And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.(Ezekiel 38:1-6)
The World’s final conflict is heating up. Ezekiel saw it in the form of a huge coalition of Islamic nations joining forces to plunder and spoil the newly reborn nation of Israel.
These nations have Islam in common. Islam insists that the “last day cannot come until the Muslims rise up and slaughter the Jews”. Wrap your mind around it…It is a tenet of the World’s largest religion that Israel must be annihilated before the end can come.
Another thing these nations have in common is the rapid, horrifying, monstrous transformation they have undergone in recent history, (the last forty years). We have shown how Turkey has morphed from a modern, secular state, back into the Islamic superstate that once menaced the World.
I had a friend in the late 1970s who was an Iranian student studying at Iowa State University. My Mother knew no stranger, so she allowed him to stay with us in the summer of 1978. The Iran he came from was pro Israel, Pro USA, and a western friendly Nation, until Jimmy Carter pulled the rug out from underneath the Shah. Since then Iran has been transformed into the Terror exporting, Shariah enforcing prison that she has become.
Ethiopia (Cush), also will be in the Invasion. Biblical Ethiopia was all of the land South of the Nile, and would include what we know of as the Sudan, Somalia and parts of Abbyssinia (Modern Ethiopia). this region also is heavily influenced by Islam.
Sudan has suffered three debilitating Civil Wars between the Arab dominated North and the Tribal, Christian South, and has been in a chronic state of insurgency. The First Civil War occurred from 1955 to 1972, the second broke out in 1983 to the year 2003, and again in 2011 a civil war broke out which lasts to this day.
The state of constant warfare in Sudan has a very complex set of reasons; Tribal, Religious, Economic, cultural
More than a million people are said to have been killed in these wars, and the nation has fractured. Eventually the nation of South Sudan was formed in 2011, and it is in a state of continuous war up to this time.
Somalia is a failed State, which hasn’t had a functioning, consistent government in years. The nation has required intervention from Islamist takeover from the Ethiopian Army and the African Union, but most governmental systems are so collapsed, that people have resorted to traditional methods of order, including Shariah, civil and religious law. Somalia is a devoutly Muslim nation.
Libya, like Turkey was long considered to be a successful Muslim nation, under the late Muamir Qaddafi. As A Global Research article reports,
Prof. Garikai Chengu a scholar of Middle East affairs at Harvard University wrote:
“In 1967, Colonel Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; however, by the time he was assassinated, Gaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy on the African continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands…”
Under Gaddafi’s leadership every Libyan citizen was entitled to a share of oil revenue, low interest loans for houses, Health care , grants for each child, Education. Women were given equal rights that would be unheard of in most Muslim nations. from the above article again
For over 40 years, Gaddafi promoted economic democracy and used the nationalized oil wealth to sustain progressive social welfare programs for all Libyans. Under Gaddafi’s rule, Libyans enjoyed not only free health-care and free education, but also free electricity and interest-free loans. Now thanks to NATO’s intervention the health-care sector is on the verge of collapse as thousands of Filipino health workers flee the country, institutions of higher education across the East of the country are shut down, and black outs are a common occurrence in once thriving Tripoli.
One group that has suffered immensely from NATO’s bombing campaign is the nation’s women. Unlike many other Arab nations, women in Gaddafi’s Libya had the right to education, hold jobs, divorce, hold property and have an income. The United Nations Human Rights Council praised Gaddafi for his promotion of women’s rights.ibid
Now, thanks to NATO’s bombing campaign against the reign of Gaddafi, Libya is a corpse. A balkanized mess of competing Savage Militias, Islamist Feifdoms, a ruined economy, a fractured and spoiled health care system, it is a nightmare for women, due to various strains of Islamist attempts at Shariah.
The fall of Gaddafi’s administration has created all of the country’s worst-case scenarios: Western embassies have all left, the South of the country has become a haven for terrorists, and the Northern coast a center of migrant trafficking. Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia have all closed their borders with Libya. This all occurs amidst a backdrop of widespread rape, assassinations and torture that complete the picture of a state that is failed to the bone.ibid
Since our western intervention, Libya is in a continuous state of civil war, with three major foreign armies within it vying for power over the wrecked nation, and it is also a place of proxy war, as Turkey and Egypt pour money and mercenaries into the dying corpse of the nation, in order to establish their own upper hand.
This is the sad transformation of what was once one of the most benevolent nations (to its own citizens and guests) in the Muslim world.
Do you remember Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s famous boasting, quote, “We came, we saw, we Killed Him!”, speaking of Gaddafi?
Gaddafi gave the west an ominous warning as He pled for his life on National TV, to the effect that if NATO killed him, Libya would collapse and the last barrier to the Tsunami wave of desperate African Immigration would flow into Europe and destroy it.
“”Now listen you, people of NATO. You’re bombing a wall which stood in the way of African migration to Europe, and in the way of Al-Qaeda terrorists. This wall was Libya. You‘re breaking it. You’re idiots, and you will burn in Hell for thousands of migrants from Africa and for supporting Al-Qaeda. It will be so. I never lie. And I do not lie now,” said Gaddafi in an open letter obtained by the Russian daily Zavtra and published in May 2011 several months before the Lybian leader was killed.”
Western backed Mercenaries from Somalia, Chad and Sudan tortured and murdered Gaddafi in the streets of Libya and the Chaos which has followed opens Libya up to it’s own participation in the great Invasion, as Turkey, Iran, Russia and other entities train thousands of Libyans in the only work presently available, Military mercenaries.
Three years ago, NATO declared that the mission in Libya had been “one of the most successful in NATO history.” Truth is, Western interventions have produced nothing but colossal failures in Libya, Iraq, and Syria. Lest we forget, prior to western military involvement in these three nations, they were the most modern and secular states in the Middle East and North Africa with the highest regional women’s rights and standards of living.ibid
God’s purpose in Prophecy will be worked out, but the West, including the United States , is guilty of great and profound atrocity.
