Prophecy Update: Land of Israel plays by God rules! 8/23/2023 

The world needs to learn a valuable lesson from the scriptures regarding the land of Israel. No one has the right to give the land to anyone but the Jews. Period. End of discussion! Unfortunately, the church is still debating, and the world is still rebelling against God and His revelation. The scriptures are clear as Leviticus states: 

“The land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are but aliens and sojourners with Me.”  

Leviticus 25:23 

The Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Syrians, Edomites, Turks, Catholics, Muslims, and many other powers have fought wars over the land of Israel. Many tried to settle the land, but it has been impossible because the land of Israel was made for the Jews, the natural sons and daughters of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God says that while His people Israel is in the land, the land works, and when they are out of the land, the land will be barren. This is what happened in history! 

“I will make the land desolate so that your enemies who settle in it will be appalled over it.” Leviticus 26:32 

God made it extremely clear to Abraham and to everyone in history that the land of Israel would be the possession of God’s chosen people Israel forever! Genesis 17 reiterates this promise: 

“I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”  


The nature of prophecy causes a sense of anticipation. The land of Israel is an everlasting possession of the people of Israel. Some prophecies are given with no exact timing regarding their fulfillment. Prophecy requires a certain amount of attention to detail. God made certain prophecies complicated so we would have to study book by book to connect the dots. God always connects the dots; Christians are not always diligent to track down the clues and revelation strewn across scripture! That is the case with Ezekiel 36-39. These prophecies include the return of Israel to her land! 

Two main teachings confront us in Ezekiel 36-39, the return of Israel to her land and the war of Gog Magog. The promises regarding the return of Israel to her land are many and scattered throughout the scriptures. God promised to bring Israel back to her land in unbelief. This happened in 1948 as the culmination of many sovereign miracles by the living God. These miracles started as early as 1830 leading to the rise of Zionism, the driving force behind the ultimate return in 1948. Since that day, God has been working in history to prepare the land of Israel for the invasion of Russia and her allies.  

“But you, O mountains of Israel, you will put forth your branches and bear your fruit for My people Israel; for they will soon come. Yes, I will cause men—My people Israel—to walk on you and possess you, so that you will become their inheritance and never again bereave them of children.’  

Ezekiel 36:8, 12 

Our text in Ezekiel 36 reveals that God is prophesying to the mountains of Israel, the very mountains that are in dispute every day at the United Nations. The world hates it that Israel is back in her land, and they want them out. Consider this headline: 

“Smotrich calls for IDF to ‘go on the offensive’ regarding Palestinian terror.” Following a deadly terror attack on Saturday that took the lives of Shai Silas Nigerker, 60, and his son Aviad Nir, 28, at a car wash in Huwara, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich wrote a post on social media calling the Israel Defense Forces to “go on the offensive.”  “The IDF must go on the offensive in Judea and Samaria and restore deterrence and security, while at the same time, we are working to intensify the construction and strengthening of settlements in the area.”  

The world calls Judea Samaria the West Bank because they do not recognize any claim by Israel that Judea and Samaria are part of the land God promised Israel. Much of our Bible is about things that happened in Judea and Samaria, so it is no wonder that Satan wants to keep the Jews out of their land. At issue with the world are the groups of Jews who set up homes in their land, who claim the land on biblical grounds, and who are regularly attacked by Palestinian terrorists. I believe that there will be a war for Israel to take her land and for God to fulfill His promise in Ezekiel 36. Here is why, check out these quotes from this same article: 

“Samaria Council head Yossi Dagan blamed the Palestinian Authority for the attack due to its ‘pay-for-slay’ policy of rewarding the families of terrorists.  

The finance minister has begun promoting a plan to increase Israeli authority and presence in Area C of Judea and Samaria by strengthening 155 “wildcat outposts,” according to a local N12 news report. Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the spokesperson for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, condemned Smotrich’s plan to legalize the outposts, calling them “illegal.”  

“Attempts by Israeli occupation authorities and their extremist ministers to confer legitimacy upon any settlement established on the lands of the State of Palestine will not succeed,” Rudeineh said.”  

I believe that God set up a future war in the West Bank so that He could fulfill His promises in Ezekiel 36-37. Part of this set up happened in the Trump Administration. Here is something that happened that changed the trajectory: 

“November 18, 2019, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, signified a shift in the State Department’s policy toward Israeli settlements in the West Bank, when he announced: “The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law.” The very next day, the United Nations overwhelmingly passed one of its one-sided anti-Israel resolutions that deems Israel as occupying Palestinian territory with no reference to Palestinian responsibility. Surprisingly, and marking its own policy shift, Canada supported the anti-Israel resolution, thus regarding the settlements, including where I was standing in Gilo, illegal.”  

