Ezekiel 11:13 (JDV)

Ezekiel 11:13 Now while I was prophesying, Pelatiah son of Benaiah died. Then I fell face-down and cried out loudly, “Oh, Lord Yahveh! You are bringing the remnant of Israel to an end!”

this has to be it

Ezekiel was convinced after witnessing Benaiah’s death in a vision that the end had come. That is so typical of us. When bad things start to happen around us, we jump to the eschatology sections of our Bible study notebooks.

We know now that although God was purging Jerusalem of evil he was not bringing his remnant to an end. We have the advantage of hindsight.

LORD, give us the wisdom to stay with you until the end — without assuming that we are already there.
