Ezekiel


 The prophecies of Ezekiel parallel the prophecies of Revelation. The difference between the two is the perspective of the narrative. Ezekiel is written from the point of view of the people of YHWH. Revelation is written from the perspective of the wicked under the same circumstances. For example, Revelation 13 is a warning about receiving the mark of the beast. Ezekiel 9 is about receiving the mark of YHWH.

Ezekiel is really about a prophecy that has mostly come through for Ephraim/Israel after the return from Babylon. In it, the promises of YHWH are prophesied in a future that YHWH wants to give them according to His promises. But Israel kept on disobeying. So, now we come to the end of time, when YHWH extends the unfulfilled prophecy and promises to global Ephraim/Israel. So, although we have striking similarities, we can see that the differences are related to a bigger plan. All the nations of the earth join Israel through Ephraim/Israel and have the same rights of inheritance as the twelve tribes.

 

The Day of the Master
Most of these Old Testament prophecies are about the coming day of the Master. It is a period when YHWH conquers the evil nations and establishes a kingdom of righteousness. The day of the Master is characterized by several events.

  • Warning the Righteous. Israel is warned to repent and return to the Master. Joel says it should be a time of fasting and mourning.
  • Warning the Nations. The world is warned to repent. Their sins and the reason for their judgment is made open.
  • Leave Babylon. Israel is warned to come out of Babylon so that they do not suffer her punishments.
  • Gathering of Nations. Nations gather to fight Israel. But it is YHWH who really gathers them for a slaughter.
  • The Wrath of YHWH. YHWH sends plagues to punish the wicked and to destroy the earth.
  • Desolation. The land is devastated and Satan is punished.
  • Judgment. The nations are gathered for judgment. Even the dead are resurrected for this final judgment.
  • Rescue. Israel receives salvation and a new, peaceful land.

The Structure of Ezekiel
As I give short examples of the similarity between the two prophecies, notice that they appear to be written in the same order. So, we cannot understand Revelation without understanding the Old Testament. All the New Testament prophecies are repetition of the unfulfilled Old testament prophecies or the repeat of a pattern that YHWH has demonstrated in His history with the tribe of Ephraim and Judah. Revelation indicates that Babylon would return at the end of time. We can learn from that ancient history.Of the 8th

Then I noticed the appearance of His loins and upward something like glowing metal that looked like fire all around within it, and from the appearance of his loins and downward I saw something like fire; and there was a radiance around Him. As the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the surrounding radiance. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Elohim. And when I saw it I fell on my face and heard a voice speaking. (Ezekiel 1: 27-28)

Chapter 2-3: A Prophet is Called
Then I looked and behold, a hand was extended to me and lo a scroll was in it. When He spread it out before me, it was written on the front and the back, and written on it were lamentations, mourning and woe. (Ezekiel 2: 9-10)
This scroll was the covenant which was written on both sides. The lamentations, mourning and woes are a result of the curses. We find the same sequence of events in Revelation. When He ascended the throne, the Lamb opened the sealed scroll which was also written on both sides. When the seven seals were opened, the curses were sent. This is the same as the lamentations on the scroll.

*The Bitter Sweet Scroll. Then He said to me, "Son of man, eat what you find; eat the scroll and go speak to the house of Israel." So I opened my mouth, and He fed me this scroll. He said to me "Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your body with this scroll which I am giving you". Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth.
So the Spirit lifted me up and took me away and I went embittered in the rage of my spirit, and the hand of the Master was strong on me.
(Ezekiel 3: 1-3, 14)

The Angel With the Book
Revelation 4 and 5 also introduces the throne of YHWH, a sealed book written on both sides and the same creatures that Ezekiel saw in chapters one to three.

