Read Ezekiel 6-12
Ashley Peterson May we be vessels of truth. That tell of what we have seen. What God has said, what he has done. 🤎
Charity I am praying that there will be no more false divination or lies in the mouth of God’s people or to God’s people. God can clean up the house eh?!
When God is wanting to get a message to the people he starts with his glory, he confirms the word he’s about to give with the manifestation of his presence, then he sends his prophet and when they wonder about the timing he says the timing is now. God is not a God of confusion when he speaks to you it will be clear if it is not clear it is not God.
And if it is a word for the future this too will be clear. God goes to great lengths to communicate with the exiles through Ezekiel.
God’s word through Ezekiel is pertinent for us today.
The promise is secure, as he prophesies we can know God will do it. For the Israelites, there’s a big association between the Land and God. Consider the dedication of the temple with Solomon—in this place— in this Temple, GLORY. Now imagine you’re cut off from that place. Many of the exiles would’ve felt cut off from God. And after being cut off from the place, the temple is destroyed, and all the ceremonies are stopped. Dead in sin without a way back. Ezekiel sees God literally go into exile with them, by bringing his glory to the river bank. It makes me think of the new testament: here in is love not that we love God, but he loves us. 1 John 4:10! They needed as we also need restoration. God begins in our heart, which is so challenging, when the heart is dead and feels no remorse, has no love for God. On that day only God can make it soft. Consider Christ’s ability as we close today, I will give them one heart and put a new spirit within. Then I will take the heart of stone out of their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes, and keep my ordinances and do them, and they will be my people and I shall be their God. Ezekiel 11:19-20
