I am reading through Ezekiel right now and got curious as to how many times it is written, “Know that I am the Lord”. It may be preceded by “They will”. . . Or “You will”. . . Or “The nations will”. . . Or “Israel will”. . .
63 times in Ezekiel out of 77 in the entire Bible.
God desires His creation to know Him. Why? So He can pour out blessings, the greatest of these being salvation so we can spend eternity with Him instead of eternity in Hell, separated from the One who created us to know Him.
“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me.
Isaiah 43:10 NASB
There is no other God. There is no other way. Eternity awaits those who seek eternal happiness, joy, peace, etc. found only through belief in Jesus Christ.
You need to know that one day you will bow and “know that I am the Lord” whether you choose to now in surrender and humbleness or later when you are judged and sentenced to eternal life in Hell. Remember, the choice is yours. You have no one to blame but yourself.
Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.’ ”
Isaiah 44:8 NASB
Who has performed and accomplished it, Calling forth the generations from the beginning? ‘I, the Lord, am the first, and with the last. I am He.’ ”
Isaiah 41:4 NASB
Pray: I confess that there is but one God, through whom I can be saved and I want to know that You are the Lord. Forgive me of my unbelief and living in sin. Help me to follow Your ways my Lord by seeking You continually through Your word, the Bible, and to seek a Bible believing church so I can know You more and grow in understanding and wisdom of Your ways. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
🌹I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance.
Isaiah 45:23 NASB
Continually Seeking Him,
