The King of the North is “Gog” -- who is “The 8th King” Who is
“THE ANTICHRIST” -- who is also Satan Who is
Now Ruling the Whole World!!!
May 23, 2021
Satan goes by many Titles in the Apocalyptic Literature of the Bible which explain his role in these End-Times. Such Titles as “the little horn” with “horn” meaning power which portrays Satan going from “little power” to GREAT POWER now that he is ruling the WHOLE WORLD. And he is also called “THE BEAST” – “the Dragon” -- and “THE ANTICHRIST” which are pretty self-explanatory Titles given to Satan. But certainly in this Final Spiritual Battle – Christ REVEALED to Daniel that Satan would be “The King of the North” and Ezekiel saw him as “Gog” – while John refers to him as “the 8th King” who leads the FINAL REBELLION against Christ and those of us in the Kingdom of Heaven who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST.
And to be sure – according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in the True Eschatology of Christ – we today are not only IN the Final Spiritual Battle but hopefully nearing the END OF IT when after Christ thoroughly DEFEATS SATAN and brings his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” down to ruins Daniel and Ezekiel and John all saw in their visions Christ Returning to RAPTURE and DELIVER us at the END of this Great Tribulation!!!
And while I don’t know everything about these End-Times that I’d like to know – I’ve studied “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology for well over 20 years now and I know enough from Christ’s Holy Spirit and His Word to understand that this World is now FAST MOVING to a foreordained – predestined END that Christ prophesied would take place at THE END OF THIS GREAT TRIBULATION!!! And CLEARLY before the World ENDS – Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that 1st everyone in the WHOLE WORLD will be in this Final Spiritual Battle which John called by the CRYPTIC NAMES of “Armageddon” and “the Gog and Magog Battle” in the awesome Book of Revelation. And make no mistake – John saw that this Final Battle occurs between the False Prophets in Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” and those of us who are Christ’s True Prophets in Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven – which means that EVERYONE on Earth is in this Final Spiritual Battle like it or NOT!!! And that’s because there are only 2 SEEDS of Mankind.
For again – like it or NOT – everyone was either chosen to be of THE SEED OF CHRIST or NOT chosen to be of THE SEED OF CHRIST and they therefore remain in Satan’s Kingdom in bondage to Satan and sin for their whole lives. Meaning they are of THE SEED OF SATAN which again is what the unadulterated TRUTH of God’s Word REVEALS – that there are 2 seeds of Mankind.
And according to Christ’s True Gospel – both seeds of Mankind were predestined by Christ to be IN THIS FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE. For it was prophesied that the ENMITY between these 2 seeds would NOT cease until Christ Returns to DELIVER HIS SEED to the New Heavens and the New Earth and to JUDGE SATAN and his SEED. And rest assured that Christ prophesied that won’t take place until the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity.
CLEARLY – we learn from Christ’s Word that from the time of the REBELLION of SATAN in Heaven there has been SPIRITUAL WARFARE raging between these 2 Kingdoms and the 2 SEEDS of Mankind with the Bible being the written record of the Warfare that has gone on. And as I wrote in my last Commentary -- “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that “Armageddon” and “The Gog and Magog” Battle are one and the same Final SPIRITUAL Battle which is the CONQUEST of Christ over SATAN and all Evil!!! In other words – the Final Battle is NOT one or even 2 Military Battles between the Nations of the World fighting over the Holy Land in the Middle East or a NUCLEAR WAR as Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! For in the awesome Book of Revelation John’s 7 visions REVEAL that “Armageddon” is the SPIRITUAL PLACE of Christ’s VICTORY over Satan and ALL EVIL!!!
In other words – The Book of Revelation paints a MAGNIFICIENT GLORIOUS – albeit CRYPTIC and SPIRITUAL PICTURE -- of the CONQUEST of Christ over Satan by showing us a picture of Christ riding forth on the 1stWhite Stallion of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse armed with a bow – adorned with a CROWN – and riding forth in VICTORY!!! And Christ REVEALED through John that He was riding forth on this 1st White Stallion to initiate the Gospel Era which has lasted well over 2,000 years now. And fittingly – John was also shown that the same rider who is CHRIST is NOW TODAY riding forth in JUDGMENT to close this Gospel Era and to put an END to Satan’s rule of this World FOREVER -- along with ALL EVIL!!!!
