Ezekiel 38 and 39

Iran. War. Christian.


Today’s news:

In a demonstration likely designed to intimidate the US and Israel, Iran test fired two missiles as part of a 10-day military exercise on Monday.

With these missiles, Iran could target regional US bases. The military display was also designed to demonstrate Iran’s ability to close of the Strait of Hormuz, through which 20 percent of the world’s oil passes.

As speculation intensifies that the US and Israel are conducting a covert war against Iran, and the West is threatening to impose further sanctions, the Islamic Republic has said it is enhancing its defenses. (Jan.2,2012).

In December there were oil problems. OPEC was scheduled to meet December 14th and prior to this meeting there was already an apparent “build-up” of American forces in the Straight of Hormuz. Why, because the US was anticipating a new round of sanctions on Iran. The US was also aware that Iran was pushing to get OPEC to take advantage of Libya’s return to the oil market following its share of problems (Revolution concocted by CIA, NATO, et.al). During the “Revolution” Saudi Arabia increased its output and stood to make some hefty fiat over the situation. Now that Iran is asking OPEC to include Libyan sweet crude once again, guess who stands to loose fiat? Yes, American interest, Saudi Arabia. Iraq also, a third largest producer of oil also upped their oil output during the Libyan debacle. Of course we know that Iraq is totally independent and is no way led by any other governments outside their own democratically “elected” officials. o_O (Information source Bloomberg)


With Libya now “Free” and Iraq now “Stable” it appears that the growing consensus is that to keep the American public distracted with our impending mega-economic  collapse is another war. War is Peace. War is profitable. There has been a long ongoing complex series of foundation laying to justify going to war with Iran. Some saw Iraq as an “opportunity” to proxy war with Iran, which it was as I was told by Iraqi’s who left Iraq early and confirmed this was going on. The idea of “Christian America” fighting “Evil Muslim Iran” has been played out across “Evangelical” Churches for years. YEARS. I can recall a silly book written by John Hagee in which he declared Iran would be Nuclear Weapon ready within months to 3 years of the publication of his book! (Jerusalem Countdown 1, later he had to amend some of his false prophesies in Jerusalem Countdown 2; I’m waiting for it to show up at the Dollar Tree-not). Let’s not forget all the Christian Apologetics, Prophesy conferences, Joel Rosenberg, and everyone else looking to sell a book, DVD, or fill a conference room has been telling Christians that Iran will nuke Israel because of Ezekiel 38 & 39!! Is that what the scripture really says? Can you please review it: Ezekiel 38 & 39. Spend some time thinking about how many times Christian ministries throw in the impending doom of Iran and their Nuclear arsenal. And if the Bible is correct that Gog will attack Israel, is it not also true that GOD will protect the land of Israel?

18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.

19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are 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.

21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.

22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD. ~Ezekiel 38:18-23


Who protects Israel in the event of Ezekiel 38?

1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

2And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. ~ Ezekiel 39:1-8

Odd, I didn’t see the United States in that passage, or NATO, or a conglomerate of countries having to come to the aid of Israel. I’m not against supporting Israel. I’m against a preemptive attack on Iran that will cause them to do something to the US or our servicemen and women in the Straight of Hormuz. Maybe the evil corrupt groups within the US that are running things want us to do such a preemptive strike to cause the ensuing fallout? What? Yeah, maybe the real evil ones want to unleash a war on Christians and the only way to do it is to light the fuse in the direction of Muslim retaliation against a primed and angry Christian “Army” who have been long told there’s a coming war with Iran. Maybe, or I just have had too much coffee this morning.

US softens Iran sanctions plan to win support: report-(source AFP)

He will come to make war with the saints, he will come as a peacemaker, he will mislead many, he will attempt to change seasons and law, he denies the SON and thus denies the Father who sent HIM. The spirit of Anti-Christ is already among us, who will the Restrainer Reveal as the Real Anti-Christ? I don’t know that answer yet, but we should be wise as serpents and innocent as doves, be ready, examine, and test the spirits! Do not grow weary Christian brothers and sisters, continue to intercede in prayer and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ the ONE TRUE MESSIAH!

Cuban leader applauds US health-care reform bill– Associated Press

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform “a miracle” and a major victory for Obama’s presidency, but couldn’t help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

“We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government,” Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president’s hand against lobbyists and “mercenaries.”

Russia Will Control Georgia; Capital Tbilisi is modern day Tubal

In light of the War in Georgia which belonged to the Former Soviet Union and in relationship to the Prophesy of Ezekiel 38 & 39 I must share this information:

13. Tubal: The descendants of Tubal first come to our notice in the inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser I, king of Assyria in about 1100 BC. He refers to them as the Tabali whose original area of settlement (i.e. Tabal) was adjacent to that of Tegarama (see 5). Subsequently, Josephus recorded the name of Tubal’s descendants as the Thobelites, who were later known as the Iberes. Their land, in Josephus’ day, was called by the Romans Iberia, and covered what is now the (former Soviet) state of Georgia whose capital to this day bears the name Tubal as Tbilisi. From here, having crossed the Caucasus mountains, this people migrated due north-east, giving their tribal name to the river Tobol, and hence to the famous city of Tobolsk. (Refs: 1DB 4:717. NBD ‘Meshech’ 811. JA1. vi.1) [Source: the Nations of Japeth; Bill Cooper]

