"And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies." - Num. 10:9
THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON
"If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?" - Jeremiah 12:5

GOG & MAGOG, THE SCRIPT AND THE ACTORS
Trying to come to an understanding of who or what Gog and Magog are, and the Battle associated with them, is a perplexing task. Some folks even believe that there are two battles with Gog & Magog, separated by a thousand year reign of the saints.
In this study, I will show that there is only one horrendous battle with these nation groups and that it is a part of the great Battle of Armageddon.
There is the spiritual aspect of the Battle of Armageddon and there is also a literal, physical aspect that we need to understand.
But in order to do so, we will need to take a look at the participants themselves and the prophecies touching on this Battle. A failure to know who we are and who our enemy is, can only bring us destruction.
Some years ago, I watch a documentary on T.V. that was filmed on an island. It was about the birds who inhabited the island.
The island was originally the home of some very beautiful white birds, whose name I forgot. They seemed to be very happy. But then something strange happened. A pair of birds belonging to an unusual species came
to the island. These new-comers had a peculiar custom - they did not raise their own off-spring. What they would do, is place one of their eggs in the nest of one of the original inhabitants of the island.
And since they did not seem to know the difference between their own off-spring and that of the foreign birds, mom and dad would fly off to forage for food to feed them.
As I recall, the strange birds would cry louder than the original off-spring, so that they began to get the lion’s share of food. Then, when mom and dad were gone, it would kick each of the other birds out of the nest, causing them to fall to their early death.
In time, all the original birds, who inhabited the island, had become extinct and the foreign bird had to look for another island to conquer.
I always wondered why mom and dad could not recognize what was happening to them.
It reminds me of certain Christians today, who refuse to believe the Scriptures and thereby bring about their own destruction. You will see what I mean as we get into this study.
THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS
What a lot of Christians and their false prophets, who lead them, do not understand, is that the Kingdom of God has been with us here on earth for the past two- thousand years.
Rev. 20:6-10 "Blessed and holy is he who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and they shall reign with him a thousand years.
"And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be loosed from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth, that is, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.
"And they marched up over the broad earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city; but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
Another prophecy relating to this Battle is found in the 2nd Psalm. It has never been fulfilled until today, but I believe it is being fulfilled at this very moment.
Psalms 2:1-5 "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine (meditate on) a vain thing? The kings of the world,
[the GOG-MAGOG Alliance], and their rulers, take counsel against the Lord, and against His anointed (Israel), saying, "Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision (contempt). Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure."
Our enemies today, are saying the same thing that another group of people said about our spiritual forefathers, who had returned from Babylon (which was ruled by Persia) to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 4:10, 11 "And Judah said, The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall. And our adversaries said, They shall not know, neither see, till we come in the midst among them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease."
There are things which happened in ancient times to the returning captives, which should serve as an example to us today and to our beloved land, called America.
This land has been settled by people coming from the wars and religious persecutions of the Old World and their descendants have forgotten their heritage.
I believe that the United States and Canada are inhabited by ‘Spiritual Israel’.
Gentile Christians have been ‘grafted on’ to the olive tree (Israel). If this is not true, then their religion and faith is to no avail because Salvation belongs to the ‘Jews’.
"Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews."
- John 4:22
Zechariah 2:4-5 "Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her."
Hebrews 11:8 "By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God."
Hebrews 11:13 "These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city."
If my reader has not read our Ebook, ‘After a Long Train of Abuse’, I would encourage you to do so. Now, let’s consider another prophecy about Gog & Magog.
EZEKIEL’S PROPHECY ABOUT GOG AND MAGOG
Ezekiel 38:1 "And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech
and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief princeof Meshech and Tubal:
4 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:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 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.
9 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.
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,
12 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.
AMALEK AND FULFILLED PROPHECY
It is my believe that the above prophecy was fulfilled to a great extent by Israel’s war with Amalek under the leadership of Haman. Ezekiel 38-39 describes the attack of Gog (Haman) and his confederates against the Jews.
The events of Esther took place during the reign of Xerxes, after the initial rebuilding of the Temple under Joshua and Zerubbabel and shortly before the restoration of the Temple by Ezra and the rebuilding of the walls by Nehemiah.
In the same year that the prophet Jeremiah was called (626 B.C.), swarms of Scythian invaders struck terror into the nations surrounding the Assyrian empire. Having made a pact with the Assyrians, Scythian horsemen were sent against Egypt and Judah.
The victory of the Jews over their enemies in Esther resulted in the deaths of 75,310 people (Esth. 9:10, 15, 16). This number of deaths is commensurate with the extent of the slaughter pictured in Ezekiel 38-39.
