    Default The Impending Invasion of Israel Series from Lamb & Lion

    Nathan Jones of Lamb&Lion is posting a series on Ezek 38 & 39. I'm going to post a link to each part in this thread.

    By Nathan Jones

    I almost never read the newspaper. Yuck! It leaves grime all over my hands. My wife says I only get the newspaper to read the funnies, which is true. I instead get all of my news from the Internet.

    Part of being the Web Minister for a Bible prophecy teaching ministry is reading up on the news everyday trying to see where current events are fitting into the overall biblical picture. With so many events today fulfilling Bible prophecy, finding those events is as easy as catching a raindrop in the downpour of a rainstorm. There is just so much going on right now that tells us that Jesus Christ is returning very soon.

    Here are just a few of the many events that have happened over the last few months that together combine to form a bigger prophetic picture. See as you read through the titles and article snippets if you can piece together just what that picture is.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - Ezekiel 38:1-6
    By Nathan Jones

    From the latest news headlines: Iran, Russia and Turkey have become allies. Fundamentalist Islam is uniting old Middle Eastern enemies against Israel. Russia is supplying rockets and weapons to those very same nations. Israel now has the means of becoming exceedingly wealthy.

    To the student of Bible prophecy, these and other modern developments combined form a very familiar scenario already foretold in ancient biblical writings. Some 2,600 years ago, the young prophet Ezekiel relayed God's passionate message, telling us that when these events fully play out the battle that will occur will end up changing the very face of the world. Nothing will be the same for anyone by the time the Gog-Magog Battle is over.

    To find out how today's headlines will eventually play out, let's inspect God's prophecy given to Ezekiel in the Book of Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - Ezekiel 38:7-17
    by Nathan Jones

    Ezekiel 38:1-6 foretells of a time when a great demonic leader from Russia will lead a coalition of nations such as Turkey, Iran, Lybia and the Sudan against Israel. Identified as "Gog," he will gather a great horde of invading armies together. What then will that horde be planning on doing? Ezekiel 38:7-17 gives us the chilling answer.

    Ezekiel 38:7-9 — An Advancing Storm

    It is interesting to note that in verse 8 Israel has recovered from a war. Which war will Israel supposed to be recovering from? Israel has waged many wars since its inception in May of 1948, and continues today to be in an extreme defensive position.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - Ezekiel 38:18-23
    by Nathan Jones

    Ezekiel 38:7-17 gives the motives for Gog's evil scheme — to plunder and loot an unsuspecting nation. Gog will use his massive coalition of nations to invade Israel's wealth. What will God's reaction be to Gog attacking the people who are the apple of His eye, and for what purposes does God intend to use this invasion? Ezekiel 38:18-23 gives us the answers.

    Ezekiel 38:18-22 — The Sword of God
    God's "hot anger," "zeal" and "fiery wrath" unleashes the very elements against the Gog-Magog coalition of armies. God not only plans on just destroying the armies, but He embarrasses them by having the various factions turning on and killing each other. Whoever is left alive, God then cracks the land out from under their feet, swallowing them with a mountain-shattering earthquake.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - Ezekiel 39:1-8
    By Nathan Jones

    Ezekiel 38:18-23 is God's unveiling of Himself to the world in a most dramatic fashion. Hopelessly outnumbered by the combined armies of Russia, Iran, Turkey, Sudan, Lybia and other Muslim nations and led by a demonically driven leader named Gog, Israel has no possible hope of surviving on their own. Then, God steps in. He smashes the armies with supernatural devastations of biblical proportions. The whole world then knows "that I am the LORD."

    What will be the fallout for Gog and what are God's purposes for such a public display of His power? Ezekiel 39:1-8 describes the tremendous aftermath.

    Ezekiel 39:1-6 — Raining Fire

    Chapters 38 and 39 combined are unique to the whole Bible because they give the most lengthy and detailed description of any prophetic battle, way moreso even than the Battle of Armageddon.

    Ezekiel 39 begins by adding more details to the Gog-Magog Battle and the armies' subsequent destruction.