I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals. (Revelation 5: 1)
We even have an angel who has the same description of YHWH on the throne.
I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his head, and his face was like the sun and his feet like pillars of fire. and he had in his hand a little book which was open. He put his right foot on the sea and his left on the land and he cried out with a loud voice, as when a lion roars; and when he had cried out, the seven peals of thunder uttered their voices. (Revelation 10: 1-3)

When both prophets eat the book, it tastes like honey but later became bitter.
*The Bitter Sweet Book. So I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, "Take it and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey". I took the little book out of the angel's hand and ate it, and in my mouth it was sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter. And they said to me, "You must prophecy again concerning many peoples and nations and tongues and kings". (Revelation 10: 9-11)

* The Flying Scroll. Zechariah saw a flying scroll which had the curse written on both sides.
And he said to me, "what do you see?" And I answered, "I see a flying scroll, its length is twenty cubits and its width is ten cubits". Then he said to me, "This is the curse that is going forth over the face of the whole land. Surely everyone who steals will be purged away by the writings written on one side, and everyone who swears will be purged away according to the writing on the other side". (Zechariah 5: 2-3)

The Book of the Covenant
The seven seals, that this book is the book of the covenant. The opening of the seals revealed the legal terms of the covenant. The blessings and curses. For a rebellious people this caused the curses, or the lamentations and woe. Ezekiel follows the same pattern. The rest of Ezekiel shows that application of this punishment to Israel and the whole world and the promised blessings.

Chapter 4-5: The Prophet As a Sign
Ezekiel was a prophet to the generation that would see the fulfillment of the prophecies. His life and actions became a sign or a living prophecy to the people.
Load the baggage on your shoulder in their sight and carry it out in the dark. You shall cover your face so that you cannot see the land, for I have set you as a sign to the house of Israel. ... Say, "I am a sign to you. As I have done, so it will be done to them; they will go into exile, into captivity". (Ezekiel 12: 6, 11). See also Ezekiel 24: 24.

So, the generation that will see the fulfillment of a major prophecy should expect to see signs that will warn them of the coming fulfillment. The signs will be seen in the odd behavior of their prophets and in the environment around them. The signs will duplicate the fulfillment of the prophecy or their actions while the fulfillment is occurring.

  • Siege. Jerusalem would be surrounded.
  • Confinement. Judah would be confined for forty years and Israel for 390 years.
  • Unclean Food. He ate bread and water. The bread was baked over dung.
  • Fleeing in the Dark. They would dig a hole in the wall and try to sneak out in the dark.
  • Shaving His Head. The disposition of his hair was a sign of how they would die by the sword.

  • 390 Years. The northern kingdom of Israel was exiled to Assyria in 721 until the Greeks defeated the Persians in 331. Only when the Persian and Babylonian regions were defeated could the people taken into these regions by the Assyrian captivity be freed. Instead of there being ten "lost tribes" they seem to be the ancestors of the Samaritans. The Samaritans are descendants of intermarriage between native Israelites and settlers brought in by the Assyrians and Babylonians. By the time of Messiah they were outcasts because they were not as pure as the Jews (descendants of the tribe of Ephraim....)
  • 40 Years. Although the ruling class was exiled in 597 BC, the rest of the people were exiled in 586 BC when the temple was destroyed. The eighteen month siege of Jerusalem began in 588 and Cyrus issued his first decree in 538. But the Persian empire began its expansion in 546BC with the defeat of the Medes and Lydians. This is the forty years of exile which began with a siege that was prophesied by Ezekiel.
    Jerusalem Besieged. Now you son of man, get yourself a brick, place it before you and inscribe a city on it, Jerusalem. Then lay siege against it and build a siege wall, raise up a ramp, pitch camps and place battering rams against it all around. Then get yourself an iron plate and set it up as an iron wall between you and the city, and set your face towards it so that it is under siege, and besiege it. This is a sign to the house of Israel.
    Israel Exiled (390 Years). As for you lie down on your left side and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel on it. You shall bear their iniquity for the number of days that you lie on it. For I have assigned you a number of years corresponding to the years of their iniquity, three hundred and ninety days, so you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.
    Judah Exiled (40 Years). When you have completed these, you shall lie down a second time, but on your right side and and bear the iniquity of the house of Judah. I have assigned it to you for forty days, a day for each year.
    (Ezekiel 4: 1-6)
  • 70 Years. Judah was controlled by Babylon from the time they lost independence at the Battle of Megiddo in 609 until the Persians invaded in 539. This is the seventy years of captivity prophesied by Jeremiah.

