Ezekiel 20-21, Hebrews 8
7And when they say to you, ‘Why do you groan?’ you shall say, ‘Because of the news that it is coming. Every heart will melt, and all hands will be feeble; every spirit will faint, and all knees will be weak as water. Behold, it is coming, and it will be fulfilled,’” declares the Lord God.
Praise God for a new and better covenant. One that is complete and perfect, a promise kept by the God Man Jesus Christ who never sinned for even a moment. Praise Him!
Vs 25 “when iniquity shall have an end”. God is speaking of His judgment especially against the king of Israel, yet I see hope here. I long for all iniquity to end. Hebrews vs 10-13 reflect that hope. His word is in our hearts and He is merciful to our unrighteousness. I thank God for His beautiful plan.
I love what you said, Joanne, and it made think of Isaiah 61:10 and be thankful. “I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, my soul will exult in God; for He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness…❤️
God is amazing!
27 A ruin! A ruin! I will make it a ruin! The crown will not be restored until he to whom it rightfully belongs shall come; to him I will give it.’
While it is hard to read of his judgement, in his goodness God does not let evil go unpunished. In his kindness He delays even though people bear the cost of this delay also. I look forward to the day when the one who bears the crown will come to reign. Come Lord Jesus!
