The LORD G-d—whether the devil realizes it or not—is going to win a major conquest for Israel.
The conflict described in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 involves the powers from the North.
“Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
And say, This is what the Lord G-D says; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
And I will turn you back, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armor, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling weaponry:
Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with you.” ‒ Ezekiel 38:2-6
NOTICE: Magog is a people group, while Gog is a Satanically inspired leader of that people.
Wilhelm Gesenius was a renowned German Biblical critic and pioneer of critical Hebrew lexicography and grammar. Here is his analysis of the “movers and shakers” in this passage.
“Meshech was a barbarous people known as Moschi who dwelt in the Moschian mountains; the root from which the city of Moscow [derived] its name.”
However, Mushki (MŠK) of central and western Asia Minor, known in the classics (Homer, etc.) as Phrygia, fits very well. These people were well known to Ezekiel, and this may be the easier interpretation
We know that Persia is synonymous with present day Iran.
Tubal, Gomer and Togarmah represent sections of Turkey.
■ WHAT IS EZEKIEL SAYING TODAY
Read carefully Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. Then compare what you have read with the following synopsis. I think you will agree.
Russia, Turkey, Iran and other Middle East and North East African nations will form an alliance to attack Israel.
G-d will defeat this alliance of Magog and others on the hills of Israel, and leave only 17 percent of them.
It will take seven months to bury the dead bodies, and seven years to burn the implements of war (probably radioactive elements).
The victory for Israel will be so great and miraculous that ALL nations will realize that the G-d of Israel is the LORD.
“Thus says the Lord G-D; Are you, Gog, the one of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring you against them?
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;
So that the fish of the sea, and the birds 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.
And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, says the Lord G-D: every man's weapon shall be against his brother.
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.
This is how I will 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
Think about this: the players today in alignment against Israel are the same as mentioned in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. We know this because of the cognate forms of names used in the original Hebrew. The only difference is … they have NOT attacked yet.
Magog—the Southern Steppes of Russia (former Soviet- Bloc countries);
The Triumvirate of Testing for Israel at this moment is: Russia, Iran, and Turkey. Russia cavorts with whomever, always seeking the balance of power: its own. Iran wants to exterminate anyone the Mad Mahdi doesn't approve, which happens to be ALL non-Muslims. And Turkey, is coming out of the closet, in preparation for her role as the headquarters for New World Governance.
Russia has been attempting to attach its holdings in previous Soviet Bloc countries to prevent NATO encroachment into these areas. It was strategically taking advantage of the recent American president's (Obama) weakness in military experience and foreign policy negotiations.
Iran wants to fill the void in the Middle East which resulted from the invasion of Iraq. (This also happens to be a goal of Turkey.) Iran, under the leadership of the Grand Meany and his puppet Barney Fife want to bring destruction and chaos to ALL non-Muslim people and nations.
Iran now has the capability to produce a nuclear weapon. It has warhead capability.
Many of America’s closest Mideast allies, particularly Israel and Saudi Arabia, have warned Washington against concluding a deal with Tehran. When Obama was President of the USA, Arab countries, in particular, worried that the U.S. would forge a closer relationship with Shiite Iran to confront radical Sunni groups, such as Islamic State and al Qaeda.
That was folly, because as Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu pointed out in his speech to the USA Congress, “the enemy of your enemy―in this case―is (still) your enemy!”
The MAJOR reason Iran is NOT attacking Israel right now is to give Iran TIME to produce several bombs first. A secondary reason previously was as a major bargaining chip with the USA. Iran knew the recent USA President Obama had NO military background and was without experience in war strategy or military diplomacy. Iran felt the recent USA president was weak and would easily be dissuaded with rhetoric, using his Muslim upbringing as a tool on the chessboard.
If Iran can gain BOTH time and privilege, it will be a bonus toward their efforts. After using the recent USA President, and after gaining hard assets and other desirables earned via diplomacy, Iran was in even a better position to attack Israel. However, President Donald Trump withdrew from the Iran deal and placed hard sanctions once again against Iran. If, however, no advantageous benefits are to be realized from the USA, Iran can still attack Israel; all the while having created BOTH a situation of non-apprehension while creating more bombs.
As I mentioned in my podcast, Confidential: Intel for Israel, (12 Feb, 2009), Turkey will be the new headquarters for the New World Governance. In due time it will become obvious that it will in effect be the (clandestine) headquarters of the NIO: New Islamic Order.
As the Global Governance center, Turkey will come into position after breaking away from its previous European and Western associations, and―as the Eastern leg of the old Roman Empire―it will be the epicenter of Islamic geopolitical and financial concourse.
