Ukraine and the ‘War of Gog and Magog’

Life Verse for Pastor Dewey Moede

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” -Acts 20:24

Ukraine and the ‘War of Gog and Magog’

by David R. Parsons, ICEJ Vice President & Senior Spokesman

Though many world leaders expressed surprise, it should have been easy to predict that Russia was going to invade Ukraine. After all, Western intelligence agencies had been outing the Kremlin’s war plans for weeks.

It also was quite predictable that many Christians would instantly start connecting this conflict to the “War of Gog and Magog,” the last days’ global confrontation described in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. As my colleague Malcolm Hedding once observed, the speculation about Gog and Magog seems to ramp up “every time Vladimir Putin sneezes.”

Indeed, I have witnessed endless speculation about the onset of this prophesied battle throughout my entire 50 years of walking with the Lord. And to the world as well as the Israeli media, the sudden excitement among Christians about Bible prophecy being fulfilled amid an ongoing calamity like Ukraine can come over as odd and, even worse, quite scary.

Most of the speculation about Gog and Magog has centered around Russia, or the former Soviet Union, and their allies coming against tiny Israel. Some view it as an imminent war which could be triggered any day now. Others conflate the war of Gog and Magog with the Battle of Armageddon, insisting they are the same conflict. Yet others place it at the end of the Millennium, relying on additional prophetic passages found in the New Testament.

So what exactly is the War of Gog and Magog? And does it really have anything to do with the horrific war now raging in Ukraine?

ICEJ Expands Efforts to Bring Ukrainian Jews to Israel

As the brutal Russian shelling of Ukrainian cities continues, a massive operation is well underway to evacuate thousands of endangered Jews from the war-torn country and bring them to safety in Israel. The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is at the center of the action, helping to fund the Jewish Agency For Israel’s urgent rescue and Aliyah efforts, while also engaging in parallel activities on the ground in Ukraine and neighboring countries, as well as assisting Ukrainian Jews who have already reached Israel.

Speaking on the ICEJ’s weekly webinar on Thursday, Roman Polonsky, the Jewish Agency ’s coordinator for the former Soviet Republics and Eastern Europe, said that over 1,000 Ukrainian Jewish immigrants arrived in Israel this week. But he added that thousands more are still making their way into neighboring countries, being housed and processed for immigration, and waiting for flights to Israel. He also said JAFI expects as many as 15,000 Ukrainian Jews to make Aliyah by the end of this year, with possibly even larger numbers coming from Russia due to the faltering economy there.

“This is a women’s Aliyah right now,” said Polonsky. “It is heart-breaking to see so many mothers and wives arriving without the men, who had to stay behind to defend Ukraine.”

So, here is your chance to be part of an urgent, historic and even prophetic wave of Aliyah. Please give your best gift today to help support our expanding efforts to evacuate Jews from Ukraine and bring them home safely to Israel.
