“Thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to My servant Jacob. And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.” Ezekiel 28:25-26 (KJV)
This prophecy through Ezekiel is more far reaching than just a promise of their returning to the land following the Babylonian captivity. It speaks of a yet future day as well.
It will be a day when all the enemies around Israel are judged, some destroyed entirely, and others will continue, but be friendly with God’s people Israel.
This will take place when Israel will look upon their Messiah Jesus who died on the cross for their sins, was buried and rose again.
Jesus Christ is the only means for all the people of all the world to “Dwell Safely” in any land, or in any period of time.
Remember a key phrase throughout Ezekiel’s prophetic writing is “…They shall know that I am the LORD…” That is God’s desire for you.
Dwell Safely through Christ Jesus.
