The scripture is very clear, Israel was in Captivity in Babylon 70 years, and God left none of them there in BabylonDoes it? It can say whatever a careless unbeliever in the meaning of words wants it to say. Let’s look at what it says.
Read verse 22 again. Would the reader consider today, March 9, 2021, to be “ forward” from the battle described here as you are presenting it to us? The house of Israel means the family of Israel, the physical seed of Abraham through Jacob. The 12 tribes of Jacob. Ask the next 25 Jews you meet if they know that the person Ezekiel is referencing here is the Lord their God because of this battle. The answer you get should go a long way to affirming your doctrine if it is true.
Going forward from that battle, why not ask some heathen about this battle. Ask the next 25 heathen you meet on the street if they know the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity and trespasses. Let’s just prove that God, if he did say these things is, uh, ...pulling our leg.
On another point, I am pretty sure that the battle you are referencing was with Judah, which is two tribes of Israel, and not the whole house. Ten of the tribes were still in dispersion in other parts of the world at that time, and get this, they still are today.
This is a “now” verse and he is speaking of the whole house of Israel, if we can believe words,.He is nor speaking of Judah only as in the days of the Babylonian captivity.
This is an after” verse and tells us God’s purpose was remedial and not penal. It was out of love for Israel.
This is a “then” verse indicating his purpose had been accomplished for the whole house of Israel. Now, being honest, being aware of the world around you and having all kinds of tools to research the conditions of Israel and the nations, do you think God is describing anything that has been experienced yet?
He said above, and you highlighted it, that he would gather them to their own land and leave none in the lands of the heathen. Let’s do a math study. What is the numerical equivalent of “none?” Is it 10, or 100, or a million? Are there any Jews in the land of the heathen today?
Is there anything that would even remotely indicate that Israel is in possession of the Spirit of God and is in intimate fellowship with God now today? Definitely the whole house of Israel is not in her land and the ones who are at the present time do not have the Spirit.
My conclusion of your comments. I think you are a poor reader and cannot follow logic and are hateful toward the words of God and you do not believe them and are not shy about saying so.
The wooden weapons described, just adds to the fact of this being (Historical)
Can you see Jews in Israel today or in the future, burning wooden weapons for 7 years?
Be Honest With The Facts Before Your Eyes, A (Historical) War Fought With Wooden Weapons, Simple
Ezekiel Was Among Those In The Captivity In Babylon.
1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,
9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God.
23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
25 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
