10 As for you, Oh son of man, inform the house of Israel about the House, that they may feel humiliated because of their errors, and they must measure the pattern.
11 And if they actually feel humiliated because of all that they have done, the ground plan of the House, and its arrangement and its exits and its entryways, and all its ground plans and all its specifications, and all its ground plans and all its laws do you make known to them and write before their eyes, in order that they may observe all its ground plan and all its specifications and may actually carry them out.
12 This is the law of the House. On the top of the mountain its entire territory all around is something most holy. Look! This is the law of the House (Ezekiel 43).

A regular cubit (from elbow in latin) is the distance from your elbow to the tip of your finger which is around 18 inches.
The long cubit (used here see Ezekiel 40:5) is a regular cubit plus a span, which is the width of an outstretched hand - 9 notes on the piano - 9 inches, half a cubit. So a long cubit is 1.5 short cubits or 3 spans or 27 inches which is 2ft 3 inches. So a span is 1/3rd of a long cubit. 

EZEKIEL CHAPTER 40
1 In the 25th year of our exile, in the start of the year, on the 10th [day] of the month, in the 14th year after the city had been struck down, on this very same day the hand of Jehovah proved to be upon me, so that he brought me to that place.
2 In the visions of God he brought me to the land of Israel and gradually set me down upon a very high mountain, on which there was something like the structure of a city to the south.
3 And he proceeded to bring me there, and, look! there was a man. His appearance was like the appearance of copper, and there was a flax cord in his hand, and a measuring reed, and he was standing in the gate.
4 And the man began to speak to me: Son of man, see with your eyes, and with your ears hear, and set your heart upon all that I am showing you, because for the purpose of [my] showing you, you have been brought here. Tell everything that you are seeing to the house of Israel.
5 And, look! there was a wall outside the house all round about. And in the hand of the man there was the measuring reed of 6 cubits, by a cubit and a handbreadth. And he began to measure the breadth of the thing built, one reed; and the height, one reed.
6 Then he came to the gate, the front of which is toward the east, and went up by its steps. And he began to measure the threshold of the gate, one reed in width [width here means the shorter dimension], and the other threshold [the hole in the outer courtyard wall where the east outer gate is], one reed in width.
7 And the guard chamber was one reed in length and one reed in width, and between the guard chambers there were 5 cubits; and the threshold of the gate from the side of the porch of the gate to/from the house was one reed [from the border of the last guard chamber to the inside boundary of the porch of the gate, i.e. to the gate itself for the outer gates. But the wording is deliberately ambiguous so as to allow a different inverted interpretation for the inner gates which is: Measuring from the porch-of-the-gate side of the gate itself (which gate is not in fact in the porch of the gate but 6 cubits from the outer boundary of the inner courtyard wall!) to the border of the last guard chamber]
8 And he proceeded to measure the porch of the gate toward the interior, one reed [this plus the 6 cubit threshold of the porch of the gate plus the 1 cubit border is the 13 cubit length of the 'gate' as opposed to the entrance of the gate which is 6+½+6+½+5+½+6+½+5+½+6+½=37 cubits long].
9 So he measured the porch of the gate, 8 cubits; and its side pillars, 2 cubits; and the porch of the gate was toward the interior [of the courtyard].
10 And the guard chambers of the gate toward the east were 3 on this side and 3 on that side. The 3 of them were of one measurement, and the side pillars were of one measurement, on this side and on that side.
11 Then he measured the width of the entrance of the gate, 10 cubits; the length of the gate, 13 cubits [from the last guard chamber to the side pillar of the Porch? And the length of the gate itself?].
12 And the border-area in front of the guard chambers was one cubit, and there was a border-area of one cubit on [one] side. And the guard chamber was 6 cubits on this side and 6 cubits on that side [next to the aforementioned side borders].
13 And he went on to measure the gate from the roof of the [one] guard chamber to the roof of the other, a width of 25 cubits [this is internal. The roof of the guard chamber is not the roof of the gate]; entrance was across from entrance.
14 Then he made?? pillars of 60 cubits, even/and unto the pillar of the courtyard, surrounding the gate all around [actually a 60 long-cubit (135 foot) pillar would need to be angelically fabricated at 1 or 2 cubits width!!].
15 And by the front of the gate of the entryway [to] by the front of the porch of the inner gate was 50 cubits.
16 And there were windows shuttered [their shutters are open since they are not said to be covered] against the guard chambers and against their pillars [of verse 10] to their faces towards the gate [i.e. along the axis of the gate, rather than across to the opposite guard chamber] all around [both sides of the chambers], and likewise to/for the porches [shuttered windows adjacent to the pillars at the front of the chambers and in the porch wall itself - see verse 29]. And the windows were all around to the faces/walls of them [not adjacent to their pillars i.e. adjacent to the gate wall], and on the pillars there were palm-tree figures.
17 And he gradually brought me into the outer courtyard, and, look! there were dining rooms, and a pavement made for the courtyard surrounding all around. There were 30 dining rooms upon the pavement [in that particular dining room block on one side of one of the 3 outer gates. So there are 180 dining rooms in all in the outer courtyard, in 6 blocks, one block on each side of the 3 outer gates. This is the same number that are in the inner courtyard].
18 And the pavement at the side of the gates was exactly as the length of the gates [50 cubits] -- the lower pavement [8 steps below the inner gates and inner courtyard].
19 And he proceeded to measure the width from in front of the lower gate to the front of the inner courtyard [which is the porch of the inverted inner gate opposite]. Outside it was 100 cubits, to the east and to the north.
20 And the outer courtyard had a gate the front of which was toward the north. He measured its length and its width.
21 And its guard chambers were 3 on this side and 3 on that side. And its own side pillars and its own porch proved to be according to the measurement of the first gate. 50 cubits was its length, and its width was 25 in cubits [all measurements are internal].
22 And its windows and its porches/arches/porticos and its palm-tree figures were of the same measurement as those of the gate the front of which is toward the east. And by 7 steps people could go up into it, and its porches/arches [were] before them.
23 And the gate of the inner courtyard was opposite the gate to the north; also [one] to the east. And he proceeded to measure from gate to gate 100 cubits.
24 And he gradually brought me toward the south, and, look! there was a gate toward the south, and he measured its side pillars and its porch as of the same measurements as these.
25 And it and its porch had windows/openings all around, like these windows/openings [the windows of the guard chambers of the East outer gate and the windows of the porch of the East outer gate mentioned above]. 50 cubits was the length, and the breadth was 25 cubits.
26 And there were 7 steps for going up to it, and its porch was to their front. And it had palm-tree figures, one on this side and one on that side on its side pillars.
27 And the inner courtyard had a gate toward the south. And he measured from gate to gate toward the south 100 cubits.
28 And he gradually brought me into the inner courtyard by the gate of the south. And he proceeded to measure the gate of the south as of the same measurements as these.
29 And its guard chambers and its side pillars and its porch were of the same measurements as these. And it and its porch had windows round about. 50 cubits was the length, and the width was 25 cubits.
30 And there were porches all around/on either side; the length was 25 cubits, and the width 5 cubits.
31 And its porch was to the outer courtyard, and palm-tree figures were on its side pillars, and its ascent was 8 steps.
32 And he gradually brought me into the inner courtyard by way of the east, and he proceeded to measure the gate as of the same measurements as these.
33 And its guard chambers and its side pillars and its porch were of the same measurements as these, and it and its porch had windows all around. The length was 50 cubits, and the width 25 cubits.
34 And its porch was toward the outer courtyard, and palm-tree figures were on its side pillars on this side and on that side. And its ascent was 8 steps.
35 And he proceeded to bring me into the north gate, and he measured, with the same measurements as these,
36 its guard chambers, its side pillars and its porch. And it had windows all around. The length was 50 cubits, and the width 25 cubits.
37 And to the outer courtyard were its side pillars, and palm-tree figures were on its side pillars on this side and on that side. And its ascent was 8 steps.
38 And a room and opening/entrance of her [was] at the side pillars [to] the gates [the pillars of the two gates which open into the inner courtyard. So these rooms are in the space between the 3rd guard chamber and the final wall of the North inner gate]. There it was that they would rinse the whole burnt offering.
39 And in the porch of the gate there were 2 tables on this side and 2 tables on that side, for slaughtering upon them the whole burnt offering and the sin offering and the guilt offering.
40 And to the side from outwards, as one goes up to the entrance of the north gate, there were 2 tables. And to the other side which [leads] to the porch of the gate were 2 tables.
41 There were 4 tables over here and 4 tables over there at the side of the gate -- 8 tables [the same number of tables as there are of steps - a table for a step. One loses an inner animal at each step?], upon which they would do the slaughtering.
42 And the 4 tables for the whole burnt offering were of hewn stone. The length was one cubit and a half, and the width one cubit and a half, and the height one cubit. Upon them they would also deposit the implements with which they would slaughter the whole burnt offering and the sacrifice [symbolically the candidate dies to his animalistic behaviour and is baptised into the FRC in the rinsing chamber immediately before the opening gates].
43 And the ledges for setting down things were of one handbreadth, firmly fixed on the interior, all around; and upon the tables [they would deposit] the flesh of the gift offering.
44 And on the outside of the inner gate there were the dining rooms of the singers, in the inner courtyard, which is on the side of the north gate. And their faces [idiomatic plural] [were] towards the south. There was one on the side of the east gate. The faces [were] towards the north.
45 And he proceeded to speak to me: This one, the dining room the front of which is toward the south, is for the priests who are taking care of the obligation of the house.
46 And the dining room the front of which is toward the north is for the priests who are taking care of the obligation of the altar. They are the sons of Zadok, who, from the sons of Levi, are approaching Jehovah to minister to him.
47 And he went measuring the [inner] courtyard. The length was 100 cubits, and the width 100 cubits [both internal measurements], foursquare. And the altar was before the house.
48 And he proceeded to bring me into the porch of the house, and he went measuring those [pillars/sides] of the porch, 5 cubits on this side and 5 cubits on that side. And the width of the gate was 3 cubits on this side and 3 cubits on that side.
49 The length of the porch was 20 cubits, and the width 11 cubits. And in steps was how they would go up to it [by steps all along the eastern edge of the 20 long x100 wide eastern separated zone in front of the Porch of the sanctuary. These steps must have a rise of 5 cubits in order to give the same protection as is afforded by the 5 cubit height of the wall of the priests either side of the northern and southern separated areas which are dead zones. And there are only 5 cubits in length to fit these steps into due to the North and South inner gates. So perhaps 10 steps of 1/2 cubit by 1/2 cubit]. And there were posts [ammud] unto the pillars [ayil], one over here and one over there.



