Ezekiel 18:29 Yet says the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel are not my ways equal? Are not your ways unequal?

Ezekiel 20:34-37 And I will bring you out from the people and will gather you out of the countries wherein you are scattered, with a mighty hand and with a stretched out arm and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people and there will I plead with you face to face. Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, says the Lord God. And I will cause you to pass under the rod and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.

Ezekiel 21:21 For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination. He made his.arrows.bright.
Apparently one arrow would signal a yes to his query and the other a no; he put them in a bag with his question in mind and reached in; whatever one he unknowingly picked out would be his answer), he consulted with.images.(images he would look at with his query in mind), he looked in the.liver.(a practice of burning the liver of an animal and looking at it after, similar to having tea leaves read).

Barnes New Testament Notes: "It was the practice both of the Greeks and the Romans {derived from the Etruscans} to take omens from the inspection of the entrails."

Ezekiel 21:25 And you, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end.
Eclectic Notes:."in the time of the iniquity of the end".as the original has it.
Ezekiel 21:27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is and I will give it him.
It's talking about the governments of the world until the time of the kingdom of the Creator, the building of which has been setting up first inside good hearted people.."Have faith, everything will be all right. What you can no longer do, I will do for you. I'm building a house over the world NOW! I turn everything around. The opposite is worth twice as much."....Bruno Gröning. Revelation 21:5.
Ezekiel 22:1,2 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Now, you son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? yea, you show her all her abominations. 

Ezekiel 22:3 Then say you, Thus saith the Lord God, The city sheds blood in the midst of it, that her time may come and makes idols against herself to defile herself. 

Ezekiel 22:4 You are become guilty in your blood that you have shed and have defiled yourself in your idols which you made and you have caused your days to draw near and are come even unto your years.(falsities only allow one to exist without hope and that ages an individual). Therefore have I made you a reproach unto the heathen and a mocking to all countries.
How does this happen? When one is out of alignment with good, with God, with love (good, God, love, all are the same thing:.1John 4:8-16) and with the invisible but real workings of principles laid down (such as ...) which allow the universe and all in it to function as it must, this is what the verse is saying:.Proverbs 8:33-36.

Ezekiel 22:5 Those that be near and those that be far from you shall mock you, which are infamous and much vexed.

Those who at one time liked and respected you, now mock you, wanting no more to do with you, because of how you have been in sliding into ways of evil which have affected them as well; in other words, they did not want God in their lives and as such, afflicted others:.Jeremiah 44:16,17.
Ezekiel 22:6-8 Behold, the princes of Israel, every one were in you to their power to shed blood.(they aligned with you because they were of the same mind). In you have they set light by father and mother and in the midst of you have they dealt by oppression with the stranger. In you have they vexed the fatherless and the widow. You have despised mine holy things and have profaned my sabbaths.

Ezekiel 22:9 In you are men that carry tales to shed blood and in you they eat upon the mountains. In the midst of you they commit lewdness.

Ezekiel 22:10,11 In you have they discovered their fathers' nakedness. In you have they humbled her that was set apart for pollution. And one has committed abomination with his neighbour's wife and another has lewdly defiled his daughter in law and another in you has humbled his sister, his father's daughter.
Corruption leads to more corruption.
Ezekiel 22:12 In you have they taken gifts to shed blood. You have taken usury and increase and you have greedily gained of your neighbours by extortion.(original is 'oppression'; policies which oppress people).and have forgotten me, says the Lord God.
Closer to the original.
Ezekiel 22:13,14 Behold, therefore I have smitten mine hand at your dishonest gain which you have made and at your blood which has been in the midst of you. Can your heart endure or can your hands be strong in the days that I shall deal with you? I the Lord have spoken it and will do it.

Ezekiel 22:15-23 And I will scatter you among the heathen and disperse you in the countries and will consume your filthiness out of you.(that's why some people need trials and afflictions). And you shall take your inheritance.(what you deserve for how you lived).in yourself in the sight of the heathen and you shall know that I am the Lord. And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross. All they are brass and tin and iron and lead in the midst of the furnace. They are even the dross of silver. Therefore thus says the Lord God; Because you are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. As they gather silver and brass and iron and lead and tin into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it. So will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury and I will leave you there and melt you. Yea, I will gather you and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath and you shall be melted in the midst thereof. As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall you be melted in the midst thereof and you shall know that I the Lord have poured out my fury upon you.(Job 20:27-29). And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 22:24-26 Son of man, say unto her, You are the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey, they have devoured souls, they have taken the treasure and precious things, they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated my law and have profaned mine holy things. They have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they showed difference between the unclean and the clean and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths.(at this time they were extant).and I am profaned among them.

