“Gog and Magog War” that is the dubbed name given by eschatologists to the prophecy found in the book of Ezekiel 38-39. In this prophecy Magog (Russia) and their counterparts unite and rise against the nation of Israel. We have yet to see the fulfillment of this Biblical prophecy, however today we are witnessing the formation of this alliances.
“The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog [Russia], the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal [Former Soviet States]; prophesy against him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog [Russia’s Leader], chief prince of Meshek and Tubal.” Ezekiel 38:1-3
Russia is Magog and Gog is their leader. Meshech and Tubal are believed by many to be the former Soviet States, which includes Ukraine. It is clear according to these Scriptures that the Russian leader will rule over some of the former Soviet States, which is exactly what we witnessing in Ukraine. Furthermore in 2008, Russia invaded the country of Georgia attempting to take the South Ossetia from them. Could these aggressive acts by Russia clue us into Putin’s desire to rebuilt the Soviet Union and fulfill Biblical prophecy?
