When we speak of our trust in the prophecy of the Bible, we have as evidence from history that shows a literal and detailed fulfilment.
When speaking of the walls of Tyre, we were told,
And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock. (Ezekiel 26:4)
This fate may be verified.
Then too for over 100 years despite two world wars and the dramatic creation of the ‘Iron Curtain’ wall we maintained that Europe must unite. It is curious that Europe uniting was most unlikely from 1961 as a physical barrier was built in Berlin, which was improved and further fortified until 1980. Even the day before the dramatic fall of the wall, no-one could have predicted the race to European unity that has occurred since.
This is a one and half minute video about another wall. Like the Berlin wall this wall also is a flashpoint for world war.
After years of lectures on Ezekiel 38, speaking of Israel at the time of the latter days before Messiah’s coming dwelling without walls, bars and gates, instead of peace as we expected, and which might have been achieved at a few points, we see what seems the opposite. Until we think about it. Most of the world sees only physical reality, we see with the eye of faith. How could Ezekiel have so confidently written of walls, bars and gates being associated specifically with Israel’s mountains? It was only after 1994 that we could see what he was talking about, and why Gog was so amazed about them being removed that he comments on it as a reason for his actions!
