The Book of Ezekiel
The Altar & Ordinances
Ezekiel 43:1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east:
Who brought Ezekiel to the gate? The Man with a line of flax in His hand.
Ezekiel 43:2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.
The earth shined with His Shechinah glory. If one is standing in the east gate and faces east, what is it that you can see? You can see Mount Olivet, or stated a little differently, the Mount of Olives.
Ezekiel 43:3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.
In the vision, Ezekiel sees our Father coming toward the Sanctuary EXACTLY as he saw him in the first few verses of chapter one of this same book. He is in that bronze-colored vehicle, along with the four cherubim, and His throne.
Some people might wonder why He has to travel from place to place in a vehicle of some sort. And the answer is really quite simple, as far as our Father is concerned: spiritual bodies have SUBSTANCE to them.
They are not spooks or ghosts or smoke or fog. The spiritual body is very similar to a flesh and blood body because it can eat food just like we do, it takes up space just like our bodies do today. Only so many spiritual bodies will fit on an elevator, just as only the same number of earthly bodies can fit on that same elevator.
His Throne must then be made of a material that also has weight and form. Therefore, they both, Father and Throne, must need some sort of transportation and that vehicle is described quite clearly by Ezekiel in chapter one.
I think that it’s very interesting that on this very day there are news reports about UFO’s being reported by U.S. Navy pilots, almost daily, over a two-year period. For one thing, people are being more open about discussing these sightings, rather than keeping that information in the darkness of the cloak and dagger world.
And from what I’ve heard, it’s not that there are more of these UFO’s being sighted on a daily basis, but rather the radar and photographic equipment that is on an FA-18 fighter jet has been recently updated from the 1980’s era of technology to today’s more sophisticated and modern equipment.
In the past, we simply did not have the radar that would pick these objects up and show them on a screen. Many of them can be seen with the naked eye and sightings have been reported and recorded as far back in time as the days of the Roman Empire.
When I came to destroy the city. That statement is not entirely true because Father wants him to prophesy to the people of the coming destruction of the city and the people going into captivity.
Ezekiel 43:4 And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.
Father came through this east gate.
Ezekiel 43:5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house.
Father entered into that Sanctuary and His Shechinah glory filled the entire room. And that is something that you should not marvel at because during the eternity His Shechinah glory will light the entire planet to where there will be no need for the sun nor the moon.
✡ Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. KJV
Ezekiel 43:6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me.
The man with the line of flax in his hand that did all the measuring.
Ezekiel 43:7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
Where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever. How long would Father reside there? FOREVER. The Millennial years and the eternity will be spent right here on earth, although the surface of the earth will revert back to the same condition it was in in the first heaven/earth age.
The sun and moon will still be here during the Millennium. And there will be no sin committed during the Millennial time either so Father’s name WILL NOT be defiled ever again.
Ezekiel 43:8 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and their post by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger.
We will dwell closely with Him and everyone will be able to see Him BUT only His Elect will be able to come close and touch and talk with Him.
Ezekiel 43:9 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever.
Stop worshipping other men and devote your time and attention to Me and we will dwell together forever. Carcases indicates that men will die but our Father will not.
Ezekiel 43:10 Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.
The subject of the rest of this chapter will be the altar and the measurements of it and the video at the top of the page will give you a picture of the altar, although this is a very short video on this chapter.
Ezekiel 43:11 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and do them.
And if they be ashamed of all that they have done. If they understand the law given by the Father then they should suffer the shame for ignoring those laws.
And if they see the house and the shape of it, and the places for going in and going out; if they understand what the ordinances and laws of the Millennium are, then DO them.
Ezekiel 43:12 This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.
Notice that the word law is not plural, this is one law unto itself. And what mountain is being talked about? Mount Zion, of course. The entire area is to be considered most holy.
Ezekiel 43:13 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about shall be a span: and this shall be the higher place of the altar.
The same ruler is to be applied as before.
Ezekiel 43:14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser settle even to the greater settle shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.
Ezekiel 43:15 So the altar shall be four cubits; and from the altar and upward shall be four horns.16 And the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad, square in the four squares thereof.
Ezekiel 43:17 And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it shall be half a cubit; and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about; and his stairs shall look toward the east.
Ezekiel 43:18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord God; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.
These are NOT blood ordinances. Those were nailed to the cross when Christ died there.
Ezekiel 43:19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord God, a young bullock for a sin offering.
Ezekiel 43:20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon the border round about: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it.
Ezekiel 43:21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.
Ezekiel 43:22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock.
Ezekiel 43:23 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.
Ezekiel 43:24 And thou shalt offer them before the Lord, and the priests shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering unto the Lord.
Ezekiel 43:25 Seven days shalt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock, without blemish.
Ezekiel 43:26 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they shall consecrate themselves.
Ezekiel 43:27 And when these days are expired, it shall be, that upon the eighth day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you, saith the Lord God. KJV
Whatever the true nature of these sacrifices are, Father will display that to us when the time comes.
So, there you have it. The Millennial Temple and the one-mile square wall that surrounds it. Father gave us some pretty explicit measurements and some other people, smarter than I am, were able to put those measurements into digital elements and made a video out of them. In this case, a video is worth a thousand words, indeed. Great job!
