Gog’s Return

 

gog

How many times does he show up, and who is he?

I have heard many discussions about Gog and Magog, and how it might apply to the Battle of Armageddon.

Is it the same war, or different?

And can we narrow down who Gog might be today?

How Gog is mentioned in prophecy.

Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, (of) the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

Gog is from Magog, a land named after a descendent of Japeth.

Gen 10:2 ¶ The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

Gen 10:3   And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

Gen 10:4   And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

Gen 10:5   By these were the isles (coastlands, lands) of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations

Here is a map of where Japheth’s descendents settled:

Notice that Japheth is the land of the north mentioned in prophecy, the area that attacks Israel in the end times.

Notice that modern Turkey and Iran (area east of Tigris River) are included in the “north” region.

Here is another map of Japheth:

What hint does the bible give as to who Gog, is from this north area?

1. he is a Turk, since he is from Meshech and Tubal, in the land of Magog, which is in modern Turkey. That is a start, but that is not all there is about him.

Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

2. he dies in a war against Israel

Eze 39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the [noses] of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call [it] The valley of Hamongog.

3. He comes back after 1000 years

Rev 20:7 ¶ And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison /

Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom [is] as the sand of the sea. //

Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city (Jerusalem): and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. //

4. Gog was the prince of Magog 1000 years earlier. If he is still around 1000 years later, then he is Satan himself.

Confirmation by Jesus:

Rev 2:12 ¶ And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

Rev 2:13   I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, [even] where Satan’s seat [is]: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas [was] my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

Pergamos is the same location on the map as Magog:

Seat of Satan – Pergamous in Turkey

clip_image014

 

The Great Altar of Pergamon, a massive stone podium about one hundred feet long and thirty-five feet high, was originally built in the 2nd century BC in the Ancient Greek city of Pergamon (modern day Bergama in Turkey) in north-western Anatolia, 25.74 kilometers (16 miles) from the Aegean Sea.

It has long been assumed that the magnificently- scaled and opulently decorated open-air altar (it is not a temple) was dedicated to Zeus.


You see, that is why in Revelation chapter 2 Jesus said that Satan’s throne was there. It was this gigantic altar of Zeus that He likely was referring to.

The Altar was removed from the Ancient Greek city of Perg­amon (now Bergama, in modern-day Turkey) and its subsequent placement in Berlin had been a precursor to both of the 20th century’s world wars – and that its sinister influence will soon bring about the next.

At 46m long and 11m high, its stone mass reduces the spectator to insect-like obscurity.

While the altar has been transferred to Berlin, Germany, the official seat is in Turkey.

In 1998 and again in 2001 the Turkish Minister of Culture, Istemihan Talay, demanded the return of the altar and other artifacts. The altar has not been returned.

It is interesting that Gomer (Germany), implying his descendents, will accompany Gog from Magog (Turkey).

Eze 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: [and] many people with thee [Gog].

Magog and the Ottoman Empire

Contributed by Edda

The Revived Ottoman Empire? – Article by Jack Kelley – www.gracethrufaith.com

Notice the Ottoman Empire map, with Magog at its center.

clip_image012

History of the Ottomans

The Ottoman Empire existed from 1299 until 1922. It was in many respects the Islamic successor to the Eastern leg of the Roman Empire and like the Romans had its headquarters in Constantinople (Istanbul).

The Ottoman Empire was defeated in World War 1 after aligning with Germany.

Its dissolution at the end of the war led to the formation of 40 new nations in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Northern Africa, many of them on land once claimed by the Romans.


Suleiman The Magnificent

The Empire’s greatest days occurred under the rule of Suleiman the Magnificent who reigned from 1520-1566.


Suleiman was a powerful conqueror for Islam. His armies pushed the boundaries of the Empire nearly to Vienna and his powerful navies controlled the Mediterranean.

Suleiman’s father had wrested control of what is now Israel from Egypt in 1517 and Suleiman fell in love with Jerusalem, ordering its walls rebuilt in 1535.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Turkey is the surviving remnant of the Ottoman Empire. Following their defeat in WW1 the Empire was divided up by the victorious Western powers. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk had been a high ranking Ottoman officer and led the effort to found the Republic of Turkey.

