Mar. 28. SOUR GRAPES AND CHILDREN’S TEETH.

Ezek. 18:1-32 “The fathers have eaten sour grapes, And the children’s teeth are set on edge.” Judah was accusing God of being unfair. Their fathers had sinned and they felt that they were being punished for those sins. Not so! They were being held accountable for their own lives. A person may be affected for good or evil by the life of another, but he will not be saved or lost due to that person’s deeds. The Lord instructed Ezekiel to explain His policy of each individual being responsible for his own life.   If a person lives a righteous…

Mar. 27. TWELVE APOSTLES CHOSEN.

Mt. 10:1-4; Mk. 3:13-19; Lk. 6:12-16   Many times when Jesus wanted to be alone, He would go out to a mountain.  This night, He was near His home base of Capernaum.  Since it was just before a momentous occasion, He prayed to God all night. We should pray for guidance when making great decisions in our lives.   It had been more than a year since Jesus had begun His ministry and He was ready to choose twelve apostles who would work as a special team.  These twelve men were to plant, organize and train the early church.  He also…

Mar. 26. EAGLES AND VINES.

Ezek. 17:1-24   The Lord, through the prophet, Jeremiah had urged Jehoiakim several years earlier to surrender to the Babylonians to prevent the destruction that would come otherwise. He brought another message in the form of a parabolic riddle to Ezekiel. Two eagles were presented. The first eagle was Babylon who would take a young twig, eighteen-year-old Jehoiachin along with the younger and stronger men captive. Zedekiah and the weaker men would be left as seed and be planted. They would grow as a low vine instead of a tall tree. They would make up a weaker nation under the…
