Some 2600 years ago the Jewish prophet Ezekiel stated his people would be scattered across our world and return home in the Last Days. (Ezekiel 36:24 & Ezekiel 38:8)
What are these nations called in our modern world which will launch an attack upon Israel?
Well, Gog is the Russian leader who will reside from Meshech (Moscow), Rosh is Russia and Tubal is the Tobal river region in Siberia. (Ezekiel 38:2) Western Magog is the Ukraine and Eastern Magog is Kazakhistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. (Ezekiel 38:2)
Persia/Iran, Ancient Ethiopia/Sudan, Modern Ethiopia and Phut/Libya are all regions outside Russia. (Ezekiel 38:5)
Gomer/Gomel=Belarus & Togarmah=Turkey,Azerbaijan,Georgia and Armenia. (Ezekiel 38:6)
It is now September 17, 2014. Iran is boosting the economies of 10 former ex-Soviet Republics out of the original 15. Iran is not developing trade with Moldova or the Ukraine. Iran also is not developing trade with the three nations of Estonia, Latavia and Lithuania nations in NATO.
What is Iran doing? It supporting the economies of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhistan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
(1)Russia has a military alliance called CSTO with (2)Armenia,(3)Belarus,(4)Kazakhistan,(5)Kyrgyzstan,(6)Tajikstan and (7)Uzbekistan and when Turkey leaves NATO, Turkey having a military allaince with (8)Azerbaijan and(9)Georgia only leaves (10)Turkmenistan out of the military alliance.
This prophecy is developing in front of our very own eyes. Why are so many churches not preaching Bible prophecy when we see these events happen before us?
People are destroyed by lack of knowledge. Perhaps if the enemies of Israel would know the prophecy fewer soldiers would march against Israel knowing they will perish upon the mountains of Israel. (Ezekiel 39:1-4)
God has wrath in the Gog/Magog war (Ezekiel 38:18-19) God has not appointed Christians to wrath. (1 Thessalonians 5:9) The rapture occurs (1 Thessalonian 4:16-17) before the Russian Gog/Magog war.
Its after the Gog/Magog war the 7 year tribulation occurs as there are so many people who are killed in the Gog/Magog war the world cries peace (1 Thessalonians 5:3) and its in time of peace the anti-Christ will destroy many.
