Tag Archive: Ezekiel 38


WHAT IF  

America were the largest of the ’10 missing tribes’

and the Antichrist was its leader

and he was working, behind the scenes w/ others to accomplish the Psalms 83 war* against the modern nation of ‘Israel’?

And what if,

in the midst of that attack,

his (personal, secret) allies attacked his homeland–(the Ezekiel 38 war**)?

Is it possible that this would happen?:

‘But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.’  (Daniel 11:44)

Is it possible that a narcissistic man, with power over a nuclear arsenal, who had been betrayed . . . might use those nukes to retaliate?

And what if the base of his enemies’ joint operation was in . . . Syria?  Could this be the result?

‘The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.’  (Isaiah 17:1)

By the way, I recently heard that Russia and China ARE moving into Syria to help them . . . (Gog and Gomer).

As the ‘fourth beast’ world empire rises, we will probably see several nations in the news:

  1. Russia–having invaded South Ossetia, Georgia, and Abkhazia
  2. United Kingdom/Great Britain–something related to the Olympics?
  3. India–unknown reason

If this scenario is correct, the Mark of the Beast could be rolled out soon.  After the Antichrist  ‘goes forth with great fury to destroy and utterly make away many’, the next thing he does is:

‘And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain . . . ‘  (Daniel 11:45)

This is where Revelation 13 picks up the story, and his three and a half year reign begins, from Jerusalem.

One more thing . . . the attack on his homeland (that presumably destroys Washington DC–and I believe also includes the destruction of NYC  [see Revelation 18]) would be what the Bible calls the ‘head’ that was ‘wounded to death’ and healed.

‘And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.’  (Revelation 13:3)

The destruction would not be complete however, because God WILL be glorified amongst the heathen, because of his response to the attack:

‘there shall be a great shaking in the land . . . 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.  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. 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. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.’  (Ezekiel 38:19-23)

(All of this is a matter of opinion and speculation.   Consider it prayerfully.   It could be all wrong, or partly wrong.  My belief, until now, has been that the Ezekiel 38 war would not take place until the end of the Tribulation.  I see this as an alternate possibility.)

*Psalm 83 players:

  • Edom = Palestinians and Southern Jordanians
  • Ishmaelites = Saudis, Arabs
  • Moab = Palestinians and Central Jordanians
  • Hagarenes = Egyptians
  • Gebal = Hezbollah, Lebanese
  • Ammon = Palestinians
  • Amalek = Arabs of Sinai Penninsula
  • Philistines = Hamas of Gaza Strip
  • Tyre = Hezbollah, Southern Lebanese
  • Assur = Syrians and Northern Iraquis

**Ezekiel 38 players:

From the North:

  • Magog = Russia
  • Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, Togarmah = Turkey

Gog = a man, or spirit/principality, that has authority over Russia and Turkey.  He will be at the head of this coalition.

From the East:

  • Persia = Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan

From the South:

  • Ethiopia = Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan

From the Southwest:

  • Libya

Spectators?:

Sheba, Dedan, Tarshish = ?

After having read the Word, BUT without having had time to pray about it and let it ‘simmer’ . . . here are my initial thoughts about the army described in Joel 2:

I believe that the opening of the sixth seal (Rev. 6:12-17) and the sixth trumpet (Rev. 9:14-21) are simultaneous.  It looks like Joel 2 is another perspective on the same event (and, unexpectedly, Ezekiel 38 & 39).

THE SIXTH TRUMPET: ‘SUPER SOLDIERS’ UNLEASHED?

If this is true, it may be the unleashing of what some call ‘super soldiers’ by the Antichrist’s (Daniel’s fourth beast’s) army.

Joel 2:2

“a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, [even] to the years of many generations.”

and

Joel 2:7-8

“They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and [when] they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.”

THEIR SMOKE DARKENS THE SUN, MOON, AND STARS

Notice Joel 2:10

“The earth shall quake before them*; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:”

*I interpret these things to happen AS A RESULT of them.

