A Mission's Formation

 When God has a calling over a person, He appears to him or her in a vision, speaks to them through His word or sends a prophet to convey the message. In the case of Ezekiel, the Lord gave him a vision, during that time he was in Babylon (Ezekiel 1:1). Shocked after seeing God's glory, in the form of a glowing halo and rainbow shining in the clouds (Ezekiel 1:28), the Lord referred to Ezekiel as th...e Son of Man (Ezekiel 2:1). While, God and Ezekiel were chatting, the Lord's words immediately brought him to his feet (Ezekiel 2:2) ...

Ezekiel's mission was to go to Israel and prophesize to a rebellious nation (Ezekiel 2:3). Keep in mind, that God equips a person before He sends them any where. Just like Ezekiel had to deal with stubborn people, God still wanted the nation of Israel to know that among them was a prophet anyway (Ezekiel 2:5) ...

Yes, the Lord gave you a job, an apartment or allowed you to be accepted to a creditable school; however your not happy and sometimes you still feel as if your alone. However, don't turn your back on God; instead, follow in Ezekiel's footsteps, fill yourself with bible knowledge (Ezekiel 2:8) and what your digesting will taste just like honey (Ezekiel 3:3). At the end, you'll see that the Lord's words, together with your wholesome testimony, will touch someone's heart and as a result, this is what's going to happen at the end ...
