Discussion for Ezekiel 34

  • A disciple
    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.
  • Lucia szymanik
    I agree with Portia's comments. The Gospel must be preached only the Truth of God's Word.
  • Lucia szymanik
    All Pastors and Ministers must preach to the body of Christ His Church; to edify, to exhort, to build up and to correct. This is acceptable to the Lord.
  • Lucia szymanik
    I agree with Portia's comment. Pastor's today are not preaching the True Word of God to the Body of Christ except with few exceptions. There is mostly falsehood(error) that is leading the flock of God astray. All those called to Spiritual Authority hold the highest account before God and will have to give an account before Him.
