Let's keep comments for this page related to Israel in the end times and the conference. Thank you!

Rodney said...

The current crisis in Israel and the region will soon erupt culminating in the fulfillment of Isaiah 17, Psalm 83, and Ezekiel 38/39 which are one! I believe by the projected date of this conference, these will have been fulfilled!

friend said...

I am hoping LambandLion will give us the highlights of the conference. I'd really like to know what all these minds think and what has been revealed to them by the Holy Spirit. God Bless!

Billy said...


How can they be one when Ezekiel 38:10-11 says:

“‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On that day thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme. You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars."

Exactly when will Israel be "unwalled" and "peaceful" and an "unsuspecting people"?

Because of these verses I can not see how these can all be one event.

Please explain. Thanks.

Nathan Jones said...

We hope to meet you Susie and all the rest of the gang here as well. Sue just has a little farther to travel! ;)

Yes, indeed, the DVD album will be available soon afterwards available on and we always turn the presentations into episodes of "Christ in Prophecy." So, even if you can't make it, we'll make it avaiable through other media at a later point.

Susie said...

O! Thanks! I am VERY much looking forward to it! :) i just get the feeling the Holy Spirit will be at work doing some mighty things thru all of u to gain precious souls for the Kingdom.
i will be praying while the conference is in session!

Rodney said...

Billy, there is no indication that Israel will not be expecting an attack as it is certain that the Western powers and their Sunni Arab allies are alerted to the Gog/Magog invasion force assembling to attack Israel (Ezekiel 38:13). The "unwalled villages" refer to the present Jewish Settlements that are viewed by the international community as an obstacle to peace. The Prophet Ezekiel clarifies this with identifying cities within the same prophecy (Ezekiel 39:9), this is a clear distinction here.

Where does the primary force assemble? We know they are brought by the hand of the Lord from the north and therefore assemble at the northern borders of Israel (Syria and Lebanon)! The prophecy indicates that they will find their end in an open field (Ezekiel 39:5), I believe this to be the ancient fertile Plain of Bashan located in Southern Syria adjacent to the Israeli held Golan Heights. This is why I believe Isaiah 17 will be fulfilled in the context of the Gog/Magog battle as Damascus is reduced to a ruinous heap, a result of the earthquake recorded in Ezekiel 38:19,20 which also violently shakes the Land of Israel.

Many scholars today deny that the recorded participants listed by Asaph in Psalm 83 are found in the context of the Gog/Magog invasion, therefore they conclude these are seperate conflicts, yet I will show however that these are indeed included. "And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains (borders of Israel), saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother"-Ezekiel 38:21. It is clear that the Prophet Ezekiel identifies that all those nations presently bordering Israel will slay each other as the present conflict between Sunni and Shia Islam finds an end on the borders of Israel.

"O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with they tempest, and make them afraid with they storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD"-Psalm 83:13-15.

"And 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. Thus 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 the LORD"-Ezekiel 38:22,23.

"And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us"-Isaiah 17:14

"So 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 Lord GOD"-Ezekiel 39:10.

Isaiah 17, Psalm 83, and Ezekiel 38/39 are one, and will soon be fulfilled, for the Lord is determined to deal with all the enemies of Israel simultaneously!

Susie said...

I thought that isreal would be unwalled... peaceful.... after the 7 yr treaty is signed. Right now they r quite the opposite and ready to fight today!

Rodney said...

The "unwalled villages" distinctly identify with Jewish Settlements in particular those of the Galilee!The Prophet Daniel also makes clear that war and desolations are determined until the end! There will be no peace for Israel without the Prince of Peace! The time of the Tribulation is also known as Jacob's Trouble therefore with all honesty, I do not agree with the hypothesis of most scholars in a secured peace for Israel guaranteed by the AntiChrist.

If Jerusalem is to be a cup of trembling and a burdensome stone to all nations, then how is it anyone can see a time of peace under those conditions? I believe frankly, that the covenant with many that the AntiChrist initiates, is a nuclear disarmament treaty and universal economic plan, nothing more! If the AntiChrist was seeking to appear as a Messianic figure to Israel then why would he enter Jerusalem by force of arms, stop the daily sacrifice and defile the sanctuary of the Temple? Obviously confusion reigns in some eschatological circles regarding these events.

