Ezekiel 38

This is where we get to the ‘nuts and bolts’ of Israel’s salvation, the details. Ezekiel 36 and 37 gave the overview. Ezekiel 38 and 39 give the how and when – and Ezekiel’s Fire.

Up to now, it has all been peace and roses. Ezekiel 36 and 37 did not dwell on the difficulty surrounding the salvation of Israel – although, we had a hint of something difficult here:

31 Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good; and you will [a]loathe yourselves in your own sight, for your iniquities and your abominations.

Ezekiel 36:31

And, for many of us who come to Christ, it can take some truly agonizing events to bring us to the point where we realize that there’s no way out, except through Jesus. This is what I believe chapters 38 and 39 are describing. God is taking Israel to that point where it is no longer possible to resist acknowledging Jesus as their Messiah, Lord and Savior.

Let’s begin.

Gog And Magog

1 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, [a]the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, [b]Ethiopia, and [c]Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.

Ezekiel 38:1-6

And It’s Not The One In Revelation

Now, let’s pause here to address some rather common questions that pop up when talking about Gog and Magog. The first one is this:

Since we see Gog and Magog mentioned, is this the same situation described in Revelation 20?

Well, let’s read what Revelation 20 says about Gog and Magog:

Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.

Revelation 20:7-9

Of course, we can see some superficial similarities between this account in Revelation 20 and Ezekiel 38. For instance, we have the inclusion of these rather unique names, Gog and Magog. And, we have fire coming down upon them, which is a lot like what we see in Ezekiel 39. Of course, the similarities actually aren’t important. It’s the differences that we need to look for.

For instance, the account in Revelation 20 is at the END of the Millennium.

How much time is there between the end of the Millennium and the Great White Throne Judgment?

Zero. Nada. Zilch.

After the coming of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 and 39, we’ll see that there is quite a bit of time described after this army is destroyed. Years of time.

Is the army in Revelation 20 the same as the army in Ezekiel 38?

No they are NOT the same. The army in Revelation 20 is everyone. The army in Ezekiel 38 is drawn from a select number of Muslim nations.

It really bothers me that so many have been taken in by the idea that the events in Ezekiel 38 and 39 are the same as Revelation 20 – just because they see the names Gog and Magog in both places. This shows a tremendous lack of discernment, and I do not want you to fall for such foolishness.

Identifying Gog And Magog – Iran Is The Key

Now, the OTHER big question that has arisen is the identity of Gog and Magog.

Who ARE these people with such a strange name?

We actually have two competing theories:

  • Russia
  • Turkey

In both cases, Gog would be either the government or the leader of that government. And Magog would be the land that this government controls.

Until now, we have assumed that Russia would be the prime candidate for Gog and Magog. And, we certainly see that Russia has the ability and motivation to take on this role.

However, Turkey has begun to rear it’s ugly head a bit. It seems to be making a play for leadership of the Muslim world and may be trying to recreate the Ottoman Empire. It’s ability to do so is very much in question, and I find it a little hard to believe that they will be able to fulfill their dreams of empire.

We will have to see.

As of this moment, the prime contender for the role of Gog and Magog is still Russia. And, events are shaping up to keep Russia in that role, so we will assume that Russia continues on course to fulfill this. But, should the situation change, we will certainly see it in time. So, there should be no worry about getting the identity of Gog and Magog wrong.

Just remember that a key identifier of Gog and Magog is Iran. Iran is listed as a part of this army because of this name:

Persia

Yes, there are other names listed, and we will certainly see them when Gog and Magog occurs. But, the easiest one to see will always be Iran.

Furthermore, we know that this huge army will require alliances to be made – alliances with Gog. So, watch Iran. Whoever Iran enters an alliance with, that will ALWAYS be a prime candidate for Gog. And, we will get confirmation when we see a massive army with Iran involved, getting ready to attack Israel.

For now, Persia (aka, Iran) is now in a growing alliance with Russia. And, it appears that this alliance will grow even stronger. So, we need to assume – for the moment – that Gog is the Russian government and the country of Russia is Magog.

Russia And The CSTO

That being the case, there is an interesting organization that I want you to pay attention to:

Collective Security Treaty Organization

The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO; Russian: Организация Договора о Коллективной Безопасности, Organizatsiya Dogovora o Kollektivnoy Bezopasnosti, ODKB) is an intergovernmental military alliance, acting as counterpart to the NATO alliance, which was signed on 15 May 1992. In 1992, six post-Soviet states belonging to the Commonwealth of Independent States—Russia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan—signed the Collective Security Treaty (also referred to as the “Tashkent Pact” or “Tashkent Treaty”). Three other post-Soviet states—Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Georgia—signed the next year and the treaty took effect in 1994. Five years later, six of the nine—all but Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Uzbekistan—agreed to renew the treaty for five more years, and in 2002 those six agreed to create the Collective Security Treaty Organization as a military alliance. Uzbekistan rejoined the CSTO in 2006 but withdrew in 2012.

