Ezekiel 24:14 (HCSB)
14 I, Yahweh, have spoken. It is coming, and I will do it! I will not refrain, I will not show pity, and I will not relent. I will judge you according to your ways and deeds. This is the declaration of the Lord God.

I mean, that’s pretty sweet when God says, “Hey, I have spoken it. It shall come to pass. I will do it. I will not go back, neither will I change.” I mean, when God gets that direct, you can be sure that no doubt it will happen and indeed it did. Like today, we can be blessed in our obedience and punished when we disobey. Like any loving father would do with their child. Under the covenant Israel made with God at Mount Sinai, they would be blessed in their obedience and cursed in their disobedience. Their wicked ways and deeds would judge them. It’s amazing how, when we know we’re going to get in trouble for something we’re about to do, we do it anyway. You would think we would, at some point, learn how this all works. But our sinful nature can get the best of us. Thank goodness for salvation and the forgiveness of God.