Ezekiel 22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey to shed blood and to destroy souls to get dishonest gain.
Luke 11:39.
Ezekiel 22:28-30 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered mortar, seeing vanity and divining lies.unto them, saying, This says the Lord God, when the Lord has not spoken. The people of the land have used oppression and exercised robbery and have vexed the poor and needy. Yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.
Ezekiel 22:28-30 And her prophets.(speaking here of false prophets).have daubed them with untempered.mortar.(will fall apart in awhile), seeing vanity and divining lies.(like:."let me tell you brother what the lord said unto me when I was before his very throne in heaven, before his very throne I was, do you believe me brothers and sisters? I hope so cause it's too bad for you if you don't get this message I'm going to give you right from the throne of God"; divining lies crap like that elevating the person as an example for you that they must be right, because it all seems to work for them; problem is you too are at the throne of God whenever in prayer, meditation, contemplation and study, so why let another determine what is right for you;.know Christ yourself.{Philippians 3:10; 1John 5:20} and follow not the specifics of another's life, but their good example {1Corinthians 10:11; John 20:31} the difference being, an example of one who prays studies, etc. and the specifics being when he plays this part of a false seer:.Philippians 2:12,13).unto them, saying, This says the Lord God.(this is what God is really like), when the Lord has not spoken.(Matthew 7:15). The people of the land.(what people? well, what people can exercise oppression and vex the poor and can pay the lawyers to continually cover their rear end? Ever hear of income tax and the myriad of other taxes the wealthy can escape and the poor generally can't?).have used oppression and exercised robbery and have vexed the poor and needy.(more on the poor amongst you:.John 12:8). Yea, they have oppressed the stranger.(temporary inhabitant).wrongfully. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.
Ezekiel 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them. I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath. Their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, says the God.
Ezekiel 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them. I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath. Their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, says the God.
Ezekiel 23:25 And I will set my jealousy against you and they shall deal furiously with you. They shall take away your nose and your ears and your remnant shall fall by the sword. They shall take your sons and your daughters and your residue.(whatever's left, like your place of living, etc.).shall be devoured by fire.

Ezekiel 23:34 You shall even drink it and suck it out and you shall break the sherds.(clay pottery).thereof and pluck off your own breasts, for I have spoken it, says the Lord God.
Barnes Notes: the barbarous.custom of mutilation.satanists back then did to others. JFB Commentary: oriental beauties wore ornaments in the ear and nose. How just the retribution, that the features most bejeweled should be mutilated. So, allegorically as to Judah, the spiritual adulteress.
Ezekiel 23:35 Therefore thus says the Lord God; Because you have forgotten me.(Jeremiah 6:15-17).and cast me behind your back, therefore bear you also your lewdness and your whoredoms.

Ezekiel 23:37 That they have committed adultery and blood is in their hands and with their idols have they committed adultery and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them.

Ezekiel 23:39 For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary.(where was that?).to profane it and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house.

Ezekiel 24:9-11 Therefore thus says the Lord God; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great. Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh and spice it well and let the bones be burned. Then set it empty upon the coals thereof, that the brass of it may be hot and may burn and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it, that the scum of it may be consumed. 

Ezekiel 24:12 She has wearied herself with lies and her great scum went not forth out of her.(so stupid is the way of the low consciousness of people in that the ways of living from this low level wear people down, but they are too dumb to ask {Matthew 7:7} themselves what's going on, too unthinking to find answers and do something about it). Her scum shall be in the fire.
God is dealing with the scum on the Earth as reported by Janet Ossebaard, in this final and permanent cleanup of evil before the next step. How will God accomplish this?
Ezekiel 24:13 In your filthiness is lewdness. Because I have purged you and you were not purged, you shall not be purged from your filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest upon you.
God's heart was always to help clean up people from the ways they have been that have brought heartache into their lives, but the people back then turned away from anything to do with God:.Jeremiah 44:16,17.
Ezekiel 24:14 I the Lord have spoken it. It shall come to pass because I will do it. I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent.(repent means change). According to your ways and according to your doings, they judge you, says the Lord God.
It's the multiversal laws set up by God to work as they do that judge us, that is we reap what we have sown and all for our learning to see that turning to God, with all that means,  is what we are here to learn.

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary:."The pot on the fire represented Jerusalem.besieged by the Chaldeans. All orders and ranks were within the walls, prepared as a prey for the enemy. They ought to have put away their transgressions as the scum, which rises by the heat of the fire is taken from the top of the pot. But they grew worse and their miseries increased. Jerusalem was to be levelled with the ground. The time appointed for the punishment of wicked men may seem to come slowly, but it will come surely..."

