Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 20:35

Discussion for Ezekiel 20

  • A disciple
    BSP; I love Ezekiel! So much insight and instruction; like the Book of Revelation! See how these same Elders (pretenders of religion) sat before the Prophet to hear his words, like people go to hear someone who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear the word of the LORD, but will not do what the Lord says to them through the Prophet! We must be doers of THE WORD!
  • BSP
    Verse 49: The older men did not take Ezekiel seriously, but thought that he was just speaking riddles or parables. We must take divine warnings and Scriptural warnings seriously.
  • Michael Hensley
    The respect of the Sabbath Day was Jewish Law, as was the Commandments, all 613,
  • Ashbrit
    God gives us new mercies daily. If you have fallen short, he give us grace so that we can repent and be forgiven of our sins. The chapters give us a reminder of what God freed the Israelites when they were in captivity and the covenant that he made them to deliver them to the promised land. It reminds us that there are consequences for not being faithful to God's word.
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    All that the Lord does;He does all things so that all men might know him. Remove yourselves from idols! Fear the Lord! Consider that God made himself known to Adam and Eve,he walked and talked with them in the Garden of Eden.After they sinned and ate from the tree of good and evil, they were afraid. Romans 11:33 "For of him and through him and to him are all things,to whom be glory forever.Amen"
  • The end-time gathering for Ezekiel 20: 33-38 is none other than America, an aviation nation a land of whirring wings Isaiah 18: 1 , which lies west of Israel beyond the rivers of Cush Ethiopia Isaiah 18: 1 Zephaniah 3: 10 , A powerful and oppressive nation Isaiah 18: 7 . Soon, the pruning annihilation of Isaiah 18: 5-6 will turn America into the wilderness of Ezekiel 20: 33-38 and Revelation 12: 5-6 and 13-17 where God will prepare a 1,260-day sanctuary for the woman whose child was caught up to God and His throne Revelation 12: 5 . This woman with a crown of twelve stars represents the children of Israel which are the end-time Jews and grafted-in gentile Christians according to John 10: 16 and Romans 11, which are His worshipers, His dispersed ones Zephaniah 3: 10 , The remnant of Israel Zephaniah 3: 13 . This pruning annihilation of America Isaiah 18: 5-6 , according to the proven Judah Ben Samuel timeline, can be expected this spring when the grape flower becomes a ripening grape Isaiah 18: 5 NASB .
