Chapter 3 Ezekiel eats the scroll. He is declared a watchman. Ezekiel 4 he makes a siege works of clay. Chapter 5 he illustrates the destruction of Jerusalem and the remnant. Chapter 7 -“the end has come”. Righteousness and Justice are Gods character (Psa 89:14). <U>Ezekiel Chapter 7 Outline</U>: The final disaster (Eze 7:1-9); demolition of pride (Eze 7:10-15); judgment on wealth idolatry and religion (Eze 7:16-22); the grand finale (Eze 7:23-27). Judgment falls on the unsaved, discipline falls on believers. Discipline is for correction - from reproof to premature death - is motivated by divine love. God deals with us in Mercy (Rom 2:6) If you sow to the spirit you reap the Spirit, but to the flesh, destruction (Gal 6:7, 2Co 11:15, Jer 17:10). If we judge ourselves, He will not judge (1Co 11:11). False prophets always preach an acceptable message (Eze 7:25). God takes the word from those He destroyed (Eze 7:26, Amo 8:11).
