Ezekiel 12 - 18

Ezekiel 12: Ezekiel digs through the wall of his house and brings out his belongings as if he is going into exile.
This will happen to the house of Israel and the prince.
The people of the land will eat their food in anxiety and drink their water in despair.
The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.

Ezekiel 13: The Lord's hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations.
The Lord will save his people from false prophets.

Ezekiel 14: The Lord tells Israel to turn from idols and renounce all their detestable practices.
There will be four dreadful judgements against Jerusalem. Yet there will be some survivors.

Ezekiel 15: The Lord will make the land desolate because the people have been unfaithful.

Ezekiel 16: Jerusalem compared to a baby / child / young woman / queen.
The people make idols, shrines, and are unfaithful to God.
God will deal with them as they deserve, yet remember covenant with them, and make atonement for them.

Ezekiel 17: The king of Babylon went to Jerusalem and carried off her king and her nobels, bringing them back with him to Babylon.
The Lord will bring him to Babylon and execute judgement upon him there because he was unfaithful to the Lord.

Ezekiel 18: The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him.
Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit.
The Lord takes no pleasure in the death of anyone. Repent and Live.