In May 2007 the CSTO secretary-general Nikolai Bordyuzha suggested Iran could join the CSTO saying, “The CSTO is an open organization. If Iran applies in accordance with our charter, we will consider the application.” If Iran joined it would be the first state outside the former Soviet Union to become a member of the organization.

Wikipedia

You will notice that Iran is interested in joining the CSTO, and the CSTO is cautiously interested in Iran joining. In fact, I am sure that recent developments between the US and Russia will make this process move more quickly.

Just pay attention whenever the CSTO is mentioned. They aren’t talked about very often in the mainstream media. So, if they DO start mentioning them, you know that something is happening.

The Rest Of The Army

Who are the rest of the members of this vast army?

Well, we’ve already identified Persia as Iran. So, we are left with figuring out who Rosh, Meshech, Tubal, Cush, Put, Gomer, and the house of Togarmah.

Cush is pretty easy. Cush was the son of Ham, and Ham was one of the three sons of Noah. The children of Cush settled in Sub-Saharan Africa. And, since there seems to be a fairly strong Muslim element to this army, a key player to look for would be Sudan, Djibouti and Somalia. But, we could also see Niger and any other African country with an Islamic population in the majority.

Put was also a son of Ham, but his children didn’t make it as far as those of Cush. Today, we believe that Put is modern day Libya. Right now, it’s pretty much a failed state, after the US destroyed it. But, it could be put back together with the help of the CSTO. In fact, if I was Russia, I would do that to gain influence in North Africa and act as a counterbalance to NATO and the US.

Rosh – And The Rest

Rosh is another interesting addition. In the King James version, Ezekiel 38:2 is translated THIS way:

Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

Ezekiel 38:2 (KJV)

What’s the difference?

It’s the word chief – or, more specifically, the Hebrew word rosh. And, as a moderate speaker of Hebrew, I can say that the King James Version gets it wrong. The King James claims that the Hebrew word rosh is an adjective, but Hebrew is very specific when it comes to adjectives, unlike English. If rosh was supposed to be an adjective, the Hebrew for chief prince would be:

נשיא ראשי

But, the prophet Ezekiel wrote it like this:

נשיא ראש

Do you see the difference?

Yeah, it’s this character:

י

That’s a yood, and it should appear at the end of rosh (Hebrew is written right-to-left), if it was a modifier of nasi (prince). Also, nasi (pronounced nah-SEE) ALREADY means chief prince. In fact, it’s the word used in Israel to indicate the President. Obama is the nasi of America. Putin is the nasi of Russia.

Hmmmm… Putin, the nasi of Russia…

Could he be Gog?

We’ll find out when the time comes.

(I wasn’t originally going to give you a Hebrew lesson,
but I had forgotten this bit of controversy with the KJV
and felt the need to discuss it.
)

The word rosh is obviously a proper noun – meaning, it’s a name – and, it fits very nicely with the original name for the Ukraine – Rus. (Hebrew is very malleable in terms of pronunciation.)

Wikipedia has an interesting article that talks about the Rus name, and indicates that the earliest written documents refer to the Ukrainians as… Rhos.

Curiouser and curiouser.

So, why isn’t the Ukraine called Rus?

Well, until the 19th century, they WERE called Rus. But, they lost their ideological battle with their stronger neighbor to the north… and, well… I strongly suspect that being called the Ukraine is preferable to being tortured to death. (But, that’s just me.)

Here’s an interesting article on the subject from Ukrainian Week:

Where Did “Ukraine” Come From?
http://ukrainianweek.com/History/51842

For more history on Kievan-Rus, Wikipedia has an interesting article:

Kievan Rus
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27

And, if that’s not enough history for you, here’s this:

The Rus People
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rus%27_people

To lighten up the discussion a little and give you more historical background, here’s John Green and Crash Course:

Russia, the Kievan Rus, and the Mongols: Crash Course World History #20

Shortlink: http://youtu.be/etmRI2_9Q_A

There are quite a few theories surrounding the identity of Meshech and Tubal, and you can see them in Wikipedia:

Tubal
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tubal

Meshech
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meshech

The attempt to identify Gomer and Togarmah are also interesting. The sound of those two names is remarkably similar to the sound of the word, Germany. Of course, that is not what the Germans call themselves. So, I’m not sure that we can place too much significance to sound of the word Germany, which is better referred to as:

Deutschland

It’s hard to see how Deutschland would join Gog and Magog, right now. But, our present time is so crazy, that an even crazier future is well within the realm of possibility.

