14  Therefore prophesy, O mortal, and say to Gog: Thus said Hashem: Surely, on that day, when My people Yisrael are living secure, you will take note,

יד  לָכֵן הִנָּבֵא בֶן־אָדָם וְאָמַרְתָּ לְגוֹג כֹּה אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה הֲלוֹא בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא בְּשֶׁבֶת עַמִּי יִשְׂרָאֵל לָבֶטַח תֵּדָע׃

38:14  When My people Yisrael are living secure

In Yechezkel’s final apocalyptic vision, Gog and Magog make their evil preparations to invade Israel. They see the people dwelling in the land in security and prosperity, and feel that the time is ripe to attack. Hashem tells Gog and Magog that through their evil, they will be destroyed, and God’s name will be sanctified throughout the world (verse 16). This verse gives us a hint into the mind of Israel’s enemies. The sight of the People of Israel living in peace and quiet in Eretz Yisrael motivates them to attack. Although Israel poses no threat, her enemies are prepared to risk everything to see her destroyed. But as God makes clear, He will never allow that to happen.

    With the military alliance between Russia, Iran and Turkey could this be the beginnings of Ezekiel's prophecy?

    Praying Psalm 83:1-18 A Psalm of ASAPH: A Prayer for the Destruction of Israel's Enemies: Keep not Your silence, O God hold not Your peace, and be not still,O God. For, lo,your (Israel's) enemies make a tumult: and they who hate you have lifted up the head. They crafty counsel against Your People, and consulted against Your Hidden Ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against You. The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have helped the children of Lot. Selah. (Pause think on this) Do unto them as unto the Midianites: as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: Which perished at En-dor; they became as dung for the Earth. Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yes, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna Who said, Let us take to ourselves the Houses of God in possession. O my God, make them like a wheel; as stubble before the wind. As the fire burns a wood, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire; So persecute them with Your tempest, and make them afraid with Your Storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek Your Name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and troubled forever; yes, let them be put to shame, and perish. That men may know that You Whose Name alone is JEHOVAH, are the Most High over all the Earth. Amen Amen Amen
