FRIDAY, JULY 29
Scripture: Ezekiel 13:6-13
God was mad at the prophets because they did not build a wall that would stand in judgment! They built a wall and plastered it with untempered mortar or whitewash. The wall could not stand. God expects us to build people into a wall that can stand in a day of judgment. A wall that stands is a wall of faith, a wall of integrity and a wall of obedience. A wall that stands is one of faith in the Word built on God for Who He really is. The real God inspires a thread of the fear of the Lord. He is the Judge of all the earth. Our breath is in His Hands and because of that, we cannot get away with what the world does. We cannot live in sin. Tempered mortar is a mortar of righteousness and holiness. Righteousness and holiness are the only things that can build tempered mortar that will grow people to the place they can stand in the last days. We have to live according to God’s Word and have to be obedient to the Spirit. We have to bow to the King and listen to the Spirit. Today’s prophets have not built a wall that can withstand attack and that has to change now.
