Gog and Magog

History is designed to repeat itself and so does prophecy.  No matter when you lived, the books are designed with a message for you.

 Ecc 3:15  That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past. Ecc 1:9  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

 WHO IS GOG AND MAGOG?

 The story of Gog and Magog is found in Ezkiel 38 & 39. Some of Ezkiel 38 &39 have been fulfilled – as we shall see..  MOST OF THESE TWO CHAPTERS  WILL BE FULFILLED IN AT A FUTURE TIME.

 Eze_38:2  Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him

 They originally settled in Asia Minor but they were pushed out during the timeframe of Nebuchadnezzar.  History records where they went.

 Cultural Atlas of Russia and the Soviet Union “…Iranian nomadic people…[whose] federation of tribes eventually seems to have included a strong Slavonic element…” (p. 34) were settled north of the Black Sea. This confederation of peoples was drawn from Elamites and Medes, together with Meshech and Tubal. By this time they must have been speaking a common language, proto-Slavic, akin to Old Persian.

 Now quoting from the races of the Old Testament p.48,

He continues by saying that, after the days of Nebuchadnezzar, the Greeks found Meshech and Tubal “farther to the north than they had been in the age of the Assyrian monuments . . . they were forced to retreat northward towards the Black Sea, and it was in this region of Asia Minor that Xenophon and his Greek groups found their scanty remains” (RACES OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, p.48)

 LOCATED IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE WORLD

 Originally Meshech and Tubal were in Asia Minor but in 700 to 650 BC. They were pushed out by the Medo-Persian Empire. They were compelled to cross the Caucasus and take refuge in that immense steppe region in which they had their origin. The descendants of the Moschoi figure in history as Muscovites.  Gog is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.  They live in the land of Magog. It is located in the Northern Parts of the World.

 Many people today believe that Gog is in Turkey.  The Bible plainly tells us they are in the Northern parts of the world.  During the time of King David and Solomon, Meshech and Tubal were located in Turkey.

 Eze 38:15  And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

 Eze 39:2  And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

 The Bible tells us they are a harsh people.

 Wilhelm Gesenius wrote, in the 19th century, that Meshech became the Moschi, a very barbaric people. The peoples of Moschi were renowned as being a cruel race anciently: “woe is me that I sojourn in Meshech.”[3].

 Psa_120:5  Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! (son of Ishmael)

 They cause terror in the land of the living.

 Eze_32:26  There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the living.

 Tubal and Meshech were associated with Esau’s Descendants.

 Ezekiel 27:13 also mentions Meshech and Tubal as trading partners with Tyre (modern Lebanon).

 Tyre was one of the places that Esau descendants settled.

 Amo 1:9  Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:

 Exo 17:16  For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

 They were also associated with many other Gentile tribes.

 Eze 38:5  Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

Eze 38:6  Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

 They will be accompanied by Gomer,Torgamah, Persia and Libya. Torgamah will live in the Northern Quarters of the Earth.

Mesheh mixed with Ishmael.  Ishmael’s son Kedar lived in Mesech and the Bible calls them men of the east.

Psa_120:5  Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! (son of Ishmael)

 Ishmael was in the East. They are the merchants.

 Jer_49:28  Concerning Kedar,H6938 and concerning the kingdomsH4467 of Hazor,H2674 whichH834 NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of BabylonH894 shall smite,H5221 thusH3541 saithH559 the LORD;H3068 AriseH6965 ye, go upH5927 toH413 Kedar,H6938 and spoilH7703 (H853) the menH1121 of the east.H6924

 Eze_27:21  Arabia,H6152 and allH3605 the princesH5387 of Kedar,H6938 theyH1992 occupied withH5503 H3027 thee in lambs,H3733 and rams,H352 and goats:H6260 in these were they thy merchants.H5503

 This will be done on the latter days.  Latter days does not have to mean the end time.  Although can mean that.  It can simply mean a latter period. 

 Eze 38:8  After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

 They are also involved at the end times but that is not the same battle as Ezk 38:15.

 Ezkiel 38 and 39 was fulfilled two times with Attila the Hun and Ghanis Khan.  We are going to discuss the Hun invasion.  Now the Hun invasion was the real reason the Germanic Tribes started moving into the Roman Empire.

 WHO WERE THESE HUNS?

They were people who came out of central Russia around the Volga River.

 Eze 38:14  Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?

Eze 38:15  And thou(Attila and Ghanis Khan) shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

 

Eze 38:16  And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

 Eze 38:17  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?

Eze 38:18  And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.

 Scripture says Gog would not prevail.  They would be turned back.

 Eze 39:1  Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Eze 39:2  And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

  THESE PEOPLE ARE TURNED BACK.  THEY DO NOT SUCCEED!.

