“Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous BIRDS OF EVERY SORT (capitals mine), and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.”
In one of my past posts, Jesus DID say we would have “…wars and rumors of wars”, I discussed three very different and separate wars that will be fought in Israel in the Last Days; prophesied coming wars that as of this writing have not yet occurred. These are critical to the fulfillment of all Biblical prophecy because they 1.) re-establish the original boundaries of the Land of Israel given to the Jews as part of the Abrahamic Covenant; 2.) sets up a false “peace treaty” between the Jews and their enemies by the anti-christ which will allow the Jews to finally rebuild their third Holy Temple in Jerusalem; and, 3.) brings about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ at Armageddon to destroy the global government and religion of the anti-christ and to begin His Millennium rule on earth. As I mentioned in that post, there are many dissimilarities in these different wars which can only, I believe, point to three very separate prophesied events.
In the “middle” war, the War of Gog and Magog spoken of in Ezekiel 38 & 39, countries like Russia, Iran, Turkey, Sudan, Libya (all specifically named in the Bible!) will invade Israel and be totally defeated with 5 of every 6 of the invaders dying on the mountains of Israel:
“Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog (leader of this invasion), and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel.”
With all the things going on in the Middle East today, I doubt anyone would be truly surprised if this war were to begin today! Russia, Turkey and Iran have all signed a military alliance for the FIRST TIME IN HISTORY. Putin of Russia wants to bring back his vision of an enlarged czarist Russia and has been re-elected for 6 more years. Iran’s terrorist proxies Hezbollah and Hamas have stockpiled over 100,000 rockets on the borders of Israel capable of hitting anywhere in Israel. Turkey has called on 57 Islamic countries to band together to finally destroy the Nation of Israel. Would you REALLY be surprised if this were to happen today?
However, my intent today is to share with you something I read which really, really surprised me! The opening Scripture of this post relates to God sending birds of the air to devour the remains of those invaders He killed on the mountains of Israel during the War of Gog and Magog. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of the invaders will die in their vain attempt to invade Israel and destroy the Jews. Their bodies will be strewn “…upon the mountains of Israel.” What I recently read (and I strongly believe is a message from God to tell others of this coming miracle) is God will send large flocks of birds to help the Jews clean up the human carnage from the war.
Did you know one of the largest bi-annual migrations of birds IN THE ENTIRE WORLD occurs over the northern land of Israel? Amazing! It is estimated 550 different species of birds, over 500 MILLION a year leave Africa and the Middle East on their way to Europe and Eastern Asia OVER ISRAEL! When the season changes they then fly back to their natural homes. The map route below shows their travels.
Amazingly, with God’s Infinite Wisdom, these birds on their migration also rest in NORTHERN ISRAEL in what is called the Hula Valley. They don’t rest in Southern or Eastern Israel. They rest in northern Israel where the War of Gog and Magog will take place! I strongly believe this is not only a statement from God regarding this specific War and its outcome but a stand alone prophecy those on earth will visibly witness as told to us in the Bible. These birds will devour the flesh of those who died! Of course the birds will not be eating the bones so as the Israelis find body parts, they will bury them. This, as the Bible says, will take them 7 months to do:
“And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, and all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord God.”
This prophecy is yet another incredible example of something that will happen AND if you are present and remember His Words (not mine!), you will be able to relate it to the fact God DOES NOT want one of us to die and go to everlasting punishment. He gave us His Word, the Holy Bible, so we can better understand what is coming and when we do see it (IF the Rapture has not yet occurred) who can dismiss this prophecy from 2,600 years ago telling us that a select AND named group of 6 countries much larger than Israel will be defeated in one day with 5 of every 6 of the invaders dying on the land of Northern Israel? And, that it will take 7 months to bury the dead and 7 years to burn the implements of war? When this happens and you see hundreds of millions of birds eating the flesh of the dead in a very small area in Israel, will you remember this prophecy? I hope so because as I have said many times before, it is the pre-knowledge of what to expect from God in the Last Days that to me is SO comforting. It is as though a siren goes off telling you a tornado is approaching. If you go to a safe area, you know you will be safe. If the siren didn’t go off and warn you, or if you didn’t HEAR it, it would be very scary not knowing what was going to happen to you. That is why God gave us His Word in the Bible, sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins and this is why we should do as we are ALL instructed to do and that is to “…therefore, comfort one another with these words.”
Thank you for continuing to read and share these messages. May God Bless You!
