Ezekiel 47:5-6 (AMPC): "Afterward he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the waters had risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over or through. And he said to me, Son of man, HAVE YOU SEEN THIS? Then he led me and caused me to return to the bank of the river."
A Night Vision of a Flood
I had a dream that I was inside of my house and I felt prompted by the Lord to look outside. As I walked out onto my porch, there was a flood that had risen from the earth and it was so deep that when I saw it I said, "WE ARE GOING TO NEED A BOAT!" I then asked the people inside, "HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?"
One of the things I noticed was that the water was a bit muddy. Then when the Lord began to speak to me about the dream He led me to Ezekiel 47, and what stood out to me were verses 5-10.What also struck me in the dream was that THE WATER WAS DEEP ENOUGH TO NEED A BOAT and that it was not INSIDE OF THE HOUSE.
When I asked the Lord about it, He brought out verses 7-10 in Ezekiel 47 (AMPC): "Now when I had returned, behold, on the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. Then he said to me, These waters pour out toward the eastern region and go down into the Arabah (the Jordan Valley) and on into the Dead Sea. And when they shall enter into the sea [the sea of putrid waters], the waters shall be healed and made fresh. And wherever the double river shall go, every living creature which swarms shall live. And there shall be a very great number of fish, because these waters go there that [the waters of the sea] may be healed and made fresh; and everything shall live wherever the river goes. The fishermen shall stand on [the banks of the Dead Sea]; from En-gedi even to En-eglaim shall be a place to spread nets; their fish shall be of very many kinds, as the fish of the Great or Mediterranean Sea."
You Are the Trees Planted by This Water
The Lord then said, "YOU ARE THE TREES ON THE BANKS OF THESE WATERS. Many have not sat in the seat of the scornful but have trusted in My Word, and have taken delight in Me and their roots have gone deep into the soil - they are the trees planted by this water!"
Then He said, "THIS RIVER IS RISING and SOON IT WILL FLOW INTO THE SEA OF HUMANITY THAT HAVE NOT YET KNOWN ME. It will come forth out from the midst of the TREES and flow into the sea and it will be a DOUBLE RIVER of My LOVE AND GRACE THAT SHALL POUR OUT INTO THAT DEAD SEA ,THEN THE WATER SHALL BE HEALED!
"Get ready because there will be a HARVEST OF FISH that will be from all nations and tongues! The place where the river shall go will be those places that MY FISHERS OF MEN will spread their nets again and this time the harvest will be great upon the earth!"
This Revival Begins Outside of My House!
"This revival will not be an inside revival but it will be one that begins outside of My house to compel those in the highways and byways to come in! Many things will begin to happen that will cause men's hearts to turn toward Me and I will be positioning My people who through shaking have been on the sidelines of this river AND ARE NOW FIRMLY PLANTED IN PLACE. As I have healed them, so shall the leaves of these trees of righteousness, heal the nations!
"Yes, they shall carry the living river to the sick, the lame, the mentally oppressed, and bring deliverance to those captives who are bound by drug addictions, sexual addictions, and all that the enemy has held them captive with! For I will cause in this day a hunger for Me in those that are bound - for the living water that flows from My throne and that flows out of the bellies of My people!
"Yes, get ready for the flood of My presence! WHEN YOU SEE THE FLOOD WATERS RISE, KNOW THAT I AM ABOUT TO VISIT THAT REGION WITH MY GLORY AND PRESENCE AND THE OUTPOURING OF MY SPIRIT!
"Be positioned and ready for the fish! Yes, I have STRENGTHENED the nets and strengthened you to catch the biggest fish ever and I have said, 'GET A BIGGER BOAT!' Enlarge your thinking, for the harvest is about to be bigger and greater than you have even imagined!"
