THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
enthusiasts think WE ARE starting fulfillment of Old Testament Ezekiel's prophesies in chapters 36-39 of that great book.
Developing situations in Asia, Israel, Iran, etc., are leading to such thinking.
I think there is much much more to the equasion than this.
The Kings and Rulers in Psalm 2 (below) are driving the world intensionally, toward a train wreck.
They are using a "perfect storm" strategy.
There has been
a huge military buildup in the Persian Gulf area in this last month (January 2012).
See news report.
It sure looks like an attack on Iran is determined and imminent.
And it is likely to make for lots of trouble world wide.
I think there
will be a huge, apparently spontaneous, uprising from the, pre-arranged "occupy wall street" folks,
demanding a one world government to save us.
This is, of course, the exact, intentional,
objective of the globalists.
Anti-Christ will eventually appear on the scene, to lead this government, and under his power the Seventieth Week of
Daniel (see below) will commence and provide the umbrella of protection for Ezekiel 36 & 37.
HOWEVER, I THINK THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT WILL BE FORMED, AND, IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME BEFORE EZEKIEL'S PROPHESY
I THINK THE GLOBAL GOVERNMENT WILL NEED SOME TIME TO DO THE PREPARATORY
WORK, SO EZEKIEL'S PROPHESY CAN GET GOING.
TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY, THEY NEED SOME
TIME TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER. But, maybe not very much.
BEFORE THEY ARE
READY FOR THE ANTI-CHRIST TO COME, AND THEY HAND THE WORLD GOVERNMENT OVER TO HIM.
WITH THE RECENT HUGE MILITARY BUILDUP NEAR THE STRAITS OF HORMUZ, IT SURE LOOKS LIKE WORLD LEADERS ARE READY TO DO
Realize, (see Psalm 2 below and some of my other web pages), that the world
leaders are working for the same supernatural, evil, Satan, Devil.
It has to
be largely choreographed well ahead of time.
It will look to us non-elite folks
like all hell is breaking loose.
It will be terrifying -- the only chance of
survival may seem to be a one world government.
There is that old globalist saying,
"World problems demand world solutions."
But, I believe, it will, mostly,
be for this exact effect.
The nations which seem to be in conflict are secretly
just acting it out.
There is plenty of evidence, that the earnest effort
to form a one world government has been going on for two hundred years, at least.
are using the well known boiling frog trick.
I don't know if frogs are this dumb,
but it makes a good illustration.
The story goes -- you put the frog in a pan
of water, at room temperature.
You then increase the temperature ever so slowly.
The frog won't sense the slow temperature change, and will cook to death -- and you have your frog legs dinner.
Same way, the globalists have slowly changed many things over a long time period, and most of us frogs have not noticed,
until lately anyway.
Now it is too late.
The only way out, would be a serious mass turning back to the real God.
But, I do not see this happening.
Psalm 2 shows a very very real conspiracy
to overthrow God:
NOTE The "Kings" are NOT THE RULERS -- BECAUSE
THE RULERS ARE DEMONS -- SEE DANIEL CHAPTER 2 BELOW.1Why
do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and
against his anointed, saying,
us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill
7I will declare the decree: the
LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the
earth for thy possession.
9Thou shalt break
them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath
is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
THAT JESUS IS THE ONLY ESCAPE. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY OUT!
|And the armies which were in heaven followed him..
|And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev19
At my page - Living in the Prophet Daniel's Fourth Kingdom I quote
Daniel chapter 2 (Old Testament):
- THE IRON GUYS ARE DEMONS, THE CLAY GUYS HUMANS
40And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth
all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
41And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall
be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
42And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part
of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave
one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall
not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
THE FIRST "THEY"
GUYS IN VERSE 43 ARE DEMONS.
EPHESIANS 6 (NEW TESTAMENT) SAYS:
we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of
this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Supernatural beings are in view here)
Regarding the Great Seal of the U.S. shown above.
32nd U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a Freemason, had the Great Seal placed onto the 1$ U.S. bill.
