“The Gog and Magog” Battle is Taking Place Now
Which is Why It is so Important to Understand
The “Gog Oracle”
That Christ Gave to Ezekiel
March 6, 2022
In this Week’s Commentary I pray that I can show with the help of Christ’s Holy Spirit how “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in His True Eschatology prophesies that EVERYONE in the World is TODAY in the “Gog and Magog” Battle because it is the Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES that is prophesied to take place at the End of this World. And according to Christ’s True Eschatology it takes place between those of HIS SEED called His “Elect” in His Kingdom of Heaven – and those of SATAN’S SEED many of whom we now call the “Global Elites” who want to rule this World with Satan in his Spiritual Kingdom of
“Babylon the Great.”
And while Christ had John call this Final Battle by the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL NAMES of “The Gog and Magog Battle” and also “Armageddon”-- they are one and the same Final Battle which is a SPIRITUAL BATTLE that is being fought in Christ’s own Congregation over what His True Gospel and Eschatology teaches about the Kingdom of Heaven and Salvation. And clearly – His True Gospel teaches us “Elect” that He is at THE CENTER OF ALL BIBLE PROPHECY and that “Armageddon” is the SPIRITUAL PLACE of His awesome Victory over SATAN and ALL EVIL!!!
And since Christ is at the Center of ALL BIBLE PROPHECY and NOT the Nation of Israel which the popular Eschatology of Man teaches today – it only stands to reason that this Final Spiritual Battle is NOT fought over the land that the Nation of Israel is sitting on which is also NOT the Promised Land. For it is the New Heavens and the New Earth that Christ has waiting for us now that is the Final Estate and Promised Land of those of us that Christ has saved!!! But how soon Christ is going to RAPTURE us “Elect” to this Promised Land is a question that is on the mind of ALL of us Christians to be sure!!!
And many are now confused how this War in Ukraine and Russia fits into Bible Prophecy because there is a GREAT DIVIDE that exists in Christendom today over which Eschatology Christ actually taught – whether it was Amillennialism or Pre-Millennialism. And that’s serious -- for knowing where we are in Bible Prophecy will determine if we understand Christ’s DIVINE PLAN or NOT!!! For there’s absolutely NO understanding of these End-Time Events without knowing what Eschatology that Christ actually taught since both of these Eschatology’s teach a very DIFFERENT END of the story of this Human Race!!!
And there’s no denying that after the tremendous success of so many Prophecy Books that have taught a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation that Dispensational Pre-Millennialism is hands down the Eschatology that most of the 660 Million Evangelical Christians today have bought into – or at least the 80 or more MILLION who read Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind Series” anyway!!! And whether the Christians who believe in this Eschatology realize it or NOT – Dispensational Pre-Millennialism does NOT hold to the Covenant Theology that Christ taught. Which is really hard to believe since to confirm this New Covenant with His “Elect” was the reason WHY Christ came and WHY He said at His Last Supper: “For this is My blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 28:26)
And because Covenant Theology was so important to Christ – that is WHY we read in Hebrews that Christ came to set aside the Old Covenant and to establish the NEW Covenant with “the many” of us in His Book of Life which is just what we read prophesied in Daniel 9:27. And that His confirming this New Covenant with us “Elect” is what has led to us being “made Holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once (and) for all” as we read in Hebrews 10:10. For this New Covenant is so important to being saved that Christ promises that those of us who He has confirmed it with have had “His Laws written in our hearts and our minds” by Christ HImself so that “our sins and lawless acts” will be remembered no more” (which I would say is a really IMPORTANT REASON WHY we “Elect” should believe in Covenant Theology!!!)
Covenant Theology teaches that there is only ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST made up of Old and New Testament Saints who ALL have a New Covenant Relationship with Christ. And that when Christ came as “the Messiah the Prince” recorded in Daniel 9:27 – it was to FULFILL the promise of this New Covenant – which was INDEED FULFILLED in the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy. And since Dispensational Pre- Millennialism teaches that there is a distinction between the Nation of Israel and the New Testament Church and that these two bodies will remain separate until AFTER the 70th Week of Daniel – they do NOT teach Covenant Theology as being an important part of Christ’s True Gospel. And that in and of itself is WHY Dispensational Pre-Millennialism is NOT the True Eschatology of Christ – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
HONESTLY -- because there is such a GREAT DIVIDE over which Eschatology Christ actually taught -- that is WHY so many Christians are now confused over whether the War between Russia and Ukraine is “The Gog and Magog War” – or just leading up to a Future Military Battle that will be fought between the Nations over the Land of the Nation of Israel in the Middle East which will THEN be “The Gog and Magog War”???!!! And that’s WHY it is so important to understand that Christ taught through Ezekiel and then John that “The Gog and Magog Battle” is the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE being fought in Christ’s own Congregation today over what His True Gospel and Eschatology teaches!!! And since Dispensationalists teach that The Nation of Israel is at the Center of ALL BIBLE PROPHECY – they teach that “The Gog and Magog Battle” centers around the LITERAL Nation of Israel – NOT “The Spiritual Israel of God” as Christ teaches.
