There is some debate about when the Ezekiel war will happen among prophecy scholars. Some say it will be during the Tribulation. Some say it could be after the Rapture but before the Tribulation, since the Tribulation doesn't begin at the Rapture but with the Antichrist's covenant with Israel. There is even a belief that the Ezekiel 38-39 war happens before the Rapture because Ezekiel 39:9 says, "'Then those who live in the towns of Israel will go out and use the weapons for fuel and burn them up--the small and large shields, the bows and arrows, the war clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them for fuel." It is highly unlikely that Israel would need to burn weapons for fuel during the Millennial Kingdom. If Ezekiel 38-39 happens during or after the Tribulation, then this passage makes no biblical or logical sense. Also, to equate Ezekiel 38-39 with the war at the end of Revelation would be to unnecessarily remove the Revelation reference from the chronology of the rest of the book. So I am with those who believe Ezekiel 38-39 happens before the Tribulation and possibly even before the Rapture, because of Ezekiel 39:9. Thoughts?