Already, since I provided this information in 2009, we have seen (via Vaadat Orchim) that Turkey is parlaying and weighing her odds for partnership to her greatest advantage: Russia (and the Caucasus), Saudi Arabia, or Iran. Either—or all—of the three, as bedfellows, will still have the stamp of Islam.

CONQUEST OVER MUSLIM ENTITIES
THE WEAPONS USED ARE DIFFERENT
In Ezekiel 38, G-d sends earthquake(s), overflowing rain, hailstones and fire … plus disease and blood … upon Israel's enemies. Also, Israel's enemy goes into confusion and fights with each other.
In Ezekiel 39, 83% [five-sixths] of Israel's enemies are either destroyed or overcome. And [one-sixth] 17% of the enemy forces are sent back to their home lands.
In the Battle of Armageddon (Revelation Chapter 16) we read of a great earthquake affecting the whole earth and hailstones the size of 100 pounds. However, there is NO mention of disease (pestilence) and blood; nor of fire and burning sulphur like in Ezekiel 38.
THE ENEMIES INVOLVED ARE DIFFERENT
In Ezekiel 38 and 39, we see that the focus of the conflict is while Israel is at peace in their land … “Brought back out of the nations dwelling safely.” [Ezekiel 38:8] Also, the commanding enemy forces who attack Israel are from the North: parts of Russia, Turkey, Iran (all North of Jerusalem) with some allies in the North-East African region.
In the Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 16) Israel is NOT at peace … and we read that the whole world is involved as Israel's enemies. It appears that this fits the time frame of “Jacob's Trouble” during the last 42 months of the Great Tribulation: the last half of Daniel the Prophet's heptad of seven years. [Daniel 9:27 and Matthew 24:15]
“Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.
Then they gathered the kings [of the whole world] together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” [Brit Chadashah / Revelation 16:13-14,16]
A war between Israel and much of the Middle East will happen, not just bordering Arab states like Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan. They (that is, the children of Israel ... both Ephraim and Judah) will "fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines (Palestinians) to the west." In context Israel will strike against Egypt and Iraq (Assyria) and "plunder the sons of the East." Israel will control these nations, and evidently, their wealth as a result of the plundering. Etymologically, the "people of the East" MAY include other Arab nations.
It is very evident here in this passage ... see verse 14 ... that Israel will control the East Bank of Jordan (Ammon, Moab, and Edom). This happened in Joshua's time and it has NOT happened SINCE the days of Isaiah. This is a future prophecy that WILL happen!
It is quite probable that the devastation of terrorist groups like Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, Hamas, Fatah, Al-Qaeda and ISIS will be accomplished during this conflict. It may be one of the factors—if not the primary factor—that actually precipitates the conflict. Actually, many of the citizens in these Muslim nations may be glad Israel wins this conflict to deliver them from the hands of terrorist groups and leadership.
So now we know what the “hook” is that God uses to draw the powers from the North: it is Israel's great wealth!
The LORD says to the Northern powers: “I will turn you back, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth …” ‒ Ezekiel 38:4
The Northern powers' leader will say: “I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey ... upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations.” – Ezekiel 38:11-12
The Northern powers described in Ezekiel 38-39 are parts of Russia, Turkey, Iran (the North of Jerusalem) with allies in the North-East African region.
Where—and when—does Israel achieve the great wealth that God will use to draw the powers from the North against her?
Remember, Isaiah Chapter Eleven verse 14 tells us, “Israel will strike against Egypt and Assyria (Iraq and Syria) and "plunder the sons of the East." Israel will control these nations, and evidently, their wealth as a result of the plundering. Notice, also, that these entities that are conquered by Israel are ALL presently Muslim nations.
In Psalm 83 we see what MAY BE a parallel description of Isaiah Chapter Eleven—possibly—in more detail as it pertains to the parties involved. Remember, the Book of Isaiah was written more recently, around 750 B.C.E … while Psalm 83 was written about 1,000 B.C.E. However, the Spirit of G-d can use writers, including prophets, at different times of writing to make declarations concerning the same events: even future.

Israel and the Jewish People have suffered much at the hands of “history.” However, what most people―especially politicians and world leaders―do NOT realize is that there is a “dark force” behind the causation of these degrading elements.
In this teaching we will expose not only the past stratagem of Israel's enemy … but also the present and future plots assigned to further deceive, harm and ensnare God's Chosen People. We will also expose the stratagem of Israel's enemy with regard to New Babylon ... and the New Nimrod.
Key geopolitical "overlays" will be discussed with their prophetic importance today … and in the future!
But hang on … we will furnish proof revealing the age old truth (what my mother used to say) that, “It's how you finish that counts!”
