Yesterday in chapters 8-9 we heard the story of Ezekiel’s being transported to Jerusalem and his awesome vision of our glorious God revealing the idolatry of Israel happening right at the temple. Some of the locations shown are literal, and some are to be taken figuratively. One clearly sees that God has every right to be highly offended. Note that the people sharing God’s grief at this idolatrous situation received a mark on their foreheads.
SONG OF SOLOMON 6:
Yesterday in chapter 5, we heard the young woman relating her dream.
Yesterday we heard Jesus’ direct and clear teaching about the final judgment. This was no parable. And note the words, “eternal punishment.”
Mat. 26:14 Then one of the twelve disciples— [Judas, the one from the village of Karioth//the one named Judas Iscariot] —went to the chief priests
24 [I,] The Son of Man will die as the Scriptures say [I//he] will, but how terrible for that man who will betray [me//the Son of Man]! It would have been better for that man if he had never been born!”
