Then I saw something like the sight of electrum, like the appearance of fire encased all around, from the appearance of His loins and upward; and from the appearance of His loins and downward, I saw something like the appearance of fire. And there was brightness all around Him. (Ezekiel 1:27)
note: God is a burning fire to burn away all things which do not correspond with His divine nature.
How does God burn away all that is in us that does not correspond with His divine nature?
Then He said to me, Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of Jehovah. Thus says the Lord Jehovah to these bones: I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. (Ezek 37:4 – 5)
note: The air, the breath, is the divine Spirit. The air came into the dead and dry bones to quicken them, to make them alive, and to give them all that they needed in order to constitute them into a body. By this breathing out of God we will be quickened, regenerated, and we will grow up and be built up.
Based on what is presented about God’s breath, what can we do to cooperate?
And on the banks on both sides of the river will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail; but they will bring forth new fruit every month, because the water for them flows out of the sanctuary. And their fruit shall be for food, and their leaves for healing. (Ezek 47:12)
In Ezekiel 47:12, where does the ministering and supplying water come from? What about today?
And these are the exits of the city: On the north side, which measures four thousand five hundred reeds, (Now the gates of the city shall be according to the names of the tribes of Israel) three gates to the north: the gate of Reuben, one; the gate of Judah, one; the gate of Levi, one; And on the east side, which is four thousand five hundred reeds, another three gates: the gate of Joseph, one; the gate of Benjamin, one; the gate of Dan, one; And on the south side, which measures four thousand five hundred reeds, another three gates: the gate of Simeon, one; the gate of Issachar, one; the gate of Zebulun, one; On the west side, which is four thousand five hundred reeds, their three gates: the gate of Gad, one; the gate of Asher, one; the gate of Naphtali, one. (Ezek 48:30 – 35)
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God. (Rev 2:7)
Use “THREE”, “FOUR”, “TWELVE”, “MULTIPLICATION”, and “MINGLING” to explain Ezekiel 48:30-35.
How does MINGLING explain EATING?
