Ezekiel 2:7-8 “You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious. But you, son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not rebel like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you.”

When God commissions someone it’s because there is a need for what that person is sent to do. If the Jews had been earnest in seeking God and wholehearted in their obedience to Him, He would not have needed to commission Ezekiel to speak to them. We tend to react to the task ahead of us, not realizing that if that task weren’t there, we wouldn’t need to be there either! However, we shouldn’t think that because we are sent to deal with that task that we have it all together ourselves. Here, God is cautioning Ezekiel not to be like those…

Acquaint Thyself with God


Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. —Psalm 24:9-10

When viewed from the perspective of eternity, the most critical need of this hour may well be that the Church should be brought back from her long Babylonian captivity and the name of God be glorified in her again as of old. Yet we must not think of the Church as an anonymous body, a mystical religious abstraction. We Christians are the Church and whatever we do is what the Church is doing. The matter, therefore, is for each of us a personal one. Any forward step in the Church must begin with the individual.

What can we plain Christians do to bring back the departed glory? Is there some…

Rejoice In Christ

Revival Bible Study

           We are going to continue on the topic of our blessings and gifts in Christ. Last time we looked at the Salvation that we have in Christ, which seemed to be an appropriate place to start since that is where every blessing from God to the believer begins. And did you know that we have every spiritual blessing in Christ? Not most or some, but all. Think about that. Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritualblessings in heavenly [places] in Christ:” Ephesians chapter one goes on in the next couple verses to tell us that we are chosen in Him (v.4), adopted as children through Jesus Christ (v.5) and accepted in the Beloved (v.6). It is written in the next verse (v.7), “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of…

It’s Not Good Enough Apart From Christ

Revival Bible Study

It’s not good enough that people go to church, it’s not good enough that they have one kind of religion or the other. The question is have they become disciples of Jesus Christ. Are they now listening to the Lord Jesus Christ. Have they come under the rule of Jesus Christ. If they haven’t all other appeals are useless. This alone is what matters in life. It is whether today you are in a right relationship with the Son of God or you are not. If you are not in a right relationship with Him, it doesn’t matter what else you have done in your religion. You may have brought your entire wealth into the life of the church, you must still go to hell.

~ Conrad Mbewe from a sermon called “Kiss the Son”
