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.

    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.

    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"

    THIS CHAPTER IS TALKING ABOUT THE SECOND EXODUS OF THE BLACK PEOPLE THAT WERE SCATTERED ACROSS THE WORLD BY SLAVERY FOR BREAKING YAHUAH COVENANT. YAHUSHA IS GOING TO GATHER THEM OUT OF EVERY NATION THEY WERE EXILED TO AND BRING THEM INTO THE WILDERNESS AGAIN AND WILL MAKE A NEW COVENANT WITH THEM AND BRING THEM BACK HOME TO YISRAEL. SHALOM
