A Look at Our Current Situation

There is so much bloodshed and brutality taking place between Israel and Hamas, that many have been looking for comparisons between what’s happening today and the Gog and Magog invasion of Israel found in Ezekiel 38 and 39.  And the similarities are striking.

Ezekiel foretells an end-times invasion of Israel led by Gog, ruler of Magog, along with Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, and other nations.  It also reveals that God providentially brings this vast alliance down to invade Israel, only to judge them harshly.  And I mean, really harshly.  Sodom and Gomorrah harshly.

Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.  I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords.  Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops— many people are with you” (Ezekiel 38:1-6).

And when you identify the people groups involved with their related nations today, it’s like a primer on the beginning of World War 3.

•   Gog – Leader (Demonic)
•   Land of Magog (Scythians) – Central Asia, the countries that made up the former Soviet Union (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan)
•   The Prince of Rosh – Russia
•   Meshech and Tubal – Modern Turkey
•   Persia – Iran
•   Ethiopia (Cush) – Modern Sudan, nations south of Egypt
•   Libya (Put or Phut) – Modern Libya, possibly as far as Algeria and Tunisia, those west of Egypt
•   Gomer (Cimmerians) – Central Turkey
•   House of Togarmah – Modern Turkey, North of Israel


Arab Nations Against God’s People

Let’s look at Ezekiel 38:1-6 again, only with the current nations included.

Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog (Central Asia, the countries that made up the former Soviet Union), the prince of Rosh (Russia), Meshech, and Tubal (modern Turkey) and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.  I (God’s actions) will turn you (Gog from Magog, prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal) around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out (again, God’s actions), with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords.  Persia (Iran), Ethiopia (modern Sudan), and Libya (modern Libya, including Algeria and Tunisia) are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer (central Turkey) and all its troops; the house of Togarmah (modern Turkey, north of Israel) from the far north and all its troops— many people are with you” (Ezekiel 38:1-6).

Can you see the chess pieces being sovereignly moved into place for this prophecy to be fulfilled before our very eyes?  I sure can.  So join us as we look deeper into the Gog and Magog conflict, which is a key indicator the end is near.

And keep looking up, for our redemption draws near (Luke 21:28).
