It will happen soon

Last night i got drawn to read Ezekiel 38 & 39 again, and i feel it’s going to be fulfilled soon.

Notes on this passage:

a) The whole of this points to the coming of our Lord and the beginning of His millennial reign. There’s no thought here of this present earth and cosmos being consumed (melted) with fire, as will happen at the end of the millennium, when there will be a new heaven and new earth.

b) The theme toward the end of the passage outlines the relationship between Israel and all the nations; how the events at the end of this present age, in Israel, will cause the whole world to fear and glorify God. It also outlines Israel’s continuing possession of the land after they have been brought back from the diaspora, and also how they restore the land and bury all the dead (their enemies) whom God kills.

c) Here God uses the term “the land of Israel”. Many spiritualize such scriptures as these, and say that Israel is now the church and that the present day political Israel is not the Israel the Bible refers to here. The very least these ones should acknowledge is the name by which God calls the land from the Jordan to the sea; He calls it THE LAND OF ISRAEL – meaning that God says it belongs to the descendants of Jacob/Israel and not anyone else. Say it out loud, “Its the Land of Israel!” – you’ll feel good all over bcos you’ll be agreeing with the God of Israel.

When God calls that land “the land of Israel” then who has the audacity to challenge Him and say it’s not the land of Israel?

    Jer. 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

    6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

    8 But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the descendants of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.
