When We Know

“Then you will know that I am the LORD.” – Ezekiel 6:13 NASB

Describing events that would take place after His death, Jesus told His disciples, “I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens, you may believe” (John 14:29). He was demonstrating His foreknowledge and sovereignty, proving that His words were true and helping prepare them for the future.

This is a theme throughout many of God’s prophetic messages and is central to the ministry of Ezekiel. Repeatedly in the book of Ezekiel, God told him, “Then you will know.” When His people experienced judgment, they would know He was the Lord (Ezekiel 7:4). When God “set [His] face against them,” they would remember His warnings (Ezekiel 15:7).

Some doubted that Ezekiel was delivering God’s messages, but God confirmed He would do everything He said through this prophet (Ezekiel 24:24). God even decreed that the day would come when dry bones would come to life (Ezekiel 37). Many refused to accept this prophecy, but God said this would come true, so they would “know that I am the LORD” (Ezekiel 37:13-14).

Many people deny that the Bible is true and ridicule those who believe in God. Some conclude that those who know Him are naïve, that the Gospel is foolish.

Like Ezekiel, make sure you are confident in your relationship with God, that you know Jesus, and that He is your Lord. Commit your life to serving Him. Live so that the world may know.

Reflection Question: How do you answer people who don’t believe God’s Word is true?

Father, Your Word and Your promises are true. Help me live so others may know the truth of the Gospel. In Jesus’ name, amen.