    How will God drag Gog and his armies down to invade Israel? When God says "drag you along" we refer back to the hooks mentioned in Ezekiel 38:4. The ancient Assyrians used to like to humiliate the peoples they conquered. The Assyrians would put hooks into those they'd conquered's mouths or through the skin between their shoulder blades on their back. The "hooked" would then in humiliating defeat pull the Assyrian chariots all the way back to their homeland. And so, God is saying here that He is going to humiliate the Gog-Magog coalition.

    I think this would happen first.
    An Arab confederacy of Palestinians, Jordanians, Hamas, Hezbollah, Syrians, and Saudi’s, will plot against Israel . Israel will have to take them all on and will win. Then Russia will make a move.
    And God will deal with them.

    You really should grab a copy of Bill Salus' book Israelestine

    I'm almost half way thorough and it sounds like it backs up your thinking, and follows Psalm 83 as yet unfulfilled prophesy.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - Ezekiel 39:9-20 by Nathan Jones
    Ezekiel 39:1-8 describes the tremendous aftermath of the foiled Gog-Magog invasion. Before the massive coalition army can fire a single shot from their launching point on the mountains of Israel, God steps in and supernaturally devastates not only the invaders but also their homelands as well. Russia, Iran, Turkey, the 'Stans, Sudan, Lybia and other Muslim nations are reduced to a wasteland, and only one-sixth of their combined army remains, exiled to Siberia (Joel 2:20).

    For the nearly three-quarter million to a billion corpses left by God's hand to rot in the land of Israel, the biggest cleanup process in all of history is ready to begin. Ezekiel 39:9-20 unearths the gory funeral purification ritual.

    Ezekiel 39:9-20 unearths the gory funeral purification ritual needed to cleanse the land from almost a billion dead invaders' bodies. It will be up to this point the biggest cleanup job in all of human history.

    While the cleanup process is under way, a new process will be in the making. The largest national reawakening to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob since King Josiah commences (2 Kings 23:25). Ezekiel 39:21-29 describes this beautiful reuniting of God with his wayward Israel.

    Nathan Jones of Lamb and Lion Ministries is continuing this series on Gog-Magog with a discussion of the timing. I'm going to continue to post the links to this series in this thread.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - Search For Timing
    by Nathan Jones

    The million dollar question for you and me is, "Are we going to live through the events of Ezekiel 38-39?" Will we suffer from the fallout of a world turned upside down, or is this event not meant for the Church?

    Let us go to the Bible in search for the answers. Five general timing clues the Bible gives us when taken together will reveal a clearer picture of when this world-altering battle will occur.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - Before the Tribulation? by Nathan Jones
    We have deciphered the general timing clues given by Ezekiel and concluded that the Gog-Magog Battle has to be future.

    The first clue is the use of the terms "latter years" (Ezek. 38:8) and "last days" (Ezek. 38:16). The second clue is the historical record that shows no such battle in Israel's history has fit the description. The third is that Israel is a nation once more. The fourth is that the nations that comprise the invading coalition are finally united today by their hatred of the Jews. And, the fifth clue from Ezekiel 38:11 is that Israel has to be living unsuspecting and in peace.

    In an attempt to pinpoint the exact timeframe for the occurrence of Ezekiel's prophecy, the following arguments will weigh the pros and cons of different future scenarios, beginning with the time period before the 7-year Tribulation. The following two views lie heavily on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture viewpoint.

    I'll seek some ideas from what I believe is the best written book on the subject — Northern Storm Rising by Dr. Ron Rhodes.

    In an attempt to pinpoint the exact timeframe for the occurrence of Ezekiel's prophecy, we looked at two arguments that placed the Gog-Magog Battle before the 7-year Tribulation. Next, we'll look at the possibility of it occurring during the Tribulation.

    I'll glean some ideas from what I believe is the best written book on the subject — Northern Storm Rising by Dr. Ron Rhodes.

    The Gog-Magog Battle - During the Millennium? by Nathan Jones
    We'll continue in our attempts to identify when the Gog-Magog Battle will take place, next by looking at three views that place the Gog-Magog Battle in relation to Jesus Christ's 1,000 year reign on earth called the Millennium Kingdom. Each view will list pros and cons, gleaning some help from what I believe is the best written book on the subject — Northern Storm Rising by Dr. Ron Rhodes.
