I do NOT believe we are even CLOSE to being to the Gog Magog war. I believe it is far off in the future. Even IF we are NEAR the return of Christ, which we can never be 100% sure but certainly is POSSIBLE soon with everything going on in the world. Even SO, I do not believe the Gog Magog war in Revelation has ANYTHING to do with events to come soon. ZERO!!! People who THINK so are misreading the bible.
I do find it very difficult to believe that CURRENT Russia would invade Israel. Under Putin the relations between Russia and Israel are warmer than ever. Putin has desired to make friends with Israel, and succeeded at it to a great degree. So IF the return of Christ is close, then the Gog Magog war must take place some time AFTER the return of Christ. IN FACT I have ABSOLUTE proof that the Gog Magog war will happen more than a thousand years from now. I am so tired of bible prophesy teachers act like it is coming soon, when in fact it is not. They are just wrong and sloppy with their biblical interpretations. In FACT the Gog Magog war happens at the END of the Millennial Reign of Christ, NOT BEFORE His Second Coming, and here it is is in chapter and verse from Revelation:
Revelation 20:7-10: 7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
THERE IT IS people, so let the bible prophesy teachers STOP saying that Gog Magog is almost around the corner. They have to twist things and say that Putin secretly hates Israel to try to force their theories to fit, unless the Second Coming is a ways off and Russia has a new president later, but even so, that passage from Revelation PROVES to me that the Gog Magog war is AFTER the 1000 years, so it takes place 1000 years AFTER the Second Coming. The Final Judgement also takes place at the end of the 1000 years or shortly after it.