And that’s clearly THE GOOD NEWS of the Gospel – that Christ is VICTORIOUS over SATAN and ALL EVIL!!! And it’s also WHY in Revelation Chapter 17 Christ assures us of the destruction of ALL FALSE RELIGIONS in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” which John portrayed as “the Mother of Harlots riding THE BEAST SYSTEM” of Satan’s Evil and oppressive Governments that he now rules over in the United Nations!!! And make no mistake – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that the JUDAISM which was the CHRIST-REJECTING False religion that the Pharisees and the Sadducees taught that was responsible for leading so many astray -- along with ALL False Religions that have rejected the Gospel Truth that Christ taught -- will END on the LAST DAY. While True Christianity will go into ETERNITY and will NEVER PASS AWAY!!! For Christ prophesied at the END of His Apocalyptic Discourse these Words of TRUTH: “Heaven and Earth WILL pass away, but My Words will NEVER pass away.”
And not only will JUDAISM along with all other False Christ-REJECTING Religions END soon with Christ’s 2nd Coming -- but all False Religions of every kind including Islam – Mysticism – and all types of Pseudo-Christian Religions will be EXPOSED and brought to utter confusion and destroyed by the power and Grace of God according to what Christ REVEALED to Daniel and Ezekiel and John in their visions of these End-Times BEFORE Christ’s 2ndComing. And this will be accomplished through us True Prophets of Christ teaching the Gospel TRUTH right up until the very LAST DAY. Which is WHY Christ will not RAPTURE us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are of His SEED and The True Spiritual Israel of God until the LAST DAY. For we are here to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of “Armageddon” and “Gog and Magog” right alongside of Christ to bring “BABYLON” down to ruins by EXPOSING the LIES of Satan’s False Religions which includes LIBERAL SECULAR HUMANISM!!!
And now with so much APOSTASY and “falling away” from THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel which is no longer being taught or accepted -- we who are standing up for Christ’s True Gospel are experiencing a time of Great Tribulation to be sure!!! For Christ was speaking of us CHRISTIANS who followed Him during this Great Tribulation when He prophesied: “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. . . . . and when He prophesied: “In fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God.”
(AND THAT TIME IS HERE in this Great Tribulation!!!) (John 16:2)
I realize that there is so much ANTI-SEMITISM going on now around the World which is just WRONG and EVIL. But Christ was prophesying that it was those of us who follow Him that He will bring through the fire and refine us in the trials of this Great Tribulation like silver and test us like Gold as we read in Zechariah 13:8-9. For we are HIS SEED and are those He is coming back to DELIVER AND RAPTURE – NOT “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” who are of THE SEED OF SATAN!!! As a born-again Christian I don’t want to see anyone persecuted or hated – but I also know and BELIEVE that Christ’s True Gospel teaches that only a REMNANT of JEWS and GENTILES have been saved at anytime in Human History. And those that Christ saved are “the saved Jews of the Spirit” saved by His Grace regardless of RACE!!!
CLEARLY – there is much Apostasy today. And when it comes to WHO is part of Christ’s Holy Nation -- Christian Zionists have been DECEIVED to think that ALL JEWS are Christ’s TRUE CHOSEN PEOPLE – which is just NOT what Christ taught when He called MOST of the Pharisees and the Sadducees “the children of the DEVIL”!!! The Jews and Gentiles that Christ determined would be saved out of this World before the foundation of the World are those who make up His SEED and His Holy Nation of the True Spiritual Israel of God. And when Christian Zionists REJECT this teaching – then it is APOSTASY pure and simple.
For Apostasy is the DETERMINED and WIFLULL REJECTION of Christ’s Teaching by Professed Christians. And if you think that Professed Christians aren’t today REBELLING against Christ and His Word – then THINK AGAIN!!! For we are seeing what Christ prophesied would take place before His 2ndComing -- that Satan would be DECEIVING THE NATIONS – even Professed Christians!!! And haven’t Christian Zionists been deceived when they REJECT THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Eschatology which says that EVERYONE will be in the Great Tribulation???!!! And don’t they REJECT the TRUTH of Christ’s Word when they insist that ALL THE NATION OF ISRAEL will be saved or that Christ owes the Land of Israel in the Middle East to “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” as an EVERLASTING POSSESSION???!!! HONESTLY -- that is the CRYPTIC MEANING of this Final SPIRITUAL Battle which is called by the CRYPTIC NAMES of “Gog and Magog” and “Armageddon” – which CLEARLY means
MAN AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
FORTUNATELY – we have “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatologythat tells us THE TRUTH of Christ’s Word -- that His True Gospel will prevail and that the GATES OF HELL will not overcome the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ on Earth today made up of BOTH Jews and Gentiles reconciled together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!! That Satan’s SEED will be DECEIVED – but those of us with THE MIND OF CHRIST will NOT BE DECEIVED into thinking that ALL JEWS are Christ’s only true Chosen people or that any City on this sin-cursed Earth will be spared JUDGMENT – even Jerusalem in the Middle East!!! And so we keep fighting alongside of Christ and defending His Word and Honor. And by MOVING FORWARD IN FAITH we who are Christ’s “Elect” in The True Spiritual Israel of God WILL make it to the END of this Great Tribulation knowing that Christ along with those of us in His Christian Army WIN!!!