Research will show that, some, perhaps many of the founders of the U.S were Freemasons and that the origin of
the pyramid picture comes from ancient occult sources.
I think there
is a dualism here - it applies to the U.S., at its founding, as a New kind of thing among nations, but also to a New World
Order, global government of the Earth.
The eye is, in the dualism, said
to be the eye of God or Providence, but in the dualism, the eye the "god of this world," "the great architect
of the world" Satan, actually.
2Corinthians 4:4 (New Testament)
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of
them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
I believe many highly placed people, when they speak of "GOD," are, in their minds, refering
to Satan - he IS their god.
pyramid is completely foreign to the true God of the Bible.
reminds us of Egypt, which God delivered Israel out of.
delivers Christians out of.
There is a saying we hear "If you build
it I will come."
Meaning, if humans get the one world government
pretty well finished, Satan, in the person of the Anti-Christ will come to reign.
The globalist hope is that he will defeat God. (Psalm 2)
believe many leaders, when they say God, they mean Satan.
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:4:
In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.
It seems to me, this huge military buildup in the Persian Gulf,
this month, is NOT for practice.
It is war time.
Thus, they would be starting in earnest the preparatory work for Ezekiel's prophesy to begin to unfold.
I don't believe for a single second, the world rulers are NOT fully aware of this (Ezekiel 36-39).
The Anti-Christ wants a fully reformed Israel, and a re-built Temple.
Somewhere along the line Gog and Magog and their Allies will be forced (with hook in their jaw) into an invasion
of Israel as seen in chapters 38 & 39.
The hook in the jaw will
be necessary because they will be attacking Israel being protected by the great power of the Antichrist.
Ezekiel's prophesies include repopulating Israel, and continues with the new Millennial Temple.
I think we must expect a Tribulation temple first, where the "abomination of desolation" will
take place (see below.)
Book of Revelation 20 is not for the faint of
heart, but is important here.
Ezekiel's prophesy, chapter 40-48, implements
the 1000 year reign of the righteous dead (first resurrection) seen in verses 4-6 below.
They reign with Jesus Christ 1000 years. Revelation 5:10 specifies that they reign on Earth.1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his
2And he laid hold on the dragon,
that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till
the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for
the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received
his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (my
5But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand
years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests
of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
5:10 specifically says: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign
on the earth.
7And when the thousand years
are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9And they went
up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from
God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10And the devil that deceived
them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and
night for ever and ever.
11And I saw a great white throne, and
him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book
was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according
to their works.
13And the sea gave up the dead which were in
it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is
the second death.
15And whosoever was not found written in the
book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
There are many great videos on You-Tube,
etc., and many web sites covering Ezekiel 36-39.
Also the reader can visit the alternative news web sites
to see all of the increasing tensions in the Persian Gulf, and in Asia, and in Palestine etc.
Note -- these involve
Iran (Persia), Russia, connected with Gog and Magog in verse 8 above and also in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.
is involved of course.
Other nations are involved -- listed in Ezekiel 38,39.
Gog/Magog attacks Israel BOTH
before and at end of the Millennium.
I will put the Ezekiel passage itself, in the following sections.
Note that in
Ezekiel 36:23-24 God is regathering Israelites from ALL NATIONS.
THIS HAS NOT HAPPENED
BEFORE. This is NEW!
There was the Babylonian captivity, but NEVER a dispersion
into ALL NATIONS, and a subsequent regathering.
This world wide dispersion occurred after the
destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD, by the Roman Army.
There have been some folks trickle back, but not
a large regathering of Israelites as Ezekiel calls for.
THIS IS A MAJOR REASON EZEKIEL 36-48 IS YET
FUTURE, BUT PERHAPS, NOT BY MUCH.
Furthermore, Ezekiel 36:25-27 says God will give the ISRAELITES
a NEW HEART.
This is NEW.
Note: The New Testament passage Hebrews 8:10,
(also in 10:16), says this has ALREADY OCCURRED to Israelites who have embraced Jesus Christ, THUS, becoming Christians.
is true of all Gentile Christians too.
