REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue in The Book of Ezekiel from Ezekiel 14.1-8.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.

So with that said, let’s read Ezekiel 14.1-8.

In the first fourteen chapters of Ezekiel, GOD is judging many of His Jewish People in Israel and Babylon with death, and many evils, and troubles, because they went after graven idols, and broke His Covenant by breaking His Word that is Law.

DEUTERONOMY 31.16-18, PSALM 105.8-10

Believing in Jesus does not excuse anyone from obeying GOD’S Law.  There is only One GOD and GOD is The GOD of all the world.  And GOD has only one Law, and that Law is The Law of Moses.

When Jesus, Yeshua The Messiah, gave His Life, and shed His Blood on a cross in Jerusalem, He did that for your Atonement, for the forgiveness of your sins.  Then, from The Teaching of GOD ALMIGHTY Whom Jesus is, we are to Repent of our sins of breaking GOD’S Law, The Law of Moses, to doing that which is Lawful and Right by living our lives according to The Law of Moses and Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible.  And GOD says, You shall surely live, you shall not die.

Walking in the ways of GOD according to Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses, will cause you not to sin against The LORD, and you will see the wonderful things of The Law.  And GOD’S Law will be your Counselor.

GOD’S Law is The Way of Truth.  It will give you understanding by going in The Path of GOD’S Commandments.  Your life will be Alive in Righteousness.  Because The Law of GOD is The Word of Truth that is liberty, and freedom from sin and death.  And you will delight yourself in The Laws and Commandments of GOD.

The Spoken Word of GOD Written in The Bible is your comfort in times of affliction.  Never turn away from GOD’S Law.  The ungodly forsake GOD’S Laws Written in The Law of Moses.  But remember The Name of The LORD, Yeshua The Messiah, Who is GOD ALMIGHTY, and keep His Law.  Do not forget it.  And GOD will deal well with you because GOD is good, and He does good.  Therefore delight in GOD’S Law, and GOD will give you understanding.

The Law of GOD is better than thousands of gold and silver, for GOD’S kindness is your comfort.  And GOD’S Law will become your delight.  Forever, GOD’S Word is settled in Heaven, and you belong to The LORD Your GOD.

GOD’S Word is a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path.  Every Word of GOD is an inheritance to you forever, and you will love The Law of GOD.

GOD will be your hiding place, and your shield forever.  And GOD will hold you up, and you will always be safe, for The Spoken Word of GOD is your Righteousness.  And you will love GOD’S Commandments above gold, and GOD’S Face will shine upon you, and teach you His Statutes.  They are Righteous and Very Faithful.  They are Loyal, Reliable, and can be Trusted, and True, because GOD’S Word is pure and His Law is The Truth.

When trouble and anguish take hold on you, GOD’S Commandments will be your delight.  GOD’S Righteousness is Everlasting and His Righteousness will give you Understanding, and Life.  And GOD will hear your voice according to His loving kindness because GOD is near you, and His Commandments are Truth.  They are forever.  Even though you might have persecutors and enemies, do not turn away from The Spoken Word of GOD, because GOD’S Word is true from the beginning, and they are His Righteous Judgments forever.

Stand in awe of GOD’S Word, and Love His Law.  Great peace have they who love GOD’S Law, and nothing will cause you to fall.  And GOD will always deliver you according to His Word.

And GOD’S Hand will always help you because you have chosen to keep GOD’S Law, and His Law will be your delight.  And do not forget His Law.  His Commandments are truth and life.  They are your life.  FROM THE WORDS OF PSALM 119

Back to Ezekiel.  Ezekiel says, Then came certain of the elders of Israel to me, and sat before me.

And The Word of The LORD came to Ezekiel, saying, Son of man, the hearts of these men are set on idols.  And they have put the stumbling block of their iniquity before their face.  That is, these men have fallen away from The LORD because they rejected GOD’S Spoken Word, saying, You shall have no other gods before Me.  You shall not make to yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters under the earth.  You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them, for I The LORD Your GOD am a jealous GOD visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me.

And also because GOD says, Man does not live by bread alone but by Every Word that proceeds out of The Mouth of The LORD does man live.

EXODUS 20.3-5, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

And GOD said to Ezekiel, Shall these men ask anything of Me?  Speak to them and say to them, Thus saith The LORD GOD, Every man of The House of Israel who has his heart set on his idols, and puts a stumbling block of his iniquity before his face and comes to the false prophet, I The LORD will answer him who comes according to the multitude of his idols.

That I will take The House of Israel in their own heart because they have turned away from Me through their idols.  Therefore GOD said to Ezekiel, Say to The House of Israel, Thus saith The LORD GOD, Repent, and turn from your idols, and turn your faces away from all your abominations.  For every one of The House of Israel, or of the stranger who lives in Israel, who separates himself from Me, and their hearts are set on idols, and puts a stumbling block of their iniquity before their face, and comes to a false prophet to inquire of him concerning Me, I The LORD will answer him by Myself.

And I will set My Face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb.  And I will cut him off.  That is, GOD will destroy and kill that person from among His People.  And they shall know that I am The LORD.

A sign is a miracle.  Sign comes from The Hebrew Word Ote, meaning Miracle.  And that Miracle will come some time in the future that will happen to them, cutting them off, destroying, and killing them from among GOD’S People.  Unless they repent and turn from their sins.

A proverb is a parable that teaches a truth.  And the truth is, Do not worship idols, and obey GOD, every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible.

GOD says, Repent.  Turn from idols, and turn from all your abominations of sinning against GOD.  Sinning against GOD is disobeying His Spoken Word in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation.  Sinning against GOD is disobeying His Torah, The Law of Moses.  1 JOHN 3.4

Repentance is taught throughout The Bible from beginning to end by turning to GOD and Obeying Every Word that GOD Speaks in The Bible that includes The Law of Moses.

Quite frankly, that is the fundamental teaching of The Bible.  Turn from all your sins of breaking GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses, to Obeying GOD’S Laws Written in The Law of Moses.

But GOD requires atonement, the forgiveness of your sins, by the shed blood.  When The Tabernacle and Temples were standing, atonement was made by the death and shed blood of a sacrificed animal.  Without The Temple in Jerusalem, atonement is made by the death and shed blood of The Jewish Messiah Yeshua, Who is Jesus.

Jesus did not give His Life to do away with the Law of Moses.  Jesus gave His Life to be your atonement, and then you are to follow His Footsteps by living a GODLY Life in Obedience to Torah, The Law of Moses, and Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible.

Peter says exactly that in his first letter to The Gentiles, that we should follow the steps of Jesus who did no sin.  Not doing any sin is living your life according to The Law of Moses.

1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4

HOW DO YOU REPENT? 

TURN TO MATTHEW 3.1-2, MATTHEW 4.16-17, MARK 6.11-12, LUKE 13.1-5, REVELATION 2.1-5, 12-16, 18-22, REVELATION 3.1-3, 14-22, EZEKIEL 18.21-24

IN EZEKIEL 18.21-24 GOD EXPLAINS HOW TO REPENT.

EZEKIEL 18.21  BUT IF THE UNGODLY WILL TURN, THAT IS REPENT FROM ALL THEIR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES, AND KEEP ALL MY STATUTES, ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND DO THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT.  GOD SAYS, THEY SHALL SURELY LIVE.  THEY SHALL NOT DIE. 

VERSE 22  ALL THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS THAT THEY HAVE COMMITTED, THEY SHALL NOT BE MENTIONED TO THEM.  IN THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT THEY HAVE DONE THEY SHALL LIVE.

VERSE 23  HAVE I ANY PLEASURE AT ALL THAT THE WICKED SHOULD DIE? SAITH THE LORD GOD, AND NOT THAT THEY SHOULD RETURN, THAT IS REPENT, FROM THEIR WAYS, AND LIVE?

VERSE 24  BUT WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS TURN AWAY FROM THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, AND THEY DO ACCORDING TO ALL THE ABOMINATIONS THAT THE WICKED DO, SHALL THEY LIVE?  ALL THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESSES THAT THEY HAVE DONE SHALL NOT BE MENTIONED.  IN THEIR TRESPASS THAT THEY HAVE TRESPASSED, AND IN THEIR SIN THAT THEY HAVE SINNED, IN THEM SHALL THEY DIE.  1 JOHN 1.9

I THINK OF THE GODLY PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE. 

DAVID WRITES, BEHOLD, I WAS SHAPEN IN INIQUITY, AND IN SIN DID MY MOTHER CONCEIVE ME.  PAUL WRITES, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

THE ONLY ONE WHO NEVER SINNED IS THE MESSIAH YESHUA.  AND HE IS GOD, JEHOVAH ELOHAYNU, THE LORD OUR GOD.

PSALM 51.5, ROMANS 3.23 

SO I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT ALL THESE GODLY PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE, LIKE US, WERE BORN IN SIN.  AND AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIVES THEY REPENTED AND TURNED TO GOD AND LIVED A GODLY LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE IN THEIR DAY.

IN OUR DAY WE HAVE THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

ENOCH, WHOM GOD TOOK UP TO HEAVEN.  NOAH, WHOM GOD SAVED FROM THE FLOOD, AND ALL HIS FAMILY OF EIGHT.  ABRAHAM, WHO BECAME THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND MANY NATIONS.  ISAAC, FROM WHOM THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE CALLED.  JACOB WHOM GOD NAMED ISRAEL.  MOSES WHO RECEIVED THE LAW FROM GOD AND GAVE IT TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE GAVE GOD’S LAW TO THE WORLD FROM THE BIBLE THAT JEWISH PEOPLE WROTE.  ADD TO THEM, THE PROPHETS, AND THE RIGHTEOUS KINGS OF ISRAEL, AND OTHERS.

AND THE DISCIPLES, AND THE APOSTLES OF MESSIAH, AND THE GODLY MEN AND WOMEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WHO FOLLOWED THE MESSIAH YESHUA, AND LIVED BY EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

AND THEY SING THE SONG OF MOSES.  REVELATION 15.1-3

THE SONG OF MOSES IS ABOUT GOD, AND EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. 

THE WORDS OF THE SONG ARE GOD’S WORDS.

THE SONG OF MOSES TEACHES THE WORLD AND THE HEAVENS TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.  AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IS HIS DOCTRINE

DEUTERONOMY 31.14-19, 30, DEUTERONOMY 32.1-4, 44-47  

AND THE SONG TELLS THAT ISRAEL AND THE NATIONS DISOBEY GOD PROVOKING THE LORD TO ANGER.  AND BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEIENCE TO THE CREATOR, GOD JUDGES THE WORLD WITH DEATH, AND MANY EVILS, AND TROUBLES.  THINK CORONAVIRUS, WARS, DIVISION, HATE, ETC.

THEREFORE REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND. 

GENESIS 5.24, GENESIS 6.9, GENESIS 17.4, GENESIS 21.12, GENESIS 32.28, DEUTERONOIMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, 1 PETER 2.21-22, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, MICAH 5.2, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

WHAT IS THE WORD OF THE LORD? AND WHAT IS A FALSE PROPHET?

Shalom,

Our study today will continue in Ezekiel Chapter 13.

And The Title of our message is, What is The Word of The LORD?  And what is a false prophet?

Ezekiel begins Chapter 13 with the words, And The Word of The LORD came to me, saying, Son of man, Prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say to them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear The Word of The LORD.

Prophesying from ones’ own heart is prophesying ones’ own thoughts and not The Word Spoken by GOD.  Prophesying from ones’ own heart is a false prophet.

And GOD continues speaking to Ezekiel, saying, Thus saith The LORD GOD, Woe to the foolish prophets that follow their own spirit and have seen nothing.

O Israel, your prophets are like foxes in the deserts.  Foxes are sly, meaning, cunning, crafty, devious, and deceitful.

You have not gone up into the breaks, or made a wall for The House of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of The LORD.  The day of The LORD is every day.

The false prophets have seen vanity, falsehoods, and lying divination, lying witchcraft, saying The LORD says, but The LORD has not sent them.  And they have made The People to hope that the words of the false prophets would come true.

Have you not seen a lying vision, Ezekiel said, and have you not spoken lying divination?  Therefore you say, The LORD has said it, but The LORD has not said it.

Therefore, Thus saith The LORD GOD, Because you have spoken lies, and seen lies, behold I am against you, saith The LORD GOD.

And My Hand shall be upon the prophets that see lies and that divine lies.  Divine and divination are witchcraft and magic that are practiced by false prophets whom GOD hates.  They shall not be in The Assembly of My People, neither shall they be written in the writing of The House of Israel.  Neither shall they enter The Land of Israel, and you shall know that I am The LORD.

Because, because they have led My People astray, saying, Peace, and there was no peace.

GOD is comparing their lies with one who built a flimsy wall, and the wall fell because of the stormy wind of GOD’S fury, and an overwhelming rain of GOD’S anger, and great hailstones of GOD’S fury to consume it.

MATTHEW 7.24-27  Yeshua The Messiah is Jehovah, The Father, GOD ALMIGHTY.  And Messiah Yeshua says, Therefore whosoever hears and obeys These Words of Mine, I will liken to a wise man who built his house upon a rock.  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, but it did not fall because its foundation was a rock.

THAT FOUNDATION THAT IS A ROCK IS YOUR OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT IS THE HOUSE THAT DOES NOT FALL IN THE STORMS OF LIFE.

And Messiah says, Every one that hears These Words of Mine, and does not do them, shall be likened to a foolish man who built his house upon sand.  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house.  And it fell, and great was the fall of it.

So, Messiah Yeshua, Who is Jesus Christ, GOD ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH, says, Every one that hears These Words of Mine Written in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes GOD’S Law, The Law of Moses, and does not do them will be likened to a foolish man who built his house on sand.

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.

Messiah likened the foolish man to one who hears The Words of GOD, perhaps reading The Bible, perhaps from a Bible Teacher, or a friend, or relative, or someone, but refuses to do what GOD says.  So, when the problems of life came, and we all know that problems come like rain, floods, and wind, the foolish man, or foolish woman fell because their life was not built on The Foundation of Obedience to Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes The Law of Moses that is the first five books of The Bible.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, JOHN 14.9

Back to Ezekiel.

