Background Information: Zechariah was a priest and prophet to the Jews during the rebuilding and reestablishing of Jerusalem after Babylonian exile. He was the son of a prophet, which means he belonged to Aaron’s family. The Lord assigned Zechariah to encourage His people to continue rebuilding the second temple (the first temple was burned down by Nebuzaradan, Captain of the Guard, who served under King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon). The theme of Chapters 12 through 14 deals with Israel in the latter years, signifying the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Kingdom on earth.

Background Information: The book of Revelation was written by Apostle John, who authored the Gospel of John, and John I, II, and III. He was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ and known as the disciple whom Jesus loved. During the time of the Apostles’ ministry, the early Christians were gravely persecuted by the Roman government. As the last surviving Apostle, John strove to abolish paganism and fortify the faith of the seven churches in Asia Minor (modern day Anatolia, Turkey): Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicean. Toward the end of his ministry, Roman Emperor Domitian (81AD – 96AD), successor of Nero, came to power. Domitian was the splitting image of Nero in his extreme, diabolical persecution of the Christians. In 95AD John was summoned to Rome and was found guilty of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Domitian viewed John as a rebel of Roman ordinance, and ordered him to be thrust into boiling water. Miraculously, John walked away unscathed because of the Lord’s protection. When Domitian saw that John had suffered not one burn, he ordered him to be exiled to a Greek island in the Aegean Sea, called the Isle of Patmos. To the Romans, the Isle of Patmos was a place of banishment for criminals; but for Christians this small island represents a banner of faith and hope, inasmuch as it is the place where the Apostle John received and wrote the Apocalypse, called The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Background Information: Ezekiel was a Jewish priest and prophet who was taken captive by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon during his second invasion of Jerusalem in 597 B.C. Daniel was taken into captivity during Nebuchadnezzar’s first invasion around 606 B.C. The Lord commissioned Ezekiel as the prophet to the Jews in exile. He began prophesying to them when he was 30 years old. In Chapters 38 and 39 the Lord tells Ezekiel to speak to Russia concerning the Jews and the Battle of Armageddon set aside for the end time, referred to as the latter years. These two chapters are distinctly different from Daniel and Revelations as the Lord is speaking directly to Russia, and further clarity is provided about earthly happenings going on in Israel once the Battle of Armageddon is over. The Lord also tells us why He will allow the bloodiest, deadliest war in the history of planet earth. Continue reading “Paraphrasing of Ezekiel 38 & 39”
