Water From the Sanctuary in the Temple

Read the Bible in a year by reading Ezekiel 47 and 48 today.
God had been showing Ezekiel the temple and the sanctuary in the temple. In chapter 47, the prophet saw water flowing from the temple. The waters grew deeper and deeper, becoming a river. Then a man told Ezekiel this,
“Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine” (Ezekiel 47:12).
Water from the sanctuary from within God’s temple brought a very productive river. Trees getting water from the river did not wither and the fruit was constant, bearing the fruit quickly every month.
In John 4, Jesus told a woman that if she drank of the water that He gives, she would never thirst again, but the water would become a fountain providing everlasting life. Jesus spoke later (John 7), that if we are thirsty we can go to Him and He will give us drink. If we believe in Him, out of our hearts will flow rivers of living water. In Revelation 22, there is a scene similar to what Ezekiel experienced. John saw a river of water of life proceeding from the throne of God.
The water that comes from God is good, very good, very very good. Do you want to drink of it? Jesus said to believe in Him and see what happens.
