because of sin

Ezekiel 39

v23

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.

Ezekiel 39 concludes the judgment of Gog, talking about things like the incredible job it will be to bury them (v13). The idea is to show that the Lord is real. The reason His people were led into captivity before, was not because of a lack of the Lord defending His people. He does defend His people, and in extraordinary ways, like He defended them against Gog.

The reason the Lord would allow us to be destroyed by our enemies, is because of our sin. We should make sure we're on the Lord's good side.
