Morning Light – August 18th, 2017 – Ezekiel 28:  Who Was Perfect in the Garden of God?

Morning Light – Ezekiel 28 Today: [Ezekiel 28] Who Was Perfect in the Garden of God? Ez. 28 is a classic chapter, paired with Isa. 14 to suggest as theologians maintain what the origin of Satan is. There is however a question to be considered because v. 15 of our chapter declares that this person was “perfect” in the garden of God. The question then must be asked who was perfect in the garden of God and then iniquity was found in him? We often relegate responsibility for the fall to the ursurpation of Satan against the throne, but it … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – August 17th, 2017 – Ezekiel 27:  Dealing with Partial Fulfillment of a Word from God

Morning Light – Ezekiel 27 Today: [Ezekiel 27] Dealing with Partial Fulfillment of a Word from God. In Ezekiel 27 we see the prophet continuing to address the coming destruction of the city of Tyre. The word that is given was fulfilled in part against this city almost immediately. It was actually almost 300 years before the word came to pass in totality. When we receive a word from God, we often get frustrated when it doesn’t come to pass on our timetable. Because of this we lose out on what God has for us. This chapter demonstrates the need … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – August 15th, 2017 – Ezekiel 25:  Are You an Ammonite?

Morning Light – Ezekiel 25 Today: [Ezekiel 25] Are You an Ammonite? In this chapter, Ezekiel prophesies against the Ammonites, Moabites, Edom and the Philistines. We have to remember that for us, this is more than biblical history. Each one of these nations represents an attitude, a posture or an inner stronghold that can influence our lives. As we see the judgment of God against these ancient enemies of Judah they are a caution to us not to find anything in our lives compatible to what they represent.

Morning Light – August 14th, 2017 – Ezekiel 24:  Shouldn’t We Just Dispense with the Prophetic Altogether?

Morning Light – Ezekiel 24 Today: [Ezekiel 24] Shouldn’t We Just Dispense with the Prophetic Altogether? In Ez. 24 we find the prophet (unwisely by modern standards) setting dates for events to come. Furthermore, the things that he sees, the people find to be very disconcerting. Ezekiel obeys God, and in obeying troubles the entire population of God’s people in captivity in Chebar. He sets a date. He predicts things that are not desirable. Should’nt we just set the prophetic aside when we experience such things? What does such a thought say about the captives at Chebar and what does … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Ezekiel 23 Today: [Ezekiel 23] Jerusalem and Samaria – Sisters in Harlotry. In this chapter Ezekiel receives the word of the Lord that equates the holy city with the polluted, sinful and now destroyed city of Samaria in the north, because the people of God have sinned after the example of the 10 vanquished tribes of Israel, now destroyed and led away captive. This wasn’t how they viewed themselves, therefore God declares their position before Him through Ezekiel. In reading this chapter we can only put ourselves in their place, would we be capable of the transparency … (click link or title to continue)

The people are to be as dross that will be exposed by great heat to be scattered to the winds among the nations.

Morning Light – Ezekiel 20 Today: [Ezekiel 20] Are You Capable of Repentance? In Ezekiel 20 a group of elders come to inquire of Ezekiel. The prophet knows that the leaders before him are convinced that they have done nothing to warrant the rigors of captivity that they have been suffering. They feel they have fulfilled all that God expects and now they want an explanation as to why God hasn’t delivered them yet. Instead Ezekiel recites the history of the people’s disobediences and demands the elders to repent of their own idolatry. In the end, the elders completely don’t … (click link or title to continue)