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house
of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will
be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
But it is FUTURE, for the Israelites Ezekiel
is prophesying about.
This seems clearly to be the expected transition whereby God DISCONTINUES his
work with the largely Gentile CHURCH, --
-- AND RESUMES HIS ANCIENT PROGRAM WITH ISRAEL.
- New Testament passage Romans 11, below, shows that the Church branches, presently grafted into Israel's
root, must be removed, and the natural, Israelite branches re-grafted into their own roots
-- for God to resume his program with Israel.
The Church and Israel are two SEPARATE programs of God,
as seen BELOW.
They are related though.
Thus, the Church must be removed in the RAPTURE, BEFORE GOD RESTARTS
HIS PROGRAM WITH ISRAEL.
1Thessalonians 4:16-17 shows God's removal of the Church, through the atmosphere,
known as the Rapture. It says:
16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the
Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
After this, God will restart his
ancient program with Israel.

be on Earth during the beginning stages of the one world government, BEFORE the Anti-Christ is revealed.
I expect the Church WILL remain on Earth until God is ready to restart his ancient program with Israel.

believe Ezekiel's prophesy must be seen in conjunction with Daniel's (chapter 9) prophesy of Israel's 70 weeks.
The last 7-year, sabbatical, "week" of Daniel's prophesy is when the
"Prince that shall Come," will reign on earth.
"Prince that shall Come," is connected with the "Man of Sin" in 2Thessalonians2, and both are Antichrists.
I SAY BOTH BECAUSE REVELATION 13 TALKS OF TWO BEASTS, ONE FROM THE SEA, ONE FROM THE LAND.
I think it will be his/their umbrella of protection which will allow Israel to
be reinstated and flourish as seen in Ezekiel 36-37.
will be much in his/their interests that Israel be reconstituted, build a temple, and resume their old religious customs.
The Great prophet Daniel
said in chapter 9 of Daniel that 70 sabbatical weeks (weeks of years) are granted to Israel, after 69 weeks Christ is killed,
(a gap, some say parenthesis, intervenes, which is the present Church Age), and, one seven year Jewish sabbatical week is
still to come, with the Temple desecration in mid - week, by the Antichrist, the “Prince that shall Come.”
Daniel says in 9:24-: Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people
and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity,
and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem
unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall,
even in troublous times.
And after threescore
and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the
city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst
of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make
it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. -- Old Testament
Book of Daniel, chapter 9.
Notice that this Anti-Christ (Prince
that shall come) (who also perpetrates the "abomination of desolation") will confirm the 1 sabbatical
week (7 year) covenant with Israel.
This will provide
them protection until Gog, Magog and their Allies, being "hooked in the jaws" are dragged to an invasion of Israel.
The 70 weeks are for ISRAEL,
NOT, for Christians.
This final 70th week of seven years is understood
to be the Tribulation Period, the last half of which is the Great Tribulation.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:20But
pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since
the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
is believed that this Great Tribulation is the last half of the 7 year Tribulation period, following the Abomination
The Daniel 9 passage indicates this abomination will occur at the mid point of
the 7 year period.
25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the
commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks:
the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come
shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations
27And he shall confirm the covenant with
many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for
the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be
poured upon the desolate.
In stunning confirmation
of Daniel 9, Jesus expected them to know the very day of his first coming.
This event is called "Palm Sunday" in many churches.
Luke 19:42-44: And when he (Jesus) was come near,
he beheld the city (Jerusalem), and wept over it,
If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are
hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee
round, and keep thee in on every side,
shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another;
because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
70th week is also know as the "Time of Jacob's Trouble."
Jeremiah 30 says:6Ask ye now, and
see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail,
and all faces are turned into paleness?
7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but
he shall be saved out of it.
8For it shall come to pass
in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers
shall no more serve themselves of him:
There are numerous
web articles on the 70 weeks of Daniel, and many study bibles and commentaries have articles.
The "day and time" in Luke19 can be calculated from information in the Old Testament Book
of Daniel, chapter 9.
