Discussion for Ezekiel 43

    Insight; "The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us; and we beheld His glory; the glory of the only begotten of the Father." Jesus is the Mediator between God and men; God manifest in the flesh, having become a man, in order to suffer death for all men! "Son of God" names His Divine Origin; Son of man means flesh and blood. The Promised Redeemer had to be a man AND God! One doesn't void the other

    Hi Araxi. I'm not sure that the idea of a rebuilt temple can easily be justified. Those who do usually place Daniel's 70th week, usually thought of as Christ's passion week, in some future setting. Thus to make their interpretation of Daniel's prophecy sound tangible a rebuilt temple needs to be standing and functioning. There are many authors who write for and against this idea. Hope this helps!

    Is the end of this chapter referring to the sacrifices which will be done in the THIRD Temple, when it is built? Can somebody clarify this?
  • Daniel Okiror
    When you confess you sin to the Lord in hour with Him alone, He will see you a new creation and will grant your petitions with kindness and mercy.

    The return of the glory of God 1-12 , The description of the temple vs 17-27
  • Jim Johasnon
    We are to search God and learn from His Word to be ashamed of sin we commit, then repent. During the period of the Law in which Ezekiel lived we see specifics about the construction of the altar to make it holy. We also see that God revealed Himself at the temple through the Priest. In these days of Grace our bodies are the temple, we are the priests and God reveals himself through our daily reading of the Word. Furthermore, the sacrifice of blood under the law was of animals with specific instructions for holiness. Under Grace the price of blood was paid by Jesus, our holy sacrifice. So, worship of Holy God remains, repentance remains and the manner of sacrifice is changed.
