Ezekiel 33-34, Hebrews 12
Wow, what a fulfillment of this passage our Lord Jesus is. The prince David that comes to rule, he said of the crowds that He has compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And truly he has been a good shepherd who leads his flock beside quiet waters.
12As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.
28Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, 29for our God is a consuming fire.
So amazing to know the kingdom of God endures forever and can’t be shaken. Our faith is built on solid ground. I need to remember this when I begin to feel overwhelmed by events in my own life.
Beautiful vision of our Great Rescuer.
I can’t get over how much my heart is being moved lately by God’s Word! Ezekiel 34 – relates to John 10- when Jesus tells us He is our good shepherd! I love the whole chapter of John 10!! Then Heb 12 has been my life scripture- (after my argument with yesterday’s verse) When i wanted to see results with my eyes- i memorized and personalized Heb 12:2-3. –I will fix my eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of my faith – who for the JOY set before him, endured the CROSS -scorning it’s shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. I will consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men so that I may not grow weary or lose heart. –Do not grow weary dear friends!! If only we can see the JOY on the other side of our crosses- like Jesus did!! But we have the advantage! He did it alone! But HE will not leave us!! Oh praise Jesus our powerful shepherd who asks nothing more for us than to hear his voice- fix our eyes- and to follow his steps from here to our home with Him!! I’m so grateful! Thank you for bearing with my many words these past weeks!! But God is filling me up to overflowing with His amazing Word!!
Hi AnnieB, your comment today touched my heart because it shouted out with joy the way God is working in your life. Also, your experience is similar to mine. When I first read Hebrews 12 many years ago, it opened my eyes and my heart to God’s truth and His amazing plan that has been unfolding throughout history, which is truly His Story! I memorized the whole chapter and this chapter often comes into my mind as I read my Bible. I feel blessed to count you as a sister in Christ and fellow clinger to Hebrews 12. May our Heavenly Father continue to fill you to overflowing. I’ll look forward to reading you comments in the future.
How fun that we are both Anne/ie! Thank you for sharing! Now that I’m a little older i’m beginning finally to find my joy in the Word- and less in the circumstances of my life. There are still some ugly situations- but they are in His hands. He saw joy in his ugly situations. I thank Him for continuing to train me to do the same! I’ll be praying for you now, too- for a Christmas season filled with His presence!
Thanks Annie ❤️. May your joy be full in Christ.
Similar to Ezekiel 33:6, we all as believers have the responsibility to share the gospel with others so that they might be saved! We are the watchmen and we know what is coming so we must tell others.
❤️❤️. This is something I must take to heart now!