Anyway, here are the Wikipedia entries for Gomer and Togarmah, if you want to do your own research on the issue:

Gomer
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gomer

Togarmah
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Togarmah

note: By the way, my links to Wikipedia are not an endorsement of that website. But, it does seem to be relatively accurate and a good starting place for a more detailed research. I do not rely on Wikipedia entries, and you probably shouldn’t either.

Okay, all of that has brought us to the end of verse six. Let’s continue with verse seven:

“Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them.

Ezekiel 38:7

Hmmm… Gog is a ‘guard’.

Maybe they’re able to block the UN Security Council?

Or, maybe the Russians use the threat of their nuclear weapons to keep other nations from attacking this army.

Russia certainly can, and it is logical to assume that they would make such threats in defense of the CSTO and/or the Eurasian Economic Union.

Matching Ezekiel 38 With Ezekiel 36

After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely.

Ezekiel 38:8

Notice the language here. Let’s compare portions of that verse with what we see in Ezekiel 36.

Ezekiel 38 says:

…gathered from many people

Ezekiel 36 says:

24 For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land.

Ezekiel 36:24

That’s a match, so let’s keep going.

Ezekiel 38 says:

on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate

Ezekiel 36 says:

therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God! Thus says the Lord God to the mountains, the hills, the [a]rivers, the valleys, the desolate wastes, and the cities that have been forsaken, which became plunder and mockery to the rest of the nations all around—

Ezekiel 36:4

That is ALSO a match. So, let’s look at a third possible match.

Ezekiel 38 says:

…they shall dwell securely

Ezekiel 36 says:

28 Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.

Ezekiel 36:28

Any group of people that God refers to as ‘my people’ and that He will be their God… well …you will live VERY securely. In fact, all of Ezekiel 36 speaks of a prosperity that can only come from security.

So, I call this a match, too.

Israel Lives Securely

Okay, I think that you see the picture. The question in my mind is whether Israel dwells securely, right now. I guess that it depends on how you define securely.

If ‘securely’ means confidently without worry about threats to their existence, then I think that the answer is yes. They certainly DO live confidently, right now. The only threat to their existence – right now – is Iran. And that threat is somewhat theoretical, at the moment. And, they believe that they can deal with that threat, when the time comes.

This does not mean that Israel is happy with Iran’s nuclear program. However, Iran has had a surprisingly difficult time getting it operational. There have been numerous (ahem!) accidents. Yes… (ahem!) …accidents. It’s funny how those (ahem!) accidents seem to happen to the Iranian nuclear program. How (ahem!) unfortunate.

If ‘securely’ means without the need to maintain a standing army and without threat of terrorism, then the answer is no. If things continue the way that they are, right now, Israel will need her army for quite some time, and there is always a threat of terrorism.

As long as there are any Muslims running around in the world, there will ALWAYS be a threat of terrorism against Israel. And, that leads me to believe that maybe the threat of terrorism shouldn’t be a part of our consideration.

Frankly, Islam will be a threat to EVERYONE until the Lord returns. Just look at the makeup of Gog and Magog. That army is FULL of Muslims.

So, I personally believe that we can say that Israel lives securely, even though there is a threat of terrorism. At the very least, I think that we should consider that Israel may have enough security right now, to fulfill the ‘requirement’ of verse eight. We’ll see what happens.

Gog And Magog Will Be A Surprise Attack

You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”

Ezekiel 38:9

This will be a quick and sharp, surprise attack. This makes me wonder if there will be any warning.

That bothers me, because it will be the gathering together of this army that will be your final warning. Once this army begins its attack, you may only have a few hours before effects of the solar flare hit us.

Watch Iran. When you see the Iranian army training with the Russian army – or the Turkish army – then, you know that the time is getting close.

However, recent events in Syria indicate that Iran is ALREADY training with Russia – on the battlefield. This isn’t quite the same as the training that you would need to coordinate the kind of army described in Ezekiel 38. But, it leads me to wonder if my former thoughts of having advance warning aren’t a little off.

I want to say that you’ll have plenty of warning before this attack – at least a year. But, with Iran working so closely with Russia in Syria, a lot of training and experience towards working together is already happening, right now.

Of course, the rest of the alliance will need to be put together, so maybe we shouldn’t worry too much.

