The Heavenly Jerusalem And The Earthly Temple, What Is The Connection?






Is The New Jerusalem Described In Rev 21 And The Jehovah Shammah Described In Ezekiel 40-48th Chapter The Same Or Different?


Question: Is the temple called as "New Jerusalem" in Rev 21st Chapter different from Ezekiel's "New Temple" called as Jehovah Shammah described by him in the 40th to 48th Chapter?

Answer : The
"New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 has 12 gates named after Israel (Rev 21:12), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel has 12 gates named after Israel (Eze 48:30). The "New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 has 12 foundations named after Apostles (Rev 21:14), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel has foundation not described. The "New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 is 1400 miles square and tall (Rev 21:16), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel is One mile square (Ezek 48:30). The "New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 is seen coming Down from heaven (Rev 21:2), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel is located in Israel on Earth (Ezek 40:2). The "New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 has no Temple but God and the Lamb are its Temple (Rev 21:22), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel is just north of the city (Eze 40:2). The "New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 has no sin; nothing impure will ever enter (Rev 21:27), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel will have daily sin offerings in the Temple (Eze 45:13-15,17). The "New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 will have no more death (Rev 21:4), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel will still experience death because of continuing sin on earth (Eze 44:25 also Isa 65:20). The "New Jerusalem" in Revelation 21 will have no natural beings but only the perfected ones (Rev 21:27), while the "New Temple" described by Ezekiel will have natural beings (Eze 46:16).

From the above clear differences, we know that the New Jerusalem temple will be in heaven from which the Church and Jesus Himself will operate upon the whole earth with a rod of iron to bring all nations of the earth in to submission to God's will
(Rev 19:14-16), but the New Temple where the Lord Jesus will be present there for a Millennium will be on earth in the present nation of Israel. They are both different locations and different temples.


Much Blessings...

About

apostolicrevelation.info is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
