The spiritual state of LORD's people and their dark deeds have reached an alarming proportion - they are rebellious and strongly oppose His Laws. LORD commissioned Ezekiel to be the man of this hour. LORD commanded Ezekiel that he would would go into such a hostile environment and say, “This is what the Sovereign LORD says” The consequences to the person of Ezekiel would be shunning, words of opposition, and looks that could kill.
Ezekiel 2:6 And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, though briers and thorns are all around you and you live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or be terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people. 7 You must speak My words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.LORD then handed him over a scroll, filled with words of lamentation.
