Swarms of living creatures will live wherever the river flows. There will be large numbers of fish, because this water flows there and makes the salt water fresh; so where the river flows everything will live. Fishermen will stand along the shore; from En Gedi to En Eglaim there will be places for spreading nets. The fish will be of many kinds —like the fish of the Mediterranean Sea. But the swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt. Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing. ”
Joshua band has a song call The River, after reading Ezekiel 47 then i understand the full meaning of the song. During QT last night, I read the chapter and felt amazed! It was such a great illustration for us, for the church! God is the source of living river! If we let the river source be open and flow through, the power of the river will be amazing! Fishes will be attracted- people will just come to the source, becuase it is the source that will make them live! Really alive! This river source will make us so strong that 'the tree will grow and the leaves will heal', when we let the river flow in our life and church, we will start to bear fruits and heal people! For me it has given me a much in depth understanding of what Tommy Tenny( author of GodChaser) has been trying to say in the whole book! Of course God is the best author! He has written such a great illustration for us and by the Holy Spirit gave me another dimension of understanding! We must let the river flow! When it flow, there will be real life and fruits!
on a sidenot, I have been really into taking and editing my photos to include verses! It's so great and convenient! All within my little phone! Isn't it at least good to see some God's words in people's instagram and twitter feed? Amen!