The Spiritual Battle That Has Gone on Since The Garden of Eden Has Always
Been Between Christ and SATAN
And CLEARLY -- Daniel understood from Christ that SATAN was also the ONE depicted in the Statue in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. And that the Neo-Babylonian Empire that was the 1st pre-eminent Kingdom depicted by the Statue in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was really under the rule of SATAN– NOT just King Nebuchadnezzar and NOT One Particular Man of the Future – BUT SATAN!!! For CLEARLY with this dream that Christ gave to King Nebuchadnezzar -- Christ was not only recognizing Nebuchadnezzar’s Great Power in this prophecy over the LITERAL Earthly Kingdom of Babylon – but He was also establishing King Nebuchadnezzar as a “type” of someone else who would ONE DAY have rule over ALL the people of the Earth irrespective of where they lived. But THINK ABOUT IT -- the scope of that kind of rule was much wider than any Earthly King had ever achieved in the past or COULD EVER ACHIEVE IN THE FUTURE!!!
In other words -- Christ was using this dream of SATAN in the form of a Statue of a Man to typify the successive Epoch rules of Satan on Earth from Daniel’s Day until TODAY. And that is WHY the real King of Babylon was Satan – NOT Nebuchadnezzar!!! For while King Nebuchadnezzar was the LITERAL King on Earth who represented the Head of Gold in the Statue of SATAN – it was really SATAN that was ruling the Nation of Babylon at that time – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And it is also WHY Satan was really “the Prince of the Medo- Persian Empire” depicted by the breast and arms of silver in the Statue of him along with the other Kingdoms that came after King Nebuchadnezzar. Which is WHY Satan is depicted as “the Prince of Babylon” – and “the Prince of Persia” – and “the Prince of Greece” -- and now “the Prince of The UNITED NATIONS.” For Christ was using the standout Nations of these 4 Epoch rules of SATAN in the Statue of him in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream to convey what Christ later REVEALED to John in his 7 visions – that SATAN’S RULE throughout time is portrayed as “A BEAST with seven heads and ten horns”!!!
And John saw that this BEAST was SATAN who would MAKE WAR with Christ and those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST before the LAST DAY when we read: “ It was granted to him to MAKE WAR with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and Nation. All who dwell on the Earth will worship him, whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation 13:7-8)
This HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE depicts SATAN as BOTH OF THE 2 BEASTS rising 1stout of the “sea of Humanity” and then out of the End-Time Harlot Church when John wrote that “THE BEAST” had: “seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” (Revelation 13:1) But rest assured that SATAN does NOT LITERALLY look like this!!! For this is again CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE and “the 7 heads” represent the TOTAL 7 Epoch rules of Satan since the Fall of Mankind in the Garden of Eden with the last 4 Empires of Satan being -- Babylon – Persia – Greece -- and now the UNITED NATIONS as portrayed in Daniel Chapters 2 and 7.
And CLEARLY -- the “10 horns” is CRYPTIC LANGUAGE meant to represent “10 Kings.” But again -- they are NOT any Particular LITERAL KINGS as Man’s False Eschatology teaches – for in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology they represent the COMPLETENESS of the EVIL POWER upon the Earth which is sourced in “THE BEAST SYSTEM” ruled by “the Dragon” who is SATAN. And we KNOW that they are NOT particular Nations – for Daniel and Ezekiel and John were ALL SHOWN that SATAN would have a continuing rulership of the Governments and False Religions of this World in ALL THE NATIONS of this World until the 2nd Coming of Christ.
And this 4th vision of John that is recorded in Revelation Chapter 13 CLEARLY REVEALS that the unsaved SEED OF SATAN in Satan’s Kingdom are worshipping SATAN through the World System which is also referred to as A BEAST because unsaved Mankind has placed Satan’s Governments on the throne of their hearts INSTEAD OF CHRIST. I mean – think about it – isn’t that what we are seeing TODAY that is happening now at the 2nd Coming of Christ when unsaved Mankind wants the Government to take the role of GOD???!!!
What Christ wanted us to understand with the Statue of SATAN and it’s “10 toes” of the feet that were partly of “iron” and partly of “clay” in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream -- is that the “10 toes” represent the “Kings of the Earth” who are the unsaved Political and Religious Leaders of the UNITED NATIONS along with the Harlot External Global Church of this World TODAY who are now in League with Satan during his Final Epoch rule of this World. And clearly -- we now see Satan and his DEMONS which “the iron” represents -- working through “the clay” -- which is the 2/3 Remnant of unsaved men and women in Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” who are of HIS SEED that are working with Satan to DECEIVE THE NATIONS. And part of that DECEPTION is the goal of the 2030 Agenda and the “Great Reset” of FORCING everyone on Earth to worship Government and the “Elites” ruling these oppressive and corrupt Government as if it THEY WERE GOD!!!