He set about to make it a secular nation in the style of western democracies. While endorsing Islam, he limited it to the status of a religion instead of allowing it to be the political force it had been.

He saw to the suspension of the Ottoman Caliphate/successor of Mohammed and Sultanate/Ruler of Mohamedan countries, clearing the way for the newly formed National Parliament to assume ultimate power. Among the many changes he enforced were the institution of a new language and alphabet, the adoption of western style of dress and mandatory 2nd names for men, and the granting of full political rights to women.

From that day to this, Turkey has been viewed as a western nation. With membership in NATO and more than a dozen military and commercial treaties with Israel, Turkey has been an important western ally in the Middle East.

In fact, many students of prophecy have seen Turkey’s alignment with the west as a major obstacle to an early fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Lately there’s been a major shift in Turkish politics in what could be a dramatic step toward the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38.

After stalling for years, the EU has put Turkey’s application for membership on the back burner and as of now a majority of EU ministers oppose Turkey’s admission to the Union.

Perhaps as a result of this Turkey has begun to look to the East, and current Prime Minister Erdogan is fast becoming a regional Muslim leader by criticizing Israel—particularly after the Gaza war. His clout is spreading from the streets of Gaza to Beirut, Damascus, and Cairo—the traditional strongholds of Arab nationalism.

The Turkish military has also been a powerful force in maintaining the country’s western leaning secular nature.

In the past it has unilaterally dissolved national governments for becoming too religious, and has outlawed several religiously oriented political parties.

But according to the Associated Press, Turkish police arrested 52 current and former military commanders last week for their part in “allegedly planning to blow up mosques in order to trigger a military takeover and overthrow the Islamic-oriented government” in 2003. It appears the balance of power has shifted.

Having played a major role in healing the rift between Saudi Arabia and Syria, and forming strategic alliances with Russia, Syria, and Iran, he’s gaining regional popularity as well.

He single handedly brought Syria out of Arab isolation, helped facilitate the long delayed formation of the new Lebanese government, and has brokered trade agreements with Russia that exceeded $38 billion in 2008 and have a five year target of $100 billion annually.

Recently Erdogan offered to come to Iran’s assistance should there be any attempt to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities.


He’s become convinced that instead of relying on outside powers to bring peace to the Middle East the Ottoman Empire should be re-born to take the lead.

He’s recently been quoted as saying, “Turkey’s goal is to live in peace with all countries and restore the might of the Ottoman Empire.”

There are opposing views as to whether the Gog war is the same as Armadeggon.

Similarities between Gog-Magog and Armageddon

Credit: Alan Brooks, END TIME SECRETS REVEALED

* Both Gog and Antichrist come at a time of peace and security (Dan 11:24, Ezekiel 38:12-13)

* Both Gog and Antichrist are kings that come from the North (Dan 11:40-42, Joel 2:19-20; Ezekiel 38:14-16; Ezekiel 39:1-3)

* Both Gog and Antichrist have the same coalition of nations (Dan 11:43, Zech 14:14, Joel 3:11-12; Ezekiel 38:5-6)

* Both Gog and Antichrist take spoil, loot and plunder (Isa 10:5-7, Dan 11:24; Ezekiel 38:10-13)

* Both Gog and Antichrist are temporary leaders that are destroyed at the end of the battle (Ezekiel 39:11; Daniel 7:11)

* In both the Gog/Magog and Armageddon battles, the armies are confused and attack each other (Ezekiel 38:21-22; Zech 14:12-13)

* Both Gog/Magog and Armageddon end with a great earthquake (Ezekiel 38:19-20; Rev 16:18-20)

* Both Gog/Magog and Armageddon experience great hailstones (Rev 16:16-21, Ezekiel 38:22)

* Both Gog/Magog and Armageddon are followed by “The Feast Of God” (Ezekiel 39:17-20; Rev 19:17)

