Gog and Magog in the Koran Prophecies
Since we, as a nation, have become so politically and economically pushed onto the world stage in an entanglement with the culture of Islam, what they think of us, and how they see our prophetic future in the Koran, is worth considering. What the Old Testament Bible teaches, concerning our prophetic future with Gog and Magog, is vividly outlined above in our Prophecy Update Archives in Numbers 27 and 28. The Koran shows a different picture in the following direct quote:
The Prophets 21:92-97 – Your religion is but one religion, and I am your only Lord. Therefore serve only me. Men have divided themselves into schisms, but to Us they shall all return. He that does good works in the fullness of his faith, his endeavors shall not be lost: We record them all. It is ordained that no nation We have destroyed shall ever rise again. But when Gog and Magog are let loose and rush headlong down every hill; when the true promise nears its fulfillment; the unbelievers shall stare in amazement crying: ‘Woe to us! Of this we have been heedless. We have done wrong.’
What happens, according to the Jewish Old Testament, when “Gog and Magog are let loose and rush down every hill” is graphically covered in Prophecy Updates 29 to 36 in our Archives. I am persuaded that Gog and Magog are most likely to let loose and rush down every hill at some point in time between 2006 and 2008.
Ezekiel 38:1-6 – And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,  Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,  And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:  And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:  Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:  Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
Before they do let loose and run southward down the hills, eventually to come up on Israel, the land of unwalled villages, they will devise an evil plan to lull it into a false sense of security.
Ezekiel 38:8-11 – After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.  Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.  Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:  And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
Ezekiel 38:14-16 – Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?  And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:  And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
In Prophecy Update 113B, I discussed what effect the current war in Iraq would have on peace negotiations in Israel. In the Update I discussed the things being stated by Silvan Shalom, the new Israeli Foreign Minister, concerning President Bush’s peace plan. He has since made his first visit to Washington, and spent time with President Bush this week. He stated that Israel has adopted the President’s June 24th speech version of the creation of a new Palestinian state. However, he emphasized that Israel would not accept a compromise on security – the terrorist activity must cease before any peace settlement.
