Such ideas (as proclaimed in this passage of Prophecy) would be taken as pure fantasy, wildly impossible, not even realistic enough to qualify as utopian. Since this week’s haftarah asserts that all of those will happen, I wondered, then as now, what it means when even Orthodox Jews, who claim to believe that God speaks through the prophets, do not believe these prophecies will or can ever come true…
The Almighty enters into a third covenant during Moses’ lifetime as an affirmation of the truth that despite the backsliding of Israel, their covenant with their God who is always ready to accept their repentance remains eternally validated. The significance to this third Covenant and the manner in which it clearly differs from its predecessors – is its democratic element. Every single Israelite is summoned and included, the heads of the tribes… the little ones, wives, even the stranger who is in the camp, the hewer of wood and the drawer of water” (Deut. 29:9–10).
The special festive Succot Haftarot convey a great Message as part of the entire 7th Month Redemptive Feast metaphors:
– on the 1st day of Succoth, from Zech. 12 & 14 – the Gog Magog Final War of Wars and on the Shabbat of Succoth, from Ezek. 38 & 39 – Gog Magog War.

The prophet opens with a proclamation that God created a purposeful world. He then enjoins upon those whom He created to act as His advocates: “I the Lord, in My grace, have summoned you, and I have grasped you by the hand. I created you, and appointed you a covenant people (l’brit am), a light of nations (l’or goyim), opening eyes deprived of light, rescuing prisoners from confinement, from the dungeons those who sit in darkness.” (6-7)
