Standing in the Gap



Standing in the Gap




Ezekiel 22:23-31, Pastor Howard Harden
Message delivered November 9th, 2014 during the morning services.

The prophet Ezekiel described a spiritual climate similar to the one we find ourselves in today.  In today's Scripture, we see three lessons to learn to help us stand for God in a world where it is increasingly difficult to do so.

  1. There's a WALL being BREACHED.
  2. There's a SEARCH being CONDUCTED.
    • We can "stand in the gap" by...
      • ...INTERCEDING in PRAYER.
      • ...PROCLAIMING the GOSPEL.
      • ...having a RIGHTEOUS INFLUENCE.
      • ...RECEIVING God's BLESSINGS.
  3. There's a CHARGE being MADE.
    • "The real problem is not the ABUNDANCE of SIN in the land.  It is the LACK of a RIGHTEOUS REMNANT."