And Revelation 9:18

“By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.”

Again, I believe that the fire and smoke is what darkens the sun, moon and stars.

Again, Joel 2:31 says

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”

Matthew 24:29

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”

I believe Revelation 6:12-17 picks up where Revelation 9:19 and Joel 2:10 leave off–because, after Joel 2:10 comes The Day of The Lord.

Rev. 6:12-17″I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

_____________________________________________________________________________

In other words, I think THE CHRONOLOGY is this (you may want to read through it with your Bible, since I have not pasted all the verses here):

  • Revelation 9:14-19
  • Joel 2:2-10
  • Matthew 24:29, Mark 13:24-25
  • Revelation 6:12-17
  • Joel 2:11
  • (It looks like this also correlates with Ezekiel 38:1-17)

Then, the  story continues (as explained below):

  • Joel 2:12-17
  • Joel 2:18, Ezekiel 38:18-23, Revelation 16:17-21
  • Ezekiel 39:1-10
  • Joel 2:20
  • Ezekiel 39:11

also

  • Revelation 10:7, Matthew 24:27-31, Mark 13:26-27
  • Revelation 19:11-19

GOD’S PEOPLE REPENT

After this great army invades, the prophet Joel commands the people to repent and cry out to God (Joel 2:12-17)

______________________________________________________________________________

THE LORD WILL ARISE ON BEHALF OF HIS PEOPLE (THE DAY OF THE LORD)

“Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.”  (Joel 2:18)

 

DAY OF THE LORD PART 1: THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST FOR HIS PEOPLE

At the Lord’s return, He gathers His people to Him, before pouring out His wrath.

Revelation 10:7

“But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.”

Matthew 24:30-31

“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

Mark 13:26-27 “And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.”

 

DAY OF THE LORD PART 2: HE POURS OUT HIS WRATH UPON THE NATIONS = THE GREAT SUPPER OF GOD

Matthew 24:27-28

“For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”

Revelation 19:11-19

“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”  He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great. Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army.”

Remember who is gathered, hiding from the face of God in Rev. 6:15,

” . . . the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man . . . ”

Joel 2:11

“And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp [is] very great: for [he is] strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD [is] great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”

And, this may correlate with Ezekiel 38:18-23

“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 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; 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. 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. 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. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.”

It certainly seems that Joel 2:20

“But I will remove far off from you the northern [army], and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.”

and Ezekiel 39:11 are talking about the same thing:

“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.”

_____________________________________________________________________________

IT IS DONE!

Ezekiel 39:8

“Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this [is] the day whereof I have spoken.” Revelation 16:17-21

“The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.”

(This passage also seems to correlate with Ezekiel 38:18-23.)    _____________________________________________________________________________

If this interpretation is correct, then it seems that the seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven bowls must all happen simultaneously.Revelation 16:12-14  (& 16), the sixth BOWL, also seems to happen simultaneously with all of what is outlined above (the sixth SEAL and sixth TRUMPET):

“The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three evil  spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.”(“Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.”)

And, indeed, the next verse (Rev. 16:15) corresponds with the same outline of events:

“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

Also, as we have seen above, the seventh BOWL (Rev. 16:17-21) is the wrath of God, that seems to correlate with Ezekiel 38:18-23 where the Lord returns to battle the armies of the world.  This also seems to correlate pretty well with the seventh TRUMPET in Revelation 11:15:

“The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.”

First, a disclaimer: a lot of what I write is hard to hear.  If you are reading this, it is because God has brought you to my site.  If He has brought you here, it is because you are either strong enough to hear what I am saying . . . or hard-headed enough that you have to hear it this way, in order for God to get through to you.  There are other people out there, saying the same things, in gentler ways.  God could have directed you to them instead.  If you are here, you are here for a reason.

