OCTOBER 29 READING…EZEKIEL 8-10 & GALATIANS 3
What is done in darkness is also seen by God. Religious standing or clothing will not shield a person from the sight of God. God showed Ezekiel the terrible and ungodly things that were happening inside the Temple. These things were being done by the religious leaders who were supposed to be set aside to God, and leading the people to God. They were worshiping false gods, and doing all kinds of ungodly acts. The corruption of the religious community by ungodly leaders is a sign of a nation that is getting ready to fall. Our churches, denominations, and religious groups have a plethora of ungodly leaders who have no heart for the Lord, and they are leading God’s people away from Him. One of the saddest thoughts is that the Spirit of God would leave us. In Ezekiel 10 the prophet is allowed to see the Spirit of God leave the Temple and the city of Jerusalem. What a horrid thought, that a religious group would not have the Spirit of God to lead it. Well, look around, there is very few churches that are led by the Holy Spirit…they are being led by a man, his committees, or by a family or group of people who think they run the church. We live in a time when you have to look very carefully to find a church where the Holy Spirit is in charge. In Galatians, Paul talks about the Holy Spirit being given to us as we respond to God in faith. Faith is the only way we can come to God. When we come to Him any other way we grieve the Spirit, and we begin to walk in the flesh. All things that we have from God are the result of faith…and it has always been that way, it will always be that way.
Please share your thoughts.
