NOW Rising! Gog and Magog War: Russia, Ukraine, Iran, Israel. We Are Witnessing the Fulfillment of Ezekiel 38

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


“Gog and Magog War” that is the dubbed name given by eschatologists to the prophecy found in the book of Ezekiel 38-39. In this prophecy Magog (Russia) and their counterparts unite and rise against the nation of Israel.  We have yet to see the fulfillment of this Biblical prophecy, however today we are witnessing the formation of this alliances.


“The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog [Russia], the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal [Former Soviet States]; prophesy against him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog [Russia's Leader], chief prince of Meshek and Tubal.” Ezekiel 38:1-3


Russia is Magog and Gog is their leader. Meshech and Tubal are believed by many to be the former Soviet States, which includes Ukraine. It is clear according to these Scriptures that the Russian leader will rule over some of the former Soviet States, which is exactly what we witnessing in Ukraine. Furthermore in 2008, Russia invaded the country of Georgia attempting to take the South Ossetia from them. Could these aggressive acts by Russia clue us into Putin’s desire to rebuilt the Soviet Union and fulfill Biblical prophecy?


“I will turn you around [Russia and its alliances], 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.” Ezekiel 38:4


Putting hooks, or a bit into the jaw of an animal is a way of forcing the animal, such as a horse, to move in the direction the rider desires. This means that Gog–Russia’s Leader— will unwillingly be influenced to lead this war by God Himself. In other words, circumstances will be such that Gog will have no choice but to follow God’s will.  It is theorized by some eschatologists that Russia could get pulled into the war in attempt to retaliate for an offence committed by Israel to one of their allies.


“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.” Ezekiel 38:5-6


Iran is Persia. Cush is Ethiopia and Sudan (Algeria and Tunisia are possible candidates also). Libya is Put. Gomer is Germany and some other European counterparts. Armenia and Turkey are Beth Togarmah. These countries form the rest of the participants in the Gog and Magog War. Ezekiel tells us that this will be a massive army with many people under the leadership of Russians leader, who the Bible dubbed as Gog.


Before this portion of the prophecy takes place, however, Russia must govern a portion of the former Soviet States (Ezekiel 38:1-3) which is what we are now witnessing. Russia flexing their muscle to invade Georgia in 2008 and recognizing South Ossetia as an independent state, and invading Ukraine in 2014, with Crimea breaking away and aligning with Russia.


One common denominator that we see in this nation alliance, in Ezekiel 38:5-6, is that many are Muslim nations. This is important because at the very core of Islam is the belief that Israel does not have the right to exist. Many believe Allah called them to destroy the Jews and re-take Jerusalem.


Furthermore what is interesting is that Persia is listed as Russia’s alliance. Currently, both Russia and Iran are teaming up. But what makes this alliance more unsettling is the fact that Iran is developing nuclear technology and their Islamic ideology suggests that these weapons could be used to destroy Israel and any nation that stands with them.


It is believed by many that when Israel feels threatened enough they will strike Iran with nuclear power, which would spark the Gog and Magog War and force Russia into battle in retaliation for their alliance with Iran. At that point many Muslim believing nations: Ethiopia, Sudan, Libya, Turkey, Armenia, parts of Europe and the others, will join in battle with Russia against Israel.


“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog [Russia's Leader]: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: In that day, when my people Israel are living in safety, will you not take notice of it? You will come from your place in the far north, you and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army. You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.” Ezekiel 38:14-16


Israel will be dwelling in their land safety when Russia decides to attack. This could be due to the fact that a ‘peace treaty’ is signed that ushers in “false peace” in Israel. It is this peace-treaty which ignites the start of the Biblical tribulation and aids in ushering in the Antichrist. Either way, whatever makes Israel feel safe, this is what draws Russia into the battle.


“‘This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord. In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.  The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.  I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him.  And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’” Ezekiel 38: 18-23


God will reveal Himself in this war through judgment and he will pour out his wrath on the nation of Russia and its allies. He will cause earthquakes, volcanoes, thunderstorms, and the like to fall on  this army. Some eschatologist believe Israel will use nuclear force. Either way, this will be one of the most horrific events in history and it will shake the very foundation of the world.  


“Son of man, prophesy against Gog and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal.  I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north and send you against the mountains of Israel. Then I will strike your bow from your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand.  On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals.  You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Sovereign Lord. I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands, and they will know that I am the Lord.


“‘I will make known my holy name among my people Israel. I will no longer let my holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the Lord am the Holy One in Israel.  It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord. This is the day I have spoken of.” Ezekiel 39:1-8

      Well, first of all, let me say thanks Lisa for opening comments. I hope they will stay open in the future Lisa?

      Here then is my comment for this article:

      The Gog and Magog prophecies in the Bible are not something that plays out in the dispensation we now find ourselves in. It plays out after the Millennial Reign. Here is the timeline of end time events in regards to the Second Coming, the 1,000 year Millennial Reign, the battle of Gog and Magog, and the new heavens and new earth:

      The Second Coming is when Jesus returns on the clouds:

      “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him…”
      —Revelation 1:7

      That is the end of this age, the end of mankind as we know it. The Second Coming occurs at the 7th trumpet, which coincides with the 3rd woe, which coincides with the rapture, or the meeting of the Lord in the clouds:

      “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
      —1st Thessalonians 4:17

      So believers meet Jesus in the clouds at the Second Coming (rapture) to be with Him forever more. Then the 1,000 year Millennial Reign takes place. Then after the Millennial Reign, Jesus sets foot upon the earth as described in chapter 14 of Zechariah:

