Ezekiel 6

I will at least be posting two blogs today, because I haven’t been posting my Ezekiel blogs lately. I want to catch up on them and doing that, I have to at least post two blogs for two days. Like I said in yesterday’s blog, I have a lot going on, so I haven’t been able to post them like usual. I hope you understand.

Ezekiel 6 New International Version (NIV)

Doom for the Mountains of Israel

The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your faceagainst the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them and say: ‘You mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Sovereign Lord. This is what the Sovereign Lord says to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys: I am about to bring a sword against you, and I will destroy your high places. Your altars will be demolished and your incense altars will be smashed; and I will slay your people in front of your idols. I will lay the dead bodies of the Israelites in front of their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars. Wherever you live, the towns will be laid waste and the high places demolished, so that your altars will be laid waste and devastated, your idols smashed and ruined, your incense altars broken down, and what you have made wiped out. Your people will fall slain among you, and you will know that I am the Lord.

“‘But I will spare some, for some of you will escape the sword when you are scattered among the lands and nations. Then in the nations where they have been carried captive, those who escape will rememberme—how I have been grieved by their adulterous hearts, which have turned away from me, and by their eyes, which have lusted after their idols. They will loathe themselves for the evil they have done and for all their detestable practices. 10 And they will know that I am the Lord; I did not threaten in vain to bring this calamity on them.

11 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Strike your hands together and stamp your feet and cry out “Alas!” because of all the wicked and detestable practices of the people of Israel, for they will fall by the sword, famine and plague. 12 One who is far away will die of the plague, and one who is near will fall by the sword, and anyone who survives and is spared will die of famine. So will I pour out my wrath on them. 13 And they will know that I am the Lord, when their people lie slain among their idols around their altars, on every high hill and on all the mountaintops, under every spreading tree and every leafy oak—places where they offered fragrant incense to all their idols. 14 And I will stretch out my hand against them and make the land a desolate waste from the desert to Diblaha]”>[a]—wherever they live. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’”

Questions:

  1. Do you think WWII seems like another time the Lord was punishing Israel’s unfaithfulness and trying to get them to repent and turn back?

Tell me your thoughts in the comments down below. I also have a birthday party I’m going to tonight, so I will tell you all about it soon. I will tell you the basics. It is at Puzzle Plex, we are doing the room, Dr.Ian’s Office, which is funny, because we have a friend named Ian. He’ll get a crack out of that one. Also, one of my friend’s did some information, and the percentage of people to escape that room is 40%. That means it will be a little harder, but it will be fun!

And as always, I’ll be blogging with you next time on, Christianforkids!

I am 12 years old, I live in the USA. I want more people to learn about God and except him as their savior and friend. I have brown hair and brown eyes. I like to sing, dance, and act. I like to program robots and love typing, writing, and drawing. I'm very creative. I like baking and cooking. I love doing crafts and sharing ideas. And the name says what most of my blogs will be about. You can contact me if you have any questions and I will try to answer them as best as I can. You can always tell others about me. I am pretty busy, so you will hear a lot about that during my time while blogging. I hope that you have an amazing day and I love you so much! I will be praying for you, so please pray for me. I get most of my material from biblegateway.com. I get questions from my homeschooling website, which is why I even have a blog. And just a reminder, life is good.
