An unspeakably evil man known as Gog plots a vicious plan to destroy Israel. Ezekiel 38:17 reveals, that the prophets of Almighty God prophesied for years concerning Gog. His army includes Persia, Libya,Ethiopia, Gomer and all his bands, the House of Togarmah, and others. Notice Gog is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Ezekiel 38:8 and 16 reveal, that this event will be in the latter days. The man Gog seems to be from the region of Georgia/Armenia/Azerbaijan/northeastern Turkey. The Holy Bible says it this way: The word of YaHVeH came unto me saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, thus saith the Lord GOD, behold I am against you O Gog ……”
Verses 18-22 reveal that this military attack against YaHVeH’s people will infuriate YaHVeH, and He will take it personally. He will fight for Israel. All fish and animals and men on the face of the earth will shake at the presence of YaHVeH. The mountains will be thrown down, there will be an overflowing rain, there will be great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Obviously YaHVeH’s patience will have run out with the haters of Israel, who brag about all they are going to do.
Ezekiel 39:4 reveals, that YaHVeH will feed Gog to the ravenous birds and the beasts of the field, for they will fall down in the dust on the mountains of Israel. Ezekiel 39:11 says that YaHVeH will give Gog a place of graves there in Israel. The stench of Gog rotting will stop the noses of passersby, and it will take Israel 7 months to bury Gog and do away with Gog’s weaponry.
As I said, in Ezekiel 38:17 the Almighty apparently refers to prophets other than Ezekiel, who have prophesied about these things. I believe one of these other prophets is Daniel. In Daniel chapter 8 we see Alexander the Great conquering Persia. When Alexander dies, his kingdom is divided into 4 kingdoms. Notice in verse 9 the phrase, “OUT OF ONE OF THEM”. Out of one of these kingdoms a little horn will arise. I am intrigued with this little clue. The Holy Spirit seems to be revealing to us, that THE ANTI-CHRIST WILL COME OUT OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT’S DIVIDED EMPIRE.
The little horn seems to be this Gog of Ezekiel. Some will say that the man in Daniel 8 is Antiochus Epiphanes. Some of chapter 8 may indeed be talking about Antiochus Epiphanes; however, verse 23 gives us clarity. It says “in the latter time of their kingdom” and “when the transgressors are come to the full”. Verse 10 says this little horn waxed great against the host of heaven and cast some of the stars to the ground. Apparently this little horn is the anti-Christ/the Beast/the Man of Sin, who is possessed by Satan/Lucifer. Lucifer is the one whose fall from heaven brought about the fall of a third of the angels/stars to the ground of earth.
Daniel 8:17 says that the vision is at the time of the end. Verse 19 refers to the “last end of the indignation” and the “time of the end”. The vision was so intense, that the prophet Daniel fainted and was sick for several days.
All of these passages are very intriguing and exciting. Almighty YaHVeH will allow His enemies seemingly to get the victory, but just when it seems all is lost, YaHVeH will shake the very foundations of the earth. His fury will come up in His face and He will take crushing vengeance against His adversaries, the adversaries of Israel. He will crush Gog/Magog/Persia/Ethiopia/Libya and all the others with them, and give them a massive place of graves in Israel. The boastful Muslim leaders who assume to annihilate Israel desperately need to find some wisdom from somewhere, for they will NEVER succeed in completely destroying Israel. If they continue on the path they are on, they will instead be the ones who are destroyed. Almighty God has spoken and will not take it back. You rulers of the nations: wake up while yet there is time, for you will never triumph over YaHVeH. The progressives do not know what real progress is. Progress is not shedding the boundaries of the Almighty. All who continually oppose YaHVeH will find themselves bending the knee to Yahshua Jesus, when it is already too late.The righteous in Christ have nothing to fear, for their end is peace.
For those who love intriguing things to consider, GOOGLE “Gogarena”. Ancient Gogarena is in the general area of Georgia/Azerbaijan/Armenia/northeastern Turkey. This area does fall within Alexander the Great’s empire.
Those who disagree with what I have written need not get bent out of shape. The end-time is not easily understood and the Almighty reveals piece by piece as it pleases Him. If what I have written is accurate, then it will stand the test of time. Agreeing or disagreeing neither makes it stand or fall. It is wise to be vigilant so that these things do not overtake us unawares. My true Christian brethren, are we not all trying to get to the truth of it all? and has not our God whetted our appetite for these things?
