Daily Bible Reading: Ezekiel 46 and Revelation 14

Ezekiel 46 – The east gate of the inner court is always to be shut for the six regular days of the week but opened on the Sabbath. It is also to be opened on the day of the New Moon. The prince must walk through on these days and the priests offer his holocaust and communion sacrifices. The animals to be offered are listed in detail.

 

The figure who appeared in 40-42 to show Ezekiel the exact dimensions and specifications the new Temple reappears here in verse 19.

Revelation 14 – Next he sees Mt Zion and a Lamb with 144,000 people with his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads (14:1).

 

They sing a hymn only they can learn. They are virgin men to be first-fruits for God and the Lamb. “They never allowed a lie to pass their lips and no fault can be found in them” (14:5).

           

An angel comes announcing the Good News of eternity to all. A second announces the fall of Babylon and a third announces the fate of all who have worshipped the beast and his statue. A voice from heaven tells him to write “Happy are those who die in the Lord! Happy indeed, the Spirit says; now they can rest for ever after their work, since their good deeds go with them’” (14:13).

           

Then he sees a white cloud and “one like a son of man” sitting on it with a crown and a sharp sickle in his hand. He gathers the harvest of grapes in and puts them all in God’s winepress.
