Search The Scriptures -- Ezekiel


Study 22 – Ezekiel 33

  1. Repentance is the only hope that Israel has of escaping the judgment of the Lord.
    This repentance must be followed by obedience. A return to the old ways is unacceptable.

  2. In verse 10 Israel is wondering how they will survive and the Lord says that repentance will offer them victory. In verse 24 Israel is confident in their numbers and the Lord tells them to prepare for destruction due to their disobedient behavior.

  3. The prophet becomes bolder as his audience size increases and as the audience size increases the more curious the people become. The problem is that large crowds and curious onlookers do not always translate into repentance.
