In Ezekiel 21 - 22, words concerning God’s holy judgment against sin are awesome. He does not take sin lightly. He takes sin very seriously. As we realize the seriousness with which He looks upon sin, we are called to repentance. We are called to return to the Lord, in sincerity and truth.
Samaria and Jerusalem behaved
like prostitutes. In graphic language, the sin of turning from the Lord
is compared to sexual immorality. Why does God expose their sin with
such plainness of speech? He wants to show them the full extent of their
rebellion, so that they may see the folly of continuing in sin and may
be moved to return to the Lord - “Then they will know that I am the
Lord” (Ezekiel 23:49).