* At the end of both battles Christ is physically present in Israel (Ezekiel 39:7, Zech 12:9-10)

* After both battles God’s name will no longer be profaned (Ezekiel 39:22, Ezekiel 39:7-8, Zechariah 12:9-10, Ezekiel 38:23)

* After both battles God pours out His Spirit upon Israel (Ezekiel 39:29; Zechariah 12:10)

* After both battles weapons of war are destroyed (Ezekiel 39:9; Isaiah 2:4)

* After both battles God declares “It is done” (Ezekiel 39:8; Revelation 16:17)

Armageddon itself is more of a focused or zoomed-in view of how the Gog-Magog battle ends with the return of Christ.

First part of the war is an invasion if Israel at peace….2nd part is Armageddon…..My point is that Israel will not be at peace near Armageddon, for the antichrist will have invaded her 3 1/2 years before…

So, we are left with 2 possibilities:

1-  The Antichrist (A/C) invades and rules for 3 1/2 years, and then makes Israel peaceful for Gog to invade (not likely)

2- Alan’s scenario: The A/C is Gog who invades an Israel at peace, and then he rules for 3 1/2 years from Israel, then Armageddon takes place

Gog War as being different from Armageddon

1. According to Ezekiel, Gog is defeated as soon as it tries to invade across the northern mountain ranges (most likely Golan Heights).

Eze 38:8   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.

So, I do not see how Gog can enter, remain in Israel for 3 ½ years without a problem, and then initiate the abomination, causing chaos for the next 3 ½ years, ending in a second battle.

2. Also, Gog is buried “by the sea” which is the sea of Galilee (Kinneret). The sea is just west of the Golan Heights.

This is 60 miles from Jerusalem, where the Battle of Armageddon takes place. So Gog never makes it to Jerusalem.

Eze 39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the [noses] of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call [it] The valley of Hamongog.

*** The Kinneret is situated deep in the Jordan Great Rift Valley, the valley caused by the separation of the African and Arabian Plates. Consequently the area is subject to earthquakes and, in the past, volcanic activity. I think God will use this to his advantage.

The Jewish view of 2 Gog wars

Common Jewish interpretation of Ezekiel 38 as one war, and Ezekiel 39 as a second war is intriguing.

1. Gog enters with Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, and is destroyed in or near the mountains.

Eze 38:21   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.

2. There is a second attack, later, after being turned back / destroyed,  and only a sixth part remains of the original attacking force. Gog is still Gog, and so crosses the mountains a second time.

Eze 39:2   And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

This time Gog becomes bird food, and Magog is burned up by God, so there is no place to return to. The remaining invaders die on the mountains of Israel, just like the first time.

Eze 39:17 ¶ And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

It takes 7 years to burn all the weapons

Eze 39:9 ¶ And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:

It takes 7 months to bury the dead.

Eze 39:12   And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.

So, how do these 2 Gog wars relate to Armageddon now?

clip_image018

Adding up the Gog wars – there appears to be at least 2 of them

There are certain possibilities:

1. Gog as a battle before Armageddon. Then a second Gog war after the Millenium.

2. Gog as Armageddon. Then a second Gog war after the Millenium.

3. Gog as a battle before Armageddon. Armageddon as a separate event. Then a second Gog war after the Millenium.

  1. […] here for […]

    • what an excellent summary. I have already come to the conclusion that Gog is satan and the battle described here is the final battle …after years of other people’s studies which could never line up the 7 years of weapons burning and the 7 months of nuclear contamination! I so appreciate all the maps and the parallel scriptures you are using. I would like to add a little to your study, if I may! Ezekiel Chap 35 is clearly about the divison of the land and the Palestinian claim to both lands to take the whole land of Israel. Being taken up with the talk of the talkers I think refers to the UN, the EU, the US and Russia, the quartet, which I believe are mentioned in Zechariah as the 4 horns or the 4 smiths…..”the quartet” if you please. The 4 horses of Zechariah are clearly the 4 horses of the Apocalypse, and Israel is not living is safety…..she is living securely,it is a false security of a hudna peace treaty. The blasphemy against the LORD is the call ALLAHU AKBAR from the Temple Mt every Friday night, which blasphemes the NAME of GOD who is YEHOVAH, the I AM and the blessing to all men and not Allah, the curse!

