8 Yet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the countries. 9 And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations. 10 And they shall know that I am the LORD, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them.
11 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Smite with thine hand, and stamp with thy foot, and say, Alas for all the evil abominations of the house of Israel! for they shall fall by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence. 12 He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that remaineth and is besieged shall die by the famine: thus will I accomplish my fury upon them. 13 Then shall ye know that I am the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols. 14 So will I stretch out my hand upon them, and make the land desolate, yea, more desolate than the wilderness toward Diblath, in all their habitations: and they shall know that I am the LORD. (Ezekiel 6:8-14 KJV)
Ezekiel, born in 593 B.C.E., also told about the coming punishment that God would dole out for being sinful, disobeying His commandments. Even more so, through the ages the words from Ezekiel have proven true. Throughout history, when bad people ruled and that person’s mandate was well received and adhered to, bad things happened to punish us.
In verse twelve it is said there will be pestilence and the passage go on to say there will be famine. Think about it…if fields are not planted, what is there to pick to eat? Even if the fields are planted, there must be people to pick the crops, slaughter the meat, transport the food, store the food, people must work to have the money to buy the products, there must be open places to sell the products, etc.
Read the entire chapter six, it is short, and you will realize that everything mentioned is evident today. However, in verse thirteen, as well as throughout the chapter, worshiping their idols was a major catalyst for what was to happen. How many people idolize one man no matter what he says and does? This man has supporters that will do anything for him, even disobeying God. Don’t say they put God first because that would be a lie and you then have broken one of God’s commandments. He says he is the chosen one and thinks only of himself. He lies to his supporters and, even with his supporters knowing it is a lie, they believe everything he says.
As you see, Ezekiel is not the only person that wrote about the situation we are now in, why we are in it, and the outcome. How many times must we be warned? Even though we are having a worldwide pandemic, many young people are showing a disregard for their life and the lives of others. The young people have been warned and yet they go on as if nothing will harm them or this situation is not happening. It was written by Ezekiel and others. Read the Bible and pray.
