I was discussing the amount of paranoia instigated by the local news outlets and the Western internet sources regarding Iran with a friend of mine,
and somehow the conversation came around him meeting a very unique man, one of Middle Eastern origin, and someone who was highly regarded by one of
the governments there. Well this event took place 3 years ago and apparently, this man had the foresight to see a coalition of governments between
Turkey-Iran and Russia. So my friend was convinced that the US (the empire of the world) was aware of what was going on and did not like a power
struggle, so they're on the verge of preparing the public to hate, and fear Iran, so that their attack maybe justified.
However, neither my friend nor I, nor the man my friend talked about, were Christians. A cursory glance in the direction of Google has resulted in an
interesting find. Something most Christians would be aware of by now, but something I had to bring up here to find out exactly when and how this
Its Ezekiel 38 and how so many websites translate this verse into meaning that Russia-Turkey-Iran will ally and attack Israel.
The word of the LORD came to me: 2 “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of[a] Meshek and Tubal;
prophesy against him 3 and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. 4 I will turn you
around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small
shields, all of them brandishing their swords. 5 Persia, Cush[c] and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, 6 also Gomer with all its
troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.
Now my question is, is this something that exists in the mainstream teachings of the Bible? I mean, I'm assuming that prophesizing is done with a
grain of salt under the tutelage of proper Bible studies but I couldn't be sure.
And if its not something that exists in the mainstream teachings, where and when did it come from?
