The WORD of the LORD came to Ezekiel saying Son of man set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. 3 Say, Thus says the LORD GOD, I AM against you Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. 4. I will turn you back and put hooks in your jaws, and bring you and all your army, horses and horsemen, all clothed with all sorts of armour, 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 and all his bands and many people with you. 7 Be prepared yourself to your company assembled to you as the guard to them.8 After many days you will be visited in the latter years in the land after brought back from the sword gathered out of all nations against the mountains of Israel once wasted brought from nations shall dwell safely all of them. 9 To come like a storm cloud to cover the land you and all your bands and people with you. 10 The LORD GOD says it will come to pass, at the time things come to your mind and think an evil thought. 11 And say, I will go to the land of unwalled villages; at rest all safely dwelling without walls, and having no bars nor gates. 12 To take a spoil and take prey to turn your hand onto desolate places now inhabited and people gathered out of the nations to get cattle and goods to dwell in the land.13 Sheba, Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with young lions shall say did you come to take spoil? To gather and your company take prey? To carry away silver and gold to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? 14 Son of man prophesy and say to Gog Thus saith the LORD GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwell safely, shalt thou not know it? 15 Thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, great company , and a mighty army. 16 And shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old-time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years I would bring thee against them? 18 It shall come to pass at the time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, my fury shall come up in my face.15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army. 16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old-time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? 18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 In my jealousy in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel 20 So the fishes of the sea and fowls of the heaven and the beasts of the field and creeping things creep upon the earth and all men are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at MY PRESENCE the mountains shall be thrown down and steep places shall fall every wall shall fall to the ground. 21. I will call for the sword against him throughout all MY mountains, saith the Lord GOD every man’s sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood and I will rain upon him and on his bands, and upon the many people are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD. In Ezekiel 39 thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, Iam against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal 2 And I will turn thee back and leave but the sixth part of you and will come up from the northern parts and bring on mountains of Israel.3 And I will smite your bow out of your left hand and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. 4 Thou shalt fall on the mountains of Israel you and all your bands and people with you I will give you to ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5 Thou shalt fall on the open field for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. 6 I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles and they will know I AM the LORD. 7 I will make MY HOLY NAME known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. 8 It is come, it is done, says the LORD GOD; this is the day I spoke of. 9 They that dwell in cities of Israel shall go and set on fire and burn weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and handstaves, and spears and they shall burn them with fire seven years. 10 So they shall take no wood out of the field, cut down out of the forests for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.11 It shall come to pass in that day I will give to Gog a place for graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea and it shall stop the noses of the passengers and there they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog 12 And seven months the house of Israel bury them, to clean the land. 13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the LORD GOD 14 And men of continual employment, passing through the land bury the passengers of those that remain on the face of earth, to clean it after the end of seven months search. 