經文:以西結書第十、十一、十二章
鑰節:「我要使他們有合一的心,也要將新靈放在他們裡面,又從他們肉體中除掉石心,賜給他們肉心。」(11:19)
提要

        以西結在第十章中,繼續描述耶路撒冷的異象。他看見榮耀的基路伯(10:8、20~21),跟十四個月前在迦巴魯河邊所看見的一樣(1:1)。又看見那個穿細麻布的人--就是人子,在執行父上帝所交付的審判。以前祂在審斷那些義人,現在祂的審判是針對那些背道的惡人,把熾烈的火炭撒在他們的城上(10:2)。火炭象徵著上帝那毀城的烈火,將由巴比倫人來點燃。沒有任何方法可阻擋這些災難的發生,因為上帝已從耶路撒冷撤離祂保護的屏障,上帝的榮耀已從聖殿的東門離開,移到橄欖山以上(10:19;11:23)。有意思的是,當人們拒絕主耶穌的時候,祂也是在這座山上流淚看著整座城(路19:37~44)。

        十一章說到,有些民間的首領給人們虛假的安全感,說這個堅固的城可以保障他們的安全,好像昂貴的肉保存在深口的鍋釜中一般(11:3)。這些政府的官員,鼓勵人民和埃及結盟,一起背叛巴比倫。這和耶利米的立場相反,他倒是勸人民去投降巴比倫,以減少傷亡。這些狂妄的百姓不但自認是勇猛無敵的,還覺得自己在道德上比以西結更高超,因為他也勸人投降。事實剛好相反,那些第一批流亡的人,如但以理;以及第二批流亡的,如以西結,都是上帝所保護脫離耶路撒冷這個大鍋的好無花果(耶24章)。在上帝的計劃中,那些還留在鍋內的很快就要被倒掉,被敵人帶走。留在鍋內那些昂貴的肉,是無辜被害的義人,反不是這些邪惡的居民(11:7、11)。

        由於以西結為以色列餘民哀求(11:13),上帝對流亡者的應許終於來到。這個應許是直接向那些已在流亡途中,及北國以色列為亞述所擄之人所發出的。在這人中上帝要保留一批義民,因他們身處異邦卻憎惡偶像(11:18)。當他們自外邦歸回時,就永不再有拜偶像的事了。其實,這也正是這場災難的主要目的。

        上帝給這些餘民一些奇妙又滿有恩典的應許:他們要有合一的心;他們要作祂的子民,祂要作他們的上帝;他們不再有剛硬悖逆上帝的石心,卻要有一顆敏銳於上帝的觸摸,並順服祂的旨意的肉心(11:19~20)。這個預言不只適用於七十年被擄歸回之後,它更是在描述那些因信耶穌所獲得的救贖及重生。上帝的恩典一直延續至今。

        十二章的兩個預兆(遷徙、逃亡與驚懼),要讓那些屬靈眼瞎和耳聾的人,知道將速臨耶路撒冷的焦慮、害怕和擄掠。這些預兆也可讓那些已被擄的人認清,想儘快返回耶路撒冷是無望的。眾長老和政府官員向耶路撒冷王西底家施壓,使他背叛尼布甲尼撒王。當時,無論在流亡中的人或猶大地的人,都以為他的背叛會成功。但是,以西結很清楚預告,他們將要被打敗、逃跑、被捉、蒙羞,甚至那個「君王」西底家(原文作「王子」,因約雅斤王還活在巴比倫)還會眼瞎(12:12~14;耶52:7~11;王下25:4~7有應驗)。

        在這場大刑罰中,上帝應許要留下幾個人,好讓全以色列人知道,祂是耶和華,祂的話必要應驗(12:25、28),也讓他們在外邦之地,見證這場災難臨到的原因(12:16)。這樣,列國就知道,並非以色列的上帝無力保護祂的人民,而是因為以色列人背約拜偶像得罪上帝,所以惹動上帝的忿怒。

禱告

        主啊,您是萬王之王、萬主之主,也是忌邪的上帝,求您幫助我們不被任何事物,隔絕我們和您之間的關係。奉主耶穌基督的名,阿們!

