The events spoken of in this chapter will be in the latter days. (Soon?) These enemies will come together to invade the land of Israel but the God of Father Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will defeat them.
Eze 38:1-10 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, let your face be turned against Gog, of the land of Magog, the ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and be a prophet against him, And say, This is what the Lord has said: See, I am against you, O Gog, ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal: And turning you round, I will … make you come out with all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them in full war-dress, a great force with breastplate and body-cover, all of them armed with swords: Persia, Cush, and Put with them; all of them with body-cover and metal head-dress: Gomer and all her forces; the people of Togarmah in the inmost parts of the north, with all his forces: a great number of peoples with you.
Be ready, make yourself ready, you and all the forces who are with you, and be ready for my orders. After a long time you will get your orders: in the last years you will come into the land which has been given back from the sword, which has been got together out of a great number of peoples, on the mountains of Israel which have ever been a waste: but it has been taken out from the peoples and they will be living, all of them, without fear of danger. And you will go up, you will come like a storm, you will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your forces, and a great number of peoples with you. This is what the Lord has said: In that day it will come about that things will come into your mind, and you will have thoughts of an evil design: To take their property by force and go off with their goods; turning your hand against the waste places which now are peopled, and against the people who have been got together out of the nations, who have got cattle and goods for themselves, who are living in the middle of the earth.
Sure, the ancient names tend to be somewhat confusing to our ears today but with a bit of study we can see North Africa and Turkey and Russia in their all plotting to invade Israel. It is obviously going to be an even more impressive coalition than the one that engaged Israel in the Six Day War. Apparently Allah and his forces have forgotten how badly they lost in that war. To human eyes this coalition is going to be able to come into Israel and kill every man, woman, and child in less than a day but the Muslim god is going to lose again; he should have been satisfied with having Mecca and all the land that he already had with all of its oil.
Everyone, open your eyes and see that Israel is dwelling “safely” in that land because they are under the protection of the God of Father Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is not because they deserve it but because God has promised to do this because of His own holy name. Endeavors against them therefore will end in failure. The 38th chapter of Ezekiel goes on to tell that the coalition that comes against Israel will be destroyed and there is nothing that the god of Mohammad can do to prevent it. Father God, God of Father Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the one true God who sees, hears, and speaks, glorify Thy name.