15 Passengers passing through the land, when they see a man’s bone, shall he set up a sign by it, till buriers bury it in valley of Hamongog. 16 And the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land. 17 And son of man, thus saith the LORD GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to beasts of the field assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. 18 Ye shall eat flesh of the mighty and drink the blood of princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.19 And you will eat fat till full and drink blood till you drunken, of MY sacrifice which I sacrificed for you. 20 Thus you shall be filled at MY table with horses and chariots with mighty men and all men of war says the LORD GOD. 21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all heathen shall see MY judgment I have executed, and MY hand I have laid upon them. 22 The house of Israel shall know I AM the LORD their God from that day and forward. 23 The heathen shall know house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against one, I hid MY Face from them, and gave them into hand of enemies so fell by sword. 24 According to uncleanness and transgressions done to them hid MY face from them 25 Thus saith the LORD GOD; I bring captivity of Jacob for mercy upon the whole house of Israel, jealous for MY HOLY NAME.26 After they bore their shame and their trespasses they trespassed against ME, when they dwelt safely in their land so none makes them afraid. 27 When I brought them again from the people and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; 28 They know I AM the LORD their God who caused them to be led in captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them anymore there. 29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon house of Israel saith the Lord GOD.Bible prophecy says they will fail and invaders trying to reach Jerusalem fall on mountains of Israel and in open field Ezekiel 39:4,5. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) play a part in the war but receive supernatural help from God of Israel’s attack of invaders: “I will strike your bow from your left hand and dash down your arrows from your right hand” (Ezek 39.3). And defeated by extreme weather, “With pestilence and blood I will enter judgment with him; and rain on him, on his troops, many peoples with torrential rain, hailstones, fire and brimstone. I will magnify Myself sanctify Myself to make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know I am the LORD. Ezekiel 38: 22-23 says defeat is through fire and brimstone like Sodom and Gomorrah (Ezek 38.22,23), and extreme snowfall (Job 38.22,23) and a great earthquake in Israel (Ezek 38.19) for total defeat and humiliation of God’s enemies in the sight of many nations. Israel starts to know God as HE pours His Spirit on the House of Israel to know I AM the LORD their God from that day for war for I shall have poured out My Spirit on her Ezekiel 39:22,29 God’s anger is kindled against invading armies of Gog, Ezekiel 38.18 so HE fights for His people Israel. Not all nations join Gog and Magog. End-time prophecy says districts north of the Black Sea have 100 mud volcanoes releasing methane gas reaching surface resulting in fire flashes and explosions. Volcanic action of the earthquakes in Ezekiel 38.19 releases more gas ignited in ‘fire on Magog.Timing of the Gog-Magog War Scripture reveals invasion is a separate invasion to the ‘battle of Armageddon’ to occur before Armageddon. Timing is around start of last seven years of Daniel’s 70th Week after the agreement of peace with many people for seven years in Daniel 9.27 ‘peace’ covenant is broken. The invasion is before revealed secular dictator ‘beast’ of Revelations 13.1 and antiChrist of Revelations 13.11 around start of 70th week for the seven-year covenant. Invasion before the 70th week of Israel seven years uses Gog’s weapons as fuel (Ezek 39.9,10) before they suffer in GREAT Tribulation under beast of Jacob’s trouble Jeremiah 30.7. Invasion occurs around time of rapture of true church before or few years after rapture. Israel living securely refers to Jews returned to Israel where they find safety from hostility e.g. antisemitism in Gentile nations (Ezek 38.8, 39.26). These dispersed Israel never feels safe among Gentile nations except in own land. God warns rebellious Israel: Among those nations is no rest … the LORD will give you trembling heart … your shall fear day and night in Deuteronomy 28:65,66.God defeats Israel’s enemies, Jerusalem