Through Christ, it is now possible for divorced Ephraim (the entire Northern Kingdom) to become the prophesied multitude of nations – the fullness of Gentiles – and not just be scattered among them. That’s right! The fullness of Gentiles refers to the House of Israel (Ephraim) that was scattered and completely absorbed by the world’s Gentile nations and, thus, became Gentiles themselves.
The Battle of Gog and the Battle of Armageddon are not two separate events. These are just different names to the same concluding campaign of the Antichrist or Gog’s Apocalypse War. In fact, this final battle is the very same scenario—with a few variations—that is repeated by the majority of the Old Testament’s minor and major prophets, by Christ Jesus in the four Gospels, and in the New Testament’s Scriptures written by apostles Paul and John. For this reason, it also should be irrefutable that the same evil end-time world ruler of the revived Islamic Caliphate system of the revived Turkish-Ottoman Empire not only is called Gog but also the Antichrist, as well as the Assyrian, the King of the North, and the Little Horn. For sure, this evil end-time world leader is known by many other appellations. Additionally, it should be irrefutable that the Battles of Gog and Armageddon are the same event that also has different names.
In the Holy Bible, when God called a person or a city’s name twice, each occasion immediately was elevated to one of great biblical importance to that person or the city involved. Furthermore, this biblical importance also affects those of us who have come to Christ by Grace through Faith. Indeed, whenever God is using the double salutation, it is because He wants to get our attention, because He has something vitally important to say to us.
Contrary to popular opinion, the Ten Virgins’ parable is not about Israel being grafted back onto the Olive Tree just in time to rule with Christ during His millennial reign. The Ten Virgins’ parable is about all believers (Jews and Gentiles) who live and die on Earth during the CHURCH Age (cf. Matthew 25:1-13).
Will the current peace process in the Middle East yield lasting peace? The answer to this question is a resounding NO. Moreover, the everlasting true “peace” that Jesus the Christ will bring about only can happen through a bloody and violent conquest.
