Israel violence not Magog, but keep an eye on Turkey


Many are pointing to passages in the Bible in connection with the current violent conflict in Israel that has brought the Middle East to the precipice of war. Like layers of an onion leading to the core, the violence is a type and shadow of prophetic fulfillment, but it is not the Magog War. We can see, however, that certain players are edging closer to the actual Ezekiel 38 prophecy where Gog of Magog leads Islamic nations against Israel in a colossal end time battle where only the return of the Messiah saves the remnant of Israel from total destruction. We now see how modern day Turkey is coming closer into the prophetic obit as prophesied in Ezekiel.{pub}To read this entire article, please register and it will be opened up to you{/pub} {reg}  

Ezekiel 38:3 says, “And say, Thus saith the LORD YHVH; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” Ezekiel goes on to prophesy that Gog will lead Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, Togarmah, Sheba, Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish against Israel. Gog is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Magog, Meshech and Tubal were part of the Assyrian Empire located in modern day Turkey–as was Tarsus, Gomer, and Togarmah. Sheba and Dedan were located in what is now Saudi Arabia. Persia is Iran. Ethiopia is Sudan and Eastern Northern Africa. Libya is Western Northern Africa. There are many ancient maps on the internet and in libraries that independently verify this. One is below:

As Israel is attacked by the terrorist group Hamas, the Occupant of the Oval Office has called on the Prime Minister of Turkey and the President of Egypt “about steps that could be taken to bring an end to the violence.” These were chosen because they have a relationship with Hamas and the other terrorist groups in the Middle East. Egypt’s Morsi is from the Muslim Brotherhood, which serves as a uniting umbrella for the terrorist organizations. Turkey’s Erdogan is considered a major player in representing the Islamic side of “reason.” But Turkey’s involvement is prophetically significant and the US President elevating Turkey to be a main broker of peace plays directly into the Ezekiel end time prophecy.

Meanwhile, we see yet another aspect of this prophecy. All these nations are coming against Israel. Yet the Ezekiel coalition is not yet complete as we see it today.Turkey, with ancient roots from the Assyrian Empire including Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, Magog, and Togarmah that point directly to the leadership of Gog, is also being pulled into the orbit of the Syrian rebellion as the violence increases. Turkey long has been building diplomatic credibility since the Islamic Caliphate ended in Turkey in 1922. This was the last empire that ruled over the vast majority of nations mentioned as coming against Israel in the end times, leading many to believe that a revived Islamic Caliphate is antichrist empire.