will be inhabited without walls because of multitude of men and cattle within it in Zechariah 2.4 Ezekiel 38.12 says land is blooming due to Israel’s advanced agriculture. Timing of Gog-Magog war against Israel could be before the final world dictator but after dispersed Israel regathered back into their land and are safe from hostility of Gentile nations in Ezek 39.27,28. The true church may well see this invasion before rapture. Aliyah continues with millions of Jews residing in Gentile nations. Jewish population is 14.2 million, of which 6.2 million (44%) resided in Israel. It is an important thing to remember personal salvation is the most significant miracle of God in Christ. God uses hailstones, fire, sulfur, floods earthquakes to subdue Israel’s enemies forever.
Genesis 10:1-32 These generations of sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, Japheth born after the flood. Sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, Tiras. The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. Sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. From these coastland peoples spread in their lands, each with his own language, by their clans, in their nations. Havilah descends from Ham, Genesis 10:7 other from Shem, Genesis 11:29. Canaan is a son of Ham and are Canaanites ancient Palestine between Jordan and Dead Sea, Mediterranean, including Transjordan Promised Land of Israel after delivery from Egypt subjugation. The land had a number of pre-Israelite peoples listed in passages in Bible. 1 Chronicles 1:13–14 Jebusite is a third son of Canaan. Jebus and Heth in Ezekiel 16:3 an Amorite was father and mother Hittite. Jebusites of Canaan driven out by the Israelite in Genesis. 15:21; Ex. 3:8, 17. Jebusites inhabit Jerusalem in Joshua. 15:63, & 18:28. Judges 19:11 the Jebus first half of 14th century b.c -13th century tribes of Israel in Canaan. Is City in 2 Samuel 5:6- 10 confident lame or blind defends city. And I Chronicles 11:4–9 Joab enters Jerusalem Jebusites by way of the water system of gutter “Warren’s shaft” leads to pool of Siloam. Jebusite inhabitants not all destroyed because David bought the threshing floor from Araunah the Jebusite to build altar (ii Sam. 24: 18–24) and David may have Jebusite craftsmen and officials in his service.
Bible texts on Tarshish coastland site is location bearing name of son of Javan, a grandson of Noah, of ancient “coastland peoples in Genesis 10:1-5. Descendants of Javan lived in coastal areas from Asia Minor across Mediterranean to Greece, Macedonia, Spain to Sardinia, Atlantic coast, from England to Africa. (Tower of Babel, Bodie Hodge, 2013, pg. 165. Tarshish exist by the 10th century trade from location in time of King Solomon 970-931 BC and Phoenician king Hiram. in 1 Kings 10:21. Tarshish well-known 6th century BC. Jonah there in reigns of King Uzziah, who ruled 792-740 BC, and Jeroboam II, who ruled 793-753 BC. in Jonah 1:3. Isaiah wrote of place in the 8th century BC in Isaiah 23:1-12; 66:19. In Jeremiah after 627 BC in Jeremiah 10:9. Ezekiel after 593 BC in Ezekiel 27 : 12. Tarshish is known for trade in gold, silver, ivory, apes, peacocks and in King Solomon imported in 1 Kings 10:21; and 2 Chronicles 9:21. Tarshish is known for silver, gold in Jeremiah 10:9. Known for silver, iron, tin, lead in Ezekiel 27:12. Tarshish from Israel trading took three years return trips seasonally prevailing winds in 2Chronicles 9:21; 1Kings 10:21. Travel took years to acquire goods from distant Tarshish and Phoenician traders smelt and sell silver and gold. Ship of Hiram king of Phoenicians at Tyre from 969-935 BC 1 as stated in Kings 10:21.In 2 Chronicles 9:21 Tyre Lebanon Israel and Phoenicians ships work together in 1 Kings 10:21; 2Chronicles 9:21 Tarshish accessed ships into Ophir from Red Sea Ezion-geber ships built by Israel again in 1 Kings 22:48; 2 Chronicles 20:36-37. Tarshish sourced gold from Ophir by kings of Judah and Israel, Jehoshaphat, Ahaziah on voyages of trading routes in Solomon era. Tarshish ships from Joppa Tel-Aviv Israel to Mediterranean Sea. So Jonah on ship to Tarshish from Joppa in Jonah 1:3. East winds affect ships in the Mediterranean Sea in Psalms 48:7. The wealthy own the “ships of Tarshish.” In Solomon’s time in 1 Kings 10:21 brought gifts of gold, silver in Psalms 48:7, Isaiah 23:1. Tarshish in ancient world named, “Tharsis,” “Tarsis,” “Tarsus,” “Tharros,” “Tarshish” Semitic root word “smelt,” Tarshish smelting town, refined metals. There was Tarsus in Cilicia, Asia Minor Tartessus on Bay of Gibraltar Carteria. Tarshish smelting is wellknown Isaiah talks of