Ezekiel Chapter 9 Idolators killed

verse 1 -6

Ezekiel says that he heard the Lord call out in a loud voice ” Bring the guards of the city here, each with a weapon in his hand.” Ezekiel says he saw 6 men coming from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with a deadly weapon. He says that with the 6 men he saw a man dressed in linen with a writing kit at his side. They came in and stood beside the bronze altar.

Ezekiel says that the glory of God went up from the cherubim where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the man called to the man clothed in linen ” Go out to the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve the lament over all the detestable things that are done in it” Ezekiel said he heard the Lord tell the others ” follow him and slaughter everyone but don’t lay a hand on those that have been marked, begin at my sanctuary.” Ezekiel says they began with the elders in front of the temple.

That’s why we do the work, because when the Lord comes back we want to have the mark on our forehead that states we are apart of the church. we want to be the bride to our kinsmen(Jesus). It is in the way we walk, it is in our relationship with the Sovereign that we will receive our mark. The Lord will protect us from death as we walk upright.

verse 7-11

Ezekiel says then the Lord says “Defile the temple and fill the courts with the slain. Go”they went out and began killing throughout the city. while they were killing Ezekiel says he fell facedown and began crying ” Ah, Sovereign Lord! Are you going to destroy the entire remnant of Israel in this outpouring of your wrath on Jerusalem?” The lord answered ” The sin of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of injustice. They say the Lord has forsaken the land; the Lord does not see. So I will not look on them with pity or spare them, but I will bring down on their own heads what they have done.” Then the man dressed in linen came back and said ” I have done as you commanded.”

As I was reading this chapter, it reminded me that we are expected to do as we are commanded. Our flesh will have us to do what we want. through a relationship with God; we have to build our spirit to be stronger than our flesh, so that we can be  willed in the right direction. the best gifts that God has given us is salvation, and free will. led by a relationship with God, free will can lead you straight to Gods favor.

Now for the Important part If you are looking for Salvation google, download the free bible app,or turn your bible to Roman 10:9 Confess with your mouth tha t Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. Start a relationship with the sovereign God get in to his word. and receive your mark on your forehead God bless you

Ezekiel Chapter 8 Idolatry in the temple

Verse 1-4

Ezekiel starts off explaining to us that in the 6th year, in the 6th month on the fifth day , he was sitting with the elders of Judah. The hand of the sovereign Lord came on him. Ezekiel said he looked and he saw a figure of a man, it appeared to be fire from the waist down, and up his appearance was glowing like metal. Ezekiel said that the figure stretched out his hand and took him (Ezekiel) by the hair. He says, the spirit lifted him up between the heavens, and Earth and in visions of God he took him to Jerusalem. The spirit took him to the entrance of the north gate of the inner court, where the idol that provokes to jealousy stood. and there before him (Ezekiel) was the glory of the God of Israel. Ezekiel says that he was just the same as in his vision.

I am learning when God wants you, he calls you, and puts you right in front of what he wants of you. I could only Imagine being so upright and committed to your walk with God that he shows himself. How many of you are waiting for that moment? I know I am.

verse 5-11

Ezekiel says the Lord says to him. “Son of man , look toward the north.” Ezekiel says he looked and he saw the idol of jealousy in the entrance of the gate. He says that the Lord said to him “Son of man do you see what they are doing here – the utterly detestable things the house of Israel is doing here, things that will drive me far from my sanctuary? but you will see things that are even more detestable”

Then the Lord brought him to the entrance to the court. Ezekiel says he say a hole in the wall, and the Lord told him to dig in the wall and he dug into the wall in saw a doorway there. The Lord told Ezekiel to go into the door and see the wicked and detestable things that they are doing. Ezekiel says he went in and say all kinds of crawling things and detestable animals all the idols of the house of Israel. In  front of the idols were all the elders of Israel, and Jaazaniah son of shaphan was standing among them. Each had a censer in his hand, and a fragrant cloud of incense was rising.

My God, the Lord showed Ezekiel what was going on.  Before the Lord sends us to do something he will show us. There are no surprise when you are walking with the Lord. he will warn you of the dangers, the troubles, and the blessing if you build your relationship and allow yourself to live in the spirit and not the flesh. Our flesh will tell us many things that are not of God and it will take away what God gives us organically.

verse 12-15

The Lord said to Ezekiel “Have you seen what the elders of Israel are doing in the darkness, Each at the shrine of his own idol? ‘They say the Lord does not see us; the Lord has forsaken the land.'” the Lord says to Ezekiel “You will see them doing things even more detestable.” Ezekiel says then the Lord brought him to the entrance to the north gate of the house of the Lord, and he saw the women sitting there, mourning for Tammuz. the Lord said to Ezekiel ” Do you see this son of man? You will see things even more detestable than this.”

