Focus On Jerusalem Prophecy Ministry
The Mountains of Israel
2
The Prince of Persia, and The Chief Prince of
Meshech
  • An Exposition of Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39

The Mountains of Israel
3
Genesis 101-5 Now these are the generations of
the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth and
unto them were sons born after the flood. The
sons of Japheth Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and
Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the
sons of Gomer Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and
Togarmah. And the sons of Javan Elishah, and
Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the
isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands
every one after his tongue, after their families,
in their nations.

(GOD of Israel) .............. I am against
thee, O Gog..
Ezekiel 387-8 Be thou prepared, and prepare
for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are
assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto
them. After many days thou shalt be visited in
the latter years thou shalt come into the land
that is brought back from the sword, and is
gathered out of many people, against the
mountains of Israel, (Golan) which have been
always waste but it is brought forth out of the
nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

Princes of This World
  • Ephesians 612 For we wrestle not against flesh
    and blood, but against principalities, against
    powers, against the rulers of the darkness of
    this world, against spiritual wickedness in high
    places. (celestial--heavens)
  • John 1430 Hereafter I will not talk much with
    you for the prince of this world cometh, and
    hath nothing in me.
  • Daniel 1012-13 Then said he unto me, Fear not,
    Daniel for from the first day that thou didst
    set thine heart to understand, and to chasten
    thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and
    I am come for thy words. But the Prince of the
    kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty
    days but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes,
    came to help me and I remained there with the
    kings of Persia. (Prince of Grecia)
    (Michael--Prince of Israel)

Promised Land
6
Arches, Kuriotes, Exousias
  • Exousia (powers) superhuman masters
  • Kuriote (dominions) Masters of air/universe
  • Arche (Prince or Principalities) (on earth)
  • Prince A powerful ruler, or the rule of someone
    in authority. The word (often found in the
    plural) may refer to human rulers (Titus 31),
    demonic spirits (Romans 838 Eph. 612 Col.
    215), powerful angels and demons in general
    (Eph. 310 Col. 116), or (especially when used
    in the singular) any type of ruler other than God
    Himself (Eph. 121)

Who is GOG ?
  • "The sudden appearance of "Gog" in the Ezekiel
    text, without any apparent background from other
    passages, has puzzled commentators for centuries.
    From the context, it is clearly the title of the
    leader of the people of the land of Magog. Still,
    it seems inconsistent with God's established
    style to have such a key figure emerge in the
    text without a linkage of some sort. There is,
    however, a provocative reference that has been
    widely overlooked in the Book of Amos. The
    traditional rendering of Amos 71 reads as
    follows "Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto
    me and, behold, he formed grasshoppers in the
    beginning of the shooting up of the latter
    growth and, lo, it was the latter growth after
    the king's mowings."
  • Our English Bible takes its translation from the
    Masoretic text, a 9th century source. However, an
    earlier translation of the Old Testament into
    Greek, known as the Septuagint, embodies a
    different rending of Amos 71 "Thus the Lord
    showed me, and behold a swarm of locusts were
    coming, and behold, one of the young devastating
    locusts was Gog, the King."
  • The identification of Gog as the king of the
    locusts would have profound implications.
  • Proverbs 3027 reveals that "the locusts have no
    king," implying that the "locusts" of Amos 7 are
    not intended to be natural locusts, but an idiom
    for something else. (demons ?)
  • We encounter a similar passage in Revelation
    chapter 9 where locusts there are described as
    having a king, and so are clearly a demon host.
    (Abaddon or Apollyon)
  • The passage in Amos 71 suggests that Gog is the
    king of the demon locusts, and this would put an
    entirely new light on the Gog of Ezekiel 38 and
    39....."

8
  • Ezekiel 381-9
  • And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
    Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of
    Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal,
    and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the
    Lord GOD Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the
    chief prince of Meshech and Tubal And I will
    turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and
    I will bring thee forth, and all thine army,
    horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all
    sorts of armour, even a great company with
    bucklers and shields, all of them handling
    swords 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
    thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself,
    thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto
    thee, and be thou a guard unto them. After many
    days thou shalt be visited in the latter years
    thou shalt come into the land that is brought
    back from the sword, and is gathered out of many
    people, against the mountains of Israel, which
    have been always waste but it is brought forth
    out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely
    all of them. Thou shalt ascend and come like a
    storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the
    land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people
    with thee.