Therefore, GOD said to Ezekiel, Thus saith The LORD, I will cause a stormy wind to break out in My fury, and there will be a pouring rain in My anger, and I will break down the wall, and bring it down to the ground, and you shall be consumed in the midst of it, and you shall know that I am The LORD.

Thus will I accomplish My wrath on the prophets of Israel who prophesy to Jerusalem, who see for Jerusalem visions of peace, and there is no peace, saith The LORD.

Likewise, The LORD said to Ezekiel, You son of man, set your face against the daughters of Your People who prophesy out of their own heart, and prophesy against them.  Will you lay snares for the souls of My People?  And will you save the souls alive that come to you?

And will you pollute Me among My People for handfuls of barley, and for pieces of bread to put to death the souls that should not die, and save the souls alive that should not live by your lying to My People who hear your lies?

Because with lies you have made the heart of The Righteous sad, whom I have not made sad, and strengthened the hands of the wicked that he should not return from his wicked way by promising him life.

Therefore you shall no longer prophesy lies, or practice divination of magic and witchcraft.  I will save My People from your hands, and you shall know that I am The LORD.

The LORD describes a false prophet as people who prophesy out of their own hearts, speaking their own thoughts, not The Words of GOD.

False prophets follow their own spirit and have seen nothing.

False prophets are like sly foxes in the deserts, cunning, crafty, devious, and deceitful.

False prophets see vanity, falsehoods, lying divinations, saying The LORD says, but The LORD has not sent them, and they make people to hope that their words will come true.

False prophets see lying visions, and speak lying divination that is magic and witchcraft, saying, The LORD has said it, but The LORD has not said it.  False prophets speak lies and see lies, and GOD hates that.  They lead people astray, away from GOD.

False prophets pollute The Name of The LORD with lies.  They make The Righteous sad, and they strengthen the wicked not to turn from their wicked ways, promising them life.

False prophets are also spoken of in The New Testament.

False prophet in Greek is PSEUDOPROPHETES that comes from the Greek word PSEUDES meaning, UNTRUE, ERRONEOUS, DECEITFUL, WICKED, FALSE, AND LIAR.

False prophet means a spurious prophet.  Spurious meaning, not genuine, counterfeit, and illegitimate, or a religious imposter.

MATTHEW 7.14-16  BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS, i.e. RELIGIOUS IMPOSTERS, WHO COME TO YOU IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY THEY ARE RAVENING WOLVES.  YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. 

JOHN 15.8-10

GOOD FRUITS ARE KEEPING GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, BEING OBEDIENT TO THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD.  THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD ARE COLLECTIVELY THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

Beware of false prophets, and false teachers who do not keep The Commandments of GOD, but rather disobey The Commandments of GOD that are GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses, and beware of those who teach against The Law of Moses.

WHEN YOU ARE TOLD THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR NO LONGER IN EFFECT FOR WHATEVER REASON, OR OPTIONAL, OR ONLY FOR THE JEWS, OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SALVATION IF YOU OBEY THE LAW OF MOSES, OR THE LAW OF MOSES IS LEGALISM, OR YOU ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW, THAT PERSON IS EITHER A FALSE PROPHET OR A RELIGIOUS IMPOSTER.

IF YOU ARE TOLD MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE, IS NOT GOD, NOT JEHOVAH, NOT THE FATHER, NOT GOD ALMIGHTY, NOT THE SPIRIT, NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT, NOT THE MESSIAH, THAT PERSON IS A FALSE PROPHET, OR A RELIGIOUS IMPOSTER.

IF YOU ARE TOLD OR READ THAT THE JEWISH BELIEVERS IN THE MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS CHRIST, WERE CHRISTIANS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, OR THEY WERE THE CHURCH IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, YOU ARE READING, OR SPEAKING TO, OR LISTENING TO A FALSE PROPHET, OR A RELIGIOUS IMPOSTER.  THE JEWISH BELIEVERS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WERE JEWISH BELONGING TO A JEWISH MESSIANIC CONGREGATION(S), AND NOT CHRISTIANS, NOR THE CHURCH.  THE CHURCH BEGAN IN THE DAYS OF CONSTANTINE IN 324 A.D.

THE WORD OF GOD IS EASY TO KNOW THAT IT IS THE WORD OF GOD.

ONE SCRIPTURE IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND.  EVERY WORD MUST LINE UP AND AGREE WITH THIS ONE SCRIPTURE OR IT IS NOT THE WORD OF GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 6.4  HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD THE LORD IS ONE.

HEAR IN HEBREW IS SHEMA MEANING, HEAR, LISTEN, AND OBEY.  MARK 12.28-30

GOD IS TELLING THE WORLD, JEWISH PEOPLE AND PEOPLE NOT JEWISH, TO HEAR, LISTEN TO, AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

IF WHAT YOU HEAR OR READ DOES NOT AGREE WITH THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU ARE NOT HEARING OR READING THE TRUTH OF GOD.

IF WHAT YOU READ OR HEAR DOES NOT AGREE WITH THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU ARE NOT READING OR HEARING THE WORD OF GOD.  YOU ARE NOT HEARING OR READING THE TRUTH.

EVERY WORD MUST LINE UP WITH GOD’S TRUTH IN THE LAW OF MOSES OR IT IS NOT THE WORD OF GOD. 

MARK 12.28-30, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

I WILL GIVE THEM ONE HEART, AND I WILL PUT A NEW SPIRIT WITHIN THEM, AND I WILL TAKE THE STONY HEART OUT OF THEIR FLESH, AND WILL GIVE THEM A HEART OF FLESH THAT THEY SHALL WALK IN MY STATUTES, AND KEEP MY LAWS, AND DO THEM. AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD.

Shalom,

Our teachings will continue in The Book of Ezekiel from Chapters 10 and 11.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, I WILL GIVE THEM ONE HEART, AND I WILL PUT A NEW SPIRIT WITHIN THEM, AND I WILL TAKE THE STONY HEART OUT OF THEIR FLESH, AND WILL GIVE THEM A HEART OF FLESH THAT THEY SHALL WALK IN MY STATUTES, AND KEEP MY LAWS, AND DO THEM.  AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD.

The time of Ezekiel’s writings is around 580 B.C.E./B.C.

Earlier in Ezekiel Chapter 9 in the vision that GOD showed The Prophet, The LORD called upon men who had the charge of Judgment over The City of Jerusalem to kill many Jewish People in Judah, southern Israel, because of Jewish abominations of worshiping graven idols, and fully disobeying The LORD Their GOD,  The Holy One of Israel.

In Ezekiel Chapter 10, Ezekiel writes that he looked and saw in the sky, the cherubim that had the four faces.  The face of a cherub, the face of a man, the face of a lion, and the face of an eagle.  And there appeared over them a sapphire stone as the look of the form of a Throne.

And GOD spoke to the man clothed with linen who had the horn of oil at his side and told him to go between the cherubim and the wheels.  Their whole body, that is the cherubim, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels were full of eyes all around.  Even the wheels that were under the four cherubim were full of eyes.  And the wheels had life in them.

And GOD said to the man clothed in linen, Fill your hands with coals of fire, and scatter them over the City, the City of Jerusalem.  And one cherub stretched out his hand that was under his wing to the fire that was between the cherubim, and took the fire and put it into the hand of him who was clothed in white linen.  And he took it, and went out.

And the cherubim stood on the south side of The Temple.  And The Glory of GOD filled The Inner Court of The Temple.  And The Temple was filled with The Cloud that is The Glory of GOD.  And The Court of The Temple was filled with The Brightness of The LORD’S Glory.  And the sound of the cherubim’s wings was heard as The Voice of The ALMIGHTY GOD when He speaks.  And The Glory of The LORD stood over the cherubim.

And The Spirit of GOD lifted Ezekiel up in the vision and brought him to The East Gate of The LORD’S House that is The Temple.  And at the opening of the gate were twenty five men.  Among them by name, Jaazaniah and Pelatiah, both princes of The Jewish People.  Then GOD said to Ezekiel, Son of man, these are the men who devise evil and give wicked counsel in this City, the City of Jerusalem, who say, It is not near.  Let us build houses.  Meaning, these two men believed that the vision Ezekiel saw was for many days to come, and he prophecies of the times that are far off.  And Jaazaniah and Pelatiah, the two men who devised evil, and wicked counsel, said, This city is the boiling pot and we are the flesh.  Ezekiel 12.27

Therefore GOD said to Ezekiel, Prophesy against them.  Prophesy O son of man.  And The Spirit of The LORD fell upon Ezekiel, and GOD said to him, Speak.  Thus saith The LORD.  Thus you have said, O House of Israel, for I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them.  You have multiplied your dead in this City, and you have filled the streets of this City with the dead.

At this point, let me say this; the 1.9 million dead in the world from coronavirus, and 88 million sick from coronavirus, the troubles, the riots, the wars, fires, earthquakes. etc. are all Judgments and Curses from GOD because most people disobey The Spoken Word of GOD that is Written in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation.

Therefore, The LORD said, Your dead whom you have laid in the midst of this City, Jerusalem, they are the flesh, and this City is the boiling pot.  But I will bring you out of the midst of the City.  You have feared the sword, and I will bring a sword upon you, saith The LORD GOD.  And I will bring you out of the midst of this City and deliver you into the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you.  You shall fall by the sword.

These are Judgments and Curses from GOD for disobeying The LORD GOD of Creation.  For disobeying The Spoken Word of GOD Who teaches The Jewish People, and all peoples of the evil of worshiping strange gods.  And the evil for disobeying GOD.  Therefore GOD said to His Jewish People, You shall fall by the sword.  I will judge you in the border of Israel.  That is, GOD will Judge His People from The River of Egypt to The Euphrates River, the borders of Israel.  And you shall know that I am The LORD, GOD said.

Then GOD said, This City, the City of Jerusalem, shall not be your boiling pot, neither shall you be the flesh in the midst of it, but I will judge you throughout Israel.  And you shall know that I am The LORD.

Because you have not walked in My Laws, neither have you executed My Judgments but have gone after the customs of the goyim that are around you.

And Ezekiel writes, When I prophesied, Pelatiah died.  And Ezekiel fell on his face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah LORD GOD, will you make a full end of the remnant of Israel?  And The LORD said, Son of man, your brothers, your brothers, the men of your family, and all The House of Israel, are they not those to whom The People of Jerusalem have said, Go far away from The LORD.  This Land is given to us for a possession.

Therefore GOD said to Ezekiel, say, Thus saith The LORD, Although I have cast them far among the goyim, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little Sanctuary of protection and shelter in the countries where they shall come.

When you are told that The Law of Moses is not valid today, or it is only for The Jews, or it is optional, or pray about it, or it’s abolished, you are being told, Go far away from The LORD.

Let’s read Ezekiel 11.17-25

VERSE 17  Therefore say, Thus saith The LORD GOD, I will gather you from the peoples, and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered in them, and I shall give to you The Land of Israel.

Today there are approximately ten million Jewish People living in Israel of some fourteen to sixteen million Jewish People living throughout the world.

But GOD is talking about the future days of the one thousand year Messianic Kingdom in Israel when The LORD, The Messiah Yeshua, Returns and sets up His Kingdom in Israel whose borders GOD will restore from The River of Egypt to The Euphrates River that will be like The Garden Eden.  And Messiah Yeshua will be King over all the earth from Jerusalem.  That is when GOD will gather His Jewish People, and all Peoples who live by Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation, and all Gentiles who Bless The Jewish People and Israel.

GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46, DEUTERON OMY 8.3, ISAIAH 51.3, ZECHARIAH 14.9, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

EZEKIEL 11.18  And they shall come there, to Israel.  Remember, Ezekiel was in Babylon, current-day Iraq when GOD was speaking to him.  And they, The Jewish People, shall remove all their idolatry from Israel, and turn to The LORD Their GOD and obey Him.  EZEKIEL 18.21

The Messianic Kingdom in Israel will be perfect, without sin, without death, without pain, without sorrow.  The Kingdom will be like The Garden of Eden, but without satan.  Israel will be Heaven on earth.

EZEKIEL 11.19   And GOD said, I will give them One Heart, and I will put a New Spirit within them, and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh.

Heart in Hebrew is LAYVE meaning the emotions of the mind, and love, and joy, our thinking, and acting, our intellect, and wisdom.  The Heart of Flesh will have the wisdom of GOD, and thinking that will be all about GOD, without sin, but with a pure heart.

And The New Spirit that GOD will give to all who are in the one thousand year Messianic Kingdom in Israel is The Holy Spirit.

The stony heart does not obey GOD.  But The Heart of Flesh happily receives what GOD says, and does it.

PSALM 24.1-6, JOHN 14.21-23 

EZEKIEL 11.20 Describes The Heart of Flesh.  That they shall walk in My Statutes.  GOD’S Statutes are His Laws written in Torah, The Law of Moses, and keep My Ordinances.  GOD’S Ordinances are His Judgments and Laws written in The Law of Moses.  And they will do them.  And they shall be My People, and I will be their GOD.

The Heart of flesh joyfully does what GOD says.  One Heart, One Spirit, Loving The LORD with all your Heart, with all your soul, and with all your might.  DEUTERONOMY 6.4-7

Let’s do a Bible Study on The Holy Spirit.

First of all, you receive The Holy Spirit by obeying GOD.  By obeying Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes The Law of Moses, The first five books of The Bible.

EZEKIEL 26.26-27, ACTS 5.32, 1 JOHN 2.4-6, 1 JOHN 3.24

WHEN PEOPLE RECEIVE JESUS, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD WILL PUT HIS LAW IN YOUR INWARD PARTS, AND WRITE IT IN YOUR HEART, AND WILL BE YOUR GOD, AND YOU WILL BE FULLY PART OF GOD’S PEOPLE.  HOWEVER IF YOU REFUSE TO OBEY GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, GOD WILL REMOVE THE HOLY SPIRIT FROM YOU. 

JEREMIAH 31.31-34, EZEKIEL 11.19-20. 1 JOHN 1.9

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD.

