I do not know how Long AFTER --- it Takes Before a Final War Begins

But as “the things” in this sequence of events occurs you know it’s Nigh

The land of Russia won’t begin to attack Israel before Trumpet 7 Sounds

But Antichrist will attack Israel More than 3 & ½ Years Before Trumpet 7

All of This Is Illustrated on Archive Prophecy Update Diagram Number 321.

It will take an act of God to prepare the 10 horns to unite behind him before this Caliph becomes the “another” Beast, who comes AFTER the 10 as the Beast that unites them to attack Israel.

THIS IS THE ACT OF GOD THAT PREPARES THE 10

Revelation 17:12,13,17 – And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

THIS IS THE ANTICHRIST WHO ARISES AFTER THE 10

Daniel 7:24 – And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and ANOTHER shall rise AFTER them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

I believe the 10 Horns will be French Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iraq, and Iran.

I have never been confident of the identity of the three kings the beast will initially subdue, but my pick at this time would be Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.

I have taught the Antichrist and his followers would be of the Islamic faith since I began to write my first published book in 1974.

I’VE HAD THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS AND PARTICIPANTS ENVOLVED IN THEM CORRECT FOR 40 YEARS, BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE EXACT TIME THE ISLAMIC ANTICHRIST WILL LAUNCH HIS ATTACK, NOR CAN I TELL PRECISELY WHEN THE 7TH TRUMPET RAPTURE OCCURS. BUT I’M CERTAIN BOTH ARE DRAWING NIGH AND THAT THE RAPTURE WILL OCCUR ON THE SOUNDING OF TRUMPET 7.

PROPHECY UPDATE NUMBER 54

February 8, 2002

Daniel 7:23-25 – Thus he said, the fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. [24] And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. [25] And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. When a best selling book was written in the fifties about six emerging European Common Market nations, it began to cause many theologians to rapidly change their minds as to where the antichrist would eventually arise. Prior to that time most had believed he would arise out of the old Seleucid dynasty, which was formed by one of the generals who divided Alexander’s Grecian Empire into four sections. Many believed the Assyrian, in the fifth chapter of Micah, would be the antichrist, and that he would arise in, and come out of, modern day Syria.

Before the European Common Market theory arose, a majority believed antichrist would come out of the southern half of the old Roman Empire, rather than out of the European northern half. But the great popularity of the aforementioned book ascended to the highest levels of acceptability, and previous beliefs were dwarfed to obscurity. The book indicated that the six original members of the Common Market would soon be joined by four other nations to reach ten, and then be joined by the eleventh horn. He would be the antichrist of Daniel’s fourth beast in chapter seven. However, soon there were ten horns, then there were eleven, then more, then fifteen, and soon more will come to be added. But the astounding popularity of this book, and the thousands of preachers and other teachers who have taught it, have left a legacy, such that is difficult to convince the current generation they might not be correct in what they have taught, and are still teaching.

I have been concerned, since the book was first published, about the possibility it might cause many to be deceived when he does not arise in Europe, but in Syria. Quite frankly, I watch both Europe and Syria just like a hawk, and, if I do see him rising in Europe, I most assuredly will accept it. I am prepared for both. But many are so convinced he must come out of Europe, I doubt if anything would change their minds. In any case, in future updates I will show my reasons for believing he will come out of the Syria area.

I do not question that Europe will come down as part of the mass of many nations that join antichrist in Jerusalem for the final battle of Armageddon, but I am confident that the initial attack of the tribulation period will be by the antichrist leading Islamic nations against Israel.

LAND OF MAGOG (RUSSIA) FIGHTS FOR ISLAM AFTER TRUMPET 7

Ezekiel 39:6-8 – And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord. [7] So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. [8] Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

It will take an act of God to prepare the 10 Toes to unite behind Antichrist before he becomes the “another” Beast, who comes AFTER the 10 as the Beast that unites them to attack Israel.