SADLY -- Dispensationalists have fallen for THE LIE that ALL JEWS are Christ’s “Chosen People” which He will never “cast out” when Christ prophesied: “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” (John 6:37) But to believe that Christ was talking about ALL JEWS would make His Word through Paul A LIE when Paul wrote from Christ that “they are NOT all of Israel who are from Israel” recorded in Romans 9:6. For only a remnant of Jews at any time in Human History have ever been saved by Christ just like only a REMNANT of Gentiles have ever been saved. And that’s WHY the prophecy of Christ coming to turn godlessness away from Jacob and to restore the Nation of Israel has ALREADY TAKEN PLACE – for the “Jacobs” that Christ loves are us “Elect” that were chosen by Him to be saved out of EVERY NATION and race on Earth. And that’s who makes up His Holy Nation that will “by no means be cast out”!!!
If “The Gog and Magog Battle” is Taking Place NOW
How Does The Russian and Ukraine War Today Fit Into Bible Prophecy???!!!
Dispensationalists teach that it is in the 7 year Tribulation Period that “THE ANTICHRIST” who they say is “Gog” will attack the Nation of Israel – and that will be what Christ had Ezekiel call “The Gog and Magog Battle.” And many Dispensationalists now are saying that from what is happening in Ukraine -- that Vladimir Putin could very well be “THE ANTICHRIST” who is “Gog.” And what that means to most Dispensationalists -- is that the Pre-Trib Rapture is really close!!!
But HONESTLY -- 2 questions that Christians should be asking today are: 1) “What does Christ’s True Eschatology teach about “The Gog and Magog Battle”???!!! And 2) “Does Russia play a major role in the End Times by leading an attack of the former Nations of the Soviet Union against the Nation of Israel????!!!” For that is what so many of the “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of today who are Dispensationalists are teaching – that Vladimir Putin could very well be “the King of the North” in Daniel’s 4thvision recorded in Daniel Chapter 11!!! And if Vladimir Putin really is “THE ANTICHRIST” – then is Pat Robertson right when he said on the 700 Club recently that “Russia's invasion of Ukraine is setting the stage for the entire region to declare war on Israel and thus fulfill Bible Prophecy”???!!! For he reminded his viewers that Ezekiel Chapter 38 describes “Gog” who comes from the land of “Rosh” or Russia to attack “the Land of Israel” at the End of time.
I don’t mean to be disrespectful – but I think Pat Robertson and his Dispensational Colleagues have the WRONG Israel in mind!!! For “The Spiritual Israel of God” that Christ formed before the foundation of the World is made up of the 1/3 Remnant of this World that He chose to save which are people from EVERY Nation and race. And clearly -- that is the only Holy Nation that Christ has ever had which is NOT the Nation in the Middle East!!! Christ’s Holy Nation is called “The Spiritual Israel of God” in the Bible. And it this HOLY NATION of Christ that Satan and his Army of “Magog” is coming against TODAY in what is the Final Spiritual Battle that Christ had both Ezekiel and John call by the CRYPTIC NAME of “The Gog and Magog Battle.” In other words – it is Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where we “Elect” exist on Earth in our saved soul existence that is
being attacked by SATAN!!!
For as I wrote in my last Commentary -- if we understand what Christ Himself was teaching and is STILL TEACHING TODAY – then we KNOW and understand that as a Nation THE JEWS at Christ’s 1st Coming no longer represented Christ’s True Covenanted Kingdom people. For the O.T. Congregational representation of the Kingdom of Christ ENDED with the Judgment at the cross – for not all Israel were saved and resurrected when Christ rose from the dead. And one can’t believe THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel if they do NOT believe or just REFUSE to believe as Dispensationalists do – that the N.T. Congregation of the Lord from the time of the Resurrection until TODAY is now represented by the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ on Earth that He chose before the foundation of the World.
And while Dispensational Pre-Millennialism teaches that ALL JEWS are Christ’s True “Chosen people” which includes the 15.2 MILLION JEWS today around the Globe who do NOT think that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME -- this Commentary is based on the Eschatology that as a born-again Christian I’ve come to understand through Christ’s Word and His Holy Spirit is the Eschatology that He and His Disciples all taught which is Amillennialism. And that Eschatology teaches that “not ALL Israel is of the Nation of Israel” just as Paul wrote for Christ recorded in Romans 9:6. And just as Daniel prophesied – Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME which we read written in Daniel 9:27!!!