GOD DESCRIBES HIMSELF AS US, OUR, AND WE, BECAUSE GOD IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.  ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  SO WHEN GOD SAYS, LET “US” MAKE MAN IN “OUR” IMAGE, AFTER “OUR” LIKENESS, OR, AS MESSIAH SAYS, IF A MAN LOVES ME, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS, AND MY FATHER WILL LOVE HIM, AND “WE” WILL COME INTO HIM AND MAKE “OUR” HOME WITH HIM.  THE ONE GOD IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. “US”  ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

GENESIS 1.26, JOHN 14.23

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD.

MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS, JEHOVAH, GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, THE SPIRIT, ARE THE HOLY SPIRIT. ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

And Yeshua said, If a person loves Me, that person will keep My Words.  That is, he or she will obey Every Word Messiah Speaks.  For Messiah Yeshua is GOD ALMIGHTY.   AND “WE”  will come into that person, and make “OUR” home with him.  “WE” BEING GOD WHO IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS, AND THE SPIRIT.  THEY ARE THE HOLY SPIRIT.  GOD IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.

TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT FROM GOD, YOU MUST OBEY GOD, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THEN GOD WILL GIVE YOU HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND HE WILL LIVE IN YOU FOREVER, AS LONG AS YOU CONTINUE TO OBEY THE LORD YOUR GOD.  AND THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN. 

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.  JOHN 14.17

THE SOURCE OF TRUTH IS GOD, AND GOD, THE MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE HOLY SPIRIT. 

FOR EXAMPLE, IF SOMEONE SAYS TO YOU, THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR NOT VALID, OR OPTIONAL, YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO IT.  THAT IS NOT THE TRUTH, BUT A LIE.  THAT PERSON DOES NOT HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

OR IF SOMEONE SAYS TO YOU, YOU ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES, OR THE LAW OF MOSES IS LEGALISM.  LEGALISM, ACCORDING TO WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY, IS STRICT ADHERENCE TO THE LAW, AND TO THE LETTER, BUT NOT THE SPIRIT.  IS GOD NOT SPIRIT? 

THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS GOD’S LAW IS SPIRIT BECAUSE IT IS GIVEN TO US BY GOD WHO IS SPIRIT THAT TEACHES YOU HOW TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT BY OBEYING THE LAW. 

JOHN 4.24

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE LAW ARE TRUTH THAT COME FROM THE GOD OF TRUTH TO GUIDE YOU IN ALL TRUTH.  AND HE WILL SHOW YOU THINGS TO COME.  JOHN 16.13

ROMANS 8.9  THE FLESH DISOBEYS GOD.  THE FLESH DISOBEYS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, WHICH CONTAINS THE LAWS OF GOD.  AND PAUL WRITES, IF ANY PERSON DOES NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF MESSIAH WHO IS JEHOVAH, GOD ALMIGHTY, HE OR SHE IS NONE OF HIS.  MEANING, IF THEY DO NOT HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT, THEY DO NOT BELONG TO MESSIAH BECAUSE THEY DO NOT OBEY GOD.

1 JOHN 2.27  THE ANOINTING IS THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO LIVES IN YOU BECAUSE YOU OBEY GOD.  THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.  AND YOU DO NOT NEED ANY MAN OR WOMAN TO TEACH YOU, BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TRUTH AND NOT A LIE.  AND AS THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS TAUGHT YOU, YOU SHALL LIVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, CONTINUALLY LOVING GOD, AND LIVING BY HIS SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE.

GOOD EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE HAVING THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE MOSES AND ISAIAH, AND OF COURSE JESUS, BECAUSE THEY LIVED BY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD AS WE SHOULD LIVE OUR LIFE BY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  

NUMBERS 11.14-17, ISAIAH 59.20-21, JOHN 3.34

THOSE WHO ARE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, AND LIVE BY THE TRUTH, YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.  ROMANS 8.14

THE TEMPLE IS THE HOUSE OF GOD.  AND GOD LIVES IN HIS HOUSE.  AND PAUL WRITES, BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVES IN YOU, YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD. 

1 CORINTHIANS 3.16-17, 2 CORINTHIANS 6.16-18

GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, WHO IS GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD.  THE WORLD DOES NOT HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.  1 JOHN 4.4

1 JOHN 4.13  KNOWING IN YOUR HEART THAT YOU OBEY GOD FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE BIBLE TO THE END, AND KNOWING THAT IF YOU CONFESS YOUR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES, GOD IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE YOU YOUR SINS, AND CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.  THEREFORE YOU KNOW THAT YOU LIVE IN GOD, AND GOD LIVES IN YOU BECAUSE GOD HAS GIVEN YOU HIS HOLY SPIRIT. 

1 JOHN 3.4, 1 JOHN 1.9

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL BE WITH YOU FOREVER IF YOU LIVE IN THE TRUTH OF GOD FOREVER.  2 JOHN 1-2

SO IN SUMMARY,

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD.

YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT FROM GOD BECAUSE YOU OBEY GOD, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, THE SOURCE OF ALL TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD WHO LIVES IN YOU.

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVES IN YOU FOREVER AS LONG AS YOU CONTINUE TO WALK WITH GOD IN OBEDIENCE TO GOD.  AND SINCE THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVES IN YOU FOREVER, YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN FOREVER WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD.

SO LET’S FINISH BY READING EZEKIEL 11.21-25.

IT’S EVEN WORSE THAN I THOUGHT IT WAS

Shalom,

Our message today will come from Ezekiel 9.1-11.

And The Title is, It’s even worse than I thought it was.

So with that said, let’s read Ezekiel 9.1-11.

Remember, GOD took Ezekiel in a vision to The Temple in Jerusalem while Ezekiel was in Babylon with The Jewish captives.  And at The Temple, GOD spoke in a stern voice in the ears of Ezekiel in The vision, saying, Let them that have charge over The City of Jerusalem for judgment come near, every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.

And six men came from The Upper Gate, each with a slaughter weapon in his hand.  And one man among  them came clothed in linen with a writer’s cup filled with ink by his side.  And he stood by The Bronze Altar at The Temple.

And GOD called the man clothed with linen who had the cup filled with ink by his side.  And The LORD said to him, Go through the midst of Jerusalem and put a mark upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry because of all the abominations of idolatry in the midst of The City.

And to the others, GOD said in Ezekiel’s hearing, Go after him through The City and kill.  Let not your eye spare, neither have pity.  Kill utterly, old men, and old women, and young, both girls and little children, and women.  But do not come near any one who has the mark.  And begin with My Sanctuary, in The Holy Place in My Temple.  Then they began with the elders who were in The Temple.

And GOD said to the destroyers, Defile The Temple, and fill The Courts with the dead.  Go forth.  And they killed in The City.  And while they were killing them, Ezekiel writes, I fell on my face and cried to The LORD, Ah LORD GOD, will you destroy all who remain in Israel in your pouring out of your fury upon Jerusalem?

Then GOD said to me, The iniquity of The House of Israel and Judah is very great, and much, and The Land is full of blood, and The City is filled with depravity, for they say, The LORD has forsaken The Land, and The LORD does not see.

And as for Me also, The LORD said, My Eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will repay them for their way upon their head.

Because of their Idolatry, and violating GOD’S Law, The Law of Moses, GOD judged His Jewish People with death and sorrow.

And the man clothed with linen who had the cup of ink by his side reported, and said, I have done as you have Commanded me.

The Bible is a Book about GOD.  And GOD makes it very clear from the beginning of The Creation, starting in Genesis 2.15-17 and throughout The Bible to the end of The Book of Revelation that He blesses those who Obey him, and curses those who disobey Him.

Yes, I know that billions of people are taught that Christ abolished the Law of Moses and you are no longer under The Law.  Just as satan tricked Adam and Eve to disobey GOD, Satan continues to trick billions of people by telling you that you do not have to obey The Law of Moses.

Disobeying GOD’S Law is the path of sin that does not have a happy ending. 1 JOHN 3.4

Disobedience to GOD is sin.  And disobedience to GOD began with the first two human beings.  And GOD’S judgment is always the same, unless people turn to GOD and repent.  What is repentance?  Turning from all your sins of breaking The Law of Moses to living your life by The Law of Moses.  EZEKIEL 18.21 

Most people know that the first people GOD created were Adam and Eve.  It is written in The Law of Moses in The Bible.  GOD created them both without sin to live forever in a Garden of Eden world.  But GOD suddenly put the crafty, lying satan before Adam and Eve in their perfect world, The Garden of Eden.

Like today, GOD used satan to test Adam and Eve to see if they would obey GOD or not.  Most everyone knows that GOD Commanded Adam that he could eat from every tree in The Garden but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  And GOD said, you shall not eat of it, for in the day you eat from that tree, you shall surely die.

I remember watching the great comedian Flip Wilson on TV a long time ago.  And his joke had something to do with Adam and Eve.  And Flip Wilson, having a big smile on his face, said, The devil made me do it.  And the audience cracked up in laughter.

Everyone knows that Adam and Eve disobeyed GOD by eating the fruit that GOD told them not to eat.  But do people know that instead of living forever in a perfectly beautiful sinless Garden of Eden world, Adam and Eve lived and died in a world of sin, curses, enmity, women having sorrow in bringing forth children, and their desire is to their husband, and he shall rule over the woman.  And the ground is cursed because of Adam’s sin of disobeying GOD.  And because of Adam’s sin, work is tough till we return to the ground, for GOD said to Adam, For out of the dust were you taken.  For dust you are, to dust you shall return.

Because Adam and Eve disobeyed GOD, they left us an example not to disobey GOD, but rather Obey Him.

So GOD drove Adam and Eve out of The Garden of Eden to work the ground from where they were taken.  And GOD kept them away from The Tree of Life.  And in time they both died, as GOD said, because they listened to satan and disobeyed GOD.  GENESIS 2-5

Years later while Adam and Eve were still alive, GOD took Enoch up to Heaven because Enoch Obeyed GOD.

Then in the sixth Chapter of The Bible, GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth.  Like today, wickedness, disobedience to GOD, was great on the earth.

But Noah was Righteous before GOD.  Meaning  Noah obeyed GOD.  Noah obeyed The Words that GOD Spoke.

And GOD destroyed the earth and everyone in it by a flood except Noah and his family of eight because Noah obeyed GOD.  The rest of the world disobeyed GOD.

The millions or billions of people that GOD killed in Noah’s day refused to obey GOD.  GOD can do that because GOD is The Creator of this world and everything in it including you and me.  And GOD sets The Rules for life and death.  GOD’S rules are written in The Law of Moses in the first five books of The Bible, and GOD’S Rules are also every Word GOD speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that GOD requires the world to obey.

GOD explains in simple everyday language, whatever language people may read in their Bible, and whatever language Bible Teachers teach from their Bible.  And GOD’S language teaches that GOD requires Obedience to every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible.  Life for Obedience to GOD, or death,for Disobeying GOD.

Obedience to GOD is the path of life.  That never changes or ends.

GENESIS 2.16-17, GENESIS 3.1-24, GENESIS 5.5, 24, GENESIS 6.1-9, GENESIS 7.1, ISAIAH 24.4-6

As many people know, GOD established a system for atonement for sin, and everyone sins, and everyone needs atonement for the forgiveness of their sins before GOD.  And GOD provided that atonement.  In the days of The Tabernacle and first and second Temples, GOD provided the animal sacrifice, and its shed blood for atonement.  But nothing changes with GOD.  GOD always requires obedience to every Word He speaks, and blood for atonement.

GOD moved the Romans in 70 C.E./A.D. to destroy Jerusalem and The Temple leaving many Jewish People killed by the Romans.  And GOD scattered His Jewish People throughout the world because we sinned against GOD by rejecting Our GOD and Messiah Yeshua.  We should have known then, and we should know today that Messiah Yeshua is The GOD of Israel. Because it is Prophesied in Tnakh, The Old Testament, and fulfilled in The Jewish New Testament.

GOD Prophesied in Tnakh, the exact time Messiah would come to Israel, the exact time He would be killed, but not for Himself, that He would rise from the dead, and the grief and death He would suffer for our Atonement.  And that Messiah is GOD, ELOHIM.

And written in The New Testament, a Jewish Bible written by Jewish People is the fulfilment of GOD’S Prophecies in Tnakh concerning our Jewish Messiah.

And in Jerusalem, Messiah said to His Jewish People, You should have known the time of My Visit.  For I say unto you, You shall not see Me again till you shall say, Blessed is He Who comes in The Name of The LORD.

MATTHEW 23.36-39, LUKE 19.41-44, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, MICAH 5.2, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.1-12, DANIEL 9.20-27, ELOHIM, ETC.

AND JEWISH PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THE MEANING OF ELOHIM WHEN IT COMES TO THE GOD OF ISRAEL.  AND JEWISH PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW WHAT GOD MEANS WHEN HE SAYS, LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE.

ELOHIM IS THE ONE GOD, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, HA SHEM, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND MUCH MORE.  ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  JEWISH PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THAT FOR LIFE, EVEN ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  AND JEWISH PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THAT THEY MUST LIVE BY THE SHEMA.  

GENESIS 1.1, 26, DEUTERONOMY 6.4

Satan did not suddenly die or flee, or disappear after the days of Adam and Eve.  Satan is alive and well today with his craft using his ministers to deceive people, teaching that Jesus abolished GOD’S Law, The Law of Moses, just as satan tricked Eve by telling her, you shall not surely die.  GENESIS 3.1-6

We are taught the lie that when the veil of The Temple was torn when Messiah was crucified, The Law of Moses was abolished.  I gotta tell you ladies and gentlemen, nowhere in The Bible is it written that because The Veil was torn in The Temple when Messiah was crucified The Law of Moses was abolished.  That is crazy.  No one, not even GOD can abolish The Law of Moses.  No one can abolish one Word GOD speaks.

Then there is the universal lie that Jesus abolished The Law of Moses when He was crucified because Jesus obeyed The Law of Moses, and fulfilled The Law.  That’s a flat out lie that leads to sin, death, and hell.

The Bible says that GOD is not a man that he should lie, neither the son of man that He should change His Mind.  NUMBERS 23.19

And today satan is still doing a good job of lying, teaching people to disobey GOD by disobeying The Law of Moses.  satan is working overtime to get you to disobey GOD, to disobey The Spoken Word of GOD that is The Law of Moses.  In fact, satan is GOD’S test to test you to see if you will obey GOD or not.  And satan, as Paul writes, is a decitful worker transformed into an angel of light, along with his ministers to deceive you.

