“Whether They Listen or Not”
Like all of the others who served as God’s faithful prophets, Ezekiel was called and ordained to speak the truth to a rebellious people – those who, again and again, broke the sacred covenant the Lord had lovingly established with the children of Israel. As was the case with the other prophets, many will not hear or heed what he has to say. And to this fact, the Almighty tells Ezekiel, “Whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that a prophet has been among them.” Ezekiel 2:5
The truth is, God’s Word stands. His holy will most assuredly will be carried out regardless of the acceptance of the same. We pray that by the Holy Spirit we may joyfully receive His Word and the messenger who proclaims it to us. It is God’s message of love to all of us in Christ Jesus!