EZEKIEL CHAPTER 41
1 And he proceeded to bring me into the temple, and he went measuring the [side] pillars, 6 cubits being the width over here and 6 cubits the width over there, the [side border] width of the tent/dwelling [along its 60 cubit length] [everywhere else in the account the sanctuary is called a house not a tent. A tent has cloth walls. The sanctuary is not said to have walls. Only pillars. The back and the roof appear to be made of cloth].
2 And the width of the entrance was 10 cubits, and the sides [which are called pillars in verse 1. So a side is a pillar and a pillar is a side] of the entrance were 5 cubits over here and 5 cubits over there. And he went measuring its length, 40 cubits; and the width, 20 cubits.
3 And he went inside and proceeded to measure the side pillar of the entrance [inside - to the most holy], 2 cubits; and the entrance/opening/door, 6 cubits [height]; and the width of the entrance was 7 cubits [length is not given because it has no length being a curtain. The other two dimensions are given to emphasise the absence of the third].
4 And he went measuring its length, 20 cubits; and [its] width, 20 cubits, before the temple. Then he said to me: This is the Most Holy.
5 And he proceeded to measure the wall of the house, 6 cubits [the wall of the inner courtyard around the house - 6 cubits thick and 6 cubits high]. And the width of the side chamber was 4 cubits, round about; all around the house it was, round about [both whole sides].
6 And the side chambers were side chamber upon side chamber, 3 [stories], and for 30 times [making 90 chambers on each side of the sanctuary for a total of 180 chambers]; and they were entering into the wall which [belonged to] the house [the inner courtyard wall], that is, the side chambers all around, in order that they might be held in, but they were not held in, in the wall of the house [the wall of the sanctuary itself. The 6 cubit pillar of verse 1 has become a wall! One does not stick a dining room or for that matter a toilet on to the side of the holy or the most holy - holy means separated to God - not joined to anything! These priestly dining rooms are joined on the inner courtyard wall, in the inner courtyard].
7 And there was a widening out and turning around upward and upward to the side chambers, for the winding passage of the house was upward and upward all around the house. Therefore there was a widening to the house upward, like this [i.e. in the following order] lowest [story] until to the uppermost [story], and/then to the middle [story] [the lowest story is 4 cubits wide with a 6 cubit wide foundation and is 6 cubits high, the height of the inner courtyard wall. The middle story uses the 6x6 wall to gain another 6 cubits in width but has a 2 cubit gallery at the front and so is 8 cubits in width from the back of the wall and 6 cubits in height with a 2 cubit gallery. The top story is therefore 6 cubits in width with a 2 cubit gallery at the front] 
8 And I saw that there was a high platform for the house all around [the 120x100 inner courtyard under the house is elevated above the 80x100 lower inner courtyard to the extent of the steps to the porch]. As regards the foundations of the side chambers, there was a full reed of 6 cubits to the joining [with the inner courtyard wall which is the wall 'of' the house].
9 The width of the wall that belonged to the side chamber, to the outside, was 5 cubits. And there was a space left open [by] the construction of the side chambers that belonged to the house [before that wall].
10 And between the dining rooms the width was 20 cubits round about the house, all around [between the dining room wall and the sanctuary].
11 And the entrance of the side chamber was to the space left open, one entrance being toward the north and one entrance to the south; and the width of the area of the space left open was 5 cubits, all around.
12 And the building that was before the separated area, the side [of which] was toward the west, was 70 cubits wide. And the wall of the building was 5 cubits in width, it being all around; and its length was 90 cubits.
13 And he measured the house, 100 cubits in length; and the separated area and the building and its walls, 100 cubits in length.
14 And the width of the front of the house and the separated area to the east was 100 cubits [100 cubits wide and 20 cubits long in front of the porch of the sanctuary].
15 And he measured the length of the building before the separated area that was behind it and its galleries on this side and on that side, 100 cubits [from the back of the sanctuary to the front of the side galleries/priests dining rooms which are therefore 100 cubits long ending at the edge of the eastern separated zone]. Also the temple [and] the inner place and the porches of the courtyard [this must be the outer courtyard since the inner courtyard has only one porch, namely that to the sanctuary];
16 the thresholds [to gates all 6 of which are in the outer courtyard], and the windows [hallon] the shuttered [ones] [atam] [windows have shutters which can be closed], and the galleries were round about the 3 of them [The 3 Outer Gates. So round about can mean on either side]. In front of the threshold there was panelling of wood all around, and [from] the floor up to the windows [hallon]; and the windows were covered [mkasseh] ones [the shutters were closed as opposed to the guard chamber shutters which were open].
17 To above the entrance and as far as the inner house and on the outside and upon the whole wall all around, on the inner [house] and on the outside, there were measurements [which the reader must deduce from other info in this account] [which in the greater meaning give time periods],
18 And [in a further detail] carved cherubs and palm-tree figures, with a palm-tree figure between a cherub and a cherub, and the cherub had 2 faces.
19 And the face of a man was toward the palm-tree figure on this side, and the face of a maned young lion was toward the palm-tree figure on that side, they being carved on the whole house all around [on the internal solid parts of the temple].
20 From the floor to above the entrance there were carved cherubs and palm-tree figures, [on] the wall of the temple.
21 As for the temple, the doorpost was squared [and therefore 2½ cubits square since the entrance way was 11 cubits wide and the two doors were 3 cubits each]; and [in] front of the holy place there was an appearance like the [following] appearance:
22 the wooden altar was 3 cubits high, and its length was 2 cubits, and it had its corner posts. And its length and its walls were of wood. And he proceeded to speak to me: This is the table that is before Jehovah.
23 And the temple and the holy place had 2 doors.
24 And 2 door leaves belonged to the doors, the 2 being turnable. One door had 2 door leaves, and the other had 2 door leaves [from an engineering standpoint the best place to put hinges or for that matter deadlocks on a door is one third of the way up that door and two thirds of the way up. All the 60 cubits high doors in the temple will have two hinges one third and two thirds of the way up each door].
25 And there were made upon them, upon the doors of the temple, cherubs and palm-tree figures, like those made for the walls, and there was a canopy/thickness of wood [panelling] over the front of the porch outside [From 20? cubits to 60 cubits so that the porch is 20 x 20 x 20 external below the panelling].
26 And there were shuttered windows and palm-tree figures over here and over there along the sides of the porch and [the sides of] the side chambers of the house [the dining rooms of the singers] and [the sides of] the canopies/thicknesses/panellings [plural] [going up from 20 to 60 cubits on the sides of the porch next to the canopy] [We think the second canopy is on the back of the temple from 20 cubits high to 60 cubits. This would be symmetric with the front and make a most holy that was 20 x 20 x 20 up to the canopy. The roof of the porch and the temple and the back wall of the most holy is one giant tent cloth - going inside the canopy at the back. The definition of a tent requires a cloth roof and at least one cloth wall]

EZEKIEL CHAPTER 42 (Green's Literal) 
1  And he brought me out into the outer court northward. And he brought me into the room that was across from the separate area, which was in front of the building to the north.
2 To the face of its length was a hundred cubits, toward the north door, and fifty cubits wide.
3 Across from the twenty cubits which were to the inner court, and opposite the pavement which was to the outer court, was gallery on the face of gallery, in three stories.
4 And before the rooms was a walk ten cubits wide, to the inside, a way of one cubit. And their doors were toward the north.
5 And the upper rooms were shorter, for the galleries used up more space than the lower and middle ones in the building.
6 For they were in three stories, and there were no columns to them like the columns of the courts. So the third was made narrower than the lower and middle stories from the ground.
7 And the wall that was outside near the rooms the way of the outer court, on the face of the rooms, its length was fifty cubits.
8 For the length of the rooms that were in the outer court was fifty cubits. And, behold, in the face of the temple was a hundred cubits.
9 And under these rooms was the entrance on the east side as one goes into them from the outer court.
10 In the width of the wall of the court eastward, to the face of the separate area, and to the face of the building were rooms.
11 And the way before them looked like the rooms which were northward, as their length, so their width. And all their exits were as their patterns and as their doors.
12 And as the doors of the rooms that were southward, there was a door in the head of the way, the way directly in the face of the wall, the way of the east, as one enters them.
13 And he said to me, The north rooms, the south rooms which are to the face of the separate area, they are holy rooms, there where the priests shall eat, who approach to Jehovah, the holiest of the holy things. There they shall lay the holiest of the holy things, even the food offering and the sin offering, and the guilt offering. For the place is holy.
14 When the priests enter, then they shall not go out of the sanctuary into the outer court, but they shall lay their clothes there by which they minister by them, for they are holy. They shall put on other clothes and shall approach to that which is for the people.
15 And he finished measuring the inner house. And he brought me forth the way of the gate whose face is eastward, and measured all around.
16 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed, all around.
17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed, all around.
18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
19 He turned to the west side, measuring five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
20 By the four sides he measured it. It had a wall all around, five hundred reeds long, and five hundred wide, to separate between the holy and the common.

