Gog and Cyrus: The Hooks Have Been Placed :: By Vanessa P.

Over the summer, as the surrounding “inner circle” of nations moved closer to Israeli borders, Psalm 83 appeared to be on the horizon. In fact, It looked like we were about to witness the Psalm 83 war way before the Ezekiel 38 war – Gog of  Magog war (Russia).

Several things have happened over the last couple of months that have made me reevaluate where I believe the Gog invasion fits into Bible prophecy.

Could Iran, Turkey and Russia grow emboldened enough to attempt an attack on the heartland of Israel? Moscow just warned Israel against any further air strikes against Syrian defense systems; if they fail to heed the warning, there will be an air strike in central Israel, where tens of thousands of civilians live.

This is more evidence of the cooling relationship between Israel and Russia, or Magog.

“Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, ‘My lord, what shall be the end of these things?’ And he said, ‘Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand’” (Daniel 12:8-10).

As the end draws near, we understand so much more than they did even one hundred years ago.

In 2018, Syrian missiles shot down an Israeli Jet for the first time since 1982, leaving many to question whether Syria was guided by Russian help.

On September 17, Israel carried out air strikes against Iranian and Syrian forces near a Russian air base in Latakia. Syrian regime forces fired back and they accidentally downed a Russian plane. It resulted in the deaths of all 15 Russian service members on board. This was the leading cause of the cooling relationship between Israel and Russia.

President Putin blamed “a chain of tragic accidental circumstances,” but the Russian Defense Ministry said Israel hid its F-16s behind the Russian plane, making it a target for Syria’s anti-aircraft missiles. In response, Moscow delivered S-300 missiles to Syria, putting Israel at further risk.

What military feat could Israel boast of that would make people all over the world take notice and turn to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Destroying Russia in the Golan Heights is certainly one way. Israel defeating Russia would make lesser nations think twice before threatening or attacking Israel again, which could bring a peace treaty to the people in the region. The loudest cries of peace come during war.

“You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes” (Ezekiel 38:16).

With the U.S. withdrawing from Syria, Israel is letting Syria and Iran know that – while the U.S may no longer be involved in the war-torn country – Israel will not let Iran gain a strong military hold in Syria. President Trump, in reality, is leaving Syria to not just Turkey, but also Russia and Iran. Something will embolden these countries or anger them enough into thinking they can overtake Israel. But these forces will fall on the mountains of Israel. And I believe President Trump has withdrawn for reasons unknown to us. But they won’t be unknown for long.

The coming destruction of Damascus could be the match that sets the entire Middle East on Fire. God did say he’d kindle a flame in Damascus. With Assad being allies with Russia and Iran, it’s not hard to see them engaging Israel, and soon it seems.

On New Year’s Eve, the United States military sent out a very odd but also extremely telling tweet:

“#TimesSquare tradition rings in the #NewYear by dropping the big ball … if ever needed, we are #ready to drop something much, much bigger,” the original post read. “Watch to the end! @AFGlobalStrike @Whiteman_AFB #Deterrence #Assurance #CombatReadyForce #PeacelsOurProfession.”

This was a warning to someone, and it most likely was directed towards Iran and Russia.

Russia is a military superpower, second only to the United States. Russia has now officially threatened Israel, militarily.

Recently the US, for the first time, endorsed Israeli control of the Golan Heights by voting against the annual UN resolution that condemns the “occupation” by Israel. But is it really occupation?

The resolution titled, “The occupied Syrian Golan,” was adopted with 151 votes in favor, two against (Israel and the US), and 14 abstentions. The newest resolution condemns Israel for “repressive measures” against Syrian citizens in the Golan Heights. Never mind that the IDF routinely rescues Syrian citizens along the border and provides medical care.

The Jewish settlement in the Golan Heights region ended in 636 AD, after Arab conquest. Then, in the 16th century, the Golan was conquered by the Ottoman Empire, which was then part of the Damascus province until it was taken by the French in 1918. The Ottomans were Turks, not Syrians. When the French mandate ended in 1946, the Golan became part of the newly created Syrian Arab Republic.

