Ezekiel 24: The Way That Satan Does Things
"For thy Maker is thine Husband; the LORD of hosts is His Name"
The LORD (see The Identity Of The LORD God and The LORD God Our Saviour) was the Creator of natural, genuine marriage between a man and a woman. Satan then became the mis-creator of the follies and abominations that some very confused humans (see The Cure For Confusion) have declared is "marriage." The LORD Creates reality from nothing, while Satan's delusional influence mis-creates by perverting reality into nothing (see also Satan's Sandals and Why Does Satan Love Liars?).
"2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (Genesis 2:24 KJV)
The concept of true marriage extends to the reason that God is called the Father and the true Christian Church is called a woman from which the children of God will be born (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16?). The Kingdoms of Israel were created as living prophecies of the Eternal place where the children of God will be born and live forever (see What Gospel Did Jesus Preach?). Satanic delusions and abominations of any sort do not portray that - and in due time will prevent the entry of those who refuse to repent of those self-worshipping mockeries of the LORD.
"54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. 54:6 For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God." (Isaiah 54:5-6 KJV)
The Kingdoms of Israel became an adulterous wife to the LORD, to the point that they became harlots in the LORD's Sight (see What Did Israel Do In The Harlot's Tent?). In a stark condemnation, "She hath wearied herself with lies ... thy filthiness is lewdness."
"24:1 Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 24:2 Son of man, write thee the name of the day, even of this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day. 24:3 And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
The alienation between the LORD and the betrothed people of the object-lesson prophecy who chose to forsake Him became so irreparable that it was as though "she" had died and made the LORD a widower - another object-lesson prophecy that was given to the prophet Ezekiel to demonstrate when his own wife died.
"24:15 Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Fact Finder: How has Satan turned Christianity into a delusion for many people?