The Land of Magog
  • Magog --gt the Scythians --gt Russians
  • Many ancient sources have clearly identified
    "Magog" as referring to the "Scythians" which
    were the ancestors of the Russians.
  • The Moslems refer to Gog and Magog as Vadjudj wa
    madjudj in the Koran. Philo, a 1st century
    historian identifies Magog with southern Russia.
    The Great Wall of China, in an 8th century
    reference, was called Sud Yagog et Magog "The
    Rampart of Gog and Magog."
  • In Ezekiel 3815, it says "And thou shalt come
    from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and
    many people with thee ..." The "north parts" is
    literally the "extreme, or uttermost" parts of
    the north.

10
Hooks-In-The-Jaws
  • "..... Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the
    chief prince of Meshech and Tubal And I will
    turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and
    I will bring thee forth, and all thine 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
    swords Ezekiel 383-4

11
Prophesied Geo-political Factors For The Russian
Invasion
  • Russia leads an armament buildup with ME allies
  • Tarshish Protector of Sheba Dedan
  • The mountains of Israel---latter years
    (Golan)
  • Land brought back from the sword (war-Islam)
  • Wasteland to productive (Deserted to populous)
  • Jewish Aliya (Diaspora reversal)
  • Western Antichrist crafts peace deal(settles
    Temple Mount dispute) (Jerusalem resolution)
  • Dwelling safely (secured regional peace deal)
  • Unwalled villages (peace safety) (security
    fence)

12
The Allies of (Rosh) Russia
  • The main ally listed is Persia. The
    identification of "Persia" includes the
    descendents of Elam, the 1st son of Shem and is
    the modern state of Iran, a key component in the
    jaw-hooks.
  • Cush Ethiopia - This refers to the land south
    of Egypt, usually translated as Ethiopia.
    Originally Cush referred to a piece of territory
    lying between the 2nd and 3rd cataracts of the
    Nile.
  • Phut (or Put) Libya - the 3rd son of Ham.
    Josephus identifies him as the founder of Libya.
    In a connotative sense, it is associated with
    "North Africa" populated by the Berbers and
    tribes distinct from Cush, and thus, reaches from
    Libya and Algeria to Tunisia and Morocco.

13
Rosh Chief of Meshech
  • It has been said that the only prophecy in the
    Bible that invokes a modern Gentile power by name
    is found in Ezekiel 38 and 39. There, we find
    Russia, called "Rosh" in the Hebrew of the Old
    Testament. In the King James translation, its
    name is somewhat obscured, seen in the word,
    "chief (rahsh) in the following passage
  • "And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
    "Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land
    of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal,
    and prophesy against him, "And say, Thus saith
    the Lord GOD Behold I am against thee, O Gog,
    the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal" (Ezkiel
    381-3).
  • The Hebrew text of verse two, which actually
    reads, "prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal," kc,u
    lan atr thab nasieh rosh, meshech vtubal.
    "Rosh" is a place name, rather than a positional
    title. Today, any standard Hebrew text refers to
    Russia by using the proper noun, "Rosh." Many
    authorities add that Meshech and Tubal are the
    names of Scythian tribes, whose names have been
    standardized as modern place names. Meshech is
    Russias capital, Moscow. Therefore, Magog is
    Russia. Its prince and leader is Gog. Russia has
    dabbled with the extension of its power into the
    Middle East.

14
Ezekiel 38 9-12
  • 9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm,
    thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land,
    (Air Force?) thou, and all thy bands, and many
    people with thee.
  • 10 Thus saith the Lord GOD It shall also come
    to pass, that at the same time shall things come
    into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil
    thought (NUCLEAR?)
  • 11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land
    of unwalled villages I will go to them that are
    at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling
    without walls, (peace and safety) and having
    neither bars nor gates,
  • 12 To take a spoil, (Land or Oil?) and to take
    a prey to turn thine hand upon the desolate
    places that are now inhabited, (Israel) and upon
    the people that are gathered out of the nations,
    which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in
    the midst of the land.

