DAY 188: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
As we journey through Ezekiel, God continues to announce His judgment on Judah.
Ask God for His understanding of Ezekiel 19-24. Read Ezekiel 19-24. Let’s journey!
Ezekiel was a priest who lived in Jerusalem during the time of the first Babylonian attack on the city. While the city was not destroyed, 10,000 were taken to Babylon, Ezekiel included. While in Babylon, Ezekiel warns of what is to come, knowing that no one will heed his warnings and, in chapter 33, Ezekiel receives word that Jerusalem has fallen to Babylon, and the temple is destroyed. The remainder of the book of Ezekiel offers a message of hope for the future.
Ezekiel 19-24: God continues to express His coming judgment on Judah through the prophet Ezekiel. The topic of our focus verses for today is God stopped considering the inquiries of Israel. (Ezekiel 19:1–24:27)
After concluding today’s reading, consider the following: Ezekiel was sent to warn about what was to come because Israel had broken the covenant they made with the Lord. How has Israel broken their covenant with the Lord? What judgement was to come? Who would deliver that judgement?
