These are Christians that He is talking about ! Because there name is already written in the book of life....If they are not Christians how is their name in the book?
Eze 8:1 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.
Ezekiel 9:1 He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.
Ezekiel 9:2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.
Ezekiel 9:3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side;
Ezekiel 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
Ezekiel 9:5And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:
Ezekiel 9:6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
Ezekiel 9:7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.
Ezekiel 9:8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem?
Ezekiel 9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.
Ezekiel 9:10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.
Ezekiel 9:11 And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.
Before the mark of the beast, the Lord God shall take and mark his people that are holy and just with the angel that has a writer ink horn....Notice the the number of days. (the sixth years, the sixth month, the Fifth day...), Right before before the mark of the beast 666.
*******Some Christiane do not want to know the truth because they believe they already know the whole truth. We as Christians got to be open-minded to what God is doing in our time. That is where the Jews fail. They could not see Christ even though they THOUGHT knew the bible and no one was going to change their mind. Talking to a woman pastor today that told me that no one died and when to hell and ever came back to life to tell what Hell is like. The ones who did are liars. I really believe that if Jesus came back again to walk on this earth today half the Christians would being yelling crucify him. SAD BUT THE TRUTH. The one scripture that has kept me and ask myself in most situations is ;Mat_12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
Mat_12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? ======For that reason Satan is not going to let you go to Hell and bring you back to life so you can tell people how terrible it is and direct them to heaven.......... Rick Haines
