The Persistent Purpose of God (with Chinese translation)
by T. Austin-Sparks
"Human history is not just human history, it is God's history! This book of Ezekiel seems to have a lot of earthly history in it, but the truth is that it is all governed by a Divine End and Purpose. Now, the big question which we meet right at the beginning of this book is, "Does this book have a message for the Church in this dispensation? Does it just relate to a period in the past history of the people of Israel? Does it relate to the future dispensation in the matter of prophecy? Or is its main message for the Church in this dispensation?" We shall be compelled to face those questions as we move into this book, especially in those parts of the book which we are going to particularly consider. The answer is found not in the earthly, but in the Heavenly; not in the temporal, but in the spiritual."
