Today you should read: Ezekiel 38
Today’s passage is one of the most confusing passages in the prophecy of Ezekiel. Some scholars believe that it has already happened… some believe it is yet to come in the end times. But regardless, we see here that God fights for His people, showing His holiness and greatness.
All throughout the Scriptures we see God fight for His people. We see this in Exodus when He set them free from Egypt. Also, we see this in Joshua when God defeated Jericho.
Here is no different. Just like God hardened Pharaoh’s heart, God is going to bring out Gog (v. 16)… for one purpose – to vindicate His holiness. To show the world who is really God (v.16).
God Himself will bring victory over Gog. There will be none other to look at other than Him. Look at what God says… “So I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.”
God, in the end, will always have the final say. He is God and there is none other. One day every knee will bow, every tongue will confess who God is (Philippians 2:10-11). We have to make sure we are living for the right kingdom.
Would your last 7 days reflect that God really is God? What kingdom are you living for?
