    Is this( Ezekiel 23) word of God?
  • Luke - In Reply on Ezekiel 23 - 2 years ago
    The King James Bible is God's preserved word in the English language. So the whole bible is God's words. The bible is a difficult book. Every verse of scripture has 3 applications, 1) Historical, 2) Inspirational, 3) Doctrinal. Chapter 23 is an allegory of Jeursalem's and Samaria's unfaithfulness.

    Book of John, Jesus is the Light

    1 In the beginning was the WORD, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2 The same was in the beginning with God.

    3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

    5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (People not born again yet)

    I believe you are asking if this is the same WORD in John 1:19Logos) ? who became flesh? If you notice the W in Joh. 1:1 is capitalized giving credence that it indeed is JESUS. The word (Heb. dabar) in Ezekiel is not; so if your question is are the same then no.

    Yes Mohammad, Ezekiel chapter 23 is the Word of God. I realize that it comes to us as an awful picture of wickedness but it was a message that God gave to His prophet Ezekiel to declare.

    I can't give you a full commentary of this chapter, but to state, that it is an allegory (an allegory is when particular names are given, but are representative of the actual people & the actual message which it conveys). This chapter is a warning to two 'sisters' (Samaria, representing the Northern Kingdom: Israel) and Jerusalem (representing the Southern Kingdom: Judah).

    Verses 1-10: describe the unfaithfulness & punishment of Aholah (Samaria). Verses 11-21: the unfaithfulness of Aholibah (Jerusalem). Verses 22-35: Jerusalem's punishment. And verses 36-49: also describe the united punishment of the two sisters (Samaria & Jerusalem). I hope this brief outline will help you understand the grievousness of their sins which demands punishment and NOT to read it as some ugly lewd description of human sensuality.
