Discussion for Ezekiel 45

  • Jeremiah
    Zola. Verse 23 answers your question. It is seven bullocks and seven rams for each of the seven days. So it ends up being 49 after all seven days.
  • So was 49 bullocks rams offered or was a one of each per day?
  • Sylvia
    While we are not required to make blood sacrifices because Jesus had paid it all. But must he bear the cross alone? We are to still sacrifice ourselves just as the lamb pure and holy. Without restraint sacrifice we cannot live holy as he has commanded us.
  • Connie
    I was just curious about the last few chapters I have written. If this is prophecy about the Millenium, then why does it still talk about sacrifices. Jesus is the Lamb and He already paid the price. Why would we have to do that during the 1000 years?
