The following is an article which I wrote in 1995. I wrote it on a Canon StarWriter #70. I just recently learned how to transfer materials written on the Canon StarWriter to my computer. The Canon StarWriter only had enough memory for about five and one half pages of writing. I originally had to write this article in five segments because of this. Since transferring it to my present computer, I now have it in one complete article. In transferring it, I lost all my underlining and bold print among other things, but just saving the main text saved me a lot of typing. After a five year period of time, I found things which I desired to change, so the following article will not be exactly as I originally wrote it. I originally entitled it simply The Problems With Ezekiel 38 And 39. I decided, with this writing, to change the title as you see it above.
If we are to understand this portion of the Bible, we are going to have to know who, what, when, where, why and how all of this Prophesy fits together. The first thing that has to be established is, WHO? For if we cannot establish who, the entire Prophesy will be an enigma, it will be a total mystery. I will try to establish beyond all doubt, with materials that have been established before me, as to who the who is. I am going to quote quite extensively from The Russian Chapters Of Ezekiel by one Rev. W. M. H. Milner. The articles first appeared in The National Message, published in London, England in the weekly issues of May and June, 1923. It was printed again as a Fifth Edition by Destiny Publishers, Haverhill, Massachusetts, in 1941. While this booklet is very good at establishing the who of Ezekiel 38 and 39, some of the conclusions at the end are probably incorrect. The booklet is a must for studying these two chapters, and can still be obtained from Destiny Publishers, P. O. Box 177, Merrimac, Massachusetts, 01860-0177 for $2.50 plus postage. I will be quoting also from other authors and commentators on these two chapters. After we have established some of the necessary background, we will speculate just where and maybe when this great battle may take place.
Rev. W. M. H. Milner, in the forward to his booklet writes: Forty years ago, on Wednesday, February 7th, 1883, it was my privilege to publish in the Banner of Israel, under the editorship of “Philo-Israel,” an “Exposition of Ezekiel xxxviii, xxxix,” Forty-three and a half years ago I was led to believe in the “Identity” of Our Race with the forgotten “Israel” of the Bible by seeing Russia in Ezekiel.
In the September of that year 1897, returning to my north-country home at Middleton-in-Teesdale, where my father was Rector, and having travelled through the night and arrived half-an-hour too soon for breakfast, I rested in my father’s “den” awaiting his coming. On his table was no single thing but one grey pamphlet. This caught my eye at once. For one who had never looked into the Prophecies of Holy Scripture, its title was somewhat startling. From a copy now before me I quote the Title Page, The Coming Collision Between England And Russia.
Then and there I read the pamphlet through, and having read it to the end, I rose convinced that “We” were “Israel”! It was some long time afterward that I discovered that the author, who became a friend of mine, being actually a resident in the next parish (!), did not himself believe that We were “Israel,” but that Providence had been pleased to put “England” into the position assigned to the “Israel of Prophesy”! He followed the then current jargon of the schools of Philology — We were “Aryan,” they were “Semitic,” so we and they could not be racially one!
For myself, I was a close student of “Philology.” It was a Philology paper that got me my First in “Mods.” The jargon did not trouble me at all, for I was already beginning to see, what the later Philologists asserted, that “Language” was no certain test of “Race,” but only of Social Contact. In the Prophesy “Rosh” and the rest were “Russia” — literally, not metaphorically; and, literally not metaphorically, “Israel” was Ourselves.
In 1886 I published in the Messenger my series of papers, issued subsequently in book form, entitled, “Russia Japhet.” In these each single name was probed into in detail, with all the historical references pertaining to each, and their present geographical distribution. Long afterwards, in 1919 and 1920, at Zurich, I was permitted to interest audiences drawn from the English Colony, and from their Swiss supporters, in these wonderful prophecies of Russia. Little wonder then, that, as the inevitable fulfilment draws daily nearer, this writer, who has meditated so much and so long thereon, should find this theme standing foremost in his mind. This concludes Rev. W. M. H. Milner’s forward to this booklet.
At this point we will continue to study in detail the breakdown of the key words of these two chapters. We will continue to quote Rev. W. M. H. Milner:
I. — Gôg.
“Gôg” — it is a long o both in the Hebrew and in the Greek — is made from the old-world word-root “GG,” which in the early languages implied something “g-i-g-antic.” Russia has this long time been the “Colossus” (something of great size) of the North.
A potentate of Bible history and prophecy was “A-g-a-g.” That name, or rather, title, comes from the same root. He was (in his own estimation) A, Aleph, +GG = No. 1, Great! “The Agagites,” we are told in Young’s Analytical Concordance, “were an Amalekite tribe,” and “Agag” was “A poetic name of Amalek, derived from a particular dynasty.” Of Israel it is written in Numbers xxiv. 7, “His King shall be higher than Agag,” referring to Ezekiel’s Gôg. [Numbers 24:7 from Brenton’s Septuagint: “There shall come a man out of his seed, and he shall rule over many nations; and the Kingdom of Gog shall be exalted, and his kingdom shall be increased.”]
Now Amalek was one of two — nations descended from Esau. Teman was the other. The Teman-ite Edom we shall see to be the Ottoman Turks. Gôg may be Amalek. If this be so, then Ezekiel’s predicted catastrophe of Russia coincides with Obadiah’s Downfall of Turkey. All about the “Turks” shall be explained in a later article — The Osmanli have by many of our writers been identified with Edom.
Bertrand L. Comparet in his “Russia In Prophecy” has this to say about Gog: (1) Gog — in ancient Hebrew, the root word is “G-G”, meaning huge, Gigantic. The same root is found in “Agag”, a king of Amalek; sometimes written “Agog”. This fits Russia’s great size. It should be pointed out that this GG should mean great size and not Agag. Oddly enough, Agag and his relation do have a place in this prophecy but not necessarily at this point. Now getting back to Rev. W. M. H. Milner:
II. — “The Land”
“Gôg”, the Land of,” so and so, stand the words in the prophesy, implying a regime (like that of the Tsarist oligarchy, or the Bolshevik military revolutionary minority) which, without reference to what the population might desire, decides the policy to be pursued. “L’Etat c’est Moi,” declared the Grand Monarque. Of Russia it is always true that the Rulers are themselves the State. Of course, it is always in the cards that some great military Dictator may arise- he would be a personal Gôg.
From this it appears that Gog may be just a title of the head of state. In the New American Standard Exhaustive Concordance Of The Bible, Gog means: “leader of a northern nation.” When the Bible gives a direction, in this case, it is the direction that nation is in respect to the writer at the time of his writing, and in this case it was Ezekiel. There are many Bible students feverishly and frantically trying to figure how Russia could invade the United States from the north. It should be obvious that it was a nation being prophesied about which was north of where Ezekiel was writing during his time. In other words, the United States could be attacked from any direction and the Prophecy still be true. We are getting ahead of our story somewhat, so let’s get back to Rev. W. M. H. Milner.
III. — Land of Magog.
Not only is all the territory subject to Moscow one in its subjection to its rulers, but it is one also in virtue of a common element of blood. From the borders of Poland and Lithuania to Kamchatka and Vladivostock the so-called Russian peoples are either pure or mixed Mongolian (“Scratch a Russian and you will find a Tartar”) — . (At this point, the matter of race comes thundering into the picture and you have to realize that we are in an all-out knockdown drag out racial war. I cannot amplify this very serious problem of race enough! We Israelites are not to have anything to do whatsoever with these other races. We are to totally separate ourselves from them. Some try to indicate that we are to rule over them, and somehow set them straight, that they are a part of Yahweh’s creation. It was for race-mixing that Yahweh caused the flood at Noah’s time. Haven’t we learned anything in six thousand years?) Let’s go on with Rev. W. M. H. Milner: for
is Mongolia. That is, the country so named, and the adjoining areas peopled by those the actual Mongolians — nothing whatever to do with the use of the term Mongolian as a generic designation for the “Yellow Race.” To quote from my original article in the Banner :—
“M’gog, as a geographic term used by Hebrews of old and Arabs of today (Majaj), denoted that vast stretch of country to the north of the Black Sea, Caucasus, Caspian Sea, Hindû Kûsh, and Altai, known to the later Greek geographers as Skythia, [not to be confused with the Scythians] and to us as the Russian Empire in Europe and Asia. Thus, without proceeding further, we may know the land which is identified with Gôg.” Narrowed down to actual fact, this means a Mongolia in the western half of that great area which may reasonably be called so because Mongolian blood predominates therein; and, a Mongolia in the eastern half which is practically all Mongol, the Chinese State of that name and the Siberian territories adjoining thereunto ...
Continuing with Rev. W. M. H. Milner, (and he is quoting from a book entitled Russian Japhet). “Magog was the second son of Japhet. The Arabian geographer of the Middle Ages appropriated his name, under the form of Majuj, to the same indefinite region which the later Greek and Roman writers designated Skythia — the vast inner expanse of Europe and Asia. (While it is true that this area is the area to which the descendants of Japeth migrated, the name ‘Skythia’ designates a name that the Israelites were called in their migrations in that same area.) Continuing: In the map published in 1840 by the S.P.C.K., in their Notes, Explanatory and Practical to the Bible, all the territory between the Don in European Russia, and the Altai mountains in the very heart of Siberian Asia is assigned to the descendants of Magog.
“From the high-lands of Pamir, in the heart of Central Asia, whereon, according to the arguments of some of the earlier chapters of this treatise, the Japhetic races grew into national existence, an easy highway leads towards the eastern half of Asia. The Tarim river, whose valley this route would follow ... loses itself ... on the edge of the Gobi desert. The basin of this river, forming a broad expanse between the Tia-shan mountains on the north and the range of Kuenlum to the southward, is one continual camping ground. Where these mountain barriers end begins the country called Mongolia, the original home of the Mongol race.
“The word Mongolian is one which is frequently used to denote the whole population of inner and northern Asia. At the outset we must carefully define a term like this. The type of race so often called in manuals of ethnology ‘Mongolian’, let us designate by the term ‘Turanian’ — the significance of which is co-extensive with the scriptural ‘Japhetic.’ ... ‘Mongol’ must be reserved as the title of that race which, however far afield it may since have wandered, issued from the territory distinctively designated ‘Mongolia.’ ”
Now the name Mongol and the name Magog are, with slight variations, identical. Gibbon writes “Mongol” Mongou. In India “Mongol” became Mogh-ul—Mgg represents Mng, “Mongol” is “Magog.” At this point, it cannot be over stressed that “Mongol” is the same as “Magog.”
The former province of Manchuria was peopled from Mongolia. Between 1850 and 1860 Russia absorbed 150,000 square miles of Manchurian territory — since 1860 100,000 more. These incursions into Manchuria have given Russia a quarter-million square miles of the Land of Magog.
Mongolia itself, the great Chinese province of that name, was in the year 1911 placed in political dependence on Russia. The Bolshevist regime, in its steady onward push into all that was once the Czar’s, has also claimed this province. The original Land of Magog is thus Russia.
But long before the arms of Russia were carried so far in the direction of China, much of the Land of Magog (in the wider sense) was under Russian rule — the Tunguses, and Buriats of eastern Siberia are Monguls. In this way to north and south of the Russian Siberian frontier, something like two million square miles of Mongul-peopled territory are Russian. From this, it is not hard to see that Japhetic Russia absorbed the Mongolians!!!
