| And the word of the LORD came|
unto me, saying,
| Son of man, set thy face against Gog,|
the land of Magog, the chief prince of
Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy
| And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD;|
Behold, I [am] against thee, O Gog,
the chief prince of Meshech and
| And I will turn thee back, and put|
hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring
thee forth, and all thine army, horses
and horsemen, all of them clothed with
all sorts [of armour, even] a great company
[with] bucklers and shields, all of them
| Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them;|
all of them with shield and helmet:
| Gomer, and all his bands; the house|
of Togarmah of the north quarters,
and all his bands: [and] many people
| Be thou prepared, and prepare for|
thyself, thou, and all thy company that
are assembled unto thee, and be thou
a guard unto them.
| After many days thou shalt be visited:|
in the latter years thou shalt come into
the land [that is] brought back from the
sword, [and is] gathered out of many
people, against the mountains of Israel,
which have been always waste: but it is
brought forth out of the nations, and they
shall dwell safely all of them.
| Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm,|
thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land,
thou, and all thy bands, and many people
| Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also|
come to pass, [that] at the same time shall
things come into thy mind, and thou shalt
think an evil thought:
| And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land|
of unwalled villages; I will go to them that
are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them
dwelling without walls, and having neither
bars nor gates,
| To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn|
thine hand upon the desolate places [that
are now] inhabited, and upon the people
[that are] gathered out of the nations, which
have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in
the midst of the land.
| Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants|
of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof,
shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a
spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take
a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take
away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
| Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say|
unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that
day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely,
shalt thou not know [it]?
| And thou shalt come from thy place out|
of the north parts, thou, and many people
with thee, all of them riding upon horses,
a great company, and a mighty
| And thou shalt come up against my|
people of Israel, as a cloud to cover
the land; it shall be in the latter days,
and I will bring thee against my land, that
the heathen may know me, when I shall be
sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
| Thus saith the Lord GOD; [Art] thou he|
of whom I have spoken in old time by my
servants the prophets of Israel, which
prophesied in those days [many] years
that I would bring thee against them?
| And it shall come to pass at the same time|
when Gog shall come against the land of
Israel, saith the Lord GOD, [that] my fury
shall come up in my face.
| For in my jealousy [and] in the fire of my|
wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there
shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
| So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls|
of the heaven, and the beasts of the field,
and all creeping things that creep upon the
earth, and all the men that [are] upon the
face of the earth, shall shake at my presence,
and the mountains shall be thrown down,
and the steep places shall fall, and every wall
shall fall to the ground.
| And I will call for a sword against him|
throughout all my mountains, saith
the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall
be against his brother.
| And I will plead against him with pestilence|
and with blood; and I will rain upon him,
and upon his bands, and upon the many
people that [are] with him, an overflowing
rain, and great hailstones, fire, and
| Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify|
myself; and I will be known in the eyes
of many nations, and they shall know that
I [am] the LORD.
Gog and Magog is Russia. The Prophet Ezekiel wrote this
concerning the "Latter Rain" after Israel was recreated for
the third time, following the Messiah's ascension .
This happened and was fulfilled in 1948,
nearly 60 years ago. The rest of the prophecy is
rapidly happening today.
There is controversy surrounding pre and post-tribulation
prophecy in Ez 38 and Revelation 20, which puts the
battle 1000 years after Christ returns and establishes
His Kingdom in Jerusalem.
It's very easy to get confused, but, I believe Ezekiel 38
refers to today, our present real time, and time to come.
Revelation 20 reiterates this message, but, places it
1000 years from our era, after Christ reigns in the
Millennium, and the nations of the Earth are given
one more chance to give peace a chance. They are
not all good sports, let's leave it at that.
(These are all my own thoughts, and beliefs,
and everyone is entitled to their own, but,
I will state what I see and how I interpret
Having no death for 1000 years will give us a
taste of immortality, but, we shouldn't get too
carried away. We are still in transition, and if
we don't measure up, our immortal flesh will
find itself alive in death, a living death, in the
place called Hades, where the forsaken have
chosen to live for eternity apart from Jesus
Christ, the King of Kings and LORD, being
the son of the Everlasting God.
