Ezekiel 28

Everyone watching will know that I am the LORD.

Then everyone will know that I am the LORD.

For then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.

Did they?

Do we?

God is glorified through the good and the bad at least according to the commentaries and I agree. We see God's power and might and His Word. Over and over they were warned, but did not believe. Continually He sent prophets to tell them what would happen and finally He showed them. He allowed the attack and destruction of Jerusalem. Imagine, His pain at this happening.

We are told that no longer would the neighbors prick and tear at her like briers and thorns. The original meaning for prick was to cause bitterness and thorns was wicked. So, the neighbors helped with the evil of bitterness and wickedness coming into Israel. One commentary mentioned the evil queen of Ahab bringing back the idol worship and the beginning of the end. A choice made to allow this to begin again by the people.

What choices are we making? Do you have any bitterness that is building in you that might cause evil to grow? Bitterness takes a hold in a short time and other things begin to happen. Ponder this thought for a moment and confess any bitterness ~ don't let it take a hold of you. I admit that I confessed some that was building in me and gave it to God.

Today, remember who God is and was!

Remember is love for each of us!

Remember is power!

Remember to Glorify Him in all you do today and everyday!

Remember obedience to His desires and not our own!

Remember to ~ know that He is the Sovereign LORD!

Sweet blessings,

Debbie, today throughout the reading I wrote several times, "prophecy is fulfilled."
I thought it must take prophecy being fulfilled for people to know that He is the Sovereign Lord? Does it take a flood, a famine or captivity for us to know that He is Lord? It must.

Christ fulfilled prophecy on the cross. Do we know that He is Lord?
