Ezekiel Lecture 15 – The List of Israel’s Sins

God reminds the “Prince” of Israel of his country’s many sins, and how he will not escape punishment. Ultimately the nation will be shown mercy though, despite its long history of sin. Ezekiel is ordered to perform several signs of Israel’s coming punishment, including being ordered not to mourn the death of his wife.

Ezekiel Lecture 14 – Reminder of God’s Mercy Toward Israel

Angry at the elders of Israel demanding prophecy, God reminds them of their continual inclination toward idolatry, even back in Egypt. He chastises them for distorting the Law of Moses to commit evil. For example some Israelites construed their firstborns belonging to God as an excuse to sacrifice and kill them out of convenience. We are warned that any ostensibly Christian activities that turn us away from God are not truly Christian activities.

God reminds Judah that Sodom was synonymous was evil in Israelite culture, but that Judah’s actions are worse because they should know better. They are a prosperous nation steeped in Scripture that is turning around and attacking those loyal to God.

Ezekiel Lecture 11 – Israel the Harlot

God tells Ezekiel to compare Israel to a child disposed of in a wasteland, who God takes in, raises, and marries before she turns around and becomes a harlot. Israel “plays the field” by worshipping other pagan gods and making child sacrifices.

Ezekiel Lecture 7 – Vision of the Idols

God shows Ezekiel a vision of pervasive idol worship among the Israelites, even among the highest echelons of power. Demand for false prophets is high at this time, though Ezekiel has gained notoriety and people are interested to hear what God tells him to say.

I apologize for the echo in this recording.