EZEKIEL CHAPTER 42 (Young's Literal)
1 And he bringeth me forth unto the outer court, the way northward, and he bringeth me in unto the chamber that {is} over-against/adjacent to the separate place [of the outer courtyard. This could be the whole outer courtyard other than the lower pavement or it could be the elevated area outside the inner courtyard but 8 steps of the inner gates higher. The latter is more likely], and that {is} over-against/adjacent to the building at the north [The North outer gate].
2 At the front of the length {is} 100 cubits {at} the north opening [100 cubits is total but split into 50 cubits either side of the North outer gate - see verse 8], and the breadth fifty cubits [from the outer courtyard wall inwards].
3 Over-against/adjacent to the twenty {cubits} that are to the inner court [the inner courtyard separated zone], and over-against/adjacent to the pavement that {is} to the outer court [the outer courtyard lower pavement], {is} gallery over-against/adjacent to vertically/upon gallery, in the three {storeys}.
4 And at the front of the chambers {is} a walk of ten cubits in breadth unto the inner part, a way of one cubit, and [unto] their openings at the north [Dining room doors, then a 10 cubit walkway, then a one cubit walkway, then a wall. These outer courtyard dining rooms are isomorphic to the inner courtyard dining rooms].
5 And the upper chambers {are} short, for the galleries used more in these, than the lower, and than the middle one, of the building;
6 for they {are} threefold, and they have no pillars as the pillars of the court, therefore it hath been kept back [they are staggered backwards from the front with balconies. A gallery without pillars and a canopy is a balcony] -- more than the lower and than the middle one -- from the ground.
7 As to the wall that {is} at the outside, over-against/adjacent to the chambers, [over-against/adjacent to] the way of the outer-court at the front of the chambers, its length {is} fifty cubits [to stop those on the 1 cubit inner walkway straying into the outer courtyard separated zone. After the 50 cubit long 1cubit wide inner walkway one has the whole 50 cubit pavement so one would not by accident stray into the outer courtyard separated zone];
8 for the length of the chambers that {are} to the outer court {is} 50 cubits, and/whereas {the length} of those on the front of the temple [in the inner courtyard] {is} a hundred cubits.
9 And under these chambers {is} the entrance from the east, in one's going into them from the outer court [and from the West in ones going into them from the North outer gate].
10 In the breadth of the wall of the court eastward, unto the front of the separate place [the separated zone of the outer courtyard], and unto the front of/before the building [of the East outer gate], {are} chambers.
11 And the way before them {is} as the appearance of the chambers that {are} northward, like their length like their breadth and all their outlets, and like their fashions, and like to their openings.
12 And according to the openings of the chambers that {are} southward {is} an opening at the head of the way, the way directly in the front of the wall eastward in entering them [So these South outer gate dining rooms are entered from the East and so are on the East of the South outer Gate which is a right turn after going through the gate rather than a left turn in the case of the North outer gate dining rooms. So both gates have dining rooms on both sides]
13 And he saith unto me, 'The north chambers, the south chambers, that {are} at the front of the separate place, they {are} holy chambers, where the priests (who {are} near to Jehovah) eat the most holy things, there they place the most holy things, and the present, and the sin-offering, and the guilt-offering, for the place {is} holy.
14 In the priests' going in, they come not out from the sanctuary unto the outer court, and there they place their garments with which they minister, for they {are} holy, and have put on other garments, and have drawn near unto that which {is} for the people.'
15 And he hath finished the measurements of the inner house, and hath brought me forth the way of the gate whose front {is} eastward, and he hath measured it all round about.
16 He hath measured the east side with the measuring-reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring-reed round about.
17 He hath measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.
18 The south side he hath measured, five hundred reeds, with the measuring-reed.
19 He hath turned round unto the west side, he hath measured five hundred reeds with the measuring-reed.
20 At the four sides he hath measured it, a wall {is} to it all round about, the length five hundred, and the breadth five hundred, to separate between the holy and the profane place.


EZEKIEL CHAPTER 42 (NWT)
1 And he gradually brought me forth to the outer courtyard by the way toward the north. And he proceeded to bring me to the dining-room [block] that was in front of the separated area [of the outer courtyard] and that was in front of the building to the north.
2 Before the length of 100 cubits there was the north entrance, and the width was 50 cubits.
3 In front of the 20 [cubits] [of the separated zone] that belonged to the inner courtyard and in front of the pavement that belonged to the outer courtyard there was gallery opposite gallery in 3 [stories].
4 And before the dining rooms there was a walkway 10 cubits in width to the inside, a way of one cubit, and their entrances were to the north.
5 And as for the dining rooms, the uppermost ones were shorter, for the galleries took away from them, more than the lowest ones and than the middle ones, as regards [the] building.
6 For they were in 3 stories, and they had no pillars like the pillars of the courtyards. That is why more room was taken away than from the lowest ones and from the middle ones from the floor.
7 And the stone wall that was outside was close by the dining rooms toward the outer courtyard before the [other] dining rooms. Its length was 50 cubits.
8 For the length of the dining rooms that were toward the outer courtyard was 50 cubits, and, look! before the temple it was 100 cubits.
9 And from below these dining rooms the entryway was to the east, when one comes in to them from the outer courtyard.
10 In the width of the stone wall of the courtyard toward the east, before the separated area and before the building, there were dining rooms.
11 And there was a way before them like the appearance of the dining rooms that were toward the north, so their length was [and] so their width was; and all their exits [were alike], and their plans alike and their entrances alike.
12 And like the entrances of the dining rooms that were toward the south was the entrance at the head of the way, the way before the corresponding stone wall toward the east, when one comes in to them.
13 And he proceeded to say to me: The dining rooms of the north [and] the dining rooms of the south that are before the separated area, they are the holy dining rooms, where the priests who are approaching Jehovah eat the most holy things. There they deposit the most holy things and the grain offering and the sin offering and the guilt offering, because the place is holy.
14 When they, the priests, have come in, they will not also go out from the holy place to the outer courtyard, but there they will deposit their garments in which they customarily minister, for they are something holy. They will clothe themselves with other garments, and must approach to what has to do with the people.
15 And he finished the measurements of the inner house, and he brought me out by the way of the gate the front of which was toward the east, and he measured it all around.
16 He measured the eastern side with the measuring reed. It was 500 reeds, by the measuring reed, round about.
17 He measured the northern side, 500 reeds, by the measuring reed, round about.
18 The southern side he measured, 500 reeds, by the measuring reed.
19 He went around to the western side. He measured 500 reeds, by the measuring reed.
20 For the 4 sides he measured it. It had a wall all around, with a length of 500 [reeds] and a width of 500 [reeds], to make a division between what is holy and what is profane.



