BIN: American troops are en route to Lebanon to take their place in an unlikely alliance with terror group Hezbollah and the regime of Syrian President Bashar al Assad in a development that one prominent rabbi and a noted expert on Middle Eastern politics agree could be the final stage preceding the War of Gog and Magog.
On Thursday, Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon acknowledged that, following a request from Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to President Donald Trump, US special forces would be providing training and support to the Lebanese Armed Forces.
The only problem: Lebanon has recently begun coordinating its military efforts with Hezbollah and Syrian troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar al Assad in order to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) and its allies.
“The prophets wrote that the War of Gog and Magog will be entirely inexplicable,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News. “Since it is a war that is the result of Divine intervention, it will not make political sense, historical sense, or follow the laws of nature.” more …
Opinion: The rabbi makes some interesting points. Gog and Magog will be a turning point in human history. Picture in your mind headlines announcing that a massive surprise attack has been launched against Israel from the north and south.
“ISRAEL HAS BEEN ATTACKED, HEAVILY ARMED FORCES ARE MOVING IN FROM EVERY DIRECTION”
Imagine the chaos as the news media try to determine what nation is leading the charge and what the motive is. Imagine how hopeless it will look for the tiny nation who will not have had a chance to unleash its nuclear might before becoming overwhelmed.
“ISRAEL IS OVERWHELMED AND NO NATION APPEARS WILLING TO HELP”
“Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?” Ezekiel 38:13
And imagine the astonishment when it is discovered that the enemy forces are destroying themselves in total confusion:
“IN A MONUMENTAL TURN OF EVENTS THE ATTACKING FORCES APPEAR TO BE LOSING”
“I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.” Ezekiel 38:21-22
This victory will be so colossal that the Six Day War of 1967 will pale in comparison:
“INVADING ARMIES ARE FALLING LIKE DEAD MEN”
“You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.” Ezekiel 39:4-5
At the end of this war there will be no doubt in the mind of the Jewish people that Jehovah God won the victory: “So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward.” Ezekiel 39:22
“JEWS ARE FLOODING THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN AN OUTPOURING OF FASTING AND PRAYER”
God’s elect return to Him in covenant relationship:
“Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer. And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,’ says the Lord God.” Ezekiel 39:28-29
And then it will be time for a new temple and a peace treaty, Daniel 9:27.
