So James is asking is dog of Ezekiel 38 to 39 the same as Antichrist? I have asked this question for years. The answer is no. Dog of Ezekiel 38 to 39 is is destroyed and buried in a grave in Hammock for seven months. They burn the weapons for seven years, alluding to the seven year tribulation. But in Revelation 29 these Saints are destroyed by God’s hand, by fire. Also Antichrist is never buried. He has thrown in a Lake of fire with the false Prophet on the 6th bowl during Armageddon at the very end. God bless and thank you for your time. So going back to the question here, is God of Ezekiel 38 to 39 the same as Antichrist? That’s the question.

Speaker 2

Yeah, and I agree James, with the conclusion that the answer is no. To just jump straight to it though the way I get there is a little bit different. So regarding Zico 38 to 39, this could be confusing versus in part because I believe a lot of Ezekiel were literal prophecies that were supposed to be fulfilled as to the Israeli people, but they were conditional prophecies and because Israel went astray the literal application of those prophecies never came to pass. A good example is the temple that was prophesied in Ezekiel that has not been built and even the Jews themselves say because they went astray God didn’t let them build it. But Revelation 20 starting at verse four, give us some background and actually gets into about GOG versus Magog. And in a sense I believe what Revelations telling us. There’s a new spiritual application of the God Magog prophesies in Ezekiel and it applies differently now to God’s people at the end of time. In fact, I say the way past the end of time. The context of Revelation 20 Thrones are set and those were beheaded. We’re seeing these people and they’re reigning with Christ for 1000 years.

Speaker 2

So God’s people raised up, they’re living with God for 1000 years. This is the Millennium. During the same Millennium. In verse five it says, but the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. So the debt are gone, they’re not doing anything. And then they’re raised up in verse six. If you jump to verse seven now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive all the nations. And it says from the four corners of the Earth, this is GOG and Magog. The Bible is telling us GOG and Magog are all the people of the Earth, all the wicked, whoever lived, who are not in God’s Holy Kingdom, who are not saved. All these people then are gods and Maggot. And what happens as a rally by Satan? It says they went up on the breath of the Earth and surrounded the camp of the Saints and the beloved city and fire came down from heaven and then devoured them. They then get destroyed by God. That’s God versus magic in the new application given to us in revelation.

Speaker 2

So what’s this triple Asian that you talk about? I recommend you go and study Daniel nine. Starting at verse 24 to 27, it talks about the 70 week prophecy. And as part of the 70 week prophecy, it talks about this one week that’s separated from the wrist. And a lot of people draw a conclusion and say, this is how about this tribulation. But no, this is a special week because this is the week talking about the work of the Messiah. Again, we’re a little short on time. But talking about this week, it says in the midst of the week, he talked about the Messiah shall cause the sacrifice and ablation to cease. And for the overspreading of the abominations, he shall make it desolate even until the consummation and that determines shall be poured upon the desolate. So Christ, in the middle of this seven week period, three and a half years into his Ministry, he dies. And his death brought an end to the need of the sanctuary service we were talking about earlier, right? The Sabbath and the holidays and the foods and all these things were done away with because Christ put an end to it.

Speaker 2

It got fulfilled. And again, what is the Messiah? The Messiah means the anointed one. When did Christ get anointed at his baptism. That marks the beginning of the coming of the Messiah. In a sense, you can calculate this period of time, these 70 weeks because it says in Daniel, it talks about a decree in verse 25. No, you therefore understand that from the going forth of the command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Messiah Prince shall be seven weeks and three score and two weeks, you take up that period of time, calculate each of those weeks, turn them into a number of days and count each day as a year. And I’ll give you the starting point of this. It’s in Esra one versus two to four. That’s where the decree to go forth and rebuild Jerusalem is and that starting year is 587 BC. And if you add that period of time, those seven weeks minus the one week, you end up exactly when Jesus was baptized. It’s amazing. You can mathematically prove a prophecy predating Jesus by three or 400 years. A prophecy found in the dead sea Scrolls and is predicting to the day Jesus’s baptism.

Speaker 2

This is how you can prove to atheist the Bible is real. It’s incredible. But if you do so, the disservice by these theories that really aren’t true. Yeah, anacrist, you’re right. Is destroyed at the time of the six seal. Or sorry, the six vial, as you point out, it’s a totally different thing we don’t have time to get into. But Anna cry Scott first mega. Two different things. Great.
