Ezekiel - Chapter 7

Ezekiel 7:4 - "Then you will know that I am the Lord." God had tried over the years through the evidence of creation, the blessings of being His people and the history of the nation and God's interaction with Abraham, Moses, David, etc to show them that he was God. But they didn't' seem to get it. Now it came down to making the point through wrath and punishment.

Ezekiel 7:19 - We are a wealthy nation, but our wealth is worthless if God is coming against us. Even if he does not come, it cannot make us guilt free. It cannot cleanse our consciences. Even non-Christians understand this. They understand that money cannot make you happy, it cannot give you love and relationships, it cannot heal our hearts. Yet we still run after it as if it could. We chase things thinking that having toys will make us happy. Instead, just as in Ezekiel's day, in becomes "the stumbling block of [our] iniquity."

Ezekiel 7:25 - "When anguish comes, they will seek peace, but there shall be none. (ESV)" Wow.
