“A pair of MiG-31K aircraft with the ability to use the latest hypersonic missiles from the Kinzhal complex flew from Russian airfields to the Russian airbase Khmeimim in Syria for exercises.” -Russia’s Defense Ministry

“We conducted a successful test firing of a Kinzhal missile from MiG 31K aircraft at a virtual target in the Mediterranean. The planes took off from a Khmeimim base in Syria.” Russia’s Defense Ministry

Ezekiel 38:2 “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him…”

What does secular history say about the Magogians? Who are they? In the 7th century BC, Hesiod the Greek poet identified the Scythians as people of modern day southern Russia. Hesiod’s writings pre dated the Ezekiel the prophet.

The Father of History, Herodotus, labeled the descendants of Magog by their Greek name, Scythians. This occurred in the 5th century AD.

About 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel says Russia will be joined by Turkey, Iran, Libya, possibly Sudan and Ethiopia. There intent is a future invasion of Israel.

On August 15, 2016, Russia acquired its first permanent air base in Syria, the Khmeimim Air Base near Latakia, Syria. The Russians have been building and expanding their military presence in the region since.