The Lord showed Ezekiel what the people of Israel was doing. They were stating that the Lord wasn’t there for them. We sometimes do that; when we are worrying about getting more money, and want the new car or whatever new thing that comes out. We start getting anxious about how to get it. We are doing just as the people of Israel; Idolizing things, and money. I’m not saying that you can’t want for things, I’m saying you should want for God more than you want for things. 

verse 16-18

The Lord then brought Ezekiel to the inner court of the house of the Lord, and their at the entrance to the temple, between the portico and the altar were about 25 men. With there backs toward the temple and there faces toward the east, they were bowing down to the son of the east. The Lord said to Ezekiel ” Have you seen this Son of man? Is it trivial matter for the house of Judah to do the detestable things they are doing here? Must they also fill the Land with violence and continually provoke me to anger? Look at them putting the branch to their nose! Therefore I will deal with them in anger; I will not look on them with pity or spare them. Although they shout in my ears, I will not listen to them.”

We can’t sit on the fence and think it will not anger God. we can’t move toward the things in this land and worship the things that we have in our households and think God is going to be okay. You may ask, what we can’t have nice things? Yes ! you can have nice things but don’t base the thread of who you are on what you have. The thread of who you are should be based on who you serve! God say’s this is the time for us to be faithful to our relationships with him, now is the time to release the spirit with in, and serve in our purpose. best put by the Jones family he wants it all

Now for the Important part If you are looking to begin your relationship with the sovereign God google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord,  and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Get in to the word, start a prayer life and build your relationship with the Soveriegn God.

Romans 15:5New International Version (NIV)

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,

 

32221What a scripture I couldn’t have picked a better one. This scripture came from my Bible verse of the day on youversion it was right on point because that was the direction I was going in. Exhortation God has shown me this in myself all day yesterday. where I thought I was failing in my Tests it only became a testimony and knowledge of a gift.

Today  I had no desire to help the people who upset me yesterday God kept putting me in the position to help them. I did not help because I am a christian, but because organically I like to move people to better, I like to help others achieve their goals in great positive ways, I encourage others because it feels good, it feels natural to me. I remember back in my day they called it the gift of gab. I’ve learned it’s the gift of Exhortation to encourage others as God Encourages me getting over the hump.

I tried my best not help, but it seemed by the end the day that’s all I did. and yesterday I was upset by the lack of gratitude, today I realized I don’t do the things I do for gratitude I do it because I am a helper and I like to help people reach their goals.what ever it may be. At the end we’re going to put a praise on it, so everyone knows In whose name was the unity achieved in. It was Gods grace that I walked into work without anger. it was also Gods grace that showed me it’s what I do and I shouldn’t stop helping and encouraging and using my voice due to actions of man. It was Gods grace that this scripture popped up.

So I call out you guys to use this scripture in your life encourage 5 people help 5 people push pass the pressure and enjoy the peace of helping a brethren

God bless you guys

Romans 12:1

New International Version (NIV)

A Living Sacrifice

12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Amen this scripture means so much to me, it’s why I am  writing this blog and why I do a lot of the things I do. I am honoring God through my works he is so awesome that I offer my body to him as a living sacrifice so that he can use me for his good.

The great thing that God has done was give us the opportunity to release ourselves and allow him to use us in our weakness. giving up everything we do in praise

As I am watching my sons begin a new journey in their  young lives If they didn’t know the Lord I would be worried, this year I’m excited for my sons they are going out into another  level and have nothing but great Giants to conquer.

I tell you the Lord wants you to allow him to conquer those Giants with you. Don’t let anxiety win, and grab your happy by the neck. What we have here on this Earth is time, it’s how you spend it. why not live it to the best. that’s how the Lord wants you to be striving for greatness and showing how great he is.

That doesn’t mean having the best Job based on society it means having the best Job to you that caters to your gifts,  don’t get me wrong if you want to be better at your profession he will work through you there too. but what ever it is, do it for the Lord. Do it in Praising make it great as and offering to the Lord.

Be joyful be Blessed
