Spirit: River - Rob Scott-Cook (7 pm Podcast)


April 29th 2018. Spirit: River (Ezekiel 47). Ezekiel was a priest, the son of a priest, carried into exile in the first wave of Babylonian captivity with Jehoacin in 597 B.C. Five years later when he was 30 and the age he would have started his temple ministry Ezekiel has a visionary encounter with God and is commissioned as a Prophet. His deeply symbolic work carries a strong focus on the temple and also on the Spirit. At the end of his book Ezekiel has a vision of a restored temple and the return of the glory of God to the temple and Jerusalem (40, 43). Then flows the amazing picture of a life-giving river flowing out of the temple, which is picked up and amplified in the last chapter of the bible in Revelation 22. Download Discussion notes