Since the Trump Administration shined a light on the lies of the Palestinian Authority and their evil desire to kill every Jew in the world, the nation of Israel has been moving towards war with all of the terrorist Jihadi groups! Israel has enemies actively calling for her destruction on the south, north, east, west, and within. It is just a matter of time before they make their move. I mention the West Bank and the enemies within because this is exactly what Ezekiel says would happen:  

“Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, “Surely in the fire of My jealousy I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and against all Edom, who appropriated My land for themselves as a possession with wholehearted joy and with scorn of soul, to drive it out for a prey. ‘Therefore, prophesy concerning the land of Israel and say to the mountains and to the hills, to the ravines and to the valleys, “Thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and in My wrath because you have endured the insults of the nations.’  

Ezekiel 36:4,6 

Jordan currently has a peace treaty with Israel and Jordan claims that the West Bank is Jordanian territory. The world agrees with Jordan and not with God. This will lead to the war predicted in Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17. There are countless other scriptures that tell us this war is coming. God will fulfill Ezekiel 36 thru a war that will destroy the Palestinian Authority, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hezbollah, and Fatah. These next few articles show how close we are to this war: 

“Defense official: Rockets on northern Israel ‘just a matter of time’… Rockets originating from Palestinian terror groups in Judea and Samaria will soon be launched at communities in northern Israel, including the coastal city of Hadera, according to a senior Defense Ministry official. Lt. Col. Yaron Buskila, former head commander of the IDF’s operations in Judea and Samaria and current secretary general of the Security Movement thinktank, said that the Jezreel Valley near Haifa area is also likely to be in the line of fire.”  

“In attempting to predict the future of relations between societies in conflict, a particularly telling aspect is the education of the younger generation. Hence, the education system of the Palestinian Authority (PA) is of great importance, including summer camps attended by children and teens. A look at the content imparted in these summer camps indeed reveals troubling facts, such as glorification of terrorists. MEMRI has been following these camps, and the extremist indoctrination that occurs in them, for several years. They show that the education imparted by the PA and UNRWA does nothing to lay the foundation for reconciliation and peace with the State of Israel. In fact, it consistently encourages the opposite, inciting the youth to negating the very existence of Israel and encouraging extremism and terrorism against Israeli citizens.”  

“Recently, there has been an escalation in efforts by Palestinian terror organizations, led by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), to establish themselves in the West Bank and set up a military infrastructure to conduct terror attacks and armed struggle against Israel from there. This is evident primarily in a) the cooperation among the various armed factions and the prevalent terror activity in the refugee camps being carried out by terrorist militias such as the Jenin Brigade and Lion’s Den; b) in the significant increase in terror activity emanating from the West Bank, particularly Jenin; c) in explicit public statements by terror organization leaders concerning escalating terror activity in the West Bank, and d) in the undermining of the Palestinian Authority’s control and governance in Jenin refugee camp, which was highlighted by Israel’s July 3-5 Operation Home and Garden military incursion into Jenin.”    

These articles have been written in the last week. The left in Israel is giddy over being able to weaken the Israel Defense Force because they believe they can get rid of those Jews and Christians who believe that Judea and Samaria are part of Israel proper. They believe that Israel needs to lose a war so that they can initiate their leftist dream of unity based on secular humanism. The worst of these traitors is Yuval Harari. He is a traitor to Israel and should be put on trial. Here is a quote by him that summarizes his hatred of God and the Bible: 

“Israeli historian, philosopher and best-selling author Yuval Noah Harari has warned that artificial intelligence is now able to compose its own religious texts that would likely attract worshipers. “Of course, religions throughout history claimed that their holy books were written by unknown human intelligence. This was never true before. This could become true very, very quickly, with far-reaching consequences.”  

The enemies of Israel are within and without. God promises that He will respond as He fulfills His promises to His people Israel. One final prophecy comes from the Romans and it is the promise that God is going to save His people Israel. This is consistent with all of the prophets and the establishment of the New Covenant among them:  

“For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery—so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, 

God is on the move…get ready!

About Joe

We live in the last days and the Bible commands us to watch for the Lord’s coming. I have a keen interest in history, prophecy and current events. I read widely about political and military developments and write a weekly blog from the things I follow. My special interest is in Middle Eastern affairs.

Since I was in college, I have also studied how God judges nations. It all started in Buck Hatches’ class at Columbia Bible College in 1979.

I fell in love with God’s word and especially the prophets. The results of this interest led me to writing The ‘I’ Judgements: Four Sins that Bring about the Fall of Nations. It serves as a warning to the United States, showing biblically of what we need to repent.
