Ezekiel's War: Who Is Gog? Who Is MaGog?

Israel's security fence/wall  Israel says it needs the barrier — fences, trenches and walls that could run for up to 440 miles — to keep out Palestinian attackers. Since the West Bank Judea/Samaria barrier has been built, suicide bombings and the murdering of innocent Israeli citizens have decreased dramatically.

Who are the players? Much has been written about Ezekiel's War or the Gog-Magog War as prophesied by God's prophet Ezekiel in Chapters 38 and 39. As we watch the events happening in Israel today carried out by her hostile Arab enemies and their Arab confederates as they unfold in the daily news reports around the world, one can easily see that this war is in the early planning stages as I write this.

No one really knows when this war will occur, but God's prophet Ezekiel gives us clues. Ezekiel tells us in Chapter 38 vs. 11 that Israel will be living in a land of "unwalled villages" and will be at rest and dwelling safely. "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 have neither bars nor gates."Ezekiel 38: 11

Israel, at present is not living in a land of "unwalled villages" or dwelling safely in the land, as there is still fighting going on within the land of Israel with rockets being shot off into the Negev by Israel's hostile enemies.

UPDATE: August 13, 2010-Gilo Protective Wall In Southern Jerusalem Coming Down

However, because Ezekiel says that Israel has unwalled villages, without bars and gates, may denote a description that is consistent with the ancient walled cities of biblical Israel, and the present unfinished "wall" to keep out terror groups and suicide bombers in Israel may not be an issue at all insofar as the timing of this war.

The separation "wall" as shown in the photo above separates and protects the Jewish people from the many terror groups out to destroy Israel and terrorize the Jewish people via suicide bombers and include Hamas, Hizbol, islamic jihad, alQaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egypt and many others and prevent them from entering into the land of Israel; and this wall or fence is presently a major concern of the EU, the Quartet, (of which the United States of America and Russia are a part of), the UN and Israel's hostile Arab neighbors who all want this fence removed and have been pressuring Israel to take it down. It is quite possible the removal of this fence will become a part of the final confirmed covenant with many with Israel and her hostile Arab enemies, which is being negotiated as I write this.

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?" Ezekiel 38:14

"And whe the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, ALSO THE PRINCE OF THE COVENANT."Daniel 11: 22

"And after THE LEAGUE MADE WITH HIM, HE SHALL WORK DECEIPTFULLY; for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people."Daniel 11: 23 The preceeding three verses seem to infer that this war will happen sometime after the "covenant with many" is confirmed.

"He shall enter "peacefully" even upon the fattest places of the province and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them prey, and spoil and riches, yea and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time."Daniel 11: 24

"Son on man, set thy face against GOG, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Me-shech and Tubal, and prophecy against HIM."Ezekiel 38: 2


Gog is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. He is, in my opinion an evil  spiritual being  and not a reference to a country as many have mistakenly referred to  GOG as Russia; but as you can see, Ezekiel calls GOG "the chief prince" in verse 2, or a powerful ruler. It is quite possible that this  GOG being is a figurative that denotes someone or some thing that is against Israel and is antichrist as all muslims are. 1 John 2:22-23.  Daniel 10:13 depicts an evil spirit: when he writes about the evil  prince of the kingdom of Persia, modern day Iran,  in the below passage.  The delay in Daniel's prayer had to do with the "prince of the Kingdom of Persia.  This "prince" is  a spirit of darkness, probably a fallen angel, assigned to this geographical area by satan or perhaps satan himself

The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia. 

WHAT IS MESHECK? Ezekiel 38:2

From Strong's concordance = drawing out Son of Japheth, grandson of Noah and progenitor of peoples to the north of Israel; descendants of Mesech often mentioned in connection with Tubal, Magog and other northern nations including the Moschi, a people on the borders of Colchis and Armenia. Moschi was a people inhabiting the Moschian Mountains between the Black and Caspian Seas. The region of Meshech is now the country of Georgia which is located in the southern tip of Russia and is predominantly orthodox Christian according to the CIA World Fact Book. It sets on the northwest corner of Armenia and the northeast corner of Turkey, which is also predominantly muslim.

