Gog/Magog Coalition Update

Excerpts from Joel C. Rosenberg’s just released book ‘Enemies and Allies.’  His ‘Witness’ of the ‘Gog/Magog Coalition’ Developments. ‘Once Russia’s / Iran’s / Turkey’s armies are decimated by GOD, leaving only 1/6th of their armies intact, the BEAST’s power will rise almost instantaneously and stratospherically in the Middle East. ‘Who can make war or come against the Beast?’ The Beast will have no enemies left, except for Islamic Extremism and Terrorism.

A brief introduction before you read each ‘article or excerpt’:

Disclaimer. I make ‘no claim’ or take no responsibility for the following comments expressed by Mr. Joel C. Rosenberg. They are his statements and insights, not mine. However, I ‘parsed’ Mr. Rosenberg’s entire book, ‘Enemies and Allies’, which is a profound testimony (and evidence) for God’s prophecies as mentioned throughout the Bible, regarding the ‘end times’ and ‘7 year tribulation period.’  I doubt that he knows this. As such, I felt motivated to share the following excerpts that are directly related to these prophecies. I will provide the appropriate biblical context and verses for each ‘category’ related to MbS’s ‘involvement’. This should prove beyond a shadow of any doubt, just where we are in terms  of the rapture, harpazo, redemption, ‘twinkling of an eye’ or the ‘catching up / falling away.’ As I have said several times previously, our correct focus should be on Jesus Christ. However, I feel motivated to present writing, observations and ‘truth’s about the Beast, his ‘SEAT’ (Neom) and all of his related associations around the world. Why? Simply to warn the church, at least those who will listen and those who are empowered by the Holy Spirit to discern the truth to these things. I take no reward, or glory in showing or knowing or revealing these things. The glory belongs to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They are the ones ‘revealing’ these findings to show the impeccable truth of God’s words and the accuracy of the ancient prophet’s prophecies. The second reason to show and reveal these things is simple. ‘For when you see these things come to pass, look up for your redemption draws nigh, give comfort to one another with these words.’ God has allowed Christ’s Bride or True Church to still be on earth for the past four years (almost to the date) since the GREAT Revelation 12 Sign regarding the rapture or ‘catching up’ of Christians or the ‘baby’ depicted in the sign. This occurred on September 23, 2017. Just a few days ago marked September 23, 2021. Four (4) yeas since ‘the sign’ was revealed in the heavens. I wrote this commentary over the week of September 23, 2021. Imagine that!

Mr. Rosenberg is most likely the ‘best’ human witness on earth to provide ‘proof’ of the ‘insider workings’ of these various prophetic developments. I surmise that God enabled Mr. Rosenberg to be present and in person to witness and write his comments and views to help provide ‘proof’ as to the times we live in. It just takes someone to discern them, organize them, and put them into the proper biblical context. Prayerfully, I hope that I am able to do justice to the task in a truthful and empowered way. Jesus will be the judge of not only what I write, but also of what others have written. That is the way it is.

Although I sincerely doubt Mr. Rosenberg knows who I am, I nonetheless would like to thank him for what he courageously shares. However, I doubt that he is aware of the role he is playing because his focus in clearly on Israel and her developments prior to the onset of Jacob’s week. I am not disparaging Mr. Rosenberg, nor am I critical. Without his witness, the world would be less aware. Unfortunately, as I have painfully written, the week of Jacob’s trouble is about to start and the ‘faith and trust and hope’ that the Jews are placing in MbS are extremely misplaced. Israel has obviously no idea, and has been blinded, as to who their political and military ‘confirmer’ is. I will not belabor the point here.

Ultimately, each of us has to make our own individual decisions as to whether or not these things are true. The Holy Spirit will help you. The Holy Spirit tells you to test or discern the spirit of what is being said, against God’s word in scripture. You have to make your own decision, just like you had to make your own decision to accept God’s and Jesus’ forgiveness of your sins, through your acceptance of Christ, the shedding of his blood and through his resurrection.

