Ezekiel Chapter 38 These next two chapters 38 and 39 , tell of a coming northern confederacy of nations who will invade the Promised Land.

We must look at this from the standpoint of future prophecy, because the things mentioned in the following verses have not happened yet.

This prophecy is for the day of the Lord. Some call it the time of the end. This prophecy is primarily spoken against Gog in the land of Magog. The invading hordes will be led by Gog who seems to be the leader in Magog which is the land North of Palestine around and above the Caspian and Black seas. These titles are used there symbolically of the final world uprising against Jerusalem, its people and Messiah King. On that occasion, there is only one weapon used, divine fire.

God is against them, because they have been against God. Two peoples were recognized in ancient Assyrian monuments: Both were in Asia Minor, the area of Magog, modern day Turkey. The details of the enemy force and its destruction are given by Ezekiel in the rest of chapters 38 and In this case, He brings the invader to Palestine so that He may visit judgment on the invader itself.

He thus uses the language of hooks in the jaws, as in judging Egypt. Ethiopia is another hostile country to Christianity. Ethiopia is an African country located south of Egypt. Libya is in North Africa and joins Egypt on the west side. All of these countries are opposed to Christianity. Notice, they are prepared for war. They seem to come from every direction; north, south, east, and west. Togarmah is eastern Turkey today. He is to prepare for war. It has begun historically and will continue until the latter days.

In the final millennial kingdom, there will occur the full and spiritual regathering, when all Israel is saved to enter their promised kingdom. There will be so many of them they will stir up dust, and it will look like a cloud covering the land. They should be an easy prey. This is the evil thought they are thinking. Their land has plenty of food, and has a warm port to the Mediterranean Sea. This would all be a blessing to them.

There is famine in some of these countries today. To carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Dedan has to do with caravan merchants. Tarshish were merchant traders thought to be from Southern Spain. In fact, the three just mentioned would benefit by trading with Israel.

The "young lions", speak of invading soldiers that burned cities, such as the Babylonians who invaded and burned Judah, killed or lead many away captive. When they feel the opportune time is here, they will attack Israel.

He is giving this prophecy in his own terminology. God will be glorified in this. Even Daniel referred to this time at least 3 decades prior to Ezek. The nature of the question presupposes that the previous generalities are now being particularized in the person of Gog. It will not be Israel that destroys them. It will be God, and everyone will know it is God. They even oppose God Himself. It also could be speaking of the fear of God, which comes when all of this happens.

God will fight this battle Himself and all of Israel will be safe. Every living creature upon the earth will fear the Lord at this point. This sounds like it could be the sixth seal mentioned in Revelation. Therefore, this probably is a completely different earthquake being mentioned here that affects only the mountains around Israel. This happens in many other places such as Rev.

Other scripture where hail is described is in Psalms , 6 verses; and Exodus in 14 places. In the natural, this appears to be an atomic war of great magnitude. This however, comes from God. This fire and brimstone is like that which fell upon Sodom and Gomorrah.

All of this is judgment upon these atheistic people by God, Himself. This is too horrible to even imagine. The Israelites are not harmed, even though they are near. Those who are killed by the rain, hailstones and brimstone are those who are enemies of God.

They were spared when they were marked by the angel with the inkhorn. God can do that even when fire, brimstone and even great hailstones are falling in the midst of the Israelites and their enemies. It is easy to confuse the events which happen here in Ezekiel 38 , especially the last several verses from 18 to 22 , which sound so close to those of Revelation 6: However, there are some differences which must be looked at.

Everyone who is left will know He is God. No man has to elevate God, or could even if they wanted to. God is above all of His creation, including man. Ezekiel Chapter 38 Questions 1. When is this prophecy for? Magog seems to be what country? What was this northern nation known for? Why was God against them? Russia is spoken of as what animal? What is Persia today? Where is Ethiopia located? What do all of these countries have in common? Which directions do they come from?

What are they to prepare for? When will this war happen? Why will they decide to attack Israel? What benefit do they think it will be to them? Who asks the question in verse 13? Who does the author believe the "young lions" are? What is the strangest thing about this army that descends on Israel?

When they come against Israel, what happens to God? What is this great shaking, probably? What destruction does God rain down on them?


These next two chapters (38 and 39), tell of a coming northern confederacy of nations who will invade the Promised Land.
