This war will end with God destroying this army with an overflowing rain,and great hailstones,fire and brimstone. Thus God will magnify himself and sanctify himself, and will be known in the eyes of many nations and they shall know that l am the Lord. Weather this happens before or during the tribulation l don't know, but in either case it is God how stops this army.
So my question is, how could God let his victory over them, have any place for the antchrist to either rise up to power (7 year peace deal)or take responsibility for it during the tribulation. the scriptures are very clear that he (God) will be known in the eyes of many nations and they shall know that l am the Lord. Psalm 64:9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God: for they shall wisely consider of his doing.

Hello Steve, Welcome to the forum. Disciple4Life here- your brother in Tennessee.
I don't know if this is what you are referring to but here's a thought. JD Farag is a Christian Lebanese Arab pastor- raised Muslim and he became a Christian at age 19. He said this Ezekiel 38 war - the reason no nation will help Israel is 1. Because we will be raptured and the few allies she does have - USA, England, Canada etc will be in total hysteria and anarchy because of all the military , law enforcement and congressional leaders missing, and 2. Israel will be literally surrounded by her enemies- plus Russia, Turkey and Iran- plus all the other Muslim countries that hate Israel- Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, so all the world will see that it was God Alone who saved Israel.
Thanks to all how replied, the timing of jeff's article on Gog l believe was GODs timing for sure. Over the last couple of months, l have really been struggling to understand how God could bring such protection to Israel and devastation to the armies of invaders and then give that glory to another (Antichrist) just never made sense to me.
EnochWalked: Soon scientists will be able to create a human embryo whose genes were decided on a computer, with DNA not from any specific parents. It would probably have to be born of a human mother, until they perfect artificial wombs, but it could be a virgin birth.

bora: Can't wait until men have artificial wombs and give birth to artificial babies. Now that is progress!

visit-r: You have to wonder about Purim. It is an "appointed time" according to Esther 9:27, but it is not a "moedim" appointed feast day. As such, it is usually ignored in end times. Maybe it has some kind of "hidden" significance? Curious, that is the theme.

visit-r: Interesting too EnochWalked. Maybe what the "tomb" represents makes them feel nervous and uneasy?

bernie: Gary, I agree with EW, an update would be awesome. I had a question as well from the same article. You mentioned the 2018-2028 time frame as an interesting possible window for all of it, and I was wondering if that date range has changed for you? Thanks!

Servant: FYI, the article said April - May 2019 is the time frame to watch out for.
