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.
HEZEKIAH WAS a better king than any since David, and better than all those who followed. He repaired and restored the Temple, reinstituted the worship of Yahweh, and tore down the high places devoted to Baal and Astarte (not just in Judah, but in Israel, too).

THIS WEEK’S Old Testament study is another fascinating glimpse into the supernatural war taking place in the heavenlies, this time set against the backdrop of the establishment of Yahweh’s covenant with David and His holy mountain, Zion.
