Bible teaching with an emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the Jewish roots of Christianity
Series: “Ezekiel and the MidEast “Piece” Process (2023)”
Dr. Jeffrey Seif, David, and Kirsten take viewers into one of the Bible’s most mysterious and fascinating books. Ezekiel prophesies Israel’s re-emergence as a nation-state at “day’s end,” and also warns that neighboring nation-states will marshal military resources as they seek to annihilate the fledgling state.
Ezekiel’s name means “God strengthens.” Reared as a priest in Jerusalem, Ezekiel finds himself among the exiles who are relocated to Babylon. His encounter with God in a Heavenly vision launches his prophetic message to a wayward people.
A survey of the entire book of Ezekiel—judgment on Judah and the nations around it, Israel’s re-emergence, a climactic war, and a restored Temple—with emphasis on prophecy fulfillment today. (Ezekiel 33, 34, and 36)
Dr. Jeffrey Seif examines particular pieces of prophecy, noting Judah’s painful downfall, and God’s everlasting mercy through His promise to gather and rebuild Israel—something that is happening today. (Ezekiel 3 and 16)
Israel will rally against its hostile neighbors; this part highlights Ezekiel’s predictions that larger regional forces will mobilize against Israel in a climactic war that they will lose. (Ezekiel 25, 28, and 29)
Israel’s re-emergence as a nation is dramatized through a startling vision of skeletons rising from their graves, forming a mighty nation. Independence Hall in Tel Aviv serves as the backdrop to a remarkable prophecy fulfilled in our generation. (Ezekiel 37)
