1 Samuel 5:4 (c) We may learn from this interesting incident that those who approach an idol or the temple of the idol should see that the idol could neither think (for his head was off), nor work (for his hands were off). He could be of no use whatever to the idolater. The presence of the GOD of Israel destroys the idols of men.

Ezekiel 9:3 (c) This is the first movement of the Spirit of GOD as He prepared to leave Israel to the fate of her enemies. It is a picture of the way the Spirit gradually ceases to work with a soul when that person deliberately turns against GOD and accepts false teachings. The Spirit crossed the threshold of the door of the temple as His first action in departure. (See also Ezekiel 10:4).

Ezekiel 47:1 (b) No doubt this is a type of our blessed Lord from whom the gracious Holy Spirit is given. CHRIST is the door. He is the giver of the Spirit. We must first belong to the Lord JESUS before the Spirit can be given to us. CHRIST must put the sins away before the Spirit can dwell with us. Since the river in this allegory represents the Holy Spirit, it is evident that the threshold of the door represents the Saviour.
