God Waters His Breadbasket
 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and
tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out,
streams in the desert.  And the parched ground shall become a pool,
thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each
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
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
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
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
in previous Birth Pangs.
In verse seven we are advised that the
dragons (jackals or wild animals) will become a delta-like region filled
reeds and rushes like the Nile Delta. I
believe that the habitation zone mentioned by Isaiah was that portion of
wilderness zone of Judah that extended ten miles westward from the Dead
between Engedi and Eneglaim
(See Figure 47). It is in this zone that
the existing and prophesied geological structure could support a bird
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
outlined in Isaiah 35:1-2.
 The wilderness and the solitary place shall
glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the
Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon,
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
His presence when he returns to begin his millennial reign, but also by
beauty of a millennial landscape created by His own hands.
The waters of God will turn Israel into a