In other words -- the “mingling” of DEMONS that Daniel was shown in the Statue of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream with unsaved Mankind near THE END OF THE WORLD TODAY – is being REVEALED NOW in Satan’s Plan to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and to accelerate GREAT WICKEDNESS on Earth until the 2nd Coming of Christ. And clearly part of that Plan includes the 2030 Agenda under the guise of “Climate Control” -- which should really be called “THE GREAT DECEPTION” – NOT “The Great Reset”!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And what is so very important to understand from “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – is that in this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog” which is also called “Armageddon” – that we are seeing “The Abomination of Desolation” with SATAN and those in League with him NOW RULING THE WHOLE WORLD!!! But FORTUNATELY – it is the prophesied time when Satan will be thoroughly DEFEATED by Christ and His Christian Army on Earth TODAY. And that concerns all of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – for we are NOW IN THIS FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE when Christ has put “the hooks in the jaws” of Satan and drug him out of HELL along with his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS to fight this Final Battle that must occur to fulfill the prophecy of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek!!! And while this is HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – Christ wanted us to understand that “THE BEAST” is none other than SATAN – NOT One Particular Man of the Future!!! And that it is SATAN who will be trying to DECEIVE us “Elect” with his LIES and Doctrines of Demons promoted by his False Prophets!!!
Christ REVEALED that “Gog” is SATAN – and “Magog” is Satan’s Army on Earth Made up of the 2/3 Remnant of This World Who Are NOT SAVED but in League With Satan!!!
FORTUNATELY – we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST have Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions to explain to us that “THE BEAST” called by the name of “Gog” is NOT One Particular Man of the Future as Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly -- but SATAN!!! And we NOW know that what Christ was trying to convey through the infamous dream that He gave to King Nebuchadnezzar was that there was a King in the SPIRITUAL REALM who DID OBTAIN such rule and dominion over the Human Race along with the animal Kingdom that no Earthly King could ever obtain. And that King was of course SATAN who was successful in DECEIVING Adam and Eve in disobeying Christ in the Garden of Eden which led to the FALL of the Human Race and Satan inheriting SPIRITUAL DOMINION over all of God’s creation.
And we know that Satan’s rule of this World will last until this LAST 4th EMPIRE which we are living in TODAY is FINISHED!!! And that it won’t be FINISHED until the END OF THIS GREAT TRIBULATION when it was prophesied that Satan’s Final Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” will be brought down to ruins by the “FINGER OF GOD” just as Christ brought Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire down to ruins in Moses’ Day. And just as He brought King Nebuchadnezzar’s Evil Empire of Babylon down to ruins in Daniel and Ezekiel’s Day. For make no mistake -- these 2 Evil Rulers were both “types” of Satan. And their Evil Empires FORESHADOWED Satan’s Final 4th Empire that Christ is in the process of bringing down TODAY!!!
And while ALL of Mankind FELL in the Garden of Eden – we now understand from what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah -- that He MERCIFULLY chose to save a 1/3 Remnant of this sin-cursed Human Race. And TODAY we 1/3 Remnant who were saved are now living in Satan’s 4th and FINAL Epoch rule of this World that will soon be brought to an END with Christ now dragging Satan out of HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that the WHOLE WORLD is engaged in TODAY to fulfill Prophecy!!!
An Outline of The Infamous “Gog Oracle” Given to Ezekiel
Which Confirms that “Gog” is SATAN – NOT Vladimir Put or Any MAN!!!
HONESTLY – it would be hard to understand these End-Times without understanding the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE that Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel in the HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of today’s Great Tribulation that is outlined in the infamous “Gog Oracle” of Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. For without a doubt -- we are the Apocalypse Generation who are witnessing Christ put “the hooks in the Jaws” of SATAN and drag him out of the Abyss which is HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that is causing today’s GREAT TRIBULATION for us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And one thing we know for sure -- is that Ezekiel saw in his visions that Christ gave to him of these END-TIMES that this Final Spiritual Battle between Christ and Satan must occur BEFORE the Rapture on “The Day of the Lord.”
In other words – both Ezekiel and John saw in their visions of these End-Times that those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” would be engaged in one LAST BATTLE of SPIRITUAL WARFARE when those in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” would MAKE WAR with those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST!!! And Christ REVEALED to both Ezekiel and John that this Final Spiritual Battle would NOT END until the veryLAST DAY of this Present Age of Human History when Christ would END IT at His 2nd Coming!!!
