The Israeli media says President Bush's warning of WWIII could be the Biblical War of Gog and Magog

The Israeli media, referring to the statements made by President Bush about a nuclear Iran that would mean WWIII, the two major television channels in Israel in their newscast, featured Gog and Magog maps of the likely alignment of nations in that potential conflict.

Channels two and ten, showing the world map, sketched the basic alignment of the two opposing axes in a coming war in a manner evoking association of the Gog and Magog prophecy centered on the Holy Land and Jerusalem which appears in the book of Ezekiel in the Bible. In a surprise visit to Russia by Israeli PM Ehud Olmert, the Israeli leader discussed with the Russian President Vladimir Putin the Russian-Iranian partnership as well as Russia's continued supply of weapons to Syria.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A discussion of the Biblical war of Gog and Magog on Israeli television in reference to President Bush's statement about Iran and WWIII is a precursor to the End Times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

In the newscast on two of the main television channels in Israel, the journalists sounded more like prophecy teachers than they did newscasters. These media people showed world maps revealing what they believed would be the basic alignment of nations in a present-day potential conflict which would include Iran and other Middle Eastern nations that have a working relationship with Russia.

This report of the potential for WWIII and the connection to Gog and Magog, is right out of the pages of Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote 2,500 years ago of a major conflict that would include both Iran and Russia plus the other Middle Eastern nations in an alignment against Israel, Ezekiel 38. The Jewish prophet revealed that this major conflict would happen at a time when there was a peace in place in the Middle East, Ezekiel 38:8, 11, describing a time when Israel is dwelling safely in the land.

The stage is being set for this prophetic drama to be played out, the actors are quickly moving into place, the lights are dimming and the curtain is about to go up.
