Prophecy: The Coming Fulfillment of EZEKIEL 38…

I ran into an old friend today on my early morning three mile run. He was on his bike and we waved and grunted out the obligatory, “good morning.” I finished my run and was huffing and puffing, pleased that my 58 year old body was dripping with sweat from my efforts. I was getting ready to stretch out when ‘Art’ pulled up alongside me on his bike. Still be winded, I asked, “How’s….. it….. going. He told me that his mother had passed away two weeks ago at the age of 96. I noticed a tear gather in the corner of his eye and spill unchecked down his cheek. He then switched topics and asked me about prophecy being fulfilled. (Art is the same person that I’ve BLOGGED about previously) Before I could answer, he proposed that there have people waiting for these prophecies to be fulfilled, in every generation. He pointed to the Jehovah’s Witnesses that have predicted, wrongly, I may add, the end of the world, at least a half a dozen times. I told him that I was very familiar with this line of reasoning and I’m asked about this all the time.

          I then launched into a diatribe about how all prophecy, or at least what concerns us today, hinges around the gathering of Israel, from the four corners of the earth and the reestablishing of it, in it’s ancient homeland. Of course this is what happened in 1948. Israel became a nation, in a single day, as the United Nations voted to recognize the nascent state. What is even more incredible, is that several prophecies were then fulfilled in 1967 during the Six Day war. Israel regained the old city of Jerusalem, thereby fulfilling the prophecy that, Jerusalem would be trampled over by the gentiles, until the times of the gentiles were finished. The 67 war also fulfilled the prophecy of Psalm 83, that lists the same nations that fought against Israel in that war. All of this is set up the following.

            We are seeing the stage being set, as the nations that are listed in the Ezekiel 38 & 39 prophecy are now all in place. According to the DEBKA file, Iran is now closer, to creating a nuclear bomb, than previously thought. Added to this is the realization the United States just sold the Israeli’s 1,000 bunker busting bombs – I wonder what for? The Russians – MAGAOG in the Ezekiel prophecy – have also entered the fray, not only with their recent military engagement in Georgia, but by selling the Iranians an advanced antiaircraft defense system, the S-300. This is a surface to air missile that ups the anti, for any aircraft that might attempt a strike on Iran’s, nuclear program. Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad,  has recently threatened that, “If anyone allows themselves to invade Iranian territory and its legal interests… our armed forces will break their hands before they pull the trigger…” (Iran is the 2nd nation listed in the Ezekiel propehcy)  So the saber rattling continues and most folks don’t even know that when this breaks loose it will be far greater destruction than what the world witnessed at, Hiroshima, or Nagasaki.

             One morning we will wake up, turn on the news and to our horror we will learn that the Middle East has erupted in war. The prophecy was written for our behalf. It was not written to create fear, but to warn us of coming events. In my opinion, it points to a being that is outside our space time continuum that has written what will happen as, He knows the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end. As we watch these events unfold, we should not have a spirit of fear but of, power, love and sound mind.

  1. As believers it should thrill us to see the prophetic Word being fulfilled before our eyes. I find it amazing how many Pastors and churches continue to ignore or explain away the prophicies of scripture. We are there! Even so, come Lord Jesus. Thanks again brother for your blog.

    BTW, I just heard on FOX News that they have now determined that Stonehenge was originally a healing center in the Iron Age. They said that it has not been determined however how the stones got there in the first place. Hmm.


  2. But wasn’t it interesting that earlier this year that President Bush, while visiting Israel, received a scroll in which he was identified as “Esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekiel 38:1). Leader of the West!”
    No one seems to want to talk about this, or what it may signify.

  3. Ezekiel “38 plus” of the Old Testament, is about the return of Jesus. What is amazing is that the Gog and Magog of Ezekiel (Islamic Countries surrounding Israel to the north, south and east) cross reference to Chapt 20 of Revelation of the Bible. In Revelation, armies from Islamic areas that dispise the Jews (Gog and Magog) swarm the country and surround the city of saints (John, the writer of the vision, would interpret this to mean Jerusalem). After God intervenes and destroys these armies, in the next scene of the prophecy of Revelation is the Great White Throne judgement. It would appear ….that Jesus comes to judge the living and the dead. The scriptures tell us so.

    Jesus IS prophecized to return in THIS Generation as the events of Ezekiel 37 plus have already started. Jesus comes to judge the living and the dead. Only those (people of all races including folks from the areas of Gog and Magog) who have turned to Jesus for salvation, will be saved.

    Seek Jesus, seek salvation. Just pray to Jesus for His help in this matter. If you are a Christian, pray that others around you will be saved. The moment is urgent. There is VERY LITTLE TIME left.

    PS. This is NOT about fear. With salvation, Jesus gives us a new life. One oriented toward love of God, love of one another, and a focus on doing the right things in our lives for ourselves and others. Those who choose Jesus, will become part of God’s Kingdom. Those who reject Him, will be denied a place. With salvation, comes a wonderful present from God: a world that focuses on love, peace, and blessings (that we give and receive). Why: everyone God’s Kingdom are just trying to love and help each other. That’s God’s vision for each of us.



    Simply read these verses and you will have to conclude that this is the case…

    Ezekiel 38:16 …and you will come up against My people Israel like a cloud to cover the land. It shall come about in the last days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I am sanctified through you before their eyes, O Gog.”

    38:23 “I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the LORD.”

    39:6-7 “And I will send fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the coastlands in safety; and they will know that I am the LORD. “My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

    39:13 “Even all the people of the land will bury them; and it will be to their renown on the day that I glorify Myself,” declares the Lord GOD.

    39:7 “My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

    39:21-22 “And I will set My glory among the nations; and all the nations will see My judgment which I have executed and My hand which I have laid on them. “And the house of Israel will know that I am the LORD their God from that day onward.

    39:25 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Now I will restore the fortunes of Jacob and have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name. 26 “They will forget their disgrace and all their treachery which they perpetrated against Me, when they live securely on their own land with no one to make them afraid.

    39:27 “When I bring them back from the peoples and gather them from the lands of their enemies, then I shall be sanctified through them in the sight of the many nations. 28 “Then they will know that I am the LORD their God because I made them go into exile among the nations, and then gathered them again to their own land; and I will leave none of them there any longer.

    39:29 “I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,” declares the Lord GOD.
