• Passages covered: Ezekiel 35:14

Ezekiel 35:14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate.

The above Scripture was declared to Mount Seir (another name for Esau/Edom). I wonder when it will be when the whole earth rejoiceth and simultaneously God makes Esau a type of (unsaved mankind) desolate? In what way could it be said that the whole earth rejoices? And what could they possibly be rejoicing about.

Actually, I don't wonder about the answer to these things because we have all recently witnessed their fulfillment on the date of May 21, 2011. On that day, when God's judgment did not physically manifest itself (i.e. no world wide earthquake) the people of the world let out a tremendous sigh of relief and rejoiced that their world was still here.

And yet, at precisely the same time when the unsaved were greatly rejoicing---God brought to pass a spiritual judgment by shutting the door of heaven and making Esau (non elect) desolate. In shutting the door of heaven and ending His salvation program God made this world a spiritually desolate place for all mankind.
