THE EZEKIEL'S TEMPLE VISION:
WORLDWIDE ADMINISTRATION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD
It is written in Ezekiel 40:1,2 that the prophet had this vision in Nisan 10th, which suggests that the establishment of the direct heavenly authority of the Kingdom of God on Earth, will begin on that
date, that is, seven months after the Tishri 10th (Ethanim) (including the intercalary month Ve-Adar) (Ezekiel 39:14): “In the 25th year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth day of the month, in the 14th year after the city had fallen, on that very day the hand of
Jehovah was upon me, and he took me to the city. 2 By means of visions from God, he brought me to the land of Israel and set me down on a very high mountain, on which there was a structure like a city to the south” (Ezekiel 40:1,2).
While the prophet is in exile in Babylon, the vision makes him return to the soil of Israel. He sees as the constructions of a city. The following verses describe a man measuring what is the appearance of a temple (Ezekiel 40: 3-5).
The copper aspect of the man, seems to mean that it is an angel that measures the temple. To understand the symbolic meaning of what this angel does, by measuring the temple, it is advisable to make a big "zoom
out" on the whole of this prophecy: In the broad lines of chapters 40 to 48, the prophet Ezekiel is in Israel, he sees a temple, from which flows a stream that becomes a great river, which revives the Dead Sea. The vision
ends with the territorial distribution of the country of Israel.
What does represent the whole of this biblical vision, which is a prophetic fresco just like the Apocalypse? It is Jesus Christ who gave the main key of understanding,
which, by domino effect, makes it possible to understand the framework of Ezekiel's Vision: “Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, in the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will sit on
12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel”” (Matthew 19:28).
Through this teaching, we understand several things: the prophetic element of the Mosaic Law regarding the future worldwide administration of the
Kingdom of God, as the apostle Paul wrote, under inspiration in Hebrews 10:1. The former Israel, prophetically represented the future worldwide territory,
in the earthly paradise. It makes possible to understand the general meaning of the prophecy of Ezekiel 40-48, and the Revelation, namely: The prophetic description of the administrative authority of the Kingdom of God on earthly paradise, exercised by the Chieftain.
The administration of the spiritual and priesthood authority exercised by the sons of Zadok (earthly priests), seconded by the nonpriestly Levites who will assist the priests in their priesthood authority.
In the book of Revelation,
these two forms of authority are summarized by the function of the 144,000 heavenly kings and priests associated with the King Jesus Christ: “you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth” (Revelation 5:10).
This royal authority of the 144,000 will be relayed by the "Chieftain(s)" or the "Prince(s)", who will
exercise administrative authority, in connection with the territorial and demographic management of the future resurrected people by the Kingdom of
God (Ezekiel 44: 3). And the priestly authority of the 144,000 will be represented on Earth by the Sons of Zadok
who will administer the teaching, the judgment of the resurrected on earth, in the framework of the authority according the Temple Sanctuary. The prophecy of Ezekiel 40-48 shows how these two kinds of authorities are used by the "Chieftain", outside the Temple, and the Sons of
Zadok, inside the Temple. The prophecy symbolically describes the earthly blessings of the Kingdom of God through this Great River
that brings the Dead Sea back to life, which is obviously the prophetic representation of the gradual resurrection of humanity that died by the effects of the Adamic death (Ezekiel 47 : 6-10; Romans 5:12).
These very interesting
aspects of the administration and blessings of the Kingdom of God will be detailed in later Bible studies. And you will not fail to notice that the Bible gives a lot of details about how the Earth will be managed, under God's Full Love Domination, through
His kingdom of which Jesus Christ is the King. In Part 2, we will understand that the measurement of the temple by the angel, in Ezekiel
40: 3-5, represents the worldwide judgment of 1,000 years.