I know this is NOT what those who have accepted Tim LaHaye’s version of Eschatology want to hear– but rest assured it’s “The Rapture TRUTH” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – that we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST will be IN this Final Spiritual Battle and are IN IT RIGHT NOW!!! And the REASON WHY we read that Christ has to drag SATAN out of HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle -- is because Satan would no doubt rather rule this World forever and NOT be drug out of HELL to fight a battle that he obviously KNOWS he can’t win!!! And because he knows his time to rule this World is short – and that he can’t win -- he will LIE and do WHATEVER he has to do to DECEIVE THE NATIONS of where we are on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline to take as many to HELL with him as he can!!!
But THINK ABOUT IT -- while it may NOT be Satan’s will for his rule of this World to END – it is certainly Christ’s DIVINE PLAN and WILL to End Satan’s rule of this World forever. And clearly that is a MAJOR REASON Christ gives us of His 2nd Coming – to DEFEAT SATAN and to DELIVER those of us who are of His SEED in the RAPTURE and then to pour out the FINAL JUDGMENT on Satan and his SEED on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity!!!
But SADLY -- Satan has so thoroughly DECEIVED CHRISTENDOM today about the REAL REASON for Christ’s 2ndComing -- that THE TRUTH about “The Gog Oracle” is not even being taught!!! For so many even Professed Christians have now been DECEIVED by Satan and the False Eschatology of Man to believe that the reason for Christ’s 2ndComing is to save the Whole Nation of Israel En-Masse and then to set up a Restored Millennial Kingdom which will only last a temporary 1000 years on Earth after THE RAPTURE – I DON’T THINK SO!!! That is just NOT what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches AT ALL!!! For Christ’s Kingdom that was inaugurated at the Cross is ETERNAL – NOT one that will last only for a temporary 1000 years which hasn’t even be inaugurated yet –
are you kidding???!!!
It would be ABSURD to believe that Christ’s Kingdom is yet FUTURE and will only last a temporary 1000 years on Earth – which is WHY NO ONE can understand THE CAUSE of Christ’s 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY if they do NOT understand what has become known as “The Gog Oracle” recorded in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. For what Christ meant to convey with this infamous “Gog Oracle” -- was that the Final Events of these End-Times would lead up to the TOTAL DEFEAT AND DEMISE OF SATAN on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. Which is also THE END OF THE WORLD leaving NO ROOM AT ALL for a Future TEMPORARY 1000 year reign of Christ on Earth reigning from a rebuilt 3rdTemple in Jerusalem.
And below is a brief outline of the 4 points recorded in Ezekiel Chapter 38 and several points that are taken from Ezekiel Chapter 39 that REVEAL THE EVENTS LEADING UP TO THE RAPTURE that are taking place RIGHT NOW TODAY!!! But sadly – this is NOT what Man’s False Eschatology teaches by any stretch of the imagination which only proves that “The Gog and Magog” Battle is a FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE of MAN AT WAR with Christ and His Word!!! For the World of Christendom is TODAY sadly under the “STRONG DELUSION” that THE RAPTURE will take place BEFORE this Final Spiritual Battle even begins --
which is A LIE!!!
And to disprove Man’s False Eschatology which Christ obviously knew would be causing this great “falling away” from His True Gospel before His 2nd Coming – Christ had Ezekiel REVEAL these 4very important points that REVEAL the Defeat of SATAN who is “Gog” by Him and His Christian Army that will NOT be RAPTURED until this Final Spiritual Battle is over. In other words -- Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel that Satan’s Army of “Magog” will come against Him and His Christian Army in one Final Spiritual Battle BEFORE the Rapture of the LAST DAY when we read these 4 points that describe:
1) The Conscription of “Gog” who is SATAN – REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:1-9. In these verses Christ wanted to convey the “compulsory enrollment” of Satan’s Army called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Magog.” And clearly – that Army includes ALL of the antichrists and SONS OF PERDITION which make up of the 2/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He never chose to save out of this Human Race recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9.In other words – Satan didn’t choose this Army of “Magog” – he inherited those that Christ chose NOT to save who became part of his Kingdom of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in which they have existed on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence from birth to death.
2) the Motives of “Gog” – REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:10-13 convey to us that SATAN who is “Gog” has a high degree of Scriptural Knowledge – particularly End-Time prophecy when Christ had Ezekiel write of Satan that he was “wiser” than even Daniel and that “no secret was hid from him” as we read in Ezekiel 28:3. And certainly in his rise to power as the “little horn” we are told that he would understand “dark sentences” which refers to “deep and hidden knowledge” of the Bible as we read in Ps. 49:4. And now that he has risen to take his seat as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Apostate External Global End-Time Church described in the Book of Revelation – Satan has ensured that his False Doctrines that most Congregations have adopted today which includes Man’s False Eschatology – appear theologically sound. When in all reality – they are nothing more than the “crafty distortions” of Christ’s True Eschatology of these End-Times!!!