Since the following ‘analysis’ could become burdensomely large, I will try to provide the most direct and well known biblical references to each topic. If you choose to research these topics in greater detail for yourself, you are welcome to read my other blogs that obviously provide more details than what I will share below. The following is a 70,000 foot view of what I feel moved to in discerning the ‘signs of the times’ in a more specific way related to the coming Man of Lawlessness, the Son of Perdition, the Wicked One. You can agree or disagree, the choice is yours. If you are intrigued, do your own ‘homework’ or research, perhaps you will come to the same conclusion, get your life in order and become excited to meet our Lord Jesus Christ.

Excerpts from Joel C. Rosenberg’s just released book ‘Enemies and Allies.’  His ‘Witness’ of the ‘Gog/Magog Coalition’ Developments. ‘Once Russia’s / Iran’s / Turkey’s armies are decimated by GOD, leaving only 1/6th of their armies intact, the BEAST’s power will rise almost instantaneously and stratospherically in the Middle East. ‘Who can make war or come against the Beast?’ The Beast will have no enemies left, except for Islamic Extremism and Terrorism.

Excerpts from Mr. Joel Rosenberg’s recent publication ‘Enemies and Allies’.

MbS’ conflict with IRAN and the ‘Gog/Magog’ Coalition:

(NW note; Once Iran’s military is reduced by 5/6ths in Ezekiel 38-39, along with Turkey and Russia, this paves the way for the almost instantaneous stratospheric rise of the beast. He will have almost no enemies (EXCEPT for Islamic extremism and terrorism). ‘Who can make war or come against the beast?’)

MbS, “The leaders of Iran believe that the end of the world is here,” I explained during the Fox News interview. “They believe that the ISLAMIC messiah, the Twelfth Imam, is coming imminently – that is the word they’re using: imminent. And they believe their mission in life is to hasten or speed up the coming of the Islamic messiah by destroying Judeo-Christian civilizations as we know it.  “Prime Minister Netanyahu understands this. … I’ve talked to him about it.” (p. 16)

(Joel Rosenberg) Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. … They just disagree among themselves who will be ruler of the empire. (p. 17)

(Joel Rosenberg) Many also worry that Tehran has been steadily and successfully building a political, economic, and military alliance with two of the world’s most troubling leaders – Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Tehran is turning to Moscow and Ankara, hoping to achieve objectives in an alliance that it cannot achieve alone. (p. 23)

Tehran Turns to Putin

(Joel Rosenberg) Consistently stymied and stalled – if not fully thwarted – in their bid for the Persian Bomb, the ayatollahs and mullahs in Tehran have turned their eyes to Moscow in recent years. Tehran wants to dramatically expand the threat it can pose the U.S., Israel, and the Sunni Arab (NW, Saudi Arabia) world by aligning itself in every possible way with Moscow. (p. 27)

(Joel Rosenberg) Putin attributed “the appearance of a multipolar world order” to global economic development. But, he said, the world “cannot have a unipolar structure with just one center that controls the entire global community.” In Khamenei, Putin has embraced on the leading anti-American figures on the planet. Putin is convinced that the Iranian regime is serving his purposes. (p. 28)

(Joel Rosenberg) The Russian-Iranian alliance is troubling enough. Now add in Turkey. With some 375,000 active-duty soldiers under arms, Ankara has the largest military in Europe. (p. 33)

(Joel Rosenberg) Erdogan has pivoted the country toward the Middle East and often practiced Islamist solidarity in foreign policy to make Turkey a great regional power. Across the Middle East, Erdogan [threw] his support exclusively behind the Muslim Brotherhood, the region’s original and largest Islamist movement. (p. 35). (NW note, the beast considers the Muslim Brotherhood to an Islamic terrorist organization.)

