Ezekiel part 15       Double Trouble   Chapter 23
This is a tale of two cities. Verses 1 to 4 Aholah is the city of Samaria. Aholibah, her sister, is the city of Jerusalem. The name 'Aholah' means in the Hebrew 'her tent'. Verses 11 to 21 is the story of Aholibah. Aholibah means 'my tent is in her'. The Samaritans have devised their own religion, but God dwells in Judah.
There are two reasons for that, The first, God made a promise to David - and when God makes a promise God never breaks it. The second reason is because the temple was found in Jerusalem, Jerusalem was God's chosen place to dwell, it was God's chosen place that He should be worshipped in.
God is saying through this chapter that having the truth and not living in it is worse than not having the truth at all! Paul put it: 'It is a form of godliness, denying the power thereof'. It is having a name that you live, but you are dead. 
What they did in God's temple grieved Him greatly. Verse 36: 'The LORD said moreover unto me; Son of man, wilt thou judge Aholah and Aholibah? Yea, declare unto them their abomination', verse 39, 'For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house'.
Consider 1 Corinthians 6:19, 'What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's'.  2 Corinthians 11:1 'Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ'.  Read James 4:1-10 - God is saying here is: 'I don't want a divided heart'.
There are five things revealed through this passage.
One: He is revealing that our sin is always more serious to God than it is to us.

Secondly: our sin judges us in itself. We get the recompense and the fruit of our sin, the consequences of our sin is actually found in the fruit of the sin itself.

Thirdly: the judgement of Israel is similar to the judgement of the church today. Whether you want to call them sins of commission, things that you do; or sins of omission, things that you do not do – and I think perhaps the second, the latter, is more the case - the things that the church is not doing today, and the glory has departed.

Fourthly: God's prophet must confront sin in God's people. He must. He did.

And fifthly: God's people must die for their sin. In verse 46 to 49 we find that these two were told to be dragged out, the one that was living in fact, and to be stoned – for that was the laws penalty for adultery and prostitution. That speaks to me that God does not wink or wipe His eye at our sin. We are to mortify our sin.
John Wesley said: 'Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen, such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on earth'. We need men and women afraid of sin and who desire God!

Facing Goliath: How a Man Overcomes His Giants to Follow Christ.

Every Wednesday at 7pm, 4th - 25th Sept 2019.
Continuing our series from earlier this year....
Overcome giants and experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. When it comes to their spiritual journey, many men feel defeated. Hindered by 'giants'; they stand motionless feeling like wimps instead of warriors.

Whether they feel intimidated, unmotivated, or just downright out of touch with what it means to pursue a relationship with God, Facing Goliath offers help to every man who wants to overcome his giants and experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

This course will help men learn Christian essentials in a way that appeals to those who are seeking what it means to be a follower of Jesus and those who have already found Jesus and want to grow.
Woman2Woman's Friday morning Bible Study session has moved to Mossvale! We are studying "Goliath Must Fall" by Louie Giglio.

All woman welcome - there is no need to own or read the book as we will cover each topic in our discussions. Every Friday at 9.45am in the Group Room, Mossvale Hall.
