There is an internet filled with ‘secret knowledge’ that President Barack Obama is Gog and we have become the Arab nation Magog. Well, there is a problem with the time line. (If you are a Preterist, this will not bother you.)
We find Gog and Magog mentioned twice in Scripture, both in prophetic terms. Do you really think that they are two different people or the same person in two different time frames? The purpose of this study is not to set out who Gog and what Magog is, but to show that the timeline does not fit President Barack Obama and the United States.
From Scripture, we read,
Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, “Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. (Ezekiel 38:1-3 NKJV)
Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
(Revelation 20:7-10 NKJV)
Ezekiel 38 and 39 concerns Gog’s war against the People of God. John sets the time of this battle after ‘thousand years have expired.’ This battle is at the End of Time, when the Adversary is released from his prison. He goes to gather an army against God and the Church, but in the end, looses again. Remember, this is after the release of the dragon from the prison.
So, for all of those who are declaring Obama Gog, ask yourself – has Satan been bound by Michael? Have the things in chapter 19 been accomplished? If the things of this world as not aligned themselves yet with the things of Scriptures, then forget whatever else you are hearing.