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus saith the Lord God; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for the old hatred; therefore.thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines and I will cut off the Cherethims and destroy the remnant of the sea coast. And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.
Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus saith the Lord God; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for the old hatred; therefore.thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines and I will cut off the Cherethims.(the Cherethites and Pelethites were inhabitants of Southern Philistia, generally called Philistine people:.Zephaniah 2:5).and destroy the remnant of the sea coast. And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.
Ezekiel 26:3,4 Therefore this says the Lord God; Behold, I am against you, O Tyrus and will cause many nations to come up against you, as the sea causes his waves to come up. And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus and break down her towers. I will also scrape her dust from her and make her like the top of a rock. 

Ezekiel 26:5 It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea. For I have spoken it, says the Lord God. And it shall become a spoil to the nations.

Ezekiel 26:12 And they shall make a spoil of thy riches and make a prey of thy merchandise and they shall break down your walls and destroy your pleasant houses and they shall lay thy stones and your timber and your dust in the midst of the water.

Ezekiel 27:3,4 And say unto Tyrus, O thou that are situate at the entry of the sea, which are a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus says the Lord God; O Tyrus, you have said, I am of perfect beauty. Your borders are in the midst of the seas, your builders have perfected your beauty.
Tyrus was a beautifully situated city with fine new buildings.
Ezekiel 27:8 The inhabitants of Zidon.and Arvad were thy mariners. Thy wise men, O Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.

Ezekiel 27:10 They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in your army, your men of war. They hanged the shield and helmet in you. They set forth your comeliness.(they helped glorify you into a great nation).

Ezekiel 27:13 Javan, Tubal and Meshech.(Javan, Tubal & Meshech:.Ezekiel 39:1), they were your merchants who traded the men and women.(slave traders).and vessels of brass in your market.

Ezekiel 27:14 They of the house of Togarmah.(Armenia).traded in your fairs with horses and horsemen and mules.

Ezekiel 27:15 The men of Dedan were your merchants. From their many isles you got merchandise for yourself. They even brought for you gifts of horns of ivory and ebony.

Ezekiel 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus.(this prince of Tyrus is a type of the dark side, the devil, the uncaring, unloving side; selfishness:.1Kings 20:1-28), Thus says the Lord God; Because your heart is lifted up.(*).and you have said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet you are a man and not God, though you set your heart as the heart of God. 

Ezekiel 28:3-7 Behold, you are wiser than Daniel.(Barnes Notes:."a statement of strong irony"). There is no secret that they can hide from you. With your wisdom and with your understanding you have gotten yourself riches and have gotten gold and silver into your treasury. By your great wisdom and by your traffick.(commerce; evil commerce such as we have today with child stealing for purposes of trafficking them to sell for money; see the Janet Ossebaard reports and see what Charlie's guest Altiyan Childs has to say).have you increased your riches and your heart is lifted up because of your riches. Therefore thus says the Lord God; Because you have set your heart as the heart of God; Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon you, the terrible of the nations and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom and they shall defile your brightness.
James 2:13.
Ezekiel 28:9 Wilt you yet say before him that slays you, I am God? But you shall be a man and no God in the hand of him that slays you.

Ezekiel 28:10 You shall die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers, for I have spoken it, says the Lord God.
JFB Commentary: on 'deaths of the uncircumcised', that is, such a death as the Godless ones who revel in evil become worthy of and perhaps, also, such as such evil one inflict upon others. This death is a great ignominy and fit retribution.
Ezekiel 28:11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus and say unto him, Thus says the Lord God; You seal up the sum, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Comprised with.Eclectic Notes: This human figure is the physical type of the angel Lucifer who was created perfect. What is said here of the ruler of Tyrus as king could never be said of a human being. Hardly any of the descriptions given in these verses can be applied to the King of Tyrus. 

The description fits another being, the one who was originally the greatest and most beautiful creature of God, but had become a fallen creature and the enemy of God; Lucifer (meaning 'light bringer') became Satan (meaning 'adversary'), because of his choices:.Hebrews 2:7; Ezekiel 28:14,15

Lucifer's original greatness and his fall, is revealed in connection with the King of Tyrus. Satan was the power behind the throne of the Tyrian King, as Satan is still the God of this age (2Corinthians 4:4) who controls the kingdoms of the world. How and through.whom?

Satan.(original for 'Satan' is 'adversary', 'accuser' {*}), was formerly this great being named Lucifer. Now called Satan, he stands behind those.(*), looking for every opportunity.(1Peter 5:8), as the domineering power, to influence.(*).

