Debbie and I drove home last night, arriving here at 4:00 AM or so. In order to get me on the road to tonight’s Revival (actually in Hoschton, Georgia) Meeting.
For that reason today’s Ezekiel Lesson will be posted tomorrow morning, the Lord willing.
The rest of today (Thursday) I will be driving to the motel an then preparing to preach this evening.
Hope ya’ll understand!
We love you in the Lord.

By the way, Ezekiel’s 16th chapter ends (verses 35-59 of it, anyway) with the theme of “judgment” upon sin!
God judging the Jews?
What about the even more wicked Babylonians?
Or the heathen Egyptians?
Then I remembered!
God ALWAYS begins judgment among His Own (when they are erring, wayward, backslidden) people!
“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the HOUSE OF GOD: and if it first begin at US, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” 1st Peter 4:17
But WHY would the Lord chasten us?
Because He loves us!
Because He wants us to grow into more holiness!
Revelation 3:19 … “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
Maybe I did share a short Lesson, after all!
