The last Attack of Gog of Magog has begun
GOG OF MAGOG
“Son of man, set your face against Gog of the land of Ma′gog, the head chieftain of Me′shech and Tu′bal, and prophesy against him”
Who is Gog?
“Gog” is an unknown name. It is cryptic name, a “play on words” as a biblical message from God,
to the devil and his earthly military forces. Yes, the “cryptic or symbolic” expression of “Gog of the land of Magog”, in itself seems to be a simple message to Satan, that shows how God sees him as “serpent” and with his
human posterity, as “crushed” (Genesis 3:15)… If it is a “cryptic” message it must be “decrypted” in due time, it must be understood (Daniel 12:4; Matthew 13:34-36).
of the expression (Gog of Magog) shows clearly that it is a play on words, a pun based on a real kingdom which existed (Magog),
and a transformed name (as to respect the assonance) of a former name’s king with a similar pronunciation. For example, the name of Babel connected with the biblical meaning given for this name as “confusion”, is based on a play on words,
a pun with “balal” (to confuse).
"The etymology sense given to “Babel”, by the “Local citizens” was “Gate of God”, but as it is written in the Bible, its “biblical etymology”
has been transformed as “confusion”. How? Probably due to its assonance with the Hebrew word “balal” which means “to confuse; to confound" and “babel” as game on words (babel that would make to think to babal as “balal”
(pronounced babel as “confusion”)).
“The Babylonians probably called their city, Babel, because there are very old Babylonian transcriptions "Bâb - ili" meaning literally "gate of God". But the Bible
would change this name in another more appropriate prophetic name 'Confusion', as Babel would be the magnificent symbol of religious confusion, according to Revelation 18: 2,23. A French Language example, to keep the game of biblical words, that this "gate
of God" (“porte” French word of “gate”) was rather a "loss" (“perte” French word of “loss”).
This way to "Etymologize" them is very old, since the Babylonians, they were engaged at the beginning of the second millennium before our era. It is obvious that most of these Babylonian etymologies are regarded today as traditional,
because they rely more on the symbolic link and the assonance between the words on their linguistic link”. End of quotation (“Un historique du Nom Divin” – French edition L’Harmattan, pages 40-42).
could be the name of this mysterious human king “Gog” behind this cryptic expression? “Gog” and “Magog”, and the intermediate shape between these two expressions which is "agog" that makes think to the king “Agag”,
an Amalekite king… In Numbers 24:7 it is written: “Water keeps trickling from his two leather buckets, And his seed is sown by many waters. His king also will be greater than A′gag, And his kingdom will be exalted”.
It is interesting to know that in the manuscripts of MSyVg and SamLXX, instead of “Agag”, it is written as “Gog” that seems to support the idea according to which Gog is an assonance with Magog, would refer to “Agag"
as “Gog”… Also, “The name or title “Agag” applied to more than one king of the Amalekites”. And we know that the common purpose of Amalekites kings was the same as the “Gog of Magog”, in Ezekiel 38, the
extermination of the Israel of God, as People of God... Anyway, the term "Gog of Magog", is a qualifier as an expression of declaration of what Jehovah will do against his worst enemy: the destruction of Gog and his Kingdom, Magog (Ezekiel 39: 5)...
Nations of Japheth and Nations of Ham against the People of God…
“The word of Jehovah again came to me, saying: 2 “Son of man, set your face
against Gog of the land of Maʹgog, the head chieftain of Meʹshech and Tuʹbal, and prophesy against him. 3 Say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: “Here I am against you, O Gog, head chieftain of Meʹshech and Tuʹbal. 4 I
will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in splendor, a vast assembly with large shields and bucklers, all of them wielding swords; 5 Persia, E•thi•oʹpi•a,
and Put are with them, all of them with buckler and helmet; 6 Goʹmer and all its troops, the house of To•garʹmah from the remotest parts of the north, along with all its troops—many peoples are with you” (Ezekiel 38:1-6).
If we take attention of these names: Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Gomer and Togarmah were nations of Japheth's Territories (Also Tarsis (Ezekiel 38:13)) (Genesis 10:2,3). Ethiopia and Put were nations of Ham's Territories (Also Sheba, Dedân
(Ezekiel 38:13)) (Genesis 10:6-8). In the prophecy of Ezekiel these two groups of nations are enemies of the People of God. To understand the cryptic sense of these names, it is necessary to understand first that this prophecy, according its direct context
(of Ezekiel 37 and 38), is not describing the attack of Gog of Magog as the first attack against the People of God.
It is the description of the Last Assault of Gog of Magog; within mainly two past groups of assaults, against
the People of God. And the second point, the study of the two mains precedents assaults against the People of God will allow to understand the meaning of the attack of these two Empires of Japheth and Ham.
intention of “Gog of Magog”, it is written: “(…) In the final part of the years you will come to the land [of people] brought back from the sword, collected together out of many peoples, onto the mountains of Israel, that have proved to be a constantly devastated place; even [a land] that has been brought forth from the peoples, [where] they have dwelt in security, all of them” (Ezekiel 38:8).
In this prophecy, the People of Jehovah are described as “constantly devastated place”. For example, in Ezekiel 37:1-4, it is described the devastation of the People of Jehovah as a “valley plain full of bones”. That seems
to correspond with the prophecy of Daniel 8:10-14 and Daniel 12:7-12, when the “little horn” “trampled” the “holy place” until the 1260, 1290 and 1335 days, and in Revelation 11:7-10.
first “devastation” of the People of Jehovah occurred in the beginning of the 20th century, during the First World War. But in the book of Daniel and Revelation, it is written about a second “devastation” of the People of
Jehovah in Daniel 11:30b-38 and Revelation 12:17 (“to wage war with the remaining ones of her seed”), since the Second World War until our days.
Regarding the biblical expression of “constantly devastated
place”, to describe the constant attack of Satan against the Earthly People of God, since 1914, it is clear that “Gog of Magog” has been also attacking the People of God, since 1914, and will continue through this main third last assault
particularly described in this chapter 38 of the Book of Ezekiel. But this last third assault, contrary in both precedent assaults, Jehovah will react very quickly it will reach a very precise moment (that we’ll see later), without allowing what He has
been allowing against His People, since 1914 until the beginning of the 90s.
