This week we'll continue our look at the Ezekiel prophecies. The Lord showed Ezekiel that in the latter days, after the regathering of Israel into the land (1948), that the Lord would gather armies from the north to invade Israel for plunder. Among these nations are Russia, Turkey, Afghanistan, Iran, and several others who will form a military alliance to invade Israel.
It would seem that depleted resources and shortages may have some impact on their desire to travel south and invade the Holy Land, but the ultimate motivation is the work of God to draw them into judgment. As they come, the Lord will intervene and destroy these armies before they get there, and both Israel and the world will glory in His name.
The Gog/Magog invasion is not the same as Armageddon. As we finish the chapter, we'll talk about some striking differences between the two.
