Ezra 6:13-22 CEV

THE TEMPLE IS COMPLETED AND THE PASSOVER IS CELEBRATED! 

God prospered His people through all the difficulties – what a testimony for those who are now struggling to build the city and walls through difficulties and what an encouragement for us today.

God accomplishes his decrees through the decrees of kings and through prophets and men like Ezra spurring on the people through God’s Word.

God is for Ezra’s generation just as he was for those who rebuilt the temple in the first generation and He is also for us His children and His church.

THE TEMPLE CONSTRUCTION  IS COMPLETED!

  • God gave the temple to his people to make a way to be cleansed of sin and be in relationship with a holy God who lives in the temple.
  • We no longer offer sacrifices. Jesus died to make a complete and full atonement for our sin, realising that a holy God is against our sin.

This testimony stokes the fires of hope that God will prosper the city-builders too and those who see His kingdom today too.

THERE IS JOY!

IN THE REST OF THE BOOK OF EZRA we see how God raised up Ezra and used him to bring a revival of understanding of the Word of God at this new exodus from Babylon to Jerusalem.  Exciting!
