New Defender's Study Bible Notes
38:19 fire of my wrath. God has long been patient with the Muslim nations, who have rejected His Son as Savior, while professing to believe in God as Creator, and the Marxist/atheist nations, who have rejected Him as both Creator and Savior. But His wrath can be restrained no longer when these all collaborate in an effort to annihilate His chosen people.
38:19 great shaking. Israel will be saved not by military might, but by a tremendous earthquake. There will also be “an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone” (Ezekiel 38:22). The gigantic convulsions of nature will affect not only the armies of Gog, but also the whole world.
