Ezekiel #5

Ezekiel #5

Ezekiel saw the throne of God mercy seat was under the shadow o f the cherubim wings. Ekeziel was sent to his people to warn of impending danger (Eze 3:17-19). “Stumbling block” is God’s turning over to failure based on what is in the person’s heart (Eze 3:20). Warning to a righteous man gets saved (Hab 2:4, Heb 10:38). God’s disciplinary process is first rebuke, chastening, scourging (Gal 6:2, Heb 11:5-8, 2Ti 3:16). The sin unto death is the next step (1Jo 5:16, 1Co 5:1-5). Israel had idols in their hearts and fell under severe judgment (Eze 14:1-23). JUMPS FORWARD TO Eze 4:12-17. Cycles of discipline are for a nation (Lev 26:18-35). (1) Ezekiel reaches hardened people (2) Ezekiel acts out the Word. (3) Ezekiel exemplifies what Peter had to do (1Pe 3:15). (4) Ezekiel was silent but acted per God’s commands (5) God wants us to be doers of the word (Jam 1:19-22) (6) what would be different if we were convicted that the word was true. (7) Ezekiel is a powerful challenge that God wants visual aids.