Anthony said...

I always wondered the senario that needs to occur to get some of nations in the outer ring of nations such as Libya, Sudan/Ethiopia, and even from the former Russian republics physically situated in the northern mountains of Israel as mentioned in Ezekiel 38/39. It would be helpful if someone has done any research on the military strategies of these Muslim nations that would get them positioned for this fulfillment. I have never heard anyone discussed this and would think someone with a military or political background would have provided their opinions by now.

Barry said...

Don't forget John 5:43. I believe the peace and saftey is brought on by the Antichrist during the first three and a half years of the Tribulation Period. I believe that he will come on to the scene and Israel will fall for him like America did Obahma. It will be like handing a cookie to a child and when the child reaches out he gets smacked. We all know that this peace and saftey is false, because then sudden destruction.During the last half of the Tribulation Period known as Jacobs Trouble two thirds of the Jews will be killed while the remaining flee to Petra Jordan. I'm one of those who believes that at the end of the Tribulation will Eze.38 and 39 will be fought. There are some posts that Mitch posted and he has hit the nail on the head. In Christ, Barry

Barry said...

Anthony, Read Revelations 16:12-14.

Nathan Jones said...

Speaking of the hook that pulls Gog down to Israel for plunder, this just in - Israel strikes oil off Tel Aviv coast.

In Ezekiel's time all the major cities had protective walls. When he was given the Lord's description of the Israel of the future with no walls or gates (like greater Jerusalem today) it must be concluded that a people living in "unwalled villages" must mean they're living in "peace" and would be "unsuspecting." If that's the case, then Israel already meets that precondition for the Gog-Magog Battle.

Barry said...

The news is saying that Israel is going to strike first. If Israel strikes first then doesn't that take Ezekiels battle out of the picture? I quote " U S Secretary of Defense Panetta says he believes Israel could act against Iran(a key player in the Gog and Magog war) as early as April. It goes on to say that various news agencies speculate that Iran could be at war with Europe, Israel, the U S or some combination this Spring." unquote. Ezekial says that Israel is the one being attacked not Israel attacking. I believe the Rapture is next eleminating the U S thus leaving Israel with no friends (The Church)setting the stage for the Antichrist to come on the scene to protect Israel with this false confirmation of the Covenant.Why would Christ make Himself known to Israel in the beginning and then have them looking to the Antichrist for protection.

Billy said...

I couldn't disagree more that Israel is currently living in peace or unsespecting of attack.

Only an ostrich with it's head in the sand could believe that.

Israel is currently preparing for a potential war with Iran...hardly a state of peace.

Israel is being bombared with rockets right now...hardly a state of peace.

And to say they are unsuspecting? Are you kidding? They are on complete guard against potential threats.

The reality of the situation is more of a nation on the brink of war, under attack, and on guard for more trouble.

How in the heck am I wrong???!!!

Susie said...

Well sue, if ur so inclined... i would love to gain ur insight in this conversation. I agree with billy about isreal not being in a time of peace in any way at all.

Nathan.. interesting article ... i wonder whats gonna happen now. Iran.. im sure.. is hittin the roof over their discovery of oil.

Nathan Jones said...

Billy, I'm beginning to suspect we talk on totally different wavelengths. ;)

Phillip Goodman made this argument and I think it has some merit. From a 7th Century BC prophet used to seeing walls and gates surrounding every city and then learning that modern day Israel has no such defenses, plus with their humanist views obscuring their reaction to very serious threats, the argument could be made that Israel is in the prerequisite state ready for Ezekiel 38-39 to occur. This from our point of view certaily isn't the case, but it's something to ponder.

Billy said...


I didn't buy into your last post. BUT it did get me to thinking more about the subject which brings to me another "take" which I CAN buy into:

It says "On that day thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme. You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages...etc."

Aha! Those will be the thoughts of those that invade Israel.

It doesn't say this version which I am ALTERING to make my point: "On that day you will devise an evil scheme. You will invade a land of unwalled villages; attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars."

So what is being described is THEIR IMPRESSION of the condition of Israel prior to the invasion, NOT the REALITY of the situation.

How's that?

p.s. Be patient with me. I have to think things through a lot sometimes. Therefore, you should be HAPPY that you aren't on the same wavelength as me :)

p.s.s. That doesn't apply to all my posts, however. Occasionally I think I have a handle on a subject.

p.s.s.s. God bless! Hope to see you up in the air soon!

