You have got to love chapter 4! What a crazy chapter. Many times God uses his prophets in a suffering way, to show the severity of the coming judgment. Poor Ezekiel is told to make a Lego model, tie yourself up, place a Foreman Grill on your side, eat gross bread cooked over human waste and do it for 430 days! Super, when do I start? Let us NEVER complain when God asks us to do something. Oh, I almost forgot, cut off all your hair and wear some, cut some up and burn some. Cool!
