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. 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.
The accounts of Ezekiel 38 and 39 are in reverse order to Revelation 19 and 20, and in reverse order of time, because Chapters 39 to 48 are devoted to the spiritual Israel, the end time sanctified Church. The nation of Israel was the main subject of Chapters 34 to 38.
The victory of the end time sanctified Church is the “great supper” of God, which is where we begin.
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 are the end time saints.
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 – those who were taken captive by the Beast in “mystery Babylon.”
I shall have poured out My Spirit – as described in Ezekiel 37:14, the Spirit of God makes a “great Army,” a Sanctified Church to restore the truth and capture the beast.
