Did Obama Just Set Off Gog and Magog?

Please remember that people of the Jewish religion also read the book of Ezekiel.  Of course they read it with a different world view.  They believe it will happen around the time that Messiah is set to arrive.  Christians, on the other hand, know that Messiah has already come and they await his return.

Also, while reading the linked article it becomes more easy to understand HOW the Jews will end up accepting the Antichrist as their Messiah at the beginning of the 70th Week of Daniel.

Of course our blessed hope as followers of Christ is that He already came for His bride and WE AREN'T ON EARTH ANYMORE!

That being said, check out this article from a Jewish source that wonders if the Ezekiel prophecy is close to becoming reality.

Redemption advocate Eli Soble connected the US abstention from the latest anti-Israel vote in the UN Security Council to the advent of the great war of Messianic days in a video that has gone viral since its release on Facebook on December 26.

In this video which has been viewed more than 26,000 times, Soble asserts that it’s “a sign of redemption, a sign that Moshiach is close” that the nations are trying to take Jerusalem and Israel away from the Jewish people.

“The great Jewish prophecy of Gog and Magog is…the last great barrier before we reach redemption, and it’s appearing, it’s materializing, right before our eyes,”Soble announced.

He mentioned a recent news article in Reuters about the upcoming Middle East peace conference scheduled for January 15 in France. Reuters stated that France will call together “some 70 countries” in Paris to discuss the situation in Israel. Soble explained that the Torah considers the phrase “70 nations” to symbolize all the nations of the world, even if the actual number exceeds 70.

Soble retold the Jewish teaching that Sennacherib was supposed to be Gog when he came against Jerusalem in the time of King Hezekiah. He called Sennacherib an avowed atheist and narcissist. Without actually pointing a finger directly, Soble made the point that President Obama’s recent move in the UN Security Council echoes the narcissistic flaw of Sennacherib.

The connection between Gog and Obama was made more directly in November 2015. Breaking Israel News published a viral news story about a 15 year-old Israeli boy named Natan who had a near-death experience. In a video interview, Natan, a previously secular student, returned from his experience quoting Biblical prophecy regarding the End of Days. In that video, Natan clearly named President Obama as Gog. 

Natan described his vision of Gog and Magog. “It’s going to be something that is called a very big war. And everybody – the whole world – will be involved in that war.. Everybody! All the goyim (nations), all the Arabs, everyone will come against the nation of Israel and will fight in that war.

“The person who will start the war will be somebody named Gog… I am certain of who it is. Obama. President Obama. He will be the one who starts that war.”

As Soble described it, “the nations will come up with a plan to take Eretz Yisrael (Israel) and Hashem (God) will thwart their plans and it will lead to the revelation of Moshiach (Messiah).”

Soble encouraged his viewers to understand that this UN vote, and the upcoming meeting in France, are part of the messianic process and not to be fooled into thinking they are purely  political maneuvers.

He ends on an upbeat note, by reminding people that “Moshiach is very close, the redemption is very close. We have to take heart and be joyous and improve ourselves as much as we can… and add in goodness and kindness in the context of Moshiach.”

What?!?!  He thinks Obama is Gog?!?

Now THAT is interesting!

Christians tend to look at the Ezekiel 38 prophecy and name Russia's leader as Gog, Russia, some old Soviet nations, Turkey, Iran and some North African Muslim nations that make up the Ezekiel coalition.

As we ponder this, let's remember that Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy and the Holy Spirit indwelling followers of Christ are going to have a better understanding of prophecy than the unbelievers.

Matthew 13
10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”

11 He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables:

“Though seeing, they do not see;
    though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:

“‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
    you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
15 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
    they hardly hear with their ears,
    and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.’
16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.
