1 He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.

2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.

3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side;

4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:

6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.

7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.

8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem?

9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.

10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.

11 And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.

Matthew Henry's Ezekiel Chapter 9 Bible commentary...

A vision denoting the destruction of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the departure of the symbol of the Divine presence.1-4 It is a great comfort to believers, that in the midst of destroyers and destructions, there is a Mediator, a great High Priest, who has an interest in heaven, and in whom saints on earth have an interest. The representation of the Divine glory from above the ark, removed to the threshold, denoted that the Lord was about to leave his mercy-seat, and to pronounce judgment on the people. The distinguishing character of this remnant that is to be saved, is such as sigh and cry to God in prayer, because of the abominations in Jerusalem. Those who keep pure in times of general wickedness, God will keep safe in times of general trouble and distress.

5-11 The slaughter must begin at the sanctuary, that all may see and know that the Lord hates sin most in those nearest to him. He who was appointed to protect, reported the matter. Christ is faithful to the trust reposed in him. Is he commanded by his Father to secure eternal life to the chosen remnant? He says, Of all that thou hast given me, I have lost none. If others perish, and we are saved, we must ascribe the difference wholly to the mercy of our God, for we too have deserved wrath. Let us still continue to plead in behalf of others. But where the Lord shows no mercy he does no injustice; he only recompenses men's ways.

Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not go unpunished in this end of the age of the gentile 's.

Behold, the great paradox has been revealed. The least in the Kingdom of God Church, is not a Jewish Believer Saint but, a Gentile Believer Saint. Oh Heavenly Abba Father and God Almighty Yahweh, bring your Holy and Matchless Word to pass, to which you Magnified above your Name, in these truly latter day 's of the Church and avenge and restore your choosen elect Zion, in and through your Son who is truly seated at your Right Hand in Glory now and forever more, our Mighty and Glorious Lord and near future Majesty King Supreme to come, Christ Yeshua, Glory Amen and Amen indeed. Shalom Israel Zion, Amen and Amen !

As both John the Baptist and our Holy and Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua, simultaneously closed out the Kingdom of Heaven Old Testament, so must the least in the Kingdom of God, a.k.a., the man in linen Elijah, close out the age of the Gentile 's a.k.a. the Holy Church or Holy Bride, in part unto the Gathering of the Holy Saint 's. So shall we ever be with the Lord, Glory Amen and Amen. God Bless you. Shalom Israel Zion ! All Glory, Honor and Power to our Holy and everlasting Abba Father and God Almighty Yahweh, in and through His Son who is truly seated at His Right Hand now and forever more, the one and only Alpha and Omega, the Mighty King of King 's and Lord of Lord 's, Christ Yeshua, Glory Amen and Amen indeed. Shalom.

Behold the comet of salt and light,{Hale-Bopp}, had passed through our solar system in 1997. The end of the age of the gentile's is truly near and the least of the kingdom of God,{Elijah},come's. The day of the Lord is at hand. The Apostate bride shall be cast out and put too an open and everlasting shame. The Backslididng bride shall be no more.

Come Lord Yeshua, Glory Amen and Amen ! Shalom.

Six is the number of 'man' , i believe to be appointed by God to execute judgement against sin. The 7th would have to be the son of man, the preincarnate Christ, who is able to mark out those that are righteous with an inkhorn.
