Scofield Reference Notes

[1] Gog

That the primary reference is to the northern (European) powers, headed up by Russia, all agree. The whole passage should be read in connection with Zech 12:1-4 14:1-9 Mt 24:14-30 Rev 14:14-20 19:17-21, "gog" is the prince, "Magog," his land. The reference to Meshech and Tubal (Moscow and Tobolsk) is a clear mark of identification. Russia and the northern powers have been the latest persecutors of dispersed Israel, and it is congruous both with divine justice and with the covenants (e.g. See Scofield Note: "Gen 15:18" See Scofield Note: "Dt 30:3" that destruction should fall at the climax of the last mad attempt to exterminate the remnant of Israel in Jerusalem. The whole prophecy belongs to the yet future "day of Jehovah" Isa 2:10-22 Rev 19:11-21 and to the battle of Armageddon Rev 16:14 See Scofield Note: "Rev 19:19" but includes also the final revolt of the nations at the close of the kingdom-age. Rev 20:7-9.Ezekiel 38:2 Parallel Commentaries
