Today, back to normal. We read the eleventh chapter of the letter to the Hebrews and one chapter of Ezekiel.
Hebrews 11 is called “the great faith chapter”. “Without faith it is impossible to please God“. In the faith hall of fame the people recorded are in order, Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses’ parents, Moses, the people crossing the Red Sea, the fall of the walls of Jericho and the innkeeper Rahab. Then the author ran out of time to mention Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets. “These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.”
Ezekiel 13 proclaims woe to the false prophets.
