The Lord continued, through a glorified heavenly man, to show Ezekiel the measurements of the courtyard of what we commonly call, “Ezekiel’s Temple,”

And he brought me into the inner court facing east; he measured the gateway according to these same measurements. Also its gate chambers, its gateposts, and its archways were according to these same measurements; and there were windows in it and in its archways all around; it was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. Its archways faced the outer court, and palm trees were on its gateposts on this side and on that side; and going up to it were eight steps (Ezekiel 40.32–34). 

When the Lord makes something, He intends for it to be a specific way. He has exact measurements in mind. This temple was not left to haphazard planning, but everything was laid out carefully.
