Then You Will Know
That I am LORD

God appointed Ezekiel
as a watchman
to warn his people
of coming judgment.
Seeing visions
and performing signs,
he called individuals
to turn from wickedness
to righteousness
because God
takes no pleasure
in the death of the wicked.
How does this message
of Ezekiel apply to you?
Are you grieved about the sin everywhere you look?
Do you long for justice?
