PROPHECY CHRONOLOGY DEBUNTED



Continued from #1


Israel Invaded by a Northern Military Coalition



Now we turn to the invasion itself, prophesied in Ezekiel 38—39. The goal of the northern assault force will be to utterly obliterate the Jews. These are the nations that will be included in the invasion:


Rosh - which likely refers to modern Russia, to the uttermost north of Israel.

Magog - which probably includes the former southern Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and possibly even northern parts of modern Afghanistan.

Meshech and Tubal - which refer to the area south of the Black and Caspian Seas—modern Turkey.

Persia - which became Iran in 1935 and the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979.

Ethiopia - or modem-day Sudan.

Put - or modern-day Libya. The term may also include Algeria and Tunisia.

Gomer - which apparendy refers to part of modern-day Turkey.

Beth-togarrnah - which also apparendy refers to modern-day Turkey, though it may also include Azerbaijan and Armenia.


This unique alignment of nations has never occurred in the past but is occurring today which lends credence to the idea that we are living in the end times.


(JUST  ABOUT  WRONG  ON ALL  ACCOUNTS.  THE  FUNDAMENTAL  PROTESTANT  PROPHETS  HAVE  NEVER  STUDIED  THE  ORIGIN  OF  ALL  THE  NATIONS  ON  EARTH.  PEOPLE  LIKE  HAROLD  HEMINGWAY  AND  CRAIG  WHITE,  HAVE  STUDIED  WHERE  ALL  NATIONS  COME  FROM,  AND  WHERE  THEY  ARE TODAY.

SO  THE  TRUTH  IS:


GOG = RUSSIA  AND  CHINA.

MAGOG = MONGOLIA, MANCHURIA, KOREA, UKRAINE, N.E. RUSSIA.

ROSH (NOT "CHIEF") PRINCE OF ROSH AND TUBAL = NORTH AND SOUTH RUSSIANS.

PERSIA = IRAN.

ETHIOPIA SHOULD BE CUSH = INDIA, CEYLON, PHILIPPINES, ETHIOPIA.

LIBYA SHOULD BE PUT = WEST AND CENTRAL AFRICA, NORTH INDIA, PARKISTAN, BANGLADESH.

GOMER = SOUTH ASIA, PHILIPPINES.

TOGARMAH = SIBERIA, RUSSIA.


IT  WILL  BE  PEOPLE  FROM  THE  NORTH  AND  EAST  AND  FROM  WEST  AND  CENTRAL  AFRICA AS WELL AS ETHIOPA - Keith Hunt)


An alliance between many of these nations may not necessarily have made good sense in Ezekiel's day because they are not even located near each other and because Islam did not yet exist. However, such an alliance makes great sense today because the nations that make up the coalition are predorninandy Muslim. That in itself is more than enough reason for them to unify in attacking Israel—especially considering current Islamic hatred for Israel.


(WRONG  ONCE  MORE, AS  THE  AUTHOR  AND  HIS  KIND  DO  NOT  KNOW  WHERE  THESE  NATIONS  ARE  TODAY.  PEOPLE  LIKE  HEMINGWAY  AND  WHITE  HAVE  STUDIED  FOR  YEARS  THE  TRUTH  OF  THE  ORIGIN  OF  THE  NATIONS  OF  THE  EARTH.  CRAIG  WHITE'S  BOOK  "THE  ORIGIN  OF  NATIONS"  CAN  BE  OBTAINED  FROM  AMAZON.COM  -  Keith Hunt)



When Does the Invasion Occur?


In the previous chapter, I pointed out that Israel must be living in a state of security when this invasion occurs (Ezekiel 38:8,11). I suggested that such a state now exists and that the invasion will likely take place sometime after the rapture but prior to the beginning of the tribulation period—perhaps even three and a half years prior to the beginning of the tribulation period (see Ezekiel 39:9-10).


(WRONG  AGAIN!  Keith Hunt)


Some scholars claim that Ezekiel 38—39 may refer to an invasion that has already taken place. Here are six reasons why I believe this view is wrong.


Israel has never been invaded on the scale of what is described in Ezekiel 38—39. Nor has an invasion into Israel involved the specific nations mentioned in the passage. This prophecy has not been fulfilled yet, so its fulfillment must yet be future.

Ezekiel was clear that the things of which he spoke would be fulfilled "in the latter years" (Ezekiel 38:8) and "in the latter days" (verse 16). Such phrases point to the end times.

