TO READ: Ezekiel 2:1-10
“Son of man,” he said, “I am sending you to the nation of Israel, a nation that is rebelling against me. Their ancestors have rebelled against me from the beginning, and they are still in revolt to this very day.” Ezekiel 2:3
Mission: Impossible holds a special place in the annals of television drama.Mysterious assignments were handed out at the beginning of each program, and that which was billed as impossible became possible, however improbable, before the weekly installment ended.
Ezekiel’s assignment came to him in a much more dramatic fashion than the way Mission: Impossible’s operators received theirs. He was given a vision of God’s glory that was so overwhelming that he “fell face down in the dust” (Ezek. 1:28). In this undignified but perfectly understandable position, Ezekiel was ideally situated to hear from the Lord. It was there, in the posture of awestruck submission, that he was told, “Stand up, son of man. . . . I want to speak with you” (2:1). The voice, of course, was the voice of God. This was no ordinary voice, and the words spoken were no ordinary words. These words contained the very power necessary for obedience to them. Ezekiel testified, “The Spirit came into me as he spoke and set me on my feet” (2:2).
Men today rarely find themselves flat on their faces in reaction to hearing the voice of God. But they do have available to them the written word of God, which, when read, marked, learned, and inwardly digested, not only commands but empowers for obedience. The word heeded releases the power needed.
