"A word from Ezekiel"


 
I was reading this Scripture from Ezekiel 12 the other day and felt that it is a word from the Lord to the people of the world and worldly Christians and is applicable to this time that we are living in right now. I have changed the word "Israel" to "the people of the world":

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, what is this proverb you have amongst the people of the world: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’?

Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in among the people of the world.’

Say to them, ‘The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.  For there will be no more false visions or flattering divinations among the people of the world.  But I the LORD will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days, you rebellious people, I will fulfill whatever I say, declares the Sovereign LORD.’”

 The word of the LORD came to me:  “Son of man, the people of the world are saying, ‘The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.’

 “Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign LORD.’”
