A Prophet is a Prophet is a Prophet

And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that a prophet has been among them.  Ezekiel 2.5 ESV

Just like Jesus had absolute sovereignty and knew who He was and is who He is regardless of what other people thought or think, Ezekiel was going to be a prophet of God whether the people listened or not. There would be no question as to his authority or origins, but if the people chose not to listen, their judgment would be just.

How great would it be to live in such a way, that though people may argue or disagree, there would be no question that certainly God was present in your life?!

I think of the man born blind that Jesus healed, “All I know is that I was blind but now I see.” There is no denying the truth when it happens in real life right before you. Those that denied it in Jesus’ day knew the condemnation they would receive, ie. the rich man going away sad, the people shouting “let the blood be on our hands, Caesar is our King!”
