Christians are becoming agitated because Russia is meeting with Turkey and Iran
By Craig C. White
Almost everybody thinks that Russia is a key player in the Ezekiel chapter 38 Gog and Magog invasion into Israel. Actually Russia is not referenced at all in Ezekiel 38. However, Turkey and Iran certainly are. Magog is the “chief prince” or primary governor among the provinces of Turkey (Meshech and Tubal).
Ezekiel 38:1-3 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are all sons of Japheth. You can find them listed in the genealogies in Genesis 10:1-3 and in 1Chronicles 1:5. Japheth was Noah’s son. Magog, Meshech, and Tubal were the first princes to rule over the provinces of Turkey after Noah’s flood. Gog is the province that Magog the prince ruled over or it could describe the entire nation of Turkey.
There is no need to look for Russia to start the battle of Gog and Magog. Turkish President Erdogan fulfills Ezekiel 38:1-3 all by himself.
