Sinful and Self-satisfied (20:33-49)

The leaders of Israel in Ezekiel’s day had treated God wickedly. But they felt no shame nor remorse. Yet the Lord promised that one day his people would loathe themselves for their sins. That takes a new heart, a new birth!


Forgetting the Flood (3:5-7)

The false teachers were happy to quote Genesis but conveniently overlooked the story of the Flood. Why? Because they preferred not to believe in a God of justice and wrath.


Learning from History (20:1-32)

Ezekiel took the elders of Israel through the history of the nation. What was the chief lesson they could learn? That they had never learned from history!


A Cry from the Darkness (10:46-52)

In looking at this miracle of the giving of sight to blind Bartimaeus we learn about the state of the non-Christian and what they need to do and also how Christians need to approach God in prayer. Bartimaeus shows us the way because he knew he was blind and poor and needed mercy from Christ and this was his opportunity to ask for it.


Taking God for granted (20:1-7)

The elders of Israel took it for granted that they had the right to ask God questions and that he would answer. But God had already said everything he wanted to say to them – and they hadn’t listened.