Almost immediately, they used it as a launching ground for attacks against the new Jewish State. This began in 1948 and continued for 19 years until the Six-day War. The Golan Heights was recaptured by Israel. It was in 1981 that Israel passed what was called the Golan Heights Law. This annexed The Golan from Syria and extended Israeli laws and jurisdiction to the area.

The short end of the story is that this area belongs to the Jewish people. It was taken from them first. Going by the media, one would assume that the Golan was part of Syria for hundreds of years instead of nineteen.

Following the death of Moses but before the Tribes of Israel entered the Land, the tribes of Menashe, Gad and Reuven had already liberated a land known as Bashan from the Amorites. Bashan is the Golan Heights of today. The Golan Heights was part of biblical Israel, with the Book of Deuteronomy referring to the City of Bashan as a place of refuge. Judah Maccabee is said to have defended Jewish homes in Bashan. There have been ancient Jewish coins from the Bar Kochba era found in the Golan Heights as well.

“And every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world” (1 John 4:3).

Recent discoveries by archeologists have unearthed 34 synagogues in the Golan Heights dating from the Roman era through the Byzantine era and even Arab conquests of Jerusalem. Over time, with the Jewish people exiled, the once flourishing Jewish communities in the Golan were abandoned and forgotten.

It wasn’t until the 15th and 16th centuries that the Druze started to settle the Golan Heights area. Jews began to return to the area as well in 1886 and would remain until 1947. It was Jewish people that were forced out by the Syrians, not the other way around. What’s more, the Golan Heights was supposed to be included as part of the Palestine Mandate, which created a national home for the Jewish people.

There is nothing but lies and deceit from the UN when it comes to Israel. It is the spirit of Antichrist that has a dark cloud over the organization. They have introduced resolution after resolution against Israel, but not one against terrorist organizations. They believe the lie and attempt to pass the lie off as fact.

“And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thess 2:11).

Israel keeping control of the Golan Heights is absolutely necessary to her security, so what does that tell you? The Globalist, Luciferian powers in this world that Jesus warned us of don’t want Israel to be safe or secure. In fact, if Israel were to be destroyed tomorrow, nobody in the UN would bat an eye.

“Mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: The enemy said of you, ‘Aha!  The ancient heights have become our possession.’… I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; … I will cause many people to live on you — yes, all of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt’” (Ezekiel 36:1-2, 9-10).

Recently PM Netanyahu spoke to his cabinet by saying “It is time that the international community recognized reality… Whatever happens on the other side of the border, the border itself will not move. Secondly, after 50 years it is time that the international community realized that the Golan will remain under Israeli sovereignty.”

He went on to say that The Golan was an “integral part of the Land of Israel in ancient times… and the Golan is an integral part of the State of Israel in the present time.”

“Thus saith Hashem to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him, and to loose the loins of kings; to open the doors before him, and that the gates may not be shut” (Isaiah 45:1).

On January 21, 2019, the Americas, parts of Western Europe and Western Africa will witness a super-wolf blood moon with an eclipse. This eclipse is only going to be fully visible to WESTERN nations. That also marks the date for the halfway point of President Trump’s presidency. What’s interesting about the night Trump was born? He was born June 14, 1946, within fifteen minutes of a total lunar eclipse and 700 days before the state of Israel was born.

He was sworn in as President on January 20, 2017, when he was 70 years old, seven months and seven days. He was also sworn in during Israel’s double Jubilee year, marking seventy years since their founding, and fifty years since recapturing Jerusalem. God has always used the sun, moon and stars along with numbers to speak to His people. So what’s He telling us with Trump? For one, the name TRUMP is biblical, according to Rabbi and Bible Codes expert, Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson.

