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.
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
