Ezekiel 47:1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house [stood toward] the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south [side] of the altar.
Ezekiel 47:5 Afterward he measured a thousand; [and it was] a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.

Notice, how the waters flowing from the east, from the House into a river.

Ezekiel 47:9 And it shall come to pass, [that] every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
Ezekiel 47:10 And it shall come to pass, [that] the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a [place] to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.

Ezekel 47:9 The river brought forth living things. Verse 10 Says, the fish will be according to their kind. As in the beginning of creation (Genesis). This is most definitely the New Earth our Lord is restoring.

Here is the big one?..

Ezekiel 47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

Lets add it up? House, River, fish after its kind healed by this Water and River, on this side and that side all trees grow for meat, leaf shall not fade and for medicine, shall bring forth fruit according to his months, waters issuing out of the Sanctuary or House

Total: In my Fathers house are many mansions. Now, read Psalms 1, revelations 22:1-3 I have more but its late.

God Bless you until next time

Ann says...
Re: The east gate...Jesus would only enter in through the eastern gate of the tempel. Ezekiel in his vision of the new tempel (and its not a heavenly tempel(???) the gate is sealed. The western wall and the eastern gate is all that remains today of Herods tempel. The great earthquake to come just prior to his return will split east to west. ...the kings of the east at his birth, and the kings of the east at the end times who he says will help to usher in his distruction.. I wonder if there is any signifigent meaning to the patterns on the tempel gates, those circle patterns, just a thought.


If you can give me some scriptures to your explanation above, it will help me give a clearer answer. So, i'll wait until then to answer. Thank you God Bless

Thank You Ann, God Bless you,
A good place to start for the basics is http://www.evanwiggs.com/articles/mazz.html I really never looked to the internet for this teaching since my chruch was preaching on this since 1981.
The Eyptians knew of the Mazzaroth (constellations). Except, they saw it as Astrology (the Zodiac) and used it as a Horoscope. Anything the Ancient Epytians built and teach according to their understanding of the Mazzaroth is meaningless. The Greeks were close to the Story of the Mazzaroth, but again saw it through Mythical Gods as Zeus and Hercules. It is amazing that as long as Preachers have been reading on the Mazzaroth that we would ignore it because of how the Egyptians, Greeks and Babylonians viewed it. So it has been taboo for years. Israel even knew about the Mazzaroth, which we know it today, as the Hebrew Astronomy, not Astrology.
Yes, God uses numbers, shapes, colors to explain the Spiritual as well as the Natural. Everything he formed and shaped, by numbers, and adding color. My Minister used tough love on us?lol?She would tell us, ?Don?t wait to come to church to hear the word, go home and know God for yourself. Nobody gets revelation on a bed of Roses. It takes studying.? Two scriptures she would give:
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
When she knew we were not reading and waiting for answers, she would give us enough to get our inquistive minds working, she would say, ?Let the Lord show you.? You can hear everybody say, ?Ahh, Man!? And not Amen?lol
I seek the Lord early in the morning and read, pray and praise about an hour. Then, meditate throughout the day what I read. Sometimes revelations come and then there is that long period of waiting on the Lord before he reveals new things to me.
It?s not because your looking at it wrong. Remember this, if all you know is one scripture to lift you through hard times, you have a powerful word. The bible says this:
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine,
Every generation God saves a remnent of the Jews and will continue in every genertaion to come, after we are long gone. But, that can also be said about the people in the rest of the world. Remember now, the bible talks of an Earth to pass away and a new Earth to come. Which, Earth is his footstool? I enjoy giving people things to seek, and meditate on sometimes before I give an answer. Plus, lets people open their eyes to things they probably read a 1000 times and missed it.
God Bless

Another question. If there is no millinnium kingdom or twelve tribes why does God divide the land amongest the 12 as he does in Ezekiel 47 and 48. to build a tempel, eat, farm, fish, live die etc. It can only be earthly. Tell m how these are spiritual. I'm a hard sell of the stubborn kind but I love the input and knowledge. If I'm wrong I want to be corrected! Keep it comn' please.

