Today we read the twelfth chapter of the letter to the Hebrews and one chapter of Ezekiel.
Hebrews 12. Let us fix our eyes to Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. This and four other “let us” in the book of Hebrews bring us to a total of twelve, all intended to teach us how to live and bring us closer to Jesus and in so doing we get disciplined by God for our benefit. But it also comes with the fifth and final warning to us: “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven”
Ezekiel 14. Idolatry was to be punished, judgment on the Israelis’ unfaithfulness was inescapable.
