In just the past week Erdogan has done the following:
• fired 20,000 teachers
• placed 20,000 “plotters” in prison
• jailed 115 generals and admirals
• placed 15,000 soldiers in prison
• fired 3,000 judges (1/3 of all judges in Turkey)
• fired 10,000 police officers
• fired 500 staff from Directorate of Religious Affairs
• closed thousands of schools and charities for not being sufficiently “Islamic”
Erdogan is the first person to fulfill three Biblical “Gog” traits simultaneously: 1) born in the capital of the eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium-Istanbul), 2) his family is originally from the people of Meshek and Tubal (the Caucasus between the Black and Caspian Seas–this includes Georgia), and 3) now has taken full control of Gomer and Beth Togarmah (Turkey). His family tree is likely also from the land of Magog as well since the people of Magog overlap into the Caucasus.
In the end times there are two final wars in Israel that are often confused for the same conflict–but are most likely different. They can be thought of more as an ongoing process. Much like World War II was a continuation of unresolved issues left over from World War I. The Islamic leader is “Gog”.
Gog is killed in the first war, yet the world is “astonished” when the fatal wound seems healed.
The first war is with Gog as the leader and Persia plus other Islamic nations invasion of Israel as described in Ezekiel 38-39. The final Gog war, which is ended only by the return of Christ, is described in Zechariah 12 and 14 and also in Revelation 16 and 20. The second war enters into Jerusalem directly. The first Gog war is after the rapture and somewhat near to the start of the seven year tribulation, and the second one is both during the tribulation and also ends the tribulation. In both wars a leader called “Gog” is involved. Yet Gog is killed in the first war. These two wars can be called “Gog War 1” and “Gog War 2.” They will be at least seven or more years apart.
