KNOW THE TRUTH - "He has Spoken, Who will Hear?" January 1st, 2018

Excerpt - The Prophet: Ezekiel was a Hebrew prophet of the exile. He was of a priestly family (aristocracy), and spoke with the eloquence of education. He was raised up in the last years of Judah’s independence. He was carried away early in his life (deported to captivity), into Babylon, with the Jehoiachin deportation. He came to dwell by the irrigation canal “Chebar”, which connected the Tigris with the Euphrates River above Babylon.

Approximately five years after his deportation God called Ezekiel to speak to His people. He exercised his charge from the age of thirty until he was fifty-two. This made him a younger contemporary of Jeremiah and Zephaniah. Daniel would already be in the king’s court and working as God’s voice to the king.

His Homeland: Israel had already been taken into Assyrian captivity over a hundred years earlier. Babylon, having conquered Assyria, has now taken possession of these captives as well. Judah, having weakened itself significantly without the support of God (due to idolatry), was nothing more than a vassal state. They had already felt the wrath of Babylon in the first assault and deportation, which would make one think they would sober up and turn back to God. Alas, they plunged further away from God and subsequently a far worse situation.

Ezekiel 5:6She has rebelled against My judgments by doing wickedness more than the nations, and against My statutes more than the countries that are all around her; for they have refused My judgments, and they have not walked in My statutes.’”
