ISRAEL RETURNS THEN WHAT


 

As we have seen in previous articles, Israel goes into captivity, then the Father and King David rescue the Israelites from the many countries and Islands where they have been driven. 

 

Mic 2:12  "I will surely assemble all of you, O Jacob, I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together like sheep of the fold, Like a flock in the midst of their pasture; They shall make a loud noise because of so many people.

Mic 2:13  The one who breaks open will come up before them; They will break out, Pass through the gate, And go out by it; Their king will pass before them, With the LORD at their head."

 

Psa 14:7  Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD brings back the captivity of His people, Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.

 

They have been held captive for 2-3 years. 

 

Hos 6:1  Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.

Hos 6:2  After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight.

 

The rebels are purged out.

 

Eze 20:38  I will purge the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against Me; I will bring them out of the country where they dwell, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.

 

On their way back to Jerusalem they plunder many nations, the nations who held Israel captive, will become slaves to the nation of Israel.

 

Isa 14:1  For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. The strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob.

Isa 14:2  Then people will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them for servants and maids in the land of the LORD; they will take them captive whose captives they were, and rule over their oppressors.

 

THEN THE BATTLE IN THE VALLEY OF JEHOSHAPHAT

 

This is the destruction of the Arab league and other nations, which was responsible for Israel going into captivity.

 

Joe 3:1  "For behold, in those days and at that time, When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,

Joe 3:2  I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.

Joe 3:3  They have cast lots for My people, Have given a boy as payment for a harlot, And sold a girl for wine, that they may drink.

Joe 3:4  "Indeed, what have you to do with Me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the coasts of Philistia? Will you retaliate against Me? But if you retaliate against Me, Swiftly and speedily I will return your retaliation upon your own head;

Joe 3:5  Because you have taken My silver and My gold, And have carried into your temples My prized possessions.

Joe 3:6  Also the people of Judah and the people of Jerusalem You have sold to the Greeks, That you may remove them far from their borders.

Joe 3:7  "Behold, I will raise them Out of the place to which you have sold them, And will return your retaliation upon your own head.

Joe 3:8  I will sell your sons and your daughters Into the hand of the people of Judah, And they will sell them to the Sabeans,  To a people far off; For the LORD has spoken."

Joe 3:9  Proclaim this among the nations: "Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, Let them come up.

Joe 3:10  Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, 'I am strong.' "

 

Notice the mighty ones of God are summoned for this battle.

 

Joe 3:11  Assemble and come, all you nations, And gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O LORD.

 

Notice that the nations which are summoned are the heathens.

 

Joe 3:12  "Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations.

Joe 3:13  Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; For the winepress is full, The vats overflow For their wickedness is great."

Joe 3:14  Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

 

REPENTANT ISRAEL BUILD THE TEMPLE

 

The temple will be built. 

 

Zec 1:16  'Therefore thus says the LORD: "I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; My house shall be built in it," says the LORD of hosts, "And a surveyor's line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem." '

 

Once God is happy with Israelís attitude they are given the plans of the temple.  They build the temple. 

 

Eze 43:10  "Son of man, describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern.

Eze 43:11  And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the temple and its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, its entire design and all its ordinances, all its forms and all its laws. Write it down in their sight, so that they may keep its whole design and all its ordinances, and perform them.

 

The temple is built under the direct supervision of the Father, and King David. 

 

Zec 6:15  Even those from afar shall come and build the temple of the LORD. Then you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you. And this shall come to pass if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God."

 

Psa 78:69  And He built His sanctuary like the heights, Like the earth which He has established forever.

Psa 78:70  He also chose David His servant, And took him from the sheepfolds;

Psa 78:71  From following the ewes that had young He brought him, To shepherd Jacob His people, And Israel His inheritance.

 

Whilst the above verses are primarily talking about Israel, in the time of King David; this verse is dual and refers to the future temple, and the future return from captivity. 

 

Once the temple is built, the Father enters it. 

 

Eze 44:2  And the LORD said to me, "This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it, because the LORD God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut.


THE DECEPTION OF THE LITTLE HORN


The Father then returns to heaven, the church and some Israelites weaken, and fall into the deception of the little horn. 

 

Eze 8:6  Furthermore He said to me, "Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, to make Me go far away from My sanctuary? Now turn again, you will see greater abominations."

