The Bible Believer’s Guide To The Two Different Wars As Found In Ezekiel Chapters 38 And 39

The 38th and 39th chapters of the prophet Ezekiel shows us two different wars, separated by a minimum of 1,000 years. Let’s take a look and see what we find.

Therefore, 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:

There is a big difference when you study Bible prophecy through the filter of other people’s commentaries, and when you study it for yourself from the inerrant, preserved word of God. This is not to say that commentaires written by Godly bible believing teachers are not good, because many of them are. But they should only serve as a starting point for your scripture studies, they should not be a destination unto themselves.

“And 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:” Ezekiel 39:2 (KJV)

The 38th and 39th chapters of the prophet Ezekiel is where many students of prophecy get hopelessly tangled up because they have a lot of commonalities, but they also differ in many key aspects which prove they cannot be talking about the same war. It’s two different wars, separated by a minimum of 1,000 years. Let’s take a look and see what we find.

Ezekiel 39: The Battle of Armageddon after the Time of Jacob’s Trouble

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)

2 Timothy 2:15 commands us to study the Bible like a “workman”, rightly dividing like a blue collar laborer, and God sometimes will make us work a bit before He will reward us with further light on Scripture. He mentions the last battle first, chapter 38 is the Battle of Gog and Magog, and the first battle last as He unfolds for us the Battle of Armageddon that takes places after the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, otherwise called the Great Tribulation. Please allow me to show you what I mean with the clues that the Holy Spirit has left for us.

Armageddon Prophecy Clue #1: “Thou 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. And, 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.” Ezekiel 39:4,17 (KJV)

The sister verse to this one is found in Revelation 19: “And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.” Revelation 19:17,18 (KJV)

Revelation 19 is the chapter showing us the Lord’s Second Coming with us on white horses to fight the Battle of Armageddon. That is the context of Chapter 19. The Battle of Gog and Magog is not listed until Revelation 20, where it clearly tells us that battle is not fought until after the 1,000 Reign of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. See for yourself:

“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall 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.” Revelation 20:7,8 (KJV)

Do you clearly see that Revelation 19 show us the Second Coming of Christ with us at the Battle of Armageddon, followed by the binding of Satan, followed by the 1,000 Year Reign and then the Battle of Gog and Magog? Take a moment and read both chapters consecutively and really grab hold of the context and it will begin to become clear to you. When you read it in context you see the two wars are separated by at least 1,000 years. Back in Ezekiel 39, we find our second clue:

Armageddon Prophecy Clue#2: “And 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.” Ezekiel 39:6 (KJV)

At the end of the Battle of Armageddon, Revelation 19 tells us that Satan is cast alive into the Lake of Fire. Ezekiel 39 shows you that it is here where Jesus kindles that fire that the Antichrist gets thrown into.

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” Revelation 19:20 (KJV)

Armageddon Prophecy Clue#3: “And 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:…And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.” Ezekiel 39:9,12 (KJV)

Revelation 20 says that after the Battle of Gog and Magog, we have the Great White Throne Judgment and then eternity. But Revelation 19 says that after the Battle of Armageddon, Jesus prepares the world for a 1,000 reign of peace. The people in Ezekiel 39 do not appear to be preparing for eternity at all, they are doing cleanup to cleanse the earth for the Messiah. More than that, Ezekiel 39 ends with the full and final regathering of the Jewish people to Israel, and not the Great White Throne Judgment. This regathering of the Jews after Armageddon sets up the final battle of Gog and Magog 1,000 years later.

“Then 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.” Ezekiel 39:28 (KJV)

For these 3 main reasons, we declare Ezekiel 39, in total harmony with Revelation 19, to be the Battle of Armageddon that takes place at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Ezekiel 38: The Battle of Gog and Magog after the 1,000 Year Reign Of Jesus Christ

Ezekiel 38 is quite different from chapter 39, namely because it shows that Israelis dwelling in peace and safety.

Battle of Gog and Magog Main Prophecy Clues: “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…And thou 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,” Ezekiel 38:8,11 (KJV)

This one, huge prophecy clue shows us that Israel, after having been regathered, is dwelling in peace and safety in their own land. This is exactly how what happens after the Battle of Armageddon, Israel is regathered and experience 1,000 years of peace under King Jesus. Israel has no peace right now in 2015, will experience a shaky false peace under Antichrist, and will finally have actual peace during the 1,000 reign of Christ in Jerusalem. So when Satan is released from the Lake of Fire he was placed in in Revelation 19, he comes out and makes war with God’s people in Israel which is what Revelation 20 declares.

