Ezekiel Commentary: Chapters 38, 39
Paraphrasing of Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39
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. 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 the leader of Russia concerning Israel 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 Revelation as the Lord is speaking directly to the leader of 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.
