Ezekiel 43:13 is one of those verses that if you glance over or miss the key phrase in it, then you will probably read the remainder of this chapter and the next two chapters without much understanding of what we are to learn.
In this pamphlet #1298 and the next one #1299 we are now going to be shown the measurements of The Altar in verses 13-17 and then the ordinances of The Altar in vs. 14-27.
THE ALTAR. 12 cubits square (25 ft. x 25 ft.) on its base (settle) of 14 cubits square. (vs. 13-17)
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 key phrase is the special reminder from chapter 40, verse 5, that the cubit used here is a cubit (6 handbreadths) PLUS a handbreadth (+1), making a 7 HANDBREADTH CUBIT, even a spiritually perfect cubit!
Since the measure used here is one seventh larger than that used in Solomon's Temple, this gives the Millennium Temple an ADDED DIMENSION and that dimension and the measurements thereof are SPIRITUAL
Again, this is all about that which is SPIRITUAL, not PHYSICAL!
Do not forget that all people
will be in their spiritual bodies
and we will therefore be in the "spiritual dimension",
the 7th Dispensation we call the Millennium.
Please take time to read pamphlet #1292 again.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