15
Ezekiel 38 13-16
  • 13 Sheba, and Dedan, (Arabia) and the merchants
    of Tarshish, (West) with all the young lions
    thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to
    take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to
    take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to
    take away cattle and goods, to take a great
    spoil?
  • 14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto
    Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD In that day when my
    people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not
    know it? (comprehensive multi-lateral peace)
  • 15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of
    the north parts, (Uttermost part of North) thou,
    and many people with thee, all of them riding
    upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army
  • 16 And thou shalt come up against my people of
    Israel, as a cloud to cover the land (Air
    Assault) it shall be in the latter days, and I
    will bring thee against my land, that the heathen
    may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee,
    O Gog, before their eyes.

16
Tarshish - Western Powers?
  • Tarshish may be the biblical term for the West.
    Some have positively identified it as the modern
    city of Tortosa, on the Spanish east coast.
    Others have placed it as far north as the ancient
    seaport of Roman Londinium, todays London,
    England. However, it describes not a single
    location, but the Gentile merchant world outside
    ancient Israel.
  • The merchants of Tarshish began as the ancient
    Phoenician traders, whose ships circled the
    Mediterranean and exited it through the Strait of
    Gibraltar, before sailing northward toward ports
    in the territory we now call Europe. They also
    sailed southward around Africas west coast, then
    around its southern cape, heading toward the
    ports of call in the east. Some sources say that
    they sailed as far west as the future territories
    of North and South America. These merchants were
    the early global traders. Tarshish has become the
    generic term for their trade in the world at
    large.
  • Tarshish may represent the Great Merchants of the
    Earth (Revelation 18 Commercial Babylon)

17
Sheba and Dedan
  • Sheba and Dedan have a specific reaction to the
    offensive from the north. Analyzing it closely
    reveals that it contains clues to the disposition
    of world powers.
  • Sheba and Dedan react to the offensive, not with
    reprisals, but with a question
  • " Art thou come to take a spoil? In other
    words, they question Gogs motives, and that of
    its allies. Perhaps through diplomatic channels,
    they inquire as to Russias intentions. They wish
    to know whether or not Gog desires to rob them of
    their riches. As we shall see, they are very rich.

18
A Conspicuously Absent Ally
  • Syria, A Major Enemy of Israel Absent from
    Ezekiel 38 list
  • Notice, Syria, an extremely anti-Semetic country
    is not listed in this battle. This may be because
    they have previously - by the time of the Magog
    Invasion - been dealt a blow. Such is described
    in Isaiah chapter 17, Jeremiah 4923-27 ...
  • "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is
    taken away from being a city, and it shall be a
    ruinous heap.... And behold at eveningtide
    trouble and before the morning he is not. This
    is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot
    of them that rob us." Isaiah 171, 14
  • "Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to
    flee, and fear hath seized on her anguish and
    sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.
    How is the city of praise not left, the city of
    my joy!" Jeremiah 4924-25
  • Damascus, the capital of Syria, is known to be
    the oldest continuously inhabited city in the
    world!... It has never yet been "taken away from
    being a city" ...
  • Presently 24 terrorist organizations have their
    bases in Damascus. If Syria were fully functional
    when the Magog Invasion occurs, you can bet they
    would be in on any invasion of Israel. But God
    declares that Damascus will become a ruinous
    heap. This is yet future... and could be imminent
    as the Iraq-Terror war spills over.

