In July 2019, PC World reporter Hayden Dingman wrote about: GOG Galaxy 2.0 hands-on: The only game launcher. Nerds are fascinated with Biblical prophecies but they treat them with mockery as if none of this is true, and all of this is fairy tale.
But Gog is actually a personification of the final antichrist groomed by the adversary to attack the chosen people of the Most High. In this commentary, we shall delve into the Word to unpack his agenda upon Israel in a position of leadership from all the powers of the nations. In Revelation, there is a verse that speaks of a neo-Nimrod figure in the last days called the eighth king. He is the same as the little horn in Daniel 7 that arises from the awe inspiring looking (appearance) 4th beast in his vision that comes out from the sea. The sea represents the nations of the world. In Revelation, it says all the kings of the world will hand over to “him” all their powers and authority. They will all be mesmerized by this one political figure. He is the beast major in Revelation 13.
“Take Me To Your Leader”
Why would the kings of the world do that? It is because the Word says that they are drunk. Their judgment is completely compromised. They are bewitched with the harlot that is dressed in scarlet and purple. Paul exhorts those who are in Christ, be not drunk with wine, but be filled with the Holy Spirit. It is clear that no believer may be among the kings in that camp. They are evil.
“Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.”
This passage pretty much single-handedly and royalty explains all of Ezekiel 38. Their leader is an ancient and revived figure that once lived, but died and then brought to life again. DNA cloning is within the armory of today’s STEM to manifest such an immoral deed. They are now capable of mutating genes, editing genes and hybridizing beasts and man specimens. Why else do you think Planned Parenthood is selling the human tissues for? That “he” will “look” better than a humanoid, he can look at anyone. Except that he has no soul. He is the final antichrist.
In 2003, the DNA remaines of Gilgamesh was stolen in the looting of the National Baghdad Museum during the bombing of Baghdad. No one has written a book about what happened to the DNA of Gilgamesh. Perhaps we will see the “product” before the biography will be published. The point is, the technology is on the earth right now. That stolen item happened 16 1/2 years ago.
8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit[b] and go to destruction. And the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come. 9 This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated; 10 they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he does come he must remain only a little while. 11 As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to destruction. 12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”
And Samsung is pushing out a “launcher” called GOG for its Galaxy launcher. Galaxy? Maybe you are reading my article on a Galaxy model. Of course, Galaxy is made of constellations of stars and stars are the Bible speak for angels.
Gog 2.0 may just be that message to say Nimrod comes alive. 2.0.
A reader who reads the Book of Ezekiel in context will come to realize that much sensation has been made out of a war called the Magog War. Incidentally the word “Tubal” is even left out. The flow of the Scroll is not like this. In Chapter 23, Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon (586 BC) and Zedekiah’s princes were killed off. The last king was blinded and was put in fetters taken to Babylonia where Ezekiel was prophesying from his visions of the Word of YH speaking to him. Chapters 25 through 32 record the judgment by the Word of YH upon all who cheered at the fall of Judah. The chief of which included satan in chapter 28. That individual was a murderer from the beginning, the Word says.
From chapters 33 to 39, these seven chapters speak of the future blessings (from the timeline based on 586 BC, the “twelveth year” mark in the Book of Ezekiel) of Israel in forgiveness and prosperity from YH’s restoration of her through her returning children to Himself in a new covenant (the New Covenant of Y’shua). Chapter 38 is part and parcel of this blessing in that the Messiah of Israel is looking out for His people in the last days. Gog will be exposed and defeated by the Word.
But modern day hype makes Ezekiel 38 a thing of speculation of international intrigue. Somehow it has gained a following and become a life of its own. The theme of the chapter focuses on the mighty works of the Messiah saving Israel out of it. That part is left out of the war conversations.
Pure Rumors Of War
Pure rumor. There is a conjectural rumor that God neatly packages the Jacob’s Trouble (Jeremiah 30:4-8) to begin after the popular (but not true) rapture (that does not involve Jesus, turning “invisible”) so that no Christians will need to suffer. Pay attention to verse 7. The Word of YH says you (Israel and Judah) will be saved out of it.
4 These are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah:
5 “Thus says the Lord:
We have heard a cry of panic,
of terror, and no peace.
6 Ask now, and see,
can a man bear a child?
Why then do I see every man
with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor?
Why has every face turned pale?
7 Alas! That day is so great
there is none like it;
it is a time of distress for Jacob;
yet he shall be saved out of it.
8 “And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and I will burst your bonds, and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him.
Whereas the Gospel part of the New Covenant says a believer and a follower of Christ are blessed (Matthew 5) when we suffer for the sake of the Gospel.
Unfortunately in places like Lakewood and the Word of Faith congregations, people want none of the glory out of suffering for the Lord. Money is preferred. Cash talks. Materials will be burned up in a ball of fire. Wealth can be stolen and clothes can be eaten by moths.
