a survivor generation

Ezekiel 14:19-23 (JDV)

Ezekiel 14:19 “Or suppose I send an epidemic into that land and pour out my wrath on it with bloodshed to wipe out both man and animal from it.
Ezekiel 14:20 Even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live” – the declaration of the Lord Yahveh – “they could not rescue their son or daughter. They would rescue only their throats by their righteousness.
Ezekiel 14:21 “For this is what the Lord Yahveh says: How much worse will it be when I send my four devastating judgments against Jerusalem – sword, famine, dangerous animals, and epidemic – in order to wipe out both man and animal from it!
Ezekiel 14:22 Even so, notice there will be survivors left in it, sons and daughters who will be brought out. Indeed, they will come out to you, and you will observe their conduct and actions. Then you will be consoled about the devastation I have brought on Jerusalem, about all I have brought on it.
Ezekiel 14:23 They will bring you consolation when you see their conduct and actions, and you will know that it was not without cause that I have done what I did to it.” This is the declaration of the Lord Yahveh.

a survivor generation

A survivor generation will emerge from the judgments and the exile which will prove that God’s actions against his own were not without cause.

God is allowing many of the things mentioned in this passage today. Could it be that he is also going to bring about a survivor generation who walk in holiness out of this generation’s ashes? May it be so.

LORD, we ask you for a future generation willing to stand for your truth, your righteousness, and against this generation’s idols.
