Yahweh, Day 220
The Son of Man
The word of the Lord came to me: "Son of man, face the south and preach against it. Prophesy against the forest land in the Negev, and say to the forest there: Hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Lord God says: I am about to ignite a fire in you, and it will devour every green tree and every dry tree in you. The blazing flame will not be extinguished, and every face from the south to the north will be scorched by it. Then all people will see that I, Yahweh, have kindled it. It will not be extinguished." Then I said, "Ah, Lord God , they are saying of me: Isn't he [just] posing riddles?"
Ezekiel 20:45-49 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Our Messiah's favorite title for Himself, "Son of Man." It is from Ezekiel that our Lord gleans this title. It is worthy of note that our Lord's favorite reference to Himself is an identification with humanity.
This is in The Name.
