(Before It's News)

In Ezekiel’s prophecy, Gog will be the leader of a great army that attacks the land of Israel.Gog is described as “of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal” (Ezekiel 38:2-3). Ezekiel’s battle of Gog and Magog occurs in the tribulation period, more specifically in the first 3 1/2 years. In the Book of Ezekiel Gog is the name of an individual and Magog the name of his land, in Genesis 10 Magog is a person, and in Revelation both Gog and Magog are nations (“the hostile nations of the world”).

  • “Ezekiel’s battle of Gog and Magog occurs in the tribulation period, more specifically in the first 3 1/2 years.”

    Not quite. He’s off by a little over a thousand years.

    The Gog and Magog prophecies in the Bible are not something that plays out in the dispensation we now find ourselves in. It plays out after the Millennial Reign. Here is the timeline of end time events in regards to the Second Coming, the 1,000 year Millennial Reign, the battle of Gog and Magog, and the new heavens and new earth:

    The Second Coming is when Jesus returns on the clouds:

    “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him…”
    —Revelation 1:7

    That is the end of this age, the end of mankind as we know it. The Second Coming occurs at the 7th trumpet, which coincides with the 3rd woe, which coincides with the rapture, or the meeting of the Lord in the clouds:

    “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
    —1st Thessalonians 4:17

    So believers meet Jesus in the clouds at the Second Coming (rapture) to be with Him forever more. Then the 1,000 year Millennial Reign takes place. Then after the Millennial Reign, Jesus sets foot upon the earth as described in chapter 14 of Zechariah:

    1 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
    2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
    3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
    4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
    5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
    6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
    7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

    —Zechariah 14:1-7

    Verses 2 and 3 above are the battle with Gog and Magog, which corresponds with Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 and Revelation chapter 20, which takes place after the 1,000 year Millennial Reign:

    7 And when the thousand years are expired, 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.
    9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

    —Revelation 20:7-9

    Notice above in Zechariah 14:6-7, it talks about the unique time, where it is always light. This corresponds to the new heavens and the new earth (which are created after the Millennium) and the new Jerusalem:

    23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
    24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
    25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

    —Revelation 21:23-25

    So to recap, the Second Coming/rapture occurs and believers meet Jesus in the clouds. It is from heaven where the saints reign over the earth from during the 1,000 year Millennial Reign. And then, after the 1,000 year Millennial Reign, the nations surround Jerusalem and the battle with Gog and Magog takes place where God utterly destroys them and Jesus sets foot upon the mount of Olives. And then the new heavens and new earth are created and the New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven and this is the unique time where there is no night in the New Jerusalem. It is then when the sons of God rule and reign over the earth from the New Jerusalem.

    So you religious self proclaimed peace lovers keep claiming, while you’re bombing innocent people back to the stone age for no reason what so ever,.. can’t you do the world a favour and get on and kill each other off already, with your biblical preplanned culling session?.. good riddance to bad rubbish. I’m sick of hearing that you bunch of cowards are ‘about to annihilate each other’. Stop procrastinating and get on with it already. The meek inherit the Earth… Atheists.
