127. Internal Meaning of Ezekiel, Chapter 4

Representation of the perverted church in the church. (2)

1-2 He should represent the falsities of the church, and the church besieged by them. (2)

3 He should represent the hardness of their heart, from which it is that they have no fear; (2)

4-8 he should also represent the church besieged by falsities of evil and evils of falsity. (2)

9-16 He should represent the falsification and adulteration of the sense of the letter of the Word, (2)

17 by which everything of the church has perished. (2, 3)

Commentary

 

Feet      

By New Christian Bible Study Staff

← Previous   Next →

by Jenny Stein

Our feet are the lowest and most utilitarian parts of our bodies, and in the Bible they represent the lowest and most utilitarian part of our spiritual selves. Called the “natural” level, this is the everyday aspect of life, involved with routine tasks and demands and the thoughts associated with them. It’s not terribly deep or introspective or thoughtful, but it is useful – just like feet.

This correspondence is true of the Lord and true of church communities as well as of individuals. The Lord’s Divine Natural leads us through relatively simple obedience, and communities have a natural level on which they serve their communities in simple but tangible ways.
