The Gog and Magog conflict in Ezekiel 38 and 39 is one of the most documented events in all of eschatology. It is an end-times event in which a coalition of nations led by an entity called “Gog” invades a peaceful Israel to take plunder but they are thoroughly defeated by Jehovah. Most commentators believe that this battle pits a Russian-led army against Israel, but this point of view focuses mostly on the physical and ignored the more important spiritual aspects. A careful examination of scripture (and logic) disputes the Russian angle.
When does this event take place and how is it positioned in relation to the events of Revelation? We discuss this topic on this week’s episode.
