"Human Dung Cakes"

Scripture:   Ezekiel 4:9  ÂTake thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.
10  And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.
11  Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.
12  And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.

Complete text:   Ezekiel 4:9  ÂTake thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.
10  And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.
11  Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.
12  And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.
13  And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.
14  Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.
15  Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.
16  Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
17  That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.

The Christian Churches are going to eat these dung cakes?

Before we witness what is about to be demonstrated,
it is worth reminding ourselves that "bread"
is always symbolic of "doctrine".

Jesus Christ, the Word of God,
is that true bread that came down from heaven
(even born in the town called "House of Bread", Beth-lehem in Hebrew)
and is the daily bread that we are to eat.

But there are other "breads", other than the Word of God,
that are made by man and fed to God's children.

They are the "traditions of man".
Here are Christ's words to His disciples concerning bread:

Matthew 16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

[12] Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

We are now ready for the next scene.
Ezekiel 4:9  Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.
I count 6 grains, a mixed bag of ingredients from which to make bread,
unlike the fine meal used for delicate cakes (Gen 18:6).

The number "6" is the number of "man".
666 is you-know-who!

Ezekiel 4:10 And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.
Twenty shekels of bread is about 10 ounces per day
and that is barely enough to sustain a person.
Ezekiel 4:11 Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.
About a pint and a half of water per day is all he gets to drink too!
Ezekiel 4:12 And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.
WHAT?

Mix in some "humanous poopous"?

And make sure everyone sees it!
(I was just getting over the flying saucer thing (Pamphlet #4155)  and now this!
And what is this play rated anyway? PG-13?)

Ezekiel 4:13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.
The children of Israel are going to eat these dung cakes?

Yes, they are!

The LORD God said so!

They would be scattered among the Gentiles
and eat their defiled bread,
and they eat it to this very day!

This is exactly the PICTURE our Father wants us to SEE
regarding man's religion.

Pretty graphic, isn't it?

Man's 6 grain bread, his mixed bag of doctrines, is baked with man's dung. The "man" whose dung it is mixed with is the "ish" (man) of Isaiah 14:15. It is Satan's output, his crap, the "bread" of antichrist, and it is an abomination! But I guess his nice little religious cakes, like the Rapture Theory, must taste pretty good after all, for it is a very popular menu item. (Now you know why their seats upon which they sit in church are called in pews.)

Have you noticed that up to this point
Ezekiel hasn't said much about the things he's had to do and the parts he's had to play?

He went to the plain like a good watchman,
he built the siege of Jerusalem model,
he placed the iron bread griddle,
and is now willing to lay laid on his side for 390 days.

But when asked to eat these dung cakes,
made with man's dung none the less,
he quickly objects,
"Ah, Lord GOD,
can I say something here?"

Ezekiel 4:14 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.
He lets the Lord know
that he has always observed the health laws in Leviticus 11,
which the Lord Himself gave.

God has to be chuckling to Himself
as Ezekiel scrambles to get out of this one!
And Ezekiel did good.

He made his point,
documenting his argument from the Word.
(Of course God knew all along that He wasn't going to make Ezekiel
actually eat man's dung anyway.

Ezekiel 4:15  Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.
The Lord cuts him a real break here, huh?
Ezekiel 4:16  Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
Jesus Christ is going to put an end to the "pollution"
which stems from Jerusalem.

Yes, Christ did break the "staff of bread"
in Jerusalem at His first advent, when He was crucified on the cross.

Yet He will put a permanent end to it at the sound of the 7th Trump,
at His second advent.

Ezekiel 4:17   That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.
You can read of their dismay and astonishment
in Revelation chapter 18. Meanwhile,
there are not many pure,
undefiled bread cakes to be found in the world.

We are in the famine of the end times,
and it will get a whole lot worse when the "dung flinger" himself arrives.

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Not many of God's children eat the scroll
within and without
that is laid before them,
yet most people have it available in their very homes.
Yes, The Bible!

You now know what they eat: "Dung Crisp", "Dung Toasties", and "Sugar Dung Pops".
Yummy!

We now continue with Ezekiel's enactment
of the prophetic judgments upon the city of Jerusalem.

He is portraying it in a manner in which we can VISUALIZE
that city in the midst of the nations and create a mental PICTURE,
even a "Virtual Movie" in our mind's eye .

Remember Ezekiel had taken a Babylonian brick
and etched the city of Jerusalem on it
(showing that Jerusalem rests upon uncleanness and confusion),
and laid it before him, and set battle array against it.

He then set an iron "bread" griddle between him and the city
to symbolize his separation and protection,
and then he began to show the city under siege.

The Lord then told him to lie on his left side 390 days for the House of Israel
and then turn over and lie on his right side 40 days for the House of Judah,
each day being given for a year,
to show the length of time of their respective punishments.
Also, during this time period of Israel's punishment
he was to be rationed bread and water,
consuming just enough to survive.
And worse yet,
the bread he was to eat was to be made
with a convoluted blend of 6 grains mixed with man's dung
(which God then allowed him to substitute with cow patties).

This symbolized the defiled "doctrines"
that the children of Israel would "eat" among the nations,
and they continue to eat "doodoo bread" even to this very day.
In many of our Christian churches no less!

God then promised that He Himself would eventually
completely break the "staff of bread"
(call it the main source)
in Jerusalem,
which Jesus Christ will accomplish at the sound
of the 7th Trump when He returns.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
