Gog Magog: Spiritual Warfare

With all eyes in the professing Christian world watching the events in the Middle East with varying degrees of understanding, it is my hope in this study to bring forth the spiritual rendering of the Gog Magog war. We’ll begin this study by looking at the core text used concerning the Gog Magog War.

Eze 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, Eze 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: Eze 38:4 and I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Eze 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Eze 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Eze 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. Eze 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and isgathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

We’ll stop here and take a look at what is being presented in these first 8 verses of Ezekiel 38, we’ll be using scripture to understand scripture.

Hos 12:10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

Amo 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

When approaching a difficult portion of prophetic scripture we must look to scripture itself for understanding, especially the metaphors, the similitudes, the Lord uses to bring forth his veiled truth. In this introduction to Ez 38 we see many metaphors. We’ll begin with verse 3 with the understanding that Gog is the son of Joel, the significance of this will become clear later in the study. We’ll start with “hook in thy jaw” A prior verse in Ezekiel will bring light to this.

Eze 29:3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.

Eze 29:4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales.

Eze 29:5 And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.

We see Pharoah King of Egypt, the great dragon. In 1 Cor 10 we’re taught

1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

For our admonition, upon whom the end of the world are come, Pharoah is Satan, specifically “the dragon” When we see “dragon” we understand that is refering to Satan when he is seated in the temple of God shewing himself to be God. (2 Thes 2, and Isaiah 14) This ensample in Ezekiel is for our admonition. We also see the signature of Leviathan with his scales.

Job 41:15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as witha close seal.

Act 9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

In a future study we will bring out the full understanding of “the beast out of the sea” found in Rev 13 but for now we will just connect the truth that the beastt out of the sea is about the pride of Pharoh, Saul, the Scribes and Pharasies. We see Leviathan as the signature of pride which is what has allowed the modern prophesing body of Christ to allow the dragon to take up residence in thier temple which is thier heart. The same pride that ultimately lead to the crucifiction of the Messiah. We will see that this is the foundational dynamic at work in Ez 38, the Gog Magog war.
To understand the full context of the metaphor of “hooks in thy jaws” we see in Ez 29:5 the reference to the beasts and the fowls.

Jer 5:27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

Dan 4:12 The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it.

Hos 4:3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Mar 4:32 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

When our Lord told us that

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

It has only come into focus in these last days when the Lord has unsealed his word. Jeremiah, Daniel, Hosea, Mark, John are all showing us understanding to the fowls of the air and the beasts of the field. As this is intended to be a blog post and not a book we must look at the overview of what the Lord is conveying. We see references to a cage, a snare, a hook. These are all pictures of the same thing. We are seeing a body of people being hooked, turned back, snared, caged. These are the apostate, the tares, that are being seperated from the wheat. In these days of tre3mendous peril, the common hope presented by the beast is “peace and safety” this notion comes from people who don’t study scripture. Jesus did not come to bring peace but a sword. We’ll continue looking at the swords being wielded by the “Army of Horsemen”

Isa 1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Rev 2:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

We noticed the reference to the tree of Babylon with the fowls in it’s branches, where “all flesh is feed of it” This is refering to the modern harlot church whose attention is on flesh. Fleshly stimulation from promises of prosperity to those who faithfully give to feed the 501C3 Corporate Beast, to those who get thier weekly recharge of conscience atempting to overcome the never ending conviction of the Holy Spirit hoping to cover the fact they are trampling the Son od God under foot willfully sinning as born again believers. (Heb 10 again a topic for another study) Todays fallen church in it’s attempts to reach the world with the gospel has exchanged growth for purging leaven. Today as taught in Mat 13 the kingdom of heaven, the church, is fully leavened, consumed with pride.

More metaphor to consider in the opening verses of Ezekiel 38, we see the Army equipped with swords, shields, helmets, armour. Any Christian with a 2nd grade sunday school education recognizes the connections here. We also realize this Army is from the North. Understanding the North is the key to understanding the Gog Magog war. Before we proceed we must make note of what is conspicuously absent from the Northern Armies equipment.

Psa 48:2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

Jer 4:6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.

Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

What we are seeing here is Gog Magog, the Army out of the North. This army was on the road to Zion until they were caught and turned by the hook in thier jaw. The similitudes in the understanding of the Army out of the North is the key to understanding the times we live and understanding the dynamics taking place in heavenly realms. Protecting ourselves from this is the diference between spending eternity with our Lord in paradise or spending it in the lake of fire. The spiritual understandings are what affects the soul. These spiritual understanding do work out in the physical, but while the masses of apostate flesh minded christians are attempting to find each new missle installation on the Iranian border, in scripture, they fail to look inside at the spiritual condition of thier hearts and which army they are in. Most christians today have had the hook catch them, they are caught,

Jer 50:24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.

Luk 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

These verses are impossible for todays modern evangelical to believe. Jeremiah tells that God himself sets this snare. Ezekiel prophecies that God himself puts the hook in the jaw. How can this be?

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

For those who need an Ephesians 6 refresher course we noticed that the piece of armour conspicuously missing from their protection is the truth.

Joh 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

We are commanded to put on the full armour of God in Ephesians chapter 6 to be prepared to stand against Gog Magog, the apostate christians who while on their journey to Zion were turned, fell away, allowed that man of sin, the son of perdition, the dragon, to enter their hearts. Why? because they Love not the truth. For this cause God sends strong delusion, BECAUSE THIER LOINS WERE NOT GIRD WITH TRUTH. Jesus fulfilled the everlasting covenant, alowing us to have the law written on our hearts. Today’s modern christian has been taken into captivity, delusion because they are doing wickedly against the covenant. The missing piece of equipment from the Northern Army is “Truth” This Army must be distinguished from the Army in Ephesians 6 The masses of misslead Christians today are believe themselves saved trusting in the “all ya gotta do Gospel” Entering into covenant with God costs us everything, it costs us our life. Very few Christians understand this foundational truth of salvation.

Dan 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

Todays modern Christian is trusting they are covered by grace but fail to have their loins gird with truth, in other words they are naked believing they are “saved” while doing wickedly against the covenant, being corrupted by flatteries. The depth of understanding at work in these first 8 verses are beyond the limits of this blog post, with that in mind we’ll continue.

Eze 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

Here we see the dragon assending out of the bottomless pit, (Rev 9) assending to the mount of the congregation (Is 14)sitting in the temple of God shewing himself to be God.2 Thes 2

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

As brutal as this following statement may sound it is the truth. Today most professing Christians believing they have Jesus living in thier hearts actually have allowed the deciever the counterfieter to come in. Those making lies thier refuge, hiding themselves in falsehood. False doctrine, lies. There are no liars in heaven. These fallen believers have no one to blame but themselves trust false shephards in place of studying to show thmselves approved. Rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 things we must realize, 1 is the level of deception Satan is capable of and 2 that God allows every bit of it, for his purpose. Deception is Gods means of seperation, his sheep hear HIS voice. Those that love not the truth can’t discern Satans voice from the Lords.

Eze 38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, thatat the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

God sends strong delusion, manifest no more clearly today in the apostate group on the scene courting the antichrist, dominionist, christian right abomination, Joels Army. More on Joels Army later in the text.

Eze 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

Pro 25:28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

The land of unwalled villages is the apostate church, living in the flesh with no rule over their spirit. More on walls later.

Eze 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

Eze 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

2Pe 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. The merchants of Tarshish are the false prophets of todays modern harlot church, making merchandise of the cattle, the multitudes, taking a spoil, robbing them of sound doctrine, and taking a prey,

H962 Prey

בּזז

bâzaz

baw-zaz’

A primitive root; to plunder: – catch, gather, (take) for a prey, rob (-ber), spoil, take (away, spoil), X utterly.

Eze 38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know

it?

Dwelling safely

Luk 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, andsothat day come upon you unawares.

In context

Luk 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Luk 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

There’s that snare again

Eze 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

Rev 9:9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

We’ll see conclusively by the end of this study that the Gog Magog war is the 5th trumpet. Thousand years is symbolic, Satan was bound at the cross. He was restrained by the sun a metaphor for the true gospel. This is why our times are so, so perilous.