2 CORINTHIANS 11.13-15, EPHESIANS 5.11, ISAIAH 45.7, DEUTERONOMY 8.2, JUDGES 2.20-23, JUDGES 3.1, 4

Most Bibles trick you into disobeying GOD by writing, For you are not under The Law but under grace.  But in fact, living your life not under GOD’S Law of Moses is a ticket to sin, death, and hell.  Thinking you are not under The Law is the same as satan saying to Eve, You shall surely not die.  ROMANS 6.14-16

14  For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under The Law.  That is a lie.

15  Because sin is transgressing The Law of Moses.  1 JOHN 3.4

16  Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, whether to sin unto death, or of obedience unto Righteousness.

Believing you are not under The Law, and you do not obey The Law of Moses, you are a servant of satan unto sin and death.  

Listen to what Jesus says about The Law in JOHN 18.37  Pilate therefore said to Jesus, Are you a King then?  Jesus answered, You say that I am a King.  To this end was I born and for this cause I came into the world that I should bear witness of The Truth.  Everyone that is of The Truth Hears My Voice.  THE TRUTH IS THE LAW OF MOSES.  PSALM 119.142, ISAIAH 51.6-8

PEOPLE WHO DISOBEY GOD BY DISOBEYING HIS SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE WILL NEVER RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT UNLESS THEY TURN TO GOD AND OBEY GOD, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  ACTS 5.32, EZEKIEL 18.21

Again, the doctrine of the trinity of one GOD being three different GODS is certainly not Biblical but has pagan roots.  Nor is Jesus equal with GOD.  JESUS is not equal with GOD.  JESUS is GOD.

ISAIAH 40.25-26, ISAIAH 46.5-6,  PHILIPPIANS 2.6 IS A LIE, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.8, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5

GOD gives us so many examples and warnings in The Bible.  Examples for blessings, and examples for curses. Ezekiel 1-9 are examples for curses.

Jewish People have been slammed by GOD for disobeying GOD and worshipping idols.  Do Jewish People worship idols today?  No, but we Jewish People are in sin, sinning against GOD, because we still have anti Semitism.  One major sin many Jewish People are doing against GOD is rejecting Their GOD and Messiah Yeshua, Jesus Who is The Holy One of Israel.

The Jesus Christ who abolished The Law of Moses is not GOD.

Ezekiel has the answer.  Ezekiel writes, But if the wicked, the wicked are ungodly people who do not obey GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses, if the wicked will turn from all their sins, sin is breaking The Law of Moses, 1 John 3.4, that he has committed, and keeps all My Statutes, that is GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses, and does that which is lawful and right, obeying GOD by obeying His Law of Moses, and having Messiah Yeshua, Jesus for your Atonement, he shall surely live.  He shall not die.  EZEKIEL 18.21

I NEVER THOUGHT IT WAS THIS BAD.

Shalom,

Our Message today will come from Ezekiel 8.1-18.

AND THE TITLE IS, I NEVER THOUGHT IT WAS THIS BAD.

So with that said, let’s read Ezekiel 8.1-18.

Let’s review this Chapter because it needs some explaining.

And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month as I sat in my house, meaning, The time of this writing by The Prophet Ezekiel was in the sixth year of The Jewish exile into Babylon, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as Ezekiel sat in his house.

This writing was written by The Prophet in Babylon, current day Iraq, in 580 B.C.E./B.C.

And Ezekiel said, The elders of Judah sat before me, and the Hand of The LORD GOD fell upon me.

Judah was the southern Kingdom of Israel during the period when The Land of Israel was divided from 928 to 586 B.C.E./B.C.  The Tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Simeon, formed the southern Kingdom of Israel, while the remaining Tribes formed the northern Kingdom of Israel.

When Ezekiel wrote that The Hand of The LORD GOD fell there upon me, I believe that Ezekiel means that The Spirit of GOD was upon him.

Then Ezekiel wrote, I looked, and a Likeness, meaning The Shape, The Shape of GOD as The appearance of Fire.  And from His Waist upward as The Appearance of Brightness as the color of amber, a brilliant yellow and brown.

And He, The LORD GOD, put forth The form of a Hand and took me by a lock of my head, that is, it felt like GOD took him by the hair.  And The Spirit of GOD lifted me up between the earth and the heavens, and brought me in The Visions of GOD to Jerusalem to the door of the inner Gate of The Temple that looks toward the north where there was the image, that is, the idol of jealousy which provokes to jealousy.

GOD gave Ezekiel a vision in which The LORD brought Ezekiel to Jerusalem to The Door of The Inner Gate of The Temple where the idol of jealousy was that provokes GOD to anger and to jealousy.

And behold, Ezekiel writes, The Glory of The GOD of Israel was there.  The same as the vision that Ezekiel saw in the plain that is recorded in Ezekiel Chapter 1 where he saw The Glory of GOD, and a whirlwind that came out of the north, a great cloud, and a mass of fire coming out from the cloud, and a brightness was around it.

And from the fire came four living creatures, and each had four faces, and four wings.  They had feet like the sole of a calf’s foot.  And they sparkled like the color of polished brass.  And the living creatures had hands of a man under their wings on their four sides.

And their wings were joined one to the other.  They did not turn when they went.  They had four faces.  The face of a man, the face of a lion, the face of an ox, and the face of an eagle.  And two of their wings covered their bodies.  And their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps.  And the living creatures ran.

And wheels appeared.  They were the color of beryl, of emerald green, light blue, golden and yellow.  And they had four rings that were full of eyes that were so high they were dreadful.  And the likeness of the sky over the heads of the living creatures was the color of frightening crystal.

And above the sky was the likeness of a Throne of sapphire, the color of a dark blue gem.  And upon The Throne was THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.  And fire was round about Him.  And a rainbow was in the cloud as in the day of rain.  And when GOD spoke, the four living creatures stood and let down their wings.

Ezekiel saw that vision a second time.

Then GOD said to Ezekiel while he was at The Temple in Jerusalem in the vision, Son of man, lift up your eyes now toward the way of the north and look northward at the Gate of The Altar of this idol of jealousy in the entrance.

And GOD said to Ezekiel, Son of man, do you see what they do?  The great abomination that The House of Israel is doing here, that I should be far away from My Sanctuary?  But turn again, GOD said, and you will see greater abominations.

And GOD brought Ezekiel to The Door of The Court of The Temple and when I looked, Ezekiel said, Behold, a hole in the wall.

Then GOD said to Ezekiel, Dig now in the wall, and look at the Door.  And GOD said to Ezekiel, Go in and look at the wicked abominations that they do here.

So I went in, Ezekiel writes, and saw, and behold, maybe a better word is WOW, every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of The House of Israel carved on the wall all around, in The Temple.

This was in The Temple of GOD in Israel named after Jacob for a People whom GOD chose to be His Servant and Witnesses, to be a Holy People, a Special Treasure to THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE GOD OF ISRAEL.

This may have been a vision that GOD was showing Ezekiel, but GOD was showing Ezekiel the great abominations of His People, and why The LORD moved the Babylonians to kill so many Jewish People, and why GOD exiled His People out of The Land of Israel because of His Anger and His Great disappointment in His People, The People Israel.

You know, and I will say it again, The Greatest, Most Important Commandment of GOD is To Obey Him, for our good.  To Obey Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation.  Obedience to The LORD your GOD is Life.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, JOHN 18.37

But the majority of people in this world do not obey GOD.  Therefore the calamities happening today throughout the world.  Coronavirus, floods, fires, wars, hate, and the list goes on.

And people are taught by Bible teachers that GOD’S Law of Moses that contains GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Instructions, GOD’S Spoken Word, is abolished, not valid today.  They don’t have to do them they say.  And that is one of the dominant reasons this world is in trouble with GOD.

And Ezekiel writes, And there stood before them, the abominations, seventy men of the elders of The House of Israel.  And every man had a censer in his hand, a pan with fiery coals and incense in it.  And a thick cloud of incense went up.

Then GOD said to Ezekiel, Son of man, have you seen what the elders of The House of Israel do in the dark?  Every man in the rooms of his idols.  For they say, The LORD does not see me.  The Lord has forsaken The Land of Israel.

The LORD did not forsake The Land of Israel.  But rather The Jewish People turned away from The LORD their GOD and brought upon themselves evil judgments from GOD because of their abominations against The LORD.  The result of warnings ignored, warnings that are written in Torah, The Law of Moses that especially Jewish People should know.

And today, if Jewish People, in fact all People who do not know GOD’S Laws Written in The Law of Moses, history records that they better learn GOD’S Law, quickly, and do what He says, or they will face grief, plenty of grief.

Jesus, Yeshua The Messiah, will not save those who live a life of Disobedience to GOD, Disobeying The Law of Moses, that is The Law of GOD.

JOSHUA 24.26, 2 THESSALONIANS 2.9-12, PSALM 119.142 

And GOD said to Ezekiel, turn yet again, and you shall see greater abominations that they do.

Then GOD brought Ezekiel to the Door of The Gate of The LORD’S House, The Temple, that was toward the north, and behold, there sat women weeping for tammuz, an idol, a foreign god.

Then GOD said to Ezekiel, Have you seen this O Son of Man?  Turn yet again and you will see greater abominations than these.

And GOD brought Ezekiel into the inner court of The LORD’S House, and behold, at the door of The Temple of The LORD between the porch and The Altar, about twenty-five men, with their backs to The Temple, facing toward the east, worshiping the sun.

Then GOD said to Ezekiel, Have you seen this O Son of Man?  Is it a light thing to The House of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here?  For they have filled The Land of Israel with violence, and they have returned to provoke Me to anger, and they put the branch to their nose.

The Hebrew for Violence is Hamas, meaning wrong and violence.  Not only were GOD’S Chosen People committing idolatry, they did everything wrong in The Sight of GOD by disobeying everything GOD says.  And they also committed violence in The Land.

And GOD said, They put a branch to their nose.  That is, what they were doing stinks.

Therefore, GOD said, I will also deal in fury.  My Eye will not spare, neither will I have pity.  And though they cry in My Ears with a loud voice, I will not hear them.

Messiah tells this parable to the world.

The Kingdom of Heaven (The Kingdom of Heaven is GOD) is likened to a man who planted good seed in the field.  But while men were sleeping, his enemy came and planted tares among the wheat, and the enemy went his way.

Tares are noxious weeds that are harmful and corrupt.

And when the grain sprung up and brought forth fruit, then the tares appeared also.

And the servants of the farmer, The farmer in this parable is GOD, said to Him, Sir, did you not plant good seed in the field.  Where did these tares come from?

And the farmer said to them, An enemy has done this.  So the servants said to Him, Will you have us go and gather them up?

But the farmer said, No, lest while you gather up the tares, you root up also the wheat with them.

Let both grow together, He said, until the harvest.  And in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them.  But gather the wheat into the barn.

And Messiah’s Disciples came to Him and asked Him to explain the parable of the tares of the field.

And Messiah said to them, He that plants the good seed is The Son of Man.  The Son of Man is The Messiah Yeshua, Jesus, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

The field is the world.  The good seed are The Children of The Kingdom, that is, The Children of GOD.  But the tares are the children of the wicked one.

The enemy that planted the tares is the devil.  The harvest is the end of the world.  And the reapers are The Angels.

And therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire.  So shall it be in the end of the world.

The Son of Man, The Messiah Yeshua, will send forth His Angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all who offend, and those who do iniquity.

All who offend are those who cause people to sin, especially those who teach people not to obey The Law of Moses that is written in the first five books of The Bible.

And they who do iniquity sin against GOD by disobeying The Law of Moses Written in the first five books of The Bible.

1 JOHN 3.4

And GOD will cast them into a furnace of fire where there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth,

And Messiah said, Then shall The Righteous shine forth as the sun in The Kingdom of their Father.

The Righteous Obey GOD by Obeying Torah, The Law of Moses, and have Messiah Yeshua for their Atonement.  They will shine forth as the sun in The Kingdom of Their Father.

And Messiah said, Who has ears to hear, let them hear.

MATTHEW 13.24-30, 36-43

THIS IS AN END TIMES STUDY

Shalom,

Our study will continue in The Book of Ezekiel from Ezekiel 7.1-27

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THIS IS AN END TIMES STUDY.

So with that said, let’s read Ezekiel 7.1-27.

I thought that after the first six chapters of Ezekiel that GOD’S anger against His Jewish People for their sins of worshiping idols, and all their abominations of violating Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses, GOD’S anger would cool.  It did not.

In Ezekiel Chapter 7, The Word of The Lord came to Ezekiel.  That is GOD Spoke directly to The Prophet Ezekiel, either Face to face, or GOD Spoke to Ezekiel with His Voice inside his head.  And GOD said, You son of man, thus saith The LORD GOD to The Land of Israel, An end, that is destruction and doom, has come upon the four corners of The Land of Israel.

Now has the end come upon you, and I will send My anger upon you, and will judge you according to your ways, and will repay you for your abominations, their abominations of idolatry.

And My Eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will repay you for your ways, and your abominations shall be in the midst of you, and you shall know that I am The LORD.

Thus saith The LORD, evil, only evil, behold, has come.  Destruction has come.  Destruction has come.  It watches for you.  Behold it has come.  Trouble is near.  Now will I soon pour out fury upon you and accomplish My anger upon you, and I will judge you according to your ways, and repay you for all your abominations.  And My Eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity.  I will repay you according to your ways, and your abominations that are in the midst of you.  And you will know that I am The LORD Who punishes and kills.  Behold the day, behold, it has come.  Pride has spread and flourished.

Neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.  Everyone for their iniquity.  Because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.  I will do to them according to their way, and according to their crimes will I judge them, and they shall know that I am The LORD.

Ezekiel wrote these Words that GOD spoke to him concerning His Jewish People and The Land of Israel some 2,500 years ago when GOD exiled His People from southern Israel and Jerusalem to Babylon because of their abominations of idolatry, and their sins that follow idolatry, violating GOD’S Laws Written in Torah, The Law of Moses, and following the abominations of the heathen, and polluting The House of The LORD, and mocking The Messengers of GOD, and misusing His Prophets until the wrath of The LORD arose against His People till there was no remedy.

