Ezekiel 31 – 32

Ezekiel 31 Pharaoh as a type of PRIDE: Egypt will fall and be humbled for pride. Ezekiel 31:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, The ancient pharaoh and today’s modern Pharaoh Abdel […]

Ezekiel 25 – 26

Ezekiel 25 While this prophecy is about Jordan, Turkey and the Philistines of Gaza; it is very powerful in absolutely refuting the false traditions and false teachings of certain modern false prophets. This prophecy is about Nebuchadnezzar coming through that land, as a fore type of the latter day nations of Asia sweeping through those lands […]

Ezekiel 23 – 24

Ezekiel 23 This chapter is a condemnation of the spiritual adultery of the Ekklesia and the idolatry of physical Israel and Judah, and the correction coming from their Husband.  Remember that this was written for our instruction, and the same correction will come upon us for our own spiritual adultery against the Husband of our baptismal commitment. 2 Timothy 3:16   […]

Ezekiel 21 – 22

Ezekiel 21 This is a latter day prophecy for we are told in Haggai 5:5 that Judah and Israel will fall together and that has never happened in the past.  We are specifically told that this prophecy includes the holy places which are analogous of the latter day called out or the spiritual Temple, also falling […]

Ezekiel 19 – 20

Ezekiel 19 A lamentation for physical and spiritual Israel Physical Israel [Jacob] was born to Isaac and Rebecca and Israel became a prince among the Canaanite nations.  Then all Israel went down into Egypt by reason of great famine and then was called up out of Egypt by the hand of God, to become a great nation.  The […]

Ezekiel 17 – 18

Ezekiel 17 God uses the allegory of the kings of Judah who rebelled in that day, as an instruction that any who rebel against their baptismal marriage covenant with the King of kings will likewise be destroyed.  Ezekiel 17:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 17:2 Son of man, put forth a […]

Ezekiel 16

Introduction:  God called physical Israel out of bondage in physical Egypt, as a type of calling a kind of spiritual Israel out of bondage to sin. God in his many tender mercies has called individual persons for the past 6,000 years into the spiritual Israel of the New Covenant; in the spiritual sense calling us out of bondage to sin […]

Ezekiel 14 – 15

Ezekiel 14 Jesus Christ condemns idolatry because it is spiritual adultery against him, and God will not be inquired of by an idolater.  Anyone who idolizes men, corporate groups or ANYTHING, or obeys any person contrary to the Word of God, turning from Christ-like zeal to live by every Word of God; has cut themselves off from […]

Ezekiel 12 – 13

Ezekiel 12 As those people in that time were spiritually blind, so most of today’s Ekklesia are spiritually blind, because we will not see; for we idolize our own ways in rebellion against the Word of God.   Ezekiel 12:1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying, 12:2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst […]

Ezekiel 10 – 11

Ezekiel 10 Ezekiel sees the same flying object as he saw at the first time and again mentions the crystal base above the cherubs and the Sapphire Throne set on that crystal base. Ezekiel 10:1 Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it […]

Ezekiel 8 – 9

Ezekiel 8 The reasons why physical and spiritual Israel will go into great tribulation  This is a very powerful warning and indictment of today’s spiritual Ekklesia, who idolize men and have no zeal to live by every Word of God, preferring instead to follow the false traditions of men. Ezekiel 8:1 And it came to […]

Ezekiel 6 – 7

Ezekiel 6 This is an extremely strong prophecy about what is coming on the latter day physical and spiritual Israel for our wickedness.  Ezekiel 6 – 7 reveal what God plans to do to physical and spiritual Israel and Judah.  God will bring a sword [violence] to destroy our idols; that means that the corporate church organizations and many leaders will […]

Ezekiel 4 – 5

Ezekiel 4 God commands Ezekiel to act out a siege of Jerusalem.  If we also obey this command and act out this siege we will learn something more than we would by just reading the words.  I ask each of you to act out this as Ezekiel was instructed to do,  If you do not […]

Ezekiel 3

Ezekiel 3 Just as John was made to eat the scroll of Revelation as an example of internalizing the words of God, Ezekiel was also told to eat the words; and then both John and Ezekiel later wrote out the words of YHVH himself. Ezekiel 3:1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat […]

Ezekiel 1 – 2

Introduction Daniel and certain others were taken to Babylon about 605 B.C. Later in c 598 B.C. Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon removed Jehoiakin [Jeconiah] from the throne of Judah and replaced him with Zedekiah his brother.  This event indicates that Babylon had replaced Egypt as the regional power.   Ezekiel was taken to Babylon at […]


Jude 1:1  Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James [the younger brother of Jesus], to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Jude is directly addressing the “Called Out” of the New Covenant!  This Jude is the brother of James and both are the […]

3 John

Third John Love and the Law of God This letter is addressed personally to Gaius who is living by the truth, which is the whole Word of God, and this Epistle is by extension for all the faithful who live by every Word of God.  John first blesses all those faithful called out who live by every Word […]

2 John

Second John John identifies himself as an elder which simply means a person who is older in the faith, someone long experienced in the faith who is able to help others because of his experience and the wisdom that he has learned and been taught by God. The Ekklesia [the called out brethren]  collectively are being presented as the […]

1 John 4 – 5

1 John  4 1 John 4:1  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come [Christ will dwell in us through God’s Spirit and […]

1 John 3

1 John 3 When we sincerely repent and stop sinning, the application of the sacrifice of Christ reconciles us to God the Father; and being espoused to Christ the Son, we can receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and are then adopted as sons of the Father.  Romans 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit […]

1 John 2

1 John 2 1 John 2:1  My little children, these things write I unto you, that you sin not [Since sin is the breaking of the Word of God, John is telling us to keep the whole Word of God.].  And if any man does sin [inadvertently, or without knowing], we have an advocate with […]

1 John 1

Love and the Law of God Almost all religions define love as positive actions towards other people; and neglect putting love for God first, in essence they exalt love for man, above love for God.  In short they exalt loving man above loving God and so make an idol out of humanity as more important […]