The unique alignment of nations as described in Ezekiel 38—39 has never occurred in the past but is apparendy occurring today.

Ezekiel affirmed that the invasion would occur after Israel was regathered from all around the earth-—-"gathered from many peoples" (Ezekiel 38:8,12)—to a land that had been a wasteland. Certainly there were occasions in Israel's history where the Jews were held in bondage. For example, they were held in bondage in Egypt. They went into captivity in Assyria, as well as in Babylon. But in each of these cases, their deliverance involved being set free from a single nation, not many nations around the world. The only regathering of Jews from "many peoples" around the world in Israel s history is that which is occurring in modern days (especially since 1948, when Israel achieved statehood).


(I  AGREE  BUT  FOR  THE  LAST  COMMENT.  THE  GATHERING  OF  ISRAELITES [WHICH  THE  JEWS  ARE  ONLY  3  TRIBES - JUDAH, BENJAMIN, AND  LEVI]  IS  AFTER  A  FUTURE  DESTRUCTION  OF  ALL  13  TRIBES.  BUT  FOR  ALL  THAT  TRUTH  SEE  MY  EXPOUNDING  OF  THE  BOOK  OF  EZEKIEL  ON  MY  WEBSITE  -  Keith Hunt)


Since chapters 36-37 are apparendy being literally fulfilled (a regathering from "many peoples"), we can reasonably and consistendy assume that chapters 38-39 will likewise be literally fulfilled. This is in keeping with the well-established precedent of biblical prophecies throughout the Old Testament being literally fulfilled.


(I  WANT  YOU  TO  NOTE  THE  AUTHOR  SAYS  ALL  THIS  MUST  BE  A  LITERAL  FULFILLMENT.....AND  I  AGREE,  SO  MARK  IT....LITERAL....SO  ALL  THE  PROPHECY  MUST  BE  LITERAL.....MARK  IT  IN  YOUR  MIND,  WE  SHALL  COME  BACK  TO  THE  LITERAL  LATER  -  Keith Hunt)


In view of such factors, it is both reasonable and consistent with the rest of biblical prophecy to hold that this passage refers to a yet-future invasion into Israel that will take place when Israel is in a state of security, likely after the rapture but before the tribulation period.


(ALL  NONSENSE  AND  OFF  THE  WALL,  OUT  IN  NEVER  NEVER  LAND  -  Keith Hunt)



Israel Stands Alone


Israel will stand alone when attacked by the massive northern military coalition. Some nations'—"Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish" (apparendy Saudi Arabia and some Western nations)—will diplomatically ask the invaders, "Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder?" (Ezekiel 38:13). But their words are not followed by action. Israel stands utterly alone.


(IT  WILL  BE  CERTAIN  "EASTERN  NATIONS"  WHO  ASK  THIS,  NONE  FROM  THE  WEST,  FOR  THE  WEST,  BABYLON  EUROPE  IS  DESTROYED  BY  THIS  TIME  -  Keith Hunt)


This means that the odds of Israels survival, from a human perspective, will be nil. Israel will be vasdy and overwhelmingly outnumbered. If this were merely a human battle, the outcome would be easy to predict. Israel will appear weak and alone in the face of this Goliath intruder, but God is strong! Ezekiel 38—39 reveals that the invading force will be annihilated by God before any damage falls upon Israel.



God Is Israel's Protector


God is all-powerful (Jeremiah 32:17). He has the power to do all that He desires and wills. Some 56 times Scripture declares that God is almighty (see Revelation 19:6, for example). God is abundant in strength (Psalm 147:5 nasb) and has incomparably great power (2 Chronicles 20:6; Ephesians 1:19-21). No one can hold back His hand (Daniel 4:35), reverse His actions (Isaiah 43:13), or thwart Him (Isaiah 14:27 NIV). Nothing is impossible with Him (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10:27; Luke 1:37), and nothing is too difficult for Him (Genesis 18:14; Jeremiah 32:17,27). The Almighty reigns (Revelation 19:6). Scripture reveals that this all-powerful God will utterly thwart the invasion of the northern military coalition.


(IT  IS  A  NORTH  AND  EAST  COALITION,  WITH  SOME  FROM  AFRICA  -  Keith Hunt)


Scripture also reveals that God is always watchful—"Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep" (Psalm 121:4)-—-and He will be Israel's defender. The invaders may think their success is all but guaranteed, but God sees all, and Israel's attackers stand no chance of success.

