God Waters His Breadbasket
[6] Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. [7] And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. Isaiah 35:6-7.
In these scriptures we have springs of water breaking out in the wildernesses of Judah and the Negev, and a spring passing through the desert of the Arabah.  In Birth Pangs 25 and 26 I wrote concerning the lifting of the land from Geba to Rimmon, and showed how Ezekiel’s spring would form at the foot of the fault scarp generated by this lifting.  There will be a massive fault scarp extending all the way from Geba to Rimmon (See Figure 39), and at the base of this fault scarp hundreds of springs will burst forth in the Judean and Negev wildernesses.  These springs will water the Judean and Negev zones, eventually feeding into Zechariah’s river that empties into the Mediterranean Sea (See Figure 47).  The stream through the Arabah Desert was fully described in previous Birth Pangs.
In verse seven we are advised that the habitation of dragons (jackals or wild animals) will become a delta-like region filled with reeds and rushes like the Nile Delta.  I believe that the habitation zone mentioned by Isaiah was that portion of the wilderness zone of Judah that extended ten miles westward from the Dead Sea shoreline between Engedi and Eneglaim (See Figure 47).  It is in this zone that the existing and prophesied geological structure could support a bird foot delta, and it is this delta I have portrayed in Figure 47.
The tremendous influx of water into the parched ground of a thirsty land, outlined in Isaiah 35:6-7, is what leads to the scene outlined in Isaiah 35:1-2.
[1] The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. [2] It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God. Isaiah 35:1-2.
The glory of the Lord will not only be manifested by His presence when he returns to begin his millennial reign, but also by the beauty of a millennial landscape created by His own hands.  The waters of God will turn Israel into a subtropical paradise.
