Do you see, O mortal?” he said to me; and he led me back to the bank of the stream. Ezekiel 47:6 (The Israel Bible™).

Breaking Israel News: A previously unknown river in the Israeli wilderness was revealed to the world on Sunday night.  Channel 11 Kan News, Israel’s public broadcasting channel, reported on a six-mile-long river that wound its way through deep desert canyons near the Dead Sea. The region is particularly arid and very little natural water exists there. The river is within the concession area of ​​the Dead Sea Works, an Israeli potash plant in Sodom on the coast of the Dead Sea within private land where casual hikers are restricted.

To make matters worse, the Kan broadcast warned the curious viewers that the area contains unmapped minefields.

The newly discovered river hosts a multitude of unique natural features, rare flora and fauna that exist in the desert environment. But the site is already in danger. The program on Kan News claimed that the work being done by the Dead Sea Works exceeds what is permitted by environmental laws and is based on flawed data. Future programs will investigate this claim.

Indeed, Biblical prophecy foretells of the appearance of a river similar to this “hidden river” flowing east from Jerusalem into the Dead Sea, filling it up with fish and the surrounding desert with life. Read More …

Opinion: As we draw near to the end of the Church Age, God is revealing His prophetic word for all who have ‘ears to hear and eyes to see’ Matthew 13:16.

Ezekiel 47:3-9: “As the man went on eastward with a measuring line in his hand, he measured off a thousand amot and led me across the water; the water was ankle deep. hen he measured off another thousand and led me across the water; the water was knee deep. He measured off a further thousand and led me across the water; the water was up to the waist. hen he measured yet another thousand, it was a stream I could not cross; for the water had swollen into a stream that could not be crossed except by swim…Then said he unto me: ‘These waters issue forth toward the eastern region and shall go down into the Arabah; and when they shall enter into the sea of the putrid waters the waters shall be healed. And it shall come to pass that every living creature wherewith it swarmeth whithersoever the rivers shall come shall live; and there shall be a very great multitude of fish; for these waters are come thither that all things be healed and may live whithersoever the river cometh.”

The millennial (thousand year reign of Christ on earth) river will flow from the eastern region and go down into Arabah. As the new river enters the Dead Sea it will become fresh. The Dead Sea is six times saltier than the ocean and it will become completely salt-free by a miracle of God. This lifeless body of water will then support life. Fishermen will crowd the shores.

Another way God will provide for His people is by the trees on the river banks that will bear fruit year round. The fruit will provide food and the leaves will provide healing.
