“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. Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel.” (Ezekiel 38: 16-19) When the vast coalition led by Russia and Iran marches, the God of the Holy Bible will say, “It is enough.”

There is little question but that Gog and Magog are the Soviet Union, the ancient land of the Scythians. There is a great display of Scythian art, history, and archeological discoveries in the Hermitage Museum of Saint Petersburg. Note this statement by Dr. Onyshkevych. “Russian explorers first brought Scythian artworks recovered from Scythian burial mounds to Peter the Great in the early eighteenth century. These works formed the basis of the collection held by the Heritage Museum in Saint Petersburg. Catherine the Great was so impressed by the material recovered from the kurgans, burial mounds, that she ordered a systematic study be made of the works. However, this was well before the development of modern archeological techniques.”

Another connections between the Scythians and the land of Russia says, “Recent digs in Belsk, Ukraine uncovered a vast city believed to be the Scythian capitol Gelonus described by Herodotus. … A Kurgan … south of Kiev, found in the 1990s, has revealed one of the few unlooted tombs of a Scythian Chieftan.” This gives us ample proof of the connection in history.

It is very interesting that an author of Iranian and Muslim background has written a book called, “An Islamic View of Gog and Magog in the Modern World.” Here is a quotation from its opening section. “There is a ban on a town (Jerusalem) which we destroyed (and whose people were then expelled) that they can never return (to reclaim that town) until Gog and Magog are released and they spread out in all directions (thus taking control of the world while establishing a Gog and Magog world-order.)” When the enemy tries to imitate truth they always prove truth.

This prophecy of the War of Gog and Magog is set in absolute terms and with many connections. Ezekiel stated, near the beginning of this prophecy, “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.” (Ezekiel 38:8) There is no other historic time that matches this statement.

The coalition of Nations does not leave out any Arab nation except Iraq, where the Anti-Christ will place his seat. It is clear that Iran and other Islamic nations are perfectly ready to destroy another nation of Islam if they refuse to join them.

I believe there are strategy meetings of this coalition that are secretly preparing for the fateful hour. I can imagine in the resort town of Sweineh, Jordan at the Jordan Valley Marriot Resort a delegation from every Arab Nation talking while I write this, and laying out the details. Of course it’s secret but how do you hide from Israeli spies, yet more importantly, how do you hide from the Holy Spirit? The entire “Arab Spring,” as the on-going Middle East developments are called, is nothing but the final details before the action. The Muslim Brotherhood is willing to destroy half of the Middle East if they can finally destroy the Nation of Israel.

God has promised, “And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.” (Ezekiel 39: 6-8)

This world is about to see the kind of action from the Creator that will leave no doubt, and all will have to decide. It will be God or the Devil, and no one will have an excuse. (THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT WE START A STUDY ON EZEKIEL CHAPTERS 38 and 39. 7:00 P.M.) A great book of notes will be provided for those that attend.

THIS SERIES IS DESPERATE FOR THE UNEDUCATED CHURCH THAT HAS BEEN DEPRIVED OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION. THE CLERGY OF OUR DAY ARE BASICALLY UNLEARNED OF THIS MOST IMPORTANT BOOK AND THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF PROPHECY. The Middle East is in perfect preparation for “The War Of Gog And Magog.” My gift for today is a new Prophetic News Alert entitled, “JOHN, THE REVELATOR, SAW THE FIRE COMING.” I will send up to five free if you will share them with family or friends.

  1. Unrelated, but as this is prepared, Israel is considering the option of a nuclear EMP strike against Iran that will shut down that entire nation’s electronic infrastructure. Israel is not confident that no fly zones or surface to air missile attacks against IAF forces won’t be enforced if a conventional air attack plan against Iran is adhered to. And PM Netanyahu does not trust the United States.

    The Godless regime in Russia (and its allies) faces a bleak future in light of Scripture. Prayerfully many Russian citizens will be ready to meet Jesus before this occurs.


