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. Jesus ultimately confirms to Ezekiel that whatever word he gives to Israel, though they surely will not hear it, they will be without excuse, because a prophet (or preacher of God’s word) would be among them, and they would know God’s judgment. In essence, we as Christians, are called to the same job. The gospel message is God’s complete and perfect work of atonement for all the world. There is no other opportunity for reconciliation from sin and transgressing God’s law. Repentance and trust in Jesus Christ is the only way to be forgiven and enter into Heaven. Therefore, like Ezekiel, we as preachers of God’s Word, go out into the world and let the ears of those that are in ear-shot hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. So that when our time is done, and God judges the whole of mankind, those that were preached to would be without excuse. God bless you!