CLEARLY -- Amillennialism differs from Pre-Millennialism in that it maintains that the present Millennial reign of Christ based on what John wrote in Revelation 20:4-10 began with His ascension to reign from the Throne of God in Heaven. And CLEARLY -- Amillennialism teaches correctly that the Gospel Truth that the Apostle Peter was prophesying in Acts 2:30-32 was that Christ at that time was restoring His Kingdom by His death – resurrection -- and ascension to the Throne of David. That Christ doesn’t have to come at the END of this World TODAY to restore His Kingdom that was inaugurated AND RESTRORED at the time of His 1stComing which again FULFILLED the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy!!! And that’s WHY the TRUE GOSPEL that Christ sent His Disciples into all the World to preach was that He was reigning from that point FORWARD in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” with all of us “Elect” that He had chosen to save
who were part of His Restored Millennial Kingdom.
Amillennialism correctly teaches that Christ made a “Covenant with Abraham that his seed would inherit His Kingdom” --which again is WHY Covenant Theology is so important to believe is the True Eschatology of Christ!!! For as Christ told Abraham this Covenant would be EVERLASTING which we now understand was the New Covenant of Grace that was FULFILLED at the time of His 1st Coming. For it was at His 1st Coming that Christ inaugurated His Kingdom and restored the rightful heirs of His Kingdom by resurrecting the souls of us “Elect” when He was resurrected. And since Christ said that Abraham was to be the Father of MANY Nations – NOT just the one Nation of Israel – at the time of the Cross a REMNANT from every race and Nation were restored as the rightful heirs of His Kingdom by His dying for the sins of the 1/3 Remnant out of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved. And that is WHY Paul prophesied from Christ that all of us “Elect” who are “the saved Jews of the Spirit” automatically had a New Covenant Relationship with Christ if He chose to save us when Paul wrote: “ If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (speaking of course of the Promise of Eternal Life!!!) (Galatians 3:17)
Paul was talking to GENTILES while he preached the True Gospel in cities like Galatia. And rest assured that he was telling them that the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week prophecy had been fulfilled by Christ Coming as “the Messiah the Prince” to save even the Gentiles from our sins like he was telling the Gentiles in Galatia. And we KNOW that Paul was telling those Gentile Converts that Daniel 9:27 was a prophecy insuring them that Christ was confirming His New Covenant of GRACE with each of them which takes away sins – which was NOT just a prophecy for THE JEWS but for them also as Gentile Converts in Galatia. And those who BELIEVED that TRUTH were obviously “Elected” by Christ to be saved BEFORE the foundation of the World just as Paul told the Ephesians as we read in Ephesians 1:4.
CLEARLY -- Paul and none of the Disciples taught that Daniel’s 70th Week was a LITERAL 7 years that is just for THE JEWS and that it wouldn’t be confirmed by Christ until AFTER the Church had been Raptured in a Pre-Trib Rapture – A MILLION TIMES NO!!!! They all taught that the whole New Covenant period would go from the time of the cross to the CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Kingdom on the LAST DAY which is just what Daniel 9:27 prophesied.
When by contrast -- the term “Pre-Millennialism” describes the ever-so-popular Eschatology that most Evangelical Christians hold today that teaches that the 1000 years prophesied in Revelation Chapter 20 is the Kingdom reign of Christ that has NOT even been inaugurated or restored yet. This Eschatology teaches that Christ will return bodily and rule from the LITERAL THRONE of DAVID on Earth in a rebuilt 3rd Temple that is in the process of being built today.
And while Amillennialism teaches the importance of the New Covenant because it takes aways sins and is the prerequisite needed to enter Heaven for BOTH the Old and New Testament Saints – Pre-Millennialism teaches that Christ does NOT have just ONE TRUE BODY OF BELIEVERS and that the Covenant of Daniel 9:27 is NOT the New Covenant of Grace that Christ has made with the many of us “Elect” in His Book of Life – but a Future Covenant made with “THE ANTICHRIST”!!!
So how does the Russian and Ukraine War fit into Bible Prophecy???!!! Although TRAGIC and heartbreaking – I’m praying that the War in Ukraine will force Professed Christians to take a look at which Eschatology they have come to believe is TRUE. For only Christ’s True Eschatology is going to be FULFILLED!!! And believe me – I’m not trying to downplay the importance of the situation in Ukraine – for it’s serious alright and WHY Christ said of this Great Tribulation that if He hadn’t cut these days short for us “Elect” that there would be no one left to RAPTURE as we read in Matthew Chapter 24!!!
And that’s because we are at a point in Human History when Nations have WMD’S -- and getting involved in a War today between Nations who have Nuclear Weapons could very well mean the annihilation of the whole Planet. That’s WHY the correct way to look at this situation is through a Biblical Worldview. And while Satan and his “Global Elites” have their “2030 Agenda” – Christ has an Agenda too. Satan has always wanted to be GOD and to be worshipped as God – but HE IS NOT GOD – CHRIST IS!!! And His DIVINE PLAN is to thoroughly DEFEAT SATAN BEFORE the Rapture.