2 CHRONICLES 36.11-21

2,500 years later, today, why is The LORD Speaking to the world as in the days of Ezekiel in His wrath and anger?

Listen to PSALM 2.1-5.  Why do the heathen rage, and the peoples imagine a vain thing?

The Kings of the earth set themselves, and The Rulers take counsel together against The LORD, and Against His Anointed, The Messiah Yeshua, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

That is to say, The Kings of the earth, and The Rulers say, Let us tear off, and break away from The Words of GOD’S Mouth, and The Teachings and Doctrine of The Rock of Our Salvation.

He that sits in The Heavens shall laugh, and The LORD shall mock them, and ridicule them.  Then shall He speak to them in His wrath, and anger, and vex them.

DEUTERONOMY 32.1-4

Is that not happening today?  Anger rage, hate, breaking away from the teachings and instructions of GOD?

Here in The United States we have the plague of coronavirus, and so many other diseases, and hatred, and division, murder, riots, fires, we are still involved in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and who knows where else?  And hurricanes, floods, earth quakes, and more.

Other parts of the world experience the same.  Israel, that follows Torah, GOD’S Laws that no other country follows must be lacking something.  Because Israel has coronavirus, wars with its next door Arab neighbors, and other problems.

The United States has over 17 million cases of coronavirus and 314,000 deaths.

The world has a reported 74 million cases of covid, and 1.6 million deaths.

Coronavirus is not a China virus.   Covid may have started in China, but coronavirus is a judgment and pestilence from THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY that GOD has poured out on the world because the world Disobeys GOD.  The world Disobeys just about every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible.  Same as in the days of Noah.

People may not believe The Bible, or care what GOD says in The Bible, but people should believe GOD’S Judgments that He is pouring out on the world that GOD Speaks of in The Bible because of their disobedience to The Spoken Word of GOD in The Bible.

Here in The United States, and throughout the world, so many people are taught that Jesus abolished, yes that’s the word I read in The Wycliffe Bible Dictionary, abolished, that Jesus abolished the ceremonial legislation.  Meaning that Jesus abolished The Law of Moses because Jesus fulfilled the ceremonial law by observing its rites.

And by the death of Jesus, this false doctrine teaches that The Laws that are GOD’S Laws, The Words from GOD’S Mouth, and GOD’S Doctrine are abolished, and have no validity.  Plus you are taught that you are not under The Law.  This is all man made fiction, and lies.

BUT WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT HIS LAW?  WHAT DOES JESUS CHRIST, GOD ALMIGHTY, SAY ABOUT THE LAW OF MOSES?

GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA SAYS, FOR THIS CAUSE I CAME INTO THE WORLD THAT I SHOULD BEAR WITNESS TO THE TRUTH.

THE TRUTH IS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

JESUS CAME INTO THE WORLD TO TESTIFY THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE TRUTH AND MUST BE OBEYED.

JOHN 18.37, 2 THESSALONIANS 2.9-12, PSALM 119.142

The results of that lie that Jesus abolished The Law of Moses are GOD’S Judgments of hate, division, coronavirus, wars, murder, fires, earthquakes, floods, etc. and because people just don’t care what GOD says.

GOD gives us examples from the very beginning of The Bible of what happens to people and the world for Disobeying GOD.

Adam and Eve lost their Salvation and Eternal Life and died because they Disobeyed GOD.

GENESIS 2.16-17, GENESIS 3.1-6, 23-24, GENESIS 5.5

Enoch, one person mentioned in The Bible in his day whom GOD took up to Heaven, because Enoch walked with GOD.  Meaning Enoch Obeyed The Words that GOD Spoke, but the rest of the world apparently perished because they Disobeyed The Words that GOD Spoke.  Like today.

GENESIS 5.24

Everyone knows about Noah and his ark.  GOD killed everyone in the world by a flood except Noah and his family of eight, because GOD saw that the world was wicked, like today, they disobeyed The Words GOD Spoke.  But Noah Obeyed Every Word GOD Spoke.  GENESIS 6.1-9

Those teachings of Adam and Eve, Enoch, and Noah, are in the first six Chapters of The Bible in Genesis that are the beginning of The Bible, and the beginning of The Law of Moses.

The Law of Moses is the foundation of The Bible that contain GOD’S Teachings to Obey GOD.

And note that Adam and Eve, and Enoch, and Noah and his family were not Jewish.

And teaching that Jesus abolished The Law of Moses, and that The Law is no longer valid, is the same as satan saying to Eve, Even though GOD Commanded you not to eat from that tree lest you die, you will not surely die.

Bible Teachers must teach The Truth, to Obey Every Word GOD Speaks, as Moses, Jesus, and Peter teach in

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25, AND JAMES 3.1

Then there’s the false doctrine of the trinity.  Three Different GODS, One GOD.

Here’s what The New Bible Dictionary, second edition, by Tyndale Publishers writes about the trinity;

That there is but one GOD, that The Father, The Son, and The Spirit is each GOD; and that The Father, The Son, and The Spirit is each a distinct Person.

The word DISTINCT means Different in nature or quality, and dissimilar.  Dissimilar means not similar, unlike, and different.  In other words, the trinity is three different persons, or three different gods, but one GOD.

The trinity is a contradiction.  A direct opposition between things compared.  In other words, it is impossible for both right and wrong to be the same.  That three different gods are one GOD.

The Bible teaches One GOD, the trinity teaches three gods.

The teaching and understanding of many throughout the world is that Jesus Christ abolished The Law of Moses.

That Jesus who abolished The Law of Moses is not The Jesus Christ of The Bible, but another Jesus Christ, or another god.  Because THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE IS GOD ALMIGHTY.  AND JESUS CHRIST, GOD ALMIGHTY, WOULD NEVER ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.

HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, MICAH 5.2, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

Also Rejecting Messiah Yeshua, Who is Jesus Christ, GOD ALMIGHTY is rejecting GOD.

HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5

Genesis 1.1 reads, In the beginning, GOD created the heavens and the earth.  The Hebrew Word for GOD written throughout Genesis Chapter 1 is Elohim meaning GODS, G-O-D-S for The ONE GOD.  Because GOD is The Father, The Son of GOD, The Messiah Yeshua Who is Jesus Christ, The Spirit, The Holy Spirit, Ha Shem, and much more.  THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD, AND NOT DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER.

The Shema in Deuteronomy 6.4 reads, Shema Yisrael, Adonai Elohaynu, Adonai Ekhud.  Hear O Israel The LORD Our GOD, The LORD is One.

Shema means Hear and Obey.  Hear and Obey Every Word GOD Speaks.  And there is only One GOD.

The Hebrew for One as in One GOD is  Ekhud meaning One but a Plurality of One.  GOD is a Plurality of One.  That Plurality of One GOD is that GOD  is The Father, The Son, The Messiah Yeshua, The Spirit, The Holy Spirit, Ha Shem, and more.

All are One and The Same GOD.  There are no differences, there are no distinctions because all are One and The Same GOD.  There is only One GOD.  GOD Teaches that throughout The Scriptures.

Now, everybody wants to go to Heaven.  The Bible doesn’t write a whole lot about Heaven and hell, but GOD gives us some insight of both.  Hell is a place of torments.  While Heaven is a place of Beauty, and Magnificence, and Perfection, and Peace, and Eternal Life, and no sin, where  GOD will wipe away all tears from your eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things will have passed away.

LUKE 16.23, REVELATION 21.1-5, REVELATION 22

Why does GOD take people to Heaven?  Because they have atonement either today in Messiah Yeshua, or before Messiah Yeshua, through the animal sacrifice, but they lived their life by Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible, or they Blessed The Jewish People and Israel.

Today the people who go to hell are those who lived their lives sinning against GOD by violating GOD’S Law of Moses.  1 John 3.4 or believed in Messiah Yeshua, but did not live their life by Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible that includes The Law of Moses.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4

So, we don’t know what our body will be like in Heaven but our body will be like The Body of GOD, Messiah Yeshua.  For The Bible says, when GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

PSALM 17.15, 1 JOHN 3.2

HANUKKAH, A STORY OF HEROISM TOLD IN JEWISH FAMILIES FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION FOR 2,185 YEARS. BUT YOU WILL BE SHOCKED TO KNOW WHAT BROUGHT ON HANUKKAH?

Shalom and Happy Hanukkah,

Today is the second day of Hanukkah, an eight day Jewish Holiday.

Hanukkah in Hebrew means Dedication, for The Rededication of The Second Temple in 165 B.C.E. / B.C.  The result of victory and heroism of The Jewish People, led by The Maccabees who heroically fought a guerilla war, and won against a mighty Syrian army that ruled Israel with an anti-Semitic iron fist.

Maccabee in Hebrew means Hammer.

And although Hanukkah is not a Commanded Festival of The LORD, Hanukkah is Prophesied in The Bible, and tells us why there is Hanukkah, which we will address in this Message.  You might be shocked.

Hanukkah is celebrated by The Jewish People throughout the world as a great Festival of joy and happiness.  It is a celebration of Jewish heroism, and an important time of remembrance for Jewish People, and all Peoples.

Why is Hanukkah important for non Jewish People?

Because, had the Syrians succeeded in destroying The Jewish People and Israel from off the face of the earth as so many nations have tried, and failed, the Sacred Writings of Tnach, The Old Testament Scriptures would have been destroyed by the enemies of GOD, along with The Jewish People who Wrote The Bible, The Old and The New Testaments.

And without The Jewish People there would be no Jewish Messiah, Yeshua Ha Mashiakh, or as He is called in Christianity, Jesus Christ.

There would be no Atonement, no Salvation, and no New Testament.  The New Testament is written by Jewish People.

The only writings about GOD would be the fictions of men.

And without The Jewish People, and without The Bible, there would be no knowledge of GOD, no understanding of GOD.  There would be no Biblical Teaching of GOD.  There would be no Biblical Teaching of The Word of GOD.  No Biblical Teaching of GOD’S Laws, Teachings, His Instructions , and His Commandments.  And there would be no Biblical Teaching that THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

There would be no Messiah Yeshua for Atonement. No Salvation, no Eternal Life in Heaven, but eternal death, and hell for all mankind if  there were no Jewish People, and no Bible that Jewish People wrote, to learn and know The Truth of GOD.

But fortunately for the world, GOD has Ordained His Jewish People to be an Eternal People, for The LORD Our GOD protects His People from the hands of all her enemies.

ISAIAH 66.22 

Yet The Jewish People suffer bitter judgment from GOD because of Jewish sin.  Hanukkah is the result of Jewish sin to be explained a little later.

The enemies of The Jewish People and Israel are the enemies of GOD, and cursed.

GENESIS 12.3 

HOW IS THE WORLD BLESSED IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE?

The world is Blessed in The Jewish People when they Bless Israel and The Jewish People.  The world is Blessed in The Jewish People by having Atonement in The Jewish Messiah Yeshua.  And the world is Blessed in The Jewish People when they live their lives according to all GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses that GOD gave to Israel for all the world to live by, thus preventing you from sinning against GOD.

1 JOHN 3.4

JESUS NEVER ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES,

GOD’S formula for Salvation and Eternal Life in Heaven and a good healthy life on earth is having Faith in Messiah Yeshua for your Atonement, and living your life by Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes The Law of Moses that is not difficult to do.

GENESIS 12.3, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, JOSHUA 1.8-9, ISAIAH 43.10-12, ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4 

Hanukkah is not taught in The Bible, though The Prophet Daniel Prophesies of the sore events of Hanukkah that we will look into.

Also, Yeshua The Messiah was in The Temple during Hanukkah, and asked the question, If You are The Messiah, tell us plainly,  And Messiah told them plainly that He is The Messiah, and you don’t believe.  And He said, I and My Father are One.

JOHN 10.22-33

Hanukkah, or The Rededication of The Second Temple took place on the 25th day of The Hebrew month Kislev in 165 B.C.E./B.C.  This year, the first day of Hanukkah was yesterday, December 11th.

The Temple was Rededicated because the madman  king of Syria, Antiochus Epiphanes, the Jew hater who ruled Israel at the time, polluted The Temple of GOD into a pagan shrine with his Greek gods, and his Greek goddesses, with their Greek statues, and Greek idols, and their pig sacrifices on The Temple Altar.

The Rededication of The Temple took place immediately after The Maccabees defeated the Syrian army.

The Jewish People quickly took back their Temple which was disgusting from all the Greek abominations.  The People took back their City, The City of Jerusalem, and their Country, The Land of Israel.  And they kicked out the Syrian king Antiochus Epiphanes and his armies from The Land of Israel.

The Jewish fighters were led by The Maccabees who were a Priestly Dynasty of Levites of The Hasmonean family.

As a point of information, The Hasmonean Period in Jewish History began with The Jewish rebellion against the anti-Jewish atrocities of  Antiochus Epiphanes that brought on Israel’s great Hanukkah victory.

It was also the emergence of the three main Jewish Sects of the day.  The Pharisees, The Sadducees. and The Essenes.

The Pharisees accepted The Oral Law, that is The Talmud, the commentary of Torah, The Law of Moses.  They maintained the belief in the immortality of the soul.  And they taught the resurrection of the dead, the existence of angels, and Divine Providence, GOD’S Care and Guidance over all His creatures.  And they believed in freedom of will, and not predestination.

The Sadducees were a Priestly aristocracy who refused to believe in angels, in resurrection, and in the immortality of the soul.  And did not accept the concept of a binding oral law, The Talmud, but adhered only to those Laws written in Torah, The Law of Moses.

The Essenes were a Religious group that flourished in Israel from the mid second century B.C.E./B.C. to the destruction of The Second Temple in 70 C.E./A.D.

Most scholars believe that The Dead Sea Scrolls, that are pre Christian, were written by The Essenes.  The Essenes held eschatological beliefs, the doctrine concerning the fate of human beings after death, and the end of days .  They believed in Predestination, The Community of The Elect for Salvation, and the children of darkness for destruction.

The term Maccabees is taken from The Hebrew Mah’kah’vah, meaning Hammer, or Mah’kah’veem, meaning Hammers.