Earlier still, Russia had been overrun by Magog the Mongol. (1) The Huns issued from Mongolia. The Empire of Attila included the most important part of European Russia. Some of the blood of the present population of central and southern Russia must have been derived from these Mongolian Huns. This early predominance of the tribesmen of Attila has done much to make the Russian Empire the Land of Magog. I hope you are understanding what you are reading. It appears that it is very important to understand the history of this era of time. As we continue, we can see the plan of the satanic seedline, the genetic descendants of Satan who seduced Eve producing Cain, trying to destroy the White seed of the woman (Israel). It is obvious that in America today, the “Jews” are promoting the mixing of Whites with Mongolian and other sub-races. Let’s continue:
(2) In the year A.D. 1224 Mongol hordes poured over Russia under Genghiz Kahn. They came again in 1237. Latham says they bore the specific name of “Mongol.” Gibbon describes how they overran and devastated Russia. For more than two hundred years, to 1480, Russia lay crushed beneath the Mongul rule. Russia was, in fact, Mongolized from end to end. Latham points out that a considerable mixture of the two races took place, showing itself in their language, features, and bodily appearance. Even the Mongol tent formed the basis of their architecture down to the days of Peter the Great.
Thus — to sum up — The Russian Empire not only includes within its bounds nearly the whole of the Mongol area ..., but from the two great invasions, that of Attila and that of Genghiz — the latter resulting in a subjugation lasting upwards of two centuries — the whole of the vast expanse now governed by the Bolshevist minority from Moscow is saturated with Mongol blood and Mongol manners. The Russian Empire is the land of Magog.
Ezekiel’s Gôg is thrice described (verses 2 & 3 of the 38th chapter, verse 1 of the 39th) — in the Authorized English version as:
V. — CHIEF PRINCE OF
the two peoples next named. King James diviners were rather doubtful about this rendering, so inserted in the margin
“Or, Prince of the chief” (of).
These marginal notes were inserted to show that, while they would not unnecessarily disturb any form of the words with which the earlier English version had made the people familiar, they preferred the renderings thus suggested. This particular suggestion they took from Jerome’s Latin “Vulgate.” He had written, in this passage, ——— “Principem Capitis,” ——— because the Hebrew word “Rosh” bore the meaning “Head.” Five hundred years previously the Greek Jewish Divines of Alexandria had boldly inserted the Name instead of its supposed meaning. So in the “Septuagint” version we read:
“Ruler of Rôsh.”
The early German versions said the same. It was only in England that we had to wait for the “Revised Version” of 1885 to read in our own tongue:
“Prince of Rosh”
Let us now consider the Name.
The learned Hebrew linguist, Gesenius, remarks upon the word :!9 in Ezekiel xxxviii, 2,3;xxxix, 1, that it is a proper name, undoubtedly answering to the name of Russia, the more so that the first mention of the Russians, in the writings of Byzantine and Arabian authors of the tenth century, is under the very form adopted by the LXX, namely ῾Ρῶς.
“That famous name”, writes Dr. Vilhelm Thomsen, “first appears in Greek and Latin writers of the ninth century in the shape of an indeclinable word, οἱ ῾Ρῶς, τὸ ψῶς, [should read: οἱ ῾Ρῶς, τὸ ῾Ρῶς,] ‘the Russ,’ as if it stood for some unintelligible abstraction. It soon became familiar at Constantinople as the name of sea rovers, whose fleets from the rivers of the Black Sea insulted and threatened the great capital.”
The ninth chapter of the work of the Emperor Constantine Porphyrogenitus on the administration of the Eastern Empire, written about the year 950, is entitled “About the Rhôs who came from Russia to Constantinople with their boats.” These boats, the Emperor tells us — canoes, indeed, they might be translated, the Greek word employed meaning “made out of a trunk” — started from outer Russia, assembling below Kiev, in order to pass in company that long series of rapids which the Dnieper forms for a distance of fifty miles. The imperial author gives the name of these rapids both in “Sclavonic” (Slavonic) and in “Russian.” The Russian words are pure Scandinavian. Not only this, but all the members of the Russian royal family (of the House of Rurik), as well as of the Russian noblemen or private persons who are mentioned in the early chronicles, have pure Scandinavian names. Rurik and his fellows were as much “Northmen” as those who forced their way into the British Isles — the “Rus” were undoubtedly Norman. At this time, the story is starting to get very interesting. We know that the word “Northmen” refers to Norway. We also know that the people of Norway are from the tribe of Benjamin. We know that the symbol of Benjamin is the Wolf. We have evidence indicating that William the Conqueror was probably of the tribe of Benjamin. The tribe of Benjamin was evidently quite active in Russia as well as in Norway and England. As a matter of fact, these Benjamite Northmen had a big part in breaking down and causing the fall of the Empire of the Khazars of Ashkenazim. At this time, for a moment, we will leave the writings of Rev. W. M. H. Milner and take some excerpts from the book The Thirteenth Tribe by Arthur Koestler.
Arthur Koestler was the author of a book entitled The Thirteenth Tribe. In this book he proves the origin of the Ashkenazi “Jews.” It is not our object here to get into that subject, but because we want to document the activities of the Benjamite Northmen in the land of Russia, we are going to quote some excerpts from his book. We are going to quote from chapter III, “Decline” (meaning the decline of Khazaria). We will pick up his comments on page 85 where he is telling the effects which the Rus (Vikings) were having on the one hand, and the Arabs were having on the other:
The potential enemy against whom this impressive fortress was built by a joint Roman-Khazar effort, was those formidable and menacing newcomers on the world scene, whom the West called Vikings or Norsemen, and the East called Rhous or Rhos or Rus.
Two centuries earlier, the conquering Arabs had advanced on the civilized world in a gigantic pincer movement, its left prong reaching across the Pyrenees, its right prong across the Caucasus. Now, during the Viking Age, history seemed to create a kind of mirror image of that earlier phase. The initial explosion which had triggered off the Muslim wars of conquest took place in the southwest region of the known world, the Arabian desert. The Viking raids and conquest originated in its northern most region, Scandinavia. The Arabs advanced northward by land, the Norsemen southward by sea and waterways. The Arabs were, at least in theory, conducting a Holy War, the Vikings waged unholy wars of piracy and plunder; but the results, as far as the victims were concerned, were much the same. In neither case have historians been able to provide convincing explanations of the economical, ecological or ideological reasons which transformed these apparently quiescent (dormant) regions of Arabia and Scandinavia quasi overnight into volcanoes of exuberant vitality and reckless enterprise. Both eruptions spent their force within a couple of centuries but left a permanent mark on the world. Both evolved in this time-span from savagery and destructiveness to splendid cultural achievement.
About the time when Sarkel was built by joint Byzantine-Khazar efforts in anticipation of attack by the eastern Vikings, their western branch had already penetrated all the major waterways of Europe and conquered half of Ireland. Within the next few decades they colonized Iceland, conquered Normandy, repeatedly sacked Paris, raided Germany, the Rhône delta, the gulf of Genoa, circumnavigated the Iberian peninsula and attacked Constantinople through the Mediterranean and the Dardanelles — simultaneously with a Rus attack down the Dnieper and across the Black Sea. As Toynbee wrote: ‘In the ninth century, which was the century in which the Rhos impinged on the Khazars and the East Romans, the Scandinavians were raiding and conquering and colonizing in an immense arc that eventually extended south-westward ... to North America and south-eastward to ... the Caspian Sea.’
No wonder that a special prayer was inserted in the litanies of the West: A furore Normannorum libera nos Domine. No wonder that Constantinople needed its Khazar allies as a protective shield against the carved dragons on the bows of the Viking ships, as it had needed them a couple of centuries earlier against the green banners of the Prophet. And, as on that earlier occasion, the Khazars were again to bear the brunt of the attack, and eventually to see their capital laid in ruins.
Not only Byzantium had reason to be grateful to the Khazars for blocking the advance of the Viking fleets down the great waterways from the north. We have now gained a better understanding of the cryptic passage in Joseph’s letter to Hasdai written a century later: ‘With the help of the Almighty I guard the mouth of the river and do not permit the Rus who come in their ships to invade the land of the Arabs ... I fight heavy wars [with the Rus].’
The particular brand of Vikings which the Byzantines called ‘Rhos’ were called ‘Varangian’ by the Arab chroniclers. The most probable derivation of ‘Rhos’, according to Toynbee, is ‘from the Swedish word “rodher”, meaning ‘rowers’. As for ‘Varangian’, it was used by the Arabs and also the Russian Primary Chronicle to designate Norsemen or Scandinavians; the Baltic was actually called by them ‘the Varangian Sea’. Although this branch of Vikings originated from eastern Sweden, as distinct from the Norwegians and Danes who raided Western Europe, their advance followed the same pattern. It was seasonal; it was based on strategically placed islands which served as strongholds, armouries and supply bases for attacks on the mainland; and its nature evolved, where conditions were favourable, from predatory raids and forced commerce to more or less permanent settlements and ultimately, amalgamation with the conquered native populations. Thus the Viking penetration of Ireland started with the seizure of the island of Rechru (Lombay) in Dublin Bay; England was invaded from the isle of Thanet; penetration of the Continent started with the conquest of the islands of Walcheren (off Holland) and Noirmoutier (in the estuary of the Loire).
At the eastern extreme of Europe the Northmen were following the same blueprint for conquest. After crossing the Baltic and the Gulf of Finland they sailed up the river Volkhov into Lake Ilmen (south of Leningrad), where they found a convenient island — the Holmgard of the Icelandic Sagas. On this they built a settlement which eventually grew into the city of Novgorod. From here they forayed on southward on the great waterways: on the Volga into the Caspian and on the Dnieper into the Black Sea. From this, you can see that Benjamin, did indeed, have an important role to play in the history of Russia. Although they had a part to play, they evidently didn’t mix with the peoples of Magog (Mongol). But this did not keep them from leaving their name in that area, as you will see. Now back to Rev. W. M. H. Milner:
We have seen that Rosh was the earliest form of the Russian name. Rosh does not occur with Magog and the rest in the catalogue of the sons of Japheth in Genesis x. But the name does occur in Genesis xlvi. 21, in the line of Shem, the chosen line through Eber to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, being given as one of the sons of Benjamin, one of the tribes of Israel. Benjamin we British-Israelites have been in the habit of identifying as the ancestor of the Normans. If this identification be correct, and Scandinavia was largely settled by that particular Hebrew tribe, then Rosh has been an element of Israel left in Russia, first as founders and rulers of the Russian State, then as a remnant reduced to subjection by Mongolised Russia. So Gog is now prince of Rosh.
We will pause a moment to read Genesis 46:21: And the sons of Benjamin were Belah and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, Huppim, and Ard. Now lets get back to W. M. H. Milner:
I had two suggestions as to the identity of Rosh as an Israelite element in modern Russia: (1) That the Scandinavian aristocracy in Finland is Rosh, and their privileges we know have been filched (stolen) from them by the Tsar and his bureaucracy. (2) That the Ruthenian population of the southern part of Western Russia bordering on Galicia and Roumania (Romania) are Rosh. There is a possibility that the Ruth of Ruthenia is derived from Russ of the Scandinavian founders of Russia, and they do occupy our old early European home in Arsareth.
Incidentally in this connection I may mention that about a month before the War a British-Israel lady in London wrote to me that she was coming to Penzance, and might she introduce to us a Ruthenian friend? She enclosed a pamphlet by him in which he showed that the Ruthenian population of Russia would infinitely prefer to be incorporated with the Ruthenians of Galicia under Austrian rule! You can see here that there is evidently Hebrew stock in Russia, or at least there was at the time of the writing of this booklet by Milner.
Then came the War. Russia was our Ally. The visit to Penzance never came off, and we never made the acquaintance of our Ruthenian. Where precisely Rosh is to be located, within the limits of mighty Russia, time will show.
