Reason why Israel won’t fight Gog and Magog war

Gog and Magog war

In as much as Ezekiel chapter 38 to 39 prophecy is concerned, Israel won't fight any Gog and Magog war. Therefore Messiah from Joseph tribe will not die in the said battle field in order to save Israel from her enemies. No proof!

The prophecy of Ezekiel reveals that Israel will escape this end-time Gog and Magog invading armies just the way she miraculously escaped the Assyrian invading armies in the days of King Hezekiah and Prophet Isaiah( Isaiah chapter 37 to 38)

Thefore the book of Revelation reflects this very Gog and Mago Prophecy to fulfill in a similary manner that the saints and the Holy City known as Jerusalem will also escape the invading armies of Gog and Magog after the 1000 reign of the God's Kingdom.(Revelation chapter 20)

In the days of King Hezekiah of Judah, God spoke through Prophet Isaiah that the Assyrian armies that surrended Jerusalem for invasion will not shoot any arrow but the Lord will trurn them back they way they came. In one night the angel of the Lord went and killed all the Assyrians armies in their camp and became dead bodies. This is how the Lord saved Isreal and Jerusalem.

The prophecy of Ezekiel also indicated that God will drop the bow and arrow from their hands of Gog and Magog arimes and will consume them by raining fire and brimestome when Isreal remains defendless as a city without wall and cannot withstand such a number of armies far greater than the Assyrain armes in case they were to attack Isreal actually but the Lord will defend them just as the way the Lord defened Jerusalem in the days of old. So there must be no victim just as there was no victim in the days of King Hezekiah and Prophet Isaiah.

However, the scripture reveals that God will raise up a prophet from the tribe of Joseph on exile who shall conqurer nations with biblical plagues in the bringing back all the Jews from all nations on exile to Israel; implying that the biblical prophet operating as Moses and Elijah will restore God's Kingdom in all nations making the whole world become one nation as Israel who shall rule over them as King David in a neutral New Jerusalem outside Israel on whose mountain the proposed temple of Ezekiel shall be built prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ from the house of David.(Ezekiel chapter 37)

This forerunner Messiah will not carry armies from Israel to go and fight foreign nations rather will fight foreign nations prophetically as Moses and Elijah did through the prophetic word of God issuing out of his mouth like a two edged sharp-sword sent forth to smite the nations like Prophet Jeremiah of old(Jeremiah chapter 1) and not to be engaged in physical combant with armies of nations rather the armies of heaven spiritually accompanying him(Rev 19:11-end) fight the war for the restoration of God's kingdom on earth because this is God's Kingdom and not the kingdom of men just as the way the armies of God accompanied Moses in Egyp( Psalms 78:43-51) and as the armies of God accompanied Elisha who succeded Elijah when the Syrian armies came to arrest him (2 Kings chapter 6)


Consequently, the suffering Messiah of Joseph known as Jesus Christ will die to save Isreal from their sins and not to fall in the war of Gog and Magog. Both Joseph and Jesus Christ had similar assignemet; Joseph was sold for 20 pieces of silva while the Jesus was sold for 30 pieces of silva.

Joseph brothers morn and wept for him regreating of all the evil they have done to him. Therefore Isreal will also morn and weep for Jesus Christ the Messiah who will regreat of what their fathers have done to him by rejecting him just as the way Joseph was first rejected by his brethren and was sold to Egypt.

Just as Joseph appeared to his brethren for the first and second time so Jesus of Joseph will appear for first and second time. First Joseph told them his dream that he will rule over them as their Messiah being the anointed one so they heated him because of his prophecy and then sold him to Egypt and Joseph was out of their sight for many years.

Jesus of Joseph told the Jews the same dream that he will be the Messiah to rule over them as the Messiah not at that time but for his second coming with the cloud of heaven so they hung him on the cross for blasphemy; who died, buried and resurrected and ascended into heaven privately to the knowledge of his disciples as his only witnesses. So Jews continue to expect a conquering messiah till today and Jesus of Joseph was out of their sight for two thousand years now.

