He Is There

HE IS THERE  …the name of the city from that day shall be: THE LORD IS THERE. —Ezekiel 48:35  In his attempt to describe the future glory of the nation of Israel, Ezekiel said, “It will be called Jehovah-shammah—the Lord is there.” He cannot think of anything more glorious than the fact that the Lord […]

INSPIRATION, NOT PERSPIRATION  They shall have linen turbans on their heads and linen trousers on their bodies;  they shall not clothe themselves with anything that causes sweat. —Ezekiel 44:18  When we think of sweat, we think of fleshly activity. And there might be cases where in serving the Lord we do perspire—like during building projects […]

JUSTICE

JUSTICE Yet the children of your people say, “The way of the Lord is not fair.”  But it is their way which is not fair! —Ezekiel 33:17  It’s interesting that the people in this passage are angry with God for His grace. God had declared that if a man was destined to die because of […]

Pride

You Shall Know

YOU SHALL KNOW  I, the Lord, have spoken it; it shall come to pass, and I will do it;  I will not hold back, nor will I spare, nor will I relent … and they shall know that I am the Lord. —Ezekiel 24:14, 27  God told Ezekiel of the complete destruction about to come […]

But God challenged that […]

False Hope

FALSE HOPE  So I will break down the wall you have plastered with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be uncovered; it will fall, and you shall be consumed in the midst of it. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.  —Ezekiel 13:14  The prophets […]

The Call of God

THE CALL OF GOD  And go, get to the captives, to the children of your people, and speak to them and tell them, “Thus says the Lord God,” whether they hear, or whether they refuse.  —Ezekiel 3: 11  God has called us each to a ministry within the body of Christ. Not all are apostles, […]

From Depression to Hope

From Depression to Hope  This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.

The call to mothers

The Call to Mothers  Let tears run down like a river day and night; give yourself no relief; give your eyes no rest. Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the watches; pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift your hands toward Him for the life […]