However, recall the mass pillage and murders done to the Jewish People under the Roman Titus and his armies [mostly conscripts and enlistees from Ishmaelite-Arabian areas in the Middle East] in 70 C.E. And that's NOT even acccounting for the genocide of six million Jews under the rule of Hitler in Nazi Germany. [Note: first usage in Bible of the word "Arabs" is in 4 Kings (Tanakh) or 2 Kings 17:11 in Holy Bible.
Satan tried many times to exterminate the Jewish People. WHY? First, because he did not want the Mashiach of Israel to be born; therefore, he attempted to destroy the seedline of the Jewish People and thereby cut off the family line from which it was prophesied that Messiah would come.
“Before she travailed, she brought forth;
Second, because after Messiah was born, Satan did / does NOT want the Mashiach to return a second time to deliver Israel from her future travail in the Time of Jacob's Trouble and establish His Kingdom.
However, let's look at three specific historical events designed by the enemy of Israel:
▪ The enemy tried to destroy the Hebrew boys in Moses' day under Pharaoh.
▪ The enemy tried to destroy ALL the Hebrews in Esther's day under Haman.
▪ The enemy tried to destroy the Hebrew boys in Yeshua's (Jesus') day under Herod.
~ Satan will try again to destroy the Jews ~

The name "Jew" was first used to refer to someone from the tribe of Judah. Later, after the return from the 70 year captivity in Babylon―in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah―the name "Jew" was used to refer to anyone from any of the 12 tribes. However, the tribe of Judah seemed to make up the larger portion of the remnant of Israel. The children of Israel were originally called "Hebrews."
Concerning the term "Hebrew," it is interesting that after the Children of Israel finished wandering for 40 years, and before they passed over the Jordan River into the Promised Land, they lodged for three days at the brink of the Jordan River. Joshua, their leader after Moshe, sent officers through the camp who commanded the people as: "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your G-d, and the priests―the Levites―bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it.”
“Yet there shall be a space between you and the ark, about 2,000 cubits (1,000 yards or 914 meters) by measure. Do not come near the ark, so that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before." (Tanakh: Sefer Y'hoshua / Book of Joshua.)
The Hebrew root word for "passed" used [in previous text] is "abar" [ah-var] which means "to pass over, go through, pass beyond, or to make a transition [figuratively or literally]." To arrive INSIDE your own personal Promised Land, you will have to go through a TRANSITION! The Hebrew word "abar" also means "to pass from one side to the other side."
Interestingly enough, a derivative of the word "abar" is "ibriy" which means "Hebrew" and is the ethnic description of Abraham and his seed line, who was a descendant of “Eber”―the great grandson of Noah's son Shem.
Genesis 14:13 / Bereshith talks about "Abram the Hebrew." Exodus 7:16 / Shemot mentions "the LORD G-d of the Hebrews." Here "Hebrews" represents a tribe of Semites (sons of Shem).
Abraham "crossed over" the Euphrates River from Haran to Canaan, the land G-d promised him. How did he do it―through OBEDIENCE! Abraham, with his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot, had originally left Ur of the Chaldees with his father, Terah, and arrived in Haran. It's possible the LORD had wanted Terah to take the trip of faith from Haran and he may not have obeyed; possibly that is why G-d chose Abraham.
FAST FORWARD: The extended war in Iraq played―and will continue for a while―to play an important part in End Time prophecy: 1. for Israel; 2. for the Middle East; and, 3. for the West. The result will be a paradigm shift in world commerce, geopolitics and religion. Plus ... Israel will be swept up in a vortex of persecution. But wait …
With the President of USA, Donald Trump, declaring Jerusalem as [undisputed] Capital of Israel―and with observed synergistic economic prosperity of those who agree―an emotional “brain twist” will result in Islamic nations: jealousy AND attention.
REFLECTION: What politicians. educators and the news media do NOT realize―rather, do NOT understand―is that President Trump of the USA is anointed by G-d to help Israel. That's WHY in just one year the economy of the USA has surged: corporations investing in development plus training employees; unexpected bonuses to employees; corporations returning to USA from abroad; stock market soaring to new highs.
Dead people do not understand life; unbelievers do not understand ... nor comprehend ... the anointing: what it is; why it is imparted; and from where it originates. Donald Trump―in his office of President―is anointed as much as Cyrus was who commanded the Jerusalem to be rebuilt and the foundations of the Temple to be laid. Cyrus was a pagan ruler! Isaiah refers to pagan Cyrus as “the Lord's anointed.” (See Isaiah 44:28 – 45:7.) This prophecy―and G-d calling Cyrus by name―was 150 years before the happening!
