Transcript

  • 1. Be Reverent – Part 7 The book of Ezekiel
  • 2. 1 In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the fall of the city – on that very day the hand of the Lord was on me and he took me there. 2 In visions of God he took me to the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, on whose south side were some buildings that looked like a city.
  • 3. 3 He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand. 4 The man said to me, ‘Son of man, look carefully and listen closely and pay attention to everything I am going to show you, for that is why you have been brought here. Tell the people of Israel everything you see.’ Ezekiel 40: 1-4
  • 4. ‘If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?’ Exodus 33: 15-16
  • 5. 1 Then the man brought me to the gate facing east, 2 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. 3 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 River Kebar, and I fell face down. 4 The glory of the Lord entered the temple through the gate facing east.
  • 6. 5 Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. 6 While the man was standing beside me, I heard someone speaking to me from inside the temple. 7 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 for ever. Ezekiel 43: 1-7a
  • 7. “How doesn’t this apply to us?”
  • 8. Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,… Hebrews 10: 19 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat. Hebrews 13: 10
  • 9. “How does this apply to us today?”
  • 10. As you come to him, the living Stone – rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him – you also, like living stones, are being built into a temple of the Spirit to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5
