Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Let's measure the temple of God as John was told to do in Rev. 11:1
Rev. 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
Remember John was taken spiritually into the future (Rev. 1:10) to "The Lord's Day", the Millennium which in this year 2007 is very close a hand. (documenting that is for another lesson which we will get to later).
Why do you imagine John was told to measure the temple again during these end times?
For the same reason Ezekiel was 2500 years ago.
Just like the temple was over thrown by the physical King of Babylon in Ezekiel's time the spiritual church is being taken over by the spiritual King of Babylon (satan, the spurious christ) during our time.
Ezekiel 8:9 ...Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
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.
