Scripture: Israel's enemies have no idea!

(Ezekiel 38:1-5 NLT) This is another message that came to me from the Lord: “Son of man, turn and face Gog of the land of Magog, the prince who rules over the nations of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. Give him this message from the Sovereign Lord: Gog, I am your enemy! I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws to lead you out with your whole army—your horses and charioteers in full armor and a great horde armed with shields and swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya will join you, too, with all their weapons. Gomer and all its armies will also join you, along with the armies of Beth-togarmah from the distant north, and many others...

(Ezekiel 39:1-3; 7-8 NLT) “Son of man, prophesy against Gog. Give him this message from the Sovereign Lord: I am your enemy, O Gog, ruler of the nations of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around and drive you toward the mountains of Israel, bringing you from the distant north. I will knock the bow from your left hand and the arrows from your right hand, and I will leave you helpless... “In this way, I will make known my holy name among my people of Israel. I will not let anyone bring shame on it. And the nations, too, will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. That day of judgment will come, says the Sovereign Lord. Everything will happen just as I have declared it.

Note...the countries mentioned above still exist just with more modern names than the names used in Biblical scripture. These ancient names were largely based on the original peoples who migrated to these regions. Biblical scholars suggest these countries include Russia, Iran, Turkey and several North African countries among others. Please keep these prophetic scriptures written over 3,000 years ago in mind as you follow today's news headlines.

Read the full context.

Powerful and you are so right that we need to keep the Word before us as we see the news headlines and the times unfolding in front of us.

I'm so thankful that there is no need to fear, only to believe in the LORD, share Him with others, and PRAY steadfastly!

Bless you!

The Bible is a spiritual book.
Seek the Spiritual meaning of these verses.
Gog and Ma-gog refer to satan and
the kingdom of satan. Nothing to do
with any particular physical location

Please visit

And pray fervently and without ceasing
for the Holy Spirit to lead you into truth.

We are quickly running out of time
“when time will be no more”
Please ! Please !

To Anonymous on (4/19/11) I disagree with your sentiment. Yes the Bible is a spiritual book but it is also a very literal book. ebiblefellowship is one of many adherents to the Harold Camping 5/21/11 (end of the world) believers who have predictably been shown to be incorrect in their belief system - as evidenced by my writing this response on 5/27/11. I agree that the people of the world is running out of time, however that is as much because tomorrow is not promised to anyone as evidenced by people dying everyday or the fact that the Lord could return at any time.

A God who sends people to Hell?