19
The Burden of Damascus
  • The Absence of Syria, Irans Present Axis of Evil
    Partner
  • As the most striking point when reading the
    listing of the Ezekiel 38 Magog invasion
    coalition strike-force upon Israel, Syrias
    absence from the alliance means the Russian
    invasion is expressly pinpointed towards the
    mountains of Israel, which probably would include
    the contested Golan Heights. Syria and Israel
    have been locked in total disagreement about the
    possession of this very area ever since the 1973
    Yom Kippur War. Russia has traditionally
    supported Syrias claims to the Golans
    mountainous region. The absence of Syria in this
    coalition hints of a prior strategic exchange
    (with Israel ?)
  • Damascus, the capitol city of Syria, is the
    international headquarters for virtually every
    Middle East terrorist organization. The absence
    of Syria from the Magog coalition indicates that
    the prophesied Burden of Damascus event is a
    sequence of events that prefigures the Magog
    invasion. It is highly likely, given the present
    geo-political world situation and the strategies
    involved in the American-led war on terror that
    Damascus will be devastated either by Israel, the
    US, or become victim to an international nuclear
    exchange, as the War on Terror proceeds.

The Iranian Revolution
It is important to remember that, until 1979,
not only was Iran a close ally of the United
States, it was also one of the most heavily
Westernized nations in the Islamic world. Then
with the Islamic revolution, Shah Pahlavi was
deposed, and the fanatical Islamic Mullahs came
to power, and Iran quickly became Americas worst
nightmare. Prophecy scholars should have taken
note of this amazing turnabout in Iran, for it
was the landmark event that laid the
geo-political foundation for Persia's inclusion
in Ezekiels Gog-Magog scenario. Prior to 1979,
it didn't seem to make any sense that a western
friendly Iran, could find itself part of a
Russian-led invasion on the mountains of Israel?
The greatest geo-political and diplomatic mistake
of modern American history was the disastrous
strategy decisions of the Jimmy Carter
administration, (with Zbigniev Brezinski
formulating foreign policy) when America stood by
and let Ayatollah Khomeini succeed in expelling
the American friendly Shah so that the radical
Khomeinin could return from exile and take Iran
in a headlong fundamentalist charge back to the
Quran-glorified 7th-century culture of the
Arabian Peninsula. This era of the Islamic
Revolution is what started the modern worldwide
Muslim fundamentalist revival that threatens the
security of the United States today, and gave
impetus to the Jihadist terrorist ideology!
Virtually all the terrorism in the world today
comes from the seeds of the ayatollah's demonic
inspiration. The prospect of these fanatical
Muslim fundamentalist zealots possessing
nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles should frighten
the entire Western world. It should drive us into
immediate action to prevent it at any costs. This
nuclear time bomb is already ticking and the
window of opportunity to intercept an Islamic
terror-holocaust is quickly closing. In the
interim, the US and Israel are squarely the
intended targets of Islamic terrorism. It is only
a matter of time until this bubble must burst.
22
Iran and the Axis of Evil
  • Iran is a nation that figures prominently in the
    news these days. Three years ago (Sept. 2001)
    after the terrorist attacks upon America,
    President George Bush mentioned the nation of
    Iran and depicted it as being one of the
    notorious members of the now infamous Axis of
    Evil nations. Still, most people in the West
    know very little about Iran, and the vast
    majority of Americans are completely unaware of
    the history of the US relationship with Iran, and
    the fact that the region of Iran actually has had
    a long and significant role in world affairs.
  • While Persia has had ties deeply rooted in
    world history, the direct American-Iranian
    relationship only commenced in the late 1930s.
    Persia joined the allied forces against Germany
    in 1943, and thus the World War II Mid-east
    theatre provided the stage that began the rather
    brief history of the US-Iranian relationship. It
    is a relationship that has also undergone a
    complete about face since the 1970s. Within the
    scope of this remarkable turn in geo-political
    affairs in the international relationship between
    Iran (Persia) and the United States are a host of
    highly significant factors relative to the
    prophesied signs of the times, and imminent world
    events in these Last Days.

