Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

August 26 - Evening

"Then the man brought me to the gate facing east,
and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from
the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.

The vision I saw was like the vision I had seen when he came to destroy the city and like the visions I had seen by the Kebar River, and I fell facedown.

The glory of the Lord entered the temple through the gate facing east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

While the man was standing beside me, I heard someone speaking to me from inside the temple.

He said:
'Son of man, this is the place of my throne and the place for the soles of my feet. This is where I will live among the Israelites forever. The people of Israel will never again defile my holy name — neither they nor their kings — by their prostitution and the funeral offerings for
their kings at their death.'

- Ezekiel 43:1-7

The Lord Returns to Israel, to Jerusalem and to the Temple in Glory    

In Ezekiel 43:1-7 the appearance of the glory of God is described. The glory (Hb, kabod) of the Lord that Ezekiel sees is identified as the same glory and the same Lord that Ezekiel saw when God appeared to him at the Kebar River in chapters 1 and 3. It is the same God that left the temple in Jerusalem in chapter 10-11 (also Ezekiel 8:2-5). Ezekiel is given a vision of the Lord returning to Jerusalem to occupy a new temple that had been described in detail in Ezekiel 40-42.

It seems clear that this text is describing the Lord returning in glory to his restored people of Israel to occupy a future temple that is yet to be constructed in Jerusalem. Zerubbabel’s temple of 516 BC and Herod’s temple of the New Testament would not meet the description, the dimensions, the conditions and it did not have the returned glory of the presence of God. Also, neither of those two temples held the Ark of the Covenant.

The appearing of the Lord in glory and coming from Mt. Olive east of the Jerusalem temple mount would fit well with Zechariah’s description of the same event that will inaugurate the kingdom reign of the Lord (Zechariah 14:1-9). This would be the return of Jesus described by Jesus in Matthew 25:31 and 26:29.

In verse 7 of Ezekiel 43 we hear the Lord begin to speak to Ezekiel from his throne in the Most Holy Place of the New Temple. Ezekiel is told in 43:10-11:

As for you, son of man, describe to the house of Israel the temple, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and they shall measure the plan. And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the temple, its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, that is, its whole design; and make known to them as well all its statutes and its whole design and all its laws, and write it down in their sight, so that they may observe all its laws and all its statutes and carry them out.” - Ezekiel 43:10-11

  Christian Quote from Church History

“Although claiming my true identity as a child of God, I still live as though the God to whom I am returning demands an explanation. I still think about his love as conditional and about home as a place I am not yet fully sure of. While walking home, I keep entertaining doubts about whether I will be truly welcome when I get there.”
– Henri J. M. Nouwen

“The Return of the
Prodigal Son”

Something to Ponder??

When Jesus died some of the believers who had previously died and been placed in tombs around Jerusalem returned to life at the time of Jesus death. After his resurrection they went into the city and appeared to people. (Matthew 27:52-53)

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Anakainoo (Gr) – renew (Eng) – the Greek word anakainoo is a compound word made with the prefix ana- meaning “again” or “back,” being place in front of kainos which is the Greek word
for “new.” Together ana-kainoo literally means “again-new.” So, anakainoo is translated as
“renew” in 2 Corinthians 4:16 and Colossians 3:10. In Ephesians 4:23 the word ananeoo
(from ana- meaning “again” and neos meaning “recent”) is used for “renew”

    The first capital city of the northern kingdom of Israel was Tirzah. Jeroboam I ruled here in 1 Kings 14:17. Tirzah was excavated in 1949. According to 1 Kings 16:23-24 Omri moved the capital of Israel from Tirzah to Samaria. These things were found in the excavation of Tirzah that confirm the biblical record:

    (1) The construction of governmental buildings of Tirzah had begun, but construction had been abandoned and left unfinished. This would match the time of Omri’s move to Samaria;

    (2) There were very, very wealthy people living next to extremely poor people living in extreme poverty as Israel’s prophet Amos says when he rebukes his culture in
    Amos 5:11;

    (3) The destruction level of the Assyrian invasion in 721 BC is irrefutable.