That is why Jesus expected them to know the very
day -- and some of them did indeed know, but most did not.
2Thessalonians 2, below, fits
with Daniel 9:
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming
of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither
by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means:
for that day shall not come, except there
come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above
all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is
God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery
of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth (withholds) will let (withhold), until he be taken out of the way.
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with
the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working
of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because
they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong
delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
But we are bound to give thanks always
to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification
of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus
Christ. -- 2Thessalonians 2.
Note, in the second
paragraph above tremendous delusion is going to be used -- it will be impossible for non believers to withstand.
This passage is difficult, but there are strong reasons to believe Christians will not be on Earth
at the coming of the Man of Sin, but Matthew 24 shows that Jews will be (abomination of desolation).
The believers are scolded in the first two verses of 2Thessalonians2
for being unnerved by reports the Day of Christ was at hand.
passage starts with, by our gathering together unto him, which would be the Rapture, the evacuation
of believers from the earth's face.
This would be PRIOR
to "the Day of Christ" -- Christ's coming to the earth's surface in judgment.
We believe that about 7 years later,
Christ will return to the earth's surface in judgment.
these believers would be very alarmed were this coming of Christ to the earth be imminent.
The phrase "falling away," means a departure, often thought of as a departure from the
true faith, but in at least two very old bibles is translated, "departure," that is the Rapture.
The Geneva Bible is one of the two -- (genevabible.com and genevabible.org) are
This rendering is perfectly legitimate.
I believe God can employ the word in both senses simultaneously,
to mean both a departure from the faith, and from the Earth, too!
The “Man of Sin,” is restrained from being
revealed until the “withholder” is taken out of the way.
is undoubtedly the Holy Spirit indwelling true believers.
believers from the earth, would simultaneously remove the restrainer and usher in a very great departure from the true faith.
The latter parts of 2Thessalonians2 describes such.
Note - this Man of Sin entering the Temple occurs mid-week (3.5 years) into the 7 year
Tribulation period as expected from Daniel's chapter 9 prophesy.
Christians will be removed before the 7 year period in which the Antichrist, (Prince that shall come / Man of Sin)
comes to reign.
As 2 Thessalonians 2 showed, I
believe, the presents of the Christian Church prevents the Man of Sin from being revealed.
The first 3.5 years may seem nice, allowing Israel to live in peace and prosperity.
As I said above, the 70
weeks of Daniel contains the event/concept of the "Abomination of Desolation."
In Matthew 24, Jesus used this term referring to the Daniel 9 prophesy.
It is this event which is in view in 2Thessalonians2 with the Man of Sin sitting in the Temple.
This is very strong reason Christians will have been removed
already, prior to the last "week" (7year period) of Daniel.
Daniels prophesy applies to Israel, not the Church, although there is a hiatus, a parenthesis, in the prophesy, in
which the Church age occurs.
EVENTS TAKING PLACE, OR LIKELY TO
TAKE PLACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST SEEM TO BE CLEARING THE WAY FOR EZEKIEL PROPHESY TO BEGIN UNFOLDING.
But for reasons I gave, regarding the "branches" in Romans 11, in 2 Thessalonians
2, and elsewhere, I believe the Church (all true believers) must be removed from the earth, before the Anti-Christ can come
on the scene in the last week of Daniel.
We need to
make sure we are truly Saved by genuine faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and we need to be about our Lord's business, watching
and waiting for the Lord to take us, his Bride, to be with him in heaven.
|John the Baptist baptising Jesus Christ at his entry to public ministry
ISRAEL RESTORED TO ITS ANCIENT HOMELAND
There are partial fulfillments of Bible Prophesy.
in Matthew 17 we see Jesus showing that John the Baptist was the forerunner and partial fulfillment of the future return of
Elias (Elijah):10And his disciples asked him, saying,
Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11And Jesus answered
and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise
shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
13Then the disciples understood that
he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
We have seen, beginning in 1948 the
RE-CREATION of Israel in Palestine.
This is a partial fulfillment.
It is a precursor to the full fulfillment of Ezekiel's prophesies.
