What it says on the tin.

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.

Josh, Illusionist of Generosity,

By the way, the purpose of my post here is to show how Christians can so easily misinterpret the bible if they don't read and study it carefully. MOST people that talk about the End Times THINK the Gog/Magog war is actually right BEFORE the Tribulation, not at the END of the Millennial Reign. This is causing those who think we MIGHT be near the Tribulation right now, which we may or may not be, but it causes many to think that Russia right now is some horrible, evil country when it is not. It has issues, but is not horrible and evil right now. So thinking the Gog/Magog war MIGHT be around the corner, and thinking that Gog/Magog is Russia, causes many to hate Russia right now, but this hatred is wrongly placed. In Revelation the Gog and Magog during that war represents ALL the rebellious nations and people against the Lord, of ALL nationalities and regions that choose to fight against the Lord. So in Revelation Gog/Magog does NOT refer to Russia.

Nobody cares about your shit. You don't believe the Mayan prophecies or whatever, do you? Those reading only think you're a fanatic and an embarrassment to your religion

If I don't believe in the 2nd Coming of Christ, then I might as well not bother being a Christian at all.

That fact that some people are offended tells me I am doing something right, because many people resist God for a while before He gets ahold of them and they stop fighting and finally surrender.

Nikki, Guardian of Good,

Why do you care what my beliefs about the timing of the gog magog war are ?

Nikki, Guardian of Good,

So you think I am a fanatic because I care about more precise biblical interpretations that might cause more Christians to act less stupid if they cared as well?

Nikki, Guardian of Good,

A lot if Christians do care, so so what to your comments. Some cate, some don't, but if I see many Christians misreading the bible, why not point it out