Recall that God had earlier promised His people that "no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed" (Isaiah 54:17). We often witness God fulfilling this promise in the Old Testament, playing the definitive role in battling against Israel's enemies (see, for example, Exodus 15:3 and Psalm 24:8). God is even sometimes described in military terms-—-the "Lord of hosts" (2 Samuel 6:2,18).


(GOD  WILL  ONLY  PROTECT  ISRAEL [ALL  13  TRIBES]  WHEN  THEY  ARE  IN  OBEDIENCE  TO  HIM.  WHEN  THIS  INVASION  COMES,  THEY  WILL  BE  SERVING  HIM  IN  SPIRIT  AND  IN  TRUTH  -  Keith Hunt)


Ezekiel 38:18-19 mentions God's wrath and anger toward the northern military invaders. These words express the intensity of God's vengeance against those who attack His people.

Gods multifaceted defeat of the northern military coalition, described for us in Ezekiel 3 8:17—39:8, will include a fourfold judgment.



An earthquake (Ezekiel 38:19-20). The devastating earthquake described by Ezekiel, in which "the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground," will cause many troops to die. Transportation will be utterly disrupted, and apparently the armies of the multinational forces will be thrown into utter chaos.


(AN  EARTHQUAKE  DOES  NOT  EFFECT  ROCKETS  AND  SUPER  SONIC  AIRPLANES,  IF  THIS  IS  HAPPENING  BEFORE  CHRIST  RETURNS  -  Keith Hunt)



Infighting (Ezekiel38:21). God sovereignly induces the armies of the various nations in the invading force to turn on each other and kill each other. This may be at least partially due to the confusion and chaos that results following the massive earthquake. John E Walvoord offered this explanation: "In the pandemonium, communication between the invading armies will break down and they will begin attacking each other. Every man's sword will be against his brother (Ezek. 38:21). Fear and panic will sweep through the forces so each army will shoot indiscriminately at the others."5 The armies of the various nations will also speak different languages-—including Russian, Farsi, Arabic, and Turkic—-making communication difficult and adding to the confusion. The Russians and Muslim nations may also turn on each other. Perhaps in the midst of the chaos, they will suspect they are being double-crossed and will respond by opening fire on each other. In any event, there will be countless casualties.



(NOT  VERY  LIKELY  IF  ALL  THIS  IS  BEFORE  CHRIST  RETURNS.  MODERN  WEAPONS  ARE  EASY  TO  FIRE  AT ONE  SPECIFIC  COUNTRY,  A  SMALL  COUNTRY  AT  THAT.  THE  INFIGHTING  IS  MUCH  MORE  SENSIBLE  AFTER  CHRIST  HAS  COME,  WHEN  THE  ARMIES  FROM THE  NORTH  AND  EAST  ARE  BUT  A  RAG-TAG  CAVE-MAN  TYPE  ARMY  -  Keith Hunt)




3. Disease (Ezekiel38:22). The earthquake and infighting will leave countless dead bodies in their wake. Transportation will be disrupted, hindering or preventing the transfer of wounded people, medicine, food and water, and other supplies. Meanwhile, birds and other predatory animals will feast on the unburied flesh. All this is a recipe for the outbreak of pandemic disease, which according to Ezekiel, will take many more lives.



(AGAIN  AN  EARTHQUAKE  WILL  NOT  EFFECT  ROCKETS,  AND  AIR-PLANES.  PESTILENCE  AND  BLOOD WILL  BE  FROM  WHAT  GOD  DOES  NEXT,  AND  FROM  SOME INFIGHTING  AS  BEING  A  RAG-TAG  CAVE-MAN  TYPE  ARMY,  AFTER  CHRIST  HAS  RETURNED  -  Keith Hunt)



4. Torrential rain, hailstones, fire, and burning sulfur (Ezekiel
38:22). The fourth and final phase of Gods execution of enemy
forces will involve torrential rain (with heavy flooding), hailstones, fire, and burning sulfur pouring down on the invading troops. The powerful earthquake may trigger volcanoes in the region, thrusting into the atmosphere a hail of molten rock and burning sulfur (volcanic ash) that would fall on the invading troops, utterly destroying them.


