Discussion for Ezekiel 39

  • Doug
    There are two feasts in Ezekiel 39 on the dead bodies. The first is on Gog's army, in Ezekiel 39:4. Then the cleanup of the land, and followed by 7 years.

    The 7 years are the 70th week of Daniel 9, which ends with the Jesus's return and his judgement on those armies gathered together to fight him, Rev 19:19.

    That Armageddon feast is in Ezekiel 39:17-20.

    to Sparker: I used to think that Ez 38,39 and Re 20:8,9 were the same however there are too many differences; such as all the world (4 quarters) attack Jerusalem whereas in EZ it is the north, south and east that attack. The west (Tarshish) will not be involved. Also it will takes 7 yrs to burn all the weapons and the judgment from God is sudden and then the GW throne occurs, not enough time.
  • SParker
    If this war occurs at the end of the thousand years, it would explain the unwalled villages. Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
    8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

    Russia is the bear which will try to defeat Israel which will never be despite Israel
    rejection of the messiah. repent and bow to the lord Jesus Christ for salvation
    before it is too late.

    What the most of the Christian world does not understand, is the House of Israel or Zion in the latter days, is the great nation re-gathered from the lost tribes of Israel. This great nation is the colonies of the United States. Only two tribes returned to old Israel - Judah and Levi. So that is why both the US and Israel are the targets of Gog and his allies - including Persia which is Iran. We very well could see the armies of these nations fall on our soil according to God's doing as beautifully described in this chapter. It is coming soon
  • Gary Davis
    Ezekiel speaks of Israel having unwalled villages and no fences. This is currently not the case. It shall, however, come to pass before the time prophesied -- and the LORD 's prophecies NEVER fail! Therefore, something will occur that allows Israel to be at peace before this time. I doubt that it will be the Antichrist 's seven-year treaty, but the events of chapters 38 39 may cause his coming to the fore, and his enforced Treaty on the region though named Islamic nations, and Russia, shall be in no position to threaten Israel following this -- in fact, I believe that this spells the end of Islam as a major force in the world -- but other nations may still harbour real resentment about Israel, and the wealth that she has at this future date . I therefore suspect Israel shall acknowledge the LORD, but later come to believe either that God will let them do whatever they please, and or misidentify Antichrist as the Messiah.
