Catch The Wave!
God gave Ezekiel a prophetic peek into one of the most amazing things of scripture; He allowed him to see the “River of God” that flows from His Temple. We all know from studying the Word of God that when God references water He is speaking of the Holy Spirit. We know also that when He references the “Temple” that He is talking about the PLACE of His Presence.
In the Old Testament, the Temple represented a certain place they could go to find God intimately. As we move into the New Testament world after the death and resurrection of Jesus, we understand through Paul that we are now the Temple of God. In other words, we are now the place where the river of God can flow; we are the place of His Intimate Presence.
In this particular prophetic look at scripture, God is allowing Ezekiel to envision a day when the river of God (Spirit) will flow from the Temple of God (Us) in magnitude like the world has never seen before. What is He saying? In short, He is speaking of a future day when we (the current temple of the Holy Spirit) will walk in a level of His presence like we once didn’t know was possible. When this prophetic peak was given to Ezekiel, the day of the river flowing seemed like an impossible pipe dream. As we live in our current state, I actually see this day being now. In my humble opinion, the day prophesied in Ezekiel is here. I see an opportunity for us like no other generation has ever enjoyed.
I sense a season where the river is rising. I also sense that we are the people He wants to pour that river through. The very thought of this excites me to the core of my being. This river will flow like no river ever has and I think it’s time for us to “Catch the Wave!”