The Czars have gone. Lenin and his Bolsheviks rule Russia. Lenin may die, and Trotsky or some heathen triumvirate may reign in his stead. Hindenburg may step in, or perhaps the Russian representative of the Napoleons; or some military dictator. The old Russian realm from the borders of Finland, Lithuania, and Poland to Kamchatka and Vladivostock is theirs, whoever they may be. The “Russ” may have been exterminated, but the name of “Russia” survives. Gôg, the slave-driver of “All the Russians” will be
“PRINCE OF ROSH.”
By extracts from Russia Japhet, Chapter ix, I proceed to prove that the next name in Ezekiel’s catalogue,
VII. — MESHECH
is the same as that of:
MOSCOW AND THE MUSCOVITES.
“It may be said that the principality of Muscovy took its name from Moscow, the ancient metropolis of Russia, and still the centre of Russian policy; and Moscow took its name from the river on whose banks it rises — Moscow on the Moskva. But whence did the river Mosk-va get its name? Were there no Muscovites dwelling by its banks from whom the designation of both river and city, and of the later people of that name, originated? That there were Muscovites in Russia during the first half of the Christian era, and that these Muscovites were descendants of the Japhetic Meshech, I purpose now, so far as the case admits of proof, to demonstrate.
1. GEOGRAPHICAL PROBABILITY
“The territory first occupied by Meshech after their descent from the table-lands of Pamir was the plain at present peopled by Turcomans, between the Oxus and the Caspian. Between the Caspian and the Sea of Aral is a belt of higher ground, from 300 to 500 feet above sea-level. But the Turcoman plain continues, with an average width of 200 miles, along the shore of the Caspian to the Ural. The whole of this area would be naturally peopled by the occupants of the main plain to the southward along the frontier of Persia. The Ural river is the conventional boundary between Europe and Asia. Beyond the Ural the level land — a district continuation, be it noted, of the Turcoman plain — spreads out to a width in some cases of 300 miles, leading along the northern shore of the Caspian uninterruptedly to the great bend in the course of the Volga and the adjoining bend in the course of the Don. These two rivers end their courses in different seas, 400 miles apart. At their bends they are separated only by 40 miles, and from that point form two distinct continuations of the Ural route from Turkistan. From the mouth of the Ural in the northern culmination of the Caspian Sea, up the valley of the Volga to Moscow is about 1,200 miles. By the Don, from the same point, to its source in the neighborhood of Moscow, is but 900 miles. These distances are nothing compared to the thousands of miles worked out in the migrations of other races. The period of this migration may have lasted over several centuries. The line of it is the one natural route by which Moscow and Muscovy would be peopled.
1. IDENTITY OF NAME.
“The name of Moscow is the name of Meshech. That the reader may understand how exact the correspondence is, I would refer him to the Table given in an earlier chapter (Of Russia Japhet) of some of the variant forms under which the name translated “Meshech” might appear — the word in the Hebrew text being a word of three letters, which may be written M Sh Ch, M S C, or M S K. By the light of that Table consider the following list of names: — (It should be noted here that the “Table” spoken of will not be recorded here. You will have to take my word for it that there is one. Milner’s text is enough to understand the connections of the names.)
“Mosc-ow, the spelling familiar in English works ... Mosk-au, the form in Stieler’s Hand-Atlas (German), for both city and province. Mask-va, or Mosk-wa, the river on which Moscow stands. Novo Mosc-owsk, on the tributary of the Dnieper, in South Russia ... Musc-ovy and Musc-ovite, the English designation of the district, the character, the policy, and the empire ... Mösk-o, an island of the Baltic near to Stockholm ... Mosch-aisk, on the Moskva, near Borodino, Mosch-ok, half-way between Moscow and Nijni Novgorod. Mosch-arki, on a tributary of the Volga, near the city of Kazan ... Misch-etski, between Moscow and Tula. Misch-irischi, on the Muscovite border of the Ukraine ... Macchk-owo, near Tula, south of Moscow ... Mesch-a, one of the headstreams of the Dwian, west of Moscow. Mesch-tschowsk, near Tula, and south-west of Moscow. Mesch-tschewskaia, on the border of Ukraine. Meschk-uze near Riga ... Most of these forms are taken from Stieler’s German Hand-Atlas, and in some the guttural is not so hard as in others. But all are good transliterations of the Hebrew $:/; and the whole district within five hundred miles of Moscow seems to be saturated with the name of Meshech. May it not even lie concealed under the designation of the Russian peasant, which in a recent standard work, ‘Russia,’ is written under the form of Muzhik?
3. IDENTITY OF NATIONAL CHARACTER
“But if the name and the place agree with the origin of Moscow from Japhetic Meshech, still more strikingly does the national character of the Muscovites. Brute force and deceitful cunning are the two characteristics assigned in the lament of Psalm cxx to the Meshech of the sixth century B.C. That these are the two great marks of the Muscovite race to-day the words of the authors below quoted will suffice to prove. —
But first let us read the 120th Psalm from the King James Version: 1 In my distress I cried unto the Yahweh, and He heard me. 2 Deliver my soul , O Yahweh, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue. 3 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue? 4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. 5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war. It appears, with this Scripture, we shouldn’t be talking peace with the Soviets!!!
Back to Milner about the “Muscovite race”, quoting from Russian Japhet: “Turning now to consider the Meshech of modern times, it must first be borne in mind that the name Muscovite belongs strictly only to one particular subject-people of the Czars, that, namely, which dominates the important central district called Great Russia. ‘Weliki or Great Russia’, writes the author of The Czar, His court and People, already quoted, ‘including the central provinces of which Moscow is the chief, is distinguished as the nucleus of the empire, and in point of wealth, and the industry of its population, is justly entitled to this distinction.’ The rapacity and cunning of the Great Russians are noted by Mr. Maxwell, who thus continues: ‘The Great Russian is predominant among the various people of the Empire. His power is in the ascendant, and he stands forth conspicuous, the type of his name and nation. He is commonly distinguished for his red or yellow hair, coarse features, fine teeth, small grey eyes, low narrow forehead, and badly-proportioned figure. He is avaricious, savage, and sensual; and although capable of great endurance, is deficient in elasticity and vigour ... The Great Russian lives to an extreme old age — longer upon an average than the man of any other country. His generative vigour is remarkable. In Central Russia the increase of the population is beyond all former precedent in Europe. While the natives of the conquered provinces are diminishing with fearful rapidity, the population of the whole Empire, refreshed from this inexhaustible source, counts every year another million among its multitudes. Thousands and tens of thousands, in a perpetual stream, flow from this fountain-head into the vast regions of the north, east, south and west. We are now going to break into the narration, at this point, and read Genesis 9:27: Yahweh shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem ... We will not quote the entire verse, just enough to understand that Japheth would become very large.
From this point on, for the next several pages, Milner describes the corrupt character of the Japhetic Meshech Russian people in terms such as: trickery, cheating, manipulative, corrupt, bribery, shameless, sordid, cunning, dreadful, irresponsible, venal, revolt, regicide, plunder, fraud, violence, utter ignorance, dishonesty, stupidity, depraved, worthless, habitual drunkards, and degraded. Then he says on page 26, “Well might the unhappy psalmist cry out against the brute force in which Meshech delighted. Well might the prophet say of the system which permitted such things to be, ‘Behold, I am against thee.’ ...There may be good men in Russia, and there may be good purpose in many Russian laws. But the whole administration of the empire has been saturated with Muscovitism, derived from Japhetic hordes that had issued from the wilds of Central Asia ... From the ‘regenerating mission’ of such a people, may the world be speedily delivered.”
“MESHECH and Tubal” peopled — the one, as we have seen, what we call European Russia; the other, as we now shall see, the original Asiatic Russia, the beginning of what we call Siberia. The original Siberia was only the valley of the Tobol. From this valley Bulgaria was peopled. With these preliminaries I now proceed to identify
TOBOLSK AND THE BULGARIANS.
It seems best to give the two Tables of variant forms of “Meshech” and “Tubal,” merely because this series may reach the eyes of some to whom the whole identification is new, and people in reading Ezekiel will call them “Meeshek” and “Tewbal.”
Meshech and Tubal, as their names read in the English versions, occur together in the ethnological tables given in Gen. x. and 1 Chron. i. The Septuagint Greek version has Mosoch and Thobel. The names themselves, as they stand in the Hebrew text, have just one long vowel between them. “Mesech” is simply משך M sh ch; and “Tubal” is תןבל Th–bal or Thôbl, and in one place תבל Th b l. Any short vowels may be inserted — nor are the vowels only responsible for the possible differences of form. Sh before a guttural readily becomes S. It is difficult to pronounce Sh and Ch together — it is easier to say Musk and Mushk. The Ch may pass into the hard K, while the form of the Hebrew ב suggests our C. Thus we get the following table of forms (out of a total of at least eighty possible transliterations) in which the name of the Japhetic Meshech may be found.
Now we are going to consider the variant forms of the words “Meshech” and “Tubal”. First, Meshech: (Two syllables): Meshech, Meshek, Mesech, Mesec, Mosoch, Mosokh (One syllable): Maskh, Masch, Mesch, Misch, Moskh, Mosch, Mask, Masc, Mosc, Musc. Second, Tubal: Thobel, Tubal, Tobal, Tobl, Tupal, Tupl, Sabar, Tabal, Tapal, Tibil, Tivol, Tifl, Tabr, Taber, Tibar, Tiber, Tever, Tibur, Tapur, Tapyr, Siber, Sibir, Sever, Bal, Bel, Bol, Bul, Bar, Val, Vol. (I got these from tables #1 and #2 on page 28 of Milner’s booklet.) Right away, here, you can see that the word Siberia comes from the word Tubal, a son of Japheth. Now back to Rev. W. M. H. Milner.
While for a time the early settlements of the Tobol in Siberia represented Tubal, Tubal is specially the great migration which produced Bulgaria. Northwards, on the Volga, in a little village is to be seen all that remains of the once powerful city of Bol-gara, named in the first chapter of Marco Polo’s Travels as being, with Sarai or Astrakhan, the seat of rule of the Mongol dominions in Russia in the middle of the thirteenth century. “The Bolgar, Bulgar, or Bulghar, here spoken of,” adds Marco Polo’s Editor (Bohn 1854, p. 4), “is the name of a town and extensive district in Tartary, lying to the eastward of the Volga, and now inhabited by the Bashkirs, sometimes distinguished from the Bulgaria on the Danube, by the appellation of the Greater Bulgaria.”
Word for word, Volga and Bulga are the same. Syllable for syllable, both the Vol and the Bul are identical with the root form of the name of Tu-bal. The gar or ghar, the second syllable in the name Bulgaria, is of distinctly Central Asiatic origin being found in the name of Kash-ghar, the territory which adjoins the cradleland of the Japhetic races in the plateaux of Pamir. The Bulgaria on the Volga is geographically part of the area which includes the original Siberia on the Tobol, and all historians are agreed that the later Bulgaria on the Danube derives its name and its Bulgarian settlers from the Greater Bulgaria on the Volga. Probability, therefore, most readily derives the Bulgarian race from Tubal.
It is generally imagined that the Bulgarians are Slavonic. This is the pretext put forward by the military party in Russia for their claim upon the affections of Bulgaria. Muscovy, having absorbed the Slavonic Poles and Lithuanians, poses as the suzerain of the Slavonic world. Muscovy and Bulgaria may be indeed by race closely allied, but are either of Slavonic lineage?
