    Gog Spirit Surfaces

    “Prophetic progression,” as Todd Strandberg terms it, continues at a pace that is astonishing. Prophecy might not be being “fulfilled” as most seminary-trained students of eschatology would have it. None who understand Bible prophecy from the premillennial, pretribulational view, however, deny that things foretold by Jesus and the prophets are being set up on the end-times stage for what looks to be not-too-distant fulfillment.

    Even the most reserved among the pretrib seminary scholars sometimes admit that Israel being back in the promised land and at the center of worldwide controversy might just possibly be prophecy in the process of being fulfilled. Only slightly less profound than Israel’s being at stage center are developments afoot with regard to the area of ancient Persia, now called Iran. Hard on the prophetic coattail of those developments are the tremendous changes that have taken place in Russia and the coming to power of a “really spooky dude,” as I’ve heard him called in one form or the other over recent months and years. I refer, of course, to Vladimir Putin–the just-elected–or would that be reelected—president of Russia.

    Putin, as prime minister, recently made the following statement about Israel’s feared military action against Iran’s nuclear development facilities. "Without a doubt, Russia is concerned about the growing threat of a military strike on this country. If this happens the fallout would be truly catastrophic."

    The statement actually seems tempered by diplomatic buffering, considering some of the more bellicose rhetoric coming from the Russian strongman in his ongoing career engineering over the years as he has grabbed for absolute control. Putin’s voracious hunger for power on the world stage is seen in his overshadowing then- President Dmitry Medvedev's presence as Russian leader. Just days before winning the Sunday, March 4, election, Putin set future Russian policy in hardened rhetoric, making it clear who was and is boss.

    He used a bit of cold war-type bluster–but with nuance that veiled the threat--in flexing his pre-election muscles, as illustrated in this excerpt of his words from a week ago:

    In Monday's article, Putin again criticized the U.S.-led plans for a NATO missile defense system in Europe, saying it's aimed against Russian nuclear forces. "The Americans are obsessed with the idea of ensuring absolute invulnerability for themselves, which is utopian and unfeasible from both technological and geopolitical points of view," he said. "An absolute invulnerability for one means an absolute vulnerability for all the others. It's impossible to accept such a prospect." (Vladimir Isachenkov, "Putin Warns West over Syria, Iran, Moscow," Associated Press, 2/28/12. Thanks to Jonathan Stettin for news items.)

    Putin has come down hard on American diplomatic involvement in backing the Arab Spring agenda, using invective against U.S. State Department moves to try to raise his standing with the Russian electorate. He and his campaign apparatus have been particularly angry sounding about any threats of the Western alliance’s threat to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power.

    Russia has strategically placed missile-carrying ships in waters near Syrian territory, backing with military threat Putin’s tough talk about securing the Assad regime. When surveying the overall actions and interactions undertaken by this unusual man who has just assumed the Russian presidency for the second time, one who studies Bible prophecy from a futurist perspective must raise an eyebrow of realization–or at least of suspicion. Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39, of course, come to the forefront of supposition and postulation. Vladimir Putin’s future role in Mideast and world politics must by the very weight and volume of its probabilities be a matter of extreme fascination, not mere curiosity.

    The great prophetic book of Revelation presents a hellish angel–a spirit—that will, during the Tribulation, ascend from the bottomless pit. His name is Abaddon, as given in Hebrew, and Apollyon in the Greek language. Daniel the prophet mentioned a powerful angel called “the Prince of Persia” who caused all sorts of troubles to be inflicted upon Daniel’s people, the Israelites who were in Babylonian captivity. Ezekiel foretold an evil spirit of the ancient region that is present-day Russia that will at a time near Christ’s return inhabit a leader who will lead a coalition of armies against God’s chosen nation. That evil one is called “Gog.”

    With so many signals on the prophetic horizon indicating the Church Age is in the process of being brought to a wind-up, it isn’t unreasonable to surmise that the evil being held back by the hand of God might be very near the time of release. Certainly the one called Gog must not be too far below the surface in these troubling, although exciting, days.

    I have been a prophecy student for over 30 years. I am 99.9 percent sure that Putin is Gog, the chief prince of Meshik and Tubal. The evil I see in this man's eyes give me chills. The only other eyes I have ever seen like his, belonged to Hitler. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes. Buckle your ejection seat seat belts.

        I've had him pegged (in my own mind) as Gog for a few years.

          Mmmm...careful folks...Putin is a man that is leading a country. Albeit, it seems like Putin is backing Iran, however Gog is the Beast, or the A/C, who comes against Israel (Ezekiel 38:17). We need to be careful who we assign to perdition, IMO. Only God knows who Gog is.

            Not trying to argue with you, but where does it say that gog and the anti-christ are the same? The anti-christ is possessed by the satan. I've never seen gog called satan, anywhere in the bible. I may have missed it, but i've never seen it. Gog is one of satan's generals. As God has Michael assigned to Israel, the enemy has gog assigned to Meshik and Tubal. Gog's invasion fails, the anti-christ seems to suceed in his wars until the final Battle of Armageddon. Rev 13:4 asks who can make war with him, where as gog is defeated in Ezekiel's war.

            Now i agree that we should be careful who we assign to perdition. But this man is evil. I've suspected him as gog since he first became president of Russia. Though i don't know that he is. We do know that gog will lead the invasion in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. When President Bush said that he looked into the man's eyes, and saw a friend, i . I see the cold lifeless eyes, that remind me of a shark when it feeds. And yes he does have the same look in his eyes as Hitler did, IMHO.

            That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
            And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

              Nowhere does it say that Gog is the AC. Gog and his armies will be destroyed. The AC isn't destroyed until the second coming.

                Gog is not the Beast from Revelation or the antichrist. Two separate men and events.

                Putin does appear that he could very well be Gog, but I wouldn't say that with 100% certainty.

                  Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

                  I may be wrong about this, but I take this as meaning that communist China coupled with a newly returned to communism Russia will band together against the A/C. Communism allows for NO god and the A/C is going to announce that he is god and expect to be worshipped. God on earth would be an horrible thing for communism and thus, the tidings that would trouble the A/C.

                  If I've interpreted wrong, if there are other thoughts on this verse, please let me know.




                  My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
                  For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

                      Gog is the leader of Magog. A completely different person from the AC. Although Gog will come to a bad end during the war - he appears to die unrepentant, his armies will be buried in Israel. but the Ezekiel 38-39 is not Armageddon. Ezekiel 38-39 only wakens Israel back up, they are not saved at that point and time.

                      The Battle of Ezekiel 38-39 is the event God uses to bring Israel back into covenant with Him (Ezekiel 39:22) which is necessary for the 70th Week of Daniel to begin. By comparing the references to Gog and Magog from Ezekiel 38 with those in Rev. 20:8 you can see they’re not the same. In Ezekiel 38 Gog and Magog lead a specific group of nations to attack Israel while others watch from the sidelines or are not involved at all. But in Rev. 20 the reference to Gog and Magog refers to the whole Earth outside of Israel.

                      11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
                      You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
                      12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
                      O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

                        He does appear to fit every idea a lot of us have about Gog. If he is not, he is an exact replica............

                          Without being 100% sure....he seems to fit the description of Gog almost perfectly. Egomaniac & psychopathic narcissistic murderer!
                          John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

                          John 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.

                          Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

                              Does anyone else think that Gog is a high ranking fallen angel? He is called the chief prince. The prince of Persia is a demonic entity, and Michael is referred to as the Price of Israel. Also, Gog will also be present in the last battle at the end of the millenium. I doubt that Putin will live another 1000+ years.
