When Jesus returns and sets up His literal Kingdom of the world, Jerusalem will be its capital.  Today we think of Jersusalem as a small parcel of land.  But Isaiah and Zechariah speak of great geological changes in Israel (A big remodeling job!).  It is not impossible to imagine a 2,500 square mile area for the temple and city fitted into a reshaped and enlarged land (Isaiah 26:15; 33:17; 54:2, and Zechariah 14:4-10).

The Zechariah passage tells of new valleys and rivers…and presumably the entire Dead Sea region will be lifted more than 1,300 feet, above the present sea level.  It will contain fish, and lots of them (Ezekiel 47:10).  This not some weird mystical apocolyptic vision Ezekiel saw.  This is a real, literal, coming Kingdom on earth, where the King of kings will rule with an iron rod. No more wishy-washy, fickle leaders.

The important thing to remember as we close out the book of Ezekiel is that in this newly remodeled land (Kingdom), “The LORD is there!” (Ezekiel 48:35).

Read Ezekiel 46:1 – 48:35

One Comment on “Ezekiel 46:1 – Ezekiel 48:35 (April 12)

  1. Yes! The Lord is There! Our Lord will solve the “Palestinian” problem too! In His time and in His literal Kingdom, Ezekiel 46:22-23 says “You are to allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the aliens who have settled among you and who have children. You are to consider them as native-born Israelites… In whatever tribe the alien settles, there you are to give him his inheritance,” declares the Sovereign Lord.