EZEKIEL CHAPTER 43
1 Then he made me go to the gate, the gate that is facing toward the east.
2 And, look! the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the direction of the east, and his voice was like the voice of vast waters; and the earth itself shone because of his glory.
3 And it was like the appearance of the vision that I had seen, like the vision that I saw when I came to bring the city to ruin; and there were appearances like the appearance that I saw by the river Chebar, and I went falling upon my face.
4 And the glory of Jehovah itself came into the House by way of the gate the front of which was toward the east.
5 And a spirit proceeded to raise me up and bring me into the inner courtyard, and, look! the House had become full of the glory of Jehovah.
6 And I began to hear someone speaking to me out of the House, and [the] man himself had come to be standing beside me.
7 And He went on to say to me: Son of man, [this is] the place of my throne and the place of the soles of my feet, where I shall reside in the midst of the sons of Israel to time indefinite; and no more will they, the house of Israel, defile my holy name, they and their kings, by their fornication and by the carcasses of their kings at their death,
8 by their putting their threshold with my threshold and their doorpost beside my doorpost, with the wall between me and them. And they defiled my holy name by their detestable things that they did, so that I went exterminating them in my anger.
9 Now let them remove their fornication and the carcasses of their kings far from me, and I shall certainly reside in the midst of them to time indefinite.
10 As for you, Oh son of man, inform the house of Israel about the House, that they may feel humiliated because of their errors, and they must measure the pattern.
11 And if they actually feel humiliated because of all that they have done [in not knowing or understanding or following the plan for them], the ground plan of the House, and its arrangement and its exits [The Western Building and the South inner gate for sons of the FRC and the North inner gate for sons of the CRC and ARC] and its entryways, and all its ground plans and all its specifications, and all its ground plans and all its laws do you make known to them and write before their eyes, in order that they may observe all its ground plan and all its specifications and may actually carry them out.
12 This is the law of the House [the dimensions of the house stipulated above are the law of the house because they symbolically represent the regulations for the heavenly temple]. On the top of the mountain its entire territory all around is something most holy. Look! This is the law of the House.
13 And these are the measurements of the altar in cubits, a cubit being a cubit and a handbreadth. And [its] bottom is a cubit [high]. And a cubit is the width [the width over and above the 12x12 cubits of the hearth, which it surrounds]. And its border is upon its lip round about, one span [1/3 of a long cubit, the one used in this account]. And this is the base of the altar.
14 And from the bottom, the ground, to the lower surrounding ledge there are 2 cubits, and the width is one cubit. And from the small surrounding ledge [thin, small in height, not in width] to the big surrounding ledge there are 4 cubits [it will be from the bottom of the small/thin surrounding ledge but it matters not much because said ledge is thin for utensils presumably. 2 cubits high is 4ft 6", a good height for a kitchen shelf! It could in theory be as thin as 2¼ inches in height which is one tenth of a cubit. It will be to the top of the thick surrounding ledge, which is the top of the altar. So the altar is 6 cubits high. The only thing with a 7 in it is the most holy!], and [its] width is a cubit [the width over and above the 12x12 cubits of the hearth, which it surrounds] .
15 And the altar hearth is 4 cubits [deep from the top of the altar], and out from the altar hearth and upward there are the 4 horns.
16 And the altar hearth is 12 [cubits] in length, with 12 [cubits] of width, squared on its 4 sides.
17 And the surrounding ledge [the large/thick surrounding ledge, the upper surrounding ledge at the top of the altar, strong enough to support animal carcasses] is 14 [cubits] in length, with 14 [cubits] of width, on its 4 sides; and the border surrounding it is half a cubit, and its bottom is a cubit round about [So the border fades to nothing at the lower edge of the upper surrounding ledge but extends to ½ a cubit all round either in the middle of the ledge of at the top. So this border is either triangular of hemispherical - Hemispherical would make it easier to slide a carcass onto the ledge]. And its steps are facing east.
18 And he proceeded to say to me: Son of man, this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, 'These are the statutes of the altar on the day of its being made, in order to offer upon it whole burnt offerings and to sprinkle upon it blood.'
19 'And you must give to the Levitical priests, who are of the offspring of Zadok, the ones approaching me,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah, 'to minister to me, a young bull, the son of [the] herd, as a sin offering.
20 And you must take some of its blood and put [it] upon its 4 horns and upon the 4 corners of the surrounding ledge and upon the border round about and purify it from sin and make atonement for it.
21 And you must take the young bull, the sin offering, and one must burn it in the appointed place of the House, outside the sanctuary.
22 And on the second day you will bring near a buck of the goats, a sound one, as a sin offering; and they must purify the altar from sin the same as they purified [it] from sin with the young bull.'
23 'On your making an end of the purifying from sin you will bring near a young bull, the son of [the] herd, a sound one, and a ram from the flock, a sound one.
24 And you must bring them near before Jehovah, and the priests must throw salt upon them and offer them up as a whole burnt offering to Jehovah.
25 For 7 days you will render up a he-goat as a sin offering for the day; and a young bull, the son of [the] herd, and a ram out of the flock, perfect ones, they will render up.
26 For 7 days they will make atonement for the altar [which therefore must have sinned so as to be separated from God. And so consists of humans beings not stone. Therefore this is not a physical temple], and they must cleanse it and install it.
27 And they will complete the days. And it must occur on the 8th day and from then on that the priests will render upon the altar the whole burnt offerings of you people and your communion sacrifices; and I shall certainly find pleasure in you,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.



EZEKIEL CHAPTER 44
1 And he proceeded to bring me back by way of the gate of the sanctuary, the outer one facing east, and it was shut.
2 Then Jehovah said to me: As regards this gate, shut is how it will continue. It will not be opened, and no mere man will come in by it; for Jehovah himself, the God of Israel, has come in by it, and it must continue shut [once the heavenly call to be a saint has ended, the gate is shut to outsiders for the rest of the lifetime of the church].
3 However, the chieftain/prince/ruler/leader [potential saints from within the temple can still enter into the gate from the inside through the porch and thereby enter into the JAC coming out again] -- as chieftain he himself will sit in it, in order to eat bread before Jehovah [in the dining room wings to the gate]. By way of the porch of the gate he will come in, and by way of it he will go out [to enter into the covenant test of that gate without leaving the temple and to enter into the dining room wings through the porch of the gate].
4 And he now brought me by way of the north gate to before the House, that I might see, and, look! the glory of Jehovah had filled the house of Jehovah. And I went falling on my face.
5 Then Jehovah said to me: Son of man, set your heart and see with your eyes, and with your ears hear all that I am speaking with you regarding all the statutes of the house of Jehovah and regarding all its laws, and you must set your heart upon the entryway of the House with all the exits of the sanctuary.
6 And you must say to Rebelliousness, to the house of Israel, 'This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: That is enough of you because of all your detestable things, Oh house of Israel,
7 when you bring in the foreigners uncircumcised in heart and uncircumcised in flesh, in order to come to be in my sanctuary so as to profane it, even my house; when you present my bread, fat and blood, while they keep breaking my covenant on account of all your detestable things.
8 Neither have you taken care of the obligation of my holy things, nor would you post [others] as caretakers of my obligation in my sanctuary for yourselves.'
9 'This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: No foreigner, uncircumcised in heart and uncircumcised in flesh [if have neither a spirit baptism nor a fleshly/water baptism you are denied. But if you have one of them you can enter by the appropriate gate], may come into my sanctuary, that is, any foreigner who is in the midst of the sons of Israel.'
10 'But as for the Levites who got far away from me when Israel, who wandered away from me, wandered after their dungy idols, they must also bear their error.
11 And in my sanctuary they must become ministers at posts of oversight over the gates of the House and ministers at the House. They themselves will slaughter the whole burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they themselves will stand before them to minister to them.
12 For the reason that they kept ministering to them before their dungy idols and became to the house of Israel a stumbling block into error, that is why I have raised my hand against them,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah, 'and they must bear their error.
13 And they will not approach to me to act as priest to me or to approach to any holy things of mine, to the most holy things, and they must bear their humiliation and their detestable things that they did.
14 And I shall certainly make them caretakers of the obligation of the House, as regards all its service and as regards all that should be done in it.'
15 'And as for the Levitical priests, the sons of Zadok, who took care of the obligation of my sanctuary when the sons of Israel wandered away from me, they themselves will come near to me to minister to me, and they must stand before me to present to me fat and the blood,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah [2 forms of priesthood are here defined. The inferior form (for ex JWs who have been PO or higher and some Bethelite equivalent) slaughters animals, i.e. evangelises to animalistic people and kills the animalistic part of their spirit baptising them into spiritual beings. It also ministers to people as servants in the congregation i.e. ministerial servants or elders, but no higher. We do not think they can can be the angel to the congregation, the PO. They are priests of the second law]
16 'They are the ones that will come into my sanctuary, and they themselves will come near to my table to minister to me, and they must take care of the obligation to me [We are priests of the first law].
17 'And it must occur that when they come into the gates of the inner courtyard, linen garments they should wear, and no wool should come up on them when they minister in the gates of the inner courtyard and inside.
18 Linen headdresses are what should prove to be on their head, and linen drawers are what should prove to be upon their hips. They should not gird themselves with [what causes] sweat.
19 And when they go forth to the outer courtyard, [even] to the outer courtyard to the people, they should strip off their garments in which they were ministering, and they must deposit them in the holy dining rooms and put on other garments, that they may not sanctify the people with their garments.
20 And their head they should not shave, and the hair of the head they should not wear loose. They should by all means clip [the hair of] their heads.
21 And no wine should any priests drink when they come into the inner courtyard.
22 And no widow or divorced woman should they take for themselves as wives, but virgins of the offspring of the house of Israel or the widow who happens to be the widow of a priest they may take.'
23 'And my people they should instruct in the difference between a holy thing and a profane thing; and the difference between what is unclean and what is clean they should cause them to know.
24 And in a legal case they themselves should stand in order to judge; with my judicial decisions they must also judge it. And my laws and my statutes in regard to all my festal seasons they should keep, and my sabbaths they should sanctify.
25 And to a dead person of mankind he should not come in so as to become unclean, but for father or for mother or for son or for daughter [or] for brother or for a sister that has not become a husband's they may make themselves unclean.
26 And after his purification, 7 days they should number off for him.
27 And on the day of his coming into the holy place, into the inner courtyard, to minister in the holy place, he should present his sin offering,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.
28 'And it must become theirs as an inheritance: I am their inheritance. And no possession should you people give them in Israel: I am their possession.
29 The grain offering and the sin offering and the guilt offering -- they are the ones who will eat them. And every devoted thing in Israel -- theirs it will become.
30 And the first of all the first ripe fruits of everything and every contribution of everything out of all your contributions -- to the priests it will come to belong; and the firstfruits of your coarse meals you should give to the priest, in order to cause a blessing to rest upon your house.
31 No body [already] dead and no creature torn to pieces of the flying creatures or of the beasts should the priests eat.'



