North vs. South Islamic Alliance
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
The Middle East is like a time bomb ticking closer and closer to detonation…!
The situation today in Israel like in the times of the Maccabees; one part chose to give into the pressure from the world rule Antiochus Epiphanies in order to become like the other nations, while a small remnant chose to stay faithful to God eventually this remnant secured freedom for the Jewish people, which made it possible for the Messiah to come the first time. Antiochus Epiphanies is the main picture in the Bible of the coming antichrist. Daniel wrote about this …"he shall seduce with flattery those who violate the covenant, but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action," Daniel 12:32. We MUST pray for the faithful remnant here in Israel. God is the one who is going to bring these armies against Israel…"I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army …your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords," Ezekiel 38:4 Why horses, horsemen and shields as these seem to be a primitive way for an army of today…? But, if we think logically it is radical Islam that wants to take the world back to the 7th Century in the Shariah laws and teachings of Quran! The battle of Armageddon will be World War 3 but will not be the last war where all the nations of the world will surround Israel and attempt to defeat her but the outcome of this is written for us in Joel 3: 16, 19-20. For sure Israel has two wars on the horizon… Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 and unfortunately Ezekiel is clear NOBODY comes in defence of Israel and by definition includes the United States who is considered her closest ally! We have just very recently witnessed this hostile and harsh treatment that Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu experienced from US president Obama during the Israeli election. It seems a safe bet that Europe will not raise a hand to help protect Israel against an attack. Even the US support for Israel has begun to dwindle as many turn towards supporting the Palestinians getting a state …which by the way is NOT biblical as nowhere in the Bible does it say God gave the land to the Palestinians! The real test will come for the US when Turkey, Iran, Russia and Muslim countries begin to move forces towards Israel! Turkey’s PM Erdogan has declared himself leader of the Islamic Caliphate and the role with Iran as we see the "alliance" of nations rising to make war against Israel as prophesised in Ezekiel 38.
The most volatile property on the face of the earth is in fact a small piece of ground in Jerusalem, on a mountain called the "Temple Mount" or Mount Moriah in Genesis 14; 22:1-8 …and is holy to Jews and Christians because of the Bible. It was legally purchased by King David (2 Samuel 24; 1 Chronicles 21; 2 Chronicles 3:1) and the only historical and biblical record where the mountain was ever purchased was during his reign! This purchase agreement of King David more than 3,000 years ago gives the Jewish people the legal right to claim the mountain as belonging to their descendants!
"Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel (9:27; 11:31) the prophet, stand in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand)," Matthew 24:15. Today, on that same mountain sits the two Islamic Muslim Mosques built in 709-715 AD and is now referred to as the "Dome of the Rock" and "Al-Aqsa." It is here that Muslims claim it to be their 3rd holiest site as they say it is connected to Mecca through the black stone called the Kabah. They claim Abraham was a Muslim and supposedly to have offered Ishmael (not Isaac as the Bible and historical facts confirm) …since they don’t believe in the Bible only the Quran which altered biblical scriptures to suit their Islamic beliefs! We need to keep in mind here that there were NO Islamic teachings until 600 years after Yeshua (Jesus) …when Muhammad came on the scene and brought his pagan religion of Islam to the world. Before that time the only evidence found was of the pagan "moon god" Allah and his daughters …as well as the crescent moon symbols pre-dating Islam by several thousand years.
The crescent moon became the symbol of Islam in the time of the Ottoman Empire, after the Turks invaded and conquered Constantinople (Istanbul) in 1453 from the Byzantium which held it as far back as Christ’s birth. The Turkish people tell of Osman (1299-1922), the founder of the Ottoman /Turkish Empire dreamed that the crescent moon "stretched from one end of the earth to another" and so he kept the crescent moon as the emblem of his dynasty! Today we see this emblem of the crescent moon perch atop of every mosque and minaret worldwide. The emblem of the crescent moon is also found on flags on numerous Muslim countries, including Turkey.
It is very important to note … that on the “Dome of the Rock” a Muslim shrine built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the emblem on top is NOT a partial crescent moon similar to other mosques and minarets…. But, is a FULL MOON or a full circle! It is aligned so that if you look through it you would be looking directly at Mecca or Saudi Arabia. It is said that the full moon is a picture of “completion”… a full circle that begins in Jerusalem and ends in Jerusalem! According to Islamic belief the crescent of Islam will eventually come FULL circle and return for the battle of Jerusalem to claim Islam’s 3rd holiest site where their two Islamic mosques are surrounded by Jews and Christians.
