Are the End-TIme Wars Already Here or Just on the Horizon?
Recently we chanced to view an interesting Israeli documentary (in Hebrew),
"Has the Third World War Began?
IDF General Yischak Brik and IDF General Gershon Ha-Cohen discuss recent developments with Moderator Elazar Shtorm (in Hebrew).
When the recent conflict broke out the USA had the option of using NATO forces to help Ukraine against Russia.
Instead it chose to assist through Advanced Information Processing, Ciber Resources, and State of the Art Analysis of Myriad Facts. This was done to a degree and at a level that only a World Super-Power is capable of supplying.
Ukraine received from the CIA the Military Plans of Russia. It also benefited from moral-support, financial backing, and advanced weaponry. This came from all over Europe and from other US allies such as South Korea.
Russia on its side received help from Iran in the form of drones,and military equipment, and much aid from China. There is a danger that Russia will be pressured to use nuclear weapons.
We do not think that a World War will come about from the present crisis but it could lay the ground for one in the future.
Our understanding of Prophecy and History is that of a spiralling evolvement. We begin with a predicated prototype where the protagonists are drawn from the experience and reality of the Prophet in his time. He sees things and hears about them. These are contemplated upon and the Prophet foresees events in the distant future. What he sees always contains elements of what he is actually experiencing. Thus, a Prophet may describe horses and chariots, swords, spears, arrows, etc. He applies these terms to their equivalents in our time since to some degree he experiences them in terms of his own in his own era. Most of the Prophets experiences events taking place during the rise and fall of ancient Assyria, Babylonia, and Persia. They used what they saw to extrapolate into the distance future while still experiencing them to some degree in terms of their time. The Prophets described events that will primarily take place in the End Times or in the time leading up to them.
Between the time of initial Prophecy and that of its full realization the time space will be filled with events similar to those described. The closer we get to the Grand Finale the more similar do the events become to it.
There were those who considered the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815) to be those Gog and Magog.
Later it was WW1 (1914-1918).
Then WW2 (1939-1945).
The present Ukraine-Russia conflict also has aspects of Gog and Magog.
1 NOW THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME TO ME, SAYING, 2 SON OF MAN, SET YOUR FACE AGAINST GOG, OF THE LAND OF MAGOG, THE PRINCE OF ROSH, MESHECH, AND TUBAL, AND PROPHESY AGAINST HIM, 3 AND SAY, THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD: BEHOLD, I AM AGAINST YOU, O GOG, THE PRINCE OF ROSH, MESHECH, AND TUBAL. 4 I WILL TURN YOU AROUND, PUT HOOKS INTO YOUR JAWS, AND LEAD YOU OUT, WITH ALL YOUR ARMY, HORSES, AND HORSEMEN, ALL SPLENDIDLY CLOTHED, A GREAT COMPANY WITH BUCKLERS AND SHIELDS, ALL OF THEM HANDLING SWORDS.
5 PERSIA, ETHIOPIA, AND LIBYA ARE WITH THEM, ALL OF THEM WITH SHIELD AND HELMET; 6 GOMER AND ALL ITS TROOPS; THE HOUSE OF TOGARMAH FROM THE FAR NORTH AND ALL ITS TROOPS MANY PEOPLE ARE WITH YOU.
Who are the Ultimate Participants in thsi scenario?
GOG - of the Land of Magog, - Gog may have been a powerful Kingdom in southern Russia. There was also a related entity referred to as "Gog" in some sources and otherwise known as Goguryeo. The Empire of Goguryeo (also called "Goryeo") was located in the northern and central parts of the Korean Peninsula and the southern and central parts of Northeast China. At its peak of power, Goguryeo controlled most of the Korean Peninsula, large parts of Manchuria and parts of eastern Mongolia and Inner Mongolia. It existed from 37 BCE to ca. 668 CE. It may have ruled over Japan. The Japanese as a people according to DNA are related to the Koreans and to natives of Tibet.

MAGOG refers to the Mongolians and related peoples. Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna (Vilna Gaon, 1720-1797) identified Magog with the southern Germans. The northern Germans and Scandinavians he equated with Gomer.
ROSH is Russia.
