Gilbert House Fellowship #202: Ezekiel 38:16-39:16

It’s not Russia. It’s the whole world.

WE CONTINUE our study of the war of Gog and Magog. To reiterate, Gog will not be a Russian leader.

We explain why we should be looking at supernatural north, not a compass point. Ezekiel, like Isaiah, recognized that the great enemy of God would come from yarkete tsaphon, Mount Zaphon — the mountain on which the pagan neighbors of ancient Israel believed the palace of Baal was located.

We also discuss imagery that could apply to the pagan plague-god Resheph (better known as Apollo), the role of the Rephaim in the army of Gog, and the significance of God referring to Himself as the Holy One in Israel.

      Thank you! It’s a joy to sit down each week and go through His Word.

    2. I just re-listened to this week’s episode. You mention Dr. Tom Hawkins. He was my pastor in Robins, IA in the late 1960s and early 70s. He taught my boys SS class and was instrumental in leading me to the Lord! Wow, small world. He also led my parents to the Lord.

  2. Derek & Sharon,
    Excellent show!!
    I also have a question for you that I hope you might be able to answer. Revelation 6:2 mentions a bow, “toxon” 5115 in Strong’s. Why do we insist on translating that as a hunting bow or a rainbow when it seems to be intended to mean a simple fabric? Or does it mean something else?

      Hi, Laura,

      It means “bow.” Strong’s is a good tool, but it’s not perfect.
