Ezekiel #4

Ezekiel #4

Jesus is the flashing forth of the Glory of God (Heb 1:3, Joh 1:14). Of His fullness have we received and grace upon grace (Joh 1:16). Righteousness begins with confession; our life is to glorify Him (2Co 3:18, 2Co 4:17). Charge to Ezekiel -- because he saw the glory of God. (Eze 12:1-2). Moses warns Israel; so did Jesus (Deut 29, Mat 13). Eyes of the Lord looking for loyal hearts; judgment begins at His temple, his people (2Ch 3:9, 1Pe 4:17). Glory – unchanging value of things in God’s eyes. Jesus Christ has double glory: the nature of God is revealed in Him; the true nature of man as God intended it (Joh 7:39, Joh 13:31 Joh 17:5). Holiness love, compassion, mercy were revealed at the cross. Prophesies – Live under Rome (Dan 2:40, Dan 7:7 Dan 9:24-29); He was a Nazarene (Isa 9:1-2); Born in Bethlehem (Mic 5:1-2); was of the House of David (2Sa 7:12-16); time of birth (Dan 9:24-26 Gal 4:4); Wrapped in swaddling clothes in a manger (Isa 9:6-7); Commonplace person (Isa 53:1-3); would reconcile mankind (Isa 57:19). Herod was evil and his purpose could be no higher than human thing. God works behind the scenes (Luk 2:1-3). The road to glory is the ridicule of men. Joseph and Mary were ridiculed due to her pregnancy even in their home town Bethlehem (Luk 2:4). Go’ds glory is focused on Jesus Christ; He was first born (Luk 2:6-7, Rom 8:29, Col 1:15, Col 1:18, Heb 1:6, Heb 12:23). Jesus flesh was the veil of His glory (Heb 10:20). God picks the lowly (1Co 1:26-28). The glory of God is revealed to the pure of heart (Luk 2:8-14). The announcement of glory was to faithful shepherds (Joh 14:21). We are invited to enter God’s glory (Luk 2:15-20).