2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2Ti 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2Ti 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, (more on creeping into houses later)

I couldn’t come up with a more accurate description of the baby boom generation if I tryed. We have seen the results over the past 60 years in society, the baby boom entitlement generations today is in complete spiritual depravity, the church is indistiguishable. Women consumed with the Jezebel spirit are controlling men, leading them around by the nose, willfully sinning disobeying, Gods ordinance, not without reason, spinless men refusing thier roll have become the moron Hollywood portrays them as, children have no fear of the fathers authority, 1/2 the families are broken through divorce, childrens lives shattered. Blatant disregard for scripture, trusting in false grace tollerating outright rebellion, divorced christians remarrying, 1/2 the men are addicted to porn with the leadership included. Liturature deteriorating from Pilgrims Progress to “The Shack”

Isa 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

Eze 2:6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.

Eze 38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Gal 6:16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

The Gog Magog War comes aginst Israel, the Israel of God, the body of people who are in covenant with God, the purpose of this war is to sort out the wheat from the chaff, The whole house of God from the remnant, those who are abiding in Christ from those who are tramping the Son of God under foot.

Rom 9:27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:

This war is between those who are wearing the full armour of God including their loins covered (under covenant) with truth and those who are wearing almost the full armour of God but love now the truth, leaving the 7 the sabath rest and going on to the 8th, going on to perdition. Rev 17, perdition, bottomless pit, MYSTERY BABYLON THE HARLOT. The Gog Magog war is fought with swords. We know the sword is the word. Ultimately this war is between truth and lies, between true rendering and false rendering of scripture.

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Salvation is sanctification, set apart from the world, and belief of the truth. With repeated warning like one of three found in the olivette discourse

Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

You think there would be more interest, more caution, warnings coming from todays pulpits.

Isa 56:10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

Eze 38:17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days manyyears that I would bring thee against them?

The servants the prophets are as present today as any time in history.

Rev 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

Rev 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Declaring the “everlasting gospel”, which is a call to return to the everlasting covenant, saying with a loud voise, “fear God” to a body of professing believers in the Lord Jesus Christ who are dwelling safely, oblivious to the desolate state of spiritual depravity that has befallen them. Why do the servants the prophet need to say with a loud voice, “fear God” becaue the modern evangelical body of apostate believers has no fear of God. They have been corrupted by flatteries by their idol shephards with false hope in a false gospel involving selective reasoning, trusting in grace without truth.

Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

This is the fall of modern babylon which is the apostate church, the tree from Nebacanezers dream, the mustard seed of false doctrine that grows into the tree, where the fowls and beasts find refuge.

Ezek 38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.

Eze 38:19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

Eze 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

Eze 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.

Gog Magog is a war with words, the swords are the words, lies against truth, brother against brother, raging today in your corner church. Mountains represent the high places, the positions of authority, structures are crumbling. The Crystal Cathedral where many of todays social, seeker freindly false doctrines, contrieved by 33 deg Freemason Robert Shuller, passed on to his serpent disciples, Bill Hybels and Rick Warren, has gone bankrupt. The Vatican has purchased the estate. Another story for another day, The communist agenda had on it’s list to take control of the churches and “transform” (now theres a evangelical buzz word for you) from folowing revelatory religion, to social religion. While we’re clearing up false doctrine we need to understand that Jesus called Peter the “rock” because he had the truth revealed to him about his identity from the father. The rock the church is built upon is divine revelation. This is not taught nor followed in today church.

Eze 38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that arewith him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

The tribulation is a storm. Isaiah 28 is a one chapter account of our condition today.

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Isa 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

“Overflowing scourge will surely pass by us” this is the Rapture Cult, making lies thier refuge, fallinf backwards, (hook in the jaw) broken, snared taken, (one taken one left) those who are trusting they will be taken in a coming rapture, in Gods poetic irony, have already been taken, into captivity, by the sword of deception. “But the word of the Lord was upon them”…to bad they aren’t reading it!

Eze 38:23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Amen

Now we move on to Joel keeping in mind the North is a common doctrine throught scripture. We are focusing this study on Ezekiel and Joel.

Joe 1:3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

Joe 1:4 That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.

Joe 1:5 Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.

Joe 1:6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.

