Ezekiel 38

My personal, real, secret diary... is only for me to read. Because I still want to share my experiences with you, here's my online diary.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord

shall punish the host of the high ones that are on

high, (son's of God) and the kings of the earth upon

the earth (Nephilim).

And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners

are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the

prison, and after many days shall they be VISITED 

 

 

Isaiah 24: 20p,21-22KJV

The more I study this topic, the more proof I get for my belief. For the past couple weeks I haven’t read one scripture that contradicts my belief. If I am confused or in denial or veiled….I really want to be shown where, with a scripture. This means a lot to me. The following paragraph; I will summarize my beliefs, then explain in this study with scripture as to why I believe what I believe.

I don’t believe Ezekiel 38 is the battle of Armageddon, although I do believe this war includes the “Army of Locusts”

It occurs: After the abomination that causes desolate

After the Anti-Christ is revealed

After Israel has become like the Garden of Eden during the peace covenant,

During the destroying of the beast and false prophet

During the raising the Men of Old (Babylonians/Chaldeans) from the dead to fight in this war and to be judged for the second death Habakkuk 1:5, 8 Habakkuk 2:3 Joel 3:2 Joel 3:12 (raising from dead and judging)

During the 2 Witnesses were killed and rose from the dead

Immediately before the Gog and Mogog war I believe:

The elect are raised from the dead and we who are left are gathered to be with Jesus in the air, to shut the door behind us until indignation takes its course, for our purification and wedding. Joel 2:16

This is when the Israelites/Judea (two sticks that became one) dry bones are raised with skin and breath to go back to Israel so they can redeem themselves and so God can prove to them before their very eyes that He is their God and they are His people. Joel 2:32

Please just try to keep on open mind so at least you can understand where I’m coming from with all this I’ve been trying to explain for months. Please? Whenever you read this cursive font, it’s me typing.

Ezekiel 36:35
They will say, "This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited."

The reason I included the above and below scriptures is because it’s one of the many reasons I believe that Joel’s Army of Locusts; is speaking of the same exact war; Gog and Magog. I also believe that Israel is ‘like the Garden of Eden’ because the Anti-Christ signed the peace covenant 3/2 years prior.

Joel 2 v 3

An Army of Locusts

A fire consumes before them And behind them a flame burns. The land is like the garden of Eden before them But a desolate wilderness behind them, And nothing at all escapes them.4Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like war horses, so they run.…

Ezekiel 37:7

The Valley of Dry Bones

So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. 8And I looked, and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them.9Then He said to me, "Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life."'"…

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

The above verse is speaking of Judea/Israelites together as one stick that came from 2 sticks.

12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

Good one!! The above verse is speaking of raising the Jews from the dead and then send them directly to Israel to witness the Gog and Magog War that is about to occur. So they can redeem themselves, pick up dead bodies and weapons for 7 months, know that they are His people and God is their God. I don’t want to confuse you with a lot of cross references but I just would like to prove my point that Joel is speaking of the same war, that’s important. So Cross Reference from Ezekiel to Joel:

 

Joel 2 v 30

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

The ‘remnant whom the Lord will call” are the Jews. He call them to raise from the dead and put their bones back together and sent them to Israel.

Joel 3

1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,

I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

“All the Nations” He’s not kidding, at that time He will raise ALL the dead. These are the “Chaldeans, Babylonians” etc. A “mighty men of old, Ancient” They will destroy everything in their path on the way, with scorpions that torments for 5 months, with fire, etc.

13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

14 And shall put my spirit in you, (purified them, made them white) and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.

25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.

26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

Jeremiah 30:7, "Alas! for that day is great, There is none like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s distress, But he will be saved from it."

Ezekiel 38 v 1

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.

Every single person that teaches on this ~ that I have read or heard; teaches that Gog / Magog is strictly Russia and maybe China…. God did say ALL nations, but all nations including the dead. Check out Strong Concordance on the Hebrew meaning:

 
Strong Concordance
 
  • Gog = "mountain"
    

 

  • Land of Magog = Sheol, land without return, (under) world

  • Mesech or Meshech = "drawing out"

  • Tubal = "thou shall be brought"

Can’t say that didn’t raise your eyebrows???

Ezekiel 38

 

4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

 

Cross Reference

 

Ezekiel 29:3-4 - Speak, and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Pharaoh king of Egypt, O great monster who lies in the midst of his rivers, Who has said, 'My River is my own; I have made it for myself.' But I will put hooks in your jaws, And cause the fish of your rivers to stick to your scales; I will bring you up out of the midst of your rivers, And all the fish in your rivers will stick to your scales."

 

Job 41:1-2 - Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook, Or snare his tongue with a line which you lower? Can you put a reed through his nose, Or pierce his jaw with a hook?

 

God is bringing all the dead the Gog and Magog War, bringing them with hooks.