WHAT IS TUBAL? Ezekiel 38:2

A region in east Asia Minor, perhaps equal to Cappadocia. Notice on the ancient empire of Persia atlas map above, Cappadocia is now modern day Turkey. Tubal was in modern day western Turkey also within the same locations as the Thracian region of Turkey. The chief ruler of Tubal at this time is the government of Turkey, and includes the land of Magog today, as would modern day
Syria  and northern Iraq, or Babylon. This very likely confirms this area as being a part of the same nations as an Islamic antichrist kingdom, which are muslim nations. 1 John 2:22-23.

 ***For years self proclaimed dispensationalist  "prophecy teachers" have taught that Ezekiel's war would primarily be of a Russian lead  invasion with  its muslim confederates, but I do not think  the Scriptures can substantiate that school of thought. Rather, the Bible does support a muslim lead confederacy of nations who are primarily enemies of Israel, and are antichrist,  which we see today taking place in the Middle East.***   It is best to just let the Scriptures and the maps read as they do and the Bible will interpret itself. This is not meant to say that modern day Russia will not play a part in this great war as events taking place in the Middle East today suggest  that Russia will indeed be highly involved considering Russia's weapons supply  agreements with Syria and Iran.

WHAT IS PERSIA? Ezekiel 38:5

Modern day Iran
Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them. Ezekiel 38:5

Daniel11:43 notes that Ethiopia and Libya are among those nations in an  antichrist kingdom. 1 John 2:22-23.

He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon." Daniel 11:41

He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape. Daniel 11:42

But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the preious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. Daniel 11:43. Edom was founded by Esau, Jacob's (renamed Israel) twin brother, and was located in a region southeast of Israel. It is shown in Genesis, Jeremiah. Amos, Isaiah and other places that God's favor did not fall upon Esau and Edom.

Moab is the ancient name for a mountainous strip of land located in present day Jordan that reachs towards the eastern coast of the Dead Sea.

WHAT IS GOMER? Ezekiel 38:6

"Gomer, and all his bands; the house of To-gar-mah of the north quarters, and all his bands and many people with thee."From Strong's concordance = Gomer was the eldest son of Japheth and the father of Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah. These people make up a large part of the muslim confederacy invasion of Israel during Ezekiel's War. Archeological evidence seems to indicate that these people of Gomer settled on the north of the Black Sea and expanded south and west of Europe. Genesis 10:3 mentions "Ashkenaz" as being a part of Gomer's clan. It is believed by many modern day Jews that this area is Germany. Josephus called the sons of Ashkenaz "the Rheginians," and a map of the ancient Roman empire shows them to be a part of modern day Poland, Czechoslovakia and Germany.

The Scriptures depicts a person called an "Assyrian" who God allows to come against Israel. Isaiah Chapter 10 reads:

"O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him charge, to take a spoil and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. vs. 5. Now compare the above verse from Isaiah 10:5 with Ezekiel 38:11-12:

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, Ezekiel 38:11 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. Ezekiel 38:12

One can now see from Scriptures in Ezekiel, Danial and Isaiah, how this Gog being  mentioned in Ezekiel's War can possibly be one and the same  as the Assyrian, even though Ezekiel's War and all nations against Jerusalem are two distinct events; however Ezekiel's War I believe may very well lead up to the battle at Jerusalem in which the Lord return's to do battle. The Scriptures tells us precisely the individual nations who will partake in Ezekiels War against the Jewish people of Israel, while the battle at Jerusalem it will be all nations of the world going against Jerusalem at the Day of the Lord.

BEHOLD, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north and half of it toward the south. Zechariah 14:1-4

Ezekiel 39 tells us that these muslim enemies of God and the enemies of the Jewish people will be destroyed on the mountains of Israel:

Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee. vs. 4. And Isaiah Chapter 14 pretty much says the same thing, of the Assyrian:

Then I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot; and shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart off their shoulder. vs. 25

The mountains of the Lord's land of Israel are located in Judea and Samaria, or what is called "The West Bank". Jerusalem, God's Holy City is located in the Judean mountains.