Joe 1:7 He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast itaway; the branches thereof are made white.

Here we see an account of generation upon generation loosing something to the locusts, generation upon generation of locusts devouring. New wine, the Holy Spirit being cut off, drunkards drunk on false doctrine, the sound doctrine the locusts have devoured, lions with cheek teeth of a great lion laying the vine (New Covenant) waste, barking the fig tree, (the Old Covenant which the New confirmed)

Enter the fifth trumpet judgement, the first woe. (woe to you scribes and pharasies.) These opening verses in Joel are refering to the genrations of false doctrine that has built the “strong delusion

Rev 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

Rev 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

Rev 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.

Rev 9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.

Rev 9:9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

Satans single biggest move concerning the final falling away was the Jesuits revenge for the reformation. The doctrines brought forth from the footnotes of the Schofield Bible, distributed by Jesuit controlled Oxford Publishing, were arguably the most significant work of Satan in history. Satan knows very well the doctrines to attack. Through criminal, Cyress Scofield, he successfully confounded the Body of Christs understanding of thier identiy as Born Again Israel, the Israel of God, with the law written on thier hearts, the single most important doctrine today for navigating todays deception and Satan has highjacked it. This failure on the part of the church to claim it’s birthright as Israel, giving it to a flesh race of people with a flesh “land” that is little more than a Freemasonic shell game. The true remnant of Israel are gathered to Jerusalem above, spiritual Zion.

Future studies on the Beast out of the Sea will bring forth the bitter sweet truth concerning the Beast, who’s deadly wound was healed, (in 1948) and the False Prophet who causes “them that dwell on the earth to wonder after the beast” The false prophet is the apostate church worshipping flesh Israel oblivious to the fact it is Spiritual Israel.

Jesuits? Catholic Church buying the Crystal Cathedral, The Council for National Policy and the CIA both dominated if not completely controlled by members of the Knights of Malta, controlling Christian Media through Salem Communication with luke warm zionist programming, dominating the Israelcentric Neocon crusaders? Reagan, Bush, Bush, Clinton, Kissenger, Brezinski, Ruppert Murdock, Billy Grahams controller, William Randolph Heart, Rick Joyner, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum …all Knights of Malta sworn in secrecy to protect the Pope? What the heck is going on here?

Why is this an important study? When we have phycopathic religious leaders like John Hagee and Benny Hinn praying for the war in the middle east to begin, we realize we are in much more danger than imagined. Ultimately “The Lie” in 2 Thes 2 has the bully in the playground, Satan himself, successfully fomenting world war 3. All as a result of the false doctrines brought forth from the raptue cult, Schofield bible which are working in lockstep with the Signs and Wonders, camp who’s docrines can be traced to the same time in history, the turn of the 20th century, genrations upon genrations of false doctrines, in this camp concieved in the Azusa Street Revivals, passed along to the point today with the Toronto Blessing and Lakeland Revivals which are demonic manifestations of “That man of sin the son of perdition sitting inthe Temple of God shewing himself to be God. Counterfieting “everything that is called God”

What this writer is describing is The Gog Magog war, the Mighty Men from the North coming against the true Israel of God. False prophets preaching false doctrine are Gog Magog. God in these end times is allowing his own church to judge itself. Gog Magog, when the church turns on itself. The false doctrines, brought forth by the Locusts Scorpions from the bottomless pit are the very instruments of judgement. Beautiful!

Back to Joel, father of Gog. Joel is prophecying the fifth trumpet which is the Gog Magog War. Locusts assending out of the bottomless pit, unto them was given power, (todays false prophets have power over the minds of the apostate with itching ears. Horses prepared for battle, (Ez 38) Lions laying bare the covenant. (vine and fig tree, barked, lost covering, loins once gird with truth, layed naked)

Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Wings the sounds of chariots, sorry Hal Lindsey this isn’t Apache hellicopters. We already understand the horses from the earlier part of the study.

Joel chapter 2 the trumpet

Joe 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

Joe 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

Joe 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

Joe 2:4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.

Joe 2:5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

Joe 2:6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.

