Ezekiel was a priest and prophet to the Jewish nation in exile in Babylon. He reminded the people that it was their sin that had brought them to this place, but that GOD was still wanting to restore and rebuild the nation.

In Ezekiel 18:32, we are told that " For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!"

He also emphasizes personal responsibility for sin, and righteousness. 
'For everyone belongs to me, the parent as well as the child—both alike belong to me. The one who sins is the one who will die. "Suppose there is a righteous man, who does what is just and right.
 He follows my decrees and faithfully keeps my laws... That man is righteous; he will surely live",
declares the Sovereign Lord.'
(Ezekiel 18:4-5,9)

Woe unto Israel.
You do not do what is right.
Turn yourself; and live.

God does not want us to sin.  God does not want to lose us.
He gives us every opportunity to turn back to Him, and He calls us to do it all the time.
Do we listen?
