Ezekiel 38: For those who have ears to hear…

end timeRecently the Middle East has had several major shifts in political alliances. The most recent and in my opinion the most alarming is the one that involves Turkey. Turkey has been an ally of Israel for years, but suddenly she has turned her  back on Israel and looked to Iran. Turkey’s population is almost 100% Moslem, but unlike Iran it is not under Sharia law. Turkey has looked to the west and has attempted the precarious balancing act of being westernized and also Islamic. As of this post it appears that the balance has tipped in favor of Islam. It seems to me that the players in the Ezekiel prophecy are on the stage and the curtain is going up. It’s easy to miss prophetic alignments like this while other horrific incidents like the Fort Hood massacre/terrorist act/jihad, are going on right here in America. When I look at what is happening in the Middle East I am greatly alarmed. I have written about this coming war since the inception of this Blog and it would appear that Israel is now completely surrounded by hostile nations. Even Jordan and Egypt, both of whom have peace treaties with Israel have backed away in recent days. King Abdullah, of Jordan has stated repeatedly in grave warnings that unless there is peace between Israel and the Palestinians there will be war. With Mahmoud Abbas stepping down from the Palestinian leadership, there is now no one to negotiate a peace treaty with. I would say that the situation, in the Middle East is the gravest that I have seen it.

Hezbollah announced that it now has rockets that can reach Tel Aviv. Iran continues to push toward its first nuclear bomb and the U.N dithers. Syria continues to be Iran’s proxy in the region which funnels arms to Hezbollah. Last week Israel intercepted a ship laden with arms that was marked for Hezbollah. They are arming, preparing for war. When the time is right it will happen. Soon? In the spring? I don’t know. But I will say this, for those who have ears to hear, the prophecy of Ezekiel is looming in front of us. The nations that are listed in that prophecy, that was written 2600 years ago are lining up. Unlike Nostradamus and the History channels portrayal of end times, this is real. As I watched some of the Nostradamus Affect, last night on the History Channel, one of the talking heads warned about taking Bible prophecy to literally and trying to interpret those prophecies in modern times, by tying them to current political events. I take umbrage in that statement because the whole point of prophecy is to call out, a priori, what will happen! The prophecy of the Ezekiel war has never been fulfilled. It would appear to me that if we can not understand prophecy, that if it is just some ravings of madmen that no longer applies to our world then why does the Bible contain so much of it? If we dismiss it then we might as well dismiss the rest of the book. That line of thinking is a slippery slope….

To close todays’ post, prophecy is what separates the Bible form any other book on the planet. The prophecies have great specificity and they are 100% accurate. They show that there is someone – the God of the Bible – that is outside our space-time domain and can call out events before they happen. While some prophecy has remained unfulfilled for millenia and others have been sealed up until the time of the end, it does negate its validity. For those who have ears to hear prophecy is a lifeline, an assurance that as when we see these things begin to happen out hope. our redemption cannot be far off. Maranatha!

  1. Don’t don’t the prophecies of the Word!

    I’ve been reading Isaiah, and he prophecied about Cyrus hundreds of years before he let the Isrealits go back to their land. He was amazed that he was in the prophecy by name! Also Isaiah 53 prophecies about Jesus and they match up exactly with the gospels! WOW!

    The other prophets, Daniel, Ezekiel, and Hosea all had a consistent message from G-d despite being writtn by different authors at prsuumably different times. though these prophets were somewhat close chronologically i find it hard to believe they could craft the same message together at the same time. especially since daniel was in babylon and ezekiel was in jerusalem.

    don’t doubt the prophecies, they will come true some time.

  2. Hi Lynn,

    Right on brother! In some 30 years of studying the Bible, I have never been more excited, and sensed such an urgency as I do right now. WE MUST pay attention to the prophets of the Bible, or be swept away in the great deception even now enveloping this world.

    Prophecy is what sets the Bible apart from all other purported “Holy” books. Even so, come Lord Jesus!

    Marnatha, indeed!

  4. There is maybe one war the Bible prophesies about that may come prior to Ezekiel war. There is a book called Isralistine by Bill Salus. He points out that the Word days, “Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates to take plunder and to take boot, to stretch out your hand againt the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.’ Sheba, Dedan the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder.” Ezek 38;10-13 It says that Israel will dwell safely without walls and will be wealthy. Right now, there is a wall dividing Jerusalem, so there are walls. He is suggesting a war first from Psalm 83 of the surrounding nations forming a confederacy. Lebanon, Syria,Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. Perhaps because of support from Iran, these nations will attack Israel, Israel will defeat them, enlarge her borders, and become a wealthy nation. Iran will be furious because their help didn’t win them the war, so they will have more reason to attack Israel. Russia has always wanted land in the Middle East because of the oil reserves. Because of the land Israel will claim, Israel will have the wealth that Russia wants. This will begin the coalition that attacks in the Ezekiel war. How much time is there between Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38? There is no way of knowing, only that Israel will dwell safely without walls. Apparently, the victory they have over their neighbors makes them feel secure enough to tear down walls that have protected them. Anyway, it’s all just on the horizon, however it plays out.