Later in this chapter (36) we see God puts a new heart and spirit in them and they return to him with contrition
of repentance to God.
This has not yet occurred.
Christians make the bad mistake of thinking that modern Israel is God's operation.
IS NOT -- IT IS THE PRECURSOR TO, THE REINSTATEMENT OF GOD'S OPERATION THROUGH ISRAEL -- BUT WE ARE NOT THERE YET.
IT IS EXCITING TO SEE THAT CONTINUING EVENTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST COULD INDEED FREE UP TO WHOLE ANCIENT LAND OF ISRAEL
AS EZEKIEL FORECASTS.
Ezekiel 36:1Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the
word of the LORD:
2Thus saith the Lord
GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:
3Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they have made you
desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken
up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people:
4Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains,
and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became
a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round about;
5Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue
of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart,
with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen:
7Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD;
I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.
8But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your
fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.
9For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown:
10And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and
the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:
11And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle
you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
12Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall
possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.
13Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they say unto you, Thou land devourest up men,
and hast bereaved thy nations:
thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations any more, saith the Lord GOD.
15Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the heathen any more, neither
shalt thou bear the reproach of the people any more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall any more, saith the Lord
16Moreover the word of the LORD
came unto me, saying,
17Son of man,
when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before
me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.
I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted
19And I scattered them among
the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged
20And when they entered unto
the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the LORD, and
are gone forth out of his land.
I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.

TO THE GREAT EXTENT WE SEE TODAY.
say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy
name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
23And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in
the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before
24For I will take you
from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your
filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

26A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and
I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and
ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
29I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn,
and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among

|Ezekiel's Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones ch 37
|"So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up"
Commentators seem to interpret "graves" in the passage (verse 11) below as gentile
nations, from which God is going to be retrieving Israelites.
interpret "whole house of Israel" (verse 12) as ONLY those living at the time.
I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BOTH THESE IDEAS.
Jesus Christ's CLEAR
example in interpreting many Old Testament Passages --
IS that the Bible MEANS
WHAT IT SAYS.
IT SURE SEEMS TO ME GOD IS SAYING HE IS, IN FACT, GOING
TO RAISE THE LONG DEAD ISRAELITES RIGHT OUT OF THEIR GRAVES AND PLACE THEM ALIVE AND WELL IN ISRAEL.
SO, THE VIEWS OF COMMENTATORS MAY BE OK IN TERMS OF AN INCIPIENT FULFILLMENT, BUT IT SEEM SO CLEAR GOD IS
SPEAKING OF MUCH MUCH MORE THAN THE COMMENTATORS SAY.
Early in this web page,
I mentioned the first and second resurrections in Revelation 20.
I think the
commentators are assuming God's bringing Israel out of the graves must happen in one of these two resurrections.
But these resurrections involve the change from mortal beings to immortal beings.
Jesus Christ raised Lazarus from being dead for four days -- but he brought him back to his normal, human, mortal
state, not to an immortal spirit body. See John 11.
37 can certainly BE God really, bringing them all back the same way - to mortal life.
So, it need not be at the first resurrection mentioned in Revelation 20.
There was also a token resurrection in Matthew 27:52And
the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto
54Now when the centurion, and they that were with
him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the

It sure seems to me we should be looking for much more than the standard commentators
Could it be that God will pull the entire dead "House of Israel," out of the

took the Bible straight. THIS IS WHAT A STRAIGHT READ OF EZEKIEL DEMANDS.
Prior to 1948
when Israel was restarted as a Nation, many bible students did NOT have the faith, OR nerve, or whatever, to say
it would really, literally happen, but resorted to non literal interpretations of many Old Testament promises
They tended to wrongly apply these to the Church.
But, some intrepid
bible believer correctly held out for literal fulfillment.
And sure enough, in 1948 Israel was resurrected
as a Nation, on Earth, even bringing back their old Hebrew.
In Romans 11 we are told ALL ISRAEL
SHALL BE SAVED:
25For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery,
lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles
be come in.
26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is
written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are
beloved for the father's sakes.
