Ezekiel 20 Have you ever chosen a gift only for it to be disregarded? That is how God sees His gift of redemption to the Israelites. He had taken the children of Israel out of bondage to a land flowing with milk and honey. They wanted a king, so He gave them a king. No matter what God gave them, they wanted more and still were ungrateful.
Now it is in the 7th year of captivity, and they were whining; when will this end? In Jerusalem, they had heard Hananiah say two years. Jeremiah reminded Hananiah that God had not sent him. The captivity will last not 2 yrs. but 70 yrs.! So now the elders are sitting before Ezekiel and want to inquire of God what lay ahead. God says, “I will not be inquired of you!” In other words, my heart is broken. The last straw was when you said: “we want to be like the nations, like the people of the world, who serve wood and stone.” [Ezek 20:32]
Have you spurned the gift of salvation that God gave you? Listen to Acts 3:19 “Repent and turn back so that your sins may be wiped out, so that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.”
