The thirty-sixth chapter of Ezekiel is about God’s anger for Israel’s rebellion, and the promise of re-inhabiting Israel again. Today, God had truly blessed Israel and bring the Jews back from just a few thousand Jews living in Israel around 1600s to 6.1 million today. This is the LORD’s doing and we are witness to what He had done.
The thirty-fifth chapter of Ezekiel is about a prophecy against Edom or mount Seir. A prophecy of perpetual desolation of Edom because of ancient hatred and bloodshed.
The thirty-fourth chapter of Ezekiel is about shepherds of Israel and judgement on His flock. God Himself will shepherd His flock.
When Ezekiel is warning about God’s judgments, the people do hear his words but they do not ‘do’ them. Today, we have the same problem in Christianity. Have you ever heard of ‘we are saved by faith alone’ lie?
The book of Ezekiel is one of the major prophets in the Old Testament. It was authored by Ezekiel who was set as a watchman to the house of Israel. The thirty-second chapter of Ezekiel is about mourning for Pharoah and Egypt.
The thirty-first chapter of Ezekiel is about prophecy to Egypt. God is showing to Egypt how the pride of Assyria caused it’s destruction.
The thirtieth chapter of Ezekiel is about prophecies mentioning Egypt’s fall. The prophecies seem to refer the Battle of Pelusium in 525 BC and the invasion of Egypt by Nebuchadnezzar.
The twenty-ninth chapter of Ezekiel is about prophecy against Egypt. It shall be the lowliest of kingdoms; it shall never again exalt itself above the nations, for God will diminish them so that they will not rule over the nations anymore. No longer shall it be the confidence of the house of Israel, but will remind them of their iniquity when they turned to follow them.
God will judge any nation that is like a pricking thorn to Israel. In 1948, God gathered the house of Israel and the nation of Israel was formed. They will dwell in their own land, build houses, plant vineyards and dwell safely. While Israel dwell safely, God will execute Judgments on all around those who despise them. Whether it ancient Tyre by Alexander or the Invasion of Iraq in 2003 or Syrian civil-war in 2011, these judgments ruined them.
On the day when the Lord judges a nation, just like the unconquered, undefeated fortified island city of Tyre was brought to its knees, God will judge every nation for its iniquity.
