PROPHESIED GOG OF MAGOG WAR IN EZEKIEL 38 & 39

The Bible is amazing, unlike any other book it is has proved it is God breathed by fulfilled prophecy. At least 300 prophecies of Jesus first coming were shown to be true, Isaiah 53 is a standout. Do you know there are far more prophecies about Jesus second coming than there were about His first coming? Moreover, if you have been following my blog, you realise we are closing in fast on the “last days” before Jesus returns.

Israel re-established as a nation in 1948 (70 years ago now) was a very significant sign, mentioned by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse. Apostasy in the church is another significant sign. False prophets is another. The current Pope and the Catholic church believe that there are other ways to God than Jesus. This is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and a sure “end times” sign. Also, whoever would have believed much of the church would accept gay marriage and homosexual and transgender pastors?

In my last post, I presented evidence for Iran being the ram in Daniel 8 and mentioned the likelihood of Turkey (Magog and a revived Ottoman Empire) being the goat that takes out the ram.

What is unfolding now in the Middle East has been foretold. In this video by Joel Richardson, he speaks of Iran’s invasion of the Middle East outlined in Daniel 8. but he focuses mainly on events in Ezekiel 38 and 39 which talks of the later Gog of Magog war.

Joel does a great job of showing that Gog is one of the names of the Antichrist and Magog is his country, Turkey. Gog is the leader of a Muslim coalition. The primary peoples and tribes (regions) are listed: Meshech, Put, Gomer, Tubal, Persia, Togarmah (all of these are in Turkey) plus other nations, all of them Muslim.

Turkey (Sunni) is using Isis against Assad and Kurds.  Iran (Shiite) is using Assad , Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza in its efforts to control the region. Russia is siding with Iran. USA is trying to oppose Assad so Russia and USA are in conflict.

 

MORE ON THE GOG/MAGOG WAR FROM JOEL

What we see unfolding in the Middle East is a lead up to the “end times” wars prophesied in the Bible.

Listen to Joel talk about what is unfolding now  – conflict between Iran (Shia) and its neighbours as it attempts to exert its dominance on these Muslim nations. This is already happening with Iran troops in Syria and Iraq and its proxies, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

What follows in Daniel 8:5-8 is the prophesied Goat with a single horn (Turkey) trampling the ram (Iran). This is Turkey’s (Sunni) response to re-establish a revised Ottoman Empire.

These all proceed the final Gog/Magog war.

Gabriel told Daniel three times “for the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.” I believe we are living in the time of the end when we are seeing these prophesied events unfold. We are fast approaching the final week (shabua) of the Seventy weeks prophesied in Daniel 9:24-27.
