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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
