There are two elements of the discussion about Gog and Magog that have suddenly become clearer to me, bringing this prophecy into closer focus. First, the great army described in Ezekiel 38 and Ezekiel 39 list two participants that have puzzled me, until now: Libya and Northern Sudan – but NOT Egypt. Second, Prince Bandar, the chief of Saudi Arabian intelligence, threatened Vladimir Putin that he would organize a terrorist attack during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, if Russia didn’t back off in their support for Assad in Syria.
Let’s take that second one first, because it’s HUGE…
On Tuesday, July 30, 2013, Prince Bandar bin Sultan secretly traveled to Moscow to meet with Russian President Putin and did something shocking. He threatened Putin with a terrorist attack if he didn’t stop supporting the Assad regime in Syria. The idea of threatening the president of Russia who just happens to be a former KGB officer is beyond incredible.

Now, Prince Bandar started off the meeting, using sweeteners such as oil and gas deals, but Russia had no need for oil and gas. As a part of that discussion, Bandar made a point to say that a military intervention was absolutely necessary.
The talks failed, and just 22 days after the meeting, a poison gas ‘attack’ occurred in the Ghouta suburb of Damascus, Syria – on August 21st. Does that timing maybe sound a little… convenient?
But, here’s the point that connects to the coming of Gog and Magog: Putin ordered a massive strike against Saudi Arabia if the US and her allies attacked Syria. Does THAT maybe indicate to you why Obama might have backed down on a strike against Syria?
Doesn’t that also tell you how willing Russia is to engage in military operations in the Middle East?
Furthermore, what do you think would happen if there is a terrorist attack during the Sochi winter Olympics this February?
Doesn’t that bring Gog and Magog into closer focus?
Oh, and here’s a tangential thought. Now that the Saudis have admitted that they fund and control the Chechen jihadist rebels…
If the Boston Marathon bombing was an attack by two Chechen jihadist rebels, who ordered these ‘rebels’ to bomb the marathon?
Hmmmm… makes you think.
But wait, there’s more…
Yesterday, I stumbled upon this map:
Did you notice that green area East and North of Iran?
Yeah, THAT is why the Saudis have control of the Chechen rebels. And, Bandar’s threat means that the Russians have all the confirmation that they need to blame Saudi Arabia for every problem that they’ve had with the Chechens since 1991. You can only imagine how angry Putin must have been.
Notice the more blue-green area that covers most of North Africa on the map. That is the area dominated by Maliki Islam, a version of Sunni Islam. That area encompasses two of the key players that have always puzzled me: Libya and Sudan. I’ve always wondered why they were included, while Egypt was not.
Well, I think that we have a clue. They observe a different form of Islam than Egypt and the other nations of the Middle East.
Now, I want to say that this is not a strong argument. Maliki Islam really isn’t that much different than the rest of Sunni Islam. So, for me to make a case based just on this would be silly. But, subtle differences can be important if they continue over a period of centuries.
This Means Prepare – NOW
These two elements that I’ve described above, Saudi Meddling and Maliki Islam, should help you see that the coming of Gog and Magog is not something hypothetical. This isn’t theory. This is reality, and you need to get ready for it.
