7 As I went back, I saw on the bank of the river very many trees on the one side and on the other. 8 And he said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah, and enters the sea; when the water flows into the sea, the water will become fresh. 9 And wherever the river goes, every living creature that swarms will live, and there will be very many fish. For this water goes there, that the waters of the sea may become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes.
This is one of my favorite prophecies of Jesus. From the new temple will flow rivers of life giving water to refresh a dying land.
Jesus is the new temple and His sacrifice allowed God’s spirit to flow freely from himself and from all His followers into a world in need of life.
