Ezekiel: A Watchman on the Wall

June 3, 2018 Max Frazier Series: The Thread of Redemption

The prophet Ezekiel experienced some of the strangest moments any prophet ever had – moments that almost defy our imaginations.  His book begins with a vision of some type of “heavenly wheels” filled with eyes.  And accompanying those “heavenly wheels” were found amazing creatures which had four faces and four wings.  God commissions Ezekiel to be a watchman on the wall – a person who announces that the judgment form God is impending and for people to be ready when it comes.  Yet, God also uses Ezekiel to be the one who trumpets that the nation of Israel will be restored back to the lands promised them by God through His covenant with Abraham.  We know this as “the vision of the valley of the dry bones.”  We will close our study of Ezekiel by briefly looking at a battle known as “the Ezekiel 38 War.”  God gave unusual boldness to Ezekiel as he shared God’s truths with people.