 

Ezekiel 38

6 Gomer, and all his bands; (complete with) the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

Stong Concordance

Gomer = "complete"

Togarmah = "thou will break her"

North =a hidden, that is, dark; used only of the north as a quarter (gloomy and unknown)

 

Jeremiah 4 is also speaking of Gog and Magog War, Must read that whole chapter. In the meantime I feel the need to Cross Reference again.

 

Jeremiah 4

6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.

The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.

27   For thus hath the Lord said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.

So Jeremiah confirming in Gods Words that Israel’s total destruction will still not make it a full end confirms that Chapter 4 is speaking of the War before Armageddon; Gog Magog

Ezekiel 38

 

8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

 

Latter = after part, end

   1a) end, issue, event

 

When God says ‘after many days thou shalt be visited’ meaning bring them out of the graves, or earth. Gather them back to the land of Israel (which by this time looks like the Garden of Eden since the Anti-Christ said ‘peace and safety and confirmed the covenant of peace) so all was well and safe….for a ‘time’.

 

Ezekiel 38 v 9

You will ascend,

If Gog is Russia, then how pray tell will they ‘ascend’ to Israel when they are North? Unless they’re ascending out of the earth?

 

Ezekiel 38 v 9

coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you."

 

Ezekiel 38:13

 

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

Sheba = "seven" or "an oath"

Dedan = "low country"

Tarshish or Tharshish = "yellow jasper" 
 

 

Ezekiel 38:14

 

Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?

 

Peace treaty

 

15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

 

Cross Reference Joel 2 (Army of Locusts)

4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.

Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

Cross Reference Jeremiah 4

13  Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.

16 Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah.

Did you sit up Jerold ;-) The Watchers. The ones that are locked up until Judgment Day. Today’s the Day. And how can that happen unless the evil dead is raised along WITH the elect?? The elect goes up over the clouds (to the place that he hath prepared) and the evil goes to the Holy Land under the clouds with fire before them and desolate land behind them (The underworld) And the Jews that got put back together by God will witness ALL this.

Jude 6

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Ezekiel 38:15

 

And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

16 Thus saith the Lord God; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?

17 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.

18 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

19  So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

20 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother.

22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

 

1) hail (lit. - pearls of God)

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:

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:

Leaving the ‘sixth part of thee’ I suppose for the Grand Finale? Armageddon.

And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

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.

 Okay so cross reference for the feast for the birds is very important to understand the timing of this. So we all agree that the War of Gog is before Armageddon and before God’s Wrath, correct?? The following verses is Jesus talking about the elect’s rapture.

Cross Reference

Defeat of the Beast and False Prophet
Revelation 19 v
17

 

Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, "Come, assemble for the great supper of God,18so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great."…

 

The above scripture reminds me of the only scripture in the bible that specifies Jesus as the “Sun of Righteousness” spelled it Sun with healing in His wings. I believe this is how and when we will be purified, and refined through the fire. Pretty cool stuff huh? It’s so rewarding when I study on my own. I am not persuaded right or left. I just don’t want to gamble with this knowledge. There’s WAY more false prophets than true!!!

 

Malachi 4:2

 

2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

 

Joel 2:16

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

The above scripture is the same chapter with the Locust Army and that’s when God says through Joel Get ready for wedding.

 

Ezekiel 39

5  Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.

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.

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.

8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

9  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.

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.

12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.

The Israelites had to redeem themselves in this manner.

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.

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.

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.

16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.

 

Those who are first will be last.....

 

 

Romans 2 9

 

Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

10

But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:


Rev 11

1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Habakkuk 2

2 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Revelation 11

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

I believe this is when we go also. Right after this, God’s wrath occurs. I also believe this is when he puts muscle, skin and breath into the Israelites (Judea and Israel as one because of the 2 sticks he put together)

13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

  1. Revelation 19:11 - Bible Gateway

...

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make.

Is Hybrid the Way Forward?
I was reviewing my personal finances recently, and I realized that a huge chunk of my income goes straight into my gas tank. I've been hearing a lot about hybrid cars lately, and I wondered if it might not be worth the investment. The problem is, I don't really know the first thing about hybrids.


I found a pretty extensive article on hybrid cars at HowStuffWorks.com, and if you're thinking of getting a hybrid then you should probably read this, too. It talks about the mechanics and technology, tells you how to drive a hybrid to maximize your gas mileage and provides a ton of other useful information. For example, did you know that keeping your speed constant boosts fuel efficiency?

Build a Website Fast
A friend spoke to me about my website today. His father runs a doctor's surgery and wants to introduce himself to patients online. He wanted to know if I knew a way to put together a website quickly and simply, even if you've never done it before.


As I am asked these questions more and more often, here's the answer: yes, the Do-It-Yourself home page from 1&1 is also suitable for the self-employed and small businesses. This video from 1&1 provides a good explanation.
