While this prophecy is about Jordan, Turkey and the Philistines of Gaza; it is very powerful in absolutely refuting the false traditions and false teachings of certain modern false prophets.
This prophecy is about Nebuchadnezzar coming through that land, as a fore type of the latter day nations of Asia sweeping through those lands on their way to Jerusalem in the third year of the tribulation (Rev 9:15).
A prophecy for the end times about Ammon and Moab [modern Jordan]; Gaza and Edom [Turkey].
Ezekiel 25:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, 25:2 Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them;
Contrary to the false teachings of many, which claim that the Islamic nations are the king of the South; the exact opposite is true. In the end times Ammon and Moab [Jordan] and Edom [Turkey] will be allied with Assur [Germany, Austria and Hungary] the New Europe [Babylon; the king of the North!] as per Psalm 83.
Jordan and Turkey will escape from the New Europe, because they will be allied with the New Europe.
This is so obvious, so simple, so very clear; and yet those who follow their idols of men to stand on their own false traditions and reject the Word of God: shall not understand (Dan 12)!
Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
Psalm 83:4 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. 83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
83:6 The tabernacles of Edom [modern Turkey], and the Ishmaelites [true Arabs, sons of Ishmael, the descendants of Abraham and Agar]; of Moab [modern Jordan, and the Hagarenes [Arabs who are sons of Agar by another husband than Abraham, and are also not the sons of Ishmael; probably the Gulf States];
83:7 Geba [Lebanon], and Ammon [also modern Jordan], and Amalek [a tribe of the Turks]; the Philistines [Gaza] with the inhabitants of Tyre [Lebanon];
83:8 Assur [Germany, Austria, Hungary] also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot [will help modern Jordan; Ammon and Moab].
After the soon coming regional war and a Mideast peace deal has been agreed, the extremist Jewish Settler Movement will sabotage the coming peace deal.
This will so outrage the Palestinians and the surrounding nations that they will go to war with Judah.
Then God’s protection having been removed, the Psalm 83 nations will rush in and the New Europe will intervene bringing down the present Jewish State.
Then in the third year the New Europe will attack Asia and the Asian armies will counterattack Europe and will sweep through the Middle East (Dan 11:44, Rev 12).
Ezekiel 25:3 And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, Aha, against my sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity;
Because God wanted them to correct Judah just a little and they rejoiced in shedding the blood of their brethren, these nations will also be corrected when the New Europe goes to make war with Asia in its third year.
The Asian nations will counterattack and will flood through the Middle East to make their way to Jerusalem to get at the false prophet and European political ruler in the great battle of the coming of Christ.
25:4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.
25:5 And I will make Rabbah [the city of Ammon] a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a couching place for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
Why will God bring the men of the east [Asia] against Jordan, the Arabs and Turkey?
25:6 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all thy despite against the land of Israel;
These nations will be allied with the king of the North, and in the third year the king of the North, Babylon the Great, the New Europe; will attack the nations of Asia now coming together as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (Dan 11:44, Rev 12).
The nations of Asia will survive the blow and counterattack Europe and the Allies of the New Europe; including Turkey, the Arab nations, Palestine, Gaza, Jordan and Lebanon, also sweeping through Iraq and Syria.
Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
When his attack on Asia fails the final great false prophet and the political leader of the New Europe will flee to Jerusalem where their remaining army is located, and then the Asian nations will gather together at Megiddo to attack the city Jerusalem. For more on this see Zechariah 14.
11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain [Jerusalem]; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
Ezekiel 25:7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee [Jordan], and will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the people, [from being a nation] and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries [Jordan shall no longer be an independent nation after this and during the millennium]: I will destroy thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.
Moab the brother people of Amman is mentioned next along with Seir.
Ancient Seir was geographically in the south of modern Jordan; the people of Seir were overwhelmed by the Edomites, the descendants of Esau, and the term Seir usually refers to Edom. Esau then migrated to Turkmenistan and then many went to modern Turkey and now dwell in Turkey and in Turkmenistan. The nations of the east will also pass through the Stan countries on their way to Jerusalem.
25:8 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say, Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen;
Because Moab and his brother Ammon [modern Jordan] ally themselves with Babylon the Great, the coming New Europe; and rejoice at the tribulation of Judah and take advantage of Judah for their own gain; the nation of Jordan will cease to exist as an independent nation.
25:9 Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the country, Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim, 25:10 Unto the men of the east with the [Moab is to be destroyed as a nation along with his brother the Ammonites; both being the modern country of Jordan.] Ammonites, and will give them in possession [in the millennium Jordan shall become a possession of Israel and David her resurrected king], that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the [Jordan will no longer be an independent nation] nations. 25:11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab [both Ammon and Moab constitute modern Jordan]; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
At the beginning of the tribulation, Edom [Turkey] will ally itself with the king of the North the New Europe. Turkey will not be one of the final ten nations of the New Federal Europe, but will be allied with them as per Psalm 83 above.
When the tribulation begins with the fall of Jerusalem and the the Jewish State, Turkey will rejoice and will rush to avenge themselves of any perceived wrongs of the Jewish State; for this reason God will open them up to retribution and correction by the men of the east!
25:12 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them; 25:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.
