Prophetic Proof of Purchase  004


Shalom, this is Yuval Shomron with another Prophetic Proof of Purchase.  God has given the chosen land of Israel to his chosen people.  But the land of Israel is still a prophecy being worked out.

In PSA 107:35-38, King David makes a profound prophetic statement.  “He changes a wilderness into a pool of water, And a dry land into springs of water; And there He makes the hungry to dwell, So that they may establish an inhabited city, And sow fields, and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest.  Also He blesses them and they multiply greatly; And He does not let their cattle decrease.”

          Perhaps the best example of the fulfillment of this scripture is the Dead Sea resort of Ein Ghedi.  Today, Ein Gedi is a thriving kibbutz, or communal farm, growing dates, and exotic flowers.  They operate a beach on the Dead Sea, plus a world famous spa and hotel.  You can tour the nature reserve, watching the hinds and rock rabbits, which David mentions in his psalms.  It is literally a fresh green spot in the middle of the wilderness.

          We also have an interesting look at the future of Ein Gedi in the scriptures as we read in EZE 47:8-10, “Then he said to me, "These waters go out toward the eastern region and go down into the Arabah; then they go toward the sea, being made to flow into the sea, and the waters of the sea become fresh.  "And it will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters go there, and the others become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes.   "And it will come about that fishermen will stand beside it; from Engedi to Eneglaim there will be a place for the spreading of nets. Their fish will be according to their kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea, very many.”

          When you first visit the Dead Sea, physically, the lowest place on the earth, you might read this passage in Ezekiel and say, “Yeah, right!, gimme’ a break!”  Because, at the moment, there is not one living cell in the Dead Sea.  But if you REALLY believe in God, and His word, you might consider investing is some future lakeshore property.


          So, when you visit Ein Gedi today, bring your Bible and your swimsuit.  There will come a day when you’ll need your fishing gear too!



This is Yuval Shomron in Jerusalem.
