The word orientation comes from the Latin root meaning to rise—the place of the rising sun. The east is a symbol of hope, of resurrection. Ancient Christian churches were oriented with the altar facing east.
In Ezekiel’s vision of the mystical temple, the doorway faces east, the glory of the Lord entering from the place of the new day. Feel the glory of the resurrection bathing you as you enter into the vision of the temple. Sense the presence of the altar in the depths of your soul as the very center of the temple-body of Jesus within whom you dwell.
All the details of these chapters have one purpose—immersion in the Holy. We become spiritually disoriented in life when we lose that deep, inner spiritual sense of God’s presence and holiness. The Lord offers it to you once again. Surrender to glory in these final weeks of the Easter Season.
Mondays are dedicated to the reading of the Hebrew Prophets.
In the Easter Season this year we read Ezekiel 33—48.
