Charles "Chuck" Missler was an author, evangelical Christian, and Bible teacher, and former businessman and Air Force officer. He is the founder of the Koinonia House ministry based in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho/5. Magog Revisited Chuck Missler article - Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 describe the occasion in which God Himself intervenes to quell the ill-fated invasion of Israel by Magog and its allies (Persia, Cush, Phut, Libya, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech, and Tubal). This passage also appears to anticipate the use of nuclear weapons. I deal with this claim in my forthcoming book The Magog Invasion: Why Modern-Day Prophecy Writers are Wrong and Dangerous.  The proverb has been corrupted and is often stated as “The proof is in the pudding.”  Hal Lindsey, The Road to Holocaust (New York: Bantam Books, ), Emphasis in original. The invasion is sometimes referred to as the Gog-Magog war since it is led by “Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal from out of the far north” (Ezek ,15). Here, ‘Gog’ could be the leader of the coalition against Israel, or a specific anti-God people living in the land of Magog.
God reveals a fascinating and detailed prophecy about a future war campaign against Israel in the book of Ezekiel. This war is known as the "Gog and Magog War" because the people of Magog and their leader Gog will lead the attack against Israel. Scripture clearly teaches that this particular war will be a turning point for Israel, with regard. Hal Lindsey said Russia would lead an invasion of Israel. Several decades ago, in the early 70s, the world was introduced to Hal Lindsey During those years Mr. Lindsey became a household name. And he still is a popular author and Bible prophecy teacher. Hal Lindsey wrote a book titled “The Late Great Planet Earth. The book of Revelation uses Ezekiel’s prophecy about Magog to portray a final end-times attack on the nation of Israel (Revelation ). The result of this battle is that all are destroyed, and Satan will find his final place in the lake of fire (Revelation ). The Revelation Millennial invasion by Gog and Magog involves the full forces of every remaining rebel against God on Earth. In the initial invasion described above, The Lord specifically preserves “one sixth” of Gog’s forces from destruction.
The war of Gog and Magog is the major bible prophecy of our day. In other words I think that we will see the Magog invasion begin very soon. Magog was a man. He was one of Noah’s grandsons. There are several places in the bible that talk about an invasion against Israel that are led by Magog. That the Gog-Magog Battle was fulfilled in Ezekiel’s day by an invasion of the Scythians, Babylonians or Greeks fails to fulfill the roster of nations that compile the Gog-Magog invasion force. Also, it fails to address Ezekiel chapters which prophesy a regathering of Jews to Israel from all over the world using the end-timing clues. In 1 Chronicles (see Chronicles, books of the), Gog is identified as a descendant of the prophet Joel, and in Ezekiel 38–39, he is the chief prince of the tribes of Meshech and Tubal in the land of Magog, who is called upon by God to conquer the land of a great coalition of forces from throughout the world, Gog and his entire army will invade Israel “like a cloud covering. It is also significant to notice that the motivation of the invasion attempt by Magog and its allies is to take spoil: gold, silver, cattle and goods. 1 The Ezekiel account also includes participants from distant lands. This leaves us with a puzzling anomaly: the players listed in Ezekiel seem to exclude any.
