The Lord Jesus Christ is the Measuring Man.

He is measuring our response to every situation we face. Will we overcome through the obstacles and challenges we face today? Will we walk in the spirit or respond in the flesh? His grace IS SUFFICIENT for us to pass every test.
The finish line lies directly in front of us; each of us will appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ:
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences”; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11 (NASB)

The Measuring Man Is In Our Midst

  1. 1. Jesus Christ is the Measuring Man; Ezekiel 40:3-4; Ephesians 4:13. He sets a “plumbline” (Hebrew word “to be narrow”) in the midst of His house; Amos 7:7-8.
  2. 2. Jesus is “measuring” the accuracy and the substance of the Word being delivered to His people; it must reflect His character, His truth, His nature, His Kingdom principles.
  3. 3. Jesus is discerning, reviewing, evaluating and examining the details of our lives.
  4. 4. Jesus knows our present condition and is determined to bring us into His perfect will:
  5. He sees our circumstances, our geographical location, our business, ministry and family situations, and will bring them into order as we cooperate with Him.
  6. He recognizes our strengths and weaknesses, our physical and emotional state.
  7. He sees our present occupations and commitments, and our capacity to rise above pressure and present trials (He doesn’t want us to “burn out”); Matthew 11:29-30.
  8. He sees our reaction and response to disappointment, hurts, wounds, rejection, past failure and trauma (are we “stuck” or are we “moving on”?).
  9. 5. He is adjusting or changing our focus, vision and revelation where necessary:
  10. He is showing us our “assignment” or “calling” for the present season.
  11. He is causing our desires to come into agreement with His desires for us.
  12. 6. His “temple” is first measured, then judged (for correction) and is then “approved”.
  13. 7. God’s intention is to bring us to the “measure” of the stature of the fullness of Christ; Ephesians 3:17-19; 4:13.
  14. 8. Religion measures the “exterior”, the outward observances, but Jesus Christ measures the “inward”, internal spiritual condition of His temple (us); Ezekiel 41:3-4
  15. Jesus desires that there would be truth and divine understanding in our “inward parts”; Job 38:36; Psalm 51:6. He speaks to us “out of the house”; Ezekiel 43:6
  16. His measuring includes a “daily inspection”; His probing is going deep; Ezekiel 20:37
  17. Each must come into “alignment” with His standard of holiness; 1 Peter 1:15-16
  18. His sceptre is measuring the extent of His “rulership”, His lordship within us.
  19. He is measuring our present level of maturity, our ability to overcome; Ex. 23:29-30
  20. Each must “measure up” to a “divine specification”, to be duly fitted for a specific position, office or duty. Certain qualifications are required for God’s “assignments”.
  21. Our motives are being examined; there must be a “living manifestation” of His standard of godly character and behavior, within our “inner sanctuary”.
  22. Our worship is being measured: purity that flows from the heart to glorify Him; John 4:23; Revelation 11:1
  23. 9. Jesus is measuring us individually as His temple and corporately as His habitation. Every “chamber” (storage places for salt, wine and oil), and every “narrow window” (which reveals the discipline and revelation within) is being measured. The “lower pavement” (principle of humility) is measured; the “gates” are measured (are they being restored or are they burned with fire?); the “tables” (place of fellowship, communion) are numbered; the thickness of the “wall” (durability) is measured; the “courts” “steps” and “sides” are measured, numbered and named; see Ezekiel, chapters 40-42.
  24. 10. God’s people are arising to new levels, new heights in the spirit realm. Everything has to be measured by the “Pattern” in the heavenly realm; Hebrews 8:5. Jesus is the Pattern Son; Ezekiel 43:10.

“Then I looked up and there before me was a man with a measuring line in his hand. I asked, where are you going? He answered me, “to measure Jerusalem, to find out how wide and how long it is”; Zechariah 2:1-2