(AGAIN  IF  THIS  IS  BEFORE  THE  COMING  OF  CHRIST  AND  EVEN  BEFORE  THE  GREAT  TRIBULATION,  ALL  THE  RAIN,  HAILSTONES,  FIRE,  BURNING  SULFUR,  WILL  NOT  EFFECT  ROCKETS  AND  MISSILES  AND  AIR-PLANES  FLYING  HIGH  AND  DROPPING  BOMBS  ON  A  SMALL  COUNTRY  LIKE  THE  STATE  OF  ISRAEL;  BUT  IT  CAN  CERTAINLY  EFFECT  A  GROUND  TROOP  OF  A  RAG-TAG  ARMY  OF  CAVE-MAN  TYPE  PEOPLE,  ONLY  BEING  ABLE  TO  TRY  AND  INVADE  BY  FOOT,  AFTER  CHRIST  HAS  RETURNED  -  Keith Hunt)



What a turn of events all this will be. The invading troops will come with the intention of killing, but they themselves will be killed. They will believe their power is overwhelming, but they will be overwhelmed by the greater power of God. They will come to take over a new land (Israel) but instead will be buried in the land.


As if all this weren't enough, God also promises, "I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coaslands" (Ezekiel 39:6). The term Magog seems to refer to the southern part of the former Soviet Union-—-perhaps including the former southern Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and possibly even northern parts of modern Afghanistan. We are told in this prophetic verse that God will rain fire down upon this area of the world and on Magogs allies "who dwell securely in the coastlands." These sobering words have led Joel Rosenberg to make this comment:

This suggests that targets throughout Russia and the former Soviet Union, as well as Russia's allies, will be super-naturally struck on this day of judgment and partially or completely consumed. These could be limited to nuclear missile silos, military bases, radar installations, defense ministries, intelligence headquarters, and other government buildings of various kinds. But such targets could very well also include religious centers, such as mosques, madrassas, Islamic schools and universities, and other facilities that preach hatred against Jews and Christians and call for the destruction of Israel. Either way, we will have to expect extensive collateral damage, and many civilians will be at severe risk.6


(THE  PASSAGE  SAYS  NO  SUCH  THINGS,  IT  TELLS  US  CLEARLY  AN  ARMY  OF  THESE  PEOPLE  COMING  INTO  THE  LAND  OF  ISRAEL  WILL  BE  DESTROYED.  AND  THE  PEOPLE  OF  THE  COASTS,  THE  PEOPLE  OF  THE  FAR  EAST  -  CHINA, INDIA, JAPAN, ASIA, PHILIPPINES, WILL  BE  EFFECTED  BY  GOD'S  FURRY  -  Keith Hunt)  



This judgment will serve to nullify any possible reprisal or future attempts at invasion. No further attack against Israel by these evil forces will be possible!



The Burial of Enemy Bodies


Normally, when many are slain in a major battle and the battle is over, the invaders bury their own dead. In the present case, however, all the invaders will be dead, so the task of burial must fall to the house of Israel.

Scripture reveals that the burial of these bodies will begin immediately after God destroys the northern military alliance. The number of slain invaders will be so vast, so innumerable, that nothing but a deep valley—the Valley of Hamongog—will suffice for their corpses (Ezekiel 39:11). And it will take a full seven months to accompHsh the task of burial in this valley. Keep in mind that the invaders come not from a single nation, but rather from a coalition of nations, including Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, and a number of other Muslim nations.


(NOT  HARDLY  ANY  MUSLIM  NATIONS  WILL  BE  PART  OF  THIS  INVADING  ARMY,  THE  AUTHOR  HAS  MOST  OF  THE  NATIONS  WRONG.  NOW  STOP  AND  THINK,  USE  SOME  COMMON  SENSE,  THAT  IS  NOT  SO  COMMON  ANYMORE  -  IF  ALL  THIS  TAKES  PLACE  BEFORE  CHRIST  COMES,  BEFORE  THE  GREAT  TRIBULATION  EVEN,  THE  NATIONS  INVOLVED  WILL  NOT  NEED  TO  SEND  THOUSANDS  UPON  THOUSANDS  OF  LAND  TROOPS  TO  INVADE  THE  LAND  OF  ISRAEL,  MODERN  MISSILES  AND  ROCKETS,  AND  SUPER-SONIC  AIR-PLANES  DROPPING  BOMBS,  WILL  DO  THE  JOB  VERY  NICELY,  WITH  LOSS  OF  LIFE  ON  THESE  INVADING  NATIONS  VERY  LOW  INDEED.  NOW  IF  THE INVADING  ARMY  IS  THOUSANDS  UPON  THOUSANDS  FROM  THESE  NATIONS,  COMING  ON  FOOT,  WITH  CAVE-MAN  TYPE  WEAPONS  AFTER  CHRIST  HAS  RETURNED [MOST  OF  THE  MODERN  WORLD  HAS  ALREADY  BY  THEN  BLOW  ITSELF  TO  BITS,  ALL  OF  REVELATION  HAS  COME  TO  PASS]  THEN  WE  CAN  SEE  WHY  ISRAEL  WILL  TAKE  SEVEN  MONTHS  TO  BURY  THE  DEAD  -  Keith Hunt)