The descriptions given of Lucifer as an unfallen being, show that he was originally a marvelous being, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. From Jude's epistle we learn that even the great archangel Michael still recognized in him the grandeur of his unfallen past and did not bring a railing accusation against him (Jude 1:8,10). He was in Eden, the garden of God and every precious stone was his covering. It is a description of Satan's original place and of his great beauty. Furthermore, he was the anointed cherub that covered: Ezekiel 28:14,15, below. The Lord had set him to be this, as the anointed, divinely chosen cherub he held an exalted position in connection with the government of the throne of God. Everything shows that this majestic creature possessed a place of great dignity, being."upon the holy mountain of God", walking up and down in the midst of the stones of fire, he was ever present and moving about in the fiery glory of a holy and righteous God:.Ezekiel 28:14,15 "You are the anointed cherub that covers and I have set you so to be. You were upon the holy mountain of God You have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created till unrighteousness was found in you.".Surely the first part of this verse could never apply to the King of Tyrus nor to any other human. It is a picture of the unfallen glorious creature of God. But unrighteousness was found in him. As a result a divine sentence is pronounced upon him. Yet this sentence in verses 16,17 is not yet executed. He is not yet cast out in the fullest sense, nor bruised completely, nor is he in the lake of fire. All this is future. God in His all-wise purpose delays the complete execution of this judgment. But the day will come when he, who walked once in the presence of the glory of God, in the midst of the stones of fire (he once was a bright and shining being), will be cast into the lake of fire, his eternal abode. What was his sin?."Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty. You have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness.".He became puffed up, lifted up with pride (1Timothy 3:6) on account of his own beauty and brightness. His mind was on his own greatness, not on what his greatness could do for others. The individual so closely linked with the King of Tyrus is Satan. This passage contains one of the most interesting revelations we have in the Bible on the individuality and dignity of that now fallen being. Ezekiel 28.18,19 shows that the king is in view and the fate of his city Tyrus: "I have turned you to ashes upon the Earth in the sight of all them that behold you.".Who are those today beholding to Satan?

Ezekiel 28:13 You have been in Eden the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering; the sardius, topaz and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald and the carbuncle.(ruby).and gold. The workmanship of your tabrets and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.(Lucifer was very good with music).

Ezekiel 28:14 You.(who was this?).are the anointed cherub that covers.(overlooks all that's going on with humanity:.Job 1:7).and I have set you so. You were upon the holy mountain of God. You have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.(Clarke's Commentary: Your floors have been paved with precious stones, that shone and sparkled like fire).

Ezekiel 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity was found in you.
How could a perfect being get into iniquity? It's the direction of the mind. At all times there is free choice with sentient beings. One may be perfect in their ways, but what about the heart? Is it growing in love or not? If it's not then it's a drawing back:.Hebrews 10:38,39
This fact would have been hard to accept, especially when one's mind keeps rolling around that these lesser beings, these humans, eventually would be ruling over you?.1Corinthians 6:3. And so, this once great Lucifer, became Satan the adversary and accuser.
Ezekiel 28:16,17 By the multitude of your merchandise they have filled the midst of you with violence and you have sinned. Therefore I will cast you as profane out of the mountain of God and I will destroy you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty.(had his mind on self, not on how to benefit others). You have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness.(Lucifer was the brightest one around). I will cast you to the ground, I will lay you before kings, that they may behold you.
The kings of the Earth through the ages have adopted the evils of this once great, beautiful, full of wisdom being. See the application of evil today and through whom have allowed themselves to be such as they are.
Ezekiel 28:18 You have defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities.(Lucifer allowed himself to develop many reasonings against God and God's plan for humanity), by the iniquity of your traffick.(original 'merchandise'; although this verse is speaking of those invisible beings on the dark side and of those who receive influences from the devil, it can be applied to us being so busy with things of concern that spiritual considerations are left off with and that takes you away from God, as Job learned; people today are always out shopping for things, which takes much time); therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of you, it shall devour you and I will bring you to ashes upon the Earth in the sight of all them that behold you.

Ezekiel 28:19 All they that know you among the people shall be astonished at you. You shall be a terror.(original 'predisposed to trouble').and never shalt you be any more.
No longer would this being ever again be in the position that he threw away.
Ezekiel 28:22,23 And say, Thus says God; Behold, I am against you.(God is all for us if we are all for God in our hearts and if our hearts are set against the true, kind God, then we aren't in alignment with him and away from his blessings and eventual reward), O Zidon and I will be glorified in the midst of thee and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall have executed judgments in her and shall be sanctified in her. For I will send into her pestilence and blood into her streets and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side and they shall know that I am God.

Ezekiel 29:3 Speak and say, Thus says God, Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lies in the midst of his rivers which has said, My river is mine own and I have made it for myself.
Selfishness and control and lack of caring for others is typical of a low consciousness level of mind..(*)
Ezekiel 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.

