Taking a New Look at Ezekiel 38 & 39 - Part II

We left off talking about Ezekiel 38, verse 4. This verse could be read, "I (Yahweh) will turn you (Gog-Magog) away from where you were planning on going, and I will lead you like a bull with a ring in his nose, and draw you and all your military forces, with all your weapons into the area I want you to be in".

No where does God say that He wants these military forces in Palestine, in the tiny state of the Israeli.

So, where then does Yahweh God lead these destructive forces?

We'll visit 2 Samuel 7:10 next: I will also appoint a place for My people Israel and will plant them, that they may live in their own place and not be disturbed again, nor will the wicked afflict them any more as formerly.

This was a prophecy given to King David while he was ruling in Jerusalem over the entire Kingdom of Israel - all twelve tribes. Why would Yahweh tell David that He was going to appoint a place for His people, Israel, if they were already in that place?

Where Israel resides today - in that place - is where the battle of Gog-Magog or Armageddon is going to take place. I believe that place is North America and even more specifically, the U.S.A. Yahweh gave true Israel a place for their own, a land of unwalled villages, a land where they could live in peace and security, just like the Bible says.

Now that time of peace is over and the time of the end is here. Not near,..... here.

Let's talk now a bit about Isaiah 18. I call this the America chapter. Most pastors today say there is no sign of America in the Bible or in Bible prophecy. I believe they are wrong.

Isa 18:1 Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:
Isa 18:2 That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
Isa 18:3 All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.
Isa 18:4 For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
Isa 18:5 For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.
Isa 18:6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.
Isa 18:7 In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.

Isaiah 18 tells us of a land to the west of the rivers of Ethiopia, or the Nile River area. I looked at my map of the world and went west from there and ended up across the Atlantic ocean pretty close to Atlanta, Georgia. The land would be covered with buzzing wings (the hundreds of airplanes that fly across our country daily). That this country would send it's ambassadors across the world in ships. (Before air travel our ambassadors had to travel by the sea except for South America and Canada).

The people who lived in this area, which had been desolate, uninhabited, a forest primeval, were to be terrible from their beginning. Since our infancy and until just recently we were feared all over the world. Our military is known as the best of the best. When we were just a tiny soon to be nation we beat the strongest military power in the world - England. The word terrible actually means respected, which we were until just recently.

The U.S. is the only nation to be completely surveyed by the U.S. Metes and Bounds Act of the early 1800's. All of our lands have been laid out by compass.

And our men are tall and for the most part clean shaven. This was one characteristic that set us apart from other military men in World War II.

So now what? If there is to be a great and terrible war to end this age and it is going to come against Israelites - true Israelites - now what?

If you are a believer in Yahweh and His Son Yahshua then most likely you are a descendent of one of the Twelve Tribes and are a part of true Israel. This war is coming to your land, to you and your children and grandchildren. The pieces are all falling into place. This country is no longer a country devoted to Almighty Yahweh. We have, for the most part, turned our backs to Him and His ways. We do not keep His Commands and we have allowed this country to become morally and spiritually corrupt. We allow unborn babies to die and our military to be used as the policemen of the world instead of defending our borders as it was meant to do in our Constitution that was built on Biblical principals.

We allowed Yahweh to be taken out of our schools and our society and morally disgusting behavior to take its place. This country, by poll, says that it is over 80% Christian. I have a hard time believing that. If we were 80% Christian there would be no abortion, we would have prayer allowed in schools and we certainly would not have the government that we have today.

I could go on and on but I think you get the point. We are not a godly nation in words or deeds and it is almost time that Yahweh says, "enough is enough". It's time to bring judgement on not His people that have sinned, but on the entire world. That is Armageddon.

He will use the armies of the world to fulfill His will. It is going to be more horrible than any can imagine. We have lived in a country that has not seen war on its mainland soil since the Civil War. Most cannot even imagine this taking place. It's easy to think of it happening across the sea in Palestine but not here. Not in America. Well see it or not, it's coming and it's coming soon.

BUT..there is hope. Hope for those who put their full faith and trust in Yahweh and His Son Yahshua. Trust and Obey. Trust Him no matter what you see, no matter what you hear, no matter what is going on around you. Obey His Commands. Read through Exodus to see what He expects of His set-apart people. How He wants us to live our lives. We can only get through this by trusting and obeying Him, no matter what. Live what is left of your life by living for Him 100%. Put Him first in all things. Above all material things.

I leave you with Psalm 91. A prayer for all Israelite Christians in these last days.

Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psa 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Psa 91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
Psa 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Psa 91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Psa 91:6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
Psa 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Psa 91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Psa 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
Psa 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
Psa 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Psa 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Psa 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Psa 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
Psa 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
Psa 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Repent, for the end is here. Repent, then trust and obey.
