Ezekiel 18-19

Ezekiel 18:
The parents eat sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’

Ezekiel addresses this proverb with a generational example that is AMAZING! Honestly, I don’t think you need me on this one.  I had actually written a very long post this morning but deleted it.  But can I share my favorite part:

21 “But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die. 22 None of the offenses they have committed will be remembered against them. Because of the righteous things they have done, they will live. 23 Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?

It’s called the Amazing Grace for Szymanski.

Ezekiel 19- Ummmm did Baruch’s pen run out of ink on this one?  I was left with….well what about the restoration??  This was an analogy played off the prior reading.  One commentary I read on it called it “How the Mighty have Fallen!”.

Keeping it short…not sure anyone is reading Ezekiel. 🤷‍♀️

  1. Oh my, that was my feeling too. Amazing Grace. I’m kinda glad 19 ended with This is a lament and to be used as a lament. Not quite sure how else that could be used. I even went back and scanned the text thinking did I miss something.

  2. This is my first read through.(and I’m 65) I’m shocked I’m still reading or listening daily. For sure Divine intervention. Some days I shake my head and say what did I just read or hear. Other days I’m totally wowed. But I keep on. I have learned so much, Things have come together and really helped me to understand. What a loving, just God we have! I’m reading Ezekiel too.
    Thank you for all you do for us. God bless you always.

  3. This is my first read through as well. I’m fact I don’t think I have ever read anything in Ezekiel before. Chapter 18 made so much sense it was the first chapter in this book that I understood. I agree Ch19….what did I read??