Chapter 5-7: Warning: The Wrath of YHWH
As YHWH warns the people about their sins, He reminds them of the curses. Lamentations and woe will come in His judgments.
Moreover, I will send on you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you of children; plague and bloodshed also will pass through you, and I will bring the sword on you. I, YHWH have spoken. (Ezekiel 5: 17)
... "How much more when I send My four severe judgments against Jerusalem: sword, famine, wild beasts and plague to cut off man and beast from it". (Ezekiel 14: 21)

On the day of wrath every precious thing will be useless.
They will fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Master. (Ezekiel 7: 19)
And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more. cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet ... for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste ... "So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence and will not be found any longer. (Revelation 18: 11-12, 17, 21)

Chapter 8: The First Four Commandments and the Abomination
There was abomination in the house of YHWH because the priests broke the commandments and changed the worship of YHWH. This apostasy occurred while the people were captives in Babylon. At the end of time, while we are living in Babylon the Great a similar apostasy occurs. The church and state create a new covenant when they change the law of YHWH and force the whole world to worship the dragon through these laws. They also change the first four commandments.
This pattern also validates our claim that the breaking of the fourth commandment involves sun worship, or in our case, a change from the Sabbath to worship on Sunday, a day dedicated to the Sun. What is also remarkable is that YHWH described each abomination as being worse than the former. So the apostasy is complete when Sun worship occurs.

# Commandment Ezekiel 8 Revelation 13 Revelation 14: 9,11

Messiah Tammuz
Maker of the Sun Sun god
Promised Seed Vegetation god
Crucified and resurrected Death and rebirth
Tammuz was the god of the sun, vegetation, death and rebirth. He rose from the dead every spring. He appears to be usurping the role of Messiah. The name of Yahusha Messiah is the name that we should call upon to be saved. Not Tammuz, the anti-Messiah.

Chapter 9: The Mark of YHWH
When the end comes, the righteous and wicked are separated by a mark. This mark allows death to pass over you. In Ezekiel, one man did the marking and six executed the punishment. During the exodus, it was the house that was marked by the blood of the Passover lamb. Everyone inside the house was saved by the blood of the lamb.
* Mark the Righteous. The Master said to him, "Go through the midst of the city, even through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations which are being committed in its midst".
* Kill the Wicked. But to the others He said in my hearing, "Go through the city after Him and strike; do not let your eye have pity and do not spare." Utterly slay old men, young women, maidens, little children, and women,
* Save the Righteous. but do not touch any man on whom is the mark;
* Start with the S
anctuary. and you shall start from My sanctuary. So they started with the elders who were before the temple. (Ezekiel 9: 4-6) 


In Revelation, both the righteous and the wicked are marked. This is for the purpose of bringing judgment and justice.
*The Mark Of YHWH. Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty four thousand, having *His name and the name of the *Father written on their foreheads*. (Revelation 14 : 1)

*The Mark of the Beast. And he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. (Revelation 13 : 17)
... they have no rest day or night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name (Revelation 14 : 11)
This condemnation mentions perversions of the first four commandments (beast, image, name of the beast and no rest).
665. It came about in the sixth year, on the fifth day of the sixth month ... (Ezekiel 8 : 1)
This was the date after the Babylonian captivity when he had the vision of the apostasy in Jerusalem. Sunset was 666. If you think of the number 666 as any measurement in three dimension then this is also a correlation to the 666 of the parallel story in Revelation 13 with the dimensions related to time.

