Ezekiel 47:12 NLT
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.

Though the scripture (Ezekiel 47:12) is usually equated with heaven, we must know that in heaven we do not need healing. Healing is required while we are yet in this world.
In the New Testament, the River is the River of the Holy Spirit.
John 07:37-39 NLT – …“Anyone who is thirsty may come to Me! Anyone who believes in Me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” (When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.)
The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. When you continue to glorify Him, lift Him up, remain baptised in His presence, the River begins to overflow from within you.
The people you meet are the ones who are planted by the River and are watered through the flow from within you.
If you live in this, people will experience this divine touch.
The Holy Spirit will flow through your life, if you have a continual fellowship with the Him.
He wants to flow not only in you, but also through you.
The fruits the Holy Spirit produces through you will be for spiritual food for those around you. The gifts or leaves that the Holy Spirit brings will be of healing for them.
