The Gospel Message

RE Verse reading–Ezekiel 10:18-19, 11:22-23; 40:1-2; 43:1-9  (day four) 
At least two things permeate this passage…the glory of God and His promise of hope.  Ezekiel’s visions are of the indescribable majesty and glory of the Lord.  Israel’s disobedience has separated them from God’s glory.  It was Ezekiel’s job to deliver God’s message to His people.  If Israel would put away their harlotry and repent of their iniquities, God would dwell among them forever.  This was 25 years into their captivity of 70 years…it was the beginning of Passover.  Passover was a celebration of God’s deliverance of Israel from Egypt.  Here He was promising to do it again.  All Israel had to do was repent and turn from their disobedience and God would live among them forever.  Forgiveness from sin, eternal life…what a promise.  Don’t you wish we could have a promise like that?