Chapter 12: No More Delay
The people were beginning to express doubt because the prophecy took a long time to be fulfilled.
Son of man, what is this proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel saying "The days are long and every vision fails"?.
For I the Master will speak and whatever word I speak will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, for in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform it, declares YHWH Elohim.
(Ezekiel 12: 22,25)
and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it, that there will be delay no longer, but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of YHWH is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets. (Revelation 10: 6-7)

In the last days the mockers will essentially claim that the delay was from the beginning of creation.
Know this first of all that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying "Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation". (2 Peter 3: 3-4)

Chapter 13-33: Warning the Nations
Several chapters were a warning to Israel and the surrounding nations and the leaders. This is equivalent to the message of the three angels, who have the gospel for every tribe, nation and language.
And I saw another angel fly in mid-heaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people. And he said in a loud voice, "Fear YHWH and give Him glory because the hour of His judgment has come. Worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and springs of waters". (Revelation 14: 6-7)
All these nations usurped the power of YHWH as ruler and creator and rejoiced in the suffering of Israel.
In punishing these nations YHWH seemed to be saying that the nations sinned when they took advantage of Israel. They should have helped her and comforted her. Instead they looted and plundered and laughed at her calamity. So, even though we will be persecuted, we should have pity on the nations when they are punished.

  • Sodom. Sodom fell because of a sin of immorality during the time of Abraham. Hundreds of years later Sodom fell again because of another set of sins. These seem to be the sins of Laodicea.
    Look, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom; she and her daughters had arrogance, abundant food and careless ease, but did not help the poor and the needy. So they were haughty and committed abominations before Me. (Ezekiel 16: 49-50)
  • Egypt. Israel turned to Egypt for support instead of YHWH. Egypt was the great monster that was in the river. She claimed to have made the Nile. This is the same as the dragon who was in the sea in Revelation 12 and 17. Israel would become a lowly kingdom after this and never rule the nations again. After this time, no Egyptian national became king again. The dynasty of pharaoh passed to foreign conquerors. These foreign kings were later eliminated by the Romans.
  • Babylon. Falls because it tries to be a {elohim} god.
  • Tyre. The king thought that he was a {elohim} god. They were wealthy traders and had a strong army from many nations. They traded in the same merchandise listed in Revelation 18. The were punished for their pride and their predatory behavior. They took advantage of Israel in their weakness.
    Tyre has said concerning Jerusalem, "Aha, the gateway of the peoples is broken; it has opened to me, I shall be filled now that she is laid waste". (Ezekiel 26: 2)
  • Sidon. They may also have scorned and mocked Israel in her suffering. (Ezekiel 28: 21-24)
  • Ammon. They were happy about the destruction of Israel. They had no mercy.
    Because you have clapped your hands and stamped your feet and rejoiced with all the scorn of your soul against the land of Israel. (Ezekiel 25: 6)
  • Moab and Seir. They had no respect for Israel. And they saw no difference between the {Set Apart} holy and the unclean.
    Because Moab and Seir say "Look, the house of Judah is like all the nations". (Ezekiel 25: 8)
  • Edom. They took revenge on Israel and treated them with scorn. Ezekiel 25: 12.
  • Philistines. They took revenge on Israel and treated them with scorn. Ezekiel 25: 15.

Chapter 16 and 23: Babylon, the Mother of Harlots
Babylon is described as two harlot sisters.
Babylon and Her Daughter are Whores. Behold, everyone who quotes proverbs will quote this proverb concerning you, "Like mother, like daughter". (Ezekiel 16: 44)
Babylon is A Naked Whore. ... They will take your sons and your daughters; and your survivors will be consumed by fire. They will also strip you of your clothes and take away your beautiful jewels. They will deal with you in hatred, take all your property, and leave you naked and bare ... (Ezekiel 23: 25-26, 29)

Babylon the Great is also condemned for prostitution and prostituting her daughters and nakedness.
... "Come here and I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality ...
Babylon and Her Daughters are Whores. and on her forehead a name was written, "Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth".
Babylon is a Naked Whore. ... And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire.
(Revelation 17: 1-2, 5, 16)

Burned with Fire. They shall not take a woman who is defiled by prostitution. ... And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by harlotry, she profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire. (Leviticus 21: 7, 9)
The daughter of a priest who prostitutes herself is burned with fire. Babylon the Great has a religious origin so she is punished with fire.

