My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Ezekiel 2

Mmmm... Scrollicious

God told him to stand, so the Spirit lifted him up. God sent him to stubborn Israel. They may or may not listen, but Ezekiel will be a prophet to them. He was not to fear, and was told to eat a scroll of laments.

Key verse:
9. On both sides of it were written words of lament and mourning and woe.

My thoughts:
It appears that by eating the scroll, Ezekiel is being given the words to speak to Israel, and they aren't happy words.

Most of the prophets have a very definite call from God, and Ezekiel is no exception.