So this Antiochus Epiphanes, the Syrian king, set out to destroy and end Judaism, like Hitler.

Among his insane edicts, he ordered the end of all Torah observance for Jewish People.  Thus for Jews  being forced to abolish all GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses, that would make us like all other Religions that reject GOD’S Laws Written in Torah, The Law of Moses.  Thus making Judaism a lawless people in The Sight of GOD.

GOD says, I will Bless those who Bless you, and curse those who curse you.  GENESIS 12.3

GOD cursed Antiochus Epiphanes, killing him one year after The Jewish People Rededicated The Temple to its Rightful Owner, THE KING OF ISRAEL, GOD ALMIGHTY.

The reason Hanukkah is an eight day holiday is because when The Temple was Rededicated to The LORD, The Pure Oil found in The Temple that was used for the burning of the great seven branch Temple Menorah was only sufficient to burn for one day.  But miraculously the oil burned for eight days until more oil was provided for The Menorah to burn continuously.

Today, The Hanukkah Menorah, called in Hebrew, Hanukkiyah, has nine branches, as compared to The Menorah’s seven branches, the design that GOD revealed to Moses on Mount Sinai.

EXODUS 25.8-9, 31-40

The nine branches of The Hanukah Hanukkiyah are for each day of the eight day Hanukkah Celebration.  And the middle candle, called The Shammash, meaning Servant, is used to light the candles,  starting with one candle on the first day and adding a candle each day for eight days.

Let’s look at The Biblical Prophesy that GOD gave to The Prophet Daniel some 374 years before Hanukkah that is written in Daniel 8.

DANIEL 8.1  King Belshazzar was the last king of the Babylonian Empire.  He was the king who became famous for the handwriting on the wall in Daniel 5.  His Empire consisted of current day Iraq, Syria, part of Turkey, much of Iran, Lebanon, the northern portion of Saudi Arabia, and Israel.  And GOD gave Daniel this Prophetic vision.

Again, GOD gave this vision to Daniel some 374 years before Hanukkah in which GOD Prophesies of the king of Syria, Antiochus Epihanes, the Jew hating king, and the tragic events to The Jewish People leading up to Hanukkah, and what The Jewish People did to bring on Hanukkah.

DANIEL 8.2-8  The ram is explained later in the Prophesy as being symbolic of The great Persian Empire of 2,500 years ago.

The two horns of the ram are symbolic of the kings of Persia and Media.

Today, Iran is a combination of those two ancient countries.

The Persian Empire was huge.  It included the entire Middle East from Ethiopia to India.

And the one horn higher than the other is symbolic of Cyrus The Great, the Founder of The Persian Empire.

The ram, or The Persian Empire was so powerful, no army could stand against it.

But appearing in the vision is Greece, the male goat in The Prophesy.  The notable, or remarkable horn is symbolic of The King of Greece, Alexander The Great.

The Greek army led by their twenty year old king, Alexander The Great, destroyed The Great Persian Army.

GOD rules in The Kingdom of men, and He will give it to whomsoever He will, good or bad, weak or strong.

HEBREW BIBLE DANIEL 4.14, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DANIEL 4.17, DANIEL 5.21

Greece became a great empire spanning three continents, Asia, that included the entire Middle East to India, and Africa, and Europe.  But the remarkable horn that was broken was its King, Alexander The Great.  He died at the age of 33.

And the four notable horns that replaced Alexander were four of his Generals who ruled The Empire.  And one of those Generals was Seleucus who ruled Syria, and Babylon which is current day Iraq, and Phoenicia, current day Lebanon.  And Israel.

Toward the four winds of Heaven perhaps means that GOD gave those four Generals the power to be the most powerful Kingdoms on earth in their day.

DANIEL 8.8-10  The little horn that descended from General Seleucus years later was Antiochus Epiphanes, the ruthless Jew hating king of Syria.  A madman who persecuted and killed Jews, desecrated The Temple in Jerusalem with his abominable idols, and hate of Torah, GOD’s Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.

Antiochus hated The GOD of CREATION.  And that is a picture of the Anti Christ.  Anti Christ means Anti GOD.

The Pleasant Land is The Land of Israel.  And The Pleasant Land Israel has been conquered numerous times by Gentile nations.

First Assyria conquered northern Israel in 722 B.C.E./B.C.  Then the Babylonians conquered southern Israel and Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E./B.C.,  then The Persians, The Greeks, and The Syrians under Seleucus.  Then The Romans. followed by The Byzantine Empire, the eastern part of the late Roman Empire.  Then The Muslim Arabs in 600 C.E./ A.D.  Then The Turks, The Egyptians, and then The Crusaders who slaughtered thousands of Jews and Muslims, and outlawed Jews from living in Jerusalem.

Then The Muslims again under Saladin conquered Jerusalem.  Yet The Crusaders kept up their raids of death in Israel.  Then The Mamelukes, soldier slaves of Egypt.  Then The Ottoman Empire in 1517.

Even Napolean took his shot at Israel in 1798.  And he had some victories in Gaza, Haifa, Hebron, and Jaffa.  But by June of 1799, GOD laid upon Napolean and his French army a plague that decimated them.  And they left Israel and returned to Egypt.

And today The Palestinian Arabs yearn to conquer Israel, a Land that never belonged to them.  They should investigate GENESIS 12.3.

And The Holy One Of Israel, The Messiah Yeshua, will Return in the future, and destroy all the enemies of Israel, past, present, and future by melting their bodies.

ZECHARIAH 14.1-5,12

DANIEL 8.11  Antiochus the mad man magnified himself against The Prince of The Host Who is MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY, The Prince of The Jewish People.  Antiochus Epiphines called himself GOD, saying, he is GOD manifested.

Antiochus ended the sacrifice at The Temple.

The future anti Christ will also call himself GOD.  And he will also stop the sacrifice at the future Temple bringing on great world wide tribulation.

2 THESSALONIANS 2.1-4, DANIEL 9.27

The place of Antiochus Epiphines’ Sanctuary was The Temple.  And GOD cast his place down, destroying him because he polluted The Temple with his idols, and pig sacrifices, and pagan worship.

As will the future anti Christ.

MATTHEW 24.15-22

Antiochus Epiphines and the anti Christ are similar.

DANIEL 8.12  To my knowledge, Jewish People are rarely, if ever, taught that Jewish transgression against GOD brought on the horrible anti Semitic events that led up to Hanukkah.

The word Transgression written in Daniel 8.12 in Hebrew is Fah’sah, meaning, Rebellion, Sin, Transgression, and Trespass.

Jewish transgression was Disobedience to GOD.  Refusing to obey GOD’S Laws Written in Torah, The Law of Moses.  And that brought on the horrors to The Jewish People because GOD’S Jewish People destroyed The Truth.  They disobeyed Their GOD by disobeying Torah Written in the first five Books of The Bible.

DANIEL 8.13-27  Then Daniel heard a Kadosh, a Holy One, a Saint speaking to another in the vision, saying, How long will there be no sacrifice?  How long will The Temple be desecrated?  How long will The Jewish People be persecuted and killed?

For six and a half years.  Then The Sanctuary will be cleansed and purified, and made right.  And Syrian rule upon Israel will come to an end, and the persecution and killing Jews will stop.

And The angel spoke to Daniel while he was in a deep sleep on his face toward the ground.  And explained to Daniel the reason for GOD’S anger against His Jewish People Israel.  Because of Jewish disobedience to The LORD their GOD, disobeying The Spoken Word of GOD in Torah.

And the angel explained the end of the persecutions that brought on Hanukkah.  And the meaning of the ram and the goat.

Explaining that GOD, Ha Shem, The GOD OF ISRAEL, brought upon His Jewish People Judgment from the madman king Antiochus Epiphanes because of their sins of violating Torah.  Continuously rejecting GOD and His Laws Written in The Law of Moses.

But GOD pardons sin.  He is Gracious with Great Kindness, and never forsakes His People.

And this is how GOD forgives sin.  GOD requires Atonement for your sins.  And Atonement can only be made through Faith in The Jewish Messiah Yeshua, followed by Obedience to Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that is not difficult.  There is no other way, for it is The Blood that makes Atonement for the soul.

LEVITICUS 17.8,9,11, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 53.10, EZEKIEL 18.21, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 JOHN 5.3. 1 JOHN 1.9

Continuing with GOD’S Prophesy in Daniel 8.24, Antiochus’ power was mighty but not by his own power. And he shall destroy the Mighty Holy People, ( The Jewish People).

Antiochus Epiphines’ power came from GOD.

1 CHRONICLES 29.11-12, 2 THESSALONIANS 2,5-17, ISAIAH 45.7

Paul writes in 2 Thessalonians 2.10, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they received not The Love of The Truth that they might be saved.

The Bible, including 2 Thessalonians 2.10, is written to Jews and Gentiles to Obey The Truth, The law of Moses, that you shall be saved.

Antiochus proclaimed peace to The Jewish People but instead killed them.

And Antiochus stood up to The Prince of princes, Yeshua The Messiah, GOD ALMIGHTY.  But GOD killed him without hand, by a fatal disease.

GOD WAS HEARTBROKEN BECAUSE OF THE IDOLATROUS HEARTS OF HIS PEOPLE.

Shalom,

Our Message this morning will be from Ezekiel 6.1-14.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD WAS HEARTBROKEN BECAUSE OF THE IDOLATROUS HEARTS OF HIS PEOPLE.

So with that said, let’s read Ezekiel 6.1-14.

Let’s review what GOD said to Ezekiel in this Chapter.

GOD said, Son of man, set your face toward the mountains of Israel and prophesy against them.

And say to the mountains, Hear The Word of The LORD GOD.  Thus Saith The LORD GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Behold, I, even I will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your high places.

The high places in Israel are where the idols of The Children of Israel were for their pagan worship.  And because of those high places and idols on the mountains of Israel, GOD brought death and destruction to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys.

And your altars shall be desolate, GOD said, and your images shall be broken, and I will throw down your dead before your idols.

And I will lay the dead carcasses of The Children of Israel before their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars.

And all your homes, and your cities, shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate, and your altars will be laid waste, and made desolate.  And your idols shall be broken and cease, and your images cut down and abolished.

And the dead shall fall in the midst of The People and they shall know that I am The LORD.

Yet I will leave a remnant that you shall have some that escape the sword among the nations when you shall be scattered throughout the countries.

And they that escape of you, GOD said, shall remember The LORD among the nations where they will be carried captives, because I am heartbroken with their whorish heart, worshipping idols.  They have departed from Me.  And with their eyes that go a whoring after their idols, and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.

And they shall know that I am The LORD.  That I have not said in vain that I would do this evil to them.

And The LORD said, Thus Saith The LORD, Strike your hands together, and stomp with your foot, and say, O, for all the evil abominations of The House of Israel, for they shall fall by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence.

He that is far off shall die of the pestilence, and he that is near shall fall by the sword, and he that remains, and is besieged shall die by the famine.  Thus I will accomplish My fury upon them.

Then shall they know that I am The LORD when their dead shall be among their idols all around their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every strong tree, the place where they offered sweet savor to all their idols.

So will I stretch out My Hand upon them, and make The Land a desolation, more desolate than the desert, in all their homes, and they shall know that I am The LORD.

GOD’S Chosen People, The Children of Israel turned away from Their GOD, The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, by going after their idols, and worshipping them rather than Worshipping Their GOD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL.  And because of their abominations, GOD was heartbroken.  And GOD brought great evil upon His People.

We all know what it means to be heartbroken.  Suffering from sorrow, grief, disappointment, and crushed.  GOD was Heartbroken because His Jewish People turned from Him to worship idols, and the evils they committed in all their abominations by being prideful, yes, prideful, being Disobedient to Every Word GOD Spoke to them.

GOD Chose The Jewish People to be His Chosen People Whom GOD set His love upon, calling His People, a Holy People, and a Special People to Himself out of all the peoples that are on the face of the earth.

EZEKIEL 6.9, DEUTERONOMY 7.6

And GOD was Heartbroken with His Jewish People because Holy People, whether you are Jewish or not Jewish, Holy People Obey GOD, Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes Torah, The Law of Moses.  Holy People do not go after idols and other gods. That is paganism.  And Holy People believe in One LORD Whose One Name is Yeshua, meaning Salvation, Deliverance, Safe, Help, and Victory.

ZECHARIAH 14.9, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 12.2, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

The Bible is GOD’S Book.

The Bible is written by Jewish Prophets such as Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, David, and others who recorded The Words that GOD Spoke to them for the world to read, and learn, and do.  Other writers in The Bible were GODLY Jewish People who Wrote Words that GOD laid upon their hearts.

And The Writers of The New Testament in The Bible, that is as Jewish as The Old Testament, were all Jewish.  Perhaps Luke was not Jewish.

The Bible is a Special Book about GOD.  The Words that GOD Spoke, His Acts, His Wonders, and His Miracles that He did during Bible times are recorded in The Bible.

GOD Teaches the world about His Creation, and that He Spoke His Creation into existence.  And GOD Teaches the world about Eternity in Heaven, or eternity in hell.

GENESIS 1.1-31, PSALM 33.6-9, LUKE 16.22-23

And GOD Teaches the world that there is Only One GOD and No Others.

GOD never teaches a trinity of one GOD being three different persons, or three different gods.

GOD Teaches history in The Bible from The Beginning to Eternity.  And GOD Teaches the world the beginning of humanity.  The Gentiles who are not Jewish, and The Jewish People who are from Abraham and Sarah.  But GOD teaches that all humanity comes from Adam and Eve.

And GOD Teaches the world about His Jewish Messiah Yeshua Who is THE ALMIGHTY GOD, THE ONE AND ONLY GOD Who came to Israel 2,000 years ago to be The New Covenant for our Atonement by giving His Life as a Human Being, and shedding His Blood, for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.

LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11

MESSIAH NEVER CAME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.   

Messiah also came to live His Life according to Torah, The Law of Moses, leaving the world an example how not to sin by living His Life by Every Word Written in The Law of Moses.

1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 JOHN 5.3

GOD Teaches in The Bible that Every Word He Speaks from Genesis through Revelation is for the Heavens, and the earth.  Meaning, that GOD requires all in the Heavens, and all on the earth to Obey Every Word He Speaks in The Bible.