Chapter 26-28: The Fall of Babylon and The King of Tyre
This chapter is divided into two distinct parts that describe one person. It captures the description of Satan in Revelation 17 who is an eighth head that is part of the seven heads. They are separate, yet one. So we see that the little horn who is pretending to be god is an extension of Satan who is trying to remove YHWH from His throne.

  • The King of Tyre. Verses 1 to 10 describe a man who wants to be like Elohim.
    ... because your heart is lifted up and you have said, "I am elohim/god, I sit in the seat of gods in the heart of the seas; yet you are a man and not Elohim, and you make your heart like the heart of Elohiim. " (Ezekiel 28: 2)
    It uses the same language that is used to describe the little horn power that usurped the throne of Elohim. (Daniel 8: 23-24; Daniel 11: 36; Revelation 13: 5-7; 17: 3)
  • Satan. Verses 11 to 19 describes this same person as Satan who coveted the throne of YHWH. So, as he condemns the king of Tyre, YHWH is comparing his sin to the sin that caused Satan to fall. So YHWH merges the descriptions. Because, in the end, similar kingdoms will arise and emulate Satan and YHWH will make them and Satan fall in the same way, and for the same reasons that He made the king of Tyre fall.
    ... you had the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of YHWH, every precious stone was your covering ... You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until unrighteousness was found in you ... all who know you among the peoples are appalled at you. You have become terrified and you will cease to be forever. (Ezekiel 28: 12-13, 15, 19)
  • The King of Babylon. Isaiah 14: 12-21 describes Satan in the same way. Satan is the king of Babylon.
    How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! But you said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven, I will raise my throne above the stars of YHWH ... I will make myself like the Most High". ... Those who see you will gaze at you, they will ponder over you saying "is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world like a wilderness and overthrew cities, who did not allow his prisoners to go home?" (Isaiah 14: 12, 16)

Chapter 34: Judgment of the House of YHWH
This chapter describes the duties of the good shepherd and the judgment that will fall on both the bad sheep and the bad shepherds. In the prophecy of the seven churches in Revelation 1 to 3, we show how Yahusha was the good shepherd to a series of bad Congregation/churches. By the time of the judgment, it would be the time of the seventh church. The church of Laodicea would be the Congregation/church that would be judged.
Therefore, thus says the Master to them, "Behold, I even I will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep". ... Therefore I will deliver My flock, and they will no longer be a prey; and I will judge between one sheep and another. (Ezekiel 34: 20, 22)

So because you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing", and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. (Revelation 3: 16-17)

Chapter 37: The Revival of the Dry Bones
After the judgment of the Congregation/church comes the resurrection of the Congregation/church. The concept of a resurrection is fully described in at least three places in the old testament.
Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but others to disgrace and everlasting contempt. (Daniel 12: 2)
Your dead will live. Their corpses will rise. You who lie in the dust awake and shout for joy, for your dew is as the dew of the dawn, and the earth will give birth to the departed spirits. (Isaiah 26: 19)
So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceeding great army. Then He said to me "Son of man, this is the whole house of Israel ..." (Ezekiel 37: 10-11) Ephraim was Jacob/Israel's firstborn heir (Deuteronomy 21:17; 1 Chronicles 5:1,2; Ezekiel 37:19);

Revelation describes three resurrections, one thousand years apart. The first is for the righteous, the second is for those from Adam to the death of the Messiah, the third is for the wicked.  http://www.lwmlc.com/3-resurrections.php
... and they came to life and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years ... this is the first resurrection ... (Revelation 20: 4-5)

