And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. Rev.11:1-2
O God, the nations have come into your inheritance;
they have defiled your holy temple;
they have laid Jerusalem in ruins. Psalm79:1
Those deep inside the temple of God, at the altar of incense, have repented and continue to repent. They have turned away from sin; they forsake it. They have died to self; they have died on the cross. They have also entered in beyond the veil to the Holy of Holies and are with the Lord. They abide where the blood of Christ is applied. They worship Him in the Holy Spirit and they worship Him in the Truth. But the outer court is full of ‘Christians in name only’; the foolish virgins. This is also where the heathen have invaded, bringing compromise, defilement and lukewarmness. They in the outer court do not have the Bread, the Light, nor the altar of true worship in Spirit and Truth. They are “in the System” but are not close to Christ. They have not entered in to where He is. The crowds in the outer court are not even measured.