THIS IS THE ACT OF GOD THAT HOLDS 10 TOES TOGETHER

Revelation 17:12,13,17 – And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

THIS IS THE ANTICHRIST WHO ARISES AFTER THE 10 TOES

Daniel 7:24 – And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and ANOTHER shall rise AFTER them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

HORNS OF DANIEL 7 & 10 TOES OF DANIEL 2 ARE THE SAME

Daniel 2:43 – And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they SHALL NOT cleave one to another, even as iron is NOT MIX with clay.

I believe the 10 Toes will be French Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iraq, and Iran.

I have never been confident of the identity of the three kings the beast will initially subdue, but my pick at this time would be Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.

I have taught the Antichrist and his followers would be of the Islamic faith since I began to write my first published book in 1974.

I’VE HAD THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS AND PARTICIPANTS ENVOLVED IN THEM CORRECT FOR 40 YEARS, BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE EXACT TIME THE ISLAMIC ANTICHRIST WILL LAUNCH HIS ATTACK, NOR CAN I TELL PRECISELY WHEN THE 7TH TRUMPET RAPTURE OCCURS. BUT I’M CERTAIN BOTH ARE DRAWING NIGH AND THAT THE RAPTURE WILL OCCUR ON THE SOUNDING OF TRUMPET 7.

The character of Ishmael, the son of Hagar and Abraham, has indeed been passed on to his Arab descendents. They are like “wild asses” that dwell alongside their half brothers across the Middle East, having the same ancestor for a father, but a different mother. The words which describe Ishmael-like characteristics are found in the words spoken to Hagar by the angel of the Lord in Genesis 16:12.

Genesis 16:12 – And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

The promise of a land grant in Genesis 15:18 was not given to Ishmael, but to Isaac.

Genesis 15:18 – In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

Genesis 17:20,21 – And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. [21] But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

The descendents of Ishmael fought among themselves and worshipped idols like the moon god until Muhammad united them into what is Islam today, but after the demise of the caliphate, formed by his immediate followers, it finally fell completely apart during the Ottoman Empire, and they have been at each others throats ever since. They have been iron and clay nations, a mingled (Arab) people, impossible to hold together long enough as a united body to defeat Israel. But that is changing by the spirit of Jihad, and soon ten Arab nations will unite. The Hebrew word translated as “mingle” in Daniel 2:43 is “Arab.”

Daniel 2:42-44 – And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. [43] And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, EVEN AS IRON IS NOT MIXED WITH CLAY. [44] And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

I agree with Jerome’s postulation. It will take an act of God to keep them together until the final battle of Armageddon, and they will turn on each other as the battle ends at Christ’s 2nd Advent.

Zechariah 14:12,13 – And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. [13] And it shall come to pass in that day, THAT A GREAT TUMULT FROM THE LORD SHALL BE AMONG THEM; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

Jerome postulates that since clay and iron do not bond together, this kingdom is intrinsically weak. Unity is impossible and the kingdom is vulnerable because it seeks to unite elements that do not coalesce.

The kingdom set up by the God of heaven will be the kingdom of his Son, Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

It will take an act of God to keep the iron and clay “wild asses” of Ishmael descent from war with each other long enough to fight united against Israel.

God will put it in the hearts of the ten Islamic leaders to unite under a single leader, the Antichrist, and the clay and iron Arab nations shall hold together long enough to fulfill the words of God’s prophecy.