Another interesting correspondence lies in the fact that the book of Esther repeatedly calls attention to the "127 provinces" of the Persian Empire, and in connection with the attack
on the Jews, speaks of the "provinces which were from India to Cush" (Esth. 8:9). This goes well with the way Ezekiel 38 starts out, for there a number of nations are mentioned from all over the world, all of which were within the boundaries of the Persian Empire (Ezk. 38:1-6).
In other words, the explicit idea that the Jews were attacked by people from all the provinces of Persia is in both passages.
The Hebrew word for "multitude" in Ezekiel 39:11, 15, and 16. That word is hamon, which is spelled in Hebrew almost exactly like the name Haman.
It was Haman, of course, who engineered the attack on the Jews in Esther. In Hebrew, both words have the same "triliteral root" (hmn). Only the vowels are different.
(Though in hamon, the vowel "o" is indicated by the letter vav.) According to Ezekiel 39:11 and 15, the place where the army of Gog is buried will be known as the Valley of Hamon-Gog, and according to verse 16, the nearby city will become known as Hamonah.
Amos, another prophet of Israel, also foresaw an invasion led by Gog. "Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto me; and, behold, he informed grasshoppers in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and, lo, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings." Amos 7:1 (KJV)
Our English Bible takes its translation from the Masoretic text, a 9th century source. However, an earlier translation of the Old Testament into Greek, known as the Septuagint, embodies a different rending:
"Thus the Lord showed me, and behold a swarm of locusts were coming, and behold, one of the young devastating locusts was Gog, the King." Amos 7:1 (LXX)
It is not possible to be dogmatic about the interpretation of Ezekiel 38. On one hand we can say that it was literally fulfilled in the days of Queen Esther and Haman. But then, there are elements of this prophecy that seem to speak of our own day and age. I’ll come back to this quickly.
END OF AMALEK
Haman the Agagite mentioned in Esther 3:1 is called an Amalekite by Josephus in Antiquities 11:6:1). Who were the Amalekites? I don’t know.
What does Gog actually mean? "Gog - it is a long o both in the Hebrew and in the Greek - is made from the old-world-root 'GG', which in the early languages implied something 'g-i-g-antic' - Bullinger’s Companion Bible, page 1161 (Bullinger believes this refer to China).
A potentate of bible history and prophecy was 'Agog'. That name, or rather, its title, comes from the same root. He was (in his own estimation), a, Aleph, + GG = No. 1 - GREAT ! The Agagites, we are told in Young's Analytical Concordance, were an ‘Amalekite tribe’ and Agog, was 'a poetic name of Amalek, derived from a
particular dynasty ...'. (Milner 1941:9-10). Someone once observed, Amalek was the first enemy of Israel, and he will be the last enemy of Israel.
Adam's Clarke's Commentary quotes another translation of this verse to show the true meaning of this passage: " the most rational version of which is the following: 'Because the hand of Amalek is against the throne of God, therefore will I have war with Amalek from generation to generation...
God makes now a declaration of war against the Amalekites, which shall continue till their final destruction" (p.761, emphasis added). This final destruction will take place in our own time.
Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost, Professor of New Testament Literature and Exegesis at Dallas Theological Seminary tries to make a distinction between the Battle of Gog & Magog and Armageddon. He tries to make these two different battles.
- J. Dwight Pentecost, Things To Come, Grand Rapids: Zondervan
But, it is a grave error to posit another enemy (Gog & Magog) after the ‘Last Enemy’ has been destroyed. Scriptures tell us that Death will be destroyed at the Coming of our Savior Jesus Christ.
"Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death."
- I Corinthians 15: 24-26
IS GOG CHINA ???
Gog is indeed a mystery. Ezekiel places him on an equal footing with Magog, yet he is not mentioned as being a descendant of Japheth in the Table of Nations nor anywhere else in scripture.
Marco Polo, Venetian traveler to the Orient, in the thirteenth century AD, knew that Mungul or Mongol was part of the peoples of Magog. He further understood 'Gog and Magog' to be the names of 'Ung and Mungu' in China (see Polo Travels: 87).The New John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible says:"Gog... it comes from the same root, and has the same signification, as Agag, to whose height and exaltation there is an allusion in [Num 24:7], where the Samaritan and Septuagint versions read Gog: it is the same with , 'Jagog', by which name the Arabians called the Scythians that lived far east, particularly those that were situated to the north of China beyond Imaus, as Golius observes..."
Page 76.WHO IS MAGOG?
Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon, a major authority on the precise meaning of Hebrew and Chaldee words. Gesenius cites Byzantine era writers as a source of historical significance but goes no further back in time for cited references than to 1,000 A.D.
The prestigious Gesenius cites fairly recent writers and thus has no ancient sources for which to make such a claim. This is rather uncharacteristic of the famed lexicographer but it is the case in point for our issue.
We should also note that the some believe the Magogites were Scythians (cited by Jewish historian, Josephus) and are of the Japhetic line. They are believed by historians to be descendants of Gomer through Ashkenas.Josephus wrote "Magog founded the Magogians, called Scythians by the Greeks. Scythians were a nomadic tribe who inhabited the ancient territory from Central Asia across the southern part of ancient Russia." According to him, all these nations originated in the area of Noah's ark.
Strabo, in speaking of the limits of the inhabitable world, mentions "Roxolanians, the most remote of the known Scythians.
The regions beyond the Roxolanians become at once uninhabitable because of the cold; farther south of the Roxolanians are the Sarmatians who dwell north of Lake Maeotis" (Sea of Azov). Roxolani lived in the extreme north shortly before the time of Christ.
They seem to be a rather far-ranging tribe, however, since Strabo describes them as the farthest north of known people, though how far north was not indicated, except that it is not beyond the source of the Dnieper. "Between the Tanais and the Dnieper dwell the Roxolani - dwellers in wagons with tents on them. We don't know if anyone lives north of them."
Hesiod likewise identified Magog with the Scythians and southern Russia in the 7th century BC. Herodotus wrote about the descendants of Magog by their Greek name, Scythian, in the 5th century BC. Philo, in the 1st century, identifies Magog with southern Russia.
Herodotus writes of the bizarre and savage practices of the descendents of Magog.
They drank the blood of the first enemy they killed; they carried the heads of the victims to their chiefs; they scalped their enemies and used the scalps as "napkins"; they used the skins of their victims to cover their quivers; they drank from the skulls of their victims; they practiced blood brotherhood by drinking each other's blood mixed with wine.
The Scythians. "bathed" in the vapor from heated hemp seeds. When their king died, they sacrificed one of his concubines and several servants. After a year, they commemorated his death by sacrificing fifty servants and fifty horses.
PROPHECIES ABOUT THE GREAT WALL
Alexander the Great, while conquering the world, came eventually to the Caucasus Mountains where Prometheus the Titan had been chained long before. Here, the Macedonians discovered the evil hordes of Gog and Magog laying waste to the peaceable
tribes around them. The country of these wicked raiders lay beyond two great mountains named Ubera Aquilonias, the Breasts of the North.
Alexander, calling upon the power of God, moved the mountains together and forged gates of iron and brass to seal the narrow way.
These Caspian Gates were further strengthened with a magic metal called asiceton, which was proof against fire and steel; steel shattered upon asiceton, and whatever fires which touched it were instantaneously quenched.
And further, Alexander built a mighty wall spanning the entire Caucasus range, closing off the civilized south from the forces of darkness.
This wall became known as the Caucasus Wall. But at the end of time, the gates will open and the wall break down, and Gog and Magog will burst forth to destroy the world.
The barrier or wall is the famous wall of Derbent (Darband), once found on the shore of the Caspian Sea (pka Khazar Sea.) Derbent, a town of Persia, Caucasia, in the province of Daghistan, on the Western shore of the Caspian; to the south lies the seaward extremity of the Caucasian wall, 50 miles long, (built by?) later known as Alexander's Wall..
This had a height of 29 ft., a thickness of about 10 feet, and with its iron gates and numerous watch-towers formed a valuable defense of the Persian frontier.
THE KHAZAR EMPIRE
Caucasus Mountains Ancient Assyrian inscriptions refer to the territory as Mushku and Tabal [Gk. - Moschoi and Tibarenoi (the Bible: "Mescheck" and "Tubal") - Louis Baauman, Russian Events in the Light of Bible Prophecy. Philadelphia: The Baalkiston Co.., 1942, pg. 23-25
Here, at the Caucasus, the Muslims ran smack into the empire of Khazaria. This nation, largely forgotten by history, seems to have been peopled by nomadic horsemen descended from the Huns, numerous enough and fierce enough to turn back the Muslims and retain their territory;
at its height, the Khazar empire stretched from the rivers Volga to the Don and controlled the Caspian (then called the Khazar Sea) and the Caucasus mountains and large stretches of the northern coast of the Black Sea.
In or about the time of the Islamic revolution, the people of Khazaria converted to Judaism. And until about 965 AD (after which they vanish from historical accounts) the Jewish Khazars controlled the area around the Caucasus.
