The entire last week of years occurs after “the people [Romans] of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary [second temple]” in the end/qets, meaning the end times. Further, Jesus was clear that the signs and events He outlined were told in a chronological order, utilizing the Greek word tot’eh meaning then, at that time, or when as in Matthew 24:16: “Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains”; this is used throughout Jesus’ end-time oration.
If one assembles passages and prophetic allegory from the book of Revelation and Daniel’s chapters 2, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 12 around Jesus’ chronological events and overarching signs, the fog begins to lift from the Revelation prophecy. One can then slide all other prophecies from both testaments into that template. Revelation and Daniel’s prophetic allegory intersects with and explicates the dual prophecies of Isaiah 13, 14, 22, 25, and 34, Jeremiah 50–51, and Ezekiel 26, 28, 29, 31, and 32 with respect to Babylon, Satan, Antichrist, antichrist-like figures, beast empires, and the Terrible Ones. Moreover, one distills from the dual prophecies important prehistorical context and defining allegory for end-time prophetic events and players, as well as fundamental Holy Covenant prophecies assigned to the epoch of the prophets. Through dual prophecies, one begins to grasp the supernatural symmetry embedded into prophecy throughout the Bible that “the thing that hath been, it is that which shall be. .. and there is no new thing under the sun.”
As such, the Ezekiel 32 dual prophecy is steeped in prehistory, describing events and figures past. It is a prophecy for Ezekiel’s era, and it provides prophetic details for the end-time resolution to the angelic rebellion and creation of giants. Ezekiel’s lament expands upon prophetic allegory deployed in Isaiah 13–14, and 22, Jeremiah 50–51, Ezekiel 28–29, Daniel 8, and other prophecies employing similar prophetic allegorical and prophetic markers assigned to important players and events past and future. Similar prophetic allegory and markers connect New Testament prophecy to Old Testament prophecy, even though the English translation comes from Greek and Hebrew respectively.
Pharaoh was the central figure in the Ezekiel 32 dual prophecy. Egypt was the first beast empire, followed by Assyria.
