A Study Index of Ezekiel

Nobody seems to understand the various symbols and riddles in this book of Ezekiel to put all the puzzles into a cohesive and coherent picture. The Jews couldn’t understand what or how the house of Israel could have any relevance since the days they went into exile; Christians misled themselves that they have already replaced the Israelites and God’s graceful promises of eternity are now theirs!

So none got it right. In the Study, we’ll find that Ezekiel’s prophecy was meant not to be fulfilled during his time; its timing was a great distance into the future (Ezekiel 12:27), into our time and the message is primarily for the United States and secondarily its European allies.
