In case you’re wondering what I am going to preach on today it’s Ezekiel 16.

The Church is the Bride of Jesus – and Israel – and this only applies to Israel, DO NOT TAKE A PERSONAL APPLICATION TO THIS!!!!

Jerusalem’s Harlotry

15 “But you trusted in your own beauty, played the harlot because of your fame, and poured out your harlotry on everyone passing by who would have it. 16 You took some of your garments and adorned multicolored high places for yourself, and played the harlot on them. Such things should not happen, nor be. 17 You have also taken your beautiful jewelry from My gold and My silver, which I had given you, and made for yourself male images and played the harlot with them. 18 You took your embroidered garments and covered them, and you set My oil and My incense before them. 19 Also My food which I gave you—the pastry of fine flour, oil, and honey which I fed you—you set it before them as sweet incense; and so it was,” says the Lord God.

20 “Moreover you took your sons and your daughters, whom you bore to Me, and these you sacrificed to them to be devoured. Were your acts of harlotry a small matter, 21 that you have slain My children and offered them up to them by causing them to pass through the fire? 22 And in all your abominations and acts of harlotry you did not remember the days of your youth, when you were naked and bare, struggling in your blood.

23 “Then it was so, after all your wickedness—‘Woe, woe to you!’ says the Lord God— 24 that you also built for yourself a shrine, and made a high place for yourself in every street. 25 You built your high places at the head of every road, and made your beauty to be abhorred. You offered yourself to everyone who passed by, and multiplied your acts of harlotry. 26 You also committed harlotry with the Egyptians, your very fleshly neighbors, and increased your acts of harlotry to provoke Me to anger.

27 “Behold, therefore, I stretched out My hand against you, diminished your allotment, and gave you up to the will of those who hate you, the daughters of the Philistines, who were ashamed of your lewd behavior. 28 You also played the harlot with the Assyrians, because you were insatiable; indeed you played the harlot with them and still were not satisfied. 29 Moreover you multiplied your acts of harlotry as far as the land of the trader, Chaldea; and even then you were not satisfied.

30 “How degenerate is your heart!” says the Lord God, “seeing you do all these things, the deeds of a brazen harlot.

The reason why God was so mad at Israel was because she prostituted herself instead of seeking after her husband, the LORD JEHOVAH!!!

Man, this is the same guy that makes the volcano’s errupt and they are seeking after other lovers, what a shame!!!!  What a shame, what a shame.

Israel had her true love in the Lord Jesus Christ, so when God was writing this book of Ezekiel, He was stepping forward into time, and seeing His Son on the Cross, and remembering the pain associated with His Son being on the Cross, so then He stepped back into the past and consumed His wrath upon them.  He was so Jealous, and Jesus was so hurt, and then Jesus in the book of Revelation 2 goes into the future about the Church of Ephesus, and recalls Himself being crucified, and then goes to Ezekiel 16, and says –

My Jerusalem – my one and only Jerusalem – My bride my one and only bride the Church, how can you forget me, the One who loves you.  Then it is like Isaiah 54.  For this is like the waters of Noah to Me;
For as I have sworn
That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth,
So have I sworn
That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.
10 For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

Remember the movie Pretty Woman, with Julia Roberts?  Well this is what this is like.  In the movie, Julia Roberts is a prositute who goes after a rich man, but in this context, the prostitute, already had a husband who she loved, and she really loved and was pretty much just selling herself short, she was beautiful, but she left him for another man, and He hated it, – “Jesus was asking His Father?”  Why doesn’t she love me?  Why doesn’t she love me?  Why doesn’t she love me?  So then the Father had to answer back in Ezekiel 16 and say that it is because they have left their true love.

Jerusalem’s Adultery

31 “You erected your shrine at the head of every road, and built your high place in every street. Yet you were not like a harlot, because you scorned payment. 32 You are an adulterous wife, who takes strangers instead of her husband. 33 Men make payment to all harlots, but you made your payments to all your lovers, and hired them to come to you from all around for your harlotry. 34 You are the opposite of other women in your harlotry, because no one solicited you to be a harlot. In that you gave payment but no payment was given you, therefore you are the opposite.”

