Islamic Leaders 

In Prophecy Update Number 35 we continued our exposition of Ezekiel 37:1 that began some four months ago in June, finishing with the last verse in chapter 38.  This exposition will continue in chapter 39.

Ezekiel 39:1 [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:

In Prophecy Updates 27 through 29 the 600 B.C. location where Meshech and Tubal’s descendants were settled was thoroughly covered, and a case was made to prove that Gog is most likely to come out of Syria.  The location of Magog’s descendants was also outlined in these Prophecy Updates.  Once again, we are advised that Gog is the enemy of God.

Ezekiel 39:2  [2] 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:

In the time frame this book was written, the expression “the north parts,” was taken to mean what we identify today as Syria and Lebanon.  It is important to understand that God will do this without the help of man.  He says: I will turn, I will cause, and I will bring.  What he is about to unleash is the greatest geological upheaval Israel has known up to that time.  It will destroy most of Gog’s mighty horde (See Birth Pangs 15 and 16 with their associated diagrams).

Ezekiel 39:3 [3]  And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

This verse paints a picture of men abandoning their weapons in horrifying fear.  The earthquakes and volcanic holocaust will so frighten the men of war that all thought of combat will be erased from their minds.  They will drop their weapons as they flee for their lives.

Ezekiel 39:4  [4] 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.

There won’t be any flesh left to pick on those soldiers of Gog caught in the Jordan Valley from the Gulf of Aqabah to the entrance of the Jezreel Valley (See Birth Pangs 15 and 16 with their associated diagrams).  But there will be gobs of flesh on the bones found in interior hills of Judea, Samaria, and Galilee.

Ezekiel 39:5  [5] Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.

Verse 5 reaffirms the principle of “I will” in verses 2 and 3.  It confirms there is no way all this can be changed.  Why?  “For I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.  We have short-changed the power of God ever since man began to develop weapons of massive destruction.  I assure you that, by the end of the terror of the Tribulation Period, we will have seen how puny what we have developed is in comparison to God’s mighty arsenal.

Even though I have traveled all across the globe warning people that the coming of the Lord was approaching, it is still amazing to see it all nearing a mighty conclusion.  The goal of all Islamic leaders, especially since May of 1948, has been to reclaim ALL the land from Dan to Beersheva, the Biblical description of what is considered Israel.  They have attempted, through terrorism, for more than fifty years to get back ALL the West Bank, and ALL the Golan Heights back into their possession.  How?  They have hoped the terrorist activities would lead Israel to finally make such a concession.  Why?  Militarily, they must succeed in dividing Israel by driving to the Mediterranean.

With ALL of the West Bank under their control, then the very narrow coastal strip, from Lebanon to the Gaza Strip, can be breached by the Palestinians from within the West Bank. (See Prophecy Updates 1, 2, and 3 in Archive above from last January and February).  With the Golan Heights back under Syrian control a blitzkrieg attack, of lightning proportions, can be launched southward down the Jordan River bank. (See Prophecy Updates 8 through 13).

The U.S. will be eminently successful in breaking the back of the worldwide terrorist network made up of fundamental Islamic extremists. It will lead some 10 Islamic nations to realize that terrorism will not cause Israel to give back ALL the land from Dan to Beersheva, which has always been their objective.  They want the Jews OUT OF ISRAEL!  So they will wield a new plan to meet their objective.  They will meet behind closed doors over the coming months among themselves, and with their terrorist cells.  It will be decided to cease all Islamic terrorist activity for a period of time sufficient to lull Israel, and the free world, into a false sense of security.  The terrorists will be told of a future Jihad as soon as Israel begins to feel secure.  One might say:  Israel will never be led into feeling secure.

But, if we had been oppressed, afflicted, hated, persecuted, prosecuted, and killed by the millions, as they have for some 2000 years, as well as having been under constant daily fear, for the last 53 years, of being blown up or shot by terrorists, and then if suddenly it all ended, believe me, after a couple of years we would believe it was all over.  I look for such a peace to suddenly come to Israel.

The current off again, on again, gone again character of negotiation will continue for some time, but I believe that suddenly, probably next year, the terrorist activity will cease, and a short period of false peace will come to the Middle East.  The next years are going to be the most eventful economically, politically, militarily, meteorologically, and geologically unstable period of time the world has ever known.

A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:30: And I will show a token, a sign and wonder in the visible arch of the sky where the clouds move and throughout all the earth, in the fields, in the country, in the wilderness and it will have the appearance of blood, along with a burning, hot flaming fire, with columns of cloudy dust, smoke and vapor.

A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:31: The brilliant sun, from the rising of the sun in the east to the sun rays in the arch ways of the sky, will be changed into darkness, as if it were night and the moon will take on the appearance of blood before the great and noble, fearful and terrible day in which Jehovah, the self-Existing One, the Eternal Lord shall come.

A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:19: And I will bring forth a rare event so extraordinary, it will inspire wonder, for it will be in the elevated area of the sky and a token of these events, will be throughout the entire regions under the surface of the soil, of all the land of the world, for it will be a visible wonder of flowing substance like blood, of flashes of lightening and fire, with a mist of smoke.

A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:20: The rising of the sun in the east and the rays of daily light will become as an outlining shadow and the bright shining moon, will appear to be a blood red color, before that mighty and visible day in which the One in supreme authority will come.
