Part 2 - The voice of the Lord thunders like the sound on many waters
Recorded Date 24 /2/22 -
THE RIVER WILL FLOW
In part one of this message I mentioned that there would be more to come.
This morning at around 8.30am the Lord impressed on me the second part of His message concerning the current situation.
The sound of the waters has continued to echo through this last week.
I felt this morning that I should again look into the message that Ezekiel brings. My intention was to begin to read the book from the beginning, but as I sat down I felt led to start from the end.
I opened up at Chapter 47 and guess what? The water continues to flow.
The passage begins:
47 Then he [my guide] brought me back to the door of the house [the temple of the Lord]; and behold, water was flowing from under the threshold of the house (temple) toward the East, for the front of the temple was facing east. And the water was flowing down from under, from the right side of the house, from south of the altar. 2 Then he brought me out by way of the North gate and led me around on the outside to the outer gate by the way of the gate that faces East. And behold, water was spurting out from the South side [of the gate].3 When the man went out toward the East with a measuring line in his hand, he measured a thousand cubits, and he led me through the water, water that was ankle-deep. 4 Again he measured a thousand [cubits] and led me through the water, water that was knee-deep. Again he measured a thousand [cubits] and led me through the water, water reaching the hips. 5 Again he measured a thousand [cubits]; and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the water had risen, enough water to swim in, a river that could not be crossed [by wading]. 6 And he said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he brought me back to the bank of the river. 7 Now when I had returned, behold, on the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. 8 Then he said to me, “These waters go out toward the eastern region and go down into the Arabah (the Jordan Valley); then they go toward the sea, being made to flow into the sea, and the waters of the Dead Sea shall be healed and become fresh. 9 It will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the river goes, will live. And there will be a very great number of fish, because these waters go there so that the waters of the sea are healed and become fresh; so everything will live wherever the river goes. 10 And it will come about that fishermen will stand beside it [at the banks of the Dead Sea]; from Engedi to Eneglaim there will be dry places to spread nets. Their fish will be of very many kinds, like the fish of the Great [Mediterranean] Sea. 11 But its swamps and marshes will not become fresh [and wholesome for animal life]; they will [as the river subsides] be left encrusted with salt. 12 By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They shall bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.

Initially we see that the level of the waters progress until it becomes as deep as a river, and that the crossing ca