Referenced ‘headlines’ concerning Turkey’s ‘attitude’ toward Israel



(Joel Rosenberg)… These men [Erdogan, Putin, Khamenei] share several common objectives. Driven by their own fierce sense of nationalism (among other motives), they are deeply unhappy and increasingly determined to frustrate and neutralize (if possible) American economic, geopolitical, and military power. Not convinced they can effectively challenge American supremacy individually, the three are progressively joining forces and looking for targets (NW, Israel) of opportunity. Goss calls it “an unholy alliance.’ (p. 41)

(Joel Rosenberg) One thing is certain: The growing threat posed by Moscow, Tehran, and Ankara has forced every leader in the region – most specifically the leaders of Sunni Arab states (NW, read Saudi Arabia) – to fundamentally rethink: Who is my friend, and who is my foe? “These [Arab] countries realize that the threat to the region is not the United States, it’s not Israel; it’s not Christianity. It is Iran and Iran’s radical Islamism,” along with Iran’s growing ties with Russia and Turkey. (p. 41)

(Joel Rosenberg) The crown prince had denounced Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as ‘the new Hitler.” He confirmed that he had said it and meant it. MbS added the Iranian regime wanted to take over the Saudi Kingdom and destroy Yemen. (p 171)


(Joel Rosenberg)

Though the ancient biblical prophets did not describe all future events in every country, they wrote extensively about specific events that will happen in the specific countries that are uniquely part of God’s plan for mankind. Most of these countries are in the Middle East.

In Ezekiel 38-39, the Hebrew prophet describes an eschatological conflict in the Middle East known as the war of Gog and Magog. As I wrote about extensively in my 2006 nonfiction book, Epicenter: Why the Current Rumblings in the Middle East Will Change Your Future, some evangelical Bible scholars (though by all no means all) believe Ezekiel 38-39 describes a coalition of armies lead by Russia (referred to the prophecy as the ancient regions of Magog, Rosh, and Meshech), Iran (ancient Persia), Turkey (ancient Gomer), and other powers who will come against Israel to attack her in the last days.

The text does not indicate that Israel or any of her allies will fight or defeat the enemy coalition. Rather, the prophet states that God himself will supernaturally intervene, rescue Israel, defeat her enemies, and bring judgement to the enemies in order to draw mankind to himself.

Ezekiel 38:18-19

“It will come about on that day, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” declares the Lord GOD, “that my fury will mount up in My anger. In my zeal and in my blazing wrath I declare that on that day there will certainly be a great earthquake in the land of Israel ….

“With plague and with blood I will enter into judgement with him; and I will rain on him and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, torrential rain, hailstones, fire, and brimstone. So I will prove Myself great, show Myself holy, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the LORD.”

What is particularly interesting about Ezekiel 36-39 is that there are five prerequisites for the war of Gog and Magog to come to pass.

  1. After centuries in exile, the Jewish people must be returning to land of Israel en masse: “But you, mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home. … I will cause people, my people Israel, to live on you. They will possess you” (Ezekiel 36:8, 12 NIV).
  2. The Jewish people must be rebuilding the ruins of their ancient homeland: “The towns will be inhabited, and the ruins rebuilt” (Ezekiel 36:10)
  3. The sovereign State of Israel must be prophetically reborn and become militarily strong, having “an exceeding great army” (Ezekiel 37:10)
  4. After years of conflict and strife, the people of Israel enter a season where they feel that “they are living securely” and “are at rest.” (Ezekiel 37:8, 11)
  5. Israel is experiencing a remarkable season of prosperity, causing their enemies to desire “to capture spoils and to seize plunder” (Ezekiel 37:12)

NW note; Destruction of the Gog/Magog Coalition (Iran, Turkey, Russia, et. al) military;

What is the biggest fear in the Middle East today?

(Joel Rosenberg) That America will lose interest in the region, act naively, or pull out. Tired of war, burdened with massive and growing debt, what if the United States cannot or will not stay engaged in the most volatile and dangerous region in the world? Many Arabs and Israelis worry they are witnessing a slow but steady American retreat from the Middle East. Knowing that nature abhors a vacuum, they fear a reduction of American participation in the Middle East because they believe that only a robust American-Israeli-Sunni Arab alliance can counter the rising threats posed by Russia, Iran and Turkey [NW note; Gog/Magog Coalition], combined with the growing ambitions of China and North Korea. Such fears are responsible, in part, for driving Israelis and Arabs to work more closely together. (p. 296-297)

Ezekiel 39 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee [5/6ths destroyed], and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028-3028).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 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

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