Thanks 1MAZZAROTH. That is a wonderful explination to say the least. I never looked into it but Ive heard chatter about the Mazzaroth. Where would I find good reading on this subject? Do you believe the sphinx and pyramids are a time line or planatery aligment map in the constolation of Leo(sphinx) and what role does mars or is it Murcury have to do with the end times? God seems to work very mathamatical and detailed like a celtec knot. I believe the stars(heavens) have a big role in understanding and ancient man new this. I feel something there and I cant put my finger on it. I think Id enjoy knowing more about the Mazzaroth. And to your explination of the numbering is that why heaven is in the shape of a cube? and yes its good to meditate on the word if you read Psalms or Proverbs but it can be a bit frustrating when you dont get Revelation. It must be because I'm looking at it wrong or its unlike Ezk that it is a spiritual vision? I have tried painstakingly to piece it together but to no avail. I feel God after his judgments on Isreal will give them once and for all what he intended for his earthly nation but its NOT the final end nor is it heaven but heavens gate will be open., Like I mentioned I think his footstool earth will be restored for a short time but I'm still open to suggestion. Thansk for commenting. Peace.

The reason Revelations 7 talks of 12000 of each tribe being sealed because it equals to 1 whole, Israel or Kingdom of God. The math goes like this:

12000 Sealed
X 12 tribes
144,000 = 1Whole = 1 Israel = 1 Kingdom of God of Peace Joy Righteousness in the Holy Ghost that is now within us. We have been made whole, complete and well balanced which is Libra in the constellations. I told you I have been studying the Mazzaroth for over 30 years now. I don?t worship the stars but they do tell a story of the coming of Christ and not astrology. I don?t worship the bible but it does tell a story and leads to much revelations about all of Gods creation. Man has corrupted Gods creation and the bible. Gee, why do people keep thinking that only 12000 of each tribe of natural Israel will be saved?

Also, Israel is Rev. 7 means the Son of God. Individually I am a son of God, born again of the incorruptible seed of God, of his word and Spirit. Let me show you a hidden revelations in the OT. Look at what the Lord says to Pharaoh.

Exodus 4:22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel [is] my son, [even] my firstborn:

Don?t think Carnal, see it in the spirit. Israel (144000) as a whole Gods kingdom is his Son, his first born among many brethren.

Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

Revelations 7:9 says, ?a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations.? So much for the theory of only 144000 and being just the jews only

Notice Revelations 7:2 of an Angel coming from the East, having the seal of the living God. Son of Man is to come from the East. Just thought I would throw that out there to think about?lol?Its good to meditate on the word anyways :)

Got to go to work, have a good morning,

God Bless

Thanks for responding. I sway back and forth about a few things but I guess I would say I'm a futurist. Daniel and Ezekiel are OT yet they have revelation of the future. I believe Ezk 36:1-38 tells of the mellinium kingdom or the 1000 yr reign. I dont think Jesus will be there physically ( his kingdom is not of this world) but it will be Gods Holy City. but these verses that so many say is the 1948 rebirth of Isreal Nation "The valley of dry bones" I dont think it's that at all, 34:28 No more will other nations conquer them or wild animals, they shall live in safety.. There is no place for Islam or the dome of the rock in ths kingdom.. I would encourage anyone to read Ezekiel 36 and open your eyes to a restored nation, just as it discribes, here on earth. Its not untill it says the distant future after this kingdom (we'll say 1000 years) that the Great Throne Judgement happens, after the battel of Gog and Magog also called The Second Death. The 144000 was called the First Ressurection. I believe that the 1st is for the believers starting with Christ through the Tribulation. Only the elect will be on earth of the 12 tribes he redeemed. I have sticking points in a few spots on the spirital part of the redeemed and the 12 tribes but I do believe this will be on earth. Every other believer will be in heaven. Its during the second death that all the multitude will be judged. Rev.20:13. The earth is his footstool. He will replace it with a better lasting one when this one gets all busted up.

Peace and awsome blessings

Hello again! Let me ask you. Do you take a futurist view of the book of revelation or do you believe that revelation has already happened. I see the multitude of all nationalities and tongues that no man can number as the grafting in of the gentiles. This multitude appears symbolically or spiritually before the throne. A revelation of Jesus Christ. Thank you for the posts. Differences of opinion is why I started this blog so please continue to post. GB

They are those coming out of the tribulation to join those already waiting them who have died for the preaching of Christ.,7:14 also seen in the same vision were the 144,000 who were marked just before the Lord returns 7:4-8
