Gog is Turkey! Magog is it’s Leader!

Gog is Turkey! Magog is it’s Leader!

Today Turkey has a leader that fits the Magog profile.

by Craig C. White

Bible prophecy teachers say that Magog in Ezekiel 38 refers to Russia. But from my house I can’t see Russia! That view of Magog came about by transcribing “chief” (or the Hebrew “rosh”) to mean Russia. Transposing Hebrew words into English phonetic equivalents is not proper Bible pophecy interpretation technique. That technique is not used elsewhere to interpret Bible prophecy. Rosh means first or primary. Magog is a man who settled in the land of modern day Turkey.

Eze 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:

Verse 2 tells us that Magog is the “chief prince” (or most prominent governor) among his brothers, Meshech and Tubal. So Noah had a son named Japheth who had a son named Magog who settled Turkey. Gog is a shortened version of Magog. Gog is the land that Magog ruled over.

This isn’t the first passage where Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are found. Let’s look at Genesis 10:1-3.

Gen 10:1-3 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. 3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

Jeepers, all those weird names are listed in that short passage! Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are people. As a matter of fact they are relatives. Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are brothers. Togarmah is Gomer’s son. They are among the first families to resettle the world after the devastation of Noah’s flood. They all settled together in today’s Turkey. Isn’t Bible prophecy fun!

Today Turkey has a leader that fits the Magog profile. His name is Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. He became Prime Minister of Turkey in 2003. He is a devout Muslim and has an ingrained animosity toward Israel. He also has a volatile disposition. He has been over-zealous in his public hatred and provocation toward Israel. While most Middle Eastern despots are being besieged and exiled, Prime Minister Erdoğan is popular and gaining in popularity.

    I agree with you Ezekiel is referring to Turkey and not to Russia. Turkey is already considering itself a leader in the Islamic world, opening one embassy after another in Islamic African countries and picking up Islamic causes.
    I have a hunch that Turkey’s destruction – as described in Ezekiel – will actually come at the hands of Russia – their centuries-old enemy.

    1. Turkey may suffer a set back when they invade Israel (Ezekiel 38) soon after they invade Syria and destroy Damascus. Other than that they will be successful in their world conquest. I think that Turkey will finally suffer at the hands of Jesus Christ in the battle of Armageddon (Ezekiel 39).

    Many thanks for your reply!
    My personal opinion is that Turkey – and Islam – will collapse when they invade Israel.
    The Antichrist will not be a Muslim as he will oppose ALL religions (2Thessalonians 2) and it will be his armies that are destroyed by the Lord at Armageddon.
    Again, this is my personal opinion!

      I have heard the arguments about a Muslim antichrist and I am very skeptical about them.
      First and foremost, 2Thessalonians 2 says he will be opposed to all religions.
      Secondly, those who claim a revived Ottoman Empire is the 8th “head” are ignoring several kingdoms and empires that have had control over Israel (Byzantine, Arab, Mameluk, British).
      The ancient church fathers (google St Hippolytus) thought he would be a Jew, of the tribe of Dan, from Babylon. I think that will be the case, with “Babylon” being a symbolic Babylon i.e. either Rome or New York.

    Given what has happened in Turkey in the past 10 days makes this article even more relevant now. I am not sure that Erdogan is the antichrist, I think someone else will come after him. Please tell people about 1500 military people and their families being held hostages in Turkey at a nuclear base, it is not being reported in the media. Go to debkafile for more information about this. And pray for those hostages. Prophetic speculation is interesting but it should not occupy us so much that we do not evangelize or pray for those in peril. There are many good Turkish people held in prisons now, universities and clinics closed, doctors unemployed. Turkey has become completely Islamo-fascist. Brothers and Sisters, pray,pray,pray! And stay informed.

    1. Thank you Amiela. I am aware of the US troops and nukes that are being held at Inkirlic airbase in Turkey. I have shared that story on facebook. Please believe me when I say that I am not speculating when I tell you that Turkey President Erdogan is the Antichrist. That is an important message because it informs Israel and the world that a terrible time of trouble is coming. It also informs Christians that Jesus is coming for them soon. The resurrection and rapture are near.

    Hi Craig,
    yes you may well be right, can you explain how we know that Turkey is Magog especially as to Meshech and Tubal, can we see from the bible that these people actually settled in Turkey? If we could prove that from scripture then I think we have a air tight case here. If we cannot then it’s just conjecture, I believe you may well be right here.

    1. Hi Alan. It’s more than conjecture. We can tell from history that Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, Togarmah, etc were all provinces in Turkey. Look at your Bible map.

      Magog is the “chief prince” or primary governor among the provinces of Turkey. Turkish President Erdogan is the primary governor of Turkey. Erdogan is the end time invader of Isreal. Erdogan is the Antichrist.

      Erdogan admitted that Turkey entered Syria explicitly to remove Assad from power in Damascus. Erdogan has already called for every Muslim nation to conquer Jerusalem. Hezbollah from Iran and Al-Qaeda from Libya have already announced their intentions for a joint invasion into Galilee. Every nation that is listed in Ezekiel 38:5 is fighting today in the Golan Heights of Syria. Turkey will destroy Damascus and will then lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into northern Israel. The writing is on the wall. https://hightimetoawake.com/magog-made-easy/

    Antichrist will rule by PEACE and destroy many by peace, sign a 7 year peace agreement with Israel during the first half of the tribulation and then after the abomination of desolation he will turn ugly and talk with great pride and vile again Christ, Israel and Christians. So I’m thinking he will not talk vile until the second half.

