Ezekiel 9:1-7
(1) And He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let the punishers of the city draw near, each with his weapon of destruction in his hand.”
(2) And look, six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-axe in his hand. And one man in their midst was clothed with linen and had a writer’s ink-horn at his side. And they came in and stood beside the bronze altar.
(3) And the esteem of the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl went up from the keruḇ, where it had been, to the threshold of the House. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer’s ink-horn at his side,
(4) and יהוה said to him, “Pass on into the midst of the city, into the midst of Yerushalayim, and you shall put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”
(5) And to the others He said in my hearing, “Pass on into the city after him and smite, do not let your eye pardon nor spare.
(6) “Slay to destruction old, young men, maidens and children and women, but do not come near anyone upon whom is the mark, and begin at My set-apart place.” So they began with the elders who were in front of the House.
(7) And He said to them, “Defile the House, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!” And they went out and smote in the city.



Dear friends!

My heart is heavy with a message that I received from the Holy Spirit. In my last prophetic update, “Ichabod - The Departure of God’s Glory,” I warned that the Glory of the Lord is leaving the nations. And as it was before with the people of Israel, God is bringing judgment upon the nations of this world. What happened to the nation of Israel was a warning and an example to all nations of how He is going to judge the world. God in His mercy gave us a perfect message throughout the generations of what He is going to do so we could avoid His wrath and judgment.


Ezekiel saw a vision of things that were happening in the spiritual realm. In his body he was in Babylon, but in the spirit God took him to Jerusalem to see how the judgment of God was coming to fulfillment.


And it came to be in the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth of the month, as I sat in my house with the elders of Yehuḏah sitting before me, that the hand of the Master יהוה fell upon me there.
(Ezekiel 8:1)



At this point Ezekiel started to see visions; visions of the spiritual things, things of the Kingdom of God. In these visions he was transported to Jerusalem.


And I looked, and behold! A likeness as the appearance of fire; from the appearance of His loins and downward, like fire. And from His loins and upward as the appearance of brightness, like the color of polished bronze. And He put out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my head. And the Spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heavens, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the opening of the inner gate facing north, where there was a seat of the image of jealousy, which provokes to jealousy. 
(Ezekiel 8:2-3)


The first thing God showed Ezekiel was the image of an idol. There was a pagan idol in the temple of the Most High God.


And He said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations which the house of Yisra’ĕl are doing here, driving Me away from My set-apart place? And you are to see still greater abominations.” 
(Ezekiel 8:6)


Then He brought me to the door of the court. And I looked and saw a hole in the wall. 
(Ezekiel 8:7)


And I went in and looked and saw all kinds of creeping creatures, abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Yisra’ĕl, carved all around on the walls. And facing them stood seventy men of the elders of the house of Yisra’ĕl, and in their midst stood Yaʽazanyahu son of Shaphan. Each one had a censer in his hand, and a thick cloud of incense went up. And He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Yisra’ĕl are doing in the dark, each one in the room of his idols? For they say, ‘יהוה does not see us, יהוה has forsaken the land.’ ” 
(Ezekiel 8:10-12)


And He said to me, “You are to see still greater abominations which they are doing.” 
(Ezekiel 8:13)


And He brought me to the door of the north gate of the House of יהוה, and I saw women sitting there, weeping for Tammuz. Then He said to me, “Have you seen this, O son of man? You are to see still greater abominations than these.” 
(Ezekiel 8:14-15)


And He brought me into the inner court of Jehovah's house, and behold, at the opening of the temple of Jehovah, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of Jehovah and their faces toward the east; and they bowed themselves eastward to the sun. And He said to me, Have you seen, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they do the hateful things which they do here? For they have filled the land with violence and have turned to provoke Me to anger ..
(Ezekiel 8:16-17)


And then God proclaimed His judgment:


“Therefore I shall indeed deal in wrath. My eye shall not pardon nor would I spare. And they shall cry in My ears with a loud voice, but I shall not hear them.” 
(Ezekiel 8:18)


Then Ezekiel saw the spiritual beings that were the executors of God’s judgment. They were angelic beings, the messengers of God, the messengers of His judgment.


He saw six men with battle-axes in their hands. These men were not ordinary. They were sent to judge people who did not bring good fruit in their lives. They came with the axes to judge these people as dead trees that were ready to cut down.


Therefore, bring forth fruits worthy of repentance. And do not suppose to say within yourselves, we have a father, Abraham. For I say to you that YAHWEH is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. But already the axe is even laid at the root of the trees; therefore, any tree not bringing forth good fruit is cut off and is thrown into fire. 
(Matthew 3:8-10)


 And with these men was another man. He had a writer’s ink-horn at his side. Seven men were standing beside the altar of God. The altar of God is the place of Judgment. It is the place where God judges the sins of people. On the altar of God blood sacrifices were made. The innocent lives of animals were brought to cover the sins of God’s people.

 Now we have the perfect sacrifice in Yeshua Hamashiah, Jesus the Messiah. He sacrificed Himself on the cross. He took the judgment for our sins upon Himself. He was sacrificed for the whole world.


“For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. “For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim. “And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. “For everyone who is practicing evil matters hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 
(John 3:16-20)


Yeshua warned us that if we do not believe in Him with our living obedience to His Word, love the darkness rather than the light, and practice evil matters without repentance, then we are already judged by God. 


In his vision, Ezekiel saw that the Glory of the Lord, His presence, was lifted up from the Mercy seat in the Holy of Holies in the Temple. There was so much idolatry going on in the Temple that God finally left the Temple, and the Temple became desolate.


