They'll Know That I Alone Was Serious
In the book of Ezekiel is one of those parts of the Bible that many Bible readers seem to ignore or don't understand. Ezekiel reveals the judgment of what happens when God has been pushed far enough and has had enough of sinful rebellion. Here in this part of the Bible you can see that God isn't going to hold back His judgment on mankind's disobedience any longer.
Ezekiel 6:10 simply says, "Know that I am the Lord and I am serious." Here God says, "I've had enough, and now the punishment is going to be severe."
When I read this from God's word, I can't help but think about the day we live in. Sinfulness is growing more brazen by the day. What people see on the television, hear on the radio or see on a billboard was illegal only a few years ago. Now most just accept it and go on. From how people dress to distractions of technology, immoral behavior is in the face of everyone.
There is a place- where and when, only God knows- that He is going to deal with such activities and rebellion. But I'll bet we are pretty close now that that time.
God will not be mocked, nor will He be used as a symbol on the world's playground to be called on when people say He is needed. One today should take a very serious look at where their true heart loyalties are, because God is, and soon now we all are going to find out.