Ezekiel 30:4-8 And the sword shall come upon Egypt and great pain shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt and they shall take away her multitude and her foundations shall be broken down. Ethiopia and Libya and Lydia and all the mingled people and Chub and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword. Thus says God, They also that uphold Egypt shall fall and the pride of her power shall come down. From the tower of Syene.(JFB:.Grotius translates."from Migdol {a fortress near Pelusium on the north of Suez} to Syene {in the farthest south}"); that is, from one end of Egypt to the other).shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord God. And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted. And they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have set a fire in Egypt and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.

Ezekiel 30:10 Thus says God, I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar-II king of Babylon.

Ezekiel 30:11,12 He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall be brought to destroy the land and they shall draw their swords against Egypt and fill the land with the slain. And I will make the rivers dry and sell the land into the hand of the wicked and I will make the land waste and all that is therein, by the hand of strangers. I God have spoken it.

Ezekiel 30:13 Thus says God, I will also destroy the idols and I will cause their images to cease out of Noph and there shall be no more a prince of the land of Egypt and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 30:14 And I will make Pathros desolate and will set fire in Zoan and will execute judgments in No.
Easton's Dictionary: The name generally given to an early division of Egypt was Pathros. Another division was Upper Egypt, also called Southern Egypt (the Greeks called it 'Thebaid'), as distinguished from Matsor or Lower Egypt (Isaiah 11:11; Jeremiah 44:1), the two forming Mizraim. After the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar-II, colonies of the ancient.Israelites settled "in the country of Pathros" and other parts of Egypt. The early inhabitants were called the Pathrusim and were descendants of Mizraim:.Genesis 10:6,14.
Ezekiel 30:15-17 And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt and I will cut off the multitude of No. And I will set fire in Egypt. Sin shall have great pain and No shall be rent asunder and Noph shall have distresses daily. The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword and these cities shall go into captivity.

Ezekiel 30:18,19 At Tehaphnehes.(a city in ancient Egypt; modern 'Tel Defenneh' or 'Tel Defneh' located approximately 18 miles {29 kilometers} east southeast from Tanis).also the day shall be darkened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her. As for her, a cloud shall cover her and her daughters shall go into captivity. Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt and they shall know that I am the Lord.

Ezekiel 31:18 To whom are you thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shall you be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the Earth. You shall lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, says the Lord God.

Ezekiel 32:7,8 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven and make the stars thereof dark. I will cover the sun with a cloud and the moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord God.

Ezekiel 32:9 I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known.

Ezekiel 33:1-5 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, speak to the children of your people and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts and set him for their watchman.(Isaiah 21:6).and if when he sees the sword come upon the land, he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whosoever hears the sound of the trumpet and takes not warning, if the sword come and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet and took not warning, his blood shall be upon him. But he that takes warning shall deliver his soul. 

Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come and blows not the trumpet and the people be not warned, if the sword come and take anyone from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity.(he is responsible for his own life, BUT..), but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand
1Thessalonians 5:6 "Therefore let us not sleep, as do others, but let us watch and be sober."
Ezekiel 33:7 So you, O son of man, I have set you to be a watchman unto the house of Israel. Therefore you shall hear the word at my mouth and warn them from me. 

Ezekiel 33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, you shall surely die, if you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at your hand

Ezekiel 33:9 Nevertheless, if you warn the wicked of his way to turn from it, if he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your soul. 

Ezekiel 33:10 Therefore, O you son of man, speak unto the house of Israel, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us and we pine away.(pine away is to rot away, fade away, to leave things as they are, do nothing about them).in them, how should we then live?
Verses 1-10 reiterated here, from.Ezekiel 3:16-19.
Ezekiel 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, says the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn you, turn you from your evil ways. For why will you die.(Ezekiel 18:31), O house of Israel?.(who is 'Israel' today?)

Ezekiel 33:12 Therefore, you son of man, say unto the children of your people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression. As for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turns from his wickedness, neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sins.
It's talking about the thinking that one's own righteous ways would count toward wiping out or balancing bad things that are continually being done by him or her. Such was the thinking of the Pharisees at the time of Emmanuel being on Earth. The verse is contrasting one's own righteousness with the righteousness of God, the true righteousness (Romans 3:21,22) based on love.
Ezekiel 33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered, but for his iniquity that he has committed, he shall die for it.

Ezekiel 33:14-16 Again, when I say unto the wicked, You shall surely die; if he turn from his sin and do that which is lawful and right; If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity, he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of his sins that he has committed shall be mentioned unto him. He has done that which is lawful and right. He shall surely live.

