1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

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

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

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:

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

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

7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

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.

9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

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?

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?

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:

16 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.

17 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?

18 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.

19 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;

20 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.

21 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.

23 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.

Matthew Henry's Ezekiel Chapter 38 Bible commentary...



The army and malice of Gog. (1-13) God's judgments. (14-23)1-13 These events will be in the latter days. It is supposed these enemies will come together to invade the land of Judea, and God will defeat them. God not only sees who are now the enemies of his church, but he foresees who will be so, and lets them know by his word that he is against them; though they join together, the wicked shall not be unpunished.

14-23 The enemy should make a formidable descent upon the land of Israel. When Israel dwell safely under the Divine protection, shalt not thou be made to know it by finding that endeavours to destroy them are made in vain? Promises of security are treasured up in the word of God, against the troubles and dangers the church may be brought into in the latter days. In the destruction of sinners, God makes it appear that he is a great and holy God. We should desire and pray daily. Father, glorify thine own name.

I believe we are living in the hours before this comes to pass surely soon We need to be sure of our testimony for Jesus and share it with others who need to be prepared Not knowing Jesus as our personal Savior would be an eternal mistake I believe America has failed Israel in the last years and I hope and pray that God will be merciful to America for the sake of the Christians who love and pray for Israel continually I believe Jesus is coming soon to take his bride out and then there will be evil on every hand and few that find their way to Jesus when the church has been removed

This surely correct it means that the land of Israel is currently under occupation by Mogog Revelation 3 9 is clear in regards to those who call themselves Israel Jews are NOT but the synagogue of Satan coincidence No The current state of Israel was created in 1948 by President Roosevelt in conjunction with UK History tells us that Israelites were exiled in 70AD by the Romans as part of the curses of disobedience as the most high speaks in Deuteronomy 28 The word of God is clear unless someone also accuse God of lying

 


Cedric's Ezekiel Chapter 38 comment on 2/10/2014, 12:17pm...

I believe this attack on Israel will most probably start just before the the tribulation period and the anti christ who has been present will come forth providing answers to an everlasting peace Once he gains more power and shows it Israel will accept him as their true messiah Jesus Christ warned that this would happen

what i believed is that we are living in this time where nations are turning agaisnt their leaders, there's famine, etc.. the important thing is that if we believe and trust in God we will be saved. Keep believing. Praise the Lord.

Were the hor***** demon or human?

 


Connie's Ezekiel Chapter 38 comment on 2/07/2013, 10:02am...

I agree with Buddy. The most important thing and always, is that we are saved. That we have a personnel relationship with Jesus and have accepted Him in our heart, so we are ready for His return, to reign in the New Earth someday.

 


BUDDY DURRETT's Ezekiel Chapter 38 comment on 2/02/2013, 11:23am...

This period of time will not come soon it's already here, all nations that hate Israel and the US and its allies are gearing up to destroy us. The only thing that matters is are you saved and ready to go with Jesus when he comes back FOR US.
