-This chapter depicts the inner Temple area in the vision, which began in chapter 40. The man with measuring rod brought Ezekiel into the nave and gave the measurement dimensions of the area declaring it to be “the most holy place (Ezekiel 41:1-4, 12-15).” Then the wall of the Temple was measured, and a description of the three stories of chambers was given (Ezekiel 41:5-11). Cherubim and palm trees were the Decorator’s choice in ornate design, and there were latticed windows on the sides of the Temple’s porch and chambers with paneled wood (Ezekile 41:16-26). The alter was of wood, which “is the table that is before the LORD (this is either the table of the Presence, Exodus 25:30, or the altar of incense, Exodus 30:1-3, Ezekiel 41:22).”
-*Application* God is a Designer of beauty and grace. His Temple will be beautiful, and we are spiritually housing His presence as believers (1 Corinthians 6:19).
