For My Jewish Friends-War, a Quick Study
I’m sure you know of the coming war to the beloved land of Israel, but do you understand what will transpire and how the love of God will pour forth during this dark time? Give me a few minutes of your time and let’s reason together from the “Prophets and New Testament. I know deep in your heart, there are questions, so let us find the answers.
First, the coming Middle East war will kill one third of mankind, more than two billion across the Mid East and around the world through a nuclear exchange between several nations. Many believe two thirds of Israel will be killed as well. Revelation 9: 13-15 says “And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet. Loose the four angels which are bound in the great Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third of part of men.” This would be over two billion humans.
This is the war described in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and not the final war called Armageddon. Almighty God will intervene on behalf of Israel and Israel will win although millions of lives will be lost throughout Israel and the Middle East. It is not clear if the United States will come to Israel’s aid, but God will show that He is Jehovah, the Most High God over all the earth. How will God do this? The answers are in Psalms and Ezekiel.
Lead by modern day Russia (Gog) and Iran (Persia), several nations will come together for the sole purpose of destroying Israel. Psalms 83:3 reads “They make shrewd plans against your people, and conspire together against your treasured ones. They have said, Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more. They have conspired together with one mind; against you they make a covenant.” In Ezekiel 38 the following nations are the ones who will come together against Israel: Gog, (modern day Russia), Persia (modern day Iran which was changed to Iran in 1935), Meshech, Gomer and Togarmah (all are modern day Turkey and the areas close by), Cush (in Hebrew for Ethiopia, the upper region known as Sudan. Libyos (modern day Libya, Algeria, and Tunisia) All are Islamic and hostile towards Israel.
Adonai, the Lord God intervenes and protects Israel using earthquakes and other natural disasters. The Lord will use confusion on them, leading to friendly fire, all of which will end in the destruction of 5/6 or 84% of the enemy armies. One sixth will escape to the east. (Ezekiel 39:2, Joel 2:20) God will give Russia a burial place in the land of Israel on that day. For seven months Israel will be burying them to cleanse the land. (Ezekiel 39:12)
“Then they shall know that I (am) the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them anymore there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them; for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God (Ezekiel 39:28, 29).”
Will you die? Will I die? Only God knows that answer, but the important thing is to be ready. In Isaiah 53:5, 6 it says “But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but he Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.” The Lord God wants us all to become one new man, united in one body. Look here at Ephesians 11:13-18 “But now in Christ Jesus you who formally were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make THE TWO INTO ONE NEW MAN, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them BOTH, in ONE BODY TO GOD, through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity…..for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.” Y’shua (Jesus) is Lord and died and rose again so you can be forgiven and have eternal life. God does not want you to stop being Jewish, but to be born again by His Spirit for without it, no one will enter the kingdom of heaven. If you believe that Jesus is Lord and died and God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved (Rom10:9) Nothing and no one can ever take it from you as you are sealed by the Holy Spirit for the day of redemption (Eph4:30) May the Lord God drop the scales off your eyes, remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh, and the eyes of your heart be enlightened giving you a spirit of wisdom, and of revelation in the knowledge of Him in Y’shua’s name. The times of the Gentiles are almost up and the time for the vine is shooting forth new branches…The Messiah has come 2000 years ago to fulfill the law. His second coming will be as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and He will rule the nations with a iron hand for a thousand years…..
