Stand In The Gap
Scripture: Ezekiel Denomination: Church Of God. Text: Ezekiel What a powerful powerful verse of scripture. But also what a sad commentary of the condition of Israel. Chosen by God to be as nation that would bring in the Messiah of the world. He blessed them. He protected them. He delivered them. He gave them the most beautiful land in the world.
In return he got rejection. He got compromise. This is what we see in this verse. Israel began to sin greatly so God sent them into captivity hoping that it would lead them back to him. At first it was hard under the captivity of the Babylonians. The land was different. It was a new home and there was no freedom.
It was like being in Egypt all over again. But after a while every things began to settle. The Babylonian gods became the Gods of the Israelites.
Sometimes I wonder if the church reminds God of Israel. All gunho from the beginning but now we seem to settle in. An apathy has settled. A satisfaction has settled in. As some say the ,"Church is suppose to change the world but in the process the world has changed the church". There is compromise. The very people that is suppose to usher in the second coming has began to question it. The validity of scripture has been challenged. The world looks too good.
After 2, yrs. But just as God was looking for a man to "stand in the gap" I wonder if he is making that same call. Who will stand in the gap. Who will build the hedge? Who will stand in the way of sinners offering salvation.
Let it be today that before we leave we have it settled in our hearts what we will do. Sin creates a gap between God and man. God wants to fill the breach gap. God is looking for someone who will wake this world up to their sin. They cannot do it they see nothing wrong. Nor can the government. Job interceded for his children Job Job is considered to be the first book written in the Bible.
Job gives us a glimpse of what life was like in the life of ordinary people before Abraham. People still worshiped God and offered up sacrifices to him. Here we see the Godly relationship that Job had. He knew that his children were out. Abraham was a man who stood in the gap. Genesis 18 Sodom and Gomorrah Genesis Abraham knew the sin of this nation.
Abraham knew the wickedness and how they did everything that was of their imagination. He also knew that Lot had gone to stay in the city. He knew that if it was destroyed then Lot would be gone also. So he began to intercede.
He began to plead his cause with the Lord. He began with If only 50 righteous people were found then would God destroy this city. He wound up with ten. Surly there were ten people in Sodom who were righteous. Surly four other people would be righteousness. Abraham intercede for this city.
Yes judgement still came. But Abraham did all he could do and with that his nephew and Lots two daughters escaped. God blessed him because he intercede.

God Uses People to Bridge the Gap
What does the Bible say about? And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none. Therefore he said he would destroy them— had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no one to intercede; then his own arm brought him salvation, and his righteousness upheld him.
And then, in verse 26, He tells us how it happened:. When I read these words, they really spoke to my heart. How could that be?!

His father was a sluicer , that is, a man whose business it was to open and close the sluices, or large oaken gates, that are placed at regular distances across the entrances of the canals, to regulate the amount of water that shall flow into them. The sluicer raises the gates more or less according to the quantity of water required, and closes them carefully at night, in order to avoid all possible danger of an oversupply running into the canal, or the water would soon overflow it and inundate the surrounding country. As a great portion of Holland is lower than the level of the sea, the waters are kept from flooding the land only by means of strong dikes, or barriers, and by means of these sluices, which are often strained to the utmost by the pressure of the rising tides.
