know that I am the Lord…

Ezekiel 38:17-23

Thus says the Lord GOD: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?

18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord GOD, “that My fury will show in My face. 19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, 20 so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ 21 I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord GOD. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.” ’

Do we know that he is the Lord?  If not, we will.  Earthquakes that overturn mountains have yet to be seen.

“…The mountains shall be thrown down,…”

God is not bound by time- we are.  He will do as he says, however.  His Word is true and sure.  It is wise to explore this aspect of the nature of God for it makes clear the blessing of His Son’s coming.  How privileged and honored we are.  How great is his mercy!  Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised.  He cares for His own.

Great is the Lord and Greatly to be praised

Psalm 48: 1-2