Gematria, or Hebrew numerology, is an esoteric device used by rabbis for revealing hidden meaning in the Bible. According to Rabbi Glazerson, “Anybody who helps Israel, to build themselves, to settle properly in their land,” is referred to as a kind of Moshiach.

Wouldn’t something as enormous as tiny Israel defeating an invading Russian alliance cause the Palestinians to take notice? Peace deal anyone? Acknowledge Israel has ties to Jerusalem? Sure thing. FOR NOW.

The Temple will be rebuilt next to the mosque as an international symbol of “peace.”

Revelation 11:2 “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles.”

For three and a half years, the surrounding Islamic nations regroup. They devise a plan to make all of Israel their own. The sudden invasion comes so quickly that even Jesus warned the Jews living in Judea and Samaria to run for their lives and don’t look back. The obvious place to run will be towards Jordan. The Bible tells us that Jordan will act wickedly against the covenant, though, leaving Jordan to escape the Antichrist’s wrath.  The covenant is the Abrahamic covenant in which God gave Israel to the Jewish people.

The Jews will worship God in the temple, right next to abominations against Him, like the Al-Aqua mosque. God Himself stood on the mountain of the Temple Mount; it’s His.

“And the glory of the Lord went up from the midst of the city and stood on the mountain, which is on the east side of the city.”

Daniel 11:41 “He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon.”

Jordan is to Ammon and Edom what Israel is to Jacob. The Jordanian/Palestinian people have no closer relation in the Middle East than Israel. They are ancient brothers dating back to Esau and Jacob. When the Antichrist floods Jerusalem and the people are running away in desperation and fear, Jordan will block them. Jordan will turn his own brother over to the Antichrist. God warns them that His judgment is coming because of what they did.

“For violence against your brother Jacob, Shame shall cover you, And you shall be cut off forever. In the day that you stood on the other side—In the day that strangers carried captive his forces, When foreigners entered his gates And cast lots for Jerusalem—Even you were as one of them” (Obadiah 1:10-11).

Judea and Samaria are located in modern-day East Jerusalem, where the Temple Mount is located. When the Jewish people are invaded in Jerusalem, it will be sudden. There will be tens of thousands of Jews living in and worshipping in this area. The temple will have been rebuilt; the Muslims and Jews will have worshipped alongside one another for three and a half years before the sudden change towards the Jewish people.

“In the day of their calamity. You should not have stood at the crossroads To cut off those among them who escaped; Nor should you have delivered up those among them who remained In the day of distress” (Obadiah 1:14).

The Jordanian people escape because they “do wickedly against the covenant.”

“So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant” (Daniel 11:30b).

“Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery…” (Daniel 11:32).

With Russia warning against any further attacks on Syrian defense systems, and Syria becoming the meeting ground for anti-Israeli military forces, it won’t be long before The IDF and IAF launch more strikes into Syria.

“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken; They will be for flocks Which lie down, and no one will make them afraid. The fortress also will cease from Ephraim, The kingdom from Damascus, And the remnant of Syria…” (Isaiah 17:1-3)).

Ephraim, one of the twelve tribes, originally settled in Samaria, which was ancient Ephraim. Aroer is believed to be in Jordan. The Bible says these cities are “forsaken.” The Hebrew word used for forsaken is azab, and means abandoned, withdrawn, left behind, released, or neglected. The people fleeing would leave these cities abandoned.

The destruction of Damascus will probably spill over into northern Jordan, with a prophetic connection to Jeremiah 49:1-2. This seems to suggest it is Israel that is responsible for the destruction of Damascus.

Read Jeremiah 49:1-2 below.

“Against the Ammonites. Thus says the Lord: ‘Has Israel no sons? Has he no heir? Why then does Milcom inherit Gad, And his people dwell in its cities? Therefore behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘That I will cause to be heard an alarm of war In Rabbah of the Ammonites; It shall be a desolate mound, And her villages shall be burned with fire. Then Israel shall take possession of his inheritance,’ says the Lord.”

God is basically saying Jordan took land from Israel that they had no right to take, and Israel is taking it back.

