If you are joining this Gog and Magog Bible adventure from the Antichrist and his Empire study and are on the Battle of Gog and Magog field trip, let us take a look in chapter 38 Ezekiel. We will first be focusing on the countries, kingdoms and groups which are mentioned as being a part of an evil alliance that goes up against Israel in the latter days.

Ezekiel 38:1-2

1 And the Word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4 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:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

When is the Battle of Gog and Magog Bible Event

What is Gog and Magog in the Bible

Now, when I first started reading of this prophetic coming event and in particular the places mentioned, I was asking myself, what is the story of Gog and Magog in the Bible about and when does it happen? I had no idea where most of these places were because the names in the Bible are what these places used to be called. So, we will now go to the history books (Or Computer or phone search) to find out what these places are called today. The answers vary on exact locations, but they are all agree on the same general area. The locations are all over the Middle East and north of Israel up into what used to be called the Soviet Union and even up to Russia.

Other major players such as Turkey seem to be a part of this evil group as well. Some interpret China as being involved too. Hmmmmmmm we best do some research to know the Gog and Magog meaning truth. When is the Battle of Gog and Magog going to occur and if the places mentioned in the book of Ezekiel are part of the Antichrist empire or another evil group who will come along at a latter time. I repeat this because the timing is the essential part of this trek for truth. Here we go;

  • Gog: The leader of these countries that attacks Israel. Many believe that this is the Armageddon battle with Antichrist and his cronies. It is said that a leader in the past named Antiochus Epiphanes fulfilled some of Ezekiel's prophecy, but it was not completed. Well, we know why, he is coming back as Antichrist to finish the job.
  • Magog: Scythian nations (North of Caspian and Black sea) Modern day Russia and/or the republics of the former Soviet Union. This area is now a member of the commonwealth of independent states. Those that broke off from the Soviet Union.
  • Mesheck: Modern day Russia and/or the area which is a member of the commonwealth of independent states. Those that broke off from the Soviet Union.
  • Tubal: Most believe that this is Modern day Turkey.
  • Persia: Is one of the 7 past evil empires and is known as Iran.
  • Ethiopia: Is still in same area and called Ethiopia today.
  • Libya: Is still in same area and is still called Libya today.
  • Gomer: Modern day Southern Russia.
  • Togarmah: Some say it is Modern day Southern Turkey. Others say it is the area that is now known as Armenia, another member of the commonwealth of independent states.

IF the battle of Gog and Magog is referring to the Antichrist battle, we may have just found our other 10, part clay, part broken horns shared with us in the book of Daniel which was explained in the Antichrist and his empire study.

In Daniel 7:24 it says that 10 kings shall arise "out of this kingdom" and 1 after them. Very interesting coincidence. In addition, in Revelation 17:12-13 it says that they are not real kings because they do not have a kingdom but receive power as kings with the beast (Antichrist) and that they have one mind, just as these do.

Let's return to the battle of Gog and Magog Bible epic enigma.

Ezekiel 38:7-11

7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the 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 nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

What is Gog and Magog in the Bible Concern

Remember as we sojourn along that we are seeking to determine is the timing of the battle of Gog and Magog in the Bible against Israel who will be experiencing a time of peace according to the Battle of Gog and Magog Bible verses. So, Israel is living in peace huh? Well, that certainly is not how it is now. But ... Which time of peace is being referred to? Is it referring to the coming False Peace or the Millennium? We MUST know the answer to know the battle of Gog and Magog timing. Let's get a lil more information from the book of Ezekiel's puzzling paradox concerning the battle of Gog and Magog;

Ezekiel 38:12-13

12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

Now, who do we have here? Three more entities enter stage right in our Gog and Magog meaning sinister cesspool. They are Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish. They seem to be asking this evil inspired group what their intentions are as they head to Israel and suggest that it is to plunder and harm, but it does not say if these three join the group or not. Still, who are they? We better find out real quick, just in case.

  • Sheba: Area around Yemen
  • Dedan: Area around Saudi Arabia
  • Tarshish: Area around Lebanon

These are some interesting names because these places are all entities who are on the world stage as of 2023 after the Gaza and Israel war began. Before that point, they would not have stood out so well. Let's get deeper into this simmering saga.

Ezekiel 38:14-23

14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
17 Thus saith the Lord God; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.
19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.

What is Gog and Magog in the Bible Puzzle

Wow ... Some of that sounds a lot like the Great tribulation time period with Antichrist and his group. BUT, Israel will not be at peace during the time leading up to the Armageddon war. So, as it was from the beginning, the question still remain ... Is this Battle of Gog and Magog Bible prophecy speaking of Armageddon or is this speaking of the battle that occurs after the Millennium (the 1000 years of peace) which is after the Antichrist war at Amageddon? Here is Scripture from events that occur at the time of, during and AFTER the Millennium. You are about to get the answer we seek.

Revelation 20:1-10

1 And I saw an Angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and Holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 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.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of Heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The Battle of Gog and Magog Bible Summary
What is Gog and Magog in the Bible Ending

Now that clearly says that Satan will gather Gog and Magog to go up against Israel AFTER the Millennium. AFTER the 1000 years of Satan being in the bottomless pit. This is AFTER Israel is at peace in their land for the same 1000 years. This is what the battle of Gog and Magog prophecy in Ezekiel says too. Israel will be at peace when attacked. Perhaps we need to take another field trip into the Post Millennium to see what happens next.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