23
The Evil Principality of Persia Arises Again
On November 4, 1979, some Iranian militants under
the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomenis direction seized
the US Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 American
hostages, and threatening them with death.
Khomeini refused all appeals, and instigated an
environment of hostility and war towards the
United States, calling America the Great Satan!
Iran, or Persia, has been in the center of an
unseen warfare from ancient times. Daniel was
highly favored of God and privileged to have God
pull back the curtain of history and time and
briefly expose Daniel to the wars that continue
in Heaven, and that still affect events on the
Earth. Daniel prayed for Divine insight into the
meaning of some prophecies God gave him about the
future of his people Israel. Daniels vision
reveals the fact that there are mighty fallen
angels and demons that influence earthly leaders.
And within God's permission, they even control
earthly dominions. The "Prince of Persia" was
able to hinder Gods archangel Gabriel. It was
only with the help of the archangel Michael that
Gabriel was able to subdue this hindrance.
Michael is the special guardian Prince of the
Israeli nation.
24
Wiping Israel off the Map
If you follow the news you may have seen this
picture, of Iran's President Ahmadinejad speaking
at the "World Without Zionism" conference where
he spoke of wiping "Israel off the map." (But in
this photo you can only see a portion of the
graphic)
Israel
25
America First, Then Israel
Is it possible for us to witness a world without
America and Zionism? This slogan and this goal
are attainable, and surely can be achieved! - IRAN
Iran is the chief sponsor of international
terrorism through its multi-networked Terror-ops
center based in Damascus, Syria and it is also
the Leader of the infamous Axis of Evil groups of
Nations that is seeking the destruction of the
United States, a goal which has a side-appeal
to both Russia and China!
Yes, that is the USA already at the bottom of the
hourglass. Notice that the USA is already broken
in the bottom of the hourglass prior to the fall
of Israel.
The Mountains of Israel
26
The Prince of Persias (Iran) Goal
  • Irans former President Khatami flatly stated
    that Iran want nukes to destroy Israel. He
    insists that since Israel is such a small country
    that it cannot sustain a nuclear exchange with a
    much larger country and survive! He concludes
    that the intense collateral damage that may be
    suffered by Iran in a nuclear exchange with
    Israel is a price that Islam is willing to pay to
    exterminate Israel once and for all.

Its Allahs will!
July 10, 2006---Ahmadinejad Conditions for
Removal of Israel Are at Hand
27
Russias Putin Warns US
Putin's Russia is arming Syria Iran, and
obstructing US efforts to get the Mullahs to stop
their nuclear ambitions. It is no surprise, since
Russia obstructed US efforts in Iraq, and the
Russian ambassador to Iraq passed on US war plans
to Saddam before the American invasion. Even more
disturbing is the fact that Russia was behind the
scenes moving the missing Iraqi WMDs out of Iraq
into Syria before the US invaded.
Russian President Vladimir Putin speaking in his
address to the nation in Moscow May 10, 2006.
Putin issued a veiled warning to the United
States not to take any unauthorized (UN) military
action against Iran, and its nuke program
28
Russian Nuclear Roulette
  • By using the Iranian nuclear wildcard, Putin is
    hoping to reduce Americas preeminent position in
    the Middle East, but it is a scheme that Bible
    Prophecy indicates could backfire on Russia, and
    end up with Iran and the Islamic world sinking
    its hooks in Russias jaws. Recently, Russia
    test-launched a missile system that allegedly can
    maneuver in mid-flight, allowing it to dodge
    defenses. The missile, said Putin renders any
    anti- missile system defenseless. Since then,
    Putin has advanced these new anti-defense
    missiles to arm Islamic terrorists, through the
    governments of Iran and Syria. He has also
    enabled Iran to develop nukes and the Shahab-4
    missile. Six years ago, President Bush met Putin
    for the first time, and told the world that he
    had looked into Putins eyes and found a good
    friend, and a man America could trust. Well,
    President Bush needs to take another look. Russia
    is on a fast track to being the Evil Empire
    again. Russias involvement in arming the Axis of
    Evil is preparatory work to destabilize the
    region and preparing its allies for a move into
    the Middle East!