3) the Advance of “Gog” – REVEALED in Ezekiel 38:14-16 definitely prophesies the LAST DAYS of this Present Age of Humanity when Ezekiel is shown that the whole world will be engaged in the Final Spiritual Battle LED BY “GOG” WHO IS SATAN which is causing this GREAT TRIBULATION that we are in NOW!!!
4) the Judgment of “Gog” – REVEALED in Ezekiel 38:17-22 describes Satan’s rise to power as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Church of TODAY when Ezekiel saw in his visions that Satan will use his increased powers to NEUTRALIZE the witness of Christians everywhere by “silencing and killing” the “2 witnesses” that Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 which represent Christ’s True Eternal Universal Church on Earth today. And haven’t we seen THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel been all but cut off causing a time of Great Tribulation for us who are trying
to stand up for Christ’s Word???!!!
CLEARLY -- ALL 3 of Christ’s True Prophets of these End-Times who were Daniel and Ezekiel and John among many other Old Testament Prophets -- were given SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE from Christ’s Holy Spirit that at the END of Satan’s Final 4th Epoch rule of this World that Satan will lead a Final Rebellion against Christ and those of us in “the Camp of the Saints” which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.” And they all understood from Christ that the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE would END by Christ pouring out THE WRATH of His Last 7th Plague upon Satan and his Army of False Prophets before casting them into HELL. In other words – these awesome True Prophets of Christ did NOT see the World ending AFTER Christ PYSICALLY reigned from a LITERAL PHYSICAL REBUILT 3rd TEMPLE in Jerusalem for a LITERAL 1000 years which is Man’s ever so popular but extremely FALSE ESCHATOLOGY!!!
But what they did see was the DEMISE of Satan that is outlined in Ezekiel Chapter 39 as Christ paints a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE for us of the outline of “The Slaying of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:1-8 – and “The Plundering of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:9-10 – followed by “The Burial of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:11-16 and “The Sacrificing of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:17-20. And suffice it to say -- that THE CENTRAL THEME of Ezekiel 39 is the DEFEAT of the False Prophets who are in League with Satan during this “little season” of Satan’s last Epoch rule of this Earth when “Darkness is again reigning” and CHRIST’S TRUTHS of these End-Times are all but being “cut off.” And this cutting off of THE TRUTH will NOT abate until Christ sounds the LAST 7th TRUMPET and steps back into Man’s dimension again which is called “THE RAPTURE”!!! And that’s WHY Christ needs us True Prophets here on Earth to speak HIS TRUTH REVEALED in His True Eschatology!!!
Not only is SATAN the 8th King Leading This Final Spiritual Battle
Causing This Great Tribulation -- But he is
“THE ANTICHRIST” now Ruling the Whole World!!!
CLEARLY -- John saw that we who are part of Christ’s Christian Army on Earth today are those in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” that is being attacked when we read that the 8th King who is leading this WAR against Christ and us in Christ’s Christian Army is also “THE ANTICHRIST” who is SATAN – NOT One Particular Man who hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet – BUT SATAN!!! And make no mistake this is the same FINAL Spiritual Battle that Ezekiel was given a vision of also when Christ had Ezekiel call SATAN by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Gog” which is just what He REVEALED to John -- that “Gog” is SATAN in his 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20. But before Christ LOOSED Satan to fight this Battle going on TODAY – John was given a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of “Gog’s” rise to power as the “8thKing” when John prophesied this about SATAN’S RELENTLESS QUEST to rule the WHOLE WORLD which has come to fruition TODAY:
“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven Kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. (which refers to this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION!!!) THE BEAST that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, (meaning the 8th King!!!) and is of the seven (previous Kingdoms which Satan also ruled!!!), and is going to perdition.” (which prophesies that SATAN will NOT WIN this Final Spiritual Battle going on NOW – for his rule of this Earth will END with Christ’s 2ndComing!!!)