Biblically, ALL prophetic events surrounding the Messiah’s return began in Jerusalem and WILL end in Jerusalem…! The prophet Joel spoke of a day when the moon would turn to blood (Joel 2:31), a common rabbinical metaphor for “full lunar eclipses” which we are also seeing today in the “blood moons” of 2014/5! In Scripture, “blood” can be alluded to: the literal blood of a sacrifice (Exodus 12:7); the blood of humans being shed (Matthew 27:4); a metaphor for war and fighting (Ezekiel 38:22). Current events today are colliding with biblical prophecies and with ever increasing frequency… Not only are the uprisings involving the nations of biblical prophecy BUT they are in fact occurring in the region where the anti-Christ will set up his kingdom and final empire just as prophesied!
For many years Julie and I have taught that Islam is a “sleeping giant” that would some day be “awakened” and become a strategic part of the end-time prophecy and today everything is falling into place. Israel’s enemies surround her and are all Islamic nations bent upon her destruction and though they are made up of different Muslim sects with different Islamic beliefs such as Sunni or Shiite …but, they are ALL united with a common goal… Jerusalem!
In 1948, prophecy was fulfilled after 2,000 years, when Israel was re-established as a nation again …and in 1967 another significant sign was that Jerusalem was now back in Jewish hands after 2000 years. When the Jews re-established Israel in 1948, reunited Jerusalem as the capital in 1967, annexed their original promised land with the 1948 boundaries, God restored His promise to Abraham and David. When a world leader such as Obama and the UN demands the division of the land, he or she is actually coming against the covenant that God sealed with His own Name!
Our generation is different from those of the past 1900 years when Israel was expelled from the land, when numerous nations were permitted to live in what was called “Palestine.” Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd Century changed “Israel (Canaan)” to “Palistina” pronounced “Falastin” after the enemies of Israel … the Philistines because they hated them for the “Bar Kokhba” revolt against the Roman Empire! They tried to remove all traces of Jewish identity from the land by changing what God called Israel. However, when the people were brought back from the Holocaust …and God raised them up as an army in the land of “un-walled” villages (Ezekiel 38), the game changed! Anyone who publicly demands a new division of the land into two separate nations is saying he or she does not believe in the Abrahamic Covenant of the Bible …and that person holds no regard for the promises God gave to Abraham, David, and the Jews concerning the future of Jerusalem. By his or hers unbiblical demands, that person is also calling God a liar, because God swore by Himself to Abraham when He established this covenant (Hebrews 6:13-14). However, let present and future leaders be warned – demanding a division of a covenant land means that you are mocking the words and promises given to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Jews that were sealed in the blood of animal sacrifices and by the blood of circumcision of male Hebrew sons. When God remembers His covenant with Israel, He will either release mercy of judgement. For Egyptian slave owners… God released judgement, BUT for His people in captivity… He gave them freedom to leave Egypt and return to the land of promise. God is now extending covenant mercy for His people, the Jews, in the land of Israel …and He will eventually visit the Gentile nations in judgement for their treatment of His covenant people… the antichrist will confirm the covenant… and then break the covenant in the middle of the seven year Tribulation (Daniel 9:27). BUT, destruction will eventually come because God will stand up and fight for Jerusalem! God’s Name is at stake and He remembers His covenant!
