Ezekiel’s prophecy of Gog and Magog - Gog and Magog

‘Gog and Magog’, enemies (a large number are) of God’s people who are supposed to come at the end of times and lead God’s people into destruction are first mentioned in the book of Ezekiel. 241 Ezekiel, who is an Old Testament prophet is also known as ‘Dhul-Kifl’ in Islam.
Televangelists are misinterpreting the prophecies stating Gog and Magog will soon come, but they are already here and have been here for centuries.

“Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him” Ezekiel 38:2 RSV
Meshech and Tubal is where present day Georgia is and some surrounding areas. Magog is upwards from that area where present day Russia is, stretching as far as into parts of Europe and as far as into Mongolia. 242

Historian W. Howitt states “Magog, Tubal, Mesech … became the ancestors of the great sclavonic or Sarmatian families. The name of Magog still existing in the appellations (geographic area) of Mogli, Monguls, Mongolians; those of Tubal and Mesech in Tobolski, Moschici; and Moscow.” 243

According to Ezekiel, Gog is from the land of Magog but is the ruler/prince of Meshech and Tubal (where modern day Georgia and some surrounding areas). Georgia, parts of Kazakhstan and parts of Russia later on in history became known as Khazaria. The inhabitants of Khazaria were known as the Khazars. 244 245
Historian J.B. Bury states the Khazars were a heathen people who converted to Judaism in the eight century for political motives. Judaism was a reputable religion with sacred books which both Christians and Muslims respected. Such a move elevated them above the heathen barbarians and secured them against the Caliph of Islam and Emperor of Christianity. 246

The majority of today’s Jews are not descendants of the twelve tribes of Israel (Jacob), they are merely converts. Over the centuries they have multiplied, they have spread out across the many nations and have interbred with most nations.
 

The Invasion of Gog and Magog


“and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal;“
“and I will turn you about, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords; Ezekiel 38:3-4 RSV
God is saying He is against them but He will bring out with all their great numbers, and full armour and artillery.

”After many days you will be mustered; in the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land where people were gathered from many nations upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste; its people were brought out from the nations and now dwell securely, all of them.Ezekiel 38:8 RSV
The land is Palestine and the original Israelites who lived in Palestine had been dispersed (living in exile) after several invasions (Assyrian, Babylonians etc.) They came back and lived safely, these Israelites (known as Palestinians) either remained Jewish, or had converted to Christianity or Islam. They were of that land Palestine and were still the seed of Abraham. After World War II the leaders of the world (who are most probably descendants of Gog and Magog but pose as Christians) mustered and sent the European Jews (descendants of the Khazars i.e. Gog and Magog) to Palestine. The main invasion started.