    Dear Joe Chambers,

    Whether Russia’s invasion of Israel happens before or after the Rapture, we do not know. If it does happen before the Rapture, it would PUT US ON THE NOTICE: IT’S ALMOST TIME TO GO!!! We would not have very much time after that. THAT WOULD BE THE BIG WAKE-UP CALL IF IT HAPPENS FIRST. Before GOG & MAGOG CAN INVADE, ALL ARAB & MUSLIM COUNTRIES MUST BE RADICALIZED. THE SAUDI MONARCHY WILL BE OVERTHROWN. That would CUT OFF OUR ACCESS TO ARAB OIL. Drillers are now finding more oil in USA and Canada,(BY USING FRACKING) reducing our dependency on “ENEMY SOURCES” as Richard Nixon referred to Arab Oil during 1973 embargo. There is now a glut of Natural gas. BIG RIG TRUCKS are being shifted to natural gas. If Romney gets elected, DRILLING IN GULF OF MEXICO WILL BE RE-OPENED. The biggest problem that we have is OUR MUSLIM PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. HE IS SUPPORTING THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WHICH IS OVERTHROWING ARAB COUNTRIES PREPARING THE WAY FOR GOG & MAGOG. OBAMA IS THE WORST EN ENEMY OF ISRAEL IN THE USA. IN USA the ORTHODOX JEWS (hard-shell Jews) were smart enough to avoid voting for Obama. The most of the rest of the Jews made FOOLS OF THEMSELVES IN PUTTING THEIR WORST ENEMY IN THE WHITE HOUSE. He keeps trying to BLOCK ISRAEL FROM AIR-RAIDING IRAN’S NUCLEAR PLANTS. Israel needs to do that right now. If Mitt Romney wins the Election, HE WILL CUT OFF SUPPORT TO THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. He will not support our Muslim enemies like the Muslim president Obama. WHEN RUSSIA GETS DESTROYED LIKE SODOM & GOMORRAH has been. THE ISLAMIC RELIGIOUS TEMPLES AT MECCA, MEDINA, (SAUDI ARABIA) AND QOM (IRAN) will be destroyed at same time. This will wipe out the Muslim Religion. What happens after these countries are wiped out. IT WILL LEAVE A POWER VACUUM. The EUROPEAN UNION will GOBBLE UP ALL OR RUSSIA WEST OF THE EURAL MOUNTAINS. CHINA WILL GOBBLE UP SIBERIA. CHINA HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO TAKE EASTERN RUSSIA. THAT WILL BE THEIR OPPORTUNITY. THE EUROPEAN UNION WILL ALSO GOBBLE UP TURKEY AND IRAQ. ONCE IRAQ BECOMES PART OF EUROPE, THE REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE CAN MOVE IT’S CAPITAL IN TO BABYLON OF IRAQ, BECAUSE IT WILL BE PART OF SOUTHEASTERN EUROPE. THE POPE AND THE VATICAN CAN MOVE THERE TOO. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CAN GO BACK TO BABYLON WHERE IT WAS BORN. Nimrod was the first Pope there.

  3. There is no doubt at all in my mind that all the players and all the props for Ezekiel 38 are being assembled right now. That it will occur is certain, but exactly when, I think, is not totally certain, at least as I see it.

    My biggest reason for thinking it comes later rather than sooner is that Ezekiel’s description relates such a drastic and obvious act of God’s direct intervention occurring that how could most of the world then turn to the Antichrist? If someone could resolve this for me, I’d sure appreciate it.

    I do expect Israel to hit Iran very soon, in fact their survival depends on it. If they wait much longer Iran will have its nuclear facilities so hardened that no human effort will be able to stop them. The question is, will Russia get involved at this point? Or will they wait and
    see just how effective (or not) Israel’s attack on Iran is first?
    I personally think the natural gas deposts already known to exist off Israel’s coast and what I believe will be huge amounts of oil that will be found in the former territories of Zebulun (Deuteronomy 33:18-19) and Asher (Deuteronomy 33:24) may provide yet another a big draw for Israel’s enemies to move against it in an energy-hungry world. Of course, those verses may have another interpretation, but taken literally and in the context of current events, I think they do suggest petroleum wealth for Israel.

    Best thing we can all do is to be ready for the turmoil that is about to come in the Middle East very, very soon.

  4. I see two different wars, where the names Gog and Magog are used. Ezekiel 38 seems to me probably before the Tribulation. It troubles me tho, that is says Israel will “dwell safely all of them”. Can we say Israel is dwelling safely today? I see two ingatherings in Scripture of the Jews back to Israel…one in unbelief and one in belief. We all realize the recent gathering of Jews globally back to Israel has been in unbelief.

    Then the battle at the end of the Millenial Reign of Christ for a thousand years in Revelation 20:7-10 with Gog and Magog, seems to me NOT to be the same battle as in Ezekiel 38…..”Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison etc”. This is definitely at the end of The Millenial Reign of a 1,000 years by Christ.

    Then you have the coming of all birds to the supper of the great God in Rev. 19:17-18. In the destruction of the king of the north, the battle of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39), a similar scene is pictured of the birds of heaven being invited to devour the flesh of those conquered. This gruesome event will occur TWICE in the last days of human history it seems to me. When the invasion of the king of the north occurs (before the Tribulation period?), the vultures of the earth will gather for this feast Ezekiel describes, devouring the flesh and blood of the invaders.

    At the end of the Tribulation period (Armageddon) this event will occur AGAIN and all the kings of the earth become the supper upon which the birds of heaven feast.

    That is where I am at at this point…..but I am open to correction or critism. Confusing stuff unless you carefully “rightly divide the word of God”. L. Prince

    The actual judgment God uses to destroy this rebellion is DIFFERENT from that in Ezekiel 38 or Revelation 19. It is the same judgement God used on Sodom and Gomrrah—-“And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.”

  5. Note to L. Price:

    I agree totally with your analysis. There are two Gog-Magog events. It would seem they do involve people from the same regions, but two distinct periods of time. The event described in Revelation comes right at the end of the Millennium, Ezekiel’s is before, though how soon before, I don’t think can be definitively ascertained. It could be Pre-Trib, or during the Tribulation itself perhaps as an event related to Armageddon. I’ve encountered good and well-reasoned arguments on both so I’m keeping an open mind.

    The details of each are so different that in order to make them both true, they MUST be two different events.

  6. Dear Pastor,

    Interesting tid bits on early discoveries of Scynthian cities and dwellings in Russia. i will try to study this a bit more this winter when i get my home internet service working. This is my work computer.

    We are so close, as always you are in my prayers Joseph Chambers.