EZEKIEL CHAPTER 45
1 'And when you people allot the land as an inheritance, you should offer a contribution to Jehovah, a holy portion out of the land; as to length, 25,000 [cubits] in length, and as to width, 10,000. It will be a holy portion in all its boundaries round about.
2 From this there will prove to be for the holy place 500 by 500 , it being made square round about; and 50 cubits it will have as pasture ground on each side.
3 And out of this measurement you should measure the length of 25,000 and the width of 10,000, and in it the sanctuary will come to be, something most holy.
4 As a holy portion out of the land it will come to be for the priests themselves, the ministers of the sanctuary, those approaching to minister to Jehovah. And for them it must prove to be a place for houses, and a sacred place for the sanctuary.
5 'There will be 25,000 in length and 10,000 in width. It will become the Levites', the ministers of the house. As a possession they will have 20 dining rooms.
6 'And as the possession of the city, you people will give 5,000 in width and a length of 25,000, exactly as the holy contribution. To all the house of Israel it will come to belong.
7 'And for the chieftain there will be on this side and on that side of the holy contribution and of the possession of the city, beside the holy contribution and beside the possession of the city, something on the west side westward and something on the east side eastward. And the length will be exactly as one of the shares, from the western boundary to the eastern boundary.
8 As regards the land, it will become his as a possession in Israel. And no more will my chieftains maltreat my people, and the land they will give to the house of Israel with respect to their tribes.'
9 This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, 'That is enough of you, Oh chieftains of Israel!' 'Remove the violence and the despoiling, and do justice and righteousness themselves. Lift your expropriations off my people,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.
10 'Accurate scales and an accurate ephah and an accurate bath measure you men should come to have.
11 As regards the ephah and the bath measure, there should come to be but one fixed amount, for the bath to carry a 10th of a homer and the 10th of the homer an ephah; with reference to the homer, its required amount should prove to be.
12 And the shekel is 20 gerahs. 20 shekels, 25 shekels, 15 shekels should prove to be the maneh for you.'
13 'This is the contribution that you should offer, the 6th part of the ephah from the homer of wheat, and the 6th part of the ephah from the homer of barley;
14 and as for the allowance of the oil, there is the bath measure of the oil. The bath is a 10th of the cor. 10 baths are a homer; because 10 baths are a homer.
15 And one sheep out of the flock, out of 200 from the livestock of Israel, for the grain offering and for the whole burnt offering and for the communion sacrifices, in order to make atonement for them,' is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.
16 'As for all the people of the land, they will be responsible for this contribution to the chieftain in Israel.
17 And upon the chieftain will devolve the whole burnt offerings and the grain offering and the drink offering during the festivals and during the new moons and during the sabbaths, during all the festal seasons of the house of Israel. He will be the one to provide the sin offering and the grain offering and the whole burnt offering and the communion sacrifices, in order to make atonement in behalf of the house of Israel.'
18 This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, 'In the first [month], on the first [day] of the month, you should take a young bull, a son of the herd, a sound one, and you must purify the sanctuary from sin.
19 And the priest must take some of the blood of the sin offering and put it upon the doorpost of the House and upon the 4 corners of the surrounding ledge belonging to the altar and upon the doorpost of the gate of the inner courtyard.
20 And that is how you will do on the 7th [day] in the month because of any man making a mistake and because of any inexperienced one; and you people must make atonement for the House.
21 'In the first [month], on the 14th day of the month, there should occur for you the passover. As a festival for 7 days unfermented cakes are what should be eaten.
22 And on that day, in his own behalf and in behalf of all the people of the land, the chieftain must provide a young bull as a sin offering.
23 And for the 7 days of the festival he should provide as a whole burnt offering to Jehovah 7 young bulls and 7 rams, sound ones, daily for the 7 days, and as a sin offering a buck of the goats daily.
24 And as a grain offering an ephah for the young bull and an ephah for the ram he should provide, and, as regards oil, a hin to the ephah.
25 'In the 7th [month], on the 15th day of the month, during the festival, he should provide the same as these for the 7 days, the same as the sin offering, as the whole burnt offering, and as the grain offering and as the oil.'



EZEKIEL CHAPTER 46
1 This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, 'As regards the gate of the inner courtyard that is facing east, it should continue shut for the 6 workdays, and on the sabbath day it should be opened, and on the day of the new moon it should be opened.
2 And the chieftain must come in by the way of the porch of the gate, from outside, and stand by the doorpost of the gate; and the priests must render up his whole burnt offering and his communion sacrifices, and he must bow down upon the threshold of the gate, and he must go out, but the gate itself should not be shut until the evening.
3 And the people of the land must bow down at the entrance of that gate on the sabbaths and on the new moons, before Jehovah.
4 'And the whole burnt offering that the chieftain should present to Jehovah on the sabbath day should be 6 sound male lambs and a sound ram;
5 and as a grain offering an ephah for the ram, and for the male lambs a grain offering as he is able to give, and, as regards oil, a hin to the ephah.
6 And on the day of the new moon there should be a young bull, the son of the herd, a sound one, and 6 male lambs and a ram; sound ones they should prove to be.
7 And an ephah for the young bull and an ephah for the ram he should render up as a grain offering, and for the male lambs according to what he is able to afford; and, as regards oil, a hin to the ephah.
8 'And when the chieftain comes in, by the way of the porch of the gate he should come in, and by the way of it he should go out.
9 And when the people of the land come in before Jehovah in the festal seasons, the one coming in by the way of the north gate in order to bow down should go out by the way of the south gate; and the one coming in by the way of the south gate should go out by the way of the gate to the north. No one should go back by the way of the gate by which he came in, for he should go out straight ahead of him [so if you are sealed into the FRC through the inner north gate then you leave through the inner south gate of the sealing into the CRC backwards. Going through this backwards has no effect because you are not in the CRC. But if you then re-enter through the south gate of the CRC you exit through the north gate of the FRC losing that sealing. This is all because one cannot have both a Melchizedaic and a Methuselaian body in the Kingdom. It must be one or the other. You cannot be sealed both into the FRC and the CRC. You can be sealed into the ARC and the CRC. You cannot be sealed into the ARC and the FRC.]
10 And as regards the chieftain in their midst, when they come in, he should come in; and when they go out, he should go out.
11 And in the festivals and in the festal seasons the grain offering should prove to be an ephah for the young bull and an ephah for the ram, and for the male lambs as he is able to give; and, as regards oil, a hin to the ephah.
12 'And in case the chieftain should provide as a voluntary offering a whole burnt offering, or communion sacrifices as a voluntary offering to Jehovah, one must also open to him the gate that is facing east, and he must provide his whole burnt offering and his communion sacrifices just as he does on the sabbath day. And he must go out, and one must shut the gate after his going out [This one that open and closed the gate is one angel. One man would have no chance].
13 'And a sound male lamb, in its first year, you should provide as a whole burnt offering daily to Jehovah. Morning by morning you should provide it.
14 And as a grain offering you should provide with it morning by morning the 6th of an ephah and, as regards oil, the 3rd of a hin for sprinkling the fine flour. The grain offering to Jehovah is an indefinitely lasting statute, constantly.
15 And they must provide the male lamb and the grain offering and the oil morning by morning as a constant whole burnt offering.'
16 This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, 'In case the chieftain should give a gift to each one of his sons as his inheritance, it itself will become the property of his sons themselves. It is their possession by inheritance.
17 And in case he should give a gift from his inheritance to one of his servants, it must also become his until the year of liberty; and it must return to the chieftain. Only his inheritance -- as regards his sons -- is what should continue to belong to their own selves.
18 And the chieftain should not take any of the inheritance of the people so as to force them out of their possession. From his own possession he should give his sons an inheritance, to the end that my people may not be scattered each one from his possession.'
19 And he brought me into the entrance which was upon the side gate to the holy chambers unto the priests, that were facing to the north, and, look! there was a place there on 2 sides to the west [the SW and the NW corners of the inner courtyard, the temple is symmetric about the EW axis and these are the corner houses of the inner courtyard hence the outer courtyard corner posts are mentioned next].
20 And he proceeded to say to me: This is the place where the priests will boil the guilt offering and the sin offering, [and] where they will bake the grain offering, in order to carry nothing out to the outer courtyard so as to sanctify the people.
21 And he proceeded to bring me out to the outer courtyard and make me pass along to the 4 corner posts of the courtyard, and, look! there was a courtyard by [this] corner post of the courtyard, a courtyard by [that] corner post of the courtyard.
22 At the 4 corner posts of the courtyard there were small courtyards, 40 [cubits] in length and 30 in width. One/the same measure to the 4 from the corners [so the internal perimeter is 140 cubits, which are years? Lets takes the outer wall as a cubit?]
23 And a row [was] round about in them, round about to [all] 4 of them, and cookers [the row] was made [with] beneath the rows [of little cooking enclosures] round about [Now we have a plural of rows round about. This is not a mistake in Hebrew grammar - though it looks like one! There is a row around about, i.e. on both 40 cubit walls and another 'row' which is also round about which must be in the centre, which is two 40 cubit rows back to back. Each row is two rows of enclosures for cookers/barbecues] [The Hebrew for around about can also mean on either side, for the dining rooms of the inner courtyard are said to be around about the temple but they are not all around, they are just one on either side of it. So we think there are actually 4x 5 cubit wide rows of 40 cubit length in each courtyard, two for each true temple] [a pair of rows for a temple with successive high priests or presidents each being the chef of a cooking booth. A row on each 40 cubit wall and two more rows in the centre back to back].
24 Then he said to me: These are the houses of those doing the cooking, where the ministers of the house cook the sacrifice of the people.



