 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. Ezekiel 47:12.
In Birth Pangs 1 through 6 we detailed the unbelievable shaking that would change the geomagnetic balance of the earth by a fantastic shift in its outer and interior structure. One of the outcomes of this change will be a change in the climate of Israel. The latitudinal shift associated with winter and summer will be greatly reduced, such that never again will there be a killing frost in Israel south of the mountains north of the Sea of Galilee.
In America we are most familiar with broadleaf, deciduous trees that lose their leaves after the first frost. But many broadleaf, common in tropical and subtropical climatic zones, never shed their leaves because of frost. These broadleaf fruit producers bear foliage throughout each year, constantly losing older leaves as new budding leaves push them off. The fig tree of Israel will not shed its leaves in a deciduous manner unless a frost occurs, and it sometimes keeps its leaves year round. Trees need two things to grow year round and remain green while producing fruit: water and a suitable climate. And God will produce both by His great shaking of the Earth and Israel. The following Scriptures describe this great worldwide shaking and its devastating affect upon the land of Israel and the army of the antichrist.
 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;  And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.  And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.  And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; Revelation 6:12-15.
 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.  And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.  The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.  And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. Revelation 11:12-15 & 18.
 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.  And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.  And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.  And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. Revelation 16:16-19.
 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.  For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;  So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.  And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: Ezekiel 38:18-20 & 39:2.
Ezekiel 47:12 portrays Israel, following the shaking, as a nation dominated by a new frost free climate with more water than it can use on a preexisting rich soil profile. The “leaf shall not fade” because frost will not turn it to a winter brown. But, as a new green leaf bud pushes up into the old leaf’s socket, it will simply push it from the branch before any substantial fading can occur. And, “neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed,” for without a frost some trees will produce fruit more than once a year. And, “it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months,” for different trees will bring forth fruit at different times. One may bring two annual crops to maturity, one in January and one in July, while another does the same in March and September, etc. There will be fruit coming forth from Israel in every month of the year. But, in spite of the climatic change, none of this would have been possible without God’s new water supply in Israel, and the fruit comes forth “because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary.” If you want to see how God geologically brings a preexisting water supply to the surface during this great shaking of the land, then go back and review Birth Pangs Number 25 through 29.
