It's actually both. Bear with me; I'll explain. In the first half of Ezekiel 28:1-19, Ezekiel seems to be referring to a human man. Ezekiel 28:1-10 (ESV)  1The word of the LORD came to me: 2 "Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord GOD:     "Because your heart is proud,    and you have ...

I believe the reason people remember Sodom & Gomorrah for the sexual immorality may be due to: (1) The account in Genesis 19 where the men of the town wanted to have relations with the two angels that were spending the night at Lot's house. (2) The word sodomy creates a huge link to Sodom & Gomorrah. So yes, the traditional interpretation as you ...

That's a very good question, and the answer is, we really don't know. We have a single reference in Genesis to widespread practice of sexual immorality, but remember that this is based on one single event that took place after God had already decided to destroy it. What we do know is that not even ten righteous people could be found in the entire region. ...

Ezekiel 20:25 is not referring to any laws which God had decreed, but the laws which the people had made on their own. Since the people would not follow God's laws, he left them to their own laws. For instance, the NLT says "I gave them over to worthless decrees and regulations that would not lead to life." The laws he is referring to here are the ones ...

Your citing of Genesis 6:6 and Ephesians 4:30 is good. That's probably as far as we can go in answering your question, however. I want to say God was indeed grieved by the sin of His chief angel, Lucifer. God had invested a great deal in Lucifer. Lucifer was beautiful to behold, and he perhaps had a special place, or ranking, in the third heaven. Perhaps ...

Not everyone in Christianity believes that the third temple will be built as a physical temple. Many believe the ginormous dimensions given for the temple in Ezekiel indicate that it is actually just a spiritual temple being referred to. Some passages indicting that the view of the NT writers was that the third temple was spiritual are Acts 7:48 and ...

This is something I am currently wrestling with. What strikes me is that every Christian has far more knowledge than Ezekiel had. We know what the plans of the the Lord are for the future of every individual we meet - that he has appointed a day when he will judge the world by the man he has appointed, and that he has given proof of this to all men by ...

God makes or determines the Prophet and sets a “Prophet (as) a Watchman”. The Prophets are the Son’s of Adam, which Jesus Christ identified Himself also as the “Son of Man” or the Son of Adam. 1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? Within Christianity there are many perspectives in ...

Great question! First let's take in the whole chapter. In chapter 20 God is speaking to Ezekiel of the story of how he chose Israel. God tells how gave them good rules, to take away the idols of the other nations from their midst and they would continually disobey. Read Exodus and see how many times they fudge up. "*We should notice this, again, about ...