That’s why the “Gog Oracle” which covers Ezekiel 38 and 39 is about SATAN and NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future or even Vladimir Putin today trying to take over Ukraine. And it’s also WHY the demise of Satan is outlined in Ezekiel Chapter 39 as Christ paints a 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 rest assured that Christ was NOT having Ezekiel write about Vladimir Putin -- but SATAN!!!
HONESTLY – it just can’t be reiterated enough that THE CENTRAL THEME of Ezekiel 39 is the DEFEAT of SATAN and his False Prophets and especially those we “Elect” now call “The Global Elites” who are in League with Satan during this “little season” of Satan’s last rule when he has been LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD and to fight this
Final Spiritual Battle.
The True Meaning of “The Gog and Magog” Battle Is
That it is the Final Spiritual Battle of MAN AT WAR With Christ And His Word
About These End-Times!!!
CLEARLY – to be a reflection of Christ’s Light in this Spiritually Dark World that grows darker by the minute – one has to be teaching the TRUE GOSPEL and Eschatology of these End-Times that Christ taught. So again – the question is “Are Pat Robertson and his Dispensationalist Colleagues right about Vladimir Putin being “THE ANTICHRIST” – and is this War in Ukraine leading us into the Gog and Magog Battle after a Pre-Trib Rapture – or are we IN THE FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE that Christ had John call by the CRYPTIC NAMES of “The Gog and Magog Battle” and “Armageddon” NOW ???!!!!”
Which leads me to write about yet another very important difference between the Amillennialism that Christ taught and the Dispensational Pre-Millennialism that is being taught today. For Dispensationalists teach that “The Gog and Magog Battle” and “Armageddon” are 2 entirely separate Military Battles fought over the Land that Jerusalem sits on that Dispensationalists think is the EVERLASTING possession of THE JEWS in the Nation of Israel.
In other words -- Dispensational Pre-Millennialists believe that the battle of “Gog and Magog” that Christ had Ezekiel prophesy occurs in the 7 year Tribulation period after the Pre-Trib Rapture of the Church. So of course they don’t think the “Gog and Magog” is HAPPENING NOW!!! But that it will most likely occur in the 1st Half of the 7 years of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy. And that it involves the Future “ANTICHRIST” which many Dispensationalists now believe could very well be Vladimir Putin with all the turmoil going on with Russia taking control of Ukraine by force!!!
And in addition to Dispensationalists teaching that “The Gog and Magog” Battle takes place in the 7 years of Tribulation when Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is being fulfilled for THE JEWS – they also teach that the Covenant mentioned in Daniel 9:27 is a Covenant of Peace that “THE ANTICHRIST” will make with THE JEWS that takes place AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture of THE CHURCH and BEFORE the Great Tribulation. That “THE ANTICHRIST” will break the Covenant of Peace that he has made with the 15.2 MILLION JEWS who are Christ’s “Chosen People” in Jerusalem and around the World TODAY and will then stand up in the rebuilt 3rd Temple halfway through the 7 year Tribulation Period and
DECLARE HIMSELF TO BE GOD!!!
Dispensationalists believe that the reason WHY The Nation of Israel will make this Peace Covenant AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture – is because they think that this ONE PARTICULAR MAN will bring Peace to an unstable Middle East and the rest of the World which they also believe is who Ezekiel’s “Gog Oracle” calls “Gog” who is from “Rosh” or Russia. And that when he breaks this Covenant of Peace prophesied in Daniel 9:27 – that’s WHEN “the Battle of Gog and Magog” begins – just prior to the midpoint of the 7 years of Tribulation. And it’s also WHY Dispensationalists do NOT think that the War in Ukraine now with Russia is “The Gog and Magog” War but they teach that “Gog” who is “THE ANTICHRIST” could very well be Vladimir Putin.
And Dispensationalists like Pat Robertson teach that Putin doesn’t have just Ukraine in his sights -- but the Nation of Israel as well which he recently said will fulfill the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 of “Gog” attacking the Land of Israel when he will be defeated by God Himself on the mountains of Israel. And that it will take a LITERAL 7 MONTHS to BURY ALL OF THE DEAD prophesied in Ezekiel 39 BEFORE the World can get back to normal and finish out the rest of the 7 year Tribulation Period. But they teach that “Gog” will definitely be DEFEATED in this Battle when we read:
“‘On that day I will give Gog a burial place in Israel, in the valley of those who travel east of the Sea. It will block the way of travelers, because Gog and all his hordes will be buried there. So it will be called the Valley of Hamon Gog. “‘For seven months the Israelites will be burying them in order to cleanse the land.” (Ezekiel 39:11-12)
CLEARLY -- Dispensationalists teach that the Battle of “Gog and Magog” is centered around the Nation of Israel who they say is AT THE CENTER OF ALL BIBLE PROPHECY. But that this Battle of “Gog and Magog” is NOT the Battle of “Armageddon” which they say is waged against SATAN HIMSELF at the end of Christ’s temporary reign for a 1000 years on Earth in the City of Jerusalem which takes place AFTER the 7 year Tribulation period. And after this Millennial reign of Christ for a 1000 years -- Dispensationalists teach that Satan will be LOOSED to fight the Battle of Armageddon. But that Christ will quickly put down Satan’s rebellion and permanently Judge Satan by casting him into the Lake of Fire as He did with “THE BEAST” who is “THE ANTICHRIST” and his False Prophet who fought “The Gog and Magog Battle” during the 7 year Tribulation Period when “Gog” was defeated also.
