Wade out a little bit deeper

While the sentiment of the old gospel song may be uplifting, is that the idea that Ezekiel was to receive from his vision of the river? Again we must ask ourselves what big lessons we should learn from this chapter.

Ezekiel 47

  • The river that heals the land begins in the house of God, flows to a depth beyond the understanding of man, and is lined with trees (v. 1-12).
  • The land of God, measured and marked, is shared equally by Jews and Gentiles of the true faith (v. 13-23). (Note that in Christ there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile.)
