Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 12:25


12:25 I will speak - There has been and shall be a succession of God's ministers, by whom he will speak, to the end of the world. Even in the worst times, God left not himself without witness, but raised up men that spoke for him, and spoke from him.


Discussion for Ezekiel 12

  • Tyrone Fleming
    Ezekiel represent today's preacher, warning the flock of GOD. Telling them about the sins and transgression against the laws an commandments of GOD. We the church has so use to the preacher saying what thus safety the Lord, but we don't believe that it's goin to happen right then. What the Lord is telling Ezekiel to tell Israel the church if I " GOD" speak a word to the people, I'm going to do right then what I speak. No prolonging it, no putting it back.
  • Though the vision tarries, wait. It will come to pass. As the Lord has spoken.

    Verse 12, when a pilot puts on a helmet for war he no longer relies on his eyes but instead the superior technology inside the helmet for vision and direction. A prince can represent a military leader. Weapons are borne on the shoulders or wings of an aircraft. Verse 14 may be referring to more than one aircraft in this sortie. Verse 15 may be referring to this becoming a world war where many nations join to fight. Verse 18, it is possible this is referring to nuclear contamination of food supplies or perhaps biological contamination. Food and water would have to be carefully tested for radiation or virus before it is given to eat, with trembling because if it is highly radiated or viral then just holding it is injurious to the body.

    The LORD words will not come back to him void and now in these days and times we need him more than ever. Just like those days spoken of in Ezekiel, the same things are going on now with the way that people hear the words about the LORD coming back soon. Although we have heard this word for many years the Lord GOD is coming back he is right at the door. I am a true believer in the LORD and the message he delivers in the closing verse of Ezekiel 12:28 is how I feel about these last days now being revealed to us all. Revelation is being fulfilled as we breathe.
  • Timothy Wayne George
    Whom the Lord loves, He disciplines everyone of His children. Israel had rebelled against the commands of the Lord, and because of that they would be sent into captivity in Babylon. Only a few men would be spared, so they could testify of the calamity. Jesus came to set the captives free, yet they rejected Him as the Messiah, and crucified Him. He rose the third day, with all power in His hand, and is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven. God the father will make His enemies, His foot stool, and He will reign on His father's throne David when He comes again to set up His Kingdom. We are in the Church age, where He is calling out Jews, and Gentiles to be apart of the body of Christ. Pray to God that your husband, and your children will accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, as well as thine house.
