In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither. In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south. And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate. And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.(Ezekiel 40:1-4) KJV
Ezekiel gives us a detailed vision of the temple that will be built in the Millennial Kingdom. This ties to our context of hydrology in verse 2: In the visions of God… and set me upon a very high mountain.
In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south.(Ezekiel 40:2) KJV
Here is the very high mountain, the mountain that fills the whole earth from Daniel. It is the location of Jerusalem and the temple which Ezekiel will describe in detail.
Ezekiel’s vision confuses to a lot of people and artistic ideas of what this may look like are rather weird.
This isn’t a mountain that currently exists but a mountain that fills the whole Earth, as prophesied by Isaiah, Daniel and Zechariah. We’re told repeatedly that all flesh shall see the glory of God, and that everyone will be able to see God’s Holy mountain. We’re also told that all people will flow unto it and all will worship on the holy mountain.
We have to understand some of the limits of the language here and realize that “whole earth,” means the whole of the habitable portion of the land, not the whole planet. We also need to understand that if everyone can see Jerusalem from where ever they are on this mountain then there’s a clear line of sight. There can’t be any curvature of the surface of the Earth. This puts a constraint on the size of the habitable portion.
We’re able to propose boundaries for the contiguous land mass of the Millennial Kingdom because we did the work necessary to systematically deduce what’s going to happen to the Earth during the tribulation.
The surface of the Earth is going to be destroyed by a series of plagues. The stars are going to fall to the earth like rain. Fortunately stars aren’t distant suns and galaxies, that’s merely an elaborate fiction derived for the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop). Stars are pieces of rock with reflective surfaces, crystalline firmament material (CFM) some of which may only be as large as a football field or so.
By the time these hit the Earth as great hail they’ll each weigh about the weight of a talent. This means that an incredible amount of new material will be added to the mass of the Earth. Couple this with the need to mitigate the effect of the expansion of hell on global warming and the diameter of the Earth will be expanded, both to allow the construction of the hydrological system and to mitigate the heat of hell. This is another way in which the Earth will be returned to something similar to its original condition.