The historian Gibbon, in the forty-second chapter of his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, referring to the middle of the sixth century A.D. deals with the question thus:— “The wild people who dwelt or wandered in the plains of Russia, Lithuania and Poland might be reduced, in the age of Justinian, under the two great families of the Bulgarians and the Sclavonians (Slavonians). According to the Greek writers, the former, who touched the Euxine and the lake Maeotis, derived from the Huns their name or descent; and it is needed to renew the simple and well-known picture of Tartar manners. They were bold and dextrous archers, who drank the milk and feasted on the flesh of their fleet and indefatigable horses; whose flocks and herds followed, or rather guided, the motions of their roving camps; to whose inroads no country was remote or impervious, and who were practised in flight, though incapable of fear ... The Bulgarians, of whatsoever species, were equally attracted by Roman wealth; they assumed a vogue dominion over the Sclavonian (Slavonian) name, their rapid marches could only be stopped by the Baltic Sea, or the extreme cold and poverty of the north.”
The Slavonians, on the other hand, were not rovers. “Their numerous tribes, however distant or adverse, used one common language, and were known by the resemblance of their form, which derived from the swarthy Tartar, and approached without attaining the lofty stature and fair complexion of the German ... The incessant rapine of their neighbours compelled them to bury this treasure in the earth; but on the appearance of a stranger, it was freely imparted by a people whose unfavourable character was qualified by the epithets of chaste, patient, hospitable.”
Skipping a paragraph of his book, we pick it up again on page 32: “How early.” continues Dr. Latham, “the Bulgarians became Slavonized we cannot tell. Nor yet can we give the details of the Bulgarian kingdom, or its origin. We only know that during the prevalence of the Hun name that of the Bulgarian was unknown, and that soon after the break-up of the kingdom of Attila the word Bulgarian presents itself. As a rule, they are the enemies of the empire; and, as a rule, they are allied with the Slavonians. They are pagans and warriors; warriors, too, who join their allies in distant as well as near enterprises. There was a Bulgarian element in the Langobard invasion of Italy, and afterwards a permanent Bulgarian settlement” in the very country which the names Tiber and Tivoli have already led us to associate with Tubal.
It was in the year A.D. 559, according to Gibbon, that the Bulgarians invaded the Eastern Empire. Their way lay open from the Great Bulgaria on the Volga, down the valley of the Don (which forms almost a continuous course with the middle portion of the Volga) into the countries of the Euxine. Emile de Laveleye, the champion of the races now emancipating themselves from Turkish rule, in his Balkan Peninsula, p. 245 writes: “The Bulgarians, of Turanian race, came across the Danube from the banks of the Volga in the fifth century, They settled in the eastern side of the Peninsula, and intermingled with the Slavs, whose language and customs they adopted, just as the Franks of Germanic race, after their conquest of Gaul, became Frenchmen of neo-Latin language ...
Now we shall skip about four paragraphs and go to page 33: Culture, refinement, and patriotism are found amongst the true Slavonic element, while the Bulgarian populace is a ready hotbed for the intrigues of Russia. Meshech and Tubal are never to be found far from one another. The name of Tubal is still impressed upon the country to-day. The root form of it is found not only in Bul-garia, but also in the modern name of the great mountain range — Haemus of old, but now the Bal-kans — recalling the Bal-kan hills and bay on the Caspian shore of Tubal’s former settlements in Central Asia. But the full name itself occurs. Just as the Siberian river bears the name of Tobol, so, hard by the Bulgarian frontier, is a river called Toplitza. The Tupl-ai of the Assyrian inscriptions are admitted to be Tubal. Meshech and Tubal, two of the principle Japhetic peoples, so closely, as we have seen, associated both in Scripture and in Ancient history, have now been traced from their early beginnings, nearly four thousand years ago, to their present standing point in the history and politics of the world. Both find their home in Russia.
By this time, we have pretty well established who Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal are. We understand that through race-mixing, the descendants of Japheth mixed with the Mongol producing the type of Russian as we know today. We shall now proceed to pick out some more interesting items, at random, from Rev. W. M. H. Milner’s The Russian Chapters Of Ezekiel. Before we do, though, it should be pointed out that Milner believed that this invasion would take place in old Palestine. Today, we can be sure that the invasion will take place in the United States! We will be taking a look at just where this battle may possibly occur in our country. Before we do, let us establish some more pertinent facts to be able to make a better prediction. While I say “prediction”, I do not imply in any way that I am a prophet. I am only trying to understand what the prophets wrote.
We pick up a very important item on page 48 of Milner’s booklet as follows: “Of the Cossacks there are three families: 1. The Cossacks of the Ukraine on the borders of Galicia and Poland. 2. The Cossacks of the Don and the Volga. 3. The Turki Kirghis Cossacks of the steppes and the mountain plateaux of Central Asia.” (We are going to concentrate on number 3): “Of these three families the third and largest we have above identified with Togarmah. There being three families of the Gomeridæ and three families of Cossacks, and one of the three being in each case identical I submit that it is reasonable and probable to identify the other two families of the Gomeridæ with the other two families of Cossacks. Ashkenaz will be the nearer to Central Europe, for the “Jews” passing that way have always been known as Ashkenazim. Riphath would be about the Volga and the Don, for were not the Riphæan mountains (the Urals) called from Him? and Togarmah is the Turk. In these three sections of the Cossacks we find several ‘hordes of Gomer’, amongst the ‘hordes of Togarmah’ receive special mention by the prophet.
It would appear, if the above is true, that the eastern Ashkenazi “Jews” are part and parcel with Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal! This puts another view on understanding Ezekiel 38 and 39. They have to be included in this prophesy. They are a part of it! They are all related! For further proof that they are, let’s go to page 72 of Arthur Koestler’s book The Thirteenth Tribe: Joseph (king of Khazaria) then proceeds to provide a genealogy of his people. Though a fierce “Jewish” nationalist, proud of wielding the ‘Sceptre of Judah’, he cannot, and does not, claim for them Semitic decent; he traces their ancestry not to Shem, but to Noah’s third son, Japheth; or more precisely to Japheth’s grandson, Togarma, the ancestor of all Turkish tribes. ‘We have found in the family registers of our father’, Joseph asserts boldly, ‘that Togarma had ten sons, and the names of their offspring are as follows: Uigur, Dursu, Avars, Huns, Basilii, Tarniakh, Khazars, Zagora, Bulgars, Sabir. We are the sons of Khazar, the seventh .... A note at the bottom of the page reads: It also throws a sidelight on the frequent description of the Khazars as the people of Magog. Magog, according to Genesis X, 2-3 was the much maligned uncle of Togarma. We can see here, the “Jews” have a very important role to play in this prophesy!!! They will probably be the ringleaders of it!!!
There is a very interesting footnote on page 36 of Rev. W. M. H. Milner’s The Russian Chapters Of Ezekiel. It refers to the Scripture, Ezekiel 39:2, which reads thus in the King James Version: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee; and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel. Now to read this footnote by Milner on page 36: In chap. xxxix. 2, the ordinary English Bibles add to “I will turn thee back” the words “and leave but the sixth part of thee.” This should be “lead thee”, which is the simple rendering of the word ששא, so mysteriously rendered by the A.V., “leave but the sixth part,” “strike with six plagues.” “with a hook of six teeth;” all because שש is six! The LXX render καθοδηγήσω, “I will conduct.” See Gesenius’ Hebrew Lexicon. The thing that is outstanding here is: “with a hook of six teeth.” Could it be that the hook with six teeth might represent the Star of David? If it does, it means it will be the “Jews” that will be playing a leading role in this attack.
Let us read this verse as it might read with this footnote in mind: And I will turn thee back, and will use a hook with six teeth, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, I will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel. Does that make any more sense?
Another thing that we should consider, and I think it is a key verse to understand the who question, is Ezekiel 39:10. This verse will identify, at least in part, just who Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal are. Let’s read it: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forest; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith Yahweh El. You will notice that it says that Israel will “rob those that robbed them.” This can only mean the Mongol “Jews.” Yes, I know that our Government has been robbing us for many years and using the money to prop up the Mongol Soviet Union, but it has been the “Jews” that initiated it. It is the “Jews” that have been robbing us by confiscatory taxes and many other ways.
Now if the above is true, that the “Jews” are indeed Mongol (Magog), then we are going to have to consider that much of Ezekiel 38 and 39 may have already happened, that many things are already established facts of history. As we study these two chapters, we will have to establish what has already happened and what is still yet to come.
So that we can now get started with the story of Ezekiel 38 and 39, we will take some excerpts by Bertrand L. Comparet from his Russia In Prophesy. These are excerpts from his radio sermons. Today, all well-informed people know that we will soon receive a treacherous attack by Communist hordes led by Russia. Those who are well-informed in the Word of Yahweh have known this for a long time; for the prophets described it in detail, written some 2,500 years ago. We find it principally in the 38th and 39th chapters of Ezekiel, beginning “And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying, Son of Adam, set thy face against GOG, the land of MAGOG, the chief prince (or prince of ROSH) MESHECH and TUBAL, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus saith Yahweh El; Behold I am against thee, O GOG, the chief prince of MESHECH and TUBAL.’ ” Ezekiel 38:1-2) Of whom is Yahweh speaking?
(1) GOG — in ancient Hebrew, the root word is G-G, meaning huge, GiG-antic. The same root is found in “Agag”, a king of Amalek; sometimes written “Agog”. This fits Russia’s great size. (2) MAGOG: ancient Hebrew (and Arab) geographers applied this name to the area lying north of the Black and Caspian Seas, the Hindu Kush (Afghanistan) and Altai — western and southwestern Russia. The root M-G-G also underlies “Mongol” — and you know the proverb, “Scratch a Russian and you find a Tartar.” Magog was the 2nd son of Japhet (others being Meshech and Tubal) and was known to have migrated to southwestern Russia. (3) MESHECH — in ancient Hebrew, a word of 3 letters, corresponding to “M-s-c” or “M-sh-ch”. This root is found in many place names near (and including) Moscow. The ancients understood this to mean Moscow. (4) TUBAL — in ancient Hebrew, written with 3 letters, corresponding to “th-b-l”; later, sometimes written “Tubal” sometimes “Thobol.” It is the root from which is derived TOBOLSK — TOBOL plus the Russian suffix “sk” indicating a place name. Moscow is the capital city of western, or European, Russia; while Tobolsk, for most of its existence, has been the capital city of eastern, or Siberian, Russia. For at least the last 150 years, most scholars have recognized these words as identifying Russia as the power spoken of in these verses.
Verse 4 continues, “And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armor, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. “Russia’s previous invasions of Europe were turned back, until the treachery of our own leaders gave her Eastern Europe in 1944-45; Yahweh turned back all premature advances of Russia, keeping her out until the proper time,” For a moment we will return to Rev. W. M. H. Milner and quote what he has to say about “The Turning Back Of Russia.”
This seems to have been Russia’s fate. In the Crimean War, and again in the War of 1877-78, when Russia arrived at the very gates of Constantinople, in each of these assaults upon Turkey and the West, Russia was turned back. In 1905, Russia turned back from her Japanese enterprise, and the Daily Telegraph, in its account of the Battle of the Yalu, described the defeat of Russia as if it had been the putting “hooks into the jaws” of some great leviathan — the very language of the Prophet. These “turnings-back” were under the regime of the Czars. Bolshevist Russia has in like manner been turned back. In 1920 they nearly smashed Poland, got within ten miles of Warsaw, when — something happened, they were turned back. In 1922, Trotsky’s associate Kemal tried to rush the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus — Kemal was held back. Throughout, the Power which has been used by Providence to turn them back has been that of the latter-day Israel in Britain ... [Note: In more recent history, the Russians (Soviets) were turned back in a humiliating defeat in Afghanistan. The turnings back must be an identifying mark by which we can recognize them.]
