The “man” Jacob met was an angel (Hos. 12:4). Something must have happened to make Jacob think this personage was a messenger of God. Since God did use human prophets to deliver messages, Jacob did not realize he was speaking to a materialized angel until later. The conversation must have been so inspiring that Jacob did not want the messenger to depart without giving a blessing. Hence Jacob began to wrestle with him for the blessing.

Just as the Israelites back there were under God’s protection, so when we consecrate, we are under the shadow of the Almighty. We go under the cherubim curtain and enter the Holy of the Tabernacle under His protection. This is the common experience of all true Christians who dedicate themselves to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. In addition, the rock Moses smote, out of which came water, represented Christ, and that Rock was a moving Rock. The Israelites “drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them,” keeping them under God’s care. In other words, what happened literally to the children of Israel back in Moses’ day has a spiritual counterpart with God’s people during the Gospel Age.

At the height of Jacob’s Trouble, at the moment of their direst extremity, when they have drunk the cup of woe to its dregs, God will say to the Holy Remnant: “No more will you have this experience.” God will remove the cup forever and turn the destruction against Gog (the Assyrian, the hammer or battle-ax), as shown when the gallows Haman designed for Mordecai were used on himself. And so the “gallows” that Gog and Magog plan to use to exterminate the Jew will boomerang.
Verse 7 is addressed to the nation of Israel. When will their God reign? When Israel is delivered from Gog. At that time the nation will immediately know God is reigning, and they will know Him from that day forward. In other words, there is a specific date in history in which the nation will be converted and know that the God of Israel has delivered them. “So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward” (Ezek. 39:22). How blessed are the feet of God that will make this announcement: “Behold, thy God reigneth!”
