God Will Use the Tribulation to Cause People of the Nations to Know He is the LORD

Moab (Currently Part of Jordan) Will Know That the God of Israel is the LORD in the Last Days From Ezekiel 25

Although this passage and some other passages of judgment had a partial fulfillment in Old Testament times there is probably still a more complete fulfillment in the last days in the tribulation or second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ the Messiah but also judge of the earth. One of the reasons for God's judgment of Moab was that they just considered Israel as any other nation as many people again do today. Mount Seir was another name for Edom which is in the south of what is called the country of Jordan today and refers more particularly to the Edomite capaital now known by its name of Petra. Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon and Kiriathaim were principle cities of Moab. God promised he would open up Moab, which is part of the current day country of Jordan to fighters from the east perhaps from Persia. God promised that these fighters from the east would be used to judge Moab and like Ammon which was also part of current day Jordan take them away from being part of the nations. Although these nations are not currently independent nations, God might still have a last days fulfillment of judgment against them. Although the country of Jordan is officially at peace with Israel, there are some people like Islamic militants who live in Jordan who still do not recognize Israel as a country with a Jewish character. Their not recognizing Israel as a Jewish state would displease the true God who is also the God of Israel. God says the purpose of the past judgments against Moab and a likely end-time judgment is so that the nation and people of Moab know that he is the LORD or the true and self-existent God. The scripture reference from Ezekiel 25 of God's judgment of Moab including a likely last days aspect to cause them to know that He is the LORD is as follows:

Scripture Reference From Ezekiel 25 of God's Judgment of Moab to Cause Them to Know That He is the LORD Including Possible Last Days Fulfillment

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say, Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen; Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the cities, from the cities which are on the frontiers, the glory of the country, Beth-Jeshimoth, Baal-meon, and Kiriathaim, Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites, and will give them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the nations. And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know that I am the LORD. Ezekiel 25:8-11
