Rev 20:7-10
And when the thousand years are expired Satan shall be loosed out of his prison. 
And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
And they went up on the breath 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.

Now, the post Millennium Series has started, and this will be the event in the above scriptures will be the first one immediately after 1000 Year of Millennium.

In our last article, we explain that Satan will be bound for 1000 years when the Millennium is taking place on earth, but immediately after the Millennium he will be loosed out of the bottomless pit. 
So, the scenario in the scriptures above shows that Satan is being loosed from his millennial hostage and goes out to deceive nations in the four corners of the earth, but strange as it seems a familiar name appears: Gog and Magog. Now reading Ezekiel 38, this same name appeared. 

Ezekiel 38:1-3
[1]And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
[2]Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
[3]And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal 
(you have to read the whole of Ezekiel 38).

But why does Gog and Magog appears in the Time of Ezekiel and in Our Time

This shows the same spirit of rebellion that worked then is at work now. Just like the spirit of rebellion that works in Genesis 11 for the building of a tower that will reach heaven is still at work now, as it's about to bring about one world government, one world religion and one world currency. Even though the people were scattered all over but that spirit of rebellion is still at work since then to accomplish his mission of Gen 11, but in another version. And this time, the Lord Jesus Christ will allow their plan to come to pass for just few years. 

What's the Difference between Event in Rev 20 and Ezek. 38? 

Now, we'd love to contrast the two events because though carrying the same name (Gog and Magog), the instances are not the same.

1. Ezekiel's battle occurs in the latter part of the great tribulation (the Armageddon) while that of Rev 20 occurs at the end of the millennium.
2. The battle in Ezekiel 38 comes from the north, while that of Rev. 20 comes from the four corners if the earth.
3. There is no mention of Satan in Ezekiel's battle, but in Revelation Satan is seen as the convener and leader of this war.
4. The battle in Ezekiel 38-38 brings Israel back to God (39:21-29)whiles that in Rev 20 destroys all enemies with zero opportunities for repentance. The armies in Rev 20 meet their waterloo as fire comes down from heaven and destroys them. The devil is later cast into the lake of fire.
5. Turkey, Ethiopia, Germany, Libya and Iran join Russia in the battle in Ezekiel's battle while the millennium battle involves all nations.
6. Ezekiel's battle occurs when the truce made by the Antichrist's coalition is broken by Russia( iron and clay separates) and Armageddon occurs.
7. In Ezekiel's battle, Turkey, Ethiopia, Germany, Iran and Libya join Russia to fight Israel. In the Revelation 20 scenario, nations from the four corners are of the earth are involved.
8. One event seems to cut across both battles: fire comes down from heaven and destroys the enemies.

In our next teaching, we shall see what Gog and Magog stand for scripturally and our time, then we move on to the mission of Satan after being loosed from bottomless pit. 

Stay Tuned!