Ezekiel 33:17-20 Yet the children of your people say, The way of the Lord is not equal.(or, not fair), but as for them, their way is not equal.(people often do not see that which they accuse another of, they themselves are also guilty of). When the righteous turns from His righteousness and commits iniquity, he shall even die thereby. But if the wicked turn from his wickedness and does that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby. Yet you say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O you house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.
How judged?
Ezekiel 33:21-23 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, on the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten. Now the hand of the Lord was upon me in the evening, before he that was escaped came and had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning and my mouth was opened and I was no more dumb. Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 33:24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one and he inherited the land, but we are many, so the land is given us for inheritance.
They figured that because ancient Abraham received certain promises from God and that Abraham was of their lineage, they too will simply inherit it all. What they missed in their thinking was, Abraham had a good heart for God and they didn't.
Ezekiel 33:25-28 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; You eat with the blood and lift up your eyes toward your idols and shed blood.(these ancients sacrificed animals to Gods represented by objects their own hands had made; how stupid; what else did they do?).and then expect yourselves to possess the land? You stand upon your sword.(relied on their warring capabilities, not on the true God). You work abomination and you defile every one his neighbour's wife; how can you expect to possess the land? Say you thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord God, As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence. For I will lay the land most desolate and the pomp of her strength shall cease and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, so that none shall pass through.

Ezekiel 33:29 Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.

Ezekiel 33:30 Also, you son of man, the children of your people still are talking against you.(gossip).by the walls and in the doors of the houses and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you and hear what is the word that comes forth from the Lord.
They had their phony-baloney.religions back then too.
Ezekiel 33:31 And they come unto you as the people come and they sit before you as my people and they hear your words, but they will not do them, for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness.
Ezekiel 33:31 And they come unto you as the people come.(they act as though they were with you in every way; they listen to you, sympathize with you and smile calmingly at you).and they sit before you as my people and they hear your words.(they listen to you but they really don't care at all), but they will not do them.(to them, your ideas and words will go in one ear and out the other; they're not out to help in any way:.Isaiah 30:10; that's how you can tell if they are really of the dark side and probably don't even know that they are; they just feel that they are right {Proverbs 14:12} and think that what you may be saying is not relevant to others), for with their mouth they show much love.(oh, yes my son, yes my son, I know what you're saying and I'll see what we can do about it, but they don't, dispensing with you in their heart as quickly as they can), but their heart goes after their covetousness.

Hosea 5:4. "They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God, for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them and they have not known the Lord."

They are after what they can get from you and if they can't, they'll try to from others:.Jude 1:16 "These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts and their mouth speaks great swelling words, to get humans to follow them, because of advantage."

Ezekiel 33:32 And, lo, you are unto them as a very lovely song of one that has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument, for they hear your words, but they do them not. 

Ezekiel 33:33 And when this comes to pass, lo it will come, then shall they know that a prophet has been among them.
They avoided answering any sincere.questions regarding the spiritual knowledge pathway.
Ezekiel 34:1,2 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy and say unto them, 

Ezekiel 34:2 Thus says the Lord God unto the shepherds Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves. Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? 

Ezekiel 34:3,4 You eat the fat and you clothe yourself with the wool, you kill them that are fed, but you feed not the flock. The diseased have you not strengthened, neither have you healed that which was sick, neither have you bound up that which was broken, neither have you brought again that which was driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost, but with force and with cruelty have you ruled them.

Ezekiel 34:5,6 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains and upon every high hill. Yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth and none did search or seek after them.

Ezekiel 34:7 Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord;

Ezekiel 34:8-10 As I live, says the Lord God, surely because my flock became a prey.(the flock was used and abused for the benefit of the abusers, the governments et al of today that are corrupt).and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and fed not my flock. Therefore, O you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds and I will require my flock at their hand and cause them to cease from feeding the flock.(habing control over them and poisoning them). Neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more, for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

Ezekiel 34:11-16 For thus says the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered, so will I seek out my sheep and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.(take their land & their money, causing them to have to move away). And I will bring them out from the people.(why?).and gather them from all countries.(where they had been scattered).and will bring them to their own land and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture.(prosperity for them).and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be. There shall they lie in a good fold and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed my flock and I will cause them to lie down, says the Lord God. I will seek that which was lost.(Matthew 10:6).and bring again that which was driven away and will bind up that which was broken and will strengthen that which was sick,  but I will destroy the fat and the strong.(those who regard my people as this...); I will feed them with judgment.(they'll get what they deserve).

