Is The Ezekiel 38 War Coming Soon?

Doug Casey writes in Starting Wars: “And so the next chapter in this ongoing drama is set to open. A chapter, I fear, that ultimately leads to another war in the Middle East, potentially set off by a provision in the latest round of sanctions that calls for the embargoing countries to inspect cargo to and from Iran. By creating the conditions for what could easily turn into a naval blockade, the West has created an opportunity for a shoot-out at sea followed by all manner of consequences.”

Commentary:

Bible Prophecy of Ezekiel 38 foretells of a dramatic middle east war that involves Germany, Turkey, Russia, Syria and most arab nations, presumably Iran.

Across the internet there are many bloggers who believe as I do, some are sympathetic to Isarael and others not.

Jerusalem Watch relates Gog and Magog is a reference is to chapters 38 and 39 in the book of Ezekiel, a part of which is read on the intermediate Sabbath of Sukkot (Tabernacles).

Jack Kelley provides details on The Battle Of Ezekiel 38.

Reformed Christian John McArthur relates in study guide The Future of Israel The Reign of Rebellion –Part 2 Ezekiel 38-39 contains important evidence indicating a Russian army that will invade from the north.

I believe the  Bible prophecy of Daniel 9:27 foretells that the world’s Sovereign will one day, after this terrific war,  establish a peace covenant between Israel and Arab nations.  Yet the Sovereign will not fully honor that covenant as he will break it after 36 months. “He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week”; here each day represents one year. This important phrase indicates that the event that starts the 70th week, the seven-year tribulation, is the signing of a seven-year covenant between the Sovereign and Israel. The signing of the covenant begins the period called the Tribulation. At the halfway point of the Tribulation, which is three and a half years, the Sovereign will break this covenant with Israel with an event called “The Abomination of Desolation.” It is at this time that God provides a physical place of safety, that is a refuge, for a select group of saints.This also signals there is only three and a half more years remaining before Christ returns to earth to set up His Earthly Kingdom, which will last for a 1,000 years.

It is a given that the covenant between the Sovereign and Israel will permit the Jews to rebuild their temple, where they will once again practice their sacrifices.

Lambert Dolphin writes the article The Temple Of Ezekiel from a Christian point of view; I believe the prophetic Temple will be built in the Millenium, after the battle of Armageddon.

ComingWorldWar3 relates that the nations, most believe, will be participants in the future Gog-Magog attack are as follows, all of them taken from Ezekiel’s prophecy:

. Magog – Most agree this is a reference to Russia.
. Meshech – Most associate this with modern-day Turkey, ancient Anatolia, but some say it refers to the Moscow area.
. Tubal – Most associate this with modern-day Turkey, ancient Anatolia.
. Persia – modern Iran
. Ethiopia
. Libya
. Gomer – eastern Europe or Turkey
. Togarmah – southeastern Europe or Turkey
