No History, No Understanding

Ezekiel is a book of prophecy that was confirmed by events later in history.

Ezekiel 12:13, “The Lord will spread out a net and trap him as he leaves Jerusalem. He will than be led away to the city of Babylon, but will never see that place, even though he will die there.”

“He will then be led away…that place: According to 2 Kings 25:6, 7, King Zedekiah of Judah was blinded before he was taken to Babylon.” CEV Bible Notes

Last night, Pastor Monte Knudsen spoke of the prophecies in Ezekiel 38, 39. He explained which country was represented by each of the names in the Bible.

But to truly understand what is happening in Israel today, you have to know your history.

Reading the original document tells a different story than we hear on the news. The Bible is the oldest document and its facts, dates, history, and geography can be confirmed today.