Is the evil empire thinking about a Nuclear
assault? Judging from Russias motivation to
reduce Americas fortress position in the Middle
East, and its strategy in arming a nuclear Iran,
Russia is obviously readying herself for the
Ezekiel invasion!
29
The Genius of Asymmetrical Warfare
  • 'Asymmetrical warfare' is another name for
    stateless terrorism. (or secretly
    state-sponsored) In this model, Iran supplies
    weapons and funding to terrorist groups to
    conduct operations against enemies of Iran that
    can't be traced back to Tehran for retaliation.
    Using asymmetrical warfare and nuclear weapons,
    Iran could use sub-contracted sleeper cells to
    strike an enemy, anytime, anywhere, without fear
    of immediate retribution or retaliation. It is
    obvious that no non-nuclear state would ever dare
    to counter-attack a nuclear Iran, and that no
    nuclear state could diplomatically afford to risk
    a nuclear exchange without incontrovertible
    evidence that Iran was responsible.
  • Asymmetrical warfare is also a client stratagem
    of Super-power wannabees! (Russia China) (US
    utilizes military companies)

30
Russia is HOOKED!
  • Israel Intelligence officials say that the
    multiplying missile power of Iran, Syria and
    Hizbullah has reached the level of posing "the
    gravest threat in modern times to the very
    existence of the Jewish State." Israel is
    pleading with the United States for swift
    military action to "wipe out this triangle of
    peril." Iran's ballistic missiles, Syria's
    upgraded Scuds and Hizbullah's bulging arsenal of
    short-range missiles in south Lebanon have
    rendered Israel vulnerable to the gravest peril
    it has ever faced. Joint action by Israel and the
    US is imperative.
  • Current estimates by the IDF are that Iran will
    produce a functioning nuclear weapon in two to
    three years. It is Iran's ideology of hatred that
    disturbs Israeli intelligence circles. According
    to diplomatic sources in Jerusalem, the wildcard
    in Iran's nuclear gambit is Russia.

31
Russia and China Coddle Iran And North Korea, and
Sudan and Palestine
At the June, 2006 SCC, Ahmadinejad Called for
Asian Unity (Iran's president has told Central
Asian, Russian and Chinese leaders they should
co-operate to prevent what he called threats from
domineering powers, a reference to the US.)
Russia and China have become increasingly
concerned about the presence of the US in Central
Asia.

Caspian Sea Central Asia Energy Resources for
EU, or Russia?
The new Caspian Sea oil pipeline, (2005) which
crosses Turkey from Baku to Ceyhan on the
Mediterranean Coast, is intended to lessen the
West from its reliance on Middle Eastern oil.
This pipeline may prove to be a factor in the
rise of the Russian-Iranian led invasion of
Israel, and also to counter the moves of the
Antichrist in the region, as described by the
prophet Ezekiel. The Caspian Sea oil basins
reside in an area formerly occupied by the Soviet
Union. The Caspian Sea pipeline is the oil flow
that is meant to save the West, and insure that
the instability and competition for Arab oil does
not obstruct the West from enjoying its
superpower status.
33
Moscow A Cauldron of Jealousy
  • Located over one thousand miles due north of
    Jerusalem, Moscow continues to recover from its
    humiliating loss of superpower status in the
    early 1989. The man leading the forward charge is
    Vladimir Putin, who has moved Russia into a
    geo-political chess match against the West, by
    manipulating the Middle East situation.
  • Unlike some Bible prophecy scholars, I do not
    expect the Russian-led invasion to be the next
    major event (pre-trib) on the Lords prophetic
    calendar. I propose the textual evidence in
    Ezekiel 39 and Revelation 16 strongly suggests
    that the northern-led invasion, involving Iran
    and other Mid-east powers listed in Ezekiel 38,
    will instead occur during the latter reign of the
    Antichrist (Rev 13-14). This would be prior to
    the time of the final battle of Armageddon, and
    possibly spark the final world war, which wages
    for the final 42 months.

34
The Next World Order
  • Russia and China demand a multi-polar Global
    World Order in lieu of a US-led uni-polar Global
    World Order, and are working jointly to dethrone
    the US as the worlds lone superpowerthrough
    destabilization
  • Bible Prophecy indicates that TEN Kings will
    emerge to establish the final world order. (Rev.
    1712-13)
  • The Ten Kings will grant world leadership to the
    Antichrist ( 3 being subdued--abase) (Daniel
    724)

