Ezekiel 12-15 (The Daily Walk Bible).
Does the comment in 12:27 remind you of anything (“His visions won’t come true for a long, long time”)?
2 Peter 3:4 “They will say, ‘Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.’”
We remember and rejoice with 2 Peter 3:8-9! “But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”
Ezekiel warns the people about the false prophets in their midst. We see false prophets in our day as well, and sometimes wonder how they continue to get away with it. Jesus reminds us that false teachers will face a final judgment even if they flourish here on the earth: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness’” (Matthew 7:21-23).
