Prophet Ezekial encountered angelic beings and the presence of God around 30 years old. These 4 angelic beings had 4 faces. The spirit of the Lord was presenting himself to Ezekial for a mission. The Lord appeared through the appearance of fire just like he did with Moses and the burning bush.
The Lord chose Ezekial to speak to the children of Isreal about their rebellious ways. He would inform them about the destruction of Jerusalem and restoration to the land of Isreal. Many of them were hard-hearted. This is a time God is furious of his people ways. They were still in Babylon at this time. Just Imagine the fury God has toward our generation today with all the sin being perfromed.
God warned Ezekial many of times to not be afraid of them. That many would be stubborn and only wanted to hear what they wanted to hear. They rejected God so he shouldn’t take it personal if they reject him. In those times, people would try to down prophets, and some would even hurt them that was speaking for God.
It’s the message of Christ that people are still rejecting today. The kind of immorality that goes on in America alone is being judged til this day. Many is working off the flesh instead of through the spirit. Working off the flesh is commiting adultery, fornication, uncleanness, idolatory, witchcraft, wrath, strife, envying, jealousy, hatred, murders, drunkedness and so much more.
The Soverign Lord spoke through Ezekial and still speaking today. Anyone who turn from righteousness is relasing themselves from God.
The book of Ezekial discussed the destruction and restoration of Gods people. God doesn’t like when we are disobedient. He still brought Prophet Ezekial around during the babylonian exile to tell his people to stop sinning. He had to have faith and trust the Lord in all that he instructed him to do.
The Lord led the house of Isreal into captivity for their wrong doings. Afterwards he gave them a chance to be forgiven and cleanse through offerings and sacrifices. Offerings was done to make reconcilation for the House of Isreal with Lord. The Lord also divided the land for inheritences between the 12 tribes of Isreal.
The Book of Ezekial taught me that there is always a reaping date for whatever we sow. As long as we repent, follow God laws and statutes, he is willing to forgive us, bless us and allow us to prosper.