 

Dan 7:20  and the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn which came up, before which three fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth which spoke pompous words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.

Dan 7:21  "I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them,

Dan 7:22  until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.

Dan 7:23  "Thus he said: 'The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, Which shall be different from all other kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces.

Dan 7:24  The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings.

Dan 7:25  He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

 

The following scripture shows how the deceived church members treat the genuine members.

 

Mat 24:48  But if that evil servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,'

Mat 24:49  and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards,

Mat 24:50  the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of,

Mat 24:51  and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

There is over 6 years from the time of the daily sacrifice till the cleansing of the temple.

 

Dan 8:13  Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to that certain one who was speaking, "How long will the vision be, concerning the daily sacrifices and the transgression of desolation, the giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot?"

Dan 8:14  And he said to me, "For two thousand three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed."

 

These scriptures show the little horn is the son of perdition, which is one of the evil sons of God.

 

2Th 2:3  Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

2Th 2:4  who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

 

Then the gentiles ask where is your God? 

 

Psa 79:10  Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?" Let there be known among the nations in our sight The avenging of the blood of Your servants which has been shed.

 

The church calls a fast.  God hears them and makes sure they are well fed during the day of the Lord. 

 

Joe 2:15  Blow the trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly;

Joe 2:16  Gather the people, Sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and nursing babes; Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, And the bride from her dressing room.

Joe 2:17  Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, "Spare Your people, O LORD, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, 'Where is their God?' "

Joe 2:18  Then the LORD will be zealous for His land, And pity His people.

Joe 2:19  The LORD will answer and say to His people, "Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil, And you will be satisfied by them; I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.

Joe 2:20  "But I will remove far from you the northern army, And will drive him away into a barren and desolate land, With his face toward the eastern sea And his back toward the western sea; His stench will come up, And his foul odor will rise, Because he has done monstrous things."

Joe 2:21  Fear not, O land; Be glad and rejoice, For the LORD has done marvelous things!

Joe 2:22  Do not be afraid, you beasts of the field; For the open pastures are springing up, And the tree bears its fruit; The fig tree and the vine yield their strength.

Joe 2:23  Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the LORD your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month.

Joe 2:24  The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

Joe 2:25  "So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.

Joe 2:26  You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the LORD your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame.

Joe 2:27  Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the LORD your God And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame.

Joe 2:28  "And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions.

Joe 2:29  And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

Joe 2:30  "And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.

Joe 2:31  The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.

Joe 2:32  And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the LORD has said, Among the remnant whom the LORD calls.

 

The following scripture shows the people want the Father to return.  This proves He has been here rescuing Israel and overseeing the temple construction.

 

Psa 80:14  Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts; Look down from heaven and see, And visit this vine  

 

Once the Father leaves the church members to look after the temple, it isnít long before deceit and rebellion raise their ugly heads. The church becomes divided, and some are practicing abominations in the temple. 

 

Eze 8:14  So He brought me to the door of the north gate of the LORD's house; and to my dismay, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.

 

Then we see that the little horn has intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant. 

 

Dan 11:30  For ships from Cyprus shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and return in rage against the holy covenant, and do damage. "So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant.  

 

The people think that because the Father has returned to heaven that He cannot see what is going on. 

 

Eze 8:12  Then He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, 'The LORD does not see us, the LORD has forsaken the land.' "

 

The heathen defile the temple. 

 

Psa 79:1  A Psalm of Asaph. O God, the nations have come into Your inheritance; Your holy temple they have defiled; They have laid Jerusalem in heaps.

 

Unfortunately Israel and the church have the temple for only a little while.

 

Isa 63:18  Your holy people have possessed it but a little while; Our adversaries have trodden down Your sanctuary.

 

When the abomination of desolation is set up the Israelites are told to flee to the mountains.  Remember on their return from captivity, they are placed in the Jerusalem area.  There are approximately 14 million Israelites in the area.  Some have repented of their wrong ways and have their hearts turned to God. Many evil ones amongst the Israelites have been purged out and raised their heads by this time.  Those who flee to the Valley of Achor sigh for the abominations in Jerusalem.



Whilst they are in the Jerusalem they are fed by Tyre which is Babylon.  Their money from whoredom with the nations of the world, will go to feed and clothe Israel

 

This could well be the reason some of the church members are deceived by the King of Tyre.  He appears to care for Israel, feeding and clothing them.  Remember he is driven by Satan and appears to be something that he simply is not.