After the armies of Asia have passed through Turkey and after Messiah comes; the resurrected David will be given the throne over a united Israel, and they will, at the command of Messiah the Christ, take control of Turkey. Millennial Israel will also absorb Jordan and much of Syria, and Gaza will be ruled by Israel in the millennium.
Not today but in the millennium that a united Israel will receive her inheritance from Egypt to the Euphrates; by the command and through the power of the King of kings!
25:14 And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.
The Philistines; Modern Gaza
25:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for the old [the longstanding hatreds] hatred; 25:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims [Philistines], and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.
The Gaza militants will soon be defeated to make a peace deal, but the generations of hatred will continue to smolder; and when Jewish Extremists sabotage the peace deal, and Judah is overcome at the start of the tribulation; the Gazan’s will arise with the Palestinians and the surrounding countries to take vengeance upon Judah.
At the end of the tribulation these people will be corrected in fury by God with the sword of the armies of Asia, and those that survive will know that the Eternal is God and they will seek God in sincere repentance and will become the tributaries of Millennial Israel.
25:17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.
Ezekiel 26 is a continuation of the Ezekiel 25 prophecies against the nations of Psalm 83.
A prophecy of the latter day fall of Tyre to the nations of the east
Ezekiel 26:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 26:2 Son of man, because that Tyrus hath said against Jerusalem, Aha, she is broken that was the gates [Judah being the entry to Jerusalem and the Temple mount.] of the people: she is turned [Judah is taken] unto me: I shall be replenished [with loot], now she is laid waste [Tyrus rejoices in the fall of Judah (Joel 3, Amos 1)]
In the third year of the tribulation, the men of Asia will respond to an attack by Europe and will come through the Middle East to confront the ruler of Babylon the Great [the New Europe] and the false prophet at Jerusalem. As they come they will destroy the allies of Babylon the Great [the New Europe] including Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the Arabs of Arabia and the Gulf States, and Gaza.
This is so simple, so clear, so obvious in scripture! Yet those who stand on the false traditions of their own imaginations and not on the whole Word of God, are the wicked (Dan 12) and CANNOT understand! Only the WISE [those who follow Christ and the whole Word of God] shall understand (Dan 12).
The countries surrounding the Jewish State will be enraged that the Extremist Settler Movement Jews have sabotaged the peace deal and they will attack and overcome Judah with the help of the New Europe; then when Europe attacks Asia, the armies of Asia shall respond against the European System AND ITS ALLIES!
During the time of Nebuchadnezzar the nations came up against Tyre; and after Tyre surrendered to Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar turned to Judah and the surrounding nations also fell to Nebuchadnezzar.
Today those nations including Tyre and Lebanon will be allied with Babylon, which took them in ancient times, and they shall fall to another wave of armies, this time from the east.
Tyre fell to Babylon and paid tribute, but the final permanent destruction of Tyre will come in the final wave of armies from Asia, late in the tribulation.
26:3 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee, as the sea causeth his waves to come up. 26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock.
Ancient Tyre was overcome by Babylon, and in the near future Lebanon will be overthrown again, this time by the nations of Asia; and instead of being a great seaport Tyre will become a place for fishermen.
26:5 It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD: and it shall become a spoil to the nations.
The daughters of Tyre are the surrounding villages of Lebanon.
26:6 And her daughters which are in the field [outside and around the city] shall be slain by the sword; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
This is DUAL and happened in the past when Babylon came up to take the whole region including Tyre; and it will happen again when the nations of Asia take the region.
It is now soon coming again, when Tyre and the nations of Psalm 83 ally themselves with the Babylon of the New Europe; because of that and because of their wickedness and long standing hatreds, Jesus Christ shall give them over to the armies of Asia which will come up in response to the attack of the New Europe, and Tyre will fall for the final time.
26:7 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people.
26:8 He shall slay with the sword thy daughters [descendants] in the field [countryside]: and he shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against thee, and lift up the buckler against thee. 26:9 And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with his axes he shall break down thy towers.
26:10 By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall cover thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, and of the wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter into thy gates, as men enter into a city wherein is made a breach. 26:11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garrisons shall go down to the ground.
26:12 And they shall make a spoil of thy riches, and make a prey of thy merchandise: and they shall break down thy walls, and destroy thy pleasant houses: and they shall lay thy stones and thy timber and thy dust in the midst of the water. 26:13 And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.
This process began anciently with the first “in part” fulfillment by Nebuchadnezzar; and the fall of Tyre will conclude in its complete fulfillment by the armies of Asia during the tribulation.
26:14 And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be a place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for I the LORD have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
26:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyrus; Shall not the isles [nations of the isles] shake [tremble in fear] at the sound of thy fall, when the wounded cry, when the slaughter is made in the midst of thee? 26:16 Then all the princes of the sea shall come down from their thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their broidered garments: they shall clothe themselves with trembling; they shall sit upon the ground, and shall tremble at every moment, and be astonished at thee.
26:17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited of seafaring men, the renowned city, which wast strong in the sea, she and her inhabitants, which cause their terror to be on all that haunt it! 26:18 Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yea, the isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure.
26:19 For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate city [in the tribulation], like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee; 26:20 When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into the pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old, with them that go down to the pit, that thou be not inhabited; and I shall set glory [Messiah the Christ will come and rule the living] in the land of the living; 26:21 I will make thee a terror [an awesome example], and thou shalt be no more: though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord GOD.
