Things will not always be as they are today. Fourteen years after the destruction of Jerusalem's temple Ezekiel has the privilege of seeing in detail what no other man has seen--the Millennial Temple (Ez. 40:1). This temple or sanctuary symbolizes God's presence among His New Covenant people during the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth. No detail is hidden from Ezekiel:
From her inception as a nation in Egypt, her delivery from Egypt, and her entry into the land promised to Abraham and his descendants, Israel has proven to be unfaithful to her Creator and God. Ezekiel, however, sees another day, far off in the future, when Israel will be faithful to her God for 1,000 years. How that scene must encourage his heart as he lives among those in exile, without a temple and without God's manifest presence. Things will not always be as they are today!
What does the vision regarding Israel's future millennial temple reveal about her priests and the practice of sacrifice?