 

Isa 23:17  And it shall be, at the end of seventy years, that the LORD will deal with Tyre. She will return to her hire, and commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth.

Isa 23:18  Her gain and her pay will be set apart for the LORD; it will not be treasured nor laid up, for her gain will be for those who dwell before the LORD, to eat sufficiently, and for fine clothing.



THE ABOMINATION IS SET UP

 

The Father sees the church elders in the temple looking to the east.

 

Eze 11:1  Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the East Gate of the LORD's house, which faces eastward; and there at the door of the gate were twenty-five men, among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azzur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people.

 

The man with the ink horn starts to slay the people at the church with the men mentioned above who are sun worshippers. 

 

When the abomination is set up God the Father authorises the slaying of those who do not sigh over the abominations in Jerusalem and marks out those He wants spared.

 

Eze 9:1  Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, "Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand."

Eze 9:2  And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer's inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.

Eze 9:3  Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer's inkhorn at his side;

Eze 9:4  and the LORD said to him, "Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it."

Eze 9:5  To the others He said in my hearing, "Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.

Eze 9:6  Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary." So they began with the elders who were before the temple.

Eze 9:7  Then He said to them, "Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!" And they went out and killed in the city.

Eze 9:8  So it was, that while they were killing them, I was left alone; and I fell on my face and cried out, and said, "Ah, Lord GOD! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel in pouring out Your fury on Jerusalem?"

Eze 9:9  Then He said to me, "The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land is full of bloodshed, and the city full of perversity; for they say, 'The LORD has forsaken the land, and the LORD does not see!'

Eze 9:10  And as for Me also, My eye will neither spare, nor will I have pity, but I will recompense their deeds on their own head."

Eze 9:11  Just then, the man clothed with linen, who had the inkhorn at his side, reported back and said, "I have done as You commanded me."

 

The Father then lands on the Mount of Olives and it splits in two to make a way of escape for the Israelites.

 

Zec 14:4  And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.

 

After this slaying the genuine people will flee to the Valley of Achor.
there are two signs for this,
1. Abomination set up.
2. Jerusalem surrounded by Armies.

 

Mat 24:15  "Therefore when you see the 'ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place"  (whoever reads, let him understand),

Mat 24:16  "then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

 

Luk 21:20  "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.

 

Repentant Israel flee to the Valley of Achor

 

Isa 65:9  I will bring forth descendants from Jacob, And from Judah an heir of My mountains; My elect shall inherit it, And My servants shall dwell there.

Isa 65:10  Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, And the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down, For My people who have sought Me.

 

Hos 2:15  I will give her her vineyards from there, And the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; She shall sing there, As in the days of her youth, As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

 

Once again the Father marries Israel.  He was married to them, but He had to divorce them because of their whoredoms, and total disobedience to Him.  Now they have a change of mind. 

 

Hos 2:16  "And it shall be, in that day," Says the LORD, "That you will call Me 'My Husband,' And no longer call Me 'My Master,'

Hos 2:17  For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, And they shall be remembered by their name no more.

Hos 2:18  In that day I will make a covenant for them With the beasts of the field, With the birds of the air, And with the creeping things of the ground. Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth, To make them lie down safely.

Hos 2:19  "I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me In righteousness and justice, In lovingkindness and mercy;

Hos 2:20  I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, And you shall know the LORD.

Hos 2:21  "It shall come to pass in that day That I will answer," says the LORD; "I will answer the heavens, And they shall answer the earth.

Hos 2:22  The earth shall answer With grain, With new wine, And with oil; They shall answer Jezreel.

Hos 2:23  Then I will sow her for Myself in the earth, And I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy; Then I will say to those who were not My people, 'You are My people!' And they shall say, 'You are my God!' "

 

Isa 54:5  For your Maker is your husband, The LORD of hosts is His name; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.

Isa 54:6  For the LORD has called you Like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, Like a youthful wife when you were refused," Says your God.

Isa 54:7  "For a mere moment I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you.

Isa 54:8  With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you," Says the LORD, your Redeemer.

 

Jer 31:33  But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

Jer 31:34  No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."  

 

Repentant Israel is protected in the Valley of Achor for 3 Ĺ years. 

