Ezekiel message entitled EZEKIEL, continues below in chapter 39 of Ezekiel.
The prophet Ezekiel continues teaching us what will shortly come to pass, and is already coming into place.
Ezekiel 39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
Remember from the previous message that Ezekiel is speaking to Russia, Iran, Syria, and all others who align themselves with these nations in this day. Here God is about to tell them what will become of them because of their evil thought, and act of coming against Israel in this day in which we now live.
Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
God says, through His prophet Ezekiel that only 1/6th part of this band of nations will be left.
Ezekiel 39:3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
Ezekiel 39:4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
Ezekiel 39:5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
God says here, that He will cause them to fall upon the mountains of Israel, Russia and all of her bands, and the nations that are with thee. He says, I will give them to the ravenous birds, and beasts of the field to be devoured. Brothers, know that when God has spoken against an enemy of Israel, that nation will endure all of His wrath.
Ezekiel 39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
Russia and all who launch weapons from their respective nations, God says here, He will cause those weapons, including nuclear, to rain back down upon their own people.
Please remember that those who know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will not be here during this terrible day. We the Church will have been caught up to meet Jesus in the air just before this event happens. But, this is why we must bring all whom we can into the family of God, so that they may escape these things which will shortly come to pass.
Ezekiel 39:7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
God now says that not only will the heathen of this world know that He is the Lord, the Holy One in Israel, but He will also make His Holy name known in the midst of His people Israel. and He will not allow His name to be polluted by His people anymore.
Ezekiel 39:8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
Ezekiel 39:9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
Ezekiel 39:10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.
Here God says, that Israel shall take enough fuel from these weapons, that they will not need additional fuel for seven years. Which just happens to be the length of the tribulation period on earth, which will begin on this day. The population, of the nations of the world, will struggle for lack of things needed to survive this period. But, Israel will use what God has delivered to them from her enemies.
Ezekiel 39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.
Ezekiel 39:12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
There will be so many enemies who die over the land of Israel that it will take seven months to bury them all.
Ezekiel 39:13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
God says here that all of the people of the land of Israel shall busy themselves burring her enemies, and that God shall be glorified by them for having destroyed her enemies in this way.
Ezekiel 39:14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
God tells us here that even those men who pass by seeking employment, will be hired to help with the burring.
Ezekiel 39:15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
All burring will take place in the valley called Hamongog, and any one who sees even a bone sticking up out of the ground shall place a sign by it, and those who are burring will transport it to Hamongog and burry it.
Ezekiel 39:16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
Ezekiel 39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
Ezekiel 39:18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
Ezekiel 39:19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
Ezekiel 39:20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
Every dead man or beast shall be food for the ravenous birds of the air, and for the beasts of the field.
Ezekiel 39:21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
Imagine, for a moment if you will, all of the news programs from around the world will be showing this carnage 24 hours a day. The heathen of the world will see God's judgment, and His hand that he has executed upon the enemies of Israel.
Ezekiel 39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
Ezekiel 39:23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
Ezekiel 39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
Ezekiel 39:25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
God says that even though He hid his face from them for previous years because of their trespasses against Him. He will now show mercy upon the whole house of Israel.
Ezekiel 39:26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
Ezekiel 39:27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
Ezekiel 39:28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
Here God has told Israel that all Jews from every nation shall now return to her, and that none of them will be scattered any more.
Ezekiel 39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
Pray for the lost of this world every day, that hey might know Jesus, and escape these things which will soon come to pass.
God Bless you my brothers,