 Following the seven-month period, a secondary burial crew will traverse the land and search for any bones that were missed. This is all part of the concerted effort to cleanse the land perfectly from all uncleanness arising from the bones of the dead (see Numbers 19:11-22; Deuteronomy 21:1-9). Markers will be placed wherever bones are found, and grave diggers will take the bones to the burial site.



(ONCE  MORE  AN  INVASION  FROM  CAVE-MAN  TYPE  PEOPLE  LEFT  OVER  AFTER  THE  BOOK  OF  REVELATION  HAS  BEEN  FULFILLED,  AFTER  CHRIST  HAS  RETURNED,  AND  THE  WORLD  HAS  JUST  ABOUT  BLOWN  ITSELF  OFF  THE  EARTH,  MAKES  MUCH  MORE  SENSE  OF  THESE  [REMEMBER  THE  AUTHOR  HAS  SAID  LITERAL  INTERPRETATION, AND  I  AGREE]  VERSES,  WHERE  THOUSANDS  OF  CAVE-MAN  TYPE  PEOPLE  ARE  INVADING  THE  LAND  OF  ISRAEL  -  Keith Hunt)



The Gathering and Burning of Enemy Weapons



Following God's destruction of the northern military coalition, the Israelites will gather and burn enemy weapons for a period of seven years. If seven years is required to burn them all, that means a formidable arsenal will be collected.



(AND  ONCE  MORE,  USE  SOME  COMMON  SENSE!  IF  ALL  THIS  TAKES  PLACE  IN  THE  MODERN  WORLD,  BEFORE  THE  GREAT  TRIBULATION  TAKES  PLACE,  BEFORE  CHRIST  RETURNS,  MODERN  WEAPONS  LIKE  MISSILES,  ROCKETS,  BOMBS,  ASAULT  RIFLES,  TANKS, AND  ETC.  ARE  MADE  OF  STEEL!!  SUCH  WEAPONS  DO  NOT  BURN,  YOU  CAN  PUSH  THEM  INTO  A  PILE  AND  BURRY  THEM,  OR  MELT  THEM  DOWN,  BUT  YOU  DO  NOT  BURN  THEM.  AND  AGAIN,  MODERN  WARFARE  WOULD  NOT  USE  THOUSANDS  UPON  THOUSANDS  OF  GROUND  TROOPS;  YOU  USE  MISSILES,  AND  BOMBS,  AND  TANKS,  AND  ROCKET-LAUNCHERS,  WHICH  WOULD  MAKE  QUICK  DESTRUCTION  UPON  A  VERY  SMALL  COUNTRY  LIKE  THE  STATE  OF  ISRAEL  -  Keith Hunt)



Those interested in the precise chronology of biblical prophecy will note a problem here. If the seven years of burning weapons is parallel to the seven-year tribulation period, how can Israel take flight from Jerusalem in the middle of the tribulation? In Matthew 24, Jesus urges the Jews living in Jerusalem to take flight when the antichrist sets up his headquarters there in the middle of the tribulation. So the problem is this: How will the Jews be able to continue the task of burning weapons if they have to take flight from Jerusalem in the middle of the tribulation?

The problem can be avoided by not making the seven years of burning weapons parallel to the seven-year tribulation period. If the Ezekiel invasion takes place at least three and a half years prior to the beginning of the tribulation period (as I suggested earlier), the burning of weapons will be completed by the midpoint of the tribulation period.



