First of all, his temperament will be that of a strong, brave, eager, quiet warrior- a war horse.
Rio the War Horse:
– He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing;
he does not shy away from the sword.
– The quiver rattles against his side,
along with the flashing spear and lance.
– In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground;
he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.
– At the blast of the trumpet he snorts, ‘Aha!’
He catches the scent of battle from afar,
the shout of commanders and the battle cry.
Second of all: he will carry on the spiritual inheritance that Gabriel and I are working so hard to build for this family:
The House of Martinez, the Chosen
– “But now listen, Gabriel, my servant,
Freedom, whom I have chosen.
– This is what the LORD says—
he who made you, who formed you in the womb,
and who will help you:
Do not be afraid, Freedom, my servant,
Gabriel, whom I have chosen.
– For I will pour water on the thirsty land,
and streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring,
and my blessing on your descendants. – They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams.
– One (Vivia) will say, ‘I belong to the LORD ‘;
another (Rio) will call himself by the name of Jesus;
Still another will write the Lord’s name on their hands
and will take the name of Martinez as their own.”
(3 kids????) hmmm.
Third: His special and unique gifting will be healing and bringing words of life to all he meets. Carrying with him for others, hope of a new life!
Paolo Rio Chaim: Little River of Life
In my vision, the man brought me back to the entrance of the Temple. There I saw a stream flowing east from beneath the door of the Temple and passing to the right of the altar on its south side. The man brought me outside the wall through the north gateway and led me around to the eastern entrance. There I could see the water flowing out through the south side of the east gateway. Measuring as he went, he took me along the stream for 1,750 feet and then led me across. The water was up to my ankles. He measured off another 1,750 feet and led me across again. This time the water was up to my knees. After another 1,750 feet, it was up to my waist. Then he measured another 1,750 feet, and the river was too deep to walk across. It was deep enough to swim in, but too deep to walk through.
He asked me, “Have you been watching, son of man?” Then he led me back along the riverbank. When I returned, I was surprised by the sight of many trees growing on both sides of the river. Then he said to me, “This river flows east through the desert into the valley of the Dead Sea.
The waters of this stream will make the salty waters of the Dead Sea fresh and pure.
There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows.
Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will become fresh.
Life will flourish wherever this water flows.
Fishermen will stand along the shores of the Dead Sea. All the way from En-gedi to En-eglaim, the shores will be covered with nets drying in the sun. Fish of every kind will fill the Dead Sea, just as they fill the Mediterranean. But the marshes and swamps will not be purified; they will still be salty.
Fruit trees of all kinds will grow along both sides of the river.
The leaves of these trees will never turn brown and fall, and there will always be fruit on their branches.
There will be a new crop every month, for they are watered by the river flowing from the Temple.
The fruit will be for food and the leaves for healing.”
Ezekiel 47: 1-12
