Is it not sobering and very curious that Israel, even when they are totally out of the will of Almighty God are still the scourge of the nations (Deut. 28-32, Lev. 26)? This in its self is a testament to the fulfillment of the Word of the Lord and Bible prophecy and a sign to all nations and to the Jews that Israel is Almighty God's people. It will be after the destruction of Gog's confederacy that Almighty God will reveal this very point (Ezek.39, 7, 21-26). The nation of Israel at present - though back in the land - is out of the will of the TRUE KING of Israel and in the days coming up He will send them the two mighty patriarchs of old (Moses and Elijah), whom Israel has always reverenced. They will be dressed in black sackcloth and will awaken Israel slumber and address their godlessness and spiritual apostasy (Deut. 28-32, Lev. 26, Ezek. 39:21-24, Dan. 9:26-27, Matt. 23:37, 27:22-25, Rev. 11:2-6).
It will come to be in the near future at the beginning of the Day of the Lord (Dan. 9:27, Rev. 6:1-2) when Israel has beforehand eliminated her border enemies (Ezek. 38:8,11,13,14,39:25-26), that Almighty God's Two Witnesses will arrive in Israel and provide supernatural protection for their ministry which also will include the supernatural protection of the nation Israel (Ezek. 38:8,11,13,14,39:25-26, Rev. 11:2-6, 10). Under the Divine protection of Moses and Elijah (Rev. 11:2-6, 10) Israel will dwell in unwalled cities in complete safety and security, while the nations go through horrific global war and demonic domination (Ezek. 38:8,11,13,14, Rev. 6-9).
(Ezek. 38:8,11,13,14, 39:25-26) is that Israel will NOT want to hear the message of salvation which is found in Yeshua presented by Moses and Elijah (the Two Witnesses). Just as their fathers of old did not want to hear redemption's story so will the overwhelming majority of Jews at this time. The Jews at this time WILL NOT let go of their delusional bankrupt religious views and secularism - which exclude the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God (Rom. 10:2-4) - and will continue to seek to outlive their godless existence even in the light of Divine authority and signs and wonders at the hands of Almighty God's two BURNING Lamp Stands (Psalm 76, 106, Ezek. 39:7, 25-26, Zech. 13:6-9, Acts 2, 7, Matt. 27:22-25, John 19:15, Rev. 11:2-6, 8). Israel will rebel against the temple worship established at Moses and Elijah's hand which points back to Messiah's person and work (Isa. 53), their prophecies and the wonderful REALITY and TRUTH of Messiah's soon GLORIOUS second coming from the RIGHT HAND of the Father to establish His Kingdom reign (Psalm 110:1, Ezek. 39:25-26, Isa. 61:1-6, Dan. 2:44-45, 7:13,14, Zech. 14: 1-4, Rev. 1:5, 11:26, Rev. 19:11-21)!
As the inhabitants of Israel see the world going through HORRIFIC tribulation (Matt. 24: 6-8, Rev. 6-9) as they (Israel) dwell in security, safety and unbelief (Ezek. 38:8,11,13,14), they will become callus, idle and will rebel continually against the very ones who are the patriarch's of Israel (Moses and Elijah) and their testimony and word. It will be at this time near the middle of the first half of the tribulation period that Almighty God will use Israel and their prosperity in the land - which has been "brought back from the sword" - as bait to bait Gog of the land of Magog and his Islamic confederacy to come and take a "spoil" and a "prey" (Ezek. 38:8-14, 39:7, 25-26). In using this demonically governed man (Gog), Almighty God will seek to get Israel's FULL attention as he once did with Pharaoh at the birth of their nation (Ex. 14:4, Ezek 39:7,21). Almighty God will FULLY manifest His glory and Name among unbelieving Israel and the gentile nations and there will be no doubt to the REALITY of His ETERNAL Name and PERSON that He is the God of Israel and ETERNAL SOVEREIGN of ALL ETERNITY and the earth (Ezek. 39:7,21-26, Dan. 4:17).
Here is some background into Gog's great desire. In the first 3 1/2 years of global tribulation the world's gentile nations have been going through HORRIFIC global war, supernatural plagues, demonic domination and demonic destruction (Matt. 24:6-8, Rev. 6-9). The surviving nations of the world at this time have seen firsthand the Divine SUPERNATURAL protective hand of Moses and Elijah and are suffering greatly from the consequences of the Seal and Trumpet Judgments (Rev. 6-9, 11:2-6). With such HORRIFIC devastation heaped upon Gog and his confederacy during this time the land of Israel is a perfect target for supplies, resources, food and revenge (Ezek. 38:10-13). Israel during this time will be the most despised nation of the world and much of that EXPONENTIAL hatred has to do with the TREMENDOUS POWER, AUTHORITY and MINISTRY of Moses and Elijah (Matt. 24:6-9, Rev. 11:2-6, 10).