EZEKIEL CHAPTER 47
1 And gradually he brought me back to the entrance of the House, and, look! there was water going forth from under the threshold of the House eastward [1x], for the front of the House was east. And the water was going down from under [down the 10 steps up to the house from under the threshold of the porch of the house - 10x], from the right-hand side of the House, south of the altar [1x].
2 And he gradually brought me forth by the way of the north gate [1x] and took me around by the way outside to the outer gate that is facing toward the east [1x], and, look! water was trickling/drip down from the right-hand side [male side of the gate. 2 drips, making 3 LWs with shallow understandings at that time. Drip1 was 2000Elul16 (Tony) and Drip2 was 2000Tishri16 (Jamie)] [dripping down 7 steps to the outer gate making 7x?].
3 In the going of the man eastward [1x] and a measuring line in his hand [5x], and he proceeded to measure 1,000 in cubits and to make me pass through in the waters [3x] [from bank to bank, fording the stream], waters [were] of ankles [3x.2x=6x: waters of one ankle and waters of the other].
4 And he continued measuring 1,000 and then made me pass through the waters [3x], waters [were] in knees [3x.2x=6x]. And he continued measuring 1,000 and now made me pass through -- waters of hips/loins [3x.2x=6x].
5 And he continued measuring 1,000. It was a torrent that I was not able to pass through, for the waters had risen [3x], waters [were] of swimming [3x.1x=3x], a torrent that could not be passed through [1x] [too many people coming in to handle] [The count of the measurement is 4058 days?].
6 At that he said to me: Have you seen [this], Oh son of man? [1x. On 2012January25, at 01:50, we saw the count of 4061 days from 2000Tishri16 to 2011Tebbeth27 - But that cannot be correct. We have 3 successful pass throughs or Passovers and a 4th unsuccessful Passover]. Then he had me walk and had me return [to] the bank of the torrent [2x]. .
7 When I returned, why, look! on the bank of the torrent there were very many trees, on this side and on that side.
8 And he went on to say to me: This water is going forth to the eastern region and must go down through the Arabah/desert/wilderness. And it must come to the sea. It being brought forth into the sea itself. And the waters have been healed [LWs have been healed/sanctified].
9 And it must occur that every living soul that swarms, unto every [place] which the torrents enter, will get life. And it must occur that there will be very many fish [sons of the 1AC and ICC living in the water but not on the land. The living waters are the saints in the church], because there is where this water will certainly come, and the [seawater] will be healed, and every [thing/one/soul] has life where the torrent comes.
10 And it must occur that fishers will actually stand alongside it from En-gedi [fountain of the kid of the goats, a town on the dead sea] [The fountain of the ICC] even up to En-eglaim [fountain of the two calves, a town on the dead sea] [The fountain of the 1AC]. There will come to be a drying yard for dragnets. In their kinds their fish will prove to be, like the fish of the Great Sea, very many.
11 There are its swampy places and its marshy places, and they will not be healed. To salt they will certainly be given [a fleshly salvation/preservation but not an angelic one. The judicially dead sea!].
12 And alongside the torrent there will come up, along its bank on this side and on that side, all sorts of trees for food. Their leafage will not wither, nor will their fruitage be consumed. In their months they will bear new fruit, because the water for them -- it is coming forth from the very sanctuary. And their fruitage must prove to be for food and their leafage for healing.

The 3 Outer and the 3 Inner Gates

For a written explanation of the salvation covenants for mankind please see I28, I29 and U9. These sections a legal and technical and take a bit of effort to understand. Hence Ezekiel's temple, which is a Mosaic Law representation of the functionality of, and interactions between, the 3 great salvation covenants for mankind. It is not a temple that will ever be built here on earth. It is a physical representation of a temple that has already been built in the heavens for the salvation and moral education of mankind. It physicalizes true worship.

The North Outer Gate is the entrance into the 1st Abraham Covenant, the 1AC. The Northern Kingdom had spirituality but was not the true religion. The Hebrew word for North also means hidden and the church of the 1AC is a hidden church run by the angels. It comprises 50% of mankind at any one time, all those who seek God and who make an attempt to obey their consciences.

The South Outer Gate is the entrance into the Isaaic Church Covenant, ICC. Such entrance occurs when one is water baptised into one of the 4 true Christian churches of the 2 Presences. Today is the period of the last true Christian church the LWs. So to enter into the ICC today one must be water baptised into the LWs, which means one is actually baptised into the 4EC, the 4th Elijah Covenant.

The East Outer Gate is the entrance into the Jacobian Angelic Covenant, the JAC. This is being born again as an angel in heaven. You gain an angelic soul which you cannot enter into unless you die as a human since one cannot be in two bodies at once. The subcovenants of the JAC which are populated by living humans today are the 1st New Covenant (the 1NC) and the 2nd New Covenant (the 2NC). There are 144,000 1NC saints and 12,000 1NC reserves 6,000 per presence. The 144,000 1NC Kings (72,000 from each presence) married Jesus in heaven on 2008Nisan2, the first fruits day after the 6,000 year World ended from 3993Nisan16-22 BC ended on 2008Nisan14. But there are still 6,000 1NC reserves down here. They must all enter into the LWs because you cannot be a covenant son of Jacob without being a covenant son of Isaac (and of Abraham). The 1NC Kings are chosen because they have the most love of all men. It is that simple. 

The 2NC Kings are chosen because they also have more love than the rest of mankind (all saints are chosen for this reason). But they in addition have good minds which will enable them to rule the 144,000 Kingdoms/Nations/Countries of the Kingdom of God on earth. The 2NC Kings down here have the minds and the 1NC Kings up there have the hearts. Together we have the spirit which is the mind + the heart, the logic + the motivation.

The North Inner Gate is the sealing into the Faith Ransom Covenant, the FRC. Those who pass through the gate pass the 1AC baptism test. They then get the blessing of the FRC, which is a non ageing Melchizedaic body in the Kingdom of God.

The South Inner Gate is the sealing into the Church Ransom covenant, the CRC. Those who pass through the gate pass the ICC baptism test. They then get the blessing of the CRC, which is a non ageing Methuselaian body in the Kingdom of God.

The East Inner Gate is the sealing into the Angelic Ransom Covenant, the ARC. Those who pass through the gate pass the JAC baptism test. They then get the blessing of the ARC, which is everlasting life for their angelic body!

The Western Building behind the Sanctuary is the backside of the temple. All those who fail their baptism tests leave the temple through this building. You can re-enter however at a future date through one of the Outer Gates if you wish to try again. This building is 6 cubits high internally rather than 60. It has no spiritual dimension.

The outer gates are the entrances into the 3 baptism tests of the 3 salvation covenants (the FRC, CRC and ARC). 
The inner gates are the way one passed the 3 baptism tests of the 3 salvation covenants (the FRC, CRC and ARC).
The Western Building is the exit from the temple for those who fail their test.

The 7 Steps of Righteousness Leading to the North Outer Gate

We deduce these from Romans 2 and Genesis 12...

11 For there is no partiality with God.
12 For instance, all those who sinned without law will also perish without law; but all those who sinned under law will be judged by law.
13 For the hearers of law are not the ones righteous before God, but the doers of law will be declared righteous.
14 For whenever people of the nations that do not have law do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law, are a law to themselves.
15 They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts, while their conscience is bearing witness with them and, between their own thoughts, they are being accused or even excused.
16 This will be in the day when God through Christ Jesus judges the secret things of mankind, according to the good news I declare (Romans 2).

So one is judged on ones conscience in the absence of church law. If one's conscience leads one to do by nature the things of the law, then one can be saved, i.e. enter into a salvation covenant. This is the entrance into the 1AC and here are the 6 steps from the law of Moses that we think apply. These are the 6 non religious moral imperatives of the 10 commandments...

12 Honor your father and your mother in order that your days may prove long upon the ground that Jehovah your God is giving you. [5]
13 You must not murder. [6]
14 You must not commit adultery. [7]
15 You must not steal. [8]
16 You must not testify falsely as a witness against your fellowman. [9]
17 You must not desire your fellowman's house. You must not desire your fellowman's wife, nor his slave man nor his slave girl nor his bull nor his ass nor anything that belongs to your fellowman [10] (Exodus 20).

These 6 are 'obvious morality' for any man who loves his brother. The 10th commandment is self policing and looks forward to the day when we are all self policing. It is not a sin to desire your fellowman's wife's ass. It is a sin to act on that desire! We police our own desires. God polices our actions, not our desires. But Abraham was saved not only due to his obeying his conscience but also due to his putting faith in God...

31 After that Terah took Abram his son and Lot, the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, the wife of Abram his son, and they went with him out of Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan. In time they came to Haran and took up dwelling there.
32 And the days of Terah came to be 205 years. Then Terah died in Haran (Genesis 11).

1 And Jehovah proceeded to say to Abram: Go your way out of your country and from your relatives and from the house of your father to the country that I shall show you;
2 and I shall make a great nation out of you and I shall bless you and I will make your name great; and prove yourself a blessing.
3 And I will bless those who bless you, and him that calls down evil upon you I shall curse, and all the families of the ground will certainly bless themselves by means of you.
4 At that Abram went just as Jehovah had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was 75 years old when he went out from Haran (Genesis 12).

Abraham's potential sons will be obeying their consciences and they will be making a spiritual search for God. These ones will get shown not a country but another church or another mosque or another guru or another spiritual leader by God. This new spiritual scenario will not normally be the true church since the vast majority of the sons of the 1AC in the past never joined the true church. However at the very end they do join Zoar (3½ billion of them, half of mankind!).

You see Abraham did not just dash across the desert from Ur, which is below Babylon in Mesopotamia, into Canaan. He went all the way up the Euphrates river to Haran in Syria. Then he crossed that river to come down via what is now Lebanon into Canaan. There were stages in his journey. Likewise today we have a Messianic Jew in the LWs. He started life in Judaism, the religion of his race and of his father. Then he joined the Church of England when he realised that Jesus was actually the Messiah. This seemed the obvious thing for him to do since he was English. But that was merely the religion of his nation. He soon realised that although the Church of England recognised Jesus as the Messiah it was not the true church. So he started studying with the JWs. That was more satisfying, but he could not accept their refusal of blood transfusions and came up with 1Samuel14 as a counter argument. He presented this brilliant counter argument (where the army of Saul all abused blood by eating raw meat in a life or death battle situation and received no sanction from Jehovah) to the Watchtower and got the usual discourtesy of total silence. He then did some internet research, found the LWs and presented his argument to them. The LWs accepted it as church doctrine within 48 hours. So his journey was Judaism - C of E - JWs - LWs. But a Muslim may just make a journey from one mosque to another or a Hindu from one temple to another or a Christian from one church to another and that will suffice so long as these people are looking for a spiritual outfit that is closer to God than their existing on and so long as they actually go to that outfit when they are shown it. These people are the true sons of Abraham by covenant.

