Ezekiel 45 -48
We’re at the end of Ezekiel and I have been surprised at how much I have enjoyed Ezekiel. Its been great to read the great words of God that promise redemption from exile and slavery but also speak of his justice and righteousness. Looking at Ezekiel has reminded that it is all about God showing grace to the wicked, not because of anything that is in them but everything that is in God… (Check out Ezekiel 36:24 – 38… God’s faithfulness to his promise to Abraham)
We get to chapters 45 – 48 (even 40 – 48) and I started to wonder… “where does this all fit in? Haven’t we already looked at the architecture of the temple somewhere else in the bible?”
Also how does the prince fits into this? No longer is the king mentioned but the prince appears to have taken over as a head of state…
Reading the chapters today made me think of Revelation 21 – 22 – the New Jerusalem that was to come. What’s the name of the city? “The Lord is there.”
I am not sure how all the boundaries of the land fits into that…? I would love to hear other people’s thoughts and reflections on Ezekiel!
