Discussion for Ezekiel 34

    I agreed with pastor that our leaders today only think about themselves not the people that they lead. God told Ezekiel tell your people to turn away from their old habits and get ready from get a plan for them.God had been begging his people don’t miss it for he always had a planned for you that manifested itself with the baby Jesus. God said a coming to be a shepherd to my people

    Heavenly Father knows all the intent behind our actions and thoughts. What is in our hearts need not be spoken as much as the example we set for those around us. We need not worry about the intent behind others so much as we do our best to be a good servant of Christ. We have free agency that comes with blessings or trials. Those trials are opportunities for our spiritual growth. Growth is good!!

    This Chapter of Ezekiel 34 is absolutely beautiful. I will copy this and pass it out to people. Everyone needs to read this 34th Chapter of Ezekiel. The church leaders clergy will answer to Great God Of Israel. They will not be able to hide. HalleluYAH!

    I think there is sometimes too readily used the symbolism of things spoken of in the Bible; when it should better be understood by its intended meaning first. The Scriptures of the Prophets were primarily directed toward Israel; a real people, who really did the things written about them; and who are to this day really still like that! They are in the world among the Nation for a testimony to GOD.
  • A disciple
    Sisters in Christ; You are absolutely right with relating this to Pastors of Churches; but look closely also at whom exactly the LORD is speaking this; and remember the parable of the wicked husbandmen, who murdered the Heir and usurped control of the LORD's vineyard, the House of Israel; in whom you all have been grafted in through faith in Christ. This should open up your understanding to more.
  • A disciple
    While we easily see the use in describing a mutual relation between those to whom the Word is first directed, and their modern-day counterparts; it is in a spirit of error that men are willing to sacrifice (slaughter) what is morally right, for the advancement of their own base gain and for their Satanic need of being recognized by men as a "holy one" and a "very religious and influential" man.
