Happy hump day I pray that you all are excited about what God is doing and your lives and moving for his purpose. Thanks for joining the study.
My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant og the Sovereign God, there is nothing better than working for the kingdom. Some of the ways that I serve God is this bible study blog where we go over the books of the bible. Also the Lord has allowed me to have a second blog and broadcast called Journey In Praise this is where I go over lessons learned through out a day, week, or life time. my handle of Periscope is @WilhelminaLundy and you can also Join in on YouTube and Facebook at @journeyinpraise. The Lord has also allowed me the opportunity to pray for others so if you are looking to be added to the prayer wall you can email me your name and request at firstname.lastname@example.org Amen. Okay, let’s get in to the word
Ezekiel Chapter 15 Jerusalem, a useless vine
verse 1 – 5
Ezekiel tells us that the word of the Lord came to him and said: Son of man, how is the wood of a vine better than any branch on a tree in the forest? Is wood ever taken from it to make anything useful? Do they make pegs from it to hang things on?And after it is thrown on the fire as fuel and the fire burns both ends and chars the middle, is it then useful for anything? If it was not useful for anything when it was whole, how much less can it be made into something useful when the fire has burned it and it is charred?
Lets look at the vine as a person who is broken and then they go about their life not seeking God but sinning and going after anything that is not of God. that is how we look at a charred useless vine. broken down and burned out. God can’t do anything for you if you are sitting in the fire.
verse 6 – 8
Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: As I have given the wood of the vine among trees of the forest as fuel for the fire, so will I treat the people living in Jerusalem. I will set my face against them. Although they have come out of the fire, the fire will yet consume them. And when I set my face against them you will know that I am Lord. I will make the land desolate because they have been unfaithful declares the Sovereign.
The Lord says he turns his face against the people of Jerusalem. that is how he sees them useless. This is one of the reasons we repent for unknown and known sin when we pray. when we send up our prayers to God we want them to smell sweet as burnt offering not charred vines. we want to be faithful to the sovereign and if we can’t because for a moment we were weak than we want to repent for those sins. Glory to God ! we are thankful for Jesus Christ that we can go to the father. Amen!
Now for the important part, If you are looking for Salvation google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.Amen! get yourself in to an amazing relationship with the Sovereign Lord, study the word of God and allow the Sovereign to move in your life. God Bless you
