“O mortal, turn your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Prophesy against him.” Ezekiel 38:2 (The Israel Bible™)
BIN: Last week President Trump stood strong against Iran, threatening to answer any hostilities in kind. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani responded with a cryptic message; numbers that several experts believe was a coded confession, claiming responsibility for an unsolved terrorist attack that killed 270 people 32 years ago.
Last week, Trump gave a specific number to his threat; 52 Iranian sites would be destroyed, signifying the number of American diplomats and citizens who were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981, in the U.S Embassy in Tehran in the wake of the Iranian Revolution.
….targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!
The pre-Messiah war prophesied to be instigated by Persia/Iran is referred to as Gog and Magog. In Gematria (Hebrew numerology), the word Magog (מגוג) equals precisely 52, which is also equal to Elijah (אליהו) the harbinger that will announce the arrival of the Messiah. Read More …
Opinion: “But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” Daniel 12:4
Both Biblical languages (Hebrew and Greek) gave numerical values to the letters of their alphabets to compensate for their lack of a direct numbering system. The Romans used Roman Numerals, assigning numerical values to a few letters, and today much of the world uses Hindu-Arabic Numerals, value specific symbols originally developed in the 2nd century BC but not widely used until several hundred years later.
From the article:
Indeed, the number 52, signifying Magog, appeared several times in the ensuing tensions. In fact, other numbers appeared in the exchanges that signified growing tensions between Iran and the U.S.
@realHassan Rouhani (Jan 6) Never threaten the Iranian nation Those who refer to the number 52 should also remember the number 290. #IR655
In his tweet, the Iranian president was referring to IR 655, Iran Air Flight 655, a passenger flight from Tehran to Dubai that was shot down on 3 July 1988 by a surface-to-air missile fired from USS Vincennes of the United States Navy over Iran‘s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf. All 290 people on board the airliner were killed.
Four points I want you to take away:
Religious Jews are keenly aware that the Gog Magog war is near
Religious Jews see the Gog Magog war as the final war before Messiah
Religious Jews and Muslims are looking for the Messianic age to begin
The Church of Jesus Christ is asleep at the switch