Ezekiel 34:17-23 And as for you, O my flock, thus says the Lord God; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.(those of mankind and those of humanity). Does it seem a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture.(took all the good stuff for themselves, just as the cabal always has done), but you must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures?.(do what you can according to the direction God has started) and to have drunk of the deep waters, but you must foul the residue with your feet.(what's this mean?)? And as for my flock, they eat that which you have trodden with your feet.(garbage food, just as today with  genetically modified, processed and poisoned crap).and they drink that which you have fouled with your feet.(poisoning the water, beer & wine, pop etc). Therefore thus says the Lord GOD unto them, Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle. Because you have thrust with side and with shoulder and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad; Therefore will I save my flock and they shall no more be a prey and I will judge between cattle and cattle. And I will set up one shepherd over them and he shall feed them, even my servant David, he shall feed them and he shall be their shepherd.

Ezekiel 34:24 And I  will be their God and my servant David a prince among them. I God have spoken it.
Isaiah 2:11-21.
Ezekiel 35:3 And say unto it, Thus says the God, Behold, O mount Seir, I am against you and I will stretch out my hand against you and I will make you most desolate.

Ezekiel 35:4 I will lay your cities waste and you shall be desolate and you shall know that I am the Lord.

Ezekiel 35:5 Because you have had a perpetual hatred.(racism, division, prejudice, variance; comes from not believing that we are connected in the oneness, which would open the door to some sanity).and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity.(their extremely low consciousness attitude was, don't help the guy when he's down, step on him and hurt him some more), in the time that their iniquity had an end.
They didn't deserve what you harshly and hardheartedly did to them.

Israel is often used as an example (Romans 15:4), as back then God wanted that nation to exemplify high consciousness of love as an standard other nations could follow:.Deuteronomy 4:6; 7:6; 8:20;14:2; 15:6; 26:18,19. Today, the name Israel is still used for the same reason, though Israel today is an Israel in one's heart, meaning, the love of God in their heart and showing love toward others by action of meditation with prayer for self and others and actions of physical concern.(*).for them.

Ezekiel 35:6 Therefore, as I live, says the Lord God, I will prepare you unto blood and blood shall pursue you.(you'll have much war). Since you have not hated blood, even blood shall pursue you.

Ezekiel 35:9 I will make you perpetual desolations and your cities shall not return.(you won't return from captivity to them; today the captivity is what?).and you shall know that I am the Lord.

Ezekiel 36:8-15 But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to my people of Israel, for they are at hand to come. For, behold, I am for you and I will turn unto you and you shall be tilled and sown and I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it and the cities shall be inhabited and the wastes shall be builded and I will multiply upon you man and beast and they shall increase and bring fruit and I will settle you after your old estates and will do better unto you than at your beginnings and you shall know that I am the Lord. Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel and they shall possess thee and you shall be their inheritance and you shall no more henceforth bereave them of men. Thus says the Lord God; Because they say unto you, Your land devours.up men and has bereaved thy nations; Therefore you shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations any more, saith the Lord God. Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the heathen any more, neither shall you bear the reproach of the people any more, neither shall you cause thy nations to fall any more, says the Lord God.

Ezekiel 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water.(spiritual energy producing a new attitude, verse 27 and Hebrews 9:13,14; 10:22; Ephesians 5:26; Jeremiah 33:8).upon you to clean you from all filthiness and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Ezekiel 36:26.A new heart also will I set and a new spirit will I put within. And I will take away the stony heart.(what produced the heart of stone?).out of flesh, replacing it with a heart of flesh.(feelings of care).
When God wants you, He awakens your mind to a spiritual.focus. And in that today, everyone is included:.1Timothy 2:4. Non spiritually inclined people may hear the things of the pathway of life, but holding onto their ego sets, they become incapable of receiving and retaining spirituality.
Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you and cause.(or, 'enable you'; not a forcing.but a change of direction from ego living to higher consciousness things).you to walk in my statutes and you shall keep my judgments.(and what are they for today?.Matthew 22:36-40).and do them.
One will very much come to see their advantage and want to do them as he or she will see all the good they do for everyone, including themselves.

God is so sure of the good that the power of His spirit will do for a person, that God speaks confidently of it. He should know, He made us!

Ezekiel 36:28 And you shall dwell in the land.(now a spiritual 'land').that I gave to your fathers and you shall be my people and I will be your God.

Ezekiel 37:1-14 The hand of God was upon me and carried me away in the spirit and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones and caused me to pass by them round about and behold, there were very many in the open valley and lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O God, you know. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones and say unto them, O you dry bones, hear the word of God. Thus says the God unto these bones. Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you and you shall live and I will lay sinews upon you and will bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin and put breath in you and you shall live and you shall know that I am God. So I prophesied as I was commanded and as I prophesied, there was a noise and behold a shaking and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them and the skin covered them above, but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man and say to the wind, This says the God, Come from the four winds, O breath and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me and the breath came into them and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel.(Israel today is a spiritual Israel of which all are in it who are of the Creator's love: 1John 4:8,16). Behold, they say, Our bones are dried and our hope is lost. We are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus says the God, Behold, O my people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves.(resurrection).and bring you into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am God, when I have opened your graves.(the Creator always wants His creation to recognize that what His instructions were are best for them), O my people and brought you up out of your graves,

Ezekiel 37:14 And shall put my spirit in you and you shall live and I shall place you in your own land. Then shall you know that I your God have spoken it and performed it, says God.

