The Nuclear Cleanup – Ezekiel 39:8-9

The following entry is part of a commentary on Ezekiel 36-39, which is fictionalized in my book, The Last Aliyah – Book 1 of The Time of Jacob’s Trouble trilogy.

Ezekiel 39:8 – Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this [is] the day whereof I have spoken.

This is one of the days that God has been looking forward to for many, many years. The day that He will revenge Himself upon His enemies, save His people, and be once again worshipped and honored by them.

Why has He been so patient and long-suffering? So that many Gentile sons and daughters could be brought into His Family by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. The time of the Church Age is drawing to a close, with every tribe, tongue, and nation hearing the Gospel and the message of Grace spreading over the world as never before.

His incredible Love, Grace, and Mercy for us is the main reason He has delayed moving His hand against the evil rulers and nations of the world. God’s love for us is surely greater than His anger and wrath against His enemies.

Ezekiel 39:9 – And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:

What kind of weapons could Israel burn for 7 years? Surely not swords, bows, and arrows! There is a kind of weapon that could be converted (“burned”) for at least 7 years: nuclear weapons. There have also been recent research programs developed that can efficiently convert nuclear weapons into domestic nuclear energy sources.

The shelf-life of most of Russia’s nuclear weapons is between 7-15 years, and they rotate them out every 6th year (depending on the type of weapon) to ensure they will still function properly if/when used.

Why will Israel burn them for 7 years? Probably because that coincides with the period of the Tribulation. Not only is God supplying them with all the weapons they need during the Tribulation (as the whole world gathers against them), but their energy needs as well.

One response to “The Nuclear Cleanup – Ezekiel 39:8-9

  1. I theorize that Muslims stole the aircraft of flight MH 370, are equipping the aircraft with a Neutron bomb payload from either Russia or Iran. They would fly it over Israeli skies and detonate the bomb causing an EMP wave that will cancel all Israel’s defense systems. This would happen right after the Rapture which will paralyze the US immediately as well. Then, Russia will head the coalition attack on Israel. As Ezekiel says, God destroys all of the enemies in the invasion.

    It is interesting the apparent “domestic” use of the weapons by the Israeli men in the “cities.” It’s what makes me think of the substitutionary use of the “weapons” needed after an EMP explosion.

    Missing in that portion of Scripture is the possibility that the Jews, after such powerful and impressive destruction of their enemies, will take control over the rest of Israel and specifically, Temple Mount. It’s the end of Palestine and all of it’s conflicts. They would rebuild the Temple in 3 1/2 years. Antichrist would rush to offer a peace treaty with Israel and pretend that it is his wish to give the Temple Mount to Israel. I believe the Israelis will accept Antichrist as Messiah and he will inaugurate the Temple Mount, triggering Jacob’s Trouble.
