Gog and Magog vs. Israel?
Turkey and Russia recently reached an agreement for the sale and installation of a Russian S-400 missile defense system. From a news update on August 25 in Debka File:
Turkey and Russia have reached agreement on the sale of Russian S-400 missile defense systems to Ankara, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Friday. … Defending Turkey as a NATO country buying arms from Russia, Yildirim said his country was working with Russia and Iran in Syria…
Also from an earlier article in Business Insider:
Turkey reached an agreement with Russia to purchase the latter’s most sophisticated missile-defense system, the S-400, a senior Turkish military official told Bloomberg last week.
Under the $2.5 billion agreement Ankara would receive two batteries of the antiaircraft missile from Moscow within the coming year and then produce two more batteries in Turkey.
At the beginning of June, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow was ready to deliver the missile system, and a Russian military-industry official said an agreement on technical details had been reached in mid-June.
Response: I believe that this missile agreement has major implications for the alignment of the nations potentially participating in an Ezekiel 38-39 scenario: Gog and Magog vs. Israel. This development is important because Turkey and Russia are the modern equivalents of a number of the major nations allied against Israel in the prophecy. Now Turkey and Russia are increasingly becoming closer and with this agreement Turkey’s position in NATO and as a close ally of the United States is in question and on the decline.
Note that in the Debka news update that Turkey PM Yildirim said his country was ‘working with Russia and Iran in Syria’ –all 4 are major pieces in the scenario puzzle that have refused to come together until now. In the past Russia and turkey have fought against each other in at least 12 wars and were on opposite sides during the ‘Cold War’ with Turkey as a member of NATO. Also, Turkey and Iran have always been rivals in the past, both represent different major factions in Islam- Sunni (Turkey) and Shia (Iran), with each hoping to become the dominant power and headquarters for a new Islamic Caliphate.
Now Putin of Russia seems to be in the process of bringing these usual rivals all together in the war against ISIS in Syria. So the nations that are listed in the Ezekiel 38-39 attack against Israel are beginning to come together for the first time in history. —>
