Daniel Part 1

Ezekiel 45-48: The Millennial Temple

Introduction:  Ezekiel 40-48, Ezra, Nehemiah and certain other scriptures like Numbers are largely neglected in preaching and studies.  This neglect especially of Ezekiel 40-48 is hard to explain since many are big on talking about the millennium and Ezekiel 40-48 contains key prophecies and descriptions of the millennium.  In fact they claim to be preparing the brethren […]
