'Is the battle of Gog and Magog close?' A Major Escalation by Daymond Duck
Several people have told me that they have been expecting the battle of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38-39) for a long time, but it hasn’t happened.
They have heard that it is shaping up again and again, but the war has never come.
It is not that they want war. It is that they thought that it would have happened by now and it hasn’t.
Anyway, things may have changed recently. At least, that is what some are saying.
A civil war has been going in Syria since March 2011.
It is unquestionably the deadliest conflict in the 21st century. According to some monitoring groups 465,000 people have been killed.
In September 2015, Russia decided to get militarily involved in Syria’s civil war.
Since Syria shares a border with Israel, many prophecy teachers thought this could be the beginning of greater effort that would lead to the battle of Gog and Magog.
When Iran and Turkey got involved it seemed like the Battle of Gog and Magog had to be close because these nations will join Russia in that great latter days war.
Israel’s leaders are well aware of Ezekiel’s prophecy. They have long believed it would soon happen. They have built weapons, launched satellites and drones, trained emergency workers and troops, and they have kept some of those troops near their border with Syria in preparation for that great event.
Israel’s leaders have also been in touch with Russia’s leaders to try to avoid an incident that would trigger that war and get a lot of people killed.
Israel’s leaders have made it known that they are not interested in trouble with Russia, but Israel won’t allow foreign troops to establish bases on their border with Syria, Israel will retaliate if rockets or missiles land in Israel, and Israel will attack shipments of weapons from Syria and Iran to the terrorist group called Hezbollah.
It seemed like that was enough and things were kind of drifting along until the middle of March 2017.
That is when Israel saw a lot of activity at a large Syrian base that was too close for comfort to Israel’s border with Syria.
Russia was moving helicopters and troops to the base. #GogandMagog #Ezekiel38
