One of the books of the Old Testament that I have not spent much time reading is the book of Ezekiel. This past Sunday’s message (click here to listen) was taken from Ezekiel 47:1-12.

  • Water is a powerful symbol of the Blessings of God.
  • In verses 3-5, the writer uses different water levels to symbolize our different levels of trust in God: ankle deep (mostly self showing), knee deep (prayer, but little else), waist deep (feeling the current now, but stll standing on our own two feet), and finally, too deep to stand (total trust in God to take us where He wants us to go).
  • The symbol of the trees: the closer our proximity to the River the more we grow and the more fruit we bear. There is nothing but wilderness and desert away from the River.

Thank you Pastor Tim for another great message!
