Brothers, Ezekiel the prophet of God prophesied here in Chapter 38 and 39 the coming events of our day. God tells us here that Israel and the Jewish people will shortly come to know their God once again. Please continue on with one thought in mind, and that is that all of the events of this prophesy is aligning themselves right now in this day. Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem and Israel the nation each day. We are to love them as God loves them, for if you have been born again by the blood of Jesus, then you have been grafted into the lineage of David. God's Word tells us that 'we are Jew inwardly, for we have been circumcised in the heart, not of flesh, but of spirit'.
Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me,
Ezekiel 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the
land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
Ezekiel 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold,
I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
Magog is modern day Russia, and Gog is whoever is their leader, presently it is Putin.
Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks
into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and
horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company
with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
Please recall throughout this prophesy that in Ezekiel's day this was how wars were fought, but in our day they are fought with Planes, Missiles, Armored Vehicles, War Ships, Nuclear Weapons, etc., and this is what will cover the land as storm clouds, and advancing ground troops.
Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them;
all of them with shield and helmet:
Persia is modern day Iran. Ethiopia, and Libya remain by the same name today.
Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of
Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
These are the smaller allies of modern Russia, and all lie to the north of Israel.
Ezekiel 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for
thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a
guard unto them.
God is speaking through Ezekiel here to Israel, and telling the whole company of Israel to assemble, and to stand on guard in this day which is to come. Brothers, now is the day in which time these things, spoken by Ezekiel, shall soon come to pass.
Ezekiel 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in
the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the
sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel,
which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and
they shall dwell safely all of them.
Israel is the land that is brought back from the sword. Israel is the one spoken of here who has been gathered together in modern day Israel, from many nations which they were scattered too. Many days have passed since Ezekiel spoke this prophesy.
Now is the latter years in which they shall be visited by Russia, Iran, Ethiopia, Libya and all of those who hate and curse Israel in this day. Please note here that her enemies do not only come from the north, but also the south as well. Ethiopia lies to the south and west, and Syria to the west. These and many more are aliening themselves in this hour to come against her.
Ezekiel 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm,
thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many
people with thee.
Ezekiel 38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also
come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou
shalt think an evil thought:
Ezekiel 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the
land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell
safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
In verse 11 above Ezekiel warns Israel, that her enemies will think an evil thought and say, we will go to the land of unwalled villages, to them who are at rest, that dwell safely. Brothers, here Ezekiel is describing Israel in this day, for in no other time in her history has she felt safe from her enemies. Even though missiles are launched at Jerusalem and her other cities every month, she does not fear them because of her great military strength. However, in the hour which comes it will not be her strength who delivers her, but rather our great and mighty God whom Israel, in part, has all but forgotten the many times that God has delivered her. But, there will not be any doubt this time, because of the shear magnitude of God's rath which shall befall her enemies in the presence of not only Israel, but the whole world who shall watch via all of the worlds satellites as God Almighty works the greatest show of his wrath since the flood of Noah' day. Read on now, and see what God will bring to pass before not only her eyes, but the eyes of the whole world.
Ezekiel 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to
turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the
people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and
goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of
Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee (Russia and her hord,) Art thou come
to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away
silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
The merchants of Tarshish, in verse 13 above, now makes up those lands who use to be known as The United Kingdom who was known as the Lion. With all of the young lions. The following modern day countries make up the Young Lions, - Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Great Brittan, and the United States of America. These are the Young Lions of the former United Kingdom of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Brothers, it is always the young lion who defends her family, and it will be these who will ask the above question, of verse 13, of Israel's enemies.
Ezekiel 38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say
unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel
dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
Ezekiel 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out
of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon
horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
Ezekiel 38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people
of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I
will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be
sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
God shall be sanctified in this hour.
Ezekiel 38:17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of
whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which
prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
Ezekiel 38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same
time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that
my fury shall come up in my face.
Ezekiel 38:19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my
wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the
land of Israel;
Pray for Israel, as God himself shall deliver her from all of her enemies, and those of her former allies who are slow to react to defend her in this day.
Ezekiel 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the
fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that
creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth,
shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the
steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
Ezekiel 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him
throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be
against his brother.
Ezekiel 38:22 And I will plead against him with
pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and
upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great
hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
Wow! Brothers, do you see that those people who are on this earth in this hour, will be en great fear of what God is doing. They will see the images of planes falling from the air which were not shot down by man made weapons, but rather by acts of God as described above by the prophet Ezekiel.
The Greek and other languages describe the above great hailstones as weighing 113 pounds each. Stop here and imagine a 113 pound hailstone falling from the skies like rain. God said that they will fall like rain. Hail stones of this size and weight will bring planes our of the sky. They will kill all people who are standing or working outside. They will kill the people in automobiles, houses, etc.
Ezekiel 38:23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify
myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know
that I am the LORD.
The people of many nations shall see these acts of God's wrath, and know that He is Lord.
Please allow me to say this. Shortly before this event happens, we the children of God who are alive as well as the sleeping saints, shall be caught up in the rapture, and ascend to meet Jesus in the air, and return to heaven with him.
God's word tells us in Luke 21:36 'that we are to pray always that we would be judged worthy to escape these things which shall shortly come to pass'. His word also tells us that we are to watch always for His soon appearing.
Brothers, this prophesy of Ezekiel in chapter 38 and 39 are for the Jewish people, and for the born again children of God in this day and hour. I will deliver the message that the Holy Spirit of God gives me concerning Ezekiel chapter 39 in the next day or so.
God Bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus,
HVM - C42215
