the end is upon you

Ezekiel 7:1-4 (JDV)

Ezekiel 7:1 This word of Yahveh happened to me:
Ezekiel 7:2 “Son of Adam, this is what the Lord Yahveh says to the land of Israel: An end! The end has come on the four corners of the land.
Ezekiel 7:3 Now the end is upon you; I will send my anger against you and judge you according to your ways. I will punish you for all your repulsive practices.
Ezekiel 7:4 I will not look on you compassionately or spare you, but I will punish you for your ways and for your repulsive practices within you. Then you will know that I am Yahveh.”

the end is upon you

Ezekiel’s people had been living life like it had no end. Well, now God tells him to announce that their end had come. It is a scary thing to think that the bill is due, and you do not have enough to pay it. That is the prophet’s message.

Each of us should look carefully at our accounts as well. We cannot go our whole lives thinking that they will not come to an end. That is being irresponsible.

LORD, give us the wisdom to live every day like it was our last. Someday it will be.
