Pamphlet #1153 Ezek kc 54

"Rabbits and her Ishtar eggs"
A special Easter time question for all Christians.

Why did God say to Ezekiel,
"Son of man, set thy face against Zidon"

Ezekiel 28:21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,

Why was Ezekiel to set his face "against" Zidon?

In other words,
why was God angry with this city?

Zidon comes from the root word "Zud"
which means "to fish" and so Zidon was famous for its fisheries.

The problem is that Zidon also "fished" for the souls of men
and used the bait of intoxicating "religion" to "ensnare"
the children of Israel into idolatry.

Do you know what her biggest contribution was to mankind?

It is from Zidon that the sex goddess Ashtoreth,
also known as Ishtar and Easter,
has come to infect Christianity.

Is your church polluted with her symbols of sex and fertility,
her "quick like a bunny" rabbits and her Ishtar eggs?

God specifically asked you the question in chapter 20
and He WILL REQUIRE that you answer it.

Claiming you didn't "hear" Him ask you
won't be an excuse when you stand before Him,
for there is no shortage of Bibles in our land,
only a shortage of those who will read it
and take the time to understand it.

As a reminder, here was the question:

Ezekiel 20:30 Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye whoredom after their abominations?
This is real simple.

Your fathers started the "Easter thing" among our people
(this is just one example of the many traditions they started).

Do you continue in their whoredoms or not?

Yes, I keep Easter ____   No, I do not ____.

Here is the record of our fathers seeking and serving the goddess of Zidon.

1 Kings 11:5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.

Judges 10:6 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the LORD, and served not him.

How does one who goes to church every week
and who does good deeds for mankind forsake the LORD,
and not serve Him?

By not studying and keeping His Word.
If you don't know what He wants you to do
then how can you serve Him?

You can't.

Perhaps you better begin finding and answering His questions.
