What About Ezekiel Chapter 47, Verses 1 - 12, and Revelation Chapter 22 Verses 1 - 5?

Here are some things that I would like you to know. Ezekiel chapter 47, verses 1 - 12 is not referring to which that happens in Revelation 22: 1 - 5. (See Rev. 21: 2 - 3, 10 - 27.). Ezekiel 47: 1 - 12 is referring to the temple of God, which will be built in the beginning of the tribulation period, and the water will flow from it during "the millennial reign of Christ." (Read Zech. 14: 4 - 5, 8, Joel 3: 18.). (See also Isa. 2: 1 - 4, 9: 6 - 7, 11: 1 - 10, 33: 17, 20 - 22, 24, 35: 1 - 10, 65: 18 - 25, 66: 23 - 24, Zech. 14: 6 - 11, 16 - 21, Joel 3: 17 - 21, Jer. 3: 16 - 18, Mic. 4: 1 - 4, Rev. 20: 1 - 6.). Revelation 22: 1 - 5 is what will happen in the New Jerusalem after the millennial reign of Christ when God (Jesus) creates the New Heaven and the New Earth (Isa. 66: 22). It is the Eternal State called Heaven. (Read Rev. 21: 1 - 22.). The saved (Christians) will dwell there in that New Earth and in the New Jerusalem as well.

Do not change (or call it spiritual and not something that will really happen) the content of Ezekiel 47: 1 - 12. This is a real temple that will be built in Jerusalem during the tribulation period. Do not change the city, which is described in Revelation 21: 2, 10 - 27, and 22: 1 - 5, into something other than what it is either. Those verses are not referring to (they do not represent) the Church as some have suggested. It is wrong for one to spiritualize (change) the city of God (the New Jerusalem) in Revelation 21: 2, 10 - 27 into the Bride of Christ as some have done. (Read also Rev. 22: 1 - 5.). This too is a real city. It will come down out of Heaven, the third Heaven, and to the newly created heaven(s) and earth after the 1000 year reign of Christ, and after Satan's and man's final rebellion (Rev. 20: 7 - 10). God (Jesus) is going to create a New Heaven and a New Earth. We will dwell there in that New Earth, and in the New Jerusalem as well, for all eternity. (See Isa. 66: 22, II Pet. 3: 10, Rev. 21: 1.). In Revelation 21: 9 the angel showed the bride, who was in the city, New Jerusalem, to John. Then the angel gave John the description of that city. However, John saw this scene in a vision. This event will take place in the future. (Read "The New Heavens and the New Earth".).