MESHECH is also Russia and gave its name to Moscow. There was a people named Moschi in western Anatolia in Assyrian times. They are identified with the Phrygians.
TUBAL The researcher HH (who now prefers his name not be mentioned) draws attention to the TEBULIOS Mata Mountain (mentioned by Strabo) in the Caucasus; to TIBILISI in Siberia, and to the city of Tobolsk by the Tobal River east of the Ural Mountains. In Assyrian times in eastern Turkey were the Tibarenei identified with Tubal (the R and the L can interchange).
Classical Commentaries identified Tubal with Spain. In the opinion of HH the mention of Spain possibly refers to the Basques of Northern Spain. The dialect of the Basques is considered similar to that of peoples in the Caucasus.
PERSIA Iran. Persia was always mainly known as Persia until German Nazi diplomats suggested that the Iranians should emphasize their Aryan origins. The Persians therefore switched to Iran which connotes Aryan.
ETHIOPIA - in Hebrew "CUSH" a name also applied to India, as well as, according to Josephus and others, to Central Asia.
LIBYA In Hebrew LUV. In Classical Times Libya was a name applied to Africa in general especially the northern part. It may also apply to Afghanistan. The Afghans have plentiful foundational mythologies. One of them says they descend from North African Berbers brought there in the time of Nebuchadnessar.
GOMER AND ALL ITS TROOPS: This, in the prophjecy of Ezekiel, applies to Germany and in ancient times to the non-Hebraic portion of the Celtic People. GOMER was also the name of the wife of the Prophet Hosea. Their three children were given names representing portions of the lost Ten Tribes in Exile. Historicvally these Exiles confederate with elements from GOMER and moved westward with them Rabbi Yisrael Alter (Beis Yisroel), 1895 - 1977, a Chief Rabbi of Hasidut Gur, wrote that the Children of Israel, were known as Gomer and in the plural as "Gomrim" (i.e. Gomerites). This, he says, especially applies in association with Joseph, i.e. the Ten Tribes, and the Future Redemption of all Israel (Breishit, Parshat VeYechi, 5710 ca. 1950-51, Genesis 47:28).
THE HOUSE OF TOGARMAH FROM THE FAR NORTH - Togarmah was a son of Gomer. They were often equated withTurkey and Turkish-speaking Peoples in Central Asia.
13 SHEBA, DEDAN, THE MERCHANTS OF TARSHISH, AND ALL THEIR YOUNG LIONS.
This refers to Portugal, Spain, and Latin America. They will wish to partake in dividing up the spoil and inheriting some of the wealth of the Israelite Nations if and when Gog and Magog succeed in destroying them.
They WILL SAY TO YOU (i.e. to Gog and Magog), HAVE YOU COME TO TAKE PLUNDER? HAVE YOU GATHERED YOUR ARMY TO TAKE BOOTY, TO CARRY AWAY SILVER AND GOLD, TO TAKE AWAY LIVESTOCK AND GOODS, TO TAKE GREAT PLUNDER?
What relevance to us does all this have?
The Ukrainian-Russia conflict has began to involve most of the nations spoken about in the Prophecy of Ezekiel. Some are on one side and some on the other. They are in opposition to each other BUT the results of such conflict historically often result in unity!
We noticed Cush (India) in the forefront alongside Gog and Magog. Latin nations were in the wings. SHEBA, DEDAN, THE MERCHANTS OF TARSHISH, AND ALL THEIR YOUNG LIONS.
In recent years India has grown closer to Russia and is sympathetic to it.
What Is in Our Interest: India and the Ukraine War
ASHLEY J. TELLIS
New Delhi has adopted a studied public neutrality toward Russia. It has abstained from successive votes in the UN Security Council, General Assembly, and Human Rights Council that condemned Russian aggression in Ukraine and thus far has refused to openly call out Russia as the instigator of the crisis. most Indian strategic elites would admit that their countrys diplomatic neutrality ultimately signifies what one Indian scholar has called a subtle pro-Moscow position.
Both India and Brazil are members of BRICS, G-20, IBSA and G4, and aspire for a permanent seat at the UN Security Council.
BRICS, BRICS is an acronym for five leading emerging economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. All five states are members of the G20.
