Video from Christ Content

"Ezekiel's Deserted Infant" This is a sermon by Charles Spurgeon (C.H. Spurgeon). Bible References: Ezekiel 16:5,6" from video introduction


“None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out into the open field, to the loathing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born. And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou waste in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou waste in thy blood, Live.” — Ezekiel 16:5-6

"DOUBTLESS the Lord here describes the Jewish people when they began to multiply in the land of Egypt, and were grievously oppressed by Pharaoh. Pharaoh had commanded them to cast out the male children that they might perish. Hence, the figure of an infant deserted, cast out into the open field to perish by wild beasts, by starvation, or exposure, was a very apt portrait of the youthful state of Israel, when God looked upon her in love, and brought her out of Egypt to set her in a goodly land. But all the best divines and expositors concur in the belief that we have here also a most extraordinarily apt and significant description of the human race by nature, and of the way in which God in divine mercy passes by the sinner when utterly lost and helpless, and by the power of the Spirit, bids him “Live.” At any rate, we intend so to consider it this morning. Without any preface, for we need none, we shall, first of all, bid you look at the misery of man's estate as set before us in the present verses; then, next, we shall search for motives which could urge the Lord to have pity upon this miserable one; and then, thirdly, we shall pause awhile to listen to the divine mandate by which this unhappy being is delivered from his lost estate. “I said unto thee, Live; yea, I said unto thee, Live.”

I. At the outset, I shall direct your contemplations to a survey of THE MISERY OF MAN’S ESTATE.." from the website:
