Israel's Exceedingly Great Army

So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.  -- Ezek.37:10, NJKV

Ezekiel 37:10 informs us that Israel, rising from a seemingly helpless fate, will establish for itself an "exceedingly great army." The Jews will change from victims to victors, from destroyed to destroyers, and from hunted to hunters. Today we witness the doors to the Holy Land, which approximately 2000 years ago bid them a hostile farewell, re-opening. One by one, they come home to Israel. With the Holocaust behind them and their ancient enemies before them, they arrive with one eye on the farm/ and the other on the fight......

(WHAT  TERRIBLE  UNDERSTANDING  he  has  for  Ezekiel  37.  The  context  tells  you  that  this  is  so  important  that  the  House  of  Israel  and  the  House  of Judah  will  be  joined  together  AGAIN,  which  most  orthodox  Jews  know  has  never  happened  since  they  were  divided  after  the  death  of  Solomon.  And  the  CONTEXT  within  chapter  37,  makes  it  clear  WHEN  the  joining  of  the  two  sicks  will  be......verse  24....DAVID  will  be  resurrected  as  king  over  them.  It is Jeremiah 30:1-9.  It  is  all  done  at  the  coming  of  the  Messiah  in  power  and  glory  to  gather  Israel  and  Judah  from  all  parts  of  the  is  Isaiah  11.   Mark  my  words!  This  gathering  has  nothing  to  do  with  Jews  in  the  20th  century  returning  to  the  Holy  Land  -  Keith Hunt)

7. God gathers the Jews into the land of Israel 

This gathering is foretold in numerous scriptures, just a few of which I will list. This present Aliyah process, whereby the world is witnessing the immigration of world. Jewry back into the land of Israel, is the fulfillment of this gathering.24

For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. (Ezek. 36:24, NKJV)

Therefore prophesy and say to them, "Thus says the LORD GOD: 'Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.'" (Ezek. 37:12, NKJV)

These passages from the prophet Ezekiel describe in detail the return of the Jews to the Holy Land. He declares that the Jewish people will come out from "among the nations," alluding to the fact that the Jewish people were dispersed worldwide. Secondly, God is rescuing these returning Jews from a horrificaliy grave Holocaust-type condition.

"It shall come to pass in that day That the LORD shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea. He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four comers of the Earth." (Isa. 11:11-12, NKJV; emphasis added)


Isaiah informs us the LORD will set His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people from "the four corners of the Earth."To set "His hand" refers to an event that occurs because of divine orchestration. In this instance, God takes the responsibility to ensure the survival and return of a remnant of Jewish people. Isaiah declares that it is "a second time;" there is no third, fourth, or fifth occurrence referenced in scripture, making the second time both significant and final. There are theories as to what constitutes the first and the second times, and they are further discussed in my book called Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East inside the chapter called "The Second Time: A Jewish Sequel." lsaiah's use of the four corners idea signifies that the extent of the gathering is worldwide......



7. War breaks out in the Middle East between the confederacy and Israel

Soon to come is a major and devastating war in the Middle East between the confederacy of Psalm 83:5-8 and the exceedingly great army of Israel. The previous Arab advances against Israel will be child's play compared to this final confederate attempt.

"Therefore behold, the days are coming,"says the LORD, "That I will cause to be heard an alarm of war In Rabbah [Amman, Jordan] of the Ammonites; It shall be a desolate mound, And her villages shall be burned with fire. Then Israel shall take possession of his inheritance," says the LORD. (Jer. 49:2, NKJV; emphasis added)

"Behold, he [the confederacy of Esau] shall come up like a lion from the floodplain of the Jordan Against the dwelling place of the strong [the army of Israel]; But I will suddenly make him [Esau] run away from her [Israel]." (Jer. 49:19, NKJV, abbreviated)

"Flee, turn back, dwell in the depths, O inhabitants of Dedan [Saudi Arabia]! For I will bring the calamity of Esau [Southern Jordan] upon him [Esau's descendants],The time that I will punish him." (Jer. 49:8, NKJV)


These three scriptures, along with many more scattered throughout this book, point to a Middle-Eastern war that many Bible scholars do not appear to recognize is coming. Among those who do, many place its occurrence in the final seven-year, tribulation period—I respectfully disagree.This event will occur soon, well in Advance of both the Russian-Iranian Magog invasion and the seventieth week of Daniel (i.e., the Tribulation). 