DEUTERONOMY 32.1-4

And GOD Teaches The world in The Bible, If you live your life by Every Word He Speaks from Genesis through Revelation, GOD sees you as Righteous and Just.  And He will Bless you with a Good, Prosperous life on earth, and you will inherit Eternal Life in Heaven.

Just about every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible, He Spoke to Jewish People, making His Chosen People His Servant and His Witnesses from The Words GOD Spoke to them.

How do we know that GOD created the Heavens and the earth and all that are in them?  And Spoke The Creation into existence?  Because GOD Spoke those very Words to Moses, that Moses recorded, and are written in The Bible from Genesis through Deuteronomy for the world to know, and believe, and live by.

And Those Spoken Words of GOD given to Moses are The Law of Moses, called in Hebrew Ha Torah, The Torah, The Law.

And how do we know how to live a GODLY Life Pleasing to GOD, doing The Will of GOD, and knowing that GOD will Bless you with a Good, Prosperous, and Successful Life when you do what GOD says?  You know because GOD gave Moses all His Laws, Commandments, Statutes, and Ordinances for all humanity to live our lives for our good.

And GOD tells us how to be Blessed, and how to be Cursed.

DEUTERONOMY 28.1-68

And how do we know what we must do to inherit Eternal Life in Heaven?

We know what we must do because GOD gives us examples of people in The Bible whom GOD took to Heaven.  And GOD tells us why He brought them to Heaven from The Words GOD Spoke to Moses in Torah, The Law of Moses.

Enoch is first in The Bible whom GOD took up into Heaven because Enoch Walked With GOD.  Meaning, Enoch followed GOD by being Obedient to Every Word GOD Spoke in His day some 6,000 years ago.

Enoch was in the lineage of Adam and Eve, as we all are.  But I believe that Enoch was alive while Adam and Eve were living.  And I’m pretty sure Adam and Eve told Enoch, and others in their family of great, great, great, etc., grandchildren, those who would listen to them, about satan tricking them in The Garden of Eden to Disobey GOD, rather than satan telling them to Obey GOD.  Remember, the people back then lived for many hundreds of years.

Everyone knows the story that GOD Commanded Adam not to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  For in the day you eat from that tree, GOD said to Adam, You will surely die.  I believe the entire world knows this story, and that Adam and Eve Disobeyed GOD, and they died as GOD promised Adam if he Disobeyed Him.  GOD created Adam and Eve without sin to live forever in a Garden of Eden world.

But Enoch was different than the world.  Enoch took Adam and Eve’s story to heart and he obeyed every Word GOD spoke in his day.  How did Enoch know every Word GOD Spoke?  I’m not sure, but GOD always has His People to Preach The Truth of what GOD says.

But most of the world see the story of Adam and Eve, and satan, in The Garden of Eden as a nice little bedtime story, but ignore its great importance.  And the importance of that story is the same today as it was then.  If you Obey what GOD Says, you inherit Eternal Life in Heaven.  But those who Disobey what GOD says in The Bible receive eternal death from GOD while they are yet alive in hell.

LUKE 16.19-31

IS ANYBODY LISTENING?

Adam was nine hundred and thirty years old when he died.  The Bible doesn’t say how old Eve was when she died.  But Enoch was three hundred and sixty five years old when GOD took him up to Heaven.

GENESIS 2.1-3,15-17, GENESIS 3.1-4, GENESIS 5.5,23

Noah and his wife, and their three sons, and their wives are also recorded in The Bible as being Right with GOD.  We know that Noah was Right with GOD because GOD told Noah that he was a Just man and Perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with GOD.

GOD SEES US AS PERFECT WHEN WE OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. 

1 KINGS 8.61 

The Hebrew for PERFECT is SHAH’LAYM, meaning, Perfect, Peace, Safe and Sound.

And for the same reasons that Enoch knew how to walk with GOD from the story of Adam and Eve, and GODLY People Preaching The Spoken Word of GOD, Noah lived His Life by Every Word GOD Spoke.  And GOD rewarded Noah and his family by saving them from the flood, while GOD destroyed everyone else on earth, the millions or billions of people in Noah’s day, BECAUSE THEY DISOBEYED GOD.  THEY DISOBEYED THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

IS ANYBODY LISTENING?

Humanity knows what GOD requires of them.  And that is to Obey GOD.  Because The Breath that we breathe is The Spirit of GOD.

The Spirit of GOD is in every human being, every living thing, and every thing.  GOD is our life.  People know if they are Obeying GOD or not.  GOD has His ways of telling people right from wrong.  And doing wrong is pride.  I’ll do it my way, not your way GOD.  Pride.

AND GOD ALWAYS HAS HIS PEOPLE TO TEACH THE TURTH.  AND THE TRUTH IS EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.  NOT ONE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IS EVER ABOLISHED. 

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 40.8, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4 

Today we have The Bible to read what GOD Says. We read The Blessings for Obeying what GOD Says, and we also read The Curses for Disobeying what GOD Says as The Children of Israel found out from what we read in Ezekiel Chapter 6.

JOB 32.8, JEREMIAH 10.23, COLOSSIANS 1.17

In the days of Noah, GOD said the people were wicked, meaning evil, wrong, ungodly, by being  Disobedient to what GOD Said.  Because, like today, they obeyed nothing GOD Said.  And that is sin.  And GOD calls that Pride.  But Noah obeyed GOD.

IS ANYBODY LISTENING TO GOD?

GENESIS 6.5-9, GENESIS 7.1-5, ISAIAH 24.4-6, 1 JOHN 3.4

Next to go to Heaven and Recorded in The Bible is Abraham.  I’m assuming that Sarah his wife is with him as is his son Isaac, and hopefully their family, and of course Jacob, and hopefully his family.

When GOD told Moses the history of man from the day of Creation recorded from Genesis 1.1, GOD told Moses what He was thinking about Abraham when GOD and Abraham were walking side by side just before GOD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.  GOD thought to Himself, Shall I hide from Abraham the thing which I do, seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him.

For I know him that he will command his children and his household after him, and they will Keep The Way of The LORD to do Justice and Righteousness.

GENESIS 18.17-19

Abraham is in Heaven because he Obeyed GOD, and I’m sure Sarah, his wife is with him.

IS ANYBODY LISTENING?

LUKE 16.22-31, VERSE 22

Yeshua/Jesus The Messiah also leaves us an example to follow to get to Heaven, Don’t sin.  Sin is Violating The Spoken Word of GOD Written in The Law of Moses and throughout The Bible.

1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 3.4

GOD was heartbroken because He Personally gave His Word, and His Laws, and His Teachings to His Chosen People.  But unfortunately, many of them blew it.  They refused to obey what GOD Commanded them.  And as GOD said, And they shall know that I am The LORD, and I have not said in vain that I would do this evil to them.

WOW

Shalom,

Our teaching this morning will come from Ezekiel 5.1-17.

And The title of our message is, WOW.

So let’s read Ezekiel 5.1-17.

These words from The Prophet Ezekiel were written some 2,600 years ago in Babylon, current day Iraq, because of Jewish Disobedience to GOD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL.

3,400 years ago during the days of Moses in the wilderness on the way to The Promised Land after being Delivered by GOD from 400 years of Egyptian slavery, GOD said to The Children of Israel, who are The Jewish People today,

For you are a Holy People to The LORD Your GOD.

The LORD Your GOD has Chosen You to be a Special People to Himself out of all the peoples that are on the face of the earth.

The LORD did not set His love upon you nor choose you because you were more in number than any people, for you were the fewest of all people.  But because The LORD Loved you, and because He would keep His oath which He had sworn to your fathers has He brought you out of Egypt with a Mighty Hand and Delivered you out of the house of slavery from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Know therefore, GOD said, That The LORD Your GOD, He is GOD, The Faithful GOD Who keeps Covenant and Mercy with them who love Him and keep His Commandments to a thousand generations.

And repays them who hate Him to their face to destroy them.  He will not be slack to them who hate Him.  He will repay them to their face.

You shall therefore keep The Commandments and The Statutes and The Judgments which I command you this day to do them.

WHEN GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, HE SAID TO THEM, FOR YOUR ARE A HOLY PEOPLE TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.

HOLY PEOPLE ARE JEWISH PEOPLE AND GENTILE PEOPLE WHO OBEY GOD.  HOLY PEOPLE LIVE THEIR LIVES BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT IS NOT DIFFICULT, THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE THAT IS NOT DIFFICULT. 

AND TODAY, HOLY PEOPLE HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.

But hating GOD is Disobeying anything GOD Says in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes Torah, The Law of Moses, and not having Atonement in The Jewish Messiah Yeshua, for it is the blood that makes Atonement for the soul.

LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11, DEUTERONOMY 7.6-11, ISAIAH 53.10. 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 3.4

In 586 B.C.E./B.C. GOD exiled His Jewish People into captivity in Babylon for seventy years because, as GOD said, They hated Him.  They worshipped idols, and disobeyed just about every Word GOD Spoke to them that is written in Torah, The Law of Moses, and The Prophets and misused The Prophets of GOD.  Therefore GOD sent them into captivity for seventy years to Babylon.

DEUTERONOMY 7.10, 25-26

GOD also says that The Jewish People will receive of The LORD’S Hand double for all their sins.

ANTI SEMITISM IS BECAUSE OF JEWISH SINS AGAINST GOD.

ISAIAH 40.2, JEREMIAH 16.14-18, ZECHARIAH 9.12

Sin is despising The Word of The LORD by not doing what GOD says in The Bible.  Sin is breaking any Commandment of GOD in The Bible.  GOD’S Commandments are His Laws Written in the first five books of The Bible in Torah, The Law of Moses. And sin is violating any Word that GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation.

And sin is rejecting Jesus, The Jewish Messiah Yeshua Who is The GOD of Israel, The GOD of The Jewish People, Adonai Elohaynu, Ha Shem, The GOD of all the earth, Who gave His Life and shed His blood for His Jewish People and all the world.

MATTHEW 23.37-39, LUKE 19.41-44

THE WORLD TODAY IS SUFFERING FOR DISOBEYING GOD, DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT SO MANY PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD READ IN THEIR BIBLE, BUT REJECT WHAT THEY READ.  THAT IS HATING GOD.

BELIEVING IN JESUS MAKES ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. 

Let’s review Ezekiel 5.1-17.

Speaking to The Prophet Ezekiel, GOD said, And you son of man, take a sharp knife, the razor of a barber, and cause it to pass upon your head, and your beard.  Then take three balances to weigh, and divide the hair.

You shall burn with fire a third part of your hair in the center of the city when the days of the siege are complete.  See Ezekiel  4.1-3.

And you shall take a third part of your hair and strike it with destruction with the knife.  And the third part of your hair you shall scatter in the wind.  And I will draw a sword after them.

GOD is saying, He will burn The City of Jerusalem, and destroy The City of Jerusalem.  And He will scatter The Jewish People in The City of Jerusalem, and throughout southern Israel, and the sword will chase them.

This is what GOD did to Jerusalem using the Babylonian armies to destroy Jerusalem because of Jewish sin, and their abominations against Their GOD, The GOD of Israel.

And GOD said to Ezekiel, You shall take from your hair a few in number and bind them in your clothing.

Then take them again, and toss them in the fire, and burn them in the fire.  For there shall a fire come forth into all The House of Israel.  Because of their sins against GOD.

And GOD said, Thus saith The LORD GOD, This is Jerusalem.  I have set Jerusalem in the center of the nations and countries that are round about her.

And The Jewish People of Jerusalem have changed My Judgments into wickedness more than the nations.

GOD’S Judgments are His Decisions, Verdicts, and Sentencings that He does according to His Word in Torah, The Law of Moses.

And GOD said, They have changed My Statutes more than the countries that are around her, for they have refused My Judgments and My Statutes.  They have not walked in them.  They have not obeyed them, but rather they have rejected them.

Therefore, thus saith The LORD GOD, Because you multiplied your sins more than the nations that are around you, and have not walked in My Statutes, neither have you kept My Judgments, neither have you done according to the judgments of the nations, and they don’t even know Me.  They don’t even know My Word.  But you I have instructed in My Word.

Therefore thus saith The LORD GOD, Behold, I, even I am against you, and I will execute Judgments in the midst of you in the sight of the nations.

And I will do in you that which I have not done, and what I will not do any more the like of it because of all your abominations.

Hundreds of years earlier, just before Moses died in the wilderness, and just before The Children of Israel entered and possessed the land of Canaan that became The Land of Israel, Moses Prophesied that The Children of Israel would corrupt themselves, and turn away from The LORD their GOD.  And it happened just as Moses said.

DEUTERONOMY 31.28-29

Listen to what The LORD GOD said to The Children of Israel that He will never do again.

The fathers shall eat the sons, and the sons shall eat their fathers.  And GOD said, I will execute Judgments in you, and the whole remnant of you will I scatter into the winds.

Does anyone other than certain Jewish People teach The Spoken Word of GOD Written in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes all GOD’S Laws Written in The Law of Moses in the first five books of The Bible?

Does anyone other than certain Jewish People teach the curses for not doing what GOD Commands in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that include The Law of Moses that are not difficult?

Because GOD says in Prophecy of what will certainly happen in the future, and GOD does not mess around.  See the days of Noah.

GOD says, The earth shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled, for The LORD Has spoken This Word.

The earth is defiled under the inhabitants of it, because the people on earth have Transgressed The Laws of GOD Written in The Law of Moses in the first five books of The Bible, Changed The Ordinances of GOD, and have broken The Everlasting Covenant, The Word that GOD Speaks in The Bible.

Therefore The curse has devoured the earth, and they that dwell on it are desolate.  Therefore the inhabitants of  the earth are burned and few left.

ISAIAH 24.3-6

Look at the world today.  I don’t see it getting any better.  But you can fully protect yourself and your family by opening a Bible and doing everything GOD says from Genesis through Revelation.  Knowing that without a Temple in Jerusalem, the animal sacrifice has ceased until the next Temple is built.  That today without the animal sacrifice, our Atonement is in The Messiah Yeshua, Jesus Christ.

