Ezekiel 48 is the last chapter of the book. The twelve tribes of Israel are mentioned here, with emphasis placed on the holy district and the property assigned to the coming Prince. This ordering of Israel’s tribes does not include Joseph by name, but it does include his sons Manasseh and Ephraim. The holy district is covered in verses 9-21. This always makes me think of the LORD’s prayer. When we pray these words in the LORD’s
prayer “…Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (MATTHEW 6:10), we are inviting God to make Himself known in our space. He is here in judgment, but when we accept the provision of Christ our relationship with God changes to one of forgiveness and compassion.
