Ezekiel Chapter Four, Witness Without Words
In our study of Ezekiel chapter four, we see how God uses the actions of the prophet to warn His people of the coming destruction of the city of Jerusalem. In chapter three, we saw God cause the prophet to be unable to speak with his mouth but he is going to act out the coming judgment as a warning. There were false prophets going around telling God's people that everything was going to be fine and that they were going to have peace and prosperity. In this setting, Ezekiel is called to tell the people the truth but he is told to do it in an unusual way.