Today, the events in the Middle East …the rise of (Persia) Iran and Middle Eastern Arab countries around Israel are striking the world suddenly and unexpectedly! When such an event or forewarning of “birth pangs” of world events actually signals the birth of fulfilled biblical prophecy. An example of such collision actually lead to World War II and can be compared to Ezekiel 37- “…the valley of dry bones” with graveyards of human bones in the Holocaust (Ezekiel 38:8-11) and then God raised Israel from her grave to dwell in “un-walled villages” when the nation was restored in 1948. As the independence was declared, Arab forces from Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq invaded Israel but with God’s help tiny Israel miraculously defeated them. Since the founding of Israel Egypt has engaged Israel in five different wars… The War of Independence 1948-1949; The Sinai War 1956; The 6th Day War 1967 when Jerusalem was liberated and finally back in Israel’s control; The War of Attrition 1968-1970 and The Yom Kippur War of 1973.In future wars of prophecy Egypt is not mentioned in conflict. We know from Ezekiel 38 listing that both Libya and Ethiopia will be in the coalition that will join Turkey and Persia (Iran) to attack Israel in the Gog Magog War. Perhaps the prophet Isaiah gives us insight into why Egypt is missing from this alliance that will form against Israel in the near future (Isaiah 19:17). Damascus… one of the oldest cities in Syria will be destroyed just as it is prophesied in Isaiah 17 where the Bible tells us that Syria will be a ruinous heap …and today we see all the terrorism of ISIS, and evil Islamic groups forming alongside Israel’s northern border with Syria. Lebanon… will also be one of the nations that will be part of the alliance against Israel and Hezbollah is actively preparing tunnels and weaponry for the day when they will attack Israel (Zechariah 11:1). The Arabian Gulf States is Sheba and Dedan in Ezekiel 38:13 and Gaza… is also mentioned in Amos 1:6 and all part of the end-time prophecy.
The Middle East in a nutshell… PM Erdogan of Turkey was the first person Obama called in 2008 when he won the election…! When US President Obama was elected in 2009 hardly anyone could “connect the dots” how he would soon “radically” change the Middle East by aligning himself with radical Islamic Muslim countries that want to annihilate Israel …but today it is clear as he has openly declared his intentions to “stand with Muslims” …period! The concept of Democracy is not the same for Muslims as it is for the West because Islam does not allow freedom of religion or freedom of speech. Women are treated as subjects of men and not allowed the same privileges. Children are taught Islamic ways from a young age ...marriage is permitted for more than one woman and there is also the allowing of older men to have child brides and marry girls as young as 6 years old. Muslims will defend other Muslims no matter what sect they belong to should they be targeted by the US or Israel. With Jerusalem being the 3rd holiest site for Islam, Muslims also unite together concerning the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as they see Jews and Christians as infidels and occupiers since any ground that has been previously conquered for Allah can never be surrendered and MUST be liberated again …therefore peace cannot come!
We are beginning to see a shaking and upheaval in the nations that will create the void that will bring in the antichrist. Time always tells even as we look back over just a short time!
The so-called Arab "Spring" is fast becoming the Arab nuclear "winter!" The tragic event that "sparked" unrest in Tunisia on the 17th December, 2010 when a Tunisian man set himself on fire in protest soon turned into riots that quickly spread throughout the country. Following the success of Tunisia the sea of fire soon ignited Egypt (Isaiah 19:2-4) and Hosni Mubarak resigned as president bringing into power the radical Islamist Muslim Brotherhood which was quickly accepted and funded by the US Obama Administration, as the people cried, "Egypt is free..!" When there is a void a dictator will fill the gap! Little did the Egyptians realise that this "freedom" would very soon bring bondage and suffering! So, as we recall the Muslim Brotherhood was then ousted within months and much to the anger of Obama and Muslim Brotherhood supporters who refused to accept the Egyptian people’s choice. And, again we see this anger in Obama in the March 2015 Israeli elections when the Israeli‘s choose Bibi Netanyahu to be re-elected instead of the US funded opposition!
"And at the end-time, the king of the south shall butt at him. And the king of the north shall come against him like a tempest, with chariots and with horsemen and with many ships. And he shall enter into the countries and shall overflow and pass over. He shall also enter into the glorious land, and many shall be stumbled. But these shall escape out of his hand: Edom and Moab, and the chief of the sons of Ammon. And he shall stretch out his hand on the lands. And the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt. And the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps," Daniel 11:40-43. The glorious land is Israel and Edom, Moab and Ammon are all in Jordan and the capital is Amman. According to God’s Word Jordan will escape the antichrist as it is to here where the Jews will flee to Petra when he takes control of Jerusalem (Psalm 108:9; Revelation 12:6). The king of the South is Egypt who will not escape his control neither will Libya or Ethiopia and they will eventually follow his command. The king of the north is Turkey who is today aligning prophetically with Iran and ISIS in Syria and Iraq. However, on the 15th February, 2011 only 18 days after Mubarak was toppled …radical Islamist rebels in Benghazi began rioting against Col. Muammar Gaddafi (who was later executed on 20th Oct. 2011). Then on 11th Sept. 2012 the US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were brutally and savagely killed. After Gaddafi‘s death Libya became a very dangerous terrorist hot spot run by Al Qaeda. And, eventually as we see today the most cruel and savage radical Islamist group; ISIS who would not only claim Libya …but also have roots in Egypt, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. The US and the West has done very little to stop these evil Islamist Muslim groups such as ISIS, Boko Haram, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Nusrah, Abbas’s P.A. from metastasizing!
