self fulfilling prophecy if we choose to see the world this way
There is no Gog and Magog any two enemies that rise against the religion will be seen as Gog and Magog
These things were added to the books long ago to assure in later times the church, synagogue etc would never fall to enemies...
vague abstract names that could mean anything, with a purpose of protecting the faith from invaders and conquers, a tool to be used in a time of need,
placed at a time when no one understood one day a Nuclear war would be possible
Gog and Magog exist right now
Only if we choose labels over dialouge
The words Gog and Magog refer to actual biblical time geographic locations just like Jordan and Israel refer to actual biblical time geographic
The prophets did not understand nukes but they did describe exactly what a nuke is able to do. The prophets Isaiah and Zechariah talked about the end
Isaiah 17: Damascus, Syria "will no longer be a city
but will become a heap of ruins" in one day leaving the survivors with "disease and incurable pain." This sounds a lot like Damascus being
nuked, then radiation effecting the survivors.
Zechariah 14: Concerning Israel's attackers in this war it says "Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will
rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths." This is what happens when a nuclear blast hits a human.
This sounds a lot like some one from ancient times attempting to describe the effects of a nuclear weapon.
Also take into consideration the fact that Russia has been helping Iran with their nuclear projects all along. Their military ties are being
strengthened more and more. When the soviet union fell, a lot of people who studied Bible prophecy thought that the prophecy would never happen but
now we can see clearly that it is well on its way.
Religion has been used to control man but Christianity is not a religion. It is a relationship with Jesus Christ. I would not consider my
relationships in life as religions, would you?