      • I believe that all the neighbors, ie. the Palestinian people are greatly loved by Yehovah GOD. When Israel is living in peace in the land that Yehovah gave to the Jews.. all the neighbors and nations around them will also be blessed.

      • hi Cathy,

        It does seem like a confirmation that Ezech 35 discusses division of the land before it mentions the invasion in Ezech 38. It is almost like it is giving a chronology to the end time events.

    • I only have a little time but I would like to add another piece….the Hebrew meaning of the the word GOG according putting the spiritual meaning of each letter in place. G is gimel and means proud, exalted one….but doubled GOG it means the MOST HIGH, the MOST PROUD one….who is satan…it also means a mountain…..which is a kingdom….who wants to control the highest kingdom…..satan! b e blessed !

  2. Revelation 13-2..SATAN’S SEAT…And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his SEAT, and great authority.

    Isaiah 14-13…SATAN’S THRONE/SEAT.. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my THRONE above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

    REVELATION 16 -12………and the water thereof was dried up, that the WAY of the kings of the east might be prepared.
    THE WAY of the kings of the east is ISLAM…

    THE BIBLE IS VERY SIMPLE AND NOT COMPLICATED…AND IS UNDERSTOOD THUS..

  3. This treatise was very well done and according to the Spirit. There are a lot of endtime teaching, but its not of the spirit. This I believe is what the Holy Spirit is showing us. According to this, my position of the Man of Sin being an Islamic leader of the Eastern part of the Roman Empire, comes in league with the Western part of the Roman Empire ( The Papacy). The two legs of Iron (Papacy) and clay Earth- Islam) Remember the Islamic treatise for world domination is the ultimate destruction of all societies not in line with this New World Order view, mainly the Great Satan (United States). As you all know on April 13 of this year 2010, Debka-file, a prominent international news organization in which all other major news organizations get their information (CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CBN, etc). It has been reported prior to the Nuclear Summit on terrioism and Nuclear weapons, that Barak Obama was notified by Iran that any attack by Isreal or the United States on Iran would result in multiple detonation of Nuclear bombs already planted in American cities. Our President is just a little to late on his crusade, for these weapons of God’s indignation against this nation have been ready. I say that the Lord can and will relent from letting this happen only if America will experience a nation wide repentence in proportionate to the Repentance that took place in Nineveh under the preaching of Jonah the Prophet. Do not under estimate this Iranian threat. (God has stirred up the Medes and the persians (Make the arrows bright, Gather the shields, The Lord has raised up the (Spirit)of the Kings of the Medes, for His plan is against Babylon to destroy it, because it is the vengeance of the Lord, The vengeance for His temple Jerimiah 51:11) If these demonically inspired leaders of this Ideology under the guise of Islamic rule succeed, and I believe they will according to the scripture, the fear of this Gog and Magog Spirit in the person of the Anti-christ and the false prophet will permeate the world, for who soever can bring down or a least severely punish the United States, the worlds only superpower would strike fear all over the world, then they will say “Who is able to wage war against the Beast.” In order for the Gog and Magog war to produce the divine results that Ezekiel 38-39 speak of, Isreal’s only ally, The United States would have to be subdued, if inoperable altogether. (Read George Washington’s vision) The Nations that the Demonic Principality of Gog and Magog are mostly if not altogether influenced are Islamic nations. Look again at the map presented earlier. Iran and other Islamic nations don’t really want to radiate all of Isreal thus destroying all the Muslum holy sites, though chemical and biological weapons would be employed there but Islamic nuclear weapons are being produced to use on American cities and military installations to prevent our retalitory response to the Gog and Magog invasion, in which Our God will fight agauinst those nations as He did in times of old (Read Zechariah chapter 12, and chapter 14:12-15) We are in that hour. Please all who read this REPENT, and turn from our wicked ways now, there will be no chance later. Don’t test the Spirit of the Lord here, you will Eternally reap what you have sown. The inhabitants of Hell plead with earths swarmming millions to take Christ’s pardon for your sins. There is no way out of Hell. Heavens messengers continually plead with you but still millions refuse until they at last find that they open their eyes being in torments forever and ever with the memory always haunting you that you had the opportunity to avoid that place. For every willing heart Heaven has a mansion prepared. God really loves you.