“The ten horns which you saw are ten Kings who have received NO Kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for ONE HOUR as Kings with THE BEAST. (and AGAIN – this CRYPTIC LENGTH of “one hour” is this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Christ has “GIVEN” Satan and his SEED the authority to rule the WHOLE WORLD today!!!) These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to THE BEAST. These will MAKE WAR with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” (which refers to those of us who are of CHRIST’S SEED!!!) (Revelation 17:9-14)
These verses PROVE that both those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN and those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST are in this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY!!! And clearly -- the 4th vision given to John recorded in Revelation 12:7-9 illustrates that “the 7 heads” of “THE DRAGON” symbolize the totality of Satan’s authority throughout time. And that “the 7 Crowns” emphasize his rule throughout Human History. For Satan is “the Prince of this world” and crowns are what goes on the heads of princes or rulers of Kingdoms – RIGHT???!!! So CLEARLY – what Christ was trying to convey to us through King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the Statue of Satan and through Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions -- was that Satan has been the ULTIMATE RULER of all the Kingdoms on Earth. And that the “horns” of this BEAST OR DRAGON in the Bible symbolize power. And while that explains John’s 4th vision – Christ REVEALED even more detail about Satan’s FINAL EPOCH RULE of TODAY in his 6th vision recorded above in Revelation 17:9-14 -- that the reason WHY Satan is LOOSED is to lead his Army of “Magog” in one Final Spiritual Battle that is occurring on Earth NOW which MUST OCCUR to fulfill Bible Prophecy –
THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And of course this “GREAT DRAGON” who is SATAN is further described in CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE when John prophesied the HIGHLY CRYPTIC PICTURE of this “BEAST” who is SATAN when we read: “And another sign appeared in Heaven: behold, a Great, fiery Red Dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of Heaven and threw them to the Earth.” (Revelation 12:3-4)
The Dragon [drakon] -- means a serpent of sight and is something to gaze or wonder after. But CLEARLY this is symbolic language that describes Satan. And Revelation: 9 confirms this TRUTH – that SATAN is the “Red Dragon” or “THE BEAST” of the Book of Revelation. And clearly -- the rest of John’s vision is CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE describing Satan’s rule of this World and of his authority to rule when he gained Spiritual Dominion of this Earth after Adam and Eve fell in the Garden of Eden. And even though this is HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – it can’t be reiterated enough that Christ REVEALS to us through His Holy Spirit that the “seven heads” are “7 Kingdoms” that Satan has previously ruled over. For the “number 7” represents TOTALITY of whatever is in view. And in this case Satan’s rule of this World is in view which Christ REVEALED to John is coming to an END soon AFTER today’s Final Spiritual Battle recorded in his 6th vision in Revelation Chapter 17.
To summarize the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL TRUTH that Christ wanted to convey to us going through this Final Spiritual Battle – the “10 horns” represent “10 Kings” which are NOT LITERAL Kings. For again -- this is CRYPTIC SPRIRITUAL LANGUAGE conveying SPIRITUAL TRUTHS about Satan and his LAST EPOCH RULE on Earth TODAY. And what Christ was painting for us in giving John this 6th vision -- was a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Satan as “the ruler of this WHOLE WORLD NOW!!! And clearly MORE THAN EVER BEFORE SATAN is still “the God of this Age”!!! Which is WHY the “10 horns” and “10 Kings” represent the COMPLETENESS of the EVIL POWER upon the Earth which has been sourced in THE BEAST SYSTEM of SATAN ruled by “THE DRAGON” -- which again is just another CRYPTIC NAME for SATAN. So make no mistake – Christ wanted us who are of HIS SEED to know that IT IS SATAN – NOT One Particular Man of the Future – but SATAN that has had a continual rulership of the oppressive and corrupt Governments and the False Religions of this World since the Garden of Eden!!!
Why NO HUMAN Could Fit the Description of “The 8th King”
REVEALED in John’s 6th Vision and Daniel’s Description of “the little horn”
I often wonder WHY so many sincere Professed Christians today fight so hard in defending Man’s False Eschatology that One Particular Man of the Future who hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History will be “THE ANTICHRIST” -- when Christ gives an OVERWHELMING amount of evidence that demands a verdict that SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST”???!!! But that is what “APOSTASY” IS – it’s the DETERMINED – WILLFUL AND DELIBERATE REJECTION of Christ’s Teachings by a Professed Christian Believer!!! In other words -- it’s the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL MEANING of “The Gog and Magog Battle” that we are in TODAY -- which is MAN AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD about these END-TIMES!!!
And MAKE NO MISTAKE – the APOSTASY today at Christ’s 2ndComing with so many AT WAR with Christ’s True Eschatology -- is FORESHADOWED by the Pharisees and the Sadducees being AT WAR with Christ and His Word about His 1st Coming!!! And CLEARLY at both times SATAN is the One who is doing the DECEIVING – for NO HUMAN could have that much power to control the very hearts and MINDS of Mankind – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
This is WHY Satan is called “THE BEAST” in both the Books of Daniel and Revelation. Which explains the significance of those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN being invisibly marked by Christ Himself with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” and being assigned Satan’s number and name.” For Christ KNOWS that they are against Him being of the SEED OF SATAN and so He has marked them as such – being the DECEIVERS AND BETRAYERS and SONS OF PERDITION that they are just like Judas was!!! And as I’ve written in previous Commentaries -- “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology helps us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST understand that “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” is to signify Satan’s ownership of those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN. And “The name” is to signify that they are part of Satan’s Spiritual family. And lastly “The number” is to signify that their lot in this life is with “THE BEAST” who again is SATAN and the Spiritual Father of the family that they are part of which is SATAN’S EVIL GENERATION – THINK ABOUT IT – for we need to know who it is we are FIGHTING TODAY!!!
