Today you should read: Ezekiel 13
Much of this book talks about God’s judgment. When we read about God’s judgment we know that we’re not talking about opinions but instead truth and facts. God doesn’t have opinions but speaks truth. God’s judgment is the righteous punishment or mercy to a people who have disobeyed God and His standards. And part of that judgment is toward God’s people as we’ve been reading about in Ezekiel.
In fact, the book of Ezekiel has the word “judge” or “judgment” more than any other book in the Bible, twenty times alone between chapters 4 and 24. In the judgment we ready about today it’s his judgment toward those who were false prophets. People who were supposed to be the voice of God spitting out lies and heresy disguised as truth. We want God to judge such people and we can trust that one of 4 things come out of such judgment.
- Divine Wrath (in which we see mostly in these chapters)
- Exiles from the Church
We can all hope and pray for accountability and mercy in God’s judgment, but must trust in God’s will over ours.
