SHOCKING LANGUAGE intended to wake up the people of Judah kicks off our study of Ezekiel this week. Through the prophet, God compared the pagan practices of the nations to lewd behavior, and Ezekiel didn’t soften the language at all.
GOD’S REASONS for His judgment against the apostate kingdom of Judah is the focus of this week’s study. It reads like a list of charges against a defendant in a court case, a summary of the sins of the Israelites going all the way back to the Exodus.
Of course, it’s important to remember that God doesn’t grade sin on a curve. On the only report card that matters, without Jesus, we all fail.
