New Life (Ezekiel 11:16-25)Dr. Sylvester Williams, December 27, 2015
How will I handle the trials coming in the New Year? We say that we love God and we come to church because we love God, but the way we live doesn't reflect that we love God...
God is saying that yes he does love us and he is going to punish Israel to turn them back to me. The only way God can pull you back to him is to put you through a trial to get you back to him.
When you are weak is when God is strong. You need that new life to make you strong. One way to know you need help is to flunk a test. We don't control anything. Your life is not in your hands. God has placed a lot of love in you to get through the past and leave it in the past. People lie because we think that God would not love us if we told the truth.
But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among the heathen whither they come; and they shall know that I am the Lord.
Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying,Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water with trembling and with carefulness;And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith the Lord God of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.
