The Serpent’s Final Doom and the Last Demagog: Gog of Magog
“Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshach and Tubal, and prophesy against him – (Ezk.38:1).
“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 together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 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: 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” – (Rev.20:7-10).
Let me say this immediately. Ezekiel’s prophecy of Gog and Magog in (Ezk.38 & 39) is a double prophecy that covers both the battle of Armageddon at the second coming of Christ and the final battle of all time at the end of the millennium. The world’s final battle is not to be fought at Armageddon – it is separated in time by 1000 years. It’s also the finale of Satan the Serpent and sin. It is Satan’s final attempt to rule the world. It is the final doom of the Serpent.
preached on Armageddon, while so little emphasis has
been placed on this ultimate battle of all battles. The Bible itself refers to
Armageddon much more often than to this final battle of the ages. The reason is
clear, in that so much on earth hinges on Armageddon... the end of the great
tribulation, the second coming of Christ and the glorious millennium introduced
out of it. The battle of Gog and Magog
in (Rev.20) by contrast, has eternity in sharp focus. From that final battle proceeds the fiery
overthrow of sins’ last rebellion and Satan’s final doom in the
It is begun by the releasing of Satan from his 1000 year millennial confinement in the bottomless pit prison. It includes vast hordes of men on earth who have been chafing at the bit, so to speak, at the righteous reign of King Jesus and are ready for rebellion. I believe this satanic army is made up of the children of the Christians. They will give birth to children who have not been born again during the millennium and still have their sin natures. The rule of righteousness during the millennium is one thing, but a heart change is another. There will be outward conformity but not inward reality. It shows that even in this perfect environment man’s sinful nature must be changed – “Ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:7).
objective is to overthrow Emperor Jesus himself. Satan gathered his armies from
the whole earth to try and stop King Jesus from coming at the battle of Armageddon
before the millennium and he tries it again as soon as he’s released from
prison after the 1000 years. You can see that Satan is not rehabilitated or
reformed after his 1000 year sentence. He’s incorrigible – his heart is not
changed. He is still reprobate and godless and he becomes the behind-the-scenes
leader of those people that are also reprobate and godless after 1000 years.
Satan finds millions of people whose hearts are at warfare with God, as his is.
It’s an easy task to cause their rebellious sinful hearts to blaze forth in revolution
of God’s righteous government on earth. This final great army invades the defenseless
Satan fins a human antichrist man like ‘the beast’ to be the visible leader of
his army. He is called ‘Gog’ of the
He will be the last demagog like der fuhrer (The leader). I don’t believe it’s happenstance that ‘Gog’ in our English language means ‘leader’ and dema-gog is an evil leader of the people. It is God showing us Bible truth and shedding light on Gog and Magog.
(Rev.20:7-10) shows us the final revolt and rebellion against the Lord by sinners and Satan. The millennium is a time of testing of man under ideal conditions. Many human hearts remain unchanged and many will turn their backs on Christ and righteous living and will join with Satan. It shows us how terrible the heart of man is. We absolutely need a new heart and to be born again by Christ. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings” – (Jer.17:9,10). This is the last rebellion against a Holy God – never again will there be sin, Satan, or death – we enter the eternal state.
(Ezk.38-39) is a double prophesy pointing to two wars – Gog and Magog I and Gog and Magog II – like WWI and WWII. But I believe the actual names Gog and Magog will be used only in (Rev.20) at the final war. Maybe only the initials G.O.G. or the final demagog’s actual name. But God will bring this name out at the end of the millennium and after about 950 years of ruling and reigning with Christ we’ll be looking for it.

will be like. We have had many political leaders who used flattering lips and a
deceitful tongue in order to seize power and get the people to follow him. We
also call them dictators. Blind leaders of blind people.

ignorance and prejudice. He will use religion also. He will be the opposite of

Jesus Christ is the leader God has chosen to rule planet earth – “Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people” – (Is.55:4). All of Satan’s other pretenders to His throne are evil leaders and demagogs and will never usurp His throne.

important truth – the most important truth of all – “Ye must be born again” –
“Ye must be born of God.” Your evil heart must be changed. You must

eternal life. Don’t trample under foot the precious blood of Christ on