I will address the word “save” that is found in verse 7. Salvation in the Old Testament customarily meant the sparing of lives from destruction. But in the New Testament, salvation in this covenant goes beyond three score and ten. It is a different covenant that is not about procreation and land rights. The promises in the Old Testament manifest as spiritual fulfillment in the New Testament.
By saying that Israel and Judah will be saved during the Jacob’s Trouble, it means at the time for this to be fulfilled, and 9.5 out of 10 people will agree that it is an end times feature, God says a different form of salvation will come to the children of His chosen people. As an Israelite, I understand what this means. This is the Aliyah, the in gathering of the House of Israel upon the end of the fullness of the Gentiles. Genetic Israelites and Jews in that order will turn back to Adonai through the only Way to the Father — Jesus.
Therefore, there will be no Jacob’s Trouble without messianic Jews coming back to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob with the Jesus as Savior, the Kinsman Redeemer of Israel.
Isaiah 49:26 The protection of the Messiah over Israel and Judah,
I will feed your oppressors their flesh. They will be drunk with their blood as with sweet wine. Then all flesh will know that I, Adonai, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Speaking of the Word of YHVH in Isaiah 54:5, the Maker is the Son of the Creator,
For your Maker is your husband —Adonai-Tzva’ot is His Name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer. He will be called God of all the earth.
The Word of YHVH will be God of all the (old) earth during His coronation as the Millenniah King thus fulfilling the seventh holy feast of Leviticus 23, Sukkot. In Zechariah 14, the same figure, Adonai-Tzva’ot as in Isaiah 54, re-appears as King over the earth.
16 Then all the survivors from all the nations that attacked Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, Adonai-Tzva’ot, and to celebrate Sukkot. 17 Furthermore, if any of the nations on earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Adonai-Tzva’ot, they will have no rain. 18 If the Egyptians do not go up and celebrate, they will have no rain. Instead, there will be the plague that Adonai will inflict on the nations that do not go up to celebrate Sukkot. 19 This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate Sukkot. 20 In that day “Holy to Adonai” will be inscribed on the bells of the horses and the pots in House of Adonai will be like the sacred bowls in front of the altar. 21 In fact every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be Holy to Adonai-Tzva’ot, so that everyone who comes to sacrifice will take them, and cook in them. In that day there will no longer be a Canaanite[e] in the House of Adonai-Tzva’ot
Woe Are Us
I realize that there are those such as the example of Lakewood Church in Houston who think they live in the New Covenant, but in their heart, they want the promises of the Old Testament. Their leadership has introduced them to a “Jesus” that is not the same one in the Bible.
Clearly that cannot mean those outside of the States are not Christians. There are thousands who suffer for the sake of the faith and the Gospel. The news carries their persecution and martyrdom every month elsewhere away from the United States. There are 327 millions of Americans living coast to coast. The category of suffering that Americans are handed is not physical, it is spiritual. A spiritual drought has descended over the land. Real spiritual food is scarce. You almost will not real spiritual food to be dispensed from the pulpit anymore. They got big bills to pay. Any one week less of tithes and offerings, the CFO can tell you they will lay off.
But then again, a rumor is only “real” when someone falls into it. These people remain to be the ones that subscribe to the theory of pre-tribulation. As bad as things are in the world today, let us name some obvious examples: confusion, turmoils in thousands of deaths on a daily basis due to tissue farming, poverty and famine in many countries but America, cyper thefts and corporate thefts, presidential campaign thefts, alteration of the human DNA, child trafficking, child abuse, elderly abuse, homosexuality, pansexuality (sex with all sexes and transgenders), demon worship in churches, witches who pretend to be Christians unobstructed by leadership, the threat of 5G to causing tumors and so forth, a person’s blind spot may embrace all of the above as normal. It is not normal. It is the tribulation when your one month old child must be injected with 150 chemicals, and aluminum salts in a super vaccination that did not exist in the 1960s. As parents, you will be the one who is left standing with the bag of caring for an ADHD or autistic child. Read Dr. Tenpenny’s books that expose the pharmaceutical world of (vaccinations).
I will show you where in Scripture that says the birth pangs today creep into the Trumpets. Many people freak out at the Trumpets of the Apocalypse. Most do not have an answer to how to endure through their ravage. A believer shall do so by knowing deeper the Word of God and walk with Christ while being guided by the Holy Spirit. If you know about none of all that I just mentioned, seek God now. You are not in a covenant with God.
The Trumpets are consequences of human wickedness in terms of greed, strife, war, aggression, science, technology, theft, attempts to prolong a form of living that they call “life” and AI augmentation to take over the will of a person. And, oh, we must mention CERN. God did not make CERN. The abyss will be blown open in the dimensions due to atomic force by the particle colliders, some day.
