The Great Supper of God
The spiritual purpose of “the great army” of Israel (Ezek 37:10) is to cleanse the land in Ezekiel 39, which is figuratively the kingdom of heaven. In Ezekiel 39:17-20, we see the great supper of God, described in Revelation 19:17-18, the cleansing of the kingdom of heaven.
The accounts of Ezekiel 38 and 39 are in reverse order to Revelation 19 and 20. In Revelation 19:17, we read about the Great Supper of God. Then Satan is released again to deceive the nations. And in Revelation 20:8, we read about great battle of Armageddon described in Ezekiel 38.
Gog who is buried in Ezekiel 39:11 represents “the King of the North” the beast, in Revelation 19:20-21, and Daniel 11:36-39. Gog, in Ezekiel 38, represent the King of the North, who attacks Israel in the great battle of Armageddon, in Revelation 20, and Daniel 11:40-45.
I am against you Gog, Prince of Rosh, Meschech and Tubal – this is the spiritual battle, that precedes the actual physical battle described in Chapter 38. Tiras and Javan, the sons of Japheth, who are excluded in Ezekiel 39:1, could theoretically represent the European states who were least affected by Latin Christianity. Tubal was the father of the Latin states, and Meschech was the father of modern day Turkey.
I will give you to the birds of the air – as described further in verse 17, and in Revelation 19:17, these are the eagles, which are the last day saints.
I will give Gog a burial place there in Israel – the death of the beast described in Revelation 19:20.
they shall cleanse the land – figuratively the kingdom of heaven.
Speak to every sort of bird – See Rev 19:17, the eagles.
of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks – the Targum Jarchi, and Kimchi, interprets this as kings, princes, dukes, rulers, and governors; as we read in Rev 19:18.
I will bring back the captives of Jacob – the restoration of Israel is described as in Ezekiel 37.
I shall have poured out My Spirit – as described in Ezekiel 37:14, the Spirit of God makes a “great Army” of the people of Israel to restore the truth and capture the beast.
