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.

This chapter demonstrates the need … (click link or title to continue)

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)