Why Gog And Magog Comes

Now, the next four verses talk about WHY this alliance of Gog and Magog comes down to try and destroy Israel:

10 ‘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: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell [a]safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against 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. 13 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?’ ” ’

Ezekiel 38:10-13

Greed for plunder will be their motivation.

What would it be that they would hope to capture?

Oil and natural gas.

You have undoubtedly noticed what’s happening in Syria. All of that is due to a natural gas pipeline that Russia wanted to build from Iran, through Iraq and Syria, and to the Mediterranean Sea. America and the Persian Gulf Arabs did NOT want to see that pipeline built and wanted a different pipeline built.

In fact, what is happening in Ukraine may be part of that conflict. Ukraine has been a distraction for Russia, giving the US and NATO free rein in Syria.

You will also have noted by now, that Israel has discovered massive undersea natural gas reserves. When Israel starts selling that natural gas to Europe, this could damage Russia quite severely and act as another reason for Russia to attack Israel.

Also, Israel is the linchpin of the Middle East. It is one of the most strategic points for anyone who wants to dominate Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf. If Russia wants to take control of Middle East oil production, they will need to capture or destroy Israel.

And, what do the nations of the world do when this great army comes down?

Hang back and whine in shock and dismay – but, do nothing.

The US Dramatically Weakened Or Destroyed

Now, I find it interesting that the rest of the world does nothing about this. At the very least, this tells me that the United States has been destroyed or weakened so much that they CAN do nothing.

We can certainly see how the United States could be weakened. For instance, if the American economy was completely devastated, they would no longer be able to spend money on their military. Most of the US Army would be disbanded. The US Air Force would probably be grounded, and the US Navy would probably be pulled back to US territorial waters.

But, what about America’s nuclear weapons?

If we use the fall of the Soviet Union as an example, Russia never lost her nuclear deterrent. She never lost the ability to launch nuclear missiles at the US, or anyone else.

This means that the United States will need to fall even harder than the Soviet Union did, for Gog and Magog to successfully attack Israel. And, I do NOT know how the US could survive that. What happened in Russia during the fall of the Soviet Union was horrific. For America to fall in a way that she loses control of her nuclear weapons is… well …unimaginable.

That’s why I suspect that America will be attacked and destroyed.

How that attack succeeds will depend on whether America becomes an occupied country – or not. But, whatever the case, America will not be able – or willing – to threaten this vast army with nuclear weapons.

What About Israel’s Nuclear Weapons?

Of course, this brings up the issue of Israel’s purported stockpile of nuclear weapons. There has always been something of a question mark over that stockpile.

Do they actually HAVE any?

We don’t really know for sure. The evidence that we have of Israel’s nuclear program may be a very clever ruse to make us think that they DO have nuclear weapons.

Remember that the THREAT of nuclear weapons is as useful as HAVING nuclear weapons. To put it another way, a threat is much cheaper than the weapon, itself – especially if your ethics would never allow you to use such weapons.

‘To save a life’ is a core principle of Judaism, and even though the government of Israel is very secular – they are still influenced by this ethic. The western media never report on the soul-searching that goes on when Israelis are forced to kill Arabs in self-defense. The biggest critics of Israel are Israelis themselves.

But, let’s assume that Israel actually has nuclear warheads for their Jericho III missiles.

How would Israel lose its nuclear weapons capability?

By using it.

If Israel used a nuclear weapon against… say …Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the rest of the world would demand that Israel give up her nuclear weapons. Of course, Israel would NOT give up her nuclear weapons without security guarantees.

America might offer those guarantees in the form of a large military presence in the Middle East – in Israel, Jordan and even Lebanon and Syria. Or, Russia might actually offer those guarantees – and eventually break them.

If America is the one to extend the necessary security guarantees, then we could envision the US going through a massive economic catastrophe, that would make her no longer able to maintain the military bases required for those security guarantees. And, this would leave Israel defenseless.

On the other hand, Moscow’s growing influence might impose a Pax Russiae upon the Middle East. Russia might keep Iran from attacking Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf Arabs might be so terrified of Russia that they stop funding terrorism in Israel and abroad.

As I always say in such situations:

We’ll see.

Gog Attacks Because Israel Is Vulnerable

Let’s continue with verse fourteen:

14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it?

Ezekiel 38:14

Yup. They’ll see a confident and defenseless Israel, and won’t be able to hold themselves back from attacking.

By the way, the other possibility is that the Russians discover where Israel’s nuclear weapons are located and successfully destroys them. And, that might even include the destruction of Israel’s command and control system via EMP, nuclear strike, or both.

God Demonstrates His Power

Then, they attack:

15 Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. 16 You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.”

