Through the Bible (Ezekiel 37) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

As the Jews are on the brink of being scattered worldwide, Ezekiel gives a prophecy concerning the future time when they would be regathered in the land and then joined to Jesus during the coming Millennial Kingdom. As we see the dry bones connect and the branches graft together in Ezekiel 37, we see Israel coming to life again in prophecy already fulfilled and still to happen.

Broken? I Can Fix That! by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

As humans, we can find an awful lot of ways to really mess up our lives - yet there is hope of restoration for even the most broken person. As we study how God will restore the Jews in Ezekiel 36:16-38, we see how He also wants to do the same for us and how we can experience this.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 33-36:15) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

The word of warning for the people to repent is the same alarm we should sound today. As we study Ezekiel 33-36:15, we learn how we can equip ourselves to be these warning watchmen by following good shepherds, listening to God's Word, and doing what it says.

Doers of the Word by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

While they had the external appearance of listening, the people in Ezekiel 33:31 were actually ignoring the Word of God and not heeding what it said at all. Unfortunately, many people today suffer from the same hearing but not doing problem, and we must recognize why this is dangerous and what we can do to remedy it.

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

A Bible teaching titled “Through the Bible (Ezekiel 28:20-32:32)” from Ezekiel 28:20-32:32 by Brett Meador.

Satan’s Doom by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel 28:1-19 gives an account of Satan, and it is nothing like the misinformed cartoonish or even grotesque images we typically see portrayed in pop culture. As we break down this description, we see Satan for who he actually is, what he has done and is doing now, and what will ultimately become of him in the Last Days.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 24-27) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel was not only called to prophesy about the dreadful fate of Israel but also to declare what would happen to the surrounding nations because of their behavior. As he continues to speak the Word of the Lord through prophecies and dramatic illustrations in Ezekiel 24-27, we also see him faced with what may be his most difficult object lesson yet.

A Flat Tyre by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel 26 briefly turns aside from describing the coming destruction of Jerusalem to focus on the destruction of Tyre and the prophetic details surrounding their downfall. As we examine this prophecy, we see how it was perfectly fulfilled throughout history - once again proving the Bible is God’s perfect, inspired, and inerrant Word.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 21-23) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Of all the people who should have known better to not mess around with sin, it should have been the Israelites. As we read about their horrific sinful behavior and coming judgment in Ezekie

Stand in the Gap by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

As they sat on the brink of severe punishment, God sought someone to “stand in the gap” for Israel that He might not destroy them – but He found no one. As we study Ezekiel 22:23-31, we see what God was looking for, examples of people who filled this role elsewhere in the Bible, learn how we can be those who intercede, and what will manifest in our lives if we do so.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 19-20) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

The people of Israel have vacillated between following God and their pagan idols since they departed Egypt, and God has finally given them over to their sin and subsequent destruction. But as we study their course in Ezekiel 19-20, we learn that God’s ultimate plan is always to bring redemption and that He is merciful even to the worst sinners.

Regathering of Israel by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

After being scattered worldwide, the Jews are now regathering in Israel – just like the Lord promised in Ezekiel 20:23, 33-37. As we study how this prophecy has been fulfilled, is currently being fulfilled, and will be fulfilled in the future, we see why it is so important and how it figures into the End Times.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 17-18) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel shares a parable and refutes a proverb in Ezekiel 17-18 to show the people in Jerusalem what will happen with the coming Babylonians and why they will be held accountable for their own sins. As we study how he implores them to instead turn from their sin and live, we gather insight into repentance, righteousness through Jesus Christ, and restoration.

Repent! by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Tapping into one of the major themes of the Bible, Ezekiel 18:30-32 implores the people of Jerusalem to repent – that is turn away from their sins - so that they may live and not fall into ruin. As we look into the topic of repentance, we see what it means to cast away our sin and what it should look like in our lives when we do.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 14-16) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel 14-16 paints a grim picture of how despite being given every opportunity to be blessed by God, the Jews reject Him in favor of idolatry and set themselves up to incur His wrath. As we study, may we learn from their example and instead be those who humble ourselves, repent from our sins and turn to God for our salvation.

Abide in the Vine by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Throughout Scripture we see the Lord using imagery of a vine to typify His relationship with His people. Ezekiel 15 contains one of these instances and as we study, we learn why this illustration is so powerful, what it means for us today and what our lives should look like as a result.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 12-13) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel was speaking the Word of the Lord and yet the people chose to straight-up ignore him, listen to false prophets instead, or scoff at what he was saying. As we study Ezekiel 12-13, may we be those who heed the Word and take prophecy seriously - especially in the days we live.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 8-11) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel receives a vision in Ezekiel 8-11 concerning the judgment that has come upon the people for rejecting God and continually living in sin. Yet even as we watch God’s glory depart in what is perhaps one of the most gut-wrenching passages in the Bible, we see how God will never truly forsake His people and that He has a plan for their future still.

