Destruction of Unholy Alliance (Ezekiel 39)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          After various small nations and tribes mentioned within Ezekiel 38 being within a central mass of land I'm sitting here and wondering to myself, "Is it possible Gog is a title of a leader, a ruler over 'Magog--Rosh, Meshech, Tubal, Gomer and Togarmah?'" Considering I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and His Father is the God of the known universe I'm leaning towards the fact of the way He phrased it to Ezekiel: "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog" (Ezekiel 38:2, New King James).


Nations Against Israel (Ezekiel 38)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          As we get nearer the end of the study of Ezekiel and the prophecies we see God getting more active on Israel's behalf. It goes back to where in Ezekiel 27 we read, about a prophecy God levels on Tyre, "Those from Persia, Lydia, and Libya were in your army as men of war; they hung shield and helmet in you; they gave splendor to you...Tarshish was your merchant because of your many luxury goods. They gave you silver, iron, tin, and lead for your goods. Javan, Tubal, and Meshech were your traders. They bartered human lives and vessels of bronze for your merchandise. Those from the house of  Togarmah traded for your wares with horses, steeds, and mules. The men of Dedan were your traders; many isles were the market of your hand. They brought you ivory tusks and ebony as payment" (Ezekiel 27:10, 12-15, New King James).

Israel the Nation Born: Re-born by God (Ezekiel 37)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          When I say what I do here it's from reports I've heard from before I was born. In 1948 two nations were responsible for the people of Jacob to have a homeland named for them: Israel became a nation! It's not that they were never a nation to begin with, for God says so.
