Author S. Douglas Woodward tackles the turbulent and tense relationship between Russia and the United States as the backdrop to Ezekiel’s famed prophecy—the “Battle of Gog and Magog.” The author argues the specter of nuclear war looms as prelude to the prophesied war when Gog gathers his great army to attack Israel. Woodward’s assessment builds upon scores of timely articles composed by respected journalists and research papers written by geopolitical experts who study the Middle East, compiling their findings and documenting why a great war may explode in the days just ahead as a result of Islamic terror, Russian militarism, and failed U.S. policies toward Iran, Iraq, Israel, and most recently the fight against ISIS in Syria. Woodward challenges popular prophetic teachings arguing the next war in the Middle East is not the “Psalm 83 War,” why Russia and not Turkey will be Ezekiel’s Gog, why advances in Russian weaponry threaten the security of the United States, and how U.S. policy is at fault for today’s instability in Syria and Iraq. Expositing Ezekiel 38-39, the author uncovers the dark forces behind Gog and shows when the event occurs during the last days. The fate of America also comprises a major theme of this study. This book tackles a number of very crucial issues that are sure to be of interest to you: Why is the Middle East so turbulent at the present time? Why are Russia and the United States in so much conflict? How did ISIS come about? Is ISIS destined to succeed in its jihad? Is the Antichrist really going to be Islamic? Is Islam the coming one world religion? Is Gog just another name for the Antichrist? Is Psalm 83 a future great war? Is it the next 'great war' in the Middle East? Does the Battle of Gog and Magog trigger the Day of the Lord? Is Gog the same personage as Daniel's "king of the North"? Will the destruction of Gog and the Rapture of the Church happen simultaneously? Where is the land of "unwalled villages?" Will the United States be destroyed at the beginning of the Battle of Gog and Magog? I answer all of these questions in what may become a controversial work refuting a lot of popular eschatology.
