Ezekiel 12:21-28 NLT

21 Again a message came to me from the :
22 “Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: ‘Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing.’
23 Tell the people, ‘This is what the Sovereign says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it.’ Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: ‘The time has come for every prophecy to be fulfilled!’
24 “There will be no more false visions and flattering predictions in Israel.
25 For I am the ! If I say it, it will happen. There will be no more delays, you rebels of Israel. I will fulfill my threat of destruction in your own lifetime. I, the Sovereign , have spoken!”
26 Then this message came to me from the :
27 “Son of man, the people of Israel are saying, ‘He’s talking about the distant future. His visions won’t come true for a long, long time.’
28 Therefore, tell them, ‘This is what the Sovereign says: No more delay! I will now do everything I have threatened. I, the Sovereign , have spoken!’”
