Discussion for Ezekiel 22

  • A disciple
    "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Reading carefully through every line of this Word we should be sickened and tremble at the fact that we have been guilty of all these things and have not obeyed to walk worthy of the great mercy extended to us; and our time is at the door!

    Jehovah God expressed his wrath against those who were misusing their power, committing fraud, taking advantage of widows and orphans, murdering, and engaging in various form of sexual depravity. These ones were destroyed and we can be assured that Jehovah feels the same disgust today when he sees those who commit these acts and he will execute his judgment upon them.

    It beats my imagination how with so many preachers and ministers,the burden for souls in the heart of God have not yet been lifted.why are there no men who would stand in the gap when there are men here and there?it is because though men are present every where,they are not available for God to use them.