the “land” of Phoenician cities of Tyre and Sidon refers to Tarshish in Isaiah 23:1-2. Sheba and Dedan Arabian ancient plunderer Tarshish, inhabitants of isle of city Tartessus merchants went to Antiochus before expedition bargain for spoils of Jews when passing through. So Sheba and Dedan join Arabia and merchants of Tarshish Tyrians and Zidonians trade by sea. Tarshish is signified as Tartessus in Spain traffic of people of those places trading by sea to foreign parts with young lions pirates, for their cruelty and voraciousness. The Targum paraphrases it, all the kings thereof; and Kimchi kings and princes are meant; Septuagint says villages; Syriac version is cities take spoil join to partake booty of gathered company together to take prey, carry away silver and gold, take away cattle and goods, to take great spoil Turks raise an army for raids: cattle, goods, silver and gold. God gathers them to join Sheba merchants against God’s people for ill-gotten spoil of invaders of God‘s people. Envy and their greed for gain ungodliness in 1 Maccabees 3:41 lure young lions, daring princes, leaders gather to destroy but it is God who defeats them. So Sheba in southeast contains all of coasts assisting Gog. Dedan in Saudi Arabia East nations assist. Tarshish of sea-coast westward of Magog north. The young lions young men thirsty of blood and spoil join in to possess, and to carry away what they all seize silver, gold, cattle, goods, company to take prey. Merchants of Tarshish trade with the African coast. We can gather this from 1 Kings 10:22; 1 Kings 22:48; 2 Chronicles 20:36, Ezion-geber, mentioned in these verses, would not be a port from which ships sailed to Sardinia or Spain. Saudi Arabia and East Africa standing by ready to trade in spoils of people of God they are ready to benefit from what happens. There earthly support for God’s people needs God’s direct intervention to stop ‘the young lions’ waiting, eager and ready to seize the prey, like a lion pack circling their victim. Dedan is the son of Raamah, son of Cush, son of Ham, son of Noah in Genesis 10:7. The second Dedan is son of Jokshan ancestor of Asshurim, Letushim and Leummim in Genesis 25 :3 called the Dedanim or the Dedanites. The Bible names Dedan son of Raamah in Genesis 10:7 descendants in Isaiah 21 :13, Ezekiel 25:13, Ezekiel 27:15 settled among sons of Cush, on the north-west coast of the present Persian Gulf. Son of Jokshan son of Abraham and concubine Keturah in Genesis 25:3 in 1 Chronicles 1:32. His descendants settled on Syrian border territory Edom and pastoral life. Dedan or Lihyan is the name of the city-state of north-western Arabia, modern Al-‘Ula. In Isaiah 21:13 and Ezekiel 27:15 Dedanim, Dedanites trading people. The Dedan in Ezekiel 27 and 38 is a trading partners of city of Tyre today in modern Lebanon. Dedan was nation or kingdom traded in saddle blankets in Ezekiel 27:20. Mentioned in prophetic vision war of Gog and Magog Ezekiel 38, Revelation 20:8 significant in end-times prophecy of Ezekiel 38:13 so Dedan joins Sheba and “Tarshish strong lion nations join to inquire of advancing armies of Gog: “Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver, gold, take away livestock and goods and seize plunder?” Israel in the present day not defenceless unwalled without, bars nor gates of powerful defences, not dwells securely is constantly on alert. God established everlasting land in Ezekiel 37:26-28 of great movement of God’s Spirit through two Witnesses Moses and Elijah now a large number of Israel recognise Jesus as Messiah in New Israel. Two witnesses in Jerusalem in Revelation 11 means the literal physical and spiritual fulfilment. The Muslim threat against Israel source of the monotheistic religion spoken of in Revelation in worship of beast from Abyss in Revelation 16:12-14; Revelation 17:11-13;Revelation 19:19-21 to destroy the people of God. Russia is part of the enemy by antiChrist actions against the believers. Gog and Magog join hostile nations of world against Israel in anti Semitism. Revelations 19:11-21:8 on Gog & Magog Chapters 19:11–21:8 in Book of Revelation says at the end of 1st century AD satan is imprisoned for a thousand years and on release will rally nations in four corners of the earth. Gog and Magog to a final battle with Christ and his saints will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the Earth to gather them for battle in number like the sand on seashore. Gog and Magog in two places in Ezekiel 38:1- 39:16 and in Revelations 20:7-11. Ezekiel’s prophecy doesn’t give precise timing for Gog’s attack other than in latter