According to Islam the time will come when the entire world will be converted to the Islamic religion and no other religion will be allowed to be practised... Under their rule they have five assignments that will usher in this rule and we are seeing this happen in our day: The first assignment would be to force conversion or death. The second assignment would be to destroy churches and synagogues. The third assignment would be to capture and restrain youth. The fourth assignment would be to spread Islam to new areas and make new converts and to have them travel to other nations to take Islam to the West. And the fifth assignment and always the most important are to spread hate about Jewish people and Israel so the world would join the campaign to destroy Israel through their propaganda.
The reason God first gives us a list of the enemies of Israel is further proof that there will be an Islamic invasion! How do we know this…? We can see this in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 and because it is commanded in their Quran that every Muslim’s desire is to cover Israel… the Jewish land… and wipe them off the face of the earth! Urged on by their hatred for the Jewish people they will seek to destroy them and the nation of Israel. Their invasion of Israel and attack on the Jewish people will indeed be their final JIHAD! God tells us that they also come to "seize plunder… and capture great spoil." (Ezekiel 38:13) Many verses in the Quran advocate plundering for the benefit of Islam and there are several instances of this war tactic in the life of Muhammad and in fact it is the theme of his teachings. This impending war in the Middle East will be a major and a devastating war BUT they will be destroyed by the armies of Israel (Jeremiah 49:2, 8 and 19). These are just three of many scriptures that point to a Middle East war that is fast approaching. Psalm 83:13-15 and Isaiah 17:13 use the same six Hebrew words of; galgal, paniym, ruach, har, radaph, and sulphah, suggesting that there is a connection between the prophecies of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17.
Psalm 83: "O my God, make them as whirling dust (galgal), as the chaff before (paniym) the wind (ruach)! As the fire burns the woods, and as the flame sets the mountains (har) on fire, so pursue (radaph) them with Your tempest, and frighten them with Your storm (Suphah). Psalm 83:13-15
Isaiah 17: "The nations will rush like the rushing of many waters, but God will rebuke them and they will flee far away. And be chased (radaph) like the chaff of the mountains (har) before (paniym) the wind (ruach), like a rolling (galgal) thing before (paniym) the whirlwind (suphah)." Isaiah 17:13 NKJV
"The day of the Lord (Tribulation) is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head. Just as you (Esau) drank (experience judgement) on My holy hill (Israel), so all the nations will drink continually; they will drink and drink and be as if they had never been," Obadiah 1:15-16. This is a key scripture which reveals Esau’s judgement that will happen before "Tribulation" or "The Day of the Lord." While Psalm 83 tells us of this coming war Obadiah a short book of only twenty one passages gives us insight into Obadiah’s vision given to him by God of the coming Middle East War. "And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame. And the house of Esau shall be for stubble. And they shall kindle in them and burn them up. And no survivor shall be to the house of Esau; for Jehovah has spoken it," Obadiah 1:18. As this invasion develops only few countries will make lame protests as we see today when Jews or Israel is attacked by terrorists. Interestingly, Saudi Arabia is the only Arab nation to consistently side with the West against radical Islam since this is the home of Mecca and Medina where Muhammad birthed his pagan religion of Islam? However, the Saudi’s mostly side with the West out of self preservation but at other times oppose the West behind the scenes and probably only put on this show against radical Islam so that they can maintain support from US and the West. We believe in the end they will show true their colours! No such and an invasion of the magnitude of Ezekiel 38 – 39 has ever happened in Israel’s history. To be sure Israel has suffered and encountered many battles and invasions in her history… but no such invasion has a massive alliance of nations in the territories of modern Turkey, Iran, Russia, Sudan and Libya has attacked Israel. Never has God utterly and horrifically destroyed an invading alliance with a massive earthquake with fire and brimstone from heaven, with infighting from among the troops and with disease. And, never has an invasion resulted in so many casualties that burying the dead required seven months. It didn’t take place in Ezekiel’s days … but it will take place in the end-time …last days!