Scriptures:Read Ezekiel 10, 11 &12
Key Verse:"... I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart... and give them a heart of flesh."(Ezekiel 11:19)
Overview

        In chapter ten, Ezekiel continues to describe his vision of Jerusalem in which he saw heavenly beings which accompanied the glory of the Lord as he had seen fourteen months earlier at the River Chebar (1:1). We learn here that they were cherubim (10:8, 20-21). Also in chapter ten, we read again about the man clothed with linen, whom we understand to be the Son. Once again, He was asked by the Father to execute judgment. In the first instance, He made a judgment of all those who were righteous. Now He is to bring judgment upon the wicked by taking the burning coals and scattering them over the apostate city that was ordained for punishment (10:2). The coals were symbolic of the actual fire that was to destroy Jerusalem when God would use the Babylonians to accomplish His purpose. As Ezekiel saw in the vision, there was nothing to prevent this from happening, for the Lord had removed His protective hedge from around Jerusalem when, with sorrow and hesitancy, His presence (glory) left the Temple by the east gate and moved over the Mount of Olives after leaving the city (10:19; 11:23). From this same mount, which overlooks the whole city, the Lord Jesus wept because of their rejection of Him (Luke 19:37-44).

        In chapter eleven, the same vision gives us a picture of the false confidence of the leaders of Jerusalem who deceived the people into believing they were secure within the strongly fortified city, just as valuable meat is safe within the protective caldron (11:3). These city officials encouraged the revolt against Babylon and supported an alliance with Egypt. In their attitude, we can see the opposition that Jeremiah faced in Jerusalem, for he had warned all the people that only if they submit to Babylon, would they live. The proud inhabitants of Jerusalem not only thought they were invincible but also morally superior to Ezekiel and the others who went with him and before him into exile. In actual fact, the opposite was true. Those of Judah who had previously gone into exile, such as Daniel in the first deportation and Ezekiel in the second, were the "good figs" (Jer. 24) whom the Lord had preserved by having them removed from the "caldron" of Jerusalem. In God's plan, the contents that remained in the caldron were soon to be dumped out as refuse and carried away by the enemy. The righteous and innocent who had been slain were the precious meat of the caldron, not the wicked inhabitants (11:7,11).

        The comforting and beautiful promise of restoration found in chapter 11 (vv. 15-20) came in response to Ezekiel's concern for the remnant of Israel (11:13). The promise is directed toward those already in exile and those of the Northern Kingdom of Israel who had long before been taken captive by the Assyrians. From these people, the Lord would preserve a righteous remnant. They would be those who, while living in the heathen land, would come to abhor idolatry (11:18). This was a tell-tale sign of the righteous (cf. 9:4). Those who returned from The Exile never again had a problem with idol worship. In this regard, their chastisement in the captivity had served its purpose.

        The Lord gave the faithful remnant some wonderful and gracious promises: they would be a unified body of believers; they would be His people and He would be their God; and instead of a heart of stone, which is obstinate and rebellious against God, the Lord would give them a heart of flesh — one which is sensitive and responsive to the touch of God and is obedient to His will (11:19-20). This prophecy must look beyond the return from the seventy-year captivity, for it most certainly describes the redemption and regeneration provided through the Lord Jesus Christ to those few who would believe in Him, and this extention of God's grace is still available today.

        In chapter twelve, we read of the two symbolic signs (packing for captivity and trembling) that Ezekiel used to make the spiritually blind and deaf people with him in Babylon try to understand the soon-coming anxiety, fear, and capture of the people of Jerusalem. These same signs showed those in the exile that their hope for a soon return to Jerusalem was in vain. Under the pressure of the elders and city officials, the king of Jerusalem, Zedekiah, would soon rebel against their Suzerain Nebuchadnezzar. The people, both in The Exile and in the land of Judah, were counting on his successful revolt. Ezekiel, however, clearly foretold of the attempted escape, defeat, capture, humiliation, and blinding of Zedekiah, whom Ezekiel here refers to as "the prince", since King Jehoiachin was still alive in Babylon (12:12-14; for fulfillment see Jer. 52:7-11; 2 Kings 25:4-7).

        In His divine punishment, the Lord promised to spare a few inhabitants of Jerusalem. The reason for this was not only for the people of Israel to know that He is the Lord who fulfills His words of prophecy (12:25, 28), but also that they might give testimony to the Gentiles as to why the calamity came upon them (12:16). The nations were not to think that the God of Israel was too weak to protect His people, but they were to know that He Himself brought it upon His people because of His wrath for their breaking the covenant and sinning against Him by practising idolatry.

Prayer

        Oh Lord, You are King of kings and Lord of lords, and You are a jealous God. Help us never to allow anything to interfere with our relationship with You.