 That is exactly what happen to both Attila the Hun and Ghanis Klan.

The Huns rolled into Europe in about the 3rd Century. The Huns had defeats the Alans, and the Visigoths in Eastern Europe causing the Visigoths to seek refuge in the Roman Empire.  That was the main reason why the Germanic tribes had started moving into the Rome Empire.

 We know that by 410 the Visigoths sacked the Rome.  The Romans had left Western Europe and moved into the Eastern Roman Empire.  Western Europe was occupied by the Germanic Tribes.  Western Europe was divided into small city-states. No real nationalism or leader for Western Europe.

 Roman Empire had not completely fallen.  Both the Germanic tribes and Roman Empire stopped fighting each other and came together to fight the Attila.

 Battle of Chalon

 In 450 AD Western Europe was divided into three countries Gaul, Spain and Italy.  Gaul was occupied  by the Visigoths and Italy by the Vandals.  The Roman Empire had not completely fallen and last Roman Emperor was stilling ruling what was left of the Empire, Emperor Valentinian III.  The Roman General Ateaus was chosen to lead the battle against Attila. He was considered a barbarian; He had a Visigoth mother and an Italian father.  He had trained among Attila’s fighting forces.  The Visigoths and Vandals joined forces with Ateaus against Attila. 

 The leader of the Visigoths, the great Theodoric, was killed in this battle.  His death turned the tide of the battle. The Visigoths were so outraged about his death that they attacked Attila with fury fighting into the night.  Attila pulled back to safety.  In the morning Attila was able to access the casualties.  When he saw how many people lay die, he withdrew.  Attila died a year later of a nosebleed from over drinking.  Just as prophecy predicted, they would turn back.

 Eze 39:2  And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

 The Huns was also turned back by the Anglo Saxon Germans. The battle of Nedao stopped the Huns otherwise they would have taken Europe.  THEY WERE STOPPED FROM ENTERING WESTERN EUROPE WHERE THE ISRAELITES LIVED.  God would not  allow them into the land where the Israelites were!!!

 After the defeat the Huns moved back east and changed their names to the Bulgars.  Khazars pushed the Bulgars into Bulgaria.  Bulgaria is mainly made up of Huns today.

 Kharzars were a mixed people with Mongol, Byzantiine and Arab peoples lliving around the Russian Steppes.  They were merchants by trade and they captured many slaves from Eastern Europe.  That is why the people in Eastern Europe are called Slavs. Slavs means slave.  Beginning in the 8th century, the Kharzar royalty and notable segments of the aristocracy converted to Judaism.

 Between 965 and 969, the Kievan Rus ruler Sviatoslav I of Kiev whose family was from Sweden conquered the capital Atil and destroyed the Khazar state. He stopped the Kharzars slave trade.  Many moved into Russia and Poland. 

 GHANIS KLAN

 Ezkiel 38 and 39 is fulfilled for the second time by GHANIS KLAN.

Ghanis Klan lived in Mongol.  The people who settled that area were the tribe of Gomer, Tolgarmah.  He was known for cutting and cruel as well as a great military mind.  Some facts, he killed his step-brother over a fish at the age of 13.  He married at 16 and received a fur as a wedding gift.  He used the fur to negotiate a contract with a neighboring tribe.  When he returned, a warring tribe attacked his village and took many of the women including his wife. His first battle was to retrieve his wife.  

 By 1221 Ghavnis Klan and his descendants devastated Russia for 200 years. 1224-1480.  They called themselves the Mongols and nomads. When attacking Ben Jig, he used woman and children as shields. He was known for raping thousands of women during his battles.  By 1300 AD they had taken all of China, Tibet, and Mongolia up to the Black Sea.  He was stopped by the Vikings who were the descendants of Benjamin, A Israelite tribe.  Benjamin caused the fall of the Ghanis Klan army.

ORIGINS OF RUSSIANS

 Moscow (Moskva) was founded by King Mosokh son of Japheth (i.e. Meshech), and was named for him and his wife, Kva. In this legend, they are also said to have had a son, Ya, and daughter, Vuza, who gave their names to the nearby Yauza River.

Within 1654-1721, Russian Tsars adopted the word – their official title included the wording (literal translation): “The Sovereign of all Rus’: the Great, the Little, and the White.

Slavs, Tatars, Mongols, Kazakhs, Poles, Bashkir and others. Russians of Slavic descent comprised a clear majority at around 45 percent of the population.

 “Since 35 per cent of the population consists of aliens, and Russians are divided into Great Russians, Little Russians and White Russians, we cannot… conduct a policy which ignores the peculiarities of the other nationalities belonging to the Empire. The watchword of such an empire cannot be ‘Let us turn everyone into genuine Russians’.”  Sergei Witte, tsarist minister

 Clearly, the people of Russia are divided into three nationalities  — the Great Russians, the White Russians and the little Russians.

