Great warning. A message on chapter 33. The watchman must warn and the hearers need to hear. The tragedy of loving to hear the Word of God preached, but of not obeying and of hating the God behind His Word.
Punishing the nations. God is going to punish the nations who hated Israel and the prophecies against them will be literally fulfilled. God has the right to discipline His people, but woe to others who rejoices in this or who take advantage of this.
Great warning. The tragedy of the people not sensing the departure of God's glory, of God's presence. Love for sin makes us insensible for spiritual things. The tragedy of seeing in sin more beauty than in God.
Great mandate. Ezekiel is called by God to bring His message to a defeated and stubborn people. Ezekiel is asked of the Lord to submit to His Word and to identify with His Word - only after that ha can be a messenger of God. This is true for every minister of the Lord today.
Great Encouragement This was a great encouragement to me, thank you Pastor. As the Lord has me in Juneau serving Him through Church Planting, this portion of Scripture was what my ears needed to hear!
Great character. A godly man is running from and running unto, struggling, holding on something, keeping the commissions. And the motives for doing these. Doing all these because of who our God is.
