Ezekiel – The Prophecy Against Gog

JP: Our study this week will be from Ezekiel 38 & 39.

Gog of Magog

JP: Helpful article on “Gog of Magog” of Ezekiel 38–39 by Renald Showers.

Gog of Magog


Gog ’s location is “ the north parts ” ( 38:15 ; 39:2 ). The Hebrew word translated “ parts ” means “ extreme or uttermost parts. ” Since Ezekiel was a Hebrew prophet, he would refer to geographical locations from the vantage point of his homeland. Thus, his statement in 38:15 indicates that when Gog leads the six-nation attack against Israel, he will come from his location in the extreme or uttermost parts directly north of Israel. Russia is the nation situated in the extreme or uttermost parts directly north of Israel.

“Son of man, can these bones live?”

JP: Our study this week (2/14/2010) will be from Ezekiel 34-37.

Study notes and outline below:

Benjamin Netanyahu: Ezekiel 37 has been fulfilled

JP: Relevant to our study in Ezekiel



“[After the Holocaust,” the Jewish people rose from ashes and destruction, from a terrible pain that can never be healed. Armed with the Jewish spirit, the justice of man, and the vision of the prophets, we sprouted new branches and grew deep roots. Dry bones became covered with flesh, a spirit filled them, and they lived and stood on their own feet. As Ezekiel prophesized: ‘Then He said unto me: These bones are the whole House of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up, our hope is gone; we are doomed.’ Prophecy, therefore, and say to them: Thus said the Lord God: I am going to open your graves and lift you out of your graves, O My people, and bring you to the land of Israel.’ I stand here today on the ground where so many of my people perished — and I am not alone. The State of Israel and all the Jewish people stand with me. We bow our heads to honor your memory and lift our heads as we raise our flag-a flag of blue and white with a Star of David in its center. And everyone sees. And everyone hears. And everyone knows – that our hope is not lost.”

Ezekiel 33: The watchman and his message

But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand. (Ezekiel 33:6)