Chapter 38-39: Armageddon (Gog and Magog)
After the wicked are resurrected and judged and condemned to death, and they try to fight for the city of YHWH.
Son of man, set your face towards Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal and prophesy against him ... This says the Master, it will come about on that day, that thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil plan, and you will say, "I will go up against the land of unwalled villages, I will go against those who are at rest, that live securely, all of them living without walls and having no bars or gates".
Siege of Ancient Jerusalem. You will come from your place out of the remote parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great assembly and a mighty army.
Seven Last Plagues. With pestilence and with blood I will enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him and all his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain, with hailstones, fire and brimstone.
(Ezekiel 38: 2, 10-11,15, 22) In verse 13, This could be a coalition led by the USA, Spain and others. Note: More investigation will be done
In verse 14 this is the Millennial reign. In verse 20, we find as stated in the Scroll of Revelation, YHWH's response by supernatural power will be swift and immediate. In verse 22 We find sudden destruction.

In Chapter 39, we find Yahuah dealing with Isreal and Judah,There is sudden destruction, the leader known as the anti-moshiach, since he is not thrown into the lake of fire until after the millennium and Gog-Magog war/rebellion, Aramaic Peshitta replaces Gog with China, making this a confederacy of Moslems, Russia and China, Mongolia in Aramaic Peshitta, Japan according to Peshitta, The ultimate purpose of the battle of Gog and Magog is to preserve Yisrael in the kingdom glory, reestablish YHWH among his people Yisrael, Deals with all 12 tribes, By definition, In verse 28; based on the full revelation of Scripture, "none of them" would mean none who are part of the elect remnant, since we know that many who hate YHWH and/His Son, will not be returning spirtually, or physically, and To start the 8th Day, with eternity being when all things become new, or are considered fully renewed.

At the end of time, the people are divided into two nations. The righteous nation of global Israel will be safely in the city of YHWH. The wicked are the nation of Gog from the land of Magog. They are led by Satan. Ezekiel gives us much more information. But Revelation gives us more context.
Siege of the New Jerusalem. When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore. And they come up on the broad plain of the earth and surround the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them. (Revelation 20: 7-9)

The Last Plague
A plague and a rain of fire fall on the wicked when they surround the city of Jerusalem and try to attack the righteous.
Now this is the plague with which the Master will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem, their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth. (Zechariah 14: 12)

  • Before the Second Coming. The plague will be the seven last plagues and the rain of fire will be the hail stones at the Second Coming. The siege will be the persecution of the Congregation/church and the surrounding of Israel.
  • After the Second Coming. The plague will cause them to rot while they are still standing and the hail of fire will be hell fire. The city will be the New Jerusalem.

The Last Two Nations
After the millennium there are only two nations.

  • Israel/Ephraim. Twelve tribes whose leader is Yahusha. These are those who are righteous by faith like Abraham.
  • Magog. One tribe whose leader is Gog (Satan). These are the disobedient who chose not to believe.

Who is the King of the North?
One common interpretation of the identity of Gog and Magog is that it is the nations of Russia and China who will attack Israel during the battle of Armageddon. They are the kings from the remote parts of the north. Revelation clearly places the siege of Jerusalem by Gog and Magog after the millennium. Therefore Satan is Gog, the king of the North.

Destruction (Armageddon)
Preparation for Armageddon Feast of Birds Battle of Armageddon
Gog: Anti-Messiah and Babylon Gog: Satan
However, we notice that the events before and after the millennium are a copy of each other.

