YAH Gives Zeke A Message For Bull-Head Israel
1 Spiritual Vision Then, ๐Ÿ˜‡, [YAH] says to me, โ€œโ€˜Son of Adam,โ€™ stand on your feet. Then I'll speak to you.โ€
2 YAH's Spirit (Holy Spirit) As [YAH] speaks to me, [YAH's] spirit enters me, ๐Ÿ˜‡! It sets me on my feet. I hear [YAH] speak to me.
3 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion *[YAH] says to me, โ€œโ€˜Son of Adam,โ€™ I send you to [condemn] the brats of Israel. [Their] mutinous nation [keeps on] rebelling against me. They and their fore-fathers have [consistently] betrayed me, right to this very day.
4 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion [The Jews] are impudent, stiff hearted spoiled-kids. I'm sending you to [warn] them. Speak my words [in the name-authority] of [Me,] Adonai YHVH.
5 Refusal To Learn / Intentional Ignorance The [Israelites are] a rebellious gaggle. [Some] may listen. [Most will] ignore you. But they'll [all eventually] realize that [you're] a prophet in their midst.
6 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion So you, son of Adam, never be afraid of the [fake Judeo-Christians]. Never quake at their words, even when [their] โ€˜briersโ€™ and โ€˜thornsโ€™ surround you. You live among โ€˜scorpions.โ€™ Never fear their talk, ๐Ÿ˜‡. Don't get discouraged by their [evil ugly] looks, no matter how rebellious [they grow].
7 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion *You'll speak my words to the [phony Judeo-Christians], whether they listen, or whether they [ignore you, which they will, ๐Ÿ˜‡,] because they're extremely treacherous.
8 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion *But you, son of Adam, hear what I say to you: Don't be rebellious like that mutinous gaggle [of counterfeit โ€˜believersโ€™]. Open your mouth. Eat what I give you.โ€
9 Yah's Word *I look, ๐Ÿ˜‡. Suddenly I see [YAH] send a [mysterious spirit-]hand. [It floats in a vapor-cloud] toward me. I see that the hand holds a scroll.
10 Yah's Word [The paranormal hand] spreads [out the scroll] before me. It's written inside and out, ๐Ÿ˜‡: a doom-tale of death-dirges, mourning and wailing.
