I Fell on my Face – The Remnant Shall be Saved – Ezekiel Chapter 5


A few years ago, I did a detailed study in the book of Ezekiel. I’m going to be posting the prophetic insights from each chapter over the next little bit. If you want the full teaching, it’s available on my YouTube channel at this link:



👉🏼 Question: Amidst the coming darkness, do we trust God’s goodness and power to save?

1. Repentance from idolatry is key for the Church.


There is no way to get around this. The Church NEEDS to repent of idolatry. If we want to remain part of the remnant that shall be saved from the trouble to come, we must repent of our idolatry first individually and then corporately.

2. God is still executing judgement on the earth today.


God is love but he also loves us by enacting judgement. His judgement is inextricably linked to his love. God is good and everything he does is good–including his judgement.
“The Lord is just in all his actions, and exhibits love in all he does. The Lord is near all who cry out to him, all who cry out to him sincerely. He satisfies the desire of his loyal followers; he hears their cry for help and delivers them.”
Psalms 145:17-19 NET‬
There is false teaching in the Church today that because God poured out his wrath on Jesus, those in Christ are no longer under judgement. This is a misunderstanding and a conflation of two distinct terms–namely, wrath and judgement. Judgement is a measurement. It could be favourable or not so favourable. It is a neutral term and is not at all associated with an ‘angry’ God ‘punishing’ his kids. We need to see judgement through the lens of love and correction.

3. Judgement starts in the house of God.


This is very much the season the Church has been walking through the past 4 years. This year, it has intensified. So much is being exposed. Healing and restoration is being poured out as well.
No one gets away with anything. We will pay for our unrepentant deeds of the flesh either now or in the life which is to come. It’s God’s mercy and grace to judge us now and not in the hereafter. Think of it as formative (rather than summative) feedback if you will.
“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”
‭1 Peter 4:17 NKJV‬
Judgement must fall on the house of God first before it falls on our nations. It’s truly time to fall on our faces and be restored to the fear of the Lord. As in Ezekiel’s time, the judgement fell on Jerusalem first and then the surrounding nations.

4. There is always a promise for the remnant.


But what is the promise?
The remnant SHALL be saved! How? By staying in that place of repentance before the Lord. God’s grace and mercy triumphs judgement every time.
“For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”
James 2:13 NKJV‬
