Shalom dear Steve:
Thanks for answering so faithfully our questions. I pray that you recover physically & you can earn enough money with our contributions so that your web can still be free. Are we collaborating sufficiently to help you go out from your economic struggles? I hope the answer is yes.
I’m a little confused about the Latter Day’s coming wars. If i correctly understand you state the Gog-Magog war will be a simultaneous attack of an army of 200 million soldiers against both Israel(Western nations) & Judah(the current State of Israel).
My doubt is if this final attack done by Russia , China & Iran with their allies will be an attack against the Western nations & in a different stage another attack against the State of Israel or just one attack toward both at the same time.Could you clarify it , Steve, please?

I am recovering slowly and I thank all for their continued prayers.
I believe the Gog-Magog attack in Ezekiel 38 describes the attack of Russia, China, Iran, etc. vs. the modern nations of the house of Israel. This Gog-Magog alliance is called the “kings of the east” in Revelation 16:12. These “kings” are attacking westward across the Euphrates so they are coming from the region of Iran (part of the Gog-Magog alliance). The Revelation 16:12 attack is headed squarely toward the modern Israelis (“Judah”) and Zechariah 14 is a prophecy about the battle when they get there. I believe these attacks have to be simultaneous because they both trigger Divine intervention (Ezekiel 38:20, 22-23, Ezekiel 39:1-8) and Revelation 16:13-21.)
Notice also that Ezekiel 39:8 and Rev. 16:17 both reach the same point in prophetic time where it is said “It is done.” Jeremiah 30:3-7 also show that Jacob’s Trouble affects both Israel and Judah (all the tribes of Israel) at the same time in the latter days. Daniel 11:40-44 ties this together as well. This prophecy is for the “time of the end” and it is climaxed when the final “king of the north” will be simultaneously attacked from the north and east just prior to Divine intervention at the end of this age and the resurrection of the dead (Daniel 12:1-4). The “north” and “east”‘ are the directions from which Israel and Judah are attacked (Ezek. 38:15, Rev. 16:12) at the end of this age. This correlation also indicates the final “king of the north” will be the same world figure called “the beast”‘ in the book of Revelation.
