EZEKIEL AND REVELATION PARALLEL
The Book Of Revelation Parallels Ezekiel Perfectly!
Ezekiel is the Old Testament version of Revelation. You start in Ezekiel with the chariot of Cherubims, and Christ seated atop on a sapphire throne. Christ is seen as golden or amber from his loins upward, and fire from his loins downward (see last few verses of Ezek. 1). And this is Christ all over again in Rev 1, where he is girt about the paps with gold and his legs like brass burning in a furnace!
And the throne of Rev 4 is identical to the throne He sits upon in Ezekiel. A rainbow is around it.
And even the sealed book is noted in Ezekiel 3! Written within and on the backside. And Ezekiel is told to eat the roll, while John eats the unsealed book in Revelation 10!
The book of Ezekiel follows Revelation all the way through… and deals with Jerusalem!! Ezekiel 16 calls Jerusalem the whore, just Like Revelation does in chapter 17 and 18. And Rev 18:24 matches Jesus words about Jerusalem in Matthew 23:35.
I do not have time to note every single parallel. The two books identify with each other all the way through! Even to Ezekiel 5 where the city is divided three ways by representation of Ezekiel’s hair that is 1/3 burnt, 1/3 cast to the wind and 1/3 part smitten with a knife. Remember reading of a city that is divided into three parts during an earthquake in Revelation?
Ezekiel ends with a huge temple with a river coming out of it, with trees on either side whose leaves are medicine for the nations and the fruit comes forth in her months. (Read Ezekiel 47). Revelation has one tree, with leaves and fruit in the precise same manner.
And the City in Revelation is one huge Most Holy place. It is a cube, just as the Oracle, or Most Holy place was in 1 Kings 6:20. And the river is there with the tree of life and the fruit.
Why many trees in Ezekiel 47, and only one tree in Rev 22:1? Because it is Christ. The tree has many branches. ,Psalm 1:3 speaks about saints as trees planted by the water (the river of life in Rev 22), whose leaf does not whither, and fruit is always there. Note that leaves and fruit were distinctly noted in Rev 22:1 and Ezek 47:12?
Its Christ and the church. Isaiah calls us trees of righteousness. This is analogous to John 15′s Vine and branches.
