When was the Book of Ezekiel fulfilled before Christ? Nothing on 1000 years in it.

    The book of Ezekiel is history, clearly over, goats, bulls animal lamb blood temple sacrifice . Carefully read Ezekiel 40-47
    Asking for salvation and cleansing of sins with goat blood is a blasphemy today --Christ's blood cannot be defiled by praying over goat blood
    offerings as in the old Temple of Ezekiel 43:18-27
    Hebrews 10:4 4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
    Only unbelievers in God can look forward to a future 1000 year Millenial temple of Baal with
    worship of goat blood sacrifice. If you accept Ezekiel as future, then you accept the defilement
    of Jesus with post advent sacrifice of goat and bull blood in defiance of God

    REVELATION 5:9
    " JESUS was slaughtered and by his blood ransomed for God.."
    Praying and wishing for those images in Ezekiel in our future 1000 year reign
    would prepare such unbelievers for the lake of fire since goat blood is not salvation providing.
    Ezekiel 43:21
    'You shall also take the bull for the sin???? offering, and it shall be burned in the appointed place of the house, outside the sanctuary.

    Of course all believers in Christ's Israel will be restored , Those who remain unfaithful to Christ will be vanquished in
    Revelation 20:7 Gog and Magog that does not change. Ezekiel's book (with ancient Old Testament goat sacrifice etc)
    has nothing (apart from NEW JERUSALEM REVELATION 21:2-14, Revelation 22:1-7 similars )on future Christ 1000 years since Revelation also talks about the salvation and restoration
    of Christian Jews 12 tribe Israelites Revelation 14:1-2 They have Jesus's name
    and His Father's name written on their foreheads. Ezekiel was talking about saving Israel believers in a period of time before
    the birth of Christ, some Israelites were restored to the land though as under Zerubabel and Josiah Haggai 1:12-15
    Zechariah 6:9-14.


    ALL this is history and many have been deceived into seeing these goat blood temples as part of the FUTURE 1000 YEARS Millenial reign. Wrong.

    Ezekiel 43:18
    And He said to me, "Son of man, thus says the Lord GOD, 'These are the statutes for the altar on the day it is built, to offer burnt offerings on it and to sprinkle blood on it.

    Ezekiel 43:19
    'You shall give to the Levitical priests who are from the offspring of Zadok, who draw near to Me to minister to Me,' declares the Lord GOD, 'a young bull????? for a sin offering.

    Ezekiel 43:20
    'You shall take some of its blood and put it on its four horns??? and on the four corners of the ledge and on the border round about; thus you shall cleanse it and make atonement for it.

    Ezekiel 43:21
    'You shall also take the bull for the sin???? offering, and it shall be burned in the appointed place of the house, outside the sanctuary.

    Ezekiel 43:22
    'On the second day you shall offer a male goat without blemish for a sin offering, and they shall cleanse the altar as they cleansed it with the bull.

    Ezekiel 43:23
    'When you have finished cleansing it, you shall present a young bull????? without blemish and a ram without blemish from the flock. ?????

    Ezekiel 43:24
    'You shall present them before the LORD, and the priests shall throw salt on them, and they shall offer them up as a burnt offering to the LORD.

    Ezekiel 43:25
    'For seven days you shall prepare daily a goat for a sin offering??? JESUS??; also a young bull ???and a ram from the flock, without blemish, shall be prepared.

    Ezekiel 43:26
    'For seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it; so shall they consecrate it.

    Ezekiel 43:27
    'When they have completed the days, it shall be that on the eighth day and onward, the priests shall offer your burnt offerings?????? on the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you,' declares the Lord GOD."

    Ezekiel's events in verses 35-48 cannot be in the future , since it refers to practices and worship that is sacrilegious today. Ezek 38-39 Gog is simply a Satan type (all evil false Christians, unbelieving Jews , unbelieving pagans etc) so that is nothing new since judgement and punishment of all those against Christ are very common prophecies
    that are properly placed in Revelation 20:7, Mathew 25:31-46

    Ezekiel was given the vision BEFORE JUDAH and Jerusalem was destroyed

    see Ezekiel 1:2 In the 5th year of the exile of King Jehoiachin, word of the Lord came to Ezekiel.." Referring to 2 Chronicles 36:9-10, we see that King Jehoiachin was carried away with some Jews but King Zedekiah was installed by Nebuchadnezzar and HE RULED
    for 11 more years before Jerusalem fell and was destroyed, hence Ezekiel was in the land of the Chaldeans and received visions of the future destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar after 7 more years IN 2 Chronicles 36:11-14 and 15-20.

    hence Ezekiel speaks of the destruction of Jerusalem and then after that a vision

    of return BUT the nature of the Temple and other events in Ezekiel 40 -46 etc

    explain the timing and it is before the birth of Christ.

    As far as asking God to prove that He gathered Israel to that temple, any Temple that

    was built under God's instruction before Christ's birth, would fulfil Ezekiel 40-46 since

    that was a time of animal sacrifice, but today it is not possible to cleanse sin using goats for sin offering- blood though.

    Am I the only one amazed that the plethera of folks here looking for a future fulfillment of Ezekiels temple haven't even attempted to refute the assertions of the above posters?

    Come one now, certainly someone here wants to effort an explaination for this apparant "backwards redemption" that they are expecting, yes?

    Why? Not all futurists believe that Ezekiel contains any future fulfillment.
