Ezekiel - Chapter 12

Ezekiel 12:7 - This reminds me of some the 'crazy' street preachers you might see downtown. Acting out what is coming against Israel, pretending to go into exile, even digging through the wall. What must people have thought? Yet, it was God who instructed him. I wonder how many 'crazy' people are on orders from God to do what they do to deliver us a message? It's easy to dismiss them all.

Ezekiel 12:15 -"And they shall know that I am the Lord, ..." Again, God must prove himself to be God through judgement. (again in v. 20)

Ezekiel 12:21-28 - They had already been warned of the judgements to come, but since it had been a long time coming, they assumed i was still a long way off. Here we are in the same boat. It can be easy to assume because Jesus has been a long time coming, He's still a long way off or isn't actually coming at all. But He said He'd come, and He promised that it'd be a surprise. I don't want to get complacent like Israel was, dismissing what has been promised as not relevant from me, but for some future time. It may be decades or centuries away, or it may be next week.

Amen. The bible says that Jesus will come like a theif in the night. It also says that if we are prepared, he won't come like a theif to us. I think that it is hard to tell if it will be next week, tonight, or another thousand years, but as a prepared Christian, I won't be caught off guard.

I wonder how we would genuinly react to somebody who litterally was obey God's word and it made them seem like they were crazy. I ponder if we DO worry about looking crazy (street preaching and so forth) and hold back ourselves. I think we all mostly do a little. I think since this is the age of reason, persecution will come in the form of questioning someones sanity and ability to keep oneself contained and resonable. In fear of having our lives stripped from us because of what seems like insanity (I think that I am projecting. This is something that i have put a great deal of thought into) Anyway, Ezek seriously went through some stuff for the Father; what less should we do, considering we have the power of the name of Christ and access to the Holy Spirit?
