sign is predicted to a near future, according to the prophecies from Ezekiel,
in chapters 38 and 39.
According to these prophecies, Israel will suffer
an attack from Russia and his alliance. We know that this fact belongs to
a near future due to the following reasons:
Israel has never suffered any invasion from Russia
comes after Ezekiel 37, that predicted the creation
of State of Israel
There are also
other reasons that prove the country is identified as Russia
Let's read Ezekiel
The word of the LORD came to me:
"Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of
Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him
and say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am
against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.
4 I will turn
you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your
horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small
shields, all of them brandishing their swords.
Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields
also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the
far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.
"'Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered
about you, and take command of them.
After many days you will be called to arms. In future years
you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered
from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate.
They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety.
You and all your troops and the many nations with you will
go up, advancing like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land.
"'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On that day
thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme.
You will say, "I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I
will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls
and without gates and bars.
I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the
resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and
goods, living at the center of the land."
Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her
villages will say to you, "Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your
hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods
and to seize much plunder?"
"Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog: 'This is
what the Sovereign LORD says: In that day, when my people Israel are living in
safety, will you not take notice of it?
You will come from your place in the far north, you and
many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty
16 You will
advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to
come, O Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me
when I show myself holy through you before their eyes.
" 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Are you not the
one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel? At that
time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them.
This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the
land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD.
In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time
there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.
The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts of
the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on
the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be
overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.
I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains,
declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man's sword will be against his brother.
I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed;
I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on
his troops and on the many nations with him.
And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will
make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am
The verse 2 of Ezekiel 38 talks about "Gog, of the
land of Magog". The genalogy of Gog appears in Genesis 10:2
and also in 1 Chronicles 1:5:
10:2 "The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and
of the land of Magog", according to historians, corresponds to Russians,
to people descending from barbarians. In addition, Ezekiel 39:2
says that Cog and Magog are from North. When looking at world map, we can
clearly see that Moscu is located straight up from Jerusalem. So, Gog and Magog
correspond to Russia.

According to Ezekiel 39, at the invasion moment God
will protect Israel in such a supernatural
way that will defeat and humiliate ALL oponents. Notice that, in
Ezekiel 39:12, God will defeat the enemies of Israel with so much intensity
that the Israeli will spend seven years burying the enemy bodies and
cleaning the invaded land.
The prophecy ensures
that, in a near feature, the invasion will occurr and we will
be able to see these marvelous miracles from God by protecting
