By Damilola Adesina Omosebi

211TH INTERDENOMINATIONAL WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY FOR CHURCH LEADERS

STILL ON THE MYSTERY OF THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG.

We have earlier studied in the previous week:

• The main scriptures about these two wars.

• The difficulty in understanding these two wars.

TOPIC OF THE DAY:

THE DIFFERENCES OF THE LEADERS OF THESE TWO WARS.

Under this study we will examine four points.

• The location of these two wars.

• The differences of the leaders of these wars.

• The beginning of these two wars.

• The purpose of these two wars.

THE LOCATION OF THESE TWO WARS.

Both the war of Gog and Magog of Ezekiel 38 and 39 and the war of Armageddon of Revelation 16 are going to be against the nation of Israel.

Ezekiel states categorically that, Gog of Magog would come against Israel after its (Israel’s) settlement in her land. Eze.38:8.

And though the book of Revelation does not say directly that the war of Armageddon would be against Israel, where it shows as the location of the (“Armageddon” – the plain of Megiddo – Rev. 16:16, is a location in Israel.

Armageddon is a Greek term, the Hebrew equivalent of which is “Har Megiddo” meaning “Valley of Megiddo”.

There is a town called “Megiddo” in Israel today, which is said to be overlooking the location of the war of Armageddon. Ezek.38:8, 14-18; Rev. 16:12-16.

Though some scholars (such as Dake disagree with this idea, the conclusion of most Bible scholars is that, since “the North” that Gog will come from, will be Russia. They also claim that this is what Hebrew word “ro’sh” in Eze. 38:2 translated “chief” in the KJV, but retained as “ro’sh” in many other Bible translations is referring to.

There are also scholars who take ” Meshech” as an ancient name of “Moscow”- the capital of Russia, and “Tubal” as the present day town of “Tobolsk” in Tyumen Oblast, Russia.

We read what some scholars say about “Armageddon ” to show that it is a location in Israel.

Join us next week Monday at Bible Pattern Church end of Adewale Adegun Avenue Karaole Estate Ifako Ijaiye Lagos Nigeria.

Time: 10:00 am to 1:30 pm.
