Morning Light – July 24th, 2017 – Ezekiel 9:  Beyond the 5-fold Ministry

Morning Light – Ezekiel 9 Today: [Ezekiel 9] Beyond the 5-fold Ministry? Today in many church settings, the idea of a 5-fold ministry is embraced theoretically or historically but very little in evidence. Mostly the church recognizes pastors and evangelists, but recoils from the idea of apostles and prophets. As challenging as this might be, Ez. 9 goes a step further, suggesting a 6th ministry characterized by a writing gift that has hardly been identified, yet may be one of the most important giftings coming forth in the information age that we are a part of. A “don’t miss” Morning … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – July 21st, 2017 – Ezekiel 8:  The Other Jesus

Morning Light – Ezekiel 8 Today: [Ezekiel 8] The Other Jesus. In this chapter of Ezekiel, the prophet is shown three visions of hidden idolatry in the temple at Jerusalem. Each of these visions exposes the ancient, the honorable and consecrated people of the city involved in hidden pagan ritual that point to what Paul called “another Jesus”. This same error is prevalent in modern Christian culture and gives us cause for sober reflection regarding the authenticity of our own faith toward God.

Morning Light – Ezekiel 5 Today: [Ezekiel 5] Ezekiel Gets a Haircut. In this chapter Ezekiel is instructed to cut his hair and beard to perform a prophetic act. Some of his hair is burned, some of it is further cut with a knife and some of it is cast to the wind. This all represents the fate of the people of Jerusalem in the aftermath of the Babylonian invasion. For us this is something more than sacred history. There is instruction for us that influences how we posture ourselves in the things of God to avoid experiencing like judgments … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Ezekiel 3 Today: [Ezekiel 3] God Makes Ezekiel’s Forehead Like Flint. In this chapter Ezekiel eats the scroll given to him by God. He is then sent to a people described as a rebellious house. Ezekiel has much difficulty facing this but is warned that blood is on his hands if he refuses to obey. There are times that we will face such difficult circumstance.

Morning Light – July 13th, 2017 – Ezekiel 2: The Call of Ezekiel

Morning Light – Ezekiel 2 Today: [Ezekiel 2] The Call of Ezekiel. Chapter 2 of Ezekiel describes a conversation with God’s voice out of the vision of the wheel within the wheel.

After this experience, there will be no question in Ezekiel’s heart regarding his commissioning. What is your call? We are told in 1 Peter 1:10.
