Were the recent attacks on Saudi Oil Fields foretold in Scripture?
THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG aka THE EZEKIEL 38-39 WAR 🤠< There is imho some misconception about the Ezekiel 38-39 War in light of Iran’s recent attack on Saudi Oil Fields.
I’ve seen more than one article that seemed to imply the attack on Saudi Oil was the fulfillment of the Gog and Magog Prophecy. Persia is the ancient name for the land now occupied by modern-day Iran. And Sheba and Dedan is now Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is mentioned in Ezekiel 38:13 “Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?” But that will be the Saudi response to an attack led by a leader called Gog. The attack will come from Rosh/Russia against Israel. To say that the Iranian attack on Saudi Oil is the war of Gog and Magog is putting the cart in the place of the horse.
Most Scholars agree that the Ezekiel 38-39 War will no doubt be led by Russia, followed by Turkey, Iran, Libya, Northern Sudan, and a few others. The Gog and Magog war has not taken place yet, however, the geopolitical situation is such that it could build up to that point in short order. The total and complete destruction of Damascus Prophecy of Isaiah 17 could be the catalyst that ignites Gog. Russia and a leader referred to as ‘Gog’ will lead that war against Israel.
Not to be confused with Armageddon, the Ezekiel 38-39 War will most likely take place at, or just after the Rapture of the Church… Maranatha and keep looking upward, not outward \o/
