Is Ezekiel's Temple an actual temple that will be built with his measurements?  Ezekiel 40:5 - Ezekiel 42:20.

The millennial temple.

"the temple. See 1 Kin. 6, 7 to compare with details of Solomon’s temple. This could not be the heavenly temple since Ezekiel was taken to Israel to see it (v. 2). It could not be Zerubbabel’s temple since the glory of God was not present then. It could not be the eternal temple since the Lord and the Lamb are its temple (cf. Rev. 21:22). Therefore, it must be the earthly millennial temple built with all of the exquisite details that are yet to be outlined. measuring rod six cubits long … a handbreadth. The rod extended 6 royal (long) cubits of 21 in. for a total of 10.5 ft., each cubit being made up of a standard width of 18 in. and a handbreadth of 3 in." MacArthur, J., Jr. (Ed.). (1997).

It was meant to be seen by Ezekiel, not built...
Then why all the detail?

You spiritualize everything. I do not. I have a high view of scripture.

...Preterists, such as Valiant, must allegorize everything in order to support their position, even if it appears to be ridiculous, as is his claim of the temple only meant to be seen by Ezekiel and not a literal temple to be built.
Our hermeneutics determine how we become convinced of these things.

Truthfully, I don't know why there will be sacrifices during the millennial period, since Christ was the ultimate sacrifice...
It's the millennium; but, it's not heaven.

"The offerings (45:18–25; 46:9–15, 19–24): On the first day of each new year, in the early spring, they are to sacrifice a bull to purify the Temple."[1]

I voted on the poll and noticed majority voted "no"?  What in the world is going on?  The temple is clearly described in the bible isn't it? hmm?

Now ask the no voters if they believe in replacement theology.