Revelation 8 The First Four Trumpets (OJB)
7 And harishon sounded his shofar;
- harishon, the second, referring to the second angel among seven that held the seven trumpets, all ready to sound them in order.
- shofar, trumpet
and there came barad (hail) and eish (fire) having been mingled with dahm (blood) and it was thrown to ha’aretz (the earth),
- hail, fire and blood are symbols of judgment to those who do not believe God and believe in His Son and believe on the name of His Son . The earth is the target in the last days. and a third of ha’aretz was burned up, and a third of the etzim (trees) was burned up and all green grass was burned up.
- Enter the effects of the fire. Now many are comforted to know this is just an environmental disaster. But the truth is, it is the baptism of fire by the Lord Y’shua upon those who have heard the Good News, each to their personal choice on what to do with it. The winnowing fork is in His hands. He will separate the wheat from the chaff. The chaff will be bundled up for yet another fire, the fire of destruction, not the fire of refinement to make the specimen more in purity.
Reminder from Ezekiel 38 Gog And Magog & Tubal
Tubal? Yes, it is in there. Tubal in Hebrew means the earth, the world, confusion. Immediately Babel comes into mind. This passage means the nations of the world are all called up. The meaning of Magog is not clear but it is said to mean covering. That immediately calls to mind the cherub from Ezekiel 28, who used to cover for YH on the mountain of YH. Yet Gog is the chief prince (Rosh) of Magog (Covering) and Tubal ( Confusion due to the nations). Indeed, he sounds like the final antichirst to be revealed. He is alive on the earth today.
The Word of YH to Ezekiel –
19 For in my jealousy and in my blazing wrath I declare, On that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.
- YHVH Qanna, YAH is jealous for His people. His wrath only happens when a covenanted party goes rogue and chases after harlots.
20 The fish of the sea and the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep on the ground, and all the people who are on the face of the earth, shall quake at my presence.
And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground.
21 I will summon a sword against him [Gog] on all my mountains, declares the Lord God.
- Gog: the name of an Israelite, also leader of a northern nation. Original Word: גּוֹג.
Every man’s sword will be against his brother.
22 With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him [Gog], and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur.
23 So I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I AM the Lord.
Trees On Fire
In verse 22, God will rain on Gog and those who are in cohoots with God torrential rains, hailstones, fire and sulphur. In the First Trumpet, there are hailstones, fire and blood hurled to the earth. There is a difference in these two passages: sulphur and blood. When we compare these two passages the “trees” in the First Trumpet are given the proper interpretation. The trees are an idiomatic representation for people.
Recall the blind man whose eyes were opened twice by the Lord in the Gospel. The first time when his sight was opened, when the spit of Y’shua was still wet over his eyes, like a lens, he saw people moving as trees. The second time, he saw people as people.
Israel Is Fulfilling The Prophecy
Earlier in Ezekiel 38, the clue is dropped about the restoration of Yisrael. The land of Israel is the one that was restored from WW2 in 1945 (v.8), the people of Israel have been gathered from many nations (peoples) upon the mountains of Israel. Israel is only about the size of New Jersey. It has mountains in the north and a desert in the south. All of Jerusalem is a mountain. Jerusalem is on one mountain; across from it is the Mount of Olives, and there is a narrow valley between them, the Valley of Jehoshaphat. Jerusalem’s seven hills are Mount Scopus, Mount Olivet and the Mount of Corruption (all three are peaks in a mountain ridge that lies east of the Old City), Mount Ophel, the original Mount Zion, the New Mount Zion and the hill on which the Antonia Fortress was built. Up to 1948, that piece of land was a continual wasteland roamed about by the Palestinians. Now Israeli people are securely (under statehood) dwelling and pupulating in the state. It is once this is fulfilled that a Gog figure will point his spearhead toward Israel with threats of destruction. V.9 prophesies his scheme. The many people with Gog are the United Nations.
8 After many days you will be mustered. In the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land whose people were gathered from many peoples upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste. Its people were brought out from the peoples and now dwell securely, all of them. 9 You will advance, coming on like a storm. You will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your hordes, and many peoples with you.
Ezekiel 38 in fact is saying in the time closest to the end, there will be many rebels working in Gog’s team to cause trouble for Israel. Many factors today are indeed making life very difficult for Israel. Some of them call themselves even Christians, that hate the Jews for no reason. They along with the rest of the earth will be pummelled by spiritual fire to reveal who they are.
The First Trumpet is doing its job, as fire in the darkness, revealing people for who they really are.
Y’shua is the One with eyes like a flame of fire. In His sight, He is inspecting. He alone knows who is for Him and who scatters His work for His Father.
18 “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: ‘The words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze.
Nothing is escaping the gaze of the eyes of Y’shua.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father…So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31
