The Old Testament prophet Ezekiel made some extraordinary end-time predictions. Ezekiel named a group of nations who would come from the “uttermost” parts of the north to attack Israel in the “latter days.” It’s become known as the Battle of Gog and Magog. Most theologians believe that coalition of nations is led by Russia and Iran, but Turkey is now being mentioned as a possible participant. Current events are ramping up interest in this ancient prophecy. Russia is dug in deep in Middle East affairs, literally right on Israel’s northern border. Iran continues to call for Israel’s complete destruction. Turkey, once an ally, is now increasingly militant towards Israel. The stage is set and no one understands this prophecy better than Gary Stearman and Pastor Andy Woods. Is a “Middle East Meltdown” right at the door?

Hi, I would like to know your stand on the battle of Ezekiel 38. Do you think it is Pre-Trib or happens during the Tribulation … or as some say … after [that]? And why [do you] believe your answer?
Thanks for the question. For years (even decades, now), my position on your question has remained much the same. I have long taught that the great northern invasion of Israel by Gog comes at the beginning of the Tribulation.
I believe this because Ezekiel’s narrative includes an amazing statement that comes as close to being an absolute time marker as anything found in the Bible. It contains four key words that designate a close linkage between two things: The Gog Invasion and The Tribulation...
"Congratulations to Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich for the valiant job they have done through the years of faithful Bible prophecy teaching. Now, they are launching out on a new step of faith continuing the work God has called them to – teaching Bible prophecy and making available high quality prophecy helps for pastors and Bible teachers. The Bible has the answers to what is going on in this chaotic world and these two men are committed to getting out God’s truth, which today is desperately needed. I am confident God will bless their faithfulness to Him and His prophetic Word – and this new ministry."– Tim LaHaye
"I call Gary Stearman Elder Brother, and there's a good reason for it. Gary is further up the trail than I am. It is a title of respect for a man whose Biblical knowledge surpasses most everyone I know. When I'm not sure of some Bible passage or need clarification, I bounce it off my Elder Brother. Peggy and I wish Gary and Bob well with their new ministry, Prophecy Watchers."– L.A. Marzulli
"As a follower of Gary Stearman’s articles and books for many years, I know him to be a faithful and solid expositor of God’s Word, especially where it pertains to prophecy. His insights are truly amazing! He and Bob Ulrich have taken a bold step to establish a new ministry, dedicated to upholding high standards of interpretation. More than that, they consistently maintain the long tradition of systematic theology that has provided Christians the kind of comfort and confidence that brings peace amidst the growing tumult and anxiety so typical of these last days. My best wishes and prayers go with both of them in their new and faithful venture."– Tom Horn, SkyWatchTV
"Two of Christianity’s most important sages are about to author a new chapter in the end time’s story. The Lord has challenged Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich to champion a new ministry called “Prophecy Watchers.” Like a piano tuner to the pianist, Bob and Gary have formed an inseparable relationship that is destined to soar into new uncharted heights.
Gary has provided the prophetic community with years of sound dispensational teaching, while Bob has filtered through volumes of Christian manuscripts to uncover only the best biblical books. Together, they have provided us prophecy watchers with our timeliest teachings.
Gary and Bob’s new excellent adventure promises to put the prophetic puzzle pieces together like never before, so that we can all glean a greater glimpse of what’s in store for the world’s future."– Bill Salus, Author and founder of Prophecy Depot Ministries
We count it a blessing to have hosted Gary Stearman and his ministry during our 2014 Prophecy conference. Since that time I have come to know Gary as not just a watchman of our day but a true Bible scholar who God has uniquely qualified hence equipped to speak Gods truths about His Second Coming. I see Gary’s primary gifting in helping us to use Gods Word to make sense out of all the chaos in and around the world today.
During our last trip to Oklahoma City we were amazed at how God is continuing to raise up and equip Prophecy Watchers as one of the preeminent End Times ministries of our day. Bob, Gary, and Doris, well done, keep up the good fight, and we thank you for all of the hard work and help you give to Pastors and the church.– Pastor Tom Hughes, endtimestv.org
In a day when “ear-ticklers” and “scoffers” abound, it is a great encouragement to me that God has opened a new door of opportunity for Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich. These are men of personal integrity with a sterling reputation and long track record of proclaiming the more sure word of prophecy with clarity, confidence and urgency. What a joy that their talents will continue to be widely used of God in the proclamation of the rich and comforting truths contained in the premillennial, pretribulational and dispensational teachings of the Scripture. They stand on the shoulders of a long line of faithful scholars, such as Darby, Scofield, Chafer, Walvoord, Ryrie, Pentecost, LaHaye and others, in the proclamation of the Word of God in these last days! From a “sister ministry” in Oklahoma City, I pray God’s richest blessing on Gary and Bob in this new faith venture!– David Schnittger, President – Southwest Prophecy Ministries
