The Old Testament Unveiled: The River of Life

It’s a strange place for a river to begin. Not at the convergence of several streams, not at a natural spring, but under a building. Ezekiel sees a trickle of water coming from underneath the temple. As he follows the stream, it deepens and broadens into a river. The most amazing thing? Everything the water touches, lives. It even desalinates the waters of the Dead Sea.

This is the river of life–the same river that flowed out of Eden to water the garden, then split into four rivers to carry the blessings of Paradise to the rest of creation. It’s the same river that John sees in the New Jerusalem, which flows from the throne of God and of the Lamb. And it’s the same river that carries the blessings of Jesus Christ to you.

In my latest YouTube video, I talk about the significance of this river. Click on this link to watch the video: “The Old Testament Unveiled: The River of Life That Flows from Eden to Ezekiel to Jerusalem.” Thanks for taking the time to watch!

What we need in our fragmented world, full of hurting people, is the love of Jesus Christ, who welcomes home sinners with a grace that knows no bounds. My book Christ Alone: Meditations and Sermons, is packed with reflections that go that extra mile of grace. Again and again, they present the Christ who is crucified and risen for you. Please take a moment to check it out here. You may also be interested in my collections of hymns and poetry entitled, The Infant Priest, which you can purchase here. Both books are also available on Amazon, as is my booklet Why Lutherans Sing What They Sing (also on Kindle). Thank you for your prayers and support!