Joseph later re-appeared to his brethren for the second time in glory as the Governor General not only for Egypt but for the whole world when Egypt was the first world power to rule the Earth. So Joseph ruled the world. Similarly, Jesus being the son of Joseph will re-appear to Israel in glory as the true Messiah and the true son of David coming with power and great glory with the clouds of heaven who will show them the mark of the nails on his hand and feet, the piece of his side and his stripes during his second coming. Whenever he appears to me these marks are still there so fresh.

Thomas his Apostle doubted of his resurrection who said that unless he feels his side and palms of the nails before he will believe. So Jesus appeared and said unto him, touch my side and my palm and he torched and before he believed and then said unto him, "blessed are those who do not see and believe" but woe to those who want to see before they believe"(John 20:24-30)

Woe to those Jews who want to see all the evidences about the Messiah before they believe for it will bee too late; this is time to believe or else forget it. Joseph forgave his brothers but he will not forgive those Jews who do not believe until they see his glory as the Messiah coming with the cloud of heaven because he told Thomas. When Joseph brother saw him in his glory in Egypt they all wept shedding tears of regret and repentance. So Isreal will weep of Jesus the Son of Joseph whom they pierced now appearing in glory(Zec 12:9-14 & Rev.1:7) But then the glory has departed from them and sent to Africa in Egypt through Joseph tribe. Therefore the end-time biblical prophet will emerge from Joseph tribe in Africa like the former Joseph of Egypt as prophet Isaiah predicted of the re-occurrence(Isa 19:20) and as Jesus predicted(Mat 21:41-end).

Therefore, those who accknowleged him now as the true Messiah to come with power and great glory like Joseph will start to show sign of repentance through water baptism from the Roman Catholic Priests world wide. Therefore, Prophet Zechariah predicted about the purification of the the house of Isreal through water baptism known as the fountain of water for the purification and sanctification of the whole house of Isreal and as many as those who baptize now recognizing Jesus as the true Messiah , the very son of David will not suffer from his anger on the day he will re-apear in his glory like the Joseph of old(Zec 13:1)


The suffering Messiah is not a descendant of Joseph but of the tribe of Judah. There is no prophecy in the bible that he will die in the battle of Gog and Magog for defending Isreal rather will be rejected and killed by his own people like as Joseph brothers did not outside enemy just as the scribe and pharasis handed him over to the Roman soldiers to be crucifed just for the fact that he claimed to be Son of God and will come with power and great glory from heaven just as Joseph said to his brothers so the High Priest rent his cloth before Pilate saying he had uttered blasphemy that he deserve dead sentences; so he was sentence to dead in agreement with the Jews who said "let his blood be on us and on our children". The High Priest also said that Jesus must die to save Israel from the Roman army invasion when he resurrected Lazarus from the dead(John chapter 11:45-54).

So there are several biblical evidence to prove why he will be regard as as a Son of Joseph instead of the Son of David just for the fact that we will be treated in the same way Joseph of old was treated by his before he appear to them again in glory. Consequently the prophecy about the Rachael weeping for her childen refered to his birth for the fact that Rachael was the mother of Joseph whose son was first of all rejected by his brethren and he later appeared to them in his glory in Egypt. Therefore Jesus of Joseph upon was taken to Egypt first for his refuge like Joseph of old who was taken away from his brothers that wanted to kill him as King Herod did to Jesus when he was born as the King of the Jews who was informed by the three wise men.

Jesus was the son of Joseph by adoption and not as a descendant of Joseph whose name in his Hebrew school will be 'JESUS JOSEPH OR EMMAUEL JOSEPH" since Joseph represent his father although was not his biological son. Jesus was the Lamb of God without blemish to be used for the sacrifice of sin as prophet Isaiah predicted of his arrival as the suffering Messiah(Isa chapter 53); therefore was to be born by a Virgin as Prophet Jeremiah predicted and he became the son of the Virgin Mary(Matthew chapter 1to 2 and Luke chapter 2) whose birth was related to the prophecy of Jeremiah about Rachel weeping for her children as King Hearod killed all the newly born babies on his birth at Bethelem of Judea to fulfill the prophecy.

However, the prophecy of Gog and Magog is already fulfilling in our days which I am going to explain in details in my next article.