(AND  ONCE  MORE  PLACING  THESE  CHAPTERS  OF  EZEKIEL  BEFORE  THE  TRIBULATION  AND  ETC.  AS  THE  AUTHOR  FANCILY  WANTS  YOU  TO  BELIEVE,  MAKES  THIS  A  MODERN  21ST  CENTURY  INVASION,  WHERE  MISSILES,  ROCKETS,  AND  BOMBS,  WILL  BE  USED,  AND  NOT  A  MASSIVE  GROUND  TROOP  ARMY.  WHY  DO  YOU  THINK  THE  JEWS  ARE  CONCERNED  TODAY  THAT  IRAN  DOES  NOT  GET  THE  ATOMIC  BOMB.....BECAUSE  THEY  CAN  SEND  IT  THROUGH  THE SKY  ONTO  THE  LITTLE  COUNTRY  OF  THE  JEWS  IN  THE  HOLY  LAND.....NO  GROUND  TROOPS  NEEDED,  TO DESTROY  SUCH  A  SMALL  COUNTRY  -  Keith Hunt)



Keep in mind that the tribulation does not begin directly after the rapture. Nothing in Scripture negates the possibility of a number of years passing between the rapture and the tribulation. The signal for the beginning of the tribulation is not the rapture, but rather the antichrist signing a covenant with Israel (Daniel 9:26-27).



(ALL  COMPLETELY  WRONG!  ONCE  AGAIN  WE  ARE  BACK  TO  THIS  TWO  PHASED  COMING  OF  CHRIST....THIS  SECRET  RAPTURE  STUFF,  NOW  A  NUMBER  OF  YEARS  BEFORE  THE  GREAT  TRIBULATION  BEGINS,  AND  WE  ARE  BACK  TO  THE  PROTESTANT  PROPHETS  WRONG  INTERPRETATION  OF DANIEL  9:26-27  -  Keith Hunt)



The Conversion of Multitudes



In Ezekiel 38-39, God gives a mighty testimony of His power and glory in the midst of His destruction of the northern military coalition against Israel.


"I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself

known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord" (Ezekiel 38:23).

"My holy name I will make known in the midst of my peo-

ple Israel, and I will not let my holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel" (Ezekiel 39:7).

"I will set my glory among the nations, and all the nations

shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid on them. The house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God, from that day forward" (Ezekiel 39:21-22).



(NOW  IF  YOU  READ  ON  YOU  WILL  FIND  GOD  WILL  POUR  OUT  HIS  SPIRIT  UPON  THE  HOUSE  OF  ISRAEL - CHAP.39:29.  THIS  MEANS  THEY  WILL  BE  CONVERTED  CHRISTIANS!  SO  WITH  THIS  IN  MIND,  AND  GOING  ALONG  WITH  THE  AUTHOR'S  TEACHING  OF  THE  SECRET  RAPTURE,  AND  THE  AUTHOR'S  IDEA  OF  THIS  PROPHECY  TAKING  PLACE  BEFORE  THE  GREAT  TRIBULATION,  THEN  THE  RAPTURE [SECRET ONE] ......AH,  ARE  YOU  GETTING  IT?  ALL  IN  ISRAEL  HAVING  GOD'S  SPIRIT,  BEING  CHRISTIANS,  WILL  BE  PART  OF  THE  SECRET RAPTURE,  TAKEN  AWAY  TO  HEAVEN,  AND  WILL  NOT  BE  FOOLED  INTO  SIGNING  A  PEACE  TREATY  WITH  THE  BEAST  OF  EUROPE,  NOR  WILL  THEY  FIND  IT  NECESSARY  TO  BUILD  A  TEMPLE  IN  JERUSALEM  AND  DO  ANIMAL  SACRIFICES;  THEY  WILL  BE  FILLED  WITH  GOD'S  SPIRIT,  BE  CHRISTIANS,  AND  WILL  NOT  NEED  TO  FLEE  FROM JERUSALEM,  WHEN  THE  BEAST  BRINGS  IN  THE  TRIBULATION,  FOR  THEY  WILL  ALL  BE  SECRETLY  RAPTURED  AWAY.  THE  WHOLE  IDEA  OF  THIS  AUTHOR  IS  SO  FULL  OF  HOLES,  IT  IS  LAUGHABLE  IF  HE  WAS  NOT  SO  SERIOUS  ABOUT  IT  ALL  -  Keith Hunt)



Clearly, Gods destruction of the northern invaders will be a powerful testimony that no one can ignore. Indeed, the whole world will witness God's destruction of the invaders and recognize His greatness, holiness, and glory (38:23; 39:13,21). Moreover, Israel will be utterly awed at Gods intervention on its behalf. God's stunning defeat of Gog and his military machine will force Israel to acknowledge His unfathomable power and justice (see Ezekiel 39:28-29).



