SERMON SERIES: The Power of Dreams and Visions
SCRIPTURE LESSON
Ezekiel 8:7-18
7 And he brought me to the entrance of the court; I looked, and there was a hole in
the wall. 8 Then he said to me, "Mortal, dig through the wall"; and when I dug
through the wall, there was an entrance. 9 He said to me, "Go in, and see the vile
abominations that they are committing here." 10 So I went in and looked; there,
portrayed on the wall all around, were all kinds of creeping things, and loathsome
animals, and all the idols of the house of Israel. 11 Before them stood seventy of
the elders of the house of Israel, with Jaazaniah son of Shaphan standing among
them. Each had his censer in his hand, and the fragrant cloud of incense was ascending. 12 Then he said to me, "Mortal, have you seen what the elders of the
house of Israel are doing in the dark, each in his room of images? For they say,
"The Lord does not see us, the Lord has forsaken the land.' " 13 He said also to
me, "You will see still greater abominations that they are committing." 14 Then he
brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the Lord; women were
sitting there weeping for Tammuz. 15 Then he said to me, "Have you seen this, O
mortal? You will see still greater abominations than these."