The Bride is going to be exact like her mother.  It even says so in verse 44.

But let me tell you why He’s saying all this.  He won’t let it go that far, but you know when we all get mad, we say things we don’t mean, and we get really furious and we yell and scream, imagine if a husband who loves his wife caught him cheating on her with another man, and this man was his worst enemy.  Wouldn’t he be furious?  He would absolutely be furious!!!  He would be so mad, that He would yell and say – imagine this scenario –

He’s got sweat coming out of his brow, and he’s got liquid coming out of his poors, and his face is red and he feels like he’s going to erupt and with his firm strong hands with abrupt forceful movement yanked out the precious strong pearls delicately thrown around the neck.  He had Jealous fury like a husband  that had been wronged.  His eyes were a flame with passion like a Lamb that is roasting on the fire, and the heat bubbled like a volcano, and was fierce as an earthquake, He was in love with this woman, and she cheated on him and he still managed  to forgive her.  Filled with the dynamic forces of contempt and love waging war at the same time, burning and yearning to be with her, yet despising her because she left him alone.  She left him alone.  He wanted to leave her to the very ones for her filthiness, and the same time, this was his bride, a bride whose beautiful gown, he would like to see drenched in blood, but at the same time, would like to see renewed much like Jerry MacGuire, and then there comes the song – “She’ll lead you down that path, she’ll lead you down that road, that secret garden….don’t think twice.”  So then He forgives and forgets.  He rushes by her side in an embrace, and kisses her and takes her into the Garden in Song of Solomon, and makes sweet love to her in the bedchamber of heaven.

Jerusalem’s Lovers Will Abuse Her

35 ‘Now then, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord! 36 Thus says the Lord God: “Because your filthiness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotry with your lovers, and with all your abominable idols, and because of the blood of your children which you gave to them, 37 surely, therefore, I will gather all your lovers with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved, and all those you hated; I will gather them from all around against you and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness. 38 And I will judge you as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged; I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy. 39 I will also give you into their hand, and they shall throw down your shrines and break down your high places. They shall also strip you of your clothes, take your beautiful jewelry, and leave you naked and bare.

40 “They shall also bring up an assembly against you, and they shall stone you with stones and thrust you through with their swords. 41 They shall burn your houses with fire, and execute judgments on you in the sight of many women; and I will make you cease playing the harlot, and you shall no longer hire lovers. 42 So I will lay to rest My fury toward you, and My jealousy shall depart from you. I will be quiet, and be angry no more. 43 Because you did not remember the days of your youth, but agitated Me[a] with all these things, surely I will also recompense your deeds on your own head,” says the Lord God. “And you shall not commit lewdness in addition to all your abominations.

Imagine this poor woman, who because of her naivity, and her deceptive heart, who took after so many lovers because of her dicotomy of personality, where her brain just is an intense momentum of ups and downs and very much like a rollar coaster, that doesn’t go upside down, she takes this guy for a spin.  She’s the typical slut, so what can He do for her?  But she doesn’t want to be a slut anymore?  She doesn’t want to be the one in the spotlight anymore, like Britney Spears’ “Lucky” song.  She wants to be be a princess now, and a queen, like Danielle DeBarberac in Ever After Cinderella Story, but now she wants to be loved.  He was so mad that He said, they would throw up stones and abuse her, it would take more than the Knights of the Round Table, to go and rescue this princess.  It would take a King and the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Who is both Prince and hero over the wrath of a God who King Triton (The Little Mermaid) is only a shadow of.   Types and shadows – Types and shadows are things that resemble Christ.  A type is something like a noun, and a shadow is like an analogy or comparison.

Will this hero get His bride in the end?  To know that you have to say the sinner’s prayer:

Heavenly Father:

I know I am a sinner, I want to know You more and I want to learn more about You and Your Son, teach me about your Son Jesus Christ because He seems like an awesome person, and I want to get to know this person, and I have a feeling we can be really cool buds.  I want to get to know a guy who’s been through the school of hard knocks like me like that.

In Jesus Mighty name I pray,

Amen