Pre-Tribulation Rapture?

There is no such thing as a "pre-tribulation" rapture, yet this satanic false doctrine is being pushed in just about every evangelical denominational church in America today.

 In fact, churches all across America have incorporated the pre-tribulation rapture theory into their Statement of Faith Doctrines, and if one should question it, you will be given the cold shoulder. Pastors and congregants have even been forced out of their church denominational positions for daring to speak out against this false unscriptural doctrine.Satan has deceived the masses in Christian American churches, as your megachurch televangelists such as John Hagee and fiction writers such as Jerry Jenkins and Tim Lahaye, Hal Lindsey and many more  have made billions of dollars selling this deception to the naive who have bought into this man made deception theology.

The first thing that Jesus told his followers in Matthew'sGospel, Chapter 24 vs. 4 when they asked him "what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world" was:

"Take heed that no man deceive you."
Those who are teaching that you are going to be air lifted and fly away before the antichrist is revealed are deceivers and false teachers. Plain and simple, no ifs, ands or buts. To cut to the chase, the pre-tribulation rapture is never mentioned at all in the scriptures and there is not one single passage that tells any serious Bible reader that the saints of Christ will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air secretly before the tribulation period.

This false teaching constitutes nothing less than replacement theology and changing the Word of God of which there is a stern warning against in Revelation 22:18-19.

To clarify, basically, the gist of the pre-tribulation rapture false doctrine is that Christians will be snatched off the earth in a secret rapture which will occur before the tribulation period. The Book of Revelation is believed by these false teachers promoting this as biblical fact is considered to be a time when God deals with Israel through a wicked one-world leader.

Dispensationalism, which is another false premise which they base their theories on, promotes that God dealt with Israel for sixty nine weeks of years and that the seventieth week known as Daniel's Seventieth Week, is still in the prophetic future. Therefore, it is taught by them that the entire tribulation period, or Daniel's Seventieth Week, is also called "Jacob's Troubles," without any scripture substantiation.

Your pre-tribulation rapture promoters would have you believe that God will deliver them from this time period or Daniel's Seventieth Week, snatch them off to a great wedding party in heaven, taking His Holy Spirit off the earth, and leave Israel to fend for itself without God's Holy Spirit when there is nothing further from the truth. Scripture tells us God's Holy Spirit never leaves the earth. There are several scriptures in the Bible that confirm this but for the purpose of this writing I will use Matthew 28:20 where Jesus himself said "and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

Pre-tribulation rapture promoters have invented several dispensations throughout history, thereby introducing a new dispensation in the final seven years and try to convince you that God is only concerned with "natural Israel", and not His church, again without any Biblical substantiation.This is absurb because God's people are always called Christians or saints throughout the Bible and as seen in the Book of Revelation, including the 144,000, or twelve thousand from each of the twelve tribes of Israel.

This feel good theology has become so profound in mainstream Christian evangelical churches that it is now an obsession; and the Christian church for the most part has been deceived with this false teaching in the same manner of any other cultic brainwashing; however, this time, the brainwashing has been done by people in your mainstream evangelical and televangelist's churches, and your internet message boards who have bought into the pre-tribulation rapture lie, and multitudes will be caught off guard and will not be ready to see the tribulation period or Daniel's Seventieth Week that is swiftly coming upon the world and will most likely fall into apostasy with the rest of the mainstream evangelical churches in America who are already deep into apostasy. Jesus himself said in John's Gospel 17:15:

"I pray NOT that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL."
Jesus would be going against His own prayer if a pre-tribulation were true.Paul, the great Jewish Apostle who wrote most of the New Testament, never in all of Scripture promoted or taught a pre-tribulation rapture. He wrote:

We shall be changed at the LAST TRUMP. I Corinth. 15:52.

