Ezekiel 36:33,35 “‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will also enable you to dwell in the cities, and the ruins shall be rebuilt…So they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the wasted, desolate, and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.”
God declared through Ezekiel what would be of Israel in the time of their cleansing. This was at a time when the sins of the nation had contaminated the land, causing it to be desolate. Sin corrupts beauty! The root of all problems is found in sin. All socio-economic disaster is rooted in sin. This was the problem in Israel that caused the desolation, but God had a solution. It was in the cleansing of the land, through the cleansing of the sins of the people. The result of which would cause the land to flourish again and prosper, so much so that it would be as beautiful and as prosperous as Eden was.
Today we have the most potent cleanser which is the blood of Jesus. For as many as have accepted the Lordship of Jesus Christ are blood washed and are clean before the Father. By Jesus’ atoning sacrifice we have been made clean once and for all (Heb. 10:10). This means that we can lay hold of this promise of restoration. It means that every dry, arid, unfruitful, desolate and broken area of your life ought to be restored back to a prosperous, flourishing and whole condition. It is a promise that belongs to you, and it is by faith you make this a reality.
Abundance is your portion, wholeness belongs to you, peace and joy and prosperity are yours. It is expected that by virtue of the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus that you ought to be living in the place of God’s delight (i.e. Eden). This is the promise we have from the Father. Begin to boldly confess these truths in your life by virtue of the blood of Jesus, and watch your life take a turnaround.
