Discussion for Ezekiel 14:21

  • PhillipF for verse 21
    The 4 sore judgments in Ezekiel 14 will be fulfilled in the 4 seals of Revelation 6; announcing the beginning of the great tribulation upon the nation of Israel. The 4 seals/judgments are also seen in Ezekiel 5:16, 17. Doesn't the great tribulation affect the whole world? Yes! Read the last half of Jeremiah 25: all the nations of the world will suffer because of the sword of the Lord pursuing the Jewish remnant that will be scattered into the four winds of the earth (Ezekiel 5); wherever they go while fleeing from the Lord's wrath.
