Fri 100212 am Ez 12-13

Ezekiel 12
12.2, 3  rebellious...  Note how a rebellious heart keeps us from really seeing, hearing, and understanding.
12.22 The days grow long, and the vision comes to nothing...  Reminds me of 2 Peter 3.3-5
12.7  I did as I was commanded...  Now that's a simple, but hard, concept to follow through on.
12.15, 20  they shall know that I am the LORD...  This a repeated theme in these chapters.  It reminds me of Pharaoh's question, "Who is the Lord."
Ezekiel 13
13.2  who prophesy from their own hearts...  
13.3  who follow their own spirit...
13.6  they expect Him to fulfill their word...
These form careful cautions for preachers today, and not just the prosperity preachers, but especially those who intend to faithfully exposit the Word of God.
13.22  This is something that preachers should be careful of--mainly the first part.  To not beat on those who are a tender reed and not give false comfort to those the Lord is trying to deal with.
