GOG             AND
  & the Non-Arab
 Invasion of Israel
Gog and Non-Arab Allies Attack Israel
Ezekiel 38:1-3

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
2 "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of
Magog, *the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy
against him, 3 and say, 'Thus says the Lord God: "Behold, I am
against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 4
I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you
out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly
clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of
them handling swords. 5 Persia (Iran), *Ethiopia, and *Libya
are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6 Gomer
and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north
and all its troops--many people are with you.
Gog and Non-Arab Allies Attack Israel
Ezekiel 38:14

"Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog,

'Thus says the Lord God:

"On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you
not know it? 15 Then you will come from your place out of
the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them
riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. 16
You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to
cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring
you against My land, so that the nations may know Me…
Gog, Magog and Non-Arab Allies Attack Israel
Ezekiel 38:18

 "And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog
comes against the land of Israel," says the Lord God, "that
My fury will show in My face. 19 For in My jealousy and in
the fire of My wrath I have spoken: 'Surely in that day there
shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel…
Gog and Non-Arab Allies Attack Israel
Ezekiel 38:12

And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and
bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on
the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great
hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus I will magnify
Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes
of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord."'
  Gog and Non-Arab Allies Attack Israel

•There are no pre-conditions to this event
•This attack could happen at any moment
•The Alliance of Russia and the Non-Arab Muslim States
      will come from the north to attack Israel
•Israel’s Arab neighbors refrain from this battle possibly
      because they have a peace treaty with Israel
•The Alliance is liquidated just before they step across
the border of Israel
•Israel seeks sends out a recovery team for 7 months
and it takes 7 months to burry the dead
•Israel burns the weapons (conventional, and possibly
nuclear?) for seven years.
•No weapon that is formed against Israel will prosper.

   The Future of the
Arab States in Prophecy

Ultimately, there will be peace between Israel and
the Arab states, but it will take one of three

(1) by means of occupation;
(2) by means of destruction; or
(3) by means of conversion.

It is necessary to deal with the various Arab
states individually to get a clearer picture.

    Psalm 83:2-5

    "For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: ….

    They have said, Come, and let us cut them off
    from being a nation; that the name of Israel
    may be no more in remembrance.

    For they have consulted together with one
    consent: they are confederate against thee..."
A. Lebanon

Peace between Israel and Lebanon will come by
means of occupation. In Ezekiel 47:13 - 48:29 we
are given the boundaries of the nation of Israel in the
Messianic Kingdom.

The tracing of the northern boundary shows that
Israel will encompass all of modern-day Lebanon.
B. Jordan (Edom, Moab, and Ammon)

It is Edom (southern Jordan) in particular that the
prophets were concerned about. Several passages
reveal that peace will come between Israel and
southern Jordan by means of total destruction.

Some of those passages are Ezekiel 35:6-9, Jeremiah
49:7-13 and 19-20, and Obadiah 5-9 and 17-21. The
fact that Israel will help bring about the final
destruction of Edom (and, thus, the total annihilation
of all descendants of Esau) is portrayed in Ezekiel
Moab (modern central Jordan)

Moab will also suffer destruction, but it will not
be total. A remnant of Moab will return according
to Jeremiah 48:47.
Ammon (present-day northern Jordan),

Ammon it will become a possession of Israel but
its destruction will not be total. That is depicted in
Jeremiah 49:1-6.
C. Egypt

Peace will come between Israel and Egypt initially by
means of destruction and later by means of
conversion, as comprehensively covered in Isaiah
19:1-22. Verses 1-10 reveal that because of her sins,
Egypt will be characterized by civil war, desolation,
and famine.

The prophet states in verses 11-15 that Egypt will
suffer because she has been led astray by her
leaders. Under the dictatorship of Farouk, Nassar,
and Sadat the nation went to war against Israel four
times, resulting in heavy human and economic
C. Egypt

Understandably, Egypt has developed a fear of
Israel as prophesied in verses 16-17. This has
come to pass only since 1948 and especially
since the Six Day War .

Prophetically, today is still the period described in
Isaiah 19:16-17. Eventually, there will be total
and lasting peace between Israel and Egypt,
which in turn will give way to Egypt’s conversion
in Isaiah 19:18-22.
D. Northern Iraq and Eastern Syria (Assyria)

Iraq and portions of modern Syria are two other
implacable Arab enemies of modern Israel. However,
peace will come between Israel and these two Arab
countries by means of conversion according to
Isaiah 19:23-25. Verse 23 describes an economic unit
that will encompass Egypt, Israel and Assyria. Assyria
will become a blessing in the earth and will receive a
blessing from God. The three former enemies will
now have a spiritual unity as well as an economic and
political one. God declares: Egypt [will be] my people,
... Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine
E. Saudi Arabia (Keder and Hazor)

Peace will come between Israel and Saudi Arabia
by means of destruction according to
Jeremiah 49:28-33.

The passage describes the total devastation of
Saudi Arabia by war until the inhabitants are
scattered and dispersed all over the world.

As for the land itself, Jeremiah 49:33 states:
And Hazor shall be a dwelling-place of jackals,
a desolation for ever: no man shall dwell there,
neither shall any son of man sojourn therein.
Saudi Arabia’s desolation will last for all of the
one thousand years of the Messianic Kingdom.
F. Persia or Iran (Elam)

Iran is a Persian state rather than Arab, but it
shares the same religion with the Moslem Arabs,
Islam. Peace will come between Israel and Iran
by means of destruction according to
Jeremiah 49:34-39.

However, the destruction of Iran will be partial,
and the dispersion will be temporary. Eventually
the inhabitants will return and resettle Iran. The
future of Iran is similar to that of Egypt, but the
length of time they will be in dispersion is not

There will be a Nation of Elam---Persia or Iran,
in the Kingdom.
G. Syria

4 Strikes - Then You're Out?

 Amos 1:3 "...For three transgressions of Damascus,
and for four, I will not turn away the punishment

      •Strike   1   -   The War of Independence
      •Strike   2   -   The 6 Day War
      •Strike   3   -   The Yom Kippur War
      •Strike   4   -   YOU’RE OUT
G. Syria

Isaiah 17:1 The burden against Damascus.
“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap.”

Jeremiah 49:24-25
"Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to
flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and
sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.
How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!"
H. Southern Iraq (Babylon)

Southern Iraq is destined to be a desolate spot
throughout the Messianic Kingdom
(Isaiah 13:20-22; Jeremiah 50:39-40).

Not only is this area to be a desolate waste throughout
the Kingdom, Revelation 19:3 says that it will also be
a place of continual burning and smoke through the

The animal inhabitants mentioned in Isaiah 13:20-22
and Jeremiah 51:39-40 cannot live in a place of
continual burning.

Therefore, they cannot be literal animals as we know
H. Southern Iraq (Babylon)

What they actually are is explained by
Revelation 18:1-2:
After these things I saw another angel coming down
out of heaven, having great authority; and the earth
was lightened with his glory. And he cried with a
mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the
great, and is become a habitation of demons, and a
hold of every unclean spirit, and a hold of every
unclean and hateful bird.

This picture of continual burning and smoke will be a
place of confinement for many demons during the
Kingdom Period. It is clear from Revelation 9 and other
passages that demons have animal-like features, and
this is what the animals of the Isaiah and Jeremiah
passages actually represent.
