Standing with Poor Ezekiel

When I write these articles for, my goal is to point out the flaws in the picture – by showing you the truth. We all – myself included – have a flawed view of reality, and that false interpretation of what’s real cannot be shaken – unless someone applies the truth to our lives.

The One who did that first, was Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. He showed us who we really were, the ugliness of our sin, and loved us – in spite of that awful sin. He then went on to suffer an eternity’s worth of judgment for us.

It wasn’t an eternity for Him, but it would have been an eternity for us.

If we truly understood what Christ did for us, we would dedicate our lives to serving Him. Unfortunately, we can’t truly understand, because such love is beyond our comprehension.

I thank God that we will never know the price that Jesus paid. But, that doesn’t change the incredible debt of gratitude that we have towards Him. Dedicating our lives to serving Christ is the very least that we can do.

Feed His Sheep

After Jesus rose from the dead, the disciples went fishing in the Kinneret – or, what we also call the Sea of Galilee. And, it was there that Jesus appeared to them a third time. And, He said something very important to Peter, something that we should all take to heart:

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?

He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.

He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?

He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.

He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?

Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me?And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee.

Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

John 21:15-17

So, maybe I should ask you the same question:

Do you truly love Jesus?

Then feed His sheep.

Unfortunately, feeding the sheep of our Lord and Savior is often an unpleasant process. People do not appreciate having their carefully constructed paradigms shattered. They don’t like seeing their flaws in the mirror that you put up to them. They don’t like being shown that the world they know… isn’t real.

This Job Is YOURS

But, who else is going to show it to them?

Please understand that our brothers and sisters are being led by their pastors to be slaughtered. If they are going to escape… well …someone is going to need to tell them the truth.

That ‘someone’ is YOU.

Please. I hope that you got that.

You know the truth. You know what is going to happen to your brothers and sisters in Christ – if they don’t know the truth, also.

Are you telling them the truth?

Some of you have, and were rebuffed for your efforts. It’s a disheartening thing, and I know how you feel. And, we actually have an example of this in the Bible.

Poor Ezekiel

God told poor Ezekiel in chapter 33:

Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.

Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord.

And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.

Ezekiel 33:29-32

God was telling Ezekiel that the people wouldn’t listen to him.

When Ezekiel warned the people of the desolation that was coming upon them, it was just another campfire horror story. It was just another scary tale to delight their ears.

Yet, God told Ezekiel in the same chapter:

But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. – Ezekiel 33:6

What a difficult position for Ezekiel to be in, to be required to warn the people of impending destruction, and to know that they will not listen.

That’s why I refer to him as ‘poor Ezekiel’.

You don’t need to have all the truth to stand with ‘poor Ezekiel’. You just need to speak what you have.

Will You Stand With Poor Ezekiel?

Apocalypse is coming. You know that, and this means that you are burdened with the responsibility of doing the best that you can to convince others… that it is coming.

If you are worried that your best efforts won’t be enough, let me set your mind at ease. Your best efforts will never be enough. But, God doesn’t require from you more than your best. He is the one in control

The question is whether you are willing to get out there and fulfill this calling – to warn those who are being led to their destruction.

Are you willing to stand with poor Ezekiel?

If you aren’t, God will have a thing or two to say about that, when you stand before Him.