 Russians (Great Russians), Carpatho-Russians (Carpatho-Rusyns), Ukrainians (Malo Russians or Little Russians), and Belarusians (Belarussians or White Russians) are descendants of the Russichi, the people of Rus, that is Eastern Slavs who mixed with other peoples over centuries: in the south with Iranian and later with Germanic peoples, in the west with Baltic peoples, in the east with Finnish and Turkic peoples.

 LITTLE RUSSIANS

 Little Russia, about twice the size of France, embraces chiefly the agricultural district of the south. Kiev is its principal town. The inhabitants, sometimes called the “Black Russians”, are taller and darker than those in the northern areas. They include the Cossacks.

 Catholic Ency,:

 The Ruthenians, or Little Russians, claim that their language was the original Russian, and therefore that primitive Russian literature should rather be called Ruthenian.

 The Rutherians

 The term “Ruthenian” was well known in the eleventh century and its origin seems to be considerably older. It is said to have really originated in the southern part of Gaul in the time of Charlemagne.  They were the  Slavic people from Southern Russia, Galicia and Bukowina in Austria, and North-eastern Hungary.

 After the death of Charlemagne they had settled largely throughout the land. Indeed the word “Ruthenian” is considerably older than the word “Russian”, in describing Slavic nationality; for the term Russia (Rossia), indicating the political state and government, did not come into use until the fourteenth or fifteenth century. 

Little Russia then split and was separated into two groups – one under the Tsar of Russia and the other under Poland.  Galicia continued to be part of Poland.  Galicia, which was under Polish rule considerably longer, was considerably worse off, being the poorest and least educated part of Ukraine. That is how the people of eastern Europe became known as the Slavs.  It is short for slaves.     It was separated from Great Russia and was for nearly five centuries subject to Poland.  The Tsar controlled the Ukraine.

In the late 1700’s came the partitions of Poland and, rather suddenly, Galicia, after centuries of Polish domination, found itself in the realm of the Austro-Hungarian Habsburg Monarchy.

 In Russia, the Slavic people suffered terribly on the Tsars. The serfdom was not abolished until 1861 and even then the peasants were still dependent on the landlord. The illiteracy among them was close to 90%.  SLAVERY STOPPED IN AMERICA IN 1861.  THIS IS THE START OF THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA.  1861 WAS THE YEAR SLAVERY STOPPED IN EASTERN EUROPE  — THIS DATE HAS TO BE BY PROVIDENCE!!

 In September 1939, most of Galicia passed to Soviet Ukraine.

 WHITE RUSSIANS

 It has long been generally understood by many Russian academics that much of their population is descended from a branch of the Scythians.  A famous Russian poet, Alexander Blok, for example, noted such in one of his poems, The Scythians. Also, Russian historian Alekseyev, in his work, In Search Of Our Ancestors, writes that the Russians are a branch of the Scythians..

 

In 862 the Slavs, exhausted by uninterrupted inter-tribal wars, made the following proposal to the Rus (a name borrowed from the Finns to designate the Swedes:)

“Our country is rich and immense, but it is rent by disorder. Come and govern us and reign over us”.

Three Swedish Vikings responded and came to Russia. Rurik became governor of Novgorod, Sineus settled down in Beloozerg and Truvor in Izborsk. Two years later Sineus and Truvor both died and Rurik extended his rule over the whole country. Later two of his lieutenants went down to Kiev, nearly six hundred miles away, and conquered it. In 882 Oleg, Rurik’s successor, came to Kiev in his turn. Having established his own leadership over numerous towns and tribes Oleg strengthened considerably the new Russian State and became its master. The new capital, Kiev, little by little became one of the richest towns in Europe.Rurik’s successors became a ruling dynasty in Russia for more than 700 years.

After 1917 Russia would be the power center of Gog after the Russian Revolution. Nicholas II ruled Russia from St. Petersburg. But after the Russian Revolution that changed to Moscow.  Nicholas’ entire family were murdered by Communists.  The First meeting of the Communist Party in 1917, Rothschild directs Lenin to replace Kerensky.  Lenin, joined by Trotsky and 300 from New York deposed Kerensky.

 In Conclusion:

Some of the chapters 38 & 39 have been fulfilled and they point to Attila the Hun and Ghanis Khan.  But the remainder will be fulfilled at a future date.  However, we see the Gog was from the Tribe of Meshech and Tubal and there were located in Central and Northern Russia. Also these tribes are associated with the descendants of Ishmael and have ties to Tyre where Esau’s descendants lived.  The Tsars in Russia were from the tribes of the Vikings.  They were referred to as the White Russians.