BUT in Romans 9 "all" is qualified. It tells
us NOT "all" Israel, really IS Israel.
This is somewhat confusing:
say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
2That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
3For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the
4Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption,
and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
5Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed
for ever. Amen.
6Not as though the word of God hath taken
none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
8That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children
of the promise are counted for the seed.
9For this is the
word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.
Jesus Christ speaking
to Israel's religious leaders said in Matthew 7 says:
22Many will say to me in
that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many
23And then will I profess unto them, I
never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
It seems clear that all dead Israelites
are NOT included in Ezekiel's words "whole house of Israel," but certainly ALL "children of the promise"
as stated a few verses above, would be.
Still, this means, as the below passage says, "an
exceeding great army," of Israelites.
I think the commentators DON'T HAVE all the answers.
may need to get closer to fulfillment to see how things will unfold.
37:1The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the
spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and,
lo, they were very dry.
3And he said unto me, Son of man,
can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
5Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall
6And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up
flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
7So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking,
and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy,
son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain,
that they may live.
10So I prophesied as he commanded me,
and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our
bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up
out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall
ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take
another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou
meanest by these?
19Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord
GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will
put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
20And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
21And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among
the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king
to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
23Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things,
nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and
will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and
observe my statutes, and do them.
25And they shall dwell
in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they,
and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
26Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them:
and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the
midst of them for evermore.

I'm not saying I agree with it all, but they show the extensive range and depth of

would end up being the "hooks into thy jaws," in verse 4.
It seems to me in the passage below, the HOOKS are going to be very much more
forceful than a political or military agreement.

Israelites are dwelling safely.
So, assuming the Anti-Christ is providing the

NOW THE END BEGINS IS AN INTERESTING web sight covering this prophetic area.
The following quote is from that
"God gives us the lists the major nations that will attack Israel, and they
• Magog - this is modern day Russia
Persia - this is modern day Iran
• Meshech and Tubal, Togarmah - this region is
modern day Turkey
• Ethiopia - this is modern Ethiopia
Libya - this is modern day Libya
• Gomer - this is modern day Germany
While there is slight debate among bible scholars, the above list represents the best consensus of
of the nations in Ezekiel 38.
Suffice to say that the main players, of which there is no doubt,
are Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya and Ethiopia. Now if we were living in the End Times, there would have to be a growing union
between the biggest players in this group.
A quick look at some recent headlines tells us this:
• Russia, the biggest End Times player, has already helped Iran build a nuclear reactor
• Iran has repeated over and over their desire to wipe Israel off the map
• Iran now has nuclear weapons capable of reaching Israel
These nations will attack Israel, the bible says, "To take a spoil, and to take a
prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places [that are now] inhabited, and upon the people [that are] gathered out of
the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land."
Ezekiel 38:12 "
the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and
4And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy
jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour,
even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee,
and be thou a guard unto them.
8After many days thou shalt
be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of
many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and
they shall dwell safely all of them.
9Thou shalt ascend
and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into
thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them
dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people
that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
13Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto
thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take
away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt
thou not know it?
15And thou shalt come from thy place
out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
16And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as
a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know
me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied
in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall
come up in my face.
19For in my jealousy and in the fire
of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all
creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence,
and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's
sword shall be against his brother.
22And I will plead
against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are
with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am
God, in coming to their rescue may be flatly UPSTAGING the Anti-Christ as their protector.
could be an additional major reason for the Anti-Christ's contempt for God in entering the Temple and becoming the
Abomination of Desolation.
In this chapter we have the information
that the Israelites would burn the enemy war weapons for SEVEN years instead of gathering wood fuel.
If this seven years coincides with the last 7 years of Daniel's 70th week, then we might think that
the invasion shown in these two chapters (38,39) occurs at or near, the beginning of the 7
It is certainly possible that the One World Government (New World Order) will
be in place and providing protection to Israel, maybe a new Pax Romana, prior to the 7 year period of the 70th week,
and prior to the installment of the Anti-Christ.
