Your Personal Invitation to be Saved
and go to Heaven when your life on earth is over!!!
(1) God loves You!!
Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
(2) Your Sin (or Disobedience to God) has Separated You from God!!
Romans 5:12, Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all
men, for that all have sinned:
(3) Only Jesus-Christ
can Forgive Your Sins!!
Acts 4:12, Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
(4) Will You Receive Jesus-Christ as
Your Lord (or Authority) & Savior (or Rescuer)??
Mark 1:15, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
(Through Prayer) Sorrowfully tell God Your a Sinner, willing to turn from Your Sins and trust Jesus-Christ's shedding of Blood
and Death on the Cross for Full Payment of Your Sins and will Follow Him.
Welcome to Our Daily Devotional
Day we will READ a Chapter of the Bible
Look at the MEANING of that Chapter
make APPLICATION of this Chapter to my life
Today's Scripture: Ezekiel 4
1Thou also, son
of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and pourtray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:
2And lay siege against it,
and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against
it round about.
3Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city:
and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to
the house of Israel.
4Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according
to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity.
5For I have laid
upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear
the iniquity of the house of Israel.
6And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side,
and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.
thou shalt set thy face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and thine arm shall be uncovered, and thou shalt prophesy against
behold, I will lay bands upon thee, and thou shalt not turn thee from one side to another, till thou hast ended the
days of thy siege.
9Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches,
and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon
thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.
10And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be
by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.
11Thou shalt drink also water
by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.
12And thou shalt eat it as
barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.
13And the LORD said, Even
thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.
said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of
that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.
he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.
he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight,
and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
17That they may want bread and
water, and be astonied one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.
|Today's Scripture Meaning: |
The siege of Jerusalem. (1-8) The famine the inhabitants would suffer.
Verses 1-8: The prophet was to represent the siege of Jerusalem
by signs. He was to lie on his left side for a number of days, supposed to be equal to the years from the establishment
of idolatry. All that the prophet sets before the children of his people, about the destruction of Jerusalem, is to
show that sin is the provoking cause of the ruin of that once flourishing city.
9-17: The bread which was Ezekiel's support, was to be made of coarse grain and pulse mixed together,
seldom used except in times of urgent scarcity, and of this he was only to take a small quantity. Thus was figured
the extremity to which the Jews were to be reduced during the siege and captivity. Ezekiel does not plead, Lord, from
my youth I have been brought up delicately, and never used to any thing like this; but that he had been brought up
conscientiously, and never had eaten any thing forbidden by the law. It will be comfortable when we are brought to
suffer hardships, if our hearts can witness that we have always been careful to keep even from the appearance of evil.
See what woful work sin makes, and acknowledge the righteousness of God herein. Their plenty having been abused to luxury
and excess, they were justly punished by famine. When men serve not God with cheerfulness in the abundance of all
things, God will make them serve their enemies in the want of all things.
|Today's Scripture Application: |
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in
the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue the Book of Ezekiel with
Chapter 4. In our text today we see the Lord giving Ezekiel visions of sin and judgment. In making application we
see the Lord still communicates with us through the pages of the Bible. The Lord lovingly communicates with us through
the pages of the Bible. Our salvation, our relationships, our finances, and our lives have the Lords instruction
through the pages of the Bible. How about you? Do you listen to the Lord? Let us learn from out text today and example
of Ezekieal to see that the Lord loves us and communicates with us through His Word and His Spirit for salvation and every
area of our life.