And just as if you obey your own conscience (even though it is not entirely in tune with the law of God's true church at the time) you are excused, likewise if you sincerely follow your heart in another religious group believing that they are closer to God (even if they are not) you are judged to be a son of Abraham who did just that.

So the 7th step is the following for the North Outer Gate...

Be searching for the best spiritual administration or group you can find and if you find an outfit or a group that in your opinion is better than your existing one then go and join it! The first step will be leaving the religion of your race, your nation, your parents etc. You must choose your own religion, the one that to you seems to be the closest to God.

Make no mistake though. One cannot become a saint if one remains a Muslim or a Hindu or a Catholic or indeed in any false church. One has to find the true church if one is to be a saint or indeed a priest in the Kingdom of God. And at at the very end, one has to join the Christian church of Zoar to be saved. The Law that Muslims have saying that those who convert to Christianity should be killed, prevents them all from becoming saints (if they obey it) and saints are the rulers of the next system. Fortunately, however most mosques do not enforce that evil law due to their exercising their God given conscience. Religion must be a free choice it should never be coerced. Spiritual coercion is religious rape!

The 7 Steps of Love Leading to the East Outer Gate

4 And the glory of Jehovah itself came into the House by way of the gate the front of which was toward the east (Ezekiel 43)

1 And he proceeded to bring me back by way of the gate of the sanctuary, the outer one facing east, and it was shut.
2 Then Jehovah said to me: As regards this gate, shut is how it will continue. It will not be opened, and no mere man will come in by it; for Jehovah himself, the God of Israel, has come in by it, and it must continue shut (Ezekiel 44).

So the glory of God and even God himself comes in by this East outer gate. We know from John the God is love. So it is love that comes in through this gate. So the saints are the most loving of men and of women. Therefore we turn to the word of the apostle that God chose to teach us all what love really means. He said...

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels but do not have love, I have become a sounding [piece of] brass or a clashing cymbal.
2 And if I have the gift of prophesying and am acquainted with all the sacred secrets and all knowledge, and if I have all the faith so as to transplant mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 And if I feed [the hungry] with all my belongings, and if I hand over my body, that I may boast, but do not have love, I am not profited at all.
4 Love is long-suffering and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, does not get puffed up,
5 does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury.
6 It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth.
7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are [gifts of] prophesying, they will be done away with; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will be done away with (1Corinthians 13).

Love is long-suffering and kind [Step 1]
Love is not jealous, it does not brag, does not get puffed up [Step 2]
Love does not behave indecently [Step 3]
Love does not look for its own interests [Step 4]
Love does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury [Step 5]
Love does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth [Step 6]
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things [Step 7]

One starts off in love by being kind and long-suffering. Then one progresses to eliminating jealousy and boasting. Then one goes further to eliminate all indecent behaviour, anything which might stumble one's brothers, thinking of his plight when determining your actions. Then one start looking out for one's brothers interests just as one does for one's own interest. This is the engine of love. Then one ceases to become enflamed at one's brother due to his mistakes, and therefore one no longer keeps a record of them or of the damage done to you by him. Then you no longer value the temporary rewards of unrighteousness but understand the truth that one righteousness has any type of future. Then one make all these lessons permanent and unbreakable. The last step is to realise in your mind and in your heart that love is righteousness and love is moral sustainability and love is the only possible future. Hence Paul goes on to explain to us the true power of love, which is ...

8 Love never fails. But whether there are [gifts of] prophesying, they will be done away with; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will be done away with (1Corinthians 13).

The 4 verses of the bible, that define these 7 steps, are the most powerful, valuable and concise constitution for man, for angles, or for any other form of free willed being ever written. This divine piece of legislation will outlast, outperform and outshine all other legislation ever written by mankind. It is the light that is shining in the darkness. And the darkness will not overpower it.

It also compares very favourably with European Regulation (EC) No 2257/94 of 16 September 1994 covering the curvature of Bananas, known colloquially as: The Bendy Banana Law.

And it is light years ahead of the European Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1677/88 of 15 June 1988: Blemishes and Discolourations, which stipulates the following...

Class I cucumbers must "be reasonably well shaped and practically straight (maximum height of the arc: 10 mm per 10 cm of the length of cucumber)". Class II "slightly crooked cucumbers may have a maximum height of the arc of 20 mm per 10 cm of length of the cucumber".
These are allowed to have some blemishes and discolourations. Any cucumber more crooked must be packed separately and must be otherwise cosmetically perfect.

So if a cucumber is crooked and has a blemish on it, it cannot be sold in a shop or market. It is simply allowed to rot. All this in circumstances where billions of people are malnourished. 

The 8 Steps of Righteousness, Belief and Love Leading to the North, South and East Inner Gates

The first 7 of these at the Inner Gate are the same as the steps leading to the corresponding Outer Gate, save that they need to be adhered to for a specific period of time, namely the length of your baptism test. For anyone can be righteous for 5 minutes, anyone can believe something for 5 minutes, and anyone can love someone for 5 minutes.

The test of righteousness is whether we can be righteous for years in difficult circumstances.
The test of beliefs is whether one can hold fast to them in the face of counter arguments or persecution for having them.
The test of love is not whether the marriage lasts as long as the honeymoon. But whether you reach the Jubilee.

In fact with true love you should have more of it at the Jubilee even than you had at the honeymoon!

7 in the bible stands for divine temporal completeness. For God made the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th. He gave us the week as a complete unit of time that restarts the minute it is finished. So 8 stands for something more than a finite complete time period. It stands actually for an infinite time period. This is relevant to the 3 inner gates because sealing lasts forever (unless you choose to upgrade your sealing which can be only be done from the FRC to the CRC. That is from the North Inner Gate to the South Inner Gate. One can upgrade ones Melchizedaic kingdom body to a Methuselaian kingdom body by joining the true church and keeping its laws. Because obviously one cannot have two human souls in the Kingdom of God). 

Because sealing lasts for ever, one needs to find a way to keep adhering to the 7 steps forever. In order to do this one needs a helper who lives forever. That helper is the holy spirit. So the 8th step is accepting in your heart and mind that if you remain faithful to God then the holy spirit (his wife, his angelic administration) can and will help you indefinitely to adhere to the 7 steps that you kept during the period of your baptism test. 

The 3 + 3 Guard Chambers in each of the 3 + 3 Gates

Moses and Jesus both explain that matters of judgement should be established only upon the evidence of 2 or of 3 witnesses.

6 At the mouth of two witnesses or of three witnesses the one dying should be put to death. He will not be put to death at the mouth of one witness (Deuteronomy 17).

15 No single witness should rise up against a man respecting any error or any sin, in the case of any sin that he may commit. At the mouth of two witnesses or at the mouth of three witnesses the matter should stand good (Deuteronomy 19).

16 But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two more, in order that at the mouth of two or three witnesses every matter may be established (Matthew 18).

The 3 Outer and the 3 Inner Gates are places of judgement. Just as the gate was a place of judgement in an old Hebrew city. 

18 You should set judges and officers for yourself inside all your gates that Jehovah your God is giving you by your tribes, and they must judge the people with righteous judgment (Deuteronomy 16).

16 These are the things that you people should do: Speak truthfully with one another. With truth and the judgment of peace do your judging in your gates (Zechariah 8).

So the 3 chambers on each side are for judging those entering into the gates. That are actually judgement chambers rather than guard chambers. The Hebrew word used in Ezekiel [at] just means chamber. The centre line of each gate and of the sanctuary is the sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon which the whole temple is based. Post sacrifice people are judged on the right hand side of the gate looking from its entrance and pre sacrifice people are judged on the left. This is because the dinning room of the singers with the obligation of the altar was in the South east corner of the inner courtyard putting the sacrificial food South or left of the centre line looking towards the front of the house.

The judging that occurs in the 3 chambers is of course about the viability of the candidate at this particular level/height in the temple. OK you got up the 7 steps. But were you drunkenly staggering up them and are you about to fall over? Are you ready for this baptism test? Because once you enter into it there are only two outcomes, pass or fail. And failure might mean you give up and do not try again. So it is best to ensure that you are ready to take the driving test before permitting you to take it! The dimension of the chambers are 6 x 6 cubits internally and 15 cubits high since the walls are pillars are 25% of the size of the outer walls and pillars of the Gate which is 60 cubits high.

When Ezekiel does not give you a dimension (as is the case with the height of the guard chambers or the thickness of the guard chamber walls) this is not because God forgot to put that dimension in to the account. It is because it is possible to work out that dimension from other information in the account.

So the 3 judgement rooms on your side at the outer gate assess whether you are ready to take the baptism test and the 3 judgement rooms on your side at the inner gate assess whether you are ready to continue to adhere to the 7 steps indefinitely (which means you pass the baptism test).

The entire gate experience will last for 50 days a day for a cubit (assuming you get through it) since Jesus said...

Who of you by being anxious can add 1 cubit to his lifespan? (Matthew 6:27 and Luke 12:25)

So Jesus used the cubit, a measure of length to symbolise a measure of time.