  4. dear marianne ,
    you mixed the facts with each other
    there is gog and magog ,and armaggdon , they are separated
    u mixed the prophecies
    some of them talking about imam mahdi , and i know them clearly
    and some talks about armaggdon , but u made all in one
    GOG MAGOG !!
    THERE IS 2 WARS
    SOME PEOPLE THINKS gog and magog are creatures from outside earth
    as those whom mentioned in sumeria civilization , i’m not sure
    this could be the fact and could be not
    but the fact , don’t mix armagddon with gog and magog

    best wishes for u marianne , even the diffrence between us in thinking
    i respect u

    • hi ahmad

      Actually you and I agree.

      If you look again at the post, it presents different views of Gog.

      Some people think Gog is Armageddon. Others think it is a separate battle.

      I think Gog is different from Armageddon, and there are 2 wars also. One seems to occur before Armageddon. The other one appears to occur 1000 years later.

      • i need to ask you some thing
        the rev sais when the 1000 years expire
        but when the 1000 years starts ??
        from the battle or from geremiah him self ??
        in my shite islamic view , which i’m seeing by my eyes
        armaggdon will happen and will defeat israel after that the antichrist will be defeated by jesus
        then gog and magog will come
        whom i think in my based understanding that magog are from outside the earth
        and i think they are the ppl mentioned in sumerua civilization
        regards

        • hi ahmad,

          According to the bible, the 1000 years of peace occur after the battle of Armageddon.

          Then there is a Gog battle after the 1000 years are over. Gog is finally defeated forever.

          • mm , i don’t know what to say
            but i’m confused from two things
            one of them is jesus will back in year 2018 – 2020
            so how he will defeat gog after 1000 year
            will this mean that he will stay more than 1000 year ????

            • More than Gog/ Magog shows up at the Battle of Armageddon. All nations collect there and are defeated by Jesus.

              But 1/6 of Gog remains, and for 1000 years, this population grows. Maybe the 1/6 that remain are women and children, and some men.

              Then at the end of 1000 years, Gog tries again to fight against God. This is when Gog is destroyed forever.

            • Thank you for your comment here. It is no where to be found that the war Of Gog and Magog is the beginning of the so-called 7 year tribulation period, if you conclude that our Lord will come back in 2018 or 2020. The scriptures are silent on the timing of this massive Russo-Islamic invasion, and so must we. End-time teachers by pulling texts of scripture out of context have built a teaching concerning this, and the possible timing of these events based on their views. They base the scriptures around their belief systems, instead of rightly dividing the word of God which we are exhorted to do. We need to be as noble as the Berians who searched the scriptures fervently to see if the things the Apostle Paul was saying concerning Salvation by grace and the coming judgement were correct.See Acts 17:10-11. The one thing we know of is that it is happening NOW. Some of these teachers even had the rapture happening before this or at the time of this, when the Lord tells us exactly when the timing of this event and the season. Please read Matthew 24:29-31. Remember God did not deliver the Hebrew children from the firey furnice, He delivered them through it. He also will with us should Nuclear weapons start going off. He will divinely protect us as He did the Hebrews in the Land of Goshan in Egypt should it come to this. We are going to be needed when all hell breaks loose, to win thousands and thousands to Christ, because men’s hearts will fail them for fear, and all heaven will be shaken. Yes it will be the fear of the Lord, for everyone will be challenged to prepare to meet their God, for destruction will be everywhere, because it will be swallowed up in life. You will be empowered with the Holy Ghost with signs and wonders following, that the Heavens and earth will bow down to your command for you will be strong and do exploits for God while all this darkness is happening. See Isaiah 60:1-2

        • I believe a thousand years will start after Gog and Magog and Armageddon wars are fulfilled/completed.

