For years, Bible teachers and preachers have been looking for Russia to lead a coalition of nations in an attack against Israel as foretold in Ezekiel 38-39.
I haven’t worried about that possibility since Turkey is the real key to that whole scenario since many of the ancient nations mentioned in the prophecy are now incorporated in modern Turkey.

Now I believe that Turkey is in play and that we might actually be witnessing the lining up of a possible Ezekiel 38-39 coalition.
Also see my previous article on Ezekiel 38-39 where I identify the modern locations of the Gog and Magog coalition:
