God’s Warning and Promise
“None of My words will be postponed any more, but the word which I speak will be done, says the Lord God” (Ezekiel 12:28).
Ezekiel heard God say, “Son of man, eat your bread with quaking, and drink your water with trembling and anxiety. And say to the people of the land, ‘Thus says the Lord God to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the land Israel: “They shall eat their bread with anxiety, and drink their water with dread, so that her land may be emptied of all who dwell in it. Then the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall become desolate; and you shall know that I am the LORD.” ’ ”
God’s judgment will not be postponed. He is already casting His judgment upon our land. Do you see how we have been and are still ignoring God? How we have not kept His laws? Do you see how we have despised His intervention in our lives, our schools, and our government? We are surely due our judgment. As a nation and as a people we are even already receiving God’s final judgment. All we need do is observe the events we see happening now in our land and in this world. God (is) serving up His judgment just as He has said He will!
But God has also said, “if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
