“Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, ‘This is what the Lord God says: Behold, I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. So I will turn you around and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them magnificently dressed, a great contingent with shield and buckler, all of them wielding swords; Persia, Cush, and Put with them, all of them with buckler and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Beth-Togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops– many peoples with you.'” — Ezekiel 38:1-6
- ‘God Is Getting Ready to Do Something Amazing’: CBN Founder Pat Robertson on Russia and Its Place in Prophecy
- He cited key passages from the prophet Ezekiel regarding nations coming together one day to rise up against Israel – specifically pointing to what Russia is doing in Ukraine as a precursor to that event:
- Referring to a map showing the location of Ukraine, Robertson pointed to a “choke point” between Bulgaria, Turkey, and Greece and why Russia might eventually be aiming to control that point.
- Robertson also showed a map explaining which biblical names correspond to the modern-day countries.
- Gomer = Ukraine
- Rosh = Russia
- Magog = Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Armenia, and Azerbaijan
- Persia = Iran
- Togarmah and Tubal = Turkey and Syria
- Put = Libya
- Cush = North Sudan and Egypt
- “All of those troops there are going to be coming against Israel in the latter days. And God says, ‘I am going to take care of it.'”
- “But is Putin insane?” he asked. “Well, yes and no. Because he is being driven to move against Israel because God says ‘I’m going to put hooks in your jaws and I’m going to bring you down on them.’ Now you get the picture.”
