Gog is Currently Invading Syria...Turkey in prophecy pt 10

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.(Ezekiel 38:1-7)

The international coalition, headed by Gog, and described in Ezekiel’s prophecy,(ch 38) , has invaded Syria, to attack western backed Kurdish forces, and reportedly to clear the Alleppo district of ISIS strongholds, and to clean out Kurdish forces in the district of Idlib.

The coalition consists of Russia, (Gog and Magog?), Turkey, (Meshec,Tubal, Gomer, and the House of Togarmeh), Persia, (Iran and Hezbullah), Ethiopia (Sudan and Somalia), and Libya,(Most of the “Free Syrian Army” is composed of Libyans).

Turkey Invades Syria

Turkey’s army and international coalition forces on Wednesday started an operation to drive Islamic State jihadists out of a key Syrian border town, a statement from the Turkish prime minister’s office said.

“The Turkish Armed Forces and the International Coalition Air Forces have launched a military operation aimed at clearing the district of Jarablus of the province of Aleppo from the terrorist organisation Daesh,” it added, using an Arabic acronym for IS group.

All of the above named coalition is now functioning in and around Syria, in an area not too far from Israel. Alleppo is 326 miles from Jerusalem. The Russian military, heavily involved in Syria for years in an advisory capacity has amassed it’s largest Air, and Sea deployment of forces since the end of the Cold War on the coast of the Meditteranean, according to Amir Tsafarti in his January 18, 2018 Update “Gog is Coming”

Persia,(Iran) has been in Syria for seven years, fighting the Sunni militias who are seeking to supplant the Bashir Assad government. The “Free Syrian Army” is almost entirely made up of militias and conscripts from Libya and even Sudan and Somalia (Biblical Ethiopia).

In the prophecy of Jeremiah, which predicts the end of Damascus, events are described which are currently occurring before our eyes.

Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet. Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail. How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy! Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord of hosts. And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad. (Jeremiah 49:23-27)

Hamath and Arpad are two towns in the North of Syria, currently known as Hamas, and Tel Rifaat, according to Craig C White of High Time To Awake ministries;

What is Jeremiah telling us? Obviously this prophecy is concerning Damascus, Syria. In the verse above, Jeremiah mentions two cities. Hamath and Arpad (or modern day Tell Rifaat) are both located in northwestern Syria near the Turkish border. Today Hamah is Syria’s fifth largest city.. Hamah is further south but still close to the Turkish border. Arpad is modern day Tell Rifaat located about 25 miles north of Aleppo and about 20 miles south of the Turkish border. These cities are located along the path of an invasion launched from Turkey headed towards Damascus. According to Jeremiah 49:23 the people of northwestern Syria will hear intelligence reports that the Turkish army is about to invade Syria. The army’s target is Damascus and they are coming through their cities! The people of northwestern Syria are terrified. Their hearts faint with fear…

The expression “I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus…” is an ancient way of saying, “I will raise up an army against Damascus”. We are currently seeing that army, in Damascus, sent to invade the very districts of Hamath and Arpad that Jeremiah the prophet predicted.

This means that Gog and his antiChrist coalition are already in Syria, and heading south…towards Israel! Jesus is coming back soon!

But in the seventies, Hal Lindsey declared that “Russia is a Gog”.

I thought Gog was Russia?

So, if Gog is Turkey, who is Magog?

I always wondered why so many of the Bible passages, like the one quoted, do not speak for themselves...more gobbledygook to file and forget about...

Magog—savage pagan country or tribes. Gog- ruler or leader of Magog.

Clear...would have been more impressed if the passage said, “ In 2018, when Turkey invades Syria, Christ will return.”

Gog-gledygook? :)

I’ll have to brush up on this since I just finished studying the kings of Israel and Judah. Next, what the prophets had to say about their invasions and conquest. History repeats itself because God does not change and nations keep committing the same abominations. Especially the abomination that causes desolation.

Sheesh, another person who rejects Scripture because God didn’t word it the way he thought God should have.

Thanks for posting this Pastor bill.

Jesus coming soon?

The sooner, the better.

I'm so old I remember when something or other the Soviets did proved they were Gog.

"The sooner, the better."

For some, perhaps. For others, not so much.