Revelation 17:12,13,17 –And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

July 22, 2014

http://www.tribulationperiod.com/

Part 1 was put up on July 17, 2014
Part 2 was put up on July 19, 2014

Matthew 28:18 – And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Revelation 17:17 – For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Ezekiel 38:1,2 – “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.” Gog (high extension) appears for the first time in Ezekiel. He is the Antichrist of whom so much has been written. Please note that he is identified as the “chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” Many commentators, especially in the last 100 years, have not identified him as the Antichrist, but have identified him as the ruler or chief prince of the land of Magog, which I do not believe Scripture justifies. Before the 20th Century, many identified him as the Antichrist. In verse 2 Ezekiel is told to set his face against two separate things, a person and a place. The person is Gog (Antichrist), and the place is the land of the descendants of Magog where it existed in Ezekiel’s day. If we do not locate the territories of Magog, Meshech, and Tubal as they existed in Ezekiel’s day, then we can have no idea as to where the Antichrist will soon rear his head, or the area from which his attack will be launched. Why? Because more than 2500 years have slipped by since Ezekiel wrote his prophecies, and the bloodlines of all three men been distributed across the entire planet. In order to correctly identify the area from whence Antichrist will attack Israel, we must identify where the descendants of Meshech and Tubal were residing in 500 and 600 B.C. Why? Because the Antichrist is not the chief prince of Magog, he is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. He will come from the area where their descendants were settled in 500 and 600 B.C.

I will attempt to use two different sources to locate where the descendants of Meshech and Tubal were clustered at the time of Ezekiel’s writings. The first is found in the 27th chapter of Ezekiel, and the second is from the Assyrian monument stones of that period. Ezekiel 27:3 – “And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith the Lord God; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty.” Tyrus (Tyre) was a seaport on the southern coast of what we know today as Lebanon, which is directly north of Israel. Tyrus built its first great sea wall to protect its harbored ships more than 3000 years ago, and was a thriving seaport in Ezekiel’s day. Its ships carried merchandise from the countries of the east across all the Mediterranean, and even as far north as the shores of the English Channel. Zidon (Sidon) was also a sea port, and less than 20 miles separated the two cities. The wise men of Tyrus were the navigators of the ships, and the men of Zidon were the deck hands, as portrayed in Ezekiel 27:8 – “The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners: thy wise men, O Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.” Now, bearing all this in mind, let us look at Ezekiel 27:13 – “Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.” Meshech and Tubal were warlike tribes, who often took their captives (persons of men) and the vessels of brass they had captured, or hammered out themselves, and carried them to the NEAREST seaport for trading. The captives were, of course, loaded on the ships and sold as slaves in foreign ports of trade. Why the NEAREST seaport? Because, in Ezekiel’s day, travel was by foot, donkey, camel, and horse. People always carried their trading goods to the nearest port, particularly slaves. Therefore, I conclude that Meshech and Tubal must have roamed in the area we know today as Syria, Lebanon, northwestern Iraq, and southern Turkey. Meshech and Tubal are the Mushki and Tabali of the Assyrian stone monuments. In the time of Sargon and Sennacherib (700 B.C.) the territory of Tubal adjoined southern Cilicia, while that of Meshech filled the highlands to the east of Tubal. Considering the locations derived from the Bible and stone tablets, it appears that the Antichrist, as the chief prince of the area once occupied by Meshech and Tubal, is likely to arise, and eventually to attack Israel, from Syria or Lebanon. And, since Lebanon is virtually controlled by Syria, it makes Greater Syria the territory the land from which Gog will arise.

The Power of God will pull the Islamic Antichrist down from his Greater Syria Caliphate. The Antichrist is Gog who is the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal. God will put hooks in his jaws and drag him south into Israel as far south as the city of Beersheba. Israel will remain surrounded in the vast Negev Wilderness for some 3 and ½ years. The Antichrist will lead a fully equipped high tech military force. The weapons in Ezekiel 38 & 39 were high tech for that day.

Ezekiel 38:3,4 – And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: [4] 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:

I established, from the Scriptures and the Assyrian stone monuments, that the descendants of Meshech and Tubal, at the time Ezekiel wrote his prophecies, were primarily located in what we know as Syria and Lebanon. We also established that the prophecy is again a person, Gog (Antichrist), and against a land, the land of Magog. I am convinced that the Antichrist will attack Israel from Syria. Now, what about the “land of Magog?” Where were the Magogites located at the time of Ezekiel’s writings? Flavius Josephus, the noted Jewish historian makes the following statements concerning the Magogites in Antiquities of the Jews, Chapter VI, under the title, HOW EVERY NATION WAS DENOMINATED FROM THEIR FIRST INHABITANTS: “Japhet, the son of Noah, had seven sons.” “They called the nations by their own names.” “Magog founded those that from him were called Magogites, but who by the Greeks were called Scythians.” The Greek writers of the Classic Age said the Scythians occupied the area which today we identify as stretching from Moldova eastward across the Ukraine, southern Russia, and then into Kazakhstan, then southward into Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan – Roughly the area north of the Black Sea, between the Black and Caspian Seas, and the area northwest, north, and northeast of the Caspian Sea. I do not believe the nations in this area will join in the initial attack against Israel, but I am certain they will come down for the final battle of Gog’s war, which is the Battle of Armageddon. The Battle of Armageddon, found in Revelation 16:16, is the final battle in Gog’s war, which began 3 and ½ years earlier.

