7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and you shall [a]know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord.
8 Yet will I leave some of you alive. When you have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when you shall be scattered through the countries,
9 Then those of you who escape shall [earnestly] remember Me among the nations to which they shall be carried captive, how that I have been broken by their lewdness and have Myself broken their wanton heart which has departed from Me and blinded their eyes which turn after their idols wantonly; and they shall be loathsome in their own sight for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.
Ezekiel 6:7On the basis of the fact that God uses it more often than any other important word in the Bible, the word “Lord” becomes the most essential term in any language for the welfare of any person. It is not enough that one knows that God is God, and that He is, for only a fool would deny that (Ps. 53:1), but God demands of every person who is to be recognized by Him that he accepts Him as Lord of his life, his Sovereign Ruler, to Whom he yields implicit obedience. When Thomas was able to say of Jesus, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28), his doubts ceased to exist. Nothing short of that kind of expression of Christ’s lordship meets God’s demands. Watch for the word “Lord” in the Bible; it occurs around 5,000 times. Watch also for this phrase (“you shall know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord”) throughout the book of Ezekiel.
