Prescription for end of days: living in an environment of complete apostasy…

It is written in Eze 18:4-9, “(4) Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. (5) But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, (6) and hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbor's wife, neither hath come near to a woman in her impurity, (7) and hath not wronged any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath taken nought by robbery, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; (8) he that hath not given forth upon interest, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true justice between man and man, (9) hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept mine ordinances, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord Jehovah.” ASV

In some of the worst of times, these words came to the prophet Ezekiel of how a man could survive when Israel as a whole nation, was taken captive and introduced to foreign or false gods in a land that was giving over to rebellion and idolatry, a time of complete apostasy. A time where God let His enemies' rule correct His so-called children by taking them captive, God said this:

If a man behaves this way, he will live:

Just defined: Just (as in treating people fairly), righteous, or lawful.

1. He has not participated in idolatry by eating their foods offered to their gods or joined in their celebrations to their gods.

2. He has not participated in idolatry by “wishing” or looking at their idols for better

3. He as not defiled his neighbor’s wife, but been faithful.

4. He has not had sex while his wife is menstruating.

5. He has not wronged any but has kept his part of the deal. A man of his word.

6. He has not robbed anyone.

7. He has fed the hungry.

8. He clothed the naked.

9. He did not profit by a loan by interest or material gain, due to someone else’s misfortune.

10. He learns not to sin against God, does not participate in sin with others.

11. He has treating people justly among other men in matters of dispute or arguments.

12. He has walked in my statues and ordinances (law of God), in our time: the New Testament (Covenant or agreement), to deal with others in truth.

The man in the midst of idolatry and rebellion, who does these things will live.

This was the prescription in one of the worse of moral declines of society. Go and DO likewise in the name of Jesus of Nazareth.

Father help us survive and be faithful unto the end of the Age, and we are grateful of your promise in Your Son, He will be with us unto the end of the age and the gates of hell will not prevail against His church, please change your mind and grant us repentance and renew our minds here in America, instead of giving us over to a reprobate mind, and we beg for redemption, reconciliation, salvation, and adoption, please remove anything that hinders our salvation, we renounce satan and anything that is not Jesus, and ask You to meet our soul’s deepest need for Your own name sake, so we can remain faithful and be saved, in Jesus of Nazareth’s name amen.

Please ask Jesus of Nazareth to confirm this truth to you and please comment and direct questions below:
