"Gog and Magog"
in the Bible
Surely concern from China and Russia can be appreciated as most
Bible evidence points to those countries as being the core location of
the “Gog and Magog” of Bible predictions that come against Israel
during World War III.

“Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be
released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations
which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to
gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of
the sea {such a large number speculates on China, location of
the largest population in the world}.  They went up on the breath
of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the
beloved city.  And fire came down out of heaven and devoured
them.”  (Revelation 20:7-9)

1.  YOUNGS ANALYTICAL CONCORDANCE, written long ago and
without any particular Bible prophesy axe to grind, and which by
nature is always looking at specific scriptures and must remain in
total Bible context, writes the following when the Bible word “Magog”
is looked up, of course in alphabetical order:
(1) The second son Japheth, BC 2340, Genesis 10:2 and I
Chronicles 1:5; and; (2) The descendants of Magog and their land,
called Scythia, in the North of Asia and Europe.
And for the second usage of the word “Magog”, the concordance
cites the verse quoted above from Revelation 20:8 along with two
references from Ezekiel, 38:2 and 39:6.

2.  Moving carefully on what we can know for certain without
speculation, we quickly look at Ezekiel 38:2 and 39:6, in total context
of Ezekiel.

3.  “Gog” has many more references in the Bible per the
concordance, besides the one quoted above from Revelation, there
are 9 more, all from Ezekiel:  38:2, 38:3, 38:14, 38:16, 38:18, 39:1
(twice), and 39:11 (twice).

NOTE:  It should be duly and immediately noted that only Revelation
beings “God” and “Magog” together in one verse, and the intent in
Revelation 20:7-9 is obvious with the mentioning of Gog and
Magog.  In the custom of all the Bible, it says the same thing in two
ways as sort of a modifier, it is the whole world of nations--that is,
from the four corners of the earth at least partly described by the
extent of Gog and Magog that will come against: (1) the camp of the
saints; and (2) the beloved of God city, Jerusalem.

4.  According to Revelation 20:7-9, which is primarily all that we can
know for certain from the Bible about World War III, is that it hardly
matters where Gog and Magog are in that Satan goes out to deceive
all the nations, the whole world except the camp of the saints and
Jerusalem.
