Summary: Events of this year freed Ezekiel to speak to those who had escaped the destruction. Likewise, the emptying of the land of Israel following 19 September 2009, will become a compelling urgency to us to speak clearly to all true-hearted people who’ve witnessed this event. What Yehuveh is doing in the world right now is predicted. Very soon we must speak clearly to everyone shaken up by this “day of vengeance.”
Scriptural Reference: Ezekiel 33:21.

“And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten.”

History and Related Events
: In solemn tones, Yehuveh responds to Israel’s cries: “Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance. Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye possess the land? Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land? Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence. For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through. Then shall they know that I am Yehuveh, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.” Ezekiel 33:23-29.
        “Three events of 1974 deepened the sense of siege [for the nation of Israel following the Yom Kippur War of 6-28 October 1973]. In May,
fedayeen kidnapped ninety Israeli schoolchildren at Ma’alot. In the subsequent rescue operation by Israeli forces, twenty of the children were killed. The horror felt by all Israel took a particular political turn when it was found that the organizers of the fedayeen operation in Ma’alot were well-known Palestinian ‘moderates’ who had been in dialogue with Israeli ‘doves.’ In October the Arab Summit at Rabat recognized the PLO—the confederation of fedayeen groupings—as sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people. And on November 13, Yasser Arafat, head of the PLO, addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations, where he received a standing ovation. The fury with which Jews watched that was redoubled by the knowledge of the jubilation with which Palestinian Arabs were watching the same specatcle.” O’Brien, Conor Cruise.