The last trump is described as the seventh trump in Revelation 10:7 and 11:15-19. Jesus himself places the sign of His coming for his saints on earth immediately after the tribulation of those days in Matthew's Gospel 24:29-31.Paul's words agree with the words of Jesus wherein he also warns when speaking of the Lord coming for his saints:

Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first and that man of sin be revealed, the son of peridition. II Thess. 2:3 The foregoing text of scripture very clearly tells us the antichrist MUST be revealed first, and according to Daniel 9:27, this isn't until the middle of Daniel's Seventieth Week, which means there is no such thing as a pre-tribulation secret rapture.

Again, those promoting a pre-tribulation doctrine are false teachers and deceivers who have fallen away from the truth of God's Word, as the apostasy that Paul warns of is already upon us and time is short. The church has become lukewarm and comfortable and has departed from her first love in favor of seeker friendly, purpose driven, humanistic, wealth and prosperity, New Age, escapism me first teachings.

Jesus himself tells us four times that the Resurrection of the righteous will not happen 'till the LAST DAY in John's Gospel Chapter 6:

1. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I would lose nothing, BUT SHOULD RAISE IT UP AGAIN AT THE LAST DAY. vs. 39

2. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY. vs. 40

3. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him; and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY. vs. 44

4. whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life, and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY.vs. 54

Paul also writes and agrees with Jesus that the dead in Christ MUST RISE FIRST in I Thess 4:15-17, which we know from the words of Jesus is not until the last day.

"For this we say unto you BY THE WORD OF THE LORD, that we which are alive and remain until THE COMING OF THE LORD shall not prevent them which are asleep.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God; AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST;


It can't get much clearer that these words of Jesus and Paul. The Resurrection of the dead in Christ is on the last day and not before the seven year or Daniel's Seventieth Week period. John the Revelator agrees in Revelation 20:4-6 where John tells of the first Resurrection, which is a late event and depicts the tribulation saints who did not take the mark of the beast.

The last day is not until after the tribulation period or Daniel's Seventieth Week and occurs at the Day of the Lord, or Armageddon and the coming of the Lord, when the wrath of God is unleashed on the wicked of this world, at Armageddon, from which the righteous in Christ alive at this time will be delivered from and not before.

Russians Bidding for Control in Downtown Jerusalem ( If current negotiations with the Russians succeed, a large complex in central Jerusalem will be handed over to control of the Russian government.
The area in question is part or all of what is known as the Russian Compound, so named because it was built and once owned by the Russian government. It was originally constructed as one of the first complexes outside the Old City of Jerusalem, for the purpose of housing the thousands of Christian Russian pilgrims who wished to visit the holy city.
Though the 17-acre area in the heart of Jerusalem, between Jaffa, HaNeviim, and Shivtei Yisrael Streets, was once a bustling center with impressively-built structures, it now is used largely as a courthouse and detention center. The Russian government has of late informed various Israeli Prime Ministers that it would like to reclaim the area - at a price of $100 million.
Secret TalksNegotiations have been underway during the regimes of Ehud Barak, Ariel Sharon, and Ehud Olmert - very secretly, so as not to arouse the expected storm of public protest.

EZEKIEL Chapters 38 and 39 tell of the ungodly, satanic northern alliance which will attempt to annihilate Israel in the near future will meet its demise on the mountains of Israel. It is believed that this alliance will involve Russia, even though Russia is not mentioned in the text of Ezekiel Chapter 38, and Iran, united with the hostile arab enemies surrounding Israel today as outlined in Ezekiel Chapter 38, and of whom we hear about on the news daily. These evil conspirators are unaware that IT IS GOD who draws them toward their own demise. Those nations which seek to harm Israel will reap their own destruction under the hand of GOD'S judgement.

Ezekiel 38:16 reads:
"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''

The Iskander Threat
On Tuesday, May 29, 2007 Russia tested a modernized version of the Iskander-M tactical cruise missile. The Iskander, a kind of TBM (tactical ballistic missile) which has a 280 km range and carries a 480-kilo warhead, is considered one of the most advanced surface missiles in the world. Information has reached Israel that President Vladimir Putin is willing to sell the Iskander missiles to Syria, although no delivery date has been set. This constitutes a qualitatively new threat to Israel.

