Ezekiel’s call

Ezekiel 2:5 “And whether they hear or refuse to hear for they are a rebellious house they will know that a prophet has been among them.” Brethren, Ezekiel is called by Jesus Christ to speak to the nation of Israel due to their rebelliousness.

He is like

Ezekiel 1:26 “And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance.” Brethren, the book of Ezekiel consists of God’s Word to His people in exile under Babylonian rule.

Worse off than Sodom?

Lamentations 4:6 “For the chastisement of the daughter of my people has been greater than the punishment of Sodom, which was overthrown in a moment, and no hands were wrung for her.” Brethren, this was very interesting for me to read.

Judgment of Edom

Jeremiah 49:19 “Behold, like a lion coming up from the jungle of the Jordan against a perennial pasture, I will suddenly make him run away from her. And I will appoint over her whomever I choose. For who is like me? Who will summon me? What shepherd can stand before me?” Amen brethren! Wow, God’s […]

Judgment of Moab

Jeremiah 48:42 “Moab shall be destroyed and be no longer a people, because he magnified himself against the Lord.” Glory to The Lord of hosts! Brethren, the nation of Moab was a common foe of Israel. They regularly attempted to ally against the nation to overthrow it, and were not even allowed, as a nation, […]

Ishtar worship

Jeremiah 44:15-16 “Then all the men who knew that their wives had made offerings to other gods, and all the women who stood by, a great assembly, all the people who lived in Pathros in the land of Egypt, answered Jeremiah: ‘As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of […]