Now back to Bertrand L. Comparet: Note the references to armor: for the last 2 centuries this did not seem realistic; but in the last 20 years (at the time Comparet wrote this), all major armies have made use of fiberglass-plastic body armor as protection against steel splinters from bursting shells; so Ezekiel is really up-to-date. The Hebrew word “parash” is translated “horsemen” in this verse, and probably correctly so; and it is noteworthy that Russia has more horse cavalry than all other armies combined, and her Mongolian allies will furnish more. Some have wondered if “parash” might be a suggestion of “parachute troops”; if so, again Russia originated paratroops, and now has over 1,000,000 trained paratroops.
Let us now return to Rev. W. M. H. Milner and see what he has to say about “HORSES AND HORSEMEN”: “Horses” and “Horsemen” are thus mentioned prominently in connection with the Army of Gôg. On the steppes of inner Russia between and beyond the Caspian and Aral Seas are reared multitudes of horses. The Kirghiz who roam the steppes are said to devote themselves entirely to the care of their horses. When it comes to riding they are indefatigable (tireless), and will go hundreds of miles without seeming tired. Their small hardy animals are capable of enduring extremes of cold and heat, and of going long distances without fatigue. For short distances their speed is very fast. “The main instrument,” writes Vambêry, “the one to which the Turcoman gives the preference over all others in his forays beyond all question is his horse, which is really a wonderful creature, prized by the son of the desert more than his wife, more than his children, more than his own life. These fine animals are well worth all the pains bestowed upon them, and the stories of their speed and powers of endurance are far from being exaggerated. Like the Turcomans, the other Cossacks are ever ready for war and swift horsemen on horseback from their youth, they are all warriors.” In Hepworth Dixon’s Free Russia, we are told that “men and boys all ride, and every child appears to possess a horse.” An old Almanach de Gotha gives the number of horses employed in the Russian army at that time, in war-time, as 368,206! So the Russian armies have always been largely composed of HORSES and HORSEMEN. It would appear that the “horses” and “horsemen” of Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal are more symbolic than anything else. It is evidently an identifying mark so we can recognize who they are about whom Ezekiel is prophesying. It would be quite a stretch of the imagination to believe that the Russians would try to invade the United States with an army using cavalry. When we consider the logistics of such an undertaking, it would be similar to putting all those animals, and the food to feed them, on Noah’s ark. If anything, “the horses” are symbolic of the horsepower in the engines of their equipment, and the “horsemen” are the drivers of that equipment. (Note: Tanks are considered cavalry — the U. S. 1st Cavalry is tanks.)
Now we will return to Bertrand L. Comparet: Then the Bible goes on to name Russia’s allies (not just conquered satellites). ‘PERSIA, ETHIOPIA and LIBYA with them; all of them with shield and helmet: GOMER and all his bands; the House of TOGARMAH of the sides of the north, and all his bands; and many people with thee.” (Ezekiel 38:5-6) Persia: modern name, “Iran”; is under heavy Russian pressure and subversion; adjoins Russia’s southern border; a natural target for Russian expansion, both as a warm-water outlet and for its rich oil fields. ETHIOPIA: Hebrew name “Cush” was applied both to Ethiopia (in Africa, south of the Sudan) and to Afghanistan (Hindu Cush) adjoining Russia, and a natural gateway to India; The Russian occupation of Afghanistan now exists in all but name. LIBYA: on the Mediterranean coast of Africa, just west of Egypt; will naturally follow Egypt. Since Bertrand L. Comparet wrote this, Russia experienced a stunning defeat in Afghanistan (Hindu Cush), so the ETHIOPIA spoken of here is probably the African ETHIOPIA. Because the Soviets have spent a lot of energy Communizing Africa, it is only natural that they would play a large part in this thing. You could say that Ethiopian CUSH is already in America with the Blacks, and are already organized with Communist Russia through the NAACP. So we can see where Cush is, and we can know with which side they will take a part. Undoubtedly we may see more of Cush in the coming invasion.
Now back again to Bertrand L. Comparet: For the rest of the roll-call of Red allies, we turn next to Ezekiel 30:3-6.” ... the Day of Yahweh is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen (its called minority rule). And the sword shall come upon EGYPT, and great pain shall be in ETHIOPIA, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down. ETHIOPIA, and LIBYA and LYDIA, and all the mingled peoples (Arabs. In the Strong’s Concordance, #6154 in the Hebrew, it is even pronounced Arab. It’s where we get the term.) and CHUB and the men of THE LAND THAT IS IN LEAGUE shall fall with them by the sword.” CHUB and THE LAND THAT IS IN LEAGUE we cannot yet identify; but EGYPT is already in the Soviet orbit; ETHIOPIA is now the center of Russian Communist subversion in all Africa; LIBYA, as we have seen, adjoins Egypt, and is coming under its influence; LYDIA is now part of TURKEY. (Some of the prophecy in this paragraph may have already happened, or may be in the process of happening, while some of it may be yet to happen.)
Psalm 83:1-8 gives the rest of the Red alliance: “Keep not Thou silence, O Yahweh: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O Yahweh. For lo, Thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against Thy people, and consulted against Thy hidden ones. They have said, ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.’ For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against Thee: The Tabernacles of Edom, and the ISHMAELITES: of MOAB and the HAGARENES: GEBAL and AMMON, and AMALEK: the PHILISTINES with the inhabitants of TYRE; ASSUR also is joined with them.” Communism, and those who created and still control it, are surely Yahweh’s enemies, those who hate Yahshua the Messiah. “Making a tumult” is their favorite occupation. They have “taken crafty counsel” against us; and here is further recognition that the Anglo-Saxon people are the Israel of the Bible — “Thy hidden ones”; for our Israel identity is still hidden from most people. “They have said, ‘come and let us cut them off from being a nation’ ” — that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance — for they are trying desperately to reduce us to a mere conquered province of the United Nations, with all of our national independence gone. The first enemy mentioned is EDOM, and we know that the Edomites are the inventors of Communism and the leaders of it today in all nations. The Jewish Encyclopedia, in its article on “Edom” says that “the Edomites today are found in modern Jewry.” Next, the Scripture mentions the ISHMAELITES, the Arabs; they would naturally be our allies against unrighteous Communism; but our politicians (seeking “Jewish” money and votes in the big cities) have made us the enemies of the Arabs, by pouring out our wealth and our official support for the “Jewish” invaders of Palestine, until the Arabs are reluctantly compelled to recognize us as enemies by our choice, not theirs. MOAB, GEBAL, AMMON, and PHILISTINES and TYRE are all found within the territories of Arab nations; THE HAGARENES would also be either Arab or Egyptian, for Hagar was an Egyptian, the mother of Ishmael. AMALEK was one of the Edomite-”Jewish” tribes. Finally, ASSUR, the Assyrians: after the fall of Assyria, the survivors fled into what is now southwest Russia; and several prophecies about the Assyrians are now being fulfilled by Russia.
Let us now go back over these verses, for they have far more significance than just a roll-call. Surely, as Ezekiel 30:3 says, today is “the time of the heathen.” By their numbers, they now completely rule the United Nations; we crawl humbly on our belly before them, vainly imploring their approval of our efforts to forestall the catastrophe they are promoting; we impoverish our own taxpayers to pour billions of dollars into fattening and strengthening our enemies, ruining our own industries by building and subsidizing the industries of the heathen nations and admitting their products into our country with little or no tariff protection for our own workmen. (If Bertrand L. Comparet were still living, and could see how far our industries have been removed to foreign lands and how we can hardly find anything made in America on the shelves of stores, even he would be amazed.) Continuing again with Bertrand L. Comparet: “All the mongrel people” — the mixed breeds of Asia and Africa and India, who have but one thing in common, their bitter hatred of the White Man: they will ally themselves with anything which promises them that they can pillage and rape in the lands of the White Man. All these nations so far listed will be true allies of Russia, fighting for the loot which Russia promises them — unlike the enslaved satellite nations of Eastern Europe, which are unwilling to destroy the free nations which are their own last hope of rescue. Why are the European satellite nations not listed here? Because their part is in the revolt among the Russian hordes, which is discussed separately ...
The 38th, chapter [of Ezekiel] goes on, “Thus saith the Sovereign Yahweh: It shall come to pass, that AT THE SAME TIME shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: And thou shalt say, ‘I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, to take a spoil, and to take a prey:’ to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.” ....This certainly can’t refer to the flea-bitten poverty of the peoples of the Near East, ... Who is this wealthy nation?
Here are the clues Ezekiel gives in this 38th chapter: — “In the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely, all of them ... And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates ... to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land ... And thou shalt come up against My people Israel, as a cloud to cover the land:” In one sense, this has already come true. Inasmuch as the “Jews” own and control the airwaves of the United States with radio and television, you might say that these airwaves are like a cloud covering the land. Back to Bertrand L. Comparet:
First, “the land that is brought back from the sword”: this is not true of Palestine, which is an armed camp, ready to erupt into war at any moment; and Zechariah 12:2-3 says that Palestine and Jerusalem shall be “a cup of trembling” and “a burdensome stone” — nothing peaceful about that. But the United States is “a land brought back from the sword”: the last major war on our soil was a century ago; and even the Indian wars ended about 70 years ago. We do “dwell safely” in “unwalled villages” and “are at rest”; but this has not been true of Palestine for 2,000 years, and is not true of Palestine now: they dwell in fear behind barbed-wire entanglements, wondering when the next raid will come. We are a nation “gathered out of many people — brought forth out of the nations.” We have “gotten cattle and goods” — the principle forms of wealth in Ezekiel’s time; not only are we the wealthiest nation in the world, but we can even be literal about it; part of our wealth does consist of tremendous numbers of cattle, and we have more “goods” of practically any kind than any other nation. [We are called a “have nation.”] This wealth is what makes us the target for the attack. Even “the desolate places that are now inhabited” fit us, for it describes our great Southwest quarter, desolate until we reclaimed its parched lands with irrigation. “The mountains of Israel which have been always waste” also identifies us. Note that this doesn’t say “desolate”, for our mountains are not desolate; it says “waste”. “Waste” means “unused”, “unoccupied”. Our mountains were “always waste” until we occupied them, for the Indians put them to no use. It would not fit the mountains of Palestine, however, for they have been inhabited for dozens of centuries ...
What form will the attack take? Again, the attack will be partly from the air, for Ezekiel says, “And thou shalt come up against MY people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land.” But there will be a land attack, for Ezekiel says, “And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company and a mighty army.” Now we know that Russia has more horse cavalry than all the other armies of the civilized world put together; and because of the general lack of roads good enough for mechanized forces, she uses horse-drawn equipment to a great extent. Also, the nomadic peoples of Inner and Outer Mongolia and Sinkiang, all adjoining Russia’s southeastern border, are horsemen — and they would certainly join in the great looting expedition into the world’s wealthiest nation. For some time, our Air Force Intelligence Officers have known of the great fleets of invasion barges in ports of Siberia and Manchuria. Obviously, they are being massed there for a purpose. If the hordes of Asia could be landed on the coast of southern Alaska and Canada, they would consider the conditions there no hardship, but paradise indeed compared to what they are used to in most of Asia. They would need very little supplies other than ammunition, for they would live off the land and live better than at home. And nomadic warriors dispersed through the vast forest of the western Canadian mountains would be very hard, indeed, to hunt down and destroy. With our great production centers of Detroit and Cleveland for machine tools, Pittsburgh and Gary for iron and steel, Chicago as a great central hub of transportation, and the Puget Sound region with its Naval Bases and aircraft factories — with all these devastated by treacherous rocket attacks and air raids, with many coastal cities atom-bombed by rockets launched from Russian submarines; with this damage done to us overnight without warning, Russia may well feel that she can launch her land army attack with a large chance of success. Our capacity to equip large forces will be, for a time, at low ebb. If we keep such forces as we have for our own defense, Europe will fall for lack of our assistance; while if we send our troops abroad to defend the rest of civilization, we will be weak at home when the Asiatic hordes roll in like a flood in our northwestern States. From a purely materialistic point of view, it is a cleverly planned strategy.
