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.
All the nations of the Magog coalition coming from the north were located in modern-day Turkey, as was the “uttermost parts of the north,” a reference to the mountain of Baal.
THE MYSTERY of the identities of Gog and his minions has been the subject of debate for more than 2,500 years. We tackle it in this week’s Bible study.
