Pound Your Fists

I’ve witnessed preachers pounding theirs fists on pulpits. Yet, it’s been a long, long time…

“Thus says the Lord God: ‘Pound your fists and stamp your feet, and say, ‘Alas, for all the evil abominations of the house of Israel! For they shall fall by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence. He who is far off shall die by the pestilence, he who is near shall fall by the sword, and he who remains and is besieged shall die by the famine. Thus will I spend My fury upon them.Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when their slain are among their idols all around their altars, on every high hill, on all the mountaintops, under every green tree, and under every thick oak, wherever they offered sweet incense to all their idols. So I will stretch out My hand against them and make the land desolate, yes, more desolate than the wilderness toward Diblah, in all their dwelling places.

Then they shall know that I am the Lord’ ” ’ ” (Ezekiel 6:11-14 NKJV)

What would the typical response of most worshippers be today? Would the congregation ask for the pastor’s resignation?

Imagine your pastor pounding his fists and stomping his feet!

Would a message on God’s judgment and wrath be acceptable?

Is idol worship a relevant subject?

These are thoughts to ponder…

“Then they shall know that I am the Lord (Ezekiel 6:14b NKJV).”