 

Rev 12:14  But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

 

Repentant Israel is the woman described in the following verse.  The following verses in Revelation are dual and can also refer to the church. 

 

Rev 12:1  Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

 

Notice the description of Israel in these verses. The sun and moon are Jacob and Rachel, the eleven stars are the tribes of Israel {Joseph being the 12th} 

 

Gen 37:9  Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, "Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me."

Gen 37:10  So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?"

 

We have shown very clearly that the woman is repentant Israel and can also mean the church which is about to be martyred by the dragon and others, see  Rev 12 v 7. 

 

The following verse shows how these verses have dual meanings.  The dragon is trying to devour the new knowledge of Jesus Christ as soon as this knowledge is given to the church.

 

Rev 12:4  His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.

 

When Israel flees then the serpent tries to destroy them. 

 

Rev 12:15  So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

 

This flood is the army of Babylon.   

 

When this army tries to attack Israel, the earth helps Israel and the earth devours them. 

 

Rev 12:16  But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

 

The dragon then turns his anger on Godís end time church, notice the remnant have the testimony of Christ.

 

Rev 12:17  And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.  

 

The church suffers great martyrdom at this time. 

 

Psa 79:2  The dead bodies of Your servants They have given as food for the birds of the heavens, The flesh of Your saints to the beasts of the earth.

Psa 79:3  Their blood they have shed like water all around Jerusalem, And there was no one to bury them.

 

Back to repentant Israel and what happens to them. During the time they are in the Valley of Achor

 

Later nations try to come against Israel to destroy them, notice the following. 

 

Eze 38:1  Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

 

The following nations Magog, Meshech and Tubal, are descendants of Japeth and would be Asiatics. 

 

Eze 38:2  "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

Eze 38:3  and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.

Eze 38:4  I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords.

Eze 38:5  Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet;  

 

Gomer and Togarmah are also descendants of Japeth and would be Asiatics. 

 

Eze 38:6  Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops many people are with you.

Eze 38:7  "Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them.

Eze 38:8  After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely.

Eze 38:9  You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you."

Eze 38:10  'Thus says the Lord GOD: "On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan:  

 

Notice the description of Israel dwelling safely in the Valley of Achor
The Israelites have confidence that God will protect them in the Valley. 

 

Eze 38:11  You will say, 'I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates'

 

The Israelites are living very well in the Valley of Achor, with cattle and goods. 

 

Eze 38:12  to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.

 

These nations, Sheba and Dedan, are descendants of Cush, and therefore are black nations.  They ask the Asiatics if they are going to plunder Israel

 

Tarshish is a descendant of Japeth and therefore is Asiatic. 

 

Eze 38:13  Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, 'Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?' " '

 

They do not know that God will protect His people. 

 

Eze 38:14  "Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it?

Eze 38:15  Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army.

 

God allows this to happen so that the heathen will come to know God. 

 

Eze 38:16  You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes."

 

The prophets told of this invasion years ago. 

 

Eze 38:17  Thus says the Lord GOD: "Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?  

 

God will make the earth shake in that day, and the people of the earth will shake at the presence of the Almighty. 

 

Eze 38:18  "And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel," says the Lord GOD, "that My fury will show in My face.

 

All the mountains will be made low. 

 

Eze 38:19  For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: 'Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel,

Eze 38:20  so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.'  

 

Fire and brimstone will fall on them. 

 

Eze 38:21  I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains," says the Lord GOD. "Every man's sword will be against his brother.

Eze 38:22  And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

Eze 38:23  Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD." '

 

When Gog and Meshech and Tubal etc. come up against Israel God kills 5/6 of the men. 

 

Eze 39:1  "And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal;

Eze 39:2  and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel.

Eze 39:3  Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand.

 

The beasts and the birds will eat their bodies. 

 

Eze 39:4  You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

Eze 39:5  You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken," says the Lord GOD.

 

Magog is Asiatic and they live in Islands.  The heathen will know that God is the Holy One in Israel

 

Eze 39:6  "And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.

Eze 39:7  So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them profane My holy name anymore. Then the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

Eze 39:8  Surely it is coming, and it shall be done," says the Lord GOD. "This is the day of which I have spoken.

 

Israel will burn weapons of the Asiatics for 7 years. 

 

Eze 39:9  "Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years.