Ezekiel 37:15-20 The word of God came again unto me, saying, Moreover, you son of man, take thee one stick and write upon it for Judah and for the children of Israel his companions. Then take another stick and write upon it, for Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions and join them one to another into one stick and they shall become one in thine hand. And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Will you not show us what you mean by these? Say unto them, Thus says God, Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph which is in the hand of Ephraim and the tribes of Israel his fellows and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah and make them one stick and they shall be one in mine hand and the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes

Ezekiel 37:21 And say unto them, thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen.(heathen today is the ego world), whither they be gone and will gather them on every side and bring them into their own land. 

Ezekiel 37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel and one king shall be king to them all and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.

Ezekiel 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions, but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned and will cleanse them; so shall they be my people and I will be their God.

Ezekiel 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them and they all shall have one shepherd. They shall also walk in my judgments and observe my statutes and do them.

Ezekiel 37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt and they shall dwell therein, even they and their children and their children's children for ever and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

Ezekiel 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them. It shall be an everlasting covenant with them and I will place them and multiply them and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

Ezekiel 37:27,28 My tabernacle also shall be with them. Yea, I will be their God and they shall be my people.(God always wanted a people to love Him:.Jeremiah 7:23-28; Hebrews 9:9). And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Isaiah 61:2 "To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all that mourn."
Isaiah 63:4 "For the day of vengeance is in mine heart and the year of my redeemed is come."

The heathen here being, when considering it in the light of New Testament times, those of ego level with 'Israel' being those of a higher consciousness level."

Ezekiel 38:1-10 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal and prophesy against him and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal and I will turn thee back and put hooks into thy jaws and I will bring thee forth and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords, Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them, all of them with shield and helmet, Gomer and all his bands, the house of Togarmah of the north quarters and all his bands and many people with thee. Be thou prepared and prepare for thyself, thou and all thy company that are assembled unto thee and be thou a guard unto them. After many days thou shalt be visited. In the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste, but it is brought forth out of the nations and they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm. Thou shall be like a cloud to cover the land, thou and all thy bands and many people with thee. Thus saith the Lord God, It shall also come to pass that at the same time shall things come into thy mind and thou shalt think an evil

Ezekiel 38:11 And you shall say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages.(Zechariah 2:4,5); I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls and having neither bars nor gates.

Ezekiel 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains sats the Lord God. Every man's sword shall be against his brother.

Ezekiel 39:1 Therefore, you son of man, prophesy against Gog.(Revelation 12:8).and say, Thus says the Lord God; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech.and Tubal;
Sons of Japheth, from whom came the Muscovites (inhabitants of Moscow, Russia):.Genesis 10:2.
Ezekiel 39:4 You shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your bands and the people that is with you. I will give you unto the ravenous birds of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

Ezekiel 39:18 You shall eat the flesh of the mighty and drink the blood of the princes of the Earth, of rams, of lambs and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.

Ezekiel 39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.

Ezekiel 39:23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel.(who is Israel today?).went into captivity.(and time and time again this happened).for their iniquity.(Psalms 106:43; 2Chronicles 21:10), because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them.(*),

Ezekiel 39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them and hid my face from them.

Ezekiel 39:27 When I have brought them again from the people and gathered them out of their enemies' lands and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations.

Ezekiel 39:28 Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity.(see verse 23, above; not that God specifically at some point of time after humans were created, decided that they go into captivity because they left off being in whatever little rapport they had with God, but that rather, it is the automatic functioning {Jeremiah 6:19} of the multiversal law of reap and sow that kicks in and brings a result; they left God, so God was gone from them:.Psalms 44:23-26).among the heathen, but I have gathered them unto their own land and have left none of them any more there.
These captivities happened so many times, it's easy to lose count of them, but God is always merciful and would bring them out again from the hardships of their captivities. One would think they would learn and they did for a while, before slipping into their old ways again.
Ezekiel 39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them, for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, says the Lord God.
Ezekiel 39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them.(the Creator wants us to know Him; if He didn't want to be found He wouldn't be; how to see Him; why he hid?), for I have poured out my spirit.(and now we can see the Creator).upon the house of Israel.(and who is Israel today?), says the Lord God.
