Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

The Bible and ancient historians point to the fact the land of Magog is modern day Russia. See attached post.

For Scripture support indicating these areas being Turkey, see the link below.

On July 31, 2016 Russian News Agency Tass, Sputnik News, and RT.com are reporting a rumored second attempted coup of the Turkey government. 7,000 Turkish troops have surrounded the joint United States and NATO Incirlik Air Base. The air base is reported to hold 50-90 nuclear weapons. This is reported to be the largest nuclear weapons unit in Europe.

Turkish authorities are saying this is for security reasons only. The operation has been deemed a “safety inspection”. They also added “there is no problem”. Air space over the base has been closed.

Earlier in the week, approximately 1,000 surrounded the air base and protested with chants of “Death to America” and anti-Israeli talk.

This is being reported in Australia, Israel and other news outlets around the world.

It appears Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan are making up after the Russian fighter jet was shot down by Turkey earlier in the year (2016). Russia has a slippery slope playing both sides of Islam, Sunni (Turkey and majority of Muslim nations) and Shia (Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Hezbollah)…

The Scripture references above state Russia and Turkey will be allies in the end times invasion of Israel.

Trend Update: Russia (Magog)/Israel, Ezekiel 38-39, December 9, 2015

Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

meshech

Magog was a son of Japheth. Genesis 10:2 The sons of Japheth were Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras. Japheth was the son of Noah. The sons of Japheth were born after the flood (Genesis 10:1).

The Bible and ancient historians point to the fact the land of Magog is modern day Russia. See attached post.

But what about the brothers of Magog? They include Gomer, Meshech, and Tubal.

Gomer means “complete”. Historians through the ages debate whether they lived north or south of the Black Sea. North of the Black Sea is modern day Russia. South of the Black Sea is modern day Turkey.

Meshech means “drawing out”; a people on the borders of Colchis (the land area east of the Black Sea). Armenia is effectively modern day eastern Turkey. Today (November 2015), the region of Meshech is modern day Turkey, Russia, and Georgia.

Tubal means “thou shall be brought”; a region in east Asia Minor (modern day Eastern Turkey).

Beth Togarmah: Beth is Hebrew for house. Togarmah means “thou will break her”.  People consider this to be Armenia. At its peak, the Armenian Empire was from modern day Syria on the Mediterranean Sea to south of the Black Sea and east to the Caspian Sea. Historically, Turkey is also known as the House of Togarmah.

Definitions are from Strong’s Concordance. Historical evidence from Google images, Wikipedia.

The brothers of Magog (Meshech, Gomer, and Tubal) appear to point to modern day Turkey.

Russia will be joined by several countries in their future invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). One of those countries is modern day Turkey.

What? Turkey has recently taken out a Russian fighter jet in disputed air space (November 2015). Russian leader Vladimir Putin has called this act “a stab in the back”. At this time, Russia and Turkey are clearly not on friendly terms.

Putin (December 9, 2015) has introduced the option of nuclear weapons in Syria in a press release. “With regard to strikes from a submarine. We certainly need to analyze everything that is happening on the battlefield, how the weapons work. Both the (Kalibr) missiles and the Kh-101 rockets are generally showing very good results. We now see that these are new, modern and highly effective high-precision weapons that can be equipped either with conventional or special nuclear warheads. Naturally, we do not need that in fighting terrorists, and I hope we will never need it. But overall, this speaks to our significant progress in terms of improving weaponry and equipment being supplied to the Russian army and navy.”

At some point in the future, Russia is prophesied to invade Israel. The Bible says Russia and Turkey are going to join forces and invade Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). If this is the time leading up to Russian invasion of Israel, I trust Russia and Turkey will kiss and make up. Maybe Russia invades Turkey. At any rate, the Bible says they will join forces to invade Israel.