Iskander is the Arabic version of the name Alexander. In the fourth century BC, Alexander conquered much of the Middle East, including the Levant and Israel. It would be natural, then, for Arab militants to put their hopes in this symbolic missile. American officials eye the Iskander with great concern, believing it to be capable of striking the interceptors and radar station that America plans to deploy in Poland and the Czech Republic to shield Europe from Iranian missile attack.

It is insane, of course, for Putin to sell this missile to terror sponsoring state such as Syria. It clearly demonstraates that he is an enemy of the West and of Israel. Putin is ultimately taking Russia back to a pre-communist tzarism, with himself as the new Tzar. Israel’s worry is that the new missile, if sold to Syria, would allow that state to mount a surprise attack on Israel undetected.

The Iskander has a high capability for escaping detection and for pinpoint precision against small targets. The system can interact with space reconnaissance and unmanned aircraft. Both Israel and the United States will be watching further developments and tests of the Iskander in the coming months.

Ezekiel's War is getting closer and will soon become a reality, just as the prophet of God, Ezekiel prophesied thousands of years ago. You can trust God's Word to be true.
Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; No one comes to the Father but by me." Jesus Christ is the only one that can save you as the enemies of Israel and the Jewish people prepare to attack His beloved Israel and the people of Israel. If you have not repented of your sins and put your trust in Jesus Christ, I urge you to do so now, while there is still time, and follow Him, the one true God and Messiah of Israel and the world.

At Dachau extermination camp, two US soldiers gaze at victims of Hitler's Final Solution who died on board a death train.
The Forgotten People....Six Million People...
Anti-semitism has again reached the levels today as it was in Hitler's Germany in Europe as history repeats itself. Jewish cemeteries are being desecrated and synagogues are vandalized. Jewish people in Europe are attacked on a routine basis and the world turns its head the other way as anti-Jewish/anti-Israel propaganda is spread like a wild fire in the international anti-Semitic media. Christians world wide must not turn its head the other way as the "Christian church" in Hitler's Europe and the world did. We must never again let this happen to our Jewish brothers and sisters and we must unite and stand with them in word and deed where ever they are, and we must pray for them daily and we must take a stand against any and all forms of anti-semitism. Jesus called the Jews "his brethren." Matthew 25:31-46. Jesus Christ himself is Jewish. How can one say he is Christian and not love and stand with our Jewish brethren as Jesus did? God is not a hypocrit! In the Gospel of John, Jesus himself said, "Salvation is of the Jews" John 4:22.
Fred Thompson has got it right, and I agree with him.
The Israelis have gone to incredible lengths to stop the war against them without harming palestinian non combatant civilians, even in this state of war, as the International community stands idly by and watches. The Hamas government regularly repeats its official promise to destroy Israel entirely and replace it with an Islamic state, and Hamas has openly taken credit for killing one innocent Jewish woman and wounding dozens more last week alone. The strategy of this enemy is to purposely target and kill Israeli civilians; then, when Israel goes after those launching the attacks, the enemy claims to be the victims. If enemy civilians aren't hurt in the Israeli attacks, they stage injuries and deaths to gain international sympathy and support from anti-Semitic media internationally. I'm beginning to wonder how much longer this vicious plot will work though. International sympathy for the enemy is beginning to diminish as these same Islamofascist extremists have brought havoc to London, Bali, Madrid, Somalia, America and all around the world. Imagine what it would be like to live, knowing that a rocket could fall on you or your children at any minute.
Half of those who live nearest to Gaza have fled their homes and those who have not left are continually traumatized by daily warning sirens and explosions. This constant state of traumatization of Israeli citizens cannot go on indefinitely. Because of the Iranian threat to destroy Israel when they achieve their goal of getting the bomb, things are about to change and soon in the Middle East. Not only is Iran threatening to wipe Israel off the map, but so is Hamas; and has now openly announced that rockets will be launched into Israel from the West Bank/Judea-Samaria so there is little doubt if there ever was any at all that things will come to a head soon. Hey, if the international powers that be do not do something immediately to stop these Islamofacists and Iran, then the Israelis will have to do what they have to do to protect themselves; and the world along with Israel should prepare for the consequences of Israel rightfully defending itself.
