In the Book of 2 Chronicles there is a recurring theme. Some of the Kings “did what was right in the eyes of the Lord”. Other Kings “did evil in the eyes of the Lord”.
In the Book of Ezekiel, there is another recurring theme. GOD speaks over and over, “Then they will know that I am the Lord”.
Ezekiel 17: 22-24 (NIV) This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will take a shoot from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its top most shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain. 23 On the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches. 24 All the trees of the field will know that I the Lord bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish.
“‘I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’”
JESUS COMING WAS FORETOLD BY OUR SOVEREIGN LORD
WHEN GOD SPEAKS – HE DELIVERS
