By Don Ruhl

The Holy Spirit used more writing through Ezekiel to picture for us the third temple, than what the Spirit used for picturing Solomon’s temple and the rebuilding of the temple after Judah returned from Babylonian captivity. The picture continues,

Also He brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the temple; so I looked, and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord; and I fell on my face. And the Lord said to me, “Son of man, mark well, see with your eyes and hear with your ears, all that I say to you concerning all the ordinances of the house of the Lord and all its laws. Mark well who may enter the house and all who go out from the sanctuary” (Ezekiel 44.4–5). 

Ezekiel saw the glory of the Lord fill the house of the Lord and that made Ezekiel fall upon his face, and he was to know by seeing and by hearing all that the Lord ordered for this house. Then the Lord told Ezekiel to note who may enter the house and everyone who went out from the sanctuary of this house.

We need to understand that the glory of the Lord fills the house of God, which is the church of God, and if you are a Christian, you take part in that glory.