But make no mistake – this Eschatology depends on the 1000 years in Revelation 20:7-10 being a LITERAL 1000 years and the 7 years of Tribulation of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy being a LITERAL 7 YEARS!!! And that “Gog” is “THE ANTICHRIST” who fights against the Nation of Israel during the 7 years of Tribulation while SATAN is the one fighting against Christ in the Final Battle of “Armageddon” AFTER the 7 years of Tribulation and after the
1000 Millennial Future reign of Christ.
HONESTLY – all I can say after explaining that rather long and CONVOLUTED description of what the Eschatology of Dispensational Pre-Millennialism teaches – is “Does anyone REALLY BELIEVE ALL OF THAT”???!!! For those who believe in this False Eschatology are CLEARLY AT WAR with Christ and His Word about these End-Times – REALLY!!! This is WHY over 20 years ago Christ started showing me in His Word and through His Holy Spirit that He taught the Eschatology of Amillennialism – NOT Dispensational Pre-Millennialism. And that He REVEALED to both Ezekiel and John that SATAN is who He had them call by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Gog.” And that it is SATAN that He has been fighting since before the foundation of this World and is TODAY fighting in this “Gog and Magog” Battle which is one and the same Battle of “Armageddon”!!!
Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS That There Is Only One Final Battle
Before He Comes to Rapture us “Elect”
And That we are in it NOW!!!
CLEARLY – Christ taught what Amillennialism teaches -- that there is only ONE FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE – NOT 2!!! And that this one Final Spiritual Battle is taking place NOW TODAY at the END of Satan’s Final 4th Epoch rule of this World. And while Dispensationalists would have the World of Christendom believe that “Gog and Magog” represent the land of Russia and their Communist Dictator of TODAY who will soon invade the Nation of Israel – John confirms that “Gog” is SATAN and that his Army is made up of the 2/3 Remnant of unsaved people that he has today DECEIVED to be AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD about these End-Times.
In other words -- The Conscription of “Gog” who is SATAN – is REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:1-9 which teaches that 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. And who are TODAY being led by Satan to MAKE WAR against Christ and those of us in Christ’s Kingdom. For make no mistake -- John saw in his 7th vision that SATAN is leading the Final Rebellion that we “Elect” see happening now TODAY recorded for us to read in Revelation Chapter 20 when we read:
“Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan (NOT Vladimir Putin – but SATAN!!!) will be released from his prison (which is HELL where he has been BOUND for the whole Gospel Era now of almost 2000 years so that Christ could finish confirming His New Covenant with everyone in His Book of Life!!!) and will go out to DECEIVE THE NATIONS which are in the four corners of the Earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. (so “Gog” who is SATAN gathers this Army called “Magog” from all over the Globe – NOT just from Russia or China and Iran!!!) . . . . . .
“They went up on the breadth of the Earth and surrounded the Camp of the saints and the Beloved City. (which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” – NOT the LITERAL City of Jerusalem in the Middle East!!!) And FIRE came down from God out of Heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the Lake of Fire and brimstone where (he as) THE BEAST and the False Prophet are (also thrown!!!). And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” (emphasis mine in parentheses!!!) (Rev. 20:7-10)
And the question of the Day for every Professed Christians should be – “Have we Christians been preaching for almost 2000 years that Christ is a King that has NO KINGDOM YET???!!! For that is what Dispensationalists believe -- that Christ hasn’t inaugurated His Millennial Kingdom yet and hasn’t yet restored His Nation of Israel. But just THINK ABOUT IT -- WHY would Christ wait to inaugurate His Kingdom until now at the END OF THE WORLD???!!! And is He inaugurating it for just THE JEWS to reign with Him as His True Chosen People???!!! You see how convoluted this False of Eschatology of Man is????!!! And Satan has even been able to DECEIVE much of Christendom that HE IS NOT “THE ANTICHRIST” who has been is AT WAR with Christ since before the foundation of this World – but that ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future called “Gog” is who Christ is REALLY AT WAR WITH – UNBELIEVABLE!!!
While Eschatology which is the study of the Kingdom of God and His DIVINE PLAN concerning the last or final events of History can be a very complex subject for most Christians to understand – rest assured that Christ wanted us “Elect” to KNOW that He has a Kingdom and that we “Elect” have been reigning in it with Him as our KING since His Ascension!!! That if we trust in His Holy Spirit – then He will lead us into all TRUTH about these End-Times.
