Ezekiel's Bread

You have probably seen Ezekiel’s Bread in the store, which the manufacturer makes based on this passage, “Also take for yourself wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet, and spelt; put them into one vessel, and make bread of them for yourself. During the number of days that you lie on your side, three hundred and ninety days, you shall eat it” (Ezekiel 4:9).
This was no comfort food, but it was part of the prophet’s demonstration of what the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem would be like.
It amazes me how many times God revealed to the Jews that He was sending the Babylonians, and the different men He used to reveal what was coming, and the various methods He employed, such as Ezekiel’s bread.
The Lord did not want to destroy Jerusalem, but He did not want the city sinning either.
