Ezekiel 13-15, Hebrews 5
6They have seen false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘Declares the Lord,’ when the Lord has not sent them, and yet they expect him to fulfill their word.
23therefore you shall no more see false visions nor practice divination. I will deliver my people out of your hand. And you shall know that I am the Lord.”
Though Israel performs such heinous deeds that God says people will understand the severity of judgment as right, one verse tells us that God already has redemption in mind. Though Noah, Daniel, and Job would only be able to be spares themselves, God says He will make the people of Israel again to be His people and would be their God. May we rejoice that it is only possible by the love of God through the perfect God Man Christ Jesus.
Ezekiel 16 was very difficult and personally left me feeling raw and exposed and ashamed…. thank GOD I know my salvation does NOT depend on me and my own works! OH GOSH, I CANNOT EXPRESS ENOUGH “HALLALUJIAHS” when I realize that BEING NAKED AND ASHAMED is not where my story ends! Thank You JESUS, MY ROCK AND MY REDEEMER.
14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.
Because of practice…sometimes I wonder if I’m still a child on infant food or if I’m an adult on solid food pertaining to my faith and spiritual walk. Discernment is one of the hardest things for me and it’s at moments where I’m unsure of where God is calling me that I feel like a baby sucking from a bottle verses an adult slicing into a tender steak. Lord help me discern your will with eyes focused on heaven.