I will have to admit that Bertrand L. Comparet has painted quite a grand scenario. I have no doubt that he put a lot of time and study into this message with the desire to do whatever he could to wake America up. Although Comparet did a very excellent job, I am convinced, with much study and prayer, this coming attack from Russia and her hordes will come at a different place, in a different manner and under different circumstances than Comparet has suggested. I think, though, that Bertrand L. Comparet should be commended for the excellent job he has done in many ways. After we have set the background about this attack, I will give you my scenario on how and where this may all take place using the Bible as my guide.
Now we shall get back to Bertrand L. Comparet: Note the weapons used [by Yahweh]: one is the tremendous forces of nature, which will break up their organization and send them fleeing in panic in all directions. Another is mutiny among the armies of the satellite nations. Russia has raised Red armies among all the conquered countries; but now she faces a dilemma: if she leaves them at home while she sends Russian armies out to war, not only will Russia be weakened by having to bear all the losses, but also the Satellite countries will seize the opportunity to revolt at home, as did the Hungarian Red Army; therefore, to make them bear the losses, and to get them away from their lands so they can’t liberate their own peoples, she will put them in the invading armies. But, again, in the confusion of battle, the Satellite armies will mutiny and attack the Russians. At least twice before, Yahweh has used this device to destroy enemy armies: Judges 7:22 tells how, when Gideon attacked the Midianites at night, in the confusion “Yahweh set every man’s sword against his fellow,” and they destroyed each other; again 1 Samuel 14:20 tells how Yahweh used this method against the Philistines — “every man’s sword was against his fellow, and there was a very great confusion.” This type of thing will be used against the enormous hordes of Russia and China and the Satellite armies. This is confirmed by Haggai 2:21-22: “I will shake the heavens and the earth; and I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; I will overthrow the chariots and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders will come down, every one by the sword of his brother.” This paragraph makes a lot of sense and we will continue with Comparet:
Another of Yahweh’s weapons is “pestilence and blood”: epidemic disease and infected wounds. Because sanitation is unknown among most Asiatics, pestilence will spread like wildfire among them. Also, the weapon of weather: “I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people with him, an overflowing rain,” Transportation will bog down hopelessly in the bottomless mud; flooded streams will block all progress, even all retreat, while supplies run out and hunger takes its toll. The stormy skies will prevent any help from Russia’s air fleets, scattered and destroyed by the fury of the storm. Next, “great hailstones”: it is not certain whether this really means “hailstones” or “stones from heaven” — meteors. That it could be meteors is evident from the fact that, on Aug. 15, 1951, what the Iranian newspapers called “a downpour” of meteors on the south Iranian city of Shiraz wrecked 62 buildings, killed 12 persons and injured 19 more. The Book of Joshua 10:11 records that Yahweh rained meteors upon an Amorite army and slaughtered them. However, if “hailstones” be the correct translation, there are many historic instances of armies halted, and even defeated, by hailstones, even as recently as 1895. And in Job 38:22-23, Yahweh ask Job “Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? Or hast thou seen the treasures of the HAIL, WHICH I HAVE RESERVED AGAINST THE TIME OF TROUBLE, AGAINST THE DAY OF BATTLE AND WAR? Several times in recent years, our American newspapers recorded instances of hailstones up to the size of baseballs, easily capable of killing a man hit by one. And finally, among the weapons, “Fire and brimstone”, which is sulphur. This probably refers to volcanic eruptions accompanying the great earthquake, as outbursts of fire and sulphur fumes are common in volcanic eruptions; gas-masks would be no protection against the sulphur dioxide fumes.
What is the result of Yahweh’s defense of us? The 39th chapter of Ezekiel is pretty well badly translated in your King James Version, as it suggests that 1/6 of the Russian forces escape, while the Hebrew is clear that none of them will escape. The Hebrew reads, “And thou, son of Adam, prophesy concerning Gog, and say, Thus saith the Sovereign Yahweh: I am against thee, O Gog, Prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and I shall turn thee back, and lead thee, and cause thee to come up from the sides of the north, and bring thee in against the mountains of Israel. And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, yea, thine arrows out of thy right I cause to fall. On the mountains of Israel thou fallest, THOU AND ALL THY BANDS AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WITH THEE”. The slaughter is so great that we shall be seven months gathering up and burying the dead. The 32nd. chapter of Ezekiel describes the final result: “Son of, Adam, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them down, — into the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down into the pit. — There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are round about him; all of them uncircumcised (contemptible), slain by the sword, though they caused terror in the land of the living. — There is Edom, her kings and all her princes, which with their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword; they will lie with the uncircumcised (contemptible), and with them that go down to the pit. There be the princes of the north, all of them. ...”
Finally, in the 39th chapter of Ezekiel, Yahweh says, “So will I make My Holy (set apart) Name known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let them pollute My Holy Name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am Yahweh, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Sovereign Yahweh: this is the Day of which I have spoken. — And I will set My glory among the nations (tribes) [of Israel], and all the nations (tribes) [of Israel] shall see My Judgment that I have executed, and My hand that I have laid upon them. — Therefore, thus saith the Soverign Yahweh: Now I will bring again the captives of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole House of Israel, and will be jealous for My Holy Name. — Neither will I hide My face any more from them: for I have poured out My Spirit upon the House of Israel, saith the Sovereign Yahweh.”
While it is true that incredible brilliance of treachery among our politicians in high office have built up the power of Communism beyond the ability of ordinary means to combat it, it is also true that the greatest weapons are those in the hands of Yahweh, and that He has promised to use them in our defense. Isn’t it comforting to know that THIS IS YOUR MIGHTY ONE?
A Different Scenario On Ezekiel 38 and 39
At this point, we have discussed in detail much of the background of these two chapters and we have pretty well answered the question of, WHO? Before we consider what might be a good rendition or translation of this Scripture for these two chapters, we will consider the question of, Where may all this take place? In doing this, we are going to research some Hebrew words, which to my knowledge, have never been commented on in these related chapters. To understand the 38th and 39th chapters of Ezekiel, we are going to have to know a little bit about the 37th chapter which is about “the dry bones.” The 11th verse is the key verse in understanding this chapter. It reads: (and this is the King James Version) “Then he said unto me, Son of Adam, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.” This chapter is about the formation of the United States Of America with all of the tribes of Israel. It is a time when the breach which happened at the time of Jeroboam of the splitting of the kingdom of Israel between Ephraim and Judah (not the “Jews”) is repaired.
Knowing this, then, we are interested in the “valley” that contained the “dry bones”, Ezekiel 37:1,2. If you don’t understand that the “valley” spoken of in these two verses of the 37th chapter is descriptive of the formation of the United States, then, it is hard to find another place in the world to place this “valley of dry Bones.” We shall go now to the Strong’s Concordance for its meaning. The number is 1237 in the Hebrew: bik-aw’; from 1234; properly a split, i.e. a wide level valley between mountains: plain, valley. Another way of putting it could be a wide plain between two ranges of mountains which describes the North American geography very well.
Now let’s read Ezekiel 37:1,2 with this in mind, 1 The hand of Yahweh was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of Yahweh, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones. 2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. There is another “valley” in Ezekiel 39:11 which is entirely a different kind of valley. This valley in Ezekiel 39:11 is called, “the valley of passengers”, and the Strong’s Concordance number is 1516. Before we go to Strong’s, and see why this valley is so different, let’s read this Scripture, Ezekiel 39:11, to get the drift of what is being said here: And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.
Let’s try the Strong’s Concordance and see how the Hebrew describes this “valley.” #1516: gah’ee; probably (by transmission) from the same root as 1466 (abbreviated) ; a gorge (from its lofty sides; hence narrow, but not a gully or winter-torrent):— valley.
You can see the valley, in this case, is not a wide “valley” or “plain” between two mountain ranges, but a “narrow” valley, actually a “gorge”. I have heard it speculated that this “valley” might be the Mississippi River Valley, but, as you can see, the Mississippi River Valley can hardly fit the description of this valley. It seems we have a problem.
You will notice that the valley of the passengers is located, according to Ezekiel, “east of the sea”. but what sea is it speaking of? Remember this sea has to fit somehow in North America geographically. Well, do we have an answer to this one? I have five translations of the Bible that describe this sea as a “dead sea”: The James Moffatt Translation, The Living Bible, The Holy Bible (New Century Version), God’s Word (Bible Translation) and The Amplified Bible. We shall read Ezekiel 39:11 from each one of these five translations:
The James Moffatt Translation
I will give Gog then a famous place for his grave within Israel, the valley of Abârim, east of the Dead Sea; there shall they bury Gog and all his mob, and call it ‘The valley of Gog-mob’!
The Living Bible
And I will make a vast graveyard for Gog and his armies in the Valley of the Travelers, east of the Dead Sea. It will block the path of the travelers. There Gog and all his armies will be buried. And they will change the name of the place to “The Valley of Gog’s Army.”
The Holy Bible (New Century Version)
At that time I will give Gog a burial place in Israel, In the Valley of the Travelers, east of the Dead Sea. It will block the road for travelers. Gog and his army will be buried there, so people will call it The Valley of Gog’s Army.
God’s Word (Bible Translation)
When that day comes, I will give Gog a burial place in Israel. It will be in Traveler’s Valley, east of the Dead Sea. It will block those who travel through the valley. Gog and his whole army will be buried there. So it will be called the valley of Gog’s Troops.
The Amplified Bible
And in that day, I will give to Gog a place for burial there in Israel, the valley of those who pass through on the east side in front of the Dead Sea [the highway between Syria, Petra and Egypt], and it will delay and stop those who pass through. And there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude, and they shall call it the Valley of Hamongog [that is, the multitude of Gog].
You will notice that The Amplified Bible places this Dead Sea, “the highway between Syria, Petra and Egypt.” This is a common mistake for those who don’t understand that this prophesy is supposed to happen in the United States of America (modern Israel). So if you try to place this “sea” in old Palestine, it will present a problem. Nevertheless, The Amplified Bible has a very good note at the bottom of the page 978 concerning this verse, that is, if we properly apply it to the United States of America:
The number of dead bodies left, after the great catastrophe which God will send upon Gog and his hosts, as here described, would necessarily amount to several million. Their graves would naturally interfere with traffic on the interstate highway. The dead will not be slain in battle. God will slay them by a great cosmic catastrophe (38:18-23). And not some, but “all” of Gog’s multitude will die then (39:4, 11): before they have had a chance to use their weapons they will be struck from their hands (39:3). The one-sixth of the horde from the north will be left alive, as the King James Version says (39:2), is without noted exception conceded to be a mistaken translation by all authorities of modern times.
Now, just what is a dead sea? Obviously, it is a sea with so much salt in it that there is no life (at least to speak of) in it. I can, just as I am writing this, picture you with your eyes protruding out, you have probably already guessed The Great Salt Lake in Utah. If the Great Salt Lake is the answer, then, there has to be a gorge somewhere just east of it.
If you have a Rand McNally Road Atlas, and turn to Utah, you will notice a “Flaming Go/spanrge National Recreation Area” in the southwestern area of Wyoming about 130 miles east of the Great Salt Lake. Can this Flaming Gorge in southwestern Wyoming be the place? Let’s see if it will. It does fit the description east of the Dead Sea. The next question might be asked: Why is it called “the valley of passengers”?
