Ezekiel 20:30 Go: tell the Israelites, the Lord God says: Are you defiling yourselves as your forefathers did and lusting after other gods?
Israelites; now every Christian person, the Overcomers for God.
Ezekiel 20:31-32 You are defiling yourselves this very day with your false religions and insincere faith. My people, I refuse to be consulted by you. You can never be like other peoples, who worship idols.
The idols of materialism and self gratification.
Ezekiel 20:33-36 As I live, says the Lord, I shall reign over you with a strong hand and by My wrath, I shall bring you out from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been dispersed. I shall bring you into the Meeting place in the desert, there I shall confront you and bring you to judgement. Just as I did in Egypt with your forefathers, so I shall judge you.
The same as in the first Exodus, The Lord is not seen by them, so this happens before the Return of Jesus.
Ezekiel 20:37-38 I shall make you pass under the rod [of judgement] and I will bring you into the bond of the Covenant. All those who rebel or revolt against Me will not set foot on the soil of Israel.
Ezekiel 20:39-42 Now, you Israelites – go serve your idols. But in days to come you will be punished for it, then no more will you desecrate My holy Name. For there, in the land of Israel, all My chosen people will serve Me. After I have restored you to the Land of your ancestors, I shall require your offerings and gifts and then I will accept you as a fragrant incense. Isaiah 45:16-17
Ezekiel 20:42-44 When I resettle you into all of the Holy Land, you will despise yourselves for your past conduct and you will know that I am your God. Not as your wickedness deserves, but as the honour of My Holy Name demands. Isaiah 43:25
Ezekiel 20:45-48 The Word of the Lord came to me: Ezekiel, turn and face toward the South, prophesy to the desert of the Negev. Say to it: The Lord God says – I am about to set a fire in you and it will consume all flammable things. Its fiery flame will not be put out and all people from the South to the North will be scorched by it. All will see that it is I, the Lord, who has set it ablaze, unable to be quenched.
Reference: REB, NIV, KJV. Some verses condensed.
Verse 30-32 Judah, the Jews and Israel, the nominal Christian peoples alike are atheistic, apostate, they pursue false doctrines, false religions and materialism. This is not their destiny. Isaiah 48:13, Isaiah 60:3.
Verse 33-38 After the Day of vengeance and wrath, the Lord will gather His people into all that area given to Abraham. Isaiah 14:1-2, Isaiah 35:1-10, Jeremiah 5:26, Isaiah 1:25.
Verse 39-40 Do as you will for now, but judgement will come. Isaiah 41:1, Hosea 12:2 In the new nation of Beulah, Isaiah 62:1-5, His righteous people will serve Him. Isaiah 26:2, Isaiah 29:22-23, Isaiah 66:20-21, 1 Peter 2:9-10. “You will know that I am your God” this statement would be unnecessary if all of this prophecy takes place after the Return of Jesus. All this happens before that. His people: a righteous nation, living in peace and prosperity in the Holy Land – being a light to the nations and His witnesses; preparing the world for the Return. Isaiah 42:6 & 43:10
Verse 45-48 There is no record of an event as described, having happened in Israel. The description is what would result from a Coronal Mass Ejection, explosion of the suns surface. Isaiah 30:26
This will be the Lord’s Day of vengeance and wrath, which will clear and cleanse all the area of Greater Israel. Deut. 32:43, Isaiah 63:1-6 & 21:1 & 9:18-19 & 33:10-12 & 10:17-19, Ezekiel 21:1-5, Jeremiah 9:25-26 & 23:19-20. Revelation 6:12-17.
