EZEKIEL

The most difficult task of a prophet is to change people’s minds.  This means pulling up the weeds of false theology and planting the good seed of the Word of God.  It also means tearing down the flimsy thought structures that false prophets build and constructing in their place lasting building on solid foundations of truth (Ezek. 13:10; 2 Cor. 10:3-6)

Ezekiel was now to receive his official commission as a prophet of the Lord God, and the Lord told him he was facing a very difficult task.  Whether it’s raising a family, teaching a Sunday school class, shepherding a church, or evangelizing in a distant nation, we have to accept people as they are before we can lead them to what God wants them to be.