The Gog coalition in Ezekiel never reaches Jerusalem. The Bible tells us these forces will fall on the mountains of Israel, while the Antichrist spoken of in Daniel DOES reach Jerusalem. God will not forsake Israel, but He is angry.

“I have raised him up in righteousness, And I will direct all his ways; He shall build My city And let My exiles go free, Not for price nor reward,’ Says the Lord of hosts” (Isaiah 45:13).

“The man who executes My counsel, from a far country. Indeed I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will also do it’” (Isaiah 46:11b).

I have felt that God’s hand has been placed over President Trump. Trump was who this country needed, a tough New York businessman who doesn’t bow to the Globalists and establishment. If God’s hand wasn’t on Him, I don’t believe He would have made it this far. There’s always a chance I can be wrong, but I strongly feel Donald Trump will serve out his full term and win re-election. He has derailed the globalism of the US that Obama signed us up for. He’s trying to secure our border, without help from the Democrats.

A lesser man would have thrown in the towel by now. He was rich, well-liked and respected in many circles, by many people, before he ran against Hillary Clinton. The Clinton’s have a history of destroying people’s lives.

“When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice (for the Lord your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them” (Deut 4:30-31).

The Bible warns us of a ten-nation alliance that forms in Europe. There was a ten-nation alliance officially formed in the last month. Finland has joined Germany, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Estonia, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal in the French-led initiative. But, is this THE ten-nation alliance foretold?

God has told us to watch the sky for signs from him.

The new year of 2019 will be one heck of an astronomical year; 2018 was as well. There are eclipses, a huge meteor shower, and then a rare planet transition coming this year – oh, and a super wolf blood moon.

In 2018, the US experienced a solar eclipse that only America could see. Seems God is telling the West something. Which nation is the largest Christian nation? The UNITED STATES. Where are people praying in the name of Christ the most? Western nations. What’s interesting is that just seven years later, in 2024, this same event happens again.

“Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth’; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also” (Gen 1:14-16).

Joel also warns us of coming blood moons and solar eclipses. These events have been happening on a much bigger scale than ever before.

“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved…” (Joel 2:30-32).

Jesus prophesied these amazing signs in the heavens too.

“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:25-28).

So Jesus is warning us of His coming return and gave us signs that will appear when we are near. The Bible foretold the Russian alliance; and right now Russia, Turkey, Syria and Iran are on Israel’s border. What’s the real reason President Trump withdrew our troops from Syria? Are we planning a massive attack on Iran? The Bible foretold of Iran’s (formerly Persia) coming destruction too.

He also warned us of the sea and waves, which represent Hurricanes and Tsunamis. He said the nations of the Earth will be perplexed. The KJV definition of perplexed is “To make intricate; to involve; to entangle; to make complicated and difficult to be understood or unraveled.”

The eclipse date of the 21st has a biblical meaning. Twenty-one symbolizes wickedness lawlessness, and sin in Hebrew numerology.

A New Moon Celebration in Hebrew is “Rosh Chodesh,” and it means “beginning, head, or renewal.”

The number eight in Hebrew numerology represents a new beginning; adding 13 to it means wickedness or sin; together 21 (or January 21) represents a new beginning of sin and wickedness.

Last year, in the Middle East, they experienced a super blue-moon eclipse on the Jewish holiday of Tu B’shevat. This ended up being a blessing on Israel, as Jerusalem was officially recognized by the world’s leading superpower, giving the Jews credibility with Jerusalem belonging to the Jewish people.

The blood moon eclipse coming to the West also falls on Tu B’shevat. Coincidence? I think not. The celebration of Tu B’shevat is known as the “celebration of trees.” It’s a time of new beginning.

Leading Rabbis described prophecies from Jewish sources indicating an end to the dominance Ishmael—Muslims have over the Temple Mount. That dominance will wane with a sharing arrangement.

The super blood moon on January 21, 2019, was described by Rabbi Genut as a time of judgment.

