The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters
Chapter: Drawing World’s Together (Pages 329-332)
Ezekiel 21:1-3 “And the word of the Lord came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face toward Jerusalem, and speak against the sanctuaries, and prophesy against the land of Israel; and say to the land of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord, “Behold, I am against you; and I shall draw My sword out of its sheath and cut off from you the righteous and the wicked.”
Ezekiel 21:7 “And it will come about when they say to you, ‘Why do you groan?’ that you will say, ‘Because of the news that is coming; and every heart will melt, all hands will be feeble, every spirit will faint, and all knees will be weak as water. Behold, it comes and it will happen,’ declares the Lord God.”
Ezekiel 21:10 “…Sharpened to make a slaughter, polished to flash like lightning!’ Or shall we rejoice, the rod of My son despising every tree?”
Ezekiel 21:13 “For there is a testing; and what even if the rod which despises will be no more? declares the Lord God.”
Ezekiel 21:15 “…that their hearts may melt, and many fall at all their gates. I have given the glittering sword. Ah! It is made for striking like lightning, it is wrapped up in readiness for slaughter.”
Ezekiel 21:21 “For the king of Babylon stands at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination; he shakes the arrows, he consults the household idols, he looks at the liver.”
Ezekiel 21:25-27 “And you, O slain, wicked one, the prince of Israel, whose day has come, in the time of the punishment of the end,’ thus says the Lord God, ‘Remove the turban, and take off the crown; this will be no more the same. Exalt that which is low, and abase that which is high. A ruin, a ruin, a ruin, I shall make it. This also will be no more, until He comes whose right it is; and I shall give it to Him.”
Ezekiel 21:29 “…while they see for you false visions while they divine lies for you–to take you on the necks of the wicked who are slain, whose day has come, in the time of the punishment of the end.”
Ezekiel 22:13 “Behold, then, I smite My hand at your dishonest gain which you have acquired and at the bloodshed which is among you.”
Ezekiel 22:15 “And I shall scatter you among the nations, and I shall disperse you through the lands, and I shall consume your uncleanness from you.”
Ezekiel 22:21 “And I shall gather you and blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and you will be melted in the midst of it.”
Ezekiel 22:26-27 “Her priests have done violence to My law and have profaned My Holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from My Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. Her princes within her are like wolves tearing the prey, by shedding blood and destroying lives in order to get dishonest gain.”
Ezekiel 22:31 “Thus I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; their way I have
brought upon their heads, declares the Lord God.”
Scripture entitles us of what is to come in absolute unjust rebellion to God’s command. By recalling past events in the Bible we are able to gain a better understanding of the mind of God. God protects those who honor His Word. But for those who have not made the distinction between unclean and clean, your fate lies in the hands of the evil one. By careful analysis of historical facts we are able to discern between right and wrong. God does not lie, and never breaks a promise. God smiles at those who question His authority. There is no fear in God. There is no enemy that is too great for God. For all things were created by Him and for Him.
Ezekiel allows us to recognize the reality of the state in which are currently living. The Word of God discerns all things. It connects the dots for us between different worlds and different religions. The Word is what brings to attention the light that is to be discovered in the process of drawing worlds together, in particular Islam and Christianity.
Isaiah 48:10-11 “Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For My own sake, for My own sake, I will act; For how can My name be profaned? And My Glory I will not give to another.”
Isaiah 45:8 “Drip down, O Heavens from above, and let the clouds pour down righteousness; Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, and righteousness spring up with it. I, the Lord, have created it.”
Isaiah 45:20-25 “Gather yourselves and come; Draw near together, you fugitives of the nations; They have no knowledge about their wooden idol, and pray to a god who cannot save. Declare and set forth your case; Indeed, let them consult together. Who has announced this from old? Who has long since declared it? Is it not I, the Lord? And there is no other God besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; There is none except Me. Turn to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself, the word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness and will not turn back, that to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance. They will say of Me, ‘Only in the Lord are righteousness and strength.’ Men will come to Him, and all who were angry at Him shall be put to shame. In the Lord all the offspring of Israel will be justified, and will glory.”
For all the world this will be the avenue to Hope…There is no other avenue to eternal salvation. God does not stand for deception. Do not be deceived but trust in God.
Now that we are seeing a catastrophic change in our country and
economy where do we begin to look for hope and success? The avenue for venture enterprise and Eternal success rests in the hands of God.
This is how we may begin to understand God’s eternal plan, since from the beginning of the world and all creation.
Does wearing a wooden cross entitle one to the kingdom of heaven? It is a start. What God desires is that we understand the meaning of the cross and the crucifixion. It takes a deep mind to grasp it all…Deep minds are established through God’s Holy Spirit. No other god may open the doors that God the Father and Creator of all may unlock. You see, God may unlock or open the “capstone” (Divine Seal) and allow for all to know His brilliant design. God was the Creator. He created the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is Jesus Christ.
The way that the mind of God works is by testing the heart of people. There is nothing that cannot be achieved with the help of God. True success is knowing God.
God’s ultimate desires is to Celebrate the Tree of Life, as opposed the death of the Son of God. The death of Christ is very critical to gaining understanding, but the Resurrection is what saves us in the End…
For Jesus is Alive and not dead…