years. John’s revelation is places Gog’s invasion at the end of the 1000-year reign of Messiah. If Gog and Magog won’t show up another thousand years other bible scholars say Gog will attack Israel before Yeshua is back as conditions needed to provoke attack in Ezekiel’s prophecy depict the threat to peace of Messianic Age. Ezekiel describes Israel restored from sword so the inhabitants living securely, without walls, having no bars or gates.” Type of peace security prior to Yeshua’s coming and destroying antiChrist evil world system Revelations 19:11-21. The anti-Christ tricks Israel to accept the false peace plan but Israel will not dismantle nuclear deterrent, Iron Dome defense and world-class army and air force. Israel security is good but God’s supernatural intervention will end the war in Ezekiel. Prophecies fulfilled for unprecedented peace and security in Israel after Gog/Magog invasion. Start in chapter 28: 24, 25 as security starts after scattered Israel comes into own land, all her enemies ‘who scorn them’ will be no more. God’s holiness is be manifested in the sight of all the nations. The LORD God supernaturally intervenes by use of earthquakes to reclaim HIS LAND and restore HIS CITY and rule through Jesus the KING of Kings on earth forever. And Ezekiel says thousands of generations of Abraham’s descendants will own their land and dwell together in peace in the New Jerusalem. God HIMSELF Comes down eventually to dwell among men in Israel. God takes back His City forever from all those fighting over it for years. GOD said in Philippians 2:10-11 that at the Name of Jesus Christ Yeshua HaMashiach every Knee shall Bow, of things in Heaven and things on earth and things under the Earth; And every Tongue Confess that Jesus-Yeshua Christ-Messiah is LORD to the GLORY of GOD the FATHER.
In chapter 34, the scattered ‘sheep’ of both Israel’s two kingdoms regathered, with the descendants of Judah all living under one Shepherd Messiah Jesus. God will will make a covenant of peace with them…and they will live securely and no one will make them afraid in v. 25. Harmful animals eliminated so people may sleep in woods lion and children play safely. In chapter 37 the prophecy says reunion of Judah and Israel under “My servant David.” And “I will make a covenant of peace with them” in Israel entering her Millennium rest with “…My sanctuary in their midst forever and God builds New Temple.” That brings us to chapter 38 Gog summoned “after many days” to attack “the land restored from the sword” and those “who are at rest.” This describes the millennial Reign of Messiah when “the wolf will live with the lamb” in Isaiah 11:6. And “nations will not lift up sword against nations, and never again learn war in Isaiah 2:4 till satan let loose in end-time peace and security reunion of Judah and Israel. Zionist Christians and Jews in reunion prophetic gains by Gog and Magog war two Biblically prophesied wars before final return of Jesus Christ. America is used by God to defend and to protect Israel with other nations. So Gog and Magog war and Armageddon battle have differences in two battles. Gog and Magog war take place in the Mountains of Israel while Armageddon battle will be in valley of Megiddo. Armageddon battle involve all world nations while Gog and Magog war is selected nations led by Russia. So China is not in Gog and Magog war but in Armageddon battle. The anti-Christ is in Armageddon battle but not in Gog and Magog battle. Jesus Christ stands on Mount Olives at end of Armageddon battle but not Jesus Christ physically in world in Gog and Magog war but prophetic timing Armageddon battle happen at age Jesus Christ return to judge in Millennium Reign. And Gog and Magog war after satan is released. Ezekiel prophesied Gog and Magog war with Russian multitude coming against Israel. In Ezekiel 38:8: After many days you shall be visited in the latter years into the land brought back from sword, gathered out of nations in mountains of Israel. The latter years are not end years return of Jesus Christ. The Latter years are different from End times so Ezekiel 38:16 in the latter days will bring thee against MY land so heathen will know God is sanctified in Gog before their eyes. Ezekiel specifies Gog and Magog war will take place in the end years in the end days Israel regathered given their father’s land Ezekiel 38:8: After many days you shall be visited: in the latter years you shall come into land brought back from sword against the mountains of Israel and dwell safely. Ezekiel prophesied Israel is regathered given fatherland before Gog and Magog war. Israel