“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall 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. And 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.” Revelation 20:7-9 (KJV)

When Ezekiel says “After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword” that is a direct reference to the “many days and years” of the 1,000 Reign of Christ. One way we know that for sure is he says that Israel is “brought back from the sword”, meaning that their endless wars and fighting have finally ceased. Israel has no peace at all during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, it’s nothing but tribulation right up to the very moment Jesus returns. But this war in Ezekiel 38 shows the forces of Antichrist attacking a very peaceful and prosperous Israel with no walls and no fortifications. If Jesus is ruling from Jerusalem, there is zero need of defensive walls.

Also, the battle of Ezekiel 38, Gog and Magog, shows a completely regathered Israel, and Israel is not completely regathered until the 1,000 Year Reign of Christ. For these reasons we declare Ezekiel 38 to be the Battle of Gog and Magog shown in Revelation 20 that happens after Satan is loosed after the 1,000 Year Reign. Which is a completely and obviously separate battle from Revelation 19 that occurs before the 1,000 Year Reign.

This is by no means an exhaustive study of the two wars of Ezekiel, we have only skimmed the surface. We hope this study will be a blessing to you.

Why The King James Bible Uses ‘Atonement’ In Romans 5:11 And All The Modern Versions Change It To ‘Reconciliation’ Will Dramatically Increase Your Faith

Published

on

jesus-christ-romans-5-11-king-james-bible-our-atonement-for-sin-calvary
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

In the Old Testament, sinners made the atonement to God for their sins, but in the New Testament, it is God that makes the atonement for sinners in Romans 5:11.

This is just a quick little Bible study that came to me today via an email question from NTEB’er Jill, who had had a lively discussion with her dad about the wording used by the King James in Romans 5:11. The crux of the conversation centered around why the King James is the only one to use the word ‘atonement’ when all the other version, no exceptions, used the word ‘reconciliation’. In fact, this is the one and only place in the entire New Testament that uses the word ‘atonement’. Certainly, the King James translators must have gotten it wrong if all 250+ other versions disagree. As it turns out yet again, the King James is right, and all the others are predictably wrong. Let’s see why this is.

“And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.” Romans 5:11 (KJB)

The word atonement appears 81 times in the Bible, 80 times in the Old Testament and 1 time in the New Testament. Here’s the breakdown. All 80 places in the Old Testament where ‘atonement’ is mentioned, an atonement is being made, it is being offered. In Romans 5:11, the atonement is being RECEIVED. Huge difference. In the Old Testament, the guilty party is atoning to the offended party, it’s an offering given by sinners to God. In Romans the atonement has been made for us, not by us, the innocent paying a debt He didn’t owe, to us the guilty who have a debt we cannot pay. It’s the exact opposite. What was the atonement in Romans 5:11? It was Jesus Christ Himself! And you want to change that to ‘reconciliation’? Not on my watch, mister.

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 (KJB)

So Romans 5:11 is MUCH more than a mere reconciliation, we can reconcile lost sinners to Jesus Christ, and in fact we are commanded to. But when we reconcile lost sinners to God by Jesus Christ, we are only able to do that because God has already provided the atonement.

“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” 2 Corinthians 5:18 (KJB)

In the Old Testament, atonement was what the people had to do, in the New Testament, ‘do’ has become ‘done’ and now we are told to receive something, not offer something. Now, I wonder who would want you to not know that? Hmm🤔

What do you lose when you have a modern version that steals your ‘atonement’ and gives you ‘reconciliation’ instead? Why, only one of the greatest doctrines anywhere in the whole Bible, that’s all. The doctrine of God not only making an atonement for sins He did not commit, but God becoming the atonement for those sins He did not commit.

  • OLD TESTAMENT: “Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.” Leviticus 23:27 (KJB)
  • NEW TESTAMENT: “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1 John 4:10 (KJB)

We are reconciled to God through Jesus Christ by the atonement that was made on the cross at Calvary. God’s blood shed to make a payment, an atonement, for the sin of the whole world. If you take out ‘atonement’ from Romans 5:11, you have done despite to the blood!

“Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” Hebrews 10:29 (KJB)

The Incredible Events Of The Last Supper In The Upper Room Illustrates Perfectly The Revealing Of The Man Of Sin At The Pretribulation Rapture Of The Church

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

At the exact moment Judas goes from being the man of sin to the son of perdition, the scripture sayeth that he immediately goes ‘down and out into darkness’, while the disciples are ‘up in the air’ with Jesus

Many people are puzzled, baffled and otherwise flummoxed when attempting to unravel the end times timeline for the Church given to us prophetically by our apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 in your King James Bible. Over the years, all sorts of crazy interpretations like the falling away is actually the Rapture, the Day of Christ and the Day of the Lord is talking about the same events, and every other type of Laodicean insanity have been put forth to try and make sense of these verses. Of course, you could always just compare scripture with scripture and rightly divide what you read, but that’s too much work, who wants to do that? We do!

“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, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 (KJB)

Ok, Bible believers, let’s do this by the numbers. Verse 1 is showing you our ‘gathering together unto him‘, when you compare this to 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 you see clearly this is a reference to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. This also defines the term the ‘day of Christ‘ that we see in verse 2 as also being a reference to the Rapture of the Church. Still with me? So far we haven’t done much interpretation, all we have done is compare scripture with scripture. Verse 3, however, is where most Christians throw up their hands and say “we’re not looking for Antichrist!!” and go back to watching cat videos on YouTube. Just what is Paul talking about when he says the ‘man of sin’ will be revealed just prior to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church? To answer this perplexing (to some) question, the gospel of John has the answer. (Much of John is addressed to the Church Age, see for yourself here.)

He then lying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it? Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.” John 13:26,27,30 (KJB)

If you haven’t read our article entitled ‘Does The King James Bible Reveal The Identity Of The Coming End Times Antichrist?’ you might want to take a moment and go read it before continuing with this article. Ok ready? Let’s proceed.

In John 13, always keep an eye out for the number 13 as it is associated with Antichrist almost as much as 666, we see the last supper in the upper room with Jesus, His disciples, and of course, Judas the betrayer. Up to this point in the three and one half year ministry of Jesus, Judas has distinguished himself as the devil that he always was. In fact, you could quite accurately say that Judas was the ‘man of sin’ from the very beginning. One such ‘highlight’ of this is found in the story of Mary of Bethany in John 12:1-8 where we see Judas, the scripture calls him a lying thief, mocking Mary’s incredible sacrifice of her alabaster box. Judas not only mocks it, he is showing unfiltered contempt for the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus as the passage clearly shows you. Judas was always the ‘man of sin’, he was never a good guy, and in the upper room he gets an dubious ‘promotion’ to becoming the Son of Perdition. Ever ask yourself why Jesus would purposely chose Judas as a disciple? One main reason would have to be so there was a type of the tares mixed in with the wheat, the ‘wolf lying down with the lamb’ from Isaiah 11:6. Get it? Good, now back to the events in the upper room as a type of the Rapture of the Church.

The disciples are all asking Jesus who the betrayer is, and Jesus tells them plainly to watch and see who dips the sop in the dish, because that’s the guy. At the moment Judas takes his sop from the dish (SOP is son of perdition, just coincidentally), Satan enters into him and he becomes the Son of Perdition, a type of Antichrist. But watch what happens next. At the exact moment Judas goes from being the man of sin to the son of perdition, the scripture sayeth that he immediately goes ‘down and out into darkness’. Darkness being a type of the time of Jacob’s trouble and the great tribulation. But where are the disciples? They are up in the air with Jesus Christ in the upper room! (if you’re looking for a sign, this is it!)

This is what Paul is talking about in 2 Thessalonians, when the man of sin is revealed, however that happens, the Church will be safely taken UP in the air to be with Jesus Christ. John shows us this in type, Paul shows us this in prophecy, and one day very soon we will live out those verses when our beautiful Saviour, Jesus of Nazareth, catches us up and away to be with Him forever. So where is the exact moment of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church? It’s contained in the comma between ‘be revealed‘ and ‘the son of perdition‘ in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. There it is, you’re welcome!