Osama bin Laden there will be no peace for
America until there is peace in Palestine!
Palestinians in West Bank Celebrated the attack
on America Sept 11. Muslims and Palestinians
paraded in the streets throughout the West Bank
and the Arab world, celebrating the attack on
America!
The terror attacks were because of US foreign
policy in the Middle East...and US support of
Israel!
36
The War on Terror is a war ultimately about
Israel, but initially it is about Americas
support for Israel,
Jerusalem is the apple of Gods eye
37
Death to Israel.. Death to the USA..
The two Judeo-Christian nations of the world are
especially hated by the demonic forces that are
working to empower the Antichrist! Satans
strategy presently is to cripple the US, then
move the nations to encircle Israel
38
Persias Position at the Point
  • Geographically, Iran dominates the northern
    shores of the Persian Gulf, with command of the
    Straits of Hormuz, the most important
    oil-chokepoint on the globe. It is within easy
    striking distance of about 50 percent of the
    world's oilfields those in Saudi Arabia, etc.
    Iran itself has enormous proven energy reserves
    12 percent of the world's oil and 20 percent of
    the world's natural gas reserves. Oil revenue and
    its supply are important political and economic
    weapons. Iran is the land-bridge between the two
    very important energy zones of Central Asia and
    the Persian Gulf. Iran is the most important
    player in Central Asia. It borders 15 countries,
    (including five Islamic Republics that were
    formerly occupied by the Soviet Union)
  • Iraq is the Wests vital interest at the Point

Ezekiel 38 17 - 23
  • 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD Art thou he 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 thee against
    them?
  • 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.

42
At The Same Time!
  • God has specifically declared that at the Same
    Time that Gog moves against the land of Israel,
    that HIS fury shall come up in his face
  • The direct result of Gogs invasion is not the
    Empire of the Antichrist, but rather the judgment
    of the nations and their submission to Jesus
    Christ!

26 And all the kings of the north, far and near,
one with another, and all the kingdoms of the
world, which are upon the face of the earth and
the king of Sheshach shall drink after
them. 27 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, Thus
saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel Drink
ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise
no more, because of the SWORD which I will send
among you. 28 And it shall be, if they refuse to
take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt
thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts
Ye shall certainly drink. 29 For, lo, I begin to
bring evil on the city which is called by my
name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye
shall not be unpunished for I will call for a
sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth,
saith the LORD of hosts.

McArthurs Warning!
  • As I look back upon the long, tortuous trail from
    those grim days of Bataan and Corregidor, when an
    entire world lived in fear, when democracy was on
    the defensive everywhere, when modern
    civilization trembled in the balance, I thank a
    merciful God that he has given us the faith, the
    courage and the power from which to mold victory.
    We have known the bitterness of defeat and the
    exultation of triumph, and from both we have
    learned there can be no turning back. We must go
    forward to preserve in peace what we won in war.
  • A new era is upon us. Even the lesson of
    victory itself brings with it profound concern,
    both for our future security and the survival of
    civilization. The destructiveness of the war
    potential, through progressive advances in
    scientific discovery, has in fact now reached a
    point which revises the traditional concepts of
    war. Men since the beginning of time have
    sought peace.... Military alliances, balances of
    power, leagues of nations, all in turn failed,
    leaving the only path to be by way of the
    crucible of war. We have had our last chance. If
    we do not now devise some greater and more
    equitable system, Armageddon will be at our door.
  • The problem basically is theological and involves
    a spiritual recrudescence, and demands a
    resolution of the spirit if we are to save the
    flesh.

The Winepress of Gods Wrath
  • Ezek 3917-20 And, thou son of man, thus saith
    the Lord GOD Speak unto every feathered fowl,
    and to every beast of the field, Assemble
    yourselves, and come gather yourselves on every
    side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you,
    even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of
    Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
  • 18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and
    drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of
    rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of
    them fatlings of Bashan.
  • 19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and
    drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice
    which I have sacrificed for you.
  • 20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with
    horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with
    all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