For the HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL TRUTHS of the Apocalyptic Literature of the Bible contained in Books like Daniel – Ezekiel -- and The Book of Revelation are very spiritually profitable and rewarding for the conscientious Christian to know and believe which Christ WANTS US TO BELIEVE. And that’s WHY Christ has put a PASSION on my heart to write these Commentaries for Him which are based on “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology which is “AMILLENNIALISM” – NOT PRE-MILLENNIALISM!!!
Rest Assured That Christ is Just as ANGRY Today
With Those Teaching LIES That The Church Will NOT Have to Go Through
The Great Tribulation as He was with Hananiah in Jeremiah’s Day!!!
HONESTLY -- we are living in times when there are so many Hananiah’s that are making Christ’s Congregation trust in LIES that He must be FURIOUS!!! And every time there is a catastrophic Weather Disaster around the Globe – REST ASSURED it is taking place as a WARNING to the Hananiah’s of TODAY that The Final Day of Judgment is right on the Horizon now for their teaching His Congregation to trust in LIES!!! But sadly every WARNING is “out of mind” as soon as it is “out of sight” and people just go back to “REFUSING to believe their LYING EYES”!!! That’s WHY every time I read a Commentary that a “so called” World Renown Bible Prophecy Expert writes who says this is NOT the Great Tribulation or who promotes the False Eschatology of Man based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism -- my heart SINKS!!!
And the words that Christ gave to Jeremiah to speak to Hananiah just ring in my ears as being more true today than ever when Christ sent Jeremiah to tell Hananiah that His Old Testament Congregation would FOR SURE have to go through 70 years of Babylonian Captivity for their unfaithfulness. That time of Judgment FORESHADOWS THIS TIME OF JUDGMENT in today’s Great Tribulation. For Christ is Judging the Hananiah’s TODAY for teaching His Congregation to trust IN LIES when we read:
“Go and tell Hananiah, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord: “You have broken the yokes of wood, but you have made in their place yokes of iron.” For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of all these Nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon; and they shall serve him. ( and rest assured that he was a “type” of Satan which the WHOLE WORLD is having to serve TODAY as JUDGMENT and punishment for our unfaithfulness!!!) I have given him the beasts of the field also.” ’ ” (no Earthly King could have such dominion over the Animal Kingdom – which is WHY this has to have a CRYPTIC MEANING of those who Christ has NOT saved that have “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” invisibly written upon them by Christ Himself as John saw in his 7 visions!!!)
“Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, “Hear now, Hananiah, the Lord has NOT sent you, but you make this people trust in A LIE. Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will cast you from the face of the Earth. This year you shall die, because you have taught rebellion against the Lord.’ ” So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.”
And today Satan has deceived many to think with an unsound reprobate mind like Hananiah – for he was going against the VERY GOD OF THE UNIVERSE – NOT just the God of Israel in teaching Christ’s Congregation to trust in LIES which cost him his life that very year – THINK ABOUT IT – that’s serious!!! And TODAY Satan through cleverly distorting THE TRUTH of Christ’s Gospel Satan has DECEIVED many Professed Christians about these End-Times just like he deceived Hananiah and then the Pharisees and the Sadducees.
And just as Christ prophesied -- this “falling away” from His True Gospel has resulted in “The Abomination of Desolation” of Satan being LOOSED to NOW rule the WHOLE WORLD which will lead to the desolation of MANY when we read from Paul: “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe A LIE: That they all might be DAMNED who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2nd Thess. 2:11-12) And John confirms what Paul prophesied -- that Christ is the one who has NOW poured out the 1st 2 of the LAST 3 WOES which are SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS and are also the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments for teaching His Congregation to believe in LIES about this Great Tribulation that Christ prophesied EVERYONE on Earth would be in!!! And sadly while Dispensationalists try and teach the LIE that the 1000 years in Revelation Chapter 20 is to be taken as THE LITERAL number of years that Christ will reign on the Earth AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture and AFTER the 7 year Tribulation when “THE ANTICHRIST” who they say is “Gog” will begin the “Gog and Magog” Battle – the Greek Word for “thousand” is [chilioi] – and is in the plural form and can mean an uncertain length of time or number.
And that is the way that Christ intended it to be used -- to illustrate an unspecified length of time that the Gospel Era would last when Satan has been BOUND before being LOOSED today to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. For rest assured that Christ is NOT tooooooo interested in notifying Satan and those of HIS SEED – many of whom are “The Global Elites” trying to rule the WHOLE WORLD with SATAN!!! -- of the precise actual length of time which Satan is bound. In other words – we “Elect” know the start of SATAN’S binding was at the cross. But it is to be a mystery to the unfaithful that he is even LOOSED today so that they will be “taken by surprise.”
And that is WHY Christ prophesied that the 2/3 Remnant of this World who are NOT SAVED but belong to Satan will be eating and drinking -- marrying and giving in marriage – and going on with life as usual and will be unaware that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION. And isn’t that just what we see happening today – “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts telling God’s people NOT to believe their “lying eyes” – that this is NOT the Great Tribulation???!!!
