And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there has been a prophet among them. And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost well among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. And thou shall speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious (Ezekiel 2:5 – 7).
I have eaten from the LORD’S table and I come before you that you may feast in the glory of God. The hand of God is upon me. Let no man despise the word of God, lest he shall not prosper. Children of the living God, heed to the warning of the LORD; for the heart of men is without wisdom and the knowledge of men has left them. The word of God came upon me and I cannot run from it. The rebellious shall perish. All those who have turned their ears from the warning of God shall not see the kingdom of God. Man cannot save you from your wicked ways. Why do you run after them? Who have made you into fools that you know not the ways of the LORD? Shall the goodness of God come and it shall not profit you? Shall you not eat and be filled with his glory? The day draweth near but thy thoughts are full of vain things. All thy bosoms are filled with corruption and thy path is crocked. But yet you say, thy path is straight and thy way shall bring prosperity. But I say to you, you shall not feast with the LORD, lest you turn from your wicked ways. You shall not glory, nor shall prosperity beseech you, lest you turn from your wicked ways. Turn from thy wicked ways. Make thy way straight; for the day of the LORD is at hand. Behold, I bring you this message from the most High God – eat and be filled, lest he come like a thief in the night and find you unprepared. I have eaten from the LORD’S table and I come before you that you may feast in the glory of God. The hand of God is upon me. Let no man despise the word of God, lest he shall not prosper. I tell you the truth; this God has taken away the fear of man from me, that I shall do his will and not be afraid.
