Gog and Magog in the Book of Ezekiel are not the same Gog and Magog in the book of Revelation:
16 “You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.”
17 `Thus says the Lord GOD: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them? (Ezek. 38:16-17 NKJ)
The book of Revelation 20:7-10 refers to the Gog “spoken of in the prophets” Joel 3:2, 9-17 and Isaiah 26:20-21; 27:1 when Satan will be cast into the lake of fire. [He FLEES!):
Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the LORD comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain. In that day the LORD with His severe sword, great and strong, Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; And He will slay the reptile that is in the sea (Isa. 27:1 NKJ)
7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison
8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.
9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.
10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. (Rev. 20:7-10 NKJ)
Gog is the name of the Prince of Russia, he heads the Gog of Magog coalition mainly comprised of the nations Russia Iran Turkey. The list of nations is a merism connoting nations North South East and West of Israel that do not share a border with Israel. Border nations were at peace with Israel (Ezek. 38:1-13).
In Daniel 11:44 the attack by Gog and allies from the North and East infuriates the 666 Beast Adonikam Emperor of the 10 horn Version of the Grecian Roman Empire that rises up in the End Time 7 year “week” (Rev. 13:1-5).
When Chancellor Adonikam man of sin morphs into the Son of Perdition Assyrian declaring himself above God and everything called god (2 Thess. 2:3-4), breaking the covenant with Babylon the Great World Religions, the King of the South and allies rebel (Dan. 9:27; 11:40-43).
Those of Gog’s coalition (Libya Ethiopia) offer no resistance but were at his heels waiting to strike like snakes (Dan. 11:43).
At that time Israel was totally at peace with her neighbors she once fought (Ezek. 38:8, 11). President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” (or something like it) had brought true peace to Israel and her surrounding neighbors, and they are not part of Gog’s coalition.
The Assyrian “king of the North” Antichrist Beast inherited the role of Guarantor of Israel’s peace and so news of Gog’s attack infuriates him (Dan. 11:44; Ezek. 38:4; Rev. 16:12).
While marshaling forces near Armageddon (Dan. 11:45) God utterly destroys Gog and Magog:
18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord GOD, “that My fury will show in My face.
19 “For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken:`Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel,
20 `so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’
21 “I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord GOD. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother.
22 “And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 “Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.”‘
39:1 “And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say,`Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal;
2 “and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel.
3 “Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand.
4 “You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5 “You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken,” says the Lord GOD.
6 “And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 “So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them profane My holy name anymore. Then the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 “Surely it is coming, and it shall be done,” says the Lord GOD. “This is the day of which I have spoken.
(Ezek. 38:18-23; 39:1-8 NKJ)
The terrifying display of God’s Almighty Power shook the Beast’s followers to the core. The Strong Delusion of Scientific Atheism advanced by the Dragon Commander and his fallen angels (the Nephilim) (2 Thess. 2:9-12; 2:3-4) was clearly contradicted by the display of God’s Awesome Power.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”
16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon. (Rev. 16:13-16 NKJ)
The Battle at Armageddon
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
18 “that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. (Rev. 19:11-20:1 NKJ)
