a day is near

Ezekiel 30:1-5 (JDV)

Ezekiel 30:1 The word of Yahveh happened to me. This is what it said:
Ezekiel 30:2 “Son of Adam, prophesy and say, ‘This is what the Lord Yahveh says: “Wail, tragedy for that day!”
Ezekiel 30:3 You see, a day is near; a day belonging to Yahveh is near. It will be a day of clouds, a time of doom for the nations.
Ezekiel 30:4 A sword will come against Egypt, and there will be anguish in Cush when the murdered ones fall in Egypt, and its wealth is taken away, and its foundations are demolished.
Ezekiel 30:5 Cush, Put, and Lud, and all the various foreign troops, plus Libya and the men of the covenant land will fall by the sword along with them.

a day is near

The language of God’s judgment upon the pagan nations is language fit to describe the final judgment: destruction in Gehenna. Just as Egypt was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar’s invasion, along with all the supporting armies with it, so one day the wicked will be destroyed.

God’s word for them is his word for us. The day is near.
