End of Ezekiel’s Ministry

“The word of the Lord comes to Ezekiel again.  This time it comes as a somewhat strange footnote to a judgment which Ezekiel had brought 16 years earlier against the city of Tyre.  Pursuant to the earlier prophecy, Nebuchadnezzar was to destroy Tyre completely, and someday it would be left a ‘bare rock.’  Since then Nebuchadnezzar has not been able to reach the island city of Tyre itself — at least not profitably enough to make it worth his trouble.  Therefore God seems to be telling Ezekiel that he is giving Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar as a consolation prize.”

Nebuchadnezzar’s Temporary Insanity

“In what appears to be the last two or three years of his reign, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia apparently becomes a true believer in the powerful God of his servant Daniel.  He in fact still believes that all his accomplishments have been the result of his own abilities, and he fails to see a purposeful God working through him.  As he reflects on his reign, his heart is filled with false pride.  Yet, ironically, this very pride makes Nebuchadnezzar and easy target for God’s final appeal to him.

Nebuchadnezzar issues an edict telling the whole world how God first warned him and then proceeded to humble him by bringing on a period of temporary insanity.  He expressed reason for revealing the embarrassing incident is to bring honor to a God powerful enough to so humble a world leader, yet gracious enough to restore him to his throne.”

End of Jeremiah’s Ministry

“Nebuchadnezzar is succeeded by his sown Awel-Marduk.  In the first year of his reign he releases Jehoiachin from prison and bring shim to a place of honor in Babylonia.”

“Although there will be other prophets and prophecies to come, the era of the great written prophecies of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel now comes to a close.”

Ezekiel’s Prophecies During Siege

“Over the two-year period of Jerusalem’s siege, Ezekiel’s prophecies concentrate on Judah’s many oppressors.  Like prophets before him, Ezekiel pronounces scathing judgments against these nations for their own wickedness and their many wars against God’s people. 

Beyond the various judgments against Israel’s enemies which Isaiah, Jeremiah, and others have already brought, Ezekiel’s judgments condemn the celebration which will take place over Judah’s fall.  It will be the nations’ self-righteous gloating which will draw God’s wrath.  He will not sit idly by when his people are disgraced in the eyes of their haughty neighbors.”