Christ Had Ezekiel REVEAL Where The Infamous “Land of Magog” Is
And WHO “The Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal” is
That He Had Ezekiel Call “Gog”
CLEARLY -- we “Elect” living today in this Great Tribulation can see how evil the day has become with Satan and his “Elites” wanting to RULE THE WHOLE WORLD by enforcing their TRYANNY upon all of us around the Globe with their “Great Reset” and Evil 2030 Agenda. That this Game Plan of SATAN is no less than a Social/Communist/Marxist/Fascist take-over of this World that Satan plans will be ruled by him and his “Elites” under him!!
This time of GREAT TRIBULATION is not only “the Day of Evil” but the time when “THE GOG ORACLE” that Christ had Ezekiel prophesy would be FULFILLED!!! And that’s WHY it is so important for us “Elect” living today going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION to know that “Gog” is identified as “the Chief Prince” of Rosh – Meshech-- and Tubal – who Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel was SATAN – NOT Vladimir Putin!!!
But while Vladimir Putin is NOT “Gog” -- there is NO DENYING that Satan is using Vladimir Putin today to lead an Army that now has NUCLEAR capabilities of starting WWIII which would be a NUCLEAR WAR that could end in the annihilation of the whole Planet if the conflict with Russian and Ukraine continues to escalate. But Putin is NOT ALONE in Satan’s Army called “Magog” -- HARDLY!!! For there are a great number of “Elites” intent on enforcing “the Great Reset” which is also PURE EVIL!!! And so Satan has a VAST ARMY all around the Globe INTENT ON EVIL –
NOT just Putin!!!
And as I wrote in my February 8th Commentary – it’s important to understand that Meshech and Tubal were the 2 sons of Japheth. And that Japheth was one of the 3 sons of Noah who survived the Great Flood as we read in Genesis 10:1-2. But what many Christians may not know is that Noah’s 3 sons were Shem – Ham – and Japheth who helped to repopulate the World after the Great Flood. And that from Shem came the Jewish and Arabic Nations – and from Ham came the Babylonians – Assyrians – Canaanites – Egyptians and Africans. And lastly from Japheth came the coastland people which essentially was the rest of the Gentiles who spread throughout the Earth. And of Japheth’s descendants Genesis 10:5 prophesies: “By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their Nations.”
And what Christ wanted us “Elect” to understand was that by saying that “Gog” is the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal who were the 2 sons of Japheth – He was underscoring that SATAN rules over the Gentiles who are considered the unsaved peoples of the World in the Bible. In other words -- the word “gentile” in the Bible stands for those who are NOT “the saved Jews of the Spirit” or the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved out of this World -- but are “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” who represent the 2/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 that would NOT BE SAVED. And what Christ was having Ezekiel prophesy was that He was against SATAN AND HIS SEED who were “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh.” And that He gave Ezekiel the “GOG ORACLE” to foretell of the RUIN of “Gog” and his Army of “Magog” at
the End of this World!!!
CLEARLY -- the infamous “Gog Oracle” REVEALS that Christ’s ULTIMATE DIVINE PLAN is to steer “Gog” who is SATAN to his ruin by pouring out the Last 7 Plagues which have been going from partial to complete since John penned the Book of Revelation for Christ – all the while growing in INTENSITY until the Final 7th Plague will be poured out on the LAST DAY!!! And clearly the “Gog Oracle” REVEALS that while “Gog” who is SATAN will be utterly destroyed and DEFEATED in today’s Final Spiritual Battle – until the LAST DAY “Gog” will be successful in his quest to SUBVERT the True Eternal Universal Church’s Witness. And isn’t that just what we see happening today when only those that have “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” can “buy and sell” – meaning only their voices are being heard and the voices of us “Elect” are being “killed and silenced”???!!!
The Israel That “Gog” Who is SATAN is Coming Against Today
is “The Spiritual Israel of God” – NOT The Nation of Israel!!!
CLEARLY – just as Nebuchadnezzar came like a whirlwind against Christ’s Unfaithful Nation of Israel in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day – so “Gog” who is SATAN is TODAY coming against the END-TIME HARLOT CHURCH!!! And neither the unsaved in the Congregation of God – nor the unsaved in the Nations around the Globe in the United Nations are aware that this Final Spiritual Battle is now taking place because they have been BLINDED AND DECEIVED by Satan!!!
