In the seventh year, in the fifth month on the tenth day, some of the elders of Israel came to inquire of the Lord, and they sat down in front of me.
2Then the word of the Lord came to me: 3“Son of man, speak to the elders of Israel and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Have you come to inquire of me? As surely as I live, I will not let you inquire of me, declares the Sovereign Lord.’
  (Ezekiel 20:1-3, NIV)

Our focus verses for today:

 

In the seventh year, in the fifth month on the tenth day, some of the elders of Israel came to inquire of the Lord, and they sat down in front of me.
2Then the word of the Lord came to me: 3“Son of man, speak to the elders of Israel and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Have you come to inquire of me? As surely as I live, I will not let you inquire of me, declares the Sovereign Lord.’  
(Ezekiel 20:1-3, NIV)

 

Can rejection run any deeper than when someone refuses to communicate with you? The people of Judah had allowed themselves to become so ingrained in the false religions of their time that they no longer knew the true God, the God of Israel. Sin had so thoroughly consumed Judah that they no longer recognized sin. The result of not knowing sin and fleeing it, is hardening God’s heart toward those calloused by sin. God no longer heard them. God no longer recognized them. Judah has set a course of destruction.
