The Silence is Broken: Gog Hooks Ezekiel’s Gog and Magog
by Douglas Berner
The world as we know it is about to change abruptly and dramatically. God is about to break His long period of heavenly silence. This event is critically important to all people on the face of the planet—Jews, Muslims, many professing Christians and atheists . . . people from all walks of life will face a global earthshaking event unprecedented in the history of mankind. Every person in the world will be affected in some way by this event.
In the Old Testament, the prophet Ezekiel portrays a massive end-times invasion of Israel, led by an enigmatic character called Gog, of the land of Magog. Although God gave Ezekiel this prophecy thousands of years ago, it was destined to play out within the context of the modern global world. The War of Gog and Magog and the divine intervention that follows to save Israel, will lead many to believe the golden Messianic Age is at hand. But God has other plans.
The land and the people of Israel lie at the center of Ezekiel’s prophecy and like a bug caught in the center of a spider web, Israel is helplessly mired in a web of circumstances where its security is seriously threatened, it’s friends are few, and its options are limited. Israel approaches its prophesied “End Times” and along with that looms this unfulfilled prophecy of Gog and Magog, which nags over Israel, the Middle East and the entire world like the fabled Sword of Damocles.
The prophecy which the prophet Ezekiel presents in chapters 38 and 39 may be the most neglected prophecy of the end times. While a few books have been written on the subject over the years, there has never been a work quite like the detective-like research of author Douglas Berner. He’s produced 367 pages of comprehensive and stunning detail on this soon-coming battle, full of little known information from many sources. Doug just so happens to be a retired criminal investigator who carefully applies skills of case analysis and criminal evidence to a thorough examination of the Bible’s end times puzzle!
Here’s a quote from the Qu’ran, Surah 21:96-97—”But when Gog and Magog are let loose and rush headlong down every hill; when the true promise nears its fulfillment, the unbelievers shall stare in amazement, crying: Woe to us! Of this we have been heedless. We have done wrong.”
In the aftermath of God’s heavenly intervention and the total destruction of Gog and Magog, you may come to recognize the true identity of the peoples of Gog and Magog and the alliance that follows them as well as the identity of the unbelievers mentioned in this Surah. The Russians are Gog and Magog and the alliance who invades God’s land of Israel is Islam. Who are the unbelievers? They are the followers of Islam who allow themselves to become partners with the atheistic Magogites and who turn their back on the true God of Israel. In the aftermath of Gog ‘s destruction on the mountains of Israel, Islam will be forced to proclaim, “We have done wrong!”
Berner offers an amazing read on this subject. While we may not be in full agreement on the timing of all of the end time events, this amazing work will become an important resource for an event that may happen sooner than we think. Without a doubt this is easily THE MOST detailed book ever written ont his subject. He asks some questions that we all wonder about.
