God's Water

All these scriptures go together. Their is a strong anointing while reading this page out loud.

God's water, word, spirit and the coming of Jesus are all connected. Let His word cleanse you, empower you, follow God's spirit in the foot steps of Jesus.

No one can follow and do the will of God unless you are cleansed by His word and filled with God's Holy Spirit. Be cleansed by, filled by, restored by and overflowing with the never ending flow of the water of life, the word of God that will come out like a river to restore all who will listen, believe and drink the living water that Jesus is giving freely. God's water represents so many things all at the same time!

I hope you all can understand this page and what it means. This type of study really has no end, God's word goes on & on about it and I can not exhaust these subjects as with all God's deep wisdom- it is alive and never ends!

So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.> 2 Peter 3:14

so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe> Philip 2:15

Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares?> Pro 5:16

Water Streaming Down From Lebanon

In my vision, the man brought me back to the entrance of the Temple: Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house [stood toward] the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south [side] of the altar. Ezek 47:1

For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."> Rev 7:1 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.> John 4:23

The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.> Rev 22:17



A key test for whether a person interprets the prophetic Word literally is the river that is described in Ezekiel 47 and in other places in the Old Testament. This amazing river will originate from the house of the LORD (compare Joel 3:18) as a very shallow stream. Gradually the stream will get deeper and fuller until it is over a man's head. It eventually travels east until it empties into the Dead Sea which will then be a terrible misnomer because the waters of the Dead Sea will be turned into fresh water teeming with fish (see Ezekiel 47:1-10). It will be the Living Sea!

In Zechariah 14:8 we learn that half of this river will empty into the Dead Sea and half of the river will empty into the Mediterranean Sea. This river is also mentioned in Psalm 46:4 (and notice the context in Psalm 46:9-10 which clearly speaks of the kingdom).

Manfred Kober has provided the following illustration of the future topography of the Holy Land showing this amazing river of life flowing into the two great seas:

The Commencement of the River: Zechariah 14:8; Ezekiel 47:1-2

In Zechariah's prophecy, the river is said to originate in Jerusalem and to divide, one branch flowing into the Dead Sea, the other into the Mediterranean. In Ezekiel 47 only the river flowing eastward is described, as an angelic guide takes Ezekiel on a prophetic excursion along the river.

At the eastern front of the temple Ezekiel sees a spring emerging (Ezek. 47:1-2). The waters begin at the immediate dwelling place of Christ who is the source of all spiritual and physical life. The miraculous waters “trickled forth” at first, and yet, without any tributaries, increased in depth and volume.

The Course of the River: Ezekiel 47:3-5

The angel led Ezekiel along the riverbank, measuring the waters. After 1,750 feet (1,000 cubits) the waters were ankle-deep. In another 1,750 feet the waters had become knee-deep, then waist-deep at another 1,750 feet, until at another 1,750 feet the river was so deep that one could swim in it. In the distance from Jerusalem to the eastern slopes of the Mount of Olives (about 1½ miles), the trickle became a spring, the spring a brook, the brook a stream, and the stream a raging river. To accent the dramatic size and depth of the river, Ezekiel refers to it in verse 9 as “rivers,” literally “a double river,” because of its raging current.

The Dead Sea which will be healed is today a symbol of death and destruction. The stench of sulphur hanging in the air reminds one of the judgment of Genesis 19. Presently the Dead Sea can hardly sustain microorganisms, apart from some freshwater springs along its northwestern shores. As proof for the genuine healing, the sea will bring forth “a very great multitude of fish” (Ezek. 47:9). Fishermen will find the Dead Sea an ideal place for their trade, with an abundance of fish like those found in the Mediterranean Sea. Fishermen will spread their nets from En-Gedi (“fountain of a kid”), located on the middle of the western shore, to En-Eglaim (“spring of the two calves”), perhaps located along the northwestern shore near Qumran.


The swamps and marshes near the southern end of the Dead Sea “will not be healed; they shall be given to salt” (Ezek. 47:11). Though Ezekiel does not explain why the salt flats will remain, several explanations can be offered. Salt, essential for the preparation of food, will also be required for some of the memorial sacrifices offered in the temple (Ezek. 43:24; cf. Lev. 2:13). Further, the Dead Sea is an important source of minerals for Israel and possibly will be in the future. The Lord may also want to demonstrate to the rest of the world for 1,000 years how stagnant and lifeless the entire Dead Sea had been before the river of living water healed it.

If the river were not literal, why would other passages of Scripture mention the river as well? Psalm 46:4 mentions a river which will make Jerusalem glad. Joel 3:18's millennial prediction envisions a fountain coming out of the temple and watering the valley of Shittim in which the Dead Sea is located. In fact, the millennial changes, predicted by Zechariah and Ezekiel are simply a microcosm of the healing of the curse that will take place all over the world.


Why should anyone stumble at the idea of a beautiful stream springing up at the geographical center of our Lord's blessed Kingdom on earth, with healing in both its waters and the fruit which grows beside it? Is there anything incredible here, if we remember that the coming King is the One who once turned water into wine and sent the sightless man to wash away his blindness in the waters of Siloam (John 9:11)? What a visible symbol this will be to remind the nations of the unfailing blessings which will flow from the throne of the Son of David! And from this shrine none will go away in heartbreaking disappointment because no help has been found.

Salvation made easy

So Jesus holds His hand out to YOU— Do you except His free gift? Do you choose believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead? AND can you say RIGHT Now "Jesus you are my Lord I accept you"? Ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit in Jesus name. Romans 10:9-10 God Has made it easy >

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

An interesting study. It's like looking at the scriptures through a microscope and discovering things we didn't know were there while just glancing at the surface.

Lots of deep revelation to meditate on and consider.

I loved how all the scripture does intertwine. I believe the connection to water is the cleansing, the anointing of believers.

This passage from John;

John 19:34-35 (New International Version, ©2010)

34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 35 The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.

I believe this sums the river up as being the growing number of followers.
