean Sea.
Ezekiel 47:11 Yet its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be left for salt.
Ezekiel 47:12 All kinds of trees providing food will grow along both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. Each month they will bear fresh fruit because the water comes from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be used for food and their leaves for medicine.”

from foul to fresh

The river brings life from the dead — even the Dead Sea will become fresh, and fish of many different kinds will be found there.

What kind of impact are you making on the world around you. Do the foul waters become fresh that you flow by? Our Master wants us to make an influence wherever we go.
