Are we headed towards the Gog and Magog war?
With things getting heated in the Middle East, the possible moving of the United states Embassy to Jerusalem, Isis and its jihad to set up a Islamic caliphate, Trump administration sanctions on Iran over missile test, US bad relations in the Middle East and with Russia, and the lates US missile attacks on Syria and it's 6 year on going civil war.. Are we headed to the Gog and Magog war? (Whether this war is before or after the rapture is up for debate. One thing is for certain, that the prophetic framework for the Gog and Magog war is being set in motion. This we cannot ignore.)
I believe we can find the answer in the book of Ezekiel chapters 35-39.
Ezekiel 35 and 36 Speak of the Israeli and Palestinian(Arab) Conflict that
has been going on since before Israel became a Nation in 1948.
The Palestinians(Arabs) will not be satisfied with a two state solution.. As a matter of fact Hamaz leaders teach that Jewish History is a Myth and that Israel should be destroyed. They want all the land of Israel to themselves and for Islam to ultimately triumph.
The bible has prophesied the very thoughts of the Palestinians(Arab) world in Ezequiel 35:10.
“Because you have said, ‘These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them,’ although the Lord was there," Ezekiel 35:10
We see here that a two state solution is not what the Arab world seeks. They say "‘These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them,’". They want all the land. When will our political leaders understand this?
We must understand that this is not a land issue. This is a hatred towards GOD.
2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that "HATE THEE" have lifted up the head.3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. Psalms 83: 2-4
But this is what GOD says concerning the land of Israel in Ezekiel 36. Praise God!!!
"7 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame. 8 But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come. 9 For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. 10 I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. 11 I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the Lord. 12 Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.” Ezequiel 36:7-12
*Note: to learn more about the history of the Israeli and Palestinian(Arab) conflict in the Middle East, I recommend that you study:
The 1917 Balfour Declaration letter: The Balfour Declaration represents the first time a world power—Great Britain—recognized the need for a Jewish homeland
Nov. 29, 1947 | U.N. Partitions Palestine, Allowing for Creation of Israel: Despite strong Arab opposition, the United Nations votes for the partition of Palestine and the creation of an independent Jewish state.
Ezekiel 37 speaks prophetically of the rebirth of the state of Israel in 1948.
What A Miracle! Praise God! The greatest sign to our Generation. Take heed saints of God!
Ezekiel saw a valley of dry bones in his vision. It was a prophetic image of the mass graves found by Allied Powers During World War 2. Over 6 Million jews died in the holocaust, But thank God that those bones lived again and became a Nation.
"While stories abound of miracles that took place during Israel’s War of Independence, one story sticks out. It is referred to as the Battle of Netanyahu. (The definition of the Hebrew word netanyahu is “God has given.)
On May 15, 1948, Israel officially declared statehood. The very next day, the nascent Jewish state was invaded by the armies of Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq. As soon as Israel declared independence on May 15, 1948, she found herself in an untenable situation. The new state was populated almost entirely by war refugees and possessed no means of protection. With no army and no weapons, she was a sitting duck. According to legend, the fledgling nation possessed approximately five machine guns with about fifteen rounds of ammunition and one tank." - https://unitedwithisrael.org/1948-the-miracle-of-israels-birth/
Ezekiel 38 and 39 speak of the Gog and Magog war.
The Israeli and Palestinian(Arab) Conflict reaches the breaking point and the nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38 make an alliance to make war against Israel.
10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought. 11 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 38:10-11
Scripture tells us In Ezekiel 38 that Magog is a powerful Nation and Army that possesses powerful weapons as mentioned in Ezekiel 38:4. Magog Equips the Muslim Nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38:5 with its weapons.
Ezekiel 38:4 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.
Is Magog modern day Russia?
Russia is the second largest conventional arms exporter after the United States, with $13.5 billion worth of exports in 2012. Combined, the USA and Russia account for 58% of all major weapons exports. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_industry_of_Russia
Russia is also the biggest supplier of weapons to Israels enemies in the Muslim World!!! Particularly Iran.
Russia has been in talks with Iran over a $10 billion arms deal in which Moscow would provide advanced tanks, artillery systems, planes and helicopters to the Islamic republic. - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/…/russia-may-sell-iran-10-billi…/
"a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. " Ezekiel 38:4
Ezequiel 38:4 speaks of sophisticated weaponry.
Is this Prophecy being fulfilled? Are we headed to a war?
Magog sure sounds a lot like modern day Russia.
Ezekiel 38:5 tells us that Persia (Modern day Iran) Is one of the Nations that will spearhead and lead this war against Israel.
"5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet;" Ezekiel 38:5
Notice that scripture says that these muslim nations, with Persia (Iran) leading the pack, Have been supplied with weapons.
"all of them with shield and helmet;"
Again, Russia is currently the biggest supplier of weapons to Israels enemies and the biggest supplier of weapons to Iran, Israels greatest enemy in the Middle east.
Could moving the embassy of the United states to Jerusalem and the sanctions imposed on Iran by the Trump administration over missile test lay the framework for Ezekiel 38-39 events to be fulfilled?
President Trump has made it clear he would support Israel in a number of critical areas, including moving the American embassy to Jerusalem and he also acknowledged that Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of the Jewish People for over 3000 years.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R), Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) and Nevada Sen. Dean Heller (R) proposed the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act that would commit the United States to moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Iran has stated time and time again it is ready for war!!!
They are on the record as stating
"We have prepared ourselves for the most dangerous scenarios and this is no big deal and is simple to digest for us; we welcome war with the US as we do believe that it will be the scene for our success to display the real potentials of our power," -Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami
The Palestinians are ready for WAR!!!
"The Palestinian Authority’s supreme Sharia judge and President Abbas’ advisor on religious affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash declared on during Friday prayers that a move of the embassy would be considered “a declaration of war” on all Muslims. His sermon was broadcast live on Palestinian TV with PA President Abbas in the audience."
Russia is ready for war!!!
Former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev has warned that the world is at a "dangerous point" due to rising tensions between Russia and the United States, citing a "collapse of mutual trust."
Could the sanctions imposed on Iran by the Trump administration over missile test, the move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem as Israels capital, bad relations in the middle east and with Russia be the tipping point that brings about the Gog and Magog war that has been prophesied?
We must understand that this is a spiritual battle. Islam is a Spirit. Communism is a spirit. This is the spirit of the age that we are up against. Powerful fallen angels are behind these nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38. The bible calls these fallen angels "Princes".
“Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the PRINCE of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him," Ezekiel 38:2
"according to the PRINCE of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience." Ephesian 2:2
America must put its hope in God. This is a spiritual battle that cannot be won with politics and policies.
"Its Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the LORD of hosts."
Pray for our President!
"I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts." - President Franklin D. Roosevelt D-Day June 6, 1944