 

Israel now gets even with the invading Asiatics. 

 

Eze 39:10  They will not take wood from the field nor cut down any from the forests, because they will make fires with the weapons; and they will plunder those who plundered them, and pillage those who pillaged them," says the Lord GOD.

Eze 39:11  "It will come to pass in that day that I will give Gog a burial place there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea; and it will obstruct travelers, because there they will bury Gog and all his multitude. Therefore they will call it the Valley of Hamon Gog.


It takes Israel 7 months to bury the dead of the Asiatics, 5/6 of the army have perished.


Eze 39:12  For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land.

Eze 39:13  Indeed all the people of the land will be burying, and they will gain renown for it on the day that I am glorified," says the Lord GOD.

 

Even after the 7 months of burials is past, the Israelites are still searching for dead bodies to bury.  Men are doing this full time. 

 

Eze 39:14  "They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining on the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search.

 

Any visitor to the land who sees a bone, must mark it for the burial patrol. 

 

Eze 39:15  The search party will pass through the land; and when anyone sees a man's bone, he shall set up a marker by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon Gog.

Eze 39:16  The name of the city will also be Hamonah. Thus they shall cleanse the land." '

 

God instructs the watchman to call in the beasts and the birds for the sacrifice. 

 

Eze 39:17  "And as for you, son of man, thus says the Lord GOD, 'Speak to every sort of bird and to every beast of the field: "Assemble yourselves and come; Gather together from all sides to My sacrificial meal Which I am sacrificing for you, A great sacrificial meal on the mountains of Israel, That you may eat flesh and drink blood.

Eze 39:18  You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, Drink the blood of the princes of the earth, Of rams and lambs, Of goats and bulls, All of them fatlings of Bashan.

Eze 39:19  You shall eat fat till you are full, And drink blood till you are drunk, At My sacrificial meal Which I am sacrificing for you.

Eze 39:20  You shall be filled at My table With horses and riders, With mighty men And with all the men of war," says the Lord GOD.  

 

God shows the heathen His judgment. 

 

Eze 39:21  "I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment which I have executed, and My hand which I have laid on them.

Eze 39:22  So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day forward.

Eze 39:23  The Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore I hid My face from them. I gave them into the hand of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword.

Eze 39:24  According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I have dealt with them, and hidden My face from them." '

Eze 39:25  "Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 'Now I will bring back the captives of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name

Eze 39:26  after they have borne their shame, and all their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, when they dwelt safely in their own land and no one made them afraid.

Eze 39:27  When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations,

 

Israel have been rescued from captivity, every one of them.

 

Eze 39:28  then they shall know that I am the LORD their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer.

 

As we have shown Israel are kept safe and well fed during the Day of the Lord in the Valley of Achor

 

When the Day of the Lord is over, Israel return to their homelands and continue faithfully toward God. 

 

The Father has given Israel the earnest of the Spirit. 

 

Eze 39:29  And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,' says the Lord GOD."


Israel do not depart from the word of God.


Notice also that there will be a physical Israel forever, during which time people will qualify to be born into the God family. 

 

Isa 59:20  "The Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob," Says the LORD.

Isa 59:21  "As for Me," says the LORD, "this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants' descendants," says the LORD, "from this time and forevermore."

 

The Israelites buy land and settle in the old places of Israel

 

Jer 32:42  "For thus says the LORD: 'Just as I have brought all this great calamity on this people, so I will bring on them all the good that I have promised them.

Jer 32:43  And fields will be bought in this land of which you say, "It is desolate, without man or beast; it has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans."

Jer 32:44  Men will buy fields for money, sign deeds and seal them, and take witnesses, in the land of Benjamin, in the places around Jerusalem, in the cities of Judah, in the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the lowland, and in the cities of the South; for I will cause their captives to return,' says the LORD."

 

Israel will suffer greatly during the time of Jacobís trouble, only 14 million surviving this terrible time, however they repent and turn to God forever and God the Father marries them in the Valley of Achor.  They then return to their original homelands. 
Godís church is protected during the time of Jacobís trouble, but is martyred prior to and during the Day of the Lord.  Persecution for them begins before the Day of the Lord. 

 

What a wonderful time is ahead for Israel.  After Jacobís trouble and the captivity they marry God the Father.......can mere man describe the joy that will bring?
