Where is Magog?

Turkey is preparing for war and is gathering allies to do so. And, this growing alliance appears suspiciously close to that of the Gog and Magog alliance.

Is Turkey the Land of Magog?

It’s actually hard to say. And, I find that difficulty to be very interesting. It’s as if God were providing us with a test – a test of our willingness to love the Truth, instead of our own intellect. And, I am finding a LOT of ‘self love’ among the intellectuals making spurious claim after spurious claim about Magog.

So, let’s look at that for a bit.

Where is Magog?

Identifying the location of the land of the people who descended from Magog is important.


Because a great alliance will be formed, and will descend upon the Land of Israel, to try and destroy Israel. That ‘grand alliance’ is described in Ezekiel 38 and 39.

Two chapters.

One event.

My hope is that you get that, because I am disheartened at the foolishness of so many who choose to not ‘get it’. And, speaking of foolishness…

…this is NOT the Gog and Magog of Revelation!

If you believe that the events of Ezekiel 38 and 39 are the same as that of Revelation 20, you need your head examined. And, I see far too many people who claim this connection.

What happens immediately after the Gog and Magog in Ezekiel?

The children of Jacob in the Land of Israel accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. There is a seven year clean-up of all the destroyed military equipment. We suffer the fire that descends upon the Earth – something that I have called Ezekiel’s Fire.

What happens immediately after the Gog and Magog of Revelation?

The world is burned up. Those who were not in the First Resurrection are resurrected. We have the Great White Throne Judgment, followed by a new heaven and a new Earth.

Do those two things sound similar?


Good. You don’t need your head examined, and that’s a big relief. Examining heads is time consuming and unpleasant.

The problem is about this fire that Ezekiel talks about. And, it’s the reason why I wrote my book:


If you get this ‘Gog and Magog’ thing wrong, you will probably die. And, if you don’t die, you will wish that you had. I hope that I’m wrong, but I have yet to see anyone prove me wrong.

You will get high praise from me, if you prove me wrong. Seriously. I kid you not. I am horrified by what is coming, and I prefer to be un-horrified.

So, un-horrify me… if you can.

So, when we see events coalesce – or gather around – a certain figure and a certain nation… and …if that figure and nation seems to share some of the characteristics of Gog and Magog… well …we would do well to look hard at that figure and nation.

The person that I refer to is Recep Tayyip Erdogan. I call him:

Oink Erdogan, the ugliest man in Anatolia County

(Raise your hand if you know which song that I’m referring to.)

Oink is a foul, evil and ridiculous man, who leads a foul, evil and ridiculous country – Turkey. And yes, I mean all of that.

Please remember that Turkey – when it was called the Ottoman Empire – murdered about two million Christians a century ago. And, they refuse to admit that they did that, or that there was anything wrong with it. And, you will go to jail, in Turkey, if you dare to criticize Turkey for it.

I am referring to:

Armenian Genocide

Assyrian Christian Genocide

Greek Christian Genocide

I want Turkey to either repent of what they have done and seek to make amends, or I want them punished for it. Since I doubt that Turkey will repent, I want her to be punished. And, the thought that this punishment will occur during the coming of Gog and Magog is interesting.

So, is Turkey the Land of Magog?

Well, let me start by talking about what Magog is NOT:

Lydia is NOT Magog.

When I discovered why certain historians made the connection between Lydia and Magog… I was horrified. Just because there was a king of Lydia that had the letter ‘g’ twice in his name… MEANS NOTHING!!!!


I get so tired of idiots that I could scream. Really. In fact, I often DO scream, to the consternation of Mrs. Little – although, she is getting more and more used to my screaming, yelling and waving of hands. Having said that, I usually just groan when people are so absurdly ignorant.

Who is Magog?

And yes, it’s a ‘who’ and not a ‘what’.

Magog is mentioned here:

1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

 – Genesis 10:1-5

That’s right. Magog is a son of Japheth – or יֶ֔פֶת. That’s Yefet, and that name means: beautiful. If something is pretty or beautiful, it is yephei or yephat – depending on gender. And, since the descendants of Japheth were all ‘white guys’, I find myself a little confused.

I find my own, over-pale, coloring to be rather ridiculous. It’s only useful for northern climates, and it burns really, really easily. My wife’s coloring is much more appropriate and MUCH more attractive. MUCH.


Now, where was I… ah yes. Magog. Notice his brothers.

How many of them are in this Gog and Magog coalition?

Gomer, Tubal and Meshech – and maybe ‘Madai’ which may/may-not be the Medes and a part of Persia.

Who are NOT?

Javan and Tiras.

This means that a HUGE part of the Euro-Asian people are going to descend upon Israel. Only Javan (Greeks) and Tiras (whoever they are) will not.

Does this tell us where Magog is?

Not really. What it tells us is that we have a GIGANTIC area to include Magog in. And, anyone who fits within that area and has a good relationship with Iran (Persia) is a candidate.

Up to the previous few years, Turkey was out of the question because of their antipathy for Iran. That left us with the only other country with influence: Russia.

Can we say that Russia is NOT the Land of Magog?

No. It is still a candidate. In fact, no matter how you interpret the term ‘rosh nasi’ – the Hebrew for ‘chief prince’ in Ezekiel 38:2, Russia seems to be there. Russia certainly seems to be playing the role of ‘chief prince’. And, if you follow my own interpretation, Russia is definitely there.

The Hebrew grammar is not correct for ‘chief prince’. The way that it is written seems to indicate that Rosh is a name. Furthermore, ‘nasi’ or ‘nah-see’ is already as chief as you can get. Nasi MEANS ‘chief prince’. And, the Rus – or Rosh – are a pretty ancient people.

Furthermore, Rus and Rosh would be pretty interchangeable in Hebrew. And, if I’m right, Russia is there – either way.

But, is Turkey the Land of Magog?

No one knows. And, that’s the interesting thing, since Ezekiel 38 and 39 were written to US – you and me.

That’s right, WE are the intended recipients of those two chapters, and God knew that we would be uncertain about where the Land of Magog was. Therefore, we are stuck with looking at the pattern of events and comparing them with what Ezekiel and others say.

Of course, that has always been the case, so I guess that we shouldn’t worry too much over this. The pattern will be clear, once it manifests itself. And, I see it beginning to ‘manifest’.

Please. Keep a careful eye on Turkey. Trouble is brewing there, the kind of trouble that leads to Ezekiel’s Fire and unimaginable suffering and death.