The Battle for the Brain by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

God gives Ezekiel a glimpse inside the minds of the leading elders in Ezekiel 8:7-12, and the thoughts he sees in their heads are nothing short of abominable. And we cannot claim that our thoughts are any better today. However, we can arm ourselves with tools that will help us combat our wicked thoughts and steer our minds to how God would have us to think.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 4-7) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

God gave Ezekiel some very specific – and somewhat questionable – scenarios to show the people what they could expect to happen as the Babylonians closed in, as they are killed or carted off into captivity, and then what would become of them after these things. As we look at these object lessons in Ezekiel 4-7, we see God’s desire for repentance, the certainty of His wrath, and most importantly, His grace and mercy in offering salvation to all who will call upon the name of Jesus.

The Proof is in the Prophecy by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel puts on a strange demonstration to show the Jews how long they will be cursed and driven from their land. As we do the math behind his illustration in Ezekiel 4:3-6, we see the Bible’s perfect predictability regarding past events and how they pertain to things yet to come.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 2:8-3:27) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel had a clear calling on his life to minister to the Jews in Babylonian exile, but God had to equip him first. As we study his preparation in Ezekiel 2:8-3:27, we see the importance of knowing the Word, how the Holy Spirit works in our lives, and how our words should always reflect God’s truth and love.

Through the Bible (Ezekiel 1-2) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Ezekiel has a remarkable -albeit somewhat confusing - vision of God that he describes in fascinating detail. As we dive into his account of the imagery, we begin to make sense of what he saw and how it paints a beautiful picture of God’s glory and His plan for humanity.

Palm Sunday 2021 by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

If you were in charge of planning Jesus’ grand entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, how would you do it? Riding in on a lowly donkey would probably be low on your list. But as we examine why God chose this particular mode of transportation, we see perfect reasons that fulfill prophecy, show us God’s character, and reveal the things He uses to accomplish His purpose.

Through the Bible (Lamentations 3-5) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

If the people had only listened to Jeremiah’s heartfelt pleadings, they would have understood that their unrepentant continual sin would bring about God’s wrath. And, as we learn in Lamentations 3-5, they could have found compassion and mercy if that they just turned to God with repentant hearts and followed His ways.

Dealing with Depression by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

As he looks at the state of his surroundings, Jeremiah falls into a deep depression and pens his sorrowful thoughts on the situation. Fortunately, even though things looked bleak, Jeremiah also knew the best remedy to lift him from this saddened state and he shares the antidote against depression with us in Lamentations 3:21-24.

Through the Bible (Lamentations 1-2) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

God very specifically warned Israel time after time, for years and years, of the horrific calamity that would befall them if they failed to obey His Word - and it happened exactly how He said it would. As we study Jeremiah’s sorrowful recap of the situation in Lamentations 1-2, may we heed the Lord’s warning for us to repent before it is too late as well.

The Problem with Sin by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Jeremiah puts pen to paper in Lamentations 1:5-11 to express his sadness over the shocking and sorrowful fall of Jerusalem because of their sins. As we study the repercussions of their actions, we learn how our sin will destroy us in a very similar manner, but also that we can find forgiveness and mercy through Jesus Christ.

Through the Bible (Jeremiah 50:35-52:34) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

The Babylonians have inflicted great pain upon the Jews and left Jerusalem in a state of destruction and desolation. But Jeremiah 50:35-52:34 foretells that their reign of terror won’t last and their fall will come soon enough - bringing severe punishment upon them for their pride and sinfulness.

Jehoia-who? by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Jeremiah tacks on a interesting little addendum about the unexpected fate of Jehoiachin in Jeremiah 52:31-34. But why should we even care to hear about what happened to this seemingly insignificant minor character? It turns out we have more in common with Jehoiachin than we may realize.

Through the Bible (Jeremiah 49:1-50:34) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Jeremiah continues to prophesy about the nations surrounding Israel and sets them up as examples of what not to do. As we study their bad behavior and subsequent punishment in Jeremiah 49:1-50:34, may we guard our hearts against pride, not trust in our material wealth or power, and always be gracious and loving towards the people God has placed in our lives.

The Shepherd by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

God admonishes His people in Jeremiah 50:6 by calling them lost sheep, with poor shepherds, who follow the wrong paths straight to their demise. But this personification isn’t just a passing analogy as the Bible is rife with imagery of the Good Shepherd – Jesus Christ – who lays down His life so that His sheep may be forgiven and free.

Through the Bible (Jeremiah 46-48) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Jeremiah has a prophetic word from the Lord for the nations surrounding Israel that not only alludes to their more immediate fate but has far-reaching future implications in the Last Days. As as we study Jeremiah 46-48, we see why these things are happening and can learn from their mistakes to ensure we don’t become contaminated, prideful against God, and caught up in worshiping worthless and fleeting things.

Through the Bible (Jeremiah 44-45) by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Thinking they will be safe and secure there, a remnant of Jews flee to Egypt only to find that they cannot outrun or hide from God’s punishment for their wickedness. As we study Jeremiah 44-45, we see why this calamity has come upon them, how their own "logic" only makes the situation far worse and what their fate will be in Egypt because of these things.

Down to Egypt by Brett Meador

por Athey Creek Christian Fellowship

Their town is in tatters, most of the people have been carted off to Babylon or killed, and a general gloom hangs over the remnant remaining in Jerusalem in Jeremiah 42-43. As they weigh their future options, they fall prey to letting their fear drive their decisions, which overwhelms their faith and leads them into further trouble.