    • Good rebuttal, but understand this is a major Spirit. The Gog and Magog are the Spiritual wickedness in High places that Jesus mentions would be eliminated if we would bind the lessor spirits on earth that are under their command. (Matt 18:18) There may be two wars but the same spirit. Ezekiel 28:1 has the prophet prophesying to the prince of Tyrus. Verse two says that he is a man, but in the 12th verse of Ezekiel the Prophet is commanded to prophesy or take a lamentation to the KING of Tyrus. This is a major Spirit dwelling in the Heavenly places, and as you know it is speaking of Satan Himself, as you read on. The Gog and Magog are the same demonic Spirits dwelling in the Heavenly Spheres known as the second Heavens, but instituting two wars. They are bound with Satan in the abyss for 1000 years, then let loosed for a short time. Gog and Magog are not wars, but Spirits unleashed to wage battle against, first Jerusalem Ezekiel 38-39, and then again with the people of God representing the New Jerusalem. The battle of Armageddon is the last battle of the war of Gog and Magog for Jerusalem. To tell you all the truth, the war of Gog and Magog or World War III commenced in 9/11. I will quote the King of Jordon in a statement He said in the United Nations just days after 9/11. “The attack on a major or only superpower by Islamic extremist which are networked all over the world, and have the same goal has started World War III, or as you Christians call it the beginnings of the Gog and Magog Invasion spoken in the Prophet Ezekiel, and which will culminate at the battle of Armegeddon. 9/11 was the first battle of many in the war on terrorism, and Meggedo in the Valley of Jehosophat is the last battle” (King Abdulla of Jordon) This man as far as I know was not a Christian when He made this statement, and yet even He can see plainly that the scriptures come alive in our times, while Christians battle over theology and won’t come into unity as Christ desired, in order to protect their views or positions, not remembering the text which states, ” Let God be true and every man a Liar. Everything the scripture says and the way it says, as well as the Spirits, nations and individuals involved is transpiring before our eyes, as Jesus said “He that has an ear, hear what the spirit is saying. Remember while we all are trying to convince each other of our so called end-times positions, Satan like a roaring lion is roaming the earth devouring as many as he can. A reminder be cause of the nearness of Christ’s coming and the technology employed in war and destruction, people are falling into Hell at a much quicker rate than in any time in human history. Let us all focus on saving as many in the name of Jesus Christ for which He paid an expensive price for. God richly bless you all,

  5. The Tribe of the Serpent: DAN

  6. Hi Marianne,

    Why researchers always ignore one very significant fact…that Ezekiel never mentions “Gog AND Magog”, but rather “Gog, from the land of Magog” ???

    The answer is found in Rabbinic oral tradition, adapted by John in Book of Revelation, and the meaning is that “GOG-U-MAGOG” in Hebrew gives us numerical value of 70 after 70 heathen nations of the world, and in broad sense represents all impure forces, that is everything apart from physical and spiritual Israel, they are sons of darkness mentioned in the dead sea scrolls, it is eternal battle, apart from the one specific war described by Ezekiel…after Gog and his forces are defeated in Israel, the battle is not finished, immediately after Jews build the Temple and begin to burn up weapons for 7 years, and we know that AC comes in the Third Temple and sets mute abomination there, AFTER battle of Gog and Magog…Prophet Zechariah mentions that even after redemption there will be nations rebelling by not coming to celebrate Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem, these nations will still exist during 1,000 reign of Christ and once again rebel at the end…

  7. I think that modern analogy of Pergamos, Seat of Satan, is Tel-Aviv, acc. to Prophecy about Dan being Serpent on the path (watch above video) – Tel-Aviv is situated in the portion of Dan and is its capital, as one witch revealed to me that all the modern architecture in Tel-Aviv is dedicated to Satan…