I was visiting the website of a friend and found a link to a vision by Michael Boldea Jr. I decided to read it, out of curiosity.  As I read, my spirit was moved– and even more so as I could see that the last part of the vision correlated with a vision that the Lord had given me a few days ago.

Afterwards, I  noticed that, on the side of the page, were links to about 30 or 40 visions.  Not knowing where to begin, I closed my eyes, said a quick prayer, and double clicked the mouse.  The name of the vision was ‘A Revelation‘ (and the first part of it pertained to Romania).   I had never read about this vision before, but what it said at the end was something that I wanted to share with you:

‘ “The sin of the great whore has spread throughout the world.  The stench of her sin has reached me and it will not be long until I will raise the whole Arab world, the Russians and other countries against her, that they may destroy her.” ‘

If you have read many of my posts, you know that this is the same message that God has been giving me to explain and reveal, as the events are playing out before us.  But this vision was twenty years ago!

Let me give you my interpretation:

‘the great whore’ (aka ‘the Whore of Babylon’ from the Bible book of Revelation) = the United States under the leadership of the ‘elite’ (the corrupt people who run the multinational corporations and lead our government–most of them being from wealthy and politically connected families [Rockefeller, Bush, etc.]–with links to Illuminati, Bohemian Grove rituals, Freemasons, etc.)

the whole Arab world = the Islamic coalition that is rising up out of the (soon to be) ashes of the current Middle East.  This coalition is primarily led by ‘radical Muslims’ of the Shia faction.  The names of their organizations include Al Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood.  What most people don’t realize is that many Muslim Brotherhood operatives are already present in America (CAIR and their allies).  Their goal is global jihad, and to bring America under Sharia Law.

Islam is not a religion!  It is a political-religious form of government.  In Islam there is NO ‘separation of church and state’.  Many people do not realize that when we remove the ten commandments as the cornerstone of our society, our laws will  no longer have a foundation.  (There has to be some basis for determining what is ‘right’ and what is ‘wrong’.)  This creates a vacuum that Sharia law will be quick to fill.

When we warn about Sharia law taking root in America, you have to understand that it is not as simple as it sounds.  It is a package deal.  Sharia in America means our (new) laws will not be based on God’s ten commandments, but on the teachings of Muhammad (which came straight from the devil himself). Look at law enforcement in Islamic nations if you want to see how this plays out . . . flogging, stoning, amputation, beheading, etc.

You might also want to do a bit of research as to what sort of activities are illegal under Sharia law . . . (which brings us to a seemingly universal law–if  you won’t exercise self control, you will find yourself  being controlled . . . let our lax and ‘tolerant’ society consider the implications . . . ).  Remember, under the Taliban administration music was not even allowed.  If America will not submit itself to the kind, just, merciful and loving leadership of God then we will find ourselves slaves to a very harsh master indeed!

For those of you who may be homosexual, and pride yourself on helping to dismantle the laws on which American society was founded–the ‘joke’ is on you.  For those radical feminists who have done much to undermine American culture–the ‘joke’ is on you too.

Radical feminists, homosexuals, and every other type of anarchist: you are unknowingly paving the way for Sharia law.  First  you do your part to destroy the basis of our current laws and Constitution, then the Islamists will follow behind you and insert their law into the void.  But don’t think you will have a place in the new Islamunist Amerika . . . look a little closer at Sharia law and you will find that homosexuals quickly receive the death penalty, and women . . . who out of men’s necessity are suffered to live . . . are stripped of their rights and covered from head to toe in black!  Don’t think it can happen here?

What is happening right now in the Middle East will be jumping across that vast ocean soon, and will be happening in our backyard!  In Oklahoma City, and in Michigan, skirmishes are already taking place.  Our enemies are here, and their fingers are on the trigger.  Watch what happens, as our economy continues to falter, then crumbles.

