There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. Psalm 46:4 (KJV)
What a picture is conveyed to us as we read of the river that flows from the right side of the altar in the temple of God. We see it bringing life and healing provision everywhere it goes.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:2 (KJV) This river, nahar, we are told, has, peleg, or, channels, which make glad, samach, that is, causes the city of God to rejoice and be glad. This river begins at the right hand of God where we can look “unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Heb.12:2 KJV). It is there we see the hole in the “Rock” from which the river flows.
But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. John 19:34 (KJV)
The risen Christ is the Rock that followed Israel in the wilderness and gave water at Moses command. This eternal “Rock” is the source of that water which flows through the City of God and carries leaves of healing for the Nations.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:2 (KJV)
Today, this same water bubbles out of the lips of those who will yield their lips to utter divine words of healing.
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:38 (KJV)
Make glad the City of God. Let the river of healing flow.