“There will be a marked increase in earthquakes and volcanoes, even more than we have seen in the past year,” Rabbi Genuth said. “Just as the eclipse is a conflict between the sun and the moon to rule over the heavens, there will be a similar conflict on earth. This will begin a time when governments are in balance. Some governments that seem powerful right now will fall and others will rise in their place.”

The complete solar eclipse that crossed the United States in August 2018 brought us the most devastating hurricane season in US history.

The Talmud teaches that lunar eclipses are a bad omen for Israel because they are spiritually represented by the moon and the Hebrew calendar; they also follow lunar cycles as we follow the solar cycle. If a lunar eclipse appears red, then the Talmud says it is an omen that wars are on the horizon.

Rabbi Yosef Berger said this lunar eclipse will not affect Israel, but will affect her enemies. A full moon is not a bad omen, though. The super moon eclipse over the West will not be visible from Jerusalem.

At least five (if not more) major events in the Bible occurred on, or near, full moons including the crucifixion of Jesus.

The earth has been experiencing an enormous jump in the number of earthquakes and tsunamis around the world. We were warned of all these signs. Is the US going to be blessed as Israel was, or are we going to be cursed? Only time will tell.

Leading Rabbis have referred to Trump as a modern-day Cyrus the Great, who let the Jews rebuild their temple.

“Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, ‘The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you of all his people, may the LORD his God be with him. Let him go up”’ (2 Chronicles 36:23).

In the coming peace deal, I have a very good feeling that the construction of a newly built Temple will be included. This has never been proposed before, but Trump is the man to do it. The man is doing God’s will, though he may not even know it. The prayer surrounding our president is enormous. Leading pastors have placed hands on him and prayed, and Pastor Brunson placed hands on him and prayed. We as Christians pray for him and our country daily.

President Trump isn’t a perfect man, but he’s not what the Democrats have tried to make him out to be. With his imperfections and all, God chose him to officially recognize Jerusalem before the world and to build his temple, just as Cyrus did.

King Cyrus helped the Jews to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem under Zerubbabel and Joshua the high priest. He restored all of the temple treasures and even paid for the rebuilding out of the royal treasury. Cyrus’s decree helped the temple worship to be restored after 70 years of the Jews’ captivity.

Israel has never had a greater friend than President Trump and the US, and we will continue to be friends.

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases” (Proverbs 21:1).

The Jewish people and Christians across the world have a bond together through God. He said He will join us together as one in the last days.

“Thus says the Lord God: ‘Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand’” (Ezekiel 37:19).

Ephraim represents the West, and Judah represents the Jews. We will worship together, as one people, united as brothers and sisters in Christ.

The hooks have been placed into Russia’s jaw, but the US will never sit back and allow an attack on Israel. Not with Donald Trump in office. The question is, are the nations in the Gog alliance going to be lead out by those hooks before the peace deal is revealed? These nations view the US withdrawal as giving in, but there’s no way our president would ever leave Israel alone. The US has nourished Israel for seventy years, just as the Bible prophesied.

“But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent” (Rev 12:14).

The US is undoubtedly known internationally by the eagle, and we will protect and fight with Israel.

Of that I have no doubt. For the next two years, the Democrats will do everything in their power to impeach our president, but it will not happen. He needs your prayers; Israel needs your prayers. There is another Great War on the horizon, and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is returning soon. It’s time for God’s people to be spiritually ready. Are you ready to meet your maker? Because we are not guaranteed tomorrow!

Ezekiel 37:15-17 “Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘As for you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and for the children of Israel, his companions.’ Then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ Then join them one to another for yourself into one stick, and they will become one in your hand.”

Genesis 48:13-16 “And Joseph took them both, Ephraim with his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh with his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near him. Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn. And he blessed Joseph, and said: ‘God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has fed me all my life long to this day, The Angel who has redeemed me from all evil, Bless the lads; Let my name be named upon them, And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; And let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.’”
