Dr. Rick Griffith Old Testament Survey: Ezekiel 510b Ezekiel’s Prophecies of Restoration Adapted from a doctoral research paper by Rev. Michael Shen, Dallas Theological Seminary Throughout the Book of Ezekiel God promises that He will continue to be faithful to His despairing and rebellious people in exile because of His unconditional covenant to give Israel the land of Palestine (cf. Gen. 12:1-3; 15:17-21; Deut. 30:1-10). This restoration is depicted in Ezekiel 36–37 more than any other section of the prophecy, but several key elements of the restoration appear throughout the book in many other chapters: Chapter Land Restored Cleansing from Sin Spirit Given New Heart New Covenant David Ruling Permanent Restoration Whole House Recognition Formula 11 x x x x 16 x x x x x 17 x x 20 x x x x x 28 x x x 34 x x x x x x 36 x x x x x x x x 37:1-14 x x x x 37:15-28 x x x x x x x 39 x x x x The above chart makes clear that no passage contains all elements of the restoration, but put together all the texts paint a picture of a glorious future. The three aspects that appear consistently are the promise of the land, the promise that the whole house of Israel (both Israel and Judah) will inherit the land, and the recognition formula in which God promises that the restoration will demonstrate that “I am the L ORD .” Indeed, even in our generation (1948) we have seen a partial physical (or national) restoration of Israel to the land (37:1-8, 11-13). However, the full (spiritual) restoration of the nation will not occur until Israel trusts in Jesus Christ as Messiah at Christ’s return (37:9-10, 14-28). Signs in Ezekiel Irving L.
