PROPHESY AGAINST GOG (2022)
PROPHESY AGAINST GOG
(Ezekiel 38 and 39)
May 15, 2008; January 30, 2022
In Ezekiel, chapter 38, we are commanded to prophesy against Gog, of the land of Magog,
38:2: Son of man, set your face against Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him.
In Psalm 82, the judges and rulers of the earth are judged by God. The judgment of Gog/Magog has likewise already been sealed in the Word of God. Not only Ezekiel, but we the Church are the “Son of man.” The Scripture cannot be broken. It is sealed.
In Psalm 82, Asaph received a vision of the court of Heaven. This is a prophetic picture of this great assembly presided over by Elohiym, the Supreme God of all the mighty of the earth. This is not an ordinary council meeting. It is a trial and God presides as judge. Those who are being judged are the gods of the nations. The gods have a dual meaning of both the demonic princes over the earth and/or their earthly counter parts. God is standing in the court of heaven. The Word of God declares he is the judge of all the mighty (el) of the earth. The charge of God against earth’s very great judges is:
1. Not listening to true justice.
2. Corrupting what is right by judging in favor of the wrong.
3. Not defending the poor and fatherless.
4. Not doing justice to the afflicted and needy.
God makes his judgment and his sentence of death. This is a powerful Word of God and I believe that by the sealed Word of God, we have the authority to stand before God and ask him to judge the mighty-ones of the earth and bring justice not only to our nation, but the nations of the earth.
82:1-2: -(T.P.T.): All rise! For God now comes to judge as he convenes heaven’s courtroom! He judges every judge and rules over every ruler! Saying, how long will you judges refuse to listen to the voice of true justice and continue to corrupt what is right by judging in favor of the wrong?
Psa. 82: 1-2: A Psalm of Asaph.
God stands in the congregation of the mighty;
He judges among the gods.
How long will you judge unjustly,
And show partiality to the wicked? Selah
Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39 are one prophecy and tell of a coming northern confederacy of nations around the Black and Caspian seas with Persia. and North Africa. These nations are ruled in the realm of the spirit by the spirit of communism and the spirit of Islam.
These nations include Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, North West India and Russia; plus, Persia (Iran) and North Africa (Ethiopia and Libya). I am of the persuasion with those who believe this passage is apocalyptic. Gog is a Satanic prince or Satan personified as the chief prince in this league of nations. I did some research on the internet using the "string", "Northern confederacy of nations around the Black and Caspian Seas". These nations have economic and environmental confederacies in place. As we have studied apocalyptic literature in the Holy Bible, we clearly identify the Prince of Persia and the Prince of Grecia as demonic chief princes over the Middle eastern and Mediterranean nations. According to the prophecy in Ezekiel 38 and 39, These powers and principalities will come together under one demonic prince, (Gog). Russia and the northern powers have long been persecutors of dispersed Israel along with the Islamic nations. The entire prophecy belongs to the Day of the Lord. (Joel 1:15).
Russian and Iran have already moved into Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. (10/11/15 – Suddenly by Pastor Carolyn Sissom).
As Russia continues to threaten Ukraine, the consequences of a Russian invasion would ripple far beyond the standoff between the two countries. Some 70,000 Jews live in Ukraine. In view of the fighting, they are looking to get out. Iran continues the threaten to destroy Israel.
Ez. 39: 1-2: I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal and I will turn you back, and leave but the sixth part of you, and will cause you to come up from the north parts, and will bring you upon the mountains of Israel. 38:20b: All the men upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My Presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground." I believe all of Christendom believes these threats of Iran against Israel and the U.S.A. are the birth pains of the fulfillment of the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 and 39. Also, we see the storms and earthquakes shaking the nations of the earth.
Metaphorically or spiritually the mountains of Israel refer to God's end-time people and the Kingdom of God as well as the Nation of Israel (The Whole House of Israel – Ez. 39:25). Each one of these demons are spirits that will be loosed on the earth in the latter days upon the sons of God so that these powers of darkness can be defeated.
Rom 16:20: The God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
I do not see that the literal interpretation and the spiritual interpretation are in opposition with each other. Now in the 21st Century we see the spirit of anti-christ moving across the earth through the dragon (China), the beast (One World Order), and Gog/Magog. All of these nations have embraced this spirit. Russia with the spirit of communism i.e., the spirit of Russia is a government of destruction, cruelty, suspicion, oppressive and sets one against another. In all of these nations, terrorism, fear and deception are the powers and principalities. God is going to put a hook in the jaw of all these spirits and destroy them (Ez. 38:4). God is going to bring these spirits to the Mountains of Israel (Nation of Israel and Sons of God i.e. The Whole House of Israel (39:25) and destroy them literally and spiritually. “And all the nations of the earth shall know that He is the Lord Our God.
FOR THOSE READING THESE NOTES, I WILL BE PROPHESYING THIS ENTIRE PASSAGE: Yes, I have the authority of the Word of God which has already been sealed in judgment in Heaven.
Ez. 38: Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and tubal, and prophesy against him. Say, thus says the LORD GOD: Behold, I am against you O’ Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops---many people are with you. Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely. You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many people like you. Thus says the LORD GOD: On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan. You will say, I will go up against a land of unwalled villages. I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars not gates to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land…(vs.18): It will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the LORD GOD, that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: Surely in that day, there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, so that the fish of the sea, birds of the heavens, beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed. I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many people who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire and brimstone. Thus, I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.
39:2: I will turn you around and lead you on, and bring you up from the north…
39:3: Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand.
39:4: You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel…I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
39:5: You shall fall on the open field.
39:6: I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. They shall know that I am the LORD.
39:7: I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them profane My holy name anymore.
39:8: This is the day of which I have spoken.
39:9: Those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fire with them for seven years.
39:11: Gog will be buried and all his multitude in the Valley of Hamon Gog.
39:12: For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land.
39:21: I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment which I have executed, and My hand which I have laid on them. The house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day forward. The Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore I hid My face from them. I gave them into the hand of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword.
39:28: Then they shall know that I am the LORD their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land; and left none of them captive any longer.
The land of unwalled cities looked more like the U.S.A. than Israel. Either way the Lord God in his fury and in His jealousy and in His fire shall defeat all of these devils. As long as we are walking with Jesus, we are going to be fine. “He is going to give the Church the victory…God is going to destroy those powers. They won’t destroy His sons! (Bill Britton)
Gog the Chief prince would also be the prince and power of the air (Eph. 2: 1-2). God will put a hook in the jaw of Leviathan. (38:4). These are coming against the Mountains of Israel, God’s Covenant People.
The great shaking of verse 19 can be found in Hag. 2 and Heb. 12. Verse 20 tells us that every wall will fall down to the ground! (Rev. 11; 15). The fire can be found in Obad. 17; Mal. 4: 1-6. This describes the operation and the ministry of the Sons of God to sweep away the lies that these spirits have fostered. Only then can he reveal His face to the earth and usher in the Temple (Glory of God) of chapters 40-48. All enemies are going under His feet.
I believe we can compare Gog and Magog with Revelation 20. All do not have this view. Some have this broken down to pre-trib, mid-trib or post-trib. I don’t think anyone knows any more about it than I do which is very little.
39:25: Therefore, says the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the WHOLE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND WILL BE JEALOUS FOR MY HOLY NAME.” Neither will I hide my face any more from them.
Jesus’ Church has the same blessing and heritage as Israel. We are of His DNA. We are part of the whole house of Israel.