  • War. Before the millennium there is only preparation for the battle of Armageddon. The war occurs after the millennium.
  • Elohim Comes. Messiah physically comes to the earth at the end of the tribulation.
  • Judgment of the Wicked. The wicked are judged and punished with the seven last plagues along with the lake of fire  http://www.lwmlc.com/holy-days.php
  • Resurrection. There is a general resurrection before and after the millennium. The righteous are resurrected before the millennium and the wicked after.
  • Jerusalem is Surrounded. Jerusalem is surrounded by the wicked in anticipation of killing the righteous both before and after the millennium. The powers that do this also deserve the title of Gog.
  • Gog Because Satan will impersonate the Messiah in a false Second Coming before the millennium, he is probably the ultimate king of the north before the millennium who controls the evil, global ruler.
    This person convinces the world to start a war against the righteous and Satan appears in person to reinforce this edict. Prophecy describes both Satan and two world leaders as controlling the world at the end of time. It takes the combined power of these three forces to push the world into persecution. All these powers sit in the physical temple of Elohim acting like a god. And, Satan transfers his authority to these groups to act on his behalf.

    Yahuah will fulfill His covenant promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Yahuah's "chosen people" (Jer. 31:31-34; Rom. 11:25-26). " (Rom. 11:29).

  • Ephraim's seed was to become "Multitude of Nations" meaning "a fullness of gentiles" (Genesis 48:19; Romans 11:25; Isaiah 8:14); the word fullness is also used in Psalm 24:1; Israel was divided into Two Houses - Ephraim/Israel and Judah (1 Kings 1:11; 11:31-35; 12:15 - "the cause was from YHWH"; 12:24 "for this thing is from Me");

    Ezekiel is not the only Old Testament prophet who saw a future, glorious Temple for YHWH's chosen people Israel, complete with animal sacrifices, in the Holy Land:

    Prophecies of a Millennial Temple:

    Joel 3:18
    Isaiah 2:3
    Isaiah 60:13
    Daniel 9:24
    Haggai 2:7,9


    The prophecy which starts at Ezekiel 40 is clearly distinct from the preceding prophecies. This is indicated by the giving of the day it was received explicitly. It is therefore unrelated chronologically to the preceding chapters, some of which may relate to events which are still to take place.


    Beginning in Verse 3 This describes Yahshua, In verse 4 we have a glimpse into the future of New Jerusalem, In verse 39 we find And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay on it burnt offering and the sin offering and the trespass offering. "For both houses in the millennium", and in verse 40 we and at the side outside, as one goes up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables; and on the other side which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables. This is for both now restored houses


    It was a vision (40:2) which was shown to Ezekiel to declare to Israel. There is no suggestion that he saw some actual structure which existed in the future. Ezek 40:5-42:20 provides a highly detailed description of the measurements, which were clearly intended to provide all the details essential for the construction of a Temple exactly like the one seen in the vision.

    The appearance of the Glory of Elohim Ezekiel 43 begins with a distinct change in tone as the "glory of Elohim" appears, in the same form as it had twice previously appeared to Ezekiel, and enters the house by the east gate (Ezek 43:2-5). In verses 3 and 7, Yahusha continues to appear to Ezekiel, in much the same manner as He had earlier.
    But we notice in the last of verse 7, this is during the age to come, it is future.
    In verse 10 we see all 12 tribes are spoken of. The house of Israel, “this is referring to the whole house”



    In chapter 44 verse 2 YHWH said, this gate shall be closed, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because YHWH, the Elohim of Yisrael has entered in by it, therefore it shall be closed, This was fulfilled when Yahusha entered the Eastern Gate as recorded in the Good News. Today the gate remains shut, In fulfillment of this prophecy. The Moslems think they have successfully stopped the coming of the “Jewish” “Moshiach” by cementing the gate in the middle ages and putting graves in front of the Eastern Gate, since no Torah keeping Jew--not to mention a priest--would step on graves. In fact they were merely being used to fulfill this prophecy, proving that the Moshiach had actually already come.

    Then in verse 3 we find Ha Sar-The Prince-The Moshiach. Only He can walk through walls to get into that gate to perform millennial Temple duties., and that happened at His first advent and will happen again during the Millennial Temple services.

    In verse 7 we find The binding act of circumcision is eternal, as seen here in the age to come.

    In verse 9 we find Clearly all the redeemed in the millennium are Yisraelites, because YHWH states that NO gentiles or strangers will be worshipping Him.