The word “passenger” comes from a Hebrew word aw-bar’ which means to cross over. The location we are speaking of, Flaming Gorge on the Green river, is only a short distance from the Continental Divide and there are mountain peaks in that area in excess of 8,000 feet. Could it mean to “cross over” the mountain pass or “cross over” the Continental Divide, a pass or valley of crossing over? So it would appear the word “cross over” would be very fitting here. And that brings up another thing: This is all supposed to happen on “the mountains of Israel”, Ezekiel 39:2, 4, 17. The “mountains” spoken of here is found in Strong’s Concordance under #2022 and means a mountain or range of hills. So you see, this area being in the mountains fits very well, especially when you consider it to be in a mountain pass.
Now most all of the translations, just about, use the phrase “valley of passengers”, which would appear to indicate travelers of some type, but the word seems to indicate a mountain pass of some kind. If the word “passenger” also means “travelers”, then, we have some more exciting things to consider about this area: (1) It is very near the Oregon Trail which was used as a conveyance in our early American History. They did pass through or “cross over” the Green River Valley at Fort Bridger, Wyoming. Remember, Flaming Gorge is on the Green River? The Oregon Trail was the first conveyance used, therefore, you could call them travelers or passengers.
Also the first continental railroad passed through this area and is still used, though improved, to this day. In the World Book Encyclopedia under the heading “Railroad to the Pacific”, it says: The gold rush of 1849 coupled with the newly adopted railroad land-grant policy and the prospect of expanding trade with the Far East, speeded the development of the West.
During the 1850’s there was much agitation for a railroad along the 32nd parallel — from Charleston, S.C. to San Diego, Calif., through Montgomery. Vicksburg, Shreveport, and El Paso. The federal government bought from Mexico 29,640 square miles of land in southern New Mexico and Arizona, known as the Gadsden Purchase, to provide a route entirely within United States territory for such a railroad. But when the Civil War broke out, the 32nd parallel route was temporarily abandoned. Planners adopted the central, or 42nd parallel route, extending westward from Omaha Nebr., along the Platte River and through Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada to the West Coast at San Francisco Bay.
In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued an executive order fixing the eastern boundary of the Union Pacific Railroad on the Iowa border, near Omaha. The state of California had previously chartered the Central Pacific Railroad to build a line eastward from Sacramento to meet the Union Pacific. In July, 1865, the first rail of the Union Pacific was laid near Omaha.
Rails and crossties had to be shipped from the East and Midwest. Rails, locomotives, and other equipment for building the Central Pacific from Sacramento eastward had to be sent by ship around Cape Horn.
The Wedding of the Rails. Thousands of Chinese coolies (laborers) toiled to push the railroad eastward from Sacramento around and through rugged mountain ranges and across the desert lands of Nevada. Other thousands of hardy Irishmen, Scots, Germans, and Scandinavians, along with thousands of veterans of the Civil War, carried the rails of the Union Pacific westward at a speed never before equaled. There was intense rivalry between the two great construction forces as they approached Utah. Each day they came several miles closer to their meeting.
Finally, on May 10, 1869, the tracks of the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific were joined at a point called Promontory, in the Promontory Mountains north of the Great Salt Lake ... Then, between the noses of two locomotives, a dramatic scene took place. A golden spike was driven as a symbol of the completion of the first chain of railroads to span the North American continent.
You will notice that this first coast to coast railroad line went through “Wyoming”. This is in the same location very near “Flaming Gorge”. From this, you can see, why this railroad line through this mountain pass might be called “the valley of passengers.” So we can see that this Flaming “Gorge” in Wyoming fits the description of the location where Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal will meet their coming Judgment by Yahweh with fire and brimstone.
Now that we have found a place that fits the description of Ezekiel’s Prophesy, I would like to present a scenario of how it might happen.
A Scenario Of How Ezekiel 38 and 39 May Happen
At the time of this writing (my first writing, this issue is my second), the Oklahoma bombing took place a little over two months ago. Today is June 30, 1995. The bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklakoma took place April 19, 1995. Apparently, the bombing was designed to set up a condition in the United States to increase the Federal police powers for the creation of a totalitarian police state. I will not get into that to any extent, except to say that maybe this time the Government (and the powers behind it) isn’t fooling very many people with this one. It appears like, maybe this time, the whole thing may be backfiring on the perpetrators. But we shouldn’t sell the enemy short on this one. I believe that the enemy, out of desperation, may well decide, if they cannot create a police state from the inside, they will try to do so from the outside. As a matter of fact, if the people of the United States wake up about this one, the enemy (the “Jews” being themselves part of Gog and Magog) may have to move, out of desperation, or have their whole plan for world domination blow up in their faces. Even at this point, the state of Oklahoma is going to initiate its own independent investigation of the bombing, and will probably pressure the Feds (FBI and ATF) to come clean on this one. This may just be the thing that will cause them (Gog and Magog) to think the “evil thought”, Ezekiel 38:10. In other words, they may direct Gog, Magog, Meshech, and Tubal (whom they already control) to invade the United States and overthrow the police powers that exist, and set up their own United Nations Police to control the United States. Naturally, they would promise the Communist hordes all the booty and plunder (rape and whatever) they wanted. They would be promised all that they could steal. The Scripture, in no uncertain terms, indicates that Gog is coming for spoil. (It is now March 7, 2000, and I still believe our satanic enemy will be right there to open our backdoor for them, although I am not certain what the hooks in the jaws might be. Since my first writing, I have learned the Chinese now own our major railways along with an agreement to control the Panama Canal. Not only this, they now own shipyards on our west coast.)
Now this is how I propose it all might happen. First of all, we have to take into account the “GiG-antic” size of such an operation. I don’t believe, offhand, that this could be a total parachute from the air attack, although this may be part of the operation. This attack is going to take many large ship loads of men and equipment. (At this writing, (my first) there is documented proof that many train loads of equipment have already been shipped into the United States and are in storage awaiting the men to operate them.) This will be no small operation!!! I believe, also, that it will take the form of a sneak attack and we will not know about it until they are already here. If this is true, there is only one way that it could happen. I suggest that fifty to one hundred merchant ships (and if the men are going to number in the millions it will be a lot more than this) will enter the United States at Seattle, San Francisco and maybe even Long Beach, California. (Do you suppose that this may be why they are closing down some naval bases in preparation for such a move?) I suggest further, then, they will off-load these men and equipment and transfer them to sealed boxcars and make up several trains in excess of 100 cars, and they will make their way to “Flaming Gorge” in Wyoming. (They could transfer the men and equipment already enclosed in container cars.) How many trains would it take to be equal to maybe fifty or one hundred ships (and probably much more)? It is interesting to note that these would be the logical routes for these trains to take in order to make their way eastward. By the time they would arrive in the area of Flaming Gorge in Wyoming, there would be train after train for maybe up to fifty miles or more on both sides of the tracks . There might be several trains diverted to sidetracks in that area as they climb to higher and higher altitudes. Then, you can see, how timely an earthquake would be to block them from going forward or backward. They would be trapped in the pass of “cross over” on the “mountains” of Israel. Just how Yahweh handles it from here on is anyone’s guess, but there are none to survive!!! At this point, being blocked from both directions, they would try to take to the roads and highways, and this would be like, “a cloud to cover the land.” If this is all true, it will be the biggest Trojan horse operation ever pulled (almost) off!!! There is one other thing: Once the enemy has put foot on our soil, it will be impossible for us to use atomic weapons against him as we would be destroying our own people. We might reciprocate by using them against their homelands though, but will they find some of our people to use as hostages to prevent it? This type of attack is the only way the enemy could come to our shores totally undetected. This way, they could evade all satellites and radar, and it is still the only way they could move that large amount of equipment as described in the Scripture.
The Ethnic Cleansing of GOG AND MAGOG
We know, by these two chapters, that there will be no survivors of Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal along with their allies after this attack. But how about the rest of Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal which represent the “Jews” of today? Will they not also be destroyed at the command of Yahweh? Yes, there are passages of Scripture that prophesy such a thing. What do you think will happen when our people of Israel finally wake up and discover that the “Jews” have let Gog and Magog in our backdoor? We’re talking about another Pearl Harbor, only on a scale thousands of times greater. We’re talking about the largest scale Trojan horse to be pulled off ever, in world history! Then, all the non-Israel peoples that have been directed by Satan (the “Jews”), and brought into this country for the express purpose of intermixing with our White-Adamic-Israelite race will suddenly realize they are next on Yahweh’s list. They will not have to be asked to leave; after seeing what happens to Gog and Magog, they will suddenly not want to stay. It will be impossible to talk fast enough to keep them here. We may, though, have to insist they stay long enough to help bury the hordes of Russia and China along with all their allies. Whether we like it or not, Yahweh has declared in his Word that they will have to leave. As a matter of fact, once the non-Israelites come face to face with Yahweh, they won’t be able to abide His Presence, and as a result, the United States of America will become a 100%, totally White nation. When all of this happens, you will see one of the greatest stampedes in all history to make their way out of this country. Also, the other White Israel lands, like South Africa, will experience a very similar circumstance. This time, the Israelites will not have to sprinkle blood on the “lintels” or “door posts” for protection from the “destroyer” as Yahshua took care of that two thousand years ago. Yes there will be a time of ETHNIC CLEANSING in all of Israel!! You may not like what I am saying, but it wasn’t I who wrote the Scripture. Therefore, if you object to all of this, you will have to take it up with The Almighty!
Revelation 20:1-10 on Gog and Magog
A study of Gog and Magog without an investigation of Revelation 20:1-10 would not be complete. This passage is made up of, or about, Satan (the “Jews”) being cast into the bottomless pit of influence for a symbolic thousand years (actually from the time of (Christ) or Yahshua until 1776). And while the “Jews” (Satan) are rendered impotent politically, monetarily and religiously, another religious system arises that causes much martyrdom and an image is set up that they should receive the mark of (the Universal Church). Anyone who has studied Church history can understand this. Then, it goes on to mention the first resurrection momentarily, and then returns to Satan with Gog and Magog again. Then, after the symbolic thousand years are ended, Satan (the “Jews”) are “loosed” to “deceive” the “nations” and to “gather” Gog and Magog “to battle” “the beloved city” (The White people of America).
In reading this passage, most everyone projects this Scripture into the future, but this casting out of Satan took place at the time of Christ (Yahshua). Here is a typical comment out of The Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible by Merrill C. Tenney: “Gog appears again in Revelation 20:7-9, where Satan is depicted after the millennium as gathering the nations of the whole earth, that is, Gog and Magog, against the saints and beloved city, but they are destroyed and cast into the lake of fire.” At the time of Christ (Yahshua), Satan (the “Jews”) were rendered impotent, as far as deception was concerned, and they did not gain any great influence until the time of the Illuminati (1776), and since that time, Satan (the “Jews”) have regained their control over the nations. It has developed into the United Nations which is attempting to control the entire world (“four quarters of the earth”). When you understand this, it is so simple! There is still one thing to happen, at least in part, and that is the final battle of this war with the saints (White Israel race) which we have discussed at length with the 38th and 39th chapters of Ezekiel.
Let’s now read Revelation 20:1-10, and we have to understand that this Scripture is speaking in symbols and allegories: 1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. (Note: verse 7 is a continuation of verse 3.) 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
What I now want to do is: I want to show you why we sometimes get confused when we read the Bible. This passage, we just read, is a good example of what I am speaking of. Verses 1, 2 and 3 are speaking of Satan. Verse 4 changes the subject and then continues with verses 5 and 6 on another subject. Verse 7 then returns to the subject of Satan and continues through verses 8, 9 and 10. Now let’s see if we can clear up this confusion by temporarily leaving out verses 4, 5 and 6. 1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season .... 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. We can see from this that this will be no small invasion of Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal into the United States. We are talking about something very serious that is going to happen in this country in the very near future!!! Maybe it will not happen exactly as described herein, but you can be sure, it will happen!!!
