Meditation To Transform Imagination Meditation – The description of the Temple what Ezekiel imagined is the future Temple of Jesus, the Temple of the Messiah. The river that is described along with the directions and exact measurement bear significant meanings which when studied open our minds to deeper understandings to the uncovered levels of knowledge in God and His Kingdom.
What meditation does is help us develop a habit of focusing on what is important to our Lord and Saviour. Concentrating on all the various distractions that floods our consciousness throughout a single day is astounding. Just looking at life, traffic, animals, people, the news and commercials is a difficult balance and that's not counting family and friends and the multiple relationships that are required to function in your lifestyle. Reading the Word of God centers us and rejuvenates our spiritual awareness so that as we think on these things we tap into the resources that will deliver us from our self inflected nonsense.
The hack: Look for the voice of God in the deeper things revealed in His Word for the activity of hearing what He is saying and has said to become affirmed in your testimony.
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… 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.
O LORD Save, Jehovah Hoshiah (Psalm 20:9); we thank You Our God for the gifts You have given us through the visions and meditations of Ezekiel. We rise in a spirit of oneness to give You praise for the fresh anointing that transcends from generation and age to age. We declare and decree blessings upon those who meditate and concentrate on Your Word, so that by the blessings of the Holy Spirit we will prosper from the blessings of the river flowing from the Holy Temple of Jesus. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
