To all,

GOD has the power to do all things !!

HE will mold us and change us according to our hearts.

Work out our own salvations by knowing what truly lies in our hearts.

We all sin, no matter how " good" we make think we are. But the sin we end up doing, may we never do from the heart.

I pray GOD has all understand this today and forevermore.

Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:

EZEKIAL 11

1 The spirit lifted me up and brought me to the east gate of the Temple of Yahweh, the gate that looks eastwards. There at the entrance to the gate stood twenty-five men, among whom I saw Jaazaniah son of Azzur and Pelatiah son of Benaiah, leaders of the people.

2 He said to me, 'Son of man, these are the wicked schemers who are spreading their bad advice through this city.

3 They say, "There will be no house-building yet awhile. The city is the cooking pot and we are the meat."

4 So prophesy against them, prophesy, son of man!'

5 The spirit of Yahweh fell on me, and he said to me, 'Say, "Yahweh says this: I know what you are saying, House of Israel, I know how insolent you are.

6 You have filled this city with more and more of your victims; you have strewn its streets with victims.

7 And so the Lord Yahweh says this: Your victims, whom you have put in it, are the meat, and the city is the cooking pot; but I shall take you out of it.

8 You are afraid of the sword and I shall bring the sword down on you -- declares the Lord Yahweh-

9 and I shall take you out of it and hand you over to foreigners and bring you to justice;

10 you will fall by the sword on the soil of Israel; I shall execute justice on you, and you will know that I am Yahweh.

11 This city will be no cooking pot for you, nor will you be the meat inside; I shall execute justice on you on the soil of Israel;

12 and you will know that I am Yahweh, whose laws you have not obeyed and whose judgements you have not kept; instead, you have adopted the customs of the nations round you." '

13 Now as I was prophesying, Pelatiah son of Benaiah dropped dead. I fell to the ground and cried out, 'Ah,Lord Yahweh, are you going to annihilate the remnant of Israel?'

14 The word of Yahweh was then addressed to me as follows,

15 'Son of man, to your brothers one and all, to your kinsfolk and to the whole House of Israel, the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, "Keep well away from Yahweh. This country has now been made over to us!"

16 So say, "The Lord Yahweh says this: Yes, I have sent them far away among the nations and I have dispersed them to foreign countries; and for a while I have been a sanctuary for them in the country to which they have gone."

17 So say, "The Lord Yahweh says this: I shall gather you back from the peoples, I shall collect you in from the countries where you have been scattered and give you the land of Israel.

18 When they come back, they will purge it of all its horrors and loathsome practices.

19 I shall give them a single heart and I shall put a new spirit in them; I shall remove the heart of stone from their bodies and give them a heart of flesh,

20 so that they can keep my laws and respect my judgements and put them into practice. Then they will be my people and I shall be their God.

21 But those whose hearts are set on their horrors and loathsome practices I shall repay for their conduct -- declares the Lord Yahweh." '

22 The winged creatures then raised their wings and the wheels moved with them, with the glory of the Godof Israel over them, above.

23 And the glory of Yahweh rose from the centre of the city and halted on the mountain to the east of the city.

24 Then the spirit lifted me up and took me, in vision, in the spirit of God, to the exiles in Chaldaea, and the vision which I had seen faded.

25 I then told the exiles everything that Yahweh had shown me. GOD BLESS US ALL, eyes on JESUS. and ears to the HOLY SPIRIT day and night,

Servant of GOD

Ezechiel xi.

Notes & Commentary:

Ver. 1. Me. The prophet in Chaldea, saw in spirit what was doing at Jerusalem. (Worthington) -— Men. Magistrates. (Prado.) (Tirinus) (Menochius) -— Jezonias, perhaps mentioned [in] chap. viii. 11. (Calmet)

Ver. 3. Built, &c. These men despised the predictions and threats of the prophets; who declared them to be from God, that the city should be destroyed and the inhabitants carried into captivity: and they made use of this kind of argument against the prophets, that the city so far from being like to be destroyed, had lately be augmented by the building of new houses; from whence they further inferred, by way of a proverb, using the similitude of a cauldron, out of which the flesh is not taken till it is thoroughly boiled and fit to be eaten, that they should not be carried away out of thier city, but there end their days in peace. (Challoner) -— They thought themselves secure, (Worthington) and laughed at the menaces of Jeremias, i. 15. (Calmet) -— Hebrew, “The destruction is not soon coming. Let us build;” (Pagnin; Menochius) or, “It is not time to build.” (Calmet)

Ver. 6. Slain, under Manasses, &c. (Tirinus)

Ver. 7. Cauldron. I will explain the prediction, which you turn to ridicule. Those whom you have slain, are like the flesh (Calmet) boiled. (Haydock) -— But you shall be treated still worse, being led captives and slain. (Calmet) -— They feared wars, but had no dread of captivity. (Worthington)

Ver. 10. Israel. They pretended that they should die in peace in Jerusalem: God tells them it should not be so, but that they should be judged and condemned, and fall by the sword in the borders of Israel; viz., in Reblatha, in the land of Emath, where all their chief men were put to death by order of Nabuchodonosor, 4 Kings xxv., and Jeremias lii. 10, 27. (Challoner)

Ver. 12. But you. Some copies of Septuagint have, “neither have you done,” chap. v. 7.

Ver. 13. Pheltias, the prince, (ver. 1.; Haydock) or false prophet, whose death Ezechiel does not bewail, but fears the great destruction of the people; (Worthington; Menochius) though, if Pheltias died impenitent, his death might justly call for tears. (Haydock) -— This happened in a vision. Yet (Calmet) he probably died suddenly about his time. (Lyranus)

Ver. 15. Thy brethren, &c. He speaks of them that had been carried away captives before, who were despised by them that remained in Jerusalem; but, as the prophet here declares to them from God, should be in a more happy condition than they, and after some time return from their captivity. (Challoner) -— David had been insulted in like manner, 1 Kings xxvi. 19. (Calmet)

Ver. 16. A little. Hebrew, “for a short time, a sanctuary,” or temple. They shall find all things in me. The Christian Church was never more pure than during the first persecutions, when her children could not assemble freely, or build temples. (Calmet) -— God will never totally abandon her, Jeremias iv. 27., &c. (Worthington)

Ver. 18. Scandals: idols. They relapsed no more into idolatry, (Calmet) as a nation, though some fell in the persecution of Epiphanes. (Haydock)

Ver. 19. One. Septuagint, “another.” They have read (Calmet) acher for echad, “one.” (Haydock)

Ver. 21. Head. I will punish them as their crimes deserve. (Calmet)

Ver. 23. Mount Olivet, whence he might behold the conflagration of the city, before his ascent into heaven. (Menochius) -— He leaves his habitation by degrees, to shew how Jerusalem would be treated, and the Jews suffer after the ascension of our Saviour. Theodoret well observes, that the person on the throne represented Him, the upper part of the body being different from the lower, (chap. i. 26.) to denote the two natures. (Calmet)
