Ezekiel 40:14 - He made also posts, threescore cubits; and the court reached unto the posts, round about the gate.
If you have read Ezekiel chapter 40 to 44 and if you have any architectural inclinations you with find these chapters like a confused design of a Temple.
If you have seen the Traquair House maze or the Hampton Court maze it is difficult to find your way through them and children require an adult to stand on the wall (or at a height) to guide them in and out.
When The Lord had explained me the structure and functioning of the various parts of the inner man I thought this was done, for I had not read about this from any other source. But after a few days the Lord gave me scriptures from these chapters Ezekiel 40 to 44 and I realized these temples were not some miniature confused temple, but the design structure of a heart (inner man) of man. They define the heart of the perfect redeemed heart.
One needs to know Bible image study, Bible numerics, word study, creation etc. with a firm foundation in the basics of the Bible to understand this. In short these chapters are like the Gospel of John may sound simple but are very highly coded.
The whole Bible or the foundation purpose of this creation of mankind is all to do with the inner man. You can even call it a laundry where the hearts of the people of God are cleaned and made whole; the corrupt made incorruptible mainly by the humbled God the Son and Spirit of God.
The Lord not only shows us our deficiencies but through Ezekiel the perfect heart of the redeemed man (Jesus being the 1st) was declared long before He came as man in the flesh.
The war and all the battles in spirit are fought here, in the battle ground called heart or inner man. We need to fight the battles, but the war is already won by Him. Even regarding the battles He has given us all the weapons, defense systems, the war maps and the 100 percent winning strategy all in the Bible and By His sacrifice.
The Bible is called the book of instructions, which are instructions to overcome and to become the perfect Temple where the glory of God is present.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, our spirits got corrupted because sin came into our hearts. Our corrupt spirits cannot enter Heaven nor come before You for anything corrupt cannot exist before You, for You are Holy. You gave us not only the Word but by the sacrifice of your Son You opened shut doors for us and by your Spirit decode and guide us through your Word. Holy Spirit, work in our hearts and make them the perfect Temple wherein your glory dwells...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
