Text: Ezekiel 27:1-36 In this chapter of lamentation (sorrow), God is grieving over the destruction of Tyre, which was a just judgment against their wickedness. But, God takes no pleasure in the destruction of wicked persons. God would rather have a wicked person repent and live (Ezek.18:23; Lk.15:7, 10). Everything is God’s creation, including Tyre,[…]

Text: Ezekiel 22:1-31 “In you they take bribes to shed blood; you take interest and profit and make gain of your neighbors by extortion; but me you have forgotten, declares the Lord GOD” (verse 12, ESV).

Text: Ezekiel 21:1-32 “So the sword is given to be polished, that it may be grasped in the hand. It is sharpened and polished to be given into the hand of the slayer” (verse 11, ESV). If you have not yet had the opportunity, I would encourage you to speak to someone who has experienced[…]
