Ezekial 13

14 I will break down your wall right to its foundation, and when it falls, it will crush you. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

 

The core paused at that one scripture and looked up to her surroundings. All those walls around her, past the guards, that were falling down were the work of the Lord. This one scripture described what he was doing in her life, despite it being written for something else. Out of curiosity she went back to where it was first mentioned, verse 10.

 

10 “This will happen because these evil prophets deceive my people by saying, ‘All is peaceful’ when there is no peace at all! It’s as if the people have built a flimsy wall, and these prophets are trying to reinforce it by covering it with whitewash!

 

11 Tell these whitewashers that their wall will soon fall down. A heavy rainstorm will undermine it; great hailstones and mighty winds will knock it down.

 

12 And when the wall falls, the people will cry out, ‘What happened to your whitewash?’

 

She didn’t know what the word “whitewash” meant so she looked it up for an understanding. Whitewash to cover up or gloss over the faults or errors of; absolve from blame. To her, this was her life in a nutshell; at least the newly highlighted parts. She agreed to the wall for her defense, the builder came in to assemble it, the guards “whitewashed” it, and now the Lord was come to destroy it.

 

Each guard paused, as is petrified, to that one set of scriptures. Fear fell on their faces, even fear itself looked scared. There was one scripture that talked about even the devils believed and trembled. She kept reading aloud to herself and to them.

 

Ezekial 34

31 You are my flock, the sheep of my pasture. You are my people, and I am your God. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”

 

Ezekial 38

23 In this way, I will show my greatness and holiness, and I will make myself known to all the nations of the world. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

 

Ezekial 39

7  “In this way, I will make known my holy name among my people of Israel. I will not let anyone bring shame on it. And the nations, too, will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.

 

Malachi 1

14 Cursed is the cheat who promises to give a fine ram from his flock but then sacrifices a defective one to the Lord. For I am a great king,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “and my name is feared among the nations!

 

Malachi 3

6 “I am the Lord, and I do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed.
