Ezekiel 39: In that Day, God Will Save Israel from Gog’s Invasion

Yesterday we covered the start of the Gog and Magog war against Israel. 7 countries will form an alliance to invade and attack Israel for its plunder. Today we see that though we know that God pulls the strings of history, He will not let His Chosen People down. The epic war has an epic ending. Let’s dig in…

Ezekiel 39 – The Slaughter of Gog’s Hordes

“Son of man, prophesy against Gog. Give him this message from the Sovereign Lord: I am your enemy, O Gog, ruler of the nations of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around and drive you toward the mountains of Israel, bringing you from the distant north. I will knock the bow from your left hand and the arrows from your right hand, and I will leave you helpless. You and your army and your allies will all die on the mountains. I will feed you to the vultures and wild animals. You will fall in the open fields, for I have spoken, says the Sovereign Lord. And I will rain down fire on Magog and on all your allies who live safely on the coasts. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

“In this way, I will make known my holy name among my people of Israel. I will not let anyone bring shame on it. And the nations, too, will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. That day of judgment will come, says the Sovereign Lord. Everything will happen just as I have declared it.

“Then the people in the towns of Israel will go out and pick up your small and large shields, bows and arrows, javelins and spears, and they will use them for fuel. There will be enough to last them seven years! 10 They won’t need to cut wood from the fields or forests, for these weapons will give them all the fuel they need. They will plunder those who planned to plunder them, and they will rob those who planned to rob them, says the Sovereign Lord.

11 “And I will make a vast graveyard for Gog and his hordes in the Valley of the Travelers, east of the Dead Sea. It will block the way of those who travel there, and they will change the name of the place to the Valley of Gog’s Hordes. 12 It will take seven months for the people of Israel to bury the bodies and cleanse the land. 13 Everyone in Israel will help, for it will be a glorious victory for Israel when I demonstrate my glory on that day, says the Sovereign Lord.

14 “After seven months, teams of men will be appointed to search the land for skeletons to bury, so the land will be made clean again. 15 Whenever bones are found, a marker will be set up so the burial crews will take them to be buried in the Valley of Gog’s Hordes. 16 (There will be a town there named Hamonah, which means ‘horde.’) And so the land will finally be cleansed.

17 “And now, son of man, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Call all the birds and wild animals. Say to them: Gather together for my great sacrificial feast. Come from far and near to the mountains of Israel, and there eat flesh and drink blood! 18 Eat the flesh of mighty men and drink the blood of princes as though they were rams, lambs, goats, and bulls—all fattened animals from Bashan! 19 Gorge yourselves with flesh until you are glutted; drink blood until you are drunk. This is the sacrificial feast I have prepared for you. 20 Feast at my banquet table—feast on horses and charioteers, on mighty men and all kinds of valiant warriors, says the Sovereign Lord.

21 “In this way, I will demonstrate my glory to the nations. Everyone will see the punishment I have inflicted on them and the power of my fist when I strike. 22 And from that time on the people of Israel will know that I am the Lord their God. 23 The nations will then know why Israel was sent away to exile—it was punishment for sin, for they were unfaithful to their God. Therefore, I turned away from them and let their enemies destroy them. 24 I turned my face away and punished them because of their defilement and their sins.

Restoration for God’s People

25 “So now, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will end the captivity of my people; I will have mercy on all Israel, for I jealously guard my holy reputation! 26 They will accept responsibility for their past shame and unfaithfulness after they come home to live in peace in their own land, with no one to bother them. 27 When I bring them home from the lands of their enemies, I will display my holiness among them for all the nations to see. 28 Then my people will know that I am the Lord their God, because I sent them away to exile and brought them home again. I will leave none of my people behind. 29 And I will never again turn my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit upon the people of Israel. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken

Ezekiel 39 NLT

This is EPIC!

Apocalyptic Literature

First, I want to share something from one of the Bible Prophecy teachers I follow, Don Stewart. His books are available for free downloading on his website, Educating Our World. Here, he’s quoting another author, Ralph Alexander…

“‘Apocalyptic literature is not familiar to most people. In Ezekiel’s day the exiles would have been acquainted with the Mesopotamian dream visions and their literary form. It seems that the Lord adopts this specific type of literature of the seventh and sixth centuries BC in order to develop a new type of biblical literature known as apocalyptic… This literature is a symbolic visionary-prophetic type of literature consisting of visions whose events are recorded exactly as they were seen by the author and are explained through a divine interpreter.

‘”Apocalyptic literature has a simple twofold form: (1) the setting of the vision, in which the recipient and the geographical location are identified, and (2) the vision itself, with its divine interpretation (Alexander pp. 846,847).’

“The content primarily deals with events that will take place in the ‘last days.’…

“…As mentioned, since these chapters are written in a literary form known as apocalyptic, we are informed that this indicates the details are not to be understood literally. Once this is appreciated then there will be no need to try to fit the details into any known historical characters or countries—it is not meant to be understood in that manner.”

Who is Gog?

Like I said in yesterday’s post, “Gog” is a title, like Pharaoh or Caesar. We don’t know who this is. We do know where he comes from — Russia. We also don’t know when this invasion will take place. Obviously, based on what the evil Vladimir Putin is unleashing on Ukraine, I wouldn’t put it past him to be Gog. He is 69 years old and ridiculously power-hungry. So…. God only knows.

The Last Jihad

Out of the whole list of nations, only one — Russia — isn’t under Islamic rule. Given that, the possibility that they unite is high. Despite their differences, they have one common goal — to wipe Israel off the map.

The Reason for Israel’s Exile

  • God actually explains WHY all this has to take place.
  • Every nation will know.
  • Israel was unfaithful to God so He sent them into exile — twice.
    • First during Ezekiel’s time, they were sent to Babylon.
    • Next for rejecting Jesus — Yeshua Hamashiach. He had the Romans destroy the temple. Furthermore, the Jews who escaped were scattered all over the world.
  • Israel will finally accept the fact that God is their God and they are His people.
  • God will finally give them the Holy Spirit as they will know Jesus — Yeshua Hamashiach — their Messiah.

Paul wrote…

31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?

Romans 8:31 NLT

Who’s side are you on?

If you’re not sure if you’re saved or not, if you truly want to be born again and have the assurance of salvation, receive the Holy Spirit, feel His Shalom — a peace that surpasses all understanding, and get a 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven after you die, or that you won’t be left behind at the Rapture, which can happen at any moment, this is what you have to do…

Invite Jesus into Your Heart and Receive the Gift of Grace, Joy, Peace, and the Confident Hope of Eternal Life…