We should rejoice that Putin and the modern
King of Persia have joined hands, even though
the world will turn against Israel for deploying
nuclear weapons, with the knowledge of a
confederacy of forces, especially between
Russia, Syria and Iran. Instead of being against
the evil-doers, the world will blame Israel.
Conservationists, or disciples of the green
man, Gore, et al, aka "False Prophet" will
be incensed at all the poisonous wastes.
They should have paid more attention to
what was happening, but, they'll lead the
Western enmity against Israel. Even Western
Jews will rant and rail against Israel.
The neighborhood bully, Israel, as Bobby
Dylan so prophetically termed, will be in
the full force of wrath from the world, but,
will be looking at the MESSIAH coming.
For many of them, they'll see Christ for
the first time, not as their adversary, but,
as their anointed KING.
Many Muslims will also see the light.
Ironically, the two non-Christian factions
of Orthodox Jews and fundamentalist
Islamists, will hold hands, for their
salvation will appear in the midst of
turmoil and death. It will be the dead
church of the false Christians who will
ironically be opposed to Christ's return.
The worldly Christians who have preached
prosperity and feathered their own nests
do not like to discuss this event, at least
not in regard to it happening in the next
few years, or even few months. They
are enjoying a carnal life, and things
will change soon.
Having no death is not the blessing
it seems, at least not for those who
rebel against God, and the LORD
Yeshua HaMaschiach. While men will
follow the most wretched cult leaders,
and pathetic dictators and theologians,
when God himself appoints His Son
to reign supreme, it will not appeal
to those whose Christianity is all about
prosperity and carnal lifestyles.
Yet, He who comes will heal the poisoned
waters, and turn the world back into the
Paradise He originally created for us
to dwell in. He will restore the righteous
laws, and abolish the foolishness and
abominations of mankind. He will bring
joy with him, but, not everyone wants
to live as brothers.
Those who want to be Masters of the Universe,
in their ivory castles, while they impose rules
of hardship for the workers and poor, will not
be pleased to be usurped by the Grand
Master of the Universe. They can no longer
pioneer their own private jets, while planning
for the hard-working impoverished poor to
have more and more hardships. What
hypocrites have designed for the world is
not what will become the fate of this world.
There will be a perfect social order under
Christ. Marx and Lenin didn't have the
right stuff, only Christ does. Only the Lord
can restore order, peace, and beauty to this
world. He will restore innocence. It says
in the Bible that a man of a hundred years
will still be like a child, meaning at 100,
he still has 900 years to go.
Adam and the first generation were built
for 1000 years of life. The last generation
will return to this paradigm, and then,
after the final rebellion of Gog and Magog,
written of in Revelation 20, the division
bells will result in the final harvest of
souls for the Kingdom of God, in
Heaven, and a NEW Heaven, as the
old world, and the old heaven will
roll up. It is pure transformation, as
seen in nature by a butterfly's miraculous
genesis and transition.
Anyone who scoffs and laughs at the
Bible and prophecy needs to still pay
attention to Gog and Magog, joining
with Persia, and all the Israel-haters,
planning to destroy Jerusalem.
This is Armageddon, and I feel fine!
Come soon Lord Jesus. We are ready
to jump up and meet you! We moan
waiting for your return. How long,
how much longer do we need to
wait, observing atrocities all over
this planet, while the media lauds
the obscene pornographic priestesses,
false prophets, and emissaries of
the devil? Come back and deliver
us from evil.
Restore order in the world you created,
Lord, and bring back the light in this
polluted, foul, and diseased planet.
We are wading through muck and
mud, enduring the unbearable reign
of the most wicked people who ever
flaunted their wealth over the masses.
This is unprecedented and exceeds
the most corrupt ancient empires.
We rejoice at the sound of your
buglers. We rejoice at each step
closer to your return!
In the NAME of the LORD: Y'hashua
HaMaschiach, Barak Hashem Adonai.