And as we read in Matthew 24:34 Christ prophesied that it is Satan and his EVIL GENERATION that we in Christ’s CHOSEN GENERATION are fighting. And this Final Spiritual Battle with Satan’s EVIL GENERATION will not “pass (or END!!!) till all these things (or THE SIGNS of the End and the prophecies of the END!!!) are fulfilled”!!!
In other words – Christ was trying to convey to us who were of HIS SEED that there will always be FALSE PROPHETS and wars and rumors of wars because the 2 SEEDS of Mankind who are AT ENMITY with each other will always be at enmity with each other until the VERY LAST DAY when Christ Returns to pour out the LAST 7TH PLAGUE which is the LAST 3RD WOE on Satan and those of HIS SEED as JUDGMENT!!! And like it or NOT – we in The True Spiritual Israel of God who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST will have to co-exist with Satan and HIS SEED until Christ DEFEATS SATAN in this Final Spiritual Battle!!! And that means that this EVIL GENERATION will be ruling with SATAN who is “THE ANTICHRIST” and now “the 8th King” that is also “the Prince” of his EVIL GENERATION until Christ’s 2nd Coming!!! And to confirm this TRUTH – Christ had John prophesy about Satan:
“THE BEAST that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the Bottomless Pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the Earth will marvel, (meaning they will NOT UNDERSTAND that Satan has even been LOOSED to fight this Final Spiritual Battle or that we are even IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION for they have been BLINDED by Satan who controls their reprobate minds!!!) whose names are NOT written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see THE BEAST that was, and is not, and yet is.” (and rest assured they will SEE Satan meet his END on the LAST DAY and will have all Eternity to regret being in League with Him!!!) (Revelation 17:8)
The meaning of Revelation 17:8 is for sure CYRPTIC – but those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST can see with Christ’s Holy Spirit indwelling us that before Satan was bound by Christ’s Victory over him at the Cross – he was “THE BEAST” that John prophesied “that was” LOOSED before the Cross who was DECEIVING THE NATIONS. But after being BOUND – Christ had John prophesy that SATAN was “THE BEAST’ that “was NOT” then LOOSED anymore to rule the WHOLE WORLD like he was before being BOUND!!! And that made Satan “THE BEAST” who “was NOT” at the time of John’s writing because Satan was BOUND by Christ’s Victory over him at the Cross so that the NATIONS would NOT be DECEIVED and so that Christ could build His True Eternal Universal Church on Earth which is still on Earth TODAY!!!
And that’s where the 8th King comes into being – for John saw in this 6thvision that Satan was “THE BEAST” that was “yet to be”!!! And this prophecy has NOW been fulfilled – for we “Elect” SEE “The Abomination of Desolation” of Satan’s rise to power to rule THE WHOLE WORLD before Christ’s 2nd Coming. And this is happening TODAY at the END now of Satan’s Final 4th Kingdom rule when SATAN is now ruling MIGHTILY just as King Nebuchadnezzar did in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day!!! And unless One Particular Man has been alive on Earth for over 2000 years now AFTER John wrote this description of “the 8th King” – then only SATAN could fit this description of “the 8th King” who is NOW “THE ANTICHRIST” – NOT One Particular Man of the Future!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!
TODAY is Where Daniel was Shown That
“The King of the North” Comes Into Play in This Time of Great Tribulation!!!
CLEARLY -- the rise of SATAN in John’s 6th vision as “the 8th King” is confirmed by what Christ REVEALED to Daniel many years earlier – that SATAN was not only “THE ANTICHRIST” but also “The King of the North.”
There’s a lot to REVEAL about Daniel’s last vision recorded in Daniel Chapters 10-12 – but suffice it to say that the rise of “the little horn” is SATAN’S rise to power TODAY as he comes forth and is AGAIN prophesied to wax exceeding great toward the south -- and toward the east -- and also toward the Pleasant Land which stood for the Nation of Israel in the Middle East during the time of Daniel’s writing. And given that Satan is prophesied as the FINAL Seleucid King of the North depicted in Daniel 11:36–45 -- it is not surprising that his direction of advance is from the north. For what Christ was trying to convey with this CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICUTRE of the King of the North – is that this vast swathe of territory represents ALL OF HUMANITY TODAY. And specifically -- the west to east sweep from Egypt to Mesopotamia represents Satan’s RULE of all the nations which represent the NON-Christian world along with “the Pleasant Land” which TODAY represents his RULE of what used to be considered the Christian world but has since “fallen away” from THE TRUTH. But I’ve run out of room again and will continue with this description of the “King of the North” next time!!! Mary Sullivan