Remember, in Torah G-d promised “I will bless those who bless Israel.” [Several places in Bereshith / Genesis.] Even Middle East Islamic countries could be blessed if they were to “wake up” and work with Israel ... helping Israel.
THINK ABOUT IT. Don't forget though: Ezekiel tells us that in the future Iran will―with Turkey, Russia, North East Africa and neighboring Muslim countries―attack Israel and be wiped out by G-d.
REPEAT: There will be a paradigm shift in world commerce, geopolitics and religion. Plus ... Israel will be swept up in a vortex of GREAT BLESSING … with persecution. Israel's prosperity will be a "thorn" in the sides of her Islamic enemies. But WAIT ... Remember what Isaiah tells us will happen in the future: "For Adonai-Tzva’ot has blessed him: 'Blessed be Egypt my people, Ashur [Assyria = Syria & Iraq] the work of my hands and Israel my heritage.'”
Babylon, in the land of Shinar, was the headquarters of the first world autocrat. His name was “Nimrod.” Scripture―in the original Hebrew language, and also supported by rabbis―shows that Nimrod was “a mighty hunter against―or in opposition to―the LORD.” Concerning Nimrod, See Torah, Bereshith / Genesis 10:8-9.
Just as Babylon was the headquarters for the first world dictator―Nimrod―so the NEW BABYLON will be the headquarters of NEW NIMROD: the FINAL New Global Governance dictator: a despot and worse than tyrant.
The New Global Governance leader will be chosen by the NWO―New World Order (or whatever name the organization ascribes to itself at that time). He will be the FALSE mashiach (messiah) and the greatest enemy that Israel and the Jewish People have ever known.
Turkey will probably become the headquarters for the New Global Governance. In due time it will become obvious that it will in effect be the (clandestine) headquarters of the NIO: New Islamic Order. As the Global Governance Center, Turkey will come into position―may break away from its previous European and western associations―and, as the Eastern leg of the old Roman Empire, it will be the epicenter of Islamic geopolitical and financial concourse, fostering the development of New Babylon: international commercial, political and religious centre of the world. New Babylon will work in alignment―for a season―with the New Global Governance leader: the FALSE Messiah.
New Babylon will later be destroyed by a confederacy of Ten Regional Leaders―who actually support her development at first―and who align themselves with the dictates of the New Governance Leader: the FALSE Messiah.
TAKE AWAY: Israel's leaders must pray for discernment and insight in the coming commercial, geopolitical and religious shifts. Watch Turkey, watch the UN and its evolution / transition into the New World Governance ... and watch for the New Nimrod: a man of “supposed” peace who will appear on the world stage.
This New Nimrod will broker a seven year peace agreement―a covenant just like Daniel prophesied―and in the middle of the seven years, he (the False Mashiach) will go into the newly built Temple of the Jews and declare that he is G-d: the overspreading of abomination just like Daniel prophesied (and an anti-type of Antiochus IV Epiphanes who desecrated the Temple around 167 BCE.
Antiochus Epiphanes is a tyrannical figure in Jewish history, and he is also a foreshadowing of the coming Antichrist. The prophet Daniel predicts an atrocity in the temple in the end times (Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11.) prophecy concerning a coming ruler who will cause the offerings to cease in the temple and set up “an abomination that causes desolation.” What Antiochus IV did certainly qualifies as an abomination; however, Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) speaks of Daniel’s prophecy as having a still-future fulfillment. (See Brit Chadashah: Matthew 24:15-16; Mark 13:14; Luke 21:20-21). The False Mashiach (Antichrist)―the New Nimrod―will model Antiochus Ephiphanes in his great pride, blasphemous actions, and hatred of the Jews.
After this―in the remaining 42 months of the seven year covenant―will be the Time of Jacob's Trouble (Jeremiah 30:6-7) ... the worst time for the Jewish People (and the believing Gentiles) ... they have ever known: mega-worse than the Nazi Holocaust under Nazi Germany. But Israel shall be saved out of it!
“For I will restore your health, I will heal you of your wounds,” says ADONAI
With Israel’s great prosperity and ascendancy through technology, natural resources and humanitarian efforts―with the wealth of the goyim (nations) coming into her―will come great persecution―again―that will result in the the combined armed forces of the New Global Governance PLUS the Islamic enemies of Israel against Jerusalem.
THEN ... In a nanosecond the REAL Mashiach (Messiah) will come from Heaven to the Mount of Olives and bring the FINAL deliverance and victory to believing Jews in Israel. Be ready … put your faith in Him. You can know the Mashiach TODAY ... and make sure you do, before the real birth pains come to pass from travail in the Time of Jacob's Trouble.
“Call out to me, and I will answer you—I will tell you great things,
“Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD:
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
