THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG, BEFORE OR AFTER THE RAPTURE? (A SPECIAL PRESENTATION GIVEN AT A PROPHECY CONFERENCE)
NEVER IN HUMAN HISTORY HAS AN ARMY EQUALED IN FIREPOWER AND MANPOWER AS WILL SOON MARCH TOWARD JERUSALEM. To begin to calculate the mass of soldiers and military equipment is overwhelming. We are talking of the possibility of 20 to 30 nations joined together and coming at Israel from all directions. I can hear the Generals saying, “We must have at least one hundred times the firepower of Israel to assure that not one Jew will be left alive.” They also will calculate that Israel’s fighting abilities are so great we must have overwhelming advantages. It will be called the “End of the World” by Media giants as this array of armies begin to assemble.
There is no doubt that the northern nation of Russia will be at the helm. “Josephus identified the offspring of Magog as the Scythians, a name used in antiquity for peoples north of the Black Sea. According to him, the Greeks called the ancient city of Scythia, Magogia.” (Wikipedia Encyclopedia) Our Study Notebook entitled, “THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG’ proves beyond question the connection of Russia to the Scythian people that were the inhabitant of this area. Meshech and Tubal were the ancient people of the Georgians located on the northern shores of the Black Sea.“Georgians have traditions that they, and other Caucasus people as well as Armenians, share descent from Meshech, Georgian: Meskheti, Tubal”. (Wikipedia Encyclopedia) Add to this, Togarmah, which is unquestionably connected to Turkey and the northern leadership of this war is perfectly identified.
It’s amazing to discover that five of the key names in Ezekiel 38 are also found in Genesis Chapter ten. These nations were named by God’s perfect revelations over 4,000 years ago. Ezekiel made this prophecy during his captivity in Babylon approximately 2,600 years ago and we can find perfect connection in the archives of history. Not one verse of God’s Bible is questionable. Here is Moses’ statement by the Wisdom of the Ages. “Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood. The sons of Japheth; GOMER, and MAGOG, and Madai, and Javan, and TUBAL, and MESHECK, and Tiras. And the sons of GOMER; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and TOGARMAR.” (Genesis 10:1-3) (Names appearing in the Ezekiel text are all caps.)
The firepower of Russia alone is awesome and this event will call for their total commitment. Remember this text says that God will put a “hook in their jaws.” All restraints will be taken out of their minds. The Prophecy proclaims, “And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords…” Actually, there will be insanity in this entire commotion. Anger, determination, human arrogance, will be all mixed with a God-imposed “all or nothing” attitude. Here is a quote from the Federation of American Scientists. “According to the Federation of American Scientists, a renowned organization for assessing nuclear weapon stockpiles, Russia possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction in the world. The organization also claims that Russia has 4,650 active nuclear warheads, while the U.S. has 2,468. In addition to nuclear weapons, Russia declared an arsenal of 39,967 tons of chemical weapons in 1997, of which 57% have been destroyed.” If the 57% were destroyed they still possess 22,781 tons (That’s over 455 million pounds) of chemical death. Do we believe that Russia will help destroy Syria’s chemical weapons, or will they move them to their own stockpile?
The world’s greatest hatred is reserved for the Jewish people. While Iran is the loudest voice, they are representative of a large proportion of mankind. Bible believing Christians are hatred almost as severely. The Ayatollah of Iran is the world’s spokesman for this hatred. “Calling Israel a danger to Islam, the conservative website Alef, with ties to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khomeini, said the opportunity must not be lost to remove “this corrupting material. It is a ‘jurisprudential justification’ to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm. The article, written by Alireza Forghani, an analyst and a strategy specialist in Khomeini’s camp, now is being run on most state-owned sites, including the Revolutionary Guards”. (Fars News Agency) The only way hatred can reach the level now visible is an evil power greater than men themselves.
It’s sad to know that the Democratic Convention in Charlotte had to railroad the Convention to replace the name of God and the reference to Jerusalem. John Bolton, America’s number one foreign policy expert, just released the following statement: “There is no way at this stage to prevent Iran from going nuclear without use of force. It is very unfortunate in my opinion, but I see no possibility that the present administration will use military force, and therefore it falls upon Israel. I think that even though the Administration says that containment is not its policy, it will become a policy the day after Iran possesses nuclear weapons.” The Bible describes this battle as clearly in “APOCALYPTIC” terms.
The Turkish Prime Minister, Recept Ayyip Erodogan, used this same word “APOCALYPSE” this week. The Prophecy of Ezekiel says “Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. 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: 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, 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 38:9-12)
Somehow I would love for this to transpire before the Rapture. We could have a multitude of souls coming to Christ when they see that God really means business. It is coming my friends!
We have prepared a notebook entitled, “THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG”. This is a comprehensive study of this subject like I have always wanted for myself. Every nation involved is identified with historic information. The many things coming from Iran, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Russia or Israel, etc. will be represented. There will be eight articles written to help explain the development as the study progresses. It is done in color and is finished at 154 pages. Everything we do is fully guaranteed with our money back promise. We are here to bless not make money. The notebook will be sent immediately. (Notebook $29.95, Email without notebook cover $15.00) The presentation you have heard is available on CD or DVD. Call 1 800 338 7884 or 1 704 391 0588. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