  8. I think Gog is a war we can all agree on. Islamic countries get together and try to wipe Israel off the map. They say they want to do it and they are going to do it as soon as they are ready – probably after they obtain nuclear weapons. They keep saying it and the world believes it and is trying to prevent it with conferences, treaties and such.
    Waste of time. Of course it will happen. We all know it, we’re just waiting for it.
    The only surprise will be how it ends. God will show himself after all these years and after that I don’t think anyone will dare mess with Israel again.
    The war of Armageddon will happen just before Christ returns and will involve Russia and China among others. Definitely not Islamic or even religious tones to that war. Muslims will no longer be a factor at that point.
    Gog will most likely pre-date the tribulation and may even issue in the peace treaty of the antichrist. And based on the progress in Iran’s nuclear program and its current attitude, I don’t think its far away.
    We shall see.

  9. Hi Marianne,
    my first thought of the photo on the main page was that it looks like a dog with a bird in its mouth.

  10. One has to remember 1John2:18 said their are many antichrists. That why their can be so many pointed out to be the antichrist. Gog is defeated and another will raise up. Taking a greater army for Armageddon.

  11. Just trying to take in much of this post. Very sobering thoughts, especially the one about how there are nuclear weapons already planted in large cities in the US. Confirms my urging from the Spirit to leave the large city I live in, although, I do not fear, God is with me. I will do as He urges.
    One other thought on this particular comment above: “*** The Kinneret is situated deep in the Jordan Great Rift Valley, the valley caused by the separation of the African and Arabian Plates. Consequently the area is subject to earthquakes and, in the past, volcanic activity. I think God will use this to his advantage.”
    Marianne, I have an old paperback entitled, The Key of the Bottomless Pit, by Tom McElmurry, a certified meteorologist, Bogard Press, 4605 N. State Line Avenue, Texarkana, AR-TX 75503, Copyright 1987, ISBN 0-89211-199-2. In it he explains how the Revelation of Jesus Christ and Matthew 24 point to geologic events to happen in the future in Jerusalem that were prepared long ago by God. The Tribulation period will involve the shifting of tectonic plates and a division of the Mount of Olives. He includes extensive commentary as well as maps and sketches.
    This post reminds me to ask anyone out there who chooses, please repent of your sins (living a life apart from God) and pray today to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. When you do this, the Holy Spirit will take up residence in your heart and will teach you many things.
    Praise God that He knows everything and has the best interest of those who choose to place their faith in Him near to His heart and therefore there is nothing to fear.
    Lord, we love you and we praise you.

    • HI Pat,

      So many doubt the bible, yet it has made predictions that have come true over and over.

      How would ancient Hebrews know about the Syrian African rift? Isaiah also predicts a global disaster, with all land masses moving out of their places. How did he know about tectonic plates?

      I share your hope that people’s eyes are opened, and they repent, while there is still time.

  12. Wow, a lot of research you’ve done here. The maps are very interesting. I’ve read a lot about who/what Gog is but I cannot wrap my mind around so much of what others have written.

    I see Kittim on the map, why is that familiar to me? I can’t place what I may have read about it.

    • hi Debbie

      off the top of my head, I recall Solomon used lumber and materials from Kittim to build the temple. Also, the antichrist will be “bothered” by news of a fleet coming against him, once he enters the holy land to destroy it.

  13. So, Ezekiel’s scenario of chapter 38-39 must be an event that comes after a fatal blow is struck against the United States, greatly diminishing the position of the US in the world. The fall of the US is likely a sequence of events relative to Bible prophecy in conjunction with the sudden disappearance of Christians from the world stage. (Rapture) It may well revolve around a nuclear, chemical or biological nightmare perpetrated by international terrorists. In any event, the rapture event itself would unquestionably render the US as an absolute dysfunctional state, with total chaos ensuing in the wake of its sudden demise.

    This scenario paints a bad picture for America, but I think it is well within the scope of likelihood, both from a current-events perspective, and also from a perspective rooted in Bible prophecy. In any event, something of world significance must happen that removes any obstacles that would hinder Russia from making its calculated move to lead a coalition of nations, including Iran against Israel.

