2 Outlines

 

 

Ezekiel 22:23-31

PROBLEMS!

 

The nation of Israel was under judgment.  There had not been cleansing for sin. God was withholding the blessing of rain.  Problems abounded.

 

THE PROBLEM WITH PROPHETS - Vss. 25, 28

 

THE PROBLEM WITH PRIESTS - Vs. 26

 

THE PROBLEM WITH PRINCES (LEADERS) - Vs. 27

 

THE PROBLEM WITH PEOPLE - Vs. 29

 

THE PROBLEMS WITH PRAYER - Vss. 30-31

Everybody was busy doing evil. Nobody was taking the time to pray! Nobody was "standing in the gap" or "making up the hedge".

Ezekiel 22:30

THE SEARCH

 

And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in

the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

 

GOD’S RESEARCH – He was looking for a man.

 

GOD’S REQUIREMENT – The man would be a man of prayer, “making up the hedge” and “standing in the gap”.   

 

GOD’S REMORSE – He found none.
