Gog and Magog of the twentieth first century
The lord God says: I will destroy Gog and Magog in Jerusalem with all the nations that are by the “Seacoast” – “coastlands” – or the “Isles” near Jerusalem.
According to the king James bible the word "Isles" is wrong. Each bible says it differently. Other versions say "Seacoast" or "coastland", which are more logic than "Islands".
There are no Islands near Jerusalem. There is One Island near Lebanon, which is Cyprus. However, the lord Yahweh speaks about nations and not one nation. It means that the Lord speaks about the nations that are at the shore of the Mediterranean Sea or near by.
From the contemporary English version bible the Lord says: [I Will set fire to the land of Magog and to those nations along the seacoast that think they are so secure, and they will know that I am the LORD. Ezekiel 39:6] Ezekiel = (Ezechiel)
From the American stander bible the lord says: [And I will send fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the (coastlands) in safety; and they will know that I am the LORD. Ezekiel 39:6]
From the king James bible the lord says: [And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the (isles): and they shall know that I am the LORD. Ezekiel 39:6] Ezekiel = (Ezechiel)
Magog is the king of Meshech = (Mosoch) and Tubal, with company of Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, and Togarmah = (Thogorma) . [Note: Tubal = (Thubal) = (Kabul) is modern Afghanistan] [Note: Persians = (Persia) = (Iran)]
The king Magog is the king of Meshech = (Mosoch) is modern Moscow and Tubal. Meshech is in Turkey, according to the ancient geographic map of the Middle East, from the Society bible Arabic version.
Some maps indicate Tubal = (Thubal) = (Kabul) between Turkey and Armenia, but it could be the city of Tubal in Afghanistan.
The rise of the Ottoman Empire is a sign of the coming of Gog and Magog also. They all come from this region.
The crises in the Middle East and in Asia tell us that all these countries want to wipe Israel off the map.
[The bible's dictionary indicates that Median is between the Caspian Sea and Elam, bounded by Mount Zagros on the west and Parthia on the east. It was at one time a tributary province of the Assyrian Empire, but shook off the yoke in the reign of Assurbanipal (666-624 B.C.), and the Median king Cyaxares joined with the Babylonian king Nabopolassar in the overthrow of Nineveh. Cyrus, by his defeat of Astyages (550 B.C.), gained possession of Media, which he united with the Persian kingdom.]
The king is Gog with the help of the Persians = (Iran). Libya, and Ethiopia will share in this battle to destroy Jerusalem. The Northern border of Iran is between the Caspian Sea and the black Sea. According to God’s Word to the prophet Ezekiel = (Ezechiel) in the bible, those people will attack Jerusalem. However, God will destroy them by fires from Heaven. Revelation 20: 7 to 11
God created the first man, and his woman in that Garden also, Genesis 2:5 to 6. This garden is located near Euphrates River in Turkey and it is the land of Meshech = (Mosoch) also. The first Adam started the world from that land and the people of Meshech shall end it from that land also. The prophet Daniel prophesied about the King of the North that shall destroy Jerusalem and this world from the same land, Daniel 11:1 to 45.
Bible’s prophecy by prophet Ezekiel = (Ezechiel): [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 = (Mosoch) is modern Moscow and Tubal = (Thubal) = (Kabul), 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 your army, horses and horsemen. All of them clothed with all sorts of armors, 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. [Note: Persians = (Persia) = (Iran)] The house of Togarmah = (Thogorma) 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. After many days thou shall be visited: in the latter years thou shall come into the land that is brought back from sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste. But it is brought forth out of the nation, and shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shall ascend and come like a storm, thou shall be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.] Ezekiel 38:1 to 9 Ezekiel = (Ezechiel)
The bible mentions about the end of the king Magog and his people in the book of Revelation. It indicates the appearance of Gog just before the end of this world.
The word of the lord says: [And when the thousand years are expired Satan shall go out of his prison. And shall go out to deceive the nations, which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them, together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:7 to 15