What does Russia have to do with it?  Understand that already Syria is a Russian proxy.  Russia has never ceased to be an enemy of the United States.  It benefits them that we think we are fighting someone else, while all the while they are the ones providing them material support.  Russia–Syria–Iran.  This is a tightly woven coalition of enemies.  But don’t forget that China is definitely part of the mix.

Doubt this vision?  Read Ezekiel 38 and keep in mind that ‘Israel’ refers to the ten tribes that, thousands of years ago, became a separate kingdom from ‘Judah’.  (The nation that, today, calls itself ‘Israel’ should technically be called ‘Judah’, because this is what God calls them.)  The descendants of the ten tribes that formed the Nation of Israel dispersed and migrated around the globe.  The easiest way to identify them today is to say ‘the Western Nations’.  Remember that even Ahmadinejad calls America ‘the great Satan’ and calls the country which calls itself Israel ‘the little Satan’.

With that in mind read Ezekiel 38.  This great war that is described in Ezekiel 38 will be brought by the Muslims to the Western nations.  This horrible war will be fought on our own soil.  Notice who the nations are that come against us–the Islamic confederation that is forming, and Russia.

A quick note: Not everyone from the Middle East is Arab–nor are the Arabs the primary aggressors against America.  Right now, in broad terms, the primary types of Muslim Middle Easterners are the Arabs (mostly Sunni Muslims) in the southern part of the Middle East and the Persians (Iranians and Shia Muslims).   But that is changing.  Shia Muslims have basically ‘declared war’ on Sunni Muslims, who they feel are not far from being infidels because of their more moderate views.

What we are witnessing in the news today, in the Middle East, is the overthrow of secular and Sunni Muslim leaders (who have historically been more moderate and more likely to be allies of the Western Nations) and their replacement with radical Shiite rulers (such as the Muslim brotherhood) that are tightly linked with Iran’s radical leader, Ahmadinejad.  I believe the newly Shia led nations will become part of a revived Persian Empire.

This Persian Empire, as it rises, is going to be very bold and very violent.  Like a snowball rolling downhill, the victories it is achieving  now, in overtaking governments throughout the Muslim world, are going to give it the size and momentum to come crashing into the Western nations very soon.

Let’s hope I’m wrong about Obama holding the door wide open for it as it approaches.

Christians, take heart . . . there is more to the vision:

‘ “Tell my people to be prepared and be careful,” says the Lord, “for everything I have decided will happen*.  Do not say in your hearts that the Lord has said many things that have not happened yet because all things are decided by Me and everything has it’s appointed time.  Draw closer to the Lord your God and cease doing evil things that I may give you victory.  I the Lord will work in ways that you cannot even imagine, but be holy.” ‘

* ‘ “I will raise the whole Arab world, the Russians and other countries against [the USA], that they may destroy her.” ‘

Update 4/6/11:

More unfortunate evidence that Obama IS ‘holding the door open’:

America Allied to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah in Libya?

Update 4/13/11:

Someone else is starting to see it . . .

Something Ominous On The Horizon

I have been struggling with prophecies for a long time–especially regarding ‘The Kings of the North’ and ‘The Kings of the South’ as laid out in Daniel 11th.  How appropriate that God would, in this 11th hour, lead me to a website called 11th Hour Info!  Apparently, this info was written (posted) sometime between 2003 and 2005.  I had never seen it before.

Some months ago, I had visited a website that identified Turkey as Magog, rather than Russia.  I agreed.  Unfortunately, I failed to bookmark the site.  Recently, events involving Turkey have led me to wonder just where that site was.  Today, I did a Google search to see if I could find it again–I didn’t.  However, I did find this site and what I believe to be extremely relevant information for all who want to understand what is happening today!!   (If I could, I would paste the page here in this blog!!)

I will have to take some time to examine this further, as well as beliefs I have held regarding the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39.  In the meantime, I wanted to share it with you in the hopes that it would deepen your understanding.  Please consider it prayerfully.
