Ezekiel Bible Background

11.22.2017 – Old Testament: Eze 28.24

To read the Bible in a year, read Ezekiel 27–28 on November 22, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Enemies surrounded the nation of Israel, and they served as thorns in the side of Israel, but the Lord assured His people,

“And there shall no longer be a pricking brier or a painful thorn for the house of Israel from among all who are around them, who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord GOD” (Ezekiel 28.24). 

Even as the Lord did for ancient Israel, so He will do for His people (Christians) today, troubling those who trouble us and giving us rest who are troubled (2 Thessalonians 1.7–9).

Questions:

  • Are you patient as you wait for the Lord to deal with problem people in your life?
  • Do you think the Lord knows what He is doing in your life?
