Who is Gog?
According to Ezekiel 38-39, Gog is from the land of Magog, and he is the ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. From Genesis, we also know that Gog should be a descendent from Noah's son Japheth. When the land was divided among Noah's three sons after the Flood, Japheth was given the land in the north, and Gog is also from the north.
Son of man, let your face be turned against Gog, of the land of Magog, the ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal ... Ezekiel 38:2
The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. Genesis 10:2
Two Wars Initiated by Gog
It was prophesied in the Bible that Gog will be involved in two wars, one against Israel, and the other one against Jerusalem and the saints.
1. War Against Israel
It is believed that this war will happen before the Great Tribulation because it is prophesied that Israel will be living in peace with no perceivable danger at that time. There will be no more peace in Israel after the Tribulation starts; and when Jesus comes back, there will be no more war as the demonic force will be destroyed and bound.
In that day, when my people Israel are living without fear of danger, will you (Gog) not be moved against them? And you will come from your place in the inmost parts of the north, you and a great number of peoples with you, all of them on horseback, a great force and a strong army: And you will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land; and it will come about, in the last days ... Ezekiel 38:14-16
In this first war, Ezekiel prophesied that Gog and his armies will be destroyed by calamities and signs, making it very clear that they are destroyed by the wrath of God. Bodies from this war will be buried in a valley called Hamon-gog in Israel, and their weapons will be used as fuel in Israel which will burn for seven years.
And it will come about in that day, when Gog comes up against the land of Israel, says the Lord, that my wrath will come up ..... For in the fire of my wrath I have said, Truly, in that day there will be a great shaking in the land of Israel ..... and I will send down on him (Gog) and on his forces and on the peoples who are with him, an overflowing shower and great ice-drops, fire, and burning. And I will make my name great and make myself holy, and I will make myself clear to a number of nations; and they will be certain that I am the Lord. Ezekiel 38:18-23
And it will come about in those days, that I will give to Gog a last resting-place there in Israel, ..... and there Gog and all his people will be put to rest, and the place will be named, The valley of Hamon-gog. Ezekiel 39:11
However, this opposition from Gog did not end with their defeat. Gog's followers continue to gather for another war, and the second war was initiated after the Millennium.
2. War Against Jerusalem and the Saints
It is written that this war will happen after the Millennium. However, this event can hardly be called a "war" because without any fighting, Gog and Magog will be destroyed by fire coming down out of Heaven.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed 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 went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city, and fire came down out of heaven for their destruction. Revelations 20:7-9
Is Putin Gog of Magog?
It has recently been speculated among Christian groups that Putin is Gog of Magog as prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39. Main arguments being that Putin is from the north, the name Rosh sounds like Russia, and he has started a war!
However, these arguments do not sound too substantial, and we must say they are rather unconvincing in proposing that Putin is Gog.
Gog is supposed to have many alliances like Persia, Cush, Put, Gomer, Togarmah, etc. However, Putin seems quite isolated and in fact was increasing cut off from the rest of the world.
Gog is supposed to be related to Anti-Christ who will seek to unite all nations under a one world government. However, as Putin's own official channels declared, they are actually breaking up the alliances formed by U.S. and the Western World.
Putin's war zone is Ukraine, not Israel. In fact, Russia has never shown any intention to fight against Israel until now. As they have admitted themselves, great damage has been done to their military forces, and it seems quite unlikely that they will fight another war against Israel in the near future.
Is Obama Gog of Magog?
There is another speculation that Obama is Gog of Magog, based on a vision received by a 15 year old Jewish boy. Being a secular Jew who has never been exposed to the Bible, he clearly saw the war and death of Gog in Israel, resurrection of the two witnesses, and Jesus Christ standing on the Mount of Olives, splitting the mountain into two halves as prophesied in the Bible.
After seeing this vision, he was very certain that the Gog in the Bible was Obama. Of course we do not have the resources to verify his vision, and neither do we have any evidence to backup his claims. However, if Obama is actually running the Deep State as mentioned in many conspiracy theories, he certainly has much more resources to make alliances with many nations during and after his presidency to unite them under a one world government. In fact, deleted webpages had been found showing that Obama has led an effort to build a Ukraine based bio-lab handling dangerous pathogens before his presidency as Senator of Illinois. As we now know, these bio-labs seem to be closely related to the covid pandemic and the current wars between Ukraine and Russia.
We have enclosed a video on this vision below, and we will now leave our readers to check on these information and make their own judgements.
