Study points:

Monday

  • The book of Ezekiel shows us once again that, without a doubt, God warns and warns and warns again before judgment comes.
  • Hebrews 12: 1-2 (in part) – …Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of faith…
  • Hebrews 12 shows us that even today, God is chastening, correcting, and rebuking His people.
  • Hebrews 12:6 – For whom the Lord loves He chastens…
  • God is cleansing us so “That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” (Ephesians 5:7)
  • Hebrews 12:14 – Pursue peace with all, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord
  • Hebrews 12: 22-24 – But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn  registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,  to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than Abel.

 Tuesday

  • God does nothing without revealing it to His prophets.  (Amos 3:7)
  • Ezekiel 24:24 – Thus Ezekiel is a sign to you; according to all that he has done you shall do; and when this comes, you shall know that I am the Lord God.
  • Hebrews 13:2 – Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels
  • Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever

Wednesday

  • Ezekiel 28 gives us details into the fall of satan, the King of Tyre. Satan is always the “king” over princes in the world that do evil, especially against Israel.
  • The future of Israel is bright.
  • Ezekiel 28: 25-26 –  Thus says the Lord God: “When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob.  And they will dwell safely there, build houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they will dwell securely, when I execute judgments on all those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God.”
  • The future of the nations that were and are against Israel is dark.
  • Ezekiel 30:7-8 – They shall be desolate in the midst of the desolate countries, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are laid waste.  Then they will know that I am the Lord, When I have set a fire in Egypt and all her helpers are destroyed.
  • James 1: 2-4 – count it all joy when you fall into various trials,  knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
  • James 1: 13 –  Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.
  • James 1: 17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
  • James 1: 22 – But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
  • James 1: 26 – If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.

Thursday

  • James 2:13 – For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Friday

  • 2 Chronicles 36:21 – To fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years.
  • James 3: 2 – For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
  • James 3:10 – Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.
  • James 3:16 – For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
  • James 3:17-18 – 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
