    Ez.47 "North South Divide" (1 of 2)

    While continuing with Ezekiel the north refers to Zion founded above mountains, "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King." (Ps.48:1-2) This is a holy mountain. Ezekiel is given a guided tour like St John, Ezekiel refers to the city, "and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south."(40:2) The throne of the Lamb is on the right hand of the throne of God. Ps,110:1 also refers to 'thy footstool'. So the nations are given a place in relation to the throne.

The throne of glory is set in relation to his 'footstool', "when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel."(Matt.19:28) This judgement we shall see in the measurement the angel uses, "a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit"(Ez.40:5) The same measure applies to the idol of the nations."Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits."(Dan.2:5). On the other hand in the case of St John it was a single measurement man-angel where the man and his angel in Christ served as one unit. "and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day."(Is.2:11).O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord./Therefore thou hast forsaken ..."
