Today you should read: Ezekiel 47
Ezekiel 47 is a cool picture to imagine. A river starts in the Temple and as it flows into the world, it continuously gets deeper and deeper. Not only is the river big, but life around and in the river is abundant. Trees align the river, animals are all around, and there is a great number of fish. All of this shows that the river gives life. And the amazing picture of life that we can envision, all starts with where the river begins to flow (the Temple of God).
There is a comparison in the New Testament with Ezekiel 47. The comparison: The river that flows through the center of Heaven that John describes in Revelation 22. Take a second and read Revelation 22:1-5. The similarities are amazing.
Ezekiel 47 is pointing to a day when God’s blessing will be seen and realized. The abundance of life will flow from God Himself, as described in this passage and in Revelation 22.
As followers of Jesus, we can be assured that we will get to experience the river of life. It is going to be a part of eternity, and we will get to enjoy that!
Take time today and thank God for eternal security and the beauty of what is to come.
