32-150x150 EZEKIEL, born  and raised in the land of Judah, was preparing to become a priest in God’s temple when the Babylonians attacked in 597 B.C. and carried him with 10,000 other captives (2 Kings 24).

Ezekiel condemns the sinful actions of seven nations. The people of these nations were saying that God was too weak to defend the city of Jerusalem. But God  was allowing His people to be defeated in order to punish them for their sins. These pagan nations, however, would face a similar fate.

After the fall of Jerusalem, Ezekiel delivered messages of future restoration and hope for the people. The nation  had to be cleansed through 70 years of captivity.
