Preparation for attack

Preparation For Attack.

8 “After 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.

9 Thou 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”. Ez 38.

What nations to attack

What Nations to Attack?

1 ¶ “And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal”… Ez. 38.

Allies of gog

5 “Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

  • “at rest” means,“to be quiet, be tranquil, be at peace, be quiet, rest, lie still, be undisturbed.”

  • Used as such alwayson the 41 occasions in which it occurs in the Hebrew Old Testament.


Israel At Rest?

  • Does such a condition of “rest” describe Israel at any stage since 1948 or before?

  • If not must describe future condition.

  • This very peace will induce the Northern – led attack.

    ”For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (1 Thess. 5)



  • STEP 1 NATIONS ARE GATHERED TOGETHER. 14 “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty”. Rev 16.

  • STEP 2 JESUS TAKES HIS FOLLOWERS.15 “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame”. Rev 16.





17 ¶ And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.“ Rev 16.

Seventh vial summary

Seventh Vial – Summary.

  • 16:17 ¶ “And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done”.

  • Quoting from Ezekiel of same event and time - God’s victory against the invaders of Israel:-

    8 ¶ “Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken”. (Ezek 39)

Second stage of victory

Second Stage of Victory.

  • 14:18 And another angel … cried … to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

  • Grape harvest comes after grain - wine production symbolic of false teaching.

  • Vine of the earth harvest - subsequent to Armageddon – eliminates false teachers and rebellion in Europe.

  • Read in conjunction with Section 39.

Fall of the nations

Fall of the Nations.

  • Symbolic and physical earthquakes achieve destruction of world orders - political, social and religious.

  • 18 “And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great”. Rev 16.


  • 19 “And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

  • And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

  • And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.” Rev 16.
