    Dear Cathy,

    A Christian is a Christ follower. That's the literal definition. It's not a one time event, but an active lifestyle. To follow someone is an action. The opposite of that is to not follow or to do nothing. God won't force anyone to be with Him in heaven- He gave everyone freewill to choose for themselves what their priority is. In the New Testament, Jesus spoke a lot of parables about how most people will go to hell and few people will be saved (narrow is the gate). He gave a lot of warnings to people including his followers to avoid sin and keep His commandments. If someone wants to spend eternity and be in heaven this isn't something to be taken lightly. Sin is no joke.

    This life is nothing compared to eternity and people often treat this life like it's everything, like they want power, money, status and that will 'make them happy'. Even though this has been known for countless years people still pursue it. The Bible says such pursuits are worthless. We should invest our treasures in heaven, not on earth. We are to be a light to the world in love and through our actions, not follow the world in sin.

    While genuine Christians are imperfect and sinners and saved by grace, that doesn't mean we should not genuinely try to follow Jesus and obey His commandments. There are lots of verses I could quote in support of this, but these are easily found in reading through the Bible. Romans explains this in greater detail, as does James, etc. God bless.

    Not one of us are sin free or, I guess pure, as some of you say. Do people who go to church every week and try to live a life with lots of church, Bible reading, studies, without drugs or alcohol believe that living this way, asking God for forgiveness, and being baptized makes you pure? Do you believe you will be we welcome in Heaven by the Lord over someone who doesn't go to church, has sex without marriage, uses & addicted to drugs, someone such as myself? It seems to be the belief by lots of religions is why I'm asking. One of you made a comment seeming to insinuate this as well. Ty

    The histories of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, the old and the new give us a glimpse to what was done to those who disobey the covenants and commandments of God. Ezekiel 7, represents God's wrath on his disobedient children. Then and also now. Ezekiel 7 is describing the great tribulation upon the earth.

    From the very beginning, in the garden of Eden to this our present time. Those who were disobedient to the holy precepts were utterly destroyed, it will be done today also. Ezekiel a Prophet of old foresaw our future and he wrote it as evidence for us. We are being forewarned of what is coming, if only we repent and turn away from doing what is evil, only then, we will obtain mercy from God and the nations will be healed from such severe calamity.

    The scriptures tells us that it will be the same as Noah's time and as Sodom and Gomorrah, this was an example for all humanity to learn from. There will be only a handful of righteous people that will be saved, out of all the earth, this is something to seriously meditate profoundly. We have to go back to the first love, God loved us first, therefore the creation. God chastises his children because he loves them. God wants his children to love him back by doing so, we are to obey him.

    He is calling us through dreams and visions, mostly now for his second coming. He is coming soon! We are to keep watch and be prepared by repentance, baptism and in keeping all of his commandments. For anything that is impure will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. God is love, for who would give up his only son to die for all humanity?(including the sinners, but only if they repent.) God bless those who obey him.

    The Great Babylon will be the central financial hub of the world. The USA is not the central hub today.
  • A disciple on Ezekiel 7 - 7 years ago
    "They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goes to the battle: for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof." On one level, we just can't seem to understand how most people can be so indifferent to all the terrible things unfolding in the world right now. How can they not care, and not want to know? As restraint is being taken away, the righteous is becoming the prey!
  • A disciple on Ezekiel 7 - 7 years ago
    We must know and understand, that if God has so done to His own people Israel; He will in no wise spare the Nations which have done the same evil, and filled their land with "Bloody Crimes." Read every verse of this chapter, and know, that it is certainly coming upon the United States, as it is already started on the "Christian" countries of Europe. Only repentance and faith in Jesus will save us.
  • Stephen F. Zielski on Ezekiel 7 - 7 years ago
    Our Nation had turned its back on the only True and Living God Almighty Yahweh along with His only Son who Lives and Abides now and forever our Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua with Holy Written Word of Life the Holy Bible. They are and have been in bed with the woman of the seed of the serpent who was and is today. High Treason Treachery Tyranny are truly upon all of us WOE ! There is HOPE.

    Patty, Almighty God, the LORD and only SAVIOUR will pour his wrath on the children of disobedience in America, the great whore, beginning with NYC as the whole world descends into spiritual damnation. Only JESUS CHRIST can and will save your soul from this hell if you receive Him. Blessings to all, specially those who receive the Holy Spirit of JESUS to day. JESUS SAVES. Amen Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

    Verses 11 to 13, the rod of wickedness is a nuclear missile. Both buyers and sellers of these weapons will ultimately suffer the end result of worldwide nuclear fallout and nuclear winter.

    The bit about the evil ones throwing their silver and gold in the streets, it is good to know that the metals are used as money, up until the very end. It is the evil greedy bastiges who cheat everyone else out of their gold and silver, and amass Hugh piles of it, who suddenly realize that their greed for wealth is what is now causing their destruction. They fail at trying to buy off the wrath of God, and realize that money just won 't do the trick this time. This passage is not to be construed that gold and silver in themselves are evil or worthless, but that it is the evil greed for it that caused the judged to do evil things to acquire it. Money in the form of gold and silver is the most honest form of currency the world has ever known, and that is why the wise men gave it as gifts to baby Jesus when He was born. They sure didn 't give him FRN 's !
  • Joseph Labonte on Ezekiel 7 - 9 years ago
    Look at Israel today! And in men 's own words HISTORY repeats it 's self. We might take a hard look at the land thats called Israel today and those whom surround it.... The tribes of Ishmael, a wild men. look to Jerusalem, what has happened, what has happened? It 's a mirror image. Judgement comes! Should we not pray YHWH repent of HIS Judgments, and turn speedily. The people of the entire earth have made HIS creation a dug heap! I personally am ashamed,each and everyone of us are guilty in one way or another. When YHWH speak 's HIS words LIVE, their ALIVE, when people speak their words die just as their bodies. We shall know HIM, YHWH.

    It shows a complete pain of the holy spirit.
  • Josh on Ezekiel 7:19 - 11 years ago
    I think it means that these people had a good life and became careless. When we are well fed, plenty of money, that can easily be a stumbling block. But I do not know why� because we do not need God when we have everything.
