Discussion for Ezekiel 3

  • Richard
    God filled Ezekiel with his words...words of hope and truth.
  • A disciple
    Steve; AMEN! They are the false prophets and false teachers which the Lord and all His servants warned us about. The Lord hath not sent them; but they make this people to trust in a lie. (Jeremiah 28) They are allowed because God proves the hearts of people, to know if they will obey Him or not.

    EZEKIEL 3:18 WHEN I SAY UNTO THE WICKED THOU SHALT SURLEY DIE AND THOU GIVEST HIM --- NOT WARNING --- NOR SPEAKEST TO WARN THE WICKED FROM HIS WICKED FROM HIS WICKED WAY TO SAVE HIS LIFE THE SAME WICKED MAN SHALL DIE IN HIS INIQUITY BUT HIS BLOOD WILL I REQUIRE AT THINE HAND **** BRUCE AND ALL **** ARE YOU WARNING PEOPLE OR MAKING EXCUSES FOR THEM IN CORRUPTION ****
  • A disciple
    God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his wicked ways, quit sinning, and do right; that he may live. If the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits wickedness, except he repent and cease the sinning and return to the LORD, he will die in his sins, and perish; worse than if he'd never known the way of righteousness. The soul that sins shall die.

    Verse 18: If we fail to warn the wicked about their course and they die, we are blood guilty before Jehovah God.
  • Michel
    Ezekiel was grateful to serve Jehovah as a prophet. We went to have the same attitude.
