My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Ezekiel 48

Where God lives

Each tribe will have their portion of land and there will be the special central one by Judah for the temple and the Priests of Zadok. The good ones. Some of the sacred portion will be city, some for Levites and some for the prince too. Each side of the city will have three gates, so there will be a total of 12 gates. One for each Apostle. I mean tribe.

Key verse:
35. And the name of the city from that time on will be:
The Lord is There.

My thoughts:
Here endeth Ezekiel, and it's final line puts the entire last eight chapters in perspective. All the exact measurements of the temple and everything lead to this point - Yahweh lives here. It is his house. The creator's house is in Israel.