Modern day Iran (Persia) is in the list of coalition Muslim nations from the north that will align with Russia in the end time invasion against Israel and we are witnessing this build up today. What is very interesting here is that it is the first time in 2,500 years that Iran and Russia are now working together as prior to our time they have been at odds with each other. It is only in the last ten years or so that they have been friends. The Ayatollah in Iran is on a messianic mission to destroy the Jews and certainly won’t lack any motivation to invade and destroy Israel! Iran has been busy over the years building alliances with other nations including the United States. They have this alliance with Russia who has helped them build a nuclear Iran and is today making headlines daily in the media and with a great concern of Iran building a nuclear bomb and in return Russia purchases military equipment from Iran. Iran has ties with Syria another rogue state …but is not mentioned by name in the northern alliance against Israel perhaps because Isaiah 17 precedes the Ezekiel 38 war. BUT, the most interesting alliance of all remains - Turkey!
Modern day Iraq (Babylon)… was once the centre of Ancient Babylonian Empire. Bagdad served as the headquarters’ and centre of operation for several Islamic dynasties …but today the area has been taken over by ISIS who has taken part of the land as their headquarters. Iraq is important as it is a prophetic area since the Euphrates River which begins in Turkey runs through there.
We must understand that there is a devil who tries everything possible to gain authority over God’s creation with the specific intention of destroying it… He unceasingly endeavours to destroy the image of God in human beings by blinding them spiritually and making them slaves of sin. His final objective is to be served and worshipped by all people. Additionally, his plans are to establish the antichrist in a position of authority on earth in the place of Christ!
The Hebrew word "sa-ir" means "devil" or "demon." In Leviticus 17:7 and 2 Chronicles 11:15 it is translated as "demon" or "devil." However, "sa-ir" can also be translated as "hairy demon." the devil is often visualised as a black goat or a human-like creature with the head of a goat. This abominable creature has human as well as animal features, but always with two goat-horns on his head. The Hebraic Old Testament also uses the word "shed" for "devil" (Deuteronomy 32:17). In Psalm 106:37-38 an ancient form of satanic worship is described, in which people sacrificed their children to demons. In this case, demons are equated with idols! As a precise and direct revelation of the "wicked one" the name "Satan" is only mentioned a couple of times in the Old Testament. This name means "Adversary" or "Enemy" and depicts Satan as the big adversary, or enemy, of God, Israel and all believers. "Now Satan stood up against Israel, and moved David to number Israel," 1 Chronicles 21:1. He deceptively motivated David into doing something that was contrary to God’s will. He is also the accuser of believers… "Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose (or accuse) him," Zechariah 3:1. In the following verse is another descriptive name that strongly alludes to Satan; "In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong, will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent," Isaiah 27:1. In the New Testament, both the names "Satan" and "devil" are used. "Devil" has been derived from the Greek term "diabolos" and means "false accuser" or "slanderer."
In Isaiah 14, the Lord uses the fall of the king of Babylon to describe Lucifer’s fall from heaven. Babylon is a symbol of Satan’s kingdom on earth… This is evidenced by the fact that Satan took possession of Nimrod after Babylon was first established, and influenced him to become a violent person, so arrogant and great in his own eyes that he built a city and a tower with its top reaching to heaven (Genesis 11:4). In this way, it was thought that fallen man could rule over the whole earth, ascend to heaven and declare himself to be God! During later history, the city of Babylon remained the symbol of a mighty kingdom, still violently opposed to the Kingdom of God. According to Revelation 18, the city will be rebuilt in the end-time and will once again exercise dominion over the nations of the world. The demonic nature of this evil city is clearly evident from prophecies regarding its final downfall; "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a habitation of demons, a prison for every fowl spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!" Revelation 18:2. Today it is in Iraq where ISIS, a cruel evil radical Islamic Muslim group and off-shoot of Al Qaeda has taken ground and supported by Turkey who allows them free movement into Syria and Iraq. And, it is today that ISIS is savagely beheading Christians, burying children alive, burning people that oppose them in cages, raping women and murdering all those who refuse to convert to Islam or their "beast" religion of Satan (Revelation 20:4).
