Ezekiel 12-14 God had Ezekiel pantomime the end of Jerusalem to the captive elders in Babylon. Instead of watching and learning, the hardhearted exiles asked: “What are you doing?” God chose Ezekiel as an object lesson for them about their king, Jerusalem, and their Temple. The elders didn’t want to hear any of this, so they blocked their eyes, ears, and heart. Instead of listening, they charged him with lying because they only wanted to have their ears tickled. They talked amongst themselves; who should we believe? Did not the prophet Hananiah say this would be over in two years? [Jer 28:3] Ezekiel reminded them that Hananiah lied and died. How are his words working for you now?
How does this relate to us today? God sent Jesus as his object lesson with parables, miracles, and sermonettes with one choice: Jesus is the Way, The Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to God except by Him. [Jn 14:6] Yet, People refuse the life-giving message of salvation with many excuses. God made it clear: we are all sinners; none is righteous, no, not one. [Rom 3:10]
God sent His Son because He doesn’t tickle our ears with false prophecy. There is a judgment coming. Have you chosen Him as Savior, Lord, King, Priest, and Prophet?
