    THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG

    TODAY, AS YOU ARE READING THIS, MOST OF THE BIBLE'S MANY PROPHECIES HAVE ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED. THESE FORETOLD ALL OF THE VARIOUS DISPERSIONS AND EARLY REGATHERINGS OF ISRAEL BACK INTO THEIR PROMISED LAND, THE 333 DETAILS OF THE MESSIAH'S FIRST APPEARANCE AS THE LAMB OF GOD, THE DESTRUCTION OF THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE, THE MORE THAN 1,900-YEAR SCATTERING OF THE JEWS TO ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD, AND FINALLY THEIR REGATHERING IN THE 19TH AND 20TH CENTURY CLIMAXED BY THE NATION'S RESURRECTION AS MODERN ISRAEL IN 1948--THESE ARE ALL UNCONTESTABLE FACTS OF THE HISTORICAL RECORD.

    Personally, I don't believe that literal Israel or Israelites have much if anything to do with Biblical prophecy after the destruction of Jerusalem.


    All of the current and future promises and prophecies concerning Israel are for spiritual Israel. Christendom is making a mistake in looking to Israel and don't be surprised, Israel had many prophecies concerning Christ, yet they knew Him not at His appearing.

    I did a study on who constitutes Israel. I don't have time to look for it right now, but my conclusion was that God's literal Israel is not man's literal Israel. When Jesus said, "This day your house is left unto you desolate," He was speaking to Israel as a nation, not to individual Israelis. Today anyone can be an Israelite, not by birth, Paul says, " For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they children because they are seed of Abraham." So yes there is hope on an individual level, the same hope there exists for everyone. The prophecies remaining for the elect of God

    Mitchell

    are not for what man considers Israel, but for whom God considers Israel. "For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly,..., but he is a jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart;..., whose praise is not of men but from God.


    How will read the right direction, if we are looking at the wrong map?

    Btw, Leeroy, I was just wondering where you got the idea that if the Jews would have accepted Jesus, the rest of the world would not have had the chance to be saved? In my understanding if the Jews would have accepted Jesus, they would have gone out as ministers as a nation, to increase the chances of salvation. Exactly why they kept failing in the O.T. was because God wanted them as a witness of His salvation, but they continued in their backsliding. Today the Temple of God resides in one place, and it will never again be constrained to a building. It is in the heart of the faithful.

    Read: EZEKIEL 39:11,12,13 and see what is says about Israel.

    <a href="/users/6493/mitchell/">@Mitchell</a>, I understand where you are going in thought, yet as a Christian we are covered as extended family under Abraham's covenant, the Bible also says if you support Israel I will bless you. Again there is a verse that says God allowed the Jews to be blinded to Jesus the Messiah, yet he re established them as a Nation. If they would have excepted Jesus, the rest of the world would not have had the chance to be saved.


    I know that Loyalty is an attribute of God and he says,"He will never leave us or forsake us. Don't you think that God still loves and cares for His people the Jews?

    god said "i bless those who bless thee" refering to israel if the nation(usa) as a whole will not stand by her whose to stop us as individuals for praying for her as a nation, after all we would not have salvation if it wern't for the hebrews.

    Let me call a spade a spade. Israel is only significant because Christians make her significant. I'm not anti-Semitic. Unlike most of the West, I just don't have a bias for Israel, a bias based upon a false understanding of Biblical prophecy. I don't have anything against Israel either, but I see the extraordinary prejudice in her favor all based upon a misunderstanding of who or what constitutes Israel in the present and future.

    after reading the answers to the question on the war of Gog and Magog including Israel,(i see there is no difference to the people who answered and the Pharisee's of Jesus's time,) the fact is Canaan or israel as it is known is gods chosen land and the tribe of Judah his chosen people,that is to say they are not better than any other nation but god chose them to fulfil his prophecies, what is written in Genesis-Daniel-isaiah-Ezekiel-Psalms you would see the answers to your questions but as the prophecies in the Bible says like the Pharisee's they/you would be blinded to the truth as would the jews and the gentiles, the jews blinded by the truth of Jesus the Gentiles blinded by the truth written about the Jews in the old testament but in the End Times both there eyes will be open and all will see the truth. please trust me what i am saying,, im trying to save your life in the name of Jesus, WE ARE LIVING IN THE VERY LAST OF THE LAST DAYS this is not a joke, LOOK AROUND YOU, DO YOU SEE UTOPIA? no that is becuase man cannot achieve this, only God can and it is on its way, before you laugh or mock me,take a look at yourself and ask yourself this question? where are you going if Jesus came back tonight,seeing is believing that may not be enough,being humble wont save you,God has given us the gift of time to put our selves right with himself,if we dont us this time wisely we have no one to blame but ourselves,(time is a period of years,(grace) that is about to end and eternity starts for you who would listen

    ohhh, I LOVE reading about GOG and MAGOG, so beautiful yet so scary. I hope i'm alive when they come out. it's going to be awesome yet terrifying. :s

    I believe their will be wars and rumors of wars in the Middle East and in many other place before the time of tribulation. But I do not believe in the battle of Armageddon or Gog and Magog as wars between nations of men. The problem when you take that position is that every upheaval over there gives you confidence in your position, enables you or the US or Nato or the UN or the West to take a stand on who's side they are on, it also distracts from the real battle that is going on and this is important: Eph 6:11-13 "Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand."

    I don't have time to give a descent answer right now. I am familiar with this understanding, would like the opportunity to explain why I don't think it is a correct understanding.

    Headless Man

    Did you read the link at the top, he makes a good case for Israel.

    Headless Man

    I would like to hear it, I'm not sure this site is correct but he makes a good case.

    I don't think much of Israel.

    That's an unfortunate statement. What happened to "Love they neighbor"?