      1 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
      2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
      3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
      4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
      5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
      6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
      7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

      —Zechariah 14:1-7

      Verses 2 and 3 above are the battle with Gog and Magog, which corresponds with Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 and Revelation chapter 20, which takes place after the 1,000 year Millennial Reign:

      7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
      8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
      9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

      —Revelation 20:7-9

      Notice above in Zechariah 14:6-7, it talks about the unique time, where it is always light. This corresponds to the new heavens and the new earth (which are created after the Millennium) and the new Jerusalem:

      23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
      24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
      25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

      —Revelation 21:23-25

      So to recap, the Second Coming/rapture occurs and believers meet Jesus in the clouds. It is from heaven where the saints reign over the earth from during the 1,000 year Millennial Reign. And then, after the 1,000 year Millennial Reign, the nations surround Jerusalem and the battle with Gog and Magog takes place where God utterly destroys them and Jesus sets foot upon the mount of Olives. And then the new heavens and new earth are created and the New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven and this is the unique time where there is no night in the New Jerusalem. It is then when the sons of God rule and reign over the earth from the New Jerusalem.

      Your absolutely right. The Gog/Magog nations are starting to line up with Bible prophecy. There will be no one to stop Putin’s aggession but God in Ezekiel 38:18-39:4 should Putin be Gog in this prophecy. One can check the link out on how Putin is progressing. Remember God has not appointed us to wrath. (1 Thessalonians 5:9) God has wrath in Ezekiel 38:18-19 so 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 the rapture will happen before the Gog/Magog war starts. Check the link below to see how far Putin is progressing. No one has updated this information on Putin’s moves yet. The books published on the Gog/Magog conflict do not have this updated information. It won’t cost a cent to read what Putin has been doing in the last two years.

        “the rapture will happen before the Gog/Magog war starts.”

        Indeed, the rapture does happen before the Gog/Magog thing.

        The Gog/Magog thing happens at the end of the Millennial Reign.

        The rapture occurs right before the beginning of the Millennial Reign at end of the age the end of mankind as we know it, at the conclusion of this dispensation we find ourselves living in, when the trumpet of the third woe sounds (see REV 8:13) and Jesus comes riding upon the clouds and every eye shall see (see REV 1:7)!

        For more on the rapture see:

      There is no nation of Israel, they were wiped off the face of Earth in 70 CE by the Roman Pharisees. Pharisaic beliefs became the basis for Judaism after 70 CE. Jesus was not a Pharisee, not Jewish, Judaisms didn’t exist when he lived.

      God and Magog, democracy v’s dictatorship. Dictatorships is all we have ever known apart from one glorious moment in time when Jesus did live, the Roman republic. Jesus gave up his pharisaic godship rule for the sake of the Roman republic. The Pharisees were a political dictatorship, they murdered Jesus and murdered Israel.

      It’s already been and gone, done and dusted. A resurrection of Jesus = resurrection of a true republic instead of the oxymoronic democracy in moderation we have, a dictatorship run by bankers and traders. :lol:

        Yes, Israel was reborn in 1948. God restored it as He said He would. It is where it has always been, but is smaller because she has greedy neighbors, but that will be corrected soon.

        God came to earth 2000 years ago to pay the price of our sins. He came as Jesus Christ. He was crucified, died and resurrected as He said was going to happen. He is coming again. He is God and cannot be replaced by some manmade society. All manmade societies have failed in the past and will continue. Only rule under God will flourish.

      People are already being deceived.Ezekiel 38:2-39:4 The Gog/Magog war in the Ezekiel prophecy ends with Gog being eaten up by ravenous birds upon the mountains of Israel, while the Gog/Magog in Revelation 20:4-10 occurs AFTER Jesus Christ 1,000 year reign and Gog and Magog are struck down by fire from heaven. The devil which deceived mankind is then thrown in the Lake of Fire joining the beast anti-Christ and false prophet which had deceived people BEFORE Jesus Christ 1,000 year reign. Don’t be deceived by false prophets.

    • julahla

      I personally believe in a pre trib rapture…I don’t however see these issues as being deceit. I have a relationship with Jesus Christ regardless of what happens…Scripture assures me that i am a child of God. All this end time stuff…Well we will just have to wait and see.

    • truthlovingsoul

      israel is not the good guy, people. they are not a democracy, they are a supremacist THEOCRACY. israel is the reason for all the unrest in the middle east. they are a cancer.

      • maxford

      Just wanted to leave a quick note on Russia.
      Russia is never called out in Scripture. All of the LORD’s burdens are against the Muslim countries which surround Israel.

      Compare the various translations and you will find that 9 out of 36 English translation will fail to translate the Hebrew word Rosh making it a country in Ezekiel 38:2, 39:1 and the rest will correctly translate the Hebrew word Rosh for ‘chief’ or ‘head of’ as it does in the other 599 times ‘rosh’ is mentioned in the Scripture. Those translations that do note ‘Rosh’ in the English are the more recent. Even the KJ and NKJ do not agree. The Latin vulgate, Geneva, and Jewish translations note ‘Chief’ Prince of Meshech and Tubal, not Prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal.

      Meshech and Tubal are in Turkey.

      The misquote that they come from the “far” north does not mean Russia. At the time of Ezekiel that would easily been covered by the area just north of Turkey and south of Russia.

      Just ask the question: “Why would God suddenly grab Russia from nowhere else in Scripture and make it the bad guy? Why is it never mentioned in the history of the Scriptures?