Now A Rendering of Ezekiel 38 & 39
Ezekiel 38: 1 A message from Yahweh came again to me saying to this effect: 2 Son of Adam! set your face against Gog, in the Land of the Mongol, Prince of Rosh (ruler of Russia), Moscow (Meshech), and Tobolsk (Tubal), and say in your forecast: 3 Thus saith Yahweh thy El, I am opposed to you, O Gog! Prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal: 4 And I will turn you back and put hooks into your jaws. And I will bring you and all your army out, riding in vehicles, all of them clothed most perfectly, a great assembly with buckler and shield, all of them swordsmen: 5 Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet; 6 Gomer and all his bands; the house of Togarmah from the recesses of the north, and all his bands; and many peoples with you. 7 Be prepared, be alert, be wide-awake; prepare for yourself and your allies that are gathered with you; and be a guard to them. 8 Far toward the latter of years, you will come up against the Land who gained their Independence by the sword and whose residents are gathered out of many clans on the mountains of Israel which have always (in the past) been a continual waste. And they shall dwell safely, all of them. 9 And you shall gain altitude (as you make your way into the mountains) as you rush in like a storm, hiding under concealment into the land; you and your hordes and many peoples mobilized around you. 10 Yahweh proclaims that when that day comes, you shall consider an evil plan. 11 And you will say, I will make my way into the land of unwalled villages. I will go to those who live leisurely, who feel secure without any bars or
gates, 12 In order to plunder and spoil, and to loot a valuable prize; to control the waste places that are now inhabited by peoples gathered out of many clans, which have acquired cattle and possessions, that live throughout the land. 13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish, and all the young lions, shall say to you: Have you come to take a spoil? Have you gathered your hordes to steal a prize? to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and possessions, to spoil a great spoil? 14 Therefore, son of Adam. prophesy and say unto Gog, So proclaims Yahweh: In that day when My people of Israel live safely, Shall you not understand it? 15 And you shall come from your place out of the recesses of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding in vehicles; a great company; a mighty army. 16 And you will come against My People Israel hiding undercover and in concealment into the land. It shall be in the latter days; and I will bring you against My Land, so that the heathen may know I exist, then I shall be sanctified (set apart) in you before their eyes, O Gog! 17 Yahweh El proclaims: Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days, by the hand of My servants, the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days and years, to bring you against them? 18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the Land of Israel, proclaims Yahweh, that My fury shall come up in My face. 19 And in My jealousy, in the fire of My wrath, I have spoken. Surely, in that day there shall be a great quaking in the Land of Israel. 20 And the fish of the sea, and the birds of the heavens, and the beasts of the field, and the creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth, shall quake at My face. And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I shall call for a sword against him on all My mountains, declares Yahweh. Each man’s sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will condemn him with destruction and with blood, and a washing away cleansing rain, and hailstones. I will rain fire and brimstone on him, and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him. 23 And I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself. And I will be known in the eyes of the many nations; and they shall know that I am Yahweh. Ezekiel 39: 1 Lift then your voice, son of Adam, against Gog, and say in your forecast, Thus saith Yahweh, thou Gog, behold I am against you! ruler of Rosh (Russia) Moscow and Tolbolsk. 2 And I will turn you back, and will use a hook with six teeth, and will cause you to come up from the north parts. And I will bring you upon the mountains of Israel. 3 And I will strike your bow out of your left hand; and I will cause your arrows to fall out of your right hand. 4 You shall fall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops, and the people who are with you. Carrion birds of all kinds, and beasts of the field will devour you. 5 You shall fall on the face of the open field, for I have spoken, declares Yahweh. 6 I will send fire to burn up the Mongol and the coast-lands where men live securely - to teach them that I am Yahweh. Then My Holy Name will never die; when the heathen learn that I, Yahweh, love Israel. 7 And I will make My Holy Name known throughout Israel. And I will not let My Holy Name be profaned any more. And the heathen shall know that I am Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel. 8 Behold it is coming, and it shall be done, declares Yahweh; this is the day whereof I have spoken. 9 And the inhabitants of the cities of Israel shall go out and shall set afire and burn the weapons; even the shield and the buckler, the bow and the arrows, and the hand-staff, and the spears. They shall burn them with fire seven years. 10 And they shall not take wood out of the field, and shall not cut down out of the forest, for they shall burn the weapons with fire. And they shall plunder those who plundered them, and rob those who robbed them, declares Yahweh. 11 Then will it be, I will give unto Gog a place, a Remembrance, even a grave, in the Land that he sought- the Valley men pass through, east of the Dead Sea. And they shall bury Gog and all his multitude there, and they shall call it The Valley of the Multitude of Gog. 12 And the house of Israel shall bury them, in order to cleanse the land, seven months. 13 And the people of the land shall bury them: and it will be a famous thing for them when I uphold my honour, proclaims Yahweh. 14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment to go through the land, burying those who remain on the face of the earth, to cleanse it. They will be burying for a period of seven months. 15 And in the course of the search, when anyone sees a human bone, he must put a marker beside it until the burial parties come and bury the bone in The Valley of the Multitude of Gog. 16 And there shall be a city there by the name of Hamonah. So shall they cleanse the land. 17 And to you, son of Adam, proclaims Yahweh: Say to the bird of every wing, and to the beast of the field: Gather yourselves and come; collect yourselves from all around for My sacrifice which I sacrifice for you on the mountains of Israel, so that you may eat flesh and drink blood. 18 You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth; of rams, lambs, goats, and bulls, all of them fatlings of Bashan. 19 And you shall eat until satisfied; and drink blood until drunken of My sacrifice which I have sacrificed, which I have sacrificed for you. 20 And you shall be satisfied at My table, with vehicles and drivers, and mighty men of war, proclaims Yahweh. 21 Thus will I set my honour among the nations, till all see the vengeance I inflict and the heavy hand I lay upon them 22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am Yahweh their El, from that day onward. 23 And the heathen nations shall know that the house of Israel was exiled for their iniquity. because they betrayed Me, so I hid My face from them and gave them into the hand of their enemies. And they fell by the sword, all of them. 24 According to their uncleanness and according to their sins, I have done to them. 25 So Yahweh proclaims thus: Now will I return the captivity of Jacob, and will have mercy on all the entire house of Israel, and I will be jealous for My Holy name. 26 And also after they have born their shame, and all their treachery which they have done against Me, when they dwell on their land securely, and no one terrifies; 27 When I returned them from the peoples, and gathered them out of the hand of their enemies, and am sanctified [set apart] in them in the sight of many nations; 28 Then they shall know that I am Yahweh their El, who exiled them among the nations. But I have gathered them to their own land, and have not left any of them there. 29 And I will not any more hide My face from them; for I have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel, declares Yahweh.
Note: You will notice that I did not quote Ezekiel 38:9, 16 “like a cloud to cover the land” or “as a cloud to cover the land” as you find in most Bibles. Even The Interlinear Bible, Hebrew-Greek-English, by Hendrickson, translates these two verses that way. After some research on the words “cloud” and “cover”, I discovered these words can imply to “hide”, “conceal” or “to act covertly”. Covertly means something done in secret. From the meanings of these two words, you can see why I chose to use the words, “hiding under concealment” and “hiding undercover and in concealment” in the 9th and 16th verses of Ezekiel 38. These two verses only reinforce the idea that this invasion will be done undercover rather than in the open.
Now let’s take a look at the Hebrew meanings for these two words, “cloud” and “cover”: (1) cloud: #6051, aw-nawn’; from 6049; a cloud (as covering the sky), i.e. the nimbus or thunder-cloud: - cloud (y).
In order to understand this one, we are going to have to find out what #6049 means. #6049: aw-nan’; a primitive root: to cover over; figuratively to act covertly, i.e. practice magic: X bring enchanter, Meonemin, observe (-r of) times, soothsayer, sorcerer.
Now we will consider: cover, #3680: kaw-saw’; a primitive root; properly to plump, i.e. fill up hollows; by implication to cover (for clothing or secrecy):- clad self, close, clothe, conceal, cover (self), (flee to) hide, overwhelm.
From the study of the Hebrew meanings of the above words, it is obvious that there can be more than one meaning for them. We could take it as meaning, because of the great number involved, that they would literally cover the entire surface of the United States but I believe, in this case, it is speaking about one great big covert (undercover) operation.
At this point, we have to ask ourselves: Why would the enemy plan something like what has been described here? Well, if you consider that the main objective of the enemy is to destroy the White race by miscegenation (race-mixing), then you can see a twofold objective here: (1) To gain police control of the United States and (2) To bring in all of these Mongol hordes to commit miscegenation with the Whites. We know that the enemy is using political, religious and monetary control to bring about their goal of destroying us, but all these revolve around their racial program.
This Mongol invasion, if pulled off, could be a very dangerous racial tool. Many would go ahead and mix, saying, “these Russians look white like us.” Anyone who would object to such a mixture, knowing the Russians were part Mongol, would be very much vilified. I can just see, in my mind, a protracted concentrated drive, on the part of the Churches, to adopt a Russian baby.
You may not agree with all that I have presented here, but if you have read and studied all the facts I have introduced, you’ll have to admit you now know more about Ezekiel 38 and 39 than you did before! For any of you who think you can portray a better scenario on this prophecy, you certainly are more than welcome to do so! As I said before, I am not a prophet; I only try to understand what the prophets wrote in times past. Exactly when all of these things are going to happen, I cannot precisely say, but you can be sure, being prophesied by the Spirit of Yahweh through the prophets of old, they will happen, and right on Yahweh’s schedule. They will not be premature nor late.
This whole thing is so very serious. The Mongols, in their invasions, have always been noted for killing of the men and then raping the women. I believe this will be the main incentive and purpose for their coming. It is not my object here to violate the White women’s modesty, but you will be their main target. Systematically they will tie you down while one right after another of these repugnant unclean unkempt Mongols will violate your body. Not only yours, but yourSo the house of Israel shall know that I am Yahweh their El, from that day onward/p children, both male and female. I remember seeing, years ago, old paintings of this very sort of thing. You can be quite sure if the Mongol has raped in the past, he certainly will do it again given the opportunity. Yes, they will want valuable articles along with silver and gold, but the main thing they will want is to get their hands on a White woman. This is the “spoil” they will be coming after! If you are not mentally prepared for such an event, if might be advisable to do so, for it is prophesied to be coming our way! There is no other thing which can be so devastating to a woman as being raped. Maybe once you come face to face with it, and you understand who the enemy behind it is, you will no longer consider the “Jews” to be “God’s chosen people.”
If you have not, as yet, discovered that the conspiracy is mainly racial, and the aim is to destroy the White Israel race, you have not studied it enough!!!
SOME AFTERTHOUGHTS ON THIS STORY
It was pointed out to me: (1) that the word “Armageddon” is #717 in the Greek from the Strong’s Concordance, and is derived from the Hebrew words #2022 (Mountain) and #4023 (Rendezvous, a place appointed for meeting), (2) The American Heritage College Dictionary says, “promontory ... 1. A high ridge of land or rock jutting out into a body of water; a headland ... [Lat. promontorium, Alteration (influenced by mons, mont-, mount ...) ...]” Thus Promontory is truly a mountain of rendezvous! (3) Is it symbolic that Mongol laborers got to this point building the railroad? (4) See also Joel 3:14, the definition for “decision” which may have to do with mining gold, digging trenches, threshing (etc...) the gold strike propelled the building of the railroad, but also, with this as predicted burial ground in the future, there will be much more digging going on!