Areas of Fighting

5. Togarmah: His earliest descendants settled in Armenia. We know from certain Hittite documents that in the 14th century BC, the then region of Tegarama, which lay between Carchemish and Haran, was sacked by the ‘enemy from Isuwa’, i.e. the enemy from beyond the Euphrates. The records of both Sargon II and Sennacherib mention the city of Til-gari-manu, the capital of Kammanu which lay on the border of Tabal (see 13). Til-gari-manu lay some thirty miles due east of present-day Malatya (it is known today as Gürün, anciently Gauraena), and was not finally destroyed until the year 695 BC. It was after the destruction of Til-gari-manu that the descendants of Togarmah became lost in obscurity. In line with the Assyrian policy of that time, the survivors were uprooted and transported to other lands within the Assyrian empire (see Map 1). The name was given as Thrugramma by Josephus. (Refs: 1DB 4:662. NBD 1285. JA 1.vi.1. P 1:26)

14. Meshech: The descendants of Meshech are often spoken of in close association with those of Tubal, the Assyrians for example mentioning Tabal and Musku, whilst Herodotus writes of the Tiberanoi and Moschoi. A very much earlier reference to the peoples of Meshech, is an inscription of ca 1200 BC which tells us how they overran the Hittite kingdom; and an inscription of Tiglath-pileser I of Assyria from ca 1100 BC, who tells us that, in his own day, the Mus-ka-a-ia were able to put into the field an army of 20,000 men. The activities of this same people are also subsequently reported by Tukulti-ninurta II, Ashurnasipal II, Sargon and Shalmaneserr III, the last of whom refers to them as the Mushki. Josephus knew them as the Mosocheni (LXX Mosoch), whom, he says, were known in his own day as the Cappadocians. Some later writers have pointed out that the name of Meshech is preserved in the old tribal name of the Muscovites of Russia, after whom Moscow is named. Such an identification, it must be said, is not at all unlikely, especially when we consider the subsequent history of their historically close associates the people of Tubal, and the fact that the city is still known today in the Russian tongue as Moskva, an exceedingly close, not to say identical relationship to the Assyrian form, Musku. (Refs: 1DB 3:357. NBD 811. JAl. vi.l. P 1:26)

10. Tarshish: The father of the peoples of Tarshish, or Tartesis, who are thought by most to have settled in Spain. The Mediterranean Sea was once known as the Sea of Tarshish, and it is known that the Phoenicians built a class of vessel called a ship of Tarshish. (It was in one of these that Jonah tried to flee from Joppa in the 8th century BC.) Phoenician inscriptions found on Sardinia, and dating to the 9th century BC, mention Tarshish without, unfortunately, providing us with a positive identification of its geographical location. Josephus records the name as Tharsus, and tells that it used to be the name under which Cilicia was known, the chief and noblest city of which was Tarsus. However, for various reasons the identification is unlikely, and the matter remains unresolved. (Refs: 1DB 4:517. NBD 1239-40. JA 1.vi.1. P 1:26)

6. Magog: His immediate descendants were known as the Magogites, being later known to the Greeks as the Scythians, according to the testimony of Josephus. However, given the subsequent history of the peoples of Ashchenaz (see 3), who are far more certainly identified as the later Scythians (Gk. Skythai, and Assyr. Askuza), it is more likely that the early Magogites were assimilated into the peoples of Ashchenaz, thus making up merely a part of the Scythian hordes. The early Irish Celts traced their own lineage from Japheth through the line of Magog (see chapter 9 and Map 1). (Refs: 1DB 3:226. NBD ‘Gog and Magog’ 480-1 JA 1.vi.1. P 1:26)

Here’s a question and it’s way out there…If Tubal is Tbilisi, and we know the Anti-Christ will attempt to win over the world by “Peace” (a false peace–but really use violence) would Putin then not be the one to look at and instead….The President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili?  Or Will the Real Czar of Rosh, Meshach, Magog and Tubal Please Stand up?

Ezekiel 38: 1-6 Gog and Allies Attack Israel

1 Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 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, 3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 4 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. 5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6 Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.

UPDATE: April 2010

This post was written prior to Barack Obama’s appointment to president. Today USEUCom is tending to missions in Georgia. Georgia is filling up with American Soldiers. Why? Perhaps to ‘prevent’ a war with Russia, but since Barack Hussein Obama just signed a joint new START treaty which aims to reduce Nuclear Warheads and other WMD’s with Russia (USSR) I highly doubt that any presence in Georgia would be to truly thwart an attack but maybe more smoke and mirrors from Barack’s White House Administration and instead be used to symbolically ‘BOW’ to mother Russia. The aforementioned comments are highly speculative, and my own theory, not at all based on any intel or previous information known. I did feel it necessary to update this post with this comment because there are new reports on Georgia and this post is getting hits again…That is all, nothing to see here just more of the same which is the world convening and heading towards the ultimate goal, fulfillment of God’s Word.

“Or another example: Our Marines are conducting pre-deployment training in the Republic of Georgia, which will result in Georgian forces deployed to Afghanistan. As capabilities improve, Georgian forces are expected to be able to operate independently and eventually stand up a training program to prepare future Georgian forces for deployment.” SOURCE: ACO Allied Command Operations (link)  http://www.aco.nato.int/page7650524.aspx
