Ezekiel 16: I am the Truth

Trinity Sunday, May 27, 2018

It is best to read this prophecy with a commentary since some of the history and references can be confusing; but the most striking element in chapter 16 is the fact the revelation that all the actions we believe we do in the dark will come eventually come to the light. All is ultimately revealed.

Here we see how Israel turns away from Yahweh to play the harlot with pagan nations. Worse than a prostitute, she does not take payment, but gives herself freely to one or to all. Still, God pardons her, as God pardons us.

I will honor the covenant I made with you when you were young, and I will make a covenant with you that will last forever.

We ask for forgiveness as we reveal our truth to a God who already knows it.

We make reparations for damages we complete to the Spirit who already heals us.

We ask for mercy that our acts of omission may be made whole through the goodness of the Son who is the Shepherd, The Way, the Vine to our branches, the Alpha and Omega, the Resurrection and the Truth. Let us today and all days remain in this certainty. For this is the truth we find in our covenant with God.

I will honor the covenant I made with you when you were young, and I will make a covenant with you that will last forever.

imagesCAZPBI3NPsalm 119:73-80

Yodh

Your hands made me and fashioned me . . .

“A small suspended point, reveals the spark of essential good hidden within the letter”. (Ginsburgh)

God says: I hide nothing from you and you need not hide anything from me.  Hiding, after all, is quite impossible for all truths are eventually revealed.  When you read my Word, both the old and the new scriptures tell you that in the end all truth is revealed and all that was thought hidden is exposed to the light.  How much better it is then, to live in the open truth rather than in dark corners that will eventually be flooded by light.

How much better it is to spend our energy on sharing the good news of God’s unconditional love with others than plotting and planning in the dark.  This letter is the smallest in the Hebrew alphabet and this tenth strophe that bears its name teaches us a lesson in humility.

Lord, you have probed me; you know me: you know when I sit and stand; you understand my thoughts from afar . . . Where can I hide from your spirit?  From your presence where can I flee? . . . You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb.  (Psalm 139)
