“You will say, ‘I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars.’” Ezekiel 38:11 NIV

The False teachings of the Prophecy
Jack Van Impe states “Russia marches against Israel (modern day) and all the Arab hordes, and china, and the oriental, all march with probably Putin because he is already making friends with Iran, and Egypt and Syria.” 251

Hal Lindsey believes Modern day Israel will be attacked by Modern day Russia. Iran is going to lead a great confederacy of Muslim people who are North African, black Africans. These include Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritania and many more Muslim nations. 252

Televangelists are teaching the prophecy refers to current day Israel, that Gog and Magog will invade current day Israel.
The prophecy states  ‘I will (God will send Gog and Magog to) invade a land of unwalled villages … all of them living without walls and without gates and bars…’

46436491_xl(1)_resize.jpgHow could the above verse refer to modern day Israel? when it is one of the most powerful militaries in the world 253 254 They have a superior defence and do not live without gates and bars. They are one of the world’s largest arms exporter. 255

Hal Lindsey states “… that modern day Israel dwelling in the land … they are strangely secure and at rest, a false peace we’ll see... but they’re without bars and gates, without their defences up, why?” 252

Hal Lindsey then states “because other prophecies like Daniel tell us that they’re (Israel) going to sign a covenant with the anti-Christ that guarantees their security.” It is at that time their defences will be down and then they will be attacked. 252.
The prophecy Hal Lindsey is referring to is:
“And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause sacrifice and offering to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” Daniel 9:27 RSV

Dr. Al Garza, Biblical scholar states (regarding Daniel 9:27) that “Every major so called prophecy teacher interprets the “He” in the beginning of the verse as the antichrist, even though it doesn’t say antichrist in the entire passage. They even put in brackets “He (antichrist)” in their presentations. But if anyone looks at the Hebrew and Aramaic grammar of Daniel, they will find something totally different.” 256

“To say that the “he” in Daniel 9:27 is the antichrist is to also say that the Messiah is the antichrist as well because 5214203_xl_resize.jpgaccording to the Hebrew grammar the “he” is the Messiah.” Dr. Al Garza book then demonstrates that the prophecy has already passed and quotes Josephus, The Targumim of the Megillot, Aquila, Rabbi Judah (Main compiler of the Talmud), and many more who all state the prophecy has already come to pass. 256
 

The televangelists twist the Daniel prophecy to try and make the Ezekiel prophecy fit modern day Israel, and hide the fact that Gog and Magog are modern day Israel.
Palestine and the Palestinian people are the ones who were very primitive in defence as their land had always been invaded and ruled by others. The descendants of Gog and Magog did attack that land of unwalled villages, a peaceful and unsuspecting people, living without defence. This prophecy was fulfilled in 1948.
