Marked Men

Set a mark upon . . . the men that . . . cry.
EZEKIEL 9:4

There is a pre-eminence about the Man in verse 2, clad in linen, with the writers inkhorn by His sidethe divine Registrar inscribing and keeping the names of Gods dear ones in His book, the book of the Lamb slain. The instructions are to set a mark upon the men that cry over the hideous sin of the land.

The stamp of God is upon some men still, even in these dark times when Ezekiel ministers. These bear the mark of redemption. The saints are designated living epistles, known and read of all men, with the Authors signature upon them wherever they go (II Cor. 3:2; cf. Acts 9:13, 15).

God wants identified men. This mark surely sets each man apart as Gods own possession, his life well-pleasing to his Master. The Saviour knows the number of His redeemed. Thus He sets His seal upon every one of them.

Sin should alarm the saints. Abominations should distress them. Let us never allow ourselves to become hardened. The book of Hebrewslike Ezekiel, the book of the inner sanctuarywarns against being hardened by the deceitfulness of sin (Heb. 3:13). We must keep a tender conscience in all things.

Good men are marked by brokenness and prayer. They sigh and cry for all the abominations done in the midst of Jerusalem. Too many pray with dry eyes, dull hearts, and dilatory, wandering thoughts. God requires a contrite spirit, not much in evidence these days (Psa. 51:17; 57:15).

There is no exemption by class in Gods sight. The little children, the ancients, the sanctuary menall become answerable for what they do (Ezek. 9:6, 10). We must all bear the mark of the Lord on earth to be owned by Him in glory.

It is a human thing to fall into sin, a devilish thing to persevere in it, and an angelical thing to rise out of it.
Augustine
