Where is Gog…and its relevance?
At times, I have studied Bible prophecy. Usually I have come away thinking to myself that this is something in the distant future….and who knows anyway what these veiled predictions mean? All the language of the Holy Scriptures, especially in Ezekiel or Revelation are even more difficult to understand. One of my college courses was Bible Geography and I remember the old words of “Gog and Magog” being described as the land now known today as Russia, but maybe not Russia.
Yet, the Scriptures says that God was against Gog….and we ask who Gog is…and where does God come from? What relevance does this have to our modern, not Biblical world? (“Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. Thus says the Lord, God Behold I am against you…” Ezekiel 38:3,4) The man of evil is what it is referring to in the prophecies.
As we look at our world’s situation and learn of the brainwashing of the children (by Hamas) and the call to the young…even Americans…to join ISIS, it may be time to time to look at prophecy a little closer…and how close is this man of evil.
There are two videos that I would like to share.
Video 1: The first part shows the beautiful part of Syria and Damascus as it used to be and now what it is today from all the bombing and violence. Don’t think our beautiful cities and buildings could not look like this some day if we allow evil to come to our shores. I also show this video to let the reader see the sad indoctrination of the children of Palestine through television and cartoon characters. I think we, in the West, will be amazed that such is actually being taught to the young and impressionable.
The video 2 below explains that Gog and Magog may actually be Turkey. As we know Turkey is now the hotbed of extremism and training of terrorists. (Whichever video you choose to watch, click back to watch the next…for all have valuable, up-to-date information.)
What about our own U.S.A? It appears that there is a goal on the part of some to promote Subversion in our country if you have watched the news lately. We need to wake up as a nation and think about what is happening here as well as other parts of the world. Gog and Magog may have more relevance to us and our children than we think.
Subversion has at least three stages:
- Demoralization of the Nation
- and then a take over of private citizen’s rights which will be considered Normalization
Remember that God has told us something very important in 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
