Often we struggle to make sense of the prophets's visions. We need to understand how such visions work and why.
Living in this world, the believer groans. What are we longing for? To leave behind what is tainted with death and to experience life in all its fulness.
In Ezekiel's vision of the true temple, Levites served their fellow-Israelites while priests served the Lord. Who are the Levites and who are the priests in the church today?
Paul knew that living in this world means living in a tent: uncomfortable, fragile and temporary. But he longed for the day when he would live in a house - a palace!
The city of God has exits and entrances - and they are to be carefully guarded.