It is interesting to note that the GOG-MAGOG alliance comes from the same area where the Ashkenazi Jews, who make up 90% of the world Jewry today, came from.
One of the questions which Hasdai ibn Shaprut [the treasurer, court physician and minister of (Caliph) Abdar-Rahman III (912-961 A.D.) in Spain] asked in his letter to [Khazar] King Joseph was whether the tribe of the Khazar Jews had any connection with the ‘lost’ ten tribes
- that is, the ten tribes of the Tribe of Israel who, as we have already seen, became known as the Israelites (as opposed to the other two, who became known as the Judahites), and who were disowned by the Judahites, and who
'disappeared' after becoming conquered by the Assyrians [in 721 B.C.].
King Joseph categorically stated in his reply that there was no such connection whatsoever.
In providing a genealogy of his people, King Joseph, writes Arthur Koestler in his book, The Thirteenth Tribe, "cannot, and does not, claim for them Semitic descent; he traces their ancestry not to Shem but to Noah's third son, Japheth; or more precisely to Japheth's grandson, Togarma, the ancestor of all Turkish tribes."
The Jewish Encyclopaedia says that the Judaist scholars had no doubt as to the genuineness of this correspondence, in which the word Ashkenazi first occurs as denoting this sharply-outlined, hitherto unknown group of "Eastern Jews" and as indicating Slav associations.
As D. M. Dunlop points out in his book, The History of the Jewish Khazars:
"... When Khazar kingdom began to fragment [in the second half of Tenth century A.D.], and they began to disperse, suffering the same kind of trials and tribulations as had their Sephardhic counterparts as they went. The Ashkenazim spread northwards into Russia, and then westwards into the rest of Europe.
Wherever they went, they met with considerable opposition from the mediaeval European 'Christians' who, because they mistakenly believed that Jesus had been crucified - an event which, ironically, had never taken place - and that the Jews had been partly responsible for that alleged crucifixion, persecuted them as 'murderers of Christ'.
The Khazar Jews had not only inherited the obsolete religion of the Sephardhic Jews, but also the stigma attached to them by the European Christians.?
"It was partly because of this persecution by the mediaeval European Christians that the European Jews were constantly kept on the move, right across Europe and even into Spain, where they were treated with far greater toleration by its Muslim rulers, in accordance with the Dhimma Contract, until the Spanish Inquisition took over.
"The Moors remained in Spain for nearly eight hundred years. When the Spanish reconquest was completed in 1492 the [Sephardhim] Jews, as well as the Moors, were expelled, and the "centre" of Talmudic government was then transferred to Poland.....
"... From the moment when "the centre" was transferred to Poland these Asiatics [the Khazars] began to move towards, and later to enter the West in the guise of "Jews" and they brought Europe to its greatest crisis.
Though their conversion had occurred so long before they were so remote that the world might never have known of them, had not the Talmudic centre been set up among them, so that they came to group themselves around it. ...
When they became known, as "Eastern Jews", they profited by the confusing effect of the contraction of the word Judahite, or Judean, to "Jew"; none would ever have believed that they were Judahites or Judeans. From the time when they took over the leadership of Jewry the dogma of "the return" to Palestine was preached in the
name of people who had no Semitic blood or ancestral link with Palestine whatever." - End Quote
Almost 800 years ago, in 1285, the head Rabbi in Arles, France issued a PROTOCOL to French Jews, in it he said among other things, "Make of your sons, clerics and priests, so that you can infiltrate the Christian church and destroy it from within."
They have been so successful in doing this, that few conservative Christian Seminaries or Bible schools lack a Jewish professor to teach them falsehoods.
"At the turn of the present century, large numbers of the Ashkenazim migrated to America, their land of hope and promise."
In early 1930's the leading Jewish authority in the United States, Rabbi Stephen Wise, was asked his opinion of Communism.
His reply was, "Some call it Communism, I say it's Judaism!" The leading Jewish newspaper in America, "THE JEWISH AMERICAN" in 1919 stated, "What we (Jews) did in Russia through Jewish money and brain power, we will accomplish in the United States."
And just what did they do to Russia? Well, in the early part of the last century, the Jews seized control of the Russian government and immediately began the systematic destruction of the entire ruling class. Forty million people were executed and thousands of others were sent to the Gulag.
Today, thousands of Christian shepherds have become the blind, dumb watchmen of Isaiah 56: 10, 11.
They gather together groups of people to travel to and tour Israel, in the hope that they will go for free. They white-wash all that the Israelis do and make the Christians and Moslems of Palestine out to be ‘terrorists’.