So the 3 tests in the judgement chambers must last 6 days each. Perhaps 3 judges look at you for 6 days each with 5 day gaps between their judgments (whilst they write up their conclusions) making in total a 33 day judgement period. 33½ would be better. This being the length of Jesus life before he was sacrificed, saving mankind and the fallen angels and passing his divinity test. And this being the length of Adam's life before he sinned, failing his obedience test and demonstrating what is obvious to us today, namely that a human with no experience of sin is not ready to have judicial life. 33½x is therefore a testing period (days of years). The extra half day (which takes you right up to 1½ cubit thick gate held up by 2 cubit thick side walls) would be when the 3 judges meet to reach their final conclusion. If 2 out of the 3 say judges yes then perhaps you may come in through the outer gates. But we think you need 3 out of 3 to consent before you can go through the inner gates. This is because, really, in the opinion of the LW church, 2 witnesses are fine for non life or death judgments. But 3 are preferable for life or death judgements (such as sealing). OK, if you have been raped and there are only two witnesses, that can be the basis of a life or death judgement. But if 3 witnesses are available one must hear them all in a life or death judicial matter (a disfellowshipping offence) - see joining.

The inner and outer gate doors themselves are therefore 5 cubits wide (11¼ feet) and 1½ cubits thick (3.375 feet thick i.e. just over a metre thick) and 60 cubits high (135 feet high). Obviously it would be impossibly hard for men to open such gates with their bare hands! But that is the whole point of 60 cubit high gates! They are designed only to be opened by the angels! A typical human door is less than a tenth of a cubit thick by 1¼ cubits wide by 3 cubits high. This is around 6,000 times smaller in volume and in weight than the doors of the gates.

12 'And in case the chieftain should provide as a voluntary offering a whole burnt offering, or communion sacrifices as a voluntary offering to Jehovah, one must also open to him the gate that is facing east, and he must provide his whole burnt offering and his communion sacrifices just as he does on the sabbath day. And he must go out, and one must shut the gate after his going out [This one that open and closed the gate is one angel. One man would have no chance]

The 2x 50 cubit dining room wings on the left and right of the 3 outer gates

Both dining wings are the same length in cubits for each outer gate. So they stand for two periods of equal length. The post sacrifice period runs for 1982½ years from 33Nisan14 to 2015Tishri29 when the last son of Adam dies. This being the end of the Time of the End of Daniel 12. The pre sacrifice period therefore runs for 1982½ years from 1951Tishri to 33Nisan14. This gives us a 7½ year 'Time of the End' from 2008Nisan14-2015Tishri14, the 3rd adamic Passover and a 7½ year 'Time of the Beginning' from 1951Tishri14 when we think God told both Terah and Abraham to go to Canaan via Haran, to 1943Nisan14. This is an extension of the midst prophecy to run for an extra 15 years from 1951Tishri14 to 2015Tishri14 rather than the 3950 years 1943Nisan14 to 2008Nisan14.

On 1943Nisan14, Abraham crossed the Euphrates with Lot, inaugurating the 1st Abrahamic Covenant, after having buried his father Terah, in Haran...

2 He said: Men, brothers and fathers, hear. The God of glory appeared to our forefather Abraham while he was in Mesopotamia [in Ur in fact - see Genesis 11:31], before he took up residence in Haran, 
3 and he said to him: 'Go out from your land and [out from] your relatives and come on into the land I shall show you [he is not told to go out from the house of his father here. So this is the command to leave Ur, not the command in Genesis 12 to leave Haran - God is Patriarchal. Abraham was not told to leave the house of his father until his father had died. The command to leave Ur was given to Abraham in 1948Nisan when he was 70 years old we believe by symmetry with the 5 year Time of the end - deduced from the matching 50 cubit dining rooms on either side of the outer gates of Ezekiel's temple in chapters 40-47. 1951Tishri to 1943Nisan was the Time of the Beginning and 2008Nisan14 to 2015Tishri is the Time of the End of Daniel 12].'
4 Then [
tote] he went out from the land of the Chaldeans and took up residence in Haran. And from there, after his father died, [God] caused him to change his residence to this land in which you now dwell (Acts 7).

31 After that Terah took Abram his son and Lot, the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, the wife of Abram his son, and they went with him out of Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan. In time they came to Haran and took up dwelling there.
32 And the days of Terah came to be 205 years. Then Terah died in Haran (Genesis 11).

1 And Jehovah proceeded to say to Abram: Go your way out of your country and from your relatives and from the house of your father to the country that I shall show you;
2 and I shall make a great nation out of you and I shall bless you and I will make your name great; and prove yourself a blessing.
3 And I will bless those who bless you, and him that calls down evil upon you I shall curse, and all the families of the ground will certainly bless themselves by means of you.
4 At that Abram went just as Jehovah had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was 75 years old when he went out from Haran.
5 So Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot the son of his brother and all the goods that they had accumulated and the souls whom they had acquired in Haran, and they got on their way out to go to the land of Canaan. Finally they came to the land of Canaan (Genesis 12).

So Abraham acquired souls and good in Haran and took up dwelling there until his father died. The symmetry of the dining rooms either side of the 3 outer gates is telling us that the period between the start of Abraham's journey from Ur to Canaan and his reaching Canaan, the Time of the Beginning, is the same length as the period of his journey from the world into the Kingdom of God, the Time of the End. Abraham (the successful sons of the 1AC) is fully in the Kingdom of God only when the antics of the sons of Gehenna have come to an end on 2015Tishri.

Now each dining block has 3 stories. The Ground floor is for the sons of the 1AC and the FRC, the second floor is for the sons of the ICC and the CRC and the 3rd floor is for the sons of the JAC and the ARC. For even though you may have come through the one outer gate, you can reverse back through another and then go forward to enter into a new baptism test. If you reverse through any inner or outer gate which you have not gone forward through before then there is no effect. But if you reverse through a gate that you have gone forwards through before you temporarily lose that sealing until it is determined whether you can be sealed into a higher covenant. If you can then the prior sealing is lost permanently. If you cannot then you regain your prior sealing. This is why those who enter through the North inner gate must leave through the South inner gate and vice versa.  So here then are the gate rules as we presently understand them...

1. The only way out of the temple is through the west building. You cannot leave through any of the outer gates.
2. You can reverse into any outer gate you have not yet been through to go through it without leaving the temple and start and new baptism test. 
3. You can reverse out of the North Inner Gate to declare that you wish to re-enter through the South Inner Gate in order to have a Methuselaian body rather than a Melchizedaic body in the kingdom and in order to be a priest rather than merely a subject of the kingdom.
4. If you enter into the inner courtyard through the South or East Inner Gate then you leave through the North Inner Gate since that baptism is irrelevant to you. 
5. If you enter into the inner courtyard through the North Inner Gate then you leave through the South Inner Gate since that baptism is irrelevant to you, unless you intend to get sealed into the CRC in which case you would leave through the North Inner Gate backwards to suspend your FRC sealing until it is determined whether you can be sealed into the CRC.

The windows are arranged so that anyone standing on the threshold of an outer gate can see all the way through into the inner courtyard through the windows of the outer and inner gates. So light from the inner courtyard shines on those standing on the thresholds of the outer and the inner gates.

The 4 Kitchen Courtyards in the 4 Corners of the Outer Courtyard: From Abraham to Armageddon

The temple is the post Abrahamic worship system. It runs from 1951Tishri when Terah and Abraham left Ur to Canaan via Haran to 2015Tishri when the last son of Adam dies. The last man to enter into the outer gates does so on 2015Tammuz30 we presently understand when the extra 195 days of the 1AC for Zoar end. The last man to enter into the inner gates does so on 2015Elul30 when sealing ends for the sons of the FRC we presently understand. 

So the 4 kitchens of the temple are the Tent of the Patriarchs and then the Tabernacle of the law in the SW corner.

6 For I have not dwelt in a house from the day of my bringing the sons of Israel up out of Egypt to this day, but I was continually walking about in a tent and in a tabernacle (2Samuel7).

Solomon's and Zerubabbel's temples in the SE corner, the two true churches of the first presence TCC1 (of Peter which became the Roman Catholic Church, which lost its true religion status under Titus) and TCC2 (Paul's church which continued for over 50 presidents and over 360 years) in the NE corner and the two true churches of the second presence, TCC3 and TCC4 (the JWs and the LWs) in the NW corner.

So each kitchen has two true churches within in it. And each church has 2 rows opposite each other. So there are 4 parallel rows with two gates into the space between the rows. The building will be 6 cubits high being one storey and operated by men. Buildings operated by angels are 60 cubits high in this temple design. The Abrahamic tent may not have been a church/temple because it was only for his household. We do not think you could become a proselyte and just join yourself to Abraham's household. In this way we get 7 temples from 8 kitchens. So there are 7 temples in the Abrahamic system and then the Kingdom of God, starting with Zoar.

The 180 Inner Courtyard Dining Rooms for the Priests

These run for 100 cubits on either side of the temple and are attached not to the temple but to the inside of the inner courtyard wall. They are in 3 storeys. Everyone who goes through an inner gate becomes a priest because he obviously knows from his own experience all that is necessary to be sealed/saved into the Kingdom. The sons of the FRC eat on the ground floor. The sons of the CRC eat on the middle floor. The sons of the ARC eat on the top floor. They then teach what they have eaten to others in pursuance of their priestly duties. The CRC has the largest dining rooms because the true church has the most food!

The stairs are internal and there are 30 dining rooms per floor. Outside each storey is a 2 cubit walkway.

The West Building

This is where you end up if you fail a test. You have tow options. Leave the whole temple idea through the back door and fall back into the world - they are not steps specified here just a sheer drop. Or wait in the pit stop for you next lap. This second approach has the advantage of maintaining the spiritual status that you achieved when you first walked up the 7 steps. So this building has 3 gates, which are North, South and West. The West gate takes you out of the temple rather unceremoniously. The North and South gates start your second lap. The building is 70 x 90 internally - which is quite large. So it houses a lot of people who are waiting for their second lap.