Jesus Paid For The Sins Of The Whole World On The Cross At Calvary With The Blood Of God, But John MacArthur Denies These Bedrock Bible Truths

Published

on

jesus-at-calvary-cross-made-payment-for-sin-with-blood-of-god-john-macarthur-heretic-says-will-not-save-you
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

I cannot imagine any Bible teacher or preacher of the word of God that did not understand that the payment for sin on the cross was the shed blood of Jesus Christ, but end times heretic John MacArthur is one such person.

John MacArthur is a lot of things, but one thing he is not is a Bible believer. Why do I say that? Because John MacArthur denies the main scriptural tenant that clearly and plainly decrees that the payment for sin made on the cross was God’s own blood, shed to redeem sinners. As you will see in the videos below, MacArthur states repeatedly that the “blood of Jesus Christ does not save you”, and he go so far as to say that the blood Jesus shed was not God’s blood. That, my friends, is rank heresy.

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Acts 20:28 (KJB)

What follows below are my notes from our Sunday Service yesterday, just some quick thoughts I compiled on the blood of Jesus Christ to prepare for yesterday’s message. The evidence that rebukes John MacArthur’s heresy is overwhelming, and the only way you could miss it you’d have to be unsaved. This is no case of “let’s agree to disagree”, not by a long shot, this is rebuking heresy and false teaching that some might be saved. If you believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, the blood of God, cannot save your soul, then you are lost and headed for a fiery Hell. The only payment for your sin God will accept is His own shed blood.

Saved By The Blood Of The Crucified One

The first mention of blood in your King James Bible is the shed blood of an innocent man, who is a type of Jesus Christ, shed by a man who a type of Antichrist. This law of first mention sets the standard for blood all through the scriptures.

“And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.” Genesis 4:10 (KJB)

In the New Testament, the blood as it relates to the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, shows you that it is a payment to 1). Build His church, and 2). Make a payment for sin for the whole world.

“Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” Luke 22:20 (KJB)

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18 (KJB)

The Bible shows us that the death of Jesus on the cross is the vehicle by which the blood was applied as payment, His death itself is not the payment. This is a huge distinction, one that is lost to most Greek and Hebrew scholars of our day. If Jesus had only died in our place on the cross, and not made the payment, then we would remain in our sins with no way to receive salvation. The blood that was shed is eternal, it is God’s blood, and only God’s blood can keep you eternally safe, saved and secure.

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Acts 20:28 (KJB)

 Jesus on the cross took the punishment we rightly deserve upon Himself, and this is the first Bible doctrine ever mentioned in the Church Age.

“And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.” Acts 8:30-34 (KJB)

Of course, this is referring to Isaiah 53

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 (KJB)


The New Versions Remove The Blood!

  • KJB: “In whom we have redemption through his bloodeven the forgiveness of sins:” Colossians 1:14 (KJB)
  • ESV: “in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:14 (ESV)

Now, let’s take a look in the writings of Paul to see how important the blood Jesus shed on the cross truly is. It’s so simple, you have to work to miss it.

“Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:25,26 (KJB)

“Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” Romans 5:9 (KJB)

“After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.” 1 Corinthians 11:25 (KJB)

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;” Ephesians 1:7 (KJB)

“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” Colossians 1:20 (KJB)

All the way into Revelation, we see the blood is what has paid our sin debt.

“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5,6 (KJB)

The last mention of blood in the Bible brings you full circle. As the first mention of blood was that of an innocent men having it shed at the hands of the wicked, so the last mention of is of a Righteous Man trampling His enemies and shedding their blood.

“For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.” Revelation 19:2 (KJB)

“And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Revelation 19:13 (KJB)

Remember what the gospel is:

“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:3,4 (KJB)

It is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was a sacrificial death to fulfill all the Law of Moses, but it was a death in order to make and apply a payment for sin, the only payment God would or could accept – His own blood, shed by Himself.

Watch Heretic John MacArthur Deny The Shed Blood Of Jesus Christ

This man is to be avoided at all costs, for every one right thing he says, he utters three heresies.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. The Lord has given us an open door with a tremendous ‘course’ for us to fulfill that will create an excellent experience at the Judgement Seat of Christ. Please pray for our efforts, and if the Lord leads you to donate, be as generous as possible. The war is REAL, the battle HOT and the time is SHORTTO THE FIGHT!!!
