Found this link which matches up Revelation 11 with Ezekiel 40-43 - I have not read it, yet...if anyone has comments/feedback, please share.
I got caught up in the line of flax in Ezekiel 40:3 - the only reference in Scripture phrased that way...and in the passages following the flax is not mentioned in the measurements. ??? The reed and/or measuring reed is used throughout the passages I covered today.
Commentaries and online search finally yielded an answer...the measuring line is a plumb line. Dictionary.com's definition:
1. a cord with a lead bob attached to one end, used to determine perpendicularity, the depth of water, etc.
I found this site while searching for a plumb line: www.gobible.org/study/163.php
What is the plumb line in our life? It should be the Word of God. If we do not spend time reading, studying and immersing ourselves in HIS Word, how will we know whether or not we are 'plumed' up?
