Ezekiel had a major announcement to give to the people of God. Said Ezekiel, God told me that He takes a great deal of enjoyment in punishing those who do what He demands them to do. Therefore God says turn against me so that you might live. Ezekiel 18:32.
Seems odd that we as Christians portray the Most High and righteous King of the universe in this light does it not. Something totally against His character. Yet this is exactly what we are doing when we say to the world: God says turn to me and I will give you life everlasting but make sure that you turn away from the Ten Commandments for to keep them is certain death. God has done away with them and to walk in the law of heaven is to turn your back on God.