More Gog Magog
  • Revelation 207-8 And when the thousand years are
    expired, (Millennium) 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.
  • Since scripture relative to the
    expression Gog and Magog signifies all the
    armies of the earth, it is reasonable to
    understand Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 in the
    same way. Ezekiel 38 will not merely be an
    invasion of Israel by a Russian-Arab coalition
    alone, as is usually expressed, but by all of the
    worlds armies under the principal leadership
    of the Antichrist. God declares that He will draw
    them there to destroy them for their evil
    treatment of His people, Israel, and thereby
    demonstrate to the whole world that He is God
  • Rev 1717 For God hath put in their hearts to
    fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their
    kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God
    shall be fulfilled.

    of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire
    and burn the weapons, both the shields and the
    bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the
    handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn
    them with fire seven years So that they shall
    take no wood out of the field, neither cut down
    any out of the forests for they shall burn the
    weapons with fire and they shall spoil those
    that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed
    them, saith the Lord GOD. (Deut. 31 year
    of releasefirst Millennial Sabbath year)
  • Ezek 3912-16 And seven months shall the house
    of Israel be burying of them, that they may

  • 13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury
    them and it shall be to them a renown the day
    that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
  • 14 And they shall sever out men of continual
    employment, passing through the land to bury with
    the passengers those that remain upon the face of
    the earth, to cleanse it after the end of seven
    months shall they search.
  • 15 And the passengers that pass through the land,
    when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up
    a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in

  • 23 And the heathen shall know that the house of
    Israel went into captivity for their iniquity
    because they trespassed against me, therefore hid
    I my face from them, and gave them into the hand
    of their enemies so fell they all by the sword.
  • 24 According to their uncleanness and according
    to their transgressions have I done unto them,
    and hid my face from them.
  • 25 Therefore thus saith 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
  • 26 After that they have borne their shame, and
    all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed
    against me, when they dwelt safely in their land,
    and none made them afraid.
  • 27 When I have brought them again from the
    people, and gathered them out of their enemies'
    lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of

    God, which caused them to be led into captivity
    among the heathen but I have gathered them unto
    their own land, and have left none of them any

    house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

  • Olmert Hopes For "Eternal Covenant" With Arabs
  • July 17.(FOJ) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said
    Monday that he hoped an "eternal covenant" could
    soon be signed between Israel and its neighbors.
    Prime Minister Olmerts vision of an eternal
    covenant must be convenient news for the MASTER
    Peace Crafter the Bible calls the Antichrist. The
    prophet Daniel spoke of such an opportunity
    opening the doorway for the rise of the
    Antichrist. Just last week, the Arab League
    announced that the Middle East Peace Process
    was dead, and required an overhaul, one that
    necessitated new on-the ground situations in
    Lebanon and, perhaps in Syria. The current Middle
    East Crisis is lending itself to the
    high-probability scenario that the false peace
    covenant of the Antichrist, made with Many, can
    be realized!
  • (Daniel 927 And he shall confirm the covenant
    with many for one week (7 years) and in the
    midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice
    and the oblation to cease, and for the
    overspreading of abominations he shall make it
    desolate, even until the consummation, and that
    determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
    Daniel 825 And through his policy also he shall
    cause craft to prosper in his hand and he shall
    magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall
    destroy many he shall also stand up against the
    Prince of princes but he shall be broken without
    hand.)
  • As the worlds G-8 leaders meet in the plush
    palace of Peter the Great in St. Petersburg,
    Russia, its attention has been diverted from its
    scheduled itinerary. The G-8 leaders had gathered
    to discuss the trade and organization structure
    of the Global powers. The Bible reveals that ten
    kings of the Last Days will tread down the whole
    earth, and agree with one mind to grant their
    power structure to the Antichrist. The G-8 is
    slated to become the G-10 on the near future,
    with the additions of India and China. The
    prophecies of Daniel portray these ten kings as
    ten toes on the great image of the Gentile world
    system of Global power. Daniel reveals that the
    Ten Kings, although uniting briefly to form a
    Global Authority, will not cleave together. The
    geo-political intangibles of this prophecy appear
    to be forming before our very eyes today. Russia
    and China are not cleaving with the US-UK
    positions on Korea or Iran, but the leaders are
    still pushing ahead to form their vision of a
    Global Trade and Security Union.
