Fred G. Zaspel is the man!
Gog is Turkey. Magog is its ruler!!!
By Craig C. White
I am certain that Gog and Magog in Ezekiel chapter 38 refer to the nation of Turkey. But for the longest time I have been unable to find a scholarly examination of the identities of Gog, Magog, Meshech, and Tubal. That is until I discovered the website called Fred G. Zaspel’s Biblical Studies. Way back in 1985 Fred methodically and soberly unfolded the true identities of each of Magog’s brothers. Even before the nation of Turkey was outwardly hostile towards the nation of Israel Fred was able to conclude that Turkey would lead an invasion into Israel. Fred G. Zaspel is to be commended.
Please find a link below to Fred G. Zaspel’s scholarly paper titled The Nations of Ezekiel 38-39 Who Will Participate in the Battle? I don’t agree with Fred’s conclusion about the timing of the Ezekiel 38 Gog and Magog war but this is the best study about of the identities of the nations listed in Ezekiel 38 that I have ever read.
Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Most folks see Russia as the leader of the Ezekiel chapter 38 war but they are very very wrong! Turkey will lead Iran, Sudan, and Libya into Israel. This is going to happen very very soon. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist and has vowed to capture Jerusalem for Islam. Plus every nation that is listed in Ezekiel 38 is now fighting in Syria!
