September 05, 2019: SOAP #3563:  Ezekiel 25-28; Revelation 10

Scripture:  Ezekiel (NIV) 25:2 “Son of man, set yourface against the Ammonites and prophesy against them. 6 For this iswhat the Sovereign LORD says: Because you have clapped your hands and stampedyour feet, rejoicing with all the malice of your heart against the land ofIsrael, 7  therefore I will stretch outmy hand against you and give you as plunder to the nations. I will cut you offfrom the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will destroy you,and you will know that I am the LORD.'”
8 “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Moab
12 “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Edom
15 “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because the Philistines

Observation:   The fournations mentioned in chapter 25 were all going to be judged because of theirmistreatment of Israel.  This is afulfillment of God's promise in Genesis 12:3. It is still God's promise toIsrael. 

It was through their mistreatment of Israel, and God's judgment on them thatthey would come to know that the God of Israel was the Lord God of the wholeearth!  Each of the judgments on each ofthese nations ends with 'Then they will know' that Israel's God is the LordGod of the Earth!     

Application:   Godwants to be known.  A time is coming whenHe will be acknowledged for Who He is!  Nowit is my responsibility and privilege to make Him known through my life tothose around me. 

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, flow through me.  Make Jesus known through me today, Ipray.  Amen