THANKFULLY – Christ REVEALS more about “Gog” who is SATAN and his Army of “Magog” in the “Gog Oracle” when we read in Ezekiel 38 that “Gog” will not venture forth alone – but will have 5 allies that will join His Army in this Final Spiritual Battle. And when we read of these 5 allies starting with Persia or Elam – it is just what Christ REVEALED also to John in his 6th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 18 – that Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon will FALL and that his Army of “Magog” will be destroyed. And clearly -- Isaiah Chapter 21 which speaks of “Elam” also records the FALL OF SATAN’S KINGDOM OF BABYLON. And the 5 Allies that join SATAN are again Persia or Elam – Ethiopia which is “Cush” -- Libya called “Put” – and Gomer along with the House of Togarmah when we read:
“Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops -- the many Nations with you.” (and they come from the North because SATAN is the prophesied “King of the North” – NOT Vladimir Putin!!!) (Ezekiel 38:5-6)
And before you say: “ THEN WHO ON EARTH DO THESE 5 ALLIES REPRESENT ON EARTH TODAY”???!!! Just remember that after the Great Flood that Noah’s 3 sons – Shem – Ham – and Japheth repopulated the World. And it needs to be reiterated that “Elam” was a son of Shem – and “Cush and Put” were sons of Ham – while “Gomer and Togarmah” were the 2 sons of Japheth. And it is clearly seen that what Christ was trying to convey -- was that ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD will be confederated to SATAN’S CAUSE of bringing WORLDLINESS into the End-Time Church which he has successfully done TODAY with so many Professed Christians not even knowing what
THE TRUE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IS!!!
These 5 allies who join the Final Spiritual Battle are EXTREMELY important in understanding the CRYPTIC MESSAGE of these End-Times in explaining WHO is in this Final Spiritual Battle that must take place BEFORE THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY!!! For “Gomer and Togarmah” represent the NORTHERN extreme of the World that was known to the Nation of Israel when Ezekiel wrote the “Gog Oracle” for Christ. And Persia represented the EASTERN extreme of the World – while “Ethiopia and Libya” represented the SOUTHERN extreme of the World known to the Nation of Israel. And what is important to understand is that after the Cross the “TRUE SPIRITUAL ISRAEL OF GOD” became THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST of us “Elect” saved from ALL of the races and Nations of this World by Christ who make up Christ’s Christian Army today. And that the 5 allies that join “Gog” or SATAN’S ARMY represent “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” which are the 2/3 Remnant out of every Nation and race that Christ chose not to save but that Satan inherited in his Army of “Magog”!!!
They are the ones that John saw in his 7 visions who had “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” and SATAN’S number of 666 invisibly written upon them by Christ Himself. And what Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th vision is just what He had REVEALED to Ezekiel years before – that “GOG” OR SATAN would form a conspiracy of ALL THE NATIONS to be against THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And that it would be A UNIVERSAL CONSPIRACY which is just what we see taking place now with the “Global Elites” trying to rule the WHOLE WORLD now with their “Great Reset”!!!
And it’s not just a coincidence that the number of UNSAVED MANKIND in Scripture is the number “6” – and there are 5 allies that join “Gog’s” Army which make a total of 6 ARMIES coming against Christ’s “Elect.” And that Christ Himself would initiate this Final Spiritual Battle when Ezekiel saw Christ putting “the hooks into the Jaws of Satan and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS” and pulling them out of HELL to bring them forth to fight this Final Spiritual Battle when we read just what we see happening TODAY
when Ezekiel prophesied:
“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army -- your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords.” (and we can now see that this Great Army of Antichrists have the unsound reprobate mind of those whose minds are controlled by Satan and his Army of Demons to actually think that they can MAKE WAR AGAINST THE VERY GOD OF THE UNIVERSE AND WIN!!!) (Ezekiel 38:4-5)
Believing in Christ’s True Gospel is evidence that one has been truly saved. And having a New Covenant Relationship with Christ is what is needed to enter Heaven and to be RAPTURED on the LAST DAY. And that New Covenant is the Covenant of GRACE that “the Messiah the Prince” came to make with “the many” of us “Elect” that is prophesied in Daniel 9:27 which Christ has already FULFILLED for those of us in His Holy Nation of Israel -- which is NOT the Nation of Israel in the Middle East – but “The Spiritual Israel of God.” And because the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy was ALREADY FULFILLED by Christ – we are today seeing that this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE is Christ’s WAR that He has initiated against SATAN to drag him out of HELL so that He can thoroughly DEFEAT HIM AND HIS SEED FOREVER BEFORE Rapturing and Delivering us “Elect” on the LAST DAY!!!
Those who are faithful to Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology know that “The Gog and Magog Battle” which is also called “Armageddon” is Christ’s Final Spiritual Battle against SATAN and ALL EVIL – NOT a Military Battle fought against ONE EVIL MAN!!! THE GOSPEL TRUTH is that this Final Battle with SATAN must take place BEFORE the Rapture and is happening now at the END of the Great Tribulation just as Christ prophesied!!! And we “Elect” should be ecstatic to understand from “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology that “Armageddon” is the SPIRITUAL PLACE of Christ’s VICTORY over SATAN AND ALL EVIL!!! Don’t give up hope – Christ WINS this Battle and He is coming soon to RAPTURE us “Elect” and put an END to Satan’s rule of this World forever!!!