Throughout the centuries, Lucifer was the real king of Babylon, also of mystery Babylon, the harlot mother of all the false religions. The human tyrants who ruled in Babylon were all personifications of him who gave expression to his rebellion, violence, religious self-deification and idolatry in the most extreme forms. It is fitting that Lucifer’s fall from heaven should be likened to the fall of Babylon’s king, as his kingdom is also destined to destruction. From this it is very obvious that it is Lucifer’s fate which is being discussed here, as the earthly king of Babylon was never described as Lucifer, (son of the morning,) who sat on the mount of the congregation in heaven and exalted himself to be equal with God …and weakened the nations, shook kingdoms, made the world a wilderness and destroyed cities (Isaiah 14:12-17). It must have been a sudden and highly dramatic event when Lucifer and his angels were cast out by God. John tells us in Revelation 12:4 that he drew a third of the angels of heaven with him, which is an indication of his considerable power and influence. The consequences of Lucifer’s expulsion from heaven were far-reaching. He swore to take vengeance on God and His kingdom by incessantly attacking and destroying His creation. This declaration of war finally transformed him into Satan …God’s Enemy and Adversary. He is particularly intent on controlling and destroying human beings who were created in God’s image; therefore, God describes him as a murderer from the beginning (John 8:44). Satan’s fall from heaven was only the beginning of his humiliation… following that, the opportunity was given him to reveal his true character, thereby filling up the measure of his iniquity. He did so by deceiving and destroying people. All of creation likewise suffers because of "the fall" and the destructive acts of the devil and his human henchmen (Romans 8:20). Satan will launch his most violent attack on mankind during the seven year-long reign of the antichrist because he knows that his time is short (Revelation 12:12). Many people will die because of wars, pestilences, famines and other calamities while the earth and its resources will be devastated. Satan’s fall, as described by Ezekiel and Isaiah, occurs during different stages. It will assume a further dimension when, at the end of the Great Tribulation when Christ returns, he will be thrown into the bottomless pit for 1000 years (Revelation 20:1-3) …Then, it will be said of him; "Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities?" Following his release from the pit at the end of the thousand years, Satan and all his followers will be cast into the lake of fire for ever!
The good news is that God wins and will come against these Islamic invaders Himself and destroy them...! Ezekiel 38:19-20 says… that there will be an earthquake so great that people all over the world will tremble. In the ensuing chaos people will tremble and their hearts faint and nations will begin to turn on each other. Ezekiel 38:22 says …that there will be plaques, torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulphur … just as God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah so will he destroy these invading forces on the land of Israel. Once again God will make it known to ALL the nations that He is Lord and give the nations proof that He is the Holy God of Israel. This war will also pave the way for the antichrist military rule over the world and will command that all worship him as God. With Islam defeated and the Christian Church raptured opposition to worshipping a man as God will be greatly reduced. Those who are left on earth will have neither mercy nor an army to mount much of protest against his rule.
So how do we as Christians respond to this prophecy…? In Ezekiel 39:6, 7 and 28 God says that this end-times battle WILL happen that... "they will know that I am the Lord!" This message is to cause Israel and the nations to know He is Lord and is repeated over 60 times in Ezekiel.
Clearly then ...God’s destruction of the northern and southern invaders will be a "powerful testimony" that no one can ignore! The whole world will behold God’s greatness (Ezekiel 38:22), His holiness (Ezekiel 38:23) and His glory (Ezekiel 39:13, 21). And, Israel will be utterly awed at God’s intervention on her behalf. God’s stunning defeat of Gog will force Israel to acknowledge His power and justice. So both Israel and the nations learn a great lesson about God in all of this. By learning about prophecy and teaching it to others people will be able to see God’s glory, majesty and sovereignty over the world and in the fulfilment of His divine Word!
By knowing the Bible and teaching it to others, they will also be able to see there is a divine creator who has a plan and purpose for them. Only through Yeshua (Jesus) is there any hope or victory for eternity.
