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.
bernie: she feels much warmer by touch. I tried to find an old fashioned thermometer last night, went to 5 stores, nobody has any, not even the battery operated ones. Thanks!

EnochWalked: I do wonder whether The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree (Luke 13) is relevant here. Israel's 70th was 2018 (to 2019), so their 71st was 2019 (to 2020). So are we near the end of the extra year given to them? Alternatively, the 4th year since 2017 (verse 7).

disciple4life: Excellent video on Resurrection Day [Easter] and the common myths that Christians have believed. It also exposes the deliberate act by Catholic church to separate Passover from Resurrection - also exposes Good Friday Myth & Palm Sunday Myth.