    The rest of the chapter refers to the splendor of the millennial Temple, and the millennial people, and the requirements assorted with it.

    Chapter 45 is speaking of the future kingdom and the requirements, all 12 tribes, in the age to come will be led by Moshiach Himself will lead, and the sons of Yisrael in worshipping His Father.
    If we are Yisrael we should do that now.
    Not also how all the feasts of YHWH are eternal, and have NEVER been set aside..
    In verses 22, The Moshiach walks the Torah walk, and proves He is the real Moshiach. It will be open to remind Yisrael of just how set apart are the Shabbats and New Moons.

    In Chapter 46 we find in verse 6, In the age to come sacrifices, Yahusha will teach all Yisrael that all worship must be directed to the Father YHWH. He will watch Him in action,

    In Chapter 47 we find Symbolic of moving forward and never backward in our walk with YHWH, always following Yahusha as our older brother on a daily basis, we are sons of Yisrael, some to become Priests. He rules and reigns in right ruling, this is a prophecy stating that He will not abuse the people, unlike both houses in the days of their abusive kings.
    we find in verse 8; the earth shall be healed, probably the Dead Sea, We find in verse 9 and idiom meaning Yisraelites as seen elsewhere. YHWH will heal them through the healing waters of the age to come.
    We find in verse 12 Eternity described, as seen vividly in Revelation 22: 1-3. The two banks represent two houses, both receiving life, food, and healing in an eternity with YHWH.

    In Chapter 48 We find All tribes must be open to all who wish to live with them. This will happen in the millennium. When all tribes are revealed more clearly in the kingdom, strangers can choose, but right now, we can only choose Yahusha to get in, since we do not always know tribal affiliation.
    Even Moshiach has an initial land inheritance in Yisrael. Yet according to 1st Corinthians, He will turn over all things in the kingdom to the Father so that at the end of the age, He has no land inheritance, for He IS YHWH. In the flesh and does not need land.
    Note that believers in the age to come will divide the land and choose a tribe after their return. Many Ephraimites will be choosing a tribe, if one has not been revealed to them by the Set Apart Spirit.

    In order to affirm the entrances recorded in the Scroll of Revelation, Ezekiel speaks of the same 12 gates as 12 exits, giving a second witness to the 12 gates named after the 12 tribes of Yisrael..

    NO gate for Christians or gentiles, meaning all believer must be part of the Commonwealth of Yisrael to enter the New Jerusalem.
    In a very interesting switch, the tribes have gates named in a different direction that the original order of camping around the wilderness Tabernacle as found in Numbers. This is all part of YHWH keeping His word to make all things new, Including tribal positioning in the age to come.
    Notice in verse 32, And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.
    Notice the name Joseph.
    Abraham was promised a countless progeny (Genesis 12:3; 15:5);
    2. This promise was given to Isaac (Genesis 26:2-5);
    3. To Jacob (Genesis 28:3);
    4. To Joseph (Genesis 48:3,4);
    5. To Ephraim (Genesis 48:13-20);
    6. Ephraim was Jacob's firstborn heir (Deuteronomy 21:17; 1 Chronicles 5:1,2; Ezekiel 37:19);
    7. Ephraim's seed was to become "Multitude of Nations" meaning "a fullness of gentiles" (Genesis 48:19; Romans 11:25; Isaiah 8:14); the word fullness is also used in Psalm 24:1;
    8. Israel was divided into Two Houses - Ephraim/Israel and Judah (1 Kings 1:11; 11:31-35; 12:15 - "the cause was from YHWH"; 12:24 "for this thing is from Me");

    2 Corinthians
    11:22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.

  • Realize who you are, through Yahusha we are Israel, the promise came on down though Ephraim
    You are Israel, you are from the tribe of Ephraim.

    Bless Yahuah Holy Name
    Thank you Yahusha
    Through Yahusha the garden has been restored, though Yahusha, we the people are found, we have been shifted among the nations, into the wilderness for safe keeping