DOES EZEKIEL REFER TO MODERN JERUSALEM OR AMERICA
Ezekiel 38:12 says: "I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land."
According to their 1993 Agricultural Report, the Israelis had less than 50,000 head of cattle in the entire country, which is less than many counties in our west and mid-west.
Ezekiel 38:10 says: "This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme.
11 You will say, "I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people--all of them living without walls and without gates and bars. This is not a description of Israel.
The Israelis are building a huge wall to protect themselves from the Palestinians. I ask you, did Russia build all those neuclar missiles to invade Palestine? NO! They want to plunder America, which does have cities without walls and homes without bars.
Ezekiel 38:8 says: "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."
What nation is there that calls it self "E PLURIBUS UNUM" [Out of many we are one]? The United States of America (and Canada).
RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE PREPARING TO DESTROY THE USA
While the U.S. unilaterally disarms, Russia continues to build its military machine at unprecedented rates.
Intelligence reports indicate that Russia has now built over 60 Typhoon class submarines ("Red Octobers").
These submarines are silent and undetectable by sonar nets. Each has 20 missile tubes; each missile has 10 independently-targeted warheads. They have a range of 5,000 miles and can conceivably reach the United States from their homeports. With all the unrest in Russia, she is more dangerous today then at any time in history.
Russia is currently building a new class of attack submarines which is far advanced of anything else afloat. They have also developed an underwater missile and anti-ship cruise missiles which can be launched by submarine.
Today the area styled Magog, is inhabited by the former Soviet Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and possibly northern parts of Afghanistan.
All of these nations that make up the land of Magog have one thing in common - Islam.
So, then, what is NATO doing helping to underwrite a new security alliance in the area involving five former republics of the now defunct Soviet Union (specifically, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and Moldova) called GUUAM.
According to the Financial Times of London, that's what GUUAM is all about - to, "... develop the area's rich oil and gas deposits to the exclusion of Russia."
With the formation of GUAAM, Russia's expulsion from the Southern Caucasus was all but complete, and the Western Oil Companies began casting their eyes eagerly at the riches in the Northern Caucasus. The key to that area was Chechnya.
The "Chechen freedom fighters" are heavily involved in the smuggling of dope (mainly heroin) from Afghanistan and Pakistan into Europe, and from there on into North America.
Think about what Oil Company greed is doing in the Caucasus: it is drawing Russian military forces down into the Caucasus, and has acted as a catalyst in the creation of a military alliance between Iran (Persia) and the Russian Federation - two of the principal "actors" in Ezekiel 38.
In Feb. 1991, a pact was made between Russia and Iran. Some of the points of this pact are:1. Russia agreed to supply Iran with both materials and world class nuclear and missile experts. They would help Iran build its own nuclear warheads and delivery systems.
Page 81.2. In exchange, Iran agreed not to encourage in any way an Islamic revival in the former Soviet Republics and also not to interfere with Russia’s efforts to put down any such revivals.3. Russia agreed to fight alongside Iran against the West in the event they invaded Iran, invaded other Muslim nations of the region, or sought to interfere with the internal affairs of the Muslim nations of the region.
Russia is heavily committed to arming and training the armed forces of Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Ethiopia and Libya - the very nations (except Syria) listed as allies of Magog.
Today Russia maintains a major buildup of Libya's fourteen air bases with more than five-hundred and fifty Russian combat aircraft. Russia also has positioned a staggering sixteen thousand tanks and armored cars in Libya.
The tank force Libya has, is greater than the tank forces of France, Britain, and Germany combined.
Ezekiel 39:17-20 "Say to the bird of every wing, and to every beast of the field, 'Gather yourselves and come; collect yourselves from all around to my sacrifice which I sacrifice for you, a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, so that you may eat flesh and drink blood.
You shall eat the flesh of the mighty and drink the blood of the princes of the earth...And you shall be satiated at my table, with horses and chariots, and mighty men, all the men of war."
We find this same language in Revelation 19:17,18 "he [an angel] cried out in a great voice, saying to all the birds, 'Come and assemble yourselves to the great supper of God, in order that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of generals and the flesh of strong men and the flesh of horses and those who sit upon them...'"
This is the Great Supper of the Lamb.!!!
Zechariah 14:12,13 "And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem;
Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
And it shall come to pass on that day, that a great panic from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor."
That’s all for this issue friend.
Let us pray as we have never prayed for our people and our leaders that our Father will deliver us from evil.
For the time has come when we must say: "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still."
- Revelation 22:11
