This is one of those ‘suddenly’ Visions The LORD gives me from time to time. This came unexpectedly late in the day.
I saw a trickle of water, a small stream really, running down a mountainside. I don’t know where it was other than that I assumed it was somewhere in The United Kingdom, by which I mean somewhere in England, Ireland, Scotland, or Wales — somewhere in the U.K.
I started to follow the stream, upstream, towards the source. I went gently uphill for a way, the stream getting smaller and smaller all the way, until I reached a rock formation where the stream is pouring gently out between the rocks. The source is a natural spring — very small and seemingly insignificant.
Retracing my steps, I follow downstream. Of course the stream gets bigger and bigger, wider and wider, until it is obviously a small river tumbling joyfully over rocks and stones, and getting deeper — ankle deep — knee deep — waist deep — swimming deep!
The analogy of Ezekiel 47 wasn’t lost on me!
“What are you showing me LORD?” I asked.
“Go back to the source, I have something to show you!” was His reply!
Back upstream I went. Amazingly, I found myself in company on this trip. I was walking along with two or three others.
Where they came from, I’ve no idea, they were just walking with me! We came at last back to the rock formation that housed the natural spring which sourced the stream.
Now a large powerful angel stood there on guard. He greeted our small group with a small goblet for each of us, which he first filled with water from the spring. He invited us to drink, which again, we did.
The effect was instant, and amazing. Immediately, I felt totally refreshed. Clear headed, full of energy, and totally at peace with God.
“That….“ the angel said as he watched me react, “That is The Water of Life!”
“But where is The Temple from which The River of Life flowed in Ezekiel 47?”
“YOU are that Temple!” the angel replied.
He then showed me,
“On the last day, that great day of The Feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow Rivers of Living Water.”” John 7:37-38.
Then He said, 1 Corinthians 3:16, “Do you not know that you are The Temple of God — and that The Spirit of God dwells in you?”
Then he also showed me,
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
Finally he showed me Jesus’ Own Words,
“On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37-38.
It was just a vision of revelation that I felt led to share with you all. I never did find out who was with me when The Angel gave us the water to drink!
