Submission to authorities.

Romans 13:3-4 “For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does […]

God keeps His promises.

Ezekiel 39:24-25 “I dealt with them according to their uncleanness and their transgressions, and hid my face from them. “Therefore thus says the Lord God: Now I will restore the fortunes of Jacob and have mercy on the whole house of Israel, and I will be jealous for my holy name.” Amen, and hallelujah! Brethren, […]

God’s sovereign control.

Ezekiel 38:17-18 “Thus says the Lord God: Are you he of whom I spoke in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel, who in those days prophesied for years that I would bring you against them? But on that day, the day that Gog shall come against the land of Israel, declares the […]

Valley of dry bones.

Ezekiel 37:3-5 “And he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will […]

Bloodshed

Ezekiel 35:6 “therefore, as I live, declares the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; because you did not hate bloodshed, therefore blood shall pursue you.” Brethren, Ezekiel 35 is a prophecy of condemnation against Edom, also referred to as Mount Seir (Mount Seir was like Israel’s Mount Zion). […]

Pride goes before a fall.

Ezekiel 31:14 “All this is in order that no trees by the waters may grow to towering height or set their tops among the clouds, and that no trees that drink water may reach up to them in height. For they are all given over to death, to the world below, among the children of […]

Saved to the Uttermost

“For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.” – Romans 5:10. Brethren, our Lord and Savior lives! We are forgiven and reconciled to God by the blood, death and resurrection of His […]

Ezekiel 27

Ezekiel 27:33-34 “When your wares came from the seas, you satisfied many peoples; with your abundant wealth and merchandise you enriched the kings of the earth. Now you are wrecked by the seas, in the depths of the waters; your merchandise and all your crew in your midst have sunk with you.” Brethren , Tyre […]

Tools in preaching the gospel

Romans 3:20 “For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.” Just to take a step away from Ezekiel, brethren, this verse in Romans is important for us, because it confirms the effectiveness of the law when preaching the gospel. How […]

Obedience over understanding.

Ezekiel 24:18 “So I spoke to the people in the morning, and at evening my wife died. And on the next morning I did as I was commanded.” Brethren, this chapter is a seemingly hard one to grasp. God tells Ezekiel that his wife would die that very day and that Ezekiel would not be […]
