“DON’T BE AFRAID OF THEM” [Ezek 3:9]

“Look, I have made your face as hard as their faces & your forehead as hard as their foreheads. I have made your forehead like a diamond, harder than flint. Don’t be afraid of them or discouraged by the look on their faces, though they are a rebellious house.” vs8-9

We must not punk out. God’s made us as strong as we need to be to do the work that He’s given us. We must get our words from God, and then we must stand. It doesn’t matter what He’d have us to say, so long as we say His word, as we’ve received it. They will fight against us, but we will stand. They will beat against the man who pleases God, because they are a rebellious house. We will prevail because we are strong enough for the task.

First, God sends us to do a difficult mission. He says, “They are a rebellious house.” We are to stand against the sinners of this world, particularly Christians so-called, and we are to preach all that He tells us. They are hardhearted, so they will hate us, even as they hate Him, but we must stand faithfully [vs7]. We cannot withdraw, but we can’t speak unless He gives the word to us. He says, “And you, son of man, listen to what I tell you: Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and eat what I am giving you [Ezek 2:8].”

Do not go in your own strength with your own reasoning! Let Him speak to you supernaturally, then you’ll have something to say by faith, and it will be His word and His Spirit. Do not use the strength of man; it is not strong enough; it is pride, and it will fail. Preaching God’s word argumentatively, instead of in the power of the Spirit, will lead us to sin, because we don’t have God ourselves. Preaching it faithfully, as we’ve received it, will cause us to shine and save the elect.

Secondly, it doesn’t matter what He’d have us to say, we say it. Ezekiel says, “When He unrolled it before me, it was written on the front and back; words of lamentation, mourning, and woe were written on it [Ezek 2:10].” It doesn’t matter if we’re in Italy preaching against Catholicism, or in Nigeria and against Pentecostalism and lying signs and wonders. It doesn’t matter if we’re preaching against the materialism and nationalism of the American church. We preach the gospel, and all that He says, we say it! We are gospel preachers, so that is always the tone of the message, but we reprove, rebuke, and we warn. We preach patiently, lovingly, and fiery sermons. We do not relent or yield, nor do we spare them for their crying, but we pull the log from our own eye, so we can see clearly how to help our brothers and call men to repentance.

We care more about God than their anger; we care more about them than ourselves, and we will not hold back the word for any reason. Their blood will not be on our hands [Acts 18:6]! God’s given US this glorious task, and we are most privileged. CH Spurgeon said, “To be a soul winner is the happiest thing in the world”, and he was right: To be in the BATTLE WITH GOD is the highest privilege of mankind; to labor together with Christ is the greatest, most enjoyable, heart rending, and satisfying work that we can enter.

Thirdly, do not fear what they shall do to you. He says, “Do not be afraid of them or discouraged by the look on their faces.” Too many are scared to tell the whole truth. Too many preserve reputation and do not stick by their convictions, so they are taken away, and they become mute when they should be speaking, and so honor goes to someone else! Don’t let this happen to you.

You have God on your side, and you are fully equipped. He says, “Look, I have made your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. I have made your forehead like a diamond, harder than flint.” You have His peace, His joy, and His Spirit. You have what NO MAN can give you, which is God on the inside and satisfaction in doing His will. While others run from the battle, run to the forefront and do all that He’s commanded you. The problem is not with us who preach faithfully; it is with them who will not hear [Ezek 2:6].

Finally, the Lord has blessed us to get in the game. Get your uniform dirty. Make plays. Go all out. Do it with your might!