Billy said...

Susie said "I agree with billy about isreal not being in a time of peace in any way at all."

I appreciate that BUT definitely take it ALL in (I know that IS what you do) because everyone's (especially those with more knowledge than I) views help us in our desire to seek the truth.

friend said...

'unwalled' can also denote 'without faith' which I determine could mean not having faith in Jesus

just a thought, not saying that is it

Billy said...

Okay, after going back and reading ALL of 38-39 again...and come across "Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: In that day, when my people Israel are living in safety, will you not take notice of it?"

So, Israel WILL be in safety (which I do not think is the case now).

This is all making the case for Psalm 83 and Damascus nuke first knocking out the Arab threat. Then an aura of safety around Israel's borders would be possible.

That would then be followed up by Gog/Magog attacking an Israel in safety.

So, I guess I'm finally buying into the Israelistine concept (to a point). I see a victorious Israel but not with the end result be an Israeli world superpower, rather the end result being Israel as the dominant middle east nation free from the threat of the the Arabs.

Enough for me for now. My brain is aching.

Rodney said...

Billy, I believe this passage of scripture in which the Lord God addresses Gog indicates either false confidence or false security, the term "safely" provided within the context as the hebrew word betach has dual meaning! Israel today takes great pride in their military might yet with the overwhelming force being prepared by the hand of God to be brought against his people they will quickly realize that even this is not enough! Without the direct and divine intervention of the Lord God concerning Israel the Jewish State would be no more, yet the Lord God is faithful!

Rodney said...

Anthony, the current situation now in the region has made it possible for Libya, Egypt, Sudan, and many others to unite under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood! This was accomplished by the West in their alliance with dominant Sunni powers and their terrorist militias such as Al Qaeda!

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) which includes China and Russia along with Iran and Pakistan in observer status also happens to include many of the former Soviet Republics within this organization. The S.C.O. is dominated by China and Russia and was formed as an economic trade bloc much like the E.U., yet now has also become militarized in strategic partnerships! Take a look at the membership within the ranks of the S.C.O., I believe you will find what you are looking for there!

The situation now in the region of the Middle East rivals that of those included within the Gog/Magog Prophecy! Russia is currently providing strategic guarantee's for Iran as well as Syria, being a guard unto them as the prophecy reveals! The West which includes the United States and European partners under N.A.T.O. as well as their Sunni allies (Turkey and Saudi Arabia) are on the other side of the fence.

Though the Lord God identifies that he will put hooks in the jaws of those that will assemble on the borders of Israel, there is no indication that they are all united on the same side at the time of their gathering! I believe the current clash between the Western backed Sunni and the Russian/Iranian backed Shia forces will have their last battle on the mountains of Israel within the confines of the Gog/Magog battle of Ezekiel 38/39!

Billy said...


I agree with your comment. Thanks.

Rodney said...

Billy, your welcome! Iran is presently testing the defense capabilities of the Israeli Defense Forces. Recently the Gaza operation with rockets lauched by Jihad Islami into several southern cities of Israel was believed to be directed and coordinated by Iran. I believe very soon Iran will test the northern border of Israel sending Hezbollah rocket forces into action from Lebanon! This is just the beginning it will escalate more with each passing day!

Susie said...

This morning according to website...... there were 3 missles fired at beersheva. One was intercepted but two hit. No casualties reported so far and thank God the scbools were closed and people were in shelters.

Susie said...

I was wondering if any of u think that the discovery of oil and natural gas could be "the hook in the jaw" for the gog/magaog war????

Barry said...

Rodney,Actually betach occurs 42 times in 41 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV and has 13 meanings. A words meaning is determined by the context. I believe by rightly dividing the word and the context of Ezekial that the word safely means without danger and fear. If Israel is without danger and fear then why are they ready to strike. I believe right now they fell danger and fear or they wouldn't want to take out Irans nuclear capabilities. Putting Gog and Magog at the beginning of the Tribulation or even at the middle makes no sense. How can God have mercy upon the whole house of Israel and be jealous for His holy name and then allow two thirds of them to be killed in the great Tribulation. Thats far from mercy. In Christ, Barry

I meant "feel" above.