(AH  YES,  BUT  THE  AUTHOR  LEAVES  OUT  VERSE  29  OF  CHAPTER 39.  HE  IS  READING  WITH  TUNNEL  VISION.  HE  KNOWS  99  PERCENT  OF  HIS  READERS  WILL  BE  READING  HIS  BOOK  AND  NEVER  LOOKING  UP  THE  VERSES  IN  THE  BIBLE,  NEVER  READING  THE WHOLE  CONTEXT.  IT  MAKES  SENSE  TO  HIM  AND  HIS  READERS  BECAUSE  IT'S  BASED  UPON  THE  SILLY  IDEA  OF  THE  SECRET  RAPTURE,  AND  PUTTING  EZEKIEL  38, AND  39  IN  THE  WRONG  PLACE  AND  NOT  READING  THE  CONTEXT,  AND  ALSO  THE  LACK  OF  JUST  USING COMMON  SENSE  OF  THE  LITERAL  FULFILLMENT  OF  THIS  PROPHECY,  WHICH  MAKES  COMMON  SENSE  WHEN  YOU  PUT  IT  AFTER  THE  RETURN  OF  CHRIST  AND  NOT  BEFORE  THE  RETURN  OF  CHRIST,  AND  CERTAINLY  NOT  BEFORE  THE  GREAT  TRIBULATION.



A Shift in the Balance of Power



"When God destroys the massive northern military coalition, the balance of political and religious power in the world will shift. This will make things much easier for the antichrist.



(HUMMMM.....AND  VERY  EASY  FOR  THE  JEWS  IN  ISRAEL  AS  THEY  WILL  HAVE  GOD'S  SPIRIT  POURED  OUT  ON  THEM, [CHAP. 39:29] AND  SO  WILL  NOT  BE  FOOLED  BY  THE  ANTI-CHRIST,  AND  WILL  BE  IN  THE  "SECRET  RAPTURE"  AND  OFF  TO  HEAVEN,  WHEN  THE  TRIBULATION  BEGINS - TONGUE  IN  CHEEK  I  SPEAK  -  Keith  Hunt)



More specifically, the destruction of the northern invaders will pave the way for the antichrist to rise to power. With both Russia and a number of oil-wealthy Muslim nations out of the way, far fewer nations will have the political clout to challenge his authority when he comes into power early in the tribulation period. Arnold Fruchtenbaum makes this note: "The eastern balance of power will collapse with the fall of Russian forces and her Muslim allies in Israel and the destruction of Russia itself. With the eastern power destroyed, this will open the way for a one world government."7



(THERE  WILL  BE  NO  ONE  WORLD  GOVERNMENT....EVER,  UNTIL  CHRIST  COMES  TO  BRING  THE  KINGDOM  OF  GOD  OVER  ALL  NATIONS.  AND  AS  ISRAEL  WILL  HAVE  GOD'S  SPIRIT  POURED  OUT  ON  THEM,  THEY  WILL  ALL  BE  IN  THE  SECRET  RAPTURE,  AND  NEED  NOT  WORRY  ABOUT  ANY  ANTI-CHRIST,  COVENANT  MAKING  WITH  THE  BEAST,  OR  FLEEING  FROM  JERUSALEM.  AND WITH  THAT  A  WHOLE  BUNCH  OF  OTHER  PROPHECIES  ABOUT  JEWS  IN  AND  AROUND  JERUSALEM  BEFORE  THE  GLORIOUS  VISIBLE  COMING  OF  CHRIST,  MEANS  ABSOLUTELY  NOTHING.  THE  SILLY  AND  FANCY  IDEAS  OF  MEN,  MAKE  THE  WORD  OF  GOD  OF  NO  EFFECT  -  Keith Hunt)



As we have seen, this will also enable the antichrist to sign a peace pact with Israel (Daniel 9:27), guaranteeing that Israel will be protected. Muslim forces will no longer be a threat. As well, this likely explains why Israel is able to build its temple early in the tribulation period. After all, if the Muslims were still in power in the early part of the tribulation period and in control of the temple mount in Jerusalem, Israel would not be able to build its temple there. But if all the Muslim armies are largely destroyed by God prior to the beginning of the tribulation, this major obstacle to Israels rebuilding of the temple is removed.
