The book of Ezekiel contains some of the most incredible prophecies in the Bible, including a detailed description of a nuclear war and the cleanup afterward. Ezekiel was a prophet who ministered to a nation experiencing judgment for their sins. His prophecies hold poignant lessons for us today.
The name Ezekiel means "God strengthens" or "God will strengthen." Ezekiel is one of the three that were called "captivity prophets" (the other two are Jeremiah and Daniel). Ezekiel never mentions Jeremiah in his writings, but he does mention Daniel three times.
Ezekiel was one of the most fascinating and extraordinary prophets of the Old Testament. He was held captive with King Jehoiachin in the second of three deportations under Nebuchadnezzar, years before Jerusalem was overthrown. Daniel had been in Babylon years before Ezekiel arrived.
This prophetÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs use of symbols and allegory in his writing make this book an intriguing study. From a remarkable vision of GodÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs Throne to the infamous vision of the ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«Valley of Dry BonesÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ (which has stunning implications for the 20th century), the Book of Ezekiel is permeated with mystery. As if that is that is not enough to spark your curiosity, Missler discusses the incredible life of the prophet as well.
A man unlike any other, EzekielÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs life was actually intended to be a symbol to Israel. Because of this he engages in some strange behavior: ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«He shut himself up in his home, bound himself, and was struck dumb. He was to lie on his right and his left sides for a total of 430 days, he ate bread that was prepared in an unclean manner, and he shaved his head and beard, which was shameful for those in his callingÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ (comments by Chuck Missler).
