The Imminent Invasion of Israel


It is a matter of urgency that I share with you an important End-Time Prophecy in Ezekiel 38 and 39 about a massive Invasion of Israel that could be fulfilled imminently (at any time), even this year, since all the international conditions and political alignments required by the Prophecy are amazingly now in place.

We shall show that according to this Prophecy, God will soon bring a number of nations into Judgement by causing them to join together in a massive invasion of Israel. The nations are led by Russia and include many of the former Soviet republics Turkey, Sudan, Libya and Iran and many others, including Syria, Lebanon (Hezbollah), Gaza, possibly also Jordan (Edom, see Ezekiel 36:1-5).

This massive invasion of Israel will involve a large coalition of nations led by Russia, and will end in their total destruction by a Divine Intervention, one of the greatest acts of Divine Judgement in all history. These dramatic events will greatly change the international political and religious landscape, especially in relation to Israel. This Prophecy has never been fulfilled, and so it is still yet to happen. The time it occurs is repeatedly called: ‘the latter years’ and ‘the last days.’

When will this world-changing invasion take place? Some identify this invasion with the Battle of Armageddon, others as the invasion of Revelation 20 (after the Millennium); others place it at Mid-Tribulation. However, I will show it must either take place very near the start of the Tribulation, or more likely, in the time just before the Tribulation, in the very time in which we live! 

Ezekiel 38:8,12: “In the latter years, you (the invading armies) will come into the Land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many peoples on the mountains of ISRAEL, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely (securely).... against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the Midst of the Land (Earth).

Here we see Ezekiel is prophesying there will be an INVASION of Israel in the latter years (a phrase denoting the end times just before Messiah returns). It describes Israel as having been scattered to all the nations, where she had suffered greatly, but now in the Last Days of the Age, she will be regathered again to her Land, which, in her absence, had been laying desolate for a long time. After having returned to her Land, she becomes a strong and prosperous nation. It is in this setting that this great invasion takes place.

Now all of these conditions have been fulfilled in recent history with the Rebirth of the Nation of Israel in 1948, indicating that we are now in the Latter Years of the Church Age, and that the time for this invasion could be near, even imminent.
