Blood on your Hands?
Another popular (out-of-context) Scripture thrown at us to defend the existence of a GREAT COMMISSION is Ez 3:18 "When I say to the wrong, ‘You shall certainly die,’ and you have not warned him, nor spoken to warn the wrong from his wrong way, to save his life, that same wrong man shall die in his crookedness, and his blood I require at your hand. 19But if you have warned the wrong and he does not turn from his wrong, nor from his wrong way, he shall die in his crookedness, and you have delivered your being".
We are told that if there's anyone we don't tell about Yahusha and they die, then their blood in on our hands, but if we do tell EVERYONE WE POSSIBLE CAN and they choose not to believe then their blood is on their own hands.
This erroneous teaching causes the Bride to take her eyes of her Master and the training He is doing in her TO OVERCOME AND PREPARE FOR THE WEDDING, and be lured onto a path of mockery, fake-persecution (as in you deserve it because you're behaviour is ridiculous), stalking every conversation like a pyramid-seller, trying to get on top and name-drop Yahusha wherever you can, plastering paraphenallia all over your clothes, homes, cars, businesses, making a complete mockery out of the wonderful simple message of deliverance, isolating yourself from friends and family because no one wants to be around that freakish annoying person who won't just shut up and just be pleasant (of course the excuse for being alone is YOU'RE SET-APART - and there's always a reason not to look at yourself and your stupid behaviour) . .
NOW READ THIS TEXT IN CORRECT CONTEXT :
EZEKIEL 3:1And He said to me, “Son of man, eat what you find, eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Yisharal.” 2And I opened my mouth, and He fed me the scroll. 3And He said to me, “Son of man, feed your stomach, and fill your stomach with this scroll that I am giving you.” And I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. 4And He said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Yisharal, and you shall speak to them with My words. 5“For you are not sent to a people of foreign speech and of difficult language, but to the house of Yisharal, 6not to many people of foreign speech and of difficult language, whose words you do not understand. If I had rather sent you to them, they would have listened to you. 7But the house of Yisharal is going to refuse to listen to you, for they refuse to listen to Me. For all the house of Yisharal are hard of head, and hard of heart. 8See, I shall make your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. 9Like adamant stone, harder than flint, I shall make your forehead. Do not be afraid of them, nor be discouraged at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.” 10And He said to me, “Son of man, receive into your heart all My words that I speak to you, and hear with your ears. 11 And go! Come to the exiles, to the children of your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus said the Master Yahuah,’ whether they hear, or whether they refuse.” 12And the Spirit lifted me up, and behind me I heard the sound of a great rumbling voice, “Blessed be the esteem of Yahuah from His place,” 13and the sound of the wings of the living creatures touching one another, and the sound of the wheels beside them, and the sound of a great rushing. 14And the Ruach lifted me and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit, while the hand of Yahuah was strong upon me. 15And I came to the exiles at Tel Abib, who were dwelling by the River Kebar. And I sat where they were sitting, and sat there, stunned among them, 7 Yomim. 16And it came to be at the end of 7 Yomim that the Word of hWhy came to me, saying, 17“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Yisharal. And you shall hear a word from My mouth, and shall warn them from Me. 18When I say to the wrong, ‘You shall certainly die,’ and you have not warned him, nor spoken to warn the wrong from his wrong way, to save his life, that same wrong man shall die in his crookedness, and his blood I require at your hand. 19But if you have warned the wrong and he does not turn from his wrong, nor from his wrong way, he shall die in his crookedness, and you have delivered your being. 20And when a righteous one turns from his righteousness and shall do unrighteousness, when I have put a stumbling-block before him, he shall die. Because you did not warn him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done is not remembered, and his blood I require at your hand. 21But if you have warned the righteous one that the righteous should not sin, and he did not sin, he shall certainly live because he has been warned, and you have delivered your being.” 22And the hand of Yahuah came upon me there, and He said to me, “Arise, go out into the plain, so that I might speak to you there.”23So I got up and went out into the plain, and see, the esteem [kabod] of Yahuah stood there, like the esteem which I saw by the River Kebar, and I fell on my face. 24And the Ruach entered me and set me on my feet, and spoke with me and said to me, “Go, shut yourself inside your house. 25And you, O son of man, see, they shall put cords on you and bind you with them, so that you do not go out in their midst. 26And I make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth, so that you shall be dumb and not be a corrector to them, for they are a rebellious house. 27But when I speak with you, I open your mouth, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus said the Master Yahuah.’ He who hears, let him hear. And he who refuses, let him refuse, for they are a rebellious house".
QUESTION: Who is Yahuah talking to? Us or Ezekiel?
There are many interesting conversations to be had about this chapter and the rebellious house of Yisharal, but the main point I want to make is that once again, Yahusha isn't even talking to us but Ezekiel in a specific situation and what HE should do! There are visions and scrolls and many fascinating things that are said that all hold meaning, but this is no reason for us to TAKE ON AN URGENCY AND PRESSURE NOT INTENDED FOR US, GUILT-TRIPPING ABOUT BLOOD ON OUR HANDS, FEELING BURDENED AND TURN OUR LIVES UPSIDE-DOWN WITH FOOLISH CONVERSATION, QUARRELS AND BEHAVIOUR THAT SERVE MORE AS A HINDERANCE THAN A STEPPING-STONE TO YAHUSHA WHO HAS ALREADY CHOSEN HIS BRIDE AND IS WORKING WITH HER QUITE WELL WITHOUT YOUR HELP.
It is not our job to know what He is doing across the globe with His chosen Bride, it is our job to guard the Commandments in our hearts and OVERCOME the wickedness of this world, to get our lives into order and have the disciplines of Yahusha in our day, ready whenever He taps us on the shoulder to speak, assist, get up, sit down or shut up. WE ARE TO SPEAK OUT ONLY WHEN HE TELLS US TOO
(as Ezekiel was told too).
So put off everything stopping you from entering the throneroom boldly Brothers and Sisters, and feel the amazing love that Yahusha has for you. Dive into the depths of this behaviour revolution experience, allowing Yahusha to train you and mould your behaviour to please HIM . . . and run from the freaky teachings of men sent to steal your joy (and money) . . .
Can you see how dangerous it is to misquote Scriptures out of context and build teachings around them? So detrimental to the Body !! Messages of fear and not love, to lift ourselves up, make us feel important, make us feel like our lives have purpose and legacy and make us feel self-righteous, instead of following the voice of our Bridegroom.
