Ezekiel warns God's people that, due to their choosing to live sinful lives and worship other God's Jerusalem will fall and it does. In the book of Ezekiel, the Lord speaks to him through symbols and metaphors that enable Ezekiel to picture the future for his people. In Ezekiel 37:23 hope for Israel remains in God's word, "They will no longer defile themselves with their idels and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them." This hope for the people of Israel, and the world, becomes evident in Jesus Christ.