Joe 2:7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:

Joe 2:8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

Joe 2:9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

Joe 2:10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

Here we have “Joels Army” locusts devouring sound doctrine, bringing upon the inhabitors of the earth, judgement. They run to and fro in the city, climb the walls, leaving unwalled villages. The sun, the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, blocked out by the locusts, (read plagues) the moon, the church, fallen into apostasy no longer reflecting the light of the true Gospel. The stars falling from the sky. The stars are Abrahams seed, fallen away.

In Gods infinite wisdom and majesty he’s gives us signatures of understanding. Today at the for of the apostasy lie 2 this devouring Army. On one end of the spectrum we have Rick Joyner coining the phrase “Joels Army” with his mascot Todd Bentley who has gone as far asto have tatooed “Jeols Army” into the image of a dog tag to his chest. Lance Walnue picking up the baton from 2 old men dreamers Lorne Cunningham and Bill Bright promoting the Seven Mountains Dominion Theology.

Jer_23:25  I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

With scripture not even hinting of a notion of the church replacing MYSTERY BABYLON THE HARLOT on the 7 mountains, what are these decieved deciever thinking? Jeremiah says

Jer 51:7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

The nations are mad. We have the biggest movement of apostasy on the Christian scene today literally claiming to be Joel’s Army which is Gog Magog, oblivious to the implications as todays Christian has forsaken studying to show themselves approved. Satan is only able to pass these abominations today with the foundation of apostasy, generation upon generation of fasle doctrine consumating the great falling away only in the last 20 years. The years in which the modern dynamic equivelant, alexandrian text, New Age bible translations have passed the King James in sales. Ultimately manifesting today with occultic versions as the “Message” which is the favorite of UN marxist change agent Rick Warren. If we missed this in our face manifestation of the locusts lest we forget the Joel at the other end of the apostate spectrum, corrupting with flatteries promoting “Your Best Life Now”.

Joe 2:20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.

The “stink” is the sins of Babylon

Jer 51:9  We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.

Joe 2:21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.

Joe 2:22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.

Joe 2:23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

Joe 2:24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.

Joe 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

In closing of this brief look at Gog Mogog, the Locust Army from the North we praise the Lord as he promises to remove far off from us the northern army. While todays modern harlot church is reaping what it has sown, getting exactly what it wanted, having itching ears.

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

We see the former rain, the teachers from the former rain moderate outpouring of understanding, preparing the way for tha latter rain outpouring. This will be the true latter rain, again a most important but also a doctrine higjacked by Satan the Dragon.

In Gods poetic brilliance He uses the very teachers to bring judgement to his own house. Our hope is found in scripture.

Dan 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, manydays.

Those that understand among the people will instruct many, not without consequences. We see the 5th trumpet all but fully manifest today we shutter to think what comes next as the 6th trumpet involves the martyrs.

Jer 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

Jer 30:11 For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.

Jer 30:12 For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound isgrievous

As we see the fate for Jacob

Jer 51:19 The portion of Jacob is not like them; for he is the former of all things: and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: the LORD of hosts is his name.

Jer 51:20 Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;

Gods remnant prevails they are His battle axe, as the Gog Magog war rages, Gods battle axe is his remnant body speaking the truth against the lies the false doctrine that the years of the “locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. “

Eze 37:10  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Rev 11:11  And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

We need to understand there are 2 armies here. Both are God’s for his purpose. The good guys and the bad guys. The Army in Ezekiel a37 and Rev 11 “Standing upon thier feet” is the waking apostate multitudes coming out of thier drunken false doctrine stupor, coming against the variety of “Locusts” in Joel.

Isa_29:24  They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

In these times of tremendous peril, deception coming at us like firey darts we need to be sure of our election.

2Pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

2Co 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Reprobates are those who have been sent strong delusion.

Scripture when understood though the metaphors is the same story told a thousand different ways. The true church against the false church, the wheat against the tares. As alway this account of the battle ends in the same place it always does, the harvest. Decption, false doctrine is Gods mechanism of seperation, his threshing floor, as the wheat is seperated from the chaff. His sheep hear his voice, his sheep are not decieved it isn’t possible.

Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, ifit were

possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

1Pe 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

“Scarcely Saved” my Pastor never told me that.

    Lev. 26: 40If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;
    41And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
    42Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
