"RE: Raul D - Burning Weapons"
Regional vs Global lets only compare the earthquakeEzekiel 38:18-20 every wall shall fall to the ground and the 7th vial of Rev 16:17-19 the cities of the nations fell, both are talking about a Global Earthquake, lets compare, both are talking about what's happening in Israel and around the globe at the same time, buildings and houses have walls and all of them fell down .
Amy you said Ezekiel 38-39:16 appears to cover one regional event. Amy the earthquake is both.
in Ezekiel 38:20 sayes all the men that are upon the face of the earth Notice All MEN are not ALL in Israel, All men are spread out through the Globe, its not only Regional, All men upon earth its Global. All men in the whole earth shall shake at God's presence.
Amy consider this if every wall fell in Israel the list will include mountains, bridges, highways, infustructure, roads, airports, hospitals, banks, no more gas stations, there will be no electricity or fresh water, etc. won't the building of the 3rd temple be delayed with no one having a home or residence for shelter, and all that debris to clean up especially with the strength of the earthquake to cause every wall to fall and causing the mountains to be thrown down, and the steep places to fall. And if its in the middle of the tribulation how will the AC sit in the temple if every wall including the 3rd temple fell to the ground.
Ezekiel 38:18-20 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20**So that the fishes of the sea,
**and the fowls of the heaven,
**and the beasts of the field,
**and all creeping things that creep upon the earth ( global not just regional ),
and all the men (Global ) that are upon the face of the earth,
shall shake at my presence ( Global Earthquake ),
and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall,
and every wall shall fall to the ground.
Rev16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings;
and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts,
and the cities of the nations fell:
