THE GOG-MAGOG WAR VS. THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.......
The Gog-Magog War is brought by God against His land and His people of Israel as His judgment upon them for there continued iniquities according to :
"And thou shall come up against My people of Israel ; it shall be in the latter days, and I WILL BRING YOU against My land , O 'Gog...."
The above Scripture identifies GOD AS THE ONE who begins the Gog-Magog War against Israel. The following Scripture identifies GOD AS THE ONE who ends the Gog-Magog War against Israel, AKA "the time of Jacob's trouble" according to :
"....Thus saith the Lord God, I AM AGAINST THEE O' Gog......and I WILL TURN THEE BACK and leave but a sixth part of thee ..."
God kills 5/6 of the Gog-Magog Army on the mountains of Israel AFTER He uses them as His Abomination of Desolation upon Israel. This is Godís "shortened tribulation judgment upon Israel which happens just BEFORE Godís Great Tribulation judgment BEGINS upon the whole world. The Gog-Magog War happens at THE BEGINNING of the Great Tribulation, and the Battle of Armageddon happens at THE END of the Great Tribulation according to :
"And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue ARMAGEDDON. And the SEVENTH ANGEL poured out his vial into the air , and there came a great voice out of the temple in heaven, from the throne saying, IT IS DONE."
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT:
The Gog-Magog War BEGINS the Great Tribulation in Israel , and the Battle of Armageddon ENDS the Great Tribulation in Israel at the time of the Second Coming of the Lord. The Gog -Magog War happens BEFORE Jesus opens the Seventh Seal and is not any part of the Seventh Seal. The Battle of Armageddon happens, as a part of the Seventh Seal, just BEFORE the seventh angel , and LAST ANGEL, of the Seventh Seal pours out his judgment which ENDS the Great Tribulation.
According to Your Holy Word, come Lord Jesus !
