THE ATTACK OF GOG OF MAGOG, AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF GOD, HAS BEGUN (Part 7)
THE LAST ASSAULT OF GOG OF MAGOG AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF GOD
Currently, the world Christian congregation represents the spiritual Israel of God: “As for all those who walk orderly by this rule of conduct, peace and mercy be upon them, yes, upon the Israel of God” (Galatians 6:16). In the prophecy of Ezekiel, “the mountains of Israel” of the people of God are places of worship, congregations, where all Christians are spiritually fed. Therefore, the “mountains of Israel” represent at the same time, the “top (or the high part) of the earth”, where the current people of God is, mentioned in Ezekiel 38:12. The “mountains of Israel” and the “top of the earth” represent the places of worship to Jehovah (Compare Ezekiel 38:12 and 39:2–4 to see the equivalence of the two expressions).
The prophetic narrative of Ezekiel 38 and 39, is that of the last assault of Gog of Magog provoked indirectly, this time, by the will of God with the intention, to hold an accounting against this wicked king and to destroy him, during the great tribulation: “I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in splendor, a vast assembly with large shields and bucklers, all of them wielding swords” (Ezekiel 38: 4). The attack of Gog of Magog is on the “mountains of Israel”, in the most visible parts, of the people of God, their places of worship, organized like “the land of unprotected settlements” and in “settlements unprotected by walls, bars, or gates” (Ezekiel 38:11). Gog of Magog rises against the mountains of Israel, confiscating all property by “looting” the members of the people of God (Ezekiel 38:12).