Verse 3 fails to include the “land of Magog,” and is a message directly pointed, and personally addressed, against the Antichrist Gog, who once again is identified as the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Popular writers in the last century brought a teaching into play that is simply not true. They said the word “chief” was “rosh” in the Hebrew language, which is true. But they said it meant “Russian,” which is not true. The Russian and Hebrew language have never overlapped in history to support such a claim. He is not a Russian prince. He is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, most likely having a Syrian father. The word “rosh,” in the KJV, is translated as “chief” 90 times, as “head” 349 times, as “top” 75 times, as “beginning” 14 times, as “company” 12 times, as “captain” 10 times, as “sum” 9 times, as “first” 6 times, as “principle” 5 times, as “chief man” 4 times, and as “ruler” on two occasions. At no time, in all of history, could it legitimately be identified as someone who is a Russian.

I’m convinced the chief prince of Meshech & Tubal will come from northwestern Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, or southern Turkey. He will be the leader of a multilateral Arab force that will carry out a surprise attack against Israel from the north. I believe this is spoken of in Revelation 17:12,13 – “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”

I have established a case to show that the Antichrist is likely to arise in Syria, and will launch his initial attack again Israel from that position. Although he will have the support of ten Arab nations, I believe the nations directly involved in the attack will be Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, Turkey, and Iran. Now, let us continue from Ezekiel 38:4 – “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.” This portrays a man overtaking a fleeing beast, putting hooks into its jaws, then turning and pulling it along a path the man desires to lead it. The Antichrist will have no choice in this matter. God creates political and economic circumstances whereby he must come down at exactly the appointed time. I protest the efforts of some commentators to take the weapons of Ezekiel’s day, and attempt to carry them into our day and time. Suppose God had inspired Ezekiel to write 1020 tanks, 923 MIG JETS, 3283 katyusha launchers, 12000 katyusha rockets, 723 SAM shoulder held launchers with 4673 SAM’s, and 2073 flamethrowers. The Ezekiel’s day readers would have laughed him to scorn. I am persuaded that God meant for our final generation to picture a great, mighty, army, fully armed to the teeth with all the known modern weapons of warfare.

Verse 5 names three of the peoples from which the Antichrist will draw his initial attacking horde: “Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:” Persia was basically the peoples east of the Euphrates, which today would be Iran and Iraq. Libya corresponds with the location of modern day Libya. And Ethiopia in Ezekiel’s day was made up mostly of what we call Sudan today. Once again the point is made that they will be fully armed for all out war.

Verse 6 continues to name the peoples of Ezekiel’s day from which he will draw his support, and by knowing where they lived at that time, we can at least attempt to identify those nations that occupy these areas today: “Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.” Quite frankly, I have searched, and researched, the writings of many historians, both ancient and modern, and, in the end, knowing that honesty is the best policy, I can only say that there is a wide diversity of opinion. Up to this point, as regards the locations of Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Libya, and Ethiopia, I have presented a case from both the Scriptures and historical records, which I believe is substantial. But in the case of Gomer, and the house of Togarmah, as to where they were settled in Ezekiel’s day, I can only give a rough approximation.

The house of Togarmah and the descendants of Gomer were sandwiched between the Magogites (Scythians) to the north, and Meshach, Tubal, and Persia to the south. They stretched from west to east across modern day Turkey into the area south of the Caucasus Mountains, and through extreme northern Iraq and Iran.
