Palm trees

What images come into your mind when you think of a tropical paradise? I am guessing that you see palm trees among other things.

Interestingly, in Ezekiel’s temple, God showed the prophet palm trees carved on different places of the temple. In chapters 40 and 41, Ezekiel mentions palm trees thirteen times.

Palm trees grow in warm climates, although some varieties can grow in places where it does get cold during the winter, but for the most part we associate them with warm temperatures.

To me, that just sounds pleasant and peaceful, which is exactly what God’s temple is, a place of peace and pleasantness.