We cannot mix the holy with the profane. We cannot mix any pagan practices and traditions with the worship of God. This is an abomination to the Holy One. His presence will leave the place. And when He leaves, the judgment comes shortly after:


And the glory of the God of Israel had gone on from the cherub, where it was on it, to the threshold of the house. And He called to the man clothed in linen, with the writer's inkhorn by his side. 
(Ezekiel 9:3)


And יהוה said to him, “Pass on into the midst of the city, into the midst of Yerushalayim, and you shall put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” 
(Ezekiel 9:4)



God had already proclaimed His Judgment over Jerusalem; the messengers of Judgment came into place. The Glory of the Lord was ready to leave the Temple. But before His judgment, He sent His messenger to mark the foreheads of the men who sighed and cried over all the abominations.


This is how the judgment of God happened. It was not the first time He sent His messengers, His witnesses, among people before the appointed judgment. It was not the first time the messengers looked into the hearts of the people to see if they sighed and cried over all the abominations.


The Scripture says:


And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, He condemned them with an overthrow, setting an example to men intending to live ungodly. And He delivered righteous Lot, oppressed with the lustful behavior of the lawless. For that righteous one living among them, in seeing and hearing, his righteous soul was tormented from day to day with their unlawful deeds. 
(2 Peter 2:6-8)


This is how the righteous Judgment of God works. We are all in a legal battle where the only way out of eternal imprisonment is Yeshua, His way, His commandments, and His Word, which keep us from total destruction.


Peter said:

You also as living stones are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 
(1 Peter 2:5)


After Yeshua’s death and resurrection, He started to build His spiritual house where He Himself became a cornerstone. For two thousand years, the nations had a blessed opportunity to become part of this house.

But His people are falling away from Him, from His pure and clean word, and from His way. They are turning toward the lies of Satan. Paganism and idolatry has entered into the spiritual temple of God. The elders of the Christian churches have compromised themselves with profane, demonic, and abominable things. God’s glory is leaving the nations. And He is sending His messengers of Judgment to mark those who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are going on in the churches. 


The Holy Spirit wants me to warn people that as at this moment, He is sending His messengers to mark His people. I saw in the spirit that judgment has already been proclaimed over many of elders of the churches. Their hearts have been judged, their future is sealed. Unfortunately, not many of them were marked. And those who were not marked were given up to the spirit of delusion. People, prepare yourselves for the coming judgment of the Lord over His house. 


For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God? 
(1 Peter 4:17)


And to the others He said in my hearing, “Pass on into the city after him and smite, do not let your eye pardon nor spare. “Slay to destruction old, young men, maidens and children and women, but do not come near anyone upon whom is the mark, and begin at My set-apart place.” So they began with the elders who were in front of the House. 
(Ezekiel 9:4-6)


Dear friends! God will be not mocked. He will not tolerate the idolatry and compromise among His people. He allowed the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem twice in the history of Israel. He judged Israel for their compromise and idolatry. What do you think will happen to the nations who call themselves by His name but practice abominable things? 


יהושע Messiah is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. 
(Hebrews 13:8)


From the beginning God established rules of His Judgment. When He proclaims His Judgment, the rules are enforced by His messengers. 

Dear friends, if you still think that you can live your life as you please and repent at the last moment, think again. God is sending His messengers RIGHT NOW to mark His people. If you do not repent NOW and do not change your heart NOW, the angel of God will leave you without the mark, and behind him another messenger of judgment who has an axe in his hand will cut you down, like a dry tree that does not bear any good fruit.


And see, the man clothed with linen, who had the ink-horn at his side, reported back and said, “I have done as You commanded me.” 

(Ezekiel 9:11)

And He spoke to the man clothed with linen, and said, “Go in among the wheels, under the keruḇ, and fill your hands with coals of fire from among the keruḇim, and scatter over the city.” And he went in before my eyes.

 (Ezekel 10:2)


And it came to be, when He commanded the man clothed in linen, saying, “Take fire from among the wheels, from among the keruḇim,” that he went in and stood beside the wheel. And the keruḇ stretched out his hand from among the keruḇim to the fire that was among the keruḇim, and took some, and put it into the hands of the man clothed with linen, who took it and went out. (Ezekiel 10:6-7)


And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the eastern gate of Jehovah's house, which faces eastward. And behold, twenty-five men were at the opening of the gate; … rulers of the people. (Ezekiel 11:1)
Therefore prophesy against them. Prophesy, O son of man! And the Spirit of Jehovah fell on me, and said to me, Speak: So says Jehovah: So you have said, O house of Israel, for I Myself know the elevations of your spirit. … You have feared the sword, and I will bring a sword on you, says the Lord Jehovah. And I will bring you out of her midst, and deliver you into the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments on you. You shall fall by the sword. … For you have not walked in My statutes, nor have you done My judgments, but have done after the customs of the nations all around you. (Ezekiel 11:4-12)

Dear friends! This is the word that the Holy Spirit put on my heart.


“I will judge the rulers and elders of the churches. I will bring the sword of My judgment over them, and they will not escape, because they have gone after the pagan customs of the nations and have not walked in My commandments. They are fruitless trees that are ready to be cut down with the axes of My judgment.”


And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you. And I will remove the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh, so that they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances, and do them. And they shall be My people, and I will be their God. And as to those whose heart is going after their hateful things, and also their heart is after their disgusting idols, I will give their way on their own heads, says the Lord Jehovah. 
(Ezekiel 11:19-21)


Dear friends! God has been talking to us throughout the generations. He is calling us to change our hearts to hearts that live with living faith and bring good fruit. He is calling us to remove anything from our lives that is hateful to Him, to remove any disgusting idols. And if we don’t, then the delusion of the evil one will overtake the rebellious heart. And the glory of the Lord will leave; the grace of the Lord will leave. And desolation will come into the hearts that love the wickedness and darkness of this world.


Repent, because the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