NOW  STOP  AND  USE  SOME  LOGIC!  This man wants you to believe  there  is  soon  a  coming  war  between  the  Jews  in  the  holy  land  and  some  Arab  nations.  Look  on  a  map  -  see  the  size  of  the  State  of  Israel.  You  can  put  it  at  least  4  times  into  the State  of  FLORIDA!  Look  at  Iran,  see  its  size.  Even  if  the  State  of  Israel  has  some  anti-bomb  rockets [to  intercept  in-coming  nuclear rockets];  it  would  only  take  a  FEW  to  get  through  the  Jew's  defensives  and  hit  Jerusalem  and  a  few  other  places,  and  the  State  of  Israel  would  be  no  more.  The  land  size  of  the  State  of  Israel  is  so  small,  a  few  unclear  bombs  would  wipe  it  off  the  globe......and  this  author  wants  you  to  believe  the  Jews  will  have  a  war  with  a  number  of  Arab  nations....AND WIN!!



During the Tribulation Period, this army, having previously won the acclaimed title of being exceedingly great, will be sidelined for the first three-and-one-half years while a false and temporary peace accord is confirmed.32 Then, in the second three-and-one-half years, this army is defeated, and the Jews flee Israel for safety elsewhere, as the Antichrist advances in an attempt to destroy them.33


8. Israel regains the title "My people Israel"

Somewhere, in the midst of events listed in this chapter, the Jewish State of Israel rises to its former status as the "Client Nation," chosen of God. When this occurs, the nation will again be identified as "My people Israel". The next chapter is dedicated to describe the significance of this national name-changing event. The compilation of scriptures contained in the following chapter encourages the placement of this episode here chronologically. I reference it now to introduce the topic, but defer to the forthcoming My People Israel chapter for further details.


9. Israel decisively defeats the confederacy

The army of Israel will defeat the Psalm 83 confederacy, and as a result God will fulfill the oath He made in Ezekiel 36:7. The confederacy of Arab nations will be humiliated for their attempt to expire the Jewish race. Historians will record their failed attempts alongside those of Hitler at the time of the Holocaust, and Pharaoh at the time of the Hebrew Exodus out of Egypt. Additionally the divine foreign policy contained in the Genesis 12:3 clause of the Abrahamic covenant, will be demonstrated again to the watchful eyes of humanity. The passages below pertain to the Israeli conquest over their ancient enemies.

"The house of Jacob shall be a fire, And the house of Joseph a flame; But the house of Esau shall be stubble;They shall kindle them and devour them, And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau, For the LORD has spoken." (Obad. 1:18, NKJV)


Israel, represented by the house of Jacob and Joseph reduces Southern Jordan, which is represented by Esau, to rubble. This defeat is thorough leaving no survivor. Then your mighty men, 0 Teman, shall be dismayed, To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau May be cut off by slaughter. (Obad. 1:9, NKJV)......


13. Israel dwells securely in the land

Israel is elevated to a condition of regional superiority due to their decisive victory over the confederacy of the surrounding Arab nations. As such, they dwell securely in the Middle East for a time, a point already detailed in the chapter "Psalm 83 or Ezekiel 38: What's is the Next Middle East News Headline."36


14. Israel becomes an exceedingly great army

"So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army." (Ezek. 37:10,NKJV)

Undeniably, the result of all the events outlined in this chapter earns Israel the right to classify its defense force (IDF), as an "exceedingly great army," To genuinely achieve such a title, it is required that the army delivers a decisive victory in a full-scale war. The Psalm 83 confederate advance against tiny Israel will be considered by the international community a full-scale war. Repeating Jeremiah 49:21 :The Earth shakes at the noise of their fall; At the cry its noise is heard at the Red Sea.......
