Ezekiel 37, and Ezekiel as a whole is not talking about our modern time. It is speaking directly about Ezekiels time, where the Hebrews were in Babylonian captivity. The Hebrews did return to Israel after their 400 years of Babylonian captivity. After the fall of the Neo Babylonian empire, Cyrus the great permitted the Hebrews to return to Palestine. Where they then constructed the second temple. This was all fulfilled in that time, exactly as Ezekiel prophecies. Jesus Christ finally fulfilled all the old testament prophecies.
You may not have read the Scofield bible, but you have appropriated it’s lies. You are doing the same thing that KoncreteMind does when he says the Old Testament prophecies were all talking about modern African Americans. That’s what Zionists so too, they say the Old Testament was talking about the 20th century.
it wasn’t. It’s clear that it wasnt. And to believe that it is, you are denying the entire New Testament, the coming of Christ, who fulfilled the spiritual prophecies of the Old testament, as the Hebrew people fulfilled the physical ones by returning to Palestine in 500BC where they later had the Messiah born in their midst. And in that time,strange, it wasn’t an empire set up by a usurious banking family based on theft, murder and oppression. Like the state that you claim “god” made in the 20th century.
You are promoting an error, an error based on the denial of Christ’s fulfillment and historical fact
The reason people struggle with the passage in Ezekiel 37:15-28, specifically where and when
it applies, is because one key word/name has been left untranslated from the original Hebrew into English.
The Hebrew word/name "David" means "Well-Beloved" in English. Ezekiel 37:24 could not possibly be referring to king David (nor could Ezek. 34:23
), as king David had already been dead for several hundred years when The Word visited Ezekiel to give him this end-time
We can be absolutely certain that this prophecy is NOT
about the return of the 2-tribed "House of Judah" to Palestine c. 500 BC, because the 2-tribed "House of Judah" and the 10-tribed "House of Israel" were NOT
reunited at that time under One King
Similarly, we can be absolutely certain that this prophecy is NOT
about the return of the "Jews" (Ashkenazis) to Palestine in 1948, because the 2-tribed "House of Judah" and the 10-tribed "House of Israel" were NOT
reunited under One King
/Shepherd at that time either.
King/Shepherd that God will place over the reunited remnant
of the 12-tribes of Israel is obviously Christ
, Whom God has made The King of kings and Lord of lords and the Good Shepherd, exactly as prophesied.
21:26 Thus saith the Lord "I AM"; Remove the diadem (sovereignty), and take off the crown: this [shall] not [be] the same: exalt [him that is] low (Line of Zarah), and abase [him that is] high (Line of Pharez).
21:27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no [more], [overturned] UNTIL
he come whose Right it is; and I
will give it [him - Shiloh (Gen. 49:10
1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS (Saviour).
1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of The Highest: and the Lord God his Father SHALL give unto him the Throne of David
Please consider the fact that the prophecies (OT and NT) concerning Father (God) giving Christ the Throne of David have yet to occur
.(although the 3 "overturns" in Ezekiel 21:27 have already happened and the 4th and final overturn has already started).
Please also consider the fact that God made a promise to king David (Jer. 33:17
), that he would NEVER
want (lack) a descendant of his to physically
sit on the Throne of Israel (the Davidic Throne), which means the Israelite throne MUST
have survived the overthrow of king Zedekiah (c. 588 BC) and MUST
exist yet today, for God Himself to take it away from the succession of the earthly line of David and give to Christ.
There was no king in Jerusalem when Nehemiah and the other 42, 360 souls (see Ezra 2:64
, Neh. 7:66
) returned to the land of Israel to rebuild Jerusalem.
Similarly, there has been no king in the present-day state of Israel in the Middle East. And there won't be ONE
King/Shepherd over Israel until Christ rules over the 144,000, gathered from the 12-tribes of Israel listed in Revelation 7:4-9
37:15 The Word of the "I AM" came again unto me, saying,
37:16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions (2 Tribes): then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and [for] all the "House of Israel" his companions (the 10 "Lost" Tribes):
37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand (Genesis 49:10
37:18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not show us what thou [meanest] by these?
37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord "I AM"; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which [is] in the hand of Ephraim, and the  tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, [even] with the stick of Judah (2 tribes), and make them one stick, and they shall be one in Mine hand.
37:20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
37:21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord "I AM"; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, where they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
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 (ch. 35:10
37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be My people, and I will be their God.
37:24 And My Well-Beloved servant [shall be] King over them; and they all shall have One shepherd: they shall also walk in My Judgments, and observe My Statutes, and DO
37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob My servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, [even] they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and My Well-Beloved servant [shall be] their prince (Daniel 10:21
) for ever.
37:26 Moreover I will make a Covenant of peace with them; it shall be an Everlasting Covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My Sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
37:27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
37:28 And the heathen shall know that I the "I AM" do sanctify Israel, when My Sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
