In 2015 I wrote a series on the Gog – Magog War described in Ezekiel 38 and 39. Recent events occurring in Turkey make me believe I should re-post them. A Turkish newspaper with close ties to Prime Minister Erdogan wrote the following article –
In 2014 I wrote a 4 part series of articles titled 26 Signs on the Lord’s Soon Return. It isn’t that these signs have not happened throughout history but, that they all are happening together right now, and in ever increasing frequency. This is the warning Jesus gave, that they would be like birth pangs getting closer together and more intense until the time of the delivery.
“All these are the beginning of sorrows (lit. birth pangs)” – Matt. 24:8
If you haven’t read this series, I urge you to do so. But, there is another topic I want to concentrate on in this article – it is Psalm 83. This psalm was written by Asaph who besides being King David’s worship leader was also a prophet. Many believe Psalm 83 is a prophecy of a war that has not yet happened and I have written about it before. But, whether that is true or not, Psalm 83 certainly describes events happening right now and it may well lead into the war of Ezekiel 38, 39 . Continue reading
Issues over the Mideast and Israel are reaching the critical point. The so-called non-nuclear agreement reached with Iran must soon be affirmed, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah are building dramatically on Israel’s northern borders, and Hamas is slowly taking over in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

In 2015 I posted a series of articles concerning the prophesied Gog Magog war with Israel but, it deserved to be updated as much has happened since then. First, let me recap some of what I wrote previously.
“In Gog Rising parts 1-4, I identified most of the nations led by Russia against Israel as: Russia, Turkey, Iran, Libya, Sudan, and others. –
“You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.” – Ezekiel 38:9
The daily news is filled with acts of terrorism, acts of war, and threats of war in the Middle east. Many wise men and politicians offer their plans for a solution but those I’ve heard fail to take into account what God has said about the situation. Nations today spend much time and effort developing their foreign policies to deal with such situations but few consider that God may also have a divine ‘foreign policy’.
God’s ‘foreign policy’ is described in Psalm 83 and the related Scriptures of Psalm 2 and Isaiah 11. God has a long memory, He is not only long-suffering towards man’s sin but, He also never forgets a promise made. With this truth in view, let’s look at God’s Foreign Policy – Continue reading
In last years post named Revisiting Gog of Ezekiel I stated –
“Russia’s current move into Crimea, Yugoslavia, and other Baltic states could signal the setting for Ezekiel’s prophesy beginning. Russia’s threatening Denmark with nuclear retaliation, Iran’s threatening to wipe Israel off the map, ISIS’ threats against Jordan and Saudi Arabia are all setting the scene for Israel making a preemptive strike on Lebanon, Syria, and/or Iran. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt may even support such an Israeli attack.”
Under cover of the Syrian ceasefire that went into effect Saturday, Feb. 27, and the Russian air umbrella, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps finally managed to secretly install hundreds of armed Palestinian terrorists on the Syrian-Israeli border, face-to-face with the IDF’s Golan positions, DEBKAfile reports exclusively.
