This will be the last war because all the nations will gather against GOD and his people and he will destroy
There will be a uniting of the two sticks which is Judah and the House of Israel which split in two this is further explained in the chapter of the House of David.
Ezekiel 37:16-17 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick, and they shall become one in thine hand. The House of Israel is referred to as Ephraim because Ephraim was the leading tribe over the House of Israel) (Joseph is the father of Ephraim and son of Jacob Ezekiel 37:21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: (Meaning as Judah is gathered so is the House of Israel for them to become one Kingdom again.)
As stated in the Chapter of The Feast days there will be a gathering in the wilderness for where GOD will make a covenant not like the covenant in the new testament (this covenant is a way to purge rebels from going further the true followers of GOD. wilderness here meaning uninhabited land
Ezekiel 20:35-38 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. Like as 1 pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord God. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. (The wilderness is Africa as that is where the Israelites were taken from as slaves) plead meaning to execute judgement which is what GOD will do as he is purging rebels) (Rebels are those that refuse to obey GOD
Isaiah 11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.(the outcasts are the Israelites) (ensign meaning flag symbolizing Israelites forming their own Kingdom which gives us a flag) becoming a Kingdom is very important because it means this is beyond a movement, or religious beliefs, we are nation with a king. This is explained in the Chapter House of David Ethiopian Solomonic Dynasty
How do we know that there will be a kingdom according to Zechariah 12:8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them. It says House of David which is the royal family of Kings of the Israelites
Ezekiel 37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
The Israelites as a kingdom will take back the land of Israel with our capital being Jerusalem and as a consuming fire the powers of the world will be unable to stop the Israelites. Zechariah 12 6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. (Governors meaning this will be a constitutional monarchy meaning a Kingdom with a constitution) (our constitution being The Law of GOD) Devour meaning we will not not need have to beg when we become a Kingdom we will take what is ours and what we are owed
Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (burdensome stone meaning the people that try! to rise against us will fail)
Following the Israelites returning to the land of Israel as our homeland the nations will want to destroy us and make war Joel 3:9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: (It has already been explained who the Gentiles are in a previous chapter)
Ezekiel 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: (who Gog, Magog. Meschech, and Tubal are has already been explained in the previous chapters)
Ezekiel 38:8 ...in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, (latter years meaning this takes place after the Israelites have arrived in their homeland and brought back from the sword (sword meaning violence because our land was taken from us through war and violence) and now we have taken our land brought it back Ezekiel 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, (the final war occuring once the Israelites have settled in peace in their homeland)
Ezekiel 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods that dwell in the midst of the land. (spoil here meaning the nations will come to rob, attack Israel) the people that are gathered out of the nations arethe Israelites who have left babylon to return to Israel
Ezekiel 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: (from the north parts referring to primarily to caucasians and their military which now have other races like spanish and black people that have joined them) (in end times these symbols such as horse in hebrew means swift can be referring to military weapons such as fighter jets, rockets, drones, etc) All of them will be gathered in the valley of Jehoshaphat Joel 3:12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Heathen being all the people that want to fight against and Jehoshaphat the hebrew meaning is "the LORD has judged" symbolic of when GOD destroyed Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir GOD told Israel they will not fight in the war GOD will fight for them
2 Chronicles 20:15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.
King Jehoshaphat then appointed singers "that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Chronicles 20:22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. (ambushments here meaning God raised jealousies and animosities among their enemies themselves, then into a general confusion, and open hostilities and outrages, they destroyed themselves, this will happen again in the final war which is why Joel makes referrence to the valley of Jehoshaphat!
Ezekiel 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother. (sword against brother meaning that gog and magog armies will start fighting against each other and destroy themselves)
Revelation 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Revelation 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. The war ends with the destruction of satan and his armies gog and magog.