This would mean that
Israel's receiving the New heart and spirit early on, could follow quite quickly after the Rapture of the Church.
OR, it is possible these 7 years extend beyond the 70th week of Daniel into the Millinium.
This would seem to be very odd, but not impossible.
At the end of this
page I include chapter 12 of Daniel.
I also quote from the note in the New Scofield
Bible regarding the additional time periods of 30 and 45 days mentioned in Daniel 12.
Again, perhaps we will have to watch things unfold, to know exactly how Ezekiel's prophesy will play out.
But, again, I think, careful observers see that our world is rushing toward a huge event.
I would say, even, a perfect storm with the convergence of multiple serious problems.
Absolutely, no accident of course (Psalm2 makes clear).
Ezekiel 39:1Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold,
I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from
the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with
thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall
know that I am the LORD.
7So will I make my holy name known
in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I
am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8Behold, it is come,
and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the
bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they
shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the
11And it shall come to pass in that day, that
I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall
stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of
12And seven months shall the house of Israel
be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the
14And they shall sever out men of continual employment,
passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the
end of seven months shall they search.
15And the passengers
that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it
in the valley of Hamongog.
16And also the name of the city
shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves,
and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains
of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks,
all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19And ye shall eat fat
till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of
war, saith the Lord GOD.
21And I will set my glory among
the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
23And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because
they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they
all by the sword.
24According to their uncleanness and
according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
25Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy
upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely
in their land, and none made them afraid.
27When I have
brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight
of many nations;
28Then shall they know that I am the LORD
their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and
have left none of them any more there.
29Neither will I
hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
(Old Testament) chapter 12:
1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince
which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation
even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall
awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for
ever and ever.
4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words,
and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
5Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the
river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.
one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
7And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the
waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that
it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people,
all these things shall be finished.
NOTE: This should be 360 (days in biblical year) X
3.5 = 1260
8And I heard, but I understood not: then said I,
O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
10Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of
the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be
a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
NOTE: 1290 - 1260 = 30 additional days beyond
those in verse 7
12Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to
the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
NOTE: 1335 - 1290 = 45 additional
days beyond those in verse 11
13But go thou thy way till the
end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
NOTE: I quote her the
New Scofield Bible note at the end of Daniel 12:
"Summary: (1) The time of the end in Daniel begins
with the violation by "the prince that shall come"(ie. "little horn," "man of sin," "beast")
of his covenant with the Jews for the restoration of the Temple and sacrifice (Daniel 9:27), and his presentation of himself
as God, (9:27; 11:36-38; Mt. 24:15; 2 Th.2:4; Rev. 13:4-6; and ends with his destruction by the appearing of the Lord in Glory
(2Th.2-8; Rev 19:19-20). (2) The duration of the "time of the end" is three and one half years, coinciding
with the last half of the seventieth week of Daniel (7:25; 12:7; Rev 13.5). And (3) this "time of the end" is the
"time of Jacob trouble" (Jer. 30:7); "a time of trouble such as never was a nation" (Dan.12:1); "great
tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world...nor ever shall be (Mt.24:21). The N.T., especially The Revelation,
adds many details.
(Dan.12:12) Three periods of "days" date from the "abomination"
(ie. the blasphemous assumption of deity of Deity by the beast, v.11; Mt.24:15; 2 Th. 2:4): (1) Twelve hundred and sixty days
to the destruction of the beast (7:25; 12:7: Rev 13:5; 19:19-20). This is also the duration of the great tribulation. (2)
Dating from the same event a period of 1290 days, an addition of thirty days(12:11). And (3) again fortyfive days are added,
and with them the promise of v12. No account is directly given of that which occupies the interval of seventyfive days between
the end of the tribulation and the full blessing of v. 12. It is suggested that the explanation may be found in the prophetic
descriptions of the events following the war of Armageddon (Rev.16:13-16). The beast is destroyed and Gentile world dominion
ended by the Smiting Stone at the end of the 1260 days, but the scene is, so to speak, filled with debris or the image which
the "wind" must carry away before full blessing comes (2:35).