    Also AntiChrist will be very religious and honors a God of forces (war). This perfectly describes Allah of islam. In Daniel.

    He will come out of the Grecian side of the Roman Empire, the Eastern side which includes parts of the Middle East and will be Turkey. Gog magog.

  1. I believe that Gog (Turkey – Erdogan) is the actually the breaking of the 1st Seal in Revelation – White Horseman. Both Gog and the White Horseman have a number of things in common. Bow and a crown, and they go out and conquer. Since Gog or Turkey is the prime minister, he also has a crown. But, in Gog, Ezekiel 39, his arrows are on the ground because God has knocked them out of his hand. That is because he destroys Gog and breaks the 6th seal. This allows the Dragon (Allah) to be thrown out of Heaven with his angels through the war with Micheal and then Satan or the Dragon resurrects Gog on earth and gives him his authority his seat and to rule for 42 months.
    If Gog is the 1st seal, then he will die, trying to take the Temple Mount, and this will break the 6th seal. The Elect will be chosen just before the 6th seal and this will be the start of the trumpets and 42 months prior to desolation.

    If this is the case we will see this in the next year or so. Since we are at the 70-year generation of Israel come to an end on May 14, 2018. The Parable of the Fig Tree will be fulfilled.

    Also, I believe the 4th horseman is the end of this cycle prior to the antichrist and the trumpets. Gog dies and death (pale horseman) is followed by Hades and Hell and Satan on the 6th Trumpet. Satan being thrown out of Heaven by Micheal allows the dragon to resurrect Gog (Erdogan – Turkey), who is buried in northern Israel in Hamon-Gog, or Allah which is Allah which is Antichrist.

    What is to come soon and is happening as we speak.

    Turkey, (Erdogan – Gog – 1st seal) will move down Syria quickly. They will attack a number of countries and subdue them (Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan and Libya). He will conquer them and forms his 10 nation coalition. God will then turn Gog around and force him against Israel His people. Gog will capture Israel and Jerusalem so that he can claim the seat of God – the Temple Mount. Gog will die and be buried in northern Israel. This will cause God to destroy Gog and all his armies and break the 6th seal, a world earthquake event including the destruction of all nations that go against Israel occurs. The 7 Trumpet phase starts to happen. Then Satan will raise the dead Gog again, at this time Satan is being thrown out of Heaven with the angels and raises the 2 beasts (Sea and Earth), they will be the Antichrist Erdogan and Pope Francis. A 7-year peace treaty occurs. The pope will move the Vatican to the middle east and convert the church. The UN will also move their armies over there also. Babylon in Iraq will be the hub of the world as Antichrist sits on God’s seat. After 3 1/2 year Antichrist will create abomination on God’s seat and mark mid-tribulation. But, God tells us shortens the 2nd half or none of his elect would survive. Jesus does not come until the 7 Trumpet so all Jews and Christians will have to ride this out. On the 7th trumpet rapture of all living and dead rise and wait for God’s wrath to be poured out on the planet in the 7 bowls. During this, America will isolate themselves off, since Israel will not be able to be saved and can not supply resources fast enough to help them. There will be a purge of the Jews and Christians in both our country and abroad. Until we reform and prepare for the battle of Armageddon which is when the 7th Trumpet blows prior to the bowls being poured out.

    If Erdogan of Turkey is Gog of the Bible (Ezekiel 38/39). He will secure the Tomb of Suleyman Shah (Ottoman Empire) in Northern Syria quickly. An interesting fact that on February 22nd of 2015, Turkish troops invaded Syria and moved the grave closer to the Turkish northern border. This is Turkish owned and it is actually in Syria just across the border. But, if it is, Turkey – Erdogan, he is going to revive the Ottoman Empire and proclaim himself to be The New Emperor and renew the Calipha against the Gentiles.

    At the time that Noah’s sons descended from Mt. Ararat, there was no country called Turkey. The land became Armenia, which was the first country in the world to adopt Christianity as a national religion in 301 AD. It was overtaken by the Ottoman Empire and its people dispersed in 1915.
    So does that mean that the former country of Armenia, now an independent country of Russia is going to attack Israel?

    1. No it does not. Noah’s sons dispersed from Mount Ararat.

    It’s really interesting to read what you think about my beloved country Türkiye and her honarable leader Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. What’s more interesting is that ‘we have some hadiths (words of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him) which has some similar information as you mentioned ‘7 year peace’. But actually what we believe and the reality is that ‘ Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) will come as a Islam believer and help muslims in the war against ‘Deccal’ that you say ‘Antichrist’. Should we have enough life, we may see the truth. So if you are really believers of God, pray what I say’ O Lord show and guide us to your real path’ As Muslims we pray it 40 times at least in a day.

    1. Pray your prayer in Jesus name. He will answer you.