regathered to Abraham land May 15th 1948. So Mountains of Israel stopped being desolate in waste and is inhabited in Ezekiel 38:12. And Ezekiel prophesied that Gog and Magog war is when Israel dwells in safety. Ezekiel says Israel in Ezekiel 38 :8, 11 ‘betach’ means feeling safe false confidence and security. False feeling of safety in Israel safer than 70 years of captivity. Israel land unwalled villages go to them at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates. In the ancient times of Ezekiel in history until 1900 AD all villages and cities in Israel had strong walls. Ezekiel not seen village, city without defensive walls. Israel today lives in unwalled villages but 400+ miles wall separates her and portions of West Bank keeps terrorists shooting into Israel. Rest of Israel dwells in unwalled villages of no walls, bars or gates. Israel is prosperous wealthy as a nation is the reason why Russia and company are coming against Israel to take spoil, prey, cattle goods to carry away silver and gold. To take spoil, take a prey…gathered your company to take prey in Ezek 38:12-13. Israel’s wealth is a prosperous nation, Ezekiel prophesied multiplication after rebirth in Ezekiel 36-37. Israel is most blessed nation on earth today with great prosperity. Her wealth, Israel includes massive reserve natural gas on coast of Haifa. Great Tribulation period of 7 years period is revealed in Daniel 70 weeks prophecy. In Gog and Magog war, those dwelling in the cities of Israel cut no wood out of the field for fire for 7 years set fire with weapons of Russian great company. Those dwelling in cities of Israel set fire, burn weapons, shields, bucklers, bows, arrows and the handstaves, spears and burn them with fire seven years in Ezekiel 39:9-10. God timing accurately says 7 years. Ezekiel talks of those who dwell in the cities of Israel not only Jews but all who dwell in the cities of Israel, Jews and non-Jews. It means use of weapons as their firewood shows war ends in GREAT Tribulation period is 7 years. Gog and Magog war does not happen inside 7 years GREAT Tribulation period but happens before the GREAT Tribulation 7 years period of last years to return of Jesus Christ and in last years to the Millennium Reign. Nowhere in the Bible does people in the Millennium reign use weapons of Gog and Magog war as firewood. 7 years period of using Gog and Magog war weapons as firewood possibly is the 7 years of GREAT Tribulation period as others think so. Spiritual awakening of Israel sees God in action defeating all Israel enemies for their sake. Israel will acknowledge Jesus Christ as Saviour as when the two witnesses evangelise with 144,000 Jews from 12 tribes of Israel. So blindness of Israel lasts until end of the fullness of the Gentiles in Romans 11:25 before an Armageddon battle. In GREAT Tribulation period Gentiles enters God’s kingdom trampling down Jerusalem to the end in the Armageddon battle. God’s enemies in Luke 21:24; Matthew 24 shall fall by the sword led captives to all nations after Jerusalem is trodden by Gentiles till time of Gentile fulfilled. The Jews accept Jesus Christ they pierced as their Messiah at end of the Armageddon battle. Zechariah 12:10, I will pour upon house of David, and upon inhabitants of Jerusalem, Spirit of grace, supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and in bitterness for Him in bitterness for his firstborn. Israel is not going to come to faith in Jesus Christ by grace. Israel under Old Testament law before Spiritual awakening so Israel will lead Old Testament style of worship, rebuild Third Temple and Gog and Magog war prophecy, Ezekiel prophecies building of Third Temple. The War of Ezekiel 38–39 or The War of Gog and Magog is attacking restored land of Israel. God makes HIS PRESENCE known through earthquake, torrential rains, hailstone, fire, sulfur destroying Gog and Magog. Following defeat of Gog. God establishes New Temple to DWELL forever with HIS people in chapters 40-48. Message is fearsome an enemy is under the control of the God of Israel, who says to Gog, “I will bring you against my land. Ezekiel called “Son of man” in Hebrew: בן־אדם – used 93 times for Ezekiel. So “Rosh” (Hebrew: ראש as “head” (of human “top” of mountain; “beginning” of time “chief-prince,” or “chief-priest,” is head of family or nation leading them to battle against God WHO defeats them all Supernaturally using hailstones, fire, sulfur, floods, earthquakes to subdue Israel’s enemies forever. Psalms 20:7 says “some put trust in chariots and in horses but we trust and Remember the NAME of LORD GOD for VICTORY.