And Atonement must be followed by living your life according to Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible, or there is no Atonement.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, and see 1 JOHN 5.3

And GOD said to Ezekiel, Therefore as I live saith The LORD GOD, surely because you, Israel, have defiled My Sanctuary with your idols, and have sacrificed to your idols, and worshipped idols with all your detestable things, and with all your abominations, therefore I will also decrease you, neither shall My Eye spare you, neither will I have pity on you.

I tell you, it is never good to upset GOD by disobeying Him.

I read the other day in a very famous reading where Yeshua, Jesus Christ, says, For everyone who does evil hates The Light, neither comes to The Light lest his deeds, that is his works, shall be corrected.

Hating The Light is hating The Truth.  The Truth is The Word that GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes The Law of Moses.  Evil is sin.  Sin is violating Torah, The Law of Moses, or any Word GOD Speaks in The Bible.

And Messiah said, But he that does The Truth comes to The Light that his deeds, that is his works shall be revealed, that they are The Works of GOD.

JOHN 3.20-21, 1 JOHN 3.4

The Works of GOD for you and me are Obedience to The Spoken Word of GOD.

ISAIAH 54.17

And GOD said to Ezekiel, A third part of The Children of Israel shall die with the pestilence, think coronavirus, and with famine will they be consumed in the midst of you.  And a third shall fall by the sword round about you.  And I will scatter a third part into the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.

Thus shall My anger be accomplished, and I will cause My fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted, and they shall know that I The LORD have Spoken it in My zeal which I have accomplished My fury in them.

Listen to GOD Speaking To the world, to Jewish People and Gentiles alike.

DEUTERONOMY 32.1-2

Give ear O heavens and I will speak.  And hear O earth The Words of My Mouth.

HEAR IN HEBREW IS SHEMA MEANING HEAR AND OBEY.

My Doctrine, GOD says, shall drop as the rain.  My Speech shall flow as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass,

EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, THE WORDS THAT YOU AND I READ IN THE BIBLE ARE FOR THE HEAVENS, FOR THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN, AND YES, FOR GOD HIMSELF IN HEAVEN, AND FOR THE EARTH WHERE ALL HUMANITY LIVES. 

To every human being, GOD says, Hear and Obey Every Word I Speak in The Bible.

Back to Ezekiel.  And GOD said, I will make you, The Children of Israel, waste and a disgrace among the nations that are round about you, in the sight of all that pass by.

So it shall be a disgrace and a put down.  listen to this, an instruction and astonishment to the nations (nations in Hebrew is Goyim, meaning Gentiles) that are round about you when I shall execute judgments in you in anger, and in fury and in furious rebukes.  I The LORD have Spoken it.

When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine which shall be for their destruction, which I shall send to destroy them.  And I will increase the famine upon them, and I will break their staff of bread.  Meaning, there will be a severe famine.

So will I send upon them famine and evil beasts, and they shall deprive them, and make them desolate by death, and pestilence, and blood shall pass through them, and I will bring the sword upon them.  I The LORD have Spoken it.

GOD IS SAYING THIS: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD IS AN INSTUCTION, A WARNING TO THE NATIONS, TO THE GENTILES, BECAUSE YOU DISOBEY GOD.

Are The Bible teachers listening to GOD?  Are The Bible teachers listening to every Word GOD speaks throughout The Bible?  Are The Bible teachers teaching The Truth of GOD???  To obey every Word GOD speaks in The Bible including The Law of Moses???

READ DEUTERONOMY 28, ALL 68 VERSES FOR YOUR GOOD BECAUSE THEY APPLY TO JEWS AND GENTILES ALIKE.

YOU SHOULD NEVER FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE IN THE BIBLE.

Shalom,

Our teaching will come from Ezekiel 4.1-17.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, YOU SHOULD NEVER FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE IN THE BIBLE.

And with that said, let’s read Ezekiel 4.1-17.

In 586 B.C.E./B.C., The GOD of Israel sent The Children of Israel into captivity in Babylon for seventy years because they Disobeyed The LORD Their GOD.

The Children of Israel, who are The Jewish People, continuously Disobeyed The Laws and Commandments of GOD Written in Torah, The Law of Moses, and they Disobeyed The Prophets and Messengers of GOD whom The LORD sent to them.  For all The Priests and The People sinned greatly against GOD doing the abominations of the heathen.  And they polluted The Temple, The House of GOD which The LORD made Holy in Jerusalem.

And The People mocked The Prophets and GOD’S Messengers, and they despised GOD’S Words, and misused His Prophets until the wrath of The LORD burned against His People till there was no remedy.

That is the example you should not follow.  You should not Disobey GOD.  You should not Disobey anything GOD says in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation.  You should not Disobey Torah, The Law of Moses written from Genesis through Deuteronomy.  You should not Disobey The Prophets of GOD.  And you should not Disobey The Spoken Word of GOD.  Because if you live a life of Disobedience to GOD, curses and troubles will surely follow you and overtake you all the days of your life.

But rather you should turn to GOD and Repent by having atonement in The Messiah Yeshua, and turn from all your sins of violating The Law of Moses, to living your life according to Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes The Law of Moses, doing that which is Lawful and Right.  And GOD says, You shall surely live, you will not die.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, EZEKIEL 18.21, 1 JOHN 3.4

Let’s summarize Ezekiel 4.1-17.

The time of Ezekiel Chapter 4 is during the seventy year captivity of The Jewish People in Babylon, current-day Iraq.

GOD told The Prophet Ezekiel, Take a tile, and lay it before you, and engrave on it The City of Jerusalem.  And lay siege to it, and build a fort against it, and heap a mound of earth around it.  Set an army also against it, and set battering rams against Jerusalem.

Also take an iron pan and set it for a wall of iron between you and the city, and set your face against it.  And it shall be besieged, and you shall lay siege against it.  This shall be a sign to The House of Israel.

The sign to The House of Israel is the city of Jerusalem being besieged by the Babylonian armies, and mounds of earth being heaped around Jerusalem.  All because of Jewish sins against GOD.  That is a sign of proof that The Children of Israel Disobeyed The LORD Their GOD for years, rejecting the daily warnings of GOD’S Prophets warning them of all their transgressions of the heathen, and polluting The Holy Temple of The LORD with their idols.

2 CHRONICLES 36.11-21

Let’s look at ISAIAH 4.2-3.  In that day shall The Branch of The LORD be Beautiful and Glorious.  (The Branch of The LORD is The Jewish Messiah Yeshua).  And the fruit of The Land of Israel shall be Excellent and Beautiful with Honor and Majesty for them who are Delivered, The Remnant of Israel.

And it shall come to pass that they that are left in Zion, and they that remain in Jerusalem shall be called Holy, every one who is written among the living in Jerusalem.

ZECHARIAH 6.12-13, JEREMIAH 23.5-6

The Branch of The LORD is Messiah Yeshua.

And GOD is telling The Jewish People, and all the world, Get your act together, and get yourself far away from sin.  Sin is violating Torah, The Law of Moses.  And start obeying Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation, and have atonement in The Messiah Yeshua, if you want to be delivered and be part of the remnant in Jerusalem with THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY when He returns to Israel, having Salvation and Eternal Life with The LORD Your GOD.

LET’S LOOK AT DEUTEORNOMY 30.1-5

WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA, RETURNS FROM HEAVEN TO JERUSALEM, THOSE WHO HAVE OBEYED GOD’S VOICE, EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU HAVE ATONEMENT IN HIM, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL GATHER YOU FROM ALL THE PEOPLES WHERE HE SCATTERED YOU, AND BRING YOU INTO HIS KINGDOM, THE LAND OF ISRAEL, AND YOU WILL HAVE SALVATION, ETERNAL LIFE WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, MESSIAH YESHUA, HA SHEM.

Some Bibles do not explain The Return of The LORD very well in Deuteronomy 30 verse 3.  Here is the Hebrew and the English.

V’shav Yehovah Eh’lo’hay’kha et sheh’vu’t’kha v’ree’kha’mey’kha v’shav v’kee’b’ste’kha me’kahl ha’ah’meem ah’sher heh’fee’st’kha Yehovah Eh’lo’hay’kha shah’mar.

v’shav  v’kee’b’ste’kha  is, And Return and gather you

Then The LORD Your GOD will turn your captivity and have compassion upon you, and will return and gather you from all the peoples where The LORD Your GOD has scattered you there.

The LORD Your GOD is Messiah Yeshua.

Not only is Deuteronomy 30.3 breathtaking because it was written 3,400 years ago, and some 1,400 years before Messiah,

but also this verse clearly shows that MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY and not some other god, the second person of the godhead of the false trinity of one god being three different gods.

Back to Ezekiel.  And GOD said to Ezekiel, Lie on your left side, and lay the iniquity of The House of Israel upon it.  According to the number of days that you lie on your side, you shall bear their iniquity.

NUMBERS 18.1  GOD holds The Priests responsible for the sins of The Children of Israel.  Ezekiel was a Priest and a Prophet.

EZEKIEL 1.3

GOD Commanding Ezekiel to lay on his side for such a very long time was payment for his responsibility of The People sinning against GOD.

And GOD said to Ezekiel, For I have laid upon you the years of their iniquity according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days.  So shall you bear their iniquity.

Thus The Children of Israel were in sin for three hundred and ninety years, a year for a day, before GOD sent Israel into exile for their sins.

1 JOHN 3.4

GOD has long patience.

And GOD said to Ezekiel, when you have accomplished the three hundred and ninety days of lying on your left side, lie again on your right side, and you shall bear the iniquity of The House of Judah forty days.  I have appointed each day for a year, GOD said.

So now we see that Israel was in sin another forty years, or a total of four hundred and thirty years.  Four hundred and thirty years of Disobeying GOD.

Israel’s punishment was seventy years in Babylonian captivity and exile.  Ezekiel’s punishment as a Priest who is held responsible for Israel’s sins was four hundred and thirty days lying on his side, because The Priests taught Israel Torah, to obey Torah.  But The People still Disobeyed GOD

AND THAT IS THE EXAMPLE NOT TO FOLLOW,  DISOBEDIENCE TO THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

So GOD said to Ezekiel, You shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and your arm shall be uncovered, and you shall Prophesy against Jerusalem, and The People who live in the city of Jerusalem.

I believe that GOD telling Ezekiel that his arm should be uncovered is Prophetic, because Messiah Yeshua, Who is GOD ALMIGHTY, is The Arm of The LORD.  When Messiah Yeshua came to Israel 2,000 years ago, He was The Arm of The LORD, Speaking The Words of The LORD to His Jewish People, and all the world from The Bible, because Messiah is The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER.

And because The Prophet Ezekiel Spoke The Words of GOD to The People, Ezekiel was The Arm of The LORD.

ISAIAH 52.10

And GOD said to Ezekiel, I will tie you up with ropes.  And The People bound The Prophet with ropes.  And GOD said, You shall not turn from one side to the other till you have ended the days of your siege.

And GOD said, Take some barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, I don’t know what millet is, and fitches that might be rye, and put them in one vessel and make bread of them according to the number of days that you shall lie on your side, three hundred and ninety days shall you eat that food.

And the food you shall eat every day shall weigh twenty shekels, or about one half pound.  From time to time you shall eat it.

You shall also drink water by measure, the sixth part of a hin, or about one quart, from time to time shall you drink.

And you shall eat it as barley cakes, and you shall bake it with dung that comes out of a man in their sight.

This is big time suffering for The Prophet Ezekiel.  I believe this also translates into the suffering of The Jewish People in Babylon for their sins against The Holy One of Israel, The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

Because The LORD said, Even in this way shall The Children of Israel eat their bread defiled among the Gentiles where I drive them.

The anti-Semitism of yesterday and today is because of Jewish sin against The LORD Their GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 28.15-68

Then Ezekiel said to The LORD, O LORD GOD, Behold, my soul has not been polluted, for from my youth up, even till now have I not eaten of that which dies of itself, or is torn in pieces, neither did any abominable meat come into my mouth.

Then GOD said to Ezekiel, Look, I have given you cow’s dung for man’s dung, and you shall prepare your bread with that.

And The LORD said to Ezekiel, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem that they shall eat bread by weight, and with care.  And they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment, a word meaning overwhelming astonishment and shock.  Meaning that GOD brought a famine upon Judah, the southern territory of Israel where the city of Jerusalem is for their Disobedience to GOD.

Again, the example you should not follow in The Bible is Disobedience to anything GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation.  Because Disobedience to GOD will bring upon you curses and trouble, evil, plagues, and diseases.

And GOD said, They shall want bread and water, and be astonished one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.

Life is long.  In fact there is no end to life.  When one dies on earth, you continue to live.  The one who is worthy of Eternal Life in Heaven obeyed GOD.  They Obeyed Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that includes Torah, The Law of Moses, and Blessed The Jewish People and Israel, and  have Atonement in Messiah Yeshua.  That person will spend Eternity in Heaven, in Perfection, and Beauty, in Peace, without tears, without death, or sorrow, or crying, or pain.  And all evil will have disappeared.

But the person who Disobeys GOD by Disobeying His Spoken Word in The Bible that includes Torah, The Law of Moses, and does not repent, and does not turn to GOD by turning away from all their sins of violating Torah, The Law of Moses, and Disobeying GOD’S Spoken Word throughout The Bible, and does not bless The Jewish People and Israel, and does not have Atonement in Messiah Yeshua, that person according to Scripture will spend eternity in hell.

LET’S LOOK AT LUKE 16.19-31

LUKE 16.29-31  Abraham said, They have Moses.  That is, They have Torah, The Law of Moses, and The Prophets.  Let them Hear and Obey them.

If they will not Hear and Obey Moses, That is, If they will not Hear and Obey Torah, The Law of Moses, and The Prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead.  They too will end up in hell.

SO, THE EXAMPLE IN THE BIBLE YOU SHOULD NOT FOLLOW IS DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE.  THAT RESULTS IN ETERNAL LIFE IN HELL.  UNLESS YOU ARE A GENTILE AND BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  THAT WILL GET YOU TO HEAVEN. 

GENESIS 12.3

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, DEUTERONOMY 28, ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 26.28, LUKE 4.4, ROMANS 5.11