Ezekiel 38:15-16

God is going to lure this vast army down, so that God can demonstrate His power.

In fact, if you sit down and consider the situation that we are in… if you consider how close we are to the coming of the Antichrist – and the world’s acceptance of his Satanic reign… If you consider all that… Ask yourself about God.

Doesn’t God always give a warning?

Doesn’t He give people a chance to see Him – and to repent – before judgment comes?

I believe that God is going to use this opportunity to proclaim Himself to the world, so that they will be without excuse, when they reject God and turn towards the Antichrist. And, all who chose to follow foolish theories such as the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie, will know that they were wrong, and hopefully repent. Hopefully.

Let’s continue with the next verse:

17 Thus says the Lord God: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?

Ezekiel 38:17

Interesting. This verse actually appears to be prophesying about people reading this verse! Of course, Ezekiel isn’t the only prophet to speak of this moment in time. Although, none of them have gone as far as to mention the names ‘Gog’ and ‘Magog’.

God Knocks Everything Down

18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face.

Ezekiel 38:18

Gog will come down, and then…

19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great [a]earthquake in the land of Israel, 20 so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’

Ezekiel 38:19-20

There will be a titanic earthquake and EVERYTHING will fall down. EVERYTHING.

If you are in Israel, or the surrounding area, when you see a huge army come down that looks like what we’re talking about… when you see them start to get close…

GET OUT OF THE HOUSE and STAY out of the house! Go camping!

EVERYTHING standing is going to fall down. EVERYTHING.

(at least everything in the vicinity of this army)

And, this is where we bring in Isaiah 30:

25 There will be on every high mountain
And on every high hill
Rivers and streams of waters,
In the day of the great slaughter,
When the towers fall.
26 Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun,
And the light of the sun will be sevenfold,
As the light of seven days,
In the day that the Lord binds up the bruise of His people
And heals the stroke of their wound.

Isaiah 30:25-26

Both Ezekiel 38:19-20 and Isaiah 30:25-26 speak about the exact same moment in time, and EVERYTHING will be knocked down.

The Soldiers Of Gog And Magog Kill Each Other

And then, Ezekiel’s Fire will come, and we will look at that in Ezekiel 39. But, let’s finish Ezekiel 38, first:

21 I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

Ezekiel 38:21

There is a reason why this army will start to turn on each other. And, I believe that the reason lies with the next verse:

22 And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

Ezekiel 38:22

This will terrify this massive army, and they will try to run away. Of course, when a massive group like that starts running away, the better word to use would be stampede. And, stampedes are mindless and full of fear.

Think about the individual soldiers involved. They will be terrified and pushing their vehicles to their maximum, driving to fast, having flat tires, traffic accidents, etc. Very quickly, you’ll have vehicles break down.

What happens when a vehicle breaks down, during a rush like this?

Everything stops.

Unfortunately, just because traffic has stopped, the feelings of terror haven’t. If you thought road rage during rush hour was bad, this will be a million times worse.

What happens to people when they are terrified and desperately running away, and then run smack-dab into a blockage that keeps them from escaping what they consider to be certain death?

They get really, REALLY upset.

What happens when someone THAT upset has a gun?

They use the gun to unblock the way out.

What happens if the people you are shooting at also have guns and are really upset?

They shoot back.

And… onand on.

They will literally kill each other, and the survivors will die of disease. It will be truly awful.

Let me also add one more twist to this story.

What do you think would happen when the Solar Flare, Ezekiel’s Fire lights up the sky?

They might know (or have been told) that their vehicles would stop working within a VERY short amount of time – since the most dangerous part of a solar flare is the CME, or Coronal Mass Ejection, which would arrive minutes or hours AFTER the solar flare begins. Anyone who understands the danger would immediately turn around and try to get home as fast as possible – and shoot ANYONE who gets in the way.

Volcanoes – Big Ones

One other point to mention is that a large part of this army looks like it will be destroyed in or around the Golan Heights. In fact, I would venture to say that they are STUCK on the Golan Heights.

The Golan is chock full of dormant volcanoes. If you walk around the Golan and places nearby, you’ll see lots of dark, volcanic rock, and many of the older buildings have been made with it. The Jerusalem hills have no such volcanic rock.

This means that the Golan is going to blow up, and take this massive army with it.

God Will Be Glorified

23 Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” ’

Ezekiel 38:23

In the process of all this… because it will happen in the exact way that the Lord describes here …God will be glorified.

My hope is that you will have prepared for all this and survive Ezekiel’s Fire and the incredible destruction that follows in its wake.

[NEXT: Ezekiel 39]
