Week Forty-Eight

 THE PROPHECY OF EZEKIEL 

  • Ezekiel was a priest who was taken captive to Babylon where he prophesied.
  • He was called upon to enact many prophecies. He was called a 'man of sign' and 'son of man', pointing forward to Christ.
  • A most exciting prophecy in chapter 37 relates to our days! It describes the revival of Israel, a modern miracle, and forecasts her coming King (verse 22). The land will, however, again be invaded from the North (chapter 38) but God will intervene.