(Rev. 6-9) from these nations will mass on Israel who are unbelieving, unprepared and idle (Ezek. 38:8-14, 39:7, 25-26). Because the Two Witnesses of Revelation's ministry to Israel takes place in the first half of the tribulation period (Rev. 11:2-7) and Gog's invasion of Israel also takes place during this time period we have concluded here at the IFB that Gog and Almighty God's Two Witnesses will go head to head (Rev. 11:5-7, 38:16-23, 39). As Gog's armies approach Israel to destroy and plunder her, Almighty God by the hand of His Two Witnesses (Moses and Elijah) will call down GREAT and HORRIFIC destruction on Gog's host and deliver the nation of Israel from utter ruin (Ezek. 38:18-23, 39:1-8). At the hand of Moses and Elijah (Ezek.38:16-23, 39:1-7, Rev. 11:2-6) Almighty God will make known His glory and Name among unbelieving Israel and the raging nations and whether or not these choose to repent and believe they will know without a shadow of doubt that Almighty God is God and that these two messengers are His prophets. As Almighty God delivered Israel from Pharaoh's armies at the Red Sea (Ex.14-15) so will it be in this day (Ezek. 38:23, 39:7,13, 21,22).
This beyond amazing victory will cause Jews in the land and Gentile nations to FULLY comprehend that Almighty God is GOD and the God and protector of the people Israel (the apple of His eye) and that Israel went into captivity since 70 AD.because of their iniquity, unbelief and rebellion (Ezek. 39:6-7, 23).
This destruction at the hands of the Moses and Elijah will be so devastating that 5/6 of all of Gog's invading host will be destroyed and their dead bodies will be scattered upon the mountains and valleys in the land of Israel. It will take 7 months to bury Gog's dead hordes and they will give a huge portion of Israel to bury Gog and his host (Ezek. 39:9-20).
Even after this massive invasion of Gog and his horrific destruction at the hand of Moses and Elijah (Almighty God's vessels) Israel will still not believe nor repent (Ezek. 39:25-26, Rev. 11:8)! They will know of a truth that Almighty God is the God of Israel (Ezek. 38: 39:7, 22), for they have seen His WONDROUS POWERFUL hand against Gog's invading armies and confederacy but they are not yet ready to repent and to say that Yeshua is the Messiah and the Lamb of Almighty God and receive the testimony of Almighty God's Two Witnesses, Moses and Elijah (Lev. 17:11-14, Isa. 53, John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4).
My dear friends hear me and hear me well. Almighty God is at total war with any (Jew or Gentile) who chooses to stay unrepentant, rebellious and violate His ETERNAL established SPIRITUAL ABSOLUTES for ETERNITY and MORAL ABSOLUTES for time (John 3:36). The 7 year tribulation period is a time of PURE WRATH of the ungodly in time and the GREAT WHITE THRONE for ALL who remain unrepentant and hardened in their godless rebellion against ALL that is RIGHTEOUS and ABSOLUTE.
(Ezek. 39:25-26, Rev. 11:8). As Israel's unbelieving father's have always done (Psalms. 78,106, Matt. 27: Acts 7), so will also these follow suite. Israel will now find that Almighty God has no other choice now but to remove Israel's protective hedge (Ezek. 39:26, Matt. 24:15-21, Rev. 11:6-14) and allow Satan and his demonic human tool the Anti -Messiah to inflict HORRIFIC GREAT TRIBULATION upon Israel and the world (i,e., Jacob's trouble Jer. 30:4-8, 18). - (Dan. 9: 27, Matt. 24:15-21, Rev. 12:6-17, 13).
My dear Jewish friend, Yeshua (salvation) is the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world (Lev. 17:11-14, Isa. 53). He is the FULFILLMENT of the 10 commandments and the end of the Law to RIGHTEOUSNESS to all who believe (Rom. 10:2-4). Israel t present will not place their trust in Him and as the Holy Scripture teaches so very clear she will go through GREAT tribulation and then receive her Messiah with bitter tears (Zech. 12:10-14).
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