    • wondering if the loss of so much oil in the gulf would qualify as “a fatal blow struck against the United States”

  14. God has damned the united states for killing muslims… 😦

    • Jennifer

      Sorry, but that has to be the most stupid thing you could say. Muslims riots and commit violence all over the world, even in their own countries. If you are a terrorist sympathizer, I hope you get over your blindness and wake up.

      When God damns the USA, it will be because it abandoned Israel, and supported the Muslims in their schemes to destroy it.

    • Interesting Jennifer. I thought God abandoned the US because of her immorality and depravity, and her love of things rather than God, and for murdering 54 million babies since Roe vs Wade. And yes, for abandoning Israel. God curses those who curse Israel, the “apple of God’s eye.” Did you not hear about the 3000+ Americans that were murdering by Muslims in the World Trade Centers? Or the rockets that continually bombard Israel? Even God said of Esau (Arabs/Muslims), that he would be a wild ass of a man and his hand will be against his brothers (Jews/Israelites).
      Read your Bible, and read true history (not revisionist history). Wake up! Islam is taking over the world!

  15. gog really never left

    • Everyone has had their finger in the pie so to speak Marianne. Israel is most certainly at the heart of what has gone on in the world for so long. right up to today. We lose sight of so much without history in our studies I see.

      This is an incredible map and thank you for putting it in here. Just got round to checking it out. The most recent submissions are so short and are gone so fast …glad I caught this one.

  16. Gog commentary on Now the End Begins

    http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/pages/israel/world_war_3_ezekiel_38.htm

  17. At the time of Ham, and his canaanite wife Hannah (blood line of Cain to this side of the flood) and Shem and Japheth the world was one continent and one ocean (Genesis). God divided the lands during the seventh generation from Ham. The east coast of the USA was where the Mediterranean sea is now and is Magog. The capitol building is the house of Baal (note the huge dome or ball),and is where Satan dwells now. Ezekiel 38 and 39 begins with Russia, and a coalition of Islamic nations preparing to invade Israel. The false christ (counterfeit) who will be the president of US will come to the rescue of Israel and will falsely be considered their savior. Satan who is the false christ’s adopted father through history will be with him as well as the false prophet. This will occur during the first 3 1/2 years of the week of Jacob’s trouble. At the mid point the false christ will cause all who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads to worship him, or be persecuted. Ever since the sons of God (sons of Seth) started breeding with the daughters of Cain (daughters of man specifically Cain’s son Enoch second generation from Adam) their children have included the fallen angels who have been born into this world in the flesh of men so they have a chance to repent and be saved under grace. This includes satan (lucifer himself) because God is merciful. In these last days in these last generations. Satan is now in this world in the flesh of a man incarnate. The false christ who is Enoch second generation from Adam has been reincarnated and is back again in the flesh of a man. Satan’s chief fallen angel Baalzebub also called Beezlebub (false prophet) is also in the world now born in the flesh of a man. This is the evil trio. They will be killed by The Lord God of Israel Jesus Christ at the battle of Harmen geddon. The false christ and false prophet will go directly into the lake of fire and be blotted out. Satan will be sent to Sheol Gods prison for 1000 years before he is released to deceive the nations one last time. The evil circle of life is this. Satan used Cain to adopt his son Enoch so that satan would be born into the world as a man through the blood line of Enoch son of Cain. Satan is recently retired senator Joseph Lieberman. The false christ is Senator Johnny Sydney McCain. The false prophet is Benjamin Netanyahoo. Now that you have this information what you choose to do with it is entirely up to you. Read the Holy Bible (God’s complete library) obey (keep) God’s commandments in your heart, and he will give you the hidden manna (understanding of his word).

  18. […] Gog’s Return […]

  19. Christ returns, Israel returns in its entirety to the land, peace ensues during a 1000 year reign on earth by Christ and his saints. After a few years of peace, Gog and Magog invade and are instantly destroyed.
    At the end of the 1000 years they try one more time.
