VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. According to what we done, they shall also do

"Thus Ezekiel is to you a sign; according to all that he has done you shall do."

Ezekiel or "yechezqel" in Hebrew meaning: "GOD will strengthen". Ezekiel represents or symbolizes all believers who are strengthened by GOD, who only depend on GOD. These are people who depended on GOD for everything.

Psalms 7:10 (Amplified Bible)

7:10 My defense and shield depend on God, Who saves the upright in heart.

Psalms 52:7 (Amplified Bible)

52:7 See, this is the man who made not God his strength (his stronghold and high tower) but trusted in and confidently relied on the abundance of his riches, seeking refuge and security for himself through his wickedness.

Psalms 52:7-9 (Amplified Bible)

52:7 See, this is the man who made not God his strength (his stronghold and high tower) but trusted in and confidently relied on the abundance of his riches, seeking refuge and security for himself through his wickedness.

52:8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in and confidently rely on the loving-kindness and the mercy of God forever and ever.

52:9 I will thank You and confide in You forever, because You have done it [delivered me and kept me safe]. I will wait on, hope in and expect in Your name, for it is good, in the presence of Your saints (Your kind and pious ones).

Our confidant is the LORD. Only the LORD knows all our problems, our joys and sorrows of the heart.

We are a warning sign to unbelievers, believers don't need a sign, they need faith.
