Here is more of the encouragement that God gave to Ezekiel as he was being sent to God's stubborn and rebellious people, which he was commanded to preach to, who would not hear Ezekiel's words from God.
Please note that the encouragement of Ezekiel 2:6, was not to the hard hearted people, but to Ezekiel (one man), as he walked in obedience to the Words of God!!!
As you can read below, there was also a warning to the one man, Ezekiel, if he did not obey God and warn God's people of the consequences of their sin and rebellion, as He commanded!!
Ezekiel 3:15-27 Then I came to the exiles at Tel-abib, those dwelling by the river Chebar. And I sat there where they were sitting. I also dwelt there seven days, being benumbed among them. 16 And it happened at the end of the seven days, even it happened that the Word of Jehovah came to me, saying,
17 Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. And hear the Word of My mouth, and warn them from Me. 18 In My saying to the wicked, Dying you shall die; and you do not warn him, and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, he, the wicked, shall die in his iniquity. But I will require his blood at your hand. 19 And you, because you have warned the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his way, he, the wicked, shall die in his iniquity. But you have delivered your soul.
20 And when the righteous turns from his righteousness and does injustice, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die. Since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered. But I will require his blood at your hand.
21 But you, because you warned him, the righteous, so that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, living he shall live because he is warned. And you have delivered your soul.
22 And the hand of Jehovah was on me there. And He said to me, Rise up, go forth into the plain, and I will speak with you there. 23 And I rose up and went forth into the plain. And, behold, there the glory of Jehovah was standing, like the glory which I saw by the river Chebar. And I fell on my face. 24 And the Spirit entered into me and stood me on my feet and spoke with me. And He said to me, Come, shut yourself within your house.
25 But you, son of man, behold, they shall put on you cords and shall bind you with them, and you shall not go out among them. 26 And I will make your tongue cling to your palate, and you shall be dumb. And there shall not be to them a reproving man. For they are a rebellious house. 27 But in My speaking with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, So says the Lord Jehovah. He who hears, let him hear; and he forbearing, let him forbear. For they are a rebellious house.
The word of encouragement should be that Jesus Christ died on a cross so that we might be "delivered" (the definition of saved) from the sin within us and the power of the sin be broken that we might be born again with Jesus' Spirit truly living within us, as well as living through us. We should be able to say, "If you have seen me you have seen Jesus".
The false word is that Jesus died to "cover" (not remove) our sin; past, present, and future. That there is nothing that can keep us from going to heaven. That we are still in bondage to walk in obedience to the feelings and senses of the body rather than free to walk moment by moment in obedience to the Holy Spirit; which we are offered by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, our "Deliverer"!! (The definition of Savior!)
It is truly sad how many ways the Bible can be twisted if we pick and choose what we read and do not know intimately the "Spirit" of the entire Word of God; even the entire message of each letter and gospel of the New Testament, rather than just little pieces that are used to create false teachings and doctrines.
May God open the ears and the eyes of the spiritually blind who truly want to know Him!! The only way that can happen is if you remove all the influences of the world that God hates and sit at the feet of Jesus and the Word of God, experiencing the influence of the Divine, the free gift of God, and how it changes everything that you once were into a new man that truly looks like Jesus. You are bond to be like the influences that you feed on!!
Amplified Bible James 4:4 You [are like] unfaithful wives [having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God]! Do you not know that being the world's friend is being God's enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God